The Failed Attempt

The Failed Attempt
 Iruka.gif Not Made by Me image by Kakashi26 Post Author:Iruka
 
As many of you know, Sasuke is bent on assignation. His target is Danzo, the newly appointed hokage of Konoha. From information and manipulation by Madara/Tobi, Sasuke learned that Danzo is the new hokage and is on his way to the Kage summit at a secret location. From manipulation, Sasuke jumped at the opportunity to take out Danzo without thinking of a battle plan. To me, this foolhardiness of Sasuke will be the beginning of the downfall of him. The attempted assassination of Danzo is doomed.

 

First off, Sasuke is being used by Madara. Sasuke did not take any time to think why Madara revealed this information out to him. Another thing that is puzzling is why did Danzo reveal the secrets of the Uchiha clan and Itachi’s past to Sasuke. We all know of Sasuke tragic past and how that created and shaped his life. Revenge became Sasuke’s obsession. To me this shows Sasuke is single minded. Once he has his mind made up on something, he can not be persuaded to change. He does not think things out. Madara knows this and manipulates Sasuke to do his bidding. A person being used is doomed to fail.
  
Sasuke also seems to be over confident in himself. After he gained the MS, Sasuke’s ego has gone through the roof. We have seen him boast how powerful he is and how cunning he his. If Sasuke is so cunning, why is he being used and not the one using Madara. Sasuke claims to just use Akatsuki for his person gain, but every time we see Madara with Sasuke, Madara is using his cunning and manipulative nature on Sasuke. We never see Sasuke actually use the Akatsuki organization or Madara. This to me shows that Sasuke is not all that cunning. With Sasuke and his big swollen head, he doomed to fail.
  
 
 The attack is also doomed just because of the location. Being as it is at a secret location, the place will be heavily guarded. The guards will be, I presume to be some of the best. A person has to be an extremely powerful to break into the place. Sasuke is indeed powerful, but Team Hawk along with himself will be grossly outnumbered. They will be bombarded will ninja every where. Sasuke does not stand a chance at all in breaking into the palace.
  
  
 At the summit will be the Five Kages from the most powerful villages. To be a Kage, that person has got to be powerful. Even is Sasuke does manage to break into and interrupt the meeting, the Kages could easily handle Sasuke with ease. To many powerful ninjas in one place. Being that Sasuke is now considered a missing nin, at the first sign of him, every Kage along with their bodyguards will go after Sasuke at once. Sasuke you are biting off more then you can chew if you can think you barge into the Kage meeting to kill Danzo. The amount of powerful and skilled ninja are to great. I would not be surprised if Sasuke does not come out of this attack alive.
  
Naruto also seems to be interested in meeting the Raikage. Being as the Raikage is at the meeting, I presume Naruto will meet him there. Naruto I believe is one of the three strongest ninja’s in the world. Naruto could handle or be a match up for Sasuke. Naruto, I believe, would protect Danzo being as he is the hokage. Also, Naruto might meet up with Sasuke before the attack on Danzo. Naruto, now that he has a new found understanding of pain and revenge might be able to relate to Sasuke better and be able to change Sasuke’s mind or at least thwart the attack. I suspect if Naruto does meet up with Sasuke, the gift that Itachi gave to Naruto, might been shown. That gift might be able to stop Sasuke. At any rate, Naruto will be at the meeting.
 
There are to many thing going against Sasuke to fulfill his goal of killing Danzo. Sasuke should just settle down and think things over. He has got to realize that his recklessness will get him killed. Sasuke may not care about his life, but he won’t succeed with his goal of killing Danzo. What do you people think? Will Sasuke succeed in killing Danzo? Please share your thoughts on this.

Friendship:Sai or Sasuke

IrukaNo16Dude-1.jpg picture by theiruka Post Author: Iruka

Friends are very important in life. We need them for support at times or for just hanging out. Some friends are better then others. Other friends are just cool to hang around with. In the Naruto world there are many characters that would be good friends or not. Lets take a look at Sasuke and Sai.

Sasuke is pretty cool to hang around with. He has that aura around him. In real life Sasuke would not be a good friend. He is selfish, arrogant and all he cares about is revenge. For Naruto, in my opinion Sasuke was a terrible friend. Sasuke was always arrogant towards Naruto. He thought that he was better then everyone. I will give Sasuke some credit. He was a good partner for Naruto. He became a rival for Naruto. Naruto wanted to show Sasuke he wasn’t weak so he worked hard to try and keep up with Sasuke. When Naruto finally started to show great improvements as a ninja, Sasuke became jealous. He no longer was the top dog any more. Sasuke also deserted his friends and colleagues to go to Orochimaru for power. What kind of friend deserts their team for their own personal goals. Sasuke even wanted and attempted to kill Naruto. As you see Sasuke was not a good friend to Naruto. Sasuke is arrogant, self centered, power hungry and is a jealous person.

