▍In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki Story
Deep within a remote mountain, a group of Kunoichi lived.
The Kunoichi call themselves the Akane clan, and were divided into several groups.
Every day, they polished their skills through friendly rivalry.
There is within the Akane clan, however, an ironclad rule that must not be broken. “Contact with Men is strictly prohibited.”
Tsubaki, the apprentice ninja and leader of the Akane clan’s Inu squad, is a master of ninjutsu that even the leader of the clan recognizes.
However, there was something that bothered Tsubaki. A man, that she has never seen or even touched before. She would like to meet him, but the ironclad rule must be upheld…
What will she do?
