The ‘reverse 2.5 dimension’ stage play Sabiiro no Armor has revealed a new visual featuring Sato Taiki’s character, Magoichi, and Yoshiki Masuda’s character, Oda Nobunaga. In the group visual, it now becomes clear which character each cast member would be playing!
Kentarou Araki is playing the role of the head and eldest member of the Saika Ikki, Tsurukubi, who supports Magoichi from the shadows. Takato Nagata will be playing the role of Hotarubi, who has the physical ability of a spy and was picked up by the head of the Saika Ikki, becoming their comrade. Yuichirou Hirata will be taking on the role of Kurohyou, an eccentric person with homemade guns inserted into his body who says his internal organs are ‘guns.’
Shouhei plays the role of Deku who, due to certain circumstances, has become a sinful priest and was picked up by Magoichi and incorporated into Saika Ikki. Yuuki Kamisato will play the role of Ageha, a pretty boy who has amazing vision and performs assassinations for the Saika Ikki. Tsubasa Sakiyama will play the role of Hototogisu, a member of a distinguished family of the Tendai sect who has lost his family in a power struggle. Rakuto Tochihara has been given the role of Mitsuhide Akechi, who admires Nobunaga’s perfect strength and ideals but harbors cruelty and hidden intentions behind his innocence. One of the four saints of the elite group at the head of Hieizan Enryakuji, Juzubou, will be portrayed by Hidekazu Ichinose. Teruma will play the role of Kenyo, the immortal leader of the Ikkou-shu who was a savior during the Warring States period and gained the peoples’ trust.
The visuals overflow with liveliness, showing each character with their weapons, called ‘armor.’ We wonder what kind of action will be shown on stage.
The Tokyo performance will take place from 8 – 18 June 2017 at AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo. The Osaka performance will be from 22 – 25 June 2017 at the Morinomiya Piloti Hall. Advanced tickets will be on sale from 10:00 on 30 April via Lawson Tickets at a price of ¥8500 (tax included)
