Okay. Many of us wrote about new Naruto episode (484), and did really great job! But
want add one little thing.
At first, lets look at Hinata and notice her look type. She has a round, wide
face, not narrow chin. Outer corners of her eyes are pretty lowered.
But now she is magically changed into absolutely different person. And guess like who she looks like now?
Right, she looks more like Sasuke. Her eyes are narrow, skin is paler, hair is darker, and her face is thin and long. Even their facial expression are looks similar now….
What is it? I know, puberty changes a lot in people, but it can’t change your eye form and face shape.
Why??? Like its not enough for them to steal a moments, colors and techniques from NaruSasu to NaruHina sake, they also want to steal Sasuke`s look for Hinata to make her more opposite of Naruto (and opposites, as you know, complement each other.)
What is next, Hinata will awake her sharingan? Ugh.
So the Heaven’s Feel manga finally adapted this scene, which, contrary to what some may think, was actually in the VN! However the VN was still trying to preserve the plot twist of Sakura being involved with magical affairs, so the identity of who zouken was speaking to was obscured at first. I really like how the manga has completely given up on trying to preserve that twist (bc really fate zero and the 10+ years since the original VN have pretty much given it away to all but the newest of viewers) and are giving us tons of sakura’s point of view in place of that.
I really love how the manga has given zouken this new look, its fantastic. Look at this huge wet mass of disgusting worm flesh! It’s disgusting, its horrifying, it provokes an instinctual reaction of KILL IT WITH FIRE. It really emphasizes zouken’s inhumanity. At one point Kotomine compares him to a vampire, and in this form you can really see that, especially how in the darkness he’s a huge dark mass looming over whoever he’s speaking to, with only his glowing eyes visible in the dark. You really get the sense of this being a monster out of a horror film.
Whats great about this gross look is that it not only ups zouken’s villain presence quite a bit imo, but it really shows us what kind of hell Sakura has been enduring the last 11 years, living under the control of this creature. Her abuser is literally a monster! Which makes the courage she shows disobeying him all the more impressive. She knows better then anyone what kind of punishment she’d get for defying him, but she does it anyway, even as she trembles and clutches her shaking hands. Sakura is so strong you guys.
if ufotable doesn’t use this look for zouken in the movies, or at least for this scene, im gonna be disappointed tbh.
