This morning and afternoon, I posted all the information for the Naruto and Sasuke awards to the Naruto and Sasuke Award community on LJ.
Please read through all the entries and rules before submitting nominations. There are six entries total. If for some reason, anyone would like me to cross post all the information on here, I can do that. But you shall have to request it!
As always, please reblog and spread the word for maximum participation!
nothing pisses me off more than people who are so engrossed in their own blatantly self-indulgent head canons that they crudely ignore actual canon and are in complete denial of the show writers and characters’ intentions and brush off any canonical thing that doesn’t suit their needs
Oh! It includes the fanbooks? Ok, now I understand. So, that means there isn’t a fourth databook, it is just a fanbook. The first fanbook came out in English, too. I’d like to thank you for answering my questions! You went so in depth and you are so helpful! SS thinks “Wasn’t able” from the quote could mean Sasuke DID feel secret romantic feelings for Sakura, but he couldn’t show those feelings to her because he was too busy with his revenge and thinking about Itachi to return her love. They think the Sasuke’s “secret feelings” theory could be plausible still. XD They also think that “thank you” meant “Thank you for your offer of love. It is really tempting, but at this point in my life, I cannot accept it because I’m too busy going after Itachi. I love you, but I have to break this bond. ” LOL desperate, right?
I thought saying “thank you” to a love confession meant ” Thank you for loving me, but no thanks because I don’t feel the same way.”
Yeah they number the volumes according to their release date so it’s easy for us to just group them together.
I should thank you actually! I was able to go into depth cos your questions prompted me to look further into it, so now it’s pretty much settled for me, until I pass third year Japanese and translate it myself perhaps.
The average parrot of SS logic rarely comes up with anything original, so you’ll easily recognize their arguments. This obviously comes from the “underneath the underneath” category, where Sasuke is too broken to know what he wants or feels about Sakura :((((
So this basically said that sasuke doesn’t love her?
In response to a love confession, “thank you” is a clear sign of gratitude, not love, and the databook seems to emphasize that despite appreciating her care, it cannot sway him romantically for whatever reasons. So yeah, being unable to love someone back is just as good as not loving them at all, as it stands for rejection of their romantic interest.
You can tell Karin and Naruto are related because of their equal thirst for the Uchiha D
Wow! I never realized how much Viz censored! Also, yes, Viz never released the databook with “The love of Sakura filled the emptiness of loneliness, but Sasuke wasn’t able to reciprocate it. The only word he can find to tell her goodbye is “Thank you.” in it. The weird…
Huh? There is a fourth databook?! When did it release? I never even heard of it. The databook on the top of that stack is the only one that was released in English. Are those all yours? Lol at your description of Viz! Panini Comics sounds pretty reliable and successful from what you are saying.
They are all considered volumes of the “Official Guide,” but some get called “databooks,” while others “fanbooks” in Japanese. Like this:
Volume 1: Rin no Sho - “Book of the Challenges” (databook)
Volume 2: Hyō no Sho - “Book of the Ninja” (fanbook)
Volume 3: Tō no Sho- “Book of the Battles” (databook)
Volume 4: Sha no Sho - “Book of the Warriors” (databook)
Volume ?: Kai no Sho - not released yet (fanbook)
So Panini numbers and generically refers to them as databooks. Hope that clears it up for you.
