Original air date : February 18, 2024 [Adult Swim (Toonami)]

After receiving medical assistance from an old colleague named Kagari, Joe tortures the boss ninja at an abandoned factory before killing him by fire after he fails to get any useful information. Joe travels by motorcycle across the southwestern U.S. states in an attempt to find the clan’s American hideout but to no avail. Back at headquarters, the FBI has seemingly covered up the ninja incident. Mike and Emma lay low to continue their investigation into the Logans. Joe contacts Mike and agrees to a meeting the following night at a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. After getting Joe to confess that the Logan identity was a cover up, Mike holds him at gunpoint in an attempt to bring him in for questioning before they are attacked by two ninjas disguised as a single food delivery man. Joe kills the attackers before the restaurant is barraged by bullets and a rocket launcher from disguised men traveling via van. Joe escapes and Mike is left to wonder who created the attacker’s blades that were able to pierce his body armor during the assault. In an undisclosed location, ninja clan master Yamaji receives word from Zai that Joe is still alive.

The secrets of our arts must never leave this clan.

Under no circumstances shall they be shared with outsiders.

Bear in mind your mission is your life.

We dedicate everything we do to maintain peace in the land of the rising sun.

A terrorist attack on this scale is unprecedented.

It has rocked the entire world to its very core.

Due to recent events, our organization shall leave the jurisdiction of Japan and fall under a new authority of a greater power.

Therefore, the secrets of our arts may now be shared with foreigners.

Make no mistake… we do this for the future of Japan.

Any of those who disobey this decision or defect because of it shall be branded exiles and exterminated.

[ Breathing heavily ]



Ah, geez, this is quite a mess you’ve gotten yourself into, Higan.

[ Weakly ] What are you doing here?

These guys just can’t keep it down in here.

Didn’t think I’d ever see you again.

I thought we would meet in the afterlife.

It’s a shame about Mari.

Why don’t you have your disguise on?

The organization somehow found a way to see through the masking system we’ve been using.


Please remove it. It’s useless now.

I swear, why are you always beat to hell whenever I see you?

You’re a doctor, aren’t you?

Isn’t it obvious?

You used the secret art of stark awareness, eh?

Never do it again. It will kill you next time.

Wait, this doesn’t make any sense.

Forget about the next time.

You should have been dead from this wound already.

Yeah, I know.

I don’t understand why I was the one who lived.

It could just have been dumb luck.

Or perhaps someone out there is keeping you alive.

[ Sighs ] Let’s get started.

Even with your strength, it will take five or six days before you can make a full recovery.

I just need to be able to move.

Then I get answers from our guest out there.

What comes after that?

I’m going to hunt them all down.

By yourself?

Are you volunteering to help?

This shouldn’t hurt.

[ Grunts ]

After it goes in, of course.

[ Grunts ]



[ Grunting ]


You bastard! Go ahead and do your worst.

Is this all you got? Remember, a ninja never cracks.

Yes, I know.


[ Grunting ]

[ Blade landing ]

Aah! Ah! [ Inhales sharply ]

What are you trying to prove here?

Just go ahead and kill me already!

[ Grunting ]


Aah! Aah!

[ Blade landing ]

[ Gurgles ]

[ Laughs, gasps ]

Oh, yeah. I just remembered your woman.

You should have seen the look on her face.

It was the best!

The kid’s reaction was just typical fear.

But your woman, her eyes glared with anger and hatred until the end.

And, you know, the more I stabbed her, the more she cried.

[ Laughs ]

Listen here.


I’m going to burn their eyes into your memory forever.

You are about to be dropped into the pits of hell, where you’ll hear the sound of skin being peeled off, bones being shattered, and spines ripped out whole in spite of your heart stopping.

There will be no sweet release of death.

Even in oblivion, you’ll tremble in fear of the oni that lie beyond.


[ Screaming ]



[ Siren wailing ]

Oh, come on.

Why the hell are you taking me off this investigation?

You know we can’t just pretend that nothing happened.


We’ve been over this already.

Look, there’s nothing we can do since we don’t know who the blood belongs to, nor do we have any surveillance footage of what went on up there.

That’s just the reality of it.

Regardless, it’s a direct order from the top.

Don’t get involved in this investigation any further.

I don’t remember you being such a Goddamn coward.

Damn it, Mike.

I’d hate to see you get terminated right before you’re about to retire.

Just sit tight and pick up another case.

What about Emma?

She saw everything.

She saw Logan get attacked by a group of assassins.

Are you sure?

I suggest that you try asking her again.


[ Indistinct conversations ]


[ Footsteps approaching ]

[ Sighs ]

Seriously? What the hell?

Don’t just roll over like a dog.

Oh, please. There’s no point in throwing a tantrum.

The smarter play is just to appear obedient on the surface.

What does that mean?

I almost laughed at how blatantly they’re trying to cover this up.

Definitely something shady going on with this case.

We just need to play it cool.


So about the man who disappeared from the hospital… Joe Logan…

I did some digging into him like you asked me to.

This goes a lot deeper than just him.

His wife, Sarah Logan, and their son, Kyle Logan, the ones that were brutally murdered, their names are all aliases.

None of them actually exist.


Turns out they’re the same as all the previous victims.

So your intuition was right on the money.

Ah, shit. What the hell is going on here?


