Geeky Things//Naruto

Hey guys! 

*Picture and summary not mine 

Naruto has gained a huge following throughout the years. Now that's it's over, it feels like a part of me has died. Here's a summary of it if you've been out of the loop these few years. 

"Naruto (ナルト?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto. It tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, an adolescent ninja who constantly searches for recognition and dreams to become the Hokage, the ninja in his village who is acknowledged as the leader and the strongest of all. The series is based on a one-shot manga by Kishimoto that was published in the August 1997 issue of Akamaru Jump." (from Wikipedia)

I fell I love with Naruto when I was in fourth grade. Toonami played the first episode and I was hooked. Ninjas? Chakra? Cute anime guys? Sign me up! 

I always had a soft spot for Sakura. She was one of the only characters without a special background, tried to prove herself through knowledge, and had teenage girl tendencies that were realistic. She was an extreme fangirl, but she grew out of it. (But I can't say the same for me.) When no one took the time to get that side out of her during the academy and Kakashi ignored her in favor of the boys, I was even more in love with her. Because I know how it feels to be ignored, how it feels to not be good enough, and how it feels like no one cares about you. 

That's why I love Sakura the most out of everyone. She had to help herself. No one wanted to help her because she was considered a "fangirl". How was that fair to her? No one taught her to that your worth is based only on what you think you deserve. No one else's opinions matters, but yourself when it comes to your worth. She taught me to never give up even when everyone else has abandoned you. 

Naruto is really close to my heart, and even though it's officially over, it will always have a part of my heart. 

That's it for today! Thanks for reading!
