A group of kunoichi (female ninjas) lives deep in the remote mountains. These kunoichi are from the Akane clan and they live with one ironclad rule – no contact with men.

The official website has released the spoiler stills and synopsis of "In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki" Episode 1. The kunoichi stay together harmoniously and train themselves in the forests.

Two ninjas, Sazanka and Asagao of Team Dog, suddenly go missing. The others fear men have something to do with their disappearance. The leader tells the kunoichi that they should not underestimate men as they are strong and cruel.

Kunoichi Tsubaki of Akane Class says she will return with Asagao and Sazanka. Tsubaki is a master of ninjutsu and even the leader of the clan is aware of her skills.

However, lately, Tsubaki is getting this urge to learn more about boys. And whenever she thinks about boys, her heart starts racing. She is unable to describe this warm feeling in her chest.

"Deep in the remote mountains, a group of kunoichi (female ninjas) have lived. The name of the group is the Akane clan. The unique Kunoichi are divided into several teams, and they polish their skills through friendly rivalry. And, the Akane clan has an ironclad rule that must not be broken - No contact with men," read the official series synopsis, according to Crunchyroll.

"Tsubaki, an apprentice kunoichi, is the leader of the Akane clan's Dog Team and a master of ninjutsu that even the leader of the clan recognizes. She is the most trusted person in the group. However, there is one thing that Tsubaki can't stop thinking about. It's 'men' that she has never seen or touched before. I want to meet him once. The more she thinks about it, the more the tingling in her chest would not stop. What should I do with this feeling?" it continued.

"In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki" Episode 1 is scheduled to release this Saturday. Fans in the U.S. can watch the episode online on Crunchyroll. The episode will stream in Japanese with English subtitles.
