Has there ever been a love between men as pure as these two?
Tsuru did a good job with the episode.
In typical Narutard mediocre fashion, they didn't even break that ground first, or best.
Next week's episode will be some mix of filler and canon.
Don't count on them adapting the end of chapter 699 anytime soon. I'm pretty sure they're going to milk the mini-time skip between the end of Infinite Tsukuyomi and Sasuke leaving the village for as long as possible.
Is this CG?
Super thin lines and them being really fucking on model, even to the bruise lines. I was kinda convinced it's 3D until I noticed the regular 2D imperfections when Naruto turned to face Sasuke.
Also, it being contrasted with the shit, QUALITY-ridden, normal animation with the ugly thick lines enforces it even more.
I actually started to tear up a little at that part.
I've never really liked Sasuke, but seeing that much regret and realization on his face was something else.
>mfw this part
Where the fuck was this shit in the manga kishi
>sasuke says the village hated naruto for the fox and himself for being an uchiha
>for being an uchiha
As if anyone ever did that you fuckin revisionist (((uchiha))). Even Tobirama was compassionate enough to domesticate your stock rather than slaughter you all as he should have.
Sounds dope. This is when he's fighting against an Ice Style user from Haku's clan, right? I haven't read it yet, but I know about some of the things that goes down in that novel.
The whole reason that the Uchiha were going to rebel was that they were being treated as second class and kept out of the village's governing body.
But it's revisionist that anyone disliked Sasuke for being an Uchiha. If anything, the whole village felt sorry for him.
>in part 1 everyone was actually dicksucking uchiha to the maximum
>sasuke was an acknowledged prodigy
>girls lusting over him en masse
Sauce completely blind to the reality as per usual
Only the kids idolized him.
The adults either pities, like, the japanese way where they only gossip and shit, or the upper brass who's all like, watch this kid, he might grow up to be a cunt like the rest of his family.
That's actually not true either, or not as implied. 99% of the uchiha were being persecuted came from obito when he was already lying out the butthole to manipulate sasuke. All we ever saw/heard about in flashbacks was the upper crust treating them like suspicious assholes for acting like suspicious assholes.
I think Orochimaru berates Tobirama for making the Uchiha the police force and shunting them off to the far side of the village. He more or less admits that it was easier to keep and eye on them and potentially deal with them that way.
Wrong. Kakashi basically ditched his team leader duties to counsel and train Sasuke personally. Even more so when he had to deal with the cursed seal. People were offering him all the support he could've asked for. Even Naruto didn't get that treatment back then. Sauce is just an ungrateful cunt.
They both get pretty tall. Naruto is like 5'11" as an adult, and Sasuke is 6'0".
Makes no sense desu. They already lived in their compound, like every other fucking clan, and being made the police gives them a lot of power and if they weren't stupid a lot of close respect from the civilian sector. If it were anyone else but these Schizophrenic idiots they'd be happy with it.
Ahh Ahh Ano hi no yume
It would add all the lewd implications to the story
>femsauce and the snake dick timeskip
>femsauce pleasuring Obito for dem sharingans
also don't forget
>naruto telling Hinata off
>sakura being written out of the story altogether
A lot of people are assuming that next week's episode will get us to the end of chapter 699. If that's the case, then episode 480 could be anything from
>a series of flashbacks
>a novel adaptation
>an adaptation of Naruto and Hinata's date
>original filler between them
However, there's also the possibility that episode 479 won't adapt through the end of chapter 699. If that's the case, then 480 will probably be about Neji's funeral.
>I was an Uchiha
>We were ostracized from the village and treated like outcasts
>And we resented the village and its people
WHAT THE FUCK? THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENED
Everybody worshiped the ground Sasuke stepped on, constantly praising him as a genius. The only reason he was alone is because HE rejected everyone else, he always went off on his own and was anti-social.
They're trying to create a connection between him and Naruto where none exists.
It would be a disservice to these final episodes to actually compare them to their manga counterparts. Kishi should feel totally ashamed.
Yeah, he probably was so adamant to finish it on that 700 mark that he rushed through a lot of things.
Yeah. It kinda broke the sequence. It'd be perfect if he said it as the title card flashes in before the ED.
>>We were ostracized from the village and treated like outcasts
Anon, that's literally what happened. You realize that the entire coup they planned that ended up getting them killed was because of this exact reason, right? The village feared the Uchiha's eye powers and there were people even suspecting them of being behind the Kyuubi attack. They were outcasts.
>constantly praising him as a genius
Because geniuses are totally not ending up as outcasts most of the time, right?
I was going to be really angry if they left that part out. Sasuke hadn't called Naruto
since Part I.
It didn't happen to Sasuke though. Since he was the last Uchiha, everyone felt sorry for him. Show me one scene where anyone is shown ostracizing or hating kid Sasuke for being an Uchiha.
His teachers, including Iruka, constantly praised him. During the Chunin Exam everyone praised him and expected great things of him.
Fact remains, in the Manga we were never shown any indication of him being ostracized. This is something the anime made up.
Honestly, it'd make more sense.
you really think they're only gonna squeeze out 12 HAHAHAA
They'll be adapting some of the LN side stories in the Winter. Considering the god awful Boruto manga is still rehashing unoriginal movie content, they'd probably either wait a bit or fill the time with filler/more side stories.
