Sakura was created with Sasuke. Karin was added against Kishi's will by the newest editor. He never wanted Taka to happen.

You're blind to not see why Sakura won and why he insulted Karin's feelings as fangirl, obsessive and lustful.

That was the point? Karin was just comic relief, like Lee's feelings for Sakura. Both were hopeless suitors. Sasuke's fate was to stay with Team 7 as overchachiving arc. Hooking up with the chick who represented a dark and edgy fate makes no sense at all.

Sakura was always going to end up with him because she's the only girl in Team 7.

A big problem was that he talked about a fangirly looking crush over looks like it was true love. Sasuke showing even the slightest bit of affection for her instead of just constantly calling her annoying and trying to kill her would have went a long way in portraying that she didn't just like him for his looks.

This is why I keep saying Sasuke should have had actual DARKNESS manifest from him during the final battle and once he finally gets his ass fully kicked it fades away or some shit and he becomes an alright guy. It would have been a whole new level of retarded, but it would have actually made sense and made DARKNESS something other than just shitty overblown angst.

It's the other way around. NaruHina and Hinata were the original ideas for the story and SasuSaku was it's partnet for some reason. NaruSaku was paired with SasuKarin for again some reason I don't understand like in this teaser.

And Kishi's original idea for Naruto was a magic school a la Harry Potter but his editor suggested ninjas. It's useless to speculate of what could be. The thing is that Sasusaku was huge, way bigger than Narusaku while even Nejihina was bigger than Naruhina.

Kishi original idea was a cooking manga, what the hell are you talking about?

True.

Kishi retcons backstories a lot. Naruto and Sasuke's brotherhood didn't even make sense until Kishi pulled some childhood flashbacks out of his ass for the first Vally of the End fight.
>>
>>119221280
No he never showed any romantic feelings (attraction) for Sakura ever.

>>119221551

The thing is, it could have worked very easily.

Naruto was written as a kid ostracized by his entire community and he never knew why and he's finally put into a situation where he can have friends, and even though he and Sasuke didn't see eye to eye there was plenty of potential for a real friendship, especially since Sasuke didn't have much tolerance for Sakura's shitty attitude towards him.

Instead Sasuke minds his own business for half the Chunin exam arc, is ABSENT for most of Tsunade, and then suddenly we're supposed to bring him back and think Naruto is doing anything more than what he was obligated to do.

I know Minato said they couldn't give him his name because the Stone Niggers would kill him in revenge but what the fuck was to stop those child kidnappers of the Cloud from taking a kid who has the same face as Kushina and is obviously an Uzumaki.

Everyone knows this.
Seriously, he didnt even plan for Naruto to last longer than the Sasuke fight at the Valley of the End.

Seriously.
Read the fucking series, there's way too many contradictions and weird long term events that contradict stuff that should have taken place earlier in the series. Like Sage Mode, Senjutsu actually being a thing, ect.

The writer made shit up on the fly.
>>
>>119223838
See that would have been acceptable by Shonen standards if Kishimoto wasn't determined on Naruto being the only one who can save Sasuke.
>>
>>119218805
Specifically Sasuke/Sakura? Nothing really comes to mind. If you're talking the franchise in general I would say there were some decent romances in there, barring screen time.

That said, we never really see the romance. They end up together but we haven't seen the gap after he leaves and comes back. There might be a story in there like with Hinata.
>>
>>119224060

Naruto's childhood is one massive plot hole. Not only is his lineage completely unknown despite it being so obvious, but there are multiple people who know about his parentage yet did nothing during his lonely childhood. Especially jarring for Jiraiya, who was his goddamn godfather. People give Hinata a hard time for not helping Naruto in his childhood, yet Jiraiya, Kakashi, and fucking Hiruzen are much worse in that regard.

Best not to think about it.
>>
>>119224207
Yeah I know that. I figure that out when I was 12 and read the last chapter of Part 1 with Sasori stating that Orochimaru left Akatsuki 7 years ago.

That makes no fucking sense since Itachi didn't join until 5 years before the timeskip.
>>
>>119224241
Kishimoto's insistence on making Naruto's life about saving Sasuke rather than being Hokage ruined the series.

I still believe that Sasuke ruined the series.
You cant have two main characters like that where they have their own thing going on you either have multiple main characters that take turns, or the main characters are buddy cop style shit, where they're always together.

