The Last: Naruto the movie failing in Japan? Japanese fans cancel their ticket reservations for the movie?

Long time no talk, eh? I haven’t been that much commenting around the movie because given its apparent contents, everyone including me can’t seem but to feel absolutely disappointed with the ending of these 15 years of Naruto.

The Last: Naruto the movie seems to be nothing more than a bad Sailor Moon rip-off romance between Naruto and Hinata, despite the author pointing towards Naruto and Sakura all throughout his 15 years of manga context.

At the end of it, apparently NaruHina and SasuSaku are the end pairings we got. Many fans around the world have expressed their dissatisfaction with this and apparently, in Japan, the all-promised NaruHina fairy tale fails to bring fans to the finale… Fans that have reserved tickets for The Last: Naruto the movie apparently have been cancelling their tickets reservation and many of the seats of Japanese theaters get emptier and emptier according to a Japan resident. :)

the-last-naruto-the-movie-screen1-kamiooka-kanagawa-prefecture

Kamiooka: Kanagawa Prefecture ; Gray chairs: reserved seats ; White chairs: unreserved/free seats.

Apparently in Kamiooka: Kanagawa Prefecture, as we see, only a few number of seats seem to be reserved (gray chairs), while a higher number seems to still be available.

Same seems to be the case with Nihonbashi Tokyo, where apparently people with VIP statuses sit during premiers so we can draw the conclusion that maybe here is where the Naruto producers will be, along with Kishi & co.?

the-last-naruto-the-movie-nihonbashi-tokyo-screen-2

Nihonbashi Tokyo; Pink chairs: VIP reserved seats ; Gray chairs: reserved seats; White chairs: unreserved/free seats.

Likewise Kanawaga, as we can see, the number of unreserved/free seats greatly outmatches the reserved along with the VIP ones.

Japanese fans likewise fans all over the world seem to not be welcoming with open arms The Last: Naruto the movie in Ichihara Chiba either.

the-last-naruto-the-movie-ichihara-chiba-screen-3

Ichihara Chiba; Gray chairs: reserved seats ; White chairs: unreserved/free seats.

As observed, in Ichihara Chiba, likewise the other two instances, the high number of unreserved/free chairs seems to be greatly outnumbering the reserved ones, according to the images.

Despite being marketed as highly successful in Japanese media, in reality, The Last: Naruto the movie seems to be doing very bad as no matter how much Kishimoto together with Studio Pierrot calls the fans out to the movie, given its marketing and the fact that the whole cast was pushed back for Hinata to have her love story with Naruto and despite NaruHina and SasuSaku fans being seemingly enough to cover-up this disaster of an ending, the collective voice of the Naruto fandom tells us one thing: no one liked the apparent NaruHina and SasuSaku ending and Kishimoto along with Studio Pierrot’s marketing ploys aren’t welcomed.

Fans all over the world that have been following this manga for more than a cute love story cannot help but feel not only disappointed but also betrayed given the contents of the manga up to chapter 698 given the bad reviews that this ending receives underneath all the loud voices of those who “enjoyed” the final two chapters and the supposed plot of The Last: Naruto the movie. Maybe it’s because everyone expected for Naruto to finally get to conquer the heart of the girl who he has loved all his life as the manga shown us, because of her beautiful fighting spirit and not because of a childish rivalry with Sasuke like the plot of The Last: Naruto the movie seems to imply? Maybe, because, in the end, all that everyone expected without much fuss and over-exaggerated romance would’ve been a simple moment like this:

After all, given that Kishimoto gave us something like this:

narusaku-cpr-kiss-of-life-chapter-663

 

One could only expect, seeing how much it meant for Sakura that Naruto should be alive to fulfill his dream, seeing this all-encompassing  love of hers… it’s just absolutely beautiful and could have kept being so… until The Last: Naruto the movie along with chapter 699 and 700 came. But oh well…

Interesting fact, nevertheless, with Japan’s real reaction not what they promote in the media, now, as we move closer to the grand opening of the final story.

Therefore with these being said, I bid you laters my darlings!

Chatte

Your sample size is ridiculous. These pictures are just for the 6th of December alone. I’m hitting up the website and I’m seeing sold-out screenings from the 7th to the 12th across various cinemas.

As an artist and someone who has worked with a range of animators, designers, and the like, how dare you wish financial misfortune upon the people who worked on this film. Animators aren’t all ardent fans of what they’re working on, and they sink a lot of their time, energy and talent into what they work on. For you to suggest they not earn anything from that is downright disrespectful. They’re not all ‘Naruhina’ fanboys; some are just doing a job. Shame on you for undermining the general artistic integrity surrounding Naruto just for the sake of your petty whims.

I’ve been perfectly willing to let you lot vent your spleen for a while over this, as I’ve seen as just being part of a coping mechanism. People have have a right to criticise things and that’s okay. Everyone is emotional because something they’ve invested a lot of emotion into reading has come to an end, and that’s fine. Narusake fan arts? Cool, keep doing that. Shinachiku? What ever helps you feel better, sure. But the amount of bitter, vindictive rubbish some people are spewing is pathetic. Threatening Kishimoto and his assistants? Not on. Demanding like a petulant child that he change the ending or make an alternative one? Not okay. Wishing them death, illness and misfortune? Even worse. Whilst you personally may not have been involved in any of the more drastic movements, you rally these people and they get the message that all this bullshit is okay. I’m yet to read ONE sane argument against the Last that isn’t motivated by shipping- anything at all that is based on logic and not emotion.

When it all boils down to it, you’re wasting your time analysing and re-analysing a SHONEN manga. It’s not Charles fucking Dickens. IT’S A SHONEN MANGA. Something created to be read for enjoyment without sacrificing too much brainpower. Just simple, stupid fun. Why not move on to something that actually IS meant to be read with as much serious thought?

However, given how you’ve included a picture of a girl giving cardiopulmonary resuscitation to her dying best friend and claimed it to be evidence of your ‘ship’…I don’t know how much of this is going to sink in. Whatever floats your goddamn boat, kids. Good evening to you, and stop all being lying, vengeful, malicious dicks.

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    If we’re so malicious, vengeful and lying dicks why is it that those pictures show something else? And deal with the fact that I have all the right in the world to express my opinion. Cheers!

      Well said to misscake btw just to make that clear lol.

    It isn’t an insult to say that a movie generating this much bad attention might have the chance of being bad. It’s the same if I see a really sick cat on the side of the road and say it might die. Sure, the cat isn’t dead yet, but there’s a good chance it might, and when it does I’ll be there to scoop it up………Because lunch……….

    And also, if this story is just simple and stupid fun, without taking much thought to enjoy, then what are you implying it’s fans are then? Simple and stupid?

    I find that very shallow and penurious of you……..

    Now leave me be so I can enjoy twirling around in this office chair and eating this dead cat I found.

    Julian H White (3 years ago)

    Hah, all the insulting towards Kishi are well deserved. Hope he gets it in his face for ruining a great manga like that. Hop he will get his first replys how shitty this movie was after the 6th.

    Kishi is nothing more then a troll that thinks its fun to screw and insult a fanbase.

      petr (3 years ago)

      OMG, kid, I am glad that manga ended it was total mess, 4th war was lame – Obita->Madara->Zetsu->Kaguya->Sasuke – stupid as #$%, Madara should have been the only “GOD” and he should have been absolute badass antagonist. The pairing NaruHina was CRYSTAL CLEAR from episode 1, jesus…

        Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

        Crystal clear? Tell that to Junko Takeuchi.

