The story then inspired comic adaptations from Kodansha and Enterbrain.
Funimation describes the series of “Ninja Slayer” as follows: “Ninjas.
The dystopian cyber underworld of Neo-Saitama is ruled from the shadows by an intricate web of drugs, yakuza gangs, and evil syndicate ninjas wielding fearsome “karate.” In a sea of the blood of his enemies, a lone maverick stands.” It goes on: “NINJA SLAYER is a ninja who kills other ninjas in the name of ninja vengeance.
A former salaryman whose family was killed by evil ninjas, Ninja Slayer cheats death and casts away his past to embrace the dark, mystical NINJA SOUL, a mysterious spirit that grants him great power in his quest for revenge.
