Ninja Kamui - Episode 6

Original air date : March 17, 2024 [Adult Swim (Toonami)]

The organization begins searching the city for the lieutenant and Higan. After retreating to heal Higan, the lieutenant reveals herself to be Emma, otherwise known as Aska. She explains to Higan that she was sent by the clan in order to spy on him under the guise of a rookie FBI agent. Aska informs Higan that it will be virtually impossible to defeat the organization without using an armored suit and informs him that she has taken one of the most advanced models during their escape, the Kamui. To use it, Higan must be directly synched to the suit via neural pathways for it to function. Before putting him into deep sleep for the procedure, Aska confirms she was the one who saved him back during the ambush and helped him infiltrate the city. Lil manages to locate their hideout and Aska engages him in battle before ultimately being defeated. During the synching, Aska subconsciously relays to Higan that she was only able to save him because she didn’t arrive in time. She explains that Mari saved her life long ago and that the two of them stayed in touch since. Higan finishes the synching and confronts Lil in the Kamui.

Why did she help him?

Who cares about that?

So now the hunt begins.

We now have an update on the explosion that occurred last night.

Officials have determined it was caused by a…

[ Yawns ]


Heed me, brave falcons.

The traitorous crow has just flown from the fatherly nest.

The crow deceived all those in the nest and now shelters the tiger, our greatest enemy.

Do not let either of them leave this place.

Find them at all costs and tear their hearts out.



You should stay still.

It will take time for you to fully heal, even with these cutting edge nanomachines.

Wondering why I saved you?

Well, hello there, Mr. Ducky.

Sorry for pulling the wool over your eyes.

This is just one of my personas, and it isn’t even my real face.

You did that to get close to me?

Yes, exactly.

The chieftain of the organization

dispatched me on a mission.

You died and were revived by a secret art

that we knew nothing about.

I was sent to uncover the truth behind your resurrection.

We operated on the assumption

that you were capable of reviving over and over.

We wanted to understand your technique.

Secret arts are only used in the heat of battle.

That’s why I was tasked with observing you from up close

and unraveling the workings of your technique.

And so I approached you as the FBI agent, Emma.

Does Mike know about this?

He doesn’t. He’s just a civilian.

And that explains the meaning of my life

as a ninja of the organization.

But there is another side to me.

[ Voice distorting ] Now we can finally talk, Higan.

That’s right,

I was the mysterious benefactor who helped you.

I did it so you could have you revenge.

You observed me under orders of the organization

while betraying them to help me.


I have my own personal goal that I want to achieve,

and there is no way I can fulfill it

if you happen to die, so I need you to live.

If you fight those lieutenants again,

you will surely be killed.

The suits that they’re equipped with are simply too powerful.

Your secret art won’t help you.

I’m certain there is no technique in your repertoire

that could save you from that fate.

However, there’s still hope.

The power to kill them

is right here.

A suit? Interesting.

Yes, it was one still in development

that was brought here to go through endurance testing.

I believe she prepared to take it in advance,

knowing she would betray us.

This changes nothing.

West D block, clear. South C block, clear.

Nothing at all.

[ Rain patters ]

[ Thunder rumbling ]


The Gusoku gear, an ultra high-grade combat suit designed to work in harmony with all sorts of ninja techniques.

It was created by taking the ninja’s 600-year history and combining it with our cutting edge technology.

Truly the devil’s work.


I was also a part of the development team.

This one here is the most advanced suit there is.

I just need to finish it,

and it will become like a new body for you.

What happens if the organization finds us first?

[ Typing continues ]

[ Chuckles ]



North A block, clear.


[ Keys clicking ]



[ Groans ]


Damn it, Mike!

Come on, dude, you were supposed to be protecting me.

You’re a liar, just like the rest of those bastards.

[ Groans ]

Worst wake-up call ever.

You’ve been asleep for 10 whole days, man.

10 days?

And all that time, I’ve been waiting here all by myself.

Did you patch me up?

Well, a doctor friend of mine did.

He doesn’t ask any questions, and I made sure that we paid him handsomely.

What do you mean by we?

Pretty swanky, huh?

This fella here belongs to some rich shitheads.

They never use it this time of year, so don’t worry, we’re safe.

That’s pretty crafty of me, don’t you think?


Anyway, don’t try and give me the FBI act now.

I mean, they’re after you too, right?

I’m pretty sure they were tailing me way before I even left town.

I was careful about things.

I didn’t think they’d find me when they did.

The good news is, we must be getting real close to finding their dirty little secrets.

This proves it.


[ Whirring ]

[ Whirring dies ]

Still doesn’t have enough output.

We need the power reactor that serves

at the heart of this suit.

Parts like that are only available at headquarters.

Forget it. It would be like walking into our own graves.

Which means we only have one option.

[ Groans ]


[ Groans ]

[ Water bubbling ]

[ Insects chirping ]


As cold as fire. Isn’t that backwards?

People lose their composure when they get angry.

On the other hand, people lose their intensity by being too cautious.

At the end of the day, feelings aren’t something we can control.

But just imagine if your willpower could counter that problem by being both fire and ice at the same time.

If you could do that, it would make you invincible.

