A Rant on Uchiha Sasuke
Warning: Spoilers. (for people who are not updated on the Naruto manga)
And if you like (or love) Sasuke too much, that you hate his haters, I suggest you leave now.
This won't be pretty.
Well, Im pretty sure Im going to be hated by Sasuke fangirls for this (and Im used to it), but I have to voice out my thoughts or I wont be able to rest in peace. Though honestly Im only guessing this wont be my last. (laugh) Actually, I dont know where to start. Please expect a long piece of art.
Before anything else, I would like to thank a friend who I call my rant buddy for continuously ranting with me. You know who you are.
Added to that, I do not enjoy waking up in the morning to know later on that day someone is trying to pick a fight with me just because I have my hates. Yes, Im talking about Sasukes fans, more or less, his fangirls. See, I would respect someones opinion on Sasuke if they are a fan (and I have done so before so dont get me wrong), but if you dont respect my opinion the result is clear. I will not respect you.
But at times, I cant help wonder why people still root for this Uchiha. There are many reasons for someone to hate him, and for someone like me, I cant find any reason for me to like him. Sure, hes been brought up the wrong way, guided by some wrong influence, but could he be any more blinded?
Alright, lets go back to the beginning of it all. Sasuke we know his clan was killed by his very own brother. We can understand that anyone would be very much traumatized if this happened to ones self. That doesnt mean that we would avoid treasuring newly made friends, does it? If it were me, I would work hard to protect my friends if I had some evil brother. Wouldnt that have been more sensible?
But no, Sasuke couldnt see it. No matter how many times people teach him something, he is blinded by the idea of revenge. Revenge may be sweet but what would he do after that?
Hes hurt the friends that have been trying to help him in life. Unfortunately, he prevented anyone from helping him. No man is an island. No one is alone in this world. He didnt see that. He thought he could help himself. He thought he was alright on his own.
What would you do if I took the most precious people away from you? Sasuke
I dont have anyone left. (smile) Kakashi
I may be wrong, but the idea is the same. Kakashi is emotionally stable. When this scene played before me, I was hoping Sasuke got the message. I shouldnt have hoped.
Whats worse is that, not only did he ignore them, he hurt his friends. I wouldnt do such a thing even if I had a choice. He had a choice. Sasuke could have ignored Orochimaru who bribed him. Sasuke was hungry for power to be able to kill Itachi, unable to see his friends tried to stop him, to help him. Blinded with the idea of power, he betrayed not only his friends, but even his village. Did it not occur to him that he was somehow following his brothers steps at that time? Thats the irony of it all.
One thing that really gets me to hate him is that, Sasuke has only been winning most of his recent fights out of luck. How could he possibly escape Deidaras explosive jutsu? Deidara is was, actually an S-classed missing nin. He had more experience than Sasuke did, and sure, he was reckless but it was still pretty a checkmate for the Uchihas side. Its senseless. I may just be angered because I love Naruto, I love Deidara, I love Itachi but think about it. Who should have more chances of dying, one with less experience or someone with more?
Dont get me wrong, Kishimoto-san, I enjoy reading Naruto. And I know that Sasuke is needed in the story. What I dont understand is how someone like Deidara could die just like that. It doesnt follow the idea of fighting in a battle. Actually its supposed to be a main characters ability to escape the villains. Sasuke may be a main character, just not the main character which the story revolves around.
For crying out loud, its called Naruto, isnt it?
Another thing I do not like about Sasuke is his way of life. I may have said it a million times before, but let me say it in an official rant. His way of life is utterly senseless. First of, revenge. Second of all, he cant just return to Naruto and say, Oh hey, Im sorry I almost killed you. Are we still friends?
You know, I didnt pity him at all when he shed tears in chapter 402. Yes, this chapter is very familiar to a good number of you, isnt it? You may stop reading if you do not wish to spoil yourself if you do not know this chapter and want to wait until you reach it.
Sasuke killed Itachi. Successfully. No, actually, Itachi ran out of energy. He didnt plan to kill Sasuke. He wanted to save him, take everything hes done back. He wanted Sasuke to look like the hero. He loved his younger brother.
After Sasuke was told why Itachi killed the clan, which is because they were planning a coup détat and because he loved the village, he was told that Itachi couldnt dare himself to kill his brother, the brother he loved more than the village. He was told that Itachi did it for Konoha. Itachi smiled before his death, because he had so many plans for Sasuke, to look like a hero, to be the hero. And what does Sasuke say after he cried for him?
He wanted to crush Konoha.
After all Itachis done! I couldnt believe what I just read. After all the things Itachi went through in his life, Sasuke was just going to destroy it all. Itachi experienced war when he was only a 4-year-old. He had to kill his family for the villages sake. They hid that fact so the village saw him as the bad guy which is rather sad and hurtful for someone who did nothing but do good even if it seemed horrible and cruel. Didnt Sasuke see the burden placed on Itachis shoulders?
Didnt he see where he was going? Did he not think about the fact that Itachi loved Konoha and did everything for it? And now he was just going to destroy the village his brother loved?
The sad part is that there is still this question, the same question I asked before: What will he do after?
He may as well look for a girl (to use and throw away later on) and revive the clan. Note this: He never seemed to have wanted love. All he wanted out of life was revenge, and amen I say to you, he fails at life.
Why again? I have another reason. Think about it. After crushing Konoha, yes, he may as well start the clan. But! Wouldnt he give it a bad name?
See here, everyone already knew of Madara (the real identity of Tobi) and how he fought against the first Hokage. People suspected him to have controlled the Kyuubi (the Nine-tailed Demon Fox for those who dont even know) like he has before to destroy Konoha himself. There was the coup détat that was planned out by the Uchihas. And then there is Itachi, known for killing the clan and joining the Akatsuki as a sign of betrayal (although he didnt betray them even). And now Sasuke wants to destroy Konoha itself.
He is not going to be the hero Itachi wanted him to be. He will bring disgrace to his clans name. There is no point in reviving it if all it will do is suffer. This is why I think Sasuke does not have any brains no matter how knowledgeable he is in the arts of the ninja.
He has no wisdom.
I think Ill have to end it here and now. I wouldnt want to bore you. Plus, Im guessing that if you are a fangirl, you are hating me with all your heart right now.
Go ahead and oppose me, fangirls. The only result that will come out of it is another essay from yours truly.
Farewell, dear reader. Know this: I will return.
