/a/ now that The Last has been released it made me start thinking why is it so rare for the guy to get the best girl in the end? I mean either the girl or the MC dies or has some weird open ending. There arent a lot of example where we get an Happy ending in Anime.
constant threads made me want to rewatch her arcs.
anime staff had good taste.
man this shit is so surreal
i mean to think after 15 years who would have though naruto would end like this?
>being a buttblasted Kirinofag
The Last: Naruto the Movie is now playing in Japan and fans in the Land of the Rising Sun are enjoying the movie to its fullest! According to the website for Japanese newspaper Nikkan Sports via TOHO (the movie’s distributor), Naruto’s latest big screen adventure earned an estimated 1.47 billion yen by 3 PM on opening day. In US currency, that’s over 12 million dollars!
To put it into a different perspective, it took Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie a few weeks to surpass the 1 billion mark and that is the highest grossing Naruto movie ever! In fact, in its entire 2012 theatrical run, Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie grossed a total of 1.48 billion yen.
>b-but its going to flop! people are returning their tickets!
Ultimate Devastation of NScucks hopes and dreams
>why is it so rare for the guy to get the best girl in the end? I mean either the girl or the MC dies or has some weird open ending.
Well I think that has something to do with Japan having this whole "journey not destination" thing when it comes to romance. There's also generic conveniences of the past to consider like specific archetypes winning in more than one occasion so it's just easier to copy that.
I liked Hinata when she had short hair. She was shit after the time-skip.
Naruto should had got Sakura.
Ok, fuck Sakura. I like Hinata again.
But I still can't forgive Kishimoto because of Anko.
>Implying Kirino is best girl in any fucking universe
he just looks like he's puffing himself up- looking smart
Oh but on that note, even in shounen there are always notable exceptions. Pic related
A culture that doesnt value romance will end up creating a culture of eternal children. Japan has a similar problem as many western nations but in a more extreme manner. Romance has been relagated to the Realm of woman when before Romance was intertwined with Adventure. At least Naruto showed a bit of Romance for a change.
same, I never watched the naruto fillers but I went back and the Onbu episode is now one of my faves.
Hinata is apparently freaked out by small furry sloth like creatures. But she got excited when she heard Naruto had a "baby" with him.
>Naruto’s latest big screen adventure earned an estimated 1.47 billion yen by 3 PM on opening day.
>Kishi's and SP's face when
It pisses me off that kishi's dickhead of an editor sidelined hinata in favor of sasuke and sakure when not only would she have been best girl, she'd sell tons, too.
If editors don't even have the justification of boosting sales when they fuck up someone's manga, why need them at all?
>another grandkid for Master Eugenicist
i dont see anything wrong with this
But why did Naruto cut his hair?
It makes him look like an asshole.
I need to compile the best of the recent butthurt from narusaku fags. Anyone willing to contribute?
Also, we can't have a "best girl winning" thread without this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8xwNnKDUg8
The problem I find is that authors are set from the beginning on who the guy will end up with and they'll refuse to change those plans. So when a separate girl ends up being much more likable and suitable for the guy, they'll be forced to lose.
Authors need to learn it's okay for plans to change over time.
>2014 this movie
>2015 the next movie
>2015/16 Baruto Manga that runs for 20 years
>After that more movies and another generation
Its shit and goes for decades.
Naruto is the Agarest of anime with the tick that it goes for that long in real life..
I doubt it would have earned anywhere near as much if it had remained a cooking manga though. But you're right about Kishi just letting them make decisions for him
Kishi interview, he might have been fucking with us though and it seems it was planned for bolt to have the byakugan. I expect him to be retconned to have it mainly because it seems Salada has the hots for him.
What the fuck? Why is he so mad about this ending? I thought it was pretty fitting for a shounen manga. Shounen manga has often this sort of cliché endings and Sakura has been in love with Sasuke for a long time. I mean come on, what's so wrong with this ending?
WHO WAS NARUTO HOLDING HANDS WITH IN THE SECRET POSTER, I WANT TO KNOW.
17th-18th at earliest depending on the flips
My heart can't take it
That Neji picture will always hurt me to see.
He died for the keikaku, he died a hero.
Dem chink uniforms on lee and Gai.
While I think the concept of the movie is cute, it's a bit of a major storytelling fuckup on Kishimoto's part that he needed the movie in the first place for a satisfying conclusion.
