Well, I guess that kinda makes sense... Sorry for leaving out the spoiler tags :P

I've got another one I've been thinking a lot about:

When the Uchiha planned a coup d'etat, was the whole clan in on it? Was the friendly fat old lady from Sasuke's flashback in on it? Was Sasuke seriously the only Uchiha child living in the Uchiha clan area that took up a portion of the entire city?

Kishimoto has never answered those questions. It seems a little hard to believe that Sasuke was the only Uchiha child at the time of the massacre, but Kishimoto has been mum on the issue for fear of actually making Itachi look like the monster he is (my opinion at least).

^ Does that make sense in context?

It sounds weird.

So there were other kids who didn't know about the coup?
Spoiler for Uchiha massacre:


Also, here's another one: Ages ago, when Sakura and Naruto asked Sai about Danzo he showed them he had a seal on his tongue. But couldn't he just write everything down? There's no seals on his hands, right?

While never explicitly stated, I feel it is safe to assume that the seal (which is meant to paralyze the victim) would be activated even if the victim were to attempt to write down any information.

there were obviously other kids. like Hunter said, Kishi didn't want to show Itachi murdering children since he was to become a sympathetic character it would make it more difficult for readers to overcome those images.

It just shows why you shouldn't reuse the same word in the same sentence, which is a little sad considering that was the official US translation.
Please use spoiler tags, I know it's not really spoilerish but this pic is from an event yet to happen in the anime nonetheless.

You like to ask question without real answer don't you? Let's say that this seal was hardwired from the tongue through his entire nervous system. And for your next question Danzou chose to place it there because he was an old pervert who liked to put his fingers into kids mouth.

Well, questions with real answers I mostly already know. What's interesting is the stuff that don't have an answer yet.

Alright, let's try a question I think does have a real answer, which I'm not sure about:

Does every Mangekyou Sharingan user get Tsukuyomi and Amaterasu? Or is each Mangekyou unique? Because Sasuke has Amaterasu, and I think the genjutsu he used on Danzou was referred to as a undeveloped version of Tsukuyomi once.

Spoiler:


If each Mangekyou is unique to the user, then what decides which Mangekyou they get?

Also, what exactly are the requirements for Susano? Itachi made it sound like they were Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, but Sasuke stated only those who have awakened the Mangekyou in both eyes can use it.

I think you actually do already know the answer to those.

Here there is a doubt I was having and wanted others' opinion. Is it okay to call Sasuke a genius? This was brought up when Rock Lee was first introduced and Naruto accused Sasuke of being strong despite training less or something like that. Later in Sasuke's flashback we learn that when he was younger Sasuke wasn't really a genius and everybody viewed Itachi as the genius. Sasuke had to train a lot to reach his state from Part I following his brother's footsteps. There was nothing in Sasuke to call him a born genius.

Personally I think everyone's definition of genius is different.

To a guy like Rock Lee, who was actually kind of a loser and isn't good at anything, and not even capable of using ninjutsu or genjutsu, Sasuke and Neji are geniuses because of their bloodline limits.

However, to Sasuke, Itachi was more of a genius then he was.

Then again, when Kakashi saw Rock Lee opening all those gates, he said that that's not something that can be achieved by hard work alone, and Rock Lee may be a genius after all.

Really it's pretty vague what it takes to be a genius. I think as long as you're exceptional and clever, you're kinda a genius already.

Aside from, "because it makes a good story" is there any reason why Naruto wasn't given his fathers surname?

Naruto Namikaze would probably have grown up to be a loved and happy child.

I've seen some theories online that it's common for Asian cultures to give a child the mothers surname and also that Minato had enemies or something so the elders wanted to protect Naruto by giving him his mothers name. My response to those reasons are, Asuma Sarutobi, and Konohamaru Sarutobi, plus whoever is Konohamaru's dad who would also have the Sarutobi name.
