Kagetora #1 by Akira Segami

The young ninja Kagetora has been given a great honor–to serve a renowned family of skilled martial artists. But on arrival, he’s handed a challenging assignment: teach the heir to the dynasty, the charming but clumsy Yuki, the deft moves of self-defense and combat.

And yet, Yuki’s inability to master the martial arts is not what makes this job so difficult for Kagetora. No, it is Yuki herself. Someday she will head her family dojo, and for a ninja like Kagetora to fall in love with his master is a betrayal of his duty, the ultimate dishonor, and strictly forbidden. Can Kagetora help Yuki overcome her ungainly nature . . . or will he be overcome by his growing feelings?  

There's a 30 page preview online at Del Rey Manga.  The cover makes it look like Kage Tora, but I guess I've been reading it wrong.  oops!

Anyway, it looks like a cute book, and the preview pages made me laugh a few times.  Like the teacher's "Just because he's a ninja, you must not bully him."  What's up with the creepy ninja monkey, though?? 

I opted against it last week because it's a Del Rey title and most of the other stuff that came out was from Viz.  Del Rey is more expensive than other manga so I tend not to be as impulsive when buying their books.  Hey, three bucks is three bucks.  But I guess I should have bought it – it looks worth it.
