The busty ninja babes are coming back for more sexy sword slashing action. The new anime based on Marvelous and XSEED’s action video game series SENRAN KAGURA will be co-produced by Crunchyroll. The anime series will be directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa and produced by TNK, with scripts written by Yukinori Kitajima and character designs handled by Junji Goto. Judging from the title, “SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI MASTER”, the anime could be based on the storyline of the third game “SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI VERSUS”, which followed the conflict between the ninjas of Hanzō National Academy and the rival Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy, while also introducing a third faction, the Gessen Girls’ Academy. In the visual below, we one of the Gessen Girls’ Academy students, Yumi dressing in a snowy white kimono. SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI MASTER is set to premiere this Fall on Crunchyroll.
SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI MASTER will serve as the second season to the previous anime series, SENRAN KAGURA. The anime is based on SENRAN KAGURA BURST and directed by Takashi Watanabe with scripts by Takao Yoshioka and character designs by Takashi Torii. Animation Studio Artland aired the series in Japan between January 6, 2013 and March 24, 2013. Funimation licensed the series and released it to home video in Summer 2014. They also streamed the anime as it aired.
