Wow what a small little club we are!
but yea, I would just like to say I've always wondered, why orochimaru hasn't killed Anko or didnt kill Anko. I mean manga wise, I guess its like whatever, you could say he didnt want the examination to stop and therefore used her as a means of translating that to the others, and also that scence in the forest is a lot more intimate in the anime than it was in the manga,
but anime wise, if you count fillers espicially like when they went into her past and all that I never really understood why he hasnt killed her, and chose instead to just erase her memory, The fillers make it seem kinda like he felt betrayed by her for like looking down on his experiments and the like and therefore he used her as one at least that was my interpretation of it. but yes i know thats filler.
However the ? still stands in my mind.
Could orochimaru, at some point, do I dare say it, have actually cared about Anko...? <3
I know your probably thinking im crazy for that
cannon wise, in both the anime and manga in the forest why not just let her go through with the double snake jutsu and just kill herself. Is he keeping her around like a spare tire/body type thing or maybe he considers her still somewhat of a living experiment or is there something more too it....
the things that make you go hmm.
on a side note, i'll see what I can do about a banner with my very minimal photoshop skills.
