    there is not much rain in naruto, however in this chapter when naruto is training there seems to be raining, is this because of the death of Asuma, i remebered that it rain in saindaimes funeral ceremony....

    is there a link there? or just coincidence

    Rain is a symbolic representation (and a major cliche in manga) of turning tides in a series. It can represent a death of someone important, closure to an arc, a dark foreshadowing, etc...there is a wide range of interpretations. Just know it's a fairly common cliche in the manga world.

    Yes, Sarutobi clan members have a strange sustance in their bodies that set free when they die and create rain. When the harvest in konoha seems bad they kill a Sarutobi to call the rain.

    Or yoou can ask OniTasku for a serious answer

    It's so far beyond cliche it's pratically a staple, like mourning clothes being black.

    It's not the size that matters, it's the volume and pressure of your bladder.

    It wasn't raining when Sarutobi died.
    It was raining when he was buried.

    it always rains when someonde dies... that's so natural.

    that's why, In the book I wrote, in the end of the war it was a sunny and hot day of summer... a sky with no clouds makes me sad.
