    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 [IMG]

    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.. [IMG]

    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 [IMG]
    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... ==;[IMG]. 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.

    :::Secret character creation sketches:::

    I took some (crappy) photos of the sketches Kishimoto did to create the grown-up versions of his characters. 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...

    Pakkun: He doesn't like them.

    Naruto: Uuhmm...

    Naruto: Well, then tell me about it, about how it's like!

    Deidara's using forbidden jutsu for detonating his clay.
    Deidara used to be a well known great artist in his village (Iwagakure = Rock village).
    Deidara loved to stay in the Akatsuki, because he thought all of the Akatsuki members are kind of artistic and is easy to get a chance to fight against a strong enemy by catching Biju.

    His last jutsu is called "CO" (not zero, O) - I assume it's the self-destructing one

    Black Blood Puppets Sea that can destroy a country.

    A puppeteer's strength is measured by the number of puppets he can use at the same time. 10 puppets (total number of fingers a person has) is the peak/limit. But Sasori has overturned that common sense of the jutsu, by connecting the puppets to a core inside his body and controlling their motions through his determination/mind. So he can control a hundred puppets at a time. Its power can destroy a country.

    Hidan

    [IMG]




    Hidan hails from Yugakure (the Village Hidden Amongst Hot Springs), the village purported to have forgotten war.
    Even as the Great Wars disappeared from the world and the Hidden Villages were scaled back as military powers, those with an abundance of nature and tourist resources gained positive position in the new times. Hidan, who had lived as a shinobi constantly starved for strife, grew frustrated and discontent with this new pacifism, eventually directing his feelings at the village itself.
    It was inevitable that the newly found religion of Jashin would set its eyes on him.
    Thou shalt massacre thy neighboor.
    The religion's teachings would prove be abundant with elements that affirmed Hidan's own desires.

    Kakuzu was given the mission to assassinate the Hokage, but was defeated by the Mokuton jutsu. The next sentence says something like he returned to his village barely alive. Apparently the forbidden jutsu Kakuzu used to get the hearts or whatever is called "Jiongu". The kanji split up mean something like "Earth Hatred Fear"

    All that awaited him (when he returned from his mission to kill the Hokage) was the dishonor of failing his mission and heavy punishment. Feeling intense hatred for village's cruel deeds after he risked his life for it (or something along those lines), he broke out of prison.

    After that is where he learns the forbidden jutsu and kills the village leaders. jutsu and kills the village leaders.

    First of all, Seishitsu Henka 性質変化 (manipulation of (chakra) elements)
    Seishitsu Henka is when chakra is added to elements like fire or wind to create a more powerful effect. Though individual talent is needed to master this, most people are able to master one such element easily. Among the jounins, many are able to master at least two elements.

    Fire: Burns everything it touches, a high temperature chakra that is like fire. Can burn objects and like the wind element, it is a specialised offensive type of chakra.

    Wind: A chakra that cuts through everything like a blade. When used on special ninja weapons or deployed in jutsu, it is best for short to middle distance offensive attacks.

    Lightning: Easy to spread out and suitable for jutsu that are middle to long distance in offense. When used with metal based weapons, the effects get multiplied!

    Earth: Has the ability to change the hardness and composition of all objects. A person who masters this element can make an object to be as solid as metal or soft as clay in his jutsu.

    Water: It is very compatible the diverse "Form Modification". Whether it is in the form of a fog for masking your form or to trap someone in a tsunami, its auxilliary capability is very high.

    Keitai Henka (形態変化) (manipulation of shape/form)
    Keitai Henka manipulates the chakra form itself to create the "shape" of the ninjutsu and controls the power and area effect of the chakra. While Seishitsu Henka emphasizes and brings out the form of the chakra's elements, this particular technique is largely dependent on the user's conceptualizations, the skill's system, method of mastering it, etc. Many of the skills now are the results of the achievements of the earlier users.

    Answering the question "Is there anything interesting in Itachi's profile, for example about his illness?"

    About Itachi, let's see.. I browsed the entry (it's a bit long, I didn't read it fully, but I think my overview was decently thorough XD) and most of it just says what we already know, that is Itachi's past, what he did for the village, Sasuke etc. It doesn't say anything about his illness, his blindness or such :/ It doesn't even say anything about how he obtained his Mangekyou in detail or about Shisui, which I would've actually liked to know.. I still hope we will find out one day...

    The only thing that might be interesting to know, or well, that might be useful to explain what happened in the manga, is what it says under "Naruto" and "Mangekyou Sharingan".
    Under "Naruto" it says that Itachi saw Naruto as the one person able to save Sasuke and the village, that's why he told him what he did and "he put his hopes in him". And I guess also why he gave him some of his strength, though that isn't mentioned. This piece of info doesn't surprise me, but maybe some people were wondering...
    Under "Mangekyou Sharingan" it says "He sacrificed himself and by having his younger brother witness his death he left him the 'Mangekyou Sharingan'. 'I will always exist, with you'... Itachi decided to continue to protect Sasuke even after his death." Judging by how it's written, it looks like the point (to get the Mangekyou, I mean) is not Sasuke killing Itachi, but Sasuke seeing Itachi die.

    Lower Left Text:
    The expressions of Pain are always devoid of life. One is incapable of finding any form of emotion in his face.

    Pain Page 2

    Text Lead:
    Countless mysteries maintain the "undefeated" status of this god...

