A rare Kankuro with no face paint AND brotherly bonding featuring confused , slightly pleased, and annoyed Gaara?
I just….Gaara has meant an awful lot to me over the years and I am beyond happy that he got a great life and happiness and his siblings are so good to him now
HE’S NOT LONELY AND SAD ANYMORE, HE SMILES NOW, HE’S CARED ABOUT AND HE’S HAPPY
I freaking cried when Gaara called Naruto his friend
Like these boys get to me , sweet heaven . NARUTO CARED ABOUT GAARA SO MUCH AND ALWAYS KEPT CARING AND IT BREAKS MY HEART IN A GREAT WAY
like oh, my sand babies. I loved Gaara from the start, his outfit, his attitude, his look!
AND HIS VOICE
THANK THE LORD FOR LIAM O’ BRIEN
To be honest I might NOT have kept watching Naruto if Gaara hadn’t come along…. Sure, Shikamaru and Kiba and Neji had my attention and FREAKING SASUKE, but I was starting to lose interest
But then Gaara came into it. Another Jinchuriki , another child with a demon , like Naruto. MAN WAS I HOOKED
And boy was he worth it ! I LOVE this character, he goes through so much and he grows greatly as a character and I adore his friendships and bonds with people , Gaara is so special and great and cool!
I have wept for him , and I still do when I reminisce about his story. Gaara sends an important message to survivors of child abuse and bullying - you can still be anything you dream of , people will still care for you even if some treat you poorly .
Gaara has done bad things in his past but he overcame them ! And he’s grown from it , and that is such an important message !
Your past does NOT define you!
