Growing up, Raizo was ostracized by everyone in his home village, who treated him like garbage, a monster. He was certain he would never be able to meet a nice girl who would love him for who he was and not what he looked like. Everything changes, however, when he finds a lovely young girl passed out in a nearby river. He nurses her back to health, but before he can see her on her way, his life is threatened by warriors sent by Seigan with orders to kill the boy with the horn on his head. Lo and behold, the girl, named Kagari, is a kunoichi, a female ninja assigned to protect him by his late family, one of four, actually. Kagari's abilities are...unusual. Her Iga-Ninpo Shintaigo requires the man she loves to watch her closely in the midst of battle. This alone exposes Raizo to countless dangers, not to mention some suggestive and awkward situations, which only add to the entertainment quality of this series.
As Raizo prepares to journey throughout Sengoku Era Japan to seek a way to restore his nobility, he comes across two more who call themselves his "underlings," the level-headed markswoman with the "Rasengan" Wizard Eye (no confusing it, Naruto fans), Kisarabi, and the work-avoiding homosexual, Himemaru, whose name is ironic, yet suitable-"hime" means "princess" and "-maru" is part of a boy's name.Read more ›
This comic is rated OT for ages 16+: Violence, Adult Situations.
So yes, it's one of those books. 'Magic girlfriend' titles featuring a shy boy and adoring gorgeous women have been around for a while and has some true classics like Urusei Yatsura or Oh my Goddess. It's the sort of book where the men wear period kimonos and the ninja girls wear latex, spandex and dog collars (and lots of exposed flesh). It offers titillation but no nudity or sex. Battles, but no blood.
Oh and one of the ninja girls is a guy who cross-dresses.
The book has some cute moments, the art is good, the girls are cute but nothing stands out. I'm certainly not tempted to pick up vol 2.
Once he comes out as the last illegitimate child, then out of the woodwork comes his detractors. Young Raizo is chased as on a witch hunt, then raised to prominence by three female ninja who seek only to protect and serve. As a shy young man, his rapid entry into the world of female companionship causes his life to turn around. The love struck Kagari protects while trying to seduce, and utters the dialogue on page 24 while wrapping a towel around her naked body: "Have you heard about a boy with a horn growing from head?" This is a 16 + book, and the sexual overtones are very strong. His enemies, Kabuki Seigan, attempt to end his life and end Katana rule forever.
Let's see. Three female warriors, a clan devoted to murder, and lots of TNA. The reawakening of love. Destiny. Hmmmm. For the curious male readers out there, this book has it all. In terms of art, there is much that could have been improved, yet it is not all bad but rather a case of a handful of examples of blown storytelling.
This series does have potential. Let's hope it improves.
