The show will be available for streaming on Max (formerly HBO Max) the following day.

Previously at San Diego Comic-Con 2023, Adult Swim revealed a new trailer alongside a message from Park to the fans. According to Toonami producer Jason DeMarco, there will be a new trailer to be released in the runup to Ninja Kamui’s premiere.

The show’s synopsis is as follows (via Anime News Network):

Ninja Kamui follows Joe Higan who is a Nukenin – a former ninja who escaped his clan and is hiding from his violent past in rural America with his family. One night, he is ambushed by a team of assassins from his former organization who exact a bloody retribution on Joe and his family for betraying their ancient code. Rising from his seeming “death,” Joe will re-emerge as his former self – Ninja Kamui – to avenge his family and friends. Kamui is a 21st century ninja, a shadowy anachronism who pits his ancient skills against high-tech weaponry with brutal finesse. He must face off against trained assassins, combat cyborgs, and rival ninjas to bring down the very clan that made him.

Additional details, including the show’s cast and episode count, are still to be revealed.

Prior to this reveal on New Years’ Day 2024, TVLaint reported that Ninja Kamui will be premiering simultaneously on Adult Swim Latin America on Sunday, February 11th.

According to TVLaint, Ninja Kamui will be simultaneously premiering on Adult Swim Latin America on Sunday, February 11th!This means that the series will likely replace Dr. Stone: New World on #Toonami on Saturday, February 10th.

It should be noted that the season finale of Dr. Stone: New World will air the week before on February 3rd, so barring a block expansion or other change, Ninja Kamui will likely serve as the show’s replacement on the lineup. A fourth season of Dr. Stone, titled Science Future is already in production.
