    A lot of people say, in defense of Itachi's god-like status, that he was the greatest academy student... ever. Now, I'm an Itachi fan, but I watched the anime, and it didn't say that at all. The academy teacher said that they haven't had a genius like Itachi SINCE. That is more believable. Now, I don't know what it say's in the manga ... however, that is what the anime say's...

    Can anyone clear this up for me?

    Yup, he is the greatest academy student ever. This was verified by njt in his translation thread.

    The anime is wrong.

    Because SOMETIMES they want to confirm if what was said in the anime, was said in the manga.

    Quite a lot of people, myself included, watched anime up to a point and then dived right into the new manga without reading the old chapters. It's easier to ask about a small detail than to read all the previous manga :)

    Though, for future reference, these kinds of questions is what the Quick Question Quick Answer Thread is for.

    If your copy of the anime was by Dattebayo than that might explain it.

    I believe AnimeOne's translation was accurate.

    Why would it have been Itachi? I always thought the best Academy student would have been Kakashi, seeing how he graduated earlier than Itachi.

    also Kakashi graduated when the leaf was at war so I am sure they push the better students quicker through the ranks than they normally would like to

    Eh? :huh

    Thats true, but they wouldn't have graduated someone that didn't have the skills needed to survive in a war. Especially when one held the potential that Kakashi did. It would have been just a waste to rush his graduation only to have him die in combat before reaching his peak.

    Thats now, but the question is the best Academy Student. Itachi isn't an Academy student now.

    If it is the best student the Academy has produced, then it would be Yondaime Hokage for me to. But, the way I see the question is; The best Academy Student. Like, who was the best student while they were in the Academy. And, assuming the logic of 'the better ones get through it faster' is correct, Kakashi would be it (To our knowledge).

    Itachi the best Academy Student ever, eh?

    Admittedly, I never picked that up before. Oh wells, I suppose it's believable enough, if njt said it was.

    But Yondaime is teh gratest talent ever!!!!11!!eleven1!

    Where are those people now?

    That time when Kakasi was chunnin and jounin Kanoha was in it's worse state (by military power) in history. That was stated by Yondaime. That's why he graduated so fast, normaly he would take few years more.

    They said that Itachi was the greatest Academy student since it's founding. This includes among geniuses such as the Sannin (with Orochimaru), Kakashi, and Yondaime.

    The only people who would be exempt from that among the legendary shinobi from Konoha would be Sandaime, Danzou, the White Fang, presumably Uchiha Madara, Shodai, and Nidaime, since Nidaime was the one who founded the Academy, and obviously none of his contemporaries ever went to it.

    Why is there even a debate?
    I mean it's stated in the manga and that's a 100% fact.

    Kakashi graduated the academy at an earlier age than Itachi, also if I'm not mistaken he was also the youngest chuunin. I think this matter should be taken into consideration. Itachi was not the greatest academy student ever. Maybe since Kakashi? Dunno, and I don't care to re-read the chapter.

    Problem with this is that Kakashi graduated during war-time and while the academy might not have allowed a student to graduate before they were ready, they would have been giving those pupils much harsher training,

    i.e:

    Peace time: Academy hours 9:00-3:00, fairly relaxed classes and less pressure to do well.

    War Time: Academy Hours 9:00-7:00, Very demanding and advanced classes and pressure to perform well.

    Did the Sannin even go? They "Graduated" at age 6 and Sasuke didn't go until he was 8.

    And what about Sarutobi? He's registered Konoha ninja 200 about whereas Naruto is 13, 000 something.
