Osaka Shochikuza Theatre (at OSAKA) Theatre Information

‘ONE PIECE’, a hugely successful manga series, and Ichikawa Ennosuke IV’s ‘Super Kabuki II’ make for a miraculous collaboration!

‘ONE PIECE’ first appeared in the July 1997 issue of the ‘Weekly Shonen Jump’ magazine. As a book, the first volume was published in December 1997 and it soon gained a national reputation. The series has now reached 80 volumes and the number of copies printed of the series in Japan alone totals more than 350 million. As a result, it was awarded the Guinness World Record as "Most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author" in June 2015. Ichikawa Ennosuke IV is one of kabuki’s brightest stars of the future. With his wealth of expression and bold originality, he is taking on the challenges of both classical and new production kabuki.

This project undertaken by Ennosuke is of unprecedented scale, and was first realised in October and November 2015 at the Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre in Tokyo. Exceeding the limits of the theatre world, it became a social phenomenon. Now it returns in an upgraded form to the Osaka Shochikuza Theatre in Osaka.

The play is a marine adventure featuring the hero Luffy who explores the ocean with his diverse crew named the Straw Hat Pirates. They are in search of the world’s ultimate treasure known as 'One Piece' so that Luffy can become the next Pirate King. The play depicts the episode 'PARAMOUNT WAR' which is still popular among One Piece fans! Luffy engages in war determined to fight to the last in order to rescue his brother Ace who was captured!

STORY :

The Straw Hat Pirates have been dispersed in the battle against the navy at the Sabaody Archipelago, the entrance to the new world, and the next navigational step in the search for the world's ultimate treasure 'One Piece'. Luffy, now alone, hears of his brother Ace's forthcoming execution and hurries to rescue him. However, when Luffy breaks through the navy's barricade, Ace has already been transferred to the navy headquarters. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates fight the 'Summit Battle' against the navy at its headquarters.
