SynopsisEdit

Four transfer students have come to a certain "girls' school."
... They are descendants of ninjas (= ninja girls) sent by the state power in order to punish evil!
They have been tasked to defeat evil ninjas who are disguised as students at the same school.
The eight members of Kobushi Factory will perform as the four ninja girls of justice (Hirose, Nomura, Hamaura, and Wada) VS the four ninja girls of evil (Fujii, Ogawa, Taguchi, Inoue).
These skilled, determined, and divided ninja girls will be guided by a strict instructor...
Ninja VS ninja! Until the direct confrontation, will the hearts of these ninja girls become one?!
Dressed as "ninja girls," Kobushi Factory presents to you a super ninja comedy!

TriviaEdit

  • This is the first Hello! Project theatrical production since Warera Jeanne ~Shoujo Seisen Kageki~ that is not by Engeki Joshibu.
  • JK is an acronym for joshi kousei (女子高生) meaning "high school girl".
  • A documentary on the making of the musical was broadcast on BS SKY PerfecTV! on February 26, 2017.[3]
  • Two of the songs included in the musical, "Yami ni Nukegake" and "Pitch Pichi Tomodachi" will be released as B-sides in Kobushi Factory's 4th single "Shalala! Yareru Hazu sa / Ee ja nai ka Ninja nai ka".
  • The ninja characters' last names likely refer to legendary ninjas who they are "descended" from:
  • In the film adaptation, the ninja girls of evil are instead normal high school girls possessed by the Ninja Oyajis, who have also taken their last names from the musical (Sarutobi, Sugitani, Yamaoka, and Sasayama).