And that’s my own ninja philosophy be as cold as fire and as hot as ice, all by forging your mind.

[ Laughs ]


This is the only area remaining.

It has come to our attention that this water disposal plant has seen a huge increase in power consumption over the last two weeks.

Based on that, we suspect that they are operating some sort of large equipment inside.

I’ll go check it out.

I’ve got a good feeling.

My fate is looking extra fly today.


Now that takes care of the reactor in the armor plating.

Just a little more…

The name of this updated Gusoku gear is Kamui.

It’s a prototype model built from scratch, an entirely new design meant to achieve the highest level of combat potential.

Thus, it works differently from the other suits.

Simply wearing it won’t be enough to tap into its power.

This suit has to be linked to the user’s brain first.

It then operates according to the mental image

they see in their mind at the same instant they think of it.

That gives it a reaction time leagues above the other suits.

The more intensely that you visualize your own actions, the faster and stronger the suit will execute them.

In other words, this suit responds directly to the will and actions of its user.

That about sums it up.

However, for this to work, it requires you to go through a process to sync it with your brain.

You will be put into a deep sleep, and you’ll be unable to wake up, no matter what even if you got stabbed in the heart.

Let me make one thing perfectly clear.

The next time you die, it will be your last.

I should know, since the one who saved you last time was me.

That night, I used my own secret art.

I completely froze all your cells by piercing a special pathway, putting your body into suspended animation.

After it’s been used on someone once, those pathways close, and it can never be used again.

It was you. But why?

Why did you save me?

Why didn’t you save my wife and son instead?

I wouldn’t have cared about dying

if only you would have let them live.

[ Electricity crackles ]


[ Weakly ] Damn you…


[ Alarm blares ]






[ Door clangs ]


[ Beeping ]

Clever girl.

[ Beeping speeds up ]

Looks like they fell for the dummy.

Now’s my chance.

[ Loud clang ]

Hey there, my dear.

The big, bad wolf is here to eat you.

How’d you find us? – Wasn’t easy.

Did you think I just pulled the answer out of a fortune cookie?

I sniffed my way all over town looking for you with no luck,

and I knew there was no way you died,

which can only mean you were constantly on the move.

Whether it’s a limo dropping off a hooker

or some hot DILF pushing a stroller,

every movement in this city

is tracked on the main traffic control server.

Ever since the two of you went missing,

there’s been only one vehicle

that’s been moving the entire time,

and it was none other than

this truck!

My God, that was a really smart move.

Nobody would ever question an advertising truck

roaming around town like some lost dog.

Synchro rate is only at 10%.

And that ninja boy doesn’t belong to you.

He’s my piece of ass.

And this time, I’m going to climax, baby.


[ Tires squeal ]



[ Air hisses ]

[ Wolf whistle ]

I’ve dreamed about this

engaging in a fight with one of the other suits,

just to see what it was like.

[ Laughs ] I’m gonna split you in two!

[ Phone rings ]

Our next move is to find all the people on that list.

How do you expect me to track them down?

I can’t go home anymore because of you,

which means there’s no way for me to hack into their database.

Need a computer.

Damn it. That’s not my area of expertise.

She would know better about that than I would.

Hmm. Wait a minute.

I know where there’s one.


[ Loud thud ]



You better not start screaming too soon.

I prefer more foreplay than this.


Trash like you can never be a ninja.

You’re just a pathetic, dirty, little man

looking for some cheap thrills.



[ Laughs ]

And to prove my point, you came here

without telling any of the others, didn’t you?

Yeah, that’s right, baby.

I don’t give a rat’s ass about what the organization thinks.


[ Growls ]

Listen up, lady. I just want to fight.

None of those other little pricks can get me off,

so it’s got to be a battle to the death

where we use every one of our muscles.

That’s why I became a ninja!


You don’t even come close to what a true ninja is capable of,

you tiny freak!

Oh, yeah. I’m really starting to feel it in my pants now.

You’re pretty good for a stupid bitch!



So you took control of my optics?





[ Sensor beeps ]

[ Laughing ]





[ Clinking ]

[ Electricity crackles ]

[ Breathing shakily ]


Come on, you can’t seriously think

that you had what it takes to get the better of me!

[ Maniacal laughter ]

[ Groans ]

Not yet. Just a little more.


Can you hear my voice?

I’m playing a recording I made

directly into your subconscious.

If you’re listening to this, then it’s possible

that I’m already dead.

You asked me why I saved you.

The truth is that long ago, your wife, Mari,

once saved my life.

And ever since then,

Mari and I have secretly stayed in touch.

Even on the night of her death,

when I heard about the attack,

I rushed to your house to try to save you all.

But by the time I arrived,

it was too late to save Mari or Ren.

The only one I had the chance to save

was you.

I’m sorry that I couldn’t save your wife,

and I’m sorry that I couldn’t save your son.

It’s all the more reason I want to make her wish

for you to come true.

Mari used to tell me her dream for you

was to live on.

I’ve done everything I can now.

[ Groans ]

[ Beeps ]

[ Straining ]




[ Beeps loudly ]


[ Rock music playing ]


That’s my own ninja philosophy

be as cold as fire and as hot as ice,

by forging your mind.
