The movie is based on Soubee Amako’s Nintama Rantaro manga series and is a sequel to Takashi Miike’s 2011 hit Ninja Kids!!!
This time around, Rantaro (Seishiro Kato) and his friends at the Ninja Academy are tasked with retrieving the stolen “Heaven’s Sword”, which is said to give its wielder the power to conquer the world. They’re told that if they’re able to somehow retrieve the sword and finish their homework, they’ll get the entire winter holiday off with no school work. Soon, the boys embark on their first official ninja mission. Unfortunately, as revealed by the final scene of the teaser, Rantaro forgets to bring along their homework.
“Ninja Kids!!! Summer Mission Impossible” will be released by Toei in Japan on June 1, 2013.
