I wanted to thank for all the lovely comments on TERRACE and for all the support! :heart:

Unfortunately, summer break isn't a summer break for me at all, since I'm on university :(
Next year I'll have to finish a graduand animated film of 10 minutes length....It's quite much for one person to deal with... and even though a year may sound like a ton of time, I can assure you that this is really not the case in animation.

I am trying to work on the movie bit by bit every day and I kind of lack energy when I come home.

There's also another long-running fan-comic I'm doing over at :iconraintalker: and several other things that I can deal with only now...so please, bear with me a bit more, all you people who are so eager to read Terrace... I'll be sure to upload the whole comic with my own pace, because I can't promise any regular update.

I tried to make this a regular one, with one update per week...but I guess I lack organization skills and energy on that for now :( Shame on me but I can't promise anything more than this.

Thank you for the patience, all new watchers welcome and I wish you a really great summer guys!


Take care!

That smile Sakura gave Sai....that hit hard :(

There's one thing Kishimoto is a true master of - it's drawing these emotional expressions. You can read them so nicely, you can feel the emotion of those. He can draw various smiles and each will have a different meaning behind it. It's really something special.



SPOILEEEERS



.... I can almost hear the moans of sasusaku fans :( ouch.... (and the sasukarin fans rejoyced because yes, Karin is so hardcore she can handle even sasuke's bitterness and turn it into something special)

 But you know - I admired Sakura for being intelligent and strong. She's not the type of character who would go forever into fangirl mode because of a man who had hurt her more  and more and over and over again...just because she liked him in the past.

 I hope Kishimoto shows the female readers that they need to distance them selves from these kind of hurtful relationships with men who don't deserve their love. Sakura is the main heroine of the manga - she is basically the main rolemodel for the females *EDIT* Saying she has more screentime than her girl peers so she has a bigger chance to be a rolemodel - not that every girl has to take her for one ;) *....and I wish she'd show them that they can like someone but they need to break free from curses like such relationships.

This is not shoujo manga where they teach girls that someone who is mean to you and hurts you has feelings for you.*EDIT* I'm not saying that shoujo generally is like that - I'm saying that it's something to be seen in shoujo... sorry*
TRUTH IS -  hurting people on purpose as some kind of twisted form of love is WRONG. A bad boy will remain bad.... in 99 percent cases, the woman's feelings won't change her man's bad attitude.... and they end up hurt even more.

 I'm glad the story prooved once more that Sakura changed A LOT and that she won't be manipulated through her faded feelings and status as Sasuke-fangirl.
You can clearly see she still likes Sasuke...but her priority right now seems to be protecting the good people, fighting for what is right and probably....as we may see in the upcomming chapters - choosing ONE side. Either Naruto's or Sasuke's. I am almost certain now that whatever Sasuke would try to do to Naruto, she wouldn't just stand by and would protect Naruto.

From all the girls in the Narutoverse she is the one facing the most pain - being bullied as a child, having unrequited love, being left heartbroken and hurt, facing Sasuke's change for the worse and seeing Naruto being torn apart because of her and Sasuke, facing Naruto's feelings toward her which she didn't want to accept yet couldn't help but respect them.... facing Naruto's demons when he was in the kyuubi-mode.... facing Naruto's tragic past in the RTN movie, even trying to sacrifice her comfort for his smile ..... and now in the end - facing that Team 7 will probably never be like it used to be oficcially... I think her tears in the previous chapter were a sign that she already knew about the foolishness of her and Naruto's dream for a team 7 reunion. :(
(if I would compare this to Hinata's tough childhood, it seems that her own pains have already been conquered and erased and were left back in her past self. Sakura, though, is facing these pains for several years now....).


And Kakashi...oh God. T____T PLZ DON'T KISHIMOTO. (Or what...I don't even know what I want....Kakashi dying together with Obito is somehow....atoning? for them both? But the thought is really....ngh....not good).
HELP.

SPOILEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS








NARUSAKU FTW! Like...girl didn't even...DENY it. Minato, you can see right through Kishimoto's plotting.
And Saskay must be tired.... poor baby. Thinking about being kage, you just go and take a nap, baby. It'll be okay.

