The Knight has finally been revealed, as the official website for the live-action stage play adaptation of Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail manga has featured actress Minami Tsukui in costume as Fairy Tail’s resident tough-as-nails knight known as Erza Scarlet.
Previously, the website revealed Natsu Dragneel, Jellal Fernandes, and Grey Fullbuster‘s actors in costume, as well as the actors for Lucy, Hibiki, and Lyon. The play is in good hands, as director Akiko Kodama has a lot of experience in directing Shounen Manga-turned Stage Plays, as he previously directed the Live Spectacle Naruto stage play, which also visited Singapore and Malaysia last year. The play will run from April 30 until May 9 at the Sunshine Theater in Ikebukuro.
Based on the characters revealed, it seems that they are going with the Oracion Seis arc from the anime/ manga, however, as the play’s official story has not been revealed yet, we still don’t know if it really is the Oracion Seis arc or a brand new original story.
