* Depicts the free-spirited life of Keiji Maeda, a Han Dynasty who lived during the Sengoku era as the most eccentric man of his time! ! *
Keiji Maeda is the latest work of historical manga that manga artist Tetsuo Hara has been drawing for many years.
It has been decided that “Kabuki Tabi” (original story: Tetsuo Hara, Nobuhiko Horie/illustration: Masato Deguchi) will be made into a stage play. Tetsuo Hara is “Flower Keiji”
―Kono no Kanata ni―” (original work: Keiichiro Ryu’s “Ichimuan Furyuuki”) and “Gifu Dodo!!
He has written the “Naoe Kanetsugu” series, and this work is also a super popular work with a strong fan base. This is a work in which Keiji visits heroes from all over Japan after the Battle of
Sekigahara, and many famous military commanders who are widely loved not only in Japan but all over the world appear, and their appearances are vividly depicted. This is also one of its charms.
* Keiji Maeda’s journey begins! ! *
This time, the role of Keiji Maeda will be played by *RIKU*, who is in charge of vocals in LDH JAPAN’s popular dance and vocal group “THE RAMPAGE”.
will be starring! We will create a new Keiji Maeda by leveraging the performance he has trained through dance and his unique physical abilities.
One of the highlights of this work, Higo Tiger Kiyomasa Kato, will be played by Atsushi Shiramata, who is active not only in straight plays from musicals, but also in video works.
We welcomed.
Furthermore, Gonichi, who becomes the main character Keiji Maeda’s retainer, has appeared in numerous works ranging from 2.5-dimensional works to straight plays and musicals * Ryo Hirano *
will be performed. Others: * Yuho Matsui * , * Takamasa Suga * , * Kaiki Osaki * , * Gaku Matsuda * , * Shigemi Tanaka * , * Kotaro * , * Risa Haruka * , *
We have a fresh and unique cast including TETO*, *Yume Taniyama*, *Hiroshi Ryokuni*, and *Tsukasa Hiryu*. In addition, *Moroshioka*, * Veteran artists such as Mayo Kawasaki* add depth and depth to the work. * Show off with the main story + mini live! ! *
We have prepared a mini-live for this work after the main performance! Please look forward to the captivating performances of military commanders including Keiji Maeda! !
*Comments arrived! *
This time, comments have arrived from Nobuhiko Horie, who wrote the original work, and on behalf of the cast, RIKU who plays Keiji Maeda, Atsushi Shiramata who plays Kiyomasa Kato, and Ryo Hirano who plays Gonichi!
* Original work/Nobuhiko Horie Comment *
It is difficult to bring Keiji Maeda, an extremely eccentric person, from manga to reality, and in fact, we have dared to have a woman play him. I’m really looking forward to the challenge of taking on that role in this play, and I think this cast will be able to bring the characters from the manga to reality.
* Comment from Keiji Maeda/RIKU (THE RAMPAGE) *
My name is RIKU and I will be playing the role of Keiji Maeda! ! I am still immature as an actor, but I would like to do my best to further grow by demonstrating what I have learned through the works I have appeared in and from the friends I have co-starred with! The entire company will work together to deliver a stage performance that will surely thrill everyone, so please look forward to it! * Comment from Atsushi Shiramata, role of Kiyomasa Kato *
This is Atsushi Shiramata, who plays the role of Kiyomasa Kato. I will be playing a character who has left a mark on history, so I want to study hard before taking on the role.
There will also be a LIVE show, so the cast and staff, led by RIKU, who will be playing the lead role, will work together as one to rehearse hard to create a work that is unique.
This is a work that I would like many people to come and see. Thank you for your support!
* Comment from Gonichi/Ryo Hirano *
This is Ryo Hirano, who plays the role of Gonichi. It is an honor to be involved in this exciting work that allows us to feel the faith and spirit of a turbulent time. I think that the individual intentions and misunderstandings that are unique to this era, as well as the contradictory trust and collusion, have something that appeals to modern society as well. There is no doubt that the action will be flashy and it will be a spectacular stage performance. However, Gonichi may not fight much because he is a Kyogen performer, but he does his best to add spice and accent to the work with words and movements, and to be like a lubricant.
* 【story】*
Bizarre people are people who love unusual shapes and eccentric actions, and live their lives according to their will!
A year after the Battle of Sekigahara, Hinomoto was becoming a world of peace. Keiji Maeda, who was once awarded a “discipline for curiosity” by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the ruler of the world, and ran through many places as a genius, is now living in seclusion in Kyoto.
One day, Keiji hears from Gonichi, a popular gambler, a legend about a treasure that is rumored to be hidden somewhere in Kyushu. Keiji, seeking the wind of Ikusa in a world without Ikusa, decides to travel to Higo in Kyushu, calling it a “Kan sightseeing”.
Waiting in the fertile land of Higo is Kiyomasa Kato, the Higo tiger known as Wasamon (meaning “weird” in the Higo language). Keiji and Kiyomasa are two naturally cool people who hit it off right away. Eventually, the two become engulfed in a huge conspiracy surrounding the treasure, involving the Tokugawa family and the Nanban people. A great show featuring the strong men who lived through the Sengoku period begins! !