Seriously, I was just laughing.... I don't care about the plot's seriousness anymore....it's all been ruined before....but who cares..... I think the amount of awkwardness is overweighted by my sheer happiness that Team 7 is standing together again and that Sakura didn't deny you know what...and that Minato pointed you know what out...and that...Sakura is TRULY a GREAT character and had shown that she's not a crybaby, not a stupid girl who's going for a guy for his looks and cool aura and didn't jump into Saskay's arms after being called by name from him..... And that she's standing firmly behind Naruto.
Actually...the whole thing ending with Sakura becomming the hokage....Man....THAT WOULD BE PRETTY EPIC?

8'D

Ahhhhh, the narusaku is officially back! It's not my wishful thinking. It's not us fans being biased nor narrow-minded..... we just saw what was truly there. :heart:

EDIT:
To Hinata's strange expressions....hmmm..you know...re-reading it all, I kinda'feel bad for her :/ She heard Naruto talking about Sakura being practically his girlfriend..OUCH. But it just confirmed what we already believed, that Naruto doesn't claim things just like that and if he claims to love the pink girl, then he means it.
But just saw Hinata making that expression again, when Saskay arrived and Sakura eeked out his name.... I do believe that she might be the one to ask Sakura about her own feelings and choose between the two men. Hinata's expression kinda made me shudder....she seemed ...so neutral that it's almost scary. And she was the only one who didn't say a word.... Who knows what happens next.

I never thought there would be time when a filler would be more emotional than some of the actual canon episodes
:(
And with Terrace running and being quite close to that filler plot in one way or another..... I am absolutely sure, Neji loved Hinata - or at least, the anime staff is trying their best to make us believe it.

It seriously made me cry.





SUMMARY DOWN HERE IF YOU DARE.
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER





Basically, it was about Hinata undergoing special senbon training with Neji, because her father doesn't give a damn about her and is on a trip with Hanabi. (yeah, so they really want to make her the heir at that time - it was around the time when Sasuke was still in the village). Neji's being a real ass to her like ussual (while being all happy inside that he's helping her I'm sure of it). He exhausts her so much that she goes blind temporaly, not being able to watch some firework show that was supposed to take place in honor of Tsunade becoming Hokage.
Both Sakura and Neji are being really bitchy and mean. Sakura wanting to pair Hinata with Naruto, so she could be alone with Sasuke. But as Hinata goes blind, Neji is being approached by Naruto and Sakura, who are worried about her state. Neji brushes them off with his ussual I- couldn't- care- less -attitude (but deep inside again, he's being worried).
He and Hinata are alone in the mansion and he secretly follows her every step to make sure, she won't bump into a cat, or break a cup, or trip over.... Hinata is not aware of his presence and his secret act of kindness.
Her eyes aren't okay and she won't be able to heal until the firework-yay-day....So Neji sets off to find a cure for her into some misty valley filled with eyeless brutal ninjas. Naruto and Sakura join him, because they've been eavesdropping on him and understood that he's just a tsundere and actually has a soft spot for Hinata. They want to help him. They help him. Naruto is all over Sakura btw. Sakura is totally pissed.
In the end they almost die there.... but are saved by Guy and Kakashi, who were on patroll.
The most gruesome thing is the subtle (or not so subtle?) hint, that the valley is filled with branch-Hyuga / ninjas who lost their eyesight and evolved into wild human who don't even need eyes? (did I get this right?). There is probably no cure down there in the walley..... or is impossible to get from there.

During the last minutes we get to see all kinds of pairing love, adorable Lee and Tenten on the roof, Team 7 love, Asuma Kurenai love.....Shika Ino love....
And a blindfolded Hinata sitting on their terrace, listening to the fireworks, with Neji hiding in a shadown behind her back, who's watching over her * internal scream of pain*
He's smiling. *must be masochist...while acting sadistically*

:iconcryforeverplz:

And we get to see the current badass Hyuuga duo, back to back, in the fight - Hinata thanking Neji for protecting her and encouraging him. Sayin she will protect him as he did.
They have this epic moment.
And the end.

And I'm crying.

Just by the way. If that fiery bird is a Phoenix, maybe Neji will rise from the ashes again, right? Only good thing to say about it.

