There's been a lot of debate on Kurama's size, so i decided to calc to clear it up.
The calc During the flashback of when Naruto was born in chapter 501, Kurama was unsealed from Kushina. Kushina was being held in chains attached to rocks. The black bit with wite pants in the picture is Kushina standing upright as seen in a later scan.
Now first thing to do is calculate the height of the rocks, since above those rocks is where Kurama is going to appear. To do this we use the relation of a standing Kushina in comparison to the height of the rocks to the complete left and right. Kushina measures 165 centimeters which is 32 pixels in the picture. Using the pixel-scaling program ImageJ to then measure the height of the rock on the right gives a height of 1603,594 centimeters. Doing the same measurement for the rock on the left gives a length of 1588,125 centimeters. This means that the average rock size is (1603,592+1588,125)/2 = 1595,8585 cm or roughly 15,96 meters.
Now that we have the size of the rocks, let's look at the panel where Kurama comes out of Kushina. You can see Kurama towering over the rocks.
Using this panel we can calculate the height of Kurama standing above those rocks. Using the same scaling idea, we'll now scale Kurama from those rocks (since Kushina is so small you can't scale directly from her). Using the average of 1595,80 centimeters for both, the scale was set at the right rock with it's height of 21 pixels measuring this. Measuring the left rock afterwards gave it a height of 1659,68 centimeters so as is visible there is some uncertainty in the scaling albeit it being below 10% of the actual value makes it acceptable. Now measuring from Kurama's teeth to the ground puts it's length (with the back legs partially stretched out) at 39002,57 centimers which due to the uncertainty we'll just round down to 390 meters.
Now given as we can see in the previous scans Kurama's tails are about the same length as his body. Due to this we'll could assume his tails are 390 meters in length. This is furthermore supported by the instance of Kurama charging a Bijuudama where his tails curl to in front of his mouth. However to make it more accurate we use the relation of tails to body length from 50% Kurama as seen in chapter 499 as despite being smaller it still has the same bodily proportions as Kurama.
Using the distance of the middle between the ears till the the line perpendicular to Kurama's body length which ends at Kurama's stretched-out leg as 390 meters since it most resembles Kurama's length and pose during the previous scan. This gives a value of Kurama's tail length of 535,93 meters, rounded down to 536 meters. This is of course with some inaccuracies in the order of 10s of meters due to the fact that the lengths have inaccuracies in measuring them, with as a result that the tail length may be shorter.
To get some insurance we use the scan in which we see a sealed Kurama to determine the tail's length since here Kurama is almost stretched flat.
Using the distance of the chains between the legs to the middle of Kurama's ears here in relation to the tail's length to determine the length of the tail gives a value of 439,75 meters till the curved bit of the tail. Given that this is almost all of Kurama's tail as seen in the scan this puts Kurama's tail length logically at a maximum of 536 meters and at minimum at 440 meters.
Now we try to get Kurama's height it's standing on all fours like it usually does. As can be seen throughout the series in numerous instances as when the fox attacked Konoha
and the instance in which he first appears in a flashback to attack Konoha
one can see that the Kyuubi's lower arms make up almost the entire height of the Kyuubi.
Now using the same scan of the sealed Kurama used to calculate the tail's length to calculate the length of it's bottom arm (measured from the palm to the joint) we get a value of 103,77 meters. This means that Kurama stands just over 100 meters tall.
Now how credible is this calc? As can be seen during the previously shown scans of the invasions of Konoha at chapter 1 and chapter 502, Kurama towers over the buildings and the large trees that the Narutoverse possesses (shinobi can freely jump through them and fall over 10 meters just falling off the branches on the side of the trunk). Furthermore it can be seen during the invasion scan that Kurama's head is roughly the size of a multi-story building and in the scans below that a horizontally fired off Bijuudama reaches the faces near the top of the hokage monument, on which we can see Minato standing and which Naruto at chapter 1 can be seen in relation to it as well.
This should give enough credibility to the calc due to the size of the hokage monument furthermore being comparable to modern-day flats in the distance as seen during the final chapter.
One thing to keep in mind though is that the relation of Kurama to the buildings and trees also depict it as being smaller, which may mean that Kurama is in fact a bit smaller than the calc indicated. Nonetheless Kurama's dimensions should be in the same order of magnitude.
And so you ask what can this calc furthermore be used for? This calc of Kurama's height can also be used to determine the size of Madara's Perfect Susanoo and the mountainous-looking rock formation from chapter 621 of the Naruto manga. Here it can be seen that 100% Kurama's slash while it was clad in Madara's Perfect Susanoo reaches nearly the top of the rock formations.
This would mean that the mountain-looking formation seen in Naruto are in fact at best small mountains with a height of under 300 meters due to the fact the barely over 100 meters in height Kurama made a horizontal slash while on practically all fourse to above half of the mountains.
Furthermore while clad in Madara's Perfect Susanoo it is visible that the Perfect Susanoo (cloak) stands as tall as Kurama's length while it's on it's behind, which was calced at 390 meters.
It can also be used to calc Hashirama's wooden buddha statue size with it, but that's work for another calc.
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
