The customer was planning to visit Japan to watch 2.5D musical, Fate/Grand Order THE STAGE, and I helped her to reserve a ticket. Fate/Grand Order is an online, free-to-play Japanese mobile game, developed by Delightworks. The game is centered around turn-based combat where the player, who takes on the role of a “Master”, summons and commands powerful familiars known as “Servants” to battle enemies. The story narrative is presented in a visual novel format, and each Servant has their own scenario which the player can explore. It has been adapted as anime series, manga, stage plays, and a feature films.
A 2.5 dimensional musical, also known as an anime musical, is a type of modern Japanese theater production based exclusively on popular Japanese anime, manga, or video games. The term “2.5D musical” was coined to describe stories presented in two-dimensional medium being brought to real life. 2.5D musicals actors wear make-ups and costumes that accurately depict the actors as the original anime characters, along with exaggerated acting that mimics the original expressions in the original anime. With the evolution of technology, some of the modern 2.5D musicals uses projection mapping, and special effects and stunts of actors attracted lot of fans mostly young women in their teens and 20s.
