▍Shinobi no Ittoki Anime Synopsis
Ninjas do not exist. At least, that’s what we believe…because if ninjas ever existed, they would not reveal themselves to us. That is why ninjas “ostensibly” do not exist.
Ittoki Sakuraba is an ordinary boy who, like many, believes that ninjas do not exist. He was promised a normal, happy, and glorious life, until one day, someone claiming to be of the Kouga clan suddenly attempts to take his life. Why was he targeted? It was because he was the 19th legitimate successor to the venerable Iga clan of ninjas!
The Iga and Kouga clans have long been at odds with each other, and for now, the only way to survive… was to become a ninja himself! Thus, he throws himself into the unknown world of the ninja. He learns, fights, and faces hardships to become a full-fledged ninja.
However, this is only the beginning of the harsh destiny…
