LOL, this is a pre-requisite for any ninja worth his salt. Anyone that's had a borderline average lifespan is just fodder. And a happy childhood? WORSE than fodder. If that's possible.Quote:
,It seems like the triangle is quite off now. .
,What I'm actually waiting for is the CAPSLOCK CHAPTER with IZANAMI's activation..
The real reason why Sakura will never reach the level of her teammates: her life is too ordinary, her problems too relatively run-of-the-mill, and her parents are not only alive but they are marvelous.Quote:
Seriously, I can't with Sakura's dad. I really hope that hairstyle is a genetic trait, because I can't think of anything more depressing than future generations of the ninjaverse being bereft of its fabulousness.
The Haruno clan kekkei genkai... Sakurahime Azuma Bunsho: Kabuki Katsura!!
I love how the entirety of the fandom (myself included) assumed Sakura's parents were civilians, then we find out they're ninja. And her father has the best hair ever.
I just remember skimming these chapters yelling at the screen "END ALREADY YOU STUPID FLASHBACK, GET BACK TO THE STUFF THAT WE GIVE A CRAP ABOUT."
I think the only flashback I've been moderately interested in since the start of the war was the
Romeo and JulietKonoha Founders flashback.
A corpse flower actually bloomed for a few hours in my hometown's campus greenhouse this week. I took about 10 minutes out of my day to check it out, it was pretty exciting.
I just thought they were a tall couple who seem to really enjoy shopping together. Pfft.
That he does, that he does. Maybe he uses this?Quote:
Isn't it great how mangaka always like to put the character flashbacks in at the absolute worst times? Big old boss fight --> everybody's getting excited --> this is gonna be awesome --> lol no it's time to interrupt the action to tell you all the stuff about the villain's background that I should have told you a long time ago but waited until now to do so just to fuck up the pacing! hahaha!Quote:
On the other hand I liked the flashback because I'm a huge sucker for depressing tragic backstories, and come on... Orochimaru.
Agreed, that was a good one. I can't get enough of this little starcrossed pair.Quote:
Lucky you! I watched the live video feed on that thing, I was very impressed.
Was the smell everything dreams are made of?
Hey now, lets not blame shampoo for that hair Bloomer. Especially shampoo that certain mods *cough* may or may not use. (Did I buy stawberry or cherry blossom?
Either way clearly Sakura's parents are huge fans of...
It's the only way they could have achieved hair like that. Which kinda makes me realize what a rebel Sakura is. With parents like that the normal look for her would have to be a crazy pompadour or something.
It's also kind of a missed opportunity for providing her with the signature ninjutsu she always lacked. All this time she could have been throwing hair care related techniques at people.
I can see it now....
Sasuke would have gotten struck down by her cowlick-no-jutsu and losses what mental cohesion he had, probably ending up in the fetal position crying.
Madara would have gotten struck with her long range perm-no-jutsu, and spent the remainder of the war aimlessly wandering around the battlefield blinded by his enormous fro.
She could have been devastating.

Yep. Dad's a chunin (only shown in the movie, but Kishi-designed), mom's... uh... presumably a chunin (assuming), but all we've seen of her outside of the movie is filler. As in she's in a filler episode during the war where Konoha gets attacked by a freaking sumo gang.Quote:
I am so sorry for neglecting you.
My summer cold was masquerading as some truly vile pestilence. Things took a turn for the worse and I am just now tottering around with hope for recovery once more.
Any-hoo, I'm online, exaimining the spoilers, and preparing my left pinky for the curtain-raising.
Either way... you smell divine.Quote:
No question! That shit is the bomb.Quote:
Agreed: in the Haruno family, flat, boring hair is the equivalent of skipping class, smoking, and roaring off on a motorcyle while wearing a black leather jacket and a disaffected expression. "What are we going to do?? She's out of control!! It's time for tough love! We need to send her to blow-dry boot camp STAT!"Quote:
Hairstyles, changing the course of history and bringing hope to a devastated world?? What the... Jammin, get out of my head!Quote:
If only... sigh.
And so fitting, considering the genre. Thank goodness I have wonderful characters like Hashirama's Hair, Orochimaru's Hair, and the uber-sinister Madara's Hair to comfort me. Still... what could have been, what could have been.
Filler is great for lulz and OOC screencaps, but there is a limit.
It's that time again...
When you need your chapter summarized in the best kind of letters--ALL CAPITAL LETTERS!--look no further than this week's

This kept me from reading the rest for 7 minutes. I was busy laughing. And it's so funny 'cause I actually imagined this happening, with Bee just staring them expressionless.Quote:
Fodder Ninja #324756 is the true hero of this war. And the true foil to Obito's plans. Because he explained to everyone what happened. I sure wish he was there when Obito got crushed by rocks, so that he could explain to us how Obito survived that.Quote:
I actually though I was the only one who went "WTF" at that.Quote:
