Persona 5 → Protagonist
do you really believe Naruto VS Sasuke is still a probability at this stage?? and omg, a part iii no, ffs!
The foreshadowing is there, so I do think there will be a confrontation between them; but I’ve always believed it will be more a clash of ideologies rather than anything. So in that regard, I do think it could be handled in a volume. What matters the most to me though is that it should represent the last steps in Sasuke’s character development; including the moment when he will finally come around regarding his nakama, what he means to them and what they mean to him in turn. Honestly though, as long as that happens I don’t care if he and Naruto fight or not. I’ve never been in this manga for the fights, so it would be no skin off my nose hahah
Hahaha that’s pretty much my reaction too, glad to see I’m not the only one completely against a Part III! lol I’ve been here for 10 years, I really can’t do this for much longer.
As for the movie, I honestly don’t know what to think yet because there’s so little info out. Look at Road to Ninja for example; it was basically Kishi exploring an AU scenario that he wouldn’t get to do in the manga. Yet the fact that Obito cast the Mugen Tsukuyomi in the movie did not keep him from doing it in the manga.
The movie is being promoted as the start of a new project. So, what will this project be about? Maybe Kishi will do a time-skip in the manga before resolving the stuff with Sasuke, and this first movie is just to show what the characters were doing during it, since it’s something Kishi can’t waste time addressing in the manga itself. And if this is just the first movie, then the following ones could take place after the manga ends and as such there would be no problem with the continuity.
Granted that’s just me brainstorming. I’m probably ways-off lol But what I’m trying to say is that if the manga doesn’t end this year, there could be ways to make the movie tie in without it spoiling anything nor presenting any continuity issues. All in all though, you could very well be right!
i think naruto will end in twelve or ten chapters (november, this year) on volume 72, maybe even less. What are your thoughts on it? You think SasuKarin for good in this time??
Oh anon, to be honest with you, the thought of Naruto wrapping up this year when there’s still the Sasuke vs Naruto fight to go (and all the character development that should be involved in that) just… does not compute. I’ve been wanting Naruto to end for what feels like ages now (and I’m against the thought of a possible Part 3 precisely because I need this ride to end), but I don’t want what I’ve been looking forward to the most - aka, Sasuke’s mini character arc - to be rushed. Even less so when Kishi sure took his sweet time with the war as a whole.
I’m more inclined to think that what Kishi may be wrapping up is just the war. So then we’d have one final step left to go: Sasuke (and perhaps the Bijuu, too, depending on what happens in the next chap). So maybe four more volume tops? At least I can hope it won’t be more than that lol (god knows that if there really is a Part III somewhere that lasts for more than a year I’m out and will just drop by again when it ends).
But to answer your question (and thank you for asking for my opinion!), if you are correct then all I can envision in that regard is an open ending with (very) strong hints but no set resolution. Unless Kishi really wants to make it canon and just… speed-walks through the process. Which wouldn’t sit too well with me, but beggars can’t be choosers I guess lol
Damn it, find your blog was the greatest thing that ever happened in my entire shipper life. God bless you.
Episode 12 was full of so many wonderful things, but this:
The fact that “light appears in the dark color of Haruka’s eyes" (x) after hearing Rin calling out to him is still one of my favorite things ever. It’s such a poignant, beautiful detail and it says so much it honestly kills me. Even more so because it’s a fact that they always, always made Haru speak through his eyes to make up for his silent nature.
It’s been nearly a year and I’m still not over it ;~;
can we please appreciate sousuke’s face after rin makes it to the finals look how happy he is that his best friend is achieving his dream, look how content he looks despite the situation he’s in oh my god
