Ittoki Sakuraba fails to understand why his mother, his uncle, and his childhood friend, Kousetsu, seem to take his security so seriously. Kousetsu constantly follows and observes him with no regard for his privacy, focusing only on keeping him safe every waking moment. But the consistent hounding starts making sense when an adorable second-year student at his high school, Satomi Tsubaki, asks Ittoki out on a date. Though initially innocent, Tsubaki's true intentions soon become apparent when Ittoki visits her house; she plans to assassinate him, and she is not alone. Surprisingly, the ones who come to his aid are his uncle and Kousetsu—donning their dark and deadly ninja attire.

After Ittoki is escorted to safety, his mother reveals the truth: he is the 19th heir to a noble clan of ninjas known as the Iga, and the target of assassination by their rival clan, the Koga. In order to protect himself against this new threat, Ittoki must hone his skills at the only ninja academy remaining in Japan: the Kokuten Ninja Academy.

During the first episode of *Shinobi no Ittoki*, future ninja clan leader Ittoki is approached by a female classmate named Tsubaki and asked out on a date, which culminates in him being invited up to her room where she dresses scantily and tries to seduce him (keep in mind, they’re in middle school). When Ittoki rebukes her attempts, he plays it off like some kind of joke and nervously chuckles as he checks under her bed to see ninjas lying in wait to kill him. They attack and cut his face, but even with this having just happened, he asks what kind of prank she’s ...

We’ve been blessed with quite a few good to great anime original series in this decade so far, ranging from Odd Taxi, to Lycoris Recoil, and even Do it Yourself this anime season. I suppose this is a grim reminder that not every single original can be done at an elite level, but even so, this show was quite the abhorrent showing, oozing of generic storytelling, mixed with a lot of contrivances, questionable ideas, and very inconsistent character writing. I’m not one to lambast things often, but this show needs to have its fair grilling.


You’ll see this in the synopsis already, but essentially, Ittoki, the ...

Mixed Feelings
how do I begin?
Imagine how it would feel to see the most ridiculous of characters in anime that still decide to take themselves seriously. Now, I know there are exceptions, but the only thing the characters in this anime do is BELIEVE that they are cool. the author too , believes in this genre to such a degree that it quite literally tries to SIMULATE naruto. While that is fine by itself, but, the show tries so hard to seem like a serious mystery thriller with an underground ninja empire, and bla bla, the problem is naruto had 700 episodes and this one, tries to ...
