Re: Manga Mistake's
That shotgun was in a normal village with a normal store, it wasn't used by a ninja. The Naruto World is not set in a primitive time line. We have seen robots like one of Pain's bodies ...(robot, doll, whatever, it shoots rockets and explosives) ... and that is in contradiction with what Kishimoto said in an interview:
- Do you have any rules about what is definitely not allowed to be drawn in the "Naruto" world?
K: Firstly, projectile weapons such as guns aren't allowed. (The one exception is Inari's bowgun.) Guns aren't suited to ninja. Gunpowder is used in the anime,though I don't think it should be there. And, vehicles such as aeroplanes are not allowed. I try to restrain technology that can be used for war... For example, if missiles were in it, it'd be the end. (laughs)
Yeah, missiles are the end... now who's laughing? I guess one of the 3 faces of that missle launcher Pain does.
Yet they have electricity..... gunpowder was discovered in the 9th century and the history of the light bulb begins in the year 1802 ... so...yeah, Naruto is set in modern times, but Kishi preferred to keep things simple, because it is a ninja world, so that shotgun, well, it's something that we can ignore.
