<2.5-Dimensional Musical> Touken Ranbu:The Musical “Atsukashiyama Ibun 2018 Paris”

The musical “Touken Ranbu” is based on “Touken Ranbu – ONLINE –” (DMM GAMES/Nitroplus), a tremendously popular browser video/smartphone app game where players train “ToukenDanshi” who are warriors representing famous swords.

Since its premiere in October 2015, the characters represented in an authentic way, the hirstoric story with depth and the live performance in the 2nd act, have won over numerous fans. Now, it has become an incredibly popular “2.5D” musical.
The first single CD released in 2016 was ranked No.1 on a domestic music ranking. The musical developed into a series, and musical productions were performed not only in Japan but also overseas. Live concerts titled “Shinkenranbusai” were also held, and a special performance was dedicated to Itsukushima Shrine, commemorating the 20th anniversary of its listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These innovative attempts have proved successful, leading to huge popularity at home and abroad as they continue to explore new possibilities of 2.5-Dimensional Musicals.
