First Appearance in Anime
Naruto Episode: 1
Konohagakure (the Village Hidden in the Leaves)
Iwana Akame is a Ninja Academy teacher and he is one of the first characters who appears in Naruto episode one “Enter: Naruto Uzumaki!” He appeared when Mizuki made Naruto Uzumaki steal the Scroll of Seals from the Hokage residence for his own benefit. After getting the scroll, Naruto learns Multi Shadow Clone Jutsu.
Mizuki lied to him that whoever learns the one Jutsu from the Scroll of Seals would graduate from the Ninja Academy. Iwana, alongside other shinobi, told the Third Hokage (Hiruzen Sarutobi) about the incident and then the Third Hokage gave the order to bring back Naruto and the Scroll of Seals to him.
In the end, Iruka Umino was able to save Naruto and the Scroll of Seals from Mizuki. It is unknown how he lost his left eye, as it was never mentioned in any episode of the Naruto series.
Iwana was also seen in the background with Daikoku Funeno and Bekko shouting to stop the fight between Itachi Uchiha and other Ninja Academy students who were bullying Itachi. They all were impressed by Itachi using Shadow Clone Jutsu at that young age.
Iwana Akame seems short-tempered. He was seen getting angry with Naruto because he stole the Scroll of Seals. He seemed not to trust anyone easily.
Iwana wears one eye patch over his left eye. He wears a Hidden Leaf head protector and a standard Konoha shinobi outfit that has a flak jacket and navy jumpsuit. He has bandages around both his wrist.
Iwana is a chunin-rank shinobi, which means he must know all the basic techniques and must be skilled. He is an intelligent and talented shinobi and that’s why he became a Ninja Academy teacher.
