Studio Trigger’s Ninja Slayer anime series will consist of 26 episodes, each of which will be 15 minutes in length, Anime News Network reports.


The anime will begin streaming online in Japanese via NicoNico on April 16th at 11 pm JST. A TV premiere will take place in Japan sometime next year, and there are also plans for the series to be streamed online globally, although a schedule hasn’t been announced.
