Second chapter based on Die Neue These premieres in May
The epic space opera Legend of the Galactic Heroes continues on stage this May — and fans in Japan needing to catch up can do so via a televised encore.
Based on the recent anime Die Neue These, the new adaptation staged its first chapter this past October. This version follows 11 stage plays put on between 2011 and 2015. This "New Stage Series" specifically follows the aesthetic of the recent anime release, and joins the many multimedia adaptations of previous years — including manga, OVAs, and anime films.
The encore will be broadcast March 17.
The second play, titled Legend of the Galactic Heroes ~Chapter 2: Every Person's Star~ will be performed at Tokyo DiverCity Plaza from May 30 to June 2.
