The young ninja Kagetora has been given a great honor—to serve a renowned family of skilled martial artists. But on arrival, he's handed a challenging assignment: teach the heir to the dynasty, the charming but clumsy Yuki, the deft moves of self-defense and combat.

And yet, Yuki's inability to master the martial arts is not what makes this job so difficult for Kagetora. No, it's Yuki herself. Someday she will inherit her family dojo, and for a ninja like Kagetora, to fall in love with his master is a betrayal of his duty, the ultimate dishonor, and strictly forbidden. Can Kagetora help Yuki overcome her ungainly nature . . . or will he be overcome by his growing feelings?

Well, I've seen lately that there doesn't seem to be a full, proper review for this manga. That's a shame, as it really deserves one - so allow me to remedy that...

What do you get when a guy (young ninja in this case), sworn to a duty that prevents him from having feelings for a certain girl (a dojo princess) develops them anyway? You have the classic forbidden love trope.

Now, throw in some extra romantic interests for both the main characters, crank up the hilarity level, add a few extra cliche plot devices, and let it all simmer till it comes to a boil. read more

It's cool. On the first chapters, i was very bored... But When i saw the upcoming issues, it's getting more better. I didn't realized the friend who recommended this to me, this is great!

Story :
Even it's simple a story like this is very cool. I watch the ones like this. I'm addicted to sports , comedy romance , 5 shoujos chasing 1 shounen or in opposite situations, and ninjas.

Art :
Flawlessly drawn characters even it's a manga. Wow.

Enjoyment : enjoyed it a lot! Sometimes there are very funny*situations.

Character : VERY COOL

This is the story of a pubescent boy with raging hormones who gets his each and every wet dream fulfilled when he's forced to live with your stereotypical, clumsy, "dumb blonde babe" with big boobs.

She gets felt up, seen naked, there are plenty of panty and booby shots, and of course, the boy (or anyone, for that matter) never loses her favor because she's "kind."

Of course, being an airhead, she's completely oblivious as to why the boy blushes so much when he touches her breasts. She just smiles and says "that tickles!"

After feeling her up so much, the boy starts to feel hot and read more
