And the shinobi is … Moegi Kazamatsuri!!
Surprise, surprise. Before you swoop down on me like a flock of hungry vultures, I’d like to say that the title is 100% legit and I have proof to back the statement. So, as I was saying that Moegi Kazamatsuri is the latest person who is known to possess the legendary kekkei genkai. You’re not dreaming people, Moegi can use the wood release.
She is quite optimistic, free spirited and very confident. She has been described as being spoiled and determined. In Shippuden, she has become a lot more like Sakura, shown most prominently when Konohamaru performed his Sexy: Girl on Girl Technique. While Sakura became infuriated, before she had the chance, Moegi punched him saying that it was ridiculous to create a technique as useless as that, more so than performing it in front of a woman. She frequently has to correct Konohamaru for his perverted behaviour, though she genuinely cares for him. During Pain’s assault on Konoha, she showed the utmost bravery, seen when she saved a boy, and even willingly threw herself between him and Pain’s summon.
With this she has joined the ranks of some of the most powerful characters in the series.
The Wood Release as we know was used by some of the most powerful shinobi in the history. So, it is indeed shocking that Moegi can use this overpowered ability. It would be really interesting to know how Moegi acquired this ability or was she was born with the Wood Release just like the First Hokage, Hashirama Senju.
Whatever the case, Moegi Kazamatsuri is definitely going to be a strong kunoichi. The proof of this is actually given in the Volume Four of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Each time it is released, three new cards are also released which show the abilities of three different characters.
The photo of the card is given below—
So how is this possible? The Naruto wiki has stated this about her wood release –
” By adulthood, Moegi possessed the nature transformations Earth and Water Release, which she could combine to use Wood Release, allowing her to use Wood Release: Verdure Technique (木遁・緑色の術, Mokuton: Ryokushoku no Jutsu) and Wood Release: Vegetation Barrier (木遁・草木結界, Mokuton: Sōmoku Kekkai). She can also use Penetration Technique (看破の術, Kanpa no Jutsu) and sensory techniques. ”
Anyway moving on. Moegi’s name can be translated as “Young Tree Buds.” So, wood release acts a reference to her name. Let’s move on to her attributes, which I must say are just as impressive. She has 70 in strength, 140 in negotiation, 126 in chakra, 130 in intelligence, 180 in perception, and 160 in dexterity.
So, she’s a very high level kunoichi. Moving Swiftly forward, she has three stars in both seduction and marksmanship, and four stars in sensory techniques. So, her best attribute among those three listed abilities is her sensory skill. There were other two cards which were revealed as well.
