Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows,
“In modern-day Japan, after an attempt is made to kill him, Ittoki Sakaruba learns that he is a direct descendant of and rightful heir to the Iga Ninja clan. His mother sends him to Ninjutsu Gakuen, the only national ninja school in Japan, to study and train as a ninja while investigations are being made to discover who is trying to kill him and why. At the school, Ittoki becomes involved with his new classmates, which include some beautiful yet deadly young ninja girls, but danger is always present…especially when there is a suspected traitor inside the school.”
Character designs for the show are done by Isamu Suzuki, who is also the animation director. The music is composed by TOMISIRO.
