TOHO began streaming the first five minutes on Monday for Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Mononoke Ninja Chinpūden, the Crayon Shin-chan series’ 30th film. The video features a story about Shinnosuke’s birth, and will be available until May 31.
The birth scene in the film is based on a chapter from the 16th volume of Yoshito Usui‘s Crayon Shin-chan manga. The June issue of Futabasha‘s Monthly Manga Town magazine will republish this chapter on May 2.
The film opened in Japan on Friday and debuted at #2 in its first weekend.
The film sees Shinnosuke as a ninja, and teases at the “mystery of Shinnosuke’s birth.”
