New Cast & Plot for Akatsuki no Yona Stage Announced!
Additional cast and details for the Akatsuki no Yona stage play, which will be running in Tokyo from March 16-21, have just been released. Fans of the manga will be able to tell from the cast list alone that this stage will be telling the story of the Water Tribe arc, in which Yona and the (Dark Dragon and the) Happy Hungry Bunch go toe to toe with a vicious peddler of the dangerous mind-altering drug Nadai, enlisting the help of a local noblewoman and her retainers to stop the trafficking into Yona’s beloved country. We can also look forward to Masato Saki as Soo-Won acting incognito as a “bodyguard,” and perhaps some of the famous friendship of Yona and Lili that starts to form.
Previously announced cast is:
Yona: Niigaki Risa (Hello Project)
Hak: Matsushita Yuuya (Sebastian Michaelis in Kuroshitsuji)
