It's like thinking while running, or making a phone call. His mind is there, but he's also aware of his surroundings, he's not gazing into space. Also, it's very likely that these interactions happen much faster than we see them (in the real world), just like thoughts and dreams are experienced by the brain in a flash, while to us it seems as if it took ...

In chapter 498 of the manga, it is mentioned that Naruto inherited this habit from his mother, Kushina, who would instead end her sentences with "(Da)-ttebane" ([だ]ってばね) when she got excited or angry. She also mentioned something along the lines of hoping that her son wouldn't inherit this habit.

Based on research... ...Ninjas frequently were portrayed running with The Airplane Arms. Ninja are also frequently portrayed running this way (with the arms swept farther back, like the wings on an F-14 Tomcat), though they now tend to prefer the Ninja Run. Samurai also run in a similar manner, usually while keeping one hand grasped onto their katana. In ...

I have collected a few reasons, which are actually assumptions.. Because he was an ANBU. All the members of ANBU wear masks for various reasons. (hiding their identity, their feelings, expression, and so on, making them merely fighting robots) Since his childhood days, he always was looked down on by the villagers because his father sacrificed a mission in ...

The shortest and most sensible answer I could find is: The standard Ninja Run is this: Body tilted forward, low to the ground. One forearm crooked in front of the body, apparently to block attacks (two fingers held in front of the mouth optional but prevalent). The other arm behind the back, ready to pull out a bladed weapon. Another ...

After using myanimelist as a source for duration's I came to the conclusion that it would take you : 18084 minutes of non-stop watching which equals to 301.4 hours of non-stop watching which equals to 12.5 days of non-stop watching Naruto. So you could finish watching all of Naruto in less then 2 weeks. Taking breaks and real life into consideration this ...

Each Mangekyo is given a different eye pattern, and a different ability. Mangekyo literally translates to kaleidoscope, where each time you look you see a different, symmetric shape. Itachi had access to Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi Sasuke used Amaterasu and Kagutsuchi, which allowed him to shape and control his Amaterasu Obito has Kamui. Obito also uses "throw-...

Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow Sakura's hair is short in the movie. She cut it during the chunin exams.

Naruto and Hinata - Bolt (Boruto) and Himawari Sasuke and Sakura - Salad (Sarada) Shikamaru and Temari - Shikadai Chouji and Karui - Chouchou Ino and Sai - Inojin Kurenai and Asuma - Mirai Sarutobi Kiba is shown with Tamaki, but we don't even know if there's anything going on between them. Rock Lee is shown training with a kid that looks like him, and ...

The point is quite simple. And indeed in this Wiki on Edo Tensei, it is stated that If you're reading the Manga, the fact about Jiraiya is stated in the Volume 55, Chapter 520, page 14, so you can read if you got there: So, that's a pretty simple but fundamental requirement.

The concept of the Nine Bijuu is based off Japanese mythology, although there are some parallels Kishimoto does not follow though completely with the myths. It seems like Kishimoto is purposely using names with different kanji, but the same pronunciation, such as Kokuou in Naruto is 穆王 (majestic/respectful king), while Kokuou from Hokuto no Ken is 黒王 (black ...

No, they are not blood-related. When Lee wasn't in Guy-sensei's team yet, he was often mocked and bullied because of his inability to use any techniques other than Taijutsu. Guy-sensei was the first one to really believe in Lee's abilities, and thus he became Lee's idol. From the wiki: When first joining Team Guy Lee's appearance changed drastically. He ...

Technically speaking, Naruto never landed the killing blow on anyone. Haku, even though beaten by Naruto, jumped in front of Kakashi's Raikiri. Kakuzu, hit directly by the Rasenshuriken, survived, and later killed by Kakashi. Pain's bodies were already dead. Nagato, the living puppeteer, sacrificed himself after hearing Naruto's resolve, with the Rinne ...

