    Sorry my fault. I put the question in the wrong place. It only has ......

    Though I repeat this was not translated by Mari Morimoto and Naruto was no where near as popular then.

    i like the way they were worded, especially the second page (with the light and shadow powers speech). i am also glad that they got the "practical application" part correct.

    btw can you also show the last page where tobi talks about nagato, blinx?

    I second this.

    It would be interesting if Nagato was deemed to be the Third Sage of Six Paths. Simply because Tobi is considered to be one for having Uchiha and Senju blood/abilities. Would this imply Nagato has/had (latent?) Uchiha and Senju powers?

    Either they're waking up, or they're looking at ShounenSuki's talk page and/ our spoiler thread :blinditachi


    EDIT: So it basically sounds like Izanagi "came" from the Sage, but it's not something he actually used, and "Izanagi" can also be considered a philosophy of some kind? :geg



    There you go. Didn't fuck that one up either.

    The impression I got was that Izanagi was a practical application of the first Sage of the Six Path's jutsu.
    Though didn't the fan translation also suggest this? :hmm

    That Izanagi viz translation is absolutely flawless.

    Love the light style power and shadow style power classification.

    Well the Sage had an ability; it's not called a jutsu. And Viz kept it the same. The confusing part is what Tobi says in the last panel of the second picture, and first panel of the third picture.

    Well, I didn't like it at all. This part is confusing as hell. Why not use traditional "Yin" and "Yang" (with "release", if necessary)? Translating them into the "shadow" and "light" is plain stupid, because this concept is much bigger than just that.

    Also, their wording is difficult to read as usual. I would hardly understand the meaning if I wasn't reading the fan translations.

    In all fairness Faustus has a point. When I read yin and yang, I can appreciate the philosophical underpinning of the story. I can understand that the author is trying to convey the duality of a Rikudou powers, yin and yang, Senju and Uchiha. Light and Darkness is too vague and removed from what the author said in Japanese.

    It's not really that they are underestimating fans. They always change the names of element names to "<Element> Style". Besides, Light and Shadow can still fit in leu "Yin" and "Yang".

    Viz is translating more to the specific meaning of the manga and how each of the various things are used.

    You have your wind style, fire style, earth style, lightning style, and water style chakra natures along with your wood style, lava style, blast style, magnet style etc. Then Shikamaru's jutsu, Genjutsu, Chouji's jutsu and Medical Ninjutsu all fall into the light style and shadow style categories of nature manipulation.

    Viz's translation isn't just smart, it's consistent. I'm also blown away that some would say that the wording of Viz's translation is difficult to read... Their translations, if read correctly, clear up any and all confusion that some people may have. Their translations, for example, when read carefully, tell readers that Iruka when he spoke about the Third Hokage's strength was not making a direct comparison to the Fourth Hokage, but was relaying information in a past tense that only compared Hiruzen to Hashirama and Tobirama at the time the Third earned the nickname "The Professor". It's the same exact reason why Hiruzen himself got angry at Iruka for speaking in the past tense. The implication of Iruka's comments were that the Third was no longer that same legendary shinobi that he once was.

    Brilliant post and I completely agree with it especially about Hiruzen. The statements about him being the strongest were clearly in the past.

    The VIZ also do a similar thing the praise Sandaime Kazekage gets. They say he was only stronger than his predecessors. Hence, implying the later Kazekages, surpassed him like is a big theme of Kishimoto's manga.

    I don't see a problem with 'light' and 'shadow'; for the philosophical basis, the reader has the clear image of the Yin-Yang symbol on the page if they wish to go that deep.
    If that doesn't make you happy, you clearly see 'Inton' and 'Yoton' on the panels too; stick with those if 'light' and 'shadow' don't meet your fancy?

    Also, does this mean there is no 'Yin-Yang' style jutsu going by Viz? :hmm

    Oh I see. Well, personally, I gathered it meant that Tobi called Izanagi a jutsu which can turn illusion into reality; akin to the Sage's ability.
    I doubt he'd need to explain its main mechanism - the ultimate jutsu to cast on oneself - as he did so before imo.

