Hey folks! I know none of you will probably read this; however here goes!
I know it's been quite some time I've stopped in but I guess I kinda have had a major art block and well, I've been quite busy. I work way too much for my own good and I finally got some time off for a few days. I figured I'd stop and check in about how I felt about the last chapter and Naruto drawing to an end. Well, I want to let you know I thought it was kind of... meh. Dont' take this the wrong way when I say it but it seems like fifteen years of character development has gone out the window and this is not really the pairing thing at all. I will admit, I personally wasn't a fan of the pairings that they used and I would have liked to see it with it all being ambiguous with their lives well established. I dunno. I jut felt kinda meh about it overall. Though, it has been a hell of a ride for sure. 699 was alright and ended on a very wonderful note for the most part; however, 700 was not something I was a fan of.
Please keep in mind, I say this and I'm not bashing Kishimoto. I thank him for the long running and outstanding show that taught me so much and I most certainly am quite happy that I got to be a member of it along the way. Though, I am allowed to have opinion on the finale
Now, as a community we are also open to take things as we would like and create our own wonderful endings and ideas or even carry on a story. Now as a note, there are going to be no changes to Taraka, canon or not I'm taking my own approach with her and she is still paired with Sasuke just as I take some other oc's and pair them as well with some canon and my own canon/canon. I have the freedom to create just as everyone else does and if you don't like it, you can see yourself off the page. No hate please.
Been a fun ride and I will not be getting off said ride anytime soon.
