View Full Version : Multiverse: Minato vs literacy

Does Minato have any feats to suggest he's capable of reading?

Not that I can think of.

I do not think so.

Not that I know of.

But since he is able to write his seals on people, we can assume he knows how to write at least.

He doesn't write those though, he just puts his hand somewhere and a seal magically appears.

I see, well then I suppose he's just a total idiot.

By that logic, not very many characters in Naruto are literate. http://s236.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/nfforums/NF%20smilies/kruemelmonsteryn0.gif

I should probably point out that in Kushina's flashbacks during her conversation with Naruto, you see Minato in the ninja academy as well as herself. Considering that they both graduated (which requires a written test), I am sure Minato can read and write.

That's hype not feats. http://s236.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/nfforums/NF%20smilies/2z7exox.png

Minato read Jiraiya's book, did he not? That's where he got the name Naruto.

Ohh, Konoha has a good point Dudemeister.

Maybe he got a book on tape. http://s236.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/nfforums/NF%20smilies/kruemelmonsteryn0.gif

I see what you did there. http://s236.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/nfforums/NF%20smilies/2z7exox.png

However, it says in the character databooks that Minato did graduate from the academy at the age of ten. Therefore, he did have to take a written test to pass, and that should be enough to say he has the ability to read and write.

EDIT: Good point KGT. :lol:

Didn't you make an exact same thread about Sasuke? http://s236.photobucket.com/albums/ff286/nfforums/NF%20smilies/2z7exox.png

Yes he did.
