The user spits out high-viscosity, chakra infused water, aimed at a surface of wide scope. This is a stream of sticky liquid which can be used to form an adhesive trap that can inhibit a person's mobility. One can effectively reduce their enemy's area of activity with this technique, and has the effect of being able to take complete control over the battlefield. The normal scope of this technique is normally just a few metres, but if prepared, it is also possible to make an entire pond of starch syrup. Being caught in the technique can be avoided by channelling chakra to one's feet allowing one to walk upon it uninhibited, beforehand.


  • Mizuame is a Japanese sweetener made by converting starch to sugars. It takes the form of a clear, thick, and most of all sticky liquid. It can be literally translated as Water Candy, emphasising its likeness to water and explaining why it is used in a water release technique.
  • In an omake, it is shown that this technique's creation was inspired when Izumo knocked over a jar of syrup, which was previously being eaten plain by Kotetsu Hagane, and subsequently tripped in the sticky substance.
  • In the anime, it appears that Izumo is able to control the water to some extent.
