Nostalgic. Yes. Melodramatic. A little. Yet, admittedly, Honey and Clover reached down my throat and strummed my nostalgic, nay chick-flick, vein. Yes, I too have been overrun by the forces of Honey and Clover. I too want to know what ultimately happens to Takemoto, Mayama Morita, Hagu, and Ayumi.

Although I have reviewed these anime titles in the past, the release of their box sets compels me to toss around a few words. Surely, as the heading suggests – and, again, the title of my new book –, whose day isn’t inundated with girls, guns, beasts, and even a few lacking the social skills?

The ninja is by no means new to the anime scene. All powerful, world saving high school students, for that matter, are also pervasive; though such plot-consuming, pubescent power is now so ubiquitous that it’s about as sexy as a white dress at a wedding. Be that as it may, the combination of the two in Nabari strikes a surprisingly good tune.
