ONE PIECE Kabuki Is a Real Thing That’s Happening
The Straw Hat Pirates are set to make their kabuki debut. The story will adapt the Summit War Saga and, giving newcomers the benefit of the doubt, will be easy to follow with no previous knowledge needed. That said, there’s plenty for fans as the characters will speak in much the same way as their manga counterparts. Kabuki alumni Ennosuke Ichikawa IV will take on the mantle of Monkey D. Luffy, as well as Shanks and Boa Hancock. In all, there’ll be thirty One Piece characters in tow. The play will run from October 7th to November 25th at Tokyo’s Shinbashi Enbujō.
