#970505 The Great Naruto Discussion Thread

Posted by gamma on 16 January 2019 - 08:16 AM

I've kind of always figured Naruto would be the one to die. You know, like Jiraiya and Asuma — in a meaningful, symbolic, loss-of-master-now-Boruto-has-to-step-up sort of way. Then Hinata would remain the sympathetic, super passive, long-suffering love interest that she is.

 

Cause if Hinata dies, then it makes Naruto look bad/weak. Not that it matters now though - lol.

 

Ideally I thought that the entire cast of K9 would survive in the end, happily celebrating their own accomplishments together. Maybe a third part showing the ropes of their lives and careers.

 

But yeah on the extreme end if someone were to get killed off/go missing for a while, it would have to be one or two of the members of Team 7. It would greatly challenge their goals, motives, and characters even, in a way that no secondary character could move them to do so. Endless outcomes to consider had that happened, and I would've definitely stuck around to see that instead of Burrito's Cashgrab Crusade.

 

I was so betting on Sasuke biting the dust though, for real. That guy has flirted with death so many times, done so many bad deeds... like it's a fact that him and plot armor are more intimate with each other than him and Sakura...

 

Yes if Hinata died and Naruto lived ... ooooohhhhh i can already imagine her fanatic will swarm him with lot's of curse and insult. Naruto can't protect his family , Naruto is incompetent husband , Naruto not only fail as father because he neglect his kids but fail as husband and man as well for letting the most precious female on earth died , etc. And if the other way around , Hinata lived and Naruto died : Hinata has done well as a wife , there's nothing she can do about it , shes not strong enough to protect his beloved husband it can't be help and it's understandable , and Naruto will be forgotten like fart .... :lmao:

 

:/ Not even Neji's death prompted major change with any facet of her character, other than her relationship status. There was no clarity on her ambitions thereafter and her personality remained the same, so I don't think she would be that much different if Naruto did die while married to her.

#969370 Writers, back up your stuff on FF.net...maybe....

Posted by gamma on 19 November 2018 - 11:41 PM

FFN added to the life span of docs? What a surprise lol, more time to make quick changes then. Personally I still keep all my writing within Google Docs.

 

I've been slowly warming up to AO3, especially since it's user friendly like mentioned, but I still prefer FFN simply because the interface and tagging system less complicated in the meantime. (That being said, I think it's a little unnecessary that they had to add in pairing brackets when people could have easily put a ship name in the description...)

#969016 The NEW NaruSaku Debate Thread

Minato was describe by everyone that talked about him as mister perfect, which also made him Mr. Bland when you finally start having him appear. He did have the picture we first saw that made him looks strict, also somewhat with Kakashi's gaiden. So, kishimoto may have thought of making him strict/serious, but probably changed that when he identified him as "himself married to his wife."


I feel like he’s kind of a fan service-y character? You mostly see him in what if scenarios with Kushina and baby Naruto as an ideal father, like the products above. I mean he really does remind me of Hinata in that way, cause they’re both perfect and boring but ambiguous enough for fans to fill in the holes for themselves and have fun with it. I don’t think they’d ever want to stain him as a two faced person because it would ruin his image.


#969010 The NEW NaruSaku Debate Thread

Posted by gamma on 23 October 2018 - 04:52 AM

The second Problem is what you mentioned. just a non-issue. he acts like konoha is his big family, ignoring the fact what they did to him. he acts like that chasing sasuke is a zero-threat, ignoring the fact how many of his friends (including sakura) died nearly because of that. Even when they praised him as a hero, there were 0 thoughts of him questioning the double-faced villagers who now seek to him for protection because he got stronger. He just accept it, plain and static.

 

Yes. It makes him look ignorant and childish if he wasn't hinted to have at least an ounce of cynicism in him at one point after the war. They did Naruto an injustice by making him accept Konoha's praise without letting him see the though the irony behind it.

 

Like the moment in the movie where girls were all over Naruto, giving him presents and swooning over him. Should that not have offed him, at all? Made him go "hmm this is great... but if I wasn't the hero that you needed, how would you all have treated me then?"

