The first episode won me over because Miharu was so moe. Then after that it wavered between boring Naruto-rip off to mildly interesting and gay.
When Raikou showed up, I was this close to dropping it and writing it off as a complete Naruto rip, but I was surprised and thankful Raikou ended up being nothing like Itachi and Raimei not being like Sasuke. Thobari probably has become the worst character in the show though. They're all horrible ninjas. Kouichi seems like the only one who takes their situation half seriously and actually kills because it's necessary AND THEY'RE FUCKING NINJAS.
Though the last three episodes, (12, 13 & 14) have probably been the best so far. Only because the Kairoushu plus Miharu are the best things in this stupid anime. And the saturation needs to be turned waaaaaaaaaaaaay down.
