Storyline

Shinobu is a trainee female ninja who lives at a ninja training school with several dozen anonymous male ninja and her lecherous master/companion, Onsokumaru, a shape-shifting ball-like creature of indeterminate species. Ordinary high-schooler Kaede befriends Shinobu when she catches her sneaking into her bedroom to steal a pair of her underpants (part of her ninja exam set by Onsokumaru). Shinobu is distressed at failing even this simple task, but Kaede, knowing the pressure of exams, takes pity on Shinobu and gives her a pair of her panties. Thus begins a friendship that sees Kaede drawn into Shinobu's world of ninja scholastics, a world where actual ninja training takes a back seat to sleeping in, watching TV, eating snacks and goofing off!

Ninja 1: That's a homerun for the girl's team!
Onsokumaru: Stop! Now wait just a minute here!
Ninja 1: What? You have a problem with my judgement as the umpire? Assistant umpire, *that's* a penalty.
Ninja 3: Yes sir!
Ninja 2: Well, look at this. It looks like the assistant umpire has made a stick to shove up his butt.
Onsokumaru: Dah, those stubby branches look like they'd be incredibly comfortable but, uh...
Ninja 2: Onsokumaru does not look too pleased with that penalty.

Entertaining but nothing spectacular
9 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I've only seen the first three episodes of this show but it doesn't seem like a show that is going to change much. The main character Kaede is a normal school girl who is studying when she catches Shinobu trying to break it her house. Shinobu is a ninja in training whose test is to steal a girl's panties. Some odd things happen and in the end the two girls end up becoming friends. The humor in the show is derived from Shinobu's innocence and her teacher Onsokumaru (a big yellow ball creature) being a pervert. The show does it have its moments where some funny things do happen but these for the most part are rare. However this is one of those shows with such a nice atmosphere that you can't help but watch.
