Ninja Slayer is based on the light novel series supposedly written by Americans Bradley Bond and Philip [email protected] Morzez. It follows average salary man-turned-vengeful ninja assassin, Kenji Fujikido, who gets possessed by a mysterious ninja spirit. Fujikido’s family was killed in the crossfires of a ninja turf war in the city of Neo Saitama, and as he gets possessed, he turns into Ninja Slayer to exact some vengeance.