          Ahnaf Tahmid (2 years ago)

          vwry well said chatte… it is so true that the last movie is a 100% flop. kishi has two choices in hand… either he chooses the last movie to correct it or destroy his 15 years of work for 1 shitty movie and a couple of chapters. if people ever disbelieve that naruto flopped, just tell them to check the movies ratings according to japanese web… IT IS 2.83 out of 10 LOL!!!! well my tears didn’t go to waste gladly….. thats what someone gets to mess up things like this and breaking so many hearts…..

    Lori (3 years ago)

    Honestly, you need to shut the fuck up. Nobody fucking told you to click on her blog in the fucking first place. She doesn’t have to like the movie, and she can wish for its failure all she wants. Its HER BLOG. If you don’t like what she says, don’t even read it! Stay on your side of the fandom! Is that so damn difficult for you NaruHina fans to fucking do?
    Even if she does hate on the ending, those animators are still foing to get paid and will stoll be able to provide bread for their dinner tables so quit with the crying.

    I don’t even understand why you’re bringing up what the minority NaruSaku shippers havedone to Kishimoto. That has nothing to do with Georgiana and you meed to go and preach that to the ones who WERE doing that, not here and not to her. You even mentioned it yourself, she wasn’t involved in any of that immaturity so there was no point in bringing that up here. It’s as of you’re trying to use that against her for being in the fandom that she is in. New flash sweetheart, every fandom has a couple of bad apples in it. People in the NaruHina fandom aren’t exactly saints either. They have threatened to protest against Kishi for not making their ship happened, they have joked about abortion and rape against Sakura etc.

    “It’s a SHOUNEN not Charles Dickinson”

    What rubbish. Nobody is expecting a friggin manga artist to be as good as Shakespeare, but they expected him to at least have proper writing. Expecting proper writing does not mean you have expectations that they’re some kind of renaissance author, they only want the material to make sense. And as a successful manga, he should’ve taken some key pointers to proper writing if his material is POPULAR and LOTS of people will be investing their time and money into it! They’re not expecting Charles Dickson material, they’re expecting him to have common sense! Be reasonable! He literally made Naruto look like a jerk! Only going after a female because she was a prize to be won in competition? Seriously?

    I guess you should be mad at 90% of the Japanese Naruto fandom as well because “The Last” has been harboring plenty of hate from japanese fans. Tickets are sold out because they have a non refundable policy! Of course its gonna be sold out if they cannot return the tickets, and plenty are not planning to watch it because of Kishi’s interviews and the leaks!

    Kadio (3 years ago)

    Exactly. Thank You. But Naruto is actually a serious series

    Azsenel (2 years ago)

    This is true. But as fans AND costumers we have the right to voice our own options so buzz off. If we don’t like it. WE DON’T LIKE IT. Simple as that. I know they put hard work and dedication of months and hours to make this time but it was a failure in my opinion.

Zeo (3 years ago)

There’s something I’d like to know. Which spoilers, specifically, do the recent previews appear to match? So the match the spoilers from the people who said it was only a 30 minute preview, or do they match the spoilers from people who said they saw the whole movie?

Also, did you read the message about my fan mail idea?

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    I did, sorry for not being able to respond yet. They match the people who say they saw the whole movie but also the ones with the screening, what I think is that they mistake it for the screening given both of them the movie as well as the screening event took/takes about 2 hours. :)

Elkas (3 years ago)

Nice post my lady. If this true then what i fear its gonna happen. I always knew from the very first spoilers they release. The way that all the spoiler up till now is all about naruhina is a bad move, they should have know beside naruhina theres narusaku, narusasu, and non shipper. They not promoting this movie i think[i dont know they realize it or not] they slowly digging their own doom. I always imagine the day the movie out, the theater gonna be empty, they go back to the studio and said “hey no one buys our merchandise”. I knew it when the interview about sakura is terrible is she moved on from sasuke, i instantly think “well they reaaaly dare to go this far cross some line they should not” and then release those disgusting image on the moon, they finally seal their own fate by saying “naruto crush for sakura is just rivalry” and then “sakura is like sister to naruto”. I can’t help but think “what is so special with hinata anyways? is her voice acting can seduce people or what? for money? realy?”. Because what i see in the way they promote this movie is they slowly destroying themself. 12 years manga, why you build eifel tower for 12 years just to crush it to the ground in the end?. Now what i realy afraid is if narusaku happen in the end of this movie those naruhina fans gonna said “narusaku fans threatning kishi to not buy the merchandise and not watch it in the theater”. Narusaku need to happen because thats the logic end to naruto even some naruhina fans [who have logic] said they dont like narusaku but its the most logical pairing. Now they release naruto with someone in SECRET lol realy? after that naruhina moon kiss image why do you need to release naruto holding someone but not show who? well regardless. My lady can i ask you a questions. Do you still believe narusaku not going to happen in this movie or you still believe it will happen?

Unknown (3 years ago)

To misscake:

It is shonen but what about naruhina stuff isn’t it more likely a shoujo? Naruhina naruhina naruhina everywhere … I have even read some comments from naruhina fans, that even though they’re naruhina but isn’t it too much that all they’re posting are about naruhina that they forgot what really naruto is.

naruto (3 years ago)

so the movie is failing ? good . they might as well make a new movie with ns ending just so they make money again . gosh.

    Mat (3 years ago)

    Oh fucks sakes. Can’t you think of anything better to do and say? You think Chatte is all knowing just because she has these charts and statistics and theories. Well guess what she’s wrong. Her info is biased, was later shown to be wrong, and she decided to only post the information that suited her needs for this argument. But hey, that’s the media for ya. Putting in only what they know that will help prove their point so they don’t seem like they are wrong.

    It’s like the whole Emmy Watson and JK Rowling interview. Magazines and other media posted how JK regrets not putting Hermione together with Harry while in reality she said no such thing. What she said that part of her thinks Hermione could have been with Harry she didn’t regret it and knew that while both Hermione and Ron would have their ups and downs they would ultimately they would be ok. However the media decided, “Nah, let’s alter bit of wording and leave out some details and make more money than with the whole story.”

    This is the same thing that Chatte is doing. She says she’s all about facts but truthfully she’s doing the opposite. Doesn’t give all the details, and decides to spin the truth to her advantage. GET OVER IT! Sakura and Naruto didn’t get together, move on with your lives and accept the truth. She’s says that the reason why people are cancelling is because they’re NaruSaku fans. Where’s the proof? Where’s the facts? Answer is she’s got none. It could very well be simply that theatre had an off day, or the spoiler release that shows the ending. So don’t try to spin this off because they are NaruSaku fans, you have no proof other than biased statements.

    Grow up.

      Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

      Congratulation on missing the point, what can I say…?

      Vic-San (3 years ago)

      You do know that Dec 6 is a Saturday and for theathers not to be sold out this close to the venue date is bad don’t you lol..

      Vic-San (3 years ago)

      Also you mention HP and you know that thru out the story Gingly is only portrait as fan girl of how Harry this miraculous magic prodigy which in essence he was nothing but a copy of a prodigy child..that is was luck and fear that made him that cause of Voldermort fear of being defeated.. Hermoine was always with Harry pushing him to go the extra mile.. now this only speculation but would it be that most fell for that couple may be cause Emma and Daniel had a chemistry or a thing going behind cameras..that worked well on camera they were not actors but kids pull from school to fulfill roles as they evolved.. Regardless the end pairing did not made sense..because simple no chemistry between actors and how the characters were presented over the 7 books.. now we got a story being told for 15years and on the last a mention of a new romance not well portrait but pushed by things that were not part of the original story line..

