Naruto 685 SASUSAKU FEELS ASDFGHJKLLASDFGHJKL@#!FFFFFF

GUYS.

GUYS.

GUUUUUYS.

I CAN’T-

LIKE HOW DO I-

I CAN’T EVEN-

THIS POST IS GONNA BE MOSTLY IN CAPS BECAUSE ANYTHING ELSE WON’T TRANSLATE THE INTENSITY OF MY FEELS TO YOU GUYS.

OMFG. LIKE OMFG. ASDFGHJKL.

FINALLY KISHI GAVE US THE MOMENT WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR. THE MOMENT WE DESPAIRED THAT WE’D NEVER SEE.

HECK I WAS ALMOST READY TO THROW IN THE SASUSAKU TOWEL.

HOW COULD I BE SO STUPID.

HOW COULD I LACK THE FAITH AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

SASUKE AND SAKURA, MY BABIES, PLZ FORGIVE ME.

So before I go in depth into each panel, I’ll set the context!

I woke up this morning, arrived at work late, was having an exhausting and crappy day, when I decided to check what the progress of next chapter was AND… LO AND BEHOLD AN EARLY UPDATE.

I loaded the manga page and was practically punching my phone in my eagerness to read the chapter and the WIFI WAS BEING SO SLOW THE PAGES WERE LOADING LIKE ASDFGHJKL. I WAS GETTING SO FRUSTRATED.

AND THEN…I SAW IT.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I HAVE EVER SEEN EVER IN THE HISTORY OF BEAUTIFUL THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN.

I DON’T EVEN CARE THAT THAT DIDN’T MAKE SENSE. I DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING. BECAUSE SASUKE IS HOLDING SAKURA BIATCHES.

SASUKE UCHIHA, MR-NOBODY-GETS-CLOSE-TO-ME-KEEP-YOUR-HANDS-OFF-MY-FABULOUS-UCHIHA-ASS-IS WILLINGLY HOLDING HARUNO SAKURA.

NOT JUST HOLDING HER UPRIGHT, BUT REALLY HOLDING HER AGAINST HIM.

HE’S LETTING HER LEAN INTO HIM. HE’S KEPT HIS ARM FIRMLY IN PLACE AND HIS CHEEK IS PRACTICALLY AGAINST HER HAIR.

AAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

TO THE ANTI SS-ERS WHO SAY “OH HE JUST HAPPENED TO LAND THERE SO OBVIOUSLY HE COULD CATCH HER, IT’S NOTHING BLAHBLAH”, BULLSH*T. DON’T YOU DARE TRY TO TAKE THIS OUT OF CONTEXT OR TAKE THIS MOMENT AWAY FROM US WHEN WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR A SASUKE>SAKURA MOMENT SINCE THE DINOSAUR AGE.

I CAN’T GET OVER THE FACT HE IS STILL SUPPORTING HER AND HOLDING HER AGAINST HIM.

OH KISHI. KISHI, YOU SLY DOG YOU.

AND JUST IN TIME FOR SASUSAKU MONTH. WHICH I REALLY WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO EVERY YEAR BUT NO TIME DAMN IT.

Anyway, safe to say I was glowing after lunchtime and in such a good mood, it’s quite pathetic. It’s quite pathetic just how attached I am to these two, how badly I want them to be together. I mean, they aren’t real, but kudos to Kishi for making me care so much.

Plus writing Quietus has driven my SS fangirl to a level of hardcore that’s out of this world.

I STARED AT THIS PANEL FOR EVER. I’M STILL STARING AT IT.

IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL. UWAAAAAH.

LOOK AT SASUKE’S ALMOST TENDER/CONCERNED EXPRESSION. HE’S GAZING AT HER SO INTENSELY. LOOK HOW HE’S HOLDING HER SO GENTLY. LOOK AT HOW HER HEAD IS PRACTICALLY ON HIS SHOULDER.

SASUKE IS ACTIVELY INITIATING CONTACT. PART 2 SASUKE. PART 2 SASUKE WHO NEVER LETS ANYONE CLOSE.

IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL. LOOK HOW RIGHT THEY LOOK TOGETHER. HOW PERFECT. ASDFGHJKL.

BEST. PANEL. EVER.

ANYWAY, ONTO PANEL FAILANALYSIS.

Sakura taking control. Giving the MIDDLE FINGER to all those who doubted her and bring her down over and over major Quietus inspiration this chapter.

EVERYTHING I’VE GOT. THE CHAPTER IS CALLED THIS, IT’S ALL ABOUT SAKURA. SAKURA HAVING THE POWER AND GIVING EVERYTHING SHE HAS TO SAVE THE LOVE OF HER LIFE. HELL YES.

I was like O DAYUM at this point… ACID! Sakura SAVES Obitio and throws her jacket off sexy little vixen. LOVE HER NEW LOOK. COUGH IT COORDINATES WITH SASUKE.

TAKE OF YO CLOTHES.

