I just watched the episodes 156 to 158, and I was wondering. Is it just me, or do Ranmaru's actions go right against one of the most important messages of the Naruto series; "With a precious person, you will be truly strong. You should do anything you can to protect and support him/her" I mean, he didn't just not protect or even support Raiga, he actually betrayed him and even tried to kill him. And what did Naruto do? He encouraged Ranmaru. The worst part is that Ranmaru didn't even show any regret. He just lives happily ever after, making that poor excuse of curry. Luckily the Konohamaru-filler was funny and cute ^^, or else I might stop have stopped watching Naruto completely.
