The bishie show of the season. With ninjas. And screaming out “hidden” technique names.
It actually isn’t quite as bad as it sounds. The characters do seem somewhat interesting, and there’s fighting with mild gore. (I like how I now consider a single amputation “mild.”) The political intrigue had some potential, at least until it turned out that all the bishounens were actually working in secret to protect the girl.
But still, it’s a bishounen ninja show. Dropped.
