This Is Why Only Japan Is Allowed to Make Live-Action Anime

Americans make Dragonball: Evolution. Japanese people make the above. Case closed (or should I say “Detective Conan”? Aha hahahahahkill me). Yes, Japan is making a live-action Naruto Shippuden — that’s one where Naruto is grown up and marginally less annoying — for a stage show at Universal Studios Japan this July and August. I’m sure it’ll be goofy as hell, but at least it’ll be accurately goofy to the anime. Hopefully for the crowd, it won’t cover the filler episode where Naruto spends the last five minutes peeing on everybody. Although this is Japan we’re talking about; you probably have to pay extra to get into the show where Naruto pees on you. (Via AnimeVice)
