    They say that the Sannin graduated from the academy at age 6, right? Well, in the flashbacks of whe nthey were doing the bell test, you saw the sannin were much older then just 6 years old when they took it. So what happened in that gap between when they graduated and when they took the test to graduate:blink



    Also, if, according to some people, sandaime was hokage at age friggin 12, why was he still doing bell tests? A jounin is assigned genin ninja, not the friggin hokage (so much for the 12 yr. old hokage theories).

    Hm, you have enough posts that you are probably not talking about the anime, which would be a simple error on the animators side.

    Some people look older or seem to mature faster. It could be the Sannin got the head start because they simply had an early growth spurt or similiar. If 6 year olds also graduated the academy the Hokage himself might have taken the time to see to it they were trained correctly. Could you imagine Ebisu trying to tame the 3 chibi-Sannin if they got bored?

    First of all, graduating the academy does not mean becoming a Genin.
    Secondly, we don't know if the Sandaime did the belltest himself, only that he gave it to the Sannin.

    Also, the bell test, isnt a means of graduating anything. Just a means of testing skill lvl.

    Or they could've used gengutsu to look older.

    Hmmm... that seems very impractical though... this is a confusing topic though.

    The bell test wasn't a test to become genin. It was merely used by Kakashi for that purpose+ to test their sense of teamwork...which is everything to kakashi.

    Sandaime probably used it as a test of skill.
