Since long ago, a bitter rivalry and feud has long existed between two clans, the Toujo and Toyoda families. Because of this feud, it has long been Kanade's job as a shinobi to ensure the safety of Keigo, a member of the Toujo family, ever since childhood. Her devotion to her duty as a guard is a source of contention for Keigo, who would rather have her as a childhood friend than as a protector.

Of course, this protection extends all the way to school, so when Kanade comes across the Eishi Toyoda in class, the heir to the Toyoda family, she is initially hostile. After an attack, Kanade soon discovers Eishi is not exactly who she expected, and that threats to Keigo's safety do not just exist from the Toyoda family but within the Toujo family itself.

Likable but...

Well I wrote a short review before about my first (very good) Impression of it, but I decided after reading a few chapters it deserved a better evaluation.

I do like this story and look forward for future chapters. However, at the pace things are going it's getting a little more stereotypical than I thought it would be (ex. main female lead isn't as emotionally strong/gender neutral as you may have thought in the first chap.) Plus things are moving a little faster than I had expected. I would be really disappointed if it just turned into another fluffed up story of a female guard protecting her master out of duty but then being super girly/wishy washy in the mix. I'm just throwing out criticism for those looking for something more unique, not that it can't end up wowing us later.

I won't deny I'm a sucker for gender benders and potential love-triangle-blushery but I don't want this to be something I've seen a thousand times over, only with better art (which by the way is gorgeous, UGh, srsly perfection).

Oh my goodness, I really didn't expect it to be as good as it is, seeing there isn't a description here on baka... Well in any case, while it may not be the most original of ideas, it certainly changes things up a bit from your regular run-of-the-mill. Often you see males serving females, and thus forming a reverse-harem, but the other way round really isn't much found in much ones that have a crappy female and leading up to a crappy romance. There may be a few out there, but I certainly can't remember one off the top of my head.

Most mangas with female leads out there, and those with female maids and servants, you get more of those mentally weak females than you'd want. While there are plenty of physically strong females, and as much as they act strong, you'd see them getting all depressed or worried over nothing at all. One chapter in so much isn't said here yet, but as far as I can tell that girl won't go crying over every little word or action done by a guy. Refreshing, I'd say.

There's really nothing to complain about the art. While I personally adore the older styles, you see more personality in them, but that doesn't mean that this kind of stuff is bad. Clean, pretty, not much else to say.

i found this manga while searhing for something to read, unsure of wether or not to start reading since only a single chapter has come out. i picked it anways and began to read and almost instantly i began to love this story well the first chapter at least. the artist does a wonderfull job and the girl ninja isnt just some clumsy chick. she passes off as a dude while being able to protect her and the one she serves friend. to put it simply the girl aint nothing weak and i just simply loved this story from the first chapter which for me its hard to get me hooked only by reading the first chapter.

oh, wow, i just realized how weird that phrase above is... anyways, this manga (chap1) is really good. it has to do with modern day ninjas/shinobi, and is simply amazing. the artwork is great, and the storyline is incredible. Can't wait for the next chapter!

Kazamaki is totally awesome!! like, a first class shinobi that's really a girl!! i LOVE that sort of thing. and with a rival family that has a stupid and mad-lucky head is just way to funny!

You won't regret picking up this one.
