Anime Under the Ninja is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Kengo Hanazawa. It has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Young Magazine since July 2018. Denpa has licensed the manga in English, describing the first volume as:
After World War II, Allied Command in Japan developed a new agency to help manage terrorism and violence within the Pacific region. The agency is staffed by ninja and they were initially tasked with dealing with domestic affairs. Eventually, that program evolved into its current form, managing 20,000 ninjas in a wide range of domestic and international affairs. One of those ninjas is Kudo. The losing seventeen-year-old high school student is now poised to become the next line of defense against a potential wave of foreign assassins invading Tokyo.
