So Naruto ended... again...

Which means it’s time for feels ;‿;

Shippuden is over, and the focus of the franchise is now switching to Boruto. So, while we don’t exactly have to say our final goodbyes to this fictional world, this was technically the last time we had Naruto as the main character. Ever… probably.
And it just hit me hard, that this was the last time Team 7 were our heroes!

I personally only read the manga, and didn’t really watch the anime except for the first like 100 episodes of the original series, which introduced the little me to the franchise. From then on, it’s only been occasional visits to the show, like when a big manga moment was getting animated. 

However, I did watch all of this last arc that mostly adapted the novels, because I’m a sucker for domestic lives of these characters. I was a little bummed they didn’t adapt Sakura Hiden (SP neglecting Sakura and SasuSaku as always, I’m used to it) but other than that, I loved this Epilogue of sorts, it gave most characters a more proper and detailed closure. Well, at least we got to see what most of them were up to after the war.

While I can’t complain we got to see the preparations for Naruto and Hinata’s wedding, I can’t help wishing we’d seen even further into the adult lives of Team 7. They were the main characters, and their bonds were what drove most of the plot. I believe they deserved a heartwarming moment or two at the end. Something nostalgic to remind us of their earliest moments, only with more maturity and more emotional depth. 

Now, I absolutely loved the NaruHina wedding preparations, and how the focus on romance in the arc highlighted the final pairings, and also that tiny, but meaningful SasuSaku moment when Sasuke’s hawk landed specifically on Sakura’s hand.
But with all that, I still can’t help feeling like I was missing an actual Team 7 moment. A moment between Naruto and Sasuke, and the whole team together, Kakashi included; something to show how far they’ve come. Even if it was just a single, very short scene, I’d be satisfied.

I personally always imagined Naruto ending with Team 7 going on a mission together, like good old days, but with the way Kishimoto ended the manga, it obviously wasn’t going to happen. So a close second, in my opinion, would have been a Team 7 reunion.
Of course, Naruto and Hinata getting married was also important, because it conveyed that Naruto is finally a grown, dependable man now, and it’s fine if they wanted to end the show with it. But Team 7 has been such a crucial part of the show that I found myself eagerly expecting an after-credits scene featuring Team 7 finally reuniting and having a moment of their own. It would have been THE perfect ending!

Nevertheless, I still cried my eyes out throughout most of that finale! And a part of me died again. The manga ended back in 2014, so I didn’t think I’d feel quite so strongly about the anime ending, but I did. The fact that it was the last episode actually surprised me, I didn’t know they were planning to end Shippuden just before Boruto started. So it hit me all at once, and I was a crying bundle of emotions ;‿;

All I can say is, even though I was more of a manga fan, the end of Shippuden yet again marked the end of a phase in my life (I feel so old, I’m like the fandom grandma, and all these kids will watch Boruto for the next few years and see us original fans as dinosaurs or something). 
And I must say - I will keep following the Naruto franchise through Boruto’s story (don’t forget, you’re here forever!) - and to my first and only hero, Naruto,

THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES!

Day 50: A song you think everyone has forgotten.

They say I only think in the form of crunching numbers
in hotel rooms collecting page six lovers.
Get me out of my mind and get you out of those clothes.
I’m a liner away from getting you into the mood.

WOAH!

Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. […] Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. […] Appreciating small victories. […] Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. […] And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. […] At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing […] is reason enough to celebrate.

Your name appeared on my phone and it didn’t make my heart sink to my stomach or flood my head with memories. For the first time, I felt absolutely nothing. And feeling nothing has never made me feel so alive.

I couldn’t sleep last night because I know that it’s over between us. I’m not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I’ll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent a summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give to you forever. I love you. I’ll be seeing you.
