    Default Anime/Manga series turn into Musicals

    As a theatre lover I can't really stop myself speaking about theatrical adaptations of Anime/Manga series over the years from famous and less famous theatrical troupes in Japan.

    It is not very know in the western community of anime/manga fans that musicals have been playing an important role in popularity of a series.

    here is a list of the musicals I know:
    • Regular theatre troupes

    - Sailor Moon musicals, they run between 1993~2005. After a long pause they revived the musical in 2013 as a celebratory for the 20th anniversary.

    - Shoujo kakumei Utena musicals, they got 3 different musical stages in 1997, 1999 and 2000

    - Bleach musicals, they got a long run of musicals between 2006~2012 of different productions

    - Prince of tennis musicals, many productions between 2003~2010 and a 2011 one described as "second season"

    - Kuroshitsuji musicals, run couple of stages between 2009~2010

    - Ribon no kishi musicals, 1983 was the first stage, they got some more in 1998, 2001~2003, 2006, and 2011

    - Ginga eiyu densetsu musicals, running since 2011+

    • Special theatre troupes:

    - Berusaiyu no bara musicals, running ever since 1974 and still keep on going with 2 already scheduled performances for next years and many more for the years to come, Ikeda Riyoko herself have written side stories of her masterpiece for the theatrical adaptations.

    - Black Jack musicals, in 1994, and a revive earlier this year(2013)

    - Orpheus no Madomusical, in 1983

    - Ginga eiyu densetsu musical, in 2012

    - Meichan no shitsuji musical, in 2011

    - Jin musicals, in 2012 and 2013

    ---

    also couple of games which is Phoenix Wright and sengoku BASARA

    have anyone seen any of these, does anyone knows any other musicals or theatre stages of Anime/manga series?

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    right...
    I wish just for a moment that "STAGE THEATRE" was ringing any bells in this thread and that I was referring to actual real life actors on stage performing musical productions and NOT what happens in anime...
