Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto is adored throughout the world because of its thrilling storyline, action and the adorable Kunoichi. Recently, the official website for the Kabuki stage play of Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto was updated. The update included a new main visual which introduced four new cast members.

The cast includes— Bando Minosuke II (Naruto Uzumaki), Hayato Nakamura (Sasuke Uchiha), along with Ennosuke Ichikawa IV and Ainosuke Kataoka VI (Madara Uchiha). Both Ichikawa and Kataoka will be playing the role of Madara Uchiha alternately.
From what we know about the play, the first kabuki play is scheduled to be performed at Shinbashi Enbujo in Tokyo from August 4 to 27, 2018. It will take place twice in a day at 11:00 and 16:30. Now I know there is confusion about the two Madara, well Ichikawa will be playing Madara mainly in the 11:00 shows, while Kataoka appears in the 16:30 shows.
The play will be directed and written by G2. G2’s most recent work is the “Musical Bio Hazard Voice of Gaia” which is based on Capcom’s survival horror game Bio Hazard/Resident Evil.
Another confirmed news is regarding the music. The music for the play will be provided by Wagakki Band. The eight-member band is famous for its unique blend. They combine traditional Japanese music with the modern rock. This the first time for them to work for anything related to the Naruto franchise. The band’s leader/singer Yuko Suzuhana says, “All members have loved Naruto since long before, and we are so excited to provide music for the representative title of Japan.”
Personally speaking, Naruto is one of my favorite anime of all time. It is definitely worth watching.
