Shinobi Life
Volume 1


Energetic and strong-willed, Beni doesn't care if she lives or dies as long as her death will result in embarrassing her arrogant father! But one day, she suddenly encounters a Kagetora, a ninja who's fallen from the sky and swears complete loyalty to her—as her bodyguard. Kagetora has time traveled from a long, long time ago, and has devoted his life to protecting Princess Beni. Little does Kagetora know that this Beni is not the real princess... Can true love and honor survive after centuries-long time warp—in a crazy modern world?

Loved it :D

I thought it would be the usual shoujo manga, but I was totally wrong.

The time travelling plot was very interesting and I did not guess what will happen next. Also, it was a happy ending :)

Story: 8/10
It's not your typical romance manga but a time travel twist added to it. This makes the story quite interesting. The story has a happy ending for the main characters but sad endings for 4 side characters. Renkaku and Enji, Hachikuma and Hirono [I think I took the name right] have tragic fate. Other than that, it was mysterious and happy ending.

Art: 8/10
It was good.

Character: 9/10
They are relatable and you will feel for them in case you are capable of attaching yourself to the situation.

Mixed Feelings
The series is about a Ninja going into the future and finding a girl that looks like she's the exact same as the princess he was supposed to protect.
