Hawaii. Then Oregon, Washington, and California. Hmm. The western bank, as it were. Perhaps because of proximity to Japan? Or having Japanese immigrants, aka latent ninjas-in-training, amongst us?

StateStats. A nifty website that shows popularity of search queries by state, and then also correlates that popularity with other state statistics, demographic and otherwise. So, one can see that there is a a positive but weak correlation with ninja searches and states with violent crime.

It also rates fairly low in South Dakota, which, even more surprising, may be the horniest state in the union. Next to Mississipi.
