You know an anime has hit the top charts when it gets its own stage play. Burning Kabaddi, the sports anime which premiered in April this year, has inspired an excellent stage play.
Sports anime stageplays are not just about a few random dudes acting like they are playing on stage. It’s about the drama and the fun that all the actors have which makes fans fall even harder for the series.
The Burning Kabaddi anime will receive a stage play adaptation which will run from February 18-27, 2022. Theater 1010 in Tokyo will be hosting the play.
A new visual has been revealed for the upcoming stage play:
The visual shows the character Tatsuya Yoigoshi whose role will be performed by Rui Tabuchi.
Yoigoshi is the anime’s protagonist who initially disliked kabaddi. His opinion soon changed when he watched a practice match in his high school.
The first and final performances of the stage play will be streamed by the staff, but details about overseas streaming haven’t been revealed yet.
A new PV has also been revealed where Rui Tabuchi talks about the production:
The stage play will focus on the match between Nokin and Souwa high schools.
Shatner Nishida is directing the Burning Kabaddi stage play. Cast members of the stage play include:
|Tatsuya Yoigoshi||Rui Tabuchi||--|

Kabaddi has less exposure than soccer, baseball, or other similar sports. So, now that it is receiving anime as well as stage plays, I hope that the game gets the attention it deserves.
About Burning Kabaddi
Burning Kabaddi manga by Hajime Musashino debuted in 2015. It was serialized in the Manga ONE app by Shogakukan.
Tatsuya Yoigoshi, a high school student, is invited to join the Kabaddi club of the school. He usually hates sports and thinks of it as a joke.
However, his views change when he witnesses a Kabaddi match, which is as competitive as a martial arts match.
