The story in Ninku is about an odd-looking 12-year-old boy named Fuusuke, who is a powerful warrior from the Ninku school of martial arts, a style that mixes ninjutsu and karate.

It is explained that before the present time in the story that those who could use Ninku were targeted by an evil empire and the Ninku corps were formed to combat the menace. The names of the corps were taken from the twelve Chinese zodiac animals (Eto, 干支) and each captain of the corps was called the zodiac animal Ninku master (Etonin, 干支忍). When the war was over, the Ninku were defeated and almost all of them were killed (except for a few corps' captains) since they were useless and were also dangerous for the rulers. At the beginning of the story, three years later, Fuusuke, the young former captain of the 1st Ninku corps and controller of the wind and Hiroyuki, his flatulent penguin, start searching for the other Ninku captains, each of whom can control various elements. However, a new group of Ninku users has arisen and are trying to take over the world. Fuusuke and his penguin must defeat the new Ninku empire with the help of his old comrades.

This story is interesting, not linear one, but like flash back

The story started about quite a peaceful time, after a previous war, but of course there are people that wants to wage war again, and Fuusuke, now just normal civilian dragged because the group that wants to started the war are new ninku users, and they targeted the previous captains of ninku, so Fuusuke trying to unite with the other remaining captains......
is this over? no, because after this arc the timeline of the story shifted to before war, when Fuusuke still learning about ninku and meet the other people that also wants to master read more
