I'm sure this has crossed everyone's mind. Is naruto in the past or the present? They have electronics of sorts, but yet they're all like from the past, like how they have a village and not a city, etc.

If anyone can answer this question please tell me.

I think they have no set time zone

Or maybe they live in a different world...but that wouldn't be possible since they know what the planet Mars is...unless they are on a different planet...but then Kabuto wouldn't have mentioned Cleopatra...or would he?...

I say they are in the same time as we are like when the manga or anime started

If they are, why don'tthey live in a city? Their village is big enough to be a medium or small sized city.

Their is no setting time so it is about the same time as we just they didn't invent cars or anything really to much of what they need

because they didn't have dinosaurs doing such they can't use fossil fuels they use steam powered and lightning rods to use as electricity and you cant run a city on a steam engine or a lightning rod

I think they live in a different world altogether. because in one of my fanbooks the author said that he didn't want any projectile weopans of vehicals in the story, or else the plot would have been resolved a long time ago. it has to be a different world.

I don't think the story is set with any relationship in time or place to the real world.

It's set in an entirely different world. There's a chance it might be set in a post apocolytic era. They might have had huge wars with nuclear bombs and other destructive weapons that reshaped the worls and after the war was done they began a new life and any traces of technology were used on the new world. Plus I remember it being stated in the manga the wars before ninja were a lot more destructive than with ninjas, but I doubt Kishi will go that route.

This actually gave me a lot of ideas and I'm going to sat the one I find the most reasonable.

It might be a different possible present. I believe that it could be an alternate reality where something different happened in the past and they have little technology in their present.

About the thing before ninja wars, it was actually a bunch of clans and such that were hired by countries to take out other countries, such as the uchiha clan, they were one of the most feared warriors and there was another one that I forgot the name.

The reason it's the before ninja war is because they weren't really ninjas, but they still had a multiple amount of jutsus.

They didn't have jutsus until the Sage came along then they became ninjs plus as time passes Ninutsu develops, so the current ones are probably more destructive than the older ones.

Wait a second, are you saying there was something besides the clan wars? I'm gonna have to reread that stuff, I guess I missed something, or maybe I forgot it.

Maybe, maybe not, you never know, they might be though ... Hey, I just rhymed, and I didn't even realize it.

I like your signature, by he way.

Well I meant that in the manga it was stated something like before there were ninja wars were a lot more destructive. It was said somewhere around Nagato's death.

Thanks, TTGL's epic, especially Kamina.:mrgreen:

I think it's set in an alternate dimension. Something happened (after the reign of Cleopatra), that caused the world of Naruto to branch off into a different path then our own.

But, that's just my theory

An altenate dimension between the past and future. Its a whole new world out there.

I don't think the story is set with any relationship in time or place to the real world.
actually the hidden leaf village is based around masashi kishimotos home town in japan, and the reason they have some technology but not as advanced as ours is that kishimoto wanted to give the manga some realism, but didnt want things like firearms and cars in it because that would take away from the fantasy element in naruto.

They don't live in a city because Naruto wouldn't be right in a city. Imagine them traveling to a mission by a car. Really?

i have to agree with him it definately is a different world sort of where technology and the past combine a little but mostly it looks past (no cars but there is electricity)

I'm not that sure either.

In the original pilot for Naruto,

one of the characters had a gun.

He was the antagonist in the story

and he wasn't a ninja. Since then, there

hasn't been a single gun scene, or even a

mention of shooting somebody. Except when

Suigetsu points his finger to Sasuke's head like

a gun. Or when Kimimaro uses his Finger Bullets

Jutsu. Yeah... It's just an alternate universe. Don't

question it. Or else, they will come after you.

I'd say from the past w/ kinda magicy stuff (ninjutsu)

they live the present world because in the anime you can see a computer in Inaris room and in the pilot naruto you see a city,bikes ,guns,cars, etc they live in planet Earth and in the present

kakashi uzumaki
07-05-2009, 10:47 AM
i am guessing its in the past because in japans history things were much like how they are in the series and what king of technology do they have?
like for example: they make their own medicine out of plants and stuff well exept that most of the time they use chakra and stuff to heal the person

but most likely in the past

Also in one of the movies I believe Sky Ninja had some kind of weapon shooting blaster also even though its filler Naruto's toad gun with Gamatatsu mentions a gun even though it doesn't really count

i think they live in this time why in the village because Ninja always lived in isolated village even in the time of old original ninjas there were large cities in japan.
why they dont use modern method may be because they think their methods are better remember Chinese medicine and Acupuncture are still used now.

I dont really think that there is a time setting because its a bit like the past and a bit like the future. but i dont think it has anything to do with the real world. sort of like an alternate reality.

I think the whole of Naruto enjoys making the most out of an oldies theme...
Like dragonball, they do tend to use electronics, which allways leaves the viewer wondering... i get the feeling that we're supposed to think like this... maybe it will all be answered in the final episode :P

It's Kishi's own alternate reality version of Japan... I guess it's an alternate present, just minus the luxuries like cars and other such stuff. [But wait, ya, there's no cars in the manga, but in the Movie with the Princess or whatever, they were in a truck, almost got hit by a train... there was a blimpy thing...???]

I think its around our time just, maybe Kishimoto didnt want to have advanced weapons and technology because battles could be settled too easily
example:Itachi-your coming with me
Naruto-No!!!!!
Itachi-*pulls out a gun and shoots naruto*

Plus Deidara would probably use Nuclear weapons and giant destructive new age bombs instead of his stupid Play-Do(i dont own that)

Either that or it has no set time zone as someone mentioned earlier

It's probably an alternate universe. And then, at the end of the series, Chuck Norris will create a portal between the two worlds and assist Naruto and Co. in their battle against whoever. But that's just me. :P

I agree with that. People would be killed easily and the whole storyline would be screwed up.

I think its there own little world really, you can't call it past or present. I think they have some electricity. They got tolits blahh can't spell. They have hospitals and big buildings. Its just some things missing.


Edit- They do have some computers or things aswell. They got the communicator spy things talk back to back.

oooh very interesting. I also believe it's set in an alternate universe version of Earth, hence our solar system with Mars and everything.. I don't remember anything about Kabuto mentioning Cleopatra so could someone fill me in on that? I didn't even know they had Egypt I thought all the countries were different but that was just my assumption.. I believe it takes place not in like 2000 something but maybe just a completely different year since the calendar would be completely different.. However I think it would be like our world in some respects but as many fictional alternate universes (such as the Golden Compass) often mix past and present components as their pasts have taken different directions than the universe/Earth we know of. By the way, Quantum Physics is really getting into alternate universes/dimensions, it's possible the Naruto world could be really out there you never know.. However, I doubt we'd ever find it, and if not that, still, the possibilities are endless..

That was a great answer, and about the quantum physics thing, who knows, maybe they've already visited us, but then our demension was split in 2, so as to keep balance in the spacial time thing.