Sorry naruhina...I just....I really...don't like you, okay? I'm sorry.
But yeah, let them naruhina be and have their blissfull feelings.
I'm at peace.

So apparently, the next filler 306 will be about Neji and Hinata.
Because they need to deepen their bond and make viewers sob so that they can butcher Neji in the most painful way possible later.

On the other hand. Kishimoto-sensei, you need fillers to deepen the bonds of characters. That's no good D:

And on a third note> I AM SO HAPPY. It hurts so bad, but I am so happy that the anime staff actually wants us to believe,what the nejihina fandom has seen a decade ago.
Maybe the episode will be just a dissapointing filler...but they have 100 points for TRYING.

Thank you for everything, I'm sorry for being silent lately - I'm having loads of things on my shoulders, mostly school-related things that are deadlined, so there's no time to draw now.
Just wanted to thank you for all the lovely comments, notes and general support :)
And new watchers - WELCOME! :heart:

Terrace will be updated soon, I haven't given up on it!!! (but I have to admit that all the nejihina in SD series and anime recently are almost suffocating me .... I came to the conclusion that the staff is a bunch of sadists who like suffering heartbroken fans and want to rub more nejihina into our faces till the time comes when Neji dies in the anime, too.... :iconotlplz: And it's not Neji being all brotherly toward Hinata, trust me... at least in the SD universe, that is. Even if it's a parody, it's still nejihina, people see it and feel it and it makes us suffer.... )

And if you havent heard about an anime called CHIHAYAFURU - I must say, ONE OF THE BEST RECENT JOSEI SHOWS OUT THERE, CHECK IT OUT! It has action on par with shonen sporty series, yet, still keeps a nice amount of romance without being too cheesy.
Karuta seems like a beautiful traditional game, so I learned a few new things about Japan once again! :heart:

Take good care guys!!
Have a nice start into spring and see you soon, hopefully!

Just thought I might share the love for NaruSaku/NejiHina/LeeTen with a few wonderful AMVs I've found :)
So if you have a few minutes to spare and love these couples, make your self comfy and take some popcorn and enjoy!

NARUSAKU
This one sums pretty much up why NaruSaku is so wonderful, dynamic, awesome, full of energy and wit and love.
All the colorful emotions and experience that connects them - from sad to happy things have made this couple one of my most favourite fictional couples in a story!

NEJIHINA
Most AMVs about these two have this really sad, melancholic taste to it. I adore it much although I'd appreciate if someone tried to make an actually happy one :'D Was hard to pick from all those wonderful AMVs.
These make me want to hug a pillow and cry, yet, are so mature and beautiful.

LEETEN
Unfortunately, there aren't many good LeeTen AMVs out there TAT even though there's plenty of material (guess the NejiTen waltzed this over XD Haha). But these two are very cute:

Not gonna' review every chapter, ho-ho, seriously...no :'D
But dear God, all the kages there again..... I-it's gettin kinda intense XD And...a bit...cramped? There's so much extreme things happening that it's hard to swallow each week. I have absolutely no idea where this is going, seriously.
I miss Sakura and with each chapter I'm growing more and more nervous as to what Kishimoto prepared for her D: I hope she will finally get the chance to prove that she cares about Naruto and can kick ass!
And...is it just me or ...is Orochimaru being kind of "soft"? I remember when he appeared for the first time and sent shiver down my spine :'D He was the ultimate villain and now he seems kind of content with everything. He calmed down to the point where he feels almost out of character, haha (still not oddly-adorable like in the SD series XD)

And remember when Lee promised Sakura to protect her at the cost of his own life?
With Neji gone.... I hope....nothing will happen to Lee. Lee or Sakura getting hurt at this point...I don't know if I could handle that... Oh dear.

first of all...THE CRUDE CRUDE DRAWINGS,OH BOY!!! >__<; It seems Kishimoto had a rough time with his assistants, because the drawings really....sucked...compared to the previous chapters. Heck, even the eyes were all shifted :'D
For those who don't know - at times like these, the drawings are re-made for the tankobon-printing (tankobons are full volumes, paperbacked with color specials or some special info and drawings - basically, what you buy on the shelves when the volume is printed out. I am absolutely sure this chapter will have a remake, because, ouch.... Sasuke's and Naruto's eyes....:'D man).




