    But the one guy she is most likely to end up with in canon is Choji. Yet there is almost no fandom for it. There are no ChoIno months. It is just funny that Ino could very likely end up with Choji in canon, but still get paired with everyone else in fandom. Is Choji that hated?
    I'm honestly thinking that it has more to do with his weight than anything else. I honestly don't see what the big deal is either.

    In case you don't know Kurenai already had her baby
    Wow, i've been under a rock.... But the seal could probably be released!! Every seal we've seen has either been broken OR released.

    Perhaps, but why would someone bother to do that... And in the case under discussion i guess Shikamaru will make sure that things stay the way they are

    Well, the soul is just stuck in a package basically for eternity right? It would be good if they opened it, un did the jutsu and he went to Heaven. Just trying to think postive Dark blood.

    I just read my last sentence and it sounded so gramatically bad. I've had a few to many drinks. Usually it helps my vocab though. haha

    Anyways to back on the subject, Asuma doesn't deserve that though!! He's a very good man. In any case, let him live! And let him be alive with Kurani as an edo Tensi.

    WSJ Pirate Re: Romance & Society in Naruto

    So I think I'm ready to give up completely on the concept of romance in Naruto's story.


    It's pleasant to think back on all the fun I've had in this thread discussing various character dynamics, and the many different opinions we all had on them, and where we all thought they they would go, even if ultimately the relationships went nowhere; and that is exactly what they did.

    I've come to believe the classic statement that "Kishimoto can't write romance" isn't entirely accurate, though not far from the truth. My conclusion is that the thing that he can't, or won't, write is actually the second stage (and beyond) of romantic relationships. He builds them up just fine initially, and just doesn't seem to have any clue where to go from there. He throws out scenes that seem like they hold the possibility of progressing and then just regresses back. Like a turtle peaking out of it's shell and then shrinking back inside, over and over again.

    Just look at the what happened and what impact it had regarding recent relationship events.

    Hinata confesses her love ----> Naruto shows no sign he even remembers it

    Karin resolves to move on from Sasuke (after he stabs her) -----> She goes back to fangirling for no reason


    Sakura decides it's time to stop allowing her feelings for Sasuke to paralyze her and burden Naruto -----> She goes back to burdening/fangirling


    Hinata pretty much confesses her love again ----> Naruto implies to his dad that Sakura is his girlfriend like 10mins later.


    etc, etc, etc. It was the illusion of progress. Naruto likes Sakura. Sakura likes Sasuke. Hinata likes Naruto. All of those things were true at the beginning of the series and they really haven't changed much, if at all. The sad thing is that some of those parts of the story relating to changes in those relationships were actually good but, because they were ultimately voided by the narrative, they have no ultimate meaning. They don't build to anything or lead to anything other than circling back on themselves. Giving those parts essentially the same value as filler.

    With the way things have gone it doesn't even matter how the great Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke love triangle resolves. Sakura's not really going to form a believable relationship with either(because that would require progress), in the end she's probably just there so Naruto and Sasuke can avoid being gay thanks to the golden rule.

    Spoiler: For those who don't know what the "Golden Rule" is... show

    Re: Romance & Society in Naruto

    I'm sad that Kishi completely threw out romance when it would have added much needed complexity to the story. But I guess the complexity and maturity of the manga got killed when the war arc started in favor of appealing to kids and fan service.

    this is more ironic than this .... Sasuke was in konoha and he didn't bother himself to goes and find Karin ....

    any way , Naruto is a moron but Sasuke , he is like a married man who really love his wife and is really afraid of her , so he won't look at other women and girls ....

    Re: Romance & Society in Naruto

    ,The only fucking love affair I love in Naruto was that of Minato and Kushina.

    ,Kushina used to hate her hair, but Minato changed that attitude.

    ,It was that hair that let Minato saved Kushina, and their first ever romantic experience was witnessed by no one, but the MOON.

    Spoiler show


    ,which will be the main key to Mugen Tsukuyomi.

    If you really think about...and take time to see Naruto for the way it is...the only real romance, and true love story in Naruto is that of Minato and Kushina. Everything is just failure after failure.

    Re: Romance & Society in Naruto

    Super romantic love story of all...
    Minato and kushina

    Super tragic love story of all....
    Itachi and some random uchiha girl.

    Minato killed/sacrificed himself for kushina's sake.
    While itachi killed his lover for konoha's sake.
