Am I the only one who’s honestly excited to see Sasuke school Naruto about ninja politics next chapter? Because I am far from rooting for Naruto to own Sasuke (people who do are missing the entire point of this manga’s plot, as well as its most important (albeit forced) parallels).
Note that I only say I want Sasuke to teach Naruto about how the world works (I also agree with Sasuke’s conviction that the shinobi system needs revolution, but I’m not too sure I will like his methods). Because let’s be honest here: for a character who has such strong political ambitions, Naruto pays too little attention to history and hasn’t expressed any concrete plans for how exactly he would go about fixing the world’s problems. I doubt he’s even aware of the significance of the place he and Sasuke are standing in. Sure he is aware of how the war of the transmigrants began, but he doesn’t have the entire picture; he doesn’t know how Hokage came to be, and more importantly, just what a terrible effect it had on everyone, especially Sasuke.
Instead Naruto is gleefully parroting Itachi’s words, completely unaware that the ideology behind them is flawed and that it eventually destroyed his and Sasuke’s families (I’ll get to this later). He seems to think that the problem lies with Sasuke misunderstanding what it means to be a Hokage… but he’s wrong. Sasuke knows damn well - all too well - what that means. Sasuke recognises that if someone doesn’t change what it means, history is only going to repeat itself. And Naruto’s failure to recognise the need for a redefinition of this meaning makes him a direct threat to the fulfillment of Sasuke’s ideal.
Now I don’t particularly see the “pseodo-democratic” system Konoha adopted as all that “bad”, but it nevertheless has an inherent flaw that’s overlooked to an alarmingly high degree: widely held views accepted by the majority are not just or true by default.
For instance, the case of Madara. It’s very funny (and very depressing) to note that he’s almost universally misunderstood - by people within and outside his universe. This man did not abandon Konoha for selfish pride or a lust for power. Konoha was his dream. A dream he was forced to give up but still wanted more than anything. The fact that he couldn’t allow himself to trust Hashirama until it was too late does not change that. Unfortunately, by the time he finally softened and decided to believe it could work, his previous hostility, distrustfulness, and disgraceful emotional outburts had already made him an unsympathetic figure.
Most people could not see Madara for the man he truly was. They didn’t know that he and Hashirama had once been close friends. They didn’t know that he loved him dearly. They didn’t know that he had been forced to become his enemy. They didn’t know he had agreed to peace because he wanted to. They didn’t know he did not want to betray them. Judging by the public’s attitude towards him, they only saw what was on the surface: i.e. Madara was a stubborn, temperamental warmonger who drove his clan to exhaustion until wonderful Hashirama saved everyone from his madness and forced him to surrender. In this case, the majority did not believe that Madara had truly meant awell. Unfortunately, they had been wrong. And so the fact that many people (Senju included) did not trust Madara and his clan (despite the fact that he had poignantly chosen to trust them), nor believed he was a willing participant in the journey towards peace, nor were willing to check the scales being tipped even more heavily in the Senju’s favour, nor expressed concern for the setting up of the Uchiha for eternal subjugation, eventually poisoned Madara and drove him to do what he did.
Bottom line: the alliance that formed Konoha was not equal and came about in the worst of circumstances. In short, Konoha wasn’t the settlement Madara had dreamed of. It wasn’t Madara’s and Hashirama’s village, something that Uchiha and Senju had an equal stake in - but a villlage ruled by Hashirama, his clan, and whoever did not have the inclination (or power) to threaten the Senju’s ideology.
This system created the suffering Naruto and Sasuke had to endure. Naruto is not fully aware of this - Sasuke is. Sasuke needs to make him realise just what is at stake, and Naruto needs to convince him that they can work together. Throughout this manga, Sasuke has been one of the strongest influences on Naruto’s life and has inspired change in him many times. Thus having Sasuke simply be defeated and “converted” to Naruto’s way of thinking would utterly defeat the point of his character - reducing him to little more than a hollow plot device. Sasuke is not the only one who needs to work on his ideals and compromise.

lightprincessiris said: Sakura vs Hinata and Gaara vs Sasuke I hope you don't mind I asked 2 fights >.<

amitds:

sweetpea95:

amitds:

lunaneko14:

yourturntowatchmyback:

amitds:

Sasusaku wins.

SASUKE VS GAARA:

Current Sasuke would win of course.

