No funfacts for chapter seven.
Funfacts about Japanese weddings: you give money to the couple on the day of the wedding, but no gifts otherwise. You bring gifts to them either before or after the wedding.
Another funfact: you don’t open gifts in front of the people who gave them to you, it’s considered rude. What if you don’t like it enough? Or too much? It’s embarrassing to have the gift-giver see what you think of the gift.
Another funfact: The reason Kakashi considered Obito and Shisui his brothers is because when male children in samurai lineages reached around 8 years of age, they were kind of apprenticed to other samurai to learn the tricks of the trade, and I’m having Kakashi’s mentor be those boys’ father. Basically he spent his youth living with them, which is why it was so painful for him to lose Obito.
Funfact: After a woman’s husband died she really was supposed to chop of her hair and join a monastery for the rest of her life, unless her in-laws wouldn’t have anyone to take care of them and in that case she’d stay and care for them. Or if she had kids, then of course there’s that whole motherhood thing.
Funfact: if you have certain guesses about Shisui’s gift then those guesses are probably right and yes, it was in the Edo period (which this story is set in) that erotic and pornographic manga (MANGA, for serious) and illustrations really gained popularity/were produced.
Funspoileralert: I’m so totally going to kill off the Uchiw/ha family later on. Totally. Going. To do it. Hopefully how will blow your minds. :D
Funfact: If one could, it was advisable to build another room onto one’s house when one got married…that way if it was a sleeping-in-separate-beds marriage, it wasn’t totally awkward. Japan rocked the proto-Victorian and Victorian before the Victorians were even Victorians.
