I really enjoyed this drama. The summary is misleading, but "Sana is a ninja that has arrived in present day Japan. She now follows Masako Murata as her new boss and attempts to eradicate evil that is rampant in modern society." describes the drama well enough.

The short length of a jdrama usually forces the writers to focus on either the story or the characters, which means the other part is often underdeveloped. Tenchuu managed to balance both parts, which meant I connected with the characters on an emotional level as they went through the events of the story. The acting was good, but it didn't amaze me. Nevertheless, it was good enough for me to keep watching.

Overall I did enjoy the drama and would watch a season 2 if it was released

Finally finished this series and well worth the wait. This jdrama is about a time travelled female ninja partnered with granny, teacher, thief & cross dressing bar keep to fight the fights the police ignore. Each episode deals with the ugly side of human nature capitalizing on the glorious 7 sins, all the while Sana coming to grip with new existence in the modern world with humans still as ugly as in her original era. If you like jdrama, ninjas, no romance, and solid human interest, this one is for you. You felt good knowing the really evil folks get cans of whoop a%* from a female warrior & grandma. Hope they make Tenchu 2.
