i love them!!!
This artist portrays team 7 really well. These three are as imperfect as can be, and yet this team is incomplete without any one of them. <3 they do need each other for balance
Naruto and Sasuke already balance each other perfectly even without Sakura, they're yin and yang after all, the perfect combination, Kishi himself said that. There's no need at all of a third element. The only trio perfectly balanced is Ino-Shika-Cho.
*le sigh* Its basic knowledge that Naruto and Sassgay balance each other being yin and yang. You do know they are "Team 7" because of all three members and not two. Yes, Sakura's contribution may be limited but its still there. They both care equally about her as much as they do about each other. Their imperfections are "balanced" being together.
^ I don't really think Sasuke cares about Sakura as much as he cares about Naruto, he's on a total different level of importance for him together with Itachi. Same thing for Naruto. And about Sakura her feelings are a mistery at the moment, we'll see in the future.
The latest chapter was the further proof that Sasuke having the chance to save some of them, he chose to take with him only Naruto and Juugo basically leaving all the others to their own destiny, Sakura included. The idea to take Sakura with them as well, didn't cross his mind not even for a second. Besides the three of them totally forgot about Kakashi. Honestly Team Kakashi works much better as a whole than Team 7 where the only bonds still alive are the Naruto-Sasuke and the Naruto-Sakura ones.
^ I dont see where this is coming from. This isnt about individual bonds but about Team 7 as a whole. And im sure you're forgetting that in the recent chapters they fought TOGETHER as a TEAM, not as Sasuke-Naruto. Sasuke does care about Sakura, whatever little he does. Isnt the series about Naruto and Sasuke's bond so of course he'll pay attention to him.
Idk why you try to roll around in circles and go offtopic when the only thing i said in my first comment was about the image in questiön and what it depicts.
Anyways, im done here. Nothing comes out of this. Its perfectly normal to hate Sakura but to undermine her relationship with the two and her bond is just bad reading but oh well. *shrug*
^ The worst reunion I could have ever imagined, a mere sop to please the fandom. They looked like three random people who happened to fight together for a common goal and nothing more. The old Team 7 is dead and won't come back to life. This has nothing to do with Sakura as a single, I'm talking about Teams. Sasuke almost never interacted with Sakura since when he's on the battlefield, apart from Sakura's "Sasuke-kun, why are you here?" and Sasuke's half smirk to her super punch they didn't exchange even two words. He didn't apologize to her and didn't consider the idea to include her among the people to save not even for an instant choosing Juugo and not her. Yeah, he really cares a lot about her... And about Sakura she doesn't even trust him anymore and with all the reasons. Denying that is impossible but I'll eventually change my mind whenever Sasuke will give proof to care about her at least as a friend/comrade. Btw I said nothing about Naruto and Sakura's bond, actually it's one of the two bonds that still works in Team 7. And poor Kakashi is a forever alone xD
^ Please. You just proved you absolutely read nothing i write.
>never talked about the reunion
it was pathetic but their declaration to be together as a team and fight was real. have done that before as well. flashback to the 1st season when they did show teamwork
>he didnt apologize to her
cause idk duh its the battlefield. that reunion even had to wait for a perfect moment cause you see theres a fugly blob-monster they had to kill and now an insane maniac~ so yup. sakura wasnt in any potential harms way that even if he didnt save her she would be dead cause shes not
i said "Sasuke does care about Sakura, whatever little he does." see? should i bold this?
dear gawd am i talking about recent events. she has no reason to trust him cause his intentions are unclear. she just proved to you how she isnt blinded by his charm anymore and CAN think for herself but nope you'll still have a problem with her. how many times does anybody have to spell it out for you? look at that image. does it look like sasuke doesnt care about her? no. it shows there friendship. IN. THE. IMAGE. accept it and let go
even the title of the image is: "Cheers For Good Work"
^ In my opinion simply Kishi doesn't care about their bond so much be it as friends/comrades/potential lovers showing total disinterest in every occasion where instead he has the chance to prove otherwise. Their feelings at the moment are too poor even for a normal friendship, they're basically on the level of mere acquaintances, almost strangers.
About the picture I'm not denying or complaining about anything but I wasn't talking about it from the beginning.

