Vic is apparently a very devout Christian, in a field of work that majority are far leftist; most who have gone completely insane since Trump won. They probably been waiting years to get rid of him, but could never find any justification for it until now.

Which was a horrible idea, not to mention stupid because I'm not sure if a) trying make Hinata ala Chi-Chi (which doesn't make sense, canonically) or b) the team and executives continued to downgrade Sakura and suddenly upgrade Hinata because of their favortism and bias.

The change is more to dismiss what Hinata was in the movie; a weak woman overwhelm with the mess that her family is, and unable to do anything about because she refuses to confront her husband. So the anime to address this made her into all mighty mom that all fear -yet her family is still a mess because she won't confront or address the issues. It still favoritism but it more she must be perfect no matter what even if we must change a core part of her character instead of she is so awesome.

Initially, the man who chose Sakura before interviewing him said that the pink-haired girls seemed more beautiful to him than the black-haired girls. The person who questioned him thought he might be able to change his mind if he saw him, Sakura and Hinata, and so on. The man (who was asked) believed that he might be able to insult Sakura, but justice always triumphs.

I wish I could give you the link to the videos but the videos language is in Arabic, so no one except me would understand it.

We could still understand their facial expression, we already understand the content to a degree from you other post.

I find that the fans of a series are far more accepting of less human-looking characters, especially females, than random people would be. However this isn't really the case for the Japanese who tend to make a female character look human even if her counterparts are freaks (see Pilaf's group in Dragon Ball) Given that Hinata is one of the only female characters in Naruto that doesn't look totally normal, it's one more reason why NH would not have happened without the Western audience

Other then a few girls with ridiculously large breasts; every woman outside the hyuuga looks normal enough. What makes Hinata appealing to her fans is her personality, or more accurately girls like her because she is just like them (shy but secretly the most beautiful in the land which is why John should be with me and not that slut) or for guys she is their perfect women (obedient rich worships the ground they walk on never question them better then the friend-zoning slut Jane how dare she not realize what a Nice Guy I am.)

when somebody watch sakura and hinata face's, permanently will choose sakura.

but if he saw the body of each girl he will lose his mind and choose hinata.

Link for that video? Anyways by the sound of it the second guy didn't pick Salad because the glasses didn't look good on her, not because the daughter is actually attractive; also probably because he got what the other guy was a wanting him to say by that point. The first guy sounds desperate for random people to consider Hinata and her spawn such beauties that from a glance anyone would acknowledge could defeat anyone in terms of looks.

#970753 Boruto: The NeverEnding Prologue Chapter 31

Posted by Bail o' Lies on 26 January 2019 - 04:26 AM

Summary time: Chapter 31. Monster. They inform us that Nail will be on the next volume cover...Who cares? It will be out 2/4. Well at least we get to see if they'll lose another 30,000 in sales again. 


No "Cover Page" this time. Instead it starts off where the last one finished. Mustard is confronting Naruto, and the kids. They have some back, and forth. You can honestly guess what the dialogue is; even half assed you'd probably be correct. They fight. She has some eye power the absorbs chakra attacks; yet another eye power. They are implants though not kekki genkai. Ok their over-use of the term "Scientific Ninja Tools" for any of their new tech instead of coming up with other phrases makes it hard to take any of the dialogue seriously. Naruto activates his Chakra form. Her transforming wood legs manage to stab Naruto. Bolt tries to get into the fight. She threatens him. Naruto gives this threat back, "Don't lay a single finger on those kids, because you'll be paying for it until you die." Wow, I hope that was just a bad translation. Naruto is defeated. While he is on the ground he says that he included Nail when he was talking about the kids. You should all be touch by this. Be touch as the writer wants you to be. He tries to get some information by trying to getting Mustard to gloat while he is down. However, mustard instead does this:




He was faking it but god this fight tries to make him come off as cool. He just comes off as pathetic. They both go all out. One can tell this by their dragonball aura's that surrounds the both of them. She can call back attacks she absorbed...and that's the end of the chapter. With Bolt being in awe of how great this fight is...Where did I put the booze again?
Oh right. The reason this chapter title is called "monster" is Mustard and Naruto kept calling each-other such.
Next chapter 2/25.
So does anyone think this was worth a month's wait?
Like I said last month when Ike said this year will have more battles; "As for battles; if their one thing that drags this story out more then attempts at character building; its the battles."

Did people really think that ALL the previous holders for One For All after the original holder were quirk-less like All Might and Deku? At least one of those jackasses must have had a quirk before them. Since the power of One for All already had both the power to pass itself on, and accumulate power. It was always possible that other quirks were added into that mix. One could even argue the All Might did in fact have a quirk; Muscle Expansion/Peak Performance. Since, he continues to do that long after he passed on One For All, but that was worthless before he got One For All that Super Charge himself as well as his quirk.

Isn't part of the wall already built? I swear their were some news stories where people were at the border with part of it built a few days back?


Also I could swore I heard a story where someone started a go fund me (or something similar) for the wall after all this started and was able to raise at least a Billion.


Oh turns out next Tuesday will be the second month government workers/contractors wouldn't get paid; once the shut down is over they will get back-pay, of course. However, Pelosi did not plan on being even in country since she and several other democrats were going on a week's trip to Brussels, Egypt, and finally a quick check in on Afghanistan. They had to cancel it because Trump felt it was inappropriate to use United States Air Force Air Craft for an excursion while a government shut down was happening. However, there was nothing stopping them from simply booking a commercial jet to go on the excursion if they wish (it was even stated in the memo.)

