Naruto Shippuden has been a very bleak series for its entirety, with treachery, evil revelations and unexpected deaths at every corner. Unlike Naruto's manga however, the animated series gives it's audience “respite” arcs, best-known as "filler" by fans.
Naruto's Tsunade is a very hot woman with curvy assets, renowned as the world's strongest kunoichi. Which is why watching her effortlessly capture a bug and crush it in the palm of her hand is a sexy yet underrated moment in the Naruto: Shippūden anime series. Episode 287 "One Worth betting on" to be exact.
Anime is known for it's avid obsession of trampling and stomping bugs. Several Anime films depict cute girls awkwardly trampling helpless insects beneath their feet, either barefoot or in chunky shoes. Short clips which can be found and viewed on the weird part of Youtube.
Regardless of these other clips, Tsunade's hand crush is very special indeed. She doesn't squish the insect in a traditional fashion and nor is she panicking or inconveniently moving around. Tsunade captures the flying pest with ease and squeezes the bloody life out of it. Telling us this probably isn't the first time Tsunade has caught and squashed a bug.
Tsunade takes a quick glimpse at the insect struggling to escape, before squeezing it in the palm of her hand and revealing a cruel, sadistic and twisted nature. Hand crushes in general are rare, specially compared to foot crush media. Which only makes this scene more intense, exciting and nob throbbing.
The female ninja not only displays her speed, agility and female dominance but also a merciless and impatient disposition for small insects. After Tsunade captures the creepy-crawly, Raikage asks "what is it?" totally oblivious to the bug flying over his head, to which Tsunade casually responds "just a bug".
Not only does Tsunade crush the bug in her hand, but she also doesn't have any regard for it's life, seeing it as nothing more then a nuisance. No matter how small and trivial this scene is, witnessing Tsunade cruelly crushing a bug in the palm of her hand along with the lazy "just a bug" line will forever be one of Tsunade's hottest on-screen moments.
The details of Tsunade's palm, her coloured nails and overall milky skin tone highlight what makes this scene so sensual and powerful. As Tsunade closes her fist, you can see the trembling force and impending doom of her tiny victim whose life is taken away for simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
