Although Akiyoshi Tsujimura is not one of the main actors in the stage play, he still plays a significant role in the performances. Hopefully, Tsujimura's injury is not serious and he will be able to recover soon.

This isn't the first time that a My Hero Academia stage play faced some trouble. The franchise's previous stage play My Hero Academia: The Ultra Stage: Honmono no Hero PLUS ULTRA ver., was pushed back in December after multiple people involved in the play testing positive for COVID-19.

My Hero Academia: The Ultra Stage Symbol of Peace is based on Kohei Horikoshi's successful manga and is the franchise's third stage play to date. The new schedules in Osaka have not yet been announced. The stage play is also scheduled to have several performances in Tokyo from April 29 to May 8, 2022.
