Studio Trigger to Share New Trailer for “Ninja Slayer” at Anime Expo 2014



Anime voice over and music company STARCHILD have announced that the graphic novel series Ninja Slayer will be brought to life in a new upcoming anime produced by Studio Trigger, known for their work on OVA episode Little Witch Academia and Kill la Kill. NINJA SLAYER was originally written by a pair of American authors, subsequently translated into Japanese and uploaded onto Twitter in 2010. The subtle yet ridiculous ninja story soon became an underground hit, leading to the publication of the graphic novel in 2012.

The anime adaptation’s latest promotional trailer will receive its world première at Anime Expo 2014, during a panel held on July 3rd at 6PM.  Anime Expo attendees will be able to catch a sneak peak of two never-before-seen NINJA SLAYER posters, as well as a chance to receive a “Menpo” (Ninja Slayer’s mask) and a sample booklet containing the original NINJA SLAYER novel and a Comptiq comic book from the Good Smile Company booth at Anime Expo 2014 while supplies last. Attendees will also be able to purchase additional NINJA SLAYER goodies at the booth, a list of which appears below.

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.
