... and I'm still reading it no matter what Kishi throws into the cookie dough! That's dedication!
... but those days are long gone. I'm numb to it all, now! It's time to self-medicate with unabashed laughter!
The next time Obito passes out first at a party, let's write "Likes Juubi Poop" on his face with a Sharpie.
Trollbito to the rescue!
What can I say, I like to help keep everyone whipped up into a frenzied whirlwind of near-insanity, crushing despair, and giddy hysterical laughter. I suits my purposes.Quote:
The only thing more adorable than Regular Gaara? Chibi Gaara. In drag. With a fish.Quote:
No matter how execrable a chapter, no matter how cold the cruel world, SD Gaara makes it all better. He is a balm for all wounds. And thus it is, dear Capslocketeers, that I share this comfort with you, in hopes that we may all see a new dawn together without our straightjackets.
It's nice to know I'm not the only one who went "What the fucking fuck is going the fuck on?"Quote:
A wild Little Obito appears! Obito is confused!Quote:
(Because one Obito is not enough.)
Oh god... trying to suffocate us again aren't you?Quote:
I've read this weeks Capslock before the actual chapter... It's so frighteningly accurate I've envisioned over half of the panels correctly before even glancing upon them for the first time.
Kishi should just turn this into a comedy manga and hire you as the western translator... I should write this into the "how would you save Naruto" thread.

Your badge is much better than mines!!! Congrats Bloomer
It's becoming par for the course with Naruto lately.
What the fucking fuck is going on? I keep hoping that whatever it is will happen sometime in that distant hazy future known as "next week", but so far... no luck.
Naruto uses Confuse. It's super effective!Quote:
The world needs more Obito. It needs a big one, a little one, an outer one, an inner one...Quote:
... I need a Snidely Whiplash smiley.
... maybe I could, I don't know, huff some glue or something after I write it, so I forget all about what I just did. That should work. Although, according to After School Specials, I have a 110% chance of dying and having the school yearbook dedicated to me.
And I even wear a shirt with my name on it at all times so I don't forget who I am.
And what are you complaining about, you got two! It's quantity over quality!
Wait, let's compare...
Hmm, let's take a closer look at that.
There's just something about that face...
Gaaaahh!! That almost gave me a heart attack!
Yeah, you're right, mine is much more terrifying.
I would be honored to wear the official Pennywise badge, putting fear into little children and big man as well.
Dedicated to my PR Manager LnDRash; I couldn't have won the Funniest Menbaa nightmare clown without you.
Its eyes will follow you no matter where you go in the room.
WELCOME TO ICHA ICHA PARADISE!
Today's special guest is fresh from sewing his own spleen back in; please give a warm welcome to the biggest bookworm in town, Kakashi! He does his part to keep the kids interested in literature in this week's

KAKASHI: ... EH? OH, RIIIIGHT! I GETCHA. 'CAUSE OF THE TROUBLED FRIENDSHIP AND GOING OFF THE RAILS AND TAKING RESPONSIBILITY AND YADDA YADDA.
MINATO: YEAH, BECAUSE OF THAT.
KAKASHI: OKAY, LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED, SHALL WE? ALL RIGHT, KIDS, WATCH CAREFULLY. THIS IS HOW YOU STAB A WAYWARD FRIEND TO PUT HIM OUT OF HIS AND EVERYONE ELSE'S MISERY. ALTERNATELY, YOU CAN SLIT HIS THROAT OR JUST RASENGAN HIS ASS INTO NEXT YEAR. ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME, NARUTO?
MINATO: I DON'T WANT MY KID TO SEE THIS!!
MINATO: NARUTO! GET YOUR ASS OVER TO WHEREVER THE HELL MADARA IS MAKING PEOPLE FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE AND MAKE HIM STOP DOING IT.

