Ninja Kamui will follow Joe Higan who is a Nukenin, a former ninja having escaped his clan and hiding from his violent past, in rural America, and who now has a family. One night, he is ambushed by a team of assassins sent by his old organization, who then go after Joe and his family in retaliation for betraying their old code. Rising from his apparent “death”, Joe will reappear under his former name, Ninja Kamui, to avenge his family and friends. Kamui is a 21st century ninja, an anachronism that pits his ancient skills against technologically advanced weapons with brutal finesse. He will have to face trained assassins, combat cyborgs and rival ninjas to bring down the clan that created him.

The director of the series, Sung Hoo Park, is known for directing the adaptation of The God of High Schooland more recently for the series Jujutsu Kaisen as well as the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0. And Takashi Okazaki should be in charge of character designhaving already worked on many large projects such as Star Wars: Visions (Episode 1: The Duel), Batman: Ninja or afro samurai. He was also the artistic director of Sound and Fury on Netflix, an animated visual album featuring the tracks of American artist Sturgill Simpson.
