Re: Question

Shōkan is the normal summoning of someone (into court etc.), kuchiyose refers to summoning a ghost or so through a medium. • Seelentau 愛 12:50, December 6, 2015 (UTC)

Itachi has naturally low chakra reserves.

Please don't try to change the article so he has average or above average reserves with that. Itachi even in Part I, when he was not sick and healthy could only use the Mangekyo THREE times a day. That's it. And one Mangekyo Sharingan Technique we know costs more than 30% of his total chakra. He has low reserves regardless of his illness.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 06:20, February 2, 2016 (UTC)

re: novels

Nothing changed. They still are non-canon. Just like fillers are non-canon. We note fillers in articles, so why not the novels?  WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 01:30, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

An extension of the manga? That's not necessarily true. Sure, it "fills in the gaps" of the manga, but a lot of it is still filler, and thus, non-canon. We note non-canon movies as well in articles, so there's no reason not to note the novels there too.  WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 01:34, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Stuff such as? Things are canon when Kishi says they are. If he doesn't indicate nor come out and say "this is a continuation of the manga" then it's not canon.  WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 01:36, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Okay sure. Still doesn't mean that the entire anime is canon all of a sudden. Again, if Kishi does not indicate a certain media is a continuation of his manga in some way, then it's not canon.  WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 01:40, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
No it doesn't. An author's involvement alone does not make things canon (I used to think the same way, so I understand). Kishi literally wrote the script for Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie but it's not considered canon here because he never indicated or said "this is a continuation of the manga" like he did for The Last and Boruto (notice how in Naruto's article, the only movies in the main branch are The Last and Boruto, not Road to Ninja despite Kishi's heavy involvement in it; all other movies have their own section under the "In Other Media" tab; why those movies aren't documented in that tab, I have no idea).
If an author's involvement alone in a series makes things canon, then by that logic, all things that the author is not involved in is non-canon, which is untrue (For instance, Star Wars. George Lucas is the creator of Star Wars. However, he had no involvement at all in the new SW movie The Force Awakens, due to him selling the rights of SW to Disney, but it's considered canon regardless. An author's involvement alone does not decide what's canon or not).
Canonicity is decided by a declaration in which whoever owns chief rights to a series confirms a work pertaining to that series is an official continuation of the author's original and main body of work. What is "canon" is declared by whoever has the chief rights of a series, which in the vast majority of cases, it's the original author of a series. In the unique case of Star Wars, George Lucas sold those rights to Disney, so now Disney decides what projects in SW now are canon and which are non-canon.  WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 15:35, February 6, 2016 (UTC)
