8 OF THE STRONGEST JUTSU FROM ‘NARUTO’

Which jutsu is your favourite?

Which jutsu is your favourite?

  1. Susanoo

    1.png
    When activated, Susanoo forms around its user and becomes an extension of their will – acting and attacking on their behalf

  2. Rasengan

    2.png
    Essentially, the Rasengan is a is a spinning ball of chakra formed and held in the palm of the user’s hand

  3. Wind Style: Rasen-Shuriken

    3.png
    Like the Wind Release: Rasengan, the user has the help of two shadow clones in the Rasenshuriken’s formation. The user provides the chakra while one clone helps keep the chakra contained and the other clone adds their wind nature. However, unlike the Wind Release: Rasengan, there is an additional shape transformation added to the Rasenshuriken, creating four large points around the Rasengan core (giving the appearance of a shuriken)

  4. Reaper Death Seal

    The Reaper Death Seal is a sealing technique used to call upon the power of the Shinigamie

  5. Reanimation Jutsu

  6. 8 Inner Gates

    6.jpg
    The Eight Gates are eight specific places on a person’s Chakra Pathway System which limit the overall flow of chakra within a person’s body. By completing intense training, one can learn how to open these gates to allow the user to surpass their own physical limitations (at the cost of extreme damage to their body)

  7. Amaterasu

    7.jpg
    Amaterasu is the highest form of Fire Release. Once created, it can burn for seven days and the flames cannot be extinguished by anything (other than by the user). This jutsu is said to be the ‘fires from hell’ and burn ‘as hot as the sun itself.’ Amaterasu can burn any material (including other flames) until only ash remains

  8. Chidori

    Chidori is the concentration of lightning chakra around the user’s hand

 

10 FACTS ABOUT DEATH NOTE YOU SHOULD KNOW

“Because I was bored” – Ryuk

“Because I was bored” – Ryuk

  1. L’s surname, Lawliet, is pronounced as ‘low light’

    1.png

  2. Ohba had to kill of Naomi Misora early. Initially, he wanted a cool female character to balance out the heavy-male cast but she ended up being too smart – piecing the Kira case together faster than he anticipated

  3. The font L uses is Old English Text MT

    3.png

  4. L holds objects the way he does to get minimal fingerprints on them – a habit he picked up from being a detective for so long

    4.jpg

  5. Light and L are pretty much depicted as opposites – right down the fact that Light uses a PC and L uses a Mac

    5.jpg

  6. In episode 2, when the International Criminal Police Organization begin their meeting you can see that they each had a sign that said their nationality and name on them. All the names are actually names of famous soccer players from each of their respective countries

    6.jpg

  7. After Light and L’s fight in episode 18, many fans asked if L was using capoeira (which is a form of dance fighting). Ohba hadn’t intended for L to be using similar techniques, but he liked the idea so much he declared it canon

    7.jpg

  8. In the Death Note pilot manga, there’s a special tool known as the Death Eraser. It can erase names in the Death Note and revive everyone who had been killed by the Death Note

    8.png

  9. Although in Death Note 13: How to Read, L’s intelligence is ranked below Light’s and Near’s, when Ohba was asked about this he replied saying that the smartest is actually, “L, because the plot requires it”

    9.jpg

  10. Near and Mello were almost L’s twin sons. Ohba had considered this, but the idea was later put aside as he felt it was too out of L’s character. Although… Mello did inherit L’s sweet tooth and Near was given the hobby of stacking objects as a development from L’s habit of stacking sugar cubes

4 DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TOKYO GHOUL MANGA AND ANIME

You know… aside from most of the storyline of √A

You know… aside from most of the storyline of √A

WARNING: SOME SPOILERS AHEAD

  1. The obvious one – in the manga Kaneki forms a resistance against Aogiri, while in the anime he joins Aogiri
    1.PNG
    This really is what propels the anime and manga in different directions regarding the storyline of √A. However, both conclude in the same way, presumably so that the director will be able to use content from the manga in RE:

     

  2. Some of the chronology has been changed2.PNG
    This includes events such as when Kaneki meets Tsukiyama (in the anime they meet after the death of Hinami’s parents) and the fact that Jason is introduced way later in the anime

     

  3. There are also more trivial differences – such as Kaneki and Rize talking about their blood type on their way home and Kaneki ‘fighting’ back against Rize by trying to stab her Kagune with a pen

    3.jpg
    There are some more major differences made though, and they negatively affect character development. It’s more the smaller things adding up that really make the difference… Despite this, both the anime and manga do have the same conclusion

  1. The anime is heavily censored. Most noticeably in the scenes where Jason tortures Kaneki…4.gif
    Apart from fight scenes being blacked out in parts to avoid too much carnage and gore, many have stated that this censorship means that we miss out on a lot of the emotional content too. This statement is quite justified as the anime completely leaves out some of the things Jason did to torture Kaneki… The anime favours a more condensed, action-filled storyline while (arguably) the manga’s strong suit is its character development, particularly that of Kaneki’s
