So it turns out that we needed to cut open the stomach of the reaper to revive all four Hokages to make a shocking revelation to the plot: Uchihas are sensitive... Seriously that's got to be the lamest way of explaining characters like Madara, Obito, and Sasuke I have ever heard in my life. Hear me out and process this for a moment:
with this explanation of the Uchiha biology for some reason being prone to destructive sensitivity, the crux of their very motives essentially becomes 'nothing about my character explains my actions, they are predetermined for no reason'. Before I end this blog, I just want to leave you all a quote from Itachi to give an example to the kinds of ideas I know Kishimoto is capable of and wished he would expand on:
[to Naruto]"If you forget about others because you now have power, and become arrogant and egotistical, you'll eventually become just like Madara(Obito)". We see exactly this in Obito and Madara's character development.
Thanks. I just had to vent because I'm
getting sick of reading all these people for some
reason thinking this was so brilliant. People used
to smear his plot by explaining all the
melodramatic and border-line nonsensical bull shit
by using the phrase "uchihas are
sensitive"; now a half-assed
biological/mystical version of that very smear is
his brilliant explanation? People don't know
a cop out when they see it.
u miss the hole point he was explaining one how
the get the mangekyu gun and what not. and how
they are unstable to me its a good explanation not
everything is in door number 2 sometimes its in
door number one right in your face.
No, it's not a
good enough explanation. what is love in the 1st
place? Is Kishi saying the uchiha love
specific persons intensely and that when those
persons they have marked for their love is hurt,
then they go apeshit?
took the lazy way out - and you can tell because
he always does this when he doesn't feel like
explaining a character's development at all.
Look at Gaara and Neji, and hell even Sasuke -
their development actually does reflect their
actions in the end (Sasuke up until he decided to
destroy Konoha). My problem with Kishimoto is that
he really has a glimmer of genius in him in a pool
of lazy bull shit. LAZY is honestly the key word
here, not stupid; he's shown us from the
beginning of the manga that he knows how to write
well and do good story telling, he simply chooses
not to in order to cater to fans or just not work
I agree that this is a sign of laziness from
Kishimoto, but it does open the door to other
explainations in the series. I think that the
Uchiha being overly sensitive with their emotions
could also be seen as a sterotype in the series. I
mean look at Itachi, he had to kill his whole
clan, abandon his village and his brother and keep
his act of heroism a secret to his grave. But
through it all he didn't become like Sasuke,
Madara or Obito. He took everything he was dealt
and made it workout in the end.
