This anime, based on a DMM smartphone game of the same name, was announced last fall, and debuts in April. The plot has thirteen Buddha squaring off against the villain Mara, who objects to Gautama Buddha (called Shaka Nyorai in this version) having achieved enlightenment.
Kiiyan will reprise his role, Kokuzo Bosatsu, and joins Maeno Tomoaki, Morikubo Shoutarou, Suzuki Tatsuhisa, Kakihara Tetsuya, Hirkakwa Daisuke and others.
The Pet anime announced that during Golden Week there will be a live event featuring the stage and anime cast together. Kiiyan will join Ono Yuki, Ueda Keisuke and others at United Cinema Aqua City Odaiba for afternoon and evening shows.
A priority ticket lottery will be held in late March for those who purchase the stage DVD, to be followed by an advance lottery, then general sale.

T-cards are Tsutaya’s point cards, and they can actually be used at many stores around Japan (not just Tsutaya) and users earn 1 point for every 200 yen racked up on the card. The cards are issued by many places other than just Tsutaya (mine is a Family Mart T-card), and it’s not unusual for specially branded cards to be released.
And in fact, Granrodeo’s official site has announced that fans can now get an official GR T-card this spring!
If you are the patient type, in-store sales at Tsutaya and Asahiya Books will start on May 14, 2019. There will be a service fee of 500 yen (and possibly additional store charges).
If you’re a little less patient — though you still won’t get the card until May — you can preorder on the T-Fan site starting today (Feburary 19, 2019).
There will also be a card case designed especially for the card, available both online and in the stores. The case is 1352 yen (before tax).
Tsutaya is also offering a bundle of the card, card case, a rubber bracelet and either the limited or normal edition of FAB LOVE, which can ordered through their website or in-store. The special website page for ordering can be found here.
