    This chapter confirms that Sakura will die.

    Sasuke and Naruto will engage in a fight, with Sakura at the sidelines watching.

    The tides will turn against Naruto, who tries to reason with Sasuke during the fight.

    Then we see Rasengan versus Chidori Part 3, with Sakura jumping in the middle, a la Part 1, though with nobody holding her back.

    Naruto stops but Sasuke’s arm runs through her body.

    Sasuke nonchalantly removes his arm from Sakura’s chest. She falls forward towards Naruto.

    “Don’t fight anymore for my sake, Naruto…” she whispers painfully.

    “Sakura-chan!” exclaims Naruto.

    “I don’t want to see you get hurt” continues the moribund Sakura.

    The feelings of Sakura finally reach Naruto as she flees the world. Sasuke, disgusted at the scene, decides to leave the battlefield-turned-graveyard. A chasing Naruto is unable to catch him.

    Something like that.

    someone here’s blogging naruto now?

    Good idea, though I like bleach better

  • October 30, 2009 at 11:29 pmeld

    Version 1
    naruto :”Sorry sakura i already got Hinata”

    version 2
    naruto :”sorry sakura i already have sexy no jitsu”

    version 3
    naruto :”sorry sakura i actually like sasuke”

    It was pretty much Sakura saying “LOL BTW I love you” and Naruto saying “LOL WUT WTF You liar.” Friggin Sai, just putting this into Sakura’s head. Although she was pretty stupid to listen to him,

    Which reminds me, they never resolved the whole Hinata confessing thing. All we know is Naruto was uber-pissed when we thought she was dead. They didn’t really show much else. >_>

    All right, I think Sakura did a splendid attempt, for her at least. Here is the plot, she could not accept the fact of being rejected so brightly by Sasuke ages ago. Now she felt bad about the things the others said to her. To clean her own conscience, she tried to use Naruto’s feelings for her to take away all the weight from his sholders (and from her own, of course). The Idea was brilliant. The execution was a PIECE OF SHIT.
    If she had said that with only Naruto listening, as dumb as he is, it could have worked better! The lie however, was clear. For a person that would beat the guts out of everyone, whenever the fact that Naruto likes her was brought to light say now that so lightly, and worse, it was the first thing that she said to him…
    That may be something new, but for me Naruto now will pass to dislike her, and at the very end she will be ALONE…
    But now Naruto has one more motive to kill the useless Sasuke, because of him Sakura was forced to lie about herself.
    Plots apart, that chapter was great, I can not wait to see that scene in the Anime.

    How messed up would it be if Naruto dies at the end, Sasuke becomes Hokage, and Sakura marries him?
    Oh the outrage that would ensue.

  • October 31, 2009 at 12:15 amRise~N Seraphim

    Well said! Well said! I hate Sakura so much and this does justice to her.

  • October 31, 2009 at 1:14 amcrystal_

    I have nothing against Sakura when she’s not too busy being a Sasuke-fangirl or a-girl-in-love. Because I doubt she knows what’s love in the first place…I’ve always thought it’s adoration. But maybe it’s just me.

    However. It’s still good to see that Naruto has matured from the old himself that was so into her. It shows that what he is doing – looking for Sasuke – is not _mainly_ for Sakura…

    (…because I don’t ship SasuSaku. I just don’t.) /ducks from SasuSaku supporters

  • October 31, 2009 at 2:07 amqueenie

    @ George–

    If that happened, Kishi would have to go into hiding and I think the internet would die from all the Narutards posting on the 19+ million forums. /nods to self

    @ crystal_ –

    /saves from SasuSaku shippers.
    For that matter, everyone knows that there`s no way in hell that Sasuke is going to fall in love with Sakura. It`s just…not possible at this point. The guy is full blown evil and angst all in one complete package. I`m personally still surprised that people STILL ship SasuSaku by now. Seems irrelevant now. /still wants a NaruSaku GOOD END

    ive only posted once in the past on this site, even though ive been using it for a very long time. I have to say i have lost 100% respect for sakura, i was cringing as i read this chapter. What an utter disapointment, but so damn glad Naruto took a VERY strong stand against that crap.

