Kanzo Hattori, an apprentice Ninja, leaves his home town of Iga for his final training. He must go to the city of Edo (Tokyo), and the first person he meets shall be his master, whom he must protect with his life, whilst upholding the ninja code. Also while in Edo, Hattori must find out why their rivals, the Koga Ninjas, are flourishing while the Iga Ninjas are dying out. Hattori's master is Kenichi, a 9 year old boy. Kenichi is an introvert and not very popular boy, so he never plays with the other children from school. Kenichi also has a secret crush on a young lady called Midori, yet he's too shy to speak to her. Though as he watches Hattori trying his best, he too begins to try. Meanwhile, people are being found unconscious, their bodies completely unmarked. All the victims have a tattoo (the Koga Ninja crest) and are found with a throwing knife lying close by.

Manga lover this is "IT" !
1 February 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

What an adaptation! The manga I discovered after, is a real pleasure. The movie is a great adaptation from the story of a clumsy smart ninja kid's initiation to the real thing! The character itself is very lovable and the movie reproduces exactly what we can expect from the manga series. Fun, entertaining and absolutely not pretentious, this the key to enter the Hattory's story. Japanese got it all, humble, simple, smart and efficient... My first experience with this kind of comedy was the best by far. Ashamed of smiling in front of ninja kids 10 (lol), well you'll definitely crack up for something's worth it. Forget everything about Ninja Hong Kong movie for once, and you'll be extremely amazed by such a humble comedy like only Japaneses can make. A must in its kind
