    Anime realism (can't fully explain in a title)

    I can't summarize what I'm trying to ask so I will explain.
    In animes/mangas such as Naruto (Which I think better exemplifies what I'm trying to say) where most or everyone in it is capable of amazing, literal earth shattering feats, for example when doing a certain special move/jutsu a character will leave behind craters or what not (best example is when Naruto is trying to learn one of his key Jutsus, there is a shot of the training area and how desemated and destroyed it was. Or the fight between two large creatures in the forest.
    (Bare with me, the question is coming up soon)

    If Naruto can cause so much damage and we are led to believe in the Ninja world he is indeed a low-level nobody, my question is how come we don't the damage in the world map caused by other ninjas who are supposedly better than Naruto trying to create their own jutsus. All we ever see when characters are walking around the open world are picturesque landscapes, without the odd booms and bangs in the air or the odd crater here and there?

    (Hope that made sense, its just been bugging me for a while.)

    I sort of agree with you. They should have been doing this but as they said in the manga and the anime, he is the most reckless one. Maybe thats why but Garra and his Shukaku iddnt make craters bacuase san did not do these things and the sand mostly engulfs there person. Its not this anime too its also most animes that have somthing to do with powers beyond us by miles.

    I don't suppose it's possible to edit either of your posts for the sake of spoilers?

    i kind of agree with u guys, but i mean.. in the naruto example... i dont see many ninjas with huge beasts battling... yeah.. many ninjas could be more conservative and not destroy the area around theme... or maybe they just dont want to show the destructon other reasons

    Well, how many ninja are 1) Reckless 2) Bloated with their own self-importance and 3) have the spirit of the legendary nine tailed fox within them?

    I don't know the answer. I don't watch naruto. It is an interesting question, but the answer that must be concluded on is quite unfulfillingly simple: it's because he's the main character. The scope of the show is not made to be relative to the Hokage, who obviously must possess so much more power than Naruto, but rather to make a shonen action show that appeals to the audience, which requires lots of big explosions and a lovable, if dumb, main character.

    Well the reason that u don't see destroyed lanscapes and the worn land from constant training is simple. They want to focus on the results of training rather than the actual training itself. If there were craters all over the place it would convey a darker/gloomier apperance to the show. Instead of its bright skys and picturesque landscapes. I hoped that anwsers your question.

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    You could argue that Ninjas are suppose stay in the shadows and not draw attention to themselves is whats preventing the massive destruction of the landscape, but the reality is that the writers simply don't want reality to get in the way of a good story... A common symptom with many a work of fiction...
