Shikamaru?

We all know that Shikamaru is really smart and a master strategist etcetera etcetera.

But I'm pretty sure he doesn't have the same level of technical skill as other more advanced members of the Nara clan (mainly Shikaku (shikamarus father))

Shikaku > Shikamaru

Shiaku is an excellent strategist as well,possibly even more so than his son ( he often beats Shikamaru at shogi.)

He's also more experienced than Shikamaru

etcetera

etcetera


So why is Shikamaru the generals proxy and not Shikaku?

Re: Shikamaru?

because of plot no jutsu.... and the fact that they say every generation is stronger than the previous one as well we haven't seen shikamaru in action since the hidan and kakuzu arc so we don't no if he has improved or anything.

Re: Shikamaru?

Because shikamaru is part of the rookie 9. And the whole thing about the previous generation being surpassed by the recent generation will make it so shikamaru will pass his dad. It's like asking why is chouji not replaced by his dad because his techniques are more advanced? It's also because it takes many years of practice to get to that level off shadow manipulation techniques and when shikamaru is his dads age he will be just as good an smart. For shikas age he is a pretty damn smart an only time will make home stronger.

Re: Shikamaru?

because Shikaku is elsewhere helping in the WAR. He could be at the village defending it or some where else on the battle field. Besides THAT might not be his thing he may have been the one that decided the entire Army's initial tactics and Maru is there for on the spot strategy. Everyone is playing a part.He is probably w/ Choji and Ino's dad and the other TOP jonin such as the ANBU, the LAST LINE of defense is ALWAYS the strongest. Why do u think the other KAGES are the last thing before reaching Naruto?

Re: Shikamaru?

Please take note, that ACT, as the only OH dude writing a reply here, got thanks at all. I'm just sayin'.

Also, I'd say, that Shikaku is not part of the same plot, that Shikamaru is, his role is significantly smaller than his sons is, and I, like the rest, think, that Shikamaru will face off with Asuma later on. It would not be the same with Shikaku - Asuma.

Quotes for noobs (learn how to break up a quote)
Quote:

So you can post the second bit and i shouldnt be allowed to if i dont tell you? Why be so rude?

Anyways, here is a quotes for noobs guide


1. A basic quote

[*QUOTE][*/QUOTE]

(the * need to be removed for it to work, I put them in so you can see the text) is a basic quote that just wraps something in a quote without saying who quoted it who quoted so

[*QUOTE]this is a quote[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
this is a quote

Edit: there is a button for this, it looks like a speech bubble. If you select text and then press the button the selected text will automatically be wrapped with the quote tag


2. A quote that says who said it

[*QUOTE=who said it][*/QUOTE] this adds who said the post, manually putting that there can be useful when quoting something external. Example:

[*QUOTE=Mangastream]Remember all you sexy bastards out there, Naruto, Bleach, OP, FT, etc. all on break this week. Feel free to take your rage out on us[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
Originally Posted by Mangastream
Remember all you sexy bastards out there, Naruto, Bleach, OP, FT, etc. all on break this week. Feel free to take your rage out on us
3. A quote that says who said it and links to the post where it was said

[*QUOTE=who said it;X][*/QUOTE]

Where X is the post number.

For the post that i originally quoted it would look like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey, how do you break it up please and if your not willingly to tell me, then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]

That is what you get when you press the quote button.

4. Breaking up a quote

Now that you know how quotes work it all boils down to preference, how you want it to look like and how you want to do it.

One way of doing it is copying the latter part of the original quote [*/QUOTE] and then pasting it after each section you break up, write your reply, choose the text you want then paste it after that portion, repeat till you finish the go back and copy then paste the first part of the text at the beginning of each portion of text. Of course you can immediately copy and paste both parts of a poste so that you dont forget one in the end.

The end result would be something like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4



Which without any * would look like

Quote:

Another way of doing it would be to cut and paste the second part of the quote tag after the first section of text you want to seperate then write your reply select the second part and hit he quote button (it looks like a text bubble),if you do that without anything else the end result would be

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4

Which would look like

Quote:

my reply 4

To make it like the previous example (which wpuld be preferred, though not necessary ) copy the part that says who posted with the link to the post and paste it accordingly to the proper part in each first half of each quote tag. In my I would copy =minato uchiha;2118164 and paste it where the # is
[*QUOTE#] to get [*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] (of course with the * removed)


Of course you can use any other method you like to get to the end result, but now that you know what the end rwsult looks like I think there shouldnt be any problems

Re: Shikamaru?

Shikaku is assisting Tsunade behind the scenes with the other kages besides Gaara. He has a fair say in what happens to Naruto and Bee. I'd say that's a pretty important job.

Re: Shikamaru?

I am pretty sure the fact the Shikimaru gives his dad a run for his money in Shogi shows that his intelligence level will be far superior to his father as he gets older... plus Shikimaru is training to be a main general at some point, they need to teach someone who is younger so that they can take over.

Re: Shikamaru?

We all know that Shika is gonna be Naruto's Right hand when/if he becomes Hokage.

IF Sasuke was around he would probably be Leader of the ANBU.

But i see Neji as his Left hand because of his mentality.

That would be best but I think Neji may die protecting Hinata by choice like his father wanted to do for his brother, but more by instinct like Iruka and Sasuke took the bullet for Naruto, besides Sakura is likely going to be on his side. Kishi wont leave her out unless she dies. I would rather Sakura die than Neji if it had to be one, but it is likely going to be one female and one male on his side like the current elders.

Sasuke wouldnt be anywhere near what he is now if he never left.

I think IF he came back after killing Orochimaru he would still be how he is now(power level wise) training w/ Kakashi to unlock the MS w/o death and evil.he woulda surpassed Kakashi like Naruto surpassed J-Man.

Sakura would not be his left or right, she would just be head of the Med corp.

After being matured through WAR Hinata may be on his Left IF they go with the male/female thing. Shika/Hinata, of course Shino and Kiba would be heads of the Tracker Ninjas

Sasuke would have never had that type of 1 on 1 fighting experience he got with ninja that he has fought after leaving Orochu. Those fights forced him to push his limits and go all out knowing nobody was there to save him. His power level increaded from him being forced to push it to the limit. His skills increased from battling different types of powerful ninja with different skills and being forced to think up or use different skills and strategies in order to live. He would not have had the priviledge or time or been put in those 1 on 1 situations if he came back to Konoha.

I think Kishi is going to make Sakura his adviser. I think that she is too close to him for Kishi not to, while still carrying on the 1 male 1 female theme. Not many females get that much respect in this manga anyway but Sakura should be a bad ass after some time at war.

I think Hinata is just going to be his wife and mother of his kids, and maybe on the council, more like what Sarutobi's wife was in Kanoha. She too wil bee a bad ass after some time at war.

I hope Kiba doesnt die and gets better. He definitely needs this experience.

Who r u kidding? Sasuke would Be Hokage if he had stayed and not gone evil....

If sasuke was as determined to protect the village as he is to destroy it now, sasuke would be Kage Fo'Sho....

(and the pissed off naruto fans start bitching...)

BOT: Im wondering how Gaara got to be General of the entire army...!!! I mean gaara is smart and all, but doesnt really compare to shikamaru or kakashi in war games brilliance and thinking many many moves ahead...

If anyone of all shinobi knew how to use a large force of people it would be one of those two IMO... Gaara got Plot no jutsu general position.
