Back in 2018, the popular manga and anime series Reborn! was adapted for the stage for the first time in a live show entitled Katekyō Hitman Reborn! the STAGE: Secret Bullet.

The story follows a young boy by the name of Tsunayoshi Sawada who discovers that he is next in line to become boss of the Vongola family. The Vongolas’ send their most powerful hitman to groom Tsuna for his future life as a Mafia boss of the family. And that hitman happens to be gun-wielding baby named Reborn.
The new stage adaptation is being directed by Jun Yoriko and written by Maruichirō Maruo.
