Greetings! Welcome to Kagemane, the TAFL-approved fanlisting dedicated to Nara Shikamaru (Japanese: 奈良 シカマル), a character from Naruto manga. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past ten years, you've probably heard of Naruto, which is a best-selling manga and anime series. It was created by the Japanese author Kishimoto Masashi (岸本斉史) and serialized in a Japanese magazine Shonen Jump from 1999 to 2014. Shikamaru was a recurring character in it, known for being extraordinarily lazy and easygoing yet extremely intelligent (his teacher determined that Shikamaru's IQ was over 200).

If you're a fan of this charismatic character, please, join us! If you want to update your fanlisting information, please use update form instead.

The character

Nara Shikamaru (奈良シカマル) is a ninja from the Hidden Leaf Village (aka Konohagakure). Born into the Nara clan, he is a member of the ninja team led by Sarutobi Asuma. The team also includes Akimichi Choji and Yamanaka Ino. They call themselves "Ino-Shika-Cho".

Shikamaru is introduced as an extraordinarily lazy guy. He's a kind of a person who gets inspired by nothing, avoids responsibility at all costs and spends all day just sleeping or watching clouds. He doesn't care about his low grades at the Ninja Academy or his exam results. The slightest effort, such as holding a pen and writing, is considered too "troublesome" by him. He is too lazy even to fight, therefore he calls himself "the number one coward". His favourite expression is mendokuse (めんどくせー, lit. "how troublesome").

However Shikamaru enjoys intellectual games, such as shogi, which he often played with his father Shikaku and his teacher Sarutobi Asuma. it's later revealed that Shikamaru is in fact a genius with an IQ of over 200, and that's why he is so bored with his classes at the Ninja Academy. Despite his unwillingness to fight, he is a brilliant strategist, and he's able to evaluate a number of different tactical scenarios in a matter of seconds and to choose the most effective one.

In combat he uses his clan's secret techniques of shadow manipulation, most notably Kagemane no Jutsu (影真似の術, "Shadow Imitation Technique"). It allows to control the opponent's movements via shadows.
