The manga creator quartet CLAMP drafted the Moon Saga Yoshitsune Hiden (Moon Saga: The Secret of Yoshitsune) stage play with singer Gackt in the lead role, and the play will run in Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Osaka between July 15 and August 26 of next year.
Gackt will play the title role of Minamoto no Yoshitsune, a general who was critical to the Genpei War that inspired the literary classic Heike Monogatari (Tale of the Heike). The play's version of Yoshitsune will possess strange powers.
Before the play opens, there will be a manga series in a Kodansha manga magazine. The producers are then planning to develop the project into anime, game, film, and other venues.
