The series, Ninja Kamui focuses on Joe Higan, a Nukenin, a runaway ninja who has left his clan and now resides with his family in rural America, where he is on the run from his violent past. Unexpectedly, he is attacked by a group of assassins belonging to his past organization who enact a bloody revenge on Joe and his family because of his betrayal of their ancient code. After he seemingly “dies,” Joe rises up again as his old self, Ninja Kamui, to seek revenge for his family and friends. As a 21st century ninja, Kamui compellingly blends old techniques with modern weaponry to bring down his old clan.