    Viz releases the highest quality English scans of Naruto you can read. What I mean by this is that Viz scans have thee best picture quality and translation. With that said I'm not saying Viz can't make translation mistakes here and there, but the mistakes in Viz translation are incredibly rare, while if you look at Online scans there is practically a mistake in translation every other chapter, but one has to remember that Viz is translated by professionals who are paid to spend hours making the translation fit perfectly in English. So if you want to read the best quality scans of the manga than you should read Viz & I very much doubt anyone who reads Viz will come out of it understanding the manga less than when reading Online scans.

    With that out of the way, I just got the Viz Translated DB III & Volume 54. If anyone has any questions feel free to post them or PM me. I might post some of the differences I found interesting once I get a chance to read both in detail.

    I've been a bit lazy buying up the volumes and have yet to get Volume 53 or 54. However, I am more interested in the databook. If you have time can you post the beginning of the Orochimaru page. Especially the line Hiruzen says to him about not being able to compete with such talent.

    Also the section on Susano'o about Amaterasu and Tsukiyomi. Especially now that we have the VIZ translation of Madara's words.

    Thanks for replying though.
    By the way, is there anything about Nagato/Pain/Rinnegan's entry about the elemental mastery? Does it list five or six natures?

    Also does the Rikudou Sennin's entry - the part about the Rinnegan towering supreme over Doujutsu - match the fan translated version?

    Does it also mention Minato's affinity for creating jutsu as it does in the fan translated version?

    Lastly, does it mention anything about Sasuke's (databook) scores improving with him obtaining the MS? (I remember reading it around on the boards, but I can't find it anywhere.)


    Sorry about the hefty amount of requests. :p
    Take your time, though! :awesome

    "the "Professor" of the group, the Third Hokage said of him, "All of my knowledge is still no match for his talent."

    So basically Hiruzen is just saying that Orochimaru's Genius/Talent is > than his Wisdom/Knowledge. It doesn't have to do with overall Ninja ability. Like I have said before Prime Hiruzen > Old Hiruzen ~ Orochimaru.

    "Amaterasu representing the light of the material world; and Tsukuyomi, the nightmare realm, representing the world of the of the mind and darkness."

    So the main change here is that the Viz says Amaterasu represents the light of the material world, while the Online translations says Amaterasu represents light and the material world. & The Viz says Tsukuyomi represents Mind and darkness, while the online translations says it represents the spiritual world and darkness.

    Overall the viz sounds more to me like Kishi is not talking about Yin/Yang here, but just that one is a physical attack while the other is a mental attack


    @Everyone

    Aside from that I'll say that the online translation are missing a few jutsu and are also missing a few entries from DB III. One of the most interesting entries I was the one given to the Toad Sage who predicted J-man's & Naruto's future, because it states that he is thousands of years old & it states that the reason he can see the future is due to his enormous amounts of chakra. Now considering that Naruto, B, Nagato, etc... have never had any premonitions of the future, it seems like the Toad Sage has the greatest amount of chakra in existence with the possible exception being Rikudo or the Juubi.

    Given this fact and the age of the Toad Sage, I'm starting to believe that the Toad Sage was originally Rikudo Sannin's Summon & Rikudo Sannin was the first to sign a contract with the Toads. It also makes me wonder just how powerful J-man & Minato really were, considering as experienced Toad summoners, there is a good chance they may have had the ability to summon the Toad Sage, which apparently is more powerful than the Demon Fox, so yeah... if J-man could summon the Toad Sage that could easily explain why Itachi was so afraid of fighting him or if Minato could summon the Toad Sage that could easily explain all the statements about him being this unsurpassable GoaT.

    1. Says Five Chakra Natures
    2. For Rikudo's Entry on Rannigan it says, "the highest form of occular ninjutsu, Rinnegan eye." Which kind of makes me wonder if Rannigan = ultimate Ninjutsu dojutsu, EMS = ultimate Genjutsu dojutsu, & Byakugan = ultimate Taijutsu dojutsu. If you have all three you basically have access to the strongest techniques in existence.
    3. "With the talent to invent many jutsu in his own style." So yeah it does & in-fact suggest he invented many different jutsu, which pretty much means that Minato has not even begun to show us all of his Jutsu since the only two Jutsu we have seen from him which he invented were Rasengan & FTG, which I do not think qualifies as being many jutsu.
    4. "Now that he's awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan his numbers are bound to grow even more." I think this means that his Genjutsu proficiency will increase because MS, well, increases his Genjutsu proficiency
