Can't rate it down for being only 5 volumes. Really nice, fitting art, great plot backed up by the character's personalities. Short and sweet, in my current top 5 manga.
A good martial art manga
In my opinion it was right to keep it short. I agree with the comment of Zeidrich, although I would not call it awesome. Interesting, quick paced, predictable. Not at the level of Blade of the immortal, but still worth a read

My 2 Cents
I didnt like it very much, I know its for certain people who like action blood and extreme amounts of gore but I could already see how this was going to end after reading volume 1. Everything became a little too predictable and I found the gore to be getting annoying. Gantz has lots of gore but at the same time they have a better storyline and a not so boring formula. For those who need gory mangas to appease them, read Gantz instead.
Ninja fight! Yeah!
Awesome manga! The main plot is the relationship between the leaders of two ninja clans but what you basically see is ninjas fighting ninjas with incredible skills. The art is superb! Definitely a must-see seinen.
Crazy awesome. The artwork is detailed and remarkable. While the story isn't ingenious, the characters are unique enough to be enthralling keeping you suspended in the thrill of action. Your typical ninja manga done very well. Excellent.
Realism is a plus. Although the length of the story detracts the appeal. The subplot for each character fleshes them out making them more substantial. For such a short story, this was awesome, lol...
Good Artwork and deep plot. It is very short... thats -1 point very good manga, just like romeo & julia
one of the most realistic ninja mangas ever it should be rated 10 out of 10.i say that because most ninja mangas aren't that realistic such as naruto though it is still good but i rate it 9/10 base on the story
Ninjas, a feud spanning centuries, plenty of action and at the heart of it all, a shakesperean love story. Definitely worth a read. The art is superb: original, bold with great creative character designs. I thought the length of the manga was just fine with nice pacing as far as the story goes, although it would've been nice to have more depth as to why the feud started in the first place like the anime explains...
Very good and interesting series, gay surely haven't even looked at it going to conclusions so fast...
characters have strange abilities, fast pace story, good artwork (even though I don't like the artwork that looks digitaly animated)
