I guess my friends exaggerate my reputation. I can be cruel sometimes, but I still wonder why I can be a terror. Maybe it's just because no one has been able to make me submit, but I guess if someone with more fearsome personality exists here, I won't be known as the most evil person around.
Not really. Sometimes if I just explode in anger, I will say hurtful things (and yeah, me being a brutally honest person, my words are like daggers) without caring, which I will only regret later after I reflect on myself. I can't take back my words. They would have hurt the person already and what if those words are the very last thing you say to him/her?
But thankfully, I'm generally a phlegmatic, so I stay away from conflict as far away as possible. I try to constrain myself. It's not easy; I even cry sometimes from swallowing all the anger, but after that, I'll be thankful that I don't make things worse, so I guess it's worth it. I also try to see things from many perspectives-I try to stand on other people's shoes-so it won't be that hard for me to stop my ego from overcoming me.
So mature for his age they say of me. It gets annoying sometimes when I know I'm always expected to act rationally.
Occasionally short-tempered, generally dependable character with empathy and self-control.
I suppose you will not have too many mental problems down the road
People always have expectations, don't they? You shouldn't be too bothered by it. I used to bother, but I just disappointed myself in the end.
I hope so. The road is still far ahead though... Who knows if I can turn to be a second Darth Vader...
If they let me be myself, I'm not too bothered, but generally, they constantly pick up the topic and the situation deteriorates.
That wouldn't be too bad. You'd be feared, respected, have a cool appearance and in the end, there is redemption waiting for you
Just don't imitate his hoarse voice, of course
No, never read anything related to Japanese literature. But now that you mentioned about it, I wonder if I can access any sorts of related material here in Turkey.
eBay and the like are possible options, of course. I can't see any other plausible method for the time being.
When they do, just think again about what matters most to you. It might help.
I guess it's not that bad, but I just wish I don't have too fearsome a reputation. It can be a hindrance sometimes.
Nah, I'll just keep humming Imperial March wherever I go.

I recommend you to look for Hyakunin Isshu (One Hundred Poems) if you're interested to know more of Japanese literature someday.
I'm also curious what you think about Kishi's absolute trashing of Nagato's character. I'm of course aiming at his entire power being borrowed.
Now, if you can imitate Yoda English, too, that would be even more awesome

Yes, the nonsense of implanted Rinnegan. He was supposed to be, and in the end became one of the Children of the Prophecy, so, pulling out such a trick really tramped on the entire beauty of the story.
Because Rikudo Sennin was a legendary figure, the story, for me, had to include his reincarnation at some point, but with this info revealed, the legacy of Rikudo Sennin is cast aside, too. Rinnegan lost its splendor, as well.
I don't know, maybe it's just me, but the coherence of the history in Naruto has been shattered when Rinnegan was revealed to be a mere implantation.
I preferred Pain-Nagato. He was by far the best villain in Naruto, and I loved the story when you knew shit was going down when he got serious. When Jiraiya invaded Amegakure, you knew he was as good as dead because Pain had received massive build up as the ultimate badass. When it on top of that was revealed that he had the ultimate doujutsu, things got interesting. I kind of liked Tobi too, but I would have preferred if Nagato stayed evil in the twisted and realistic way he was, and in the end ended up betraying Tobi, thus adding additional tension to the story. I was extremely disappointed when he was so short-lived. In the end Nagato had a far better story than Obito had, and his fall is more realistic and understandable by a landslide. The failure in maintaining real villains is a major turn off for many Naruto fans. It's a reason people preferred the old Akatsuki/Pain plot. I liked Tobi, but I can't even look at him after he took his mask off. Madara is an extremely cheaply put in villain too. When people are screaming for an ass-pull snake and Uchiha brat to take over the villain roles, you know things have gone bad.
Pain-Nagato was indeed going to betray Tobi. He would never accept the concept of an ultimate, everlasting genjutsu casting as the final step. But apparently, there needed to be a sacrifice for Naruto, and it ended up being Nagato.