Sasuke did have a troubled past. His family was murdered as well as the entire Uchiha clan. Being born as a younger son to a prodigy like Itachi didn’t help. It is hard to live in someone’s shadows. Also being an Uchiha carries a certain tole on a person. You have to live up to the clan standard and such. Many Konoha villagers had high standards for a member of the Uchiha clan. Still this is no excuse for the way Sasuke treated Naruto and team 7.

Now it is time to talk about Sai. When I first was introduced to Sai, I couldn’t stand the guy. Always running his mouth and such. His outfit to was terrible. Sai would say the wrong things to the wrong people. He seemed to care about himself and his mission to kill Sasuke. Sai even attacked Naruto. After some time with Naruto, Sai changed. The change was for the better. Sai wanted to learn about bonds. He even was willing to protect Naruto from Sasuke so he could have a bond. Sai became a friend for Naruto and fought for Naruto’s beliefs. That is what a friend is suppose to do. Still Sai at times seems awkward. He is socially retarded. Given time and help from Naruto, Sakura and the rest of the gang Sai will learn social skills. To me Sai is a good friend to have. Given time, Sai will learn to be cool.

Due to Sai’s upbringing, he became isolated. Through his training he learned to be unemotional. As a member of root, Sai was taught emotions and friendship are no good. Sai had to learn from a book how to interact with other people. This didn’t let Sai from learning what a bond/friendship is. Naruto showed him what a friend would do to help another person out. Once seeing this, Sai wanted friends. He will do anything to help Naruto out. That is a true friend.

I have shown you the readers two figures that Naruto claims to be friends with. Personally I think Sai is a better friend to Naruto. He maybe awkward to be around at times, but he would not turn his back to you. Sasuke is cooler then Sai, but he is selfish,arrogant and a whole lot of other things. You people choose who is a better friend.

Crow Power

Iruka.gif Not Made by Me image by Kakashi26 Post Author: Iruka
Quite a few chapters in the past, Naruto and Itachi had a meeting. In this meeting Itachi gave Naruto some of his powers. This gift as you can call it, entered Naruto in a crow form. These crows flew into Naruto’s mouth. If you are like me, you are interested into know what this gift was. Here are a couple theories for you, the readers as to what this power was.
After Naruto had returned back to Konoha from his visit with Itachi, Naruto had a flashback about his conversation with Itachi. In this meeting Itachi wished Naruto would not have to use his gift he left him. This leads me to a couple possible theories about what this gift is.
As all of you readers know, the Akatsuki have an agenda to capture the tailed beasts. In the Akatsuki, there is a character named Tobi. Tobi has been speculated to be Madara Uchiha. . In the past it has been suggested that the Uchiha clan have a link with the kyuubi. Madara Uchiha could make and control the Kyuubi as a pet. Just recently was it confirmed that Tobi is in fact was Madara Uchiha who possesses EMS eyes. Itachi through his infiltration of the Akatsuki knew of Madara and his power. In order to prevent Madara from controlling or gaining access to the kyuubi, Itachi set up a blockade you could say. This blockade prevents or stops the users or the sharingan eyes from communicating to the kyuubi. In previous chapters, Sasuke was able to talk to the kyuubi so there is no question Madara could do it. With this knowledge Itachi could of set up a blockade from those piercing eyes.

There is also another possible blockade or trap Itachi set up for Naruto. This goes along the same theme if Naruto was captured or near the same vicinity of Madara Uchiha. If we go back to Itachi’s battle with Sasuke, Itachi gave Sasuke the ability of MS. This MS power activated instantly when Sasuke was in contact with Madara. The amaterasu was ment to kill Madara and protect Sasuke. Itachi could of done the same thing with Naruto. Implant a powerful jutsu in Naruto that would only be activated if he ever came in contact with Madara.

SU has suggested that the gift to Naruto was something else. The gift was memories that were ment for Sasuke. When Naruto comes into contact with Sasuke, the gift to Naruto will appear and be sent to Sasuke. By that memories will appear to Sasuke and appeal to him. Sasuke will love again and cause Sasuke to understand that he must protect Konoha and what he loves. Knowledge of the MS true powers will be passed on along with its weakness. That weakness is of course that it might cause blindness and was that the MS was the cause of Itachi’s illness. Basically this theory is ment to assist Naruto and bring Sasuke back and help him find his way.

