Chainsaw Man Stage Play

The play is planned to perform in Tokyo and Kyoto, though no particular venue has yet been revealed. The Twitter account also enigmatically showed zero visuals for their stageplay at this time only showing off the bare minimum.

What little the website divulged was the fact that Fumiya Matsuzaki will direct the stageplay adaptation. Also responsible for writing the script of the play, Matsuzaki is also credited with his involvement as a writer and stage director for the theatrical adaptations of Gundam 00, Banana Fish, and more.

Subsequent announcements are soon to follow as the website has yet to reveal any visuals or cast members just yet, with more information announced at a later date.