Ahh~~ pls dong argue guys, both have a point. Without Sakura team 7 is not team 7 anymore. Though i agree w/ @LadyRivel thaz Sasuke & Naruto are like yin ang yang and they like cant livecwithout each other, since im a Sasunaru fan and all ^^
^ Sorry but you don't say anyone to shut up, you don't have any right to do so. You may dislike what I say and ignore my comments, that is your only right. And I'm definitely not the kind of person who shuts up and goes away because someone disagrees with me so... people dislike what I say? Too bad for them, they have to deal with it. STOP.
As long as I don't insult anyone on the personal level, I'm not disrespectful to the artist and I don't curse or use a vulgar language, I can say whatever I want.
Now, back to more serious things... @MinkiaNg99 It's not a matter of being a NaruSasu fan or not, it's a matter of facts. The only time Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura worked as a team coordinating their actions was in the beginning of the first series during the proof of the bells. In the latest chapters what did we see? Sakura who destroyed everything with her mega punch, then gets distracted and Naruto and Sasuke helping her for the umpteenth time. Then shortly after the boys start to fight together leaving her behind AGAIN as always. I'm even tired to blame everything on Sakura because I understood that it's Kishi himself to be disinterested toward her and their bond as a team. He could've made her fight with her comrades side by side in Ino-Shika-Cho style, instead he chose to let her shine for two seconds just to please the fandom and show she was still alive (and to remember to the people who forgot for obvious reason that unfortunately she's still the heroine) and not lost in the cosmic void like Tenten and then leave her behind again. Even characters who have just met (Naruto-Tobirama) or characters who never fought together (the Five Kage, Naruto-Minato) do a better team job. That's why to me Team 7 doesn't work as a team, it's not worst than the other ones but still it's not the best. I expected better from the protagonists. The only Team worth of this name is Ino-Shika-Cho and their fathers before them.

^ And there you go again. im sorry ChrisEarl, im really glad you appreciate my comments but insulting someone is not a good way to go about. i have nothing to do with what lady is as a person, i disagree with her comments and i'll speak out not against her per se but against her arguments. she might not be the ideal person i'd want to debate with but anyways:
Sakura was given her spotlight because it was a needed attention. her hatedom was piling up and even when she got a bit of a shine, no one was impressed. not even her fans were impressed. they were tired of waiting for kishi to redeem her but i guess patience wears off. We're not talking about Ino-Shika-Cho or any other team. Team 7 has always been like a dysfunctional family that has members that need each other at some point of time. That is a very silly reason to say that just cause she never got to fight on an equal level, she contributes nothing to the team but honestly? she never was in an equal level with both of them in power. how can you even compare her level with demi-gods..its just sad you do that. Sakura has and always will be an essential player in the team. she plays her part perfectly and has been from the starting. Like i said before stop trying to undermine her role to glorify SasuNaru bond. Kishi does his worship alright. Sakura has continuously proven you wrong on many occasions in the recent chapters, but instead of accepting her change you keep backtracking her past failures and shoving it forward. Of course she would need help, it only proves further that Sasuke and Naruto are on much higher level than her. A heroine is not determined by how many battles she wins, how much her power level increases, how many bad guys she can beat. There are lots of other things that define a heroine and you should stop generalizing every heroine as the model you've set up as a podium. its wrong :< thats all i have to say on this. it didnt have to escalate to this if you'd just ignored my comment (i remember you saying you would).
^ Actually she didn't prove anything, her power up was ridiculous, among all the excuses Kishi could've found to justify her inertia, he just came up with the most absurd. Three years to store chakra... seriously?xD I know many Sakura fans who found that stupid and ridiculous as well and lost all hopes for something better about her. If even her fans are disappointed, I don't really know who could have considered Kishi's idea a good development for her character.
And again, I'm not saying she's doing nothing, just that it would be good to see her shine for more than 2 seconds and then left behind, it would be REALLY appreciated. But it looks like Sakura is not among Kishi's priorities that's why he prefers to focus his attention on other characters.
The situation you're talking about is Team 7 in the past. The old Team 7 doesn't exist anymore, too many things happened and too many things changed between them. What is left of the old team are only the Naruto-Sasuke and the Naruto-Sakura bonds.
I don't have a precise idea of how a heroine should be, but she definitely shouldn't have 1/10 of the attention compared to other characters (main and secondary characters)), never left behind by her male comrades and definitely not forgotten for tons of chapters to came out all of a sudden with ridiculous power ups.
Sep 01, 2013
^ actually now that i've analysed it again, the "three years to store chakra" does seem like a plausible reason. Tsunade used her chakra jewel to beat the shiz out of Oro-pedo-maru and she used it again to heal the entire village during the pain attack. So yes being her student its obvious she'd do the same. Its another thing that kishi should've exploited the technique in the prev chapters but he kept it till now. What i found utterly ridiculous was the summoning. :/
also i havent lost hope in team 7; not even in Sasuke. Yes his intentions are unclear and he makes me want to slap him most of the time, but even i can see he still cares about Naruto. For how long and how much, that'd have to wait.
^ I still find it ridiculous like most part of the fandom does, but it's clear we have a different perspective of the matter. It's pretty obvious Sasuke cares a lot about Naruto, the whole manga says so, their bond is the main pillar of the series. Without it almost 2-3/4 of the plot was inexistent.

