Characters

  • Eizan Kaburagi is an only child, 10 years old, raised in an working-class family from Tokirohama. Eizan is intelligent, hardworking, and eager to learn. His sole aim since childhood has been to become a ninja and to avoid selling rice balls. His signature weapon is a green plastic ruler. He is clumsy, as shown in the episode "Phantom of the Kabuki".
  • Jimmy B. comes from a comfortable New York family, but pretends to be much more streetwise than his true origins. He spent all his time with his rap gang, developing a real talent for break-dancing. His parents, perplexed and fed up with their neighbors' comments, sent him to Tokirohama to stay with his aunt and uncle. Before coming to Shuriken, he went to Katana school, Shuriken's rival school, but was kicked out after a week. His weapon is a skateboard.
  • Okuni Dohan is the sole female member of the main group, and the most well-studied of them. She frequently cites examples from important lessons, and possesses great deductive skills and origami talent. There is also hinted rivalry between Okuni and Ami. Her primary weapon of choice is a jumprope.
