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?

I've seen that there isn't 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. You now have 'Kagetora' in a read more

This was a decent enough romcom. The aspects to being a ninja and the duty based relationship resulted in a pretty interesting relationship between the two. However, it also resulted in one that moved incredibly slowly. The side stories were decent enough, so it didn't feel like it was dragging on too much, but they did seem to feel like they were getting repetitive and pointless at points.  The comedy only being okay and action being weaker than I expected didn't help. The main couple's personalities came through pretty well and got some solid development. Most of the side characters, especially the alternate romantic interests, felt really underdeveloped and some 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
