The theatrical stage-play adaptation of popular manga “Katekyo Hitman REBORN!” by Akira Amano commenced performance showcase in Tokyo last week on 21 September 2018.
Following up on our previous additional cast-reveal report, let’s take a look at the pre-opening day full-dress media preview conference of the main casts; as well as a photographic report of the opening-day performance!
The six members of the theatrical production’s main cast presented at the pre-opening-day full-dressed media conference were (pictured above, left – right):
- Ryosuke Yamamoto – as Takeshi Yamamoto
- Kosuke Kuwano – as Hayato Gokudera
- Ryohei Takenaka – as the protagonist of the story: Tsunayoshi Sawada (a.k.a ‘Tsuna’)
- Neeko – as the legendary Vongole Famiglia hitman “Reborn” and Tsuna’s ‘home-tutor’
- Yuta Kishimoto – as Kyoya Hibari
- Masanari Wada – as their ‘rival’ Mukuro Rokudo in this particular arc of the series
In her comment to the media, the petite Neeko (4th from left in picture) – who also previously provided the character voice for “Reborn” in the anime series adaptation of the series – said that she was pleasantly surprised when offered to play the role in the stage production. “Reborn” was a character she holds dear because he the character that debuted her seiyuu career years ago. She is very excited to reprise the role again – this time round in a 2.5D stage production form; to her this really is “REBORN!” in all sense of the word.
Let’s take a look next at the series of photographic highlights of the theatrical production’s opening day!