  • October 31, 2009 at 2:21 amezza84

    And sorry one more thing, im praying for a hinata pairing if anything for sure now, or at least alot more screen time (so to speak) for her.

  • October 31, 2009 at 2:34 amedgie

    Kekkaishi > One Piece & Bleach.

    Sorry.

  • October 31, 2009 at 2:38 amdamianthestupid

    HA! youre rich! *RC was the only place I could get away form naruto cry cry sob sob*

    you know…no one said you had to click on his post, OR better yet make a POST in the post you hated so much!

    come on dude, maybe that high and might poster was right, peoples iq drops by 20 from naturo posts, all the wannabe *Im too cool/mature/old* for naruto, when they are teh same ones that watch, read it themselves, you guys are like sakura, lying to yourselves to make yourselves look cool to other people. I definately like the *narutards* over the posers like you.

  • October 31, 2009 at 3:03 amichigoat

    im not surprised at the number of comments this particular entry received.
    i like it when naruto shrugs her off with his final words.
    and rock lee had to witness that =(

  • October 31, 2009 at 10:59 ambobo

    the author has rly bad writing and this confirms it…yet again. Think the kisame vs. killerbee is going to be a filler fight in the anime and won’t be shown in the manga, which is expected again (remember gai team vs their clones, or the three tail arc). this series is going downhill ever sice part 2 started. some exciting parts, but most of it has been bad plot development..and some plot holes too.

  • October 31, 2009 at 3:11 pmmaruko

    Hinata is the only girl for him, well at least her confession timing was much better than Sakura’s I mean seriously I know Shikimoto(spl?) was teasing Killer Bee fight but that was just wrong.

  • October 31, 2009 at 3:29 pmsonichu

    Sorry I like NaruSaku, but this way to confess was a bad time. Espically when more important things are going on in Naruto’s mind. Get over it, its just a pairings. It sounds more like Naruto has it for Sasuke anyways..

    This is getting pathetic. Its just a pairing, as NaruHina is. I never bashed it when Hinata confessed, I respect it. How come you guys can’t?

  • October 31, 2009 at 7:48 pmMark

    @Bobo: I think the writing is good, just not in the love scenes.

    And we might still get to see Killerbee’s fight.

    elephontarg is a FOOL!! BUT i can’t help but LOVE his/hers enthusiasm!! haha

  • November 1, 2009 at 3:03 amGP

    Well, I just skipped all the pages of posts because I figure they’re mostly all the same “sakura sucks” bit over and over. So thus I dunno if anyone touched on these points but I’ll bring up my view of things for the hell of it.

    This chapter was a long time coming, I was mostly expecting it. Not exactly this way but the point of it basically. This is, if you agree or not, meant to be part of Sakuras crossraod arc. It started a bit before Sai talked to her actually.

    Does she have guilt? Yes. Does she still care about Sauske? Yes. But on top of that I think she also has feelings for Naruto as well. While the Sauske bit was a childish one-sided crush on her part from the start of the manga (that got nowhere) her relationship with naruto has and still is growing. Right now this part of the manga has her at the 50/50 stage, sitting on the fence. The next chapter will probably show her being left behind to reflect even more on what she should do.

    I think there’s real Love there for naruto, more than a friend and a brother, it’s just been overshadowed by her original crush for Sauske. Though it’s been shown to be growing more and more. The Hinata “confession” was nothing more than a plot device to push Sakura more. Have we even seen Hinata since then? No. Sad truth is Hinata is a plot device character meant to push Sakura to realize her growing feelings.

    It’s still too early to call it romantic love, ofc, but this chapter/event was a long time coming regardless. The next chapter, or next 10, will work it out. So I think anyone saying Naruto x Sakura is dead is jumping the gun here.

    Shit series is shit

    To bad you’re not the majority holder or the emperor of taste

  • November 1, 2009 at 12:28 pmThunder

    @GP
    Maybe you are right, but probably, Sakura now will be the one that is with bit of troble to persuade Naruto about that love and not the contrary. Like I said, the idea was good, the execution was awful. She could have waited for a better opportunity.

