After waiting for almost two years, it is a matter of weeks before Under Ninja finally broadcasted. Now that it comes to this, the official already prepared a new PV and key visual for the series. Thus, making all of the information laid bare.
Below, we’ve gathered the information revolved the series that has been announced starting from the release date, PV, key visuals, cast, and staff. Read on!
Under Ninja Release Date
The rough broadcast estimation was already revealed back in February 2023. It was stated that Under Ninja will be released in October. Fortunately, with the new PV coming, it is confirmed that Under Ninja will premiere on October 10, 2023, on TBS. Unfortunately, the worldwide channel is still TBA.
Unlike the teaser from seven months ago, we have a clear understanding of how Tezuka Production will animate the series. As predicted, they will use CGI in the series. Though, the PV only shows the CGI in the first military part.
It also means they don’t blindly use it all over the scenes. As we play the PV through the middle part, the conventional animation is shown. It should calm down the fans. After all, they speculated this series will end up like The Way of the Househusband (2021).
A new key visual was also released on August 18, 2023. It shows the five main characters of Under Ninja, Kuro, Miracle Hibi, Suzuki, Kato, and Shion.

Under Ninja Story
The ninja organization in Japan was dismantled by GHQ after the Pacific War and disappeared. Unknown to the public, the organization is fully operational!
There is a rumor that over 200 thousand ninjas already infiltrated every layer of instances across the country. While an elite gets a high-paying job, it can’t be said with low-ranking ninjas. Usually, they are lucky to have a job assigned to them.
The story follows Kuro Kumogakure, a NEET who is also a low-ranking ninja. He receives a sudden mission to infiltrate a high school. The job seems to be easy enough, yet they set it as a highly difficult mission.
What awaits him in his mission?
