I was browsing through the Naruto 693 tag, and I noticed a lot of Naruto fans asked the following question after reading the chapter 693 :
Why does Sakura love Sasuke ? And some of them added : We never got to know why she loved him except for his good looks.
But WHY on earth could she…
I honestly don’t know where this “SS is dead” stuff is coming from. This was literally a rehash of part 1 panel for panel.
Let me show you:
Reevaluation of Team 7’s dreams
Kakashi’s impression of them
Sakura saving Sasuke (resulting in physical contact)
Sakura’s confession to Sasuke
And Valley of the End
There you are, a breakdown of every Important Team 7 moment from start to finish (not counting the chunin exams)
But that is not to say things won’t be different, in fact, they have been different:
Instead of being forced to fight each other
The rookie 9 have been able to willingly fight WITH each other.
Along with the growth of several characters
So no, NS/ASS/ANH can’t claim that things will end up the same or even remotely similar (Sasuke dying/Sakura losing her feelings for him etc) because even from non shipping moments we see that the events that are turning out are “remixes” of part 1 but under better circumstances and with better results and this new chapter isn’t any different
I know how you really want to carry on Itachi’s will and create a world that won’t require making sacrifices like the ones Itachi did.
But that doesn’t mean you have to make the same mistakes he did.
I mean, it’s totally obvious why you put Sakura in a genjutsu that has an illusion of you…
Sasuke succeeded in stabbing Karin and he succeeded in stabbing Naruto but he has never, ever been able to pull off a real attack on Sakura. Even when he was mad and consumed with darkness kishi never let sakura get hurt physically by him. The emotional pain was unavoidable but it wasn’t…