People seem to forget that Sasuke was loved by his classmates because they were just children who thought he was cool. Teachers (mostly young Chunin like Iruka) found him to be very skilled, but never mentioned it was because he was an Uchiha.
Kakashi didn't believe the stigma that the Uchiha were evil; his best friend when he was a child was an Uchiha who sacrificed himself and gave Kakashi his most sacred possession. He also had Itachi as his squad mate while in the Anbu, who was exceptionally skilled and kind.
Outside of the main cast, the higher-ups (aside from the Hokages) always despised the Uchiha and ordinary citizens feared them after the Nine Tails event. Sure, some villagers felt sorry for Sasuke, but would you really like going around seeing nothing but pitying faces? And that doesn't mean all of them did. Rumors probably did go around about Sasuke and the Uchiha as well.
He towers over Hinata, though.
Some of the flashbacks were extraneous, and the parts that were actually adapted from the manga felt a little rushed, like they were talking too fast. It still made me feel feelings, though.
None of this shit would have happened if Hashirama didn't stop Tobirama from killing his boyfriend.
The Uchihas were seen with a healthy amount of suspicion considering their innate mental problems, but were also given the role of law enforcers and had all the chances to better their images through their actions, and the way thinks looked it was sllowly going that way until the mental poblems come out again and we get a fuckhuge fox demon rampaging across the city.
The people were right in getting super suspicious of the clan that has the power to control the Fox, and the Uchihas were right in getting outraged over this suspicion, but none of this would have happened if not for a certain Uchiha nutjob starting shit again. With all that said, it's still no excuse for the Uchihas to start a coup when they still lived pretty decent lives as civilians and were fucking legends among shinobis.
He probably realized that getting an arm made of Hashirama's DNA will also give him a second rinnegan and god knows what other power-ups. He felt that power creep was already retarded as it is and decided not to complicate things further.
>when waiting for the town loser pays off
>it's still no excuse for the Uchihas to start a coup when they still lived pretty decent lives as civilians and were fucking legends among shinobis.
It also made no sense for Sasuke to go rogue on his village for no tangible reason then proceed to feel downright murderous towards it over the years. Uchihas are mental.
>that angry stare on Sasuke
>how dare these little shits say that im awesome
>senju privilege you don't know how I feel on the inside
Children act depending on what they see or on what they are told, since it was the first day of school I doubt that they had seen Sauce's superior skills and since they aren't soldiers it's very unlikely that they had seen an Uchiha in action.
So the only explanation for their comment is that their parents told them that the Uchiha are the strongest and most awesome clan in the village. Hardly any discrimination.
>the adults fear Uchiha enough to pretend nothing's wrong with exterminating all but one or two of them
>the children think Uchiha are the coolest people ever
>Naruto's dad, THE HOKAGE, saved the town by sealing fox Godzilla into Naruto
>Naruto looks just like him
>EVERYBODY hates Naruto solely for having a dormant demon inside of him
Their feelings literally should be the other way around especially considering Sasuke literally did want to destroy every ninja village in existence. The fuck is wrong with this town?
>>the adults fear Uchiha enough to pretend nothing's wrong with exterminating all but one or two of them
Most people were unaware of any danger posed by the Uchiha, it was mostly the higher-ups who were afraid. After Itachi killed them all, odds are Sasuke gained a lot of symapthy and they retroactively started praising the Uchiha as a great clan killed by an awful person.
It's especially weird because Sasuke has NEVER claimed he was ostracized before. In fact, he kept telling Naruto that they weren't the same at all, because Naruto had always been alone and never known love, whereas Sasuke had lost the ones he loved.
They were regarded as super awesome people even before the massacre
He was a kid who saw the slaughter of his entire clan and was lied about the reason, blaming his brother, then he lived alone without an adult or therapy and had a pedophile immortal snake scientist after his body for a while as only adult's influence.
It was perfectly understandable for Sasuke to have his insane tirade after all that stress and shitty background. He got over it and became a responsible adult who is a huge bro. That's important.
>a responsible adult who is a huge bro
It was at this point that I realized your post is sarcastic
There's a reason for this in regards to Naruto. Citizens don't know what happened that night. They just know that the Nine Tails attacked and that the Fourth saved them. Information leaks that it's Naruto and the Nine Tails was controlled by the Uchiha. However, it's illegal to discuss the events of that night (to prevent more rumors/info leaks from occurring). Naruto's birth was hidden from the public (to avoid things like that night) meaning citizens don't know who he's actually related to. People probably guessed he was Minato's son, but again, it's illegal to discuss such things. Too bad Kakashi fucked that up. No one wants to associate with him for fear of being attacked. Naruto only made things worse by acting out and causing trouble.
You realize that's when he was insane and a teenager? Sasuke volunteered to leave the village to investigate for years in place of Naruto who was going to follow him. As an adult, Sasuke isn't just sane, and unedgy but also pretty decent man. He's not like Obito or Madara who went crazy as fucking adults. He just had a breakdown as a kid, but who didn't in Naruto? Gaara was also insane. Neji was willing to kill Hinata or did you forget?
Who is the best Kage and why is it Tobirama?
