One of the famous Shonen Jump series that roared into a massively popular anime series, Naruto is adapted into live action musical play beginning this month in Japan. The play is part of Naruto Shin Jidai Kaimaku Project (Naruto’s New Era Opening Project).

The play is still ongoing in Japan, making tours in a few cities in the country but knowing the massive appeal of the franchise in South East Asia, the play will also be touring Singapore, Malaysia and Macau too. The Singaporean gig is scheduled around 6-7 June 2015 at Resort’s World Theatre while it will be held in The Venetian, Macao on 22 – 24 May. Now, for the Malaysian leg, the musical will be happening on 30 – 31 May 2015 at the Malaysian International Exhibition & Convention Center near MINES, Seri Kembangan Selangor.

How good is their production value and their costumes? You can check it out below to gauge just how serious they are in bringing out the spirit of the franchise and making it live on stage.

Castings are Yuki Kimisawa as the veteran ninja Hatake Kakashi, Kazuhiro Hinakawa as the Third Hokage who is the leader of a ninja village, Miho Imamura as the mysterious ninja Haku, and Asahi Uchida as Momochi Zabuza, the main baddie. And finally, actor Koudai Matsuoka plays the titular hero Naruto Uzumaki, and Ryuji Sato plays as his rival/close friend Sasuke Uchiha.

Malaysian Naruto fans will have to fork out RM398 (SS) or RM298 (S) or RM198 (A) or RM98 (B) class tickets. TicketPro also gives the diagram to show the position of seats from the stage here:
