The staff of the kabuki play adaptation of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto manga announced on Monday that Ichikawa Ennosuke IV (Luffy, Hancock, Shanks in One Piece's kabuki adaption) and Ainosuke Kataoka (Eiga Yo-kai Watch: Tanjō no Himitsu da Nyan! film guest voice actor) will play Madara Uchiha.
The play will premiere in August and will run at the Shinbashi Enbujō theater in Tokyo.
Ukyō Kodachi and Mikie Ikemoto launched the Boruto sequel manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016. The manga inspired a television anime series titled Boruto: Naruto Next Generations that premiered on April 5, and is ongoing.
Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga has also inspired a kabuki play. The play first ran from October-November 2015 at the Shinbashi Enbujō theater. The play then ran in Osaka in March 2016, and then in Fukuoka in April 2016. Theatrical screenings of the play across Japan premiered in October 2016. The new run of the kabuki play ran from October 6-November 25 at the Shinbashi Enbujō theater, with planned runs in Osaka in April and in Nagoya in May.
