Yeah, that's probably it. I can relate to that archetype in real life.

Well, the one thing I've learned browsing fan-art of Naruto on Pixiv, is that the most popular pairing in Japan (for Hinata) is Neji-Hinata.


That's very interesting. Incest is wincest, I suppose.

So once I saw him die and Naruto and Hinata holding hands almost immediately after, I thought this'd free the story of the shipping nonsense, while keeping Japanese readers happy (since "heroic deaths" for well liked characters, are a cool thing there).

Sadly I was wrong about it finally ending, but if Neji stays dead and Sasuke stays "good" (that one seems almost certain) and alive, then I'd say chances of you seeing Naruto and Hinata hooked-up are rather high.


No matter what happens in the story, shipping will always exist. Even if the story ends. Shippers are crazy like that.

To be fair, Sasuke has never really shown any interest in Sakura. The most emotion he's ever showed her was when he "thanked" her after he left the village back in the original series. Just because he's a good guy doesn't mean he'll want to bang Sakura. He's much closer to Karin than he is Sakura (but saying that is also kind of a stretch).

Now wouldn't that be interesting? Uchiha and Uzumaki blood mingling together! Ha!

If not, Kishimoto will likely leave it open-ended and then some anime spin-off in the vain of Dragon Ball GT, which I expect will happen, will have them together, since the anime staff is totally into Naruto-Hinata.


Naruto GT! "And when you couldn't think it could get any worse!"

Alright well I totally called that Natsu would go after the fire dragon at some point, but didnt expect to see them teaming up instead. Nice development for him since he basically has a near-limitless supply of fire now.

Well, at least the explanation why the dragon turned actually made sense. I'm willing to accept it.

I wonder if dragons can eat dragon slaying magic of same-type dragon slayers, just like dragon-slayers can? If so, they have a limitless supply of energy right there.

Ugh. Friggin' Fairy Tail.

I get the Lucy fanservice. It's a running gag. I understand that. But come on, Mashima.

Lucy used to be my favorite character, but she seems to be getting more and more useless (and clothes-less) the longer the series goes on.

I'ma still read it (for now), but at this point the series' writing seems like such a waste of what-could-be interesting characters. They're all shallow and/or fanservice now (if they weren't before). Maybe I'm expecting too much of a shounen manga?

*Looks at Fullmetal Alchemist*

No, no I'm not.

I don't remember the last time there was fanservice in HXH either, BTW where the hell is HXH?

Dont worry, I'm still wondering where the next HotD release is after that surprise pop-up of it last month.

So what manga's are you guys talking about here now?

Pretty much the same stuff as when you last posted, Naruto, One Piece and Bleach. Also, Fairy Tail has become a regularly re-appearing topic of discussion, Fairy Tail is the only manga that gets discussed here more often than when you last posted (although I personally don't follow it).

There are some followers of HxH and Berserk here, but both are on hiatus, so that's that.

But seriously, Onepunch-Man is awesome.

@Bleach

This chapter was the worst chapter of Bleach I've ever read (in recent memory). Honestly, this chapter was actually 3 pages long. The rest was fucking filler. That's all I got to say.

@Naruto

...Sigh...

Holy shit, Sakura learned a technique even Shizune couldn't learn! Clearly she is now Sasuke's and Naruto's equal.

It had hints of Mayuri, and a Bleach chapter with hints of Mayuri is automatically better than it has any right to be.

Kubo really likes them incestual loli imoutos. http://i.imgur.com/h7ZdDQB.png

I guess kishimoto felt the heat of the flames turning up, what with the hinata bit on this chapter.

Re: Shounen Manga Discussion(Naruto Bleach etc. spoilers inside)

I think it's more playing to both crowds to generate further interest. Mangaka don't interact much with their fans, except Oda, but even in that case the questions he answers are cherry-picked. So there's not much flaming Kishimoto can recieve. The only way to influence a Mangaka is if the interest in the manga drops, but Naruto is, I think, a year max away from concluding, so that won't happen.

@Bleach Yeah I really don't like the twist. I liked Zangetsu the way he was. He was one of the cooler secondary characters, what a shame.

Clearly since Lee and Tenten are a year older they are way past their prime! Either that or due to being the two main characters in the comedy spin-off they don't need no limelight.

Re: Shounen Manga Discussion(Naruto Bleach etc. spoilers inside)

Thu Jun 06, 2013 10:02 am

Is tenten any popular in japan?

Re: Shounen Manga Discussion(Naruto Bleach etc. spoilers inside)

Thu Jun 06, 2013 11:06 am

Not really. Even in the spin-off she plays the straight man usually. Of all the main teams girls she seems 2nd least popular, barely above Ino.

Lee is popular though.
