Problem 1: Sakura doesn’t look happy at all!
Look at what she thought to herself “you’re gonna keep me waiting” and her deep SLUMP in the last panel.
Problem 2: Sasuke is leaving AGAIN and he didn’t even bothered to bid farewell to Sakura, his wife, properly. He only said it to Sarada. I really fail to see the “unconditional love” between Sasusaku here.
Problem 3: Sasuke’s probable smirk in the bottom panel.
Some SS shippers said that Sasuke was teasing Sakura. MERELY TEASING Sakura and that it’s supposed to be cute or whatever. Affectionate teasing ONLY works when the other party is still able to feel the affection and joy and the party who did the teasing would do something sweet to make up for the teasing.
But did Sasuke do anything??! Kishi could easily made it like Sasuke leaving with a smirk and then somehow appearing in front of Sakura again and give her a goodbye kiss or a hug or whatever. But NO!
Next, Sakura clearly did not derived any joy or affection from the teasing. Look at her deep slouch!! She looked utterly depressed!!
And what caught my attention while scrolling through the anti Sasusaku tag, I saw lots of anti Sakura posts because people felt that Sakura was spineless and self centered (ever since the last Gaiden chapter came out of Karin letting Sasuke go). It’s so sad because Sakura is technically supposed to be the heroine of the series. And Kishi basically butchered her character and relegated her back to her immature, boy crazy 12 year old self.
That’s so sad. I’m not a hard core Sakura fan, but I felt that she deserved better.
So much better.
Kishi really sucks at writing romance and females. He should just spare the manga/anime fans from anymore bad romance and female writing . Just retire from manga and live off the money u made from Naruro.
