B'z LIVE-GYM 2008 -ACTION- is a home video by B'z, released on January 30, 2013. Available on both DVD and Blu-ray, the release covered B'z LIVE-GYM 2008 "ACTION" that toured in support of their sixteenth studio album ACTION and became the first release in the band's 25th anniversary celebration campaign. The video release was filmed July 5-6 during the band's performances at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan.

Footage of the tour initially went unreleased, with the band's ensuing twentieth anniversary tour of B'z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2008 -GLORY DAYS- taking precedent and receiving the home video treatment only a few months after it took place. Five years later, to kick off the band's 25th anniversary year, it was announced to fanclub members on November 19, 2012 that three previously unreleased LIVE-GYMs would be making their way to home video in three consecutive months to begin the new year. B'z LIVE-GYM 2008 -ACTION- was announced to be the first of the three, with DVD and Blu-ray editions announced for a January 30, 2013 release. B'z LIVE-GYM 2005 -CIRCLE OF ROCK- was announced to follow in February, making way for B'z LIVE-GYM 2001 -ELEVEN- to come in March.

As evidenced in the home video release, the stage design for the tour included a "magic carpet" LED screen by the design specialists at Barco. Known as the MiStrip, the ultra thin screen was given the "magic carpet" moniker due to its floating upward and downward appearance and cascading movement. The design was the brainchild of Mark Fisher and his Stufish production company, who had previously designed the titular "monster" from B'z LIVE-GYM 2006 "MONSTER'S GARAGE" and has worked with other rock acts such as U2 and the Rolling Stones.
