Previously, the seiyuu cast of Kemono Friends showed that they are not just voicing their characters in the anime, but also acting as them in the live-action stage play adaptation. Now, that very live-action stage adaptation returns, along with the seiyuu cast as well!
The AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo will be showing the new stage play from 13th-21st January. The staff have now opened ticket sales, and will run the show 12 times during that time period.
The cast includes seiyuu Yuka Ozaki, whose breakout role as Serval in Kemono Friends made her a star.
Serval actually forms a trio with Raccoon and Fennec called Doubutsu Biscuit. And speaking of Raccoon and Fennec, their respective seiyuu, Saki Ono and Kana Motoyama, also star in the play. Like Ozaki, they’re also reprising their roles for the play.
But Douboutsu Biscuit ain’t the only group to make it from the anime and into the stage play. PPP, or Penguins Performance Project, will also be starring in the play. Like the previous three, the actresses playing them also voiced their respective characters in the TV anime. PPP comprises of Mikoi Sasaki as Royal Penguin, Ruka Nemoto as Emperor Penguin, Kyōka Tamura as Gentoo Penguin, Aina Aiba as Rockhopper Penguin, and Ikuko Chikuta as Humboldt Penguin
Yeah, Grape-kun’s girlfriend will be there too! I wonder how Ikuko Chikuta is doing now after her #1 fan passed away?
