The school gathers competent students from all over Japan to train them to become kunoichi. The people of this town are alumni of the school, and they run and jump, appear and disappear, as if the whole town were a big ninja house.
In this strange town, there came a girl and a man. The girl is Himawari, who wants to be a ninja and respect “Ichikawa Raiso” as her master, and she came here to enter Shinobi Gakuen. The man is a new assigned teacher, Marikoji Hayato. He was deceived into paying money and came here to repay his debts.
