Naruto Feature: Hashirama Senju and His Dream

Hashirama’s Dream for the Shinobi World

Hashirama Senju, the First Hokage (Shodaime Hokage) and the legendary Wood Jutsu User, was Ashura’s reincarnation before Naruto Uzumaki. Kishimoto, Naruto’s creator, made sure that we all understood the importance of Hashirama’s character in the manga series. He was not only Ashura’s reincarnation, but Hashirama was the first shinobi to establish a system that would be the foundation of future peace between shinobi nations and villages. 

The Beginning of a New World

Hashirama Senju, a person with many similarities to Naruto Uzumaki, was an idealistic, compassionate man who wanted all wars to stop since he witnessed many children dying on the battlefield, including his younger brothers. Hashirama never gave up on his dream, unlike Madara Uchiha, and that’s what was needed to set the foundation of peace. 

Personally, I don’t think Hashirama or Madara were the only ones to dream of a world without war. I think many shinobi before and after these two wanted a world without battles and bloodshed, but they gave up on that dream, thinking it was impossible. But Hashirama changed the fate of shinobi forever by never giving up on his dream. 

Can you imagine having to be on the battlefield as a young child? Before you even turned 10 years old? And not living a full life because you died? Or witnessing so many massacres and killings at such a young age? Seeing your loved ones die and get mutilated? I can’t even… no. Just no. Even though Naruto is fiction, I can’t tell you how much it meant that Hashirama decided to create peace and a children-free warzone later in the series.

Naruto Feature: Why I Like Tobirama Senju

Tobirama Senju: A Naruto Character Analysis

Hahaha… Well, Tobirama isn’t the most popular Hokage, but I gotta say, I do like him quite a bit, and he’s one of my favorite Naruto characters (besides his looks, of course xD). I hear and read a lot of negative comments about Tobirama (e.g., he was too harsh, he hated the Uchihas, etc.), so I want to share my thoughts on his character.

Here’s a little about me and what you can expect to read from this post: I know there’s a lot of heat around Tobirama, but I personally found his character amusing and noble in many ways. For me, though, I like to look past the surface and see if I can read deeper into someone’s personality and motives, even if he is a fictional character. So I prefer to not hate on characters without really understanding them. Plus, hate is such a negative emotion, so I’d like to leave it out of my system. What I’ll talk about in this post is Tobirama’s overall character, why I like him, and his flaws. 

Tobirama’s Character Analysis

Before I get into why I like Tobirama, I want to talk about his character and my thoughts on him. Ever since Tobirama was a child, he’s been the more “realistic” and composed one of the two Senju brothers. He tells it like it is, and he balances Hashirama’s overly optimistic personality. Tobirama shared the same dream as his brother and the Will of Fire (the will to protect the village, the children, and the people). 

Though he was composed most of the time, Tobirama had quite a short temper. If he believed you posed a thread to the village, he would automatically go into battle mode, which was shown when Sasuke was deciding if he wanted to protect the village or go on with his revenge. Tobirama didn’t leave any wiggle room, and he didn’t think “Oh, well, let’s see if I can change this guy’s mind and resolve this without violence” like Hashirama would. Tobirama acted on instinct, and I think that was honed when he had to fight in wars most of his life.

Naruto Character Feature: Might Guy

Might-Guy-Naruto

I’ve been on a Naruto nostalgia trip these past couple days, and I’ve been inspired to write more Naruto-related posts here on the blog. I’ll be getting to other topics, too, but I think I’ve been holding all these thoughts in. Even though Naruto ended two years ago, I’m not ashamed to be talking about it still! 😀 

I realized that I didn’t have any great posts about Guy-sensei! After watching and reading Naruto again, I just had to make a post for Guy. He’s too awesome, and he’s one of my favorite characters in Naruto

Naruto Characters: Kakashi’s Character Growth

Kakashi Character Analysis

Ah… even though Naruto has ended, I sometimes revisit the series and watch or read my favorite parts. I can’t help it! I still have some attachment to the series. Although a lot of parts aren’t to my liking, I still liked the series overall. Especially the characters.

