Why does Sasuke have his MS techniques inverted? IIRC, Itachi had Tsukuyomi in the left eye en Amaterasu in the right, and Sasuke has them diferent. Any thoughts on that?
I've been thinking about something lately, more than usual. One of the themes in Naruto is that "the new generation always surpass the old one". But I ask, how the hell are people gonna surpass the current generation? Or more specifically Naruto and Sasuke?
I mean, there's got to be a limit to surpassing others. You can't endlessly surpass others, and it's rather ridiculous in my opinion. Naruto and Sasuke are already absurdly strong, and they're only 16!! They're mere teenagers. I can't even begin to imagine how powerful they could be at let's say 30 years old. Their power is gonna be absurd, granted they even live that long. Maybe a way Kishi is going to solve this problem in is to make both Naruto and Sasuke die at the end, though I doubt it. The rest of that generation seem "surpassable", perhaps except Gaara.
I seriously feel sorry for Naruto's kid if he ever gets one (he should!). The brat has huge shoes to fill.
surpassing doesn't always mean in power, but also in ideals. Sure the next generation probably won't live up to Naruto or Sasuke, but they'll have a completely different view on the world, which is what Naruto is trying to do right now to the ninja world: change how everyone thinks of it. Surpassing might also mean that they want a better future for their children
Yeah it certainly can, but in the context Kakashi said it in it definitely sounded power related. It was like he said to Kakuzu "Lulz you lost because Naruto ar new generation". I dunno, I always felt like it was power related, but you might be on to something.
I think that if Yondaime was around, Naruto would be a complete beast already, instead of a sniveling little girl.
Is that how you guys interpreted what Fukusaku said about Naruto with Jiraiya and the Fourth? Because the way I see it, 1. We didn't know too much about the 4th's ideals, and 2. Naruto hadn't yet begun to really do anything ideal-wise, other than pound Asura-Pain into the ground. Which leads me to believe that he meant power. How? I don't know.
errrr I really don't think Naruto had surpassed Jiraiya and Minato in terms of power at that point. Maybe close to Jiraiya, but LOL not Minato. No way in hell. So I have no clue what Kishi meant by that line, probably trying to hype Naruto up.
In hindsight, people like Minato, Jiraiya, Orochimaru, Itachi, etc all must have been seen as unsurpassable, but Naruto and Sasuke are beginning to prove that notion wrong in many ways.
Konohamaru became the youngest ninja ever to complete a Rasengan, and he was only taught the principles by Naruto it would seem.
So, in a way, everything that happens now with the current characters is certainly surpassable in one way or another. There is no telling what the future will hold in the Narutoverse, or to put it better, what other insane hacks Kishi has up his sleave to make characters even more powerful lol.
So IMO, I think Naruto is closer to surpassing his father than his sensei.
