Quote: Ok guys, I don't know if I should post it here or somewhere else. I haven't even reread it (it's laaaate), and I don't think it's polished enough to deserve a place in some Translation thread, but anyway, I thought it might be interesting to you. I bought the guidebook this morning and copied/translated some stuff from it. I basically took the post straight from my LiveJournal to post it here (after changing some tags obviously). Enjoy I included: a few character stats, a LOT of character height/weight/age/birthday data, name of previously unnamed charas/jutsu, translations of polls/rankings, Kishimoto creation sketches & comments, Q&A session, special 5 pages manga. It also contains (crappy) photos I took with my iBook's webcam. Sorry for the absence of thumbnails, I've had enough problem uploading the normal pictures already... (hypercrappy connection) This is the cover + back. I wonder why he drew Sasuke with the bandages and that random dress.. By the way, this guide covers the manga up until volume 43 included, thus it also has everything about Uchiha, Itachi's death, the story Madara tells Sasuke etc etc :::Some character stats::: This is a quick overview of some character's growth, that is their abilities in Sha no Sho compared to how they were in Tou no Sho (2nd guidebook). I know it's impossible to read and it's also pretty difficult to see the lines, but anyway, you mainly need to know what the 8 points are. Starting from the top, clockwise: -Ninjutsu -Taijutsu -Genjutsu -Intelligence -(Physical) Strength -Speed -Stamina -Seals Also, the charas in the lower left are (top>bottom, left>right): Neji, Shikamaru, Gaara, Rock Lee. Ok, well, I'll be kind enough to type the numbers XD; But only of the newest stats.. Naruto: Nin 4 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 2 - Int 3 - Str 3.5 - Spe 3.5 - Sta 5 - Sea 1.5 Sasuke: Nin 5 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 4 - Int 3.5 - Str 3.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Sea 4 Sakura: Nin 3 - Tai 3 - Gen 3.5 - Int 4 - Str 3 - Spe 3 - Sta 2.5 - Sea 4 Shikamaru: Nin 3.5 - Tai 2 - Gen 3 - Int 5 - Str 2 - Spe 2.5 - Sta 3 - Sea 3 Rock Lee: Nin 0 - Tai 5 - Gen 1 - Int 2 - Str 4.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Sea 1 Neji: Nin 4 - Tai 4.5 - Gen 2 - Int 3 - Str 2.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Sea 3 Gaara: Nin 5 - Tai 2 - Gen 3.5 - Int 4 - Str 2.5 - Spe 3 - Sta 5 - Sea 4 Most of the points definitely don't surprise me. Naruto's intelligence grew a lot.. He's almost as smart as Sasuke (-0.5 points) XD Sakura is smarter than both (0.5 points higher than Sasuke). I'm surprised about Neji, I thought he was smarter Naruto should really improve his seal ability... Maybe now that he's been training for Rasen Shuriken etc he will also do that.. Sakura improved a lot, though apparently, as strong as she looks, her taijutsu and physical strength are still lower than the other boys' (well, yes, she's a woman indeed and most of her strength depends on her chakra control, but anyway). :::Characters - Height & Weight (& Age/Birthday)::: This totally crooked chart (I mean, the photo) compares the height of the various characters. Sasuke looks quite taller than Naruto, although he's actually only 2 cm taller.. Maybe it's the shoulders.. Anyway, here's a list of the height/weight of the characters shown in the chart (it's in centimeters/kilograms, sorry, I cannot convert it for you... ==;. I also included the age and birthday for those ones you might be wondering about XD By the way, Naruto & co. are listed as 16 years old. Naruto: 166.0cm x 50.9kg Sasuke: 168.0cm x 52.2kg Sakura: 161.0cm x 45.4kg Chouji: 172.3cm x 87.5kg Shikamaru: 170.0cm x 53.4kg Ino: 162.2cm x 46.0kg Neji: 172.1cm x 54.2kg Tenten: 164.0cm x 47.3kg Rock Lee: 172.0cm