Watch it, old man!

What the f***?

You're doing it wrong.

The needle is doing

what the needle does.

What the f*** is that

supposed to mean?

The irezumi does not hide the skin,

the tattoo reveals the nature of the man

and illuminates the four noble professions

in the Book of Five Rings:

the Warrior, the Artist,

the Merchant, and the farmer.

If there is a conflict between

the needle and the skin,

between the mark and the man,

perhaps the path you have chosen is not

the path for which you are suited.

What did you just say, old man?


I know you didn't just disrespect me,

did you?

You that f***ing stupid?

You disrespect me, and I'll tattoo

this ceiling with your f***ing brains!

No disrespect.

You're lucky.

I can't kill you

'til you finish this thing.

Gimme that mirror!

How's it looking?

Not bad.

Hey, boss.

This just came for you.

What is it?

A letter.

So open it, dumb ass.


What is it?

Looks like sand.

Yup. Sand.

Black Sand.


You know what this is?


Hey, you wanna let us in on the joke?

Years ago, I watched a man open an envelope

like that one.

There were many with him

and they laughed as you laugh now.

Then it came from the shadows

and their laughter was drowned in blood.

What came out of the shadows?

I cannot say the word.

What word?

That night,

one of their blades struck here.

I should have died,

but for an accident of birth.

My heart is here,

on the other side.

What the f*** is that?

Looks like a Ninja, boss.

A ninja?

Are you kidding me?

That's the word you're afraid to say?



You old f***!

You had me going!


That's some good sh*t.

F***! F***!

you don't have to do this!

Whatever they pay you,

I'll double it!

I'll triple it!

You hear me!

I'll pay you whatever you want!

You cannot bargain with it

you cannot reason with it because...

it is not a human being

It is a demon sent

straight from the hell.

You shut up old man!

For fifty-seven-years,

Ive told your story...

No one ever believed me.

But you are real,

arent you?



Is all that for the Delgata case?

This is Delgata.

- And the rest?

- Evidence.


No. Not again.

Mika, please.

What's the problem,

youve trusted my research before.

All right, here's a question for you.

Which of these words does not

belong in this sentence:

laptops, space shuttles,

nanotechnology, ninjas.

All Im asking for is an hour.

Thats all.

Why do I think

Im going to regret this?

You remember the Eulmi incident?

Korean queen, late eighteen-hundreds.

Killed by one of these ninja clans.


I think.

Now Ive been going through

the original transcripts

of the trial of Kunitomo Shigeaki.

The prosecutor questioned Shigeaki

about a payment of 100 pounds of gold.

Shigeaki answered that he didnt know

what the prosecutor was talking about.

The question was never brought up again.

But what pinged for me was the amount-

the exact same amount

rumored to be paid to the Ozunu Clan

for the yakuza massacre

that xxx last week in Osaka.

So you start to wonder,

in this ever changing world,

if the cost of a mans life

has remained constant.

Exactly. And I figure these clans

are like a thousand years old.

They probably dont change a lot.

So I started looking at

international wire transfers,

targeting banks in the regions

of several high-profile assassinations

and bingo -

Russian Prime Minister Zhukov.

The day before the assassination

$1,555,999.90 was transferred

from the bank of Shanghai.

That is the exact market value

of one hundred pounds of gold.

Okay you got me.

This is interesting.

The clans are real, Ryan.

They steal children

and turn them into assassins.

Yeah. Look Mika, no one's denying

the historical facts.

But this whole thing just doesn't make

sense anymore in modern world.

Theyre real.

I mean you can call them spooks,

or assassins, or whatever you want

if it makes you feel better,

but theyre out there

and theyre killing people

and nobody is doing a damn thing

to stop them.


Excuse me?

Would you mind?

If it's not too much trouble,

could you help me with this?

What clan are you from?

What are you doing in Berlin?

I don't understand.


What's going on?

- So you say you found something?

- Yeah.

I was taking around try to seek something

I can come up with and I found this.

A report. A friend of mine

in Moscow, tipped me to it.

It was written during

the height of the Cold War

by a high ranking KGB agent

Aleksei Sabatin.

In it, he raises the possibility

that number of political assassinations

were conducted by an ancient

but very sophisticated network

he calls the Nine Clans.

Mind you,

he doesnt call them ninjas.

What happened to him?

Same thing thats going to happen to me,

if I hang around with you---

take down of the service

for mental instability.

You believe it now,

dont you?


You gotta be joking.

Then why are you doing this?

I don't know.

But I can guarantee you that

it has nothing to do with the fact

that youre the most attractive

researcher that Ive ever worked with.

Oh, Mr. Nan, good, you're back.

We had a heating problem,

and I had to go into your apartment.

- Is it all right?

- it's all fixed.

You keep it very dark and spare in there.

And forgive me but I couldn't

help notice in your suitcases.

I told you

my father was a very sick man.

Do you have to leave Bellinzona?

Not yet.

But I'm expecting a phone call.

I'm sorry to hear that.

One day death will come for us all.

Wherever you are,

wherever you may go,

you must never forget who you are,

how you came to be.

You are Ozunu.

You are a part of me

as I am a part of you.

This is the truth of your lives

and it will remain true after death.

This is my new son.

I have given him the name Raizo.

Welcome him as your brother.

"Welcome Raizo"

The body must obey the will.

Hunger and thirst,

even the blood in your veins,

are the bodys weaknesses.

Master them,

and you master the self.

This is the power of the Ozunu clan.

This is the way of the ninja.

Eat tonight and you work

twice as hard tomorrow.

What are you depressed?

Look at your brother.

Life combat.

You know it's truth.

Abandoned by your parents.

Without a home.

Without people to care for you.

You should have died.

But, instead you fought.

As you did here today.

He fought. And he won.

He combat.

He freezed his enemy.

Without doubt.

Without thinking of worries.

You must not feel nothing at all.

Pain feeds weakness.

Remember suffering exists

only because weakness exists.

You must hate all weakness.

Hate it in others,

but most of all hate it in yourself.

- Mrs. Sabatin?

- Ja.

I'm Mika Corretti with Europol.

We spoke on the phone.

You said you read

my husband's report, yes?


I understand the report caused some

problems for him with the KGB.