      While NS was perfectly established in chapter 3 HN was established 404 chapters later and badly build over 296 chapters why cause we were still being fed NS in the important moments where it counts.. if HN don’t see that they are blind..

        Mat (3 years ago)

        Don’t try to play innocent Chatte, you’re far from it and you know what you did. Your point is clear as day and you have no way of defending it but with biased info and half truth.

        NaruSaku was one-sided. Not once did Sakura think of Naruto that way. Sure Naruto loved Sakura but ultimately he knew that she would only ever love platonically. It’s been clear as day since Part 1, the stuff that happened in Part 2 were simply humorous and contradictory but you guys decided to see it as such.

        I’d like to think Naruto did surpass the older generation, unlike Obito and Jiraiya who never got the girl because they weren’t interested in them, Naruto learned from their mistakes and moved with his life.

        Also the whole Emma and Daniel chemistry thing has none thing to do with Harry and Hermione. Sure such emotions can appear that way and can make it look good for the movie, but it never actually happened during the book.

          anonymous (3 years ago)

          I don’t know anything about harry potter but i’ve slept through enough harry potter movies to have the opinion that harry and hermoine is nothing like narusaku. If anything narusaku seems more like inuyasha and kagome or chichi and goku (if naruto the last would pull off narusaku like I think it would).

          JS (3 years ago)

          Typical blind naruhinatard, fuck off already

      Tam (3 years ago)

      Dude, it was a Japanese fan who posted these images in the first place. I’ve been following her on tumblr because she always posts a lot of things about Japan and It’s things and she’s pretty neutral towards pairings in her personal tumblr, because even though she’s a NaruSaku shipper, her husband is a NaruHina shipper. Guess what? She was the one taking about fans trying to get refunds and fans getting pissed about being lured into watching it because of Sasuke and Kakashi.
      Seriously, grow up. This is not a lie, you’re just being childish because that’s not NS the only part of fandom founding this ending ridiculous shojo crap. (And scratch it, even Sakura Card Captors ending was better than it)

mel (3 years ago)

lol you realize SasuSaku is the most popular hetero couple right? And Hinata is the most popular female character? And people are thrilled with Naruto finally having a happy ending with a family? If anything people are upset there is not enough of SasuSaku, not that NS didn’t happen…which nobody actually likes.

Anyway, you are consistently wrong and delusional so I’m sure you are this time too.

    awesome woman (3 years ago)

    Actually narusaku was popular, don’t state things because your fandom doesn’t like them. They have narusaku blood drives and conventions and narusaku day. Where’s Hinata? Probably behind a tree.

    Yuki (3 years ago)

    What does a popularity of a pairing ave to do with anything. And how is she being delusional?

    You see the screen, you see the picture. Fact remains is that this movie isn’t filling up. Know why? It’s because naruto lost it’s fans in general. Not because a pairing didn’t happen, but because the plot became boring, and generic so they moved on the other things example, attack on Titan.

    If you still want to call her delusional, why don’t you go search Toho Japanese theater and see for yourself.

uh (3 years ago)

Yea there’s no way anyone canceled because of:
– juvenile plot
– the movie being about moon people
– barely any Sasuke
– no SasuSaku
– disservice to NaruHina
– real life (work, events, family, etc)

It’s clearly ALL because everyone is upset that it isn’t about NaruSaku. Totally. 100% .

Not sure what you’re trying to prove by cherry-picking random theaters that you know nothing about and saying “look, they’re empty because Japan loves NaruSaku!!!” Maybe those theaters are unpopular. Maybe there are better ones elsewhere. Maybe those ones are more expensive, smaller, dirtier, in less convenient locations, etc etc etc… When did tickets go on sale for each location? How big are ticket pre-sales normally for Naruto movies this far in advance? How big are ticket pre-sales normally for December releases this far in advance? For each location? How many tickets were sold and how many were canceled? Were any actually canceled or are you just assuming every empty seat is a cancellation? You need all of that information to control for other factors. Then of course, the “why”. This is in no way “proof” of anything because there are a ridiculous number of flaws in your argument. It’s entirely baseless.

Stop trying to drag the Japanese fandom down to your level.

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    I didn’t say that it’s clearly because all people are upset that it isn’t about NaruSaku. But hey, I guess that’s what you understood from it. :)

      uh (3 years ago)

      Did you forget what you wrote?

      ” Maybe it’s because everyone expected for Naruto to finally get to conquer the heart of the girl who he has loved all his life as the manga shown us, because of her beautiful fighting spirit and not because of a childish rivalry with Sasuke like the plot of The Last: Naruto the movie seems to imply?”

      Right from your post.

      You are claiming that people canceled their tickets and sales are poor (unfounded claims anyway…where are your legitimate sources?) because they thought NaruSaku was going to happen.

      Anyway the fact that you completely avoided the rest of my points just proves that you have no defense.

        Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

        Ok, let me take it on turns here, to respond to you word by word because apparently you’re incapable of understanding where I’m pointing at here.

        So:
        “Did you forget what you wrote?”

        -> No, I very much remember and can read what I wrote every time now, don’t I?

        ” Maybe it’s because everyone expected for Naruto to finally get to conquer the heart of the girl who he has loved all his life as the manga shown us, because of her beautiful fighting spirit and not because of a childish rivalry with Sasuke like the plot of The Last: Naruto the movie seems to imply?”

        Right from your post.

        -> Exactly! Right from my post. Let’s look a bit at what this movie seems to be in terms of Naruto and Hinata and Naruto and Sakura and what it tries to do? Basically putting Hinata-sama princess herself in Sakura’s shoes from personality to confidence to everything else Sakura has ever done, therefore the movie itself points towards this versus situation between NaruHina and NaruSaku, ergo the reference and my post and the reason I said what I said.
        Yes, they are trying to put Hinata in Sakura’s shoes, when few weeks before this awful ending, Kishimoto has drawn Hinata falling flat-face because of a rock with her Byakugan activated mind you, after abandoning her team immediately (I thought the lesson was to never do that but anyway, not my business), and all she did was pray to a dead Neji to take care of Naruto for her not because she couldn’t be there to do it herself, not once I heard her thoughts saying take care of Naruto, he has a dream to complete and all that, you know, while Sakura was shown giving her ALL so that Naruto can stay alive and come meet his dream, not pray to dead people and Gods and give up that easily, because “oh, but chakra exhaustion!”, poor Hina-bby! NO! Sakura was exhausted herself as well after healing an entire army of people and having her chakra drained by the tree so don’t even think to give me that excuse!
        So, while Hinata bunny was falling flat on her face, as Kishimoto wanted her to, Sakura was holding Naruto’s heart and locking her lips with his so she can be his literal heart until you know, he got back his not-so-baby-bijuu-pet Kurama (♥ chibi Kurama melts my heart ♥)

        So yeah, maybe that’s why I’m referring to it, exactly as I said in my initial post! In terms of NaruHina vs NaruSaku, that’s what people expected, deal with it!

        “You are claiming that people canceled their tickets and sales are poor (unfounded claims anyway…where are your legitimate sources?) because they thought NaruSaku was going to happen.”

        -> I’m not claiming anything. Congrats for missing the very-well many times used, repeatedly I might add: APPARENTLY!

        Also, congrats on missing the “MAYBE” part on the other thing you addressed.

        Anyway the fact that you completely avoided the rest of my points just proves that you have no defense.

        -> Anyway, the fact that I “completely avoided” to go in detail with every aspect is because first of all, you didn’t read the article correctly, so why should I tie my head with you if it doesn’t hurt? As for the sources, what, you can’t see the images and check for yourself since I gave names and all? Besides the fact that this can easily change, since at the time I wrote what I wrote that was the situation and it can always change but duuh,
        it’s not my fault you don’t understand what I’m saying and neither my duty to teach you how to read correctly.

        Thank you, have a good day!

anonymous (3 years ago)

After seeing the individual naruto volume sales for 2014 I also had sort of “connected the dots” about this eventually happening but didn’t want to post it myself because of being called “hateful” or whatever. Not saying that you don’t have your reasons. Posterity is first reason that comes to mind. We’ve all been waiting to know what’s the alleged surprising conclusion. The fuji tv website has been promoting their interview to be released on the 13th by saying that naruto fans will be shocked and not dissappointed.

In every group there’s always vocal minority so it would be cool to find out which one actually is the vocal minority. About the popularity polls: they only consist of the people that actually go to the trouble of voting. It’s like in elections, not necessarily the person that most agree with gets elected. With sakura most people were probably like I was: we assumed that she’s the most popular female character and didn’t see a need to make a fandom out of her.

These people unless they have millions of dollars to buy millions of copies of naruto products won’t be able to do much. This is real democracy. People vote with their wallets.

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    Well, when you were among the first three most sold-out manga and you drop in sales about the 6th, it kinda does tell you a thing. Naruto has been slowly but surely, sadly, dropping in sales after the Pein Arc. The Jinchuuriki confinement one saved a lot given that Kishi introduced Naruto’s mother, Kushina, however, as soon as the war started, it all went downhill, sadly. And we can see and feel these consequences overall in the fandom and not only. :)

Christopher Rodriguez (3 years ago)

Good, this would prove that Kishimoto didn’t do it for the money and did it because he chose Naruhina.

    Yuki (3 years ago)

    Studio Pierrot is the one whose doing it for money. They were trying to bank off from mizuki nana’s fame.

Charlie (3 years ago)

hahahaha do you realise that NARUHINA was NEVER fanservice? because most in japan are NARUSAKU fans? lol yall dont have enough excuses so all this time yall did go around and say “kishimoto did it because of fanservice” guess what? HE doesnt a fuck about what you ship or what I ship. He wanted naruhina, and he did it. lmao

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    He clearly wanted so much NaruHina when he showed Hinata falling flat on her face while Sakura held his hand. Indeed, that was so clear to me!

      DemonSlayer (3 years ago)

      @Chatte Didn’t they have her fall flat on their face so team 7 would be the only ones directly fighting Madara?

        DemonSlayer (3 years ago)

        Her*

    Elias (3 years ago)

    Agreed. Good point, charlie.

    Lando40 (3 years ago)

    This is so true on many levels. Kudos.

    Chun-yan (3 years ago)

    If Kishimoto wanted/ supported NH, why would he have Naruto ignore her confession during the Pain arc? Why would her largely ignore her and give her less panel time than a minor character? Why give Sakura such an important role and loads of power but have H. as a failure even by the end (no new jutsu only she can do, falling flat on her face and not helping Naruto, just repeating scenes)? Why have her just as shallow as part 1 S with no development? (To facilitate this point going by the MANGA and thus, initial intentions rather than rubbish fillers in the anime; she knows nothing about N, made no effort to help him when he was younger and alone and provided no support, obsessed over him rather than helping her team mates (chunin K v N and the medicine) and abandoned everyone just for N (Pain) rather than help those around her.) S at least grew and developed and was given a larger role as not just a fangirl but an important member of the Leaf. So the idea that Kishi liked NH more is a baseless and, in my opinion, unfounded assumption. APPARENTLY he actually favours NaruSasu which seems like a more logical end rather than NH or NS.
    I am not an avid shipper, just a shounen fan who read Naruto for the emphasis on BONDS not crazy love obsessions and I’m not bashing, I used to like H and hate S. Now though I can see H is a terribly developed character and so is the NH fanbase whilst S outgrew her pathetic part 1 role and became something more.
    Sorry this is so long

At first, congrats for the patience with these blind fans. And thank you to share the information. Is the proof that our angry isn’t about the couples. Is about lack of development.

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    Exactly. I, personally, made a NaruSaku reference here only in the context of the whole NaruHina vs NaruSaku and what the manga portrayed when it came to these two girls and their relationship with Naruto, however, it’s not just about NaruHina and NaruSaku. It’s how Kishimoto and Studio Pierrot seems to have ruined every single important bond in order to give it all to baby Hinata-sama. What the actual hell, really?
    They try it to make it now as if Hinata is more important to Naruto than Sasuke! FFS, NaruSasu is that one bond that no one tops, no matter our shipping preferences, yet Kishi and Pierrot do this? What the actual hell?
    No wonder that actually the tickets don’t sell as good as they make it sound. :)

      Steven (3 years ago)

      Actually it’s selling quite well in several cinemas in japan. Most of them have already sold out tickets & most of the japs doesn’t even order the tickets from the net.

    Elias (3 years ago)

    In despair to justify and mask, in order to make a more valid point rather than judge as someone who is by the core bitter that narusaku didn’t happen. It is too obvious from what you have written it is all about your narusaku obsession.

Sas (3 years ago)

Thumbs up for this!
Kishi should know, that this End of the Manga and this Movie is hated by most of the fans. I`ve saw, that the three most popular Pairings of japanese Peolpes are 1. Kakashi x Iruka, 2. Sasuke x Naruto and 3. Kakashi x Naruto. SasuSaku and NaruHina are on Number 7? 8 i guess? Ore less? And this should be the most popular pairings? I really think that Kishimoto can`t read and also can`t use google. And what did he get? Millions of disappointed fans.

    Elias (3 years ago)

    Most fans? You are not speaking for me, my wife, my father nor my elder brother who have been following naruto more than a decade. Rofl, where did you get that? Normally, the significant minority is always the loudest. But assumming your statement is 100% right, then kishi did a good job and stick to himself and his decisions, regardless what the majority wants.

      Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

      Where did I get that? I got it from the other hundreds of fans with whom I interact, simple. It shouldn’t be that hard to think about this yourself.

Why don’t you get off your highhorse, shut down your hissy fit and go and fill the seats of the movie premiere on a Saturday yourself if you can’t handle it.
Seats filled only after the premiere? Guess who wanted a safety blanket if it turned out to be shit after the first day. And?
Just the Mere fact that So many people are in doubt, are hesitant, are rejecting it, are discussing the value of it compared to a 15 year long masterpiece and this whole thing being like a bomb scattering all the fans in pro’s and contra’s should be Enough to realize there is something very Off-putting about this whole situation.
Or are you okay with a scattered and dissatisfied fandom who have very well-founded concerns, as long as you are happy?

Why waste our time then? You should be Long gone and satisfied as obviously you are too occupied with yourself and your own little rightfighting campagne to recognize what others are saying has meaning also.
Are you not fullfilled yet? Do you need more? Do you need to turn this into a witchhunt?
Whence art thy torches?

Seriously, the person going into other tags, other pages, other blogs that disagree with him/her Just to disagree and to “preach” what is “right” after a Month of being put on a pedestale Already is really proving him/herself.
Why don’t you get a fucking hold on yourself. You think you’re a messiah with your self-righteous bullcrap, that all ‘n all comes down to some ignorant superficial and generalized prejudices without any respectful reasoning behind it, or something?
Do you really think we need you to “school” us? Or is this your narcissistic coping mechanism?

