Reception

Leroy Douresseaux compares the tone of the manga to Strawberry 100%, and feels that the manga is full of "comic violence that is brutal and bloody or innuendo defined by female ninja (kunoichi) in some state of undress."[13]

Davey C. Jones enjoyed the "voluptuous" character designs of the girls.[14]

Matthew Alexander found the character of the spirit tablet imbued with the protagonist's mother's spirit to be very funny,[15] and found the protagonist to be a "likeable character" who "cares more about the feelings of those around him than he does about his own wellbeing".[16]

Dan Polley felt the first volume had "potential", and that the secondary characters were intriguing.[17]

Joseph Luster, writing for Otaku USA, felt that the manga was in an awkward position: "too fan-servicey for some, and not enough for others".[18]

Ninja Girls volume 1 debuted sixth on the New York Times manga bestseller list for the week of August 23-29, 2009.[19] The following week, Ninja Girls volume 1 slipped to eighth position.[20]
