Kitan Club has recently been making figures featuring cats in various poses and unexpected costumes. For example, their Kyonshi (Jiangshi) Cat previously caused a stir in Japan and abroad.

But now, the Kyonshi Cat has a new rival, and this time giving a nod to a clichéd "Cool Japan" icon...

Introducing "Ninja Cats"!

The world's coolest feline ninjas, all five of them, are here!

The Ninja Cats are all posed in the iconic "doron!" pose which a ninja makes just before he appears or disappears in a cloud of smoke...

Of course, you can line up several of them side-by-side for an even more impressive effect.

The included fox mask is removable, so you can put it on for a cool look, or take it off for a charming face you're sure to fall in love with!

Five color variations

The Ninja Cats come in green, pink, blue, red and purple.

Priced at 300 yen each, they'll be available in capsule toy dispensers all over Japan from Tuesday, May 25th.
