Initially announced for a broad 2023 window, the Under Ninja anime previously lined up October 2023 premiere plans. Now there are five more cast members in the lineup for the adaptation of Kengo Hanazawa’s action comedy series, and you can see their designs in the visual at the top of this article.

Cast additions, from left to right above, include Taito Ban as Kuro Kumogakure, Tarusuke Shingaki as Kato, Tasuku Hatanaka as Miracle Hibi, Atsumi Tanezaki as Suzuki and Daiki Yamashita as Shion Hachiya. 

The Under Ninja anime is being directed by Satoshi Kuwabara (Black Jack), with Keiichiro Ochi (The Quintessential Quintuplets) on series composition and Nobuteru Yuki (The Vision of Escaflowne) on character designs at Tezuka Productions. 

Denpa publishes the manga in North America and describes it like so:

A high school loner is given the part-time job of a lifetime as a modern day ninja tasked to perform international assassinations.

After World War II, Allied Command in Japan developed a new agency to help manage terrorism and violence within the Pacific region. The agency was staffed with ninja and they were initially tasked to handle domestic affairs. Eventually that program grew to its current form, managing 20,000 ninja across a range of domestic and international affairs. One of those ninja happens to be Kudo. The seventeen-year-old high school loser is now poised to be the next line of defense against a potential surge in foreign assassins invading Tokyo.
