Derek Fallon has expanded his taste in cartoons to the world of manga and
anime. Together with his friends Carly, Matt, and Umberto, Derek has fun
learning about all the cool aspects of ninja culture. When someone starts
vandalizing their school with graffiti of a mischievous troll-like figure,
these ninjas-in-training are convinced they’ll be able to crack the case. But
it turns out that being a ninja is a lot more work than they thought, and this
adventure brings about new opportunities for Derek to embarrass himself. For
once, can he be the hero that saves the day?
