Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine just revealed that the Hyper Projection Engeki Haikyu!! series of stage plays is getting a new work this fall, showcasing the deciding match for the representative of Miyagi prefecture.
To stay on trend, Worry Kinoshita is returning from the previous five adaptations to direct and write the script. You’ll also notice several returning cast members as members of the Karasuno team like Kenta Suga, Tatsuya Kageyama, Ryotaro Kosaka, Kairi Miura, Kouhei Shiota, Yuto Fuchino, Kazuma Kawahara, Keita Tanaka, Naoki Tanaka, and Justin Tomimori.
What makes it a must-watch, you ask? The play-series is billed as a “hyper-projection play,” with video projections that allow for manga-styled speech bubbles, as well as views of the stage floor, and a revolving stage.
Don’t forget! A fifth Haikyu!! stage play, “The Giant of Beginnings”, is currently preparing to open on the following dates:
- April 28-May 6 in Tokyo
- May 12-13 in Hyōgo
- May 18-20 in Fukuoka
