Love the Sara/Sasu/Saku analysis--you hit the nail on the head. Very smart and nicely written. I personally don't think Karin is the mother of Sarada. Throughout the entire manga everything points to sasusaku and not sasukarin. It doesn't make sense to me that Kishi would just flip everything around like that. Your thoughts?
Thank you very much! I loved writing that analysis; trying to get into the author’s head is fun.
Karin is not Sarada’s mother 100%. Anyone who has average reading comprehension skills knows that.
Uchihas value love above all else. Sakura’s dedication, passion, loyalty, tenderness and selfless love are what Sasuke needs AND, most importantly, WANTS. This is obviously what Kishimoto’s thinking, too.
Maybe the who-are-my-parents-plot is Kishimoto’s way to get to the glasses plot faster, because I remember one of the voice actors saying that there is a specific reason why Sarada has to wear glasses. And it has nothing to do with Karin, of course. But Kishi is Kishi, and Kishi loves red herrings. And it’s probably also a way to shut those people up who don’t believe in Sasuke’s and Sakura’s relationship, meaning that we will have some heart-warming SSS moments at the end of the manga. This is all building up to it, because this is SasuSaku’s and Sarada’s miniseries, just like The Last was NaruHina’s movie. And I’m glad that this manga is dedicated to the Uchiha family, because it’s Kishimoto’s chance to write SS how he has always envisioned them, because they are HIS creations. No one else could write SS “better”, so that’s why I can’t wait to see what Kishimoto has in store for these two amazing characters.
IMO Kishimoto is just an adorable troll who loves to write misleading drama for his fav dramaqueen Sasque so that people buy his new manga. I’m sure he has an interesting plot in mind though. (Almost) everything he writes serves a purpose. A bigger or a smaller one, we’ll just have to wait and see. And trust me, WE will be the winners in the end. There will be NO doubts anymore regarding Sasuke’s love for Sakura or Sarada’s parentage. E.V.E.R.
