Japanese fandom not being so positive about SasuSaku in regards to Naruto series finale and The Last: Naruto the movie

As a general consensus given the first part of Naruto franchise, it is very well known that SasuSaku had once upon a time a quite large fanbase, given Sakura’s love for Sasuke in her early pre-teens. This was, however, all back in Part 1 when Sasuke hand’t had left Konoha, when Team 7 meant something more to him than it latter becomes, when his connections with them were still active.

However, as Part 1 finishes and Sasuke ruptures his tie with his former comrades, the situation between them becomes more and more complex and morally-gray over the course of the series, Sakura, however, getting what one would call “the short stick” given that in canon, after Sasuke has broken his bond with her, broken remains and no matter Sakura’s desperate pleas, she doesn’t get to touch his soul, like the likes of Itachi, Naruto and to some extent, Karin Uzumaki as well.

However, given its former glory, at the end of the series, given that chapter 700 suggests to us that ironically, Sakura and Sasuke have ended up together with a kid that looks like a copy-cat of Karin Uzumaki, and the latest news in regards to The Last: Naruto the movie, one would have expected that the reception of SasuSaku in Japan would be maybe somewhat better seen.

However, apparently it happens that not even SasuSaku can get under the skin of the Japanese fandom given its context in the ending following the manga’s events.

On 2ch, after the release of the movie fans have quickly gathered to discuss impressions and the Anti-The Last thread seems to be the popular one where critiques in regards to Naruto’s ending given its presented context in canon manga,  are discussed, SasuSaku had its turn and some interesting opinions in regards to their dynamics have surfaced:

特にサスケはガチで
Especially Sasuke was serious
誤解でも何でもなくマジで殺しかけたんだぞ
It wasn’t a misunderstanding to anything. He really tried to kill her.
それを何も無かったかのように終わりよければすべて良しってか
Now they’re showing it as if the ending is okay there was nothing wrong?
これ賞賛してる信者は頭膿んでるだろ
Fans that are praising this have something wrong in their brain

しかも殺し方が無駄に陰湿だったから余計に印象強いんだよな
Especially the way he tried to kill her was very cruel it left an impression
千鳥で顔面潰し殺そうとしたり首根っこ掴み上げて首チョンパしかけたり
He tried to smash her face with a chidor held her neck and tried to cut it
しかも最終話ギリギリまで「お前に愛される筋合いも愛する道理も無いと」とか吐き捨てトドメはエグい幻術
Until the very last he said “I have no reason to be loved or to love you” and he put her in a cruel genjutsu
そんで699話で急に不自然に愛想振り撒き出して
Then in 699 he’s suddenly acting all nice
そこから一気に時間が飛んで子作りしましたとかナメとんのかとしか言いようが無い
Then suddenly time has passed and they made kids~are they making fun of us
こんなんが通用するならオオノキのジジイとモエギ当然の歳の差婚すら
常識に出来るわ
If this is acceptable a marriage between Onoki and Moegi should be applicable
要は生物学的に子供さえこさえられれば組み合わせなんて誰とでもいいんじゃねーか
As long as they can make kids biologically the pairing doesn’t seem to matter
そんなんで恋愛()とか片腹痛いわ
It’s laughable that they call this romance
これは最後の恋愛がどうのこうのに限らず作品全体においてそういういい加減な部分が多すぎた
Not only regards to love but the whole story was so half-assed
憎しみの根本的問題やカグヤ関連全部ぶん投げるわ
サスケが無罪放免になったのをカカシの数コマの説明のみで済ませるわ、ふざけるにも程がある
They threw away the problems of the cycle of hatred, the Kaguya relations,
Sasuke was redeemed with only the few panels of Kakashi
There is a limit to who bad they can do their work
もはや起承転結の基本すら成立して無いんだよ
It doesn’t have the complete introduction, turn, development, conclusion
15年も世に垂れ流しといてこれは無いわ
They did this for 15 years and this is just unacceptable

岸本「あれはうちは特有のうちは病が出て暴走してただけです」の一言あったらまぁ納得いくかな
If they had Kishi say, “That was Uchiha sickness” it could have been understandable

猟奇連続殺人やっといて、精神鑑定で責任能力なしの判定で無罪です
と言われた時のやるせなさだよな、うちは病が悪いんですーっての
The Uchiha sickness Is as unacceptable as having a serial killer be judged as not guilty due to some mental sickness

悪いのはうちはの遺伝子のせいですで済ませながら
悪い遺伝子を平気で残す精神がすごいね。
It’s amazing that they could produce the bad Uchiha DNA when they keep on insisting that everything is wrong from this DNA

たぶん根本的な理由はそこにあるんだと思う。
The core reason is there
うちは遺伝子が悪いんです
The Uchiha DNA is wrong is a double edged sword
と言うのは大変危険な諸刃の剣で
個人の犯罪歴を免責になる代わりに
その悪害を撒き散らす血を残さない責任も生じる。
In place of not being responsible for individual crimes they will be responsible for not producing further of those harmful seeds
世の中都合のいいことばかりじゃないってことだね。
The world is not always beneficial
漫画を読んでる子供達が、罪の言い逃れをした男がその罪を丸乗せした遺伝子を平気で残す話のバカバカしさに気がつけないのが痛々しい。
It’s painful that the kids reading the manga don’t realize how stupid it is that a man who was excused from crimes is producing the DNA that caused them in the first place

Given the context of the dynamics between the two of them presented to us in the latest chapters precending the series’ finale along with the dynamics presented in the second part of Naruto series, SasuSaku’s relationship dynamic seems to, at the end of the day, leave behind a worrying message as concluded by Japanese audience itself.
