    Has anyone else noticed that it's kinda odd that the Japanese hand gesture for a boyfriend or girlfriend is an outstretched pinky finger and the last view of young Naruto and Sasuke is one where they sort of "shake hands" with their pinky fingers?

    For anyone decently versed in Japanese culture, is this a common thing, or does it have no significance whatsoever? Just something I thought of.

    Yup, Naruto is completely unslashable. Yup, no slash whatsoever endorsed by the author. Absolutely none. Nothing there, not even a little hint of it.

    Yup yup yup. No kissing, no feeling each other up, no relationship. Nothing, no no no!


    :oh Someone help me, please....

    They didnt shake with their pinkies. It was the Index and middle fingers they used.

    But in all seriousness, bonds probably being showcased. That, and the future prospect of mansex.

    Wow, chalk up another for homosexual undertones.

    (Even if it wasn't their pinkies or w/e, there are 435345 other scenes which add to the gay thing)

    The question is, does MK do this intentionally or are we just hypersensitive to sexual references? *scratches chin*

    No, he knows that two male leads make for a large yaoi fanbase. And the more interesting and ambiguous their dynamic, the bigger the fanbase. A lot of authors and manga-ka are aware of this, so every now and then they throw out some fanservice to keep them keen.

    The Hug from 307 was a good example of this.

    That, and we see sex in everything. :(

    Our culture has become way too focused on homosexuality for a culture that apparently doesn't want to do anything with it.

    The very first two villians were gay.

    Then you had Oro (Though he's a pedo too).

    Sasuke and Naruto argue like an old married couple. Gay.

    Same for Sakura and Ino.

    Shika is loving it fat with Chouji.

    Final piece of evidence; Sai

    The series is gay and bi friendly. Transexual too if you include Naruko.


    Jiraiya is the only straight person in the series.

    But he's a pedo. Remember, he would only teach Naruto in Sexy no jutsu form!

    No, Neji and Hinata are the only real heterosexual pair in the whole series.

    Does 1010 count as gay? She not a real character so does she actually have a gender?

    *jumps under bed*

    Eh, who cares about gender? Gay is more to describe likes and dislikes.

    And since 1010 is in the hoots with 0634 who doesn't have a gender either.....

    If everybody stopped looking at p0rn, nobody would say or notice this stuff. Perverts.

    And it's just a symbol of their friendship. They are supposed to be best friends.

    Even if they did shake with their pinkies, it would have been the "pinky swear", not the boyfriend/girlfriend symbol :oh Didn't you guys do this as children?

    In asian cultures, people are said to be connected by red threads of destiny by their pinky fingers. And women in the... Heian period, I think, would cut off their pinkies and send them to their husbands as a display of their loyalty.

    [/smartass]

    Sasunaru are still gay, though XD

    Or maybe...

    It was supposed to show that Naruto and Sasuke had a true mutual respect for each other and... Just a shake. I really don't think Kishi is interested in promoting that kind of stuff.

    They toyed a little with the fingers. Big deal.

    I dont think this is proof enough that they plan to sodomize each other.

    Our minds are so warped, we can't help but see it as gay. <3

    And that's how Kishimoto's made his millions! :D

    Yeah, he's such a PIMP, I mean, he reads nongraphic pr0n. Wow, so do I.

    Harem is....where? Girls are in....book? Kakashi's virginity....well, I'm not going to look at Yondaime with that, nope, not at all.

    Yeah, what a pimp. His mother beats him up, all girls beat him up, he's a lazy punching bag. Color me unimpressed.

    Asuma on the other hand was hetero, but that's only because of Kurenai.

    And we know where Asuma is now.....

    WOW !

    Congrats to the thread starter for actually recognizing that his manga has *GASP* SasuNaru hints, undertones or whatever it is called :omg !

    Can't wait for your next thread when you recognize about one of the 40 other ones in there or so.

    I find it funny to see people claiming that there is no SasuNaru in Naruto at all and it's all made up while exact same people claimed that the chapter cover of Hinata was a hint of NaruHina. That's such a twisted logic, it's simply hilarious :laugh !

    If they were arguing SakuHina, then I'd be more inclined to be sympathetic.

    But quite frankly, SasuNaru/NaruSasu/WTFever is the ONLY pairing that is cannon and supported for Naruto and Sasuke.

    And thanks for refreshing my memory on that particular cover.:wink
