Re: New Konoha11 ranking?
i have always put Shino as second or third strongest out of the konoha 11, and now kishi just gives me more reason to do so. but sakura has finally showcased her powers (as i knew she would eventually). so here's my list
1. Naruto - obvious reasons
2. Sakura - no kekkei genkai, no special family lineage but yet is able to store chakra in a precise point for 3 years, enhanced her strength incredibly, proficient at med ninjutsu, and now has a slug summon...yeah she's number 2 for good reason
3. Shino - never lost a fight (according to the manga, i believe he's only been hit once, and that was back in the chuunin exams), analyzing skills rival that of shikamaru. increased close combat prowess tremendously with new technique. Incredible range. insects show tanking, and speed feats
4. choji - he can now double his giant size..like holy crap, seriously. speed feats. butterfly mode.
5. Lee - gates are a forced to be recon with. plain taijustu is simply amazing, no kekkei genkai or special family lineage
6/7. Neji/Hinata - well...yeah lol i don't really feel like going into detail. but for all those ppl that said that hinata would wipe the floor with sakura.......yeahhhh not happening lol
Extras: Shikamaru - intelligence is off the charts. new jutsu are crazy good. can defeat almost anyone with minimal prep time but the feats are stacking up against him. so i'm placing him here because idk where he exactly fits after the first 3.
Kiba has improved a LOT...and it's about damn time. with his new techs, i am still unsure where to place him after first three.
10: Ino - even though she can't keep up with sakura, she's doing her damn thing
11: Tenten - hasn't showcased any new techs
