The Prince of Tennis Musical, also known as "TeniPuri Musical," "Tenimyu," or "GekiPuri" (Stage Prince), is a series of live action stage musicals based on the anime and manga series, The Prince of Tennis. The first musical opened on Golden Week 2003, and the unexpected popularity and demand for merchandise of the show encouraged Marvelous Entertainment to follow through with the series, each new show covering an arc of the manga storyline. 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. You can find here blogs, as you want! But characters' name is: family name+ given name and actors' name is: given name+family name, because in Japan they have Eastern order and in Europe and America has Western order. There are peoples from different countries - that's that reason.
The series has three kinds of performances: plot/story musicals (that follow the Prince of Tennis story), live concerts (out-takes with alternative performances of the songs and self-parody skits), and special re-runs. Graduation shows (so called due to the story's setting in middle school) are the last musical played by a same cast for the Seigaku school before they are replaced by new actors. The shows are, in chronological order:
