Naruto 30 Day Challenge → Day 6: Favorite Chuunin Exam Proctor
♥ Nara Shikamaru
So, we’ve never really seen Shikamaru conducting himself as an Exam Proctor, but I’m counting him anyway! (If we’d be looking only at Ibiki/Anko/Hayate/Genma, it would’ve been either Genma or Hayate).
Shikamaru is a character who I loved from the first moment he appeared. I absolutely loved the fact that he doesn’t have any ambitions other than finding an average wife and leading an average life! That being said, his moment in the spotlight as a Chuunin Captain during the Sasuke retrieval arc chapters and seeing how he conducted himself made me really believe in his capabilities as an amazing shinobi.
Part II only proved that further during his fantastic revenge on Hidan and the more human moments he shared. In short, Nara Shikamaru is a very human character and I always appreciate that.
