Shinobi no Kuni is an epic read following traditional good and bad guys, where Shimoyama Heibe is seen as the voice of morality in the book and Mumon, the badass Shinobi ninja, is seen as the ultimate killer. And so we view the battle of Murayama and the battle of Iga from both their perspectives with much killing, bloodshed, back-stabbings and violence.

I liked the story. It had a lot to do with ethics which is something so very rare in Manga; deserving the author a definite nod of respect and approval for pushing those boundaries so seldom pushed. In all its complexities there is read more

A simple & wonderful story that was executed to perfection.

A story based on the legendary Iga ninjas with Mumon, the best ninja in the village as the protagonist. Mumon is a man who only cares about himself, as long as you don't interfere with his life or anyone & anything in his life then he will not bother you. This simple story takes on the eternal theme of morality, what is wrong? who decides what's right? Why can't I decide what's right? etc.. The story use characters to portray the different opinions of this theme.
Art is very good, Story is simple yet very complex read more

A 7 to 10 series. It’s very entertaining, has a “strong MC” and a memorable art style, contains a lot of humor and no less gore, though its ending is rushed and some developments are, maybe, suboptimal… But, well, let’s not rush the review at least.

It’s necessary to give praise where it’s due, especially since this can be a decisive moment for many readers. The main character of this manga is ungodly badass, he’s just like… the design, the movement, the battle prowess, the laid-back personality when not murderous – he has it all. And he is fun – he has a lot of comedy read more
