News Madhouse Reveals Ninja Ten Battles Web Anime with Kawajiri (Updated)
posted on 2010-07-30 13:16 EDT
Masao Maruyama, the founder and producer of the Madhouse anime studio, revealed at his Otakon panel on Friday that his studio is developing a Ninja Ten Battles "webisode." According to Maruyama, the story is about "a guy in drag with a sword who fights ninjas." The web anime is being developed as a teaser trailer for a possible movie.
Maruyama's slide presentation for the panel had this new anime listed, but it was covered up by a "Censored" label. Maruyama later explained in the panel that the anime's slide was "censored" because of what happened in the past. At a previous Otakon panel, he mentioned that he wanted to do a Trigun movie — but because he mentioned the possibility, he ended up having to make it.
Update: Maruyama later revealed at the ongoing panel that Ninja Scroll creator Yoshiaki Kawajiri is working on the Ninja Ten Battles anime.
