Shuriken School is a 26 episode animated series from Nickelodeon that originally aired from 2006 to 2007. The show is centered around a group of young ninjas in training in the mythical city of Tokyo. The show follows the adventures of Eizan Kaburagi, Jimmy B, and Okuni Dohan, who are all students in the Shuriken School.

Eizan Kaburagi is the main character of the show. He is a ninja in training and the son of a ninja master, who is also the school principal. Eizan is a bit of a rebel and often breaks the rules, but he is also very talented and always manages to get out of trouble. Jimmy B is Eizan's best friend, and he is also a ninja in training. He comes from a family of professional wrestlers, and he is always trying to prove how tough he is. Okuni Dohan is the only girl in the group, and she is also a ninja in training. She is very calm and level-headed, and she often tries to mediate between Eizan and Jimmy B when they get into arguments.

One of the most interesting things about Shuriken School is that the students are all from different parts of the world, which gives the show a very diverse feel. There is a French ninja named Jacques Le Blanc, an Indian ninja named Ami Saeki, a Brazilian ninja named Marcos Gonzalez, and a Japanese ninja named Nobunaga. Each of these characters brings their own unique personality and skills to the show.

The show is very action-packed, with lots of martial arts fighting and ninja skills. The students are always undertaking dangerous missions, and they use their skills and training to overcome the obstacles they face. One of the recurring themes of the show is the importance of teamwork. The students often have to work together to complete their missions, and they learn the value of trust and communication.

Another recurring theme of the show is the importance of learning from your mistakes. The students are not perfect, and they make plenty of mistakes along the way. But they always learn from their mistakes and use their experiences to become better ninjas. This is a great lesson for kids, as it encourages them to take risks and try new things, even if they are not always successful.

The animation in Shuriken School is top-notch. The characters are all very well-designed, with unique personalities and appearances. The backgrounds are also very detailed, and they really help to bring the city of Tokyo to life. The fight scenes are expertly choreographed, with lots of fast-paced action and impressive martial arts moves. Overall, the animation in Shuriken School is one of its strongest features.

The voice acting in Shuriken School is also very good. The main voice actors are Jessica DiCicco as Eizan, Charlie Adler as Jimmy B, and Kimberly Brooks as Okuni. They all do a great job of bringing their characters to life, and they have good chemistry with each other. There are also some notable guest stars in the show, including Maurice LaMarche and Nathan Kress.

One thing to note about Shuriken School is that it is a relatively short-lived show. It only ran for one season, and it has not been continued since then. However, the show has a cult following, and it is still very popular among fans of the martial arts and ninja genres. If you are looking for a fun and action-packed animated series that encourages teamwork and learning from your mistakes, then Shuriken School is definitely worth checking out.

Shuriken School is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on August 28, 2006.
