It's good to start of the new year on the right foot and I can't think of any lovelier feet than the beautiful kunoichi Ino Yamanaka so my first official tribute of the new year is dedicated to her. ^_^ Enjoy guys. :-)
And a couple of animations...
A higher quality version is available here.
Higher quality animation here.
(These are a combination of webfinds and caps from various episodes of Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. The foot tapping scene is from episode 239. Massive Massive Massive thank yous to the Legendary Master of Sole Shots Match25 for tipping me off to to this scene.)
More of Ino's feet can be found in these previous tributes to her here:
When Match showed me the foot tapping scene...I was really celebrating. :-D This marks the first time that we got to see a close up of Ino's bare feet in the series. I could probably stare at Ino's feet all day long. ^_^; Just in case you guys are curious for the animations I used a picasion gif animator to create the ones on the site. I also used the more sophisticated animator art software gimp to create the higher quality photobuckets versions. ^_^
I think that most veteran visitors to this site already know that Ino is my favorite anime girl. She's a great character; beautiful, a strong ninja with a fun personality. Sure, Ino can seem to be a little bit petty sometimes seeming to care a lot about personal appearances and bossing her teammates and friends around but it just adds to her charm. (I think she would probably be a high maintenance type of girlfriend probably making her boyfriend give her foot rubs and pedicures.) She does have a really good heart though befriending a much shyer Sakura when they were younger and defending her from being bullied. She also really looks out for her teammates (Shikamaru and Choiji) and the three of them are probably the tightest bonded team in the series. Ino's specialty jitsus are mental attacks where she takes control of an opponent's body. She also known for her energy and in the videogame fighting adaptation of the series possesses a really nasty 16 hit combo attack and scissor throw. She also works in her family's flower shop and has a really great knowledge of plants and flowers and learns medical techniques from Tsunade. (Boy this girl really does a lot. ^_^;) A great character and really hot too, Ino sadly doesn't get nearly enough screentime in the series but she manages to steal any scene that she is in. She totally rocks. ^_^
:-D Ok...so what's coming up next...I think I have a lot of catching up to do. There's definitely a lot of material to post (the Chun Li tribute among them). In addition to tributes, I'm also working on some material for writing.com too. I definitely want to do a new series of spotlights in the near future. ^_^I'm also working on updating the site too giving it a design overhaul as well as some new features. ^_^ Ah...so much to do...so little time. ^_^ Anyway, more to come soon. :-D
Until next time everyone. ^_^
