I'm repeating a bit of what other people said but Thurday was Naruto's golden time because it was right after pokemon. When Naruto was in its prime it was a power hour for rating. After its decline it was still able to hold on by leeching off people that don't immediately change the channel after pokemon ends. Because Pokemon is one of the few big anime that is not on Sunday the time around it is sought after. The fact that it has sometimes been on that time slot is probably partially why it probably got to the kids. The Sunday move is as they see it high risk high reward situation. The problems are like we both said the constantly changing schedule is going to annoy the audience, but also since they are going into a competitive day/time if they can't secure the time they picked they at risk of losing their audience to other shows.
The problem with Marvel is sales overall are declining in the comicbook industry, and it is in someways marvel's fault.
That was clear from Sakura's speech in the last which was one of the major criticism of the movie.
Sakura's speech in the last was suppose to be about the "true love" of nH/SS, and there was never anything in nor to NS.
However the phrasing of her speech, the situation, and connecting the speech to the large story -even trying to ignore the manga, and just focusing on the movie- turns it into: "Naruto the reason I rejected he offer of being your girlfriend awhile back is because I realize what kind of person you are. You are a cold emotionless liar that doesn't understand any feeling including love, your ideology is mere sophism based on things you have no understanding of in an attempt to become popular, and you only pursued me is because you wanted to beat Sasuke at something. Sasuke despite all his faults is a better man then you, and has more genuine feeling for me then you do. I'm trying to put you, and Hinata together out of pity. She is so madly in love with an ideal you that she will never realize who you really are, and not getting together with you will destroy her. So, I'm helping her in hopes she can maybe teach you something about human emotions." That's me being nice.
AND YET Sakura was being the exact same thing to Sasuke. The whole "It takes one to know one" part of hypocrisy is very apparent here
And again I can never shut up about this, girls letting go of their first loves makes them horrible women but Men can let go of their first loves because they need to give their love to a women that DESERVES IT? And I suppose Ino let go of her first love so that makes her a two timing bi-atch am I I right!!??
Actually, if we went with the logic behind Sakura's speech Sasuke should have a harem of at least seven women, and Sakura should be completely fine with that. Like they would ever do it, but that speech was just for permanently dismissing NS, and promoting nH (and maybe SS if you squint.) So, instead once you try to apply the speech to the story you end up with something like I said up above or what you said.
