Earlier this month, we reported on the upcoming NIGHT HEAD 2041 -THE STAGE-: a stage play based on the anime NIGHT HEAD 2041, itself based on George Iida‘s 1992 paranormal TV drama NIGHT HEAD. Today, we get our first look at the stars of the upcoming production in full costume.


The four leads are double-cast, with Team Black and Team White taking turns in the show’s main roles. Take a look at them together in the play’s new key visuals:
