|奈良エンスイ Nara Ensui|
|Manga||Volume #55, Chapter #523|
|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #266|
|Appears in||Anime, Manga|
Ensui has black hair which he ties into a short, high-top ponytail. He also has a goatee and dark-green markings underneath his eyes — which gives him a somewhat lazy, or tired appearance. Attire-wise, he wears the standard outfit of the Konoha shinobi consisting of the standard flak jacket and uniform. He doesn't wear the Alliance's forehead protector, however.
Ensui seems to be very skilled with his clan's secret techniques being able to use the Shadow Imitation Technique to different degrees where he could freely allow a person to move while under the effects of the technique without having to move himself. He is also capable of using the Shadow Sewing Technique.
Shinobi World War Arc
Ensui was assigned to the Third Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces. His team-mate along with Santa Yamanaka were incorporated into Kakashi's battle strategy to take out a reincarnated Zabuza Momochi in order to lift the mist that obscured the battlefield. He used his Shadow Imitation Technique to merge his own shadow with Kakashi's while Santa took possession of their captain's body. He was supposed to then use Kakashi's shadow as an extension of the technique to stop Zabuza's movements and then hold him down once Kakashi's shadow had come into contact with Zabuza's in order for Maki to completely immobilise him. However, half way through the plan, Kakashi's attack was intercepted by Haku. After Zabuza cuts through Haku, Ensui told Santa that Kakashi only caught one enemy and immobilised Haku as he regenerated. When Kakashi successfully connected his shadow to Zabuza's, he immediately immobilised him as well.
In the anime, at the dawn of the second day of the war, Ensui assists Kakashi in restraining a bisected Jinin Akebino until Sai completed his sealing technique. Gari arrives to prevent Jinin's sealing and Rock Lee fights him off to defend the two. Debris from Gari's explosion injures Ensui and his hold on Jinin is released. After Sai successfully seals Jinin, Gari retreats and as Lee attempts to pursue, Ensui convinces him not to.
