Love. I think this flows throughout this story more than anything else. I’m will love and fight as if all the cast participating in this works are like my family and friends.
Kamado Tanjirou. And his strong convictions. He inspires me. Please look forward to it!
【Kamado Nezuko played by Takaishi Akari】
I’m really grateful to be able to perform in this play.
Her fondness to her family, kindness and being absurdly cute and strong… how will I convey all these parts that you all adore? I’ll face you all head-on with Nezuko-chan with sincerity!
【Agatsuma Zenitsu played by Ueda Keisuke】
I had been reading 「Kimetsu no Yaiba」 even before the anime started. When I saw Zenitsu, I thought, “If it made it on stage play, aren’t I the best person to play him?” (haha), even striking a pose!
He might be a incompetent at times, but when he has to get down to it, he gets down to it! I want to act out this type of Agatsuma Zenitsu with my all!
【Hashibira Inosuke played by Satou Yugo】
When I was reading and watching the 「Kimetsu no Yaiba」 manga and anime, I know the contents didn’t change, but I got the impression that the way things were presented did.
The stage too, has its own advantages, and I want to make it the best production. Furthermore, I’ll do my best at my muscle training.
【Tomioka Giyuu played by Honda Reo】
There’s a lot of things that make 「Kimetsu no Yaiba」 that everyone love so muchso lovable.
I myself am a fan as well. I’m ecstatic that I can participate in this work.
I treasure the feelings I felt when I first started reading this, and such, I will play Tomioka carefully.
【Urokodaki Sakonji played by Takagi Tomoyuki】
I’m so grateful to be allowed to play the part of Urokodaki Sakonji, the role of an important 「trainer」. I’ll go to great lengths to bring the deep affection of Urokodaki Sakonji, whom I like, into existence on the stage. Please look forward to it.
【Tamayo played by Maihane Mimi】
I have been reading 「Kimetsu no Yaiba」, so I’m glad that it got a stage play adaptation!!
Though I love the pressure, I will strive with all my might to make this as lovable as the original and the animation. I’ll invite you all to the world of Kimetsu.
【Yushiro played by Satou Hisanori】
I liked it when I first read it when it began serialization, so I’m happy to be able to act at Yushiro.
I’d like to deliver the fun of the Kimetsu-verse without spilling a drop.
It’s for Tamayo’s sake that I will be doing my best.
