Plot

Asuka, who returned home to take the exam at the order of Kiriya , returned to the " Hanzō National Academy " for the first time in a few months after completing her training from her grandfather Hanzo . I am pleased with the reunion of Ikaruga , senior Katsuragi , and junior Yagyu and Hibari . However, as soon as I returned to the academy, the days of rigorous training (classes) by Kiriya continued , I was worried that I could not summon the summoned beast because of the secret ninja training that I was not good at. A few days later, Asuka confesses her worries to Hanzo, but the creature she can summon for family reasons is the frog she is not good at. Asuka, who was told by Hanzo that this is also a trial of Shinobi, refuses at first, but Ikaruga finally overcomes the frog by attending the special training. One day, he is attacked by flames , poems , shadows , future , and spring flowers , which have higher fighting power than Ikaruga . The next day, Asuka and his friends were informed by Kiriya about the evil shinobi training institution " Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy " that was established in opposition to Hanzō National Academy, and they were involved in the school's conflict.
