About SUSHI NINJA:
Elite Sushi Ninja fights with evil Monsters for justice every day! They, however, are on the popular superhero TV show…. In the real world, three lazy kids named “IKURA”, “MAGURO”, and “TAMAGO” watch with that TV show. They wish to be Heroes like the Sushi Ninja on the TV show some day, but they always fall out over something stupid. One day, they unexpectedly meet up with a beautiful Princess being chasing by Nachos King Gang. She deems the three guys to be the Heroic Sushi Ninja on TV show and asks them for help. They are so excited and act like the heroes on TV show. Then they decide to face with the enemies to protect the Princess…. Can they be the real Heroes and protect the Princess from the evil?
Being directed by Moto Sakakibara (director of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures and movie director of Final Fantasy VII), SUSHI NINJA can also show off its list of voice actors: IKURA, the salmon roe, is voiced by Yuki Kaji (known as Eren Jaeger from Attack on Titan, Finny from Black Butler etc.), MAGURO, the tuna sushi, by Romi Park (Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist; Toshiro Hitsugaya from BLEACH), TAMAGO, the egg, by Mamoru Miyano (Light Yagami from Death Note; Rintarō Okabe from Steins;Gate) and the Princess by Nana Mizuki (singer and seiyuu, Hinata Hyuga from NARUTO).
The theme song of the show will be sung by the three anime singers Hironobu Kageyama, Masaaki Endoh and Hiroshi Kitadani who are also members of the group JAM Project.
Attendees of the SUSHI NINJA world premiere screening at DAISUKI panel will get a free t-shirt (limited in numbers, first-come first-serve). At the screening, there will be also special video messages by the voice actors and the theme song artists, which will be screened only at the premiere screening. Besides the screening, fans have the opportunity to create their “own Sushi Ninja” at DAISUKI booth (booth no. 201a) and get a little gift for their creativity.