 

I'm really starting to think they should have rethought Minato's personality. Like, what I think they should have done is have him be a more cold character. Someone skilled, feared, put the good of the village ahead of the lives of it's individual members and a warmonger. It would really say something about the system if this was the actual person Naruto idolized, and part of Naruto's growth would have been him coming to realize the reality of who the Fourth was. Hell, you don't even need to make him Naruto's father, just have Naruto coming to terms with Minato was everything wrong with the ninja system.

 

Yeah, he seems too perfect. Like a rosebush without any thorns.  :ermm: It would have added much more depth to him too if he was shown to be aware of Konoha's deep dark secrets, missions and deeds but actively choosing to ignoring it and their consequences. I do like his personality, calm and kind, but there is just no edge or aggression behind it that you usually associate leaders with. It makes him look rather submissive imo.

 

Does anyone recall Schneizel, from Code Geass? Minato and him are very similar in respect to character and intelligence as leaders.

 

But Schneizel was much more deceptive with his kindness and charm. He used it as a ruse to gain the loyalty and respect of his subordinates and siblings, showing care for them one moment, but was willing to throw them aside had they got in his way of ambition in the next. He reassured his blind sister he wouldn't intentionally murder thousands of innocent lives, but he did it anyways.

 

This is the kind of edge I'm referring to (not as crazy though!) where he used his charm and white lies as a means for control and support, a weapon of sorts. Sincere on the outside, not so much underneath. I believe his could have been applied to Minato as well.

Lol hell no she didn’t do a thing except holding hands with wannabe Jesus while her dead cousin played wingman on the side

Hinata is a meaningful girl but c’mon. Her world is only centered around Naruto, and that’s about it. Her own teammates don’t matter that much either. That’s a low bar they’re setting up there, which makes me think Sarada wouldn’t fair any better either.


#967597 Sakura was written to be Disliked

Posted by gamma on 18 August 2018 - 12:51 AM

Sakura was not written just to be disliked. She started off smooth sailing till they ran out of ideas for her. Other elements also contributed to her dislike among fans: she was a main character who was normal, so expectations were high for her (and unfortunately didn't meet them). Kishimoto wasn't focused and descriptive enough with her, which was frustrating. She had a tsundere archetype geared towards the person who had a crush on her, which a majority of fans were not fond of. Her physical appearance and attitude was often scrutinized on and was shallowly viewed as being mean and not pretty enough compared to other girls.

 

Kishimoto never intended for Sakura to be disliked, but he gave them enough reasons for that anyways whether he knew it or not. :(

 

That actually is a good point. But I would also like to add to that. Not only was Sakura rarely used in fight scenes, but also she has a very mundane and one note power set that does not make for interesting fights nor can measure up to other more over the top supernatural abilities that pop up in the series. How does super strength and healing measure up to to powers like Rasenshuriken, Amaterasu, etc.? If she was more Like Guy and Lee and had uniqueness to her Taijutsu and became a physical threat to the likes of Madara and Obito then maybe the complaints would die down.

 

Like an example of a fascinating  tsundere that has fight scenes and a great and interesting power set for the setting she is in is Noelle from Black Clover. She has Water magic which seems mundane but her magic power is vast and she has spells for both offensive and defensive situations. so she has the ability And grit to stand beside Asta as both a love interest and as an equal.

 

But I digress, that does not explain the double standards of why Sakura is so hated though. Hinata is EVEN LESS USED in fight scenes than Sakura is and loses all personal fights she is in except against fodder and does not show to be a strong willed or determined girl like feminists like. Yet why is she so well loved? :shrug:

 

I thought that she would expand on her medical ninjutsu. While Naruto and Sasuke were more adept in blowing up half a continent, she could have instead focused on healing. To develop a new way to healing faster, more efficiently during battle? Maybe even going on her own independent adventure for a time, helping those in need. And meeting new people and a mentor on the way. And discovering new cures? Or with enough ambition and courage, to figure out and learn Chiyo's forbidden jutsu? 

 

And I always envisioned her to be an awesome gambler too, surpassing Tsunade in that field too :hehehe: . So many possibilities with Sakura, it's fun to think about it actually...

I wish we'd seen more serious aggression from Sakura that didn't have anything to do with comic relief.

 

A Sakura that isn't afraid to spill some blood and break some bones for her friends if she had to.
