What year is Narutoworld?

Pervert Hermit

Next Konoha's Yellow Flash
Anyone know what is the approximate year this story is being happening?

I've seen VCR & TV during the Chunin exam. High tech medical device in Orochimaru's hideout. Modern day slot machines in casinos.

I've seen lots of high tech devices and yet there are no automobiles or computers.

What exactly is the time period this story takes place in?
 
Kishimoto: "Current times, except with Ninja instead of an Army. And no guns."

Really, they have Electricity Pylons, too.
 
Movies are all fillers and Kishimoto have little to say about what they do in the anime.
 
Can i ask you guys a question? What do you think of that the whole modern in some ways........really, really not modern in others? I am doing something in my own novel that is similar and just wanted to know if there is a market for it. Most fantasy readers can be pretty brutal when comes to things they expect. Now that I think about it........ manga readers too!!

Those medical devices in Orochimaru's hideout were computers.

Though I know the movies aren't considered canon, there really isn't anything that would cause any problem in the manga's plot. I'm gonna list some surpizing technology in the movies:

First Movie: Movie theater, snow trucks, train, kunai gatling gun, some flying craft, some jet pack-like devices, and those chakra devices.

Second Movie: Huge war ship, cannons, elevator, more computers, GPS, and that one body machine thing.

they stopped counting the days when gai was born

because there is no other time then gai-time


lol lol :p smile-big

its like BG (before Gai) and AG (after Gai) instead of BC (Before Christ) and AC (After Christ)

lol lol imagine it Ferraris in Naruto.....

Sandaime would have been all like ... "need a lift" in his Ferrari ... to all them bitches in the village
 
So it's imaginary world where Ninjas are the army. Villages are still in old "Samurai" world. Modern day technology does exist, but entire villages wants to be remain in old world.

Wow, Kishi's mind does works in a weird way.
 
The villages may be old because they were originally founded in older times, before the more "modern" villages were founded. Also, as for the army not using firearms, there may be a good reason for that. Why use firearms when you can control chakra and infuse silent weapons with chakra to get comparable, if not superior, results. We've seen Asuma's trench knives go through a tree and stick in a rock, and Asuma was holding back when he did that. If he wasn't the knife would have gone through the rock as well. While chakra could be added to bullets in guns, there may be the issue of the gun barrel melting when the chakra infused bullet was fired, or even the gun blowing itself apart. There is also the noise to consider. Ninjas are silent enemies. Guns would give away a ninja's position to the enemy and they could have a lot of guys on them in an instant. Another thing that needs to be considered is the fact that jonin-level ninja and above could be bullet resistant, or may be fast enough to dodge, or too fast to accurately target them. There may also be the fact that the lack of cars or planes could mean that the hidden villages don't want the outside world to know about them. They may be trying to stay under the radar, so to speak. Don't forget that the Land of Waves had motor vehicles in the form of cranes and even motor boats. As a result, it is difficult to place a year for the Naruto world. I would say current day to the not so distant future, about twenty or thirty years at most.