He's not, retard. Did you read the manga with your ass? He volunteered to take that mission when Naruto wanted to do the same. Naruto wanted to abandon his family too for this, but Sasuke took the burden for the two of them. And now he's back and he's pretty good as father figure. You're just stupid to not realize that teens are both edgy and dumb as fuck, Sasuke grew up and let got of his hatred, instead he became a Batman to Naruto's Superman. A feat that Madara and the Coolest Guy couldn't do, who were edgy pieces of shit as grown ass men.
If we're talking about Hokage, then Tobirama could be considered best only because all the rest(-Naruto and Kakashi since we know next to nothing about their hokageship) just fucked up way more. Don't get me wrong, I like him, but at the end of the day his decisions and creations(Edo Tensei) still led to huge problems later on.
The best Hokage would actually be Danzo. RIP.
He's a huge bro because of that, he took a bullet for Naruto. If was for Naruto, ugly daughter wouldn't have been born and Boruto wouldn't have met his father either. Naruto WANTED TO GO to this mission too.
He's a better father to Bolt than Naruto is.
>listens to his pussy brother
>failed to gas the uchiha
>failed to pacify the uchiha (not his fault really)
>invented only the most annoying jutsus that become a complete pain in the ass for everyone else decades down the line
>despite naming them forbidden failed to prevent a fucking rogue ninja from learning them
>died to a bunch of no-names
He wasn't that great
Nope. Bort just a fucking idiot who's whole stigma against his father is to not be like him much like Naruto didnt want to be like Minato. So the only way to rebel against his father who's too busy with work for him is to go to a father who hasn't seen his child in 10 fucking years.
>listens to his pussy brother
The strongest person on the planet was fuly prepared to beat up and maybe kill his own lover to protect his gay lover, he knew that it wouldn't change a damn thing if if he went and died for nothing
>failed to gas the uchiha
Agreed, he was too soft
>invented only the most annoying jutsus that become a complete pain in the ass for everyone else decades down the line
Don't blame him for being one of the only fuckers in the story that actually bothered to invent jutsus while everyone else copied them or relied on ANCIENT MAGIC. His jutsus were a pain in the ass because nobody bothered to innovate like he did
>despite naming them forbidden failed to prevent a fucking rogue ninja from learning them
Can't blame him for info leak after his dead, blame the fuckers in charge at the time
>died to a bunch of no-names
The stronger you are in this setting the more retarded/psychotic you get, I'd say it's a plus
As for the best Hokage? Probably Kakashi, just look at that reconstruction and progress during his rule. This is what happens when you get a reasonable ruler that isn't weighted down by shit like Uchihas
Nice job outing yourelf as a level 1 reader, baka
>As for the best Hokage? Probably Kakashi, just look at that reconstruction and progress during his rule. This is what happens when you get a reasonable ruler that isn't weighted down by shit like Uchihas
Kakashi probably was one of the best Hokage. Sadly, he was also the weakest by a huge margin.
>beat Hiruzen easily
How? He doesn't have the hax Kamui anymore. Hiruzen is one of the strongest Kages in all villages, if we exclude Jesus-tier Naruto and the broken ass Senju bros.
Honestly, Sharingan was one of the worst things about Kakashi, because it gave him no gas tank. He'd get tired after one round.
Consider that his father, the White Fang, was respected on the level of the Sannin, and he never had any magical eye hax. That could have been Kakashi, if Obito hadn't fucked him over.
His abilities? Are you fucking stupid? Should I copy paste my post from a yesterday thread again?
He could use very high level techniques of all 5 basic chakra natures, as well as extremely powerful fuinjutsu and had a harambe summon that transformed into an unbreakable staff that could extend in length to Masamune levels. And that was when he was an old man.
How is Kakashi going to "easily" beat him? Can Kakashi even use Raikiri effectively anymore? I know that at the start of his LN side story, he's depressed because he's unable to since he needed the Sharingan. Is he going to summon his ninja dogs on Hiruzen's ass?
He'd only get tired if he acually used his Sharingan, it's why he has it covered all the time. The fact that Kakashi ended up relying on his Sharingan in all his major fights goes to show that without it he's not that impressive.
I didn't say it made him a bro, retard. He wasn't allowed to contact anyone besides the leaders of the villages because it was a top secret mission. Sakura had no qualms with this either. He didn't make the rule, the Kages did.
There's like one Sasuke fan arguing with everyone else in this string.
There's no real reason why Sasuke couldn't see his daughter. He casually stayed at Konoha a few times, even before his mission was done. He wasn't protecting anyone by staying away indefinitely. Him never seeing Salad was just a cheap way to build drama with the character.
Chuckled. You've probably never seen Pepesnake Pepemaru.
He was traveling through different dimensions for the most part. It isn't until Gaiden that Sasuke was nearing home and was attacked by Shin, who could have been the first sign of another terrorist attack. So, he sent the letter out to Naruto so they could immediately deal with it.
>He casually stayed at Konoha a few times, even before his mission was done.
Nice proof, that picture, shows him getting back to Konoha AFTER the mission, but nice try
You sad little, mong
Sasuke has never returned to the village after being sent off by the Kage. He leaves two different times: one for his journey of atonement in which he does visit Koniga on the rare occasion (before Sarada is born) and one for his journey to find out about Kaguya's remnants (while Sakura was pregnant). He was too busy dimension hopping and making sure another God didn't show up to enslave all of humanity, again.
He was Sharingan no Kakashi after all. When you have broken eye powers, might as well put them to use.