During a break today, I was watching Naruto Shippuden (the episodes with Kakashi and Obito fighting), and I was inspired to write this post because 1) I love Kakashi’s character growth (considering what he’s been through) and 2) I love Kakashi as a character (he’s so cool! /kyaaaa). 

Kakashi’s Childhood

Kakashi was known as a child prodigy and his father was an elite Konoha shinobi. Kakashi grew up with an elitist attitude, and he was quite sassy. I mean, just like at him here when he was just a kid about to enter the academy:

Lol... look at Kakashi putting his hands on his hips xD
Lol… look at Kakashi putting his hands on his hips xD

Then his father committed suicide because he was treated poorly by the villagers, and Kakashi changed. He became bitter and emotionless. He believed that the mission comes first, even if it means your comrades die because you choose the mission over them. However, Kakashi once again goes through a transformation when he decides to believe in Obito’s belief that comrades come first.

Kakashi’s Face Revealed…!

I am so late to the party. I think, several weeks ago, Kakashi’s face was revealed in some Naruto one shot or something. WE’VE WAITED YEARS FOR THIS MOMENT, PEOPLE. I think Kakashi’s face was one of the biggest mysteries in the Naruto series, and I’m sure a ton of people were like, “What does Kakashi look like?!” when chapter 700 came out haha

I think a lot of people already know Kakashi’s face by now, but I want to feature it here on my blog. I gotta say, I wasn’t expecting the freckle, but he still looks good fufu

100-Day Challenge – Post #25

I feel like doing a longer, more in-depth post today! I’ve had a great day so far, so I’m in the mood to write a lot. That also means I’ll be able to get a lot of work done today, too, since I’m in a productive mood har har

Today, I want to talk about one of my favorite characters from Naruto – Tobirama Senju. Now, Tobirama gets a lot of bad rap because people think he hates the Uchihas and everything since he used to fight them a lot before Konoha was built. But I have to disagree with a lot of the Tobirama hate out there. I’m actually a huge fan of his, and I’ve even created a fanfic with him in my mind. 😀

Naruto BFFS #3: Itachi and Shisui

Itachi-and-Shisui-Anime-Naruto-Shippuden-Episode-358
They make a good friend pair. :)

After just watching the new Naruto Shippuden episode (Naruto Shippuden episode 358 here), I was really touched by Itachi and Shisui’s friendship. I was also moved by how emotional and gentle both of them were. I’m sad that they’re gone.. well, I’m not completely sure if Shisui is gone; it just shows him falling in the river in the anime, and it didn’t show if he died in the manga either. Anyway, that’s another story.

So, even though it was a filler in a way, I think it’s very accurate to what Kisimoto has in mind for the whole back story with Itachi, Shisui, Kakashi, and Yamato. It was nice to see how caring both Itachi and Shisui are, and I can’t even imagine what it’d be like if shinobi were real in this world. It just seems so painful, especially for Itachi. My goodness. It was an emotional episode. Itachi and Shisui are good best friends. Continue reading Naruto BFFS #3: Itachi and Shisui

Six Funny Moments of Madara and Hashirama

Okay, so, over the weekend, I’ve been totally absorbed in Naruto, and I read through a lot of past chapters of Naruto. Of course, one of my favorite chapters are the ones of Madara and Hashirama’s childhood. Seriously, despite how Madara turned evil and Hashirama became Hokage and they both became adult men, they were so hilarious when they were kids. I’d even dare say they were a little cute. 🙂 So, this is just a random post I wanted to make to share all the funny moments between these two nutcases. I also made one last year in this short post, featuring a funny picture of Madara and Hashirama.

Funny Madara & Hashirama Moment #1 – Stone Skipping:

Shikamaru

Shikamaru — he may look like his dad, but he has Asuma’s spirit! While listening and watching Temari’s fight with Shikamaru, I was reminded that I wanted to write a blog post about him, so here it is!
