"The Slicing Gale! AkaNinger! (旋風つみじ!アカニンジャー! Kirisaku tsumuji! Aka Ninjā!)"
―AkaNinger's roll call.[src]

Tsumuji Igasaki (伊賀崎 旋風 Igasaki Tsumuji) is Takaharu and Fuuka's father, as well as Yakumo, Nagi, and Kasumi's uncle. He is the son of Yoshitaka Igasaki, the Last Ninja. He eventually gains access to his own AkaNinger (アカニンジャー Aka Ninjā, Red Ninja) powers. Much later on he also dubs himself NinninRed (ニンニンレッド Ninnin Reddo), as the sole male member of the Ninnin Girls.

History

Early Life

Tsumuji as a teenager.

In his younger life, Tsumuji was known for being a ninja prodigy, being called Super Ninja (スーパー忍者 Sūpā Ninja) having looked up to his father, the Last Ninja and dreamt of following his path. But once he entered his teenage years, his Nintality was stolen by Kyuemon Izayoi and his training was erased from his memories.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 16: The Father Tsumuji Is a Super Ninja!?

Getting Started

Tsumuji had called all five candidates of Ninningers to their clan's dojo, which was in ruins after several Hitokarages decimated it. Takaharu proudly accepted the mantle of Ninninger but the others refused. While on their way to Gengetsu Kibaoni's resting place, Tsumuji sensed "something off" until Gengetsu was released from his seal. The Ninningers took care of a Youkai and defeated it with their Shurikenjin. Afterwards, he met his father, Yoshitaka Igasaki whom was thought to be dead. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 1: We're Ninja!

When the dojo is brought to the worldIcon-crosswiki.png of the Kamen Riders due to ShockerIcon-crosswiki.png altering reality with the History Modifying MachineIcon-crosswiki.png, Tsumuji is nearly erased from existence along with his father. He is saved when the Ninningers team up with Kamen Riders DriveIcon-crosswiki.png and MachIcon-crosswiki.png to destroy "Doctor D"Icon-crosswiki.png who orchestrated the plot, returning them to their own world.

Job as a Ninja Trainer

While not a ninja himself, he runs the Igasaki Ninjutsu Dojo, where the Ninningers train their ninja skills. Aside from teaching them the basic of Ninja, he also wished to follow his father's path but unable to do so, due to lack of potential as a Ninja. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 6: Tengu's Spirit Away

NinjaRed/HurricaneRed

Seeing the Ninningers needed more advanced training, Tsumuji called the previous red ninjas Sasuke/NinjaRed and Yousuke Shiina/HurricaneRed to teach them how to be true ninja. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 7: Spring Ninja Festival!

Temporary Nintality

During Father's Day, Tsumuji revealed to his children about his past life as a ninja, and in fact, he was involved in their plan to take out Youkai Kasabake. After his part of the plan was done, Tsumuji was advised to take shelter but witnessing the Ninningers being badly beaten, his love and concern for his family temporarily spiked his Nintality, allowing him to reuse his Shuriken Ninpo: Tornado Technique and save them from Kasabake. However, his Nintality reverted back to its weakened state after the fight, leading the Ninningers to suspect it was a temporary power boost that was "a fluke". Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 16: The Father Tsumuji Is a Super Ninja!?

Revealing His Past

After the Ninningers defeated the first of Kyuemon's Izayoi ninjas, Yoshitaka confided in Takaharu and Fuuka that the source of their power lay within the Igasaki's Nintality, revealing that the cause of the disappearance of Tsumuji's Nintality was infact due to it being stolen by Kyuemon.

One of the New AkaNingers

Yoshitaka gives Tsumuji a Ninja Ichibantou.

Takaharu gives Tsumuji a Tsumuji Nin Shuriken.

After reclaiming his lost powers thanks to the other Ninningers, Tsumuji joins forces with them in the final battle against the Kibaoni forces by transforming himself into his own version of AkaNinger. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 45: Three Generations of Fathers and Sons! All Ninjas Gathered

Message from his Father

Fighting alongside the Ninningers against Gengetsu Kibaoni, Tsumuji sees his father die at the hands of Kyuemon who uses his Nintality to blast back the Ninningers. As the Ninningers lament on their defeat back home, Tsumuji reveals to them the box he found in the tanuki statue which turns out to be a message that Yoshitaka had left behind for them, inspiring the six Ninningers to stand firm together and use what they have accomplished to overcome their doubts. After the Ninningers leave to face the Kibaonis, the message makes a reprisal in which Tsumuji is addressed by Yoshitaka, who apologizes for not being much of a father, admitting that the kindness he criticized Tsumuji for had saved the Ninningers before leaving them to him. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 46: The Last Shuriken Appears!

After the six Ninningers finally defeat Gengetsu Kibaoni and use the End Shuriken to save the world, each inheriting the title of Last Ninja from Yoshitaka, Tsumuji has them all agree to meet up in two years' time to recollect on what they have each achieved before they go their seperate ways.

Personality

Tsumuji is a happy-go-lucky man who shares similar traits with his son, though it is not very amusing to his daughter. He is also shown to be a little wise, having Takaharu take a rest while his teammates tried to get on his level.

While training his students to become ninjas, he tries his best to support them. When Fuuka was kidnapped by Youkai Tengu, he wanted to help badly despite not knowing Ninjutsu. He even expressed his disappointment to Yoshitaka Igasaki for not teaching him the basics of Ninjutsu despite placing his students in that path. In reality, he was a great ninja back on his younger days but his Nintality diminished after it was stolen by Kyuemon.

Powers and Abilities

Danger Intuition
While not a ninja, Tsumuji can somehow sense the oncoming revival of Gengetsu Kibaoni from his seal.
Ninjutsu Knowledge
Despite lacking the potential of a Ninja, Tsumuji has a vast knowledge of Ninjutsu skills.
Shuriken Ninja Art (シュリケン忍法 Shuriken Ninpō)
Right before his Nintality diminished, the young Tsumuji was capable of demonstrating the Shuriken Ninja Art ability.
Tornado Technique (竜巻の術 Tatsumaki no Jutsu)
By summoning a gust of air, he can release it as a strong tornado that enables him to push his opponent. When his Nintality diminished, he can only produce a short breeze of wind that his daughter Fuuka describes as "weaker than an electric fan". Upon regaining his Nintality, the Tornado technique and other wind-based attacks were his usual Ninpou of choice.

Yokai Meganekomata

Yokai Meganekomata.png

Yokai Meganekomata (妖怪メガネコマタ Yōkai Meganekomata) is Tsumuji's Yokai disguise which was granted to him by Yakumo Katou's magic in order to infiltrate the Kibaoni Army Corps, to whom he introduced himself as Yokai Nekomata's cousin's underclassman's second cousin. Although it lacks any powers from the genuine article,the watches on it's body can be used as timers.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 42: OtomoNin Wars! Nekomata Strikes Back
