Ninja Kamui is a futuristic action/adventure anime, comes after the massive success of Park’s recent anime film, Jujutsu Kaisen 0the seventh biggest anime film of all time and the fifteenth highest grossing film in Japan of all time.
Ninja Kamui follows Joe Higan, a Nukenin, a former ninja who escaped his clan and is hiding from his violent past in rural America with his family. One night, he is ambushed by a team of assassins from his old organization who demand bloody retribution from Joe and his family for betraying his old code. Rising from his apparent “death”, Joe will reemerge as his old self, Ninja Kamui., to avenge his family and friends. Kamui is a 21st century ninja, a shadowy anachronism pitting his ancient skills against high-tech weaponry with brutal finesse. He must face trained assassins, combat cyborgs, and rival ninjas to take down the very clan that created him.
