Kakashi has more secrets than he’s willing to accept, and even if you don’t think so, he’s always late and he’s also one of them.. Cause of irritation among his students and subordinates, this peculiar behavior of the ninja is one of those traits that both humanize and make the characters of the series so loved. Narutoand although it may not seem like it, there is a long story behind all this.

Kakashi and his friends

In fact Kakashi Hatake had always been a ninja obsessed with discipline and punctuality., which was seen during his apprenticeship days at the Konoha Ninja Academy under the tutelage of Minato Namikaze. The one who was late everywhere and was more carefree was Obito Uchiha, who would become the white-haired shinobi’s best friend.

Unfortunately, fate ended Obito’s young life, or at least that’s what Kakashi believed for a long time. However, before he died, Obito gave his Sharingan to Kakashi as a symbol of his friendship. That was how strong the bond that existed between the two shinobi was, so Obito’s goodbye deeply marked his friend for the rest of his life.

a peculiar tribute

When he lost his best friend, Kakashi started arriving late everywhere as a way to remember and pay tribute to Obito.. It didn’t matter so much that his students were angry with him for keeping them waiting as long as he was convinced that he would never forget his former colleague and friend.

When he began to train Team 7 made up of Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura, Kakashi did not abandon this peculiar custom, even when they were no longer even his formal students. However this is because Kakashi used to spend a lot of time visiting Obito and Rin’s grave, to the point that he forgot about his commitments and lost all notion of time.. Scenes in which the shinobi is seen talking to the tombstones of his former classmates are not uncommon, offering a sad portrait of why Kakashi was always unpunctual.
