      :hmm You know, I've always thought Karin was meant to contrast Sakura ever since I first read chapter 356. http://z.[Blocked Domain]/store/manga/8/39-356.0/compressed/006.jpg?v=11192681205 Why did Kishi draw Sakura walking past Karin (a whopping 1/2 page panel at that too)? I mean, plot-wise there was nothing achieved except creating a bit of suspense at the end of 355. So clearly it must have been a parallel (or contrast) between the two girls. :hmm

      And I guess 635 only emphasised that contrast. (Holy crud, 356 abd 635 - same numbers in a different combination o.O Talk about coincidence. :lmao )

      But yeah, I totally agree with key differences in the depth and endurance of their love for Sasuke. *nods* Kishi has made the contrast as clear as day and night.

      Re: "if you work hard enough the girl you kind of liked will end up liking you back!!!" idea. I've always hated that notion being used for shounen manga. It really reduced the girls to trophies. And as a result, a very uninteresting romance too. *shakes head* I'm so glad the trope is being subverted by many manga now.

      In the end, neither NS nor SK have much material to base for debating. :lmao SK, I agree, has far less substance given Sasuke's obvious lack of interest + the continual turding of Karin --> Sasuke by Suigetsu and Orochimaru (especially in 635). The fact that Karin found the stabbing incident to be "irresistible" bombed any (minute) chance of emotional reconciliation with Sasuke (not that there was an emotional connection to begin with). :lmao

      (Actually, I think Karin's perverted obsession with Sasuke was 99% likely Orochimaru's influence. She is loyal to him, and has been serving him for quite a while, after all. Mistreatment was probably the norm for her. xD)

      As for NS, everything boils down to misinterpretations and fallible arguments. The facts against the pairing are obvious when the manga is not selectively read. The fact that Kishi has emphasised Sakura's love for Sasuke over Naruto's, the fact that Hinata's love is shown progress etc., make it obvious that the girls' feelings matter more than the hero's old crush - a crush which hasn't even been treated seriously by the hero himself. NS died really, after the failfession arc. That's why I sometimes feel frustrated at the circular arguments the zombie presents. It relies far too much on other pairings not happening, and depending on other unlikely side ships (like SK). It relies far too much on substance like parallels which prove nothing for NS. :lmao

      (I'm not saying Naruto doesn't love Sakura because he clearly does. It's just that his love feels more platonic now. Maybe it's because he placed Sakura's love for Sasuke over his own, dunno.)

      Oh yeah, I recall bringing up that point about Sakura confessing despite saying how she knew Sasuke hated her. XD I agree, if he liked her back it'd more a pleasant surprise. But even as things are, the fact that she feels fulfilled by his existence alone is admirable- what an unconditional love! :cry So unconditional that I don't see her moving on at all. (And hence why NS just falls apart as usual.)

      Aw, I'm glad you enjoy the posts. smile-big

      I was the same! I was dubious of NS even before the failfession. Though, I recall some people feeling a little insecure about SS back then, because of Karin's interactions with Sasuke (the obvious Karin --> Sasuke infatuation) that accompanied the vague NS "moments". The hachibi fight (and Sasuke extinguishing amaterasu on Karin), plus tidbits of Karin's fear and concern towards Sasuke as he descended to darkness etc., were over-analysed as a result of this co-occurrence. Me being the obstinate SS fan was dubious of both pairings because of their lack of clear mutual romantic context. *cough*I was the first member to join the anti-SK FC (my previous username was "kawaii deidei chan") *cough* XD

      But yeah, I found it an amusing coincidence that Karin getting stabbed and NS receiving the failfession happened virtually at the same time (the incidents were only a few chapters apart). Both pairings simultaneously got the axed of their plausibility, imo. :laugh

      Re: Sasuke's ambiguous feelings: IKR. If it were another character, the ambiguity argument may have been baseless. But we're dealing with Sasuke here - a boy of whose character revolves around subtle gestures. :hmpf And yes, there would be no plot if Sasuke was revealed to reciprocate Sakura's feelings in the first place. We all know how much Kishi loves suspense. Besides, if Sasuke's feelings weren't kept ambiguous, I don't think we'd have been as touched to see Sakura work hard for a goal that otherwise may have been fruitless (in our eyes, at least, because I don't think Sakura cares at all about reciprocity). :lmao

      Haha ty! Yes, I finished my exams. Fortunately I aced them, I feel (I study psychology). :laugh

      Btw, I really liked your post in the SS FC. Especially the point how Kishi deliberately ambiguated Sakura --> Naruto until the Iron Country arc. It really shows that Kishi knows what he's doing; ambiguity has plot relevance, it's not a product of inconsistent writing. :nod

      Also, ty for the "welcome back" on tumblr. It's true that I may not have been away for long, but I was extremely exhausted from exams so seeing your comment made my day. :heart
