10 Things Wrong with Naruto’s Epilogue

There are some days when I consider it 8 years my life wasted, but that’s just not fair to the series. Almost everything about Naruto was amazing in its own way (i.e. reanimating a dead ninja army was dumb, but we got to see Minato!) up to the real ending *SPOILERS STARTING NOW* where Kakashi became Hokage to lead the rebuilding of society, Sasuke actually flirted with a girl and became a nomad, and Naruto gave back Sasuke’s headband that he kept all these years.

But then there was Chapter 700. Where do I even begin?

  1. Why would anyone let Shino become a childhood educator? The patience for dealing with children is not in his character, not to mention his getup makes him look like a gang member.
  2. I can’t help but notice Onoki said Ex-Five Kage when there are only four of them.
  3. Gaara looks like he got right with Jesus and became a youth pastor. –@sutaasei
  4. Sasuke and Sakura’s daughter is named Salad.
  5. Sasuke has a daughter with Sakura.
  6. She looks like Karin.
  7. I’m not an expert on genetics, but Naruto’s children somehow inherited his whiskers that were caused by his mother’s Kyuubi-influenced pregnancy.
  8. These two very unlikely couples were put together just for the sake of coordinating their pregnancies so the new Ino-Shika-Cho would be born in the same year.
  9. Dogs don’t often live more than 15 years. If Kiba received Akamaru before he started at the Academy, and Akamaru is still alive 10-12 years after the baby boom era that probably took place several years after the war, Akamaru would now be over 30 years old.
  10. The Hokage uses a Macbook Pro.

What really upsets me is how this epilogue is exactly the same as Harry Potter’s. The day is a big day. Short glances at what’s happened to every minor character. People who had nothing to do with each other in the main story somehow ended up together. Everyone who had kids had them in the same year. Protagonist explains something important to his son. Protagonist who now is an old man looks proud and creepy in the final shot.

It’s a terrible thing to end an epic series like it’s a soap opera, dattebayo.

i was never in the naruto fandom and i can’t stand reading the manga either, however, when naruhina was confirmed official, i was mad squealing in happiness. sadly, an ex friend (i call her “ex friend” because she pissed me off) of mine had to ruin my personal happiness by saying how hinata suck because she’s not physically strong and that naruto x hinata is rubbish and ugly, blablabla… sigh. that was horrible and sick. not to mention, stupid as well.

gaara’s hair transformation was the worse okay. i couldn’t handle it. i was like WTF HAPPENED DID HE JOINED A BOYBAND because COME ON. that’s totally kpop hair! lol

naruto’s kids are so adorable ugggghhh >w< *ignores everything sasuke sakura*

i can't not laugh at #10. yes, the hokage finally upgraded himself and used macbook pro. soon he's gonna buy an imac.
my friend and i had been laughing about naruto's ending and also how the kids are named. naruto's kids still have pretty decent names but sasuke's? omg salad. can we have sandwich next :)) i think the mangaka is too tired to think already that he made it this way… i don't know, i'm just gonna make naruto ending like a century joke or something.

I’ve never seen/read Naruto apart from a few eps, but my friend’s so happy that her ship happened (Naruto/Hinata). I like to reblog Naruto stuff that makes fun of Sasuke, so Salad is tickling me in particular. XD

Wow, it’s kind of crazy to see what the Naruto characters look like now. I followed the manga early on in the beginning and stopped shortly after it was licensed in the US. Every time I think about getting back into it, I realize how behind I am, haha. I can see how that’s a disappointing way to end a series like Naruto. I guess that’s a way to make it feel more complete by showing what everyone is up to =/

… Is it bad that I kind of wanted Sakura and Kakashi to end up together? From what little I can remember about their relationship, they trusted and respected each other. And that says a lot, considering that her first love tried to kill her multiple times. So I have to ask, “WHY SASUKE???? DIDN’T HE LIKE, IGNORE AND BELITTLE SAKURA REPEATEDLY IN THEIR TIME TOGETHER???”

But what do I know? I haven’t even followed the series for the past five years. All I can say is that d’aww, Naruto got together with Hinata and had two cute kids. ;v;