He gets a pass because he was trying to keep the village, and Naruto to some extent, safe from Orochimaru and the Akatsuki. Kakashi and the Third however are full blown assholes.

Hiruzen was a shitty Hokage

He didn't know about it until he was about to go to his very last mission, I suppose? Otherwise, why would he say this?

I think it's one of two things-

Either A: In japanese culture, it's totally fucking cool for kids to grow up without parents and lead lonely , sad lives.

Or B, the writer is complete shit.

I think it's A AND B, since apparently, Hiruzen, Tsunade, Kakashi, Jiraiya,- ALL THESE PEOPLE left a FUCKING CHILD grow up -alone- for 12 years of his life.

You get that, right?
That, doesnt even MAKE SENSE.
Is there no orphanage in Konoha?
Kids dont just fucking get sent to a home and like "Yo, here it is, son, your new crib.Aight, peace."

Think about it, for ONE second. The Leader of the Village, decided that the Village's WMD and son of the previous Leader, should be ostracized and never assured for his care. He never assigned a guard, he never even had anyone care for him.

>>119224409
Er, nope, there's a flashback where Kushina and the 4th TELL him that they're naming their kid after a character in their book.

So, no.
He knew.
And did nothing.
He didnt even spend a minute part of his life caring for him, or using his wealth as a wealthy shinobi to hire a nursemaid.Nah, he'd rather spend it on whores and crap.(He IS wealthy, btw, as an accomplished writer).

I genuinely believe the writer just....put shit together as he went along, and didnt think about how all this is horrible.

Or are japanese just horrible people with no love for family and friends?

I'm the one who keeps posting that super fucking long comic because I thought it's all about Naruto trying to support Hinata in front of her worrying teammates (I can't read japanese) and I thought that final two panels is Sakura saying "Really, it's because you're dense!" (I thought it was 'nibuin') in the sense that Naruto didn't yet realize how much he cared about Hinata.

I'm sorry for putting you through that much pain for nothing.

>>119224409
It's so funny Tsunade remembers her but acted like Naruto was a nobody when they first met.

Same goes for Orochimaru who knew both of Naruto's parents as well but treated him like he could never be as good as them despite Sasuke at 12 was way weaker than Itachi at 12.
Christ this shit pisses me off.
Especially the fact that Danzo wasn't invented until part 2.

Sasuke already got the curse seal during the chunin arc, he was already branded as a possible body for orochimaru

but you are pretty much right, if the third just fucking killed him, sassgay might have turned out somewhat normal, stayed with the team, and combated against pain with Naruto and Co.
>>
>>119224496
He realized he couldnt win, so he thought "best thing I could do is stop you from casting spells", but apparently, that angle got completely dropped, since Orochimaru could totally do spells and shit, even though he shouldnt.
>>
>>119224409
I can give Kishi a lot of credit because he wrote a 700 chapter series knowing exactly where he was going with it for at least the latter 500 chapters, if not the whole thing. And he stuck to it.

But it's incredibly obvious some character relations were thought up during the creation of the series and add some minor issues.
>>
>>119224555
>I genuinely believe the writer just....put shit together as he went along, and didnt think about how all this is horrible.

He did. Of course he did.

Hell the biggest dilemma he had approaching chapter 700 was how the fuck he was going to write a way for Naruto and pals to even touch Madara Uchiha.

And then he invented Kaguya and made Zetsu a betrayer because that totally makes sense.

Nope.This is the same man, who left to wander the world, and didnt ever come back during his godson's whole childhood. Also, he never even used a fucking fraction of his MASSIVE wealth to hire even a nursemaid, or a caretaker to ensure his GODSON was living alright.

He left him, aware of his existence, but not at all interested caring for him- even though he totally took care of three strangers before all that...

This is the same man, whose godson has to repeatedly BEG him to improve his ability to survive in his profession that feeds him and keeps him alive, but continously ditches him until he gets tired of driving him away.

Only then, does he bother teaching him...once.

I'm sure you started out watching masterpieces when you up and decided to take on anime as an interest.

He believed Nagato and the others to have died during the civil war.
His star pupil and his wife ended up dead too, who knows what happened to the other two, most likely also dead considering how many died in the 3rd ninja war.

>>119224901
Again, think about what I just told you.

