It will star Teppei Koike as Kenshin “Battousai” Himurta, and they revealed him in costume as the character:
Shuuichiroi Koike will be writing the play’s script. He noted that this new production will be covering the ever-popular Kyoto arc. He also teased that Shishio Makoto and Shinomori Aoshi will be appearing in it as well.
