In the world of anime, there are few ships as prolific at the one between Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno. Masashi Kishimoto brought the couple together despite the odds by the time Naruto ended, but there were lots of fans who wanted Sakura to tell her childhood crush bye-bye.
Now, one fan has helped Sakura do just that, and the artwork she created to make her point is low-key savage.
Over on Twitter, artist Alexis Moore shared a piece of fan-art she did of Naruto that mixes revenge with classical art. The piece, which can be seen below, inserts Sasuke and Sakura into “Judith Beheading Holofernes” by Caravaggio. The Uchiha finds himself being murdered by his former teammate, and Ino can be seen observing the scene from the side.
As you might expect, the fan-art is creating all sorts of buzz online. Whether you love or hate Sasuke, fans cannot deny the Uchiha was a rather big brat growing up. The ninja only got worse once he went rogue and joined Orochimaru with the hopes of killing his older brother. Sasuke went so far as to attack his former teammates with lethal force when they encounter each other after his desertion.

And, well – this piece of fan-art lets Sakura show just how she felt about Sasuke and his betrayal.
If you are a fan of the piece, then you can buy a print of it from Moore online. The artist has the piece available for purchase on Etsy here. You can buy a 17×11” print for just $15, and the artist’s store has other anime-friendly artwork available for purchase as well.
Do you wish Sakura had been able to give Sasuke a taste of his own medicine before Naruto ended?
Naruto Creator Reveals Who Was Gonna Be The 4th Hokage!
The position of Hokage requires the skill, intelligence, ability of jutsu, speed, as well as other qualifications that are needed in a leader to help control and guide the village to a brighter future. As for the position of the Fourth Hokage, we all know there were two main candidates for this determined by the Third Hokage. Those two were Orochimaru and Minato Namikaze.
And although we know who became the fourth Hokage, there is a certain conversation and decision made not by Kishimoto for why Naruto’s father became the Hokage. Today we are going to be discussing the original concept for the Fourth Hokage that wasn’t Minato or Orochimaru! To begin with, all of this information is legit and sourced from an original interview with Kishimoto by Kobayashi.
In this interview, Kishimoto explained that he always wanted to incorporate Minato in Naruto’s life but he didn’t know when he would do it. The original idea he pitched to his editors at Shueisha believe it or not was for the Fourth Hokage to be a DOG. Yes, you read that right. Masashi Kishimoto wanted the Fourth Hokage to be a dog ninja.
When Shueisha heard of Masashi Kishimoto’s intention to make the Fourth Hokage a dog, they quickly shut it down and demanded that they make Naruto’s father as the Fourth Hokage.
So believe it or not, Shueisha’s editors or Kishimoto’s editors are the ones responsible for the creation of Naruto’s dad (Minato) and the Fourth Hokage being the same person. The Orochimaru segment was added later on to give Orochimaru more intent on taking revenge for not being trusted by his Sensei, the Third Hokage.
Your Favorite Character Is Returning In Boruto!
Boruto anime is slowly getting closer to the Manga now, and the days in Academy are close to being over. The anime has focused a lot on the Academy days, and while some liked it, others didn’t. There is really a mixed reaction about Boruto among the fans, but I liked it. I think it is good that they focused on the Academy so much, because if they didn’t, we wouldn’t have got to know about the next generation characters, and more importantly, the anime and manga would’ve been too close to each other, leading to poor episodes.
As of now, the anime is transitioning into the Graduation exams arc. The Graduation is set to begin soon, and is likely going to last for about a month r two. After the graduation exam is done with, the anime is going to adapt the manga, and we’ll finally get to see the Momoshiki arc, and some epic fights as well. I’m really excited for all that, but right now, were focusing on the graduation exams. The next episode of Boruto is about a Parent-teacher meet, where an old character is set to return.
Here’s what the synopsis for the next Boruto Episode says:
‘Before the graduation exam, a Parent-Teacher meeting is held to review every Student’s future path. Even though he had excellent grades in “Ninjutsu”, Boruto was worried since he was troublesome in class, and wasn’t on the right track to becoming a proper ninja. By chance, Boruto meets Sukea – A free journalist, before the graduation exam. Feeling that his future as a Ninja is at risk, Sukea gives him some advice.’
You may be wondering who the returning character is. It’s Sukea. For those of you who don’t remember, Sukea is the freelance journalist who was actually Kakashi in disguise. We saw him in a Naruto episode, and that’s when his actual face was revealed. Sukea is set to return in the next episode of Boruto, so prepare for some Kakashi action! I know the next episode is not going to be a serious one, but seeing Kakashi once again is definitely going to hype fans up!