Hey, remember when the Sharingan's main purpose was copying the enemy's techniques instantly? Me neither. I miss that Sharingan instead of Susanoo spam.
>S-STOP MAKING FUN OF SASUKE, GUISE!
He stayed at Konoha three times that we've seen:
1. In the flashback during the Gaiden, just after Naruto was declared Hokage. This is when he tells the Five Kage about his Kaguya suspicions. Keep in mind that Salad is like 8-years-old here, and he doesn't even stop in to see her.
2. At the end of the Gaiden. Even though his mission is still on-going, he stays at home for a couple days at least. Why couldn't he do this before?
3. During the events of Boruto: The Movie. Again, he stays at home for weeks, despite the fact that his mission hasn't ended.
Read the Gaiden again. Sasuke discovered that some remnants of Kaguya were roaming around, possibly scouting out the Earth. He immediately has Naruto hold a meeting with the five Kage (and Sakura).
>one for his journey to find out about Kaguya's remnants (while Sakura was pregnant)
No, this scene takes place when Naruto is Hokage. That means Salad is already in the Academy at this point. Sasuke stops by the village to tell the Kage about the Kaguya stuff, but he doesn't even see his daughter.
Father of the year.
1. Sakura is still pregnant at this time. The fuck are you talking about?
2. He was dimension hopping.
3. He returns home to have Konoha analyze the scroll he got from the Otsutsuki Castle, you retard. Watch the movie again.
You read the Gaiden again. There's no reason why Sasuke could never see Salad. Even if his mission is full time, he could have at least stopped by from time to time. I mean, there was a time he was even in the village, but never went to see her.
>1. Sakura is still pregnant at this time. The fuck are you talking about?
No she isn't. that scene takes place after Naruto was made Hokage. Sarada was already pretty old by then.
>2. He was dimension hopping.
No excuse to never stop home.
>3. He returns home to have Konoha analyze the scroll he got from the Otsutsuki Castle, you retard. Watch the movie again.
Stop bending over backwards to defend your idol. He could have stopped in from time to time but chose not to, because he's a bad father.
>everyone knows Kaguya
Only Naruto, Sakura, Kakashi, Sasuke and the Kage know of her existence. And he was searching her dimensions and the Earth to ensure something like Black Zetsu wasn't around. We see later on in Gaiden that Shin does get a hold of a piece of the Ten Tails and uses it to scout out areas and as a checkpoint.
>No excuse to never stop home.
Are you dense?
Doyou know what a dimension is?
>ignores all the other stuff because he can't refute it
Anyway, there's nothing to suggest that Sasuke was literally trapped in other dimensions for a decade. He had the power to come home and visit; he chose not to.
Why does it bother you so much to have to accept that he's a deadbeat dad? Are you really that big of a Sasuke fan? I feel like this is what it would be like if Naruto posted on 4chan.
You should have known better, baka
You can't beat the shadow clone network
whats the name of the soundtrack in this one? not the opening part
Do they seriously not screen academy applicants through psychological exams?
Obito is a soldier. He was trained to be able to handle death. Yet Rin's heroic sacrifice during wartime to protect her village is enough to push him over the edge.
He was a ticking time bomb waiting to go off.
Well, there's two things
1. Uchiha are already very emotional beings compared to other clans.
2. Obito worked for months, perhaps years, after he realized he wasn't dead and neither were his friends so that he could go back to living a normal life and protect those precious to him. For him to work so hard so he could show up late and watch the person he wanted to protect die at the hands of the person who swore to protect her for him must have mentally fucked him. And he's still a kid at this time.
>Do they seriously not screen academy applicants through psychological exams?
They are barely few generations past using literal child soldiers in major conflicts and you're seriously asking that?
It would only be successful in making him feel even more entitled to his fucked up worldviews. It could've probably helped Naruto but the irony is that he eventually managed without it.
If anything Sasuke could use some
As far as the broadcast goes they still lump the production numbers in with the original series so 480 of Shippuden is the 700th episode.
>「 NARUTO ･ HINATA 」
>Detested by the people of the village, Naruto lived alone until a certain person appeared before him.
If that is an accurate summary it might end up being something of a tie-in to the flashback sequences from The Last movie or otherwise in that same timeframe.
Is the Shroomsday productions guy just doing animations now?
Looks like there is probably going to be filler and adaptations for the multiple timeskips and the montage in 699 and before 700 and likely the light novels as well. Probably going to also do the Scarlet Spring 10-chapter epilogue series at some point after chapter 700.
Now that I think about it, do the Daimyos still exist? It would be very weird for a feudal system to still exist in such a technologically advanced society.
It didn't even make much sense to begin with that no Ninja ever killed the Daimyos to take their place.
>they spent the whole episode lying on the ground
>cast list is two people
Good old Naruto
>Even more so when he had to deal with the cursed seal
What did you expect? For Kakashi to not take care of Sasuke's cursed seal because Naruto didn't suffer from it?
>Kakashi basically ditched his team leader duties to counsel and train Sasuke personally
Don't be that, Anon. Kakashi gave Sasuke some exercizes to do while reading some porn in the background.
Kakashi didn't ditch anything for him, if anything he choose to train the first student that come to him, which happen to not be the retard that need constant attention and personalized training to stay focused. But you would know that if you weren't self-inserting so much, narutard.
