If the spoilers are to believed I- WHAT?!


Kishimoto, why must you make me lose hope in this series once more. Dammit!

I don't care what all the naysayers say about you, for you have always been my little emo baby. You had the most phenomenal character growth, and I hope to all the manga gods (and Kishimoto) that you will end the series as the Kage of your own Village. You know, the Village of the Powerful and Clinically Insane. If you go back to Knonoha as one of its Shinobi or a prisoner I shall FOREVER deny the existence of Naruto. I rather you die a GLORIOUS death than return to Konoha. Actually, I would only accept Sasuke returning to Konoha if it happens under one scenario – talked about under the cut.

Wikipedia is awesome )

I can't get over how shounen manga is becoming awesome again.

Naruto manga.

So, I haven't read the newest chapter or anything, but, um, so, uhh - W.T.F. )

In conclusion, Kishimoto, just when I think you will go the 'normal' shounen route you do something completely unexpected. If you carry through with this I'll be pretty damn impressed.

Naruot 397! I called this about 1 or 2 years ago!


ETA: To clarify )

I may even go back to reading Naruto after this.

ETA: Um, to those who have been following the Naruto manga, um, WTF? Seriously, what have been happening since Sasuke first appeared post-time skip?


I wasn't meant to care about Sasuke anymore. WTF?!

grey's anatomy and naruto

naanima: (doing the hallucingenic dance)
Grey’s Anatomy continues to make me laugh, cry and scream obscenities at the monitor while tearing my hair out. I love this show, and there is not one character that I hate. OK, it is more like I end up hating one of them for a little bit (they are all arseholes at times) but mostly there is much warm feelings (more like conflicting feelings) about all of them.

The Train crash episode made me cry like a little baby, and while I did expect something to happen I didn’t expect that and once again I am reminded as to why I actually like McDreamy and not, you know, burning an effigy of him. Alex grows on you, like really grows on you, and if I didn’t like him before by the train episode I was all about the Alex-love, though he still is an arse more often than not.

Also, Burke have chemistry with every character on the show. I’m pretty sure he can probably have chemistry with an inanimate object, but that’s not the point, the point is; he’s awesome.

And now for something different, [ profile] i_smile, we need to see each other more often... or less.

The Way I’d Love Naruto to End… or the Epic Fic I would write if I had more of an attention span. In a very blurry chronological order. )

Naruto - Chapter 307

OK, Kishimoto, now you have my full attention.

Naruto question

  • Aug. 8th, 2005 at 8:00 PM
naanima: (inspired)
'Cos this has been in my head for a very loooooog time.

Does Kishimoto, at any point, in the manga or otherwise, explicitly state that Sasuke went off to follow Orochimaru. I'm not talking about implied comments, or the mass fandom agreement, I'm talking about textual evidence. This is important, because honest to god, I can't for the life of me remember it being said, in the text, that Sasuke followed Orochimaru.

And if it was mentioned, point me to the issue, or at least tell me who said it, and what was said.

Naruto 264/263/262

naanima: (dangerWithin)
So, uh, I have been really behind on Naruto, like, uh, 18 chapters behind. So, it is a bit of a wtf having just read 264 with no thoughts about the issues in between (I've heard the spoilers in bits and pieces but it didn't really compute till now). Wow. I mean wow. Though now things are looking less bizzare having just finished reading 262 and 263.

Naruto 264/263/262 )

Will download the rest some other time. Dial up is bad with the downloading.

naanima: (stress)
This have gone beyond silly. I need a job. Yes, I know I say this every few months or so, but dammit I'm serious this time. I'm going to get a job this semester even if I have to do something drastic like actually give a damn about my hair. I have TWO free days. TWO! Duriing those two free days I can actually buckle down and get a damn job. I don't need to be paid much, all I'm aiming for is maybe $100.00 a week. This is so I can feel like I'm not just wasting air and space.

I'm 23 this year. ARGHHH!

On other news, I need to wait till 2:30pm to get this enrolment screw up cleaned up.

[EDIT: 'NARUTO': OMFG! The series has confirmed all my fears. Kishimoto read BAD fanfiction. NOT 248.]

