Jdw, you bastard gratz on OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!! posts....
but in all serious all the sasuke hate I think spurs from his attitude, I hate his ego and his mannerism's toward other characters, its just plain ass annoying.
Personally, I don't Consider Sasuke very evil. Sure, He's the premier villain, But considering all that we have seen from both the "bad" guys and "good" guys, Sasuke's pretty straight forward. Sasuke's act of murder is hardly worst then what most ninjas do for A and S rank missions and is nothing compared to experimenting and torturing people. I suppose it all depends on perception.
I wouldn't say just because of an "ass kicking," I'd say it could be more along the lines of people hating Sasuke for intending to kill Naruto, and actualy trying to kill Naruto, as part of a revenge-fueled power grab. You see it one way, others can see it another way, more closely aligned with reality.
If reality is killing a guard makes you Satan incarnate then I'll pass on that form of reality. Naruto was also trying to hurt and blast Sasuke into last week as well during that fight. Does that make Naruto evil too? It seems people are being one-sided with the results of that fight. There is enough blame for both sides don't you think?
Kishi has constantly shown "evil" people like Gaara, Itachi, and Pein with legitimate reasons to justify their behavior. People love Gaara and Itachi even though their atrocities make Sasuke's action a joke. Even Pein's actions of oblitierating the village seems to have been forgotten and people look at him in a good/neutral light. However, people want to lynch Sasuke for anything. Sasuke left the village. Let's lynch him (even if Naruto wanted the opposite). Sasuke tried to capture the Hachibi and failed. Lynch him. Sasuke killed a guard. Lynch him. Sasuke killed the man behind his clan's demise. Lynch him. Sasuke stole an ice cream cone from a little girl. Lynch him.
Sasuke is clearly becoming a very dark character, but the mob's punishment doesn't match the crime yet. People have been screaming for their pound of flesh way before Sasuke did anyting to warrant it. Is this just people's desire to hate a villan or is there really some act that occurred that has made Sasuke irredeemable unlike Gaara or tiachi. Because as of yet I haven't seen anyting that makes him worse than those two.
simple reason for that. Sasuke started out cool and became a douchebag. Everyone else started out as douches and became cool. Of course most people won't like him, he's annoying as hell. Though I must admit that his recent trolling rampage has made a lot more likable, probably for the wrong reasons >_>
what blame for Naruto? He was sent by the hokage to stop a shinobi from going rogue, and he tried to protect Sasuke from evil. Naruto did not try to kill Sasuke.
Sasuke was embracing evil to gain power, abandoning his village to gain power, and tried to kill Naruto to do what? Gain power.
Sasuke did change his mind about killing Naruto though.
Indeed, but he formed the intent and acted upon it. Naruto would be dead if not for Kyuubi's regeneration and Sasuke didn't know that. Just deciding to not kill him later, after forming the intent and trying to complete the act, may not unring that bell for some, and I can understand.
That sasuke is evil is beyond doubt to me. But its also beyond doubt that he just like almost all other villains in naruto, has quite a good reason to be so. I think its a very good writing on part of kishi that he makes me feel like that, unreasonably just-born evils are too simple and too unrealistic. And the closer sasuke got to his revenge the worse he became. Its pretty fantastic. And that many people hate him isn't a bad thing either.these days most villains have gotten flashy and somethings to go 'wow' over. Thats hardly what a villain is supposed to be.
Anyway, I never felt he was interesting from the begining . His "coolness" factor was overshadowed by Kakashi in the first chapters for me, and he was a bit shallow, the unsympathetic, loner kind of guy like Cloud from Final Fantasy or Vegeta from DBZ.
Where the hell are the links to the scans for chapter 499. It's already on Mangastream but a ican't find any links to the new Naruto chapter on Mangahelpers, whats's going on???
We've stopped hosting scanlations/raws, so that's why there's no place to read the chapter here anymore.