Not that anon but Kakshi dumped Naruto onto that one shitlord teacher with the glasses who Naruto hated. And he also ditched Sakura who didn't have a teacher at all until she begged Tsunade.
I think the whole three man genen teams were fucking stupid, and the fact that the teams almost never got to train with the other teams was even more retarded. It would have made more sense for each team were comprised of students who had similar ninjutsus and pared with a teacher who could could do the same.
>>「 NARUTO ･ HINATA 」
>>Detested by the people of the village, Naruto lived alone until a certain person appeared before him.
Just fucking no. I want some acknowledgement from Naruto for Hinata's original love confession after the war and Naji's funeral.
No more retcon flashback shit
>What did you expect? For Kakashi to not take care of Sasuke's cursed seal because Naruto didn't suffer from it?
More like pay attention to the student that has a literal demon fox inside of him and who was suffering from it just as bad at the time. His favoritism is obvious. I don't see Naruto complaining about that though while Sasuke has the nerve to say that he was ostracized.
>Kakashi gave Sasuke some exercizes
And performed some complex seal rituals on him
And begged him to not give in to the edgelord inside
And taught him his own signature move, Jiraiya style
Yeah, and that teacher turned out to be the best teacher in the series
Jiraiya took two years to teach Nacho how to make his Rasengan bigger and how to use the Kyubi chakra to Chimpout and REEEE his opponents into submission
"The Last" didn't make any fucking sense really. Hinata is OOC telling Naruto to be quite while she knits a stupid red scarf and she already told the faggot that she loved him years ago. Am I supposed to believe Naruto love her like he loves ramin when she confessed during the pain arc or some shit?
>Naruto lived alone until a certain person appeared before him.
It's just that anon's OC donut steal
Don't worry about it
It's funny because most of Naruto's peers would've been sacred of him as well. It's just his luck that he got stuck with an edgelord that wouldn't acknowledge a nine-tailed monster if it was biting his head off, and a girl who's so menstrual that her arrogance developed it's own consciousness.
It's mostly that Gaara's powers were on all the time and he could barely control them, whereas Naruto was a goober that sucked at everything, so none of the kids were scared of him, they just thought he was a pathetic weakling.
I wasn't joking, the modern cities existed from the very beginning. Ninjas were pretty much hippies
>Yeah, but nobody OSTRACIZED Sasuke for being an Uchiha
Because Naruto's plot isn't poorly planned at the last minute like any jump shonen?
Retcons aside, I don't remember Sasuke telling he ever felt personally ostracized. Ostracization was what caused the whole situation between his clan and the village, (and it is ackowledged for true by the Hokages), but Sasuke was completely unaware of it before someone informed him.
In itself, ostracization has nothing to do with his motivation. He goes after Konoha because they are behind his family murder and that's it.
I can finally pick this back up and skip all the fucking filler and maybe even have a decent time
Not all of them. Trying to steal a scroll is an unforgivable crime in Konoha that carries a life sentence.
>kept Madara's corpse for science and thanks to that the former came back from death.
> invented the edo-tensei
>This is what happens when you get a reasonable ruler that isn't weighted down by shit like Uchihas
Or when the world is at peace because ninja villages aren't trying to kill each other thanks to the ninja alliance and jesusninja.
I'm sure it have nothing to see with Naruto being a shit at ninja things or interupting the classroom for making stupid pranks and Sasuke being the opposite in this not-japanese society.
It must kill you to know she ended up in a loveless, kissless marriage with a deadbeat husband and a literal broken home she'll be paying off until she's dead.
Did you notice how she's not back in her townhouse in Boruto the Movie? She's coming out of an apartment.
She literally ruined the one thing she had in life, other than her daughter.
>madara-sized nuclear explosion this early into the story
Gotta give credit to that guy Deidara. The pragmatic part of the Akatsuki should've honestly gave up on the tailed beast chase and just forced that faggot to train some disciples as the tailed beast nuclear equivalent.
Look at their faces! Naruto is sooo happy and proud of himself, he´s just thinkig: We did it Kurama, we did it.
Sasuke on the other hand just wonder if it would have been better for him to just be killed in the middle of Kaguya´s battle, he´s just like: Why is taking me so long to die?
I really wish he had the balls to make them gay at the end. Not even a yaoi fan or anything, but it would justify their obsession with each other and especially justify all the homoerotic tones and pictures he put in his work to attract schoolgirls to the manga.
Dont half ass it is all I'm saying. The fact Sasuke ends up with Sakura particularly blows my mind as he never once showed anything but contempt for her and tried to kill her twice.
Post your face when you found out that the series is going on for two more episodes; one is a clip show and the other is filler based on the "Last" film.
Sakura never come to him for training and kishi don't care about her. But Kakashi being a shit teacher and being extra lazy have nothing to see with Sasuke.
>And performed some complex seal rituals on him
It take Jiraya to deal with a seal like the one on Naruto. Kakashi don't even realize there is problem with it. Demons leaking is apparently pretty normal when you have a nuclear weapon inside your body. Also the fox don't suppress naruto's natural chakra or weaken his body, unlike the cursed seal.
>And begged him to not give in to the edgelord inside
lecturing is favoritism?
>And taught him his own signature move, Jiraiya style
Yes, because Sauce asked him and have the chkra nature}sharingan required. Also, Naruto (because of the fox seal) has so much difficulties mixing chakra he don't know how to walk on water.
