An original project by DMM Pictures and TROYCA (Re:CREATORS), Shinobi no Ittoki is being directed by Shu Watanabe (Re:CREATORS episode director), with series composition by Minato Takano, character design and chief animation direction by Isamu Suzuki (Bloom Into You), and music by TOMISIRO (Macross Δ).
The story reportedly follows the all-too-ordinary Ittoki Sakuraba, who suddenly learns he's the heir to a long line of ninjas after surviving an attack from the rival Koga clan. In order to survive, Ittoki learns to become a ninja of the Iga clan and joins the ongoing conflict.
