Ninja... Ninja were... merciless demi-gods, ruling Japan with their karate in the age of ninja tranquillity. But, "some" committed a forbidden form of hara-kiri storing their souls at Kinkaku Temple for future resurrection. Their lost history was falsified and concealed and the truth about these ninja was long forgotten.

Now, in the future where the universalization of cybernetic technology and electronic networks are God, suddenly, sinister ninja souls, resurrected from thousands of years past are unleashed on the dark shadows of Neo-Saitama. Fujikido Kenji, 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. 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 ninjas in mortal combat.

Akira. Spirited Away. Tekkonkinkreet. Redline.
These are some of the most beautiful pieces of animation ever made, and from this day forward, Ninja Slayer will be amended to that list.

Edit: With the inclusion of a spectacular dub by Funimation, this anime is now on its own list, its own transcendent list.

Studio Trigger(aka "the good parts of Gainax") have a storied history of taking risks. They're absolutely fearless in their work, and have brought about some of the most influential series to come from the Eastern Hemisphere. Ninja Slayer is no different, being a dynamic, daring take on the "ninja anime" genre that oozes with style read more

You need to understand something about Ninja Slayer, before even WATCHING it, or you WILL get the wrong idea!

A lot of you seems to be very confused, as to why some scenes are animated and some scenes are powerpoint. "Why are they doing this?" I hear you say.
Let me explain.

A couple of Japanese translators said over social media, (this is a while ago) that they were going to translate a "light novel" that a couple of american weeaboos had made. The american weeaboos made THE most stereotypical light novel that they could think off. (Ninjas, Hidden power, revenge) Basically Ninja Slayer in a nutshell. (Or read more

Absurdity kills reason. This is your power. - Naraku Ninja

I would almost be willing to rate Ninja Slayer a 10/10 based purely on entertainment value. One thing though. The most entertaining part about Ninja Slayer isn't the dub. It's the audience reaction and kids who absolutely don't get the joke. Here's your warning: if your idea of entertainment is purely based on pretty colors and flashy animation, PSST, you're doing it wrong.

Artwork and Animation:

Is a black and white movie inferior to one in color? Is a color movie inferior to 3D movies because OH MY LAWD THEY LITERALLY ADDED ANOTHER DIMENSION!? The answer read more

Remember that everything that is written here is part of my opinion and should not be taken as truth. You can draw your own conclusions about this series by watching it.

This review is free from spoilers.

First of all Ninja Slayer From Animation is one of those anime that makes a critic about the current anime industry, using - if anything - poor animation techniques, strange music and a really basic plot to bring the potential of a series not by the anime itself, but by how it was conceived... And once you get graps of it, everything makes sense.

This anime is based upon a read more
