Vocaloid song 'Senbonzakura' selected as the source material for Dwango's 10th Nico Nico Musical


Dwango, the company behind Nico Video, announced today that they will be adapting Kurousa-P’s immensely popular Vocaloid song Senbonzakura into a stage musical, the tenth “Nico Nico Musical” they’ve done so far.

The musical, which will see a total of 17 performances held between March 13 and 24, features an original story dramatised from the lyrics Kurousa-P wrote for the song about a dystopian mid-18th century world whose denizens suffer the depressing effects of being embroiled in a war-time scenario, and will star Kazuki Kato (“Kamen Rider Drake” in Kamen Rider Kabuto) as the male lead Vocaloid Kaito.
