Plot

Iro, an exuberant young ninja, has one big dream: to become THE Chop Chop Ninja. There is no higher achievement for a ninja! Is he ready for it? Not even close. Does he want it? More than anyone. Will getting there be fun? Absolutely! Along with his three friends and classmates at the Academy, Jo, Neeko and Tetsuo, Iro protects his island home from a steady onslaught of treacherous and not so treacherous villains, and protects the mysterious Medallion from the clutches of Magic Master, in hopes of proving that he deserves the legendary title of CHOP CHOP NINJA.
