    I agree about Hinata. She's proof a character doesn't need to be involved in every aspect of the hero's journey to win his heart. Guess that's the best I can say about it in the long run.

    It definitely looks like you had a good time out there! I'm a little envious. Gotta say, I'm partial to the Deadpool photo. I'm kind of a peripheral fan of the guy.

    That was funny about Kishimoto's quip about forgetting what Jiraiya looked like.

    Some of the photos wouldn't show up on my screen but that's probably just loading issues. I'll try looking again at them later.

    BTW I've begun rewatching Inuyasha from the beginning. Wish me luck because I'm going to have to watch it using several different streams and some of the DVDs I own since Netflix only has the first two seasons (why only the first two IDK). Since my most recent memory is of The Final Act, I realized I'd forgotten how evil Sesshomaru really was when he was first introduced. Seriously that Rin girl changed that guy for the better!

    Nice post! It too captures what I feel about how the series ended. Some of what I'm replying to comes from what you said in your post.

    My issue is that nobody wants to actually address and flesh out their situation. All this telling with no showing so that it affects the impact it *could* have had.

    ^This is my issue with some of the anime and manga I watch and read: So much exposition, so little actual showing (note I said some, others do do a beautiful job of showing, I could literally cry - and sometimes I have!). A character can talk about loving/caring about someone until they are blue in the face, if not a single action they take proves this, I think they're hypocrites who don't deserve my respect.

    As for Sasuke, for me, it's not even about deserving a family, it's about why the hell he started one in the first place if he didn't feel able to involve himself in it. Kishimoto has screwed up Sasuke's character irreparably to me because all this does is show Sasuke is a selfish loner who doesn't care for Sakura AT ALL (or Naruto for that matter, but that whole laughable 'bond' between them is all one way: I never felt an ounce of it being the same way on his end as it was for Naruto).

    I'd have to say Naruto giving over more plot time to romance would not make it shoujo in any way. I have read a lot of shoujo, I have watched (even more) shoujo: Naruto was never at risk for going Peach Girl at any point and putting any amount of romance in it would not have done that. There are plenty of manga and anime shounen out there who successfully incorporate romance into the story with little risk of becoming too "unmanly." My favorite manga, Full Metal Panic! Sigma, a very male-oriented story is about the protagonist going through literal hell to to get back the woman he loves from the hands of those who steal her away. Even with this as a main plot point there's no shortage of mech fights, shoot outs, explosions, chase scenes, and mayhem. You know, 'manly' shonen-type stuff. And because the writer has the leads be attracted to each other, he has to show that, and does it beautifully (hugs, hand holding, significant glances, confessions, and eventually, kissing).

    What I'm saying is, if Kishimoto wasn't feeling comfortable writing romance into his story with all that it implies, he should not have included it at all. Readers want to see the characters show that, not just be told it, otherwise going by panels alone, everyone in Naruto is just good friends and nothing more.

    If you think about it, Sakura's desire to be strong and to stand beside Naruto and Sasuke could have stood on its own because that didn't have to do with her attraction to Sasuke. She's still plot relevant even without her feelings for Sasuke motivating her.

    But what am I saying, women belong in the kitchen in the world of Naruto.

    Oh, that is awesome, you got to meet him. What was it like? Did you get to ask him any questions? Details.

    Hey, long time no see. I'm not sure if you check your profile here on Naruto Forums anymore. But today I discovered this and thought you should check it out.

    I still find it interesting so many thought NS was end game. I do agree with what it said about Sakura, unfortunately. Retrospect is a bitch.

    Hi, I'm sorry for being such a bother but I'm just wondering how did it go at the signing , I really hope you don't mind but do you think that there is a chance to ask kishi why sasuke didn't contact and if his mission is finally over, when did he left and why there were no photos, I'm really sorry for being so pushy and if you can't ask him many questions then just why he didn't contact and if his mission is finally over would be fine, sorry for bothering you again with these requests T_T and thank you

    Two hour commute?! I literally can barely drive after an hour behind the wheel, no joke, I am dangerous to drive because I get so powerfully sleepy. Thankfully my husband drives when we go on the longer trips (he doesn't mind - he likes to drive actually - he even has a racing simulator with foot pedals and a steering wheel at home, that is how much he likes driving). What is your tumblr link again? I meant to favorite it. I hardly ever update my lj anymore. I'd like to review some of the anime and television shows I've been watching soon.

    I'm glad you were able to see your dad.

    I apologize for taking so long to respond. Between working every day for five and half hours at the college and working nights at my other job for five hours, I'm usually too exhausted to do anything but crash or spend what little time I have with the husband. I'm taking a week off in September after this just to recup! Thank god it's not like this all year or I wouldn't even have this second job.

    Sorry to hear about your grandmother. My father has been recovering from cancer himself so I get it. Were you able to see your father?

    I headcanon with the best of them, hehe, but fan fics are a bonus. I'd write them myself but those days for me are over. Now it's just my own work I'm invested in churning out.

    How was your trip?
