At the renowned Hanzo Academy, a select group of students trains in secret to become ninjas of an elite clan known as the Shinobi Masters. Following her grandfather's footsteps, the hopeful Asuka undergoes this intensive training alongside her distinctive group of friends: Ikaruga, Katsuragi, Yagyuu, and Hibari. Relentlessly studying the secret ninja arts, they hone their skills in the hopes of one day becoming full-fledged female ninjas.

Senran Kagura follows the girls as they fight valiantly against a mysterious new evil terrorizing Hanzo Academy. Dressed in tight clothing, they must prove their worth and protect the academy from its adversaries before it is too late!

I don’t understand the hate behind this series. Let’s be fair, it’s an ecchi anime, so we should be watching for fun over substance. And if you don’t look too hard, this is actually a pretty good and fun series :)

Art – 9 points

The character designs are very well done. First, all the girls are very attractive (pretty, hot, sexy, cute, you name it…) each with unique appearances that match their personalities.

The expression "don't judge a book by it's cover" is something you should always keep in mind, because occasionally, a show is a lot more than what it's cover suggests.

This is a quintessential ecchi action romp, plenty of fan service, serviceable action and characters that are for the most part likable. How well exactly does the show do what it does?

Let's start with an important aspect of the show, the art and animation. On the ...
