VINTAGE NINJA.net is a stream-of-consciousness look at shinobi-inspired media and pop-culture from decades (and in a few cases centuries) past. Fans of old ninja movies, pre-Naruto ninja manga, ninja action figures and sexy kunoichi are going to find a lot of great imagery here.
Beside the black-clad commandos we know and love as ‘ninja’ you’ll also find extended family like masked vigilantes and hooded detectives, trouble-making wizards and mischievous magicians, short-skirted shadow-skilled sword girls, and more.
While the contributors to this site were major ninja nerds in the 80′s, Vintage Ninja is actually born in the frustration of realizing how much more was out there that never made it to U.S. shores. After years of discovery, we now showcase an ever-growing collection of film images from the original 60′s cinema craze in Japan, manga art and printed collectibles going back to the turn of the century, and all sorts of antique shinobi heritage we hardly had a chance to see during the glory days of Sho Kosugi and Stephen K. Hayes.
