Dec 4, 2011: Yamauchi is a ninja master from Japan who fled enemies both ninja and samurai to teach at a martial arts school in Greece. In the prologue, he arrives in a village being sacked by barbarians, in time only to rescue a baby girl from the fate of her village. Jump forward 15 years and the story begins with Sasha a young girl, certain of herself and her skills as a ninja. She doesn’t like the academic classes at her school—in particular, Greek and various "dead languages". Oddly, she seems to think everyone speaks English.
And so the story begins. The writing’s not bad, but the wish-fulfilment aspect is palpable, as is the sense that the story exists entirely out of time. Apparently, at 12 chapters, the story is already complete. Probably worth a look to fans of Naruto. Probably not for anyone else.
