    In the semi-recent Magna chapters we see the Sound ninjas and their cursed seals and the power they wield. There is mention of the "Heaven" seal and the "Gaia" seals being the strongest seals. Now cast your mind way back to the second Chuunin exam in the forest, where Orochimaru reveals himself, and Anko hunts him down.
    Orochimaru mentions a history with Anko and how he "used her and cast her aside." Now what does that mean? Anko went down the same path as Sasuke did, for more power? She also has a lot of snake abilities.. which is quite interesting.
    What I'm wondering, is when she returned from the Forest and spoke to the Third Hokage, there seemed to be a bit of uncertainity and awkwardness between Anko and the Third, who knew about her history with Orochimaru.

    It hasnt been covered enough yet, but in light of the recent curse seals and all this stuff, im just wondering whether this unexplained seal will be covered eventually and just what kind of relationship she had with Orochimaru... and if she ever went to level 2 form. That'd be so badass, wouldnt it?

    Yeah, just my thoughts. Was wondering what you guys think of this?

    She was Orochimaru's subordinate, just like Yondaime was Jiraiya's...

    She was probably one of the first he experimented the curse seal on.

    as Shidoshi said she was his subordinate,

    dunno if she can do that thou, I think she only can reach lvl1, and i dont think she ate the pill that sasuke did and was "stuffed in a box"...

    but her with "tribal tattos" on her arm would look nice thou...

    I also don't think she can use level 2...and Oro dumped her because she had no talent...she was useless.

    Boner's right, if she was capable of a level 2 transformatiopn she would have used it against her fight with orochimaru, not use that "double snake assassination" technique she was planning on using

    Yeah, like others have said, she was Orochimaru's student the way Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke are students to Kakashi and the 4th was to Jiraya. As for he being useless, not that she was useless, more like she wasn't what he needed for his plans. She is a jouinn after all.

    Anko is not useless, remember she survive the curse seal, i think Dosu said only 10% survive the curse seal.
    Anko is useless in the sense that she did not crave power, like the other with the curse seal, remember she did not activate the curse seal during her fight with Oro.

    We dont know just from this incidence that she cannot use it, as we have learned with Sasuke using the seal has consequences and i doubt Anko wanted to lose herself to the seal.

    I dont think she took Sasuke's path. I think Oro decived Anko to get what he wanted out of her.

    The reason why Anko's not using the Curse Seal is because of the side effect, and because she will actually loose her mind (i think), like Sasuke did when he woke up after the bite.

    Yeah, this is one of those side-plots I *really* want to know more about...

    I agree, I don't think she's useless (she seems capable enough) but that she wasn't willing to go the lengths for power that his other pupils where. She saw the price and thought it too high?

    I also felt like if their relationship might have gone farther than just master/apprentice, but maybe my mind is just twisted...

    It makes me wonder. I think they should include her part in the story since she seem to have some history with Orochimaru.

    She maybe found out that Oro was going to destroy Konoha for some reason. Or as menitoned that she was too weak and so on. Looks like she can control that seal very well.

    Oro only had her as his student, I wonder why.

    Yes, she'd have used a method that would make her more of a slave to Orochimaru's will :rolleyes: I think you'll find that Anko's difficulty in that fight, and her attempted use of the double snake assassination technique has more to do with her guilt over things she did in service to Orochimaru, things which likely hurt Konoha or its inhabitants. The fact is, Anko wanted to die out there. Using her seal would have been worse than nothing.

    That actually makes sense. That would make such a nice side story. (See, Kishimoto hasn't run out of flashback ideas yet.)

    I have a feeling we might be seeing more on this soon, i think Kishimoto put her in early as having the cursed seal to use this later as part of another plot twist.

    Bring her back, Kishimoto-sama...Bring Anko back...

    Am I the only one who thinks Anko would be a good mentor for Sasuke? I'm writing a fanfic (very slowly...) where she's going to be assigned his guardian and move into the Uchiha house/manor.

    Another interesting thing to note:

    Anko has the SAME style of Curse Seal that Sasuke has, the Heaven Seal.

    Being that they state that the Heaven and Gaia are the 2 strongest of the curse seals, (and it insinuates that almost no one has those seals... its probably only Sasuke, Anko, and Kimimaro).

    using the seal gives orochimaru power over you... i think her seal is sealed .. kind of like sasukes was.. and if she uses it she could become orochimarus slave again.

    BTW... why does it seem like orochimaru only had one student... her. while every one else has 3.

    Anko's Curse Seal

    We saw during the second part of the Chuunin Exam that Anko also has one of Orochimaru's curse seals. I was wondering if we're ever going to see Anko actually activate it. She's probably aware of the negative effects it would have on her, but she has a lot of determination, and if she was determined to beat somebody - especially Orochimaru himself - she might use it anyway.

    Your opinions or additions..?
