posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Live Spectacle Naruto stage musical that ran last year will have another run this summer. The play will run first at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo, followed by performances at the Umeda Arts Theater in Osaka. Kōdai Matsuoka and Ryūji Satō will reprise their roles as Naruto and Sasuke, respectively.
The musical covers the manga's story from the first to 27th volume. The production includes drama, songs, dance, and acrobatics.
The musical held performances last year from March to May in Tokyo, Fukuoka, Osaka, and Miyagi. The musical then held international performances in Macau, Malaysia, and Singapore. A DVD of the stage musical went on sale last August.
The musical is part of the ongoing "Naruto Shin Jidai Kaimaku Project" (Naruto's New Era Opening Project) marking the 15th anniversary of Masashi Kishimoto's original manga. The manga ended in November 2014.
