I like her. I really like what we’ve seen of her. The only (boo!) female member of the Seven Swordsmen, pretty much the pipsqueak of the Mist, but also thoroughly flashy and badass. What I also like about her is that she shows off a lot of the traits that previously seemed limited to the male characters like Kisame, Zabuza, Suigetsu. She’s predatory, bloodthirsty and vicious. Unfortunately we don’t really get a chance to see anything more of her, other than knowing that she died young of (yet another) mysterious illness.
All the people I ship romantically with this character
Her and Mei ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
No seriously I’ll expound upon this later I just want you to think about it. Follow it up with her and Kushimaru for some odd couple monster bonding parties.
My non-romantic OTP for this character
Her and the rest of the swordsmen, really. Her dynamics are pretty interesting since the Naruto timeline implies that she was able to usurp Kiba from Raiga without outright killing the guy. I keep picturing her as the largely talented but overconfident rookie everyone else ended up looking after.
Her and Omoi. Some people will be bothered by this but I’m just not into their dynamic as romantic. Best battle buds forever, hell yeah. But romantic? Ehh.
My unpopular opinion about this character
I think just caring about her is unpopular enough, really.
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
MORE ANYTHING. SEEING HOW SHE LIVED, HOW SHE DIED, HOW SHE ACQUIRED KIBA ESPECIALLY. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH.
[[ Here’s the thing I was drawing the other night and messed up on because Ameyuri SO SMOL. So the height is off because I started Ameyuri first, but I still fucked up Kasumi completely but I could care less because looK AT MY SMOL DEADLY SWORDSMAN ]]