EMS Sasuke has amaterasu and the blaze release allowing him to control the flames. He also has an imperfect susanoo, a snake and a hawk summoning.

It would be tough for Gaara to defend against the summonings, sasuke’s fire, lightning, his amaterasu flames, his amaterasu flames combined with a susanoo arrow or sword, his susanoo’s assaults all the while trying to avoid a genjutsu from sasuke.

SAKURA VS HINATA:

This is a controversial match up and many people think that Hinata would win. I disagree. Just because Hinata can block chakra and Sakura uses chakra doesn’t mean that she would win. Also people act like if Sakura is the only ninja that uses chakra lol! THEY ALL DO. 

Sakura is smarter than Hinata, she is also faster with the ability to use chakra to create bursts of speed. Not to mention Sakura is skilled in evasion and reading attack patterns. Sakura knows how a hyuuga fights and she has even seen hinata and neji fight before. She is extremely smart and even if she weren’t she wouldn’t take on a hyuuga at a close range and she wouldn’t give them that chance to block her chakra.

Sakura’s strength:

Sakura just needs to summon katsuyu and punch the ground. Look at the juubi clones in red.

image

Now look at Hinata’s size compared to one of those clones

image

She would be caught in that explosion and tossed up in the air and it is debateable if her air palm can pierce through that. Sakura doesn’t even need to be near her. Also Hinata needs proper footing which sakura would destroy. Sakura can easily increase the distance while shaking the ground and hinata. Hinata would only win if she blocks her chakra points early on. 

Sakura also knows that hinata is best at close range and is a hyuga so she would not even want to get close to her and would try to clear a significant distance and stop hinata from the start. She isn’t even going near hinata. 

Unless hinata is close, which sakura would not allow, she can’t do much. Granted an air palm is her only long distance attack, it is linear in nature and with sakura’s evasive skills and knowledge of reading a person’s moves she can dodge that. Not to mention the explosion created from the punch that would block out an air palm or force hinata to save herself rather than attack. Being an hyuuga and taijutsu expert isn’t helping her stop sakura’s explosion, her slug and it isn’t allowing her to actually reach her.

KATSUYU:

Katsuyu is overkill and is connected to the seal. So even if hinata blocks sakura’s chakra, if sakura summons katsuyu first she would just have to sit there and wait for hinata to run out of chakra and energy while dodging the acid. Given sakura’s reserves in that seal Hinata would be dealing with that slug, that can split into thousands, for a while. Even a byakugan cannot counter thousands of human sized slugs with acid spraying capabilities coming from all directions.

Katsuyu can even divide into thousands of slugs and attack hinata. Acid, their weight and even messing up ‘healing’ hinata can make Katsuyu deadly.

Instead of carefully using enough chakra, sakura and the slug can overload hinata and send her into a coma with their medical chakra and remote healing. 

Portrayal:

Based on portrayal Sakura would be considered stronger. Sakura is using sannin and kage level techniques flawlessly and she is one of the strongest medical ninja and kunoichi in the world. Hinata is great but her reputation and skills aren’t as impressive. She is catching up to neji while sakura is surpassing tsunade.

Other skills:

As i said before Sakura is smarter and faster than hinata. She also knows how hinata fights while hinata doesn’t know everything about sakura.

In a real serious fight, based on sakura’s intelligence and skills she should logically stop hinata from coming close and she should win the battle. If i were sakura i would play it safe with the dangerous chakra blocking hyuuga summon the slug and punch the ground as soon as possible.  Sakura knows how to counter and avoid a hyuuga but Hinata doesn’t know how to counter these.

image

image

There are many ways Sakura can beat Hinata in a fight with Hinata beating sakura only if they are close, there’s no slug, she blocks sakura’s chakra before she does anything. Sakura need only stop or punch the ground. 

I like Hinata I just don’t think she can beat current sakura.

Agreed. People take it on faith that hinata will beat Sakura just because of her taijutsu skills, but Hyuuga are not unstoppable. The reason why Sakura is formidable is because it’s her one punch against multiple attacks. Obviously she would have a higher probability of getting that one hit in than it would take for hinata to attack her with multiple strikes.
That’s not to say that hinata couldn’t find a way around that, but as now we haven’t seen a well rounded skill set from hinata, only her prowess with taijutsu an an fancy attack that we still don’t know the function of.

Uuh………yeah sorry. I can’t ignore this being on my dash anymore. There is a clear absence of common sense in this entire rant.

