TV Asahi updated its website with new information about Toei's upcoming Shuriken Sentai Nin'ninger Super Sentai special-effects series. The site updated with the show's cast, staff, premiere date, and a promotional video.

The series will star:

Shōjirō Nakazawa (Gokaiger vs. Gavan: The Movie, Kamen Rider Wizard) will direct the series and Kento Shimoyama (Good Luck Girl!, Servant × Service, Naruto Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals) will write the scripts. Kousuke Yamashita (Chihayafuru 2, Digimon Xros Wars: Toki o Kakeru Shōnen Hunter-tachi) will compose the music and Hirofumi Fukuzawa (Goseiger, Gokaiger) is in charge of action direction. Hiroshi Butsuda (Kamen Rider × Kamen Raider Gaim and Wizard Tenkawakeme no Sengoku Movie Daigassen) is in charge of special effects.

Yohei Onishi (Ressha Sentai ToQger) will perform the series' theme song "Saa Ike! Nin'ninger!" (Now, Go! Nin'ninger!) with lyrics by Neon Genesis Evangelion's Neko Oikawa and composition by guitarist Akira Sato (Victory Gundam). Daiki Ise will perform the ending theme "Nan ja Mon ja! Ninja Matsuri!"

Shuriken Sentai Nin'ninger will mark the 40th anniversary of Toei's Super Sentai franchise. The story takes place after The Last Ninja sealed away all the yokai in the world. This lasted until The Last Ninja's death, when the yokai returned. His descendants, five cousins, battle the yokai as the Nin'ninger.

The television series will premiere on TV Asahi on February 15 at 7:30 a.m.
