The Homosexual Reading of Naruto
The kiss was for pure comedic value, it wouldn’t be the first manga or series in the world where that’s happened. Obviously you don’t follow bleach very well for although there are no kissing scences between teen boys, there are several scences of blatant homophobic behavior between members of the soul society and arrancar. So you say it’s the author I agree its called good story telling, it makes it more interesting it makes for good convo n debate.
Typical universal adolescent behavior… (you also forgot Naruto is a bit of a peeping tom)
Starting back to Pre-Shippuden Naruto, he is between 10 and 13yrs of age what average male child goes into detail of why he “loves” a girl besides the fact(s) she’s pretty n smart n is nice. And yes at that point in time of life, love is equivalent to crush. What you’re stating is that his crush is void and thats wrong those are his feeling towards her you can’t negate that. When sakura confessed her love for him isnt much of a valid example, you say he was blase. I say he was shocked and skeptical, all this time the girl whom he loved and that’s been completely infatuated with the person I consider to be my best friend suddenly loves me, something is just not right and he was right. In fact he in deed did have a emotional response he was upset albeit non verbal but yes facial expressions is a form of communication. All Naruto is showing is that he is maturing.
Here’s why you and most people don’t understand this situation, In many other cultures outside of the united states in this case a far eastern one , boys are raised where this acceptable (personally, I’ve shared plenty of drunken I love you man moments with my best friends n even more so when I almost died and found out I was partially paralyzed.) Naruto is able to give up his dream because he feels that he failed since hes not able to protect one of the most important people to him. Frankly I say he was just being a self pitying little bitch but he gets over it and moves forward.
You claim there is a romance amongst the two, but there is none, it is human nature for children or adults to bond, grow fond, and respect each other even if they don’t initially like each other, especially if they are being made to spend time, work, and risk their lives for one another on a continuous basis. I see you must have done some light research on Japanese Samurai traditions but your wrong it was supposed to be only between master and apprentice not amongst students or any other male (if it did it broke the contract) and you left out the most important part that, that act ONLY happened if both parties agreed, rape was unacceptable. As far as Naruto and Jiraiya there wasn’t anything strange, Jiraiya is Naruto god-father, in most all brothel visits you see Naruto studying and Jiraiya drinking and surrounded by women, and as far as spa visits none, they were all bath houses.
It’s common for boys and men to compete for position of strongest, fastest, best, the Alpha position. And you have it backwards Sakura has and always is chasing after Naruto and Sasuke so as far as being insightful she feels insufficient for the one she loves. Yes, Naruto is quite oblivious to Hinata but he’s teen who is one tract minded so cut him slack, and I don’t know if you noticed but the kid almost became the Kyuubi because of what happened to her. You say he hasn’t tried but your rushing the author for a storyline that just started, do u want to see a love story or more fights and battles? The books are geared for adults who are somewhat perverted. He still likes Sakura so obviously he cares about her look, you don’t see Lee going bonkers over her looks
The fabled sexy-no-jutsu, you’re misinterpreting the entire meaning and its purpose. Firstly its hilarious in the manga its 1 thing, but in the anime accompanied by the music it cracks anybody up. Now Naruto is kind of dumb but he’s a smart and clever prankster he knows that most all of his teachers are closet perverts and he uses this technique to exploit that fact, therefore it gets him out of trouble sometimes, and gets Jiraiya to train him. In no way does it ever get sexual or insinuate pederasty or anything homosexual EVER. If anything it showed how perverted Jiraiya is. Here’s another assumption of yours not , Naruto is clearly is bothered by Konohamaru version of the jutsu what straight male would like to see a homosexual act portrayed in front of them . Naruto has kind of always a peeping tom so him wanting to spy isn’t really new.
You don’t have to be insecure with your sexuality, to be uncomfortable at someone staring at your penis, hell if you do look keep it to yourself… that’s what most of us thought or think in public showers
You need to pay more attention with your study, Naruto is still a child in all the chapters you’ve just mention…now the 1000 years of pain I agree not cool
Submission moves are a part of martial arts, it’s a part of combat. Almost all the characters hold weapons in their mouths so they can use their hands to do justu, and when Naruto farts he’s normally trying to concentrate too hard. Research Sigmund Freud’s theory on oral and anal fixation, because for the most part your ideas are wrong.
Naruto is a kid who grew up with no one and found a friend, a best friend, a brother, and then lost that brother. Now he’s willing to put himself through hell to save his brother.
