posted on by Jennifer Sherman
This year's fifth issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine is announcing on Thursday that the Nobunaga no Shinobi (Ninja Girl & Samurai Master) television anime based on Naoki Shigeno's four-panel manga will get a second season. The new season is slated to premiere in April.
The manga's eleventh compiled book volume will ship with a DVD of the television anime's first 14 episodes on February 28. The anime's first season premiered in October on Tokyo MX, and later on TV Aichi. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
Akitarō Daichi (Nurse Angel Ririka SOS, Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san, Kamisama Kiss) is directing the anime at TMS Entertainment, and Junko Yamanaka (Detective Conan, Kamisama Kiss, ReLIFE) is designing the characters for animation.
The gag manga centers on a young female ninja named Chidori, whose dream is to help the Warring States-era warlord Oda Nobunaga to achieve his goals. Shigeno launched the manga in Young Animal in 2008, and Hakusensha published the manga's tenth compiled volume in September. Hakusensha published the second volume of Shigeno's Nobunaga no Shinobi - Owari no Tōitsu-ki (Nobunaga's Shinobi - Chronicle of Owari's Unification) manga in February 2016.
