Wow, I finally read the interviews, but it's one that bothers me.
Is it Sakura he wants to write about after Kakashi or Naruto?
Because I have found on other sites saying that it was Naruto and that he forgot about Sakura. :|
So how is it, in the end?
All lies in the end. Either the interview is fake or Kishimoto just tell lies.
I thought that part of the Interview referred to her development at the start of Part 2?
Kishimoto is an accomplished writer of fiction.... particularly where it pertains to interviews.
Don't get me wrong there is nobody (in the world) who wishes he'd pay a little more attention to Sakura. But I have no illusions. I'm probably one of only a handful of fans that still want that, so there is less and less reason for him to put forth the effort.
We Sakura fans are a dying breed, our extinction was caused by toxic waste (such as her role in the plot for the last 2.1 arcs) being poured into her characterization by the tanker truck.
He didn't give too much importance to Kakashi, yet, when he saw his fanbase was growing he started doing that.
Don't get me wrong, I like Kakashi as well, but I hate fan services and stuff like that.
Her role in the overall plot is the same, only that people don't see it. She is a complex character that is not understood by many and her actions are easily misinterpreted.
And the fact that now Kishi has gotten this manga to extremes with the power-levels, it's easier for her to be targeted given the fact that he has 2 of power-houses colleagues (the third being Sasuke).
I'm starting to really regret I have read this manga to be honest. :-_-
But oh well...
My only guess is Sakura's assumed involvement when the story finally gets back to Sasuke. Anything else would seem out of place in my opinion.
Kakashi's fanbase was always huge, so I don't think it was because of his fanbase growing.
Kishi announced a Kakashi year for, what, 4-5 years? :lmao
In the very very beginnings, the fan polls results that I saw were always Naruto and Sasuke on the top.
Dunno, maybe I am a bit harsh, however, even if I like some things about Kishi, some I just find them quite... how should I say it nicely?
Trust me, you are not the only one who finds many things Kishi does lamentable lol.
And many of us were far harsher :hurr
a fundamental question: was it a lie that kishi had replied to the question "who is tobi?" with this answer: "he is indeed madara". that'd piss me off,as I've been sure that he was a part of madara because of that. shame if I had been fooled by a fake interview,but it'd be better than kishi telling lies! :-_-
New interview of Kishimoto, all translation credits goes to takL @NF.
