The world of Shinobu Ohtaka’s fantasy action adventure manga Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic is coming to life in a musical adaptation, which is scheduled to be performed at the Galaxy Theater in Tokyo from June 3 to 12, followed by performances at Osaka’s Morinomiya Piloti Hall from June 18 to 19. Kotaro Yoshitani (Hetalia, Revolutionary Girl Utena) is directing the play, and a new video has arrived to offer up a glimpse behind the scenes.
Watch as the 10-minute documentary video follows the play’s three lead cast members—Yugo Miyajima (from Japanese-Korean dance vocal unit ORβIT) as Aladdin, Hiroki Ino (Tenya Iida in the My Hero Academia plays) as another protagonist and AKB48 member Nana Okada as Morgiana—below.
Miyajima closes out the clip by saying, “I hope you will see a new side of me on this Magi musical. I also hope that Magi fans who don’t know me will get to know me, and I will do my best to make this a wonderful and heart-warming stage.”