LOL OBITO SRSLY, YOU SUCH A NOOB. Sakura doesn’t take REST BREAKS. She’s so determined to press on. I’m SO PROUD OF HER MY BABY.

OBITO BE LIKE: HEY LITTLE GURL U WANNA BREAK?

SAKURA BE LIKE: LOL NO GTFO AND MAN UP

KISHI DAMN YOU. YOU EXECUTED HER MAGNIFICENT MOMENT PERFECTLY.

I thought Obito’s concern was kind of sweet, I still dislike him though.

THEN:

LOOK AT HIS FACE WHEN HE HEARS HER. LOOK AT HOW HE TURNS IMMEDIATELY TOWARDS HER VOICE. AT THIS POINT I AM FLAILING LIKE A FISH.

SASUKE: S…Sakura…?! AM I HALLUCINATING?!

And Sakura’s devotion is really obvious next panel: Look at her EYES! LOOK HOW HARD SHE IS PUSHING HERSELF, JUST FOR THAT DAMNED UCHIHA BRAT! HE REALLY SHOULD BE DAMNED GROVELLING AT HER FEET! WHAT A WOMAN!

LOOK AT HER DESPERATION! SURELY SASUKE FINALLY SEES AND ACKNOWLEDGES JUST HOW MUCH SHE IS WILLING TO DO, HOW SHE’S WILLING TO THROW HER LIFE AWAY, JUST FOR HIS UNGRATEFUL ASS!

And here my heart was totally POUNDING as the portal got smaller, but NO, SAKURA AINT HAVING NONE OF THAT. LIKE A BOSS SHE GOES APE CRAZY ON HER FINAL CHAKRA RESERVES AND PUMPS THAT BIT EXTRA NEEDED TO KEEP THE PORTAL OPEN A TINY BIT LONGER. FOR JUST A SECOND, IT GETS LARGER AGAIN.

AND GUESS WHO NEEDS ONLY A SECOND EXTRA TO CLOSE THE GAP?!

THIS PANEL WAS HEARTBREAKING. SAKURA THINKING SHE HAD FAILED AGAIN. AT THIS POINT I WANTED TO KILL KISHI.

BUT THEN I WANTED TO KISS HIM BECAUSE NEXT:

BEAUTIFUL. SOB. SOB. SOOOOOOOB.

I think the power in this is the SILENCE between them. The EYE CONTACT smex that happens next panel. He’s so silent, right by her side, holding her up. And LOOKING AT HER. REALLY LOOKING AT HER.

ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SHE ISN’T AS USELESS AS HE THOUGHT.

EATING HIS EARLIER WORDS ABOUT HER BEING NO USE AND REMAINING BY HER SIDE. SHOWING HER HE CARES BY SUPPORTING HER.

ACKNOWLEDGING THAT THERE REALLY IS NO OTHER GIRL FOR HIM WHO WOULD BE THIS DEVOTED AND LOYAL DON’T TELL ME MY SHIPPER HEART IS OVER-REACTING.

THAT GLANCE BETWEEN THEM.

IT’S LIKE SHE IS SAYING: “SASUKE-KUN… I…” STILL LOVE YOU YOU BASTARD.

AND SASUKE IS SAYING: “… I KNOW. I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN.”

Or… Sakura: Useless, huh…?

Sasuke: … I suck. I admit I was wrong. You’re so hot, Sakura. Damn, you fly.

He really is seeing her here. And do you know what I LOVE?! Naruto isn’t there to ruin the moment. Next chapter, with just Obito there, there MUST be more interaction between them. PLEASE KISHI. YOU CAN’T THROW THIS CHANCE AWAY.

SASUKE IS STILL HOLDING HER AS HE EXPLAINS HOW HE GOT THERE TO OBITO. THAT’S SO SWEET. ASDFGHJKL. HE’S JUST BETRAYING HIMSELF THROUGH HIS ACTIONS.

I BET OBITO IS GONNA BE REMINDED OF RIN AND NOTICE SOMETHING.

Yes, Sasuke. HOLD HER TO YOU. HOLD YOUR WOMAN.

I’m so doing a tribute to this next chapter in Quietus.

AND THE ICING ON THE CAKE? SASUKE THANKING SAKURA AND OBITO, TOO, BUT HE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP THE PORTAL OPEN IF NOT FOR SAKURATHE QUEEN!

DAAAAAAWWW.

BRING ON NEXT WEEK’S CHAPTER. AND COLOUR, TOO?! PLEASE HAVE A PANEL OF SASUKE HOLDING HIS WIFEY IN COLOUR! CAN’T WAIT!

TO ALL MY FELLOW SASUSAKU FANS… TODAY IS A GOOD DAY AND I LOVE YOU ALL.

AND IMMA DO A NOD TO THIS SCENE OF UTTER BEAUTY IN QUIETUS NEXT CHAPTER.

CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS SCENE ANIMATED TOO.

I’M SO HAPPY.
