Shinobi no Ittoki Trailer
The two trailers for the anime give us a backstory and introduce us to the main characters of the anime. The trailer starts with an owl and a background explanation of the life of shinobis and how they have existed for a long time. Ittoki is just walking down the road as usual when a truck tries to run him over. After that, a lady comes to him and starts telling him about his fate. He did not know this but now he knows that he is the greatest ninja and the heir to a clan of ninjas called Iga. The trailer also shows how he is trying to adjust to the new life after finding out he is a ninja.
Because he is the heir, the other clan keeps trying to kill him. So bodyguards start to follow him around and protect him whenever they can. He finally has to decide on his own fate, does he want to die or does he want to become a ninja and survive. After this, Ittoki realizes that he should become a shinobi and the trailer shows his transformation into a shinobi from an ordinary school boy. Many important faces are also revealed.
What to Expect in Shinobi no Ittoki
