"Naruto and Sasuke progress as a pair. So when I write about Naruto, I always have to think about Sasuke." -Masashi Kishimoto
No one affects Naruto the way that Sasuke does. No one is paired with Naruto in Kishimoto’s mind the way that Sasuke is. Even when they’re separated, they’re still together, heart and soul, because their development depends on each other. There can be no Naruto without Sasuke, and vice-versa. That’s love.
Q. Naruto-kun sees you as a rival but what about you?
A. Naruto eh … ? At first I thought he was just a moron who gets in the way but frankly he’s been impressing me lately, just a little bit.Q. What did the kiss with Naruto taste like? Lemon?
A. Hmmm … Like Miso I guess …I mean… like I remember! Damn Naruto, why would he do that?!
