Yet another musical adaption of a manga is coming this summer. On Monday, a website opened advertising the musical BLUE EXORCIST: KYOTO CRIMSON CHAPTER based on the “Impure King Revival” story arc in volumes five through nine of the manga by Kazue Katō.
The play will star Ryō Kitamura as Rin Okumura and Shūto Miyazaki as Yukio Okumura. The stage play’s Twitter page put out character visuals for both characters.
Presale tickets are available today and general admission tickets will go on sale on June 18th. The musical will have eleven performances at the Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi in Tokyo between August 5-14. Diasuke Nishida will be writing the script for the new play, having also written the previous Blue Exorcist stage play.
