Hey! its nice to see someone dig up this old thread again!
[Warning: most of the original theory is missing from the 1st post in this thread at the moment]
October 22, 2007 10:13 PM
agree with OP. i was surprised too see jiraiya having an 'ultimate form'. It just seems to be kishis way of visualising the fact that they're 'serious'. Im not sure if i like his repetitive use of...
October 22, 2007 09:44 PM
this is beyond debate - the answer must be 'no'.
- Firstly, there are the visual differences between the two eyes.
- Secondly, they were never identified by anyone in the manga as rinnegan. ...
September 05, 2007 09:38 AM
agreed, im looking forward to more information
February 03, 2007 07:10 PM
Golly it is nice to see someone put some intelligent reasoning into a discussion for a change.
I have long held the belief that there is no 'absolute power level' in naruto, and that all battles...
October 26, 2006 05:12 AM
sorry about the comment of him being the leader of the uchiha - its not stated anywhere that i can recall. i was mixing it up with the police force. i suppose my general argument remains unchanged...
October 25, 2006 06:02 AM
I agree that we have seen very little of the akatsuki's capabilities. Only sasori stands [or not, lololol] as a fully-showcased character in battle terms.
I also agree that 'strength' is a tricky...
October 12, 2006 12:23 AM
Huh? timing on raw release? isnt it just a wait-and-see thing? unless you are doing a messing-with-the-naruto-junkies thing...
September 25, 2006 11:27 AM
a view on where we are and where we may be going with the asuma and hidan fight:
i'm dissapointed that yet again akatsuki choose to fight at a disadvantage when it could easily be...

Turtle/tortise = summoning = ninjutsu
Gai is not exactly the same as Lee... Gai appears to be capable of some ninjutsu, but lee surpasses him in work ethic! Springtime of youth blossoms++!! *Waves...
September 21, 2006 04:42 AM
omfg, looks soo promising... i only hope its a good representation of the show! like, realistic-to-the show...
September 17, 2006 09:30 AM
All very good suggestions, thanks for the ideas. I will look into them and see if i can have a fiddle with the diagram.
Okay, its a while later, and i've looked into some of your...

From my theory:
September 15, 2006 01:31 PM
i've added some new evidence with quotes [inc chapter and page numbers], as well as touching some things up here and there. I hope to add a theory regarding the kyuubi seal...
September 15, 2006 01:21 PM
Yep yep, agreed. Doujutsu are techniques centered around the bloodline, which is centered around ones genetics/biology, which is decided at birth or through surgery.
September 15, 2006 10:44 AM
It makes sense to me too.
Finally someone is putting real emphasis on genetics, breeding and probability into the debate about bloodline limits.
Its exactly what i have...
September 14, 2006 08:22 AM
Perhaps people should try to distinguish between events that are recorded in the chapters and speculation in this thread? Like, if you want to say something is a fact then give a reference to prove...
September 13, 2006 03:06 PM
Again i agree with grusfix. I also agree that bloodlines most likely originate as a mutation.
There appear to be two main points to Segua's theory from which the rest is derived:
1. Kakashi can...
September 13, 2006 10:38 AM
In that case, we know that Maito Gai can use fire(flaming peacock or something vs. kisame clone)... *struggles to think of more*
September 13, 2006 10:07 AM
Sorry, i jumped the gun... missunderstood what you were trying to do. I thought you meant that "given that character A can only use element B then jutsu C must be element A-based".
I guess this...
September 13, 2006 09:45 AM
i dont think you can put such heavy restriction on character's elemental abilities. sharingan is not needed to learn additional elements.
Example: Asuma uses a fire jutsu in chapter 323 [spoilers...
September 12, 2006 11:23 PM
I agree with grusfix.
There is no evidence [so far in the series] to my knowledge that would support anyone but a bloodline user [genetic makup] to be able to combine two elements.
September 10, 2006 11:16 PM
I think you summed it up well! So many stories that would make great arcs... c'mon kishi!!!11oneonethree
September 10, 2006 11:06 AM
i vote yes because i want to see it. I think its possible he will show it too... i think its pretty sure that we will get at least some kyuubi backstory because he[kyuubi] recognised uchiha/sharingan...
September 10, 2006 03:22 AM
No worries, its a fair theory. I'll be interested to see how you go
September 09, 2006 12:04 PM
Was this outlined in a chapter somewhere? Like that the five elements are present in all chakras? Also, can you give the chapter where it talks about sasuke performing that fire jutsu? Or was it just...
September 09, 2006 09:25 AM
good point! no idea. maybe he release it at just the right time?
September 09, 2006 07:07 AM
I have a theory on How Chakra Works that offers detailed explanations of all of these ideas.
i'm of the opinion that chakra is a standard sort of medium, like blood. Everyones blood...
September 09, 2006 04:03 AM
I think this may have been me [322 predictions], though im sure others have put this argument forward before as well.
From what we've seem so far, most of the akatsuki are fairly specialised....

Its amazing to actually see the diversity of the members origins laid out on the page... a feather in the cap of this site, so to speak. As always, the internet is...
September 07, 2006 12:15 PM
haha, true true, especially when you consider that they are now both conviniently positioned right next to hidan...
also, i wonder what Kakuzu has up his sleeve... he must be highly deadly to kill...
September 07, 2006 12:00 PM
Such a cool chapter. Cant believe how akatsuki just keeps getting more and more bad-arse.
Naruto's training is also getting more bad-arse. Everything is just so cool!
Yay! Previous predictions...

a little more science:
this situation can be explained through the very basic principle of Ohms Law. Ohms law states that current(I), voltage(V) and resistance (R) are related by the expression:

Wonderful thread/posts Gigga. I have been feeling the same confusion, bordering on frustratiuon.
One thing that i really dont understand is how quickly people jump to conclusions, and even come...
September 02, 2006 06:54 AM
I can't let a post like this just slip by without some sort of logical refute. Sorry, i know this will all be off-topic but i just have to do it.
first off, im not sure if english is your first...
September 02, 2006 12:22 AM
I am hoping for what you are saying to be true as well.
I really believed it before ch321 - and was predicting exactly what you are saying - "anything BUT rasengan" - but it seems the evidence is...
September 01, 2006 04:57 AM
i would second that. i also agree with the order of events suggested here:
i dont see the wording of the translations an issue, either. I think by him saying 'copi' or whatever it doesnt have...
