You're Being Summoned, Azazel Comedy Manga Gets Stage Play in February 2023



Following the well-received TV anime adaptation by Production I.G in 2011 and 2013, a stage play adaptation of Yasuhisa Kubo's comedy manga You're Being Summoned, Azazel is set to be performed at Mixalive TOKYO Theater Mixa from February 10 to 26, 2023, Nelke Planning announced today. The theater production company has worked on various stage play/musical adaptations of popular Japanese manga and anime, such as Naruto, The Prince of Tennis, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, and many more.


You're Being Summoned, Azazel was serialized in Kodansha's seien manga magazine Evening from 2007 to 2019, then compiled in 16 tankobon volumes. Its TV anime's first season was aired from April to July 2011, then its second season You're Being Summoned, Azazel Z followed from April to June 2013.


In the stage play, the demons that look cute when summoned to the human world are represented using life-sized dolls, and scenes from the original manga are recreated as faithfully as possible. Masaya Onosaka, who voiced the protagonist Azazel in teh anime series, reprises his role in the play as well. Japanese comedian Naru Kawamoto, who has also been active as an anime voice actor (Takashi Kawamura in The Prince of Tennis), is attached to write and direct.


Main cast:


  • Azazel: Masaya Onosaka
  • Beelzebub: Ryutaro Okiayu / Hiroki Takahashi
  • Salamander: Wataru Takagi
  • Akutabe: Yuho Matsui
  • Rinko Sakuma: Yuria Sato 







Have a stalker you just can't shake? Fear your spouse is being unfaithful? You might consider hiring Akutabe, a detective who summons demons to do his dirty work. While his methods might seem unorthodox, he always gets results. However, as powerful as Akutabe is, manipulating demons is delicate art. His new part-time employee Sakuma, a young college girl, doesn't get to spend too much time exploring the finer points of controlling demons before Akutabe forces her into a demonic contract with Azazel. Azazel is lazy, lustful and depraved… Everything you'd expect a demon to be.
