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.

Most Emotional Parts In Naruto Part Two

Most Emotional Moments in Naruto Part Two

All right, I’m back again with the most emotional moments in Naruto! Here’s Part One if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m still going on my nostalgia trip with Naruto, so you’ll most likely see more Naruto blog posts in the near future xD Let’s get started.

16. Young Obito Uchiha’s Death

Despite Obito’s drastic change and him being one of the main causes of the Fourth Great Shinobi War, his young version was much more likeable. Obito was just like Naruto when he was a kid, dreaming of becoming Hokage. But, because he considered himself the black sheep of the elite Uchiha Clan, he worked hard to get noticed by the girl he liked and to beat Kakashi, his opposite and his rival. Before his death, though, Obito awakened his Sharingan and decided to become the person he wanted to be. Then, Obito sacrificed himself to save his friends, and he died an incredibly noble death. I cried. No shame. Seriously. Young Obito Uchiha is one of my favorite characters. Tobi is, too… xD I’m happy Obito was able to become a hero again before he died again. He did a lot of terrible things, but his life shows you can take many paths or take the wrong one but get back on the right one. I think everyone has experienced that, so I’m not going to hate him like most people do.

17. Obito Uchiha’s Hell

When Obito gets wind that Kakashi and Rin are being chased down by shinobi from the Hidden Mist Village, Obito goes out to save them, determined to protect his friends. But, unfortunately, Rin committed suicide on Kakashi’s Raikiri and Obito witnessed it, which activated his Mangekyo Sharingan. He created a sea of blood by killing all the Hidden Mist shinobi, and his rage was one of the most emotional moments for me. Obito completely lost it and activated his Mangekyo Sharingan with Kakashi. That entire scene was pure… emotion. It was powerful. Then, when Obito went to Rin’s dead body, holding her close to him, I lost it. It’s so sad to see a pure-hearted soul like Obito go astray and lose someone he loved. I hate death, and this was the turning point of Obito’s life down to hell. Continue reading Most Emotional Parts In Naruto Part Two
