Kamui is a new initiate into the world of the ninja, a young boy who wants a normal life, thrown into a society of assassins. He learns the secret tricks of the trade and tries to fight for what he believes in, but the beliefs of his fellow ninja are more mercenary, and liable to cause fatal friction.

Hot on the heels of Manual of Ninja Martial Arts, a 1964 manga by Sanpei Shirato was also adapted, this time for the small screen. Shirato's original ran out with two episodes to go, so the author wrote two further chapters in order to round off the series. The same creator also wrote Sasuke. Several TV episodes were also recut into the anime film of the same name, released in 1971. Not to be confused with the unrelated Dagger of Kamui.