As we all know, Naruto lacks genjutsu. Itachi was a genius of genjutsu and had many at his disposal. Genjutsu requires what I believe is yin chakra. Naruto has a tremendous amount of yang chakra from the Kyuubi sealed within him. Because of this excess of yang chakra which leaks out from the Kyuubi, Naruto yin/yang chakra is not balanced out. Itachi knew this and gave Naruto yin chakra to try and balance out the yang chakra. Of course, it will never be balance out do to the vast amount of yin chakra inserted into Naruto’s system from the Kyuubi. But with the yang chakra, it will help Naruto out. With the addition of the yang chakra and some lesson’s, Naruto could cast genjutsu. Obviously, Itachi would implant instructions on how to cast genjutsus and leave him some of his own genjutsus.

Theses are some theories of what I think the gift that Itachi left for Naruto. There definitely some more out there and I know some of the theories  that I mentioned are questionable. If any of you have any theories on what this gift is, please share it with us.

Orphans

Iruka.gif Not Made by Me image by Kakashi26 Post Author: Iruka

In war there are many casualties. There are the obvious ones like the soldiers who are participating in it. Another one is the landscape the gets destroyed from the battle. People tend to forget about the innocent bystanders and the citizens of the country where the battle is taking place. Sadly though, the most forgotten of all the casualties are children. Some may perish or be injured from the ongoing war. The worst case is when children become orphans. They lost there parents and most likely any living relatives. Some children can also become orphans out of self sacrifice.

In Naruto’s case, he never knew his parents. His father, the fourth hokage, sacrificed himself in order to save Konoha from the Kyuubi. As for Naruto’s mom, little is known as to what happened after child birth. Luckily for Naruto, Jiraiya was appointed his God father. In Jiraiya’s case he was never around to raise Naruto. Only after the preliminary chunin exams, did he finally meet or take over his role as a god father, sensei and protector. The question is was Jiraiya around or take care of Naruto indirectly when Naruto was a baby.

jiraiya_vito.jpg jiraiya naruto image by fuffly005

This leads to another question. How was Naruto raised? Who took care of him as a baby? Who paid his rent at his apartment and supplied him with food and clothing? Being as Konoha is a military village, I am sure there is a orphanage to take care of children who lost there parents due to war or fulfilling their mission. The thing is Naruto might not have been allowed in the orphanage due to the secrecy surrounding him, the Kyuubi and the past. The third Hokage I am sure would of made sure Naruto was taken care of as a baby but after that is a question mark. It takes money to feed him and clothe him. There might have been a trust fund set up for Naruto from his parents or the village could have given assistance to Naruto to live on. There is also another possibility, Jiraiya as we all know, was never around Konoha. He busy doing research. He could of snuck into Konoha periodically and checked up on Naruto and left money for him in secrecy. So many unanswered questions.


As an orphan, Naruto craved for attention. That is for sure. He would pull childish pranks on everyone. You can’t really blame him either. No one would recognize him as a human. With no recognition, he acted out to get some sort of attention even it was the wrong kind of attention. Deep down Naruto wanted friends and acceptance. He did not let his misfortune in life take over him. He kept up his cheerful, upbeat attitude. Eventually he gained friendship starting with his sensei, then his team mates. Finally he had everyone as a friend.

In Naruto’s case, he did not let being an orphan to ruin his life. He took what life gave him and turned it into a positive. This orphan survived. Now lets take a look at some other orphans and look how being an orphan affected them.


Sasuke as many of you know, became an orphan from his family being slaughtered by his brother Itachi. I won’t go into detail about Itachi’s actions or motives for the assassination of his clan. What I will focus on is how this affected Sasuke. Sasuke became down draught after his family was murdered. You can’t really blame him either. Through time Sasuke became obsessed with revenge. Instead of letting go of the anger and hatred, Sasuke let it brew inside of him. The thing is Sasuke had everything. Was popular with his peers and considered a prodigy. Even though he was considered the cool guy, Sasuke stayed to himself and let it known that he was superior to other people. This holds true to especially to Naruto. Sasuke ridiculed him on countless times on how pathetic he was. Sasuke did finally recognize Naruto and became friendly with him. Sasuke did not use this friendship as a positive and still was a bitter person. Revenge was constantly on his mind. This lead him to seek power and betray his friends and leave Konoha.

As you see, from Sasuke becoming an orphan, he took another path in life. He became obsessed with revenge and hatred. This orphan may had survived but he lost so much from being obsessed with Itachi.

