  • Its been a long time I am starting a discussion on the forum. So is there any explanation as to why Hanabi never went to the academy, I mean the Hyugas are probably the richest clan of Konoha, especially after Uchihas are wiped out they are the top noble clan, so don't they need like formal education. Just cause Hanabi is strong doesn't mean she wont study other stuffs related to shinobi history and life. And does this also imply that Hyuga main branch heads are almost all uneducated by ninja standards and only rely on their hiden ninjutsu and taijutsus.


    [NB: Dont come up with comments like do you even watch the anime or read the manga, not on me or anyone asking question in the discussion section. I think that's pretty rude and people can miss some details, not a big deal, thanks]

    • In the end, you go to the Ninja Academy to be a Ninja. On the other hand, Hanabi was being groomed to become the Clan Leader, and likely had her own special curriculum that prepared her for that role. It's unlikely that she would be sent on missions anyway, although she presumably could be hired as a specialist if needed.

      I don't think this implies that all Hyuga are uneducated by the Academy (Neji and Hinata went, after all). But the Hygua have special abilities that the Academy can't teach, like the Gentle Fist, byakugan use etc. In that sense, being home schooled is better for the Hyuga.

      It seems to me though that just as not all Uchiha were police (Sasuke's mom was, as far as we know, a stay-at-home mom), not all Hyuga are Ninja. But they are all trained in at least their clan basics, like how the Uchiha perform Fireball to be considered adults and the Hyuga can do Gentle Fist.

      We never saw her in the academy despite her talent. At her age, Itachi and Kakashi had already graduated. So if she'd been, we almost certainly would've seen so.

      So confirmed? No. Implied? sort-of.

      Well, I think there was a hint on a special programm during the flashback with Hiashi and Kurenai, when the latter questioned him if it's okay to let Hinata be her subordinate as a genin despite the status of the heir to the Hyuha main family.

    • We have seen her at ages 7, 9, and 13. All outside academy hours/settings and mostly anime only. Most of Naruto's generation graduated at 12, so by the time of The Last, which im like 80% sure is the first time she has appeared in-canon since part 1, she would have graduated, especially if she is advanced as she is.

    • You know, if Hanabi had actually gone to the academy and gotten some hands on experience with the Shinobi World she wouldn't have gotten snagged and had her eyes ripped out in The Last so easily. If she's meant to be the clan leader the Hyuga clan is pretty screwed.

    • Still, Hanabi was pretty awesome in what little we saw of her in Boruto...which is a good thing because Hiashi did NOT age well.

      A general and president can't do jutsu and don't have Byakugan, your point is invalid. If the clan leader is weak, the clan suffers. You didn't see Madara hanging back on the battlefield when he was the Uchiha Clan leader.

      the hyuga branch family's goal is to safeguard the main family, the main family's goal is to safeguard the secrets of the byakugan, they do not go to war, they do not become regular shinobi. had hinata not been so meak and didn't hold back when she was fighting hinabi when they were young. she would have become the heir and would not have gone to the academy, as such hinabi also never went to the academy

    • Honestly being strong isn't enough if you're not a genius like Neji or a tactical expert like Sasuke you better go get some education from the real world to gain knowledge and do some missions to gain experience.

      If you're safeguarding something as important as your clan's kekkai genkai it is logical to train at least to a somewhat competent degree. If you're not going to send the heir (i.e. the future clan leader) to the academy I would at least expect for the specialised heir training to be as good if not better. Which it blatantly isn't when you have Hanabi getting punked by one of Toneri's fodder puppets. Admittedly she was probably not focusing a lot on training in The Last and eventually showed massive improvement in Boruto. But come on, this is the reason why the Hyuga quickly became a joke post Part 1 especially when compared to their cousins on the moon who are probably vastly superior.

      All I'm saying is it was pretty disgraceful for the future clan leader to get molly whopped by fodder and have such a pure set of Byakugan stolen like taking cake from a baby.

      Leader skills don't have to be combat skills. Shikamaru is an excellent general but a weak fighter.

    • But even Shikamaru is capable of basic defence and improved upon his skills as a Shinobi as well, intelligence and strategy are important but if you can't protect yourself then you haven't properly considered all the possible worst case scenarios.

      Sure, but do you honestly think he could've defended against Toneri? He doesn't have the firepower to blow up all those puppets. Neither did Hanabi.

      I don't think it matters terribly, as it was pointed out earlier that for all we know, she did tend to the academy. On the other hand, sending out the Heir to your clan out to battle where she may easily be captured and used for leverage is also not terribly smart. All in all, i think it's fine that she (presumably) got home-taught (it's not like the academy can teach her how to use her Byakugan or Gentle fist anyway), and presumably she will be eased into the role of Leader over time. Don't forget that normally Genin are supposed to find stray cats and do small tasks. I'm sure she could get that experience herself within the clan.

    • It's not like I'm asking her to take on all those puppets and Toneri but I don't know maybe putting up some resistance would have been nice or hell maybe even escaping to the safety of the entire clan. Anything other than being suckered. I guess it's no biggie, Hanabi seems to be back to her more competent self in Boruto and not...whatever she was in The Last.
