->''"The ninja world is at war... whatever."''

Miharu Rokujou has been living a life of indifference for as long as he can remember. The life of a [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent normal boy living a normal life]] [[IJustWantToBeNormal planning to own a normal restaurant]] doesn't offer much, but he'd rather have it that way.

!!Tropes:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: Present at Alya Academy [[spoiler:although it turns out they're all being manipulated, first by an adult, [[TheManBehindTheMan then]] by one of their own]].
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler: Yoite and Yukimi's parents]].
* ActionGirl: Raimei, as well as other various ninja girls and women.
* AllThereInTheManual: The guidebooks include some information that never made it into the manga, such as the reason Kouichi and Shijima's human forms resemble Akatsuki and Shinra, how Tobari and Hanabusa met, and the origin of Tobari's fear of vehicles.
* AmbiguousGender: Subverted. [[spoiler:the reader (and even most characters, apparently) start out believing that Yoite is male. Later it turns out that he's actually... [[{{Hermaphrodite}} intersex]], although it's strongly implied that, by the end of the series, he personally identifies as male. It doesn't really matter in the long run, though, and isn't gone into in much detail, only the readers now know another reason for his angst and identity issues.]]
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:Yukimi]]
* AngstySurvivingTwin: [[spoiler: Makoto, after Yukimi kills Itsuwari]].

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Tobari might qualify [Tobari is arguably one of the nicest characters in the series. He does his best to protect those he cares about and refuses to kill enemies. Hell, he's even seen patching up his enemies after fights in the Alya arc. [[spoiler:But...after a ten year silence on the past in which his loved ones are killed right in front of him, then finds out their murderer was actually Fuuma who was manipulating everyone all along, then to have Fuuma activate the Shinrabansho...Tobari, while bleeding to death himself, snaps and kills Fuuma by stabbing him through the neck and slicing through.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Raimei and Raikou at the end of chapter 69.
* BilingualBonus: When Raimei and Raikou fight for the first time, Gau is listening to Strauss’s “Unter Donner und Blitz", which is German for “Under Thunder and Lightning”. Incidentally, Raimei's name means "thunder", while Raikou's name means "lightning". And what happens "under" thunder and lightning is a rain shower...in other words, ''[[FridgeBrilliance Gau]]''.
* BishieSparkle: While Raikou is away from the house, Gau fantasizes about him; picturing him surrounded by [[LoveBubbles sparkles and roses]] while Gau blushes and wishes for his swift return.
* BittersweetEnding: The manga. Miharu finally [[spoiler: remembers Yoite again...but Yoite is still dead. After their brief reunion, Yoite leaves, presumably to go to heaven.]]

--> '''Raikou''': Lately, doesn't it feel like I've been the comic relief character...? I'm kind of reluctant about it...
* BrickJoke: On the cover flap of volume 5, the doodle accompanying the author's notes shows [[NoFourthWall Kouichi wondering if he'll get to be on a cover soon]]. (The cover of volume 5 shows Raikou and Gau, who were introduced much later than him.) The cover of volume 6 shows new character Shijima; on the cover flap, [[ButtMonkey Kouichi is depressed]] and a random bird is telling him "Maybe next time". He finally gets to be on the volume 7 cover.
* BridalCarry: [[HoYay Raikou carries]] [[ShipTease Gau like this once]].
* CastFromLifespan: The Kira technique uses Yoite's LifeEnergy. As a result, by the beginning of the series, he only has 1 or 2 months left to live.

* DownerEnding: The anime, not just in [[spoiler: Yoite dying]], but in that [[spoiler: Miharu NEVER ACTUALLY USES THE SHINRABANSHOU - whether to erase Yoite as he did in the manga or for another purpose.

Added DiffLines:

** The anime's conclusion, while in some ways a DownerEnding (see that trope's entry for why), also has elements of this. Miharu and Yoite both seem at peace with their respective fates, although [[spoiler: Miharu certainly isn't happy about Yoite dying.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WholePlotReference / ShoutOut: Raimei's RoaringRampageOfRevenge towards Raikou is very similar to the relationship between Sasuke and Itachi in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. The similarities increase with TheReveal that (''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' spoilers) [[spoiler: Raikou slaughtered the Shimizu clan as a result of their treason (like Itachi) and became a SilentScapegoat (like Itachi) so that Raimei's image of her family wouldn't be shattered]]. Ultimately, though, Raimei and Raikou's plotline has a different [[spoiler: read:happier]] ending than Sasuke and Itachi's.
