News: More rival team members kit up for Kurobas stage play

The official website for the stage adaptation of Kuroko’s Basketball has filled in the remaining two silhouettes belonging to cast in costume, after revealing Kensho Ono and Yuuya Asato as the rookies Kuroko and Kagami, and Shota Onuma as their Tōō Academy rival Daiki Aomine earlier this month. In the visual below, Mario Kuroba and Ryō Hatakeyama step up to their starting positions as Ryōta Kise (third from left) and Shintarō Midorima (second from right).


Kensho Ono seems a natural fit for playing Kuroko, as he’s been the character’s voice in the anime since 2012, and he certainly looks the part in this previously released teaser visual of him striking a pose alongside Kagami and Aomine.

Here is the rest of the cast for Kuroko’s team from Seirin High and their rivals:
