"Zombie Land Saga" as a stage performance!
When I first heard it, I honestly doubted my ears (haha), however when I was shown the audition videos, I was really excited that the work was trying to open up a new world.
I have always likes the stage and plays, but to see "Zombieland Saga" on stage!
Takanashi Rin, who plays Hoshikawa Lily, is a dancer who was actually doing Lily's motion capture in TV animation, and I recommended her because her dance was not only crisp but also energetic which is similar to Lily. With a lot of highlights being expected, the stage "Zombie Land Saga Stage de Dawn!" is something you cannot miss.
Please look forward to it!
