Time for some latest thoughts in regards to The Last: Naruto the movie and my last theory.
As many of you know by now, on Heaven and Earth I made a thread where I discuss ideas with some dear members there as well as gather information I need(ed) for my theories in regards to Naruto and Sakura’s potential relationship in the end and the connections that have been done in the manga and yadda yadda.
As you also know, in my last theory, the main element I based my theory on was how all this situation seems similar to me with that of the previous Naruto movie, Road to Ninja.
Besides that, I connected some of the dots between my theories along the time… So I kept talking to different members @H&E about million different things/scenarios.
About how this whole fiasco of an ending could be explained. Because yes, it is a fiasco and you don’t get to tell me otherwise!
I have plenty of reasons to call it that and plenty of arguments to make in favor of it… don’t forget that 698 chapters point towards a certain direction!
The Last: Naruto the movie and my last theory discussions on Heaven & Earth
But until then I was telling you how I and other members @H&E were debating ideas when coolcatjas, a dear member of mine, came with an interesting idea… Let me copy-paste it to you so you get the context of where we’re going with this…
Aw man if IT theory is actually what happens (but at this point, I don’t think it’s very likely) I hope they do something like The Disappearance of Haruhi did if it’s Naruto in an IT.Kyon= Naruto, Haruhi = Sakura, Nagato = Hinata, Altered World = IT (or chapter 700).
This is kinda long, but it’s so good
After which, another member opposed the idea coolcatjas was proposing…
PLZ Don’t compare my beloved Nagato to Hinata lol. Also the case is different in the disappearance of haruhi, Nagato’s personality has changed into a different personality (shy like Hinata) in a different world, but in Naruto, Hinata’s personality hasn’t changed. I don’t get what you’re trying to say here, can you explain?
And then, coolcatjas explained:
I’m not comparing them as characters but more like the situation. Hmm it’s hard to explain but I guess Kyon’s altered world is like Naruto’s 699/700.
It’s peaceful but boring,and the characters are not who they really are. Presented as an easy way out or the simple life with no troubles. Sure it’s nice but it’s not the truth.
Then as Nagato wanted Kyon to stay in the altered world, Hinata would want Naruto to stay as well or something (but of course never against their will or obligate them).
After “talking” to himself Naruto snaps out of it and chooses to get out of the IT the same way Kyon chose the original world.
So it’s not like I want it to be exactly the same but I really want to feel the same way. That scene in TDoHS was so touching and is one of my favorite moments in Anime. But that’s too much to ask for Naruto it seems.
And I would never compare Nagato and Hinata as characters ever lol. Nagato is my favorite character next to Haruhi so it would insulting if I did.
So then, after she said this, something went “Evrika?!” in my mind… A new hypothetical situation, theoretical thought you name it, came into my mind. So I say to her:
You know in RTN Naruto breaks out like that… talking to himself while remembering Jiraiya.
The Last is built on RTN as skeleton of the story…
So what if Naruto to get out so to speak, from this hypothetical genjutsu at the end, remembers Kushina’s words since the movie starts with her words while RTN starts with Jiraiya’s lesson – a ninja endures, same lesson Naruto learns when Neji dies and that he gives to Boruto only that in this crappy world Naruto puts the problem as sh*t, you don’t say that to your kid.
Ergo the NS parallel, the real one, happens at the end, Naruto breaks somehow out of genjutsu like he did in RTN by remembering Jiraiya’s words only this time he remembers his mother’s one about the weird girl, ergo NaruSaku canon.
Other ideas regarding the theory
After which, I added some other ideas, those I already posted on my Facebook page and Tumblr blog, upon continuing the discussion:
Anyway, everything is connected, Junko said to watch the movie together with everything else on Naruto, movies, manga etc.
What was the preponderent? Hina-princess but NaruSaku. Same here only that is all around Hina-princess in a world which deals with genjutsu, reality warping based on inner beliefs and selfish desires…*coughHinata’slovewhichisportrayedasselfishorsinglemindedcough*…
So, I don’t know why but major part of my theory was based on what I just said earlier and what I am gonna say now: screw it, I don’t care that much anymore anyway…
Basically all this is RTN skeleton, Shion-centered story only that the princess is Hinata-sama bla bla, touches upon bonds (Blood Prison was the one about bonds if I am correct, the one who has a NaruSaku hug which Pierrot took out of the script…)
As well, major IT or something of the sorts ergo contradiction to the highest with the canon manga.
Ergo as IT and other details (that I still don’t wanna share sorry) from my theory come to pass.
At the end of the end we might see Naruto breaking out of the IT remembering his mother’s words like he did in RTN by remembering Jiraiya’s ones, ergo parallel with canon Naruto 631 and all the circles close.
It’s all about destiny. Sakura’s one is to meet the man of her dreams – ergo NS canon (Chapter 3 contents) and Hinata’s one to become the Hyuga heir. And break that destiny of hate (look at the advertisement for the special episode with the Hyuga sisters).
Speaking of the special episode, remember RTN Sakura, the prologue one?
How she was basically flirting with Menma or something of the sorts.
I don’t know since everyone kinda teased about them: Kushina teasing Naruto about the hero’s daughter and Ino saying in that Charasuke special Audio CD/DVD that the one matching Sakura was the gentle like Minato-san, Menma-kun.
Funny how RTN Ino is some sort of canon Hinata matching Naruto and Sakura and in The Last we have Sakura matching Naruto and Hinata, while in the end Charasuke kind of sticks with RTN Hinata who had a Karin-like personality…
Weird, isn’t it? when she sees canon-Sakura going all fangirl 101 on Charasuke.
That special was to show us that no matter the universe – NS is destined ergo Red thead of fate concept I talked about in my theory.
This is the destiny that must happen, while the Hyuga special shows us that the destiny that must happen is that Hinata is Hyuga heir but also breaks that destiny with the hate between her and her sister – mark my words – just as it happened to Neji…
Yes, he changed his destiny but also what was destined to happen was destined to happen: him to die in order to protect a Hyuga main branch member, Hinata-sama.
So yeah, that’s basically it… I’ve said it. I wanted to keep this all for myself but bleh, i don’t care anymore…
Might all be true and us all lost a good portion of our lives for a shitty ending like this but meh, who knows…?
Maybe there really is more to it. I want to see the movie to get my answers, that’s all…
PS: forgot to say that all this seems like different pieces of ideas/scenarios/scripts yadda yadda patched together in a ultimate movie (kind of like the movie with Shion + RTN + canon manga IT dreams) that makes it seem in a way which might be but it also might be something else.
Also the scarf thing is the red herring. They try to force it as NaruHina paralleling MinaKushi when canon manga and Road to Ninja showed us that the one that parallels MinaKushi is nevertheless, NaruSaku no matter the universe we’re in. Apparently, they found an universe where NaruHina parallels MinaKushi…
That’s what I believe it might be the case, to be honest regarding The Last: Naruto the movie and my last theory… Otherwise as I said, I see no logical way in which this could be explained without Kishi ruining his 15 years of legacy, unless he sold out… And I want to think better of Kishi, I want to think that all this is just his other Obito Uchiha narrative feinting 2.0, otherwise the results of this movie will be disastrous and I don’t even want to imagine what comes next.
But that’s another thing for another day to discuss…We’ll touch upon that at the right time.
Until then, don’t forget to leave your thoughts down below.
