ch.198

anonymous asked:

Hi! I don't really watch the naruto anime but I do follow the manga. Can I ask for a list of SasuSaku episodes? Or at least where Sakura or Sasuke is the focus? Thank you very much!

There are two anime series, Naruto Original, and Naruto Shippuden. This is hard to answer because anime episodes often cover 2-3 chapters at a time, and the SasuSaku moments are scattered all over the place. Kishi’s art is better anyway. So I’ll focus only on the most important.

I made a list of SasuSaku manga moments for part I on this post, in which I believe I haven’t missed anything up to the time skip. Sadly, I didn’t get around yet to finish Part II, but it’s coming.

Here’s a short chapter to episode list:

There are some sweet OVAs and fillers, but as they’re not canon, they’re akin to fanfiction, if you’re interested.
