Did that guy actually make an animation of them in bed? Because what I saw were stills of

Why on earth he’d voluntarily post that online is beyond me, knowingly that you’d be representing Kishimoto’s team in doing so. I mean thank goodness that they somehow find nothing attractive about Sakura, or the other girls for that matter.

A Haikyuu staff did the same thing and drew an explicit scene with two of their male characters and got fired as a result. So I expected this to happen sooner or later with Naruto, esp since the animators have such a huge hard on for her. Did he get punished whatsoever? I hope so.

Jonghyun’s suicide note was incredibly painful to read. The heartache, the stress, the pressure he felt, thinking he wasn’t good enough. Now looking back at videos of him smiling and laughing, no one ever knew the true magnitude of his depression underneath it all. He was so young, had an amazing career with SHINee, and just starting his solo career a year ago.

I hope he can finally rest well now, truly.

Mostly likely. Maybe IPB isn’t too compatible with mobile, or visa versa? (I don’t think the mods here, for this site, can do anything about it... I think it’s something the developers of IPB need to either fix or update.)

A 2k word count takes me at least a couple hours to do on a good day lol. Little by little though...

Those pairings were better for part 3, because it let a lot of cheap drama be created. It would have a lot less believable for NS to be a miserable family with a son who hated Naruto.

Haha, I agree. There’s a lot of disconnect between the each of the two pairings to exploit for cheap drama. SS with Sasuke being non-existent & NH with Hinata unwilling to speak up or challenge Naruto’s periodic absences. They just don’t work.

If NS had something like this, I’d imagine Sakura calling Naruto out on it like “How you been? What’s been going on lately? The kids miss you a bunch. How can we plan this better and work this out, together?”.

Or maybe Naruto sneaking out his office while a clone does all the work so he could see kids over at GRANDPA Kizashi’s while GRANDMA Mebuki makes riceballs and udonnnn. Or maybe even bringing to their kids to work on days that aren’t so busy, letting them color on the floor and scratch his desk with permanent markers and paint and then he joins in and oops they screwed up his desk oh well :^)

When you've been playing the character that long, acting out his every thought and line, you gain a solid idea of how he thinks and operates. Junko lived and breathed Naruto the character for nearly 15 years. Prior to the ending, when she would comment on NS, it was as if she was speaking as a matter of fact (i.e. looking forward to when Naruto finally confessed, what their kid's name would be, etc).

She would’ve been really passionate and thrilled as Naruto had NS gotten together too..

what could have been you guys _(:3 」∠)_

Any puke or feel like slapping Hinata on the head for this kitten?


10+ years later & she still not done stitching.. I feel sorry for her fans honestly.


Her fixation on that scarf was one of the stupidest things written in that movie. Girl, your plot-device of a sister flew off the moon with a strange guy & all you can think about was Naruto and that damn scarf!!

#952163 What would be your Next Generations: Beginning?

Posted by gamma on 17 October 2017 - 06:49 PM

I wouldn't want to start it from the next generation as in their kids.
I think I would have rather seen Naruto and Sakura and maybe Sasuke (would be kinda funny), take on a genin team. I think that would have been more interesting and would have. Had fresh faces compared to the genin team now that is of course a bit of a replica of the old rookie 9.
This would have given the chance to see someone else with different abilities as main protagonist. Which is something I would have preferred. It would have also given us the chance to see Naruto in a leadership role and make the orders/show us how he becomes Hokage.

Yes, I second this! I'm not particularly interested in a re-do of characteristics and tropes immediately after (maybe as an OVA or a one-shot). And Sasuke with an annoying set of bratty genins aww :^) It would've been really funny to see that. I would think they'd humble and humanize him a bit too!

I love the idea of Sakura taking on a team, and of the three feel she's the most likely to do so and would be the best at it. I can't see Naruto or Sasuke taking on genin, though both have humorous opportunities to bring if they attempted it.
Also support the idea of an entirely new protagonist. Didn't think about that.

I'd love to see Sakura take an individual student under her wing and nurture him/her as either a full on medic or a medic-nin, one that seemed as determined as Sakura was with Tsunade.

