    Oh ok, forgot the suck it stuff is not from DX. You should keep your students in line. It looks like they  might be stuck as Genin forever the way they talk to their master.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Naruto's feelings for Sakura have fizzled since the start of series, and I also wouldn't be surprised if Naruto is never paired up with anyone.


    Yes, true, but if you follow the anime right now, it is apparent that he still likes her. Honestly, I think it's also proven in how he still calls her "Sakura-chan". Which is an affectionate term the way he uses it. I think the main conflict will be with his feelings for her and his "promise of a lifetime" to bring back Sasuke. Before he turned completely evil, and said that Orochimaru could take over his body as long as he can kill Itachi.

    Now back to the discussion, I wonder what Sakura and Sai are doing now. It has been a while since they made a real appearance (Sakura's cameo appearance in a recent chapter doesn't count). Sakura must be training with Granny Tsuande.  Her want to be useful to Naruto will bring her far.

    Honorific titles (-kun, -chan, -sensei, -sempai) are considered polite in Japan. It wouldn't be uncommon for Naruto or anybody else to call Sakura "Sakura-chan". I agree that the dub should've maintained the Japanese suffixes (and call it "ramen" NOT "noodles") because it tells the audience a lot about the characters. For example, Sasuke never refers to Kakashi as Kakashi-sensei or Naruto and Sakura as "Naruto-kun" and "Sakura-chan", respectively, because he has little regard for common courtesy.

    I've never seen a dubbed anime that leaves in Japanese suffixes. Also they still call it Ramen in the dub.

    It is only in the UK they call it noodles. Actually almost Sakura and Naruto still call Kakashi Kakashi-sensei in the dub since he is the teacher, and they still keep lord (lord=sama). The only think they don't keep is kun, chan, ect.

    Yes, it might not be uncommon to use that suffix, but in Naruto, it is only Naruto only who consistently, always, calls her Sakura-chan. You never see Sasuke giving out any titles. He's apparently too good for that. One of my friends is convinced that Sasuke is gay Since he ignores EVERY single girl that fawns over him. And could be like...say...Orochimaru?:-) Just food for thought.

    Um, I just said that Sasuke thing...scroll up. And yeah, since Naruto developed some perverted traits while traveling with Jiraiya, it's possible that Sasuke plays for the other team now (and I don't mean Otogakure...).

    god only knows. honestly. I think we should pin this thread. It is quite useful. and proves the Naru/Saku point relatively well.

    There aren't really any legit couples yet, except for Asuma and Kurenia.

    Wow. And here I thought I was the Pairing Rant Master. I humbly except defeat. -_- *Bows* I have a huge Word File with all my Pairing Rants. I might have to Save yours for future reference. XD

    Nicely done. I agree with basically everything said. Now we just hope it can convince at least a few Naru/Hina Sasu/Saku Centrics.
