The art of the steal
NIS America is releasing a new tongue-in-cheek promo video series for Kamiwaza: Way of the Thief. These spots feature NIS America’s mascot, Prinny, as they try and sneak their way around the NIS America offices. As you might expect, it doesn’t go too well! You can check out the third installment above, which is all about stealing.
Set during the Edo period of Japan, Kamiwaza: Way of the Thief stars amateur thief Ebizo, who aspires to steal from the rich and give to the poor. During his first stint, however, he and his mentor, Ainosuke, witness their own men take the lives of innocent civilians. Disillusioned by the horrific display of violence, Ainosuke advises Ebizo to escape with the only survivor—a lone girl.
A decade later, Ebizo has held fast to his morals, living an honest and fulfilling life with Suzuna, the young girl he took in as his own daughter. But the illusion of security is shattered once Suzuna falls ill. In order to buy the medicine she desperately needs, Ebizo is faced with a heavy financial burden. Conflicted, Ebizo is forced to return to the underbelly of Mikado, but vows only to steal for the sake of those less fortunate.
Will you walk the path of honor, even as a thief? The choice is yours to make.