I also think that Hinata should have been more involved with the story on some level. It's nice that the underdog won her man, but a bit more prominence would have gone a long way. In the end, all she ever accomplished was "motivating her man one time" during the main story. Aside from the she was a sideline character whose crush was used as a running gag through out the manga.
>it's a bit of a major storytelling fuckup on Kishimoto's part that he needed the movie in the first place for a satisfying conclusion.
I agree but the man did say he can't write romance/is embarrassed by it
>motivating her man one time" during the main story
Hey, it was 3 times
Kiba or Lee should have been best man. I bet they would have arranged the best bachelor party.
>tfw she wants to roleplay with the torn wedding dress
I'm risking sounding like fag here, but WHERE THE FUCK IS SASUKE? Naruto spent 15 FUCKING YEARS trying to get his sorry ass back and he doesn't even show up at his wedding?
Being a fucking prick to the very end, huh?
It's not as pure vanilla as NH or obvious like ShikaTema but we can agree Sai did pretty well for himself right?
> it's a bit of a major storytelling fuckup on Kishimoto's part that he needed the movie in the first place for a satisfying conclusion
I don't think Kishimoto wanted to touch the subject himself. I guess he was fine with letting others doing it while he had control over contents but had no desire to develop any actual romance in his manga.
Lee, maybe, but Iruka's got it.
Outside of Naruto's cell, (Sai, Sakura, Sasuke) Shikamaru was probably one of Naruto's best friends, though Shikamaru favored Chouji himself.
Kiba is good friends with Naruto but kind of shit in comparison.
>Hinata putting Naruto's head between her huge breasts
>Naruto coming prematurely inside her because she's too good, but she tells him it's okay and helps him get better
TRULY THE BEST COUPLE
Fixed for proper terminology.
There was a time before the timeskip when I thought Hanabi would be in some way relevant later on. A catalyst to show in a later arc how Hinata reconciles with her family to further her character arc after the time skip. Thanks for nothing, Kishimoto.
This movie will kill me.
Can't wait to get my copy later next year.
at the very least he was the one to put the scarf in
In retrospect we should have known Hinata was going to win from as far back as this scene. One of my favorites.
He does the same oath of blood with hers that he did with his during Zabuza
I always considered him asian myself.
Japs can't self insert into the MC if he gets a girl and they cannot.
Its really hard to get a girlfriend in Japan eespecially if youre out of school and not rich
So anime where the MC does get the girl is rare in the stream of titillating tturbo fan service shit which can't resolve itself without dying.
As to the question, I guess Kaze no Stigma and Monogatari are examples.
Does Araragi even ponder leaving Hitagi for some other girl except for his siscon antics from the one volume that was originally intended to be the authorauthor's private fapping material?
I guess it did give Naruto a bit of extra motivation to beat Neji.
That was the one time I was referring to.
I'd say Neji's death by itself was more than enough motivation.
Well, so she motivated him twice by getting beaten up. I still think she deserved a better track record.
there is a translated version somewhere. they are going out to eat, he sees how expensive everything is, she x-rays his wallet and suggests that they go to ichiraku because he likes it.
He is visibly asian in the earlier chapters. Then it gets kinda lost after the timeskip.
I mean, he was supposed to look like a fox. You don't get more slant eyed than that.
This. Jesus christ this series is shit and I am amazed at how you people eat it up. Literally no character development whatsoever and then, suddenly, MARRIAGE.
"Here's this movie to make-up for all the shit I didn't do while writing the manga", but together at the last minute.
Aside from NH, sasuke showed pretty mucho zero to minimal interest in sakura
and now suddenly they have a kid? That doesn't bother anyone? I'd be upset if I were a naruto fan.
I wish we could've gotten more of Hinata being completely unimpressed by Sasuke.
Hiashi would NOT give condoms. Unless he poked holes in them.
You know I'm trying my best to have a little sympathy for the Sauce. Sure he was a total fag for all his MUH DARKNESS bullshit he put everyone through but in the end Naruto finally smacked the stupid out of him and chose to remain one armed as a reminder.
EVEN THEN he gets off scot-free but its not like he'd be welcomed back with open arms. Really he only had one person ready to welcome him home which is Sakura. The only girl that put up with all his FANTASTIC bullshit. Call it patience or obsession but after you've been that much of a cunt to the world its amazing he had anyone wanting the Uchiha D at that point.
Basically, after all his shit does the Sauce deserve life as comfy as the one Naruto got?
I hope we get a Springtime of Youth comic centered around The Last and chapter 700, focused on Lee, Tenten, and Guy. I would like to see what happens to them.