[EDIT 2: d00d! I have been rejected twice today on the job front. Rather than finding this discouraging I'm sorta amused. Two down, five more to go, and then I'll get stressed.]
naanima: (what is this)
Hmm, this issue bring up some really interesting points about the Sharingan. I'm still under the firm belief that the Magenkyou can only be performed when an individual has two working Sharingan eyes and is an Uchiha. The former because the Magenkyou seem to relate to how many dots each Sharingan eye can generate the latter because I doubt someone who is not a Uchiha can survive the output of Chakra to the Sharingan. The Uchiha, for lack of a better word, seem to be made to wield the Sharingan. Their bodies (or at least their eyes) seem to be able to stand the generated Chakra without too many detriments (unlike Kakashi whose body need much rest after using the Sharingan. Sasuke had used it for much longer periods of time without needing prolonged bed rest.) Though this brings up the interesting point of Itachi, I'm sure at on point someone made the remark that using the Sharingan (or was it the Magenkyou?) plays havoc on ones health.

See, this is when I wish I know more about genetics.

g-defend, GB, aishiteruze baby and KH

naanima: (WITCH!)
[ profile] amei, d00d, you rock. Much love, beer and tissues.

I'm so behind on all my shounen reading (GB is different, one day I might even attempt to explain it but today is not that day). I have come to the realisation, actually I have realised this awhile back but never actually verbalised. Anyways, the realisation: I'm following Naruto not because it is a kick arse story or because I have an urge to see what happens next or even to see how the characters turns out. I'm reading Naruto for the sole purpose of keeping up with good Naruto fanfiction. This says quite a bit about both the series and about myself, neither of which I feel comfortable in thinking to deeply on. (This is to say, I'm a fanfiction whore, and it is sort of sad that K-sensei have this awesome cast of characters and a semi interesting plot, and the only reason I'm following the series is because of fanfiction. No chemistry or at least not enough to keep me interested. In hindsight, the only time Naruto made me really interested was when Orochmaru first appeared, during the fight between Neji and Hinata, and the conclusion of Naruto chasing Sasuke.)

G-Defend is ghei, ghei, ghei, ghei, GHEI!

[ profile] perseid, the series is such brainless fluff, not terribly funny, not terribly heart wrenching (just addictive.) Shame on you. (I need more. More I tell you.)

Need to re-read the rest of Get Backers, the Card arc is still the most amusing. Ban in a CLAMP get up (all flowing robes and bizarre hats) and doing the kissing is an experience worth re-visisting.

Something I forgot to mention. [ profile] nekomancy, you probably would like to know that I sat through ALL 26 episodes of AishiteruZe Baby in a day. It was an experience that should not be repeated. Like all shoujo it is damn addictive, and the dodgy aspects of the series disappeared after the first few episodes (thank the gods). I found myself liking every character though I admit the younger brother is just PERFECT! 'I am the Prince of Darkness' indeed.

On the gaming front: Kingdom Hearts is cool. I continue to kick arse. Either this game is easier than I thought or it is somehow clicking with me on every level possible.

Naruto 237... hmm, actually saw that one coming.

What do you mean Sasuke?... Jiriya need to get hit, and 'Let's do the Time Warp Again! )

If you think about it Orochimaru would make a really good Dr. Frank-N-Furter. I can practically see him saying, "a sweet transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania," and my brain keep on whispering to me that Sasuke would make a good Janet.

I confess, I just want to see them do the 'Time Warp Again'.

Naruto 235? & DN 42,

DN 42... Teh Crack! Oh Teh Crack! The Great Escape! *laughs* )

I swear DN is going to make insane, and Naruto is a basket of heartache waiting to happen.

manga: Furuba, Naruto, DN, FMA

  • Aug. 24th, 2004 at 7:49 AM
naanima: (sociopathic)
There are weeks when all the series you follow seem to leave at a cliffhanger or reveal something terribly shocking.

So, Furuba, Akito's revelation. Well, the anime definitely got that one wrong *snickers* I'm not sure if I should be scared by this, or pray that the mangaka can pull off whatever she's trying to pull off.

Naruto: OMFG!! Sasuke! Naruto! The angst! WHY?! I love the both of you so damn MUCH! I mean I understand, but dammit, LOVE and PEACE! Not this anger, this pain, this damn fight. What's really bad is that I don't know how K-sensei is going to end this. Naruto as a shounen series should be about the Hero overcoming odds and winning, thus, at this point Naruto should go all Kyubi and kick Sasuke's arse, BUT it doesn't solve a damn thing. Sasuke need his vengeance, and dragging him back to Leaf is NOT going to solve anything. I want a resolution to this because I'm hurting for Sasuke and I'm hurting for Naruto. My heart wants Naruto to bring Sasuke back, but my head wants Sasuke to win against Naruto and just leave because we all know it is better for the plot. But if K-sensei can make Sasuke see reason again, to realise the 'precious people' in his life, to take a step back and wait to become stronger (kick Itachi's arse!) than I'll forever grovel at his feet.

