After the death of Saizou, Kabamaru's horribly strict grandfather and Iga ninja teacher (sensei), an old lady, Ran Ookubo, claims that she received a letter from him asking her to take care of his grandson. So Kabamaru runs off with Lady Ookubo to the big city Tokyo to gorge on yakisoba, ramen, chow mein, and attend a regular school—which turns out to have weird quirks of its own.

I am, and thousands of other people I met in my life, a big fan of this series. I might be a little biased since I come from a generation that grew up watching this but the truth is that the story, the characters and the soundtrack are still some of the best in the genre.


Kabamaru's story is a comedy from start to finish with laughs guaranteed at every episode. It is reminiscent of Ranma 1/2 in many ways but it has its own unique flavor. It has it all ninjas, school romance, comedy, impressive fights and did I mention ninjas. Without giving too much read more

A comedy anime that hedges all it's bets on the comedy but isn't really that funny. It looks like garbage, the characters are garbage, the sound is double garbage and ... yeah just don't watch this series.

I was told that I need to explain why someone might like this series in my negative reviews. So if you like this series it will be for the comedy, it's mostly "the protagonist is a massive jerk" and if you're into that and have already seen ... Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and even the second half of SAO S1 then you may want to turn to this series.
