Something I noticed...

Post by Starlight on Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:35 pm

I know you guys don't like parallels but when I read 669 again I noticed that Minato called Lee 'Lee-kun' Gaara 'Gaara-kun' and Sasuke 'Sasuke-kun'. Same for Hinata she calls Kiba 'Kiba-kun' Shino 'Shino-kun' and everyone else. They both say 'Kun' (or 'San') at the end of (most) people's name. Just saying. Coincidence? I think not

I think Minato and Hinata are both gentle, kind and polite. That explains the -kun at the end of the names. If I'm not wrong it is also a sign of respect and affection in Japan...

Anyway, this topic will be moved in the "Naruto discussions" board as it has more to do with the similarities between two characters of the Narutoverse.

This is where the fact that most official translations (and some fan translations) are not completely consistent with the official Japanese comes into play.

Hinata and Minato always address people with honorifics. The only character I believe that Minato did not use a honorific with was Kushina when they were already together in the manga. Lee is another character that uses honorifics with everyone (except for the members of Team Gai). Hinata is one of the few characters who has no exceptions when it comes to honorifics. This honorific usage is basically meant to highlight how extremely polite Hinata (and those who also do it) are.
