Is Miyazaki = Studio Ghibli? I mean, is he the one who's in charge? Because honestly, I've heard TONS of good stuff about SG. :O
Also, no One Piece this week. Probably not in the next week either. Oda's apparently sick. ;___; Get well soon, man. Our well wishes are with you! I was hoping for some entertainment from naruto this week and that I got, I guess. I couldn't take the chapter seriously and sasuke's "I wanna b da hokagayy!!!" just craps on past few hundred chapters of him being built up as an antagonist but I'm not gonna lie, the whole thing was entertaining.
Studio Ghibli does have a lot of good non-Miyazaki movies. I'm not sure if he's in charge, exactly, but he does head many of the projects. But then there's Takahata, who made Pom Poko and Grave of the Fireflies, and Kondo, rest his soul, who made Whisper of the Heart, which is definitely one of my personal favorite and most inspirational Ghibli movies.
On the subject of Naruto, given that change (which I didn't know about until just now), did his personality change as well? Sasuke's, I mean.
Hm...that seems like him. I think it seems more fitting, and even more likable, in a...warped sort of sense. I might give the wiki a read then take a look at the new chapters, because God knows my library won't be up to date.
I honestly have no idea about them movies, Macho. But I'll try all of them out once I have the time. People don't praise them for nothing, after all..
And yeah, pretty much what SA said. :p But honestly, it was weird to see him say that. He took a 180 degree pretty much as soon as he listened to the first talk about the history of uchihas & senjus and village and whatnot. I mean, okay, Kishi wanted to take this route, fine. I'm not against it. The whole thing felt rushed, though. Sasuke should've taken some time to ponder over it. Maybe just help out them fellow ninjas in the war and then declare what he did. But as soon as he entered the war? That felt a little sudden and out of place. Not to mention, made his development as dat evil psycho-sasuke totally pointless in my eyes. But meh. Naruto's ending pretty soon. What's better than to see these Naruto and Sasuke fight it out for the title before the series finally draws to an end? I wanna see them fight, that's all. :p
If Sasuke is in charge he'll be able to control the philosophy of the village whereas if he decided to fight he'd probably die and nothing would change. So he's still metaphorically out to destroy Konoha and depending on your definition, a villain.
If my presumption is correct there probably will be a final showdown between Naruto and Sasuke. Ever since that whole "if we fight again we'll both die" part I've presumed it would be averted but I don't know anymore.
Hm...well, I think Sasuke would make for a good leader. He knows how to delegate, he's cunning, and he has the most emotional connection to the people than pretty much anyone. Having said that, I'm not sure if he has the compassion for that type of thing, not anymore.
Them both being Hokage could be the final result actually.
Naruto will realise what Sasuke is doing so they'll fight (just like the Madara/1st fight in the flashback) but just as the final Rasengan - Chidori clash is about to hit (the one that would kill them both) Sakura jumps in to stop it, dying in the process (remember their first fight). This sparks the realisation that all this fighting is silly and they should all be friends.
Also, I read chapter 631 (since I get emails from a Groupbox that has scanlations, this email appeared just moments ago). He's like initial Sasuke except he talks more. That's a good thing, because he had almost no time before he went into "I-NEED-MORE-POWAH" mode where he stopped giving a crap about...pretty much anything.
