After actress Sayaka Kanda’s transformation into Junko Enoshima was revealed, a second cast member for the live action Danganronpa stage play has been revealed, and this time, it’s none other than NMB48 idol, Reina Fujie.
Reina will be playing the “Super High School Swimmer” Aoi Asahina which would be a good fit for a bubbly idol such as her… she just has to truly enjoy eating donuts… a lot. She also has to have good chemistry with Yukie Yamaguchi who will play Sakura Oogawa in the play which is titled Danganronpa The Stage ~ Kibo no Gakuen to zetsubo not Kôkôsei ~.
As a member of NMB48, Reina is also quite busy with her idol work, so Cornflakes has also released photos of her understudy, Nagisa Oshima as Aoi. Who do you think looks better?
Also revealed are Manpei Takagi who will be playing Kiyotaka Ishimaru and Yuya Miyashita as Leon Kuwata.
Spike Chunsoft’s Kazutaka Kodaka, who is one of the original video game’s creators will be supervising the Danganronpa stage play which will be held at the Nippon Seinenkan from October 29 – November 3, 2014.