Let's say I described that there's this:

Very, Wealthy, Powerful Ninja.
Whose student and friend dies, and his child, who is the Powerful Ninja's official godson- is left completely alone. So, instead of taking care of him, he leaves him completely alone as a baby, and does nothing to take care of him. Spends not a single cent for his care, and doesnt check on him once. Also, this same guy doesnt return for a good decade to even check if he's alive. And yet, this is the same guy, who also took care of three strangers on a whim for three years.

This same person later on never tells the kid anything about him, his family, or anything, treats him like a complete stranger, and tries to ditch him at many times when the kid BEGS him to teach him.

He then teaches him ONE thing, then dissapears for a long time, and doesnt even attend the tournament his godson was training for.

Great human being, eh?
>>
>>119224843
>caretaker to ensure his GODSON was living alright
In the shinobi world, adversity and challenge to survive makes you a stronger ninja. Naruto's painful lonely childhood made him strong enough to survive the challenges ahead.

I mean, obviously that's a copout, he simply didn't plan out the characters ahead of time far enough. But it's a decent excuse.

Movie Naruto is pretty romantic, though.

Honestly, there should just be a spin off manga about Hinata and Naruto doing lovey-dovey things, annoying everyone with their cuteness and honeymoon moments.

Very little. After Naruto sees all the memories of Hinata in the genjutsu lake, he is much more self-conscious around her, but it doesn't stop him from acting pretty smooth.

He makes her laugh, he gets spider web out of her hair, he has her drink water from his hands, then he confesses to her.
>>
>>119220556

I agree with you with Suigetsu.
>>
>>119225476
Naruto being the badguy?

That'd be kinda cool.

How'd I write it...

An old, tired Naruto sees that the world he helped create just broke down, and that the peace he made was a fiction- a temporary peace created by a fear of Madara's power.

But time has passed. People dont remember Madara. Peace has ended. And with the rise of populations, so has nationalism in the Great Countries.And now ninja, those who endure, dont remember the meaning of their name.Elitism runs rampant, and now many ninja treat those without power like cattle.

An old man now dons an old, broken mask, to break the world he helped create.

Nah, nobody would read it.

>>119221145

>>119218805
It wasn't a romance or love story.

>>
>>119225809
Maybe pre-Part I Naruto can become a villain, but post Part II it's just impossible. He's far too cheerful, far too powerful, far too protected by friends who shared his ideals to ever lose his way.

By the time he became Hokage at worst he becomes someone who does gray things.

Probably the only way to turn Naruto evil is to make him believe literally everyone turned away from him. Not just Hinata, Sasuke or Sakura, not just Kakashi or Iruka, not just Kurama and all the other Bijuu, not just the very Sage of Six Paths, but also the ramen guy.

Only then will he contemplate evil.

Naruto saved him from darkness but Sakura gave him an anchor to the village Naruto couldn't provide, that's why he taps her forehead and promises to return.

He saw Sakura as someone he has to protect in Part 1, he was really downcast Naruto was the one to do it.

It's mostly Kishi sexism speaking.

I keep hearing people say that, but Sakura is probably one of the more realistic characters in the series. She's flawed, but not flawed in a made up way.
>>
>>119225623
Essentially. I could see Naruto and Hinata but only because I knew Naruto and Sakura didn't have a chance in hell after the fake confession.
I expected Sasuke to end up alone. Kiba and cat girl, Ino and Sai, and Chouji and Karui was complete fucking lulz.

It caught me off guard. Kishimoto had basically admitted that Shikamaru is his Gary Stu crush and had said he didn't want to write romance for him. I assumed that meant that Shikamaru would end up alone, so Kishimoto could keep him "pure".

I'm glad he got them together, of course.
>>
>>119226078

I think there was a serious lack of screentime on Temari's part since Shikamaru is probably the most prominent of the 12 outside of team 7.

I think Kishi just took it for granted that we knew they'd end up fucking by part II and just dropped it.
>>
>>119226095

Not yet, I watched it when I went to Tokyo. NH is my OTP, but I think Sakura came out as the best bro, her relationship with Naruto is pretty solid big sister/little brother. Sasuke couldn't even be this for Naruto.

>>
>>119226338
There is actually no Madara. Just Danzo.

Except there's no Danzo either. He was a twin of the Third.

The Third turns out to not exist as a 'man' either, as it was an illusion on the entire Konoha.

