3 Reasons Why Sasusaku Is Still One Of The Best OTPs From 'Naruto'

Can't wait to see if there are more Sasusaku moments in the "Boruto" series or any incoming things about Sasusaku!


From the beginning of the popular ninja anime, "Naruto," I have always supported this couple, Sasusaku which is the name combined of these two characters from the anime: Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno. After all these years, I have decided to remember one of the thrilling animes that I have enjoyed watching, which is Naruto. Not only did I realized that I still adore the anime of "Naruto," but I also still adore the OTP, Sasusaku. Here are three reasons why.

1. Their teamwork is amazing

Sasuke and Sakura display some awesome teamwork despite the fact, Naruto is in the same team as them. Sasuke and Sakura share the same intelligence and common sense when going through missions. For instance, Sasuke and Sakura have teamed up against the enemy named Fubuki in the first "Naruto" film, "Naruto: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow." They successfully follow each other's orders and did what they need to do in order to defeat Fubuki. They also show great communication with each other and rely greatly on each other due to the fact Naruto likes to do things impulsively.

2. They come to each other's rescue

Sasuke always had the instinct to protect Sakura, which is evident through their missions in the first part of "Naruto." He always defends her. When fighting against Gaara, Sasuke even tells Naruto at one point to make sure that Naruto needs to protect Sakura because he does not want to see anyone precious get hurt right in front of him again. He also catches an unconscious Sakura and lay her down gently. At the same time, Sakura also comes to Sasuke's aid. For example, Sakura catches when Sasuke loses against Rock Lee, Sakura defends an injured Sasuke when fighting Gaara, Sakura catches a falling Sasuke when a bridge breaks, and Sakura is seen having Sasuke on her lap after he gets injured by the main villain in the "Naruto: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow." Most significantly, Sasuke has surprisingly come to catch a tired Sakura during "Naruto: Shippuden" which shows a tension between them after he has left her and Naruto.

3. A crush turned into true love

Sakura has a crush on the cool, and popular boy, Sasuke from the start of the anime. At first glance, one may see that it's just a normal girl crush on a boy, but actually her crush on Sasuke becomes true love for Sakura. For instance, Sakura has become stronger due to her love for Sasuke. She is able to have the courage to learn under one of the most powerful legendary Sannin, Tsunade. Therefore, Sakura gains strength like skills and healing. Another way to see if this love is that it brings the main protagonist, Naruto Uzumaki, who is in the same team with Sasuke and Sakura, to be close friends with Sakura, especially after Sasuke abandons them and joins with the evil legendary Sannin, Orochimaru to gain more power for revenge against his older brother, Itachi. Naruto, who used to have a crush on Sakura, really sees that Sakura's love for Sasuke is indeed deep and genuine.

For Sasuke, his mind is always clouded with revenge. Therefore, Sasuke does not seem to be interested in having a romantic relationship with anyone, especially Sakura. However, there are many instances that he does care about Sakura. There's even a time, Sasuke subtly encourages Sakura. Most importantly, Sakura confesses her love to stop Sasuke from leaving but Sasuke then replies to her, "Thank you for everything", stuns her, and left her. However, as the turn of events occur in the anime of "Naruto Shippuden," Sakura is the first person that Sasuke acknowledges when facing his former teammates. Later, Sasuke teams up with Naruto and Sakura to defeat the remaining villains after some conflicts have been settled. During this time, Sasuke smirks in acknowledging Sakura's strength. Towards the end, Sasuke sincerely apologizes to Sakura after he finally admits that he lost to Naruto in their final battle. In return, Sakura cries tears of relief and forgiveness while Naruto and Kakashi look on with happiness that the Sasuke that they know has finally come back to them.

After, Sasuke who still does not forgive himself, decides to go on a journey to redeem himself. Although Sakura has asked him to take her along with him, Sasuke tells her that "she has nothing to do with his sins" which makes Sakura sad that she can't go with him. Suddenly, Sasuke gives a forehead gesture to Sakura and says "maybe next time" and thanks her again. This ultimately shows that Sasuke reciprocated her feelings because this gesture is used between Sasuke and his older brother, Itachi to show their display of love and affection for each other. Now, Sasuke has passed this gesture of love to Sakura. This also shows that Sakura has finally captured Sasuke's heart after her long years of hard work in pursuing Sasuke and loving him still after all these years.

At the end of the whole "Naruto" series, Sasuke and Sakura are married and have a daughter named Sarada Uchiha.

Now, there is currently a "Boruto" anime series, which is about Boruto Uzumaki, the son of Hinata Hyuga and Naruto Uzumaki. Boruto becomes part of the same team with Sarada and their adventures start from there.

Can't wait to see if there are more Sasusaku moments in the "Boruto" series or any incoming things about Sasusaku!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
