I've finished "Shuriken and Pleats Vol. 1" by Matsuri Hino.
When the master she has sworn to protect is killed, Mikage Kirio, a skilled ninja, travels to Japan to start a new, peaceful life for herself. But as soon as she arrives, she finds herself fighting to protect the life of Mahito Wakashimatsu, a man who is under attack by a band of ninja. From that time on, Mikage is drawn deeper into the machinations of his powerful family.

I really like the story line and it was a fresh breath of air since it wasn't the norm!
Mikage was a cool heroine and it was awesome that she is a female ninja. She really is a good one and dedicated to her job of taking care of her master.
LOL! I found it quite funny that she fell in love with her master who is twice her age!
Mahito is hilarious because he doesn't listen to Mikage and he would be a great love match!
The artwork is beautifully illustrated and I'm really glad the male characters don't look alike that you couldn't tell them apart!
