     The world of manga, Naruto has been brought to brilliant and daring live in Naruto The Live Spectacle. For the new run, through powered up direction of returning Akiko Kodama and new music, a great staff looks to be a show on a whole new level.

     New key visuals preceding the first performance have been completed. Also, brand new character visuals for this performance have been photographed and will be released over a three week period starting April 11th.

     ●Ryuji Sato as Sasuke Uchiha

     ●Yui Ito as Sakura Himeno

     ●Kenta Suga as Gaara

     ●Yuki Kimisawa as Kakashi Hatake

     Previously announced returning players include Kodai Matsuoka as Naruto and Ryuji Sato as Sasuke. The entire cast looks to take it up a notch for the new run. Lead player Kodai Matsuoka has played a wide variety of roles including the image character, Seabreeze. Ryuji Sato who plays Sasuke is known as a mainstay of 2.5 D productions such as the currently popular musical Touken Ranbu.

     Other talented young actors worthy of attention include Yui Sato as Sakura who beautifully expresses her character’s one sided love for Sasuke and Kenta Suga as Gaara who played the lead role in the blockbuster stage production of Haikyuu!! By Hyper Productions. Other talented actors bring important depth to the production. These include the powerful Asahi Uchida as the Demon of the Hiden Mist, Zabusa Momochi, Yoshiaki Umegaki who plays Naruto’s master, Jiraya with a deft mix of seriousness and comedy and Hiro Yumi as ultimate enemy Orochimaru who’s captivatingly eerie vocals will fill the stage once more. Not only that but new character Rock Lee is set to join the fray. This only sets expectations even higher for the show.

     The cast members felt nostalgic being in action on stage again and put a lot of individuality into their characters during the key visual photography. We can’t wait for new information regarding the show!