ShinigamiRukia i read your comment about what i said, i`m sorry, i never debate (or at least i`m trying to avoid), cause i`m bad at at telling what`s on my mind, i wanted to say about the person she`s being on the internet- what shes saying, commenting and so on
live in person - that`s something different
im keeping my character- i wont debate cause i get missunderstood
still i wish lady Rivel Keehl wouldnt leave negative comments
like i said, i just DONT debate
i`m trying to skip comments she`s writing, but i was too interessed in what you have to say about it (glad i did)
i really hope this will be the last time
i`ll keep on ignoring her
still can`t belive the fact that i got so irritated just by reading someones comments
back to my old self
^ Right, just ignore me if it makes you feel better because I'll keep writing whatever I want.
Sep 01, 2013
and yes, this was the last comment
for me now too..it`s CLOSED.
Sep 02, 2013
Bwahahaha! Man, it's been a while! To see Ruki-nee and Lady disagree like this! xD
Same as always, I see. xDD
Anyway for the picture, I love this! Simply amazing art! :)
Sep 02, 2013
oh woah what there's nice art at the top of this page but no one else seems to notice. what a shame you people think this is a debate forum.
so drop it. you are allowed to make a thread about naruto or whatever in the forum but comment area is not the place to argue over who said what and who ignores whose words.
Sep 02, 2013
Dove-sama is indeed correct. Not one mention of the artwork, not even a "I don't like blah-blah, but the artwork is still nice," in any comments. Just an overlyexcessesive debate about team 7 and forcing their opinions on everybody.
I mean, they still are fictitious characters no matter how much those of us like/hate them, and for some of the obsessive people here- it just makes them look like they're trapped in their own little worlds and would sooner force their opinions on others instead of letting go.
Indou, you shouldn't argue with stubborn, close-minded people like them, it gives you a headache and makes you look like an idiot to boot as they will never change their minds and would be better to just ignore them altogether as just noise. Arguing just adds fuel so to speak and makes it worse until someone in a higher authority has to tell you to shut up and you get in trouble too and not just them.
But, I think I've made most of my point so I'll stop at that. I'll add that I have no intention of debating with anyone here because their opinions are invalid and have no direct or indirect influence in my life and I'll not exchange words with someone with no class. . . EVER. So have a pleasant life.
And rant done- Artwork!
I think it's very pretty and I rather like it! So thank you for the upload~!

