Nadeshiko Previous Leader


Former leader of the Nadeshiko Village. Decades ago she encountered Jiraiya who has entered her village to do "research" for his next novel. After he escaped she pursued him and challenged him to a duel for his hand in marriage. This match was however postponed, as neither party was making headway against the other. Jiraiya promised that their students instead should one day seek each other out and fight if the two never met again. This promise fell to her pupil Shizuka and Jiraiya's last pupil Naruto Uzumaki. She's presumed to be Shizuka's mother but is not confirmed neither named as such in the credits, instead she's named as "Previous Head of the village (先代里長)". Appears in episode 235.
