Tsubaki hails from an all-female clan of ninjas hidden deep in the forest. While a strict code guides the many kunoichi in training, the most important rule the young women must adhere to is: never interact with men, for they are far too dangerous to be trusted.

As the leader of Team Dog, Tsubaki has many duties she must handle. However, despite being a skilled trainee, she begins to react strangely whenever the topic of men surfaces. Unaware of what mysterious feelings are taking over her heart, Tsubaki's growing curiosity soon interferes with her ability to keep up with her work.

Out of 100 Nobles watching…

3 can sympathize with non-believers

Kunoichi Tsubaki no Mune no Uchi seemed to hilariously come and go mostly unnoticed in this age of western media starting Twitter campaigns against shows like Nagatoro or Uzaki-chan of all things. The show is a pretty cut and dry coming of age story about a young girl hitting puberty in a much tamer manner than something like Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo (O Maidens in their Savage Season). The show is excellently made, has a lot of variety and heart, and without any knowledge of the source manga ...

Mixed Feelings
It was a good job, the colors of the characters were cute and you liked them, but in my opinion, the story is not good at all, if it has a next season and also has a hidden love, it is not good, it was more like (Yuri's village), the story part is not good My personal opinion was that this is a matter of taste, but the quality of the work was really good

One positive thing is that there are many characters and they have variety. I liked it, but there was no man in the story, it was all hidden☹️

And the fact ...

Preliminary (3/13 eps)
I thought this show would be a...comedy of some sort. No, just generic CGDCT. Does this show stand out from the other CGDCT shows? absolutely not. Too many characters are introduced, with the main character having a elementary level obsession with men and romance.

Also, the foreheads. Anime girls in CGDCT shows already have crazy weird proportions, but this show takes it a step further. All of these girls look like they have brain tumors compared to regular looking anime girls (which again, already have crazy proportions)

Then there's the ninja plot setting. Honestly, the appeal of CGDCT is probably the fact that it's "healing," ...
