Re: Naruto and "Granny" Tsunade
The reason Minato was seen as so amazing was because he was the 1st NON-Senju to become Hokage. Everyone else is in relation to one another. There hasn't even been a hint that Minato was related to the 1st, 2nd, or Sarutobi. When in Jiraiya's story about Naruto, there was ample opportunity to speak of Minato's bloodlines being alongside the other 3 Hokages, and blah blah. It didn't happen, and the manga's been all about keeping the secret of Naruto's parents from him, theres nothing gained from keeping Minato's relation to the other Hokages a secret, and it does nothing 'better', or 'worse' for Naruto.
