Himawari Hinata recently transfered to Shinobi Gakuen to train to become the best kunoichi she can be. She wanted to be a ninja ever since she was saved by one when she was little. On her first day, she meets Hayato Madenokoji (a new transfer teacher) who saves her life. Hayato does not possess any ninja skills or traits, he is teaching the ninjas about normal society to pay off his debt. However, Himawari notices that Hayato bares the same mark on his neck as the ninja who saved her when she was young.

Mixed Feelings
Considering it's quite old and my enjoyment value, I award this anime a 6/10. Without those considerations, giving it a 5/10 is the most I could ever give it, maybe even a 4/10 if I am to be more stringent. Does this mean it's not good enough to watch or that it sucks? Nah, not really, it's actually fairly enjoyable.

The thing I'm most disappointed about is that the mc isn't a ninja and hasn't got any real combat prowess whatsoever, especially since he's got that ninja symbol for his family line or clan or whatever on his neck, seems the only thing he inherited was ...