x 54.7kg Sai: 172.1cm x 53.3kg (17 years old, bday 11/25) Yamato: 178.0cm x 58.4kg (26 years old, bday 8/10) Kakashi: 181.0cm x 67.5kg Kiba: 169.1cm x 52.5kg Hinata: 160.0cm x 45.0kg Shino: 175.1cm x 56.6kg Akamaru: 127.2cm x 80.5kg (7 years old XD) Here is the same info for other charas you might be interested about (Japanese alphabetical order, except for the Hokage, who are where the "ho" would be): Kushina Uzumaki: 165.0cm x 47.0kg (age unknown, bday 7/10) Itachi Uchiha: 178.0cm x 58.0kg Madara Uchiha: only known thing is his bday, 12/24 Iruka Umino: 178.0cm x 66.2kg Orochimaru: 172.0cm x 57.3kg Kakuzu: 185.0cm x 63.2kg (91 years old, bday 8/15) Gaara: 166.1cm x 50.9kg Karin: 162.6cm x 45.8kg (16 years old, bday 6/20) Kankurou: 175.0cm x 61.2kg Konohamaru: 141.1cm x 36.9kg Konan: 169.4cm x 45.3kg (age unknown, bday 2/20) Sasori: 164.1cm x 47.3kg (35 years old, bday 11/8) Asuma Sarutobi: 190.8cm x 81.6kg Shizune: 168.0cm x 49.2kg Juugo: 202.1cm x 75.8kg (18 years old, bday 10/1) Jiraiya: 191.2cm x 87.5kg Shin (Sai's "brother" XD): 174.0cm x 55.4kg (age unknown, bday 9/6) Zetsu: only known thing is his height, 177.0cm Danzou: 170.0cm x 52.7kg (72 years old, bday 1/6) Chiyo: 149.1cm x 39.1kg (73 years old, bday 10/15) Deidara: 166.0cm x 50.8kg (19 years old, bday 5/5) Teuchi: 170.0cm x 64.0kg (47 years old, bday 8/10) (I know you just wanted to know about him 8D) Temari: 165.0cm x 47.9kg Tobi: 175.0cm x 55.9kg (anything else is unknown; and yes, he and Madara have different profiles) Yugito Nii: 170.2cm x 50.8kg (29 years old, bday 7/24) Hidan: 177.1cm x 56.8kg (22 years old, bday 4/2) Pain (by the way, in romaji it's clearly written PAIN, not "Pein" ): 176.5cm x 57.2kg (age and bday unknown) Suigetsu Hoozuki: 177.4cm x 57.0kg (16 years old, bday 2/18) Hashirama Senju: 185.1cm x 74.0kg (age unknown, bday 10/23) Tobirama Senju (second Hokage ): 182.3cm x 70.5kg (age unknown, bday 2/19) Hiruzen Sarutobi (third Hokage): 163.1cm x 50.6kg (69 years old, bday 2/8) Minato Namikaze: 179.2cm x 66.1kg (age unknown, bday 1/25) Tsunade: 163.1cm x 48.9kg Kisame Hoshigaki: 195.0cm x 83.1kg (32 years old, bday 3/18) Maito Gai (yes, I do know the guidebooks have him as "Might Guy" XD): 184.0cm x 76.0kg Kabuto Yakushi: 177.0cm x 65.0kg Kurenai Yuuhi: 169.1cm x 54.4kg :::Character names & quick ages::: These are actually featured in the above part as well, but anyway... New names we found about: -Sai's "brother" was called Shin -Madara's brother was called Izuna -Fukasaku's wife is called Shima -After finding out about Hashirama Senju and Minato Namikaze, now we know about the second and third Hokage's names as well, that is: Tobirama Senju and Hiruzen Sarutobi -The names of Kakashi's dogs: Pakkun (this one you already know ), Shiba (the one with the black crest), Bisuke (little one with droopy eyes), Akino (one with glasses), Guruko (little one with Naruto-like whiskers), Uuhei (one with bandages), Urushi (one with not black crestlike fur), Buru (the big bulldog) -Sai's senpai from Ne (who we see when he hands Sai the envelope from Danzou) is called Hyou -The two guys from the Rain village, who Jiraiya questioned: Yuudachi (he got transformed), Ryuusui -The guy in Orochimaru's lair that Suigetsu kills ignoring Sasuke's orders: Takishi -The four women who were bathing in the hot springs Yamato & team 7 went to: Emiru, Sumire, Nae, Yui -Nekobaa's granddaughter: Tamaki And here's the age of some new charas: -Sasori: 35 -Deidara: 19 -Kakuzu: 91 -Hidan: 22 -Suigetsu: 16 -Juugo: 18 -Karin: 16 -Sai: 17 -Yamato (Tenzou): 26 :::Jutsu names::: Some jutsu names you might want to know. Mostly jutsu whose name we didn't hear in the manga. -Ukojizai no Jutsu: Pain uses this jutsu to make rain fall. -Kagura Shingan: Karin uses this jutsu to check a vast range around her. It's labeled as "hiden". -Kagerou: the jutsu Zetsu uses to vanish and reapper in/from the ground. -Kamui: the jutsu Kakashi uses with his Mangekyou against Deidara. It appears to be an original jutsu of his (that is, other people with other Mangekyou Sharingan probably can't do it). -Karasubunshin no Jutsu: the bunshin jutsu Itachi uses to transform into crows XD It appears to be a normal jutsu, I mean, no hiden, no kekkei genkai XD -Kishou Tensei: the jutsu Chiyo uses to revive Gaara. Level S. -Kyoumen Shuuja no Jutsu: Pain used this jutsu to make team Gai clones appear. -Kirin is labeled as S-level. -Kuchiyose - Gamamise no Jutsu: Jiraiya used this jutsu to create the fake pub in the Rain village XD -Kuchiyose - Raikou Kenka: Sasuke used this jutsu to summon weapons in the fight against Itachi. -Gufuu Suika no Jutsu: Naruto & Yamato's joint jutsu used against Kakuzu. -Saikan Chuushutsu no Jutsu: the jutsu Sakura used to extract Sasori's poison from Kankurou's body. -CO (the second one is "O", not "zero"): Deidara's last jutsu. -Shikigami no Mai: Konan's jutsu when she was floating in the air and her body transformed into paper. -Shikoku Fuuin: the jutsu Jiraiya used to leave his last message on Fukasaku's back. -Jagei Jubaku: the jutsu Sasuke used to make snakes coil around Juugo and Suigetsu to stop them. It's actually Orochimaru's, so I don't know if he's able to use it now.. -Shouten no Jutsu: the jutsu Pain used to transform random men into Itachi and Kisame. -Suika no Jutsu: Suigetsu uses this jutsu to transform into water. -Suiton - Gousuiwan no Jutsu: Suigetsu used this jutsu once to make his left arm bigger. -Sennou Sousa no Jutsu: Sasori used this jutsu to control Yura's mind. -Chidori Eisou: when you see Sasuke shooting a laserbeam-like Chidori from his hand, well, it's this jutsu XD; -Tensha Fuuin - Amaterasu: this is how the Amaterasu Itachi sealed into Sasuke's left eye is called. -Fuuton - Rasenshuriken is labeled as S-level. -Magen - Kasegui no Jutsu: the jutsu both Itachi and Sasuke used against Orochimaru when he tried to enter their minds. -Yamata no Jutsu is labeled as S-level (the user is Orochimaru, not Sasuke) ::olls & Rankings::: The results of some polls XD In most of them the male/female rate is 4:6 or 3:7...

I'll also roughly translate (aka "the meaning is fine, just ignore the horrible English adaptation") what he says about them... Click the names to see the pictures. Note: the "LOLs" are actually in there, it's not my comment (though sometimes I do agree 8D). Naruto Uzumaki, Sakura Haruno, Sasuke Uchiha -Naruto: "The forehead protector is slightly wider" "Actually, the main characteristic of Naruto's clothes is his forehead protector. In the earlier version the line used to show the "thickness" of the metal and the line of the cloth part were very close, and that made it kind of difficult to draw the eyebrows that were right under that. For this reason, I made the cloth wider. This made both the metal's and the cloth's thickness visible, plus the eyebrows are a lot easier to draw. Besides that I also removed the rolled up part of Naruto's pants and changed his shoes from sandals to high-cut boots. Showing too much the ankle looked childish, so I tried to fix that." -Sakura: "Sakura changed from China-style dress to karate suit..." "I changed Sakura's clothes from the previous China-style ones to a more lively karate suite style. I gave her boots and gloves. The upper part, though, still has a Chinaesque feeling to it, so as to make her more feminine." -Sasuke: "I thought I had to make him look cool!" "I changed my mind a lot of times in my quest to make him look cool. I tried to put a "shimenawa" (the rope, ndt) around him to preserve Orochimaru's style.. I tried a turtleneck to show cleanliness.. I tried a military uniform.. In the end I just