Okay...so... I don't consider myself a Naruto fan anymore. I didn't for a really, really, really long time yet I still kept up with the series because it really doesn't take much effort to read a chapter of it each week. And if it's bad there was always One Piece to look forward too, which is always good so it never bothered me.
Also, I didn't particularly like the way Naruto ended. Hell, I didn't like the entire final story arc aside from a few choice scenes and battles here and there. The entire premise of the war wasn't very alluring to me. However, the shit-storm mostly comes by with how neatly everything is wrapped up in a bow at the end with everyone marrying and getting weird looking hybrid children.
Whatever though. It's done. It's over. If you liked the ending, more power to you. It's just a work of fiction. And hey, maybe now you'll have some time to check out something even better. I'd be glad to help anyone out with that if they valued my opinion enough.
However, there's always that one corner of any fanbase that's scary no matter how good or bad or predictable or obvious the outcome of a manga is and that's the pairing wars. There's Naruto X Hinata people and there's the Naruto X Sakura people. I don't give a shit about pairing wars obviously. I'm a guy who draws humiliating pictures of video game and anime guys on the internet (Still working on that next page by the way) so I'm not one for it, but I know a lot of people are. That's okay.
Then comes the problem of obsessing over this shit and that's where this nonsense starts. Apparently on the day the final chapters came out there was some heavy traffic on a few forums where the fans of "NaruSaku" (or however the name fusion is supposed to be typed) were just... going crazy for a lack of a better word. Not all of them. There's exceptions to every rule. It's like saying all Sonic fans are angry idiots. I'm a Sonic fan. I'm not an idiot. I admittedly get angry pretty often but I'm no idiot.
That's to be expected though. Their fantasy concerning these two fictional characters didn't come true. Even though, personally, I feel it should have been obvious Naruto was going to end up with Hinata (her character serves no other point really) I can understand being upset... I guess.
So as an outlet, a considerable number of people who liked that pairing went out and started to do some crazy things. They created this... fan-character on tumblr called Shinachiku Uzamaki and he's apparently supposed to be the son of Naruto and Sakura. He doesn't look much different from Bolt (Boruto) except he's got a different hair-style and his eyes are green... like Sakura's.
Okay so... there's nothing wrong with that... I mean, its fan-fiction. Fan-art. I love that stuff... but then weirder more disgusting shit starts to happen. Apparently they made a facebook page (It's closed down now) that was created with the slogan of wanting to kill Kishimoto. Had almost 200 likes too...
Not enough crazy for you? Well, apparently Kishimoto's assistant was also flooded with tons of tweets demanding an explanation on why he decided to end it the way he did and even demand that he change it.
Now, keep in mind, that these are people who have read the manga before it's been officially released over here in America; which means they're all reading it for free on the internet and yet somehow still feel they were ripped off of something. Maybe if they were people who purchased the DVDs or bought the manga I'd understand it a bit more (The being angry. Not the lashing out.) but even then, do none of them understand just how insane and rapid they're coming off as by doing this?
I see even more now why Oda doesn't bother with romance crap. I thought this was bad when it came to the Inuyasha base but good God.
Bad ending or not, the only thing you really have a right to do is be angry and cope in your own way by writing fanfiction and making fan-art. It isn't license to react like rapid monsters towards the very person you have to thank for creating this series you're so obsessed about in the first place. I guess the mentality here is that "Now that Kishimoto is done with Naruto, he's no longer of use to us."
Cause fuck real living people right? It's all about the fictional characters and your fantasy pairings. Whatever.
I'm still hard at work guys. Just give me a bit more time.
