From Del Rey:

By the order of Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, ten ninja from the Iga and the Kouga clans must fight to the death in order to determine who will be the next Tokugawa Shogun, with the surviving clan ruling for the next thousand years. But Oboro of the Iga clan and Gennosuke of the Kouga clan have fallen deeply in love. Now these star-crossed lovers have been pitted against each other. Can their romance conquer a centuries-old rivalry? Or is their love destined to end in death?

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

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.

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...

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...