If we are talking about Rounin Kenshin. Yes, he was married at one point, but by the point the story started she had been dead for over ten years. The manga is about Kenshin's redemption as well as coming to terms with his past -which does involve both his past as an assassin, and his dead wife-, but also moving on by finding friends, ending his wandering by settling down, and finding happiness by marrying Kaoru.

I just want to point out that the images show Hanabi worshiping her sister but in the third image Hinata actually doesn't reflect that back instead having a very cold/neutral look, and as for the last image from what I understand Toneri looked into her mind after that and saw what was solely on Hinata's mind was thoughts of Naruto.

The anime industry? No. Think more along the lines of politics. Please no one go beyond this an actually get political; If *my* party does X it fine but if the *other party* does it is bad. 


Or Zamasu 



If Hinata does it it is fine, if Sakura does it then it is a sin.

Posted by Bail o' Lies on 14 January 2019 - 03:05 PM

The thing that annoys me most about the Sakura hitting Naruto argument is that other Tsundere type characters are not held to that same standard. Kayko hitting Yusuke? Forgot about that. Kagome's sits? It's funny. Kaoru beating Kenshin with a boken? Luv. Some at least will attack other tusnderes, but for some reason Sakura is put up as the poster child of abusive tsunderes when there have been far worse. 


I recall when all those other mangaka made their own illustrations to "celebrate" the end of Naruto, one had a picture of the Konoha Eleven running up triumphantly...while Naruto and Hinata tripped and fell over into the dirt.


Not only does this support your theory, but it's a perfect metaphor for how Naruto was NEVER the star of his own manga. He got left in the dust by everyone else (though I wouldn't say any of them came out good), and settled for someone at his level rather than getting back up.

Sakura is hated because she is the first Tsundere some kids saw, reminded them of girls that friend-zone them later on, and Hinata was shown early enough people thought she had a shot.


Can you find that image? I don't remember that, and want to see that.


It's more Kishimoto got bored with him, and because he needed to justify why Sasuke was still an antagonist was more interesting to him. Also the anime staff cared more about Hinata then anything else.

#970402 The NEW NaruSaku Debate Thread

Posted by Bail o' Lies on 11 January 2019 - 03:55 PM

Oh my god. I HATE this argument.

If we take away the movie, NH was never supported by anyone or "shipped" by any character, but do you know who shipped NS? Minato, Sai, The frogs, Konohamaru. Ino arguably in the Boruto series.

Look at Road to Ninja too where NS was shipped by everyone in the series save for Sasuke, but he just a womanizer. Ino came up with a plan to push NS together in that one. Or MS I guess in this case. That one was written by Kishimoto too.

From what I recall Kiba, Kurenai, and Shino supported her... then again that entire team is pretty much forgotten about by kishi to the point that when they are brought up it is to acknowledge the fact that they are unimportant. Hinata was only save from that fate by the editors.

Posted by Bail o' Lies on 08 January 2019 - 11:06 PM

Ok this isn't super relevant but I did watch the TFS play dragonball advance adventure part four they talk about Boruto...also since they record this stuff way in advance they mentioned how they thought the samurai would have been more important a day or two before kishi revealed his new manga about cyborg samurai...anyways. Apparently Lani, and Grant watched Boruto separately but they both had the same opinion and stopped watching roughly at the same time. They thought the movie fight was well animated, didn't care about fat filler's little arc, and stop watching by the time the current arc got into the snake sage nonsense. They found some of the anime stories generic, and hoped they aren't canon...technically everything the anime is doing is canon. They don't like the fact the power up the previous generation had to risk their lives to obtain is just being causally given to Bolt's generation with no effort.


I'm bringing this up because it is very rare to find people talking about Boruto, and they genuinely come off as causal fans of Naruto.

Posted by Bail o' Lies on 05 January 2019 - 01:53 PM

I think Megumi Takodoro from Food Wars is a good example of what Hinata SHOULD HAVE BEEN. Yes, Megumi had feelings for Soma, but they were not her defining motivation. She had real friends with the rest of the Polar Star Dormitory, her family was what really drove her, and she actually HAD SKILLS. While she's very much on the low side in terms of victories, she faced off against skilled opponents and came close each time. Even Erina respects and recognizes her skills.


Hinata, on the other hand, doesn't seem to hang out with anyone, her team just drags her along. Despite what SP tries to tell us, she clearly doesn't give a damn about her family. Her skills are average at best, and it's nothing we haven't seen and done better from Neji. And the only reason other people respect her in the series is because the current plot demands it. 

Megumi is honestly pretty standard for a moe girl that gets some focus in a shounen story. A shy nervous girl meets a brazen boy and learns to stand up for herself more often. That's also the story most of the readers probably wanted for Hinata. But that wasn't what kishi was going to do with her, or what SP wanted to do with her.


Like I said Kishi doesn't really have characters that have continuous stories unless they interest him. They tend to be relevant for one arc; then they are done. Hell, he can't even manage it for his main cast. For Hinata, it was be the likable girl that gets beaten up by Neji so people really root for Naruto in his first fight. If anything beyond that it would have been; she marries Neji so he can be adopted into the main branch to become clan head and end the curse seal practice. 


For SP, they apparently quickly fell in love with both her as well as her voice actress Nana Mizuki and decided to make her their perfect waifu that exists solely for Naruto/them.
