...didn't they explain this in like, episode 20 of the original series. (And they later emphasized on it when Naruto was learning the Rasen-Shuriken in Shippuden).
You can mold your chakra into different natures, some people have a bigger affinity to certain types, but everyone can do it. It's not far fetched that he's making water, at all. Kakashi did it in the first fight, so did Zabuza. I don't see how any of this is confusing you know, after 628 chapters. :S
That would be absolutely fucking insane.
It's not water it's earth, how its drawn it makes it appear to be water.
According to Kurama, the Juubi is the progenitor of everything that exists in the Naruverse, so making some tornado's with it's immense chakra seems easy. Also, where do you see water? For all we know it can be dirt.
Well yeah, anything is possible now that kishi brought in reality-altering abilities and giant energy bombs. The scale of fights now seems kind of like....every other show/series involving magic now?
@ Scot I'm not confused at the chakra abilities. I just found it odd/inconsistent. Oh well, Its hard to read sometimes for you so I'll let it go.
