Continuing with the Nagasarete Airantou tributes, the next girl up is Mikoto's older sister Shinobu. :-)
(These are from Nagasarete Airantou episode 18. Once a gain a massive thank you Why_Zee_Ex for sending in the material for these tributes)
Why Zee Ex Commentary:
Shinobu is more of a swordsman (swordswoman? swordsperson?) than a kunoichi, despite being in Mikoto's ninja family. She's not very good at it, and is rather clumsy. She can trip over nothing and like Suzu is rather inexperienced with men. She's introduced near the end, a crazy 6 episodes before the finale. She develops a "crush" on Ikuto, but doesn't realize what it means. Shinobu is pretty hot, just saying.
Some additional trivia involving Shinobu is that her Ninja abilities allow her to create Naruto like shadow clones of herself. She's not as skilled at that technique as he is though. She's also resistant to poisons thanks to her mother poisoning her food regularly to build up her immunity. She really seems like a fun character. :-)
Ok everyone...one last Nagasarete Airantou tribute left to go...I'll see you tomorrow. ^_^
