Produced by Konichi Yoda and directed by Kahori Kanaya, the show stars musical theatre actor Tsukasa Matsuura as the warrior Yushuua, alongside a stellar cast including Yu-Gi-Oh!’s Shunsuke Yazama.

The show’s tagline ‘You Are The Warrior’, reflects the interactive nature of the show. Every member of the audience will be issued with a wristband with which they can control what happens on stage.

This innovative production follows a modern Japanese trend of ‘2.5D theatre’ that mixes screen-based art such as anime and manga with on-stage effects to create a unique theatrical experience.

The show will tour in major Japanese cities such as Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka, Saitama and Yokohama.
