Sasuke has his mind set. Since I'm not going to be*spoiling anything I won't be going into great detail. It's true Naruto has a great bond(Not a lover bond...I personally hate Yaoi) with Sasuke and he wishes to keep it. They were best friends and Sasuke was like a brother to Naruto(Naruto even said Iruka was like his father. Yet you hardly see him anymore). It's a common story that's been used before. Kingdom Hearts was similar. But besides that, Naruto still wants to keep that promise*he made to Sakura.
But if they decide to have the character killed off then fine by me. Sasuke is in a big pile waste. Not much hope for his redemption.
they were not best friends naruto looked up to him like a brother
actualy he can't stop because naruto has had only one bond in his whole life and it was with sasuke and he doesn't want that bond to be broken which it pretty much has :P but he can't exept that cause he is a weirdo :3
Has any one played the game Naruto: The broken bond at the end of the game you play as fox naruto vs curse mark sasuke. But it does seem kinda gay that naruto is like that but it's not naruto is not gay it would not be good if sasuke died to he's super powerful.
First, itachikiller10 and midori gave the only sensible answers I come remotely close to agreeing with.* No offense, though.* XD
**** Naruto stills wants to get Sasuke back because one: as has been said before, Sasuke is like a brother to Naruto, and second:* a lot of people seem to have forgotten this; Naruto PROMISED Sakura to bring back Sasuke, and his nindo is "I NEVER go back on my word."* He gave his words to Sakura that he would bring Sasuke back.*
Now I agree that the anime HAS been centering around Sasuke alot lately, but that is probably because he was the center of the last pre-shippuden (and non filler of course) story arc.
*** Now, I'm almost done with this, but I want to say two things:* First, in the manga, Sasuke should have died COUNTLESS times already, but he didn't so that kind of makes me mad.* Anyway, second, STOP calling Naruto GAY!* That's really annoying... -.-*He does not want to bring back Sasuke cuz he loves him, just because of the promise I talked About before.* So, I'm done ranting....
Promise of the Lifetime or not. Just recently Sakura has asked Naruto to break that promise... however that's getting into spoilers, I won't continue about that.
Mentioned above someone did mention Kingdom Hearts, yes one can say that it's kinda like that, but let's all be honest with ourselves, Sasuke is too far gone into the darkness. Nothing can really be done about it, because the way I see it, Sasuke is the dark side, Sakura is the light side and Naruto is caught in between. Yes he's the hero and his actions are for the better, but Kyuubi is still an issue, and the fox can easily pull him over the fence.
However, am I answering why Naruto is still up in arms about Sasuke to a point that he even yelled at Sakura about it? No, why? Because Sasuke is still like family to him, both have similar experiences, and he wants to show Sasuke that the Darkness isn't the only answer.
Now will Naruto still think the same when he finds out that Sasuke is targeting Konoha? Will he finally join Sakura's side against Sasuke or is it going to become a three way epic battle at the end?
Don't you guys get it? It would be out of character for Naruto to give up on Sasuke. And it would be out on genra for Sasuke to be totally unredemable unless he does something aboslutely horrible which he hasn't. His only target in Kohana are Danzo and the two olders who pretty much DESERVE what they have coming to them.
Neji said it himself, Naruto has better eyes then him. If anyone can see a path to save Saskue it'll be him and he'll do it becuse that's just the way he rolls.
