“Ghost in the Shell: Arise” Stage Play to Feature Real Active Camouflage; Second Round of Character Visuals Released

The stage play Ghost in the Shell: Arise: Ghost is Alive has gained attention for its released character visuals that show Motoko Kusanagi and Aramaki as if they’ve seemingly jumped straight out of the anime. The second round of character visuals has now been released. Five characters are shown this time: Togusa, Paz, Kurtz, Tsuda Emma, and Hose. With characters deeply connected to the story finally revealed, anticipation is building for the forthcoming third round of visuals.

The stage play will be performed at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre Playhouse from Nov. 5–15. There is a month to go until the curtain rises. Attention on the stage play is building for its use of theatrical 3D visuals, and it has also been revealed that active camouflage will also be used during the performance. It seems this too, which is said will only be realized on stage, will gather notice.

The round two character visuals give us a first look at Togusa, Paz, Kurtz, Tsuda Emma, and Hose. Playing Togusa, who has a big role in the story, is Kentarou Kanesaki, who has performed in countless stage plays including the Prince of Tennis musicals and the 2.5D stage play Dear Boys. playing Paz is Katsuhiko Ibuka, and playing Kurtz of the 501 Organization, which is also deeply connected to main character Motoko Kusanagi, is Asana Mamoru. Mamoru is a popular actress who is even starring in Prison School as Meiko Shiraki.
