Best Naruto Quotes: 5 Trivias You Might Like to Know
What is the best quote?
From the anime and manga series? Honestly, it's hard to pick from these Naruto quotes. All of them are the best and intend to inspire anime fans in dealing with a failure or in getting stronger.
They aim to give life lessons that are worth remembering in life or help you avoid failure.
The best quotes are those that sear your heart and change you for the better. When this happens, you use those quotes as a reason for your existence, sometimes.
There are quotes that make you question your own belief, especially if you had it wrong from the start.
What does Sasuke always say?
Usuratonkachi is a word that literally means "thin hammer". Figuratively, the Japanese word means "loser". Sasuke does say this word to Naruto (mostly) in an unfriendly manner.
However, this phrase could also mean Sasuke recognizes Naruto as a strong opponent (if not in the earlier episodes, perhaps in the later ones). He doesn't want to lose to him, especially that Naruto seems like a weakling.
Who is Naruto's true love?
This one is a complicated question. So, let me start from the beginning. During the first season of the Naruto series, it is clear that the main protagonist has a crush on Sakura. The pink-haired ninja has a special place in Naruto's heart.
But, why did Naruto never pursued Sakura and just give up on her upon learning that his crush has eyes on Sasuke?
First, his feelings for Sakura aren't that strong enough (maybe). Second, Naruto has a bigger priority: to become the strongest Hokage.
By the time the nine-tail legend is ready, it was Hinata who was always there for him, albeit a spectator in the distance. I know many anime fans hate Hinata because of her "weak" personality. I guess it's just the way she is.
For a relationship to prosper, it needs a balance between a strong person and a weak one. So, there you go! Hinata is Naruto's true love. Not because he married her. it's because their personalities complement one another.
Did Naruto die in Boruto?
In Boruto manga series, Naruto (with nine tails didn't die just yet. It says that the Hokage's futile effort to kill Isshiki would end in a failure.
Instead of death, Isshiki sealed Naruto away from the world while letting the Hokage see what's happening to the lives of his loved-ones.
Many speculate that sooner or later, Naruto, the seventh Hokage will die to give way for Boruto. Like his strong father, the boy needs some life lessons to learn the ninja way of growing strong amidst trials.
Who is Masashi Kishimoto?
Masashi Kishimoto is the man behind Naruto series. He created the manga (later the anime) with Dragon Ball, the Matrix movie, Blade of the Immortal as his inspirations.
This talented individual has a twin brother, who is also a manga artist. Due to their same interests, their drawings and stories are often similar. Some say they're just copying one another.
Naruto is definitely one of the most loved series in the anime world. It has lots of moments to remember. And I hope these Naruto quotes inspire you to become greater in life.