Disrespecting Kishimotosensei? Naruban? Really? Are you seriously that stuck up? Are you trying out to receive an aureola as well?
Can you actually see further than your own narrow-minded selection of “examples” to justify your bashing? Was this the way you read the manga as well? Reading what YOU want?
Do you even have the ability to respect other opinions? Can you even rationalize ? Can you even contextualize without taking Everything personal and/or serious ? Or are you guys that focussed on only that what benefits your own ass?

The only thing consistent I’ve noticed from these kind of bashing “right”-fighters is their blatant disregard for other people’s rights, and their constant ( apparantly vital ) need to nitpick, gloat and contradict Everything. Their arguments? They change with the wind as long as they are “right”. Nothing special about that. You shouldn’t even respond as they’ll twist themselves in ways thought to be too impossible for words to get their domination over the discussion.
Why the hell search for this page if this doesn’t suit you?

If you want people to show respect to the projection of yourself onto an author (we ALL love, oh yes, do realize Why we are upset), why don’t you learn what respect is first.

          Also, great way to represent your fandom by not even reading what someone else says properly.

          No wonder haters are able to stalk and create needless drama on anti-ending pages if they keep finding fans taking things so personal they become blinded by the actual content of what was said.
          Why would I ask an anti-ending person why he/she’s on an anti-endingpage? Why would I tell people on a page they disagree with to get a hold on themselves, when I ( assumed I would be a retard elevating a side character over an entire story, like you have mistaken/insulted me for ) am on here specifically as well? No one should be that egotistical.
          Or tell them to go see the movie instead of bashing others when they’re clearly anti? Doesn’t make sense right? That must’ve been a giveaway, no?

          Trolls feast upon these kinds of things. They seek enjoyment in fucking over someone who gets too invested in it they can’t seperate the trees from the forest.

          Always back yourself up. But Not into a corner.
          Best way to do that is to respect what someone writes by reading it properly.
          Don’t you go selectively searching for parts to justify your anger/frustration just like all the pro-ending haters on here. It’s ridiculous both ways.

    Annabelle (3 years ago)

    You’re acting as if it’s all chatte’s fault that a fandom created the narutoban (which I remind you, the ban itself did not happen), as well as the trivial poll for a alternate ending. And for some reason, you’re acting like the picture of the seats speaks otherwise on what Naruto is actually selling. And a sidenote, I find that a lot of people forgot about the incident involving a kid accidentally killing himself while playing as Gaara. Even without the extreme angry fan, there will eventually be a way for parents especially, to find a way to ban things that are considered ‘inappropriate.’

    Moving on, when I read your post, it really seems that you think narusaku fandom is despicable and it’s all chatte’s fault because of what she wrote.

    And may I remind you, that yes, not everyone is satisfied with Naruto’s ending, and it DOES go far beyond the obvious, “my ship didn’t happen.” There were many things that kishimoto left without resolving it. (Note: Remember, that art, any type of art is always up for criticism).

    Here are some examples, the peace that Naruto promised Nagato. Yes, 700 does seem peaceful but tell me this. Why wasn’t rain in the epilogue? If true peace was restored, where were the small villages that were destroyed by the war before Naruto’s time. I might be nit picky about this, but kishimoto did a whole sub plot for the effect and devastation of war, yet 700 did not show any other villages. Not to mention, another major theme in Naruto was children feeling neglected for example, Naruto, Gaara, and team taka. Team taka was essentially a thrown in device to develop sasuke’s character, and other than that they have no other importance. Their backstory did not matter, their existence in Naruto wouldn’t even matter, because kishimoto essentially erased them in the end.

    There are tons of other loop holes that kishimoto has ignored completely, and this is what makes him not that great of a writer. This isn’t about respect anymore, it’s about kishimoto’s writing in general. The fact that he threw in a lot of unneeded new characters, to abandon them later on, speaks volumes about his writing.

    In my opinion, Naruto is not selling because the plot became generic and fans noticed. If you are unhappy about her post, why not just go to toho theater website to see for yourself.

      Oh and “thank” these two people for showing nh/ss-er trolls on here the irrational oversensitivity and hasty defensive judgements of SOME Narusaku fans among us Narusaku/Narusasu/other-shipper and non-shipper fans ( luckily not everyone ) , and giving them a reason to enjoy bothering us further instead of driving them away.

      Seriously.
      Not a smart move to not read what someone says before judging. Not smart whatsoever.
      And no, I will not let this slide even though in essence I agree with you. Us fans who are not in favor/support of this so-called ending to Naruto are being stalked, insulted and irrationally criticized enough for having an opinion already. There’s no need for a few oversensitive Narusaku fans to go and create havoc even amongst their own group of people because they aren’t bothered enough to show eachother respect either.
      I understand many fans are frustrated and fed up with all this marketing and off-putting information, but that doesn’t excuse you from creating more useless drama. Don’t sink down to that level.

Oh man, you narusaku fanboys don’t know what to say to not accept the film is naruhina.
I visit japanese forums like 2ch and the tickets are running out. Please don’t say that lies and don’t use fake images. You’re not acting as a narufan.

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    Then why don’t you say how 2/3 topics on 2ch are about hating Hinata and this shit of an ending? But of course, since that part won’t look good in the eyes of the beholder, let’s just toss it away. I’m very much acting as a Naruto fan, thank you!
    First of all, it’s like all you guys understood from here is that people are sabotaging the movie when all I said it’s that it’s not that well received as they make it out to be and that apparently (which I used tons of times, but hey, why read correctly?) fans over there seem to be wanting refunds which they don’t get so they decide to cancel the ticket as a whole (which I preferred not to go so in-depth and keep for myself about refundings and such because reasons like you aka people not even reading correctly what’s written in their face).
    So give me a break with this not acting as a “narufan”. Just because I criticize it doesn’t mean I’m not a fan. It’s like saying to your mother that she doesn’t love you because she didn’t buy you your favorite McDonald’s meal. She didn’t bought it to you because she loves and and doesn’t wanna see you a fatass, not because she’s not truly your mother and doesn’t truly love you.
    Check again your perceptions, okay?
    Thank you!

      Elias (3 years ago)

      This is not love towards the whole naruto manga nor kishi. Constantly critizing out of proportion, out of manner, out of logic,.. and it is too obvious it is because your narusaku obsession didn’t happen (though you seem sometimes to mask this so it is not too obvious). This is pure bitter selfcentric opinions, though you have the right to express them and people have the right to express their comments on what you have written. So face it if people are confronting you. I guess, kishi himself has more experienced and professional advisors who really are experts, rather than you. Kishi is an artist, author, with a world wide high reputation and success. I cant understand how confident you are claiming you know it better (after reading your analogy comparing your love to naruto+kishi with the love of a mother towards a child!). I could understand how narusaku fans are hurt, but I can’t understand how this bitterness sank to a bottom line close to hatred.
      Make at least a decent critic based on final figures. Not just sampling with preference (not random!). The movie hasn’t been even released yet. Or at least, put more elaborated data.
      In my personal opinion, this looks just as immature desparation of a very complicated narusaku fan who thinks she always knows the best and expresses critics out of portion and manner. As a naruto fan over 11years, I support kishi not to give fanservice to overreacting narusaku fans and just go with the story kishi has decided initially. Luckily there are more naruto fans rather than overreacting shipping fandoms.
      I am sorry to express this less kind words of mine :)

      DemonSlayer (3 years ago)

      @Chatte The beginning of your response makes it sound like the people from 2ch are the ones who are almost completely filling it up. The reason I think that is because you mentioned that 2/3 of 2ch dislike Hinata. If you think that the person who posted the original comment WASN’T trying to make it sound like most of the people who are buying tickets are from 2ch, then why include the whole”2/3″ thing? He/she was just saying that he got information from 2ch that the tickets are running out

Do you actually know how Japanese animation studios like pierrot work? As an artist you should be more aware before you open your mouth about something you seem to know little about.

