Today, Heaven & Earth is 11 years old!
A lot has happened in the past year, starting with the shocking manner in which the Naruto manga ended. The entire Naruto fandom pretty much imploded when the controversial ending was published, and the New Era Project was revealed.
Back then, I must admit I was extremely uncertain of how things would turn out for H&E and the NaruSaku fandom. While there were touching messages of support from other fandoms, many NaruSaku fans still needed time to process their feelings over the ending. After all, many of us did follow the manga closely for years.
But now? It has been incredible to see the NaruSaku fans band together and come out stronger! Many of us still have a love for the way the manga used to be, especially the way the characters used to be. Back then, they were touching, funny, exciting and inspirational. It's been inspiring to see fans try to carry on the old spirit of Naruto in their new fanfics and fanart!
Thank you, guys, for rekindling my love in the manga. Whatever happens to the Naruto franchise, I will always be a NaruSaku fan.
So, thank you to everyone for coming here, and to everyone in the NaruSaku fandom for being awesome and inspiring!
