The everyday Sanyo family gets an unexpected surprise in the shape of a new lodger-Hattori is a ninja boy who has come down from the Iga mountains to attend normal school. Befriending Kenichi Sanyo, who is the same age as he, Hattori starts attending school undercover, occasionally accompanied by his brother, Shinzo, Shishimaru the ninja dog, and Kenichi's girlfriend, Yumeko.

This is SUCH an underrated anime.
I understand it's for kids but dang.
I watched this and got addicted to it as a kid. SUCH a DANG nostalgic anime.

Lemme explain what this is. K so there's a lot of stuff going on. Kids bullying other kids, disagreements between people and this kid (probably THE greatest kids show character) Hattori always helps them. Since he is a ninja he always thinks of such FUN and CLEVER ways to solve the problem.

Now i don't like it AS much (it's still better than a lot of the animes coming out today) read more
