Short form TV anime based on Naoki Shigeno's historical gag manga returns to Japanese TV on April 06, 2018
Ninja Girl & Samurai Master (known in Japan as Nobunaga no Shinobi), a short form TV anime based on the historical gag manga by Naoki Shigeno about a clumsy ninja girl aiding Nobunaga Oda in his quest to conquer Japan during the Warring States period, is returning to Japanese TV soon for a third season, and a pair of teaser trailers have been published to hype up the "Anegawa / Ishiyama Arc".
The "Serious Story" teaser trailer (above) takes a more dramatic tone while playing up the conflict that pits Oda Nobunaga against his brother-in-law, the warlord Azai Nagamasa, while the "Battlefield Story" teaser trailer (below) samples "Ningyo Namida" ("Goldfish Tears"), the official theme song for the third season of Ninja Girl & Samurai Master.
Ninja Girl & Samurai Master is directed by Akitaro Daichi and features animation by TMS Entertainment. The third season of the series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, and BS Fuji beginning on April 06, 2018. Crunchyroll currently streams the first two seasons of Ninja Girl & Samurai Master, and describes the story of the series as follows:
The year is 1555, the middle of the Warring States period, and one young man holds on to a very big dream. That young man, known as an empty-headed fool, is none other than Oda Nobunaga. Enchanted by his dream, a certain young girl who admires Nobunaga swears that she will become his ninja one day. Nobunaga has one goal: to unify Japan by military might! Decorated by a colorful cast of characters, including the airheaded Kichou, the errand boy Hideyoshi, the tsundere Nene, the straight man Mitsuhide, and the half-dead Hanbei, this heavy-hitting wartime gag anime is about to begin!!