Although I can't find any reliable source, it seems that both are based on Saṃsāra : The repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth (reincarnation) within Hinduism, Buddhism, Bön, Jainism, and Yoga. Source: Wikipedia This represents both the Six Paths of Pain (also Rinne is the Japanese Name for Samsāra) and the "one is all, all is one"-thing in ...

It's like jumping off a building. You can jump from the first, second or third floor and survive. The method to reach all the floors remains the same (Climbing by stairs... or you may call this training.). However, after a certain number of floors, you will come to a realization that after you jump through this floor (let's just say the 20th -- you need ...

It does not seem like any of Madara's new abilities have a counter to sound genjutsu, especially when boosted by Senjutsu / Sage mode. While sound genjutsu and Senjutsu are both very rare, the manga has shown two examples of different techniques of that type being effective against techniques that Madara has recently gained. The two Sage Toads' sound ...

According to the Naruto Wiki: Suddenly orphaned, Naruto was left to grow up knowing nothing of his parents, receiving only his mother's last name as Hiruzen believed it was best that nobody knew that he was related to the Fourth Hokage.

Naruto only used this jutsu one time in normal form (against Kakuzu, and got many side effects, like you said), the other times he was at Sage mode, at this state he didn't damage himself. According to Naruto Wiki: Naruto later improved the Rasenshuriken with Sage Mode. This allows him to throw it at his opponents, and removes the threat of damaging ...

It's unknown exactly how did he die, but here's what we can find. His wiki page says: However, if we head to the Konohagakure wiki page, we will find a more specific note: Now, here's what we know about the First Shinobi War (emphasis mine): So it indeed looks like he died in the First Shinobi War, which is not too surprising, considering that 1 ...

I'm not sure if Neji was exactly surprised, or if it was more of a realisation of the how the technique worked and of its potential. But anyway, my take is that this is something like a "minor plot hole". I say this because although, as you said, Naruto performed this jutsu in his fight against Kiba, no one seemed to give any attention to it. In that fight, ...

The Rasengan is an A-rank technique created by the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, by observing the Tailed Beast Ball. Minato spent three years developing the Rasengan. Jiraiya taught Naruto how to create and use Rasengan.

Here is a very good post by chennyyeo that may answer your question about The Last - Naruto The Movie. Her theories and explanations proves that the movie does not contradict the manga (and it is actually a canon material) and to explain Naruto’s feelings (that he DID NOT fall for Hinata in the movie, rather, he realized his romantic feelings for her) ...

As can be seen on this image, it was indeed the 4th Hokage that Orochimaru tried to summon. The kanji that appears in that coffin is 四, which is the kanji for 4. However, unlike you said in your question, Hiruzen did not stop this coffin. It was the fact that the 4th Hokage was sealed with the Shiki Fuujin that prevented that summoning.

They're not actually whiskers. They're whisker marks, just marks on his face that resemble whiskers. Yes, this has to do with the kyuubi. When Naruto was influenced by Kurama prior to birth, he gained the whisker marks: Naruto's most prominent physical characteristics, however, are the whisker marks on his face that he gained from Kurama's influence on ...

Only Tsunade's measurements were revealed in the series (courtesy of Jiraiya). And I don't think the databooks include details like bust measurements. So the comparisons would be based on the appearance solely. Visual comparison isn't a good way of getting the right answer. But if you're looking for another character who has noticeably big oppai, there's ...

The Naruto anime is broken up into two "Series". The first is Naruto, which covers events up until the 3 year time jump in the manga. The second is Naruto: Shippūden, which starts after that jump and continues onwards. Both series have a fair share of anime exclusive plots, so here's the breakdown of Anime exclusive plots: Naruto Ep 26: "Special Report: ...

The answer pretty much lies on the skills and abilities of the Uzumaki Clan. 1st: Members of this clan were very knowledgeable in the art of fūinjutsu, and were both respected, and feared worldwide because of their prodigious skill. Fūinjutsu are a type of jutsu that seal objects, living beings, chakra, along with a wide variety of other things within ...
