Nintama Rantaro began broadcasting on the NHK network in 1993, and it is now one of their longest running animated series. The story of Nintama Rantaro is described as follows:


Rantaro, Kirimaru, and Shinbei are far from being excellent ninjas. As they embark on their training at the ninja school, they are joined by their tongue-in-cheek friends, ninja masters, and idol senior ninja trainees. All the unbelievable mistakes and confusion over the course of their training sets the base for loads of fun and entertainment.


The 30th season of Nintama Rantaro will broadcast on NHK E TV Monday through Friday during the 18:50 time slot (6:50pm JST) beginning on April 04, 2022.
