What is In The Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki About?
In The Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki is a comedy series that revolves around the Akane Clan, a clan of female ninjas or kunoichis who are not allowed to have contact with men, especially from the outer world. The code of the clan forbids interacting with men as they are said to be “dangerous creatures”.
Kunoichi Tsubaki is the head of the “Dog Clan” and is considered an excellent trainee. Being the exemplary student she is, Tsubaki is also surrounded by many young girls who will begin their training someday. She excels in the ways of the clan but seems to have a secret she keeps. Tsubaki has a strange reaction at the mention of boys and hides it from the rest of the clan. After setting out on a mission, Tsubaki ends up in a confrontation with a man she has never seen before, and the antics of her heart kick in yet again.
The rock band The Peggies will be performing the opening theme for the anime titled ‘Highlight – Highlight’. The ending theme titled Akane-Gumi Katsudo Nisshi Inuhan is a rather exciting venture. Aniplex has invited artists and composers to come up with different versions of the song and has announced a prize for the winners!