Created by the Fourth.

Who's mind-controllled by Kurama.

Who is actually literally Naruto, but he manages to create an 'alternate' personality that becomes Naruto.

Jiraiya knew this, but he didn't tell him as he's planning to fuse the two personalities using a specific sealing method.

Sakura would win.
>>
>>119226471
Would Sakura be more tolerable at least?

That's because Gaara becomes Naruto megabro after his arc.

The argument I've seen is that Gaara is Naruto, just more broken. The curative properties of Hinata's love would fit Gaara well. She can also teach him love and all that stuff.

It's done adequately in the sense that if you follow the series closely enough you'll see a thread of development.

It's nowhere near good enough to be called 'done well'. There aren't enough development from Naruto's side, there are no trials testing Hinata's feelings, Hinata herself is sidelined completely and most importantly it's not implied to be mutual until the very Last.

On the whole, I'm satisfied with NH, but that's mostly because of the movie swooping in to fix things.

Even without the movie, we'd have a confirmed marriage with children, which is more than we get from most battle shounen that introduce romance subplots. Most of them end like Eyeshield 21 or Beelzebub, with it being left ambiguous.

Two things. One, the only person Naruto freaks out more over than Sasuke is Hinata.

Two, its a SHONEN. None of those things matter in a shonen if the plot isn't about them.

The Last implies Naruto already loved her but was so out if it he didn't know what that feeling was.

Romance wasn't the plot. It did well for that fact.

>Kid Naruto asks why his forearm feels wet

>>119227380
Because shonen is written for and by 12 year old boys.

>>119227221
What's a shonen couple you're satisfied with? Genuine question.
>>
>>119227382
You said it yourself: for a reason. The epilogue wasn't meant for you to go

>aww, how romantic!

The epilogue was meant for you to see a glimpse of the characters' lives in the future. Of course they'd get married and have children. That's what all human beings do.

But that doesn't mean you can't feel happy that the couple you wanted to see together was shown to be together in the future. I wish more series like this had timeskip marriages. If they're not going to give us the confession and wedding on screen, it's the next best thing.

>If they're not going to give us the confession and wedding on screen, it's the next best thing.
Naruto has the babies ever after epilogue plus a whole movie dedicated to the confession and the marriage.

How many other series had done that? I can't name one, but I've never paid much attention to anime movies. Hadn't even watched any Kenshin movies although I loved Rurouni to bits.
>>
>>119227441
Not any that I can think of off the top of my head. I will say, regardless of genre or intended audience, the couples I am satisfied with are those that have plentiful screen time together. Time to really get to know each other, and for me as the reader to get to know them not as individuals but as a couple.

People fingering themselves over this shit is pathetic but hey, don't let anything I have to say get in the way of your enjoyment.

>>119227613
Sounds like you're asking too much. You risk series collapse when you do that.

Fair enough. Romance of that standard is incredibly rare in shonen, even if both boy and girl are main characters.

>>119227712
Can NaruHina be like the Addams family?
>>
>>119218858
Nice maymay you have there, but stahp, that romance is way better and expanded upon, than this shit.

Buso Renkin did it really well. Initially, Bleach did it too between Ichigo and Rukia though the two weren't romantically interested in each other, there was definitely a camaraderie.

SCREEN TIME, the key words and NH was starved of it. The movie's an attempt to salvage that but the effort just comes off as desperate at this point.

Heathy, weird, comfortable about sex without being obnoxious? Yes.

Quality > Quantity

Romance needs development, regardless of how much or little interaction it takes to show it.

And very little was really needed. Nardo did good. Lay groundwork, then resolve in a spin off. Keeps the plot going.

But screen time needs both: just like in real life romances, you need substantial quality time. Both quality and quantity.

But for a show that it isn't really about the romance that's going to bog down the pacing of the action by a lot. Do you really think Naruto needed more interruptions?

Romance was not the point. Though I agree, Hinata makes a better heroine anyway.

They didn't 'rush' it. They SKIPPED it. There is a difference.

This is a fucking horrible idea. The whole point of the team he had is that it made him the undeniable underdog amongst his teammates.

Implying bro Sasuke wasn't carrying team 7 till the time he left, while Naruto was to focused on trying to steal sauce's waifu to realize his idiocy is what was stopping team 7 from functioning right.
