The Hyuuga clan. Continuing a proud history of getting impaled for Naruto's sake.

God, what the hell? Did Kishi finally get one too many complaints that "Durr, you don't kill off enough major characters." and just decided to make this a freaking Gainax Ending by kiling ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE, because, really, fuck the entire concept of shounen??

Then again, I think I might like to see what would happen if it ends up with EVERYONE dead at Naruto's feet, and Madarobituubi still standing. Maybe he might go Super Saiyan or something. Naturally, he'd just use rinne tensei no jutsu to bring everyone back after the conclusion, but still. Seeing him go COMPLETELY off the deep end would be nice.

Meh, Kishi chose the WORST character to sacrifice. The one whose main theme and concept is all about destiny and those born with privilege.

I dunno, I think Naruto finally realized she exists. It took her a few awesome scenes and confessions but she finally got there.

Or maybe its because she slapped him to knock him out of his self-pitying bullshit. He IS something of a masochist regarding his romantic infatuations, see his feelings for Sakura and Sasuke.

- - -
Oh man but did this chapter drive the shippers wild...

Obviously those that ship Hinata/Naruto are overjoyed to a greater or lesser extent while those who fanatically worship Sakura/Naruto are rushing to find a Handwave to brush it all off somehow. Such as "Hinata is just going to die now and be forgotten" or "Sakura is the main heroine and all this came out of nowhere and means nothing compared to all the moments S & N have had together".

Just throwing in my 2-cents but since the fake confession and the fact when that generic dude hit on her during the war but she turned out to still be in love with Sasuke (while imaging him looking all evil and surrounded by flames) kind of makes it seem she's not meant to end with Naruto?
>> No. 80494

The Sasuke thing is still too much of an obstacle for NaruSaku, and with Naruto's increasingly growing awareness on Hinata, yeah, it's complicated.
>> No. 80495
Hinata didn't slap him. She gently put her hand on his cheek. There was no "motion" going into her hand so it wasn't a slap.

But if Hinata wants to bag Naruto she really needs to treat him like shit. Naruto is like a woman, notice how Sasuke treats him and how obsessed Naruto is with the Sauce. Naruto responds only when you treat him like shit.

Another good example is the Kakashi and Iruka relationships. Iruka treated Naruto like a son of sorts with empathy and kindness. End result? Naruto barely acknowledges his existence. Kakashi on the other hand was a much rougher mentor and as such Kakashi is more precious to Naruto.

So if Hinata wants Naruto she really needs to up her bitch factor and start abusing him for no reason other than he exists and makes a good punching bag as that one thunder chick found out when he was defending the Sauce.

If the Naruto manga were to suddenly end Naruto's story and become about a random new protagonist in the Shinobi World, it would be better.

All I know is that Idiot Heroes annoy me. Touma from Index is one of the most annoying faggots ever. So Index's former friends who worry over her amnesia try endlessly to keep her memories alive and fail every time. In comes Touma preaching "God damn it you people suck! I'll punch you and solve the problem without even knowing the mechanics of what's wrong with Index herself and it will MAGICALLY nonsensically work for me because I'm the protagonist GOD DAMN IT!!!" and it makes me just feel.....very irritated. To say the least.

>A moron who is only good at eating and fighting is rightfully not good for anything else.
Generally speaking they are good at eating and fighting and in believing in people/seeing the good in people's hearts/etc., too, not just eating and fighting. The message that they keep trying to send is that strength comes from friendship / interpersonal bonds, and that the ability to form strong bonds that cause people to follow you or show you loyalty is more important than being smart. Which is true, actually--it's why so many of us nerds fail to be successful despite being smart, while people of average or lesser intelligence who can form networks of people who believe in them / rely on them are able to succeed. That's why Idiot Hero stories almost always cast the Idiot Hero in the role of a Messiah as well.
>> No. 80506

Nah, brah, it was a slap. Though a rather gentle one, considering this is Hinata we're talking about.

