>tfw when Kiba and like, everyone else just said they wanted to be Hokage as well a few chapters before COOLEST GUY happened
>Naruto couldn't give less of a shit
>but the guy who murdered his parents and is responsible for all of Naruto's isolation and suffering growing up is the COOLEST GUY because of it
>also started a war with the entire world, killed Neji and countless others, helped Sasuke become more psychopathic and dangerous
He broke the cycle of friendzoning. He had to die and lost half of his body, arguably his genitals too, but he got Rin in the afterlife. He succeeded where Jiraiya and freaking Naruto, the light personified, the son of god, the child of the prophecy, etc, failed
Are you implying the Naruto/Sakura relationship was a friendzoning one? Naruto liked her when she was young because she was pretty, nothing more. He finally got over any little bit of infatuation he still held on to when she fake confessed to him.
The mask. No mask = sucks.
That's where Kishi fucked it up with Tobi. A great character died and instead we got another crappy Uchiha -_-
So much potential got wasted when the mask shattered, nothing of value gained. Instead of rooting for Tobi, every week ended with "when does Obito finally die?". When he was fatally wounded, he didn't die... when he finally died, he came back as a ghost lol. I bet he is still around somewhere in Boruto.
At this point. I feel like itachi is the bad ass character in the series. I mean obito's motivation was his dead childhood friend. Itachi just wanted the ninja villages to come to peace all fucking ready.
He was so close to being the only non-shit Uchiha, but had to fuck it up by letting Sasuke live... and then continuing to beat him up a few times and telling him to brood over his hatred even more.
As much shit as Obito gets, at least he eventually died for his sins. He even got murked so hard, there wasn't enough of him left for the inevitable next megalomaniac to bring back.
Sauce getting off with a "Yeah, sorry..." was easily worse.
Sasuke was definitely worse in most if not all aspects, but Naruto never gave the Sasuke the benefit of being called the COOLEST GUY.
Also unlike Sasuke, Tobi was a cool character when he was introduced.
The Last retcons are just retcons m8.
>He finally got over any little bit of infatuation he still held on to when she fake confessed to him.
Wrong, Naruto didn't care about that because he understood why Sakura was doing it(apparently you didn't). Naruto only cared about she lying to herself in order to try and make him happy in some way, he's more mature than you give him credit for, and certainly more mature than you which is pretty fucking hilarious.
One of the problems I had with THE LAST was that it butchered his character to the point he was like in the beginning of the manga and not the man he grew up to be. He needed to be literally mindfucked and told by Sakura that he loved Hinata in order to man the fuck up, the movie was a fucking mess but that pissed me off the most since Pierrot could've done it so much better than that and instead we got the fucking genjutsu scene.
Hinata deserved better than that as a character being barely relevant in the main story and then her own movie had shit like that in it, fuck Pierrot.
As to your thing about Sakura.
Naruto realized he would never have a chance with Sakura in the hospital scene when she hugged Sasuke, he had some hope left I assume but he just grew out of it over the years, or at least when The Last happened.
Anyways, romance in Naruto is shit, Kishimoto doesn't care about it one-bit and it's not important so I don't care either.
What I hate is that he could have gotten over Sakura and had interest in Hinata WITHOUT retconing his childhood crush on Sakura.
It's like Kishi can't understand the concept of people moving on.
Because originally he was supposed to be just a villain, but then he got changed into being a hero so his earlier actions made no sense.
>obsessing over females
chemical reactions in his brain causes him to go mad and kill everyone (and also awaken the sharingan)
You can't really compare what Obito did to the few fodder samurai that Sasuke killed.
Obito is responsible for everything bad that happened in the series and he single handedly started a world war in which more than 40 thousand ninjas died.
Not to mention that if Sasuke threw himself into prison then Gaara should do that as well.
Naruto just likes to idolize and forgive people who are more or less like him but went the wrong path somewhere in their life.
That's why he's all over Gaara, Nagato, Obito and most of all his lover Sausage, but doesn't give a fuck about Madara, Kakuzu, Orochimaru or Kisame.
Even the people in the series know it
He killed hundreds of people and wanted to fuck up the whole world because his little crush kicked the bucket on a mission when they were kids.
That's pretty cool yo.
>Committed suicide to avoid being a single dad
I mean, I can understand. He wasn't going to be able to smash his 10/10 wife every night so why live?
But best? He's not Madara, son.
The fact he was the main villain for 90% of the series. He was like nardo Darth Vader, even had the same stupid backstory of girl he likes dies and he turns evil in an attempt to bring her back.
And like Vader, he stuck around with Sheev Uchiha for pretty much no reason after learning the shit that could have been used to revive Rin from Kabuto and Nagato.
France fucking love the prequels. Revenge of the Siths was exhibited out of competition on Cannes and it received applauses from the audience. France and Japan are like peas in a pod
