Even though I can not get through anything by Tolkien I do respect his work for these kinds of reasons. You can tell the care he put into his craft which, honestly, sometimes I wish Moorcock put that same level into his works at times.
And as for the VAs, once again it's always going to be a matter of professionalism. Unless there's a lot of backlash to the ending, like Gundam SEED Destiny (with Shinn's VA) or Gundam IBO (McGillis) levels, it's frowned upon in the industry to talk smack about the production as it will be seen as disrespectful to everyone else who worked on it. Until the franchise is dead and buried, best we can hope for is off-the-cuff comments.
Sadly a lot of writers don't put all that much work into the world they are building; however, the one thing we Tolkien fans have is our strength; you look at just how many of us are fighting this crappy Ring of Power, the woke kitten that Amazon is doing.
Time and again, they keep trying to say they are changing Tolkien and his world to reflect on the world we live in and not his world. It's not just that; it'ss all the lies they keep telling.
I agree with you on this just look at Naruto, that's now dying slowly, and when it is dead, we know Hinata fans will blame us. Well, mainly SP, they will want to blame someone as that is the go-to now is go and blame the fans, and I wouldn't put it past them.
Tolkien also had so much more world building even with doing a massive series like The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. And he stuck to his guns, something Kishimoto couldn't do since I still say his dad's death and his own exhaustion led him to give up,
The funny thing is, that Tolkien did all of this in his free time. He wasn't even a writer full time, but you're right, he did stick to his guns, while he didn't believe anyone was born evil, he knew when someone went down a dark path that there was no coming back from. I do think he would have hated Naruto, he would feel that Kishi was pushing the friendship of Naruto and Sasuke too hard without showing us why they are friends.
Tolkien would have asked why Naruto, Kakashi, and Sakura care so much for Sasuke, when it was never shown they were friends, and how much Kishi tried to make us feel sorry for the Uchiha clan. I see him saying. "It was their own decisions that have led them down their own doom."
at least the tolkein fans stand together when someone messes with tolkein shame the naruto fans or other fandoms can't do that
The Naruto fandom, well the Hinata fandom only ever wanted Hinata to be happy, and sadly SP went with them. Sadly we do need to keep fighting with what the Woke are doing to the world Tolkien created.
