“Glass Mask” Gag Anime to Go Holographic in New Theatrical Event

Get ready to make your life more theatrical — the cast of Glass Mask is coming to the big screen in glorious 3D.



The original Glass Mask, which consists of a long-running manga and two anime adaptations, follows rookie actress Maya Kitajima and her pedigreed rival Ayumi Himekawa through the unforgiving world of theatre as they compete to see which of them will become the successor to their mentor. CG gag anime The Glass Mask Year 3 Class D transports Tsukikage-sensei and her pupils into the present day, where they use their theatrical skills to bring excitement and passion to the modern world.


This summer, the DMM VR Theater in Yokohama will be presenting a brand new big-screen installment in the gag anime series, featuring a new story and a brand-new (still secret) character created just for this installment. 



Plans for a BD release in Japan have also been announced, as well as two upcoming promotional events. The first, to be held November 4 in Tokyo, will feature Kana Asumi (the voice of Maya) and Rumi Ookubo (the voice of Ayumi). Tickets will be offered by lottery, which can be entered with purchase of the BD set.


The second event will be held January 21, 2018, also in Tokyo. The entire main cast — the abovementioned, Atsuko Tanaka (Tsukikage-sensei), Daisuke Ono (Masumi Hayami), and Yuuki Kaji (Yuu Sakurakouji) — will be present for this event. Fans who purchase the BD set will be able to preorder their tickets to this event.


Bonuses also include a sticker and an acrylic smartphone stand.



The 2005 Glass Mask is also streaming on Crunchyroll. The Japanese release of The Glass Mask Year 3 Class D goes on sale May 26.
