Plot Summary: Kajika is a female ninja who will soon inherit her grandfather's dojo. A ninja clan known as Hayato is after the family's secret weapon, so she must keep her identity secret for her own safety. One day, she saves a child from a moving truck. Fujisaki, the class president who Kajika has a crush on, tells her that while being sporty is fine, it's good to be feminine. So, Kajika tries to become more girly, despite her friend Yuuga's reassurances that she's fine as she is.
