(I openly welcome 2 years worth of filler before Part 3 finally gets animated)
http://media.tumblr.com/3123fce5b51a...plG1sl845r.pngThe naruto the last movie is not sold out everywhere as they say it is here in japan…there is actually too many seats available for the movie that it is actually sad….For example..i will show you yokohama toho theater and this is for 9:00 to 11:05~ notice how many seats are available? the darken seats are the ones reserved and to be honest i am not surprised at this…also there are many other theaters having people get refunds and if not canceling their ticket reservations because of spoilers and because of hinata. SO…this is one hard evidence i can supply with to fans of hinata out there that no matter what is being said that “many japanese love hinata” well..this ought to clear the air on that.
According to many Japanese people including those that work in movie theaters, there are many refunds being issued or cancelled because people are not happy. The spoilers that were released made people not happy.
I'm laughing, this is what Kishi deserves for selling out and making a movie function around a useless stalker that barely did anything in the manga. This is amazing news.
Karma Kishi, maybe next time you won't have stupid moronic fans dictate the series you want to write. Or if you're gonna go with romantic pairings DEVELOP them!
DON'T CHARACTER ASSASSINATE YOUR MAIN CHARACTER FOR A USELESS SIDE CHARACTER AND A POORLY DEVELOPED PAIRING!
DON'T HAVE A SHOUNEN MOVIE CIRCLE AROUND A ROMANCE THAT WAS NEVER DEVELOPED IN THE MANGA INCLUDING SCENES THAT WERE NEVER EVER REFERENCED IN THE MANGA NOR EVEN SUGGESTED!
Don't have more romance than action in a freaking shounen movie!
It looks like all those threats about people boycotting was legit. Oh well, this is what you get Kishi. Now your series can go die when it was supposed to die many years ago.

Even if the movie is doing bad, I don't think that NaruHina specifically can be attributed to the movie's supposed downfall; I doubt it would've done any better if it was NaruSaku centric for instance.
The reason I don't care to watch the movie aside from the character assassination galore is the fact that the romance is the main part of the movie. No freaking thanks, if I wanted to watch a romance I would. Naruto is not a romance, but this movie is and a poorly written one at that.
The other fact was...
Face the fact it said Suki, not Daisuki. Naruto only had a crush, a perverted and guided by the appereances if you ask me. For romantic feelings and picking hints, by nature, Naruto is like our Satoshi... extremely oblivious and dense. He couldn't pick up Hinata's feelings in Part 1 (well, it isn't like she was totally assertive on part I) and it came to extremes like he believing Kurenai gained weight because of food, but in reality she was pregnant from Asuna's child. Making Naruto dense regarding romantic feelings helped totally to bring up the actual endgame.
"I want to protect that Smile"
That was after Naruto realized in the hospital she was really in love (not having a schoolgirl crush) with Saucekay-koon. He said that because only bringing back the Uchiha back too her would return that smile.
Funny is the fact Kishimoto said "it was a time when he considered Sakura moving on from Sasuke and begin to look Nardo in a romantic way, but he ditched that idea because that would make Sakura a terrible woman".
To finish, a question.
What if the manga's finale endgame was NaruSaku, KibaHina, SasuKarin and ShikaTema? Would fandom be ranting about how retconned and rushed it was?? Or would be more happy than now? And what if The Last only expanded the "development" NS "had" in the manga instead of "retconning" NH like you said?
Satoshi? We bringing in that horrible Pokémon character here now? Ash is an idiot, that's all is need to be said.
Saying Suki to someone would just mean you like them as a friend or as a crush. It's when you go daisuki that you kinda mean it, then you go in your final form and say aishite and really mean you love him or her.
Anyways, you darn NaruSaku shippers! The boat has sunk. NaruHina is canon, and no, Ch700 is NOT a genjutsu. Everyone was freed from Infinite Tsukiyomi, and none of this is someone's dream. The movie is getting a limited theatrical release in Australia in mid Jan, so HOPEFULLY the Blu-Ray doesn't take 2 1/2 years like RTN did.
I do think Hinata is getting Sakura level hate now because she "won" the shipping war, and I can see her being the new Sakura from this point on. As in getting unnecessary hate for this point on. Don't blame Hinata's character for this. It's not like she told Naruto to have fake feelings for Sakura. Seriously though, that is so stupid. I'm not even a NaruSaku fan and I can tell that's crappy writing.
RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
Minor nitpick in that no, I don't think people would be calling retcon (as of the manga's ending, Naruto has no feelings for Hinata or anybody else that need to be erased for him to end up with Sakura). Rushed, though? Absolutely.
I didn't realize I've been apparently lurking on the shipping boards
Though as I've said multiple times before that I give zero F's about shipping (in Shouen especially) I can help but agree that recon was stupid and BS.
As pointed out before it wouldn't have mattered if Naruto "won" Sakura because Sasuke never cared about her from the start, so it being about rivalry is flat out BS.
If Sasuke at any point showed any type of effection towards Sakura then yeah it would make since to be out of rivalry, but he's done nothing but try and kill her. (And seeing as the movie apparently isn't focusing on anything but NaruHina, SasuSaku will forever be a dumb pairing).
It would've been so much easier to just say Naruto got over Sakura and looked into Hinata more and people wouldn't complain nearly as much (except for the NaruSaku fans).
I'm just shocked canon parings can cause such a amusing/headache inducing war.
Oda thank you for keep romance out of your franchise I'd be scared to see how'd that would've had gone.
Why would Sakura be horrible if she moved on from a guy who never supported her...like, ever.
EDIT: Why even see the movie at this point, spoilers have basically given us everything about it anyway http://naruto-lastcountdown.tumblr.c...-kakashi#notes

Aaaara, shounen aren't just fight, fight, ho-yay moments and blood. Romance was neglected so badly on the "fujoshi jump" era because of that "adding bishounen characters in every manga". The Last being shoujo-esque is nothing but one of the final products of the new Shueisha politics about excluding fujoshis from their Shounen jump products.
Please watch this link:
So, for fight and ho-yay purists, you'd better think twice before reading nekketsu mangas, because Shueisha decided to motivate mangakas to create romance subplots in Shounen Jump publications. As for me, i don't care if The Last lacks bloodlust fights and ho-yay/foe-yay moments.
If the movie is apparently doing bad it's probably because of its horrible plot, I doubt shipping would be the main reason with that. I still really don't see why they need to have one of the horrible last minute final villains have living relatives.
The movie isn't even out yet lol and all Naruto movies are boring and they still do well.

I'm not one to defend Kishi's poor writing decisions, but this is probably...The least offensive thing he's done.
Remember the 3rd Chapter? When Naruto realized that he liked Sakura because she wanted acknowledgement...From Sasuke...
Where he tried to be Sasuke with henge...To make him look dumb so that she likes him instead...
I mean really. When his crush was established, it was terribly shallow. I don't think this rivalry thing is that far out. And it doesn't discredit the fact that he came to care for her more as a friend. But romantically, it was pretty meh.
Even with his promise to Sakura, Naruto in Part 2 still had no problem fishing for dates, snooping around the bathhouse, or trying to be Sasuke's friend when he had a knife to the girl's throat. Some food for thought.
Of all the things Kishi has done wrong, to call him a sellout over this seems exaggerated.

That has nothing at all to do with his rivalry with Sasuke, and I really hesitate to say there's anything overly shallow about him having feelings for a person he believes he can empathize with.
