Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/13/14 - 10/19/14).
Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
Please add some of your reasons for picking a specific order.
2. Choji, with his new found power was named the head of his clan. Its comparable to Sage Mode IMO (Strength wise)
3. Neji. Genius, deadly Taijutsu.
4. Lee. Gates
5. Shikamaru. Genis, but lazy.
I added some extra Genins ^
1&2- Sasuke and Naruto. Each is powerful enough to explode the other ex-genin. They possess illegal abilities: MS and EMS for Sasuke and SM+being jinchuuriki for naruto
3-Neji: He's genius, he was the only Jounin (both in level and in rank) out of the 12 who were in Konoha in the begin of Shippuden(therefore excluding Sasuke (for rank, not level)). Hyuuga Style Taijutsu prodigy
4-Rock Lee/Aburame Shino: 1st) really powerful with his Tajutsu and Gate-Opening ability. 2nd) Shino represents well the character of ninja (not as well as Haku and Itachi, but still). He analyze the situation, trick the enemy (vs Kankurou), has a wide and precise enough range of action tanks to his bugs that can be used to capture, tracking, torture, espionnage, detection/surveillance, diversion, defense and escape. Quite good versatility to compensate with his less impressive taijutsu skills.
5-Shikamaru: Truly intelligent, skilled leader, analyst who knows how to take advantage of the situation. His situation is particular because he can defeat opponents more powerful than himself but I think he would have some trouble dealing with Shino's bugs who can't really get caught by the Kage style Ninjutsu. He might caught Rock Lee if his not moving too fast but his shadow would turn less effective if Rock Lee releases too much chakra by opening the Inner doors.
6-Chouji: the last chapters made him interesting. I thought about putting Kibamaru before him his greater speed but... the last chapters were interesting and the coin decided otherwise.
7-Kibamaru: They have both speeding, speed and agility when the enter beast-mode/man mode or when they fuse to create cerberus' brother (cerberus "truly" had a two-headed brother, but forgot the name). They can track the enemy which reduce they "let's move out of range to think of something against that beast" time/opportunity, but isn't smart enough if you ask me.
8-TenTen: almost respect for the taijutsu weapon useing girl. vast amount of weapons in stuck, always hit the target (except when she doesn't hahaha). The fastest among the girls.
9- Hinata: must give credit to the Jyuuken user. She even start using hakkeshou. You kill with those. Not even need to actually physically touch the target. Problem: she lack initative or "you're mom's waiting for you in hell, punk!" attitude (she's the one supoposed to say that, not turning into kamikaze).
10-Sakura: Except for her strength she's not impressive enough in battle(the vs. sasori think was total nonsense. Ask Gaara to play with satetsu and you would have seen what someone with Sasori's caliber really was supposed to use it). She ain't fast enough (except if you act like Zetsu hehehe). And she got owned so well by Karui of the Cloud I can just laugh and put her behing Hinata (I would have put her behind hinata anyway, from part 1 to now.)
If Sakura fights against Hinata, the only thing could do to protect herself would be to blow the ground hoping for the projectiles and stuff to keep her at a certain distance. And she can't hind from the Byakugan. Tenten is also faster and better in taijutsu than she is (Sakura just being physically stronger thanks to chakra control).
Ino's out of the thing. You see her making the seals and she's dead.
If I was to put Gaara, Kankurou and Temari they would respectively be 3rd, 5th and 6th.
Sasuke uchiha since the beggining of the academy was the best of the 12 genins and he kept his growing and kept his sharingan evolving and until this point of the manga sasuke is one of the strongest shinobis of this world.
Naruto was the clown of the 12 genins but he worked so hard and kept his nindo way and worked so hard to become strong and by now he is consider a hero and learned sennin-sage and even over come the kyuubi and it's even able to use the kyuubi power.
naruto & sasuke are the strongest of the 12.
Tier 2 (Neji,Shikamaru,shino).
Neji had obtained many of the skills only taught to the main family line while
they're only tought to the main family member and he is become even stronger after naruto
showed him that you can change you destiny and had learned how to used his byakugan.
Shikamaru is a slacker but he is a strong shinobi and his stragedies made him a jonin in the chunin exam.
Shino is a stranger guy that he doesn't talk to much and it is a serious shinobi but as we saw and the chunin exam shino defeated kankuro and proved how strong he is with his bugs.
Tier 3.( lee,sakura,).
Lee was a ninja that couldn't performed any ninjutsu but that didn't stop him for becoming a shinobi and worked harder to make it up for his lack of ninjutsu and worked on his tajutsu harder than the rest and become a great shinobi..
Sakura been good since the beggining and she has a strong punch and until now keep her
physical power and mastering tsunade's healing power.
Tier 4(kiba choji hinata)
Kiba and choji are good shinobi but nothing out of normal.
Hinata is from the main family but her confident is really low and thank's to naruto
she obtained his nindo way and had work hard to become stronger.
no coment about these two the weakest of the 12.
Apparently you've forgotten what Choji did a few chapters ago. The Guy has proven himslf to be in the top 5 Gennin, i personally put him only behind Sasuke and Naruto. I also think shino gets to much credit just for having chakra sucking bugs, i mean what has he done? really!!
1. Sasuke and Naruto
3. Hyyuga Neji
Kiba hasnt really done anythign to be worthy of a higher rank. Yes, he fought Sakon but needed Kankuros help. On the other hand, we havent seen Shino in action much either, bugs doesnt necessarily mean bad performance.
Sakura is the strongest female genin, she is extremely skilled Medic and fought sasori bravely. Ino's effective ninja with medic skills at the same time, make them higher ranked than kiba. Hinata is ahead only of tenten, a filler character for all practical purposes.

But all said, hes definitely more useful than lee, who can do only taijutsu, I think a 6 position is fitting for him

shikamaru had proved to be smart and he defeated hidan and in the whole 542 chapters he has helped alot in so many fights and even neji not been part of the main hyuuga family and neji has proved that he is great shinobi, he is a jonin for something , he learned all the techniques and become so strong and sakura defeated sasori and learned to be a medical ninja and even rock lee with his lack of ninjutsu had showed something thw hard work but choji,ino,tenten and even kiba haven't proved be better than the rest of the shinobi 12 andshino at least defeated kankuro in the gaara arc.

I guess you forgot that Choji defeated Asuma and Kakuzu.... If thats not enough for you to put him in the top five, name some else who has defeated elite shinobis by themselves beside Naruto and Sasuke.
So Sakura defeated Sasori..... and Lady chio did nothing? come on! Sakura would've died less then one minute if chio wasn't there.
Shikamaru did defeat Hidan after he had a week of prep time, hell he could defeat anyone with that much time to come up with a plan.
Choji took down Asuma and Kakzuzu to allow them to be sealed.... in other words he defeated them.
what choji did with his buttlerflies wings it is all that he had ever done in 542 chapters.
Shikamaru: Part one. Lead the rescue Sasuke mission and almost got his whole team killed luckly the sand Ninjas saved him.
Part two. Let Asuma sensei die cause he was worthless.
after a week, came back with a plan to defeat Asuma's killer.... shikamaru resume isn't that impressive. Shino, Neji hasn;t done anything in part two.
