This week at their Anime Expo panel, Studio Trigger announced a few more details regarding their Ninja Slayer anime, which they are producing for a 2015 release.
Titled Ninja Slayer From Animation, the anime will be based on the Ninja Slayer book by Bradley Bond and Philp Morzez. It will be directed by Akira Amemiya, one of the directors of Kill la Kill, and the main theme will be performed by Boom Boom Satellites.
Here’s a summary of the story:
Kenji Fujikido is a salaryman whose wife and child were killed in a ninja turf war. In a brush with his own death, Fujikido is possessed by an enigmatic ninja soul known as Naraku Ninja. Fujikido cheats death and becomes “Ninja Slayer” -a Grim Reaper destined to kill evil ninja, committed to a personal war of vengeance. Set in the dystopian underworld of Neo-Saitama, Ninja Slayer takes on Soukai Syndicate ninja in mortal combat.
