The Sakura and Akatsuki endings are what seem most interesting to. My NaruSaku self is pissed. Damn it, Kishi!

Wow. Yeah, Kishimoto left behind some characters unpaired, didn't he! I can't wait for them to demean their characters even more! I wonder if Gaara will marry TenTen and Konohamaru will pair up with--ffs, idk, Salad?

= ___=

tbh I don't even know why he's bothering with insisting on this BS ending. after his sexist comments, I doubt any respectable fans left would bother.

The best of the manga ending is all the little cry babies Laughing

Thanks Kishimoto.

I just hope that the novels will explain what happened to Orochimaru, Kabuto, Juugo, etc...

Viz doesn't always do the tie-in novel thing, but I'm sure they will for this series.

Uh...and exactly what 'sexist comments' are you referring to? I don't remember hearing anything of the sort.

I really hope we get these released over here, but I'm betting it's probably pretty unlikely - Viz hasn't had the greatest track record with releasing light novels.

Unless we beg Yen Press or something.

About the comments, I think she's referring to Kishi admitting he being a troll by drawing parallels to Sakura and Kushina, which NaruSaku fans really latched on too. I think it's pretty funny, and I don't care about that kind of stuff lol.

I do hope we see Sakura and Sarada train together or something, no doubt it'll elaborate on Sakuras relationship with Sasuke, but I hope it's more than that.

Actually, they've already realized one of Jiraiya's novels. "Do-Konjo Ninden" (the one good book he wrote, which was spoiler[inspired by Nagato, and whose protagonist Naruto was named after]) did become a real book.

Would Yen Press be allowed to though? Though I guess Viz could do a co-licensing thing with them or something perhaps. It'd be nice.

I saw those particular comments, but...I...don't really see how they're sexist, at all. That doesn't even fit the current use of 'sexist', much less the textbook/traditional definition. :/

Actually I think it was the (paraphrasing) "...if Sakura were to suddenly end up loving Naruto after chasing after Sasuke for all this time, I think that would make her a terrible woman..." statement.

Personally, I think you're mileage will vary if trying to call this statement sexist. The argument is there but to me it also reflects on Sakura's character itself; that its not written particularly well in the first place.

Can you blame them? All the development they read was swept under the rug.

So they are publishing a Light Novel, to fill in the gap from the movie, to fill in the gap from the manga
