Japan 2017 95 mins. In Japanese

From the director of Neko Samurai and its sequel Neko Samurai: A Tropical Adventure, a ninja with the stolen ability to shape-shift disappears in front of his young son, saying he will return once the boy has mastered the ninja arts. Immediately, a cat appears where the father once stood, inspiring the son to believe his father has assumed a feline form. Grown into the skilled ninja he was destined to become, he battles rival warriors with the cat by his side. Hilarious and engaging, Neko Ninja reaches new heights for the cat-friendly warrior theme that Watanabe has been perfecting over the past several years.
