    I wanted to see a Neji Jr with Ten Ten being a mother rather than a sad lonely lady.

    I wanted to see Neji being a dad..

    But I really really wanted to see him fight sasuke a byakugan vs sharingan battle.

    Neji was allegedly planned from the start to die according to kishimoto.

    ironic since he started off spouting about destiny and how theres no escaping it.

    Then Naruto says destiny is bullshit.

    EoS Comes and Naruto is the child of prophecy who is in some cycle with sasuke every reincarnation.

    and Neji dies as he was fated to be.

    I'd say Kishimoto did it on purpose.

    truth be told he outlived his intended run. due to the format of the story and plot, there wasn't much that kishi could have done with him. if the cast was smaller then perhaps we could have got more from neji.

    Funny how people seem to think Neji was right in the end. Naruto kept fighting destiny up to the very end. Indra and Ashura were always meant to fight and kill one or the other to the bitter end. They were meant to reincarnate to keep replicating that destiny but Naruto fought that destiny and ended the chain. He fought that one thing he was literally destined to do: to be part of a never ending sibling rivalry. So if we're talking about destiny being pre-determined, Naruto just kicked that in the balls by finally settling things right with his counterpart: Sasuke.

    He still could have given him a real fight in the war arc imo.

    I guess that Kishimoto just didn’t care. Team Gai was screwed.

    Neji should have died vs Kidomaru.

    Yup. That would have been a far more meaningful death. His death in the manga IRL seemed like an afterthought. It was very cheap.

    sure neji could have kicked more ass during the war but it would have just been fanservice at that point. kind of like how zoro always gets to stab somebody in every arc but rarely has a situation where the rest of the heroes lives depend on his actions. at the very minimum, that is the level of attention neji should be getting. its pointless using side characters once in a blue moon, it just renders them to plot devices.
