An audience-free stream of the My Hero Academia The Ultra Stage Honmono no Hero: PLUS ULTRA ver. stage play was originally set to kick off on July 17, but plans have changed. Unfortunately, the reason for this delay comes down to the fact that a pair of staff members have tested positive for COVID-19.

Previously, the standard performances of the My Hero Academia stage play had to be canceled due to the pandemic. Here’s a message from the production committee:

Thank you for always supporting ‘My Hero Academia The “Ultra” Stage.’

Before resuming rehearsals for the recently announced live-streaming of the no-audience performances, we asked all the people involved in the show to take the PCR test, considering the current infection situation in Tokyo. As a result, two people were found to be positive for the new coronavirus.

We asked the local health center to confirm this, and it was found that no other staff members had been in close contact with the two, as it was before the rehearsals were resumed. However, it became difficult to resume rehearsals, and after much discussion with the organizers, we have decided to postpone the show.

We apologize for the anxiety and inconvenience this may cause, and we ask for your understanding.
