NHK World TV’s imagine-nation, an English-language program shown on the international broadcast service, has announced that Kengo Hanazawa’s Under Ninja manga will begin publication in the United States, Italy, China, and other countries in April 2020.
The manga takes place in a modern world where roughly 200,000 ninja live in secrecy and blend into daily life as normal people. The story focuses on Kurō Kumogakure, a ninja who is unable to find work. One day, he finally receives a job and begins to infiltrate a school.
Hanazawa launched the manga in Kodansha’s Young Magazine in July 2018.
