The Prajñā Group (般若衆, Hannyashū; English TV "Hannya Black‎‎ Ops") is a regiment of the Anbu of the Land of Woods.

History Edit

In the anime, about six years after the Nine-Tails' Attack on Konoha, the village moved for a potential alliance with the Land of Woods, agreeing to trade special scrolls as a sign of trust. The Prajñā Group was assigned to go to the meeting point. Ultimately, the Prajñā Group betrayed the Konona-nin, attempted to kill them after receiving the enemy's scroll. Their attempt was thwarted by a Konoha Anbu team appointed by Danzō Shimura of Root and all but annihilating the Prajñā Group.[1] Nine years later, on his way to the Kage Summit, the remnants of this group came out for revenge on Danzō. The seventeen who tried to assassinate the elder were swiftly killed by him.

In the manga, they fought with extremely long kunai that lacked rings at the end. In the anime, they were shown using Earth Release to drop massive chunks of rock at their opponents.[1]
