Reborn! The Stage July 10-11, 2021 Fleet: Xanxus & Squalo
A letter from Tsuna’s stage actor on Twitter:
As stated in the official announcement, the Osaka shows for Katekyo Hitman Reborn! The Stage -episode of Future- Part 2 have been canceled. Many people had worked their hardest up until this decision was made. I sincerely apologize to those looking forward to the shows. Personally, I feel heartbroken to part with the role I’ve been playing for so long in this manner.
Nevertheless, what gives me hope is how much the Tsuna within me has grown. He is no longer the No Good Tsuna from before. The Tsuna in Rebostage is surrounded by his Family now and has become a man suitable to become the Vongola 10th. That on its own makes it worth living as Tsuna up until now.
I’m sure I will still face a number of obstacles and difficulties in the future. However, each time that happens, I will keep in mind the sweat and tears I’ve spilled with everyone and face those difficulties with my Dying Will. I believe that is what Tsuna and the rest taught us who live in a better world.
“Kokuyo Arc”, “VS Varia Part I”, “VS Varia Part 1”, “Secret Bullet”, and “Episode of Future Part 1 & Part 2”.
To all those who have loved Rebostage up until now, thank you very much for all your support.
To Amano-sensei, Kokubun-san, Neeko-san, and everyone else in the Rebostage Family, thank you very much for everything.
Excuse my poor writing skills.
I sincerely hope I will be reborn in the minds of everyone who watched stage play DVD.
Takenaka Ryohei, Sawada Tsunayoshi’s actor
Additionally, here’s a post-script from his Instagram:
P.S. I was planning to take a photo with Byakuran on Closing Night T_T

I went through the first volume of 86 after watching the first episode because (1) I was impatient and (2) it was another distraction from my schoolwork (but uhm we don’t talk about that) and it’s obvious I’m all but spoiled for a good chunk of the anime. Tho I’m not entirely sure what volumes will fit for the whole anime, I think it’s pretty worth it for volume one to have all 11 episodes.
Anyways as for episode two, still pretty stellar production. I had chills throughout the whole battle sequence especially when the song kicked in. I just breezed through the fight scenes in the ln because my brain didn’t have the capacity to visualize them lol.
Also what I got the most was that I was cringing for Lena the whole time especially for the last part. I’m only just realizing that I didn’t get this feeling when I read the chapter in the ln because I was on Lena’s journey with uncovering the truth. This time, having seen the whole picture, I’m more on the 86ers perspective. I felt like I understood better how Shin’s crew must be feeling with this girl, safe beyond the grand walls, that wants to get in their space. It’s not easy to accept, or maybe even revolting, that she has good intentions because she’s still at the side of the people that drove them out. No matter what Lena does to be nice with them, she could never be one with their battle.
But of course this is all part of the development within the story and the characters themselves. I love Lena, she’s a badass but she’s probably also cringing hard at her earlier self. She’s gonna have to change but it won’t be just a gentle pat on the back.
You just know I’m getting desperate.
PLEASE GET MARRIED

Yay I finally got to watch the Anime Japan rebosute special (thank you so much dear uploader).
I just wanted to write some quick highlights. Actually they’re all Gen-chan (Gokudera actor) highlights lmao
They were watching and giving comments on episode 75 of the anime. Gen-chan said he thought Lal was super cute and he wanted to date her back when he was a kid lmao. Don’t know if I heard this right but he asked if they could pause for that one scene for him ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) wwwwww
*Gen-chan sees Lal naked* stands up, shouts “AAAAHHH” and yells “SEKUSHIIII” wwwwww Gen-chan pls
He was so energetic during the whole naked scene that he’s saying he will get scolded wwwwww
*Gen-chan sees Gokudera with the cat in the ed* “THIS IS EROTIC. IT’S UNFAIR” lmao
Ichi-san (Gokudera VA) says the line “What I couldn’t see was my own life” live. Everyone freaks out (me included lol) especially Gen-chan and he again yells “AMAZING” and says, “Sorry a commoner got in” lmao basically he was fangirling the most hearing Ichi-san especially because he said he was also keeping this line in mind when performing and he also said their telepathic connection is awesome lol.
Neeko and Yukari-san both noted how similar Gen-chan and Ichi-san are which is something I also felt. They look like they’re relatives lol
Yukari-san asked if there was a time they thought they were exactly like their characters and for Gen-chan, since he was a fan of reborn and he heard they were going to do a stage play, at first he was thinking kinda angrily “They’re doing a stage play? Who’s gonna be Sawada Tsunayoshi?” Then he met Ryohei (Tsuna actor) at a different workplace and he thought “What? This guy’s going to play Tsuna?” Then when they actually got to work and perform together, he thought “This guy is really nice.” lol. If I’m not mistaken, this was before he was casted as Gokudera although I don’t know what work they were in together. So that was exactly what happened with Gokudera in the anime/manga.
Aaaand that’s it for my Gen-chan highlights. Everyone had their moments but Gen-chan was super hyper that he got to me lol
The whole event was so much fun and I was so happy to see the anime cast. This is actually the first time I saw them in an event (there’s rebocon but I haven’t watched them in entirety). Come on now anime gods, give them their jobs back.
Reborn Special at Anime Japan

Or, “In this post, makeste essays about KHR, and the ephemeral nature of youth.”
So as previously mentioned, I have been rereading Katekyo Hitman Reborn, a series which came out fourteen years ago (a.k.a. long enough that there are people who are now Tsuna’s age that weren’t even born yet when the manga first debuted). This series ended in November 2012 (a.k.a. the last time the U.S. elected a President that wasn’t evil). Five and a half years later, I still haven’t gotten over it.
And here is the thing—KHR, while certainly a successful series and one that I love, was never anything particularly special. By which I mean it wasn’t one of the all-time greats. It had a lot of flaws, and even the things it was good at had by and large been done before in other series, and in many cases, done better. It’s not one of the series I mention when people ask me for anime and manga recs. I would not put it on a top ten list of must-sees or must-reads. (The one exception is the Varia Arc; this absolutely is in my top ten shounen battle arcs, and eleven years later it still kicks ass.)
The humor (although I love it! so much!) is not everyone’s cup of tea. The art style starts out kinda rough, then gets really good for a while, but then starts to deteriorate toward the end of the Future Arc (although the characters are still as pretty as a Marvel Chris at sunrise). The plot has brief moments of brilliance, but tends to fall flat on its face at critical moments. It’s got issues with its representation of female characters. And so on and so on. The point is, it’s far from perfect.
The question that I periodically ask myself, then, is: Why is this series my favorite ever? What the hell is it about KHR that captures my mind’s attention so insistently? What is it about this series that I just haven’t seemed to be able to find anywhere else?
Reactions or more like random thoughts I took down lol. I actually got to watch the 1st play last kinda like how I started the anime from the future arc and went back 😂 I haven’t watched the backstage extras so maybe I’ll add (someday).
I’m gonna end here and maybe make a separate thing for the cast greetings but overall that was so much fun and the cast is spot on and superb. Can’t wait to watch the making footage.
