news from the Kishi interview today:
pink's parents were never introduced because of her low popularity
considered using best girl as new main heroine, ultimately sticked to pink despite pink being unpopular
Neji's death was for best girl winning
had a hard time to write pink and sauce
Hidan is Kishi's favorite Akatsuki
Oro and other neglected charas will get a closure in the future miniseries

I liked him too. Honestly the Akatsuki in general were a pretty based villainous group. Most of them had distinct but cool personalities and sense of individuality to each of them.

that's an understatement

> After he drew Sakura, there were people saying that they hate her. So he decided to make Hinata the heroine. He made Neji die so he could become the cupid(the interviewer asks if he is even allowed to say this) between the new heroine and Naruto

Was she seriously so disliked? I thought it was just Japan having shit taste again but even Nips hated her? Why the fuck did she have so much screen time all the way til the end then?
>>
>>118288614

so we are going to add Neji fags to the people that will hate Hinata now?

Ohh, boy, more ammo for the anti-NH. A ship so improbable a character had to die for it.

So why didn't Kishi just kill Sakura off? That'd be a perfect excuse to add in a new main heroine.
>>
>>118290196
True Nejifags wouldn't be hating. He's been referenced more post death than he ever was.

You will see butthurt shippers pretend to be offended on Neji's behalf though.
>>
>>118290183
She was locked into being the main female for far too long to shift gears. I would assume he was thinking about that since around Part 2 started but by then the manga was going on for too long
>>
>>118289432
Akatsuki arcs were the only redeeming things about post time skip Naruto.
>>
Wasn't Neji's role from the beginning to connect Naruto/Hinata?

I mean that was his purpose during the chunin exam arc. Everything after that was just him floating around.

>Ohh, boy, more ammo for the anti-NH.

on one hand I wish kishimoto stopped with the interviews because it just gives people like them more material

on the other hand watching how the fandom burns is hilarious
>>
I think it's less that they "hated" her and more like they "liked practically everyone else at her importance level" more than her.

Compared to like Rukia or hell, let's even say Nami, she's pretty damn low in popularity polls
>>
i thought neji dying specifically for the ship was pretty apparent given all that happened afterward.
>>
>>118290383
It gives them more material while at the same time killing them.

I almost feel like he's trolling at this point. The more interviews come out the more I feel like he never intended Sakura to ever be the m ain love interest at a certain point
>>
>>118288614
>best girl
>implying any of them were even good
I wonder what the early meetings with the editor were like. Probably like this:

Ed: "Omedetou! The first arc was excellent. However, the editorial staff is slightly concerned."
K: "Oh? How so?"
Ed: " I'm going to be blunt, we need a serious love interest."
K: "But I want to write a battle manga of hard work and unbreakable bonds between rivals. I don't care about romance or love interests. Sakura is supposed to be a throwback to Bulma, so won't she do?"
Ed: "Um, well, this isn't AT's WSJ anymore. Having Sakura as the sole love interest is problematic."
K: "Honestly, I don't like drawing female characters. Are you sure we can't make her work?"
Ed: "She isn't popular with either teenage or adult male demographics. Why not give that cute, shy background girl more spotlight?"
K: "I guess it can't be helped. I'll try to work her in to the current and upcoming arcs, but I'm not changing themes."

It is kind of funny how Hinata won and yet was still treated as an afterthought.
>>
>>118290422

they know their ship is dead, now the only thing they can do is try to ruin nh for the rest
>>
You could tell he just had Sasuke do a bunch of shit without a real clear arc. He didn't quite know what to do, other than have Naruto redeem him at the end.

And Sakura was only used to Team 7 drama.
>>
>>118290472
eh, I thought Hinata was one of the original conceived characters and that Pink and Edge were additions by Editor-kun?
>>
>>118288614
>had a hard time to write pink and sauce
As in, their relationship? Because Sasuke was Kishi's favorite character for a long time.
>>
>>118290472
Don't forget how editors forced Kishi to add Team Taka aka Team Faggots.
>>
>>118290472
>implying any of them were even good
I legitimately cannot think of any bad Naruto grills other than Sakura and Karin

From what I'm getting from the interview is that Kishi likes Sakura, but doesn't understand why she wasn't as popular as he thought she should have been and even then he had not idea on what to do with her despite liking her.
>>
>>118290373
Not dead last, but pretty far down. She tied with Sai for 12th after Hinata and Iruka, making her popularity to screentime ratio pretty abysmal.
>>
>>118290484
The Team and rival ideas were not bad, it's only kishi's execution, what ruined the Franchise, especially the focus on sauce

>>118290472

Hinata was like the first girl Kishi designed while Sakura was asked to be added in by the editors. If anything you need to rewrite that with Hinata coming in first
>>
>>118290297
Way to boil down an entire character into a ship supporter.

His purpose is another obstacle to counter Naruto's belief that hard work can trump anything. After the Chuunin exam, then he started becoming a NH supporter and exists solely for NH.

Except in Rock Lee SD, in which his role is a boke.

Hinata being created first before Sasuke and Sakura is an unconfirmed rumor. we have no idea which chara was created first, but considering he was sketching Hinata in such a setting (civilian outfit, uzumaki necklace, sun and naruto in the background), we can confirm that Hinata was indeed intended to be Naruto's love interest in the manga

If you recall the notes from the first volume, there wasn't going to be a heroine period, much less Hinata. It was supposed to be just Kakashi and Naruto with Sauce as the rival.

Hinata was designed initially to be a civilian, probably a Chichi-esque love interest that didn't get involved in the main fights.

Which was a very fucking bad idea. That's not how you treat the goddamn protagonist's love interest at all.

Kishi made it clear that he can't write women well. I wouldn't be surprised if he was intending to Dragonball it and just focus on Naruto+Mentor and his villains with Hinata showing up between arcs.

Its not like he was planning on doing romance either way.
>>
>>118291331
Well, he does get embarrassed by romance. Apparently when he was discussing with SP what The Last should be about, he was going to go with a generic shonen movie thing with minor NaruHina but SP insisted on making the movie a full-blown romance.

Not really.

Sasuke and Hinata needed to be gone from the manga to make NS even a possibility, the ship became a joke the moment Hinata got the spotlight again.

Kishimoto said that he tried to make Sakura likeable, this is probably why she got so much screentime when part 2 started.