Whether this movie flops or not has literally no bearing on the animators who work in that studio. Some are hired in for the duration of the movie and no longer and some already work on the anime series as a whole, so whether the movie does well or badly, it literally bears no impact on these people. Many animators work on a contract basis. Some are paid per sheet they draw. They’ve already earned their salary — which isn’t much btw, Japanese animators in general are paid a pittance for their work. The pay is literally abysmal. And this is if they’re Japanese at all. Many studios, pierrot included, go abroad for their workers to places like South Korea, Vietnam and even India where they can get their shitty animation made for dirt cheap.

If you want to rant about something, why don’t you get off your high horse and start with that?

While you’re at it, why don’t you take a moment to consider what the movie is promoting or what it’s shitting on in the process. There’s no harm in hoping a piece of garbage ends up in the trash. That’s where garbage belongs and bad movies SHOULD do objectively badly in the box office so that directors and producers actually learn a lesson from that failure.

This movie is objectively bad. Plain and simple.

It’s not disrespectful to hope that a disrespectful piece of media (which this is) should do badly. It isn’t at all disrespectful to hope that bad business decisions should have consequences. In this case, those consequence will not be on the animators who slaved on this and who get paid little. It will hit the big guns who call the shots (directors, producers, writers, hopefully Kishimoto) and who stand to line their pockets with a lot of cash.

Ano-ny-mus (3 years ago)

Really to say, I agree with you with some parts: with the plot. But if you say its Turing into a cute shojo manga if we put NaruHina then it will be the same with NaruSaku.
We are fans of Naruto just because if the pairing? Fucking shit then.
I am not going to watch Naruto: the last . I am a non-shipper of hetero pairing but would have loved to watch the film if the movie revolved around “SHONEN” only.
[ proud SasuNaru/NaruSasu shipper didn't mind the ending like others and post flames cause kishi gave us enough reason to pair them. ]

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    I didn’t say it’s turning into a cute shojo manga if we put NaruHina. I say they turned this into a NaruHina shojo romance fest. I wouldn’t have liked it that much if it was NaruSaku either to be honest. Too much cheesiness for me. I can understand it, don’t get me wrong, but I prefer a rather more real approach to stuff given that this is why I mainly ship NaruSaku. Yes, it would be the same thing with NaruSaku as well, I don’t even deny that.
    However, whenever it comes to Naruto and Sakura it doesn’t have to force things out and neither characters. Everything is so OOC… I mean, didn’t you see the spoilers? They make it so that Hinata means so much to Naruto like she’s something far beyond Sasuke even. Doesn’t that feel wrong to you?
    I am not mad at it just because NaruSaku, the NaruSaku part of it it’s just that, a part of the whole reason I don’t like the premise of this ending.
    There are shit loads of reasons I don’t like it, excuse my language. I haven’t even touched like 20% of all of this! That’s why I even said I’ll be giving my full review AFTER the movie…

Darius (3 years ago)

Good morning to all I have seen a lot of Naru Saku and Naruhina fans have been arguing about the canon shipping but tbh I seen naruhina happening way before shippuden even started I mean its very apparent that kishi is a fan of dbz i mean like the pairings on dbz say it for themselves you would think that goku after spending majority of his time with bulma that they would have ended up together but chi chi ended up being the hinata in this manga chi chi didn’t have a lot of screen time in dragon ball but that is who toriyama wanted goku to be with I’m not saying that neither shipping is wrong because both shippings have valid points to be canon sakura and hinata have saved naruto’s life in some way (sakura in the 4th great ninja war and hinata in the fight against nagato pain) so we know both love naruto to some extent so why is there so much hate from both sides I’m just glad that at the end of this manga naruto actually ended up with somebody instead of him becoming a stronger version of jiraiya

Jay. s (3 years ago)

Well as the whole manga went on it was apparent that naruto and hinata would be together. Everyone keeps looking at the fact that naruro wanted sakura. Hinata chased naruto and in sakuras mind she was always going to get saskua. Not once while reading did I get the feeling that naruto would end up with sakura. It makes me feel that most the people didn’t even read it all. And it shows a far more real out come then everything working out the way the main character wants. Its a manga not a fairytale. You don’t always get what you want.

    Lando40 (3 years ago)

    Yeah Jay.s you hit it right on the head. I been reading this manga and watching the anime since its first run and release. I since the beginjng to end never saw anywhere in either that indicated Naruto was gonna end with sakura. Literally nowhere in there.

    Everything pointed to one girl…Hinata. Kishi early artwork of hinata even had naruto sitting in the background. Sakura has always and I mean always loved romantically one person..sasuke. while hinata loved one guy…Naruto. so where in the heck did NS see and read that pair they shipped?

    Nothing is wrong with creatkng a fan ship but dont go all out retarded ones and start bashing the creator, making death threats, makin jacked up fb pages sayjn kill kishi, have a dumb petition to ban from america …all because he didnt give you the pair you wanted? Thats total idiotic thinking and actions. This is for those that signed and joined up with this insane bullcrap. Not all NS shippers are bad, but you got some real rotten apples around the ship that kills it.

    If your gonna argue points make sure they are valid to the point where its obviously implied to the source…not your fan wishing logics. Everytime I see a ship arguement I always see NS shippers totally misreading content, supply false ideals of the things they read, big time misinterpretations, name calling characters cause they pissed amd rant on kishi….all because you got it wrong. Thats not his fault, or staff or anyone but yourselves. He even stated in an interview he created a misleading parallel between kushina and sakura to see who would fall for it even if its simple they werent that much a parallel. NS took the bait..based it on one sole thing…her abusive nature to hit people, but totally disregarded what his mom actually said and implied for naruto to not go for the first girl he likes ( not loves) which would be sakura and then she actually meant to find a girl like her in her inner softer personality like how she was with minato..More like Hinata.

    See how easy it is to trip folks up that really dont pay closer attention to parallels or ecen read the manga correctly. One bone and they fetched it without thinking what is the meat on it like and should they go get it.

    The manga has ended, naruhina is canon and so are those other ships. Cool to keep the NS fandom going but dont disrespect the staff who worked hard, tell lies to prove your agendas, argue with folks on things you misinterpreted from whats plainly there. Its good to have an opinion and to enjoy your fandoms but dont try to wreck it with idiot rants like a spoiled child amd try to ruin ot for the whole fandom. We enjoy Naruto the series for its fun and adventure and glad to see those we come to love as characters in a shonen manga happy with who they always wanted ( couple from begining to end) and live with happiness.

    The movie is a Naruhina movie amd it is awesome. Just as Kishi intended the pair to be one day and fans who loved the story and enjoyed it for what it is and their pairing matched got a great treat with more to come for others as well hopefully. I want to see amd keep watchinf amd reading. Thanx kishi for 15 years of Naruto.