I wonder how Lee is going to handle Sakura getting knocked up with Sasuke.
throughout the whole series, he never gave a shit about romance
it was well documented
Romance didn't mean shit in Naruto. It was more teammates and shit.
We knew Hinata wanted Naruto and if she wasn't shy and Naruto wasn't dense they'd be fucking. Thats what happened.
>Question : Did Kishi forgot to give Byakugan no the kids ?
>Answer from takL : sort of yes. according to the article he said ” i was intending to (give them byakugan) and forgot. when they have the third child (the child will have byakugan)…but in that case things might get complicated in many ways”
>Third kid for Naruto & Hinata in the coming !
>Hiashi face when
She was probably thirdwheeling Ino and Sai for years until Sasuke came back and put a baby in her. I can imagine Ino and Sai trying to get rid of Sakura so they can fuck but Sakura's too dense to take the hint.
Neji will never baby sit. Thanks coolest guy.
>Naruto has three kids when Hiashi only had 2
Naruto, you have surpassed me.
My God Bolt is nothing. The true descendant of Asura will be this child.
>with the byakugan
As far as I'm aware, Taiora, Zutara, and Harmony never had an entire movie, TV specials, and merchandising line devoted to shitting on everything they thought was true.
>It was more teammates and shit.
That reminds me of the time ShikaInoChou went after Asuma's killer. Instead of killing him with teamwork, Shikamaru ultimately soloed him after telling his teammates to step the fuck back.
Well she did put up with an inhuman amount of his crap so she kind of deserved it? I mean, who else would she end up with? Lee?
He deserves better. Kind of a consolation prize scenario.
>You were a useless whiny bitch so here, have a post MUH DARKNESS edgefag.
>Edgefag, you were absolute irredeemable and no one who knows you would want your shit genes so here, have a pink bitch.
They took 4 pages of Hinata vs. Pain and turned it into one of the greatest episodes of all time. You can bet your ass they're going to give this date sakuga animation.
For me, they only really needed to add 2 major scenes to Hinata's story and 1 minor one to salvage it. Would it be nice if she was involved in the whole eyehax bullshit and was there with Kaguya? I guess but Kaguya was stupid anyway so let's not even go there.
The minor one is to make that scene in the anime canon where she trains the Twin Lions with Neji in between the start of part2 and Pain. The 2 major ones is to have the bug search arc where she learns defensive 64 trigrams canon and to have her get up after tripping and reach Naruto to dual team heal him with Sakura using chakra points and shit.
Optional small stuff: have her be within eyesight of Naruto when the IT happens and Naruto calls out to her in desperation (Having him react mentally like a newtype to Hinata calling his name is nice and all but it's not really clear) and in the funeral scene, have him hold her hand instead of just standing by her side.
That way, her story goes like this:
1. She keeps looking at Naruto and letting Naruto copy her test (introduces her as a sort of weird girl with an interest in the guy)
2. Chuunin exam where she gives him the salve (showing more interest)
3. Neji fight where Naruto realizes she's been looking at him + has the same ninja code + impressed by her strength + swears on her blood (where Naruto's interest in her starts)
4. Proud failure speech (where she reveals her reasons for loving him while supporting him)
5. Search team (for some time together and Hinata development)
6. Start of Shippuden where she still holds interest in Naruto
7. Hard training with Neji so that the reveal of the twin lions against Pain holds meaning
8. Pain confession
9. Neji's death and the slap
10. Reaching Naruto before getting ITd
11. The Last where Naruto finally answers the confession
Holy fuck they're fucking like rabbits.
It's okay. Himawari can see spirits. She knows Neji's smiling for her.
>She has no reason to.
Naruto is happy. The bitch in her can't take it.
He had a nerve to end up with girl who liked him when they were children. What a jerk!
>They talked about how impressed they were with Hinata's performance
Icing on the cake.
Considering Naruto's talked to his zombie dad and the ghost of the Sage of Six Paths, I think it probably indicates that Himawari's a really special child.
Just as planned.
That's only if they decide to have the after-fillers take place after the two year time-skip.
It would awesome if they did that but I'm betting on them just doing filler that apparently takes place after the war, where barely development would occur in certain aspects.
>if she was involved in the whole eyehax bullshit and was there with Kaguya? I guess but Kaguya was stupid anyway so let's not even go there.
I disagree, it would have made Kaguya's appearance much more credible if throughout the series they had drawn parallels to her and Hinata.
