You’d be forgiven for thinking that Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja was based on some obscure anime property. Hell, it looks it, from its pink-haired heroine with eyes the size of baseballs to its light-hearted sense of humor - and you can bet the publishers are betting on that assumption to sell the game. But, to its credit, it’s an original property chock full of quirky characters, ridiculous situations, and a pretty solid combat system.
While traveling with her posse, presumably looking for a little freelance ninja work, Izuna’s zest for life accidentally earns her a curse from some irritable deities. Hey - could happen to anyone. But goodness, things go topsy-turvy for her ilk and the other villagers. Feelings are hurt, neuroses develop, cats and dogs move in together - mass hysteria.
