Anko Mitarashi(みたらしアンコMitarashi Anko) is the examiner for the second phase of the Chunin Exams. "Anko" and "Mitarashi" are ingredients in dango, which happens to be her favorite food. Anko is easygoing, tomboyish, and sometimes hyperactive, making a dramatic entry through a window ahead of schedule. Anko is a former student of Orochimaru and was one of ten children to be branded with the Cursed Seal of Heaven. Because Anko was the only survivor, the seal was determined to have only a 10% chance of survival. Since she lacked the lust for power and vengeance needed to fuel the seal, Orochimaru wiped her mind and left her in the Land of the Sea. During her time with Orochimaru, Anko learned several of his techniques, such as the ability to summon snakes. She was also taught how to use the Twin Snakes Mutual Death Technique (双蛇相殺の術Sōjasōsai no Jutsu, Viz "Twin Snakes Kill Each Other," English TV "Twin Snake Sacrifice Jutsu"), which calls forth two snakes from her sleeves to bite the wrists of her and her opponent, killing both via the venom that enters their bloodstream.