So guys..... *inhale*exhale*
WHERE THE EF IS SAKURA!?
:'D
Okay, I shouldn't panick,right? It's just that ever since Neji didn't appear in the XY chapter and I was all "where's Neji"and then he got....killed.... This makes me twirl on my chair.
The fact she had such a nice color-cover tribute means she'll play an important role in the next chapters - hopefully, she'll finally be able to stand by Naruto's side and fight properly alongside him, like everyone else. It's what she wished for - literally-in the 60th volume. "We will be together.... no matter what you say". I think that time she may have reffered to her confession. She truly meant it, I believe and she's already prepared in the ring's corner with her boxing gloves on to fight for her place as the main heroine. Kishimoto just needs to ring the bell and I'm sure she'll be amazing as ever.
I really love her character and she's kickass, after all the screentime the other kunnoichi got, she needs to shine.
Hinata once again was useful - repaired Naruto's broken shoulder. Well...made me scream for Sakura. Sakura-chan!!!C'MON! You're a medic!

The chapter moved me to tears again, although...oogosh the cheese :'DD It's really cheesy, but I can't complain - I like cheesy things to an extent. After all the heartbreaking events, Neji's spirit in the form of a bigass chakra bird filled with ninjas who cuts the stupid juubi was kind of just the slap I needed. (made me laugh, since I didn't notice at first).
AND LEE BABY, YOU ARE AMAZING AND I LOVE YOU!!!GO!!!GO AND SHOW THEM!!!!
Seriously, one couldn't stay cold to Lee's sincere brotherly love toward his rival. The flashback and the dialogue was THE thing that almost made me cry again (almost).
And Neji's abandoned body on the battlefield.... He was so tiny....... I felt....really bad.
I thought I am finally kind of over his death, but noooooo, Kishimoto-sensei's flashback-attack stabbed my poor fangirl heart once again X'D

I'm not sure anymore, whether or not Neji will be revived (I'm prepared for the worst but I'm still expecting the best).... but I never expected for him to play such a big role. He's basically the spirit of the united shinobi now...that's...really SOMETHING,ne?
Hiashi's constant remorses make me feel weird in my stomach - is he going to sacrifice him self? Is Neji going to be revived thanks to him? Even Tobito noted on the Hyuuga clan - this still isn't a closed up issue.

I'm eagerly waiting for the next chapter!!!
I remember how Naruto's popularity dropped on mangafox's page from nr1 to...idk...10? Or even less.... But now, it got boosted up to nr 2 again! Well done, Kishie! You make us think about Naruto and the plotline again!

EDITING THE JOURNAL AFTER SEEING CHAPTER 615....




SPOILERS FOR 615 AHEAD!!!










Today's Hinata's birthday (DEc 27).
She had finally grown to be confident, her wish to be by NAruto's side and hold his hand is officially fullfilled in the most obvious way possible. I won't deny that aas much as I don't like naruhina, I feel happy for Hinata. She really deserved to be finally noticed by NAruto and be rewarded for her lifelon effort to do something for him and be useful to the person she loves.
I'm glad it happened...

And for the fellow narusaku fans - as much as the naruhina shippers go into celebration, I don't think this is it for the narusaku fandom. Actually....this chapter I view as a dot after the naruhina. Kishimoto has fullfilled Hinata's wish (which she deserved), he had shown that girls in love who won't give up can win the attention of their loved ones. Hinata will now fight side by side with NAruto - and at the same time, she accepted NEji's wish and learned so much from it, even using it as fuel to wake up Naruto from his depression. But I think this is all there will be to naruhina - because, let's face it, NAruto isn't ficle. He's EVERYTHING BUT FICKLE. He's love for Sakura is real and I don't think he'd just sudenly love Hinata just because she slapped him once. I think this was more like accepting her as a shinobi and comrade who is by his side. HE finally noticed how much Neji and Hinata had done for him and he won't give up now.
But from this point on, I think .... narusaku has an even better chance now. Not that it matters at this moment, though. Because....it looks like things are about to get real now :D :dance: The war is at its climax. NO TIME FOR SHIPPING WARS GUYS, Just sail your ships till the end and be kind to each other!!! I accept this as a very strong naruhina moment, no doubt. But I still think it's more one sided love but respect on both sides now.


