Parents often forget to tell us things about our families and relatives unless the topic comes up. Likewise, Shinobi no Ittoki’s protagonist, Ittoki Sakuraba’s parents failed to tell him that he not only belongs to a ninja clan but is also the next heir. That’s a pretty big thing to not reveal.
Ittoki eventually finds out the truth but not before the enemy ninja clan tries to assassinate him. Now, Ittoki has to train extra hard to stay alive, and that too in a special ninja academy.
The upcoming original anime Shinobi no Ittoki has revealed a new promotional video for the show’s October 2022 release. It features new characters from Ittoki’s school life and some incredible ninja action.
Ninjutsu Gakuen is Japan’s only national ninja institution which looks like a regular school but trains aspiring shinobis of the country. Here, Ittoki is training to be a fine Iga ninja and befriends some friendly people like Teruyoshi Kisegawa, Ryoko Suzuno, and Satomi Tsubaki.
But his dream of a fun-filled high school experience shatters when his childhood friend and fellow Iga ninja, Kōsetsu tells him about a traitor at the school.
Right after Kōsetsu reveals this to Ittoki, we see some badass and thrilling ninja combat as they protect their 19th heir from harm and train him too.
Additionally, the website has unveiled a wholesome visual featuring Ittoki, Kōsetsu, Satomi, Teruyoshi, and Ryoko.
It would be unfair if we didn’t reveal the cast for these interesting supporting characters after talking about them so much, so here it is:
|Teruyoshi Kisegawa||Aoi Yuki||Tsuyu Asui (My Hero Academia)|
|Ryoko Suzuno||Hitomi Sekine||--|
|Satomi Tsubaki||Miyu Tomita||Miko Iino (Kaguya-sama: Love is War)|
The casting and trailer have made me even more excited for the anime, and I’m sure it’s the same for you all too.
