    Default Running Forms

    Am I the only one that thinks that everyone in Naruto runs in a retarded way? I'm talking about how they have their arms at their sides pointing backwards and that the arms never move. It doesn't look cool to me and it doesn't serve any purpose seeing as how without using your arms you wouldn't be able to run nearly as fast as if you were using them.

    Just my opinion, but I think they run that way because it keeps their hands close to their hip at all times, making them able to reach for the weapons in the pouches on their belts. By the time they come to an immediate stop, they can already have pulled the weapon out and thrown it, rather than waste time bringing their hand back from flailing in front of them.

    why does anyone give a fuck how they run??? its a goddamn shounen manga!


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Ninjas run like that because typically they are holding sharp weapons in their hands. If you were running normal you will probably cut yourself. So since real ninjas ran like that, the fictional ones have to follow suit. Same thing goes for samurai and their fictional counterparts.
