They're making an official Naruto musical. And now, we finally get a look at the whole cast all dressed up in their Naruto costumes—and covered in grime.

Is "dirty" the new "gritty"? Get these ninja some soap!

As previously mentioned, the stage version is called Live Spectacle Naruto and features actors Kodai Matsuoka as Naruto, Ryuji Sato as Sasuke, and Yui Ito as Sakura.

We already got a look at the main cast, but via Anime Anime, have a look at all the principals.



Well, what do you think?

The musical begins its run this March in Tokyo, stage dirt and all.
