Coloring Naruto - 9 pictures of Itachi
I mean, I don’t love Naruto as much anymore, but bleak, complex shows with morally ambiguous protagonists have kinda been my thing lately. I also watched True Detective and The Wire this summer; all A+ shows, IMO
a couple of nerds, maybe ill do the rest of the akatsuki later
you’d think i’d have something better to spend my time on
based on this obvi
I really love villains
not in a ‘poor baby is so misunderstood’ way
in a ‘your amorality is so fascinating and delicious’ way
disperfection said: I know how you feel,I feel nearly the same but I got some more researchs about konan,she is different than saku n ino,she still has that potentional and charisma,it just didn’t explained :/ and the rest of the rant,I couldnt agree more,akatsuki FTW!
Yeah, I definitely don’t think that Konan is the same as Sakura and Ino. All three of them are distinct characters. I just don’t like that they all seem to serve the same exact purpose to their respective teams (balance + support). If Kishi had only done this once it wouldn’t have been as big a deal, but he does this almost every. single. time.
And I’m sorry, but I really don’t think I’ll ever care that much about Konan but I’d be interested in hearing why you like her so much (I just messaged you). The fact that we never learned much about her outside of her love/dedication for Yahiko and Nagato bores me. Like, who even is Konan? I wish she had her own personality independent of the other two, and I feel like that’s a reasonable expectation to have of a character and would have been totally manageable without betraying the point of her character.
But yeah- Overall, I still have <3 for the Akatsuki
farmergaara sent me 11 of 15 but i forgot which one this one is but i didnt do the other one because i couldnt think of anything gomen
so have a kiss on the back i didnt know which mask to make him kiss so i just made him kiss his actual back
disperfection said: why do you dislike pein and konan? I understand nagato but you might be wrong at konan at being too nice you know :D
Omg I JUST now saw this, so sorry for that late response!..I wish Tumblr gave you notifications for post replies because I must seriously miss so many of these.
Anyhow…I guess it’s not that I dislike them so much as I was disappointed with how they turned out. They’re just so bland to me, and what was supposed to be their angsty backstory fell flat, especially in comparison to the plethora of other angsty backstories that preceded them.
And it’s not that I wanted them to be reduced to two-dimensional caricatures- there are soooo many examples out there of morally corrupt characters out there who are still able to show modicums of humanity here and there that both endear them to the audience and establish them as multifaceted, complex characters. The way Kishi wrote Pein and Konan…it was just so typical. Konan could have been a really awesome female villain. I can admire her for her loyalty, and she was pretty powerful but she played a role similar to Sakura, Hinata, Ino etc. In regards to the overall narrative, nothing makes her stand out to me. And don’t even get me started on Nagato getting convinced to resurrect everyone and undo all that he had been working towards for years after Naruto told him a story! SMH. I don’t even read the manga anymore, that whole arc was a flop way to end the reign of what once was a mysterious and threatening criminal organizatin and was part of what made me quit.
So I can appreciate how the Ame orphans were good friends and all, and were able to start a movement and all, but I have zero emotional attachment to them and think they were disappointing as antagonists. HOWEVER this is all my opinion. People that subscribe to the whole friendship theme of the the series probably like them, and that’s just as valid.