Anyway, lots of people are making comparisons of all kinds without taking into accounts circumstances and characters and why one scene can (or not) be more significant than other.

Is it a bad thing that I don't like that whole "Your power is to bend people to your will with friendship" cliche? The last time I saw it was in One Piece and I thought it was obnoxious when Mihawk credited Luffy. Um NO!!! During the Marineford War it was White Beard and his unified forces who came together to save Ace, it had NOTHING to do with Luffy. I mean more than half of White Beard's pirates don't even know who Luffy is nor give a rats ass.

But I digress, I just find that cliche really stupid.

It was more about him being able to get people to specifically back him up on his personal siege, even when they're foes (Crocodile), just met him (Ivankov/Whitebeard Pirates), or have a complete bias against his gender (Hancock).
>> No. 80528
No dice brah. It was just stupid. Crocodile wanted to keep Luffy alive because he KNEW it would piss off his other enemies. After being in prison for god knows how long a little revenge is in order. He doesn't like Luffy as a person.

Ivankov is loyal to Luffy's father. If he wasn't Dragon's son he wouldn't have done jack outside of saving him, but not lend his troops of Okamas at ID.

And yet they're all still helping him, and even Whitebeard's crew is helping him and protecting him. The kid amasses allies incredibly easily, whether it be by force of personality, circumstance or just allying himself to others' causes. Also, Crocodile wasn't shown to have any hatred for Luffy: he was downright amiable to the kid, while Luffy couldn't stand him.
>> No. 80542
Well yeah being Ace's 'brother' it makes sense they would have stopped him from dying on the battlefield
>> No. 80544
Point is that his biggest strength comes from being able to get people to align themselves to him--even if it's not always because of some special talent of his, and just a matter of circumstance or luck. Naruto and other shounen heroes of the messianic mould do the same thing so as to show how much more powerful a character is when he has a team to back him up.
>> No. 80552
I have a problem when that happens in Naruto, because for me it always feels "forced". Characters flock to him just because he is the main character and Ninja Jesus. In One Piece the main characters stick around Luffy because he has done something to prove they are stronger together (see Robin's rescue mission). Whereas in Naruto only the Konoha ninja have reason to believe in him, cause he "saved" the village, but all those others ninja got shit in trusting him. He isn't a famous ninja, he hasn't made a name for himself in the world, for fuck's sake, he is STILL a genin, you'd think they would give him a field promotion after that whole Pain thing....

Bottom line, when Naruto does the "together we are stronger" shit, it feels very forced and kinda baseless.
>> No. 80566
Naruto is a horrible character, but the writing is trying to make you respect him as Jesus of Konoha.

Sort of like his Dad who is a douchebag that got himself and his wife killed and fucked over is son's life without even taking a minute to think of the alternatives, hell even his wife was coming up with one before he pushed ahead with it.
>> No. 80568
This always annoyed me about Minato. Everyone and their mothers in Konoha treat him as if he was a great Hokage, a total golden boy. But the fucker died young in his career as a leader and he died not because he was outmatched but because he was an irresponsible dead beat loser father idiot.

What really pissed me off is how Kushina herself "bought" his bullshit argument and reasoning for willingly killing himself to leave his son's life to pure luck. I'm no fan of Kushina, but her agreeing with such bullshit just made her look like such a damn fool.

Then we have the Retarded Third who knew Naruto was the 4th's son, but purposely and for no reason kept this all a secret beginning Naruto's life in misery among the town folk. I just can't bring myself to like these characters when the writing is such shit. This is where the blame on Kishimoto rightfully deserves to pile up.
>> No. 80569
I'm having trouble understanding how more people didn't realize Naruto was the 4th's son, they look so similar and Kushina was obviously pregnant wasn't she?
And who raised Naruto as a baby? I've heard people say the 3rd did but the series never makes it seem that way, wouldn't he have a more fatherly relation with Naruto if he had personally raised him from a newborn baby?
>> No. 80570
Yeah the series makes it seem like Naruto "raised himself" which is bullshit because even Gaara who had a terrible and worse time as a Jinchuuriki ended up raised by someone with food and shelter, etc.

