This is a mini rant inspired by the episode of shipuuden i just watched. I’m addicted to Naruto Shipuuden. Mainly bcoz it reminds me of my life. Not forgetting the fact that i can now speak pidgin Japanese. Anyway With crazy ninja wars, kunai flying everywhere, insane ninjutsu and illusionist combat, what’s not to love? Of course, Shipuuden is pretty cool too. So anyway despite my unhealthy worship of this show, it has its shortcomings. In the midst of all the cooler than life battles, bloodshed, cheesy lines, over-emphasis on honor and disturbingly simplistic slapstick humor there is…the main storyline. Which basically is
Naruto wanting to shag Sasuke.
Now i know at this point all my fellow anime enthusiasts are
vowing to travel to the far east obtain one of the few remaining original Hattori Hanzo swords subsequently find me and proceed to descend upon me with the wrath of a thousand Menzoberranzan dwelling dark elves, (be proud Quentin, u hav a following)
and generally over reacting in a melodramatic fashion as only a proper anime fan can. And with good reason, Naruto Shipuuden was voted one of the best animes of all time!! in a poll taken by thelittlemeninmymind. (no really, thats an actual website) Basically i love the show, but there is just something unnatural about the relationship that Naruto has with Sasuke. I mean its been a couple o YEARS fool!! you were friends, he left you behind, get over it. Everyone moves on with their lives. but no, not Naruto. He still believes in his Sasuke’s innocence. Seriously what does Sasuke hav to do for Naruto to realise that its not gonna work out, rape a person?? ‘Sasuke the sodomite’ *shudders* (I was gonna develop that line of thought but i didnt want to give aggrey any ideas)
well anyway, that said, I still love the show and am still trying to overcome my addiction. (Damn you Masashi!!) And to those who are still offended by my earlier remark and have with them, a fierce bloodlust, a hattori hanzo and a cinematic imagination akin to my own, i have only a few words:
I’ll be waiting.
oh yeah and also, if we’re really gonna do this like i know we’re gonna bcoz i just called you out, I’d appreciate it if u prepared your half of the showdown dialogue beforehand and sent it to me via email. you know, jus so i can do the same. I’ve found that it tends to make the battle flow more smoothly and tons more epic. thanks.
