According to you hair color has nothing to do with anything, so why are you using a difference in hair color to prove your point?!? Anyway the majority of their drawings have the same eyes, noses, and head shape. The eyebrows, and mouth are always different because Karin is always mad or trying to be sexy, and Kushina is always shown happy and happily blushing.
As do most siblings...
but we both know they're not sisters or mother and daughter.
So basically, you're saying that it's ok for you to base the theory that they're related on the fact that they have similar but not identical hair colors, but I can't point out the BS of both that logic and your evidence because the argument that they don't even share a hair color involves hair color. They DON'T have similar facial structures though. That's the point. Karin's face looks NOTHING like Naruto's. And then you're just admitting that they don't actually have any similarity to their personalities, which was one of your "key points" in your original argument.
You have to admit, that has nothing to do with anything. Jiraiya could conceivably have little "J-Jrs" that he doesn't know about all over Narutoland. Are you suggesting that no one lives outside of the village they were born in?
By the way...where exactly was the Whirlpool Country...I couldn't find it on the maps I was able to find?
Well gee, seeing as it's been explicitly stated to NOT EXIST ANYMORE, of course it's not going to be on a map. But which do you
think is the more likely general area of THE WHIRLPOOL VILLAGE: in the middle of a continent, or ON THE COAST? Hmm, well, Kushina is stated to have been from, and for a time lived in the Whirlpool Country. Meanwhile, Karin is shown to have been a ninja for the Grass Village back in the time of the Chuunin Exams arc. Moreover, it's implied that the Whirlpool country WAS GONE BEFORE THE KYUUBI ATTACK ANYWAY.
You are absolutely right! (But I'm not going to ignore an obvious clue either). Even so...here is a fact...There are several different shades of "Blonde" in your list. If you compare the colors..there is very often a close family relationship. i.e yukimaru and Tamari, Gaara and his dad...etc, etc.
Please don't start me wondering if Gaara is related to Kushina.
I'mmabout done on the hole hair color thing...I'll say it like this...The term family resemblance exists because people belonging to the same family tree often share these family similarities.
By the way, I said ranters...you're not ranting are you?
Tsunade and Raikage have the exact same hair color: very pale blonde.
Karin's Hair Color =/= Kushina's hair color.
Basically, any way you look at it this logic is completely invalid, and your argument is anything but sound. One, several characters with exactly the same traits in one physical characteristic are not remotely related. Two, NO PART OF YOUR "LOGIC" FOR KARIN BEING RELATED TO KUSHINA IS IN ANY WAY VALID, because there is NO ASPECT of comparison that shows any basis for a "theory" that they're related. Their physical traits aren't similar, their personalities aren't remotely similar, they don't come from the same regions, and most of all: NOTHING HAS BEEN ADDRESSED THAT WOULD RELATE KARIN IN ANY WAY TO NARUTO. DONTCHA THINK THAT MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, IF NARUTO HAD HAD ANY RELATIVES, IT WOULD BE RATHER IMPORTANT!?
