Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
Last year, Shido Nakamura and Hatsune Miku worked together to bring a new kind of Kabuki to the world during the Nico Nico Super Conference 2016. Hanakurabe Senbon Zakura is the name of the kabuki piece that fuses virtual reality and kabuki and was awarded the AMD Award as well as the Cool Japan Award in 2016. With the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release, the rest of the world will finally be able to watch it, as well.
The DVD will be released on 28 June 2017. It will include English and French subtitles!! You can watch the announcement below.