I think all three of them woulda been great, in their own way, at managing a genin team~

#950620 The whole Fake Confession bit is one of the worst written parts of the series

Posted by gamma on 02 October 2017 - 04:47 AM

As other's have said and echoed: Sakura's confession wasn't a lie. She did have feelings for Naruto, that of more than a friend, but she didn't 100% understand them as yet.
Rather, Sakura was more focused on Naruto's well being and what she thought would be the best decision for him while ignoring her own. She was not thinking about Sasuke at all during that time, she was thinking about him. And she still went to try and kill Sasuke herself afterwards, still determined even after what Naruto said to her, in front of their friends. He basically told her that he hated her in that instant---words that I thought he'd mull over and maybe regret telling her---, but she still was willing to make the sacrifice.
Sakura's intentions was good, but she went about it in not the best way. Though, I've always wondered how she felt during that confrontation, if she had regrets afterwards and so on. 
While this situation was the most frustrating thing regarding this pairing, I then saw this as a good opportunity to strengthen their relationship to something much more meaningful (no mud, no lotus), if it was brought up and expanded on, especially after Sasuke came home. But it wasn't. It was left up in the air, never returned to. NS would not have felt completed to me if this scene wasn't revisited, even if they'd ended up being canon.
So I agree, that was pretty bad decision in the romance department to just leave this alone as is, but that sentiment is affiliated with Kishimoto & Co. I honestly shouldn't have put too much hope in him during the time, had I known this. Because why say "I love you" out of the blue, whether or not it was a lie, and not bring it up again? This moment needed to be talked about again cause it's too heavy to be ignored. This had massive potential to it, good drama that I'd be woke for, but nah, so be it.

To defend the romance genre slightly, speed is a necessity but just as often an elapse of time is passed to give this effect. Also extraordinary events could very well have accelerating effects. But the first is a fair criticism. 
The second is also a fair point, if the writer wanted to make it romantic with the necessary changes. I do prefer this depth in growth of a relationship, though the effect isn't lost, their friendship is noticeably closer than most. I would only retort that the other pairings were also not rushed.

I think of writing romance like building a building. An extraordinary event, like two people meeting and befriending each other for the first time, is like the foundation of this building. Other significant events to a lesser extent are the floors. It's important yes, but without beams and columns and sheetrock to lift and hold the floors together, then the entire building starts ceasing to exist.

You can have all the major moments you want, but if you do not follow up on that, then it's pointless to have them there in the first place.

They didn't spend more time together pre-last. The last is about their relationship going from 0 to 100 in a few hours.

This is why I hate romance movies in general, trying to squeeze in enough information and moments in the frame of 2 hours to try and make sense of a relationship. You don't look at someone, and suddenly out of nowhere realize "omg i love you" just like that. It's too fast, it doesn't do it for me. The Last was no different for me when I watched it, if only worse with character assassinations left and right, coated in a heaping pile of shoujo glitter at the end of it.

This is one of the reasons why I prefer NS. It's a slow culmination of moments written for 10+ years, among other things. We got to see all the little moments of their relationship together; walking, talking, fighting together, thinking about one another, being silly, and so forth.

It feels genuine, because it wasn't rushed.

Boruto is like a spanish soap opera.
Trying to kill eachother isn't melodramatic, it's like you said, tragic.

It's horribly cringey and pathetic for both of them. That DNA test was just an example, a big "WTF is this really happening" moment for the entire fandom. That was like some Maury grade s***.

Well, according to "The Last" Naruto is supposed to think that Hinata loved him like Ramen ... something to eat ... because he is not supposed to know what "romantic love" is. 


Such a cowardly excuse like that is why I'm unable to accept NH. The Last wrecked Naruto's character and did a great job turning him into an a-hole.


Not only did it make him out to be clueless and disconnected with his own feelingswhen in fact he knew what he wanted right from the start, he also saw Sakura as a trophy to be won because of his rivalry with Sasuke (even though Sasuke was never romantically interested in her to begin with).


How they managed to twist Naruto's genuine interest in Sakura into something so shallow and cheap still baffles me, especially since it was shown time and time again that had he'd seriously loved and wanted her from the get-go.
