Well I knew I was gonna end up making a topic of this. And since most of Kimimaro has been shown, I figured it is time. Rep is appreciated, if you find this useful/interesting. This topic will not have any spoilers, and is not to have any spoilers of whats to come. All comparisons obviously are of Manga pages and Anime Episode Frames. No reason for any images of things from the Manga past the anime, as you cannot compare them yet. It has bothered me for quite some time how they censored Kimimaro's bone limit. Not so much the censoring, but that they don't show one of Kimimaro's great abilities. The ability to regenerate. I see in discussions/debates all the time from anime only watches, who use the butchered anime Kimimaro, in the debate rather than the manga version. I few things I will point out. -Kimimaro pulls out his own bones. He doesn't grow a bone out of his bones, when he takes bones out of his body. He literally takes his own bone out, then regrows that bone. -Kimimaro's flashback did not happen. Orochimaru and Kabuto discussed his clan, and it showed Kimimaro standing with a young Kimimaro. That is all. -Lee never did a ballet twirl and a little kick to Kimimaro. Lee popped up out of nowhere and did a Konoha Senpuu to Kimimaro's face. This is one of the few hits he ever gets in on Kimimaro. -Pre-Drunk Lee never landed a blow on Kimimaro. Besides the Konoha Senpuu sucker hit, to save Naruto. -Kimimaro didn't attack Naruto again after Lee appeared, there was no Lee stopping the bone sword. (although that was really cool) -Kimimaro didn't stop while he was slashing with his sword, when Rock Lee asked him to. That never happened. Rock Lee asked for a break in the battle, while he was like 10 or 20 feet away from Kimimaro. Kimimaro wouldn't stop mid-slash to let Rock Lee take medicine, where if he didn't, Lee would have been dead. -Drunken Lee only landed ONE hit on Kimimaro. Kimimaro couldn't hit Drunken Lee, and the ONE time Drunken Lee managed to land a hit on Kimimaro, he said it is impressive that he could land a hit. And then he took out the bone spikes. So in actuality, Drunken Lee wasn't very superior at all, as he could only manage one actual hit. -Drunken Lee never did the sleep-trick on Kimimaro. Who the hell would really be fooled by that 3 times? -Kimimaro didn't spend forever in Gaara's sand, remembering the past. Gaara would crush him, and right after he would emerge. No sappy emotions, juss pure freakiness. -Kimimaro NEVER threatened a flower. I'm sorry, but he juss didn't. Now on to some Picture comparisons of his actual bone limit. I highly suggest anime people to actually read the manga, as if you don't, most of any debate you have and points you point out, are void. But to each their own. Some of the anime comparisons will change to a new frame every 4 seconds. Makes posting them and comparing them easier. As you can see, in the manga, the Palm Bone is much more narrow. Also is covered in blood. UPDATE Seiken has done the comparisons for the rest of Kimimaro, from episode 127. These are very accurate and well done, so make sure ot check them out!