As for the movie... KAKASHI! SQUEEE! And I'm a confused about the timeline. Naruto is using the rasengan (gods, I can't remember how to spell the damn justsu), and Sasuke is with them. So, does this mean the movie is set sometime after the current arc in the manga, and the anime is taking the AU route?

Death Note: Well... Raito proves once again his mad, mad skillz at screwing people over and thinkig ten steps ahead. So, L, what are you going to do with a person who honestly belief he is innocent? I love this series for the pure amoral aspect of it, and my inner psych student go all SQUEEE when Raito shows us his personality, or when L reveal tid-bits of his personality through his body language. SQUEEE!

FMA: 10 more episodes. It is not going to end happy, especially not with the snippets of the movie we have been getting -_-

Uni, Detective Conan & Naruto

naanima: (nicotine)
First day of Uni. Me think doing 5 units this semester is a case of over-confidence. Currently in Economic Techiniques 102 Lab, have no idea what he's talking about. Budget Constraints?!

Anyways, being reading way too much Detective Conan and was re-reading Nartuo like mad though lost steam after the Chunnin exams. Loved Hayate, was quite sad when he died, actually it was probably at that point that the world of Naruto became more real to me. Death of an interesting and likable side-character always hit me harder than main characters (most of the time). In Hayate's case it was worse because I didn't see it coming until it happened *sighs* I have this urge to read fanfics on the lesser known Jounins. I have this theory that all Jounin walk a fine line between eccentricity and outright insanity. A job like their's requires people of uh, questionable mental sanity ^^;;;

Do need more DC, Kudo and Hattori together is a magnet for murder, though the latter is more of a focal point for physical damage. The boy has been drugged, stabbed, shot, and almost drowned after meeting Kudo. Now I need more Detective Conan. My love for Ai knows no bound.

[EDIT: I'm feeling like I'm on drugs. All floaty and with a slightly queasy stomach. Winters aren't good for my health.]

Re-watching HunterXHunter.


If Togashi-sensei ever gets over his sprawling attention span and start concentrating on the main plot involving Gon's father, or Kurapika's vengeance against the Ryodan I'll be forever grateful. Hell, work in Killua's family and I'll be a mindless mass of pure happiness. Mind you, having a condensed running commentary of the newest volume by [ profile] nekomancy give me hope. Gon's teacher has appeared, and the Hunters have made a mass appearance against the... uh... bug/human/animal hybrid.

I have hope for HXH no matter how much the current plotline sounds like a 50's B-grade horror/sc-fi film. Let's face it, manga/anime like any other medium, reuse plots and ideas, it's just a matter of how well the old themes are worked into the new format. Therefore, I have hope! To tell you the truth I'm much more in love with the HXH manga and anime than I am with Naruto.

Gon and Killua's friendship is a healing balm for me against Naruto and Sasuke's melodrama of a relationship. When I say relationship I mean that in every way. If Naruto and Sasuke are not screwing each other now they will be in the future. I refuse to say I'm imagining Naruto/Sasuke when K-sensei is all but shovelling it down our collective throats under the pretense of a 'platonic' rivalry.

See, three/four volumes ago I was all 'Naruto and Sasuke in the manga are only friends/rivals. It's only my fangirl mind that see the potential for anything more.' NO more. Three/four volumes ago it seemed Sasuke actually cared for Sakura, three/four volumes ago I thought Naruto was finally going to notice Hinata, three/four volumes ago Naruto and Sasuke weren't even interacting with each other. NO more. Now it's pretty much Naruto and Sasuke all way. Hell, ever when neither is seen in the manga it's still the 'Naruto and Sasuke' show.

See, this is what happens when the mangaka spend four volumes painting a world where it is all about Naruto and Sasuke. So, no more guilt (never felt any to begin with) over Naruto and Sasuke. As far as I'm concerned Naruto and Sasuke doing the hot monkey sex at some point in the future is canon (even if it isn't on screen). So, unless K-sensei suddenly decide to do a 180 degree turn and make Sakura the centre of the Universe for Sasuke, and stop telling us that Sasuke is like Naruto's one and only 'friend' my yaoi fangirl and my logical normal girl are in 100% agreement.

Some people say I'm delusional, personally I prefer observant ^__^V Beside, unless someone can prove me 100% wrong I'm gonna stick to what I'm seeing.
