Yeah, the forgiveness in Naruto is WAAYYY over the top. In other series, the bad guys are either trying to do right, serve time while regretting their actions, or get exactly what they deserve.
Oh man, the HInata obsession is insane. The fans can't take a joke or accept criticism of the character. I remember watching Naruto SD, the one where Akamaru peed on HInata, and the comments were "Hinata didn't deserve that!" I mean, really? You can't take a parody of your favorite character as it should be? And others going "If Sakura gets with Naruto, I swear to god I'll choke that b****!" How? Did they believe they have some reality breaking abilities to do that? "Oh, but she saved Naruto-!" You mean she was a PLOT DEVICE. If she "saved" Naruto she would have either pulled the rods out or beaten Pein, something I'm sure they would rather see. Sakura gets kitten for punching Naruto despite the fact that he gets up everytime, but are okay with Himiwari making her dad miss her own inauguration? Jeez, what's wrong with these people!?
I swear, this series is now Twilight for teenage boys! The ships are the only things that get any of them excited, and if you dare criticize any character who isn't Sakura, you're going to get it! I'm just sad looking at this series and it's fanbase regressed into. Back when I got into Naruto, the ships were barely talked about, people paid more attention to the fights, and you were free to criticize Kishimoto for anything! Now, the ships are all people talk about, I don't here a thing about any of the fights, and if you dare say something bad about Kishimoto, it's the firing squad for you!
I feel like we should lock Justin Beiber and Hinata in a room. They share a lot in common in terms of crazy fanbases...
