    ...what if it wasn?t "Naruto", but "Sasuke"?

    What I mean is, what if the main character was Sasuke instead of Naruto? What is we, instead of watching Naruto rescuing Gaara, would right now be watching Sasuke?s training with Oro? I thought of it when I saw this pic:

    It just felt like, what if Shippuuden wasn't about Naruto chasing Sasuke and Akatsuki, but about what Sasuke chasing after Itachi. Would that be good or bad? Probably good, but would it be better than "Naruto: Shippuuden"?

    The fans would have an orgasm but it would be the most emo manga of all time

    It would be a much less bloody and gory version of Berserk...

    I like it the way it is. Not knowing what Sasuke's doing and watching him from the sidelines is far, far more interesting.

    then the show would be called "Sauske"

    and the everything would be exactly the same... except in the show... Naruto would actually be named Sauske instead... and Sauske would be named Naruto. everything would be exactly the same as now except the names would be changed.

    No, he's saying the character focus switches. Naruto is still the bumbling idiot, and Sasuke is the superior Ninja, the hero. Only we watch him turn to the dark side as he pursues Itachi.

    well see, what if naruto and sakura switched names? and of course naruto always went all out in a badass was with the kyuubis chakra, with both being evil, using each other to accomplish their goals?

    that would be uber-cool

    I think Naruto is a better hero, simply because of the way is not perfect. I think it would be very interesting to see things from SasUKE's point of view, but he is too up himself for me to love him like I love Naru-kun.

    That's actually interesting thinking. It probably wouldn't develop as much however. I can't imagine Oro or Sasuke being very social people, so the story would have a very limited amount of characters and therefore minimal dialogue and probably a bit boring. What he's doing right now though? Probably still getting taught by Oro..same ol' same ol'

    Because of the fact that Sasuke is a natural genius he will never be an underdog unless being compared to Itachi, therefore if the show was based around sasuke there would be only one main conflict and one chance for development and that would be achieved by overcoming his brother. Naruto on the other hand being an underdog has a wealth of development that the show can showcase, so in the end a manga or show based around Sasuke wouldn't have enough plot development to really succeed

    Wind has nothing to do with Sasuke so the name Shippuuden wouldn't really be right.

    Another trend brought from the library to the TV section...

    The anime would be boring for me, to say the least.

    Who was attacking anyone? :huh

    No need to get angry and act reminiscent of a badger with numbety nuts nuts.



    And why is everyone else being so literal here...

    He's basically saying; Do you think Sasuke's storyline makes a better storyline for a main character, with the bad background, the evil brother, the selling soul to evil, the having to consider killing his best friend, and etcetera.

    Could the storyline have worked as a main one, with an antagonistic main character, and we watch his decline into evil as he makes his decisions.



    Wow... Really, just... wow... :oh

    ^ Good answer.

    Me too, I got really quite sick of Berserk which is basically that story, just more bloody :p