chose Japanese-style clothes and left his chest naked (LOL)." Sai, Shikamaru Nara, Chouji Akimichi, Shino Aburame -Sai: "I tried to make him look interesting to a certain extent by showing his belly (LOL)" "Since he's Sasuke's successor, I thought that he had to somehow look cool and interesting...The result is his exposed belly (LOL). I also made him look unbalanced on purpose by making the gloves different in length." -Shikamaru: "The focal point is the forehead protector on his arm" "I wanted him to be unique despite wearing a normal chuunin vest. That's why I decided to put his forehead protector on his arm, so that it wouldn't hide his peculiar hair line." -Chouji/Kiba: "One similar to his dad and a ninken rider" "As for Chouji, in the past I've drawn his father Chouza, so I thought he might just follow his style. Kiba rides Akamaru, so he has sweat-proof clothes. Like those of a ninken rider (LOL)." -Shino: "Even Shino's bag is stuffed with bugs" "I eventually decided that Shino must be dressed in layers (LOL). I decided not to show much his face and other parts of his body to make him look eerie. He's also a bug user, so even his backpack is full of bugs." Tenten, Akamaru, Ino Yamanaka, Hinata Hyuuga -Tenten: "Her design is my favorite" "Tenten wears a comfortable three-quarter China dress. I tried to think about the ease of movement when I drew it. This Tenten is my favorite design." -Akamaru: "Akamaru..... well, I just made him bigger" "I just made Akamaru bigger (LOL). His face is the same as before. I never decided a specific breed for him. I just thought of him as a dog that gets bigger and bigger and that would be able to carry Kiba around." -Ino: "She was full of bandages, so I removed them" "The previous Ino was covered in bandages, so I first removed those. Then I thought about the ease of movement, and since she's a girl I tried to leave some parts of her body exposed." -Hinata: "Hinata is cute-but-uncool (LOL)" "Hinata has to look simple, so I tried to cover all of her body and to give her a "provincial" feel. She's not interested in fashion... so I do want her to look cute, but in an unfashionable way. ...Cute-but-uncool (LOL)" Pain, Hidan, Konan, Zetsu -Pain: "I wanted coolness and danger" "He's Akatsuki's leader, so he has to look cool at least to a certain extent, but I also wanted him to look dangerous. Since his name is "Pain", I decided to put some piercings on his body. Kind of like a person who gives pain to himself". -Hidan: "Bones and a scythe remind of a shinigami" "Hidan uses curses and such, so I wanted him to look similar to a shinigami. That's why he carries a scythe and bones. I originally planned the scythe to have a lot of tricks, but I didn't have time to show all of them... (LOL)." -Konan: "Yeah, she's obscene... but she wears clothes (LOL)" "I'd thought since the beginning to have Konan as the only woman in Akatsuki, so I tried to make her somewhat obscene, but...... In truth, she wears the Akatsuki mantle above that (LOL). And then, she transforms into paper right away..." -Zetsu: "I originally wanted to make Akatsuki into a group of monsters" "Zetsu is modeled after an insectivorous plant. I originally wanted Akatsuki to be a group of individuals with close to no human characteristics. I decided to make Zetsu half black and half white to better show his double personality." I forgot to take photos of the page with the Nibi and Sanbi, but anyway... -Nibi: "If it was just a cat it would be too cute..." "There's actually a youkai (Japanese folklore monster, ndt) called "Nekomata", so the Nibi was easy to imagine. With two tails.. But if it was just a cat it would look too cute, so I tried to make him more beastlike, sort of similar to a tiger or lion, to make him look more powerful." -Sanbi: "I've always liked monsters (LOL)" "I've always liked monsters, youkai and huge creatures. With Sanbi I tried to mix many kinds of those. Its body recalls a turtle, and its tails are modeled after shrimps." :::Kishimoto Q&A Session::: I'll translate the very short Q&A session to which Kishimoto answered. It's 4am, ignore my horrible English. -------------------- **About the sensei** Q. How do you choose the characters' names? A. I think about Japanese nouns and decide which ones might be good as names. Q. What character would you like as your girlfriend? A. No one. It's characters I create, after all... Q. If you were a girl, who would you like as your boyfriend? A. Shikamaru. He's smart and looks like he might be successful in life. -------------------- -------------------- **About the characters** Q. Do members of Akatsuki pairs sleep somewhere at night? A. They get two single rooms. Q. Now that Gaara doesn't have the Ichibi anymore he's unable to use the sand, right? A. Both the sand and the rings around his eyes are there for good, they can't be taken away. Q. If a Hyuuga and an Uchiha had a child together, what eyes would s/he get? A. His right eye would be a Sharingan. Meaning that the left one would be a Byakugan! (LOL) Q. If I drank Suigetsu would I get diarrhea? A. He would just come out from your bottom. Q. Why is Naruto able to summon Gamakichi if he signed the contract with Gamabunta? A. Because signing a contract with Gamabunta means that he's able to summon not only him but any toad. Q. What is Naruto's "new erotic ninjutsu"...? A. I'd like to draw it one day. I can do it anytime, I just need the editor's approval. -------------------- -------------------- **About the mysteries** Q. Why did the Kyuubi's seal gradually fade? Q. Why was Naruto able to grow up to four tails? Q. What did Karin do to Sasuke in the past? Q. Is Kushina alive? Q. How did Kakashi awaken his Mangekyou Sharingan? A. It's a secret!! Just keep on reading the manga! -------------------- Some questions are really useless.. Though..... did SO many people ask about Naruto's new ero ninjutsu and what Karin did to Sasuke???? X°DDD Of course I also wanna know, but anyway... :::Original short manga::: And now, last but not least, I'll translate the 5 pages long original manga featured in the guide. I took (crappy) photos, please bear with me. Someone will definitely scan it more decently, sooner or later. Page 1-2 Page 3-4 Page 5 1p Title: Sha no Sho: ~Kakashi's face is finally unveiled "Special original manga by Kishimoto-sensei!!" Pakkun: What's the matter, Naruto? *look look* Naruto: Shhhh! Naruto: Don't speak so loud! Naruto: Listen... Today I secretly came here to ask you something. Pakkun: What? Naruto: I'm tired of waiting, I wanna know how Kakashi-sensei's face looks like! 2p Pakkun: Uh, you've never seen it? Naruto: So you have?? *excited* Pakkun: Of course. We are his ninken after all. *excited* Naruto: Do you have.. uhm, photos? Pakkun: Nope.. No photos exist. Pakkun: He doesn't like them. Naruto: Uuhmm... Naruto: Well, then tell me about it, about how it's like! Guruko: I'll explain it to you, just look at my thoughts. Guruko: Ok! This is Kakashi's face. *EXCITED* 3p Guruko: It's like this. Bisuke: No, it's like this. Urushi: Kekeke, no, it's this! Shiba: No no, like this. Akino: Nooo, it's like this, woof. Pakkun: You really have no memory. Pakkun: This is Kakashi's face! 4p Akino: ...That's right. Guruko: I-it's this, this! Uuhei: Yeah... It's this one. Bisuke: Oh yeah, it was like that! Naruto: S-so it was like this...! Naruto: Yesss! I must tell Sakura-chan~~! *dash* *tap* (on the paper cup) Ramen Kakashi: What's all this noise while I'm eating? 5p Kakashi: What? dogs: [Ok, so it wasn't exactly like that...] "Kakashi-sensei, please show us your face~!!" *The end* Ok, now I finished everything....
