Type: Nonsense with Ninjas
Synopsis: It’s about Ninjas…who do nonsense.
Pros: I watched this because I had nothing better to do. But you kinda want to watch this when you have nothing better to do. This is great background noise. Something you can put on when you want to do something else. Most episodes are stand alone, and being a gag comedy, the plot is a non-issue. Onsokumaru is the comedic heavy hitter, the Steve Urkel if you will. You tune in to see him and his perverted antics. Milage may vary in terms of tolerance, but he’s more good than bad. This is a comedy based on ninja, so some of the jokes are: an army of ninja that aren’t very good, Shinobu the female ninja who isn’t very good, etc.
Cons: This is a very throw away anime. You could watch it, you could not watch it, and your overall net life experience won’t change much. There was a point in the anime when the show hint at some “mysterious” secret involving Shinobu, and I (despite knowing better) fell for it. For a minute, I thought the battle depicted in the opening was going to happen, and all the characters were going to show their cool side. Nope. It’s not that kind of show. It’s a straight silly comedy from the early 2000’s. Fan service jokes. Gag heavy. Cartoony.
Watch it?: Take it or leave it. (3/5)
Best Episode: Ep. 4 “Ninja, Getting Hot”/”Miyabi, Falling in Love” (eh, it has a story)