Maybe Hinanta could have been integral to her revival such as being a "host body". It parallels with the whole Jinchuriki thing, not to mention that everyone for years has drawn Hinata with bunny attributes.
It had potential.
WE GOT YOUR BACK
here, have some comfy instead
I don't get it. Naruto has been chasing Sakura for years the same way Hinata has been for Naruto except being more shy about it. It's been shown the entire series. What makes me laugh at the Narusaku fanboys/girls is that if Naruto got with Sakura it's the same shit as Hinata ending up with Naruto. Need me to explain?
Naruto chases Sakura > Sakura doesn't acknowledge > Sakura likes someone else > Makes a promise to get stronger > Sacrifices self for crush> Gets stronger > Sakura notices strength and development
Hinata chases Naruto > Naruto doesn't acknowledge > Naruto likes someone else > Makes a promise to get stronger >Sacrifices self for crush > Gets stronger > Naruto notices strength and development
Same shit. I think it's because people can relate to Naruto loving their childhood crush, which the fans probably still chase and then Naruto forgets about them and moves on. That's my opinion.
Do you think Hiashi is mad that Hinanta is clan mixing with Naruto, or has he basically given up on her and relies on her little sister? The Hyuga clan always seemed too proud to do this stuff.
That is sweet as fuck
She's amazing. Naruto won so hard.
No, it's the opposite. Naruto didn't understand Sakura before he had a crush on her and so it was just a crush. Hinata understood Naruto, which led to her loving him. Understanding paves the way for love, bolstered by willpower. When Naruto understood Hinata, he loved her too.
They probably fucked every day for weeks after they married
Someone doesn't know about the plan.
mfw we could have had Hinata with cute bunny horns if she and Kaguya had been connected.
Considering the fact that Kishi didnt even plan to include Sasuke and Sakura in the series but rather focus on Hinata I really wonder what Naruto would have been like without the editors forcing him to take their ideas into account.
Would it have been better or worse? Hard to tell. Its really hard to tell if Kishi was retarded from the beginning, his editors fucked it up or he just didnt give a shit anymore after a certain point due to them dictating what he was supposed to write.
You can tell how much Kishimoto failed in writing a coherent and compelling story when everyone just wants to watch this movie for shipping reasons. Nobody cares about the overall plot of this movie, about the villains and all the other shit, they just want to see NaruXHina getting together and kissing. All they want to do with this movie is milking the shit out of something that already ended. Gotta make some money before the franchise loses its full value, that's business my friends!
I have to wonder about Naruto's budget
He repeatedly goes on high stakes mission after the time skip, destroys many of Konoha's enemies and saves the world but he is somehow still poor as shit
>everyone just wants to watch this movie for shipping reasons
>The tagline for the movie is "The Last story is the First Love"
>Literally advertised as a romance movie since the beginning
Are you stupid?
>Jesus christ this series is shit and I am amazed at how you people eat it up
I know. I know it's shit. It's rushed and it doesn't make much sense, but goddammit, NH is just too cute for me to care. I can't fucking help it, how can I not melt at cheesy shit like >>117973994
Bolt won't use the same moves as his father right? It'll be different right? Also well have another person as good with ice as Haku right?
I mean sure, it could have been great if they had foreshadowed Kaguya for a long time but I was only working with what we had. I'd fix the DARKNESS stuff too if I could but I only wanted to add 3 scenes to salvage it so I didn't even want to go to something that complicated.
2 scenes of her improving herself and 1 scene of her reaching Naruto after the Neji death scene. At its core, the story that we got for her had the elements needed but it was just missing a few in-between stuff and a stronger finish (not counting the last). Reaching Naruto instead of tripping and then Naruto holding her hand in the funeral would have accomplished a lot for her story without changing too much.
I actually liked her start and mid-points. The Chuunin exam + proud failure + pain confession + Neji slap were great moments and main heroine material. Kishi's follow through to those things sucked balls though.
WHY THE FUCK IN ALL OF THE FUCKING SERIES NARUTO GETS A CHEESY, SWEET ENDING FULL OF ROMANCE CLICHES WHILE OTHER SERIES'S DOESN'T GET SHIT BUT AN OPEN FUCKING ENDING?
there was a time before the timeskip when I thought a lot of other characters would be relevant later on.
then it all became about the Uchiha and it all went to shit.
as if you'd be saying this if the movie was completely the same except about NaruSaku.

