my fave part has come. yup, this section we've enlisted all the small
things which will add your knowledge about Naruto (hopefully...).
was it a coincidence that Naruto
loves ramen because ramen has a topping named Naruto as well? um...
i dunno. for those who didn't know what 'naruto' topping is, check out
a sliced white steamed fish-paste cake with a pink spiral (uzumaki)
mark on the middle. btw, my fave ramen is miso ramen!
what's Kakashi fave book? everyone
can tell it's the (slightly) nasty adult novel "Icha Icha
Paradise." if you pay attention carefully to its cover
you will find 2 different versions i.e. a boy ran after a girl and a
girl ran after a boy. the 2 next titles are Icha Icha Violence
and recent Icha Icha Tactics.
weak point ^^"
what's Kakashi weak point? sumthing you might never thought
before ^,~ i.e. Kakashi really hates spoilers! esp.
spoiler of his recent fave novel "Icha Icha Tactics." Naruto
and Sakura defeated Kakashi-sensei with this
weak point in the Battle of The Bells. what a 'flawless' victory!
is about Kakashi's childhood story when his tutor, Yondaime
and his comrades, Uchiha Obito and Rin
were still alive. differs
from his indolent adulthood, Kakashi was a very strict ninja when he's
a kid. Kakashi's sharingan in his left eye was actually a gift from
Obito before he met his death.
The Tailed Beasts
in the Part 2 it was said that the Akatsuki
was after the so-called Tailed Beasts. surprisingly there are another
besides Kyuubi and Shukaku, which total is 9. these beasts have an enormous
amount of chakra which no men can control and they were named after
the number of tails they have.
me and Shikamaru's
most fave game. Shougi has certain features
in common with chess, it has 6 kinds of officers in addition to the
King and Pawns, but the officers have very lil freedom of movement.
and in addition to the relative rigidity of the pieces there is a further
obstruction to skill. >> learn
buranku is a classic Japanese puppet play. however, differs
from most puppet plays, buranku uses a humanoid marionette. due to its
size and weight, usually it takes more than one puppet master to move
it. yet, Kankuro is even able
to move three puppets at once.
a name for the elite intel force. their distinctive features
are the uniform, a tattoo on their left arm, and a mask (kamen) they
always wear on duty. in Japan, you can find and buy these masks in Japanese
festivals (esp. during summer). the figures are mostly animals such
as dog, cat, fox, bird, etc.
and the Toads
indeed it was not a coincidence why Jiraiya
is close related with toads. Jiraiya is one of those Japanese legendary
ninja. he was known as a great Toad Hermit and has a loyal toad pet
named Gama-chan. also, Jiraiya has a rival-friend named
and the Serpents
why did Orochimaru resemble with
serpent? well, his name itself means great serpent, taken from a giant
serpent Yamata no Orochi. Susanoo no Mikoto slew this serpent and taken
from its tail a sword called Murakumo no Tsurugi, which then renamed
by Prince Yamato Take as Kusanagi no Tsurugi.
and the Slugs
seems like Kishimoto-sensei has deliberately chosen the trio
legendary ninja i.e. Jiraiya, Orochimaru and Tsunade
to be in his story. Tsunade was probably the most famous kunoichi in
Japanese legend. she was known also as slug hermit. in Naruto, she has
a huge slug named Katsuyu.
clan and the Deers
the Nara clan is known to raise up deers, well i found some
hints about it. firstly 'shika' in Shikamaru means deer and Nara is
the first Japanese capital during the Nara period (710 - 784 A.D.) which
is known to worship deer as God's messenger. thus you'll be seeing many
deers live freely in Nara park.
and the Ninken
dog has been known as men's best friend, as well as shinobi's.
and Kakashi is known as a shinobi who uses dogs as his assists. he has
total 8 dogs, from many different races. yet there's only one introduced
its name i.e. Pakkun. this lazy-eyed bulldog is really
good at sniffing tracks, yet lame in battle.
ENMA, the Monkey King
originally taken from a Chinese legend, and better known in
Japan as Saiyuki. it
concerns the myriad adventures of a fabulous and supernatural monkey
of amazing strength, charm, and versatility. Enma was summoned by the
great Sandaime near his death.
as you can see, the portrait on the left shows that the great
Sandaime was the tutor of the legendary Sannin: Jiraiya,
Orochimaru, and Tsunade. don't you think those three have many things
in common with Kakashi's Team 7?
now you'll know why Orochimaru seems to know a lot about Anko.
it's because he was the tutor of lil Anko. it seems to me that Anko
had a kind of hidden feeling upon her former tutor (was it love?).
wow, what a surprise! our perverted hermit was actually the
tutor of cute Yondaime. too bad Yondaime died soon
after he sealed Kyuubi. i'd just wondered, was Yondaime as nasty as
his former tutor? thank god he's not ^,^