Lastly is the orphan Nagato. Nagato is truly a prime example of a orphan in a war zone. He has no family, and no one to protect him. He has to beg and steal for food. His only friends as a child were Yahiko and Konan. All three needed each other for support. Nagato as child lived through a great war. Death was around him. He saw the affects of it first hand. Luckily for him, Jiraiya took pity on them and trained the three friends how to protect themselves so they would not become victims of attacks. After the training was complete, Jiraiya left the three especially Nagato to fend for themselves. Something tragic must of happened to Nagato after Jiraiya left. Look at the monster he is now. He is bent on bring peace to the world by
destroying the hidden villages while capturing the bijou. That makes no sense to me. Creating war does not create peace. Nagato, from being an orphan in a war torn country, became messed up. True he motives and belief that peace is needed but his way of achieving it are wrong. Instead of using his powers to help people, Nagato uses his powers to destroy and hurt people so they know the pain he went through. His obsession with this even lead Nagato to become a pathetic looking person. He is all skin and bone and looks like a monster. Nagato maybe a survivor, but from his hardships became a monster.
110-1.jpg nagato image by vered1

In Nagato’s case, being an orphan changed him dramatically. He saw and knew the horrors of war. He wanted to bring peace to the world. This goal and the method he uses to bring peace made him become a monster. If Nagato was not an orphan in a war torn country, he might of turned out differently.

All three of the characters in Naruto are orphans. Form there circumstances in life, all 3 of them are very different. Naruto is friendly and outgoing, Sasuke is reclusive and hell bent on revenge while Nagato became and monster and tyrant trying to show people the pain he went through any means possible. Nagato also want peace in the world, but his method to bring peace makes him a madman. He wants to eliminate ninja from every where. This will ensue peace he believes because with no ninjas in the world, there is no one to fight the wars. This of course is wrong because he is in fact creating war and not peace. Naruto want peace to like Nagato but Naruto pursues his goal differently. Through friendship is his way to bring peace. Sasuke I don’t think cares if there peace in the world. He is a loner and just wants to be left alone. All three are orphans and all three of them were affected differently by it.
Enjoy. Iruka out.

Hope

As most of you already know, Konoha is in shambles from Pein and his search for Naruto. Almost every building is damaged along with the landscape .Buildings can be repaired but how about the spirit of the citizens of Konoha? The emotional state of the Konoha citizens must be damaged some. People have been killed or severely injured from the invasion. That kind of stress will cause people to feel low.
When Pein entered Konoha, he had one goal in mind; to find and capture Naruto. With no one cooperating with Pein with his questions of where is Naruto, Pein went on the rampage. Many of Naruto’s friends and sensei’s tried to fight Pein or at least hold him off. This of course was futile. All that this did was angered Pein. Pein went on the rampage and leveled Konoha. Tsunade sent for Naruto but the messenger toad was killed. Since everyone thought Naruto would return to Konoha, people became hopeful. They put their hope and future in him. Due to the destruction of the messenger toad, the message never reach Naruto about the invasion of Konoha. People became despaired. Their wishes and their hopes were crushed.

Luckily Ma Toad was around Konoha and witnessed what was going on. She summoned and informed Naruto and the rest of the Toads what was going on. But what is to late to save Konoha? I will say no it wasn’t. With Team Toad on the scene along with Naruto, Pein will be driven out of Konoha and the citizens will be saved.
What I find intriguing is how everyone put their faith and hope in Naruto including Kakashi. They all seemed to believed that Naruto will save day. Upon his return, everyone was relieved, their hopes and prayers were answered. Even in their darkest hour, people did not give up or loss their hope for Naruto to return.

There is a very important lesson here from all of this. Never loss hope. I know at times it can be very easy to loose to hope. There are many ways a person can loose hope. A person can be alone during Christmas due to a situation out of their hands. Being alone in Christmas with no one around you like your friends or family has got to be hard on a person. Something like this could cause a person to loose hope in life. It has to be depressing being alone during the holidays. A person has to remember in this kind of situation not to loose hope. They do have friends out there who care for them.

Another thing that could cause a person to loose hope is violence. Constantly being yelled at and being beaten will cause people to loose self esteem. With no self esteem, a person looses hope in life and a will to live. In a situation like this, a person must not loose hope or self worth. They must be strong and never loose hope. This kind of situation happened to a person I know. My friend started loosing hope in the world. Through some kind words and lots of support my friend is safe from the violence but more importantly, their spirit was healed. Their hope for the future is alive.

naruto-1.gif naruto image by queen_vell

Even in the darkest hour people can not loose hope. Without no hope, there is no future. Even in Kishi’s world of Naruto, the people of Konoha went in despair, but they did not loose their hope. The same thing must done in the real world. I know at times it may seem that times are tough and you are in a rut, but a person can’t loose hope. There is help out there. Whether that help comes from one powerful ninja named Naruto or a friend or anything else that matters, there is someone out there for you.
As most of you have noticed throughout the series of Naruto, there are a lot of life lessons in the manga. I hope you all learned a little bit from this lesson. With this in mind I leave you with this. Never Loose Hope.

Enjoy the funny pictures. Iruka out.
