Berryz Kobo & C-ute - Stage Play

the girls are back!!!
and don't they look amazing

Beginning on August 16th, Hello! Project groups C-ute and Berryz Koubou will be starring in a female stage adaption of the popular sci-fi novel, “Sengoku Jieitai“!

The story revolves around a inexperienced battle unit who accidentally travels back in time to the Sengoku era, a time of social, political, and military conflict that eventually resulted in the unification of Japan under the Tokugawa Shogunate . “Sengoku Jieitai” has already seen two movie adaptations, one starring Chiba Shinichi in 1979, and another more recent adaption starring Eguchi Yosuke in 2006.

Berryz Koubou and C-ute will do their own ‘female version’ of the story, which will open for the first time on August 16th at the Ikebukuro Sunshine Theater. In this version, each group will play two separate platoons. The twelve girls will also be split into two theater groups, allowing them to perform more often: the “Moonlight” group (Shimizu Saki, Tokunaga Chinami, Okai Chisato, Suzuki Airi, Tsugunaga Momoko, and Hagiwara Mai) and the “Whirlwind” group (Sudo Maasa, Kumai Yurina, Sugaya Risako, Nakajima Saki, Natsuyaki Miyabi, and Yajima Maimi).

“Hearing that Berryz Koubou and C-ute will be performing ‘Sengoku Jieitai’, which has been turned into a movie, makes me really nervous,” admitted Berryz Koubou captain Shimizu Saki. C-ute’s leader Yajima Maimi also chimed in, “I’m both nervous and grateful about being able to perform a wonderful work like ‘Sengoku Jieitai’ on stage.”
