About the Program
“A Merciless Life and Death: Ninja Anime Classics”
Shocking Truth Sure to Betray Even the Most Fanatical of Ninja Fans

The JVTA Special Anime Program proudly presents Sasuke and Kamui: The Lone Ninja, two animated TV series, both of which have never been officially released outside Japan. First aired in the late 1960s, these series are considered pivotal in the history of Japanese anime. Based on manga by the legendary artist Sanpei Shirato, both vividly illustrate the struggles of people in feudal Japan through the eyes of ninja warriors. The three episodes specially selected for this program proved to Japan that anime could portray chaos, madness, and the ruthlessness of the real world. It’s hard to believe this shocking content was produced and aired as children’s entertainment. The JVTA Special Anime Program will reveal what Japan has long kept untold to the outside world – the naked truth about the life of ninjas.

About Sasuke
Deceivingly adorable characters thrown into a world of cruelty, merciless even to young children.

During the feudal Edo Period, a young ninja from the Koga school, Sasuke, along with his master ninja father, attempts to fight off the ceaseless attacks of assassins sent by the samurai government. While Sasuke shows no mercy for his enemies, he’s still a little boy who misses his dead mother. Children are among the many casualties in the story’s frequent battles, underlining the helplessness and sadness Sasuke faces as ninja. This is a testament to the bleak and inhumane conditions of society.

About Kamui the Lone Ninja
Born into darkness only to die by the underworld code, ninjas battle prejudice and oppression in the shadows of society.

Under the rule of the shogun, a strict caste system left the majority of Japanes in poverty and famine. Kamui, born into an outcaste area, decides to flee in search of freedom and pride, leaving his family to join a ninja clan. He soon finds out that what he envisioned was merely a fantasy. He leaves the clan to become forever a fugitive. Based on the manga masterpiece by legendary Sanpei Shirato, anime series Kamui, the Lone Ninja is back for the first time in its original uncut version.
