Move over Naruto and Sasuke because it’s finally Kakashi’s time to take center stage… literally!


Namco’s Shounen Jump!-themed amusement park in Ikebukuro known as J-World Tokyo will be holding a live event and it will be focusing on Kakashi Hatake’s ANBU days. Titled Kakashi ANBU-hen: Yami o Okiru Shinobi, the show will focus on Kakashi’s desperate struggle as a member of the Leaf’s elite ANBU unit where he uses his elite assassination tactics.


The attraction will be shown for a limited time starting March 21, 2014 and will only be shown in J-World until May 18, 2014. It will be displaying a full array of gimmicks and breath-taking fight scenes as Kakashi engages enemy ninjas.


To celebrate the limited-time attraction, J-World will be serving up some Kakashi-inspired menu items like the Grilled Saury served with Miso and Eggplant Soup (800 yen) and the Itachi failed brother fried egg and toast set 480 yen). Kakashi-inspired desserts will also be available during the period with the Konoha Scroll Chocolate Cake (650 yen) and the Kakashi Sharingan Sakura Cake (600 yen).


Kakashi’s anime voice actor Kazuhijo Inoue will also be holding a meet and greet session as part of the attraction’s many privileges. Inoue is also known for voicing Fairy Tail’s Gildarts and Madara from Natsume’s Book of Friends.