DemonSlayer (3 years ago)

The theater pictures are from the website, correct? I never really understood why people think that the “kiss” between Naruto and Sakura supports NaruSaku. If it was really a kiss then I totally understand, but it wasn’t a kiss, just CPR to help extend Naruto’s life . A random person can give someone else CPR and not have feelings for them.

Chatte, please stay away from Naruto from now on. You’re now finding joy in other people’s pain. Just because you’re angry that your pairing didn’t happen, doesn’t mean you have to laugh at its failing. Its pathetic. Would it make you happy if this failed? It would wouldn’t it, because it’s not going YOUR WAY. Its not your story. All this work that Kishimoto gave to you fake fans and you have to get mad because Naruto didn’t end up with the main character? If only Hinata didn’t end up with Naruto, oh the lament of you all. That’s no reason to complain about something that isn’t real. You are giving a REAL man a hard time because an unreal character didn’t get with an unreal girl. Its absolutely sad and cruel. Find another anime or manga and stop your whining. Naruto isn’t real. If I seem angry, its because I am, because you and other people decide to harass an innocent man for trying to entertain you and giving you something to enjoy. Sorry if i sound harsh, but you HAVE to stop doing this. The ending won’t change. Get over it and move on

    Oh and look at this. It’s the fanbase’s views on Hinata as the heroine. The green is those

I don’t point this out to rub your “wrongness” in your face, so to speak, but only to caution you from unnecessarily alienating others who may enjoy the movie/franchise regardless of any pairings. It’s fine to be critical, but be wary that wishing financial ruin upon honest, hard-working animators doesn’t endear others’ to your cause.

The Last Naruto Movie sold 175% more tickets than Road to Ninja on first day

And it was till the first day.

TPE (3 years ago)

Well apparently the Last made at least just as much money it’s opening then Road to Ninja made during it’s entire run.

To put things in perspective, it surpassed DBZ: Battle of Gods’s opening weekend results in Japan. Approx $12 million US for Naruto to DBZ’s $7 million US.

I don’t know where this info came from, but I can tell you, its probably false ore not in a bif Naruto fanarea. Or maybe the WHITE CHAIRS were the reserved chairs. Just my thoughts.

    The movie was a big success and I’m glad. Charge, just let everything go, you could be missing out on something great.

Well, I’m a NH fan and agree that there wasn’t much lead up to the movie. I don’t disagree with NH happening, just wish there was more clarification and a subtle approach. Hinata wanted to be at Naruto’ side whilst the same for Sakura to be at Sasuke’ and to go with him. You can deny this and say, ‘but it isn’t going along with character development!’ or ‘ I call fan-service!’ yet its done. NaruHina and SasuSaku. The staff and Kishi worked hard on Naruto, this movie included. Even if NaruSaku happened, I would understand it. You know why? At the end of the day, we do not, I repeat DO NOT tell the story, we simply enjoy it.

I find it funny that “The Last” broke a bunch of records for opening night. All these sour grapes over a manga meant for 8-12 year olds.

Well, Sakura and Sasuke are the most messed up characters in Naruto – Sakura is pathetic and totally brainwashed in love with total asshole, selfish arrogant criminal. And that twist when HE finally says: OK, Sakura I tried to kill you, never give a shit about you, but now is everything over – Let’s f..k
Sakura: OK, I am your bitch, you know that right?

You all fan of NaruSaku are weird…she never loved him, when she lied that she wants Naruto, he knew she is lying and didn’t want her. Hinata from episode 1 shows determined love for Naruto, saved him, confessed love to him – I don’t know, I am guy and I can say: Sakura is pathetic stupid whore, while Hinata is kind lovely pure girl…

So, I was happy for this pairing, and hated Sakura x Sasuke, she should become old maid and Sasuke should have been jailed or killed.

    petr (3 years ago)

    I will paraphrase one stupid kid here: for all NaruSakutarded, the manga has no logic, plot became stupid and overtwisted (Black Zetsu, Kaguya…facepalm), 4th war lame and booooooooooooring, well a lot of parts were boring…I think Naruto manga deserve some editing so does the anime to fasten that slooooooow show. And for pairing…Sakura is hands down just terrible mindless person, but ok if she in the last episode said: OMG, I was sooooo stupid the whole time, I think that the fog finally lifted from my brain…Naruto I realize that I love you, I am sorry for everything, sorry, that I run as brainwashed puppy after that asshole Sasuke…

    Now, then that would be ok for NaruSaku, BUT half of NaruHina universe would be pissed-off, because Hinata is truly the only girl who deserves Naruto…

    So either pairing would be “good/wrong”…BUT…Sakura remained stupid whore, so the only good pairing is NaruHina – DOT. :)

    Btw. I visit this page, because I tried to find CAM-VIDEO of the movie :P, and in my country it is called KINO-RIP, and google find on this page “rip-off”…so I am here, otherwise I didn’t even knew about this NaruSakutarded’s whining….

Movie failing? lol Bitter NaruSaku fans. I think it’s more like you want the movie to fail and try to convince yourself it does. Check your facts:
http://www.saiyanisland.com/2014/12/the-last-naruto-the-movie-earns-1-47-billion-yen/

The thing is, you spend so much time bitching with other NaruSaku fans that you start to believe everyone feel the same way you do about the ending. Truth is, the majority is happy that Naruto ended up with Hinata. In most forums and reaction video I saw (and I saw A LOT), reaction was very positive. All the people I know too. Unlike you, many people were actually relieved Naruto didn’t end up with Sakura.
Personally I understand what you mean in a way, because I agree NaruSaku could have had a lot of potential. The girl who liked a boy for superficial reasons starts to realise the guy she used to dislike has been by her side all long and bla bla bla. That would have a good story and even redeemed Sakura in a way. But the way the story went, I simply don’t think Sakura deserves Naruto. She was a bitch in part 1 and kept pinning for Sasuke in part 2 though he was a jerk while often hitting or looking down on Naruto. Truthfully, I would have felt sorry for Naruto if he ended up with Sakura. Hinata on the other hand, saw his value from the beginning even when he was the pariah of the village. She’s worthy of him and is going to treat him well.

Also, let’s face it, when you like a pairing, your perception become biased because you give more attention to the little details (sometimes meaningless) that seem to confirm your favorite pairing and disregard the signs of other pairings. In other words, you see what you want to see. In Naruto’s case, there were clues for both NaruSaku and NaruHina from day one. To keep people wondering I suppose. But as the series progressed, it became more and more obvious that it was going to be NaruHina. And it was pretty much confirmed ever since the Pain Invasion Arc. I mean I’m the only one of my group of friends who read the chapters online and when I mentioned that in the last chapter they are all married and have kids, everyone asked “Naruto is with Hinata, right?” Everyone, even those who are not big fans and just watch an episode from time to time. That must means something. You have a right to feel disappointed by the final pairings, but that bitter, self entitled attitude is pissing off all the fandom right now. Those are the final pairings, deal with it.

    Movie is receiving bad reputation. Deal with it.

      Slayer (3 years ago)

      I have yet to find anyone who is giving the movie bad reputation besides on forums that solely have NaruSaku fans. To be honest, the only pair in this whole series that I actually wanted was Shikamaru and Temari (since it was the only pair that had undeniable romance devolopment). I always hoped Naruto would be single for the rest of his life

        xycvbv (3 years ago)

        How about the 1 billion people you find on google? The ending is complete crap. The idea of Sasuke coming back to Konoha is just stupid. It was decided that he was “banned” from Konoha, before he even did like 90% of his crimes. Letting him come back to Konoha is just not an option. If a murderer saves your life, because he would die if he didn’t do it, it doesn’t make him innocent. No matter what he does, he just does it because his crap team would have no chance to “kill all kage” or whatever their current dumb goal is, and would just die on the same enemies.

