Have you read that post made by saisai-chan about sasuke and vegeta, don't you think that some of the points she made are true, regardless of shipping goggles, vegeta has always been there for his family, he went bat shit crazy when bulma got hurt, he was willing to sacrifice himself for the safety of their child, he is a very good husband and father, sasuke is never really there for sarada or sakura, vegeta was willing to sacrifice himself for his friends and family, it is something
con. something sasuke hasn’t done in a very very long time, she made many other very valid points in her points, I don’t think you can really refute them
No I haven’t read that post, but their situations can’t be compared anyway. Sasuke’s a busy person, he can’t be “there” in the village 24/7. He’s their main man for reconnaissance, which requires him to leave. Vegeta doesn’t have a job; all he does is train, so yeah, of course he’s always there. It can’t be compared. That doesn’t mean that Sasuke cares about his family any less. It was reiterated time and again that he partook the mission for the sake of his family, and now that it’s done, he can start being “there” for them more frequently. But there wasn’t much he could do about not being there previously.
You don’t think Sasuke ever got angry when Sakura got injured? He broke Zaku’s arms when he boasted how he had harmed Sakura, and had to have Sakura herself stop him from going any further:
And in Gaiden, he also rushed through Orochimaru’s hideout because he wanted to locate Sakura as quickly as possible, and then proceeded to break every bone in Shin’s body for kidnapping his wife:
Is that not showing concern for her?
Sasuke’s never been in a position to knowingly sacrifice his life for the sake of his family, so again, that’s an unfair comparison. However, what what he did do was to be willing to essentially sacrifice himself in order to give Naruto enough time to escape from Gaara with Sakura:
He also had his body “just move by itself” in order to protect Sarada from Shin’s blades in Gaiden:
Is that not demonstrating how he’s also willing to sacrifice himself for the safety of his wife and child? I’d say that’s a very explicit example. He also ignored the village’s please for help, but when he found out that it was Sakura in danger, he rushed back. Yet another example.
You’re saying how Vegeta was willing to sacrifice himself for his friends and family, and how it’s something that Sasuke hasn’t done in a long time, but that’s not true at all. So many people don’t understand that Sasuke’s mission was the very definition of self sacrifice for the sake of those he cherished. He took on the mission by himself, for the sake of his friends, family and all the shinobi villages, so that they may continue to live their lives in peace, while he struggled alone, chasing a threat several times more powerful than himself, and opted to have them all kept in the dark on his activities. And why? Because he wanted them to continue living blissful, happy lives:
And you don’t think Sasuke has willingly sacrificed himself for the sake of his family and friends in a very long time? Never mind every other point I’ve made in this response which showed how dear Sasuke holds his family; but the very fact that Sasuke’s mission continues to be misconstrued as nothing but an example of his absence and “not being there” for his family is irritating. The lack of contact was a mistake on his part, but the incentives were full of self sacrifice. I can’t believe how this just flew over the heads of so many people.
