ok, I'm just gonna come out and say it, Rin and Ran look the same as kids, Ran worked with Kakashi and Guy when they were young teens, and knew about if not saw Obito's death and how it affected Kakashi. Am I the only one that sees the connection? Ran could very possibly be Rin. I know the manga has shown Rin's death, so unless the animators of Naruto just don't stay up to date with Naruto, this is a very eery coincidence wouldn't you say?

Rin is very much dead. I believe that there was only one reason behind Ran's creation and that was nothing more that to draw an allusion to Rin.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 16:23, November 8, 2012 (UTC)
She doesn't have the face marking and isn't even a medical ninja, without a question it's not her--Elveonora (talk) 20:30, November 8, 2012 (UTC)
I know Rin is dead, but as the synopsis said Guy and Kakashi recall a a memory involving Rin. Is it only that the situation is similar? I don't believe so because Ran does exactly what Rin does, saves the two by fetching reinforcements. And Elveonra, she never showed any of her jutsu, and even though Kankuro's face paint changes doesn't mean he's a different character, aka she might just not have worn face paint when she grew up had she not died. Btw, I do believe Rin is dead, it's just this episode has seemed to mess up a little. Jiraiya1 10:27, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
It isn't that they are the same or the Episode screwed up, Since the latest revelation in the Manga, that Kakashi had chidorized Rin, This episode took that oppurtunity to make some Holy Fillers--They See Me Trollin, They Hatin ! 10:37, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
First of all, Rin's face paint could be as much face paint as the Akimichi or Inuzuka's markings. Ran is not Rin and that is the end of. What the writer(s) of the episode was trying to bring across was something symbolic and not literal, but apparently it was lost on some people. Go back and watch the episode and actually read the dialogue. This ridiculous conversation doesn't need to go on any further.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 11:23, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
