This is really unexpected. I was checking out Naruto X UT OVA and suddenly it just hit me – how would Naruto unfold? What will the ending be like? I hope I am alive when that happens.
I’ve been following Naruto manga recently, and things are getting really exciting. For me, at least it is. Now that Pain has finally been defeated by Naruto in Naruto Shippuuden, I really wanted the anime to quickly continue the story. Usually I’ll have little discussions with friends about how the next few chapters may turn out to be like, but we never really discussed about how would Naruto end. Perhaps we thought it would be pointless for us to guess. Masashi Kishimoto had pull out a few surprises before.
The little animation presented by UNIQLO was very interesting. I don’t know how they come up with the idea but I really like it. It was a fun ride. For most fans, another Naruto versus Sasuke fight is inevitable. I believe I’ve mentioned this before – to me, the whole point of Naruto is very a Naruto versus Sasuke thing. So this short OVA totally echo my perspective. To think they will fight again, with different audience this time (of course the secret audience has to be different!), and probably on the same venue is just so appropriate. Naruto and Sasuke both came a long way. Both aspired to be stronger albeit for different reasons. They share similar pain of loneliness but not entirely the same. They should be best friends! However, fate has it otherwise.
I like how the OVA made Sasuke and Naruto fight before Uchiha Madara a.k.a Tobi is dead/defeated. I’ve always wanted both Sasuke and Naruto to fight Madara together. Like it or not, I root for Sasuke to become who he was before he left Konoha. I don’t wish for him to be all friendly and loving. The Sasuke before leaving Konoha is good enough. A sudden thought popped into my head during the last few minutes of the OVA. Will Sasuke be permanently blind in the future? Manga readers now await Sasuke possible new power since he underwent the eye transplant to have Itachi’s. I don’t think he will be blind but who knows. If he does, then what will happen?
Well, this is just my two cents. Nonetheless, there are really tons of questions burning in me regarding one of the best selling shōnen anime/manga. If I am to take the OVA seriously, I have another question. It is a weird question. Just what is the meaning of the sound of a baby crying at the end of it???
