New Chapters On the Way! Ninjas Beware!

Good evening, readers!

I know that updates to this story have been rather sporadic over the past couple months. I do whole-heartedly apologize. However, having taken on way too much work at school, I've been really bogged down by a constant barrage of homework. However, I have some excellent news! Soon, the semester will be coming to an end and your favorite young ninja Taro will continue his journey and get on with his ninja mission!

Thank you for your patients and support. I would sincerely encourage you to take the time to add your email to the subscriber list (the box at the top on the right) so that any time I update the story that you will be sure to know about it right away. More so, you should even be able to read new chapters from your email itself! Though be sure to come back here and leave comments as well.

See you soon when we continue through the life of Taro the young ninja!

What is a Ninja?

There is a lot of misconception about what a ninja is.

A ninja is a weapon. A ninja is a warrior.

First appearing in writing as early as 4th century according to some history, though it is hard to place the beginning of the ninja, and most scholars agree that they emerged around the 7th-10th century. According to most Asian historians, the ninja first developed in opposition to the elite samurai during the Heian Dynasty (794-1185).

By the 15th century, the role of the ninja was primarily hired mercenary or espionage. By this time, there was already boundless myths about ninjas, calling them demons and giving them mystical powers which were widely believed to be true, but in all reality, ninjas were very trained in silence and stealth and could easily hide or slip away quickly and unnoticed in a way that would lead others to believe they were magical.

Our story presupposes a modern Japanese society where ninjas have managed to survive and continue traditional methods of teaching and hired by clients and used as weapons and tools of espionage and mercenary. Taro is one such ninja, growing up in a civilization of ninjas long-thought to be extinct. But when Taro begins his first ninja mission, his whole world gets turned upside down.
