I’m seeing some SasuSaku fans break down over this chapter, and I’m wondering to myself that if they think this is the end of the world, where were they during Kage Summit?
Sasuke might be showing cray tendencies again, but he is not as bad as he was 200 chapters ago. And ASS and NarSak fans jumping the gun this week, proclaiming that SasuSaku is dead. Tell me again what this chapter had to do with pairings?
The truth is is that as a pairing, SS will go through some drama because one side of it is made up of an anti-hero/antagonist. This is true for all Sasuke pairings (yet why do I see only SS taking the brunt of it from haters?).
Despite this Kishimoto has showed us that Sasuke still cares about Sakura and the others even though his goals cause conflict with his bonds. Very recently we just got a huge SS moment in chapter 685 showing us just that. So please stop panicking over nothing. The outcome of this fight is obvious, and so is our pairing.
