I just was thinking about this again.
I don’t know if I can express in words how this scene makes me feel..
I think that sums up their relationship.
Naruto has been able to save all the people who were lost, showing his feelings. Naruto saved Zabuza, Tsunade, Neji, Gaara, Chiyo, Nagato, Obito.
But, he never was able to reach Sasuke.. even now that he has shown his feelings for him, Sasuke doesn’t yield.
In fact, because of those feelings Sasuke wants to kill him.
I find it fascinating, amazing, I feel a chill when I think that.
This is the most difficult challenge for Naruto,
someone who loves him, wants to kill him.
And imagine Sasuke.. he wants to kill Naruto, because Naruto loves him, because he’s the last bond he retains, such a strong bond that has never been broken.
And he needs to break this bond to remove the little light left in him.
how Naruto, how are you going to reach him?