I enjoyed the series but the 'deep' sad ending to TTGL felt really tacked-on

Not to mention the movies were kind of lame, they were basically "The anime series but BIGGER!", all flash and no substance obviously but to be honest a fair mount of the flash wasn't even that awesome.
The whole 'tentacle rape' scene with Nia and the Anti-Spiral was kind of fucked-up and needless as well in the movie, I guess they know what the Otaku like though.
>> No. 80732
As someone explained to me, TTGL is an homage to every form of giant robots ever made. It takes the concept of 'super robot' backwards in time, from the modern age through the post-Evangelion ghetto, through the era of real robots and space opera, through pretty much every sub-genre and series that's ever been made, all the way back to the heyday of the superhero robots. And then, in typical Gainax fashion, it takes that concept FURTHER and does Super Robots in its most classical form in the most over-the-top super-exaggerated way it possibly can. Because the genre really isn't dead yet, and you don't have to have depressing shit in your anime to make good TV. Because things can turn out AWESOME and the good guys can still win.

And then right at the end, the show admits that, yeah, when all's said and done you have to come back to reality. As much as it can suck sometimes, not everything can be like it was. The spirit of those early days may live on, but the world today is a different place no matter how much we'd rather it weren't.

It's a love letter to the past and all the history of the genre, but ultimately, they HAD to end it with a "thank you and goodbye".

No you don't understand.

The gurren lagann movie was basically an abridged version of the animated series but the mechs themselves were literally bigger.

Alot of the fights were pretty lame though. Like at the climax of the first film all the Beast Generals baseships combine together and almost as soon as they are through with their combining sequence its destroyed by a somewhat half-hearted combination attack from the heroes.

Everything was larger but much more hollow.

Gurren-hen was lame as hell, but Lagann-hen was pretty damn good.

I'm not sure whether I liked the climactic scene of the original or of the movie better. I guess if I had to make a judgment, the movie was much slicker while the show was more meaningful.

Yeah that's never explained in the story, which is strange considering the sound ninja with the cannon arms got an origin flashback, but the protagonist of the story did not.


Kishimoto and his inability to develop the setting and characters (Example, why didn't Anko, Orochimaru's student bitchslap Sasuke after he got the curse mark.) are the root cause, swap out Naruto with any other character and you will still have the same problems.

Also did anyone ever explain to Naruto that Kakashi sealed Sasuke's curse mark sealed and it really was his choice to go over to the Dark Side?

I've also considered how I could do gloves so that they do the King of Hearts emblem, likely with back-lit LEDs and colored plastic.

Though if they can retrieve all that, what would happen if you united Kurama with his other half.
>> No. 81191

Really, power creep is the big thing. Hashirama should be even stronger than Uchiha Madara. Hiruzen is supposed to be the master of more jutsu than Kakashi. Minato made everyone look like losers and he died before his prime. Yet all three were defeated quite simply and never showed their "true strength"; at least that is what we are supposed to believe.

>what would happen if you united Kurama with his other half

Naruto gets a new powerup. Obviously. Don't you read this manga...?

(Really, the Yin chakra of the Kyuubi is supposedly the "evil" half, and the "good" half was what was sealed into Naruto. That should have made Kurama a nice guy since the beginning of the series, but instead of that he was evil to Naruto from the get-go. Now, BEFORE he was split in two, he should have been evil as fuck, but instead he was the Sage's kawaii chibi fox kit.

So basically backwards of what would make any freaking sense. So when that chakra half arrives, instead of Kurama changing personality, it'll just be a handwaved you-can't-understand-the-true-nature-of-chakra bull that will make Naruto strong enough to stand up to whatever villain is controlling Madara and Obitobi.

Because if you think this is the last arc of the manga, you've gone crazier than Orochimaru at a Boy Scout convention.)

