Ginji the Wanderer is the Autumn Troupe's third stage play. Like all their other plays, it was intense and dramatic. It was Tsuzuru's first historical play so he had to do a lot of research. It was also Sakyo's first time taking a lead role as before he let all the younger ones shine on the stage. His job in real life suits his role as Ginji Kazama, a yakuza, so he understands his character very well. Though others such as Juza, Taichi, and Omi struggled with interpreting how they act. The second lead was Juza, playing Ken Tatsuta, and he found it difficult to act without Sakyo's presence overwhelming him and their off-stage relationship. However, it was all resolved when the troupe members understood Sakyo better and could stand on the stage together as equals.
