ONE PIECE Kabuki Is a Real Thing That’s Hap­pen­ing

Starburst Magazine - - Reviews -

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.
