>This really detracts from all the "Fuck destiny!" shit the story's said until now.
Yeah, that sort of thing really doesn't satisfy anyone.
I actually wondered when I saw the first episode of naruto for the first time in the past, why they didn't mention the fact that Naruto's father was the last Hokage. You think people would respect him due to his linage.
Was his linage a secret and a surprize to Naruto as well?
I'm also not really a fan of these type of story in the first place? Like, I'm not a fan of stories where these characters succeed in the end. Naruto becomes the Hokage but I think it is more intresting if he fails but finds peace in just being anyway.
I can't help but think about top chess players that train all day every day and other high-level preforming people that spend all their life doing one thing. I don't know. If you're not fighting for a cause, then what's the point? Then again, people choose how they wanna spend their time.
There is also that that some people cannot accomplish everything. Our bodies have limits and there are others that also train like crazy to become the best and there are many people in the world.
I'm not really a person who subscribe to the idea that everything should be in moderation because moderation is always vague. Who decides if you go too far in one direction or the other?
But I think that one should think about what one wants out of life and what is right and from there, make one's decision on where to go form there.
Naruto already proved that he could fight with the best of them. There seems to be no pont where he settles. I guess that's fine though but in reality, time will catch up to him and then the question is if Naruto will regret his choices or not.
