In the Sengoku Period.
The greatest military power of each country is the “Ninja”, and the children born in the ninja line were aiming to become ninja by learning ninjutsu at school.

A battle action manga in which ninjas use their supernatural skills “Ninjutsu” to engage in flashy battles.

A world view that skillfully tackled folk tales and lore of various parts of Asia. “Friendship”, “Betrayal and Revenge”, and “Family Bonds” are mainly drawn. It is a multi-layered story development that includes the world of Ninjya and its origin and history.

From the middle stage, it includes elements that not like a boy manga, such as “dialogue” and “forgiveness”.

In the “Pain senses” that is highly supported by readers, the way of drawing “to talk to the enemy who killed Naruto’s master and reconcile” was “a way that boys’ manga would not normally do”, the author says later.

“Ninja” is extremely popular overseas and is recognized as the successor work of “Dragon Ball”, which represents the 2000s.
