Rantarou, Shinbei and Kirimaru are ninja apprentices in the Ninja Gakuen, where first grade ones are called "Nintamas" (contraction of the words ninja+tama (egg)). They must learn everything a ninja must know, but as for our heroes, money, food or playing are more interesting. The series show the everyday adventures of our heroes, segmentated in a cartoon fashion, like 2 small episodes in a 30-min show. The cast also includes the teachers (Doi-sensei and crossdressing Yamada-sensei), nintama kunoichis, evil guys (Dokutake ninjas) and even family members of all the cast...

This would be my second anime review on MAL. Nintama Rantarou was an anime that I have watched many times on my local-cable cartoons with lots of random episodes played on afternoon marathons. The cast of the trio consist of Rantarou, a regular ninja kid, Kirimaru, the pernicioust one, reacts to the sound of money being dropped and Shinbe, the fat kid. The story revolves around the trio doing mischief and sometimes being dragged into it. The artstyle of the show is pretty basic with being shounen show that kids watch on a Saturday morning. The sound quality is fair. I enjoyed it as a read more
