The official website for the Hyper Projection Engeki Haikyū!! stage play series based on Haruichi Furudate's Haikyu!! manga announced on Saturday that the franchise will get a new play titled Hyper Projection Engeki Haikyū!!: Itadaki no Keishoku 2 (The View From the Summit 2) that will run in March through May 2021. It was also announced that it will be the last show of the five-year-old stage play series.
The subtitle "Itadaki no Keshiki (A View From The Top)" was originally used for the rerun of the first show in April-May 2016. The upcoming 11th show "Itadaki no Keshiki 2" will focus on the match between Karsuno High and Kamomedai High, which is held on the third day of the Spring Inter-high Tournament after the match between Karasuno High and Nekoma High in the tenth show.
The play will run in Tokyo on March 20-21, in Miyagi on April 3-4, in Osaka from April 9-11, in Hyogo on April 17-18, in Fukuoka on April 23-24, and in Tokyo again on April 29 through May 9.
The Hyper Projection Engeki Haikyū!!: The Dumpster Battle ran in Tokyo from October 31 through November 3 and ran in Osaka from November 7-15. Some performances were cancelled in Osaka due to staff and/or cast members testing positive for the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The play then ran in Miyagi prefecture on November 21-22, then in Fukuoka on November 28-29, and then in Tokyo again from December 4-13.
The previous play in the franchise, Hyper Projection Engeki Haikyū!! Saikyō no Chōsensha, cancelled its planned runs in Hyogo, Miyagi, Fukuoka, Osaka, and Tokyo in March through May due to COVID-19.
The stage play project was launched in November 2015. It has performed more than 300 times across Japan and has become one of the most successful so-called "2.5-dimensional plays."
