Why did kishimoto choose a slug and beetle for the tailed beasts?

1,012,883questions on

Exactly why is unknown. All the beasts was shown in the second art book with his comments. For the slug he said:

  • "The Six-Tails has a dripping feel to it¹. However, it doesn't spit lightning or anything (laugh). Utakata [the jinchūriki] is a charming character who uses soap bubble (bubble-style) ninjutsu."

¹ Like falling rain.

And for the beetle he said:

  • "The concept for the Seven-Tails was an insect. The armour has the feel of an insect's exoskeleton. I made the tails into wings. The jinchūriki is a girl, for now. I haven't completely decided yet (laugh)."
