50% of ninjutsu is useless LARPing, 30% is bad judo w/ hits, 10% is bad judo w/ bad kickboxing, 5% is bad judo w/ decent kickboxing, and the remaining 5% is t3h d34dly r34l.
So why not do Judo?
But if, knowing all this, she still wishes to pursue Ninjutsu and finds one of the better schools, then... what can you do? If she eventually decides to switch, fine. If she doesn't, also fine.

I had quite a few girls in my kendo class that dressed like anime characters. Not easy with bogu, the amount of sweating and constant screaming in the class...but they were LARPing in class. 2 of them were pretty damn good though.
I guess you're going to have to find something that appeals to that side of your friend that will hopefully be effective as well. Maybe in 6 months you can cross train with her, show her what you do and she might move over to Judo or BJJ etc.

I think that's a good idea, if you have explained your position and she wants to do it anyway let her. Then suggest a roll after she's been at it for a few months. Don't go crazy on her, I'm assuming you a man so you have the deck stacked in your favor so just use a few easy takdowns and submissions and it should become clear that 50 variations of the wristlock isn't going to help much against functional grappling.

Or better yet, you let her Nin-LARP while ALSO teaching her teh ‹ber BJJ. Then she can be teh r347 Kunoichi that can also roll with the super functional grappling. Teach her grappling against resistance, but secretly, in true ninja fashion. Then she will take over the Bujinkan in the U.S. and maybe the world!!! Booh-HAHAHAAHAHA!!!

Anyway, the advice: Let her become a ninjer. Give her a couple of months till she gets her brown belt, then set some idiot kid with no training on her. Once her ass has been decisively kicked, point her to an MT or BJJ place and let nature take its course.
On a serious note, how much info do you have on her ninjering establishment?

That is the sweetest thing. Who woulda thunk that Hojojutsu would feel so good?
