Latest tokusatsu film from director Koichi Sakamoto stars Kohshu Hirano and Shun Nishime

Ninja vs. Shark


We're going to need a bigger shuriken, because the appropriately titled Ninja vs. Shark live-action film is swimming to Japanese cinemas in April of 2023. The film is directed by Koichi Sakamoto (BLACKFOX: Age of the Ninja, Hurricane Polymar) and stars Kohshu Hirano (Ultraman Z) and Shun Nishime (Kamen Rider Ghost).


The movie poster for the upcoming live-action tokusatsu film, Ninja vs. Shark, featuring a sword-wielding ninja facing down a truly enormous Megalodon shark that is breaching from a stormy sea with its mouth gaping open to deliver a deadly bite. The ninja stands crouch and battle ready on a rocky promontory overlooking the sea as the shark bears down on him.

Set in the Edo period, the story of Ninja vs. Shark takes place in the remote village of Okitsu. Koushirou (played by Yuichi Nakamura), an evil cult leader, uses ninjutsu to ensorcel sharks and forces them to attack local pearl divers so the cult can steal the pearls from their mangled corpses. Desperate for help, the village chief hires Kotaro Shiozaki (played by Kohshu Hirano), a guard at a nearby temple, but Kotaro soon finds his path blocked by Kikuma (Kanon Miyahara), a lady ninja, and a gigantic shark that doesn't seem like something from this world...