    Entry 1:
    Rinnegan

    Text Body:
    The "Rinnegan", the doujutsu (eye technique) said to have been the origin of ninjutsu. Presently, not even a portion of the abilities generated through this most supreme of doujutsu, possesed by Pain, is certain. What is obvious, however, is that the Rinnegan serves as a great hint in identifying who or what Pain truly is. In the past, one of the Sannin, Jiraiya, raised and mentored a young boy named Nagato; the reason being that this boy too was in possession of the Rinnegan. Currently, it is not reasonable to assume that he and Pain are indeed one in the same. Still, judging from Pain's conversation with Jiraiya, and given that Konan is by Pain's side, at the absolute least it is certain that there is some form of connection between Nagato and Pain.

    Caption Pointing Nagato:
    Nagato is reported to have wielded all five basic [chakra] elements. Is this the power of the Rinnegan...?

    Nagato Pane Text:
    Gifted with the capacity to become versed in all major ninjutsu... at only ten years of age he mastered countless jutsu of all kinds

    Caption Pointing Pain:
    One of the animals summoned by Pain. A common feature is to be noted between the eyes of Pain and his summons. Specifically, all of their eyes exhibit the same pattern of concentric circles.

    Entry 2:
    Pain Rikudou (The Sex Paths of Pain)

    Text Body:
    That which was summoned by Pain was Pain Rikudou, five additional shinobi, each with their own Rinnegan. Not only do the six of them possess unique and fearsome abilities such as "jutsu negation" and "body alteration*", but they also all share eyesight with one another. It is unclear whether or not this awesome power is the product of the Rinnegan.

    (*based on the scans of the abilities available - more specifically, based on their text - it looks like this is the Pain "rocket punch", or as its known in the databook, "kaiwan no hiya", lit. "strong-arm flaming arrow")

    Pain Page 3

    Entry 3:
    Immortality

    Text Body:
    Make use of what jutsu you may, a god cannot be killed. "Immortal", and thus "undefeated"... The lone Pain that was dragged into [Jiraiya's] barrier space did cease to be active, but whether this means he "died" or not remains uncertain.

    Caption Jiraiya Surprise:
    Jiraiya was absolutely certain he had ended their lives... yet Pain Rikudou came back to life, attacking him from behind.

    Pane Text:
    If I remember right, it was you who taught me not to let my guard down... Jiraiya-sensei.

    Entry 4:
    Previous Identities

    Text Body:
    One of the answers Jiraiya arrived at was the revelation that, beginning with Yahiko, a previous pupil of his own, all six bodies of Pain Rikudou held a resemblance to shinobi he had previously encountered. Through what twist of fate did they become Pain Rikudou... And why do they all have the Rinnegan.

    Caption Shinobi Faces:
    The previous identities of Pain Rikudou, as identified by Jiraiya. Among them is the face of Fuuma Ichizoku clan member, matching the rumors of the Amagakure shinobi.

    Entry 5:
    Weapons

    Text:
    Shared among Pain Rikudou are long black strips, serving as swords. The chakra of any individual pierced by this weapon is disrupted, a property not seen in any of the vast number of ninja weapons known to exist.

    Caption Blade:
    Extending from the arm of this cloak is Pain's weapon.

    Caption Jiraiya:
    Jiraiya after having been pierced by the weapon!! Along with a deep chill, he feels the presence of the Rinnegan gaze in his mind, and reels in fear!!
    Fat Pain
    Fat Pain's absorption ability is classified as a sealing technique that is not ranked. It's something like reversing the chakra flow from one's body and absorbing the chakra thrown by the opponent. In this way, the chakra is neutralised in a bottomless pit in his body and digested. And this regardless of the opponent's chakra element type. All gone, period.
    Smily Pain
    He can modify his body to make his wrist detachable and shot out like a missile. Chakra is focused at the joint to create a small explosion that propels the wrist/hand in a straight line towards the target. Its destructive power is strong enough to destroy a rock plate(?) easily. Chakra will protect the hand from getting hurt. Chakra at the joint can act like a magnet to attract and re-attach the hand.

    [IMG]
    "Pain gives to a subject a part of an Akatsuki member's chakra to create a sophisticated 'copy' that is used to fight in their place. The ability of the copy is proportional to the chakra that was given to it, and it's also possible to use the original's abilities. However, when the chakra is over the jutsu ends and the subject dies. It's a merciless jutsu that uses up even the subject's own chakra."

    The captions say:
    -"Pain is the one who decides the chakra quantity and performs the jutsu."
    -"With Shouten no Jutsu the copy is also able to use the same weapons and ninja tools as the original." (like for example Kisame's Samehada, ndt)
    -"After Shouten no Jutsu is used, the copy looks exactly the same as the original."
    -"Of course the copy can use the same ninjutsu as the original. Even the Uchiha clan's peculiar 'Katon - Goukakyuu no Jutsu' is perfectly recreated."

    EDIT: Oh I forgot, the jutsu has no difficulty rank, so I guess it's unique to Pain. I reckon it's a Rinnegan thing, although there's no "kekkei genkai" written on it.



    [IMG]
    The text says:
    "It can be performed by a maximum of 10 shinobi at the same time, that by focusing their minds together can start up the sealing statue. The 'absorbing chakra' radiating from its mouth extracts the bijuu's chakra and seals it. The whole process takes days to be performed by Akatsuki-level shinobi; average ninja wouldn't even be able to summon the statue."

    Caption: "The 'absorbing chakra' takes the shape of 9 dragons and seals the bijuu's chakra. When the sealing is complete, the statue awakens."
