A stage play based on JUNI TAISEN: ZODIAC WAR is coming soon with performances in Tokyo and Kobe, and now the production has shown off three of its killer cast in full make-up and costume. The characters highlighted include:



Ryō Kitamura as Rat.

And Kouji Saikawa as Rabbit.



The original JUNI TAISEN: ZODIAC WAR novel is written by Nisio Isin and features illustrations by Hikaru Nakamura. An English language version of the book is published by Viz Media, who describe the story as follows:


Twelve warriors enter a death match, but only one can survive to win the ultimate prize.

Rampage. Weep. Kill. Every 12 years, the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac take the form of warriors and engage in the ultimate battle royal. They face one another in battles to the death, using all the powers of their star signs, and the sole survivor is granted the ultimate prize—a wish. Any wish.



The JUNI TAISEN: ZODIAC WAR stage play is written and directed by Naohiro Ise, and it features music by Go Shiina and sponsorship by Avex Pictures. It will run from May 04 - 05, 2018, at the Shin Kobe Oriental City venue in Kobe, and from May 09 - 13, 2018, at the THEATRE1010 venue in Tokyo.
