The Anime is somewhere around Chapter 310. You will notice an immediate difference between Chapter 310 and the current anime episodes (and I do not mean the upcoming filler).

No...not yet.There are always possibilities for the future, though, but so far Kakashi's is the only Gaiden.

Sadly enough, no chapter is sceduled for this week. 5/8 I think is the next official Shounen Jump release, but I could be wrong.

Well, besides Jiraiya, they do not have real markings (at least not that carry over from childhood). But, just to clarify:

Tsunade - has a bead/jewel shaped seal on her forehead which has a large supply of chakra stored into it. When she accesses this seal she, much the same as the 8 Heavenly Gates, is granted a significant boost in her healing abilities as well as over-all abilities, at the cost of portions of her life.

Jiraiya - has a red line coming down from each eye; currently unknown as to purpose, possibly a clan mark (similiar to Kiba's families marks), or possibly simply an unexplainable mark used to differentiate characters face.
Spoiler for Manga Spoiler:


Orochimaru - extreme eyeliner ; makes his appearance similiar to a snakes - in the recent anime episodes, it is unknown if the marks serve any purpose other than to make him look more serpentine, but,
Spoiler for Manga Spoilers:


Please someone feel free to fill in anything that I left out.

Tsunade's seal doesn't cost a portion of her life, using her jutsu Genesis Rebirth does.
Her seal simply allows her to access at a large quantity of chakra previously stored at once which she can use then to do whatever she wants.
Oro always has had these marks even as a kid.

They are all most probably simply facial features used by the author to differentiate his characters.

Difficulty, power, chakra consumption. What determines the rank of a jutsu?

Doesn't "Difficulty" imply both power and chakra consumption (as well as a few other things)? That being said, the Rank system (A-Rank, B-Rank, etc) used in the Naruto-verse seems to be geared specifically toward difficulty levels.

Where do you guys get this info from? Manga or some other source.

The info comes from the data books and manga, but just to clarify the entire question, here is a quote from the Naruto Wikipedia page:

Quote:
from Wikipedia
Depending on the difficulty or skill necessary to perform a jutsu, they will be ranked differently. There are a total of six ranks (from E to S), plus two informal ranks for special circumstances. The rank of a jutsu does not necessarily mean it will be more effective than a lower-ranked jutsu, just more difficult to perform properly. The overall effectiveness of any given jutsu is largely based on individual skill. The two informal ranks are "secret" and "forbidden technique". Secret jutsu are passed down from generation to generation within a clan. These jutsu are not ranked since no one outside the clan knows how to perform them. Kekkei genkai-based jutsu also fall under this rank since it is impossible for anyone else to perform them. Forbidden jutsu, on the other hand, often do fall into one of the six main ranks, but are an exception because they are forbidden (or, at the very least, frowned upon) to learn or perform. A technique can be categorized as forbidden if it either causes great harm to the user, such as opening the Eight Gates, or if the techniques are dark or sinister in nature, such as those used by Orochimaru.
Sorry for the double post, but I have a question concerning Kage Bushin.

How can a Kage Bushin punch something (or even walk) if pressure is all that is needed to dispell the technique? Specifically, how can a Kage Bushin hit something and stay intact if, when it hits something, it is having pressure exterted on itself (i.e. the Kage Bushin applies a certain amount of force on an object/person, and consequently the object/person applies an equal or less equal force to the Kage Bushin). To put it another way, how can a Kage Bushin hit something and not pop? (and the extreme version fo this question is why a Kage Bushin can even last in the Earth's gravational field, or not pop when it is doing something simple like running or jumping (which create a larger amount of pressure on the feet than simply standing or walking.)

---

Additionally, is Naruto the only one who can henge into objects, or can anyone, and if anyone can, have we seen evidence of this in the manga/anime?

James I'm just going to give you the most logical answer.

There must be a certain amount of strength or pressure needed to dispel the Bunshin. I think the amount chakra distributed between the shadow clones determines the level of pressure or attack force needed to dispel the technique.

Second question, no Naruto is not the only one who can henge into objects because Sasuke managed to understand his plan agaisnt Zabuza which means that he's familiar with the technique.

Spoiler for manga:

That makes sense (and was more or less what I believed). I was simply unsure and was wondering if there was a specific quote from Kishimoto concerning the technique and its durability). Thank you for the response.

Then why do more people not use this technique...oh well I guess it is just one of those things that is not relevent for the situations at hand (i.e. the battles that have been fought have not required this knowledge/ability).
