this implies kakashi is at least 4 years younger than obito and rin
also guy graduate at age 7 from academy
next we come at chunnin graduation data
kakashi became chunin at age 6(after defeating 8 year old guy)
rin and obito both 10 yr old
obito and rin become chunnin at age 11(a year after kakashi)
guy also becomes chunin at age 11(but 3 years after kakashi)
so when guy becomes chunin kakashi obito amd rin are of age 9,12,12 respectively.
now comes greatest blunder
databook says obito died at age 13(2 years after his chunin exam)
and in kakashi gaiden kakashi is said to be of age 13(becoming jounin)
which leads to say obito must be at least 17....
the all loopholes arise from here
how come this happpen ?
before chapter 599 I assumed kakashi graduated and was assigned initially with some temprorary team untill being asigned with obito and rin who were supposed to be his age.
"Also Rin was attracted to a guy 4 years younger than her
I see what your saying here. The ONLY thing saving Kishi is no years have been established. For example we dont know what year everyone was born in.
So they could all be the same age. There were no years marked in that flashback. Kakashi became a Chuunin a year after graduation, yes. But it is your Sensei that puts the whole team into it. Obito and Rin could have participated at the same one Kakashi was in, then years later finally succede.
There also were a couple panels that made it "appear" Obito was taller than Kakashi.
By the way Minato was not that tall. He and Kakashi were nearly the same height (full grown Kakashi). J man almost dwarfed the 3rd and 4th Hokages.
Just saying i they were to his shoulder in the war they could be right at his height a year later. Average growth 3 inches a year plus growth spurt coupd equal 6 inches which could put him right at Minato's height.
Naruto went from elbow to ear on kakashi after the time skip (granted it was two years). Now he is his height.
Now i said all that just as example of what KISHI could USE to back up this clusterfuck of plotholes.
Personally i think it isnt Obito just his body or maybe our forum brother is on to something with the rapid growth alternate dimension. He does have 5 minute limit. Maybe thats as long as he can stay until it starts affecting him.
Im just waiting for 600 to TRY to explain this to us all. Unless he cuts to the Kages or Sasuke. If he does that one of those damn Kage better die and the reveal for Sasuke and his truth search better be freaking awesome!
Cause it would be wrong for him(Kishi) to run from this next week!
