The Japanese authors posted the story bit by bit via Twitter and the first Japanese light-novel volume was published in 2012.09. The story is set in a near-future cyberpunk Neo-Saitama where the souls of good and evil ninja are resurrected. When Fujikido Kenji’s family is killed in a ninja battle he vows revenge. During training he becomes possessed by a righteous ninja soul, becoming the Ninja Slayer.
Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill) is in charge of production for the anime adaption that’s set for release during 2015.