        I personally hope that the guy who wrote the story gets hit by a car for ruining it like this.
        Stupid comic-book happy-ending, so all the 6 year olds feel good.

        I really wonder why writers make childish stuff like this? Original DBZ (aka Freezer saga) is pretty much the ONLY long anime, that is directed towards older viewers, and KEEPS it that way. And surprise surprise… it’s basically the most successful anime ever. Why do all other animes TRY to be adult for a bit, and then go childish again? Shippuuden started out so dramatic and awesome… and then “because it’s a show and kiddys love gaara” gaara doesnt die, and it’s back to “kid friendly” storytelling.. except that they burn a woman alive, and impale another one on stones, with the brutality of DBZ…

Hmmm I wanna see some links to where it factually states this movie estimate earnnings is fake. Cause everrryyy where I went, same amounts were posted and was legit when concerns the RTN gross in its run. The only spots I have seen that denounce its high earnings are either haters spots or folks making false claims on ill wishes. Its sad when a fandom with those retardo wack shippers are really hating on something thats done a great job for 15 years and you now hate it, the creator, the staff and the hot babe naruto got. Shame shame and damn shame.

    anonymous (3 years ago)

    The only thing that’s confirmed true so far is that naruto the last sold on the 1st day +175% of the amount of tickets sold on the 1st day of road to ninja. This isn’t so surprising considering that they didn’t have a refund policy and how naruto the last isn’t competing with any blockbuster movies right now. The news about naruto the last on its 1st day almost making the total gross of road to ninja turned out to be a misinterpretation.

      Slayer (3 years ago)

      yeah, it missed the mark by 0.02 billion

Lando40 (3 years ago)

The new movie beat out RTN very well on its first run day. So yeah point me to where it says it didnt.

    Chatte Georgiana (3 years ago)

    If it’s really true, though the maths tend to contradict that but it’s not any of my business, it’s just because they didn’t allow refunds, because lots of Japanese fans wanted to cancel their tickets and get refunds, but they couldn’t. That’s why everyone calls it a fraud.

Tsijiari (@megafenix64) (3 years ago)

As far as the love developemnt between characters has gone on manga i really didnt care who sasuke and naruto woudl end up with. Hinata could have ended up with Shino or KIba and i wouldnt care at al sicne there was never ever a true love relationship between she and naruto, her feelings for him kind of look like an obsession just like sasukras feelings for sasuke, saukraxsasuke and narutoxhinata are as good pair as ChojixKarui; the only pair that showed a bit of true love relationship was shikamaruxtemari and I am being Kind here. I am really dissapointed not just due to the pairs but the manga itself, and dont understand why Neji had to die when he did have a bright future and would have been really great to see how he could have changed his clan, in his place Hinatas father could have died for example showing Hinta that he did really care for her, there are many other candidates that could have died in his place that werent as important as neji but I can se kishimoto didnt want to bother to much with nejis future and the hyuga clan so he just killed him

Atro (3 years ago)

Honestly, I’m with the last post. I couldn’t care less who Naruto ended up with, although in my opinion, Sakura would’ve made more sense. But even then, I wouldn’t have been happy. Why? Because most of the women in Naruto look like stupid idiot fangirls who seem to be “in love” with the image of a guy rather than the actual guy. Hinata didn’t even know Naruto and the same goes for Sakura with Sasuke. “He’s cute and I love him” That was it. The guys didn’t give a shit about them, but hey, who cares? The development was shit in both cases, which is why I thought Naruto with Sakura would’ve made more sense since they actually had like a real relationship. However, since I’m not the author, I respect whatever he chose.

My disappointment, though, doesn’t come from the fact that Naruhina was endgame, but the lack of any explaining and the fucking rushed ending. You wanted that ending, fine, but explain. And I don’t mean with a stupid movie about one pairing, but with more chapters that made that ending make sense. For everyone, not just Naruto.

What happened after the war? How is everyone dealing with it? What’s with Sai and Ino, or Chooji and the Kumo girl? How did Temari end up in Konoha (only pairing with a bit of development, and that’s being generous)? And more important, how did Naruto become Hokage? 700 chapters awaiting that moment, and we don’t even get to see it? I’m sorry, but even if you’re a Naruhina or Sasusaku fan and all you can say is “we’re cannon!”, I don’t see how you could’ve enjoyed that ending. Was it really so important that you don’t care about everything else?

As I said, I don’t care about the pairings, but I did care about the characters and the story as a whole, and I hated the ending, not because who they ended up with, but because of the absolutely rushed ending in 700 (couldn’t be 705 or 703 apparently). How they could spend 15 years doing this to then mess it up is beyond me.

Visitor (3 years ago)

Hello guys, I Simply dont undurstand all the raging. If the mangaka made it naruhina, then thats it. You can dislike it and thats okay, nobody said everybody will like it. There are other animes, and films which are highly rated, and said itt will be a huge succes, but there are always people who are disappointed with them, and thats normal. All i want to say is, that its futile to argue about it, because people are different, we born different.

Mayumi (3 years ago)

This was just strange for me: “Fans all over the world that have been following this manga for more than a cute love story cannot help but feel not only disappointed”. For real, if someone really read it not based on a love story the, obviously, this person would already know what Masashi Kishimoto declared about the movie. If you like the series, one little piece of these all couldn’t destroy 15 years of the series.
Furthermore, It’s also very well known that the manga wasn’t a romance, if people have so much care for that, they can look for a romantic shoujo series and it’ll fit better ther taste. The movie was a plus, directed as suggested by the groud that serializes the anime, not Masashi Kishimoto; look for romance in the manga, there is not.

          Bob (2 years ago)

          To be honest Naruto now sucks for me now and I’m not a fan boy. Naruto was suppose to achieve what his predecessors weren’t able to. Him all of a sudden falling for Hinata is dumb. The whole story of Naruto is him reaching to achieve what was unreachable for him. Thats his greatest quality or you could say his ninja way. BTW I hate Sakura and like Hinata but Naruto started to have an affect on Sakura and now people throw it out the window like it was never the case. And how could Sakura fall in love with Sasuke after he tried to kill her. The whole logic is dumb. Now Naruto sees Sakura as a sister Im done with Naruto I haven’t even watch the last movie once I found out that Sasuke sins has just been washed away like he never betrayed the hidden leaf or that his walk was better than that of Madara. The end would’ve been better if Naruto and Sasuske both died at the hands of each other than for them both to live and end up the way they do. Because it completely destroyed Naruto for people like me who don’t give a crap about Hinata or sakura.

          Chatte Georgiana (2 years ago)

          Yeah, I totally get you. The problem imo is that Kishi screwed-it up with the whole Uchiha curse of hatred and ending it in a shitty way with a wrong scribbled thing by BZ. Leaving everything aside, that is the most stupid thing he could’ve done because the Uchiha plot was the heaviest in the manga, it was what stood at the core of the problems of this manga and the system within it.
          The Uchihas after all had no fault, Kishi build great potential plot with their curse he just didn’t raise up to the expectations he, himself put…
          Everything else can be explained from there. After all Sasuke is all but a victim of a fucked-up system. And he wronged with Madara… he either should’ve left him a crazed old man or stop excusing his actions like he did with all the rest – it cheapens the effect aka what he did with Black Zetsu.
          That was the downfall of the manga imo that took up everything else with it.
