Fanfic / How To Hire a Ninja Maid

Go To

How To Hire a Ninja Maid is the brainchild of Liangnui and entirely too many seasons of Naruto. Originally conceived more as a series of oneshots than as a coherent story, it's essentially designed to answer one question: "What would Yu-Gi-Oh! have been like if Mokuba had actually had a competent bodyguard?" Answer: A lot more surreal than it already was.

After Mokuba's been kidnapped one too many times, Seto decides that something has to change. So, using the suggestions of his recently-rescued younger brother (courtesy of Yugi, of course), Seto decides to get a new bodyguard with entirely different criteria. The candidate must be strong, smart, experienced, and...willing to dress up as the family maid?


What follows is a madcap adventure more in line with what a universe running on card games and crack should really look like—otherwise known as a complete and utter farce. Join Mokuba (the world's only dedicated Seto Kaiba fanboy), Seto (also known as the richest sixteen-year-old ex-psycho supergenius ever), and their newest hires, the deadly ninja Sonozaki Kotone/Akiko (who has all the personality of a brick) and her sister Houjou Setsuna (the resident crazy engineering student and yaoi fangirl) on their journey to thwart kidnappers, ancient Egyptian laser beams, and the starfish-haired Chosen One himself.

Because to do otherwise would be boring.

The story is best described as Troperiffic at best and Trope Overdosed at worst. And strangely funny.
