Things will get rocking in Tokyo’s Ginga Theatre from December 24 –29. You see the Bakumatsu Rock musical will be there for the first time.
Based on the PSP game, the anime is already making anime rock history. Both the game and anime are set in the Bakumatsu era at the end of the Shogun’s rule over Japan where the guitar and mike (yes somehow microphones and electric guitars exists in that era) replaced the sword. The musical version should be entertaining with Kōtarō Yoshitani in the directors seat.
This musical will have an all-star cast with artists from well known musicals performing together including:
- Shinji Rachi, Teruma and Yoshide Sasaki (from the Black Butler musical)
- Yusuke Yada and imeru (from the Prince of Tennis musical)
Here is a scene from the anime to wet your appetites: http://goo.gl/eiu5bf
