I know we all like to say SP’s treatment of it’s characters isn’t surprising any more, but it’ll never stop blowing my mind how this company continues to do itself absolutely no favors just because… well at this point, I honestly don’t know. I gathered that there are people over there that don’t like to handle Sasuke, though for the life of me I can’t figure out why. It’s obvious they don’t get Sakura on any type of level (they stick her in a tsundere mold and call it a day), and people there have some grudge against her for not being into the main character so they take it out on her in the pettiest of ways. Both characters are either handled poorly and not at all.
And they’re two of Naruto’s most popular characters.
It’s clear they know this. In the Last they marketed the hell out of Sasuke, this newest episode they poked at Sasusaku in the preview like they do when they want to catch the audience’s attention. And they fail to deliver. They tease, they grab at the audience who are too naive or don’t pay attention to their patterns, and then pull the rug out from under them, and this has been something they’ve done for years now. I guess they don’t care if they piss off a big portion of their fanbase because they continue to bring in money, but holy shit would they have bigger numbers if they would just cater to their most popular hetero ship in the series.
