For them it's respect, for Naruto and Tsunade, it's either for the lulz or possibly respect, as I dunno how the original Japanese text says.

    I agree but Naruto is the only one that calls her that name and get away with it.


    You truly deserve the title of Yondaime Hokage

    He calls her obaa-chan (granny, grandma) which is an "honorific" used for old people in Japan. They aren't related.

    Similarily you might call an old guy "uncle" or a kid might call someone older than them "big brother" or "big sister".

    It has nothing to do with them being related.

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    If Minato were Tsunade's son, it wouldn't have made any sense for her to have this fixation with the "becoming hokage" dream of her brother and Dan. I just wouldn't fit with her story and such. In fact, I think there are a couple of theories I'd think are more possible:

    Since Minato isn't Senju as a last name, he must've had a father from the Namikaze clan and a mother from the Senju (for Naruto to be blood-related to the clan). So,

    1. Tsunade could've had another sister (an older sister), or
    2. Hashirama had more than one son, so Tsunade and Minato are related, but not quite. However, that would rule out the relation between the blond hair as a family trait.
    3. Minato is related to Tobirama.

    In fact, it was noted in this awesome post by someone-whose-name-I-can't-remember, Minato's hand pose resembles the Shintenshin no jutsu's sign.
    http://mangastream.com/read/naruto/18388702/8

    Minato could actually be related to the Yamanaka clan (as in being son of a Yamanaka and a Namikaze, being one of these two parents a son of Hashirama or Tobirama).

    I think it's impossible to tell until Kishi pulls it out of his... creativity.

    He's the only one with that kind of personality. <_< Plus, Tsunade likes Naruto, so she wouldn't mind as much. I'm guessing she thinks Naruto's like her grandkid, or mixture of her brother and lover.

    It doesn't wholly make sense that Tsunade and Dan are Minato's parents, but it might explain how Tsunade's boobs got bigger. <_<

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    Naruto only calls Tsunade "granny" because she is literally an older woman.
    It does not mean that Naruto is by means directly related to her, or even her grandson.

    Kishimoto is purposely keeping the parentage of Naruto's father a mystery, although we can assume that he was born and grew up in Konoha.

    Maybe Kishimoto is fond of fan forum discussions of people trying to make the most out of character relationships, and putting pieces together when they shouldn't be.

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    It can't be true...
    Seriously... do you know a lot of grandmother who will go out and fight their grandson the first time they see him?

    It's a nice theory, but it doesn't make sense...
    At best, she could his grand-aunt, but certainly not his grandmother...


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    As interesting as it would be, some hints would've been dropped if Dan and Tsunade were related. We probably won't know who his parents are because the topic hasn't really been brought up at all in the manga.

    First we dont know Tsu is daughter of Hashirama's son or daughter. Hash had chid but not knowing son or daughter
    Second: In the manga, it only says Tsu is granddaughter of 1st. not says she is on father's side or mother's side.
    i think she's on the mother's side. that's why Kishi still not states her surname. why not? even she is Senju but not having senju name. That's strange.

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    If Tsunade is Minato's mother then wouldn't that make Naruto sort of inbred? I mean, I'm not saying it's not possible, but Naruto is already related to Tsunade in some way on his mother's side, since Tsunade's grandmother was Uzumaki Mito, so if Tsunade is 1/4 Uzumaki by blood, then Minato would also be Uzumaki by 1/8, then he marries and Uzumaki Kushina who is 1/2, so erm...whatever.

    Though, I could get behind the idea I guess.
    I wonder if I ever posted in this thread before...

    hashirama senju + mito uzumaki = either tsunade's mom or dad (since she was his granddaughter and not grandnephew. if she were a grand nephew it would mean that one of tsunade's parents is tobirama senju's kid or from another sibling of shodai and nidai's if in fact they had other siblings).

    tsunade (senju could be her middle name or surname depending if she's from a daughter or son of hashirama) + dan = minato namikaze (in case this is true).

    minato (a senju because of her mother's blood) + uzumaki kushina = naruto uzumaki ( naruto namikaze in actuality).

    uzumaki's are distant relatives of the senju. hence, their body's capability to withstand, and control bijuu chakra. it was said that this trait is shared by the two clans.

    basing from these, while the tsunade + dan = yondaime is just a theory for now, we can have the following possibilities:

    1. as distant relatives hashirama senju and mito uzumaki already in-bred.

    2. in-breeding again happened when kushina uzumaki, (a) generation/s younger compared to mito (who could be mito's great grand-nephew, distant great grand-nephew, from a sibling, cousin, or distant cousin since they share the same family name) had a child from minato who, in this thread we're in, is (pressumably) tsunade's son. making yondy hashirama and mito's great grandson accordingly. just like the poster above said.

    3. naruto has senju blood--or in reference to the rikudou sage's younger child, he has the blood and physical capability fit to wield the kyuubi chakra, thus, he can, and has become a jin--from both sides of his family which is a product of in-breeding between distant relatives uzumaki and senju.

    although the theory that minato could be tsunade's son seem plausible, i would rather not have it happened. this whole in-breeding thing is complex already. minato being a random guy with monstrous talent who came from a different family, who happened to knock-up the kyuubi's jin who came from a noble clan, would make the situation easier to grasp, at least for me, and also waaaay less-weirder.

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    I think it's possible dan had a kid before he got together with tsunade. His wife could of died as they are ninjas. That would also explain Minato's dream to become hokage as his father didn't get the chance to live out his dream. It would also make sense with naruto calling her granny because in a sense she would be a subistitute grandmother. But this is just a thought because i don't think minato and tsunade are blood related at all.

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    This Idea probably has soemthing to do with Tsunades hair color. But honestly I would like to see the history of Namikaze clan. I think it will show a lot of sides of Naruto like spirit and justice.
    I dont think that Dan is the faher of Minato, otherwise there would be some other approach to Minato.

    Re: Are Tsunade & Dan Minato's mother and father?

    No they are related but they are not related like that.

    Tsunade is the first granddaughter of the First Hokage: Hashirama Senju, and his wife Mito Uzumaki, as well as the grandniece of the Second Hokage: Tobirama Senju,

    so if naruto dad was the son of tsunade that would mean he hooked up with like his cousin lol and had a kid.

    good try tho but in your talk about how they look u were getting close because naruto~his mom & tsunade are all related to both (Senju~Uzumaki)

    but naruto's dad I think is just a random clan that probley moved to hidden leaf before he was born and becoming part of the village

    Also on a side note~ if u noticed all the tailed beast say naruto is the old man reincarnated so im pointing out that kinda means their hinting he is related to them.