I'm not saying his redemption was trash. But I have said it countless times up to now and will say it again. Sacrificing himself to revive back those he killed was nonsense. He himself told Naruto about what war really is and what he will face down the road. Why did he choose to relieve his pain at that moment, when clearly he wouldn't be there to do it even once again in the future? His role could have gone on, but he considered himself as done and made a meaningless move.
Tobi, once after revealed as Obito, is no longer a villain. Everyone is waiting for the moment talk no jutsu takes over him and he's done. Madara is too arrogant for a man of his power. He's so consumed with the power he has right now that he is more of a posing model than a villain.
Sasuke is a kid. Give him every existing jutsu in the world as power-up, he still has no clue what to do, where to go, who to trust or listen. He is at best a nice litle sidekick for a villain.
Orochimaru can take over the role. But for that to happen, he should finally show something else, instead of blabbering on about "that young Uchiha body".
Truth be told, after Part I Orochimaru and the introduction of Pain, we ended up with "Nobody is evil, they just had to go through traumatic events. If you happily hug them until they are suffocated, they will entrust you with some unrealistic task and pass away".
That's why, dare I say it, Orochimaru will go visit Tsunade, have a redemption moment, and be appointed by Tsunade as the Sixth Hokage in her dying wish, entrusted with Will of Fire. Such level of absurdness is achievable with the current direction we are headed in.
Madara giving Nagato the Rinnegan at such an old age is a serious history failure on Kishi's part. He was basically dying (you see he looks just as old as in the flashbacks), yet he managed to travel to Amegakure, find this random Uzumaki boy and give them to him without said boy even noticing, not to mention his parents! Ridiculous.
Yup, Nagato's nuclear plan wasn't a lie. He already lied about the plans once to the Akatsuki members, but his explanation to Naruto was real. Considering his God complex he likely believed he could take out Tobi easily once he had no more use of him. And yeah, his sacrifice was pretty stupid. Considering his character I guess he believed he deserved to die, even so the change was too drastic, contradictory and fast.
I'm not sure what on earth Orochimaru is doing. He's too weak to become the big bad. The only way he could become awesome would be to take over Sasuke, recreating the Sasuke-Snake hybrid, but with EMS to boot. Still there's no way Kishi will do that to Sasuke, so I don't know what he'll do. I'm still feeling sorry for how cheaply Kabuto was killed off. You really stand no chance when your opponent is your own mangaka pulling ridiculous moves out of his ass.
Implanting the eyes on a random guy is on itself a failure. I mean, from where Madara had the idea that the chosen kid would be manipulated by Obito into his path is a mystery. He basically rolled a dice. He dragged his dying foot with him to use a fuuinjutsu on a little kid, granting him the greatest single power in history, hoping he would one day revive him. Yeah, great plan.
If he was redeemed, he was supposed to go there and kill Obito and end the war before it even began. Suicidal move was nonsense. It's the way Jiraiya handled the situation with Nagato. He went on and on about how Nagato deviated from the path of truth, yet, I wonder if he ever realized it was his mistake in leaving a teenager kid with Rinnegan to himself, open to manipulation. Yeah, actually he did. I failed to protect my student..
I don't know, but, for sure, he isn't helping out Sasuke just out of sympathy. And who knows, maybe Kabuto will make a late return. I wish he does, acknowledging his mistakes and himself. If everyone is so easily redeemed out of evil perspectives, let Kabuto achieve it, too.
The reason everybody is counting on Orochimaru and Sasuke is because there are no other cards to play. If they don't bring along something exciting, this story is like a dead horse at the moment.
It's simple, the whole "Rinnegan was Madara's" tie in was a major and fail ass pull. It's almost painfully obvious, unless Kishi had it planned out from the start and is just that poor at executing his ideas.
I really do wonder what on earth Sasuke and Oro are up to. If their intervenance turns out being a major disappointment I'll be truly... disappointed.
Have you posted a lot in Naruto before being modded? I can't recall seeing you there that much
Awesome, Yoda is. Difficult to speak like him, is it, but try, I shall.
