Silent, apathetic, yet mischievous, 14-year-old Rokujou Miharu is the bearer of the hijutsu, "Shinrabanshou," a powerful technique many ninja clans desire to possess to become the ruler of Nabari. Fellow classmate Kouichi and his English teacher Kumohira are both secretly Banten clan ninjas, pledging themselves to protect Miharu from his many attackers. Keeping apathetic, Miharu attempts to reject their invitation to join their ninja "club." However, after numerous attacks, he finds no choice but to join their group as a means for his survival. Slowly, Miharu takes a step closer to becoming the ruler of Nabari.

Mixed Feelings
Recommendation: Fans of shounen action series will enjoy it. It doesn't fully come together as a "great" series in the end, but it's enjoyable and well-made even if it isn't anything revolutionary.

Story: The story follows a quiet middle school student named Miharu, who is discovered to have a power (the Shinrabanshou) inside him that effectively makes him a god, able to shape reality and even time as he wants to, only he doesn't know how to use it yet.
