naruto's ending

What I really think about Sakura

I decided to write down my thoughts… they are half serious and half…not.

Who found my older post, also drawings, probably understood that I’m a NaruHina shipper and I’m pro SasuKarin (however i draw everything ahah). But I want to share the truth about what I think of Sakura and about Naruto’s ending.

At the beginning I didn’t liked Sakura, it was the opposite! I was immediately enchanted by her looks (well she is the only pink haired pg with shiny green eyes) because I always loved the girly color pink. She was perfect to me: pink long hair contrasted with green eyes dressed in red. I also found her personality really cool because I loved when she got angry and punched everyone.

But little by little my opinion changed.

It wasn’t her fault but Kishimoto who grew up her.

Most of the people were surprised when in the chunin exams she cut her hair to save her team. It was a important moment… but it had an horrible hidden message: a feminine kunoichi can’t be also strong. It was more than one time told in the manga. Even Ino copied Sakura but also here all was hidden building a plot to explain it….

I never accepted that… it would have been more cool and honest if Sakura, going bersek, told something like “well, I’m just like this I love caring of myself and you’re just jelous of it shannaro!”. Maybe it is a little trashy but fuck it I would have loved her…

Then things got even worse: she couldn’t beat Ino, he got almost killed by Gaara for protecting Sasuke, she was intended to betray Konoha just to follow him who never cared of her but she was egoist also because she always wanted to change the person she “loved”… she stressed Naruto beging him to save Sasuke for her…

This is a focal point.

That poor blonde guy always loved her… really. Ok I respect Hinata for her kind soul but often even if there is someone caring for us this doesn’t mean that we have to fall in love with him/her. Naruto is always been honest and she loved Sakura for who she was even knowing that she had eyes only for Sasuke… he accepted that from the beginning to the end. He suffered in silence.

But what I didn’t really understand is: if Sakura was fixed only with Sasuke why give the readers hints that she loved Naruto instead? Yamato and Sai tried to help Sakura admitting it. But then there is that horrible chapter when Sai literally told her “wake up you silly chick Naruto LOVES YOU (and you love him) the guy you “love” is a freaking psyco that is going to kill everyone so we’re going to kill him first but Naruto probably doesn’t want it”. So God Kishimoto whispered her “lie to Naruto tell him you love him and say to him to forget Sasuke… and then go to kill the last Uchiha betraying everyone and risking your life again poisoning that poor fox guy”. This also a thing I don’t understand… Sakura can be not mature but she isn’t weak! God she can’t destroy all with a finger, save her and other lives (but not Neji’s because if not Hinata could’t approach definitely Naruto…) and she has a inner talent for genjutsu. So why she has always the need to be saved? Where is the logic on this?

Ok if you read all this you’re thinking “well why do you ship NaruHina?”.

The fact is that I simply accepted that at the end Naruto choose her. However, i would really liked if Sakura accepted her true feelings and stayed with Naruto.

It would have been the coolest thing when in the end, when she was healing both Naruto and Sasuke, when Sasuke apologise to her she said something like “the one who has to say sorry is me. I always complicated things without helping. Sasuke, I understand now. I’m really annoying. It’s hard to deal with someone so stubborn like me. But now i understand what how I really feel like. This is not a lie anymore… Naruto”.

Awwww, Kishimoto why you didn’t do this?

I’ll write only a few things more… “WHY”?.

WHY NARUTO WOULD BE MORE HAPPY WITH SAKURA?

- She was his first love and even if I loved The Last movie I disagree with Sakura when she tells Naruto that his feeling for her were false; again she lied to herself…

- Sakura is very similar to Kushina and even Minato sees this;

- She spent more time with Naruto than Hinata so she can understand him better;

- Sakura can look him in the eyes without fainting (lol).

WHY NARUTO CHOOSE HINATA?

- Because Neji died to make them canon…

- Because there is a NaruHina movie that is canon…

- Because Kishimoto loves Hinata and also his staff do

- Because Hinata almost died for him… but Sakura did this before in a different way

- Because Hinata is stalkers-Hime

- Because any other things other than her big breast (lol)

WHY SAKURA AND SASUKE ENDED UP TOGETHER?

- Fandom.

- Platonic love.

- Reborn of the Uchiha clan even if you don’t know if Sasuke betrayed Sakura

WHY SASUKE AND KARIN ARE MORE COMPATIBLE?

- Sexyness.

- Uchiha + Uzumaki is the perfect combination

- Painful past

- Twisted minds

- Tomatoes,

WHY NARUTO AND SASUKE DIDN’T JOINED A GAY PRIDE?

- Because this is a shounen viril manga (like Haku)

- Because they are the reincarnation of two brothers. Oh well fuck this

- Because two males can’t do sons

- Because this manga it’s a total lie

And finally…

WHY SASUKE AND HINATA ARE TOTAL STRANGERS WHEN…

- Hinata is beautiful and quiet like Mikoto

- They have similar colors

- Two blue blood families

- Sharingan + Byakugan= Kaguya

- Ah ok they also somehow kinsmans

- I don’t have other reasons lol

That’s all! I just say a last thing: all the ships are beautiful. This is what makes them interesting and stimulating! So let’s respect each other it’s not bad to have different ideas.

