Friday marked the premiere of the 30th feature film in the Crayon Shin-chan anime series, which is based on the manga of the same name by Yoshito Usui. If you ever wanted to witness the moment the cheeky star of the series, Shinnosuke Nohara, came into this world, you can see that and more in TOHO’s new preview of Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Mononoke Ninja Chinpuden‘s opening minutes.

Watch Shinnosuke’s birth, Hiroshi and Misae coming up with his name and more in the video below, which will be available on YouTube until May 31.




The film is directed by Masakazu Hashimoto (TARI TARISoul Eater Not!), who previously worked on the 21st, 23rd, and 27th films, based on a screenplay co-written by himself and Kimiko Ueno (The Royal Tutor).


Its story begins when Hesogakure Chiyome appears in front of the Nohara family and introduces Chinzo, the child she brought with her, saying, “He is your real child.” Meanwhile, Shinnosuke is taken away to the “Ninja Village” where only ninjas live. The Hesogakure clan is a ninja family that has been protecting the “Earth’s Navel” as a user of the “Mononoke no Jutsu” for generations, and Shinnosuke is their heir. When the plug of the “Earth’s Navel” is pulled out, the Earth will wither and tomorrow will never come… Shinnosuke is not a child of the Nohara family, but a child of the ninja who protects the earth!
