Musical: Prince of Tennis (ミュージカル・テニスの王子様, Myūjikaru Tenisu no Ōji-sama), also known as TenniMu (テニミュ, TeniMyu) for short, is a series of live action stage musicals directed by Yukio Ueshima based on the manga series The Prince of Tennis created by Takeshi Konomi and serialized by Shueisha in Weekly Shōnen Jump.

The first musical premièred in the Golden Week of 2003,[1][2] and the unexpected popularity, especially among girls,[3] and requests for merchandise of the show encouraged Marvelous Entertainment to follow through with the series. Each new show covers an arc of the manga storyline, though adaptations to the original story were made to fit the format. Female characters were removed, and irrelevant scenes or minor arcs were cut to move the plot forward.[2]

At the start of the production, tickets did not sell out and the type of production was merely an experiment. Manga-based musicals were not frequently seen, if at all.[2][4] However, the musicals soon became popular via word-of-mouth and social media enough to demand for double casting of characters to handle the amount of performances and to allow for overseas performances in Korea and Taiwan. In addition multiple shows were live streamed into theatres all around the country to make up for the lack of enough seats in the actual venue.[2] Even Europe got a taste of the production, when three of the actors (namely Ryousuke Katou, Shintarou Akiyama and Yuuichirou Hirata) hit Paris to attend the 10th edition of the Japan Expo in 2009 [5][6]

In May 2010, after 7 years, 22 musicals, 5 main casts and about 150 different actors had passed,[1] the "first season" came to an end with the last performance of Dream Live 7th on the 23rd. Not too long after the end of the first season the start of a “second season” was announced.[7] The upcoming shows feature a completely new cast and a new script, but cover the same arcs as the first season.[1]

Synopsis[edit]

12-year-old tennis prodigy Ryoma Echizen returns to live with his father in Japan after winning the American Junior Tournament four consecutive times. He enrolls in Seishun Academy (known as "Seigaku" for short) and joins its famous tennis team, who strives to win the National Middle School Tennis Tournament. Though Ryoma immediately becomes a regular on the team, he begins to develop his own tennis style and discover what the sport means to him as he encounters new friendships and obstacles during his journey to reach the top.

Reception and legacy[edit]

Musical: The Prince of Tennis has sold over 2 million tickets during the first 10 years of its run and is credited with the growing interest in 2.5D musicals.[4] The musical productions were also credited for providing a starting point for young talents and launched the careers of many of young Japanese actors.[8] The success also led its initial director, Makoto Matsuda, to launch the Japan 2.5-Dimensional Musical Association in 2014.[9]

Musical: The Prince of Tennis will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a cultural festival taking place at Sunshine City in Tokyo from November 23 to 24, 2018.[10]

Production history[edit]

The original run started in 2003 and ended in 2010 with a total of 22 different shows. During the first show, only half of the seats in the theater were filled; however, interest was spread quickly via word-of-mouth, when audience members would get up from their seats to call their friends during intermissions.[9] Two weeks before the premiere of Remarkable 1st Match, Fudomine, Kotaro Yanagi, who played Ryoma Echizen, was involved in a car accident, causing him to be pulled out of the musicals temporarily to rehabilitate.[11] He rejoined the first Seishun Academy cast for their last show and finished up as the second cast's Ryoma Echizen.[12] While he was recovering, Kimeru was called in as a last-minute replacement before Yuya Endo was casted. Endo continued to share the role when Yanagi rejoined the production,[11] and he graduated from the musicals during Dream Live 2nd.

After the graduation of the second Seishun Academy cast, Hiroki Aiba and Tomo Yanagishita stayed on the production to provide guidance to the new cast members.[13] Aiba eventually graduated with the third cast, while Yanagishita graduated on his own during Dream Live 5th. However, Aiba and Kousuke Kujirai returned to the production later as last-minute replacements. Kujirai, in particular, returned for the third cast's debut showings of the Advancement Match, Rokkaku after Takahiro Tasaki withdrew from the show. The majority of the first cast members returned for Dream Live 7th to perform their roles once more alongside fifth cast in 2010 to celebrate the end of the first run, with the exception of Yoshitsugu Abe. Eiki Kitamura took on the character's role instead.

2nd Season began in 2011 and ran until 2014 with a total of 11 different shows. It featured an all new script and cast. The first Seishun Academy cast of that generation graduated at their own exclusive event in 2012, Seigaku Farewell Party, with the exception of Yuuki Ogoe, who would go on to play Ryoma Echizen for the entirety of 2nd Season. The next Seishun Academy cast, Ogoe included, graduated during Dream Live 2014, marking the end of 2nd Season.

3rd Season began in 2015. The eighth Seishun Academy cast graduated during Seigaku VS Hyotei in 2016.

Productions[edit]

Aside from the musicals, which tell the plot of the original manga,[14] Musical: The Prince of Tennis also tours with live concerts featuring music from the previous performances, known as "Dream Lives."[13] Live concerts featuring music from specific teams are known as "Team Lives." Some of the shows are also classified as re-runs of a previous production, or also include a "graduation show", a special ceremony held to celebrate cast members who are leaving the production.
