One of the subjects that has been coming up recently in the comments section has been the ages of the characters. So while we wait for the new issue of Naruto Manga 413 I’ve created this time line. It’s not perfect but it is based off of manga clues and Internet fan site research that corroboratesages of characters through deduction. Please comment if you have any gripes with the time line just don’t call me dumb as hell for trying before you lay the smack down. I’m also willing to add characters that you believe should be on here that I accidentally/purposefully left off.
Before you start to critique it though be wary that I’ve used the jump off point of 16 for Naruto. I believe this to be his current age in the manga and the best source I have to back up my theory is from the Editor at Absolute Anime who explains it better than I do:
“In Episode 56: Live or Die: Risk It All to Win It All!, the Third Hokage says that the fight between Kyuubi and the Fourth Hokage happened 13 years ago. Since the fight ended with Kyuubi being sealed inside the newborn baby Naruto, this statement would indicate that Naruto is 13 years old, even though the official Naruto databook gives Naruto’s age as 12 years old at the start of the series. This may not necessarily be a contradiction, however, as time has obviously passed since the first episode.”
So argue the other ages if you want but this age of 16 for Naruto is solid and the basis for all the other characters. If you think he’s still 15 then just subtract 1 from everyone’s age and you’ll have your answer.
