Great news for fans of Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn) today! Not only do we now have the dates for the stage play (March 16-21, 10 performances total) but we now know the cast as well! Unfortunately, there is only one cast photo out so far. But the cast looks to be a phenomenal all-star affair with some of the best and brightest talents currently working in the Anime on Stage industry. Cast includes:

Niigaki Risa (famously of Hello! Project) as Yona

Matsushita Yuuya (Sebastian Michaelis in Kuroshitsuji, That Butler, Friendship, The Most Beautiful Death in the World, The Lycoris that Blazes the Earth) as Hak

Masato Saki (Oshitari Kenya in Tenimyu, Tougane Chiaki in La Corda d’Oro Blue Sky, Tasuki in Fushigi Yuugi) as Su-Won

Higuchi Yuta as Yun (Wolfram in Kyo Kara Maoh!)

Kitamura Ryo (Toudou Jinpachi in Yowamushi Pedal Stage) as Kija

Takamatsu Kouichi (?) as Sinha

Kimura Tatsunari (Kaidou Kaoru (7th Gen) in Tenimyu, Kageyama Tobio in Haikyuu!) as Jaeha

Hashimoto Shohei (Nishinoya Yuu in Haikyuu!, Louis in Brothers Conflict, Kanato in Diabolik Lovers, Saitou Hajime in Hakuouki) as Zeno

Who are you most excited to see? Is Akatsuki no Yona something you’d like Anime on Stage to stock & carry once it comes out this spring? Let us know and we may just have to go back to Japan in March! 🙂
