Land of the Sea arc

Is it really necessary to have information from this filler up despite contradicting with the manga canon? in my opinion, it should be removed or at least having a headline put on top, to make it clear that it's not official.

  • According to the manga, Orochimaru was still a "loyal" Konoha Ninja AT LEAST/CIRCA 6 years after Minato's death, thus Anko had "abandoned" village with him as 17 years old at earliest.... that contradicts with her being a child in anime during "that time"
  • Another proof is Jugo's age, hopefully I don't have to calculate as it's clear.

It brings two issues:

  1. false information listed in the article
  2. there's a chance that Kishi might explain the canonical circumstances of why did she leave etc. thus both the anime-manga version can't stay I guess. EDIT:

This has been discussed a few times already, never concluded, often ignored. I think it's very important--Elveonora (talk) 22:58, November 4, 2012 (UTC)

As the only (probably) Anko expert in this wiki, I did do the math, and because the Land of the Sea Arc is a filler, it does make things quite confusing and false for Anko's backstory. However, the idea of removing does not suit well with me. Despite it not being canon to the actual plotline, it still needs to be noted, seeing it is the first and (possibly as of now until Kishi-sensei decides to give her background, which he better or I'm going to be mad!) only inside look of her past. Besides, the article clearly lists "In the anime..." during the parts that lists what happened in the filler arc already. Honestly, I don't really know what do with the article. I do know we shouldn't remove from what we saw in the anime.--NinjaSheik 17:12, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

The filler picture has already been removed. That's good, but now I'm not sure about quotes... the last 2 are filler. I don't remember the manga ever getting into such detail about the relationship between her and Orochimaru. Shouldn't they be just canonical to define and showcase the character?--Elveonora (talk) 21:02, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, you're right. I put them there a long time ago, but you can remove them, if you wish.--NinjaSheik 21:13, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

age again

No, I didn't miss the above topics. No databook = no age. But, she is clearly 24 in Part I. thus no 23-24 or 24-25. so we don't have to be afraid of making a mistake due to months. Another reason is, for her birthday being in October, just like Naruto's, thus once the latter turns 17, she will be 28 only 2 weeks later. Since Naruto is 16 at the moment in the story (unless Kishi updates and 4th databook or manga says otherwise) Anko is 27. Why don't we list it when it's a given? Funny as there's no problem with Mei being in her "30's "--Elveonora (talk) 16:21, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I thought about the same thing a while back, but rules are rules. As much I wanna change it, can't do that without everyone's agreement.--NinjaSheik 17:06, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Her age is 100% correct, I say hypocrisy since Mei's age is only "circa" and Killer B's only guessed/estimated... sounds like double standards--Elveonora (talk) 21:06, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Well, you do have a point, but this subject has been debated about for a while now, so I don't know what to do...--NinjaSheik 21:15, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

New page?

Could a page be made about the giant blue snake she summons to break a wall.? Munchvtec 15:01, January 17, 2014 (UTC)munchvtec

No. Much like unnamed Nara clan member #45 and unnamed Akimichi clan member #88, just a mention of them in a more central page, in this case the Snakes article is enough, and said mention is already there. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:28, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

One of the ANBUs who saved her is the boar ANBU, right? So why we don't have a page about him cuz he appears along with Yugao and 2 another guys in this chakra cyrcle thingy, and he also appears in a lot of fillers, so why don't we make a page about him? Not me cuz I am dumb and I tried and nothing happened, so can someone make a page about him? Fillers: In the arc where Kabuto searces for bodys in Konohagakure in the graveyard, he along with the Boar ANBU were guarding. In shadow of ANBU arc he appears in mission with Kakashi and the Boar ANBU (Agin, so we can mark the Boaer ANBU as his partner) and then talks with Minato for Kakshi's powers OVA: He was waiting for the toilet in OVA 4 Steelwolf8 (talk) 20:46, June 1, 2014 (UTC) SteelWolf8

Free from the Mugen Tsukuyomi?

She is not mentioned again after kabuto is defeated, and she was left behind the in the cave after the battle. So because of that there was no way for the Mugen Tsukuyomi's light to reach her. So shouldn't she also have been spared from the effects of the genjutsu like the revived kages and team 7?SageM (talk) 21:28, September 5, 2014 (UTC)SageM

The light of Infinite Tsukuyomi can reach anywhere.--Elveonora (talk) 21:41, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

Team Anko

In the epilogue, can we say that she is the Sensei of Chocho, Inojin and Shikadai ?--Salamancc (talk) 12:04, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

Well, Chocho confirmed, not sure about the other two, but sounds reasonable--Elve [Mod] Talk Page|Contribs 12:07, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
They are academy students not genins, there is no Team Anko, yet at least. Rage gtx (talk) 12:32, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
She could very well be something like ebisu considering they are both tokubetsu jonin. Munchvtec (talk) 13:17, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
