The second [[Animal Path]] of the [[Six Paths of Pain]] belonged to a young woman who, in the anime, was named {{translation|'''Ajisai'''|アジサイ|Ajisai}}. In the anime, Ajisai was a kunoichi of [[Amegakure]] and a team-mate of [[Suiren]] and [[Fuyō]].

== Background ==
  +
In the anime, during the start of Amegakure's civil war, Ajisai was one of many to become left in awe hearing about "[[Pain]]"'s power from "[[Konan|Lady Angel]]", and their commitment to their goals of bringing peace and prosperity to the world for all villages by teaching them of hardship and pain.<ref name="NS405">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 405</ref>

== Personality ==
  +
While alive, in the anime, Ajisai was a very solemn and stoic person. She rarely talked more than she needed to and was very committed to her mission. A strong supporter and believer of Pain and Konan's views of the world and their plans to change it, Ajisai looked to them with unwavering trust and faith. To which end, Ajisai had noticeable disdain to the Five Great Shinobi Countries, blaming them for the hardships of smaller nations because of the wars that they dragged others into. Despite this, Ajisai is open-minded, learning that the structure of the Five Great Shinobi Countries does not define each individual that comes from them, as seen from Ajisai developing respect for Tenten.

During Amegakure's reformation following the civil war ending, Konan gathered a group of genin to participate in the upcoming [[Chūnin Exams]] that was being held in [[Konohagakure]] and [[Sunagakure]]. As Konan instructed, they were all to keep quiet of [[Hanzō]]'s demise and during the exam, Ajisai and her team-mates were to gather as much intel as possible about shinobi with a especially high amount of chakra in the possibility they were a [[jinchūriki]] and report back to the village.<ref name="NS404">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 404</ref>

On the second day of the exam, Ajisai's team encountered [[Team Komugi]] and fled after they realised a jinchūriki wasn't amongst their team.

Ajisai refused "charity" from one of the [[Five Great Shinobi Countries]], instead summoning her own water.

Along the way, while Tenten tried to be friendly, Ajisai simply noted how ignorant the larger nations were of the struggles that Amegakure and other smaller villages have to go through. Tenten noted that it would be hard to understand a village like Amegakure with its exceedingly secretive nature. Soon, they discovered that the ruins were home to a colony of giant ants. Ajisai states that she wants to capture and tame one of the giant ants for later summoning use. As the duo tried to reach the surface, they found themselves unable to go further because of rubble and sand blocking the path. With the giant ants still coming for them, Ajisai summoned her giant panda to stall them. She then began using her sealing technique to remove as much of the sand debris as possible. Unable to finish the job due to exhausting, she encouraged Tenten to do it. Determined to make her training show results, Tenten unsealed a vast amount of water to forcibly wash away the obstacle. Once on the surface and reunited with their respective team-mates, they agreed not to continue fighting and instead promised to meet each other again in the third phase.<ref name="NS405" />

The second Animal Path of the Six Paths of Pain belonged to a young woman who, in the anime, was named Ajisai (アジサイ, Ajisai). In the anime, Ajisai was a kunoichi of Amegakure and a team-mate of Suiren and Fuyō.

Background Edit

In the anime, during the start of Amegakure's civil war, Ajisai was one of many to become left in awe hearing about "Pain"'s power from "Lady Angel", and their commitment to their goals of bringing peace and prosperity to the world for all villages by teaching them of hardship and pain.[1]

While alive, in the anime, Ajisai was a very solemn and stoic person. She rarely talked more than she needed to and was very committed to her mission. A strong supporter and believer of Pain and Konan's views of the world and their plans to change it, Ajisai looked to them with unwavering trust and faith. To which end, Ajisai had noticeable disdain to the Five Great Shinobi Countries, blaming them for the hardships of smaller nations because of the wars that they dragged others into. Despite this, Ajisai is open-minded, learning that the structure of the Five Great Shinobi Countries does not define each individual that comes from them, as seen from Ajisai developing respect for Tenten.

Its hair is dyed orange and tied together in a sort of onion-like bun at the top of the head, with spikes of hair protruding out of it.

Ajisai had could use the Summoning Technique to summon a strong defensive gate that could block and withstand taijutsu attacks or a giant panda to aid her in battle.

Konan and Ajisai

Konan tasking Ajisai to find a jinchūriki during the exams.

During Amegakure's reformation following the civil war ending, Konan gathered a group of genin to participate in the upcoming Chūnin Exams that was being held in Konohagakure and Sunagakure. As Konan instructed, they were all to keep quiet of Hanzō's demise and during the exam, Ajisai and her team-mates were to gather as much intel as possible about shinobi with a especially high amount of chakra in the possibility they were a jinchūriki and report back to the village.[2]

When arriving at Konohagakure for the first exam, Ajisai and her team-mates were randomly split into different rooms, with her being placed in room 3. Shikamaru Nara as the first exam proctor explained the goal of the written test.[3] Her team ultimately passed the first round since their combined score equalled 100 points as it was supposed to, and by leaving the bonus question unanswered. However, a preliminary round was issued to lessen the many participants there were. The preliminary round involved a race to Sunagakure where only the first 30 teams to arrive at the destination would qualify for the second phase.[4] Ultimately, her team were among the first 30 teams to make it to the Demon Desert.[5]

On the second day of the exam, Ajisai's team encountered Team Komugi and fled after they realised a jinchūriki wasn't amongst their team. The following day in the exam grounds, Ajisai and her team continued looking for shinobi of high chakra levels as ordered and eventually came across Team Guy.

As Tenten recovered and went to check on Ajisai, the Ame-nin feigned unconsciousness, waiting for Tenten to get close enough to strike.[2] Tenten, however, calmly asked Ajisai to put her weapon away and offered her some water. Ajisai refused "charity" from one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries, instead summoning her own water. While making her dislike of later nations known, Ajisai agreed to a truce and work with Tenten to escape the ruins.

Once on the surface and reunited with their respective team-mates, they agreed not to continue fighting and instead promised to meet each other again in the third phase.[1]

Legacy Edit

Sometime later, after Ajisai's death, her corpse among others were later delivered to the highest tower in Amegakure by Ryūsui and Yūdachi, where Konan was waiting. Following Pain's fight with Jiraiya, Pain used her corpse to become his new Animal Path.

In the anime, after Pain tracked down the Six-Tails' jinchūriki, she along with the other paths killed Tsurugi and the hunter-nin's he was with. Afterwards, she and the other paths confronted Utakata where he transformed into his Version 2 form. As the fight began, she summoned her chameleon to restrict the jinchūriki. After her summon is defeated, she collected the Human Path, after he is killed and retreated. After the six paths of pain successfully capture Utakata, the Akatsuki extracted the Six-Tails from him.

-Giant Centipede-

The second Animal Path summoning centipedes during the invasion.

She is seen as she approached Konoha, as Pain was getting ready to retrieve the Nine-Tails' jinchūriki, Naruto Uzumaki. On the outskirts of the village, the Animal Path is launched through the village's barrier by the Asura Path. As one of the Paths tasked with creating diversions, the Animal Path summons several animals to trample the village. Later mobilising with the Human Path, the Animal Path sets its sights upon the Konohagakure Intelligence Division where it tracks down a chakra receiver.

When Naruto returns to the village, the Animal Path summons the other Six Paths of Pain to the Deva Path's side and then calls forth several summons which are defeated by Gamabunta, Gamaken and Gamahiro. The Path is then subsequently decommissioned by Naruto using his Sage Technique: Spiralling Serial Spheres inside Bunta's mouth.
