From Operation Boredom:
It is currently the Taiheimeji Era. It is a reign ruled by the Tokugawa shogunate. Inside this shogunate, there is a group of warriors that support the government. They are the Manyuu Clan.
In this current era, breasts mean everything. If you have breasts, you are guaranteed wealth and popularity. If you lack them, you are rarely considered "human". Members of the Manyuu Clan help raise the future big breasts. Written on a secret scroll possessed by the clan, there is said to be various techniques on how to grow big and beautiful breasts.
Chifusa is to be successor of the clan. However, she takes the secret scroll and runs away with it, hoping to fight against the cruel world that the Manyuu Clan has created...

I read about this on TV Tropes. The plot sounded so incredibly stupid that I couldn't pass it up. Gotta say this was actually pretty funny. It's about as mature as Jungle De Ikou & the author wasn't taking it serious at all, giving everyone pun names that come off like a fanfic written by a 13 year old boy who just discovered boobs existed, but when you look at how insipid the plots of most ecchi & hentai series are, you realize that it's not insulting your intelligence as much as you thought (as the main character repeatedly states that she thinks the concept of the plot is stupid, so it's self-mocking, & I get the feeling), & you're thankful that the author bothered giving it a strong female lead & an actual plot.
So a little about the art style.... The men have a very recycled design that makes them hard to distinguish from eachother, & the women are so boy-faced that they look like drag queens.
The manga seems to take itself far more seriously than the anime. Sofar only 1 volume of this manga has been scanlated & I can tell you that there is very little breast-grabbing & only moderate occasional nudity, so I don't know where the animators get off putting as much of that shit in as they could. The anime seems to go follow the Eiken & Puni-Puni Poemi school of juvenile comedy. The manga mocks it's own plot & it's target audience, making the bustiest women into selfish cruel women & all the flat-chested women into victimized angels...The anime just seems to focus on the breasts & makes them twice as big as they are in the manga, with 11 times more nudity, like the entire point of the manga being a mockery of the genre was completely lost on the director.
Chifusa reminds me of Jubei-Sama from Juubei-Chan, & Lina Inverse from Slayers; Juubei is a busty samurai warlord who has no interest in relationships & lives to fight. Lina is a flat-chested woman who is not a villain but is a wanted criminal on the run none-the-less, & has to do dumb odd jobs to make enough to eat & sleep in a hotel before hitting the road, & usually know one knows who she is until she's already left town.
If you enjoyed this manga, I recommend reading/watching Dragon Half, Kyonyuu Dragon, Blitz Tactics Najica, Juubei-Chan, Slayers, & anything by Go Nagai.

Would someone please start translating this manga i really want to know what happens after the anime. Its wierd at first i didnt like because of all the breasts=wealth nonsense but somehwere along the anime i got into it and i actually kind of like it now, its probably the kaede and chifusa combination,btw does anyone know where the romance genre came from, seems kind of random unless u count chifusa and kaede or muneyuki and ouka. Yes so back to my point, someone translate this plz.
Ok, yes, this is a series about breast ninja, but it's also quite competant Edo-era wandering swords(wo)man stuff, and most surprising of all, actually manages to inject some emotional relevance amidst the swords and breasts. What could have been a very silly ecchi comedy is something quite a bit more.
THIS HAS SO MUCH POTENTIAL, i really hope this shit goes on forever. you slash someone with a sword and that shit takes your breasts away.
