Manga Monday Ch.11 – Rappi Rangai (Ninja Girls)

It’s Manga Monday.  A weekly post highlighting a different series.  I’ll mostly do posts on completed or ongoing series that are regularly updated.  While I do not condone scanlations, please support the creator and licensing companies by purchasing the work where available.

This week’s manga is – Rappi Rangai (also known as Ninja Girls)

Summary (Mangainn.com):

This story takes place during the civil war in Japan. There is a mysterious boy with a short horn on his forehead. His life turns upside down after he saves wanted female ninja, who then tells him that she is his servant and he an emperor. Soon a few more girls appear in his life and the adventure begins. What will happen to him and what kind of weird and wonderful stories lie in front of the small group is for you to find out.

Hako’s Thoughts:

One of few manga I like that take place during the Warring States era of Japan, Rappi Rangai can easily be mistaken as just another fan-service series.  While the level of ladies in revealing outfits is high, the objective of the main character, Raizou, and his ninja bodyguards is more than enough to balance things out.  To revive his long lost clan, Raizou is forced find a princess to marry, or forever he would be shunned in society as a leper due to that horn on his head.  Raizou, beyond belief, actually takes this role seriously.  Most other main character archtypes would be too dumb or lustful to remember what the true objective is.  Additionally, he is kind-hearted enough to always consider the feelings of everyone else before his own.  We need more main characters like this kid.

Rappi Rangai can be found at your nearest book retailer or online, licensed under Kodansha Comics USA as Ninja Girls.