The thing that holds Sakura back is the fact that it’s one punch and she’s down because she focuses so much chakra in those punches.

I mean have we really ever seen her do more than 2? And as a ninja that’s trained for various combat, Hinata can easily dodge it and if Neji didn’t make it painfully clear during the chunin exams, even 38 palms can kill the strongest of opponents if given the chance. True, while Sakura is also trained for combat she is not trained for regular combat as medic ninja usually have to stay behind so lets not count Hinata out plus she was re-accepted into a family of people that are just as strong as the hokage and expect their next heir to be stronger than the last. 

Sakura and Hinata are both expert kunoichi who were trained by hokage-level people, so until the manga (which I highly doubt would ever do) proves us otherwise, they are perhaps evenly matched and I dont even know why you gave this dumbass anon the time of day.

How is there an absence of common sense here? I talked about why I thought Sakura would win and I used manga facts to show her skills. 

“The thing that holds Sakura back is the fact that it’s one punch and she’s down because she focuses so much chakra in those punches.

“I mean have we really ever seen her do more than 2? And as a ninja that’s trained for various combat, ””

Actually she can use it often as shown in her sasori fight and her fight with kakashi in the beginning of part one. Tsunade does the same thing, they both use the super strength consistently. 

“Hinata can easily dodge it and if Neji didn’t make it painfully clear during the chunin exams, even 38 palms can kill the strongest of opponents if given the chance. ”

Hinata can’t dodge these.

  • An explosion that affected monsters larger than hinata 
  • A giant summon who can split up into thousands of mini slugs (enough to shield most of the village) and overtake a battlefield.

“True, while Sakura is also trained for combat she is not trained for regular combat as medic ninja usually have to stay behind so lets not count Hinata out plus she was re-accepted into a family of people that are just as strong as the hokage and expect their next heir to be stronger than the last. “

Medical ninja usually have to stay behind, however Sakura, like her master, both are exceptions to this rule. Tsunade and Sakura are medical ninja who can engage in battle and who are not restricted to healing. This was evident in Tsunade’s fight with Madara, Sakura’s with Sasori and Tsunade’s fight with Orochimaru. If this restricted them then there is no way Orochimaru would fear her in battle. That’s why she is a sannin and that’s why sakura can fight if need be. Also Sakura’s feats which I spoke of still stands even if Hinata is more of a fighter.

image

image

Tsunade trained Sakura so these rules would not apply to her.

Hinata being accepted back into her clan still doesn’t tell us that she is stronger or more skilled than Sakura. Were they stated as being stronger than the Hokage? The only hyuga who is kage levelled atm is Hiashi. Neji and Hinata are not. 

“Sakura and Hinata are both expert kunoichi who were trained by hokage-level people, so until the manga (which I highly doubt would ever do) proves us otherwise, they are perhaps evenly matched and I dont even know why you gave this dumbass anon the time of day.”

Being trained by kage levelled people doesn’t show us someone’s feats and it doesn’t negate conditions and possibilities in a battle. Just because Kishi didn’t show those 2 fight doesn’t mean that we, as readers, cannot deduce that ourselves. That’s why we have information provided. 

How is saying that they are equal because the manga never showed them fighting any better than me saying Sakura would win because of her techniques? We have seen what they both can do.

 IMO 8/10 times Sakura would win. 

I made a post saying I would accept messages about match ups so that’s why this anon messaged me. There’s nothing wrong with it. If I can say Sasuke can beat Gaara, Temari can beat Hinata and Lee can beat Sakura then I don’t see why I can’t say that Sakura can beat Hinata. I am not insulting Hinata, I actually like her and I think she is nicer than Sakura. 

I am not one to care if people are sensitive about Hinata vs Sakura. This has nothing to do with the characters themselves, NH or SS. Saying Hinata would beat Sakura or vice versa is not bad and I don’t see why I should pander to everyone’s insecurities and not compare them if asked. 

I believe Sakura would beat Hinata in a fight. I still like Hinata and I still respect her abilities. 

 

I thought Hinata and Sakura was equally smart?

Since this is on my dash, I’ll throw my two cents in ^_^ I believe Hinata and Sakura are equally smart (remember the chunin written exam? They were both able to answer all questions without cheating). That’s how I figured they are both intelligent. And in addition, Hinata came up with her own jutsu (correct me if I’m wrong. I judge this based off the fact she is the only one shown to use the twin lion fists in the manga).