Whatever favoritism Kakashi give to Sasuke in your eyes, is not a request of the latter but the former's decision.
Honestly, the only character development Sakura needed was being able to let this dickhead go, yet she wasnt able to do it.
Now shes basically a single mom with a bastard child. Serves here right desu.
To be fair, foundation repair must take a really long time to do when the only person that can make houses in a second is stuck being Orochimaru's parole officer (and doing a shit job at it)
>The fact Sasuke ends up with Sakura particularly blows my mind as he never once showed anything but contempt for her and tried to kill her twice.
Him ending gay would have blow my mind as much. Sasuke is such a devoted asexual,
even when married
>not making sauce head of Anbu Black Ops
People forget that Sasuke being privileged was a huge part of his character, to contrast him with Naruto.
He was born from famous clan, the whole town feels sorry for him, girls want his dick, he gets special attention and training from his elders, he gets his abilities and talents through through heredity and not effort like Naruto.
That used to be the main, and best, message of Naruto; hard work beats a special lineage. We see that in his rival with Sasuke, his fight with Neji, Rock Lees wholecharacter etc. Once Sasuke turns evil, notice how he stops having to "try" to get stronger. Curse seal, stealing from Orochimaru, stealing from Itachi, stealing from Danzo. He was set up to be the perfect anti-naruto, the antithesis is the series themes.
Then Naruto became "the chosen one",literally Jesus, and the whole thing was ruined. Makes me pissed cause having your MC be a loser who tries hard over a "chosen one" is quite rare.
Anyway, in another series Sasuke would be the MC and Naruto some side character, that was the whole point.
He is too OP to be made the head of the jobber squad
>15 years and all you get is mad
Always lose my shit at this phrase
Dude, the moment sasuke LEARNED the level of speed and power and skills of fucking Lee in months was the moment I realized that everything even slightly cool in the series was going to be given to sasuke.
Genjutsu, which had all kinds of potential was completetely fucked because MAGIC EYES TRUMPS EVERYTHING.
Sakura could have been the one to use and see through and manipulate genjutsu and heal. Be an actual ninja.
Not be a walking joke character. The living embodiment of the LOL SO FUNNY SHE HURTS THE MAIN MALE CHARACTER WITH OUT OF NOWHERE SUPER STRENGTH FOR JOKES character taken seriously.
>probably the best medical ninja now in the world

Why would she regret that? Because it goes against your meme spouting bullshit? I'm not even a Sakurafag, but you're a retard.
People seem to forget that Sasuke trained his ass for years with Orochimaru and he keep bleeding his eyes out whenever he used the Sharingan, furthermore, we see Sasuke being a shitter using it at first, specially the Mangekyo, and getting better at using it's skills with every use. He couldn't even control Amaterasu at first but people make it sound like he popped out from his mother pussy shitting black fire on a Susanoo placenta.
If Sasuke's a special snowflake then Naruto is 100 times as much as him considering he's has aryan Namikaze genes, Uzumaki strong body and lots of chakra genes, got personal training from Jiraiya twice then got training from the super duper special frogs who only the bestest best people could train with and last but not least an infinite chakra battery inside him.
What did Sasuke got in comparison? Eyehax, training from Kakashi, training from Orochimaru, new eyehax, Itachi's eyehax. That's about it.
People also bitch about Sasuke only using eyehax as an all purpose solution but Naruto spamming only rasengan and clones is somehow okay.
>best, message of Naruto; hard work beats a special lineage
I think the moral there was supposed to be that Naruto misjudged Sauce, because he is naturally good at ninja shit, and that Sauce misjuedge Naruto, who has 0 talent but works hard and has luck. Naruto also has an actual god trapped inside of him though so it isn't like he wasn't already lucky in some sense
Sakura is the one who got the shortest end of the stick out of team 7
>Doesnt live with his wife
>Sees his daughter so little she doesnt even think shes his
>First time back in the village for months and he goes to see Naruto and not his wife.
That would actually mean something...if kabuto was demonstrably better at it then her in every way and actually able to use those skills in a fight.
She's kinda shit to be honest. Hell Hinata and Ten Ten make more sense as medical ninjas then her.
>through heredity and not effort
I disagree with that. Sasuke has been shown to train pretty hard throughout all of part 1. And to be honest, both Naruto and Sasuke are geniuses as far as learning and making new techniques and mastering difficult or time consuming training. They both do it through different ways of course, Sasuke with his innate talent for picking up things and Naruto through his talent for learning very quickly in practice.
None of them actually get shit without effort at all, despite both having several hereditary/special abilities.
>the amount of downplaying of Sasuke's shit
>the amount of overexaggerating for Naruto's
Wow, what an objective comparison. You're right, Sasuke just got some "eyes" that, you know, just happen to be able to fucking bend reality and shit while Naruto got this super amazing "strong body". Fucking kek.
Salad stopped being interesting right in the middle of that naruto gaiden.
Just completely fucking stopped.
She only got worse in the horrible movies and the even worse Naruto Super manga.
>both Naruto and Sasuke are geniuses as far as learning and making new techniques and mastering difficult or time consuming training
Nope. Naruto was known for being a flunky and he needed help from Jiraiya and Kakashi to make better use of his skills (Kakashi pointed out the fucking obvious to make him realized how to shorten his Rasenshuriken training, without that he wouldn't have gotten it because he's too fucking stupid) the whole point of Naruto's character was that he got to where he was by asking for him from others while Sauce got everything handed him, after Part I we never actually see him training at all.
