In the beginning of the New Link anime series, she ambush with her sister and capture all of Hanzo team except Asuka that they leave in a torn clothing, openly contradicting her ideal of Justice. When they lose the Shinobi Masters, and after Hanzo team was freed, they presented their excuses to them for their brutal methods.

Fubuki

At the end of the Shinobi Masters, Fubuki abandons them after they put doubt on her methods. They try to fight her once, ending up on a clear defeat, stripped, and try to soften Fubuki at the very end by both touching her hand, but end up knocked out by her Yoma nature.

Yumi

Background

Senkō was with her half-sister the archetype of the perfect middle school student, even having influence at the Student Council, and are admired by their schoolmates. Actually, they felt lost, without any goal, and found by some hasard on Kurokage's diary hidden in the library, in which they discover his manichean and murderous ideals, and adopt them. Following the diary's indications, they travel to the top of mountains to find Fubuki and present themselves as Kurokage's admirators, making that Fubuki take them as her henchwomen. From that point, they obey to Fubuki's instructions thinking that they were protecting and favoring Justice in the Shinobi world.

Story

Senkō starts in the New Link anime by ambushing the Hanzo team with her sister and ask them about Shinobi Justice. Hearing about the "Sword and Shield" idea, they show their contempt of such naive ideal and capture all members of the team except Asuka, which they leave in torn clothing by Fubuki's order to leave alive so she can tell  the terrible story of Shinobies.

They send arrows to all the other teams (Crimson Squad, Gessen, and Hebijo) to invite them to a free day at the baths, and present themselves once all of them finish an improvised PBS in the baths, inviting to a special shinobi tournament, the Shinobi Masters, and announcing that the winner will free the Hanzo team members, all kept as hostages. Only Hebijo, Gessen and the Overseers' festival, which were invited by Fubuki after a short fight with Kagura, join the tournament, the Crimson Squad having refused due to an incident with Homura and Asuka which left Homura injured at the wrist.

Once the Overseers and Hebijo are defeated, they face Yumi and Asuka as the final challenge, but end up defeated and stripped. When Fubuki declares war to all shinobies, they're abandoned there by her. Later, they lunch on Hanzo's roof and present their excuses to the Hanzo team, through the team is very sympathetic about it, and they both get groped by Katsuragi.

When Fubuki launch a Yoma invasion in the town, Senkō and her sister attack directly Fubuki and ask her explanations, but they get defeated. Feeling abandoned by everything, they get near a river and a cascade, remind their lives and try to jump in the water before Yumi finds them and grab their hands to show them her justice.

They are last seen at the end of the fight between Yumi and Fubuki, grabbing the latter's hand to correct her by showing Yumi's justice, but they get knocked out by Fubuki's Yoma nature and power.
