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.

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.

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.

After watching about five seconds of this anime, it becomes apparent that either the animation budget is literally the lowest of all time and if they drew any better they'd have to start selling their organs to fund it, or the creators spent a lot of money making it look like that was the case. Other aspects of the anime are similarly awful although it might take a little bit longer to figure that out. That being said, it has a humorous tone and the awfulness is tongue in cheek so if you're into really really terrible things you might enjoy this a little (although read more

Welcome to the Triggerverse: Shared Universes in Anime

Shared universes are a long-standing tradition in American comics and now all the rage in movies, but relatively rare in anime and manga. This has made Space Patrol Luluco - a series that's combining Studio Trigger's various other series into a single story - all the more unusual and exciting.
