Plot

In 1942, it was business as usual in the Ninjutsu Academy as our heroes wade through their adventures, activities, money, food or playing.

Meanwhile in the previous year on December 7, the Imperial Japanese Navy begins its attack on Pearl Harbor. The US Pacific Fleet suffers severe damage in the surprise attack, and most of the defending airfields are obliterated before they are able to launch fighters to defend the harbor. US Army soldiers David Fox, Kevin Fox and William Fox manage to take off in P-40 fighter planes, and are able to shoot down several of the attacking planes. They later assist in the rescue of the crew of the capsized USS Oklahoma, but are too late to save the crew of the sinking USS Arizona.

The next morning, drill instructor Tommy Stone informed the three Foxes and their fellow soldiers about the Ninjutsu Academy, an academy that was founded by the headmaster Heiji Uzumasa Ookawa and is still active since near the end of the Muromachi period.

The next year, back in 1942, as Hemu-Hemu rings the school bell in alert and an air raid siren occurs, the United States Army show up raiding and destroying the Ninjutsu Academy with their specially modified B-25 Mitchell bombers in a surprise attack, shocking everyone inside it and making them storm out of the academy in panic.

With the Ninjutsu Academy gone, it's up to Rantarō, Kirimaru and Shinbei to escape the clutches from the dreaded United States Army and their bombers to get the academy back, with the help of Yuki, Tomomi, Shige and Hemu-Hemu. Former L.A. jazz singers Alina Sims, Erin Lewis and Heather Cunningham serve as their assistants, too.