ebin comment war over here
Sep 05, 2013
I love this picture because of what it means. I am a huge team seven fan - also a fan of any shounen jump females. (Because lets be honest, most times guys can't write women.....at all. and in JUMP? only Gintama has strong female characters who are ALWAYS strong female characters. They don't get written out or ignored)
That aside. I have to agree, power wise Naruto and Sasuke are a prefect match and balanced, emotionally wise? They are imbalanced. This manga isn't just about who can beat the crap out of who better. (Sasuke's jealousy for example) But really the bonds a person has and how they endure and last....even when they shouldn't.
Those who leave their teammates behind are worse than trash....and really Sasuke was trash in my book for a very long time.
That being said, if Sakura was a 'true' female lead she'll have some tragic back story, try and demand attention from the main plot...and instead of the Sasuke-manga or Naruto-manga, it'll be Sakura-manga. Instead she supports them, pushes them, protects them from behind. Always there to give Naruto, and at one time Sasuke the 'normal' that they both want.
I love Sakura because she is -normal-. She goes through normal problems, has a normal family, and really if it wasn't for Sasuke or Naruto she'd have a normal life. It is because she is thrust in between two titans of strength that she had to rise to meet them. By.Her.Self.
She didn't stay behind like Sasuke or Naruto wanted her too. (As we saw with her statement of catching up.) But the boys will always act first in protecting her, and shoving her behind them.
Again another normal problem when it comes to the boy population. Yet she'll always be the safe motherly home the boys can come back to.
Plus does every female character NEED to be omfg super power, epic, awesome, have some tragic back story but some how pull through it?
I think not.

Oke we know it already, let's forget it and ENJOY THE PICTURE!
SAKURA - SASUKE - NARUTO = TEAM 7 FOREVER, LOVE THE PICTURE :D
Sep 07, 2013
Please calm down everyone. Sakura is an important role to the team 7, without Sakura the balance between the Team 7 are none at all. I know that Sakura is just a rabid fangirl when she's twelve but she's already growing up to be an excellent medic-nin that maybe had surpassed Tsunade like Naruto surpassed Jiraiya and Sasuke surpassed Orochimaru. Other than the other members of team 7 Sakura is the only one that had a sweet childhood and if Sakura had a bitter childhood there is no way that she's turned the way she is not.
Sakura now are compassionate, powerful, smart, responsible. Despite the short temper that Sakura had she is one of the precious person that Naruto have... so chill out Sakura is important and one of the person that made the way Naruto now.
From Angelic Yet Demonic...
no pun intended (peace out)

They should of staid like this
Sep 21, 2013
^ YEAH. I'm seconding that. WHY DID SASUKE HAVE TO LEEEEEEAVEEE??? One change and there would be a whole new story that would probably be just as dramatic and interesting as the original. The picture really brings back a lot of memories.

I totally agree with akaikun...God I can't believe I just read all those comments ಠ_ಠ
Anywho, this pic is awesome and I can't wait for this to happen, along with Sai, Yamato (is he even still alive?! -__-) and Kakashi, so we can have the ENTIRE Team 7 <3
Jan 27, 2014
I found the comments funny xD I will totally ignore the fanwar. Anyway I love this picture! Plz draw more. I love your art whoever does this! :3
May 27, 2014
I deleted all comments after ChrisEarl's ending post that were arguing or being overly rude to Lady Rivel Keehl.No need to gang up on someone people.
Aug 06, 2014
Wtf?!! ..I seriously don't know why there are so many aggressive and touchy people on this site especially when it comes to certain fandoms and I say this because being a Sakura fan myself, I don't feel insulted at all by what *lady rivel keehl* said. She has a point, actually more than one. Since the beginning of the series Sakura improved A LOT as a person and as a ninja but that's a fact she still isn't at Naruto and Sasuke's level when it comes to power and fighting skills. Sakura herself, being the smart girl she is, is aware of her limits perfectly well and never claims to be at the same level of her comrades. She knows when an enemy is out of her reach and cease the way to who's stronger than her. Also Kishi himself stated that Naruto and Sasuke balance one another perfectly, just like yin and yang. So Sakura's presence might help, but not being the key element of the team and of this war, she's not irreplaceable. Instead without Naruto or Sasuke, the war would definitely be lost. So the point is not being a Sakura fan or a Sakura hater. A fact is a fact, end of story.
ps: btw gorgeous art.
