					One of the more popular
characters in Ninja High
School is the ninja femme
fatale, ICHI KUN ICHINO-
HEI. Originally called Itchy
Koo, she has proven to be
one of the more interesting
characters to draw.

If you have some of the ear-
lier editions of How to Draw
Manga, you’ve learned the
basic body types and how to
construct them.




                  Ichi can be classified
                  as an “average female
                  anime type” body. The
                  main thing is the sailor
                  suit she wears. That is
                  her trademark.
                                  Ichi’s ninja outfit is not the traditional loose
                                  garb of a ninja, but a skintight number with
                                  flowing sashes. Not exactly regulation ninja
                                  clothing, but then, she isn’t an ordinary ninja.




Ichi’s sister, Hitomi, wears a long
skirt, dark navy blue in color, for a
uniform. This is actually more in line
with what real Japanese schoolgirls
wear.
               Ichi’s skirt cones
               down to her knees
               and is pleated. The
               best way to draw
               the pleats is to fol-
               low the flow of the
               dress.




                                       The shirt is a pullover with
                                       no buttons.


                                           Ichi’s regulation
                                           school shoes.
