In Sengoku period Japan an 8-year-old boy named Rantaro is born into a small-time ninja family. Following through on his parents’ expectation that he will also become a ninja, he’s enrolled at a special school to learn the art of ninjutsu. However, he often gets distracted from his studies by two equally clumsy friends, Shinbee and Kirimaru. When a fourth year student named Takamaru Saito—the son of a barber and member of a clan of assassins—appears, it becomes necessary for Rantaro to rise up to save a friend.
