‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ Director Developing ‘Ninja Kamui’ For Adult Swim

‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’ director Sunghoo Park is taking the reigns for a new Adult Swim and HBO Max futuristic adult action-oriented animated series titled ‘Ninja Kamui.’ The show is done in “anime” style and will be produced by E&H Production and Sola Entertainment.
Warner Media said in a press release, “Ninja Kamui follows Joe Higan who is a Nukenin – a former ninja who escaped his clan and is hiding from his violent past in rural America with his family. One night, he is ambushed by a team of assassins from his former organization who exact a bloody retribution on Joe and his family for betraying their ancient code. Rising from his seeming “death,” Joe will re-emerge as his former self – Ninja Kamui – to avenge his family and friends. Kamui is a 21st century ninja, a shadowy anachronism who pits his ancient skills against high-tech weaponry with brutal finesse. He must face off against trained assassins, combat cyborgs, and rival ninjas to bring down the very clan that made him.”
The group also released a promotional graphic for the series:


Park expressed his enthusiasm for the project saying, “This is a story I’ve always wanted to tell.”
“Transgression and punishment of a ninja who loses everything and goes out for revenge, and what lies at the end of his road. I am very excited about this new project and hope fans will be too,” he continued.
This comes with the announcement that ‘Rick and Morty‘ is getting an anime spin-off.
Adult Swim President Michael Ouweleen said, “Toonami helped introduce anime to a U.S. audience 25 years ago, and is creating new, dynamic originals for the next generation of anime fans.” He added, “These two series build on the legacy of those recent originals such as Fena: Pirate Princess, Blade Runner: Black Lotus, Shenmue the Animation, with Uzumaki and Housing Complex C, premiering later this year.”
Takeshi Okazaki, who has worked on such projects as ‘Afro Samurai,’ ‘Star Wars Visions,’ and ‘Batman: Ninja,’ will tackle the character designs for ‘Ninja Kamui.’
