You can also see the cast in motion via the promo video below. The promo shows actor Rin Matsubara playing Kirito, and Minami Tsukui playing Asuna. Matsubara also played Tokoyami in stage show adaptations of My Hero Academia. Tsukui played Harley Quinn in a stage play adaptation of Batman Ninja.

It’s not clear how much of the story will be covered in the Sword Art Online stage show, but it is adapted from the original “Aincrad saga” storyline, covering the cast’s adventures while trapped within the Sword Art Online virtual reality game. According to the official website, the stage show’s recorded lines will be based on the ones from the first season of the Sword Art Online anime adaptation. The cast list also features the voice actors from the anime, suggesting that their voice work may be incorporated into the performance. In fact, some characters like Suguha, Kibaou, and Akihiko Kayaba are only credited with their anime voice acting, which could mean that they won’t appear as an onstage performer.

Here’s the full cast list so far.

  • Asuna – Minami Tsukui
  • Kirito – Rin Matsubara
  • Agil – Aiichiro Miyakawa
  • Diavel – Arihiro Matsunaga
  • Ducker – Daiki Watanabe
  • Godfree – Yuki Shiomi
  • Heathcliff – Daisuke Matsukawa
  • Keita – Takanori Ezoe
  • Klein – Shuto Seki