MINATO: NOT SO FAST, JUNIOR. RIN WOULDN'T WANT YOU TWO TO BE BICKERING LIKE THIS!
KAKASHI: YEAH, I'M GONNA NEED SOME MORE CONVINCING.
MINATO: UM... I'M REALLY SORRY I WASN'T THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU NEEDED ME. THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR, ISN'T IT? WAS THAT GOOD, OR SHOULD I CONTINUE BEATING MYSELF UP AND BEGGING FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS.
OBITO: THE SECOND ONE.
KAKASHI: YEAH, I WOULDN'T MIND A LITTLE MORE OF THAT MYSELF.
OBITO: RIN WAS THE ONLY THING I GAVE A SHIT ABOUT...
KAKASHI: WHAT IN THE SERIOUS FUCK, OBITO! I AM SITTING RIGHT HERE!
OBITO: IF YOU GAZE INTO THE ABYSS, THE ABYSS GAZES BACK INTO YOU!
MINATO: COME ON, NOW, KIDDO... NOT THIS MOODY, FAUX-NIHILIST BULLSHIT. WHAT ARE YOU, FIFTEEN??
OBITO: IT'S NOT FAUX!!
KAKASHI: IT REALLY ISN'T. THE WORLD IS PRETTY MUCH A SHIT-BARGE ON FIRE.
MINATO: OH KAKASHI... NOT YOU, TOO. SIGH. I GUESS I'LL GO BUY YOU BOTH SOME JOURNALS AND A FEW PACKS OF SMOKES.
OBITO: IF YOU AGREE WITH ME, WHY DIDN'T YOU GO BONKERS, TOO?
KAKASHI: WELL, I LOST MY FATHER, MY TWO BEST FRIENDS AND MY TEACHER, BUT BECAUSE I THOUGHT YOU COULD LIVE ON THROUGH ME, IT GAVE ME COURAGE TO STAY THE RIGHT COURSE, YOU DIG?
OBITO: I THINK SO. GOSH, THIS IS REALLY SAD.
KAKASHI: IT IS, ISN'T IT?
OBITO: EVERYTHING SUCKS.
KAKASHI: HEY, DON'T START.
OBITO: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THINGS WILL TURN OUT DIFFERENTLY FOR YOUR KNUCKLEHEADED STUDENT?
KAKASHI: WHICH ONE? I HAVE A FEW. OH, YOU'RE PROBABLY TALKING ABOUT NARUTO. WELL, UNLIKE YOU, HE HAS A SHIT TON OF SUPPORT.
OBITO: HOW NICE FOR HIM.
KAKASHI: OH, YEAH, IT'S GREAT. EVERYBODY LOVES HIM AND WANTS TO HELP HIM.
OBITO: GEE, THAT'S JUST SUPER.
KAKASHI: IT'S TOO BAD YOU DIDN'T GET A BUNCH OF PEOPLE TO SUPPORT YOUR DREAMS.
OBITO: I DID. THEY'RE ALL DEAD, THANKS IN NO SMALL PART TO YOU AND THOSE MEDDLING KIDS.
KAKASHI: OH YEAH... THOSE GUYS.
OBITO: YEP. THOSE GUYS.
KAKASHI: HEY, DON'T FEEL SO BAD. THEY WERE MOSTLY JERKS.
OBITO: WELL, THERE'S STILL ONE LEFT WHO'S ABOUT TO CAUSE SOME SERIOUS TROUBLE. I DON'T THINK THIS POWER OF FRIENDSHIP BULLSHIT IS GOING TO BE ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH MADARA'S HAIR.
KAKASHI: OMG YOU HAD ME GOING.
KAKASHI: HA HA, RIGHT? LIKE THERE'S ANYTHING PoF CAN'T DEFEAT. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT YOU WERE SERIOUS FOR A MOMENT!
OBITO: IT WAS SOOOO HARD TO KEEP A STRAIGHT FACE JUST THEN.
KAKASHI: YOU DID A GREAT JOB!
TUNE IN FOR MORE DEPRESSING CONVERSATION THE NEXT TIME THE AUTHOR FEELS LIKE IT!
NEXT EPISODE: GUEST STARRING KAKASHI'S SPLEEN AS IT FINALLY ERUPTS FROM THE POOR STITCHERY IN HIS GUT. KAKASHI WAS NEVER GOOD AT SEWING, MAKING COSPLAY WAS MORE OBITO'S THING.
OBITO: *guiltily takes off Homestuck troll outfit*
RIN: *ships it*
That clown doesn't look funny at all; it's creepy as hell... I bet you like it :3
Obito's cause isn't unjustifiable...there are some real nut jobs in this world that go crazy when they lose their only loved one. Think about it, Obito felt that Rin was the closest one to him. He felt inferior to Kakashi, Minato, and all the other Ninja of the village. The only one that really got to know him was Rin. I hate that all of you don't get that are some people in this world that have serious psychological meltdowns as a result of losing someone that is the closest to them. It doesnt just take weeks to get over this crap, it takes years. And it didn't help tha twhen this happened to Obito, he stumbled upon the 2nd most powerful person in the manga next to Hashirama right now: Madara. Who manipulated the crap out of him, had a trap set for him that was built into his body (Black zetsu: AKA madara's will in zetsu form).
Yes, Obito's type of story for a villain is one that we're not use to. But that is what makes it unique, I don't understand why mos tof you spend time finding reasons to why it is wrong, when you should be finding as many reasons as possible to justify why Kishi is using this background technique for Obito's villain story. Remember, this isn't your story, it's Kishimoto's. So do what you can to make good interpretations rather than ones that don't add to the benefit of Naruto discussion and contaminate this damn Forum with rants and posts about dissapointment 24/7. Find what your disappointed about but don't spend all your time squandering about it, try to find out what is good and try to make good interpretations.
But if you don't like that it's out there. That's just too bad.
PS: As for Obito being new, he's a just a point by point melodramatic copy of Nagato. How is that something "we're not used to"?
