Kagemori Mamoru is a dowdy boy whose hair is disheveled and who wears thick glasses, but he is actually the son of a ninja family. They have protected their neighbors, the Konnyaku family, secretly for 400 years. Mamoru has personally protected their daughter, Konnyaku Yuuna, since they were in kindergarten. When Yuuna is in trouble, Mamoru puts on ninja suit and turns into a competent ninja to help her.
NOTE: I wrote this review quite some time ago, and it doesn't meet my current standards, however since there are no other reviews here, it may be somewhat informative.
Story: Nerd-glasses wearing student one second, handsome & mysterious ninja the next, Mamoru comes from a family of ninjas. Their purpose is to secretly protect the Konnyaku family, whom they have always lived next door to. Mamoru's particular mission is to protect the daughter, Yuna, and he has done so since he was small. This is made more difficult thanks to Yuna being a clumsy airhead who always manages to land herself into far-more-than-your-average amount of trouble. They are good friends (She has not yet mentioned that she loves him), and always go places together, which helps greatly with being nearby to protect her.
Also, a number of female warriors appear, all of whom become enamoured with Mamoru(the ninja), and they begin fighting each other for him.
Summary: A moderately paced series that follows Mamoru as he tries to protect Yuna without her knowledge, and defend himself from assassins, not to mention his parent's training, while the female warriors fight over Mamoru in the background.
My Thoughts: Now, I've seen a few clumsy, idiotic anime characters in my time, but I think that Yuna takes the cake, then trips and falls into it, and promptly falls asleep, leaving mamoru to drag her away so she doesn't suffocate. I can't remember ever seeing a character so consistantly air-headed and clumsy, and there is a fair bit of variety to the situations she gets herself into. It's probably worth a look just for that fact.
Apart from Yuna herself, there is a lot of funny stuff going on, such as ninja dogs and ninja rabbits.
There's not a lot of combat, but what's there is stylish, and often humerous.
Music: The opening/closing themes(Japanese) are nice, upbeat, and might get stuck in your head for a bit, but probably not worth putting in the collection.
In closing: A good, but short, series, worth watching more for the comedy than the combat. I give it a thumbs up. I recommend it to anyone that likes idiotic anime characters or funny ninjas.read more
This is a pretty decent anime. You have this boy ninja who has to protect his neighbor (a clumsy, childish, loving girl who he grew up with) because of this promise made by his family a long time ago. He first appears nerdy but when he has to fulfill his duty he turns into this nice looking serious ninja. The story pretty much revolves around his duty to protect his childhood friend/neighbor. Throughout this process, they (main character and other characters) face new challenges, meet new friends, and feelings grow. So all in all it was good filled with some comedy, a touch of romance, and ninja action. Quite enjoyable and not over the top. You can pretty much telll how the story will evolve as you watch each episode so its kinda predictable. This anime gets a 9.read more
Kage kara Mamoru! is a ninja theme with a lot of comedy anime, this anime tell about a ninja clan named Kagemori who sworn to protect Konyaku Family and their descendant started 400year before.
Main Character Hero called Kagemori Mamoru has a duty to protect Yuna Konyaku. They even become a friend since chillhood. Mamoru don't have a clue about women feeling, yet he's skilled enough as Ninja. Yuna are a clumsy type heroine that will makes you hoots of laughter while watching this anime.
During his duty to protect her, he meet other female characters that later will become his friends (and all of them falling in love with him, so it's kinda makes soft harem anime).
I recommended this anime to all of you whos seek for a light harem and lot of comedy.
