Forgive me for saying this but I found this to be very embarrassing. A CEO dressed as Naruto for a marathon? I found the video to be a little ridiculous myself. Personally,I wouldn't do that. I doubt we'd find anyone dressing up as Naruto for the Boston Marathon,but hey,that's just me.

Do a Google image search on "Captain America Boston Marathon". That's pretty much equivalent, isn't it?

Matsuyama was ultimately unable to finish the marathon, running 22 kilometers (about 13.7 miles), a little over half a marathon.

Matsuyama-san is obsessed over Naruto. And when I say "obsessed," I mean his whole life seems to have been influenced by Naruto ever since he got into it. I've seen interviews with him and I've seen his collection of Shounen Jump and Naruto manga and merchandise. He's pretty crazy...
On that note, this is the reason behind the amazing quality of the Ultimate Ninja Storm fighting game series. He's not just obsessed. He's passionate. He wanted to do respect to the series. Even though it's been a while since I read the series itself, I have to say that Ultimate Ninja 2's Story Mode "summed up" the story of Shippuden so much more straightforward and powerful than the original series ever did for me. Not to mention, the character development... oh, I cried where I never thought I would...

Also, some minor trivia: Haseo from CC2's .hack//Roots and .hack//G.U., etc., is aesthetically and somewhat personality-based on a certain someone from Naruto... at least, until he truly develops into his own character by the end of the G.U. games.
And this has, indeed, been confirmed by Matsuyama-san himself. =P

You are not forgiven, but I will thank you for not posting with your usual formatting butcher job.

I've seen uglier jogging suits on people that really should stay covered up. I don't see what's embarrassing about his marathon and cosplay attempt.