I just thought about Neji's death and realized, that if narusaku were to happen instead of naruhina, Kishimoto wouldn't have any other choice, than to revive Neji!!

Reason?
HINATA'S POPULARITY. She's one of those characters who really deserve a happy end - the truly happy end for her would be in some fan's eyes that she wins Naruto's heart. In my opinion, the best ending for her would be to realize her strengths and becoming a proper Hyuuga, while finally taking her role seriously and accepting the love f the people around her. But this is not the point - the point is, if NAruto and Sakura would end up together, with Neji gone she'd be left completely lonely.

The story would let her suffer under all thesde things at the same time:

1- let her  lose a precious person and basically the only male in the series who actually seemed to openly care for her in a special way, and basically the only male who besides her father shared a deeper history with her
2- being heartbroken, most probably..or simply, suffering unrequited feelings (and her goals would crumble, since winning NAruto seemed like her only true goal ever since the start of Shippuuden)
3-having to live under the burden of Neji's death in the Hyuuga estate (which she'd blame onto her self for sure), with Hanabi as the next in lineage (according to her father's words)

All these things would probably happen, if Neji wouldn't be revived and narusaku became canon.

For me, NaruSaku is already becomming canon from most part (only Sakura needs a lil' push to realize it completely).

Which leads to the conclusion, that Neji truly has to be revived to save Hinata once more from suffering under the burdens of the three mentioned probabilities.
(go Neji, SAVE HER!)
Thus, I will crave for narusaku even mor now, since it is possible that it could save Neji's life :'D (not that I wouldn't ship it before, I ship it like wild of course :giggle: )

I think this does make sense.... I have no idea, how NAruto will continue from chapter 614 onwards... so this is basically just a thought. But a thought worth the share :D
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Watching: Naruto SD
...Chapter 614.

In.

My.

Face.

Right in my face.

In my gut.

Why.

Just.....

why....

Although....I had this strange feeling ever since Neji didn't appear. And today - even while walking the dog, I thought about what happens in the next chapter.... And actually, death of a Hyuuga member DID cross it. But somehow I thought that maybe Hiashi will save his daughter and die. But hell, no. It had to be the "genius" of Konoha - I should've known better. Or rather, I tried to ignore this bad gut feeling and believed that noone from Konoha 11 will die - that they'll make it. Damn. This is really really bad.
I'm out of energy....

I don't even feel like crying, seriously..... I just feel kinda' empty...haha.

God.

But this may sound as total drama, don't worry guys, it's not like I'll be ripping my clothes apart and cry into the pillow (well, maybe cry into the pillow later.... :'D) But....I somehow can't believe this.Really. I can't.

GOD, AND I DREW THAT PICTURE YESTERDAY.

Sorry for this horrible trash of a journal entry X'DD I just... I don't even know what.

I AM UTTERLY CONFUUUUUSED!
;///; Enraged even...? Or too strong of a word there?

I hope Kishimoto keeps "Naruto" being the story HE wants to make - not being like a chess  piece to all the powerful editors. I mean... I love Hinata way too much, but .... I don't think she has ever matched Naruto in the way Sakura did and he never seemed to be interested in Hinata AT ALL....
although, let's face it - Hinata has a BACKGROUND, while Sakura is left kinda' ..... pale, in comparision to her, even though she's the main heroine. Kishimoto said that Hinata would've made a better main heroine by now...but heck, Kishie, YOU CAN'T JUST JUMP LIKE THIS! Why is Hinata standing so close to NAruto there? <8'D Why does he want to impress her all so suddenly??(like Kiba said).

img20.imageshack.us/img20/2671…

Please, please.....don't...mess with the plot, Kishie-sensei. Don't.....mess up the shippers.... please. :iconotlplz:

:'D

I sense the NaruSaku vs NaruHina flame buuuurn soooo strooong now.



And where the heck is Neji?? Where is he, I can't friggin'see him in that bigass (and pretty cool) ninja-crowd. Even Tenten's there X'DD Neji, are you neglecting your duties again? Or are you sulking a kilometer away  because NAruto's the main thing? (I would laugh hard if this were the actual case....)

