A few months back, I got to see the second Persona 3 musical—and I rather enjoyed it. So needless to say I was excited heading in to the new Persona 4 Arena musical. Sadly, I got my hopes up for nothing because, even being charitable, Arena is an uneven mess of a play.
Earlier this month we learned that there was a Naruto musical on the horizon here in Japan. Today, to coincide with Jump Festa 2015, we got a first look at the main cast in costume. And I'll be darned if they don't look the part.
This past week in Tokyo saw the end of the second Persona 3 musical's run. And while I had not seen the first, I decided with my vast knowledge of the series I owed it to myself to give Persona 3: The Weird Masquerade: The Ultramarine Labyrinth a watch.
With the recent release of the Persona 3 movies, it’s no surprise that next month will see the release of a new Persona 3 stage play in Japan. And it’s no exaggeration to say the cast looks excellent in costume.
