First off, let me explain that this is a gag humor type of anime and it is never supposed to be taken seriously. **STORY** ****This anime does not follow a specific plot throughout and has different plots per episode. Each episode (24 minutes) is split in half. There are two different story plots in each episode, making each story arc 12 minutes each. I think this idea is great as it doesn't make the show so small and actually expands the anime. I think this idea was genius because it has enough content for a 24 episode anime. The humor in this anime is gag, little humor... In the first 5 minutes. After that, it takes a turn for crude kind of humor and it really has a positive impact on the story and the anime itself. I found myself laughing multiple times on each and every episode. By the way, the ending was highly satisfying. This section gets a **9/10** due to the rare feeling of worthless plot arcs (it only happened once to me). <strong>ANIMATION </strong> ****This anime has mediocre animation and is the only thing about the anime that I did not enjoy too much. My thoughts on it are biased, as I despise older anime. So I give it a **7/10** because some of the dislike for it is only because of my biased opinion on older anime. **SOUND** ****The opening and ending song are pretty memorable and deserve praise for being able to fit the gag type of anime this is. The dub is what I really wanted to discuss in this review. I don't like dubs of anime, but this dub is amazing and actually makes the humor alot more hilarious. In the first episode, it is a bit awkward and kind of bad, but trust me when I say the dub gets alot better past episode one. I give this section a **9/10** because of the episode one dub kind of turning me off at some point. **CHARACTER** The characters are not developed too much, and I felt the relationship between Shinobu and Kaede was kind of rushed. However, the characters are what really make the show humorous so I give it an **8/10**. **ENJOYMENT** ****Despite its slight flaws, I loved this anime and it made me laugh more than any other anime I have ever seen. Other people may not appreciate or enjoy the humor, and that's okay, but I personally loved it. It heavily improved the comedy genre in my mind and this is an anime that any comedy fan must watch in their lifetime. Watch the dub! **10/10**. **OVERALL** ****This anime really falls in animation and character development, but it revives itself with the humor and overall enjoyment and happiness this anime can give you. I give Ninja Nonsense (2x2=Shinobuden) a **9/10**.
Wakamoto Norio at his finest as Onsokumaru. Don't expect much story - it's all about the gags and weirdness.