The Uchiha and Sanju clans were enemies and at war with one another. In a war between clans, people you know, people who you hold an attachment to are going to die. You are going to likely loose your friends, family and comrades. So essentially, the more Uchiha clan members loose, the more powerful they become--turning a personal loss for you into a gain for the clan as a whole.

Why is the power of 'wood' made out to be so godlike? It seems kind of arbitrary that the first Leaf Hokage is so invincible that even the most broken Sharingan user cannot beat him. (Was sort of weak when he easily crushed all 5 modern hokage's, its almost beating a dead horse by now but it was certainly another showing of the modern generation being inferior to those that came before. Also that superior genetics is the most important thing)

Yeah screw Sasuke I'm with the Second. We don't need yet another Naruto defending him from punishment.

>> No. 81522
To be fair, it seems when they're "fully" revived, and not just in this sort of wet-behind-the-ears fresh-outta-the-grave revived, they have infinite chakra, which means Madara coulda just spammed his most broken chakra-consuming attacks.
I mean, the story has definitely swayed from its original message of "fight tooth and nail without giving up and maybe you too will someday be a not-loser," but let's get real, when you revive a powerful shinobi, give them as much chakra as they could ever hope to use, and make them immortal, it would be very surprising to see them lose.
I'm sure Guy coulda done the same thing, just pop all 8 gates and go fuckin' crazy.
>> No. 81524
He got a pretty damn good showing- I mean, we got 3 straight pages of damn near everyone in the room shitting themselves in fear.
It's supposed to be a unique element, created by fusing two others. If I had to guess, I'd say it's some kind of exponentially greater yield on the chakra invested- a dragon head made of water costs additional chakra to move around, one made from wood can "grow" outwards largely under its own power and hits way harder to boot.

I always figured the First Hokage was broken in large part because he was the Henrietta Lacks of the naruto world- someone whose body's cells break some fundamental rules.
>> No. 81527

Yeah and then he's gotten totally bitch-stared at by his brother and totally out-done by Oro, which just makes him all style and no substance.
>> No. 81528
>Hashirama is hax

The way I understood it is that the Senju have some kind of natural counter to the Uchiha, and thus their broken Sharingan. Because they are two halves of the original whole, or whatever. We saw that the Kyuubi could be controlled by the Sharingan, and wood-element could subdue the Kyuubi; by the Transitive Property of Shounen Bullshit, this means the wood-element can subdue the Sharingan.

Because, really, NOBODY should ever be able to beat a Mangekyo Sharingan user besides another one. Tsukiyomi is a one-shot, instantaneous, unblockable KO. The only reason Sasuke was able to break out of it with a normal Sharingan is because he's Sasuke and thus not subject to the normal rules. Anyone else, especially with no Sharingan whatsoever, should be killed instantly. And that doesn't even figure in the absolute-defense/offense of Susanoo.

So logically, the only reason Madara didn't instantly kill Hashirama with Tsukiyomi is because he couldn't. The only reason he had to fight hand-to-hand with that giant fan while using the Kyuubi, and not spam Susanoo is because he couldn't. For some reason the hax Mangekyo powers were nullified by Hashirama somehow. Since this is Naruto, I'm guessing using the powers of Magical Genetics.

The fight got retconned and now Madara is using Susanoo.

Well, fuck you then. The first point still stands... So, did everyone just forget about Tsukiyomi... or what?? Because I am QUITE SURE that Itachi stated that one had to be able to use both it and Ameterasu in order to use Susanoo.

Also is it just me or is this review biggest issue with NS:UNS3 not a fault off the game it self?
>> No. 81600
Nope. Just typical idealistic and generic bromance of the lame kind and of course Childhood Promises and Pledges.

It's good that the manga actually explains how rotten and stagnant the ninja society was before the Leaf was founded. Just child soldiers and complete tribalism. Difficult to feel anything when the two centerpieces are so dull though.
>> No. 81608

The child soldiers thing really weirds me the fuck out. Sure, military use of children is a thing, but I have never heard of any real-world society where children this young are pressed into service this regularly. Where single-digit aged children do fight, it's an aberration, not the norm. But in the world of Naruto it's universal and barely even gets commented on. It's just weird, even disregarding the fact that children that small don't have the stature or body mass to stand up in combat.

Yet ANOTHER pair of boys who act as a proxy for Naruto and Sasuke probably would have had delicious shota/yaoi sex if war didn't intervene and force them to fight one another. History repeats, yes we know already.


Ah yes, but this is Naruto, where the further back you go in time, the younger and younger people became ridiculously talented. Kakashi was a jonin at like 10 years old, Itachi was in the anbu at like 7, Madara and Hashirama were probably Kage-level before they learned to walk, and the Sage of Six Paths was clearly born already able to use the Rinnegan perfectly.

Really, jutsu are just magic spells that require some training. It's like being able to play a piece on the piano. Work the right combination of hand-movements and you get a song or a jutsu. Simple.

The reason is because, in modern Naruto, the kids aren't trained seriously in the art of shinobi until they are around 10. Probably back in the day, they started training them when they were four or five years old. This is the same reason why six-year-olds in Korea can play masterful piano concertos while the same kids in America would struggle to play chopsticks.

The kids have much less chakra, of course, due to having smaller bodies, but the jutsu would be equally effective. They probably would just run out of chakra faster. It would be like Sasuke and Kakashi both doing Chidori in the Chuunin Exams arc. Kakashi can do it four times in a day, Sasuke only twice.

To be fair to Madara. While yes, he is being a pants on head moron about the whole thing. Tobirama being a bigoted asspony sure as shit didn't do much to help the situation either.

Tobirama is the only person here whose side I am on. Under less fucktarded circumstances he would be a bigoted asshole, but in the world of Naruto birth is destiny, especially if you're an Uchiha or Senju. And the destiny of an Uchiha is to become a crazy violent asshole with superpowers.

I don't like reaching that conclusion, I absolutely hate it, actually, but the narrative is forcing it onto me. And given that, I frankly can't see where Tobirama is wrong.

Since the hand-intercourse it seems there's been alot more of the crazy shippers bitching about Naruto & Hinata.

It must suck if it goes against your ship but its not like that scene exactly came out of nowhere.
Sakura was the only other horse in that race and since that whole horribly fake-confession then revealing to herself that she's still in love with crazy evil Sasuke when the generic ninja hit on her she's sorta dropped out.

Naruto getting gay-married to/murder-suiciding with Sasuke is still totally plausible tho

Would anyone on +fourchan defend the 'Love/Romance' between Sakura and Sasuke?

I put forth that its a really stupid crush on her part with no serious love between them(she was one of many who had a crush on Sasuke like almost all the other girls except she was the one of the crowd lucky enough to get on his team) and is nonsensical after he went evil and then insane, and constantly leads her to do really stupid things.

But a couple of people are telling me the love between them is really deep and they have a proper romance because Kishi said they do.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
>> No. 81836
You're not going to find any defenders of it here. Or anywhere outside of DeviantArt, likely, it's terrible.

Nobody sane would defend it at this point. It's not just incredibly stupid, it's also really gross - in Kishi's world, girls never get over their first crush and it will be their most important trait for their whole lives!

I don't know what the point of this flashback was? I don't understand what I, as the reader, or Sasuke as a character was supposed to learn here? Mainly because we didn't learn anything.

Madara and the first grew up friends, wanted to stop the war and form a village, became enemies, became friends again, formed said village, became enemies again because Madara is a crazy person, then the first kills Madara. The End.

Why wasted two months on a flashback that didn't tell us anything we didn't already know. In fact, just looking back at it, everything we needed to know was actually discussed in the final fight between Madara and the First. You could have cut out the entire flashback in a flashback and just kept that fight, completely unedited from how it's already told, and we would have gotten the same exact amount of information through just discussion that happens between these two in that fight.

>"Vader was seduced by the dark side of the force"

Thanks, we're done. That's really all the information we need for that plot point. Going back and making a whole story covering something that was just as easily covered in a single sentence would be stupid and overindulgent. Good thing nobody... oh, wait, no.

Seriously though, this single page I've posted, covers absolutely everything we need to know from this flachback... in one fucking page. That's it. Done. Thanks.

>Would anyone on +fourchan defend the 'Love/Romance' between Sakura and Sasuke?

One cannot defend something that does not exist. Regardless of how Sakura feels, Sasuke is not capable of love or any sort of affection at this point in his life. In fact, if he were in any way sexual (which I doubt) it would probably manifest in him going back to his secret base after killing someone and masturbating furiously to the memory of their spilling blood.

Sasuke becomes a good guy again? Somehow, I have my doubts.

Probably, he's faking it (along with Orochimaru) so they can maneuver into a more advantageous position. Basically, use the power of the Hokage to defeat Madara, and then take over the world for themselves. This just becomes a case of "villain joins forces with the hero to defeat a greater villain" thing. I know Karin (with her almighty Uzumaki blood) factors into this. She isn't being kept around for her healing powers, I'll bet.

Either that, or Sasuke actually does get redeemed, by death. Somehow, I just can't (or maybe I refuse to...) believe that this entire clusterfuck is going to end up with a pure-happy-ending asspull — like the whole Nagato-resurrects-all-the-dead-people thing at the end of the Pain arc — where Sasuke gets better, goes back to Konoha, and Team 7 is reunited once again, and everyone is happy and flowers and rainbows and springtime of youth yadda yadda yadda. I think it's more likely that he's going to get his dumb ass killed, which would trigger Naruto to turn Super Kyuubi 4 and suddenly become strong enough to win.

But, probably, the former. As in, villain joins forces with other villain to defeat hero. Because otherwise, look at the alternative as to how the fight would go. In the red corner, we have Obito and Madara and a giant statue-o'-doom. In the blue corner we have THE ENTIRE FUCKING NINJA WORLD, including five current Kage, the second-strongest jinchuuriki, and the main character. We are now adding to that side one of the three sannin, four former hokage, and the second-main-character who is already canonically either the second or third most powerful Uchiha.

I don't care HOW STRONG Madara is or how much "better" he has been made by being resurrected; probably, he cannot defeat even Hashirama on his own. So are we supposed to believe that everyone else is going to have a tough time beating just Obito??? No, no way. This "war" has now become way too unbalanced in the favor of the heroes; the villains are going to get fucking STEAMROLLED as it stands.

Therefore, the only thing that can happen is that Team Sasuke will remain a wild-card.

This week's chapter of Naruto announced that Kishimoto is going to begin publication of a manga called "Mario" starting this June, a mafia-themed manga that he has been wanting to do (and hinting at) for probably a decade.

Does this mean Naruto is about to end? Do mangaka ever split time between two series at the same time, or do they always tend to drop one to start a new project? I'm not sure what the precedent for this is so I cannot say.

Either way, this is big news.

Why would you ever read another Kishimoto project?
>> No. 82374
a. This was already in the works at the beginning of Naruto, when I kinda liked it
b. I assume Naruto has already made Kishimoto a shitload of money, which may free him up from padding out this story unduly with bullshit if he so chooses (and I consider this actually a possibility, as he already had the story in mind years ago)
c. From the two pictures I've seen, it is apparently set in the present and does not appear to be overtly supernatural, so perhaps he will sidestep his unfortunate dedication to the born-with-it ubermensch vs. born-without-it-and-thus-never-able-to-surpass-their-betters normals philosophy.

What can I say, I'm made of optimism.
That said, the moment I see the faintest hint of someone being inherently superior because they were pushed out of the right vagina, I am so outie.
>> No. 82376
>Doesn't this arc have 'final arc' written all over it?

There's a big difference, a BIG DIFFERENCE, between "this is the last arc", and "this series will end in 10 more chapters", which is about how long it is until June. Given how snail-paced Naruto has tended to be lately, I can't imagine that is enough time to end this battle and have anything resembling a satisfying resolution.
