Shinobu is just an average schoolgirl and most certainly not a ninja—at least, that is what she claims. Class representative Hitoyoshi Kageyama finds this hard to believe though, as he is the only person to regularly see her scaling walls, throwing shuriken, lobbing smoke bombs, and disappearing without a trace.

Despite being an expert at combat and infiltration, Shinobu is completely inexperienced when it comes to friendship and romance. She accordingly struggles with expressing her feelings to Hitoyoshi, who is unfortunately also quite dense. Still, the two of them gradually grow closer to each other through various interactions and school activities. In the process, Shinobu also experiences life as a normal high-schooler.

There's a girl in your class. She's secretly a ninja, and you're the only one who knew her secret. Yup, that is the summary of this story.

Ninja Shinobu-san no Junjou is a refreshing ROMCOM manga which its main audience is just people who want to have a good sweetness experience of their life. I know you are kinda like "Real Life sucks and so am I rite?" guys, so just let's get going to my review.

Story (8): It is basically a slice of life story. read more

Before I get into the review I would like to say one thing. THIS MANGA IS A HIDDEN GEM. I absolutely loved this manga. It was so cute and heartwarming that it really made my day every time I read it.

Story 7/10:
The story is quite simple. There a girl who is a ninja but is not allowed to tell anyone that she is a ninja except one person, a person that she likes. In the beginning of the story we get introduced to the main MC who is the love interest of that ninja girl and we basically follow their relational development throughout the read more

It's cute, well-paced, and it ends nicely.

rest of the review... not really necessary honestly, but might as well do it for context.

Story: Story is well-paced and progresses the relationship of the two mains nicely with some development for the side cast. Story revolves around Shinobu the Kunoichi interacting with Hitoyoshi, the only guy that knows she's a ninja and is trying to expose it. First few chapters revolve around antics between the two. and honestly the first few chapters are kinda cringe-worthy at first because of hitoyoshi, but is not too bad. the manga quickly shifts gears later to developing the relationship read more

tl;dr: A pretty standard laid back rom-com where the heroine is a ninja, though that aspect isn't used all that much to its detriment.

This manga has ninjas, or rather a single ninja mainly, but for the most part it's a pretty standard laidback rom-com without much of an overarching plot and instead a bunch of small stories where things slowly develop. The relationship between the two characters, one being somewhat of a stalker and the other being really nice but dense worked well enough I suppose, and there were cute moments, slowly building up the relationship to a predictable but solid enough ending. The issue is that it read more
