WAY,WAY better than I thought it was going to be!!
What a gem of an Anime this is, I can not believe it’s was only 12 episodes long, That is way to short. I’ve seen some really good Anime with only a 12 or less episode run, and some real bombs that dragged on and on for 24 or more episodes. “Ninja Nonsense” DIDN'T RELY on "Fan Service",(but there is some) it tried this new thing called humorous dialog, and one liners that didn’t insult our intelligent, instead it counted on it. I tell you to me it seems like too many Anime’s that are rated MA or higher are aimed at people that are (suppose to be) too young to watch them. I’m glad this wasn’t one of those. After I gave up for good trying to watch "Excel Saga"<<-((sorry I just couldn't take it any longer, or else my ears would've started to bleed!)) I'm glad I decided to watch "Ninja Nonsense" it made me feel better, but now it's over and I wish there was more.

Had me laughing out loud!
I finished this series about a week ago and it still makes me smile to remember some of the scenes. Firstly, when they titled this nonsense, they were being accurate. Don't look for plot continuity or even much ninja action. Instead, you will be seeing two vignettes per episode involving the super-cute ninja trainee Shinobu, her "more than a friend, less than a lover" GF Kaede, Ninja-mentor-flying-yellow-spherical-"being" Onsakumaru, a bunch of grey-clad indistinguishable ninjas (of whom one is named Sasuke)and Shinobu's magical little sister Miyabi, all interacting in various ridiculous and non-ninja-like endeavors. Shinobu is trusting and gullible, Kaede is skeptical, the panty-crazed Onsakumaru is scheming and hysterically funny and fierce Miyabi doles out the punishment. The Japanese voice acting is spot-on with Onsakumaru moody, outrageous and very, very funny. This is the funniest gag anime ever - well worth the investment. I intend to watch it over & over. It's not possible to pick up all the background action by Onsakumaru and the ninjas in one viewing. I love this anime!
