    Re: WHERE THE HELL ARE THOSE ROOKIES?

    I'm glad somebody made this thread, since I have thought about this for ages.
    Firstly, we shouldn't be surprised that the K12 aren't doing a thing.
    You should have noticed after they made that Team 8 thing.

    Kiba, Shino and Hinata got nearly zero time to shine in terms of fighting.
    Tenten is still the only K12 member without a surname. It's clear Kishi doesn't consider her important. Cross her out.
    Neji and Lee. Kishi hasn't given Neji his own few pages to show his strength for ages. same with Lee.

    I just gave up on seeing them ages ago. The signs are crystal clear that Kishi is done with them.
    And think about how much Power lvl leaping they will have to do.
    The strongest are Neji, Sai, Shino and possibly Shika. Lee and Choji are the underestimated ones, but all of these guys are the average Jonin lvl at best.
    Sakura just hits things hard, Tenten I don't need to explain, Hinata has always needed some work, Ino I won't need to explain either.

    So if they appear now, most of them would die, or just about survive on the floor.
    I'd much rather Kishi did a set of pages where they were all saying "We're putting all our faith in you... Naruto..."
    As oppose to running to him only to get killed.
    I'm a fan of Neji, Shikamaru, Sai, Shino and Lee, and them running to Naruto's fight spells death.

    So, from your point of view, madara fought the kages on Monday.

    Then naruto/bee and obito fought each other on Tuesday.

    While the konoha 12 run to where naruto is on Wednesday.

    Then GA I and kakashi arrived at naruto's location on Thursday.

    Then madara arrived to where obito is on Friday.

    So now, you're wondering where the hell are the rookies because they're been running to find naruto from Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. That's almost three days. With that, you're doubting kishi's timeline.

    Re: WHERE THE HELL ARE THOSE ROOKIES?

    ^
    I think the bigger issue is that while some characters like Naruto, Madara, Sasuke, Kakashi & Gai and Juugo & Suigetsu crossed large distances in a matter of a few panels or chapters, the rookies seem to be lost somewhere in nirvana.

    It doesn't matter if all of the stuff he mentioned happened in 5 minutes or 5 days, fact remains the rookies are moving ridiculously slow compared to the distances other characters have crossed during the same time window.

    One could argue that some guys like Naruto, Bee, Madara and Sasuke/Itachi moved incredibly fast, but what about the more average guys like Kakashi, Suigetsu and Juugo? It just doesn't make sense.

    Re: WHERE THE HELL ARE THOSE ROOKIES?

    Maybe the location of kakashi's unit isn't that far from naruto and bee.

    And the location of one of orochimaru's hideout isn't that far either to the cave where kabuto fought the uchiha bros.

    Does kishi really need to be in exact details of everything?

    Kishi did make sure that the cave where kabuto is, isn't that far from orochimaru's hideout.

    And so is kakashi's unit to the place where naruto and bee fought obito.

    It isn't a plothole or bad writing at all. He plan that and that's his story.

    Or suigetsu just asked jugo to used his ultra supersonic 10 main cumbustion space rocket transformation fueled by natural energy to find sasuke.

    ---------- Post added at 11:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:17 PM ----------

    Or maybe the rookies are still fighting the white zetsu on their way to naruto's location.

    Problem is Kakashi was in the same unit as for example Sai. Kakashi left that unit and is now at Narutos location, while Sai joined up with the Rookies... so there realy can't be that much difference in traveling distance.

    And yes, Kishi should watch out for such things and avoid them as good as possible, because a story is only as good as its believable... too many illogical slip-ups and it starts ruining the immersion, which in turn diminishes the enjoyment one gets from the reading experience.

    Its compareable to the effect of a movie with an overall good script but terrible actors, no matter how good the background story is, the bad acting will ruin it because it makes every action appear forced, unnatural and ridiculous. Only difference is in this case the script is more to blame then the actors.

    We don't really know the exact details of that. But judging from the anime, both kakashi and gai are separated from their group or maybe sai just used his ink birds to flew them to where naruto is.

    And now that the juubi and madara are alive, I doubt the white zetsu would not going to protect them. They're maybe the reason why the rookies are nowhere to be found. And I think kishi isn't done yet for his story and yet some of you already giving their opinions. Just give him the time to explain everything.

    Or maybe the HQ sent for kakashi and GAi first to naruto and bee to protect them before ino's dad talked to the rookies.

    Or the HQ already asked both kakashi and gai to back up naruto and bee even though their squad are still fighting the other legendary swordmans.

    So apparently Kakashi and Gai can move at the speed of light like Naruto....and the Rookies are just slow as hell...

    This kind of shows Kishimoto's amazing command at keeping track of things. Or they probably got killed along they way by some flying around debris.

    Re: WHERE THE HELL ARE THOSE ROOKIES?

    I'd rather not see the Rookies right now, because it would be stupid if they would come alive after seeing the Juubi
    Naruto, I can understand, Bee same thing, Gai & Kakashi too, but fucking rookies ? Hell no

    The only ones who can come are Sasuke and Orochimaru

    Why couldn't the rookies be saved by the same asspulls that are keeping the others around? Now we have a Kyuubi battery. Look at Gai and Kakashi who only survived thanks to Naruto. They are not living gods. They are jonin. If Gai and Kakashi can be there and not get squashed, then so can the rookies.

    What they do is up to Kishi. But given they have been kept out of the manga for so long, while Naruto, Kakashi, Gai, Sasuke, Itachi, Kirabi, etc have been given lots of screentime, it better be epic and worth their absence. Kishi said in his interview that everyone would shine. So let's see the rookies and Naruto's generation finally shine.

    We waited way too long to see them again. To the point where fans are making jokes about where the heck the army is. Even Kishi can't drag this out any longer.