>7th Shippuden Movie
7 children future
Seeing that Naruto had a lonely existence for most of his childhood, he seems like the type of guy who would want a large family. Here's hoping any of his future children inherits clan Uzumaki's red hair.
>yfw the new Uzumaki family end up becoming like the Weasleys--only rich
>does Hinata really have huge boobs?
You tell me.
Remember when people thought that this movie would be about Hinata teaching Naruto the importance of siblings so that he would have a lot of kids.
Well, they got one thing right. He did have a lot kids.
Biggest openings in Japan for comparison (taken from Box Office Mojo). Might be innacurate though.
That would have been indeed a nice way to involve her and give the Hyuuga clan as a whole a bit more relevance, if they were built up as the family line that can unknowingly ideally host Kaguya. Instead they amounted to jack and shit, after being hyped up to be rivals to the Uchiha eyehax early on. Would also have been a way to involve Hanabi in the story, as the 2nd potential host, once the whole revival plan went into motion.
"Three cupfulls of rice" is pretty big to me.

This movie needs a heart attack warning
The movie delivered on the sweetness factor that's for sure.
Because despite being a shit writer(Actually most mangaka are shit even at hooking you in so most are actually worse than Kishi) he still cared enough not to have an open ending.
And he would have gotten Ino, Chouji and Kakashi all killed if it hadn't been for Naruto saving their asses with his new one-hit-kill technique and Kakuzu suddenly turning into a retard.
The Future of SasuSaku
一方、映画でナルトに引導を渡す（？）役割を果たすことになったサクラを演じる中村さんは「ま さか、こんな 失恋気分を味わうとは…」と笑いつつ、ナルトとヒナタだけでなく、サクラとサスケの間に何があ ったのか「先 生、気になります」とその間のエピソードを描いてほしいと岸本さんにおねだり。岸本さんは「確 かにサスケの 方が気になりますよね。いろいろ、考えますね」と頷き、「サクラには幸せになってほしいです。 ツラいことば かり描いてきたので」としみじみと語っていた。。
Basically, it says that at the premiere, Chie-san ( Sakura ) laughingly told Kishi that Sakura gave off the feeling of being broken-hearted when giving Naruto ’the last rites over the deceased’ in the movie (don’t ask me… even the article put a question mark after that part XD) - and that she wanted to know what had happened between her and Sasuke, not just between Naruto and Hinata. The article says that she was literally begging Kishi to write about it. To which Kishimoto apparently nodded and answered with ‘Certainly, people are interested in Sasuke’s side… I’ll be thinking about various things’. Then he said very earnestly that he wanted Sakura to be happy, since he’s only been making her experience painful things until now.

That's a bit of an off translation. It's even better than Tsundere Naruto.

>Hinata: ”Before that…”

He's so in love with her he can't help but accidentally say it.
>All the other ships hate NH now
The NH shirts must piss them off.
>when they have the third child (the child will have byakugan)
Not if. When. He already knows he will write more about them. Enough to give them a 3rd children and make something about it "complicated".
if hinata was more involved, they would have been canon by the pain arc, the only thing nh had against it was lack of screentime
but then kishimoto would have to show them dating and shit, look at the oneshot he can barely show them dating
Nah. The creator of FMA for example, said that her MC and his childhood friend had "many children". At the end of the manga they were shown to have two kids like Naruto and Hinata.
because she just can't take her eyes off of him
>Naruto has been chasing Sakura for years the same way Hinata has been for Naruto
This is incorrect. The distinction between the two is the Naruto liked Sakura for superficially reasons (popularity, beauty, etc), where Hinata liked Naruto for his internal character. The former case is is a "crush", but the latter case is "love". The former case is not a stable romantic situation as is. Once Naruto matures and starts to look at her interior, which is the most important determinant for "love", he can potentially see that he doesn't actually love her in a significant way that "true romantic love" required. Hinata already knew about Naruto 's character, so she woudn't have a potential shift in her attraction to him as Naruto had with Sakura - because she already knows his true self and loves him anyways.
People don't really care about the MC winning his "love" (actually just a crush) because we know it is superficial and that there is no good foundation. Once he matures, he could (and did) easily drop the crush. People wanted Hinata to win because a) people love her personalty and/or looks and/or quirks b) She loved the MC and actually have a firm foundation for that love. Furthermore, she loved him when no one else did. Sakura only started to respect Naruto latter, after he starting becoming strong along with everyone else, but Hinata truely was (one of) his first supporter.
