Naruto Fan Rants
Okay...for one I'm really happy that a community like this exists. I just hope I don't get as much backlash I get everywhere else I go. So onward to my rant!!|
Okay, before you read, just keep in mind that I'm a major Tenten fan. Hence the topic of my rant, Tenten.
I honestly don't understand why that poor girl gets attacked so much by Naruto fans. I mean...I know not everyone is like that...I only find that a lot of Hinata supporters or NejiHina or NejiAnyone seem to do a lot of Tenten bashing. And I honestly hate it. My God, what the hell did she do to deserve such harsh words? Like I can understand if people don't care for her (I mean she is a minor character after all), but stuff like "OMG Tenten is a fucking bitch" and "Tenten deserves to be alone" and "Tenten is the most retarded character ever" really get me down...and especially angry.
In no shape and form is she retarded. The only thing wrong with her is that she doesn't get a back story and a last name. But hot damn, I mean so what? I think that makes her a more interesting character. And by no means is she retarded according to any databooks or even in the series. She does her best with what she's got. She may not be able to do rasengan or chidori and she might not be able to punch holes through people but her determination and arsenal of weapons should be respected just as other characters who have determination and their own special attacks get respect.
I hate how everyone just judges her souly on her one fight with Temari. She lost, big whoop. That doesn't make her any less of a fighter. During that time, had she been paired to fight with anyone else she would have handed them all their ass. Geez, everyone just happens to forget that Temari is older, and she has more experience. Geez, I mean even Post Time Skip she has a freakin Jounin position. Tenten gave it her all though. She didn't back down (no one backed down from their fight), but jsut because you only see her slung over Temari's fan doesn't make her a pathetic fighter. I mean did everyone see all the weapons scattered around? Tenten went all out whether people like to realize it or not. ANd I just feel sorry that people don't recognize that about her.
I also hate how people automatically assume that Tenten is Neji's fangirl/cheerleader. I'm sorry, but that's a big WTF from me. She, in no scene in the manga or the anime, has ever squealed or shouted things that would constitute her to be called a fangirl. If anything she only admires Neji's strength, just like she admires Tsunade's strength.
And what the hell is this all about Tenten not recognizing Lee? That's not true. In the manga, during the Forest of Death scene when she jumps down to retrieve Lee she even says herself "If Lee was by himself he would have beat those three." Does that sound like she doesn't recognize Lee at all? No...geez...she looked down at him when Lee was battling Neji because Lee was being annoying with his constant challenging of Neji. He'd challenge him blindly and lose. If anything Tenten was trying to get it through his head that he needs to do better then what he was doing to beat Neji. And words like that kept pushing Lee to do better.
*head/desk repeatedly* But yes, no one will probably care about this rant since she is only a minor character. Which is understandable. But I'd rather post it here then on places like narutofan where everyone has a biased opinion about everything and can't except characters for what they are. It's like a big slap in the face to people like Kishimoto who spend so much time developing characters and interactions between these characters and then have people complaining and saying how worthless someone is is stupid in my opinion.
BTW SASUNARU = CANON LOLZ
XD, thanks for the comment about icons.
The thing is though, that she has done something. It's just not as big as others, but hell the show is called Naruto not any other character.
Don't worry about couplings, personally I'd rather no one get paired off in the end. If anything, Kishimoto should just keep hints and that's it. Nothing should be established in the end cause it will just cause a never ending war T-T
It's okay if you don't like Tenten (and my intention wasn't to bring NejiTen into this rant or anything). I just dislike when people just completely write her off as a terrible ninja, when Kishimoto (who is terrible at female development) hasn't even written anywhere in the manga that she is terrible. She's just Tenten. A ninja who has a dream and likes to see the people she cares for succeed. I mean, I don't think she did anything to even deserve any hate in the first place.
She's made enough appearances in the manga and anime to satisfy me. And the facts given in the databook is what helped shaped my views of her. I don't like making stuff up for her. It's not my style. I go with what I got. Kishimoto likes Tenten, I don't see why people should go hating on her, that's all.
Yeah, I don't mind that attitude at all. I mean to each their own. I just hate the bashing with no good reason. Like I'll see people talking bad about her because she gets in the way of their ship, and I'm just like....uhh...please go die now kthnxbai.
And the fact that she's realistic is what attracted me to her character just like I was attracted to characters like Tayuya, Jariah, Sakura (I mean she's a bit like tenten in the way that she doesn't get a background story...she's just there to support Sasuke and Naruto),etc who really don't get a background at all but are still good without all the information. Besides she also got to use a bomb and some other fancy weapons, and since I like when characters use weapons I just found that kickass 8D. <333
And hahaha love the icon.
I don't think Neji or Tenten or even Hinata will get any romance, I'd be more worried about Team 7 pairings - because fans just gonna go KABOOM!!! If Sakura will end up with Sasuke, or Naruto with Sakura, or either of them with somenewcharacterKishimotojustpulledoutofhisass.....
So, yeah, that will be doom, you know it!
Yeah, I'm not really thinking there will be romance there even though I do support a coupling around them. You are right though, I'm more concerned about how Team 7 is gonna end up...especially after meeting up with Sasuke again. That's gonna cause a whole mess of trouble.
Sadly, there was someone that was spazzing out that they would die if NejiTen became canon in the series and that majorly pissed me off because even if I like the pairing I like other pairings like LeeTen. This person was simply spazzing because they hated Tenten. It was idiotic.
Oh, and I had a question for you :o You sent me this fanart once and I was wondering where you got it.
That's really a shame. I mean people should be content with the fandoms they support. It shouldn't make you hate a series just because of one couple. I mean if they mutually like eachother there shouldn't even be a cause of concern. Geez >_
I don't have to shut up. I am simply saying that is a petty reason for someone to threaten to leave a fandom because of a pairing.
And considering it was a total and utter joke, I'd say it's a petty reason to remove someone from your friends list.
And then bring it up later.
At least she had the kindness to publicly announce your flist-removal to the world.
With mine, she was just all "Oh, I removed you? Oh well. *signs off*"

I have nothing against Tenten, and I don't dislike anyone here nor do I have anything against peoples love for couples. But it wasn't cannon since.. you know it's a filler ark.
:( Fillers = not the manga.