What got you into shipping NaruSaku? :)

This is going to be shorter than everything I really want to write because I don’t want to repeat too much of what I’ve said in the past. When I first got introduced to the series in 2005, I was totally hooked on the style and overall concept of the show. Naruto was my very first fictional crush, and Sakura was the most aesthetically pleasing person I’d ever seen. She mirrored my personality so much that it was natural I’d be drawn to her. When it was revealed that Naruto liked her, I was ecstatic. My 7-year-old brain thought they would make the cutest couple (although I also thought she and Lee would’ve also been adorable as heck but, that’s another story), although Sakura’s fixation on the broody dude in the corner was irritating at the same time, along with Hinata’s annoyingly shy demeanor around Naruto. So it was a see-saw of emotion for me for a while.

I always imagined that Episode 32: Sakura Blossoms - aka the episode that changed my entire life - would have been the perfect transition for Sakura to shift from being the girl that kept her hair long to attract the attention of a childhood crush, to the girl who, just like cutting her hair, would cut away the underlying infatuation she possessed for a guy who didn’t treat her as anything more than a comrade for nearly the entire time they were a team. I think she would have truly blossomed if she got over him completely, and it would have been SO amazing if it were Naruto who had woken up, seen Sakura that badly injured by the Sound Ninja, and had the Kyuubi partially awaken due to anger at seeing his beloved hurt. Agh, the pain. 

But anyway, back to the main point. Naruto and Sakura are each outstanding characters with amazing qualities that set them apart from everyone else, hence why they’re the main hero and heroine of the series. But put them together, and you have something so beautiful that it’s like… a piece of your favorite dessert, or the first sip of hot tea, or even just the sunshine finally streaming across your face in the middle of a particularly cold afternoon. It’s relief. It feels good - pure, wholesome (not as much as MinaKushi, of course), and the most ideal endgame that so many people had hoped for because it just makes sense. Not only because they’re the main characters, but because they’ve been through so much together, whether it be the manga, anime, etc. I mean - LOOK AT THIS:

I looked over this scene more than once, and it always got me excited how Sakura is always front and center in Naruto’s vision. You can claim this isn’t canon, but let’s call a spade a spade. His parents’ chakras are embedded into his being, and so knowing that he deeply loves this girl, they push him closer to her, firstly, and towards all the other villagers that he wants so much to protect. And what’s not to love? Sakura is one of the best people anyone could have the honor of knowing. I’m sure both Minato and especially Kushina are aware of this, too, since Sakura resembles her in a lot of different ways.

Now you ask, just how exactly is Sakura so similar to Kushina?

Is it her mannerisms and overall attitude?

Is it the fact that a rather prominent part of her appearance was the catalyst to the development of her character - a rebirth of her personality, into someone she wasn’t before?

Or her hotheadedness and tendency to resort to (near) violence?

↳ But it’s only okay because Kushina’s his mother, right? Or are both women just apt at setting an example for Naruto to be more cautious and polite with his words? Antis claim it’s unhealthy, abusive (oh, don’t even get me started), yada yada, but Naruto is smarter than that. He knows what is right and what is wrong. Sakura had been hitting him for comic relief since near the beginning of the series and yet he can still look at her and say this:

Compared to:

(Your orientation is a little off there, sweetie.) 

As for the SasuSaku aspect - again, I don’t want to repeat myself. But as a child, I never understood what Sakura saw in Sasuke besides his looks, which were sub-par to begin with. Granted, I guess he just was never my type. I have a thing for blond dorks rather than moody, “I’m cool without trying” guys that don’t put in the effort to make the girl everyone thinks they like feel like she is worth everything in the world and more. Sakura deserves the man who risked his life for her on several different occasions; the one who understands her on a much deeper level than Sasuke or Hinata could ever compare; and the one that knows always has his back, because she cares about him just as much as he cares about her.

In conclusion, Naruto and Sakura are my #1, forever and always, because of their complimenting personalities, their history, and the potential that goes into the budding of a romantic relationship between them. They would be the ultimate power couple, always looking at the bright side head-on and maintaining confidence in whatever they do, as well as one another. Your significant other is supposed to be your best friend, not someone that you minutely trust with your life and have to guess whether or not they tolerate your presence at any given moment. You look me in the eye and tell me that Naruto and Sakura don’t mean the world to each other, because they do. They always will, no matter how much they try - and fail - to put Hinata and Sasuke in the forefront of both the series, and our own, interests.

Seeing this still makes my blood boil. It isn’t about a woman of awe-inspiring powers displaying her vulnerable side. It’s about reducing a female character, after showcasing her terrifying abilities just a few scenes before, into a stereotypical picture of an uncertain, insecure, bashful woman in love. While her male counterparts get to make grandiose speeches and (implicitly)assert their heroic natures. They are the public men, Sakura’s the private woman in her metaphorical hearth.

Just take a moment to think about how their immediate preoccupations have been juxtaposed against each other. See the difference between Sasuke’s interaction with Sakura and Naruto. The undermining is so brilliantly subtle that it’s generally construed as a beautiful, romantic moment.

Nothing much matters if the prodigal son offers a patronising (and tender) explication of his desire for redemption to the ever-constant girl. Does it?
