I love SasuSaku but the immense hate it still gets (even after nearly 3 years of the end of the manga) makes me sad.
It shouldn’t anon. Because the only reason why it’s so hated is not because antis actually think badly of the ship itself; but because it gets in the way of every single platonic(or nonexistent) relationship that people saw as/or wanted for it to be romantic. sasusaku pretty much gets in the way of: ns/sk/sns/sisk/ks/sh/sosk/ssio/is/ssi/ etc(its an endless list anon lol). But anyways, the only reason why i’m so sure that is out of jealousy is because even tho they say they hate it, bitches still find themselves complementing it/drawing it/gifing it/ “at times”. I would at least understand “reblogging it” because that only takes a few seconds and you really can just reblog for art admiration(unless its canon stuff then i’ll stop there for “rebloging it”); but “drawing and gifing and graphing it out”? That, now that, i do not and can not understand. Who wastes their time to detail a beautiful work solely for the sake of their notp? If they really felt like it was/is such a horrible “abusive ship”(like they so much like to say) they wouldn’t even be doing this to begin with. But they do it anyway. And why? Because they know it’s not horrible and they don’t really think or mean all those horrible things they say about it. But they hate the idea of them having everything their otp doesn’t have. With nh anti ss fans now that’s a different story. They are pretty much a mixture of pettiness and envy. Pettiness; because they get all cocky over a filler movie not intended or written by kishi and that he himself said that you “don’t need to read the manga” to watch the movie(*cough* sounds like filler to me). And envy because even tho they already have so much fanservice thanks to the same studio that spites sasuke & sakura, they are still unsatisfied and want to fight us about :“who the heroine is” , “who has more kids”, “who the better husband is”, “what kid is more happy” etc. Its and endless cycle of “im better than you and you should agree with me”. It must really suck to have the manga ending like this:
instead of ending with the suppose main paring lol.
Anyways the other haters i can think of are the ones that “only watch the anime” and confuse canon sasusaku for sp’s version of sasusaku. visit my #anti sp tag to see what i mean. I’m not saying that there are no people who earnestly hate what i love. And that it’s impossible to simply hate ss. I’m just saying that majority hate them for the stupidest reasons: fillers/pettiness/jealousy/envy/ and minority ever give good reasons to hate on them. Despite this we still remain as popular as ever anon, so don’t fret
Out of all the possible and possible couples of fandoms(not just anime fandoms; but fandoms in general), SasuSaku made it to 14 as the most reblogged/active ship of tumblr. So you should pay antis no mind anon because as long as we have such a huge and passive fanbase that’s all that really matters ^^
