Volleyball anime Haikyu!!—based on the shonen manga by Haruichi Furudate—is making the leap to stage play in Japan later this year, with performances scheduled to begin in November. Worry Kinoshita, who helms the Tokyo One Piece Tower stage attraction based on Eiichiro Oda’s mega-popular series, directs the Haikyu!! stage play, with a script by Norihito Nakayashiki.
It’s always interesting to see how these develop and are promoted visually, and we can get a small peek at how the series is coming to life thanks to the reveal of the first main visual.
The cast will be revealed soon.
