is going to get a live-action adaption, but it isn’t what you are thinking. Naruto is getting a live-action stage show at Universal Studios Japan
; but it’s a live-action adaption nevertheless. From the 18th of July to the 31st of August, this show will take place daily, that's a total of 40 stage shows; enough Sasuke
to make even the most GARist man shed an emo tear.
According to Akibanana
, this will feature interactions between the stage show and the actual anime itself. I’m not sure how that exactly works, but it will feature all the jitsu action we all know and love. Also, there will be four different types of fans to collect, so you have to go more than once. If that wasn’t enough, there will also be popcorn packets with super cool (I assume) Naruto illustrations.
Naruto is super popular in America, why not bring the show over here as well? It wouldn’t be too hard to pull off, though it will also be hard not to make it look like one of those cosplay group photo shoots found at cons. Who’s flying out to Japan to see this? Anyone?
