     A Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kouen Mae Hashutsujo stage play (or ‘Kochikame‘ stage play for short) is in production for the first time in 10 years. A new TV anime adaptation of the manga has also been announced and a promotional video for the exciting stage performance, filmed in Tokyo’s Kameari area, has been released during the ‘Praying for Big Success’ event held during the Tanabata holiday celebrations. 


     In the video, the main cast of 10 people; LaSalle Ishii, Rina Ikoma (Nogizaka 46), Yuuji, Mikie Hara, Tetsuhiro Ikeda, Ruito Aoyagi, Ryousuke Mikata, Shouhei, Ryou Kitazono, Yukichi Fukizawa enter the stage wearing their character’s costumes to the tune of ‘Oideyo Kameari'(Come on Kameari). Thanks to the cooperation from people in the local areas like the Kameari Shopping Street, Katori Shrine, and the local children, the PV is full of fun and love for Kameari. ‘It will definitely put a smile on anyone’s face!’

     Have a look at the making-of photos shot during filming of the promotional video♪
