A new fad for anime fans reportedly emerged a few days after the “Naruto Run” event. Instead of running like a ninja, this time people try to imitate Son Goku’s pre-power up meditation, a.k.a screaming.
Several Facebook events for “Scream Like Goku” have already been planned around the world. Three gatherings are expected in the United States this week: Market Square Park in Houston, Texas; Rosa Parks Circle at Grand Rapids, Michigan; and LA Fitness on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.
The popular manga/anime “Naruto,” created by Masashi Kishimoto, may have already ended, but its spirit continues to live on inside the heart of many die-hard fans.
As a celebration for the franchise’ 18th year anniversary, many followers of the series posted group events on Facebook called “Naruto Run” that takes place in several locations around the world.
