Synopsis:
When Jean and Nadia (Secret of Blue Water) don’t have enough money to pay for gas, he has to leave her behind as collateral while he goes off to try and make some money. The gas attendant, Naruto, has other ideas about how she can make restitution, which involves using her body for his pleasure. All hopes rest on Jean’s shoulders, but in order for him to make the money to pay his bill, he’s going to have to service some foreign ladies (Sakura + others from Naruto). Will he be able to break free from his new job, or will he succumb to the pleasure and leave Nadia in Naruto’s clutches?   

Review:
Ninja Love is the most recent of a string of amateur hentai titles by MMG, featuring well known characters in compromising positions.  It seems these productions are the only way we can get to see our favorite characters in sexual situations, but it begs the question; it is really worth it with such shoddy animation, art, voice acting, and just about every other aspect inherent in their releases? That really depends on just how much you dig the characters involved.       
 
This time around we are treated to characters from a number of various anime series. Nadia and Jean from Nadia: Secret of the Blue Water, Naruto and company from, you guessed it, Naruto, and a handful of other characters from various other anime series. While I have never really seen Naruto, I understand making a film which revolves around characters from the most popular anime property out right now. That makes sense, use their popularity to increase sales. What I don’t quite get is why Nadia and Jean take center stage in yet another MMG release (the first being Mania - Secret of Green Tentacle). Now don’t get me wrong, I love Nadia, but the series has been out in the US for over 6 years now and was never terribly popular even when it was first released. Why they didn’t chose to use a more recent, and better known set of character to counterbalance the Naruto cast I’m not too sure, but I will say someone at MMG must really love Nadia.     
 
Here we have the most basic of premises, with Nadia being a captive of Naruto until Jean can earn 500 yen (yes $5.00) he owes for gas. So Naruto takes some enjoyment from the company of Nadia while Jean goes off to acquire some money. He ends up working as a prostitute, basically, getting paid to show foreign women a good time. That would be the basic extent of the storyline, with a number of different characters coming in and out of the picture throughout the thirty minute runtime. I wish I could say it was a wonderful experience, but even Nadia couldn’t save this from being another debacle. I’m all for making hentai titles using characters from anime series, but the quality isn’t there. The animation is just awful, focusing on one animated scene while the camera pans around zooming in and out of focusing on their faces to their nether regions. Now the characters do look like who they’re supposed to, and every now and again they will look pretty good, but overall they are disjointed, scraggly, and uneven. Combined together, it makes all the sex scenes, in spite of being fully explicit, uninteresting. And the icing on the cake is that the dub, which is the only language track, is so utterly terrible from the script to the performances, that it is actually pretty damn funny. When you can hear it that is, because the sound levels seem to randomly vary throughout the episode.         
      
There is something wonderful about getting to see characters for other anime series getting thrown into the hentai arena, an event which rarely happens with animated works. It would be nice if that didn’t come with a really awful story and laughable technical aspects. I’ll give MMG props for what they’re trying to do here, just not for what they’re achieving.     

Miscellaneous:
It should be noted that the DVD also comes with about an hour’s worth of additional scenes featuring a whole slew of different characters from a plethora of anime titles. They still carry the same problems, but it’s certainly a nice little bonus.