Did he even have a character arc? Honestly seemed like a chain of whimsical decisions that never followed a single pattern
>I want to kill my brother
>Wait I love my brother
>Gotta destroy Konoha though
>On second thought, gotta protect Konoha, but in a roundabout retarded way, of course
>But not before I assault random people on the side
>Fuck the snake guy btw
>I also don't want my brother's eyes
>On second thought, I want my brother's eyes. Being blind is getting in the way of stirring shit.
>I suppose I will play along with this shady Tobi guy
>Whoops I failed I suppose I will do other thing now
>Snake guy c'mon I need you
>Huh somehow I'm in the middle of a giant war
>Haha I suppose I will just help the protagonists now. Wildcard, bitches
>Amazing. I didn't get my shit pushed in this time. I suppose it's about time to switch sides again.
>I AM THE DARK KNIGHT, NARUTO
>Are you fucking telling me that Kabuto isn't an objectively superior and more powerful medical nin?
Can Kabuto be capable of healing hundreds of people in a war in one go?
No? Checkm8 autist
So which episodes should I watch if I don't even care about Naruto but I just want to watch the sakuga?
Will we ever get a scene of Grandpa Hiashi?
>Did he even have a character arc?
I forgot the whole point of his character. Seriously he just randomly appears at the end of the war and just says "fight me now" and that's it.
The fucking slug did that. She just supplied the chakra.
She wasn't personally healing everyone with some technique. She just dished out the chakra which ANYONE could have done.
>Never read the manga or watched the movies/read the novels
>Decide to talk shit without knowing how and why things happened
>Anyways... - changes goalposts: w-w-w-why does it bother you that Sasuke xDDD
This is sad mate
I always found it funny that Iruka was voted in the top ten most popular characters consistantly.
I liked him popping up now and again, Especially when he tries to stop Naruto going to war.
>after Part I we never actually see him training at all.
Dense nigga, the series is named 'Naruto'
They don't show anyone except Naruto training because that's be fucking boring
A character more relevant than Hinata
Reason I like One Piece over Naruto.
Oda plans One Piece years in advance. While I'm sure this is flexible, he clearly has a set story he's following and the story compliments that. I never feel like One Piece is making this shit up week by week.
Kishimoto flat out admitted this. He comes up with rough plans but lets the story "develop" as he writes it each week. Its glaringly obvious in the many dropped and forgotten plot lines in Naruto.
Hell, the reason the gang even fights the woman at the end was because, in his own words, he "made Madara too powerful and couldn't think of a way to defeat him". So he just made "God" kill Madara and made her the final boss out of literally nowhere.
He's in every way you can name his real father. The guy that's been there for him and took care of him and will always look out for him when he can and has time to spend with him.
>That was in Part I when he couldn't control the curse seal, in Part II he never had such trouble
Yes which your dumbass don't seem to understand, he clearly over the years got his body use to it and extended the amount of time which is as to be expected when he had special training and growth for years personally from orochimaru.
>Oda plans One Piece years in advance.
>I'm going to show my new technique I swear I was training to use before!!!
>I promise I didn't pull it out my ass!!!!
t. Every strawhat with new powers
Say want you want about Naruto's filler, at least you can fucking skip it when re-watching it.
I dropped the One Piece anime due to them dragging out each episode to avoid filler arcs. Made it unwatchable.
They litterally showed everyone training in the series.
And shounen series without cool training arcs espescially with the other cool characters that like are oft considered weak.
Hell they don't even hint that he trains EVER after he gets the seal.
He just gets random powerups and drugs.
>summon the slug with a technque she learned
>s-she didn't do shit!
Face it, in a war people would rather have sakura who can heal herself AND summon shit that can heal hundreds of people too. Kabuto can't compete with her or tsunade.
>anyone could have done
kek only a specific few can summon the slugs
ANBU was probably disbanded under Naruto.
Some people love to bitche about Sasuke.
Yet they won't even bat an eye when Naruto special clones coupled with his high MP become alike an abused EXP multiplyer that allow him to learn in a week what other ninjas master in months or years. Heck, said people bitched more about Sasuke summoning an Hawke than they did when Minato revealed he had yang-kurama inside him.
Sasuke is too popular for his own good, I guess.
When did Orochimaru practice using snake magic?
When did Kiba get shown practicing?
When did they show Hashishrama learning to dab that good shit?
When did thery show Rin practicing her medic stuff?
When? In Part 1? Sure. By the end? No, they're about equal as masters. What exactly did Kabuto do that Sakura couldn't do in regards to medical ninjutsu exactly?
Then the entire point of Naruto's character fails, because he learned the Rasengan in like 2 weeks. He created the Rasen-Shuriken from scratch, something that even the creator of the Rasengan couldn't do, in a god damn week. He mastered senjutsu, which Jiraiya couldn't do in a life time, in a few weeks.
Fuck man, what a god damn failure. Also Naruto being able to work around the conventional ways by using clones for the Rasengan or Rasen-Shuriken or in general applying non-conventional ways of thinking into his fighting style is also a really god damn important talent.
Just because the series keeps trying to tell you that Naruto is a failure with words doesn't make it true in the slightest. If anything, he was a late bloomer.
