Live Spectacle Naruto Livestream to Be Held!

Good news for Naruto fans in Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan: the Aug. 28 (Sun.) performance of Live Spectacle Naruto at AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo will be livestreamed in movie theaters across Japan and in Hong Kong and Taiwan, so you might be able to see it after all!

Although it needs little introduction, Naruto (created by Masashi Kishimoto, published by Shueisha Jump Comics) is a massively popular manga representing Japan with more than 200 million volumes sold worldwide. In March 2015, it was adapted into a stage play with the title Live Spectacle Naruto, which was performed not only in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Miyazaki, and Fukuoka) but also in Macau, Malaysia, and Singapore. Due to the original, elaborate acting and the amazing visuals that made it seem as if the manga had come to life, Live Spectacle Naruto brought Naruto back into the spotlight all over the world.

And this summer, the stage show that made the world go crazy is being revived! Viewers can expect power ups in direction, some new music, and Rock Lee’s appearance. The live viewing will show the final national performance in movie theaters in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and all over Japan down to the curtain call, delivering the real-time spectacle stage show reanimating the story of the original manga for more fans to experience.

One late night, the mischievous ninja Naruto takes a Scroll of Seals that contains forbidden ninjutsu, only to find out it’s a trap. He eventually gets cornered and confronted with the secret of his birth. The Nine-Tailed Demon Fox has been sealed inside him since the day he was born… Although Naruto is shocked, the words of Iruka, a teacher of the Academy, reach him and he rises again. But even after graduating the Academy, numerous trials stand in the way as Naruto and his comrades fulfill their duties as Genin, each of them carrying their own fate. As they deepen their bonds and save each other, will they be able to overcome the fates bestowed on them…? The story follows them until Naruto and Sasuke’s match in the Valley of the End.
