These musicals bring influences from manga, anime and video games to the live stage, and are currently extremely popular with Japanese youth (2.5D refers to the mid point between the 2-dimensional world like anime and 3D real life). One of the best known is “Naruto,” based on the best-selling manga about ninja. Special effects make the actors’ ninja techniques seem ultra-real, bringing the world of the manga to life on stage. This new form of Japanese entertainment is now winning fans around the world.
