Experience Naruto and Bleach 'your' way

Ever watch your favourite anime and think you can do it better?

Publisher NGames are giving players of their free-to-play Naruto/Bleach-inspired MMO, Pockie Ninja a chance to make their own anime scenes, with in-game prizes on offer for the best entries.

Publisher NGames have announced two new competitions for players of their anime-inspired browser-based brawler, Pockie Ninja, inviting users to get creative with their favourite anime shows and win big prizes for their in-game characters.

Pockie Ninja takes inspiration from the characters and settings of popular anime series' Naruto and Bleach, combining both universes into one game world with an overarching storyline.

Pockie Ninja DIY Comic Challenge

Running June 15th– July 12th

NGames are taking Naruto and Bleach back to their comic-book roots with this latest DIY competition, challenging Pockie Ninja players to create their own spoof comic panels and be crowned a“Spoof Master”.

Participating fans can download one of ten pre-made templates from the official Pockie Ninja website ( available here!), each featuring different characters and scenes. You must then add your own dialogue, in English, using the provided mapping tools, before uploading the final work to the Pockie Ninja FanPage Wall.

Example entries

Alternatively, creative players can even use their own unique templates to set their entry apart from the others. You can use your wild imagination to poke fun at anything!

Winners will be chosen on July 13th, based on a combination of picture quality, comments and feedback. The top twenty Spoof Master's will be rewarded 300 gift coupons and an Orange outfit wishing pot (can be used to select one of the available orange outfits).

Cartoonize Yourself! Show off your Acting Talent

Running June 15th– July 12th

Pockie Ninja already lets you play as some of the most famous anime characters ever created - but that's not enough for NGames.

The newly launched Cartoonize Yourself competition challenges Pockie Ninja players to literally become their favourite Naruto and Bleach characters, posing for cosplay style pictures to win generous in-game prizes.

Everyone can find a favored character in Naruto and Bleach, but what brings them to life is their vivid facial expressions, however annoying, hilarious, sad or naughty they may be.

Entrants can simply pick a picture of any character from either Naruto or Bleach, take a photo of themselves imitating the character's gesture/expression, then upload both pictures (the original and the fan photo) to the Pockie Ninja FanPage Wall. Don't forget to write down your account, in-game name and server.

Example Entries

Any Naruto or Bleach-relevant image can be used for the competition, providing it doesn't promote vulgar and/or inappropriate imagery.

Winners will be chosen on July 13th based on a combination of comments and similarity to the original picture.

First Prize (1 winner): Ninja Hero*1(30 days) Advanced Sage Panacea*5 Skip Card*

Second Prize (2 winners): Ninja Hero*1(30 days) Advanced Sage Panacea*3 Skip Card*2

Third Prize (3 winners): Ninja Hero*1(30 days) Advanced Sage Panacea*1 Skip Card*1

Pockie Ninja!

Anime fans and gamers alike are quickly making Pockie Ninja their new online home. A free-to-play browser-based brawler MMO incorporating some of the best known characters and special abilities from the fan favourite Bleach and Naruto series' - including Naruto Uzumaki and his infamous Demon Fox form– Pockie Ninja has amassed over 3 million registrations during it's beta period alone!

With a constant stream of updates, events and challenges for players to explore and enjoy, such as the recently launched Chapter II: Revenge of Aizen content, you'll have endless fun embracing the ways of the ninja while helping to restore the natural balance of order to Angel City.

Pockie Ninja offers a deep item synthesising system, allowing any two items to be combined into often surprising results, and a robust choice of customisable outfits that each offer special abilities and stat boosts.