Which is...another thing that made me almost eat paper tissues - I really like strong main characters, that shine and rise from ashes and give it their best. But not till the point where the other ones start to look all useless.
I sense that Kishimoto-sensei's trying to portray how important support the side-characters are to NAruto and how he wouldn't be able to rise up if it weren't for his family, friends, his "nakama"....

But seeing him rescue everything everytime everywhere in a second..... without giving others the chance to be useful....that's kinda'.... frustrating.
I wouldn't have minded if Hinata were to be saved by Kiba, SHino....or in best case friggin' Neji (dude, you need to PROTECT HER!!).

I know that the poor thing's been deceived and the war started without him noticing... But what was so endearing on the story in the first 28 volumes - the side characters backgrounds being explained WITHOUT the connection to the MAIN CAST.

WITHOUT the connection to Naruto.

This made them STAND OUT, it gave them PERSONALITY, their own goals and life, their own pains and struggles.... and it made them appear so colorful and interesting. Various people found them selves empathize with various characters.
But after another 30 volumes I have the feeling that everyone's way too focused on either Naruto or Sasuke.... and the whole thing is loosing the taste of colorfulness. The only exception probably is the Team 10 -thing. The InoShikaCho. They have their beautiful little world with Asuma and Kurenai in it, their "formation" that actually has a history. They have their own side-story that is still being evolved and explained. While all the others seem to be stagnating a lot or being neglected.

What about Shino? Kiba? Sai and team Gai? What about the Hyuuga?


But back to the main point - Naruhina vs Narusaku>

Sorry for this ridiculous journal, but I'd be very very dissapointed (even to the point of flipping a table) if Kishimoto turned the story and the relations of the characters into some ridiculous way just because Hinata is getting more popularity than Sakura.
Not mean to bash NaruHina or insult the NaruHina shippers, no way. I'm just stating an opinion - and in that opinion, Sakura needs to end up with Naruto......forget about Sasuke.....and stop acting ridiculously awkward (like in the fake confession chapter).

Anyone with me on this chapter? ;__;
Because I'm seriosuly scared that NAruSaku might be in danger XD (not that it would matter in real life, though XD well...maybe......a lil bit.....XDD )

The first few pages are uploaded, feel free to read :)

A few notes on the comic:

- READ FROM LEFT TO RIGHT! Like a normal western comic, since I'm working on many other projects which are read in western style, I didn't want to confuse my brain more so I let this one western too.

- supports NejiHina, NaruSaku, LeeTen - feel free to read, even if you don't like the ships, maybe you'll find something precious there.

- comments: are allowed, feel free to state opinions, but please, don't jerkbend.... I like the NejixHinata pairing, because it's very heartwrenching. The whole story about the Hyuuga clan deserves attention and Hinata has been one of the characters that changed me a lot. Neji's attitude toward her had been something I've encountered many times in my life in extremity and the way he changed and has become so much more gentle and protective of her is something I wish every girl who had been bullied by boys and felt worthless would experience. It's inspiring and refreshing. And don't even make me started about how in Japan cousin marriages are common and all this crap.... It's fiction, feel the esence of it, please....

- medium: if anyone is interested, I'm pre-sketching with pencil and lining with a 0.5 and 0.3 black liner. Scanned and edited in PS. That's all. I know it's not much and you can't compare the quality with TUQ, but this is all I can do in the little spare time I have. Hope the cleanness of the art will be likable.

- I can't upload regularly but I hope it's gonna be worth the wait, here and there.

- forgive grammar mistakes, I'm not native of any English-speaking land or country.

- THIS IS FICTION OF FICTION

- I beg you, don't steal it. If you want to try and color some pages, if you want to make an AMV or translate....I BEG YOU GUYS, SEND ME A NOTE!!!!!!!!!! :iconotlplz: It's not such hard work to ask about permission. But it's hard work to produce the comic, so please, respect me as the author and ASK. Also - you won't ever get any better of you don't work hard your self. Stealing and tracing things will only make you feel bad.

- TUMBLR> click-through links are okay with me.

-ENJOY! :heart:
