Considering the story has had almost NO romantic development in it?
Yes, I was surprised. One character showing romantic interest in another without reciprocation, does not a romance make. Naruto didnt even acknowledge her feelings THE ENTIRE series. For fuck's sake, the entire anime so far, with all it's fillers and extra development? Still, no real romantic or relationship development.
You've GOT to be kidding me if you seriously think Naruto and Hinata's romance was developed in any fashion. In fact, Naruto losing relationship/attraction for Sakura had more development than anything.
>>118185391 Keep in mind that this is a Shounen manga. There shouldn't be any obvious romantic moments showing all over the place. From all the little hints we got, I really felt it is going to be Hinata end game. Especially after the "I hate people who lie to themselves"
I'm kind of surprised Ninja Jesus didn't die, to be honest.
With the ridiculous amount of focus Sasuke got I thought Naruto was going to die post-timeskip and pass the baton of becoming hokage to him. I figured that would be the only way of redeeming him, but I guess saying "sorry" really does cut it sometimes? I stopped reading Naruto years ago.
>>118185391 What narusaku moments happened which support the pair? Sakura was always for sasukes dick. Naruto had a small crush on her kind of but once hinata confessed, marihuana was basically locked.
>>118185486 >Keep in mind that this is a Shounen manga. There shouldn't be any obvious romantic moments showing all over the place. Bleach, Kenshin, Trigun, FMP, FMA all are chock-full of obvious romantic moments.
>>118185248 >How were people surprised Hinata/Naruto became end game?
Like most shonen, I figured it'd just have an open ending rather than picking a girl and such. Story may be pretty shit, but at least he stuck to his guns and actually picked the couple and made a fucking movie about how they came to be a couple in the first place.
>>118185391 Anon was right on the money. Also the story of the manga was about camaraderie and magical ninjas shooting fireballs at each other. The focus was simple acknowledgement. If romantic shit were to exist it was always going to be barebones. Compared to what could have happened (open end or going the DBZ route) the manga's romantic plot found a fair amount of closure AND a separate story where the romantic development of the MC was touched upon as its own thing.
>>118185705 If you can point to even just ONE general for another popular anime that doesn't have shit posts and spam by people who hate the anime, as well as some shitty on topic posts, I will cede you the point. Until then, go fuck yourself. You fuck tolerate One Piece generals even though they're even shittier than naruto generals.
>>118185906 Meh , One Piece fags like to pretend their shit dont stink even though it's the same cookie cutter shounen shit with a stupid main character screaming his attacks with super saiyan variants and magic ki in some form.
Whatever. OP might be alright, but that art, man. I'd rather not.
I still can't believe Kishi dedicated the last chapter of a 700 chapter long story to solely shipping. No development, no significant dialouge. Just who porked who at the end. The end is just fodder for crappy fanfiction.
>>118185895 >The anime fillers made it clear that months if, not straight up a year or so took place after Jiraiya's return. How so? Do they say it outright or what? Legit curious now. The way I recall >he gets back >shit Gaara's been kidnapped >3 days there, a couple on the mission proper 3 back >10 days later on that bridge Nardo and Orochimaru fight >Sausage kills him and assembles a team tracks down Deidara and has his fight with Itachi: let's be generous and give this a month altogether >meanwhile Nardo gets a crow stuffed down his throat and trains his wind shit, Asuma gets killed and Hidan and Kakuzu are finished off by the fruits of the wind shit >Itachi's dead, Tobi recruits Sausage and sends him after Bee >Jiraiya infiltrates Steampunk Town and gets his ass wrecked >Nardo grieves and goes off to learn Sage Mode: let's give these another month >Pain invades, Nardo saves the day and the heap of wreckage that was once the village >Sausage crashes the Kage meetup and kills Danzo >retarded fight by the bridge: these get a week, maybe? >war starts, Bee and Nrdo are sent off to that Turtle Island to train: two weeks journey included >first day of fighting begins >they break out once they know shit's going down and join by night >second day sees them fight the six Jinchuuriki, Nardo learns the names of the beasts, befriends Kurama, and fights Obito while the Kage take on Madara >Sausage and resurrected Itachi take down Kabuto and his zombie army >Madara wrecks the Kage, Nardo and Bee break Tobi's mask to reveal him as Obito who gets Madara as backup, they combine the Juubi >still more fighting, the fodder shows up to be useless and to be defended, useless teamwork >Sausage resurrects Orochimaru and takes a trip to the never-mentioned Uzumake temple outside of Konoha where they unseal the Hokages, then join the fight
So what the fuck was Sasuke doing in the last chapter? Was he on a mission or something? I really want to know how he assimilated back into the village. He wasn't at Naruto's wedding for fucks sake. I want to see him spill sphaghetti trying to socialize. "H-hey guys, I know I helped a global terrorist group and betrayed the village but I hope we can put that behind us. Danzou was a dick anyway a-am I right?" Was what happened to the Uchihas became told?
>>118186330 >fucking hell this was all in one day >they take the beasts back, more fighting, happy birthday Naruto, SoP powerups for the Mary Sues >next day the war is over Sausage goes full edge and fights Nardo I'm overestimating and giving them extra time at every turn even beyond what I've specifically mentioned and I see no fuking way this shit would take more than 4 months.
>>118186396 It's not really stated he lost anything, really. We do know that to replace Kakshi's eye he had to take some other, likely useless body part of his and turn it into an eye for him. Basically it is stem cell transformation or some shit. A whole arm might just be too much for that sort of thing. Also Sasuke should technically be able to grow a whole new lazer-shooting robot arm for himself.
>>118186443 >I don't see how anyone beats Naruto or Sauce now.
Asspulls, as always. But I doubt the following series will focus on battles, because I certainly hope not. The SOL shit needs to happen, after how long that Ninja War took, I'm done with the Nardo battles.
>>118186443 You know, I kinda hope nardos ninja jesusness makes him have an incredibly long lifespan or something like that. I know it wouldn't happen, but it would be fucking bananas of Kishi busted out the ol' "what happens if you see yourself live long enough to become the villain" shenanigans.
