Shizune (シズネ, Shizune) is the assistant of Tsunade, the Fifth Hokage.
Shizune is a fair-skinned woman with black eyes and hair. Her hair is straight and shoulder-length with bangs that cover her ears and frame her face. Shizune is usually seen in a long bluish-black kimono with white trimmings, held closed by a white obi, and open-toed sandals with low heels.
Shizune tends to stress over details, such as Tsunade's tendency to gamble and to think with her heart. She often gets comically worked up over any irrational decision Tsunade makes. Shizune also looks after Tonton, Tsunade's pet pig. She is also a very kind and calm person but will immediately rush to Tsunade's aide and in contrast.
She is not the type to tire easily and is very energetic and efficient while acting in her capacity of Hokage's Assistant, often urging Tsunade to finish the paperwork in order to avoid mountains of unsigned documents later on.
- She shares the same voice actress as Tonton.
