    The 37th edition of the Spring Kabuki performance Shikoku Konpira Kabuki ďshibai at the Kanamaruza on Shikoku Island. The 36th edition was expected to happen in April 2020 but, due to the COVID-19 crisis, it has been cancelled a few times. In April 2020, Matsumoto Haku˘ II and his son Matsumoto K˘shir˘ X were supposed to celebrate their shűmei at the Kanamaruza. Due to all these cancellations, in April 2023, it is not a shűmei program but Matsumoto K˘shir˘ is on the Kanamaruza stage.

    Comments

    The world of Kabuki and the world of otaku collide one more time in Kabuki history! Resulting from this spectacular collision, a new genre, the Ch˘kabuki (literally Ultra-Kabuki), was born in 2016 [more details]. Nakamura Shid˘ shares the stage with the virtual 3D creature Hatsune Miku. It is staged at the Makuhari Messe as part of the Niconico Ch˘kaigi 2024 event, an important yearly event for the otaku tribes [dedicated website].
