Sunghoo Park is on his way to becoming a person that the anime community won’t be able to get enough of because his series, Ninja Kamui, is already gearing up to be the anime that has everyone talking.

From the inclusion of high-tech cyborgs to the infusion of the past and present, the Jujutsu Kaisen director is sure to bring us a story that anime fans will be blown away by.

Want to know more about this upcoming series? We’ve got you covered. Everything we know so far about Ninja Kamui is right below.

Ninja Kamui synopsis

Inspired by the 1969 anime, Ninpu Kamui Gaiden, Ninja Kamui journeys the life of Joe Higan who decided to leave his old life full of murder and violence behind to be an upstanding man who cares for his loved ones. However, his old organization saw his retirement from the ninja way as the ultimate betrayal, and in turn, took the lives of both Higan and his family—or so they thought.

Higan rises from the ashes hellbent on revenge. His only resolve is to take down the group responsible for his tainted life. But this will prove to be easier said than done because multiple obstacles, including other ninjas and cyborgs, stand in his way.

Will Joe Higan ever be able to get his retribution, or will he, once again, be utterly defeated by his dangerous former group?

If this story sounds like something right up your alley, then have your subscriptions to HBO Max and Adult Swim ready. Deadline reports these are the only two networks that will air Ninja Kamui.

Adult Swim even took the liberty of sharing with us the first key art of Park’s latest project. Take a look here.

By the looks of it, Ninja Kamui will be an anime that will be a favorite among anime fans. If you already feel excited about what’s to come, stay tuned for more updates regarding this anticipated series.
