Well that's good that you did. I however threw the dvd that I had of it out and any other Naruto related merchandise because chapter 700 and all post chapter 700 content made everything that that I loved about the series turn into a nuclear meltdown. Sakura bashers turned out to be right about her just using Naruto to get her "kinky bastard boyfriend" back and "Naruto's love" for Sakura through out the series ended up being worth as much as you can throw a 5 tonnes stone ball. Not to mention in the very chapter that ends the manga that Naruto's era shows that
Naruto Nardo is a "hypocrite" of a father and complete failiure as "ninja jesus" so what was the point of anything anymore?
We all hated the pairings and exploded at the couples conclusion because it definitely wasn't the writing we were staying for anymore. The story just became a plague of hypocrisy and lies that I admit that I would have dropped Naruto itself a long time ago if it wasn't for just wanting to see if Naruto gets together with his love. And no matter what Anti NaruSaku debaters say, Naruto and Sakura's relationship is NOT platonic, because they both did things in the manga and other source materials that go beyond friendship, And I would would LOVE to see anyone in an actual real life relationship or has fundamental understanding of fictional romance tell ME WITH A STRAIGHT FACE that that is how only friends behave around one another. Naruto made a promise of to Sakura to so emotionally draining and detrimental to his well being that when Sakura finds out, she is devastated and and does a completely irrational, self harming move to try kill Sasuke herself.
And anyone that wants to get behind the whole Sakura's confession is "false and a lie" argument, I again need to again bring up this counter argument, "what is the point of Sakura even confessing to Naruto then?" She had nothing to gain from it. And on that note I WOULD REALLY like to meet a person in real life, or any other fictional character that would FAKE their love for someone else if there was no benefit or favor in return for them unless they are masterfully acting. But I never knew Sakura to ever FAKE what she feels unless it is impressing and being a fan girl to Sasuke. Plus I would think that if she only felt like Naruto was only a friend she would just apologize and tell him that he doesn't have to worry about that "silly promise" anymore. She wouldn't even bother confessing to him. Wouldn't anyone here write it that way if THAT WAS THE INTENT?" Exactly.
So my point is, Ultimately, Naruto and Sakura relationship was a special and realistic type of romance and YES it was a romantic relationship. Anyone that thinks otherwise is delusional and in Denial. We wanted to see that relationship blossom and bloom into a wonderfully sweet and funny and the same time type of marriage but we didn't even get that. So "F#&%" all of this and everything that comes after it I say. I've wasted enough time and money on this mound of garbage.
