Japan Has A Ninja Certification Test

On October 22, there will be an examination for certification in the Koga-ryu school of ninjutsu. I am not making this up. 

According to At Press, the certification test will be held at Zojo-ji, a Buddhist temple in Tokyo. The examination is thirty minutes long and covers your ninja knowledge of the Koga-ryu school.

Since the test is open to those in fifth grade and up, it probably isn't that hard. A score above sixty is passing, and you can get another ten points based on your ninja outfit or ability to throw shuriken. 


    Immediate fail here; I can see them and none are wearing blue.


    I've wanted to go to ninja school since I was 5. My dream might not be dead.

      Bujinkan Taijutsu is what you are looking for. Although the certified koryu schools dispute their lineage. Their Grandmaster before the current one was the real deal though. Toshitsugu Takamatsu. Badass mofo that dude.

    Look at that one guy in the middle. He clearly doesn't belong. I hope he passes and becomes the next Hokage!

    I am sort of a master of being a ninja, as the oldest of six I quickly became adept in the art of assassination via SBD. When I got to see them I would chill out and pretend to be preoccupied thinking and then as they walked past I would force them to the ground and capitalise on the months of eating cheap baked beans at my dad's house.

    I sometimes feel bad for them, but then I remember all the crap I had to put up with as a child from them and go back to honing my art of weaponizing cheap food.

      As the youngest I can definitely say that this tactic works. Only advantage I had was that I was quick, so if they screwed up trying to grab me I'd have a chance of getting away. Not a very big chance, but it gave me that little bit of hope.

    So theres a legit chuni exam. So what happens after they graduate?

      They go back to their 9 to 5 office jobs.

        After that they will receive a mission based from their rank
