Re: Shikamaru promoted to Special Jounin?
it's highly probable, so it's not that shocking really. He was first to become chuunin, and everyone recognizes his intelligence though when you say he doesn't have much chakra, thats a backstep. I don't recall any time they stated he has less chakra than the average ninja. He moulds his chakra well, he's just very conservative. It's strategic and beneficial. It just shows his intelligence all the more. He has an average level of stamina as well, he just chooses not to perform at his best most of the time because, as stated many times, Shikamaru is a lazy fuck ^^ But then again, with his intelligence, a lot of stuff would obviously bore him, so who can blame him?
