An excerpt from the boruto novel :
“Behind Shikamaru who was giving the opening speech, there sat the Sixth Hokage Hatake Kakashi, and legendary ninja such as Might Guy and Mitarashi Anko, revealing just how special this Chuunin Exam was. They were all Living Legends who the people claimed could take on whole nations as opponents.”
I've seen people in tumblr reblogging this from a user named Teacher-monica.
Even though i still think anything about naruto that's not written by kishi is NOT CANON. So boruto is essentially a highly budgeted DOUJIN, written by a paid FAN. Bye.
BUT I MADE THIS AN EXCEPTION. THIS IS CANON TO ME. even though ,i cant find any other source than tumblr ;v; Knowing that Studio Pierrot would never pin this as their canon. I'll just gonna put this drawing here, giving a tiny brick to solidify this canon in the fandom
God, i could only imagine how bad ass Kakashi's administration is, his administration is essentially the foundation of Naruto era's peace.
Gai being his right hand mand, and Anko being the left (is left-hand a thing? maybe for spy-rings or some-sort like in Dragon Age Inquisition's Leliana).
I made Gai stand here with a cane (I want him to have a mix of Master Roshi X Bruce lee look). He could at least use some mecha-limbs like Naruto in some point.
Why did Tsunade only give that useful thing to Naruto, what about Sasuke and Gai? i get it that naruto is jesus in her universe... but oh well. It's futile to question the plotholes of Naruto. it's easier to fill in :
So, my interpretation is the mecha limbs requires a stupidly-over powered chakra that only naruto could use casually.
Gai could use it, but it could drain him quickly. His eye sockets would go dark everytime he use the mecha-leg, from being exhausted that's why he keeps wearing his hip-sunglasses. (an excuse because i wanted Gai to wear one like Bruce lee) He kept wearing it during Kakashi's reign, he was a public figure then. Posturing is everything. plus, he thought he should at least get used to the leg, hoping a newer version that wouldnt take too much chakra would be developed (which it never will). But he treats the mecha-legs handy-cap like "training weight" for his chakra (it could work that way?)
