Finally! The stage play “Tokyo Revengers” now begins, and I am filled with excitement since it has been a while since the last time I stood on a stage. I am nervous and I am excited. Excitement of many kinds.
The sense of learning how our practice turns out on the stage when the audience sits on their seats…
This doesn’t exist anywhere. I am honored that I can play Naoto on stage.
Together with those awesome members, I want to make this stage the coolest performance.
I have a wonderful partner called Kizu Tsubasa.
I always learned from him during practice.
I want to be like him , and we want to complete the performances.
Thanks for your support!
Matsuda Ryou/Sano Manjirou
My name is Matsuda Ryou and I will be playing Sano Manjirou.
The first curtain of the play “Tokyo Revengers” is now rising.
I dedicated all summer for this performance.
We will perform with full care to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
I want to believe the power of the members, the original manga, and stage play.
Although times are tough and difficult, I will do my best to deliver what I can from this work. I will make it with my spirit to deliver message.
“Tokyo Revengers” on stage.
Even if it’s lame or muddy, we intend to create a new era from here by ourselves.
Please look forward to it.
Jinnai Shou/Ryuuguuji Ken
My name is Jinnai Shou and I will be playing Ryuuguuji Ken.
The stage “Tokyo Revengers” now begins.
Honestly, it’s hard to find such a great cast as the one we have.
Each member feels a responsibility towards their own role and can also care about others around them.
The power of the work makes them do so.
I hope to create a memory of summer together with the audience and cast so that we one day may wish to travel over time.
Director and performance leader Ise Naoto comment
I found the members reliable from the first day of practice.
Everyone is positive, everyone is committed, and everyone is trying to be there for someone else.
It was an ideal example of how to support and enhance each other.
Although this work uses a lot of energy, I remember everyone was always smiling.
Believing the infinite power of stage, we will deliver time leap experiences unique to stage performance.
Each actor will strive with the responsibility of their own role.
The actors are always confident and staff keep updating the stage.
I am so honored that I am part of this stage.
Only thing that I still hope is to have a safe performance so that all 22 cast can fully accomplish their job.
Please keep supporting them.
