Nintama Rantaro began broadcasting on the NHK network in 1993, and it is now one of their longest running animated series. The story of Nintama Rantaro is described as follows:

 

Rantaro, Kirimaru, and Shinbei are far from being excellent ninjas. As they embark on their training at the ninja school, they are joined by their tongue-in-cheek friends, ninja masters, and idol senior ninja trainees. All the unbelievable mistakes and confusion over the course of their training sets the base for loads of fun and entertainment.