Hinata can use the air palm technique, so close combat isn’t much of an issue anymore. Also, Hinata has been shown to be able to use medical ninjutsu (though obviously not as well as Sakura). 

To be honest, I feel like it would be a draw. Although it goes to show how impressive Hinata really is. Sakura got to train under the Hokage. Hinata spent grueling years training with her cousin and team and honing her skills on her own (nothing against Sakura at all! Enduring Tsunade’s training must have been equally, if not more harsh than Hinata’s). 

Yeah, I may be a little biased because Hinata’s my favorite female character, but I do love Sakura as well! Hope I made it objective enough xD

  • Sakura’s intelligence databook stat is higher
  • Sakura is a medical ninja- you need to be exceptionally intelligent
  • Sakura has been praised for her intelligence numerous times, hinata hasn’t
  • Sakura’s academy test scores are among the highest
  • Sakura’s analytical skills are amazing
  • She understood obito’s kamui before kakashi 
  • We don’t know if Hinata finished the first 9 and answered correctly while sakura finished the first 9 before everyone else and ibiki was amazed that she did. He passed them all after naruto’s speech.
  • Hinata used medical ninjutsu in a filler scene

Hinata is no doubt intelligent but Sakura is smarter and has had her intelligence actually mentioned in the manga. 

The air palm is hinata’s best bet but as i said before, sakura’s ground punch can negate it and send hinata flying thus making her avoid the linear attack.

Anonymous said: How can people still think that Sasuke doesn't care about Sakura? The latest chapter pretty much hinted at him actually reciprocating her feelings. But no, let's just take his words at face value and ignore his facial expressions and body language. Dear ASSes, Naruto is a manga. The pictures are just as important as words, sometimes even more. So please, if your reading comprehension is beyond saving, pay attention to what the pictures try to show you, and maybe then you'll not hurt yourself.

I like you anon. Well said.

Anonymous said: Since you're Japanese can you explain the difference between daisuki and aishiteru? Sakura used daisuki to confess to Sasuke but is it romantic?

kuwnaruto:

Well, what i know Daisuki is commonly used during a confession with a person you’re not in a relationship with, but like romantically or just like a lot, what people don’t understand is Daisuki is commonly used in Animes to express affection romantically, most if not all confessions which happen in animes use “Daisuki”Aishiteru is hardly ever used, however when used it is mostly when you’re in a strong committed relationship with the person etc married couples or long term relationship (Even a sibling relationship), example being Itachi using aishiteru when telling Sasuke he loved him during the Kabuto vs Itachi/Sasuke fight, 

So yes according to her words she did confess romantically, and honestly being Japanese or not you should know by now that she loves Sasuke there’s no way around it 

Hope this helps with your confusion

Except no that’s totally wrong? I’m on mobile so I guess that’s why an anti showed up on the pro tag.

As someone who took Japanese for 3 years, it’s common to use daisuki in confessions.
Aisuru can be platonic or romantic depending on the context, but yes it’s a more powerful form of to say you love someone/something.

And Kakashi used aisuru when describing Sakura’s love to Sasuke.

Plus, Sakura didn’t use the past tense of love, I don’t know why mangapanda translated it that way. The official and the raw both confirm this.

I get so excited to read posts from that guy/girl because you’re guaranteed to laugh your ass off at how delusional they are.

I took 4 years of Japanese and I own a lot of Japanese manga, especially a lot of manga written by CLAMP. Every confession in CLAMP manga contained “Daisuki”. No one doubts that Sakura and Shaoran of Cardcaptor Sakura have romantic love, but their confessions to each other used “daisuki” not suki da, not aishiteru. If you even watch anime, confessions are always daisuki… Idk why people are claiming SasuSaku is platonic, if they don’t know Japanese or don’t pay attention to confessions in subbed anime or raw manga format. It’s not like the Japanese language is going to change ONLY for SasuSaku and suddenly “daisuki” is going to become platonic when it is basically NOT platonic when it is used in any sort of confession in anime and manga. Yes, daisuki can be used between friends, but in particular is used with a PERSON THAT YOU LIKE. Which given the context of chapter 693, is clearly a confession in a romantic sense. Aishiteru is love for more serious relationships, and this is how Kakashi refers to Sakura’s love from an outsider’s point of view.
