Haven't you noticed that the number NINE comes out alot of times? These are what I've found so far: Kyuubi had NINE tails. The word 'ninetails' has NINE letters. Naruto joined the ninja-academy when he was NINE years old. (unconfirmed) Only NINE of the students graduated from the academy are chosen as genin. There are NINE members in Akatsuki. There's NINE letters in the name Kishimoto. Coincidence? Please, if you find anything that has NINE-something on it from the Naruto series (anime only), please post them here, let's try to get NINE things on that list . Oh, and I woke up today at NINE o'clock.
