The Last Naruto Movie – More Character Sketches!

Naruto-Last-Movie-Sketches

A lot has been going on this week, and I was super excited to find out that there are more character sketches released to the public for the last Naruto movie! We now have Temari, Lee, Choji, Tenten, and Gaara! Super cool.

Gaara-Naruto-Last-Movie

So, Gaara has flatter, spikier hair and a smaller gourd. He’s gotten a bit taller, too! I’m not totally sure about his new look, but it might be a bit different when he’s animated. Continue reading The Last Naruto Movie – More Character Sketches!

Naruto Chapter 663: Absolutely

Review of Naruto Manga Chapter 663.

Again… another chapter of a dragged out scene from the war. It didn’t quite give me any suspense, either, despite Gaara talking about how Minato’s Kyuubi would be able to save Naruto and some mystery person is going towards Sasuke. However, I was quite surprised that Sakura gave Naruto CPR ninja style. She just cut up his chest and gave him mouth-to-mouth! Sorry to be such a fangirl and cheeseball but… oOOooOoOOOooOOOOooOoOoO! It just looks like a kiss, okay?! I can’t help but think that this is some sort of hint to the future of Naruto’s and Sakura’s relationship… We’ll see, I suppose. I like that Sakura had a flashback of Naruto’s dreams and goals when he was younger and how she’s going to not let him die at all. For me, this part was really refreshing for me because it’s like a message saying, “Hey guys, I won’t let Naruto die! Don’t cry!” har har.

Life As A Jinchuuriki

What I find most interesting about the lives of a Jinchuuriki is how Kisimoto presents them. For instance, Killer Bee grew up always rapping, dancing, and being in high spirits. He knew what was happening around him. He knew that people were looking down on him, isolating him. But, he still held his head high, still rapped, and still lived happily. I think it’s due to the Raikage being there for Killer Bee since they became “the ultimate tag team”.

Naruto Character Clothings

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have this thing with anime/manga clothing that characters wear. I guess it’s just the fashion-conscious side of me that notices outfits, even in fiction. It’s just how I think, I suppose. One of the clothing that I would love to have in my closet is Gaara’s shirt in the first part of Naruto.

Naruto Fanfic: A Jinchuuriki’s friend, A Lost Memory Pt. 2

*** Felt like writing part two today since it’s been playing in my mind a lot, so here it is! ***

Darkness began to envelope the sky while stars were sprinkled across it, making the darkness seem more friendly and inviting. The cool breeze rustled the leaves as Samire, Saitou-sensei, Shiro, and Ryu skipped from tree branch to tree branch.

“Five hours of this… Are we getting closer to Konoha?” Shiro asked with an exhausted edge to his voice.

“Whaaat? You call yourself a shinobi when you can’t even sense Konoha about five minutes away from where we are?” Samire rhetorically asked Shiro with a teasing tone.

“You’re lucky I’m tired, Samire…” Shiro grumbled and glared at Samire. His golden eyes shined brightly even in the dark, reminding Samire of a wild, nocturnal animal hunting at night. Samire chuckled and continued looking ahead, waiting for Konoha’s entrance gate to appear before her. Continue reading Naruto Fanfic: A Jinchuuriki’s friend, A Lost Memory Pt. 2

Gaara

Today, I want to speak about one of my favorite characters in Naruto: Gaara.

When Gaara was first introduced in the anime, I was intrigued by his character’s personality because I wanted to know why he was so… cold. I knew there was something more to him than meets the eye. When Kisimoto reveals Gaara’s past, it was such a contrast to how he was during the Chuunin exams. I cried so hard when I saw his past — it was just heart-breaking and, even though both Gaara and Naruto were Jinchuuriki, I believe Gaara went through more pain since he actually had family members, but, besides Yasahmaru, they left him alone and his father even tried to assassinate him many times. When seeing Gaara as a child, I just felt like I wanted to be his friend and be nice to him, unlike the villagers. Continue reading Gaara
