"Ah, My Hero Lady Tsunade!" (ああ、憧れの綱手様, Ā, Akogare no Tsunade-sama) is episode 237 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
After Rock Lee falls into a river during their training, Tenten has a flashback of her youth, while waiting for him to surface. When she was a child, she had dreamed of becoming a strong kunoichi like her heroine: Tsunade, and thanks to Guy's guidance she initially began her path towards becoming a legendary medical-nin. However she failed during her training, while trying to heal a fish. So she attempts to sign a contract to summon a creature like Tsunade's famed slugs, but without success because of the quarrel with Ningame, Guy's summon. After many failures, Guy notes that she had a talent for Space–Time Ninjutsu and began honing her unique fighting style. After that she realised that she was a weapons specialist and vowed that instead of becoming just like Tsunade, she would still become a legendary kunoichi.
- In a scene where Team Guy is eating fish, there are lanterns in the background with a pattern resembling the Cursed Seal of Heaven.
