Sakura and Ino looks so young here - younger than they did at the end of the manga. And seriously, Naruto's face looks like the original illustration got wiped off his face and was replaced by a doodle off a napkin. It's incongruent with the surrounding illustration of his body.
Yes, I was surprised to see Sakura out there. Strange choice since they supposedly hate her so much. Why not Hinata? (I suppose Sakura pic is meant to show her thinking about/pining for Sasuke.)
I have a secret theory that we might see more of Sakura in the future, as her story is so unfulfilled. She doesn't have love, she doesn't live with her 'husband' - Sakura is now in the sympathetic, long-suffering role that Hinata was always cast in.
Whereas Hinata is patently boring now that the whole drive of her story was finished (capture Naruto and have his babies), Sakura still can generate some interest.
So I have a secret theory that we are going to continue to see Sakura in the stories. Either pulled out or focused on for the dual purpose of stoking SS and implying NS to the other half of the fandom that got shafted by the ending. Whereas Hinata is now free to fade into the background, Sakura still has interest, from SS and NS fans.
I like and loved to read it
Can you explain/write it here or if you can't send me a PM??
