Production company Kadokawa announced an anime adaptation of Hundred Burger's Ninja to Koroshiya no Futarigurashi (The Life of a Ninja and an Assassin) manga on Tuesday, revealing a teaser visual (pictured). The anime series is being produced by animation studio Shaft.

Hundred Burger began drawing the slice of life comedy manga in Comic Dengeki Daioh "g" in February 2021. Kadokawa published the third volume last July, with the fourth volume going on sale on Friday.

Synopsis
Satoko Kusagakure, a female ninja who left her village with her comrades, finds herself living with Konoha, a high school girl working as an assassin in the city. Satoko possesses the ability to transform objects using ninjutsu, which catches Konoha's attention. They strike a deal: Konoha provides Satoko with a place to live in exchange for Satoko's help in cleaning up after her assassination jobs.

As they face off against assassins sent by Satoko's village, indulge in delicious meals using money earned from assassination jobs, and navigate the chaos of their unusual living situation, the story captures the heartwarming yet chaotic lives of these two unlikely roommates.

I don't think I've ever heard of this manga, but it seems it could be something very relaxing, funny, and cute.

MCs designs are also nice.

Gag comedy about the friendship of a high school girl and a ninja? With ninjas clans and comedic violence as a backdrop? I've already heard this somewhere.

Also, considering this is Dengeki Daoh, how gay is it? It seems that a very large portion of the original manga they publish in addition to their LN manga adaptations are yuri bait to one degree or another.

Ninin ga Shinobuden, Although this time the high school girl is also a killer, so it could also be Kill Me Baby. :) 10-10

@Dranex752 Yes, yes, thank you. I watched this anime in the 00s, but I almost forgot if it weren’t for the review I saw in the late 10s.

I took a look at the raw and there are 2 side characters who look pretty gay with each other. Some examples



Don't think this means you've won!

From what I seen so far the main cast are all girls. Guys do exist, but only as random background characters

Most of the time it's the daily life of the girls, not much action so far. For the bad guys only one appears so far and it's most likely a girl. There're only 2 volumes atm so I can't really tell anything

Note that I only took a quick look through raw and my Japanese is only at beginner level so I could be wrong

Edit: Correct some info

It's no Kunoichi Tsubaki or Senran Kagura, but it's looking cute. I'll try it out.

@Avery20 In my opinion, they are clearly drawn as token yuri girls. But otherwise it’s not even bait?

@EcchiGodMamster Lol dude you never change.

By the way, the OG creator name is suspiciously American.

@KryzakamiHrybami Most likely it's just for style, their social networks use katakana to write their names.

In my personal opinion, absolutely nothing ruins girl's cuteness more than her being a cold blooded killer, which is why I was so reserved about Yor. I never considered someone dying as anything funny. I guess I will be reseveded about this one as well.

I'll let you decide (the cloak one)

But I don't think she's the main villain. She'll probably come back later tho

The way they act is too like a couple. And most importantly, they are ROOMMATES and living together!

There's also a conversation at the short-haired girl's debut chapter, where the ninja girl said:

へ~ リーダは恋人の家で暮らしてるんですね! (Roughly translate: Heh~ So Leader is living at your girlfriend's house?)

which she replys:

そうなんだよ (Roughly translate: That's right), basicly a confirmation as I know

The word "恋人" (Lover) was brought up by the ninja girl several times during their conversations and she doesn't deny it

@Avery20 If they are already a COUPLE, then they are clearly not roommates, or rather more than that. But I already directly called them token yuri girls, I’m just saying, the rest of the manga itself isn’t even bait?

@RobertBobert

Oh sorry I got it wrong

For the main characters they don't seem to have much romantic development, but they have some moments tho. Right now I can't say its bait 'cuz it's too early to assume anything, it's more like a subtext

@Avery20 Well, thanks for the help. In that case, all I can do is see it for myself, instead of trying to ask you to retell every little detail :D