It’s finally ready.

This will help protect everyone

including you.

[ Engine starts ]

[ Tires screech ]



[ Footsteps ]



[ Grunts ]


[ Vehicle approaches ]

[ Bells ding ]


[ Chuckles ]

Nice ass there, sexy.


Get your hands off me, you creep!


This ain’t near enough, buddy.

That’s all I can afford.

[ Grunts ]

Sorry, what did you say?

[ Laughs ]

Hmm. Does that bike out front belong to you?

You see, there’s been a rash of motorcycle thefts around these parts lately.

That ain’t one of them, is it?

Hey, boy, show me your license.

Don’t try and play dumb with me.


[ Grunts ]

You son of a bitch!

[ Grunting ]

Aah! [ Glass shatters ]

[ Clattering ]

[ Groans ]

So I see.

Looks like you’re hard at work having fun.

Criminals are doing deals in VR these days, you know?

You read the report, didn’t you?

We need to get this investigation out of the way first.

Otherwise, we won’t have time to go after Logan.

I don’t get the big deal about virtual space or whatever.

It’s not like aliens gifted us with the technology.

Advancements in VR have exploded like crazy.

And it’s all thanks to AUZA.

AUZA? That’s great.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Mike Moriss here.

This is Joe Logan.


I’ve been looking for you, but Joe Logan doesn’t exist.

So who are you, really?

I have some questions for you, so let’s talk.

What the hell do you mean?

We’re talking right now, aren’t we?

Damn it! Lost him.

Huh? That you, Logan?

[ cellphone rings ]

Stop messing around.

This is your last chance.

Looks like somebody can’t take a joke.

I’m done with this.

Whoa! Hey, wait!

Stay on the line. I’m sorry.

Don’t hang up on me again. [ Keyboard clacking ]

So, what do you want from me?

Give me a location.

You’re gonna let me decide?

All right, then, let’s meet up at this Chinese restaurant in St. Mark’s called Long Hao Bao.

I’ll be there tomorrow night.

[ Computer beeps ]

[ Groans ]

[ Tires screech ]


“From the cradle to the grave”…

Those words were once used to describe the social-security system of a certain country.

However, there is something more deserving of that phrase now.

And that is us here at AUZA.

From the cradle to the grave, AUZA technology works to support you, your entire family, all of your friends and loved ones in every aspect of your life.



What do you mean?

Your place is perfect.

There’s never any customers here.

Shut the hell up, jackass.

I need you to take a long walk.

Hey, this is my place.

Who do you think you are?

You don’t get to order me around.

Okay, relax, old man.

I keep telling you, no more get-togethers during my dinner rush.

This is what dinner rush looks like?

If one of the delivery guy shows up, just tell him to check that table and make sure they get the right order.

Hold up. You’re not using drones yet?

[ Scoffs ]

Does this look like AUZA City to you?

[ Door opens, bells ding ] Huh?

Remember, this is my shop. You’re going to have to pay for anything you break.

I’ll be back in 30 minutes.

Pain in the ass.

[ Door opens, bells ding ]

I was starting to think that maybe you fell over and died somewhere.

Let me see your face.

I want to make sure you’re the real deal.

That’s not going to cut it, man.

Hold on a sec.

I’m surprised you’re here. I didn’t think you’d show up.

You’re taking a big risk of getting caught out here.

I didn’t come here for small talk.

So what do you want to know?

Who’s responsible for the serial murders.

You got any leads?


Any small detail is fine.

Are you going to return the favor by answering my questions?


Let me ask you this…

Do I look like the type to cut a deal with a suspect, or do you think I’d let them go free?

Well, that’s too bad. Get down on your knees.

Put your hands behind your head.

Start talking. Tell me about the hospital.

AUZA Eats. Gyoza, chili-fried shrimp, mapo tofu.

Yep. Looks like it’s all here. Later.

[ Door closes, bells ding ]

Why didn’t you make a break for it?

Because we’re not done talking.


Trust me, we’re going to have a nice, long talk.

[ Door opens, bells ding ]

AUZA Eats here.

Fried rice, egg roll, twice-cooked pork.

Got it. Thanks.

[ Door closes, bells ding ]

Don’t try anything funny.

Get up. I’m arresting you here now.

[ Bells ding ]

Order’s on the table. Just find it and go.



Who is that?


Freeze! Don’t move! You too!

Come on, man, I gotta know.

Who the hell are you?

Peking duck.

[ Grunts ]

Where’s the guy from the hospital? Answer me!

I am a ninja. [ Electricity crackling ]

What the hell?

Same with these guys and the ones who attacked me at the hospital.

Ninjas? I’ve heard talk on the street, but no way.

So that means all of the serial murders are actually…

[ Vehicle approaches, tires screech ]

[ Vehicle doors open ] Huh?

[ Machine-gun fire ]

[ Glass shatters ]


[ Machine-gun fire stops ]




[ Explosion ]

Let’s go!


[ Coughs ]

Hey, where are you?



This thing slashed right through my body armor.

There’s not a scratch on any of this.

What kind of alien crap is this? Who on Earth made these blades?


Here at AUZA, from the cradle to the grave, AUZA technology works to support you, your entire family, all of your friends and loved ones in every aspect of your life.


[ Slurps ]

Yes, Zai?

I’m afraid he’s still alive, Master.
