Water Release: Crushing Wave is a very simple technique that can become very dangerous in the hands of very experienced users who have a lot of chakra at their disposal.
After weaving the necessary hand seals, the user flows water chakra to their hands and spreads their hands out to either side. The water chakra is then released into the air in the form of small particles as the user swings their arms forward so that they cross at the center. The water chakra in the air allows the user to summon two waves of water on either side of the opponent. These waves will rush toward so that they both crash into the opponent at the same time. The effects can vary depending on the amount of chakra that is used and the shinobi's experience. Regardless of these factors, the technique rarely misses its target because of how sudden it is. Especially in the hands of users like Otohime who can use it without hand signs or without moving their arms at all.
