Continuity mistake: In "Enter: Naruto Uzumaki!" During the confrontation scene with Naruto, Iruka and Mizuki, watch the shoulder of Iruka's vest. First, it's pinned to the wall behind him after Mizuki first attacks. When Iruka first yells at Mizuki not to tell Naruto the truth about his past, his vest is free from being pinned, yet when he yells at Mizuki the third time to stop, his vest is again pinned to the wall and Iruka rips the shoulder of his vest out from the kunai that pinned it there.

The two on the right is looking straight ahead and the one on the far left is looking to the left. But when a close up of the heads are shown, the two on the right are looking to the right and the one on the left is looking straight ahead.

Question: Why were the preliminary trials for the Chunin exam done as single elimination? It would not really cause the best of the best to be chosen because when two strong Ninjas fight (like Gaara and Rock Lee) one has to lose, while when two weak ninja (Sakura and Ino) fight, one gets to go through, only to be guaranteed failure. How is that fair?

Answer: Out-of-character, because single elimination is the most exciting format for the viewers of the anime. In-character, a possible reason is that the failure of single elimination to correctly identify the second and lower places was only recognised relatively recently - there is an essay by Lewis Carroll (yes, that Lewis Carroll), describing the problem in detail, written in 1883. Ninjas were around in about the 1300's, so it probably hasn't been discovered yet. Of course Naruto's history might not match real history but if you depart from reality then there can be no answer but the out-of-character one.