  • November 1, 2009 at 8:49 pmfumizuki

    Wow everyone, relax, breathe. It’s a manga. I didn’t know people could hate a character so much especially if compared to real life she’s probably more innocent than half the girls out there and yet everyone’s calling her a slut or whore. Hinata lovers, Sakura haters, don’t get me wrong, I like Hinata, but I don’t think it’s fair to turn down Sakura so fast just because you want to see Hinata and Naruto together.

    I have to agree with Wannabe Otaku on this one. Don’t jump to conclusions so fast. Though I’m curious to who Kishi will pair up.

  • November 1, 2009 at 9:48 pmAlpha

    Wow, I knew that when I saw Naruto go up, some idiotic comments would get made, but some of these are just plain laughable. For those of you wondering, I’m with the NaruHina crowd, and though I never thought of NaruSaku as too far out, I think it’s pretty much beyond reach now. Speaking objectively, I think Naruto gave up on Sakura the moment he promised to bring Sasuke back at Konoha’s gate, and while he flirts with her on occasion, he knows that Sakura’s heart lies with Sasuke. But anyway, just a few of the comments that made me laugh (paraphrased of course):

    “Hinata can’t end up with Naruto because she barely got any character development!!”

    So? Chi Chi from Dragon Ball got even less character development than Hinata (she made only two whole appearances in that whole story), and yet she still married Goku in the end. Just as well, Bulma barely got any development with Vegeta, yet they ended up a loving couple in the end as well. Point being, it’s not the amount of development one gets, it’s the kind of development they get. That said, the fact Hinata confessed at all pretty much negates all of the lack of attention she got, because like it or not, the cat’s out of the bag now.

    “But they never resolved the whole Hinata confessing thing!”

    That doesn’t mean they (more like “he”) won’t. While I admit I am disappointed that it hasn’t been resolved yet, that doesn’t mean it was just dropped altogether. If it was, then why even bother with her confessing (and living) in the first place? Kishimoto could have just as easily had her “disappear” from the story at some point or just have her die from Pain’s attack, but apparently he chose not to. This indicates that Hinata still has a purpose in the future.

    “The Hinata ‘confession’ was nothing more than a plot device to push Sakura more.”

    This one makes me laugh the most. So following that logic, Naruto’s just going to ignore Hinata’s confession and her attempt to save his life all because Sakura made her own confession? Much more, if Sakura does truly have legit feelings for Naruto, then why is her confession so fake and made out of pity? Why didn’t she just tell him her true feelings rather than make it sound like she “loves” Naruto out of the guilt she feels? While she definitely cares about him and empathizes with him, I think any romantic feelings would have come out in this chapter. In the words of Jack Sparrow, “If you’re waiting for the oppurtune moment, that was it.”

    Just my two cents, take it or leave it.

  • November 2, 2009 at 2:39 amGiberson

    All the things that Sakura says to Naruto come off painfully shallow.

    “I liked Sasuke–but he left and you’re still here.”
    “Nobody use to like you, but now every one loves you-you’re really popular”

    Ie:
    “I guess I’ll have to settle with you.”

    I’m sitting there reading this chapter, mouth agape, thinking how ridiculous this confession is. I was glad to see Naruto call her on it, but frankly I think he should of added to the end of his statement: “And even if you were telling the truth–as if I’d date some one who is fine with “settling with me” now that I’m popular.”.

  • November 2, 2009 at 4:44 amVoidGenesis

    so yeah, naruto needs to slap sakura, he emotionally did, and now he needs to physically slap her, srsly wat is sakura thinking, i mean making naruto give on his whole ambition just for the sake of her, i mean it was her fault originally, and now after all of this, dammit, its one thing to feel sorry for naruto but to make him feel like everything he went through wasnt worth it, damn sakura ur still a child, i hope she becomes old and lonely

  • November 4, 2009 at 5:59 pmbrianleung8912

    XD self conceited bastard….. shes not that important … well maybe she is to naruto tho -.- either way she is over estimating her self value…
