Years ago Hinata Himawari was saved from an airplane by a male ninja with a tattoo on his neck, and she’s wanted to become a ninja ever since. In the present, Himawari has been accepted into the secret ninja school for girls, Shinobi Gakuen; but upon her arrival she finds much more than she was expecting: Marikoji Hayato, the school newest teacher who has a tattoo just like her benefactor! Himawari decides to claim him as her master and vows to train her hardest to become a ninja worthy of his praise, but both Hayato and she face a great deal of skepticism from the students and staff. Regardless, Himawari is determined to be the best ninja she can be, and Hayato is determined to pay off his debt!
Yuna and Mamoru have been friends all their lives, and know everything there is to know about each other. Well, except one little thing... hiding behind the nerdy glasses and lackadaisical appearance, Mamoru is actually a fiercely trained ninja – the youngest of the ninja family who has been protecting Yuna’s family for 400 years! The air headed Yuna believes her "Mamo-kun" is just a childhood friend, who coincidentally has lived beside her all her life... even when they moved! But while deceiving Yuna is easy enough, protecting her is another story. Can Mamoru keep the disaster-attracting Yuna from danger, while keeping his cover?
Ninjas, foes, pledges, love and idiotic girls. The series are very similar so I'm sure you also like this one if you liked the other anime!
Both of these series focus on a young ninja who is vowing to protect their master. They also contain a reasonable amount of humour and a central non-ninja protagonist who is somewhat bumbling and clumsy. While Kage Kara Mamoru has more plotline than Himawari!, if you enjoy watching anime about young ninjas as they struggle to either learn the ropes or come to terms with their duty then these series may be for you.
Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.
Both series are about the ninja school and the dream that the two heroes of those series had: become the best ninja. Both present action and emotional situations, so if you like one, you can't miss the other!
When Kaede, a girl frustrated with her grades like any other teenager, finds a female Ninja attempting to steal her underwear, she didn't expect a friendship to be the result. And as the modern day world of ordinary high schooler Kaede collides with Ninja-in-training Shinobu, she soon comes to discover that the world of modern day Ninjas are filled with parties, picnics, and the training of the elder master Ninja yellow form changing glob: Onsokumaru!
Koushi Inuzuka wants to be a prosecutor. He has excellent grades, good morals and is very popular. However, his father is a talented martial artist who wants Koushi to follow in his footsteps, and he is hiding an important secret! When Koushi was younger, he was betrothed to the daughter of his father’s rival: Momoko, the strongest bride in the world! She’s cute, devoted, and a talented martial artist; and with Koushi’s father’s blessing, she is now the newest member of the Inuzuka household – much to Koushi’s dismay! Now, all Koushi wants to do is live a normal life and become a great prosecutor… but with two martial artists to deal with, can he keep his path – and sanity – intact?
So, we have two incredibly energetic young girls obsessed by martial arts (as far as ninja skills and shooting dragons with your hand are considered martial arts); and then we have their love interests, a common poor weakling who has nothing to do with these practices but is constantly involved in bizarre and nonsensical situation. Oh, and then there are a lot of other girls with weird habits and each with her own personality.
To be honest, neither series is THAT good (though I think the pink shortie is much funnier), but if you don't take them too seriously they will prove a good way to spend some time.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