The entire point of Naruto's character is that he's working with others to move forward and accomplish stuff. It's not that he sucks so bad that he can't do shit without others. He solo'd Pain when the entire village together got obliterated. What a dunce!
>Fuck man, what a god damn failure. Also Naruto being able to work around the conventional ways by using clones for the Rasengan or Rasen-Shuriken or in general applying non-conventional ways of thinking into his fighting style is also a really god damn important talent.
Only reason this work against anyone is that they forgot how to common sense
That, and there's no way anyone with infinite chakra will lose a fight of attrition
>the whole point of Naruto's character was that he got to where he was by asking for him from others while Sauce got everything handed him
>naruto gets random 9 tails mode when he's REALLY REALLY angry and it makes him a beast in part 1 and comes with no risks and even heals damage
>sauce gets random cursemark that makes him strong for a short amount of time before being paralyzed like a bitch in part 1
Defend this in part 1 narutards
I bet kishimoto just think that Naruto and Hinata's relationship would make more sense if he recons shit from the early days when all he really has to fucking do is have them hang out and develop a real relationship after the war is done. I mean, fuck how hard is that to accomplish.
>He has enough tentacles to rape everyone involved and then some
>'I bteter ignore those sold shadow clones, and focus on the main body, it's not like those tangible bodies that can use techniques all by themselves can do any harm'
>The man who was a ninja during Hashirama's time back when ninjas were real niggas
Kishi should have told the editors at jump to suck his yellow balls and went with his plan to make Salad Sasuke and Karins daughter.
That Karin died in child birth and Sasuke wandered around with his daughter all wolf and cub style till he found his way back to the village.
He realizes that he can't take care of a child and the village raised him and his friend so he leaves her in the care of the only people in the world he trusts. Naruto.
Naruto takes care of her as his second daughter but Sakura takes a special interest in her and after something happens she decides to adopt her. She even pretends that her and Sasuke are/were a couple so that she won't suspect anything.
A kind of mimicry of Naruto's past.
She treats her like her daughter and Karin loves her as her mother. Sasuke and Sakura begin to bond and spend more time together.
Later she finds out that she's not really her mother and the gaiden happens with a few notable changes. Salad keeps the super strength punch and does it to the big bad, she screams let go of my mother, Sakura is shocked and says that's my girl.
Would have made sakura a more interesting character and showed that she was both mature and able to love someone else and not like a sad wife with a deadbeat husband.
Also the older women who read Naruto would have loved that I believe.
Given Sasuke some pathos and made him look like a tortured father and husband who's drowning himself in work and some mission.
Allowed the two to get together in a way that makes sense. And Sakura getting preggers with a male pink haired sharingan user and his personaltiy and what he would look like in the future would send the fujos into a panty soaking frenzy.
Japan ain't ready for that shit. Imagine the reaction from Abe and the other pols if one of the most popular children's manga in Japan decided to put a stamp of approval on masculine homosexuality by making the protagonists gay. The shitstorm over 'muh moral decay' would have been over 9000, especially with the possibility of ginning up the 'indoctrination of children' angle. Kishimoto doesn't strike me as someone who is politically interested as Togashi. I think he ended the way he should have. Trying to make a statement would only have complicated things.
>A bunch more filler incoming
>NarutoxHinata, Explaining how Choji and Black chick got together, ect
>Sakura relegated to the backround lusting after the Sauce
>Kishi should have told the editors at jump to suck his yellow balls and went with his plan to make Salad Sasuke and Karins daughter.
>That Karin died in child birth and Sasuke wandered around with his daughter all wolf and cub style till he found his way back to the village.
Wait what? Since when was Kishi thinking about doing this? This is your head canon right?
Super powerful masters are never shown training, only teaching or kicking ass.
Kiba was shown training with his dog a few times. Not a full training arc but just hints that he was doing something .
Hashirama is all SUPER POWERFUL MASTER OF UNIQUE POWERS and gets a pass.
I mean, we know the reason Hinata like NAruto is cause he saved her from bullies. Dont think its the worst thing if they expand on that encounter a little. Maybe she goes to see him to say thanks, I dunno.
>I bet kishimoto just think that Naruto and Hinata's relationship would make more sense if he recons shit from the early days when all he really has to fucking do is have them hang out and develop a real relationship after the war is done. I mean, fuck how hard is that to accomplish.
What does Kishimoto have to do with Pierrot's filler? Stop being a retard
Welcome to Shonen anime, where twist "new moves" are part of every fight.
Dude drew the villains for the next 10 years of the manga, when they eventually appeared each and every one looked the same as that initial drawing.
What an autist.
Sakura's only claim to medical ninjitsu mastery is healing period and being able to do that diamond on forehead thing AND super strength punch.
That's litterally it.
Kabuto can do all of that, plus his canon feats in the series puts him above her pure skill alone. He can also use his medical ninjitsu skill in battle.
She can punch hard.
There's no contest.
Kabuto is the superior medical ninja.
>Oda plans everything
>Except all these asspulls
>No, those don't count
At least Kishimoto didn't make it so Iruka was secretly a super ultra ninja wizard that got injured protecting Naruto against fodder because.... reasons, unlike Oda.
The first part?
He was basically outright fucking stating it. No bullshit it was right there.
But there is NO QUESTION that the editors of jump told him no.
the rest is what I think should have happened.
