This stage has a long history, but this is my first time participating, so I hope I can bring a new breeze and create a good reaction to this stage. ‘Live Spectacle Naruto’ will be performed in Tokyo and Osaka starting in December. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the theater. Please look forward to it!”

There are many favorite scenes and many favorite actions, but I like his outfit and hairstyle during this period, so I’m really looking forward to it. Anyway, Sasuke is very fast in action and movement. I hope that I can deliver them with even more speed than the previous plays, so that you can understand how scary Sasuke is.”
