The truth is, I wanted to speak out to you right away but I couldn’t… You were able to do anything. On top of that, everyone always praised you. Because you and I were too different, I felt so jealous. I decided all on my own that you were my rival. I didn’t want to lose. I was called a loser, which made me feel that way even more. Even after we became Team 7, I always felt the same. I was obstinate… I stubbornly continued to lie, but what I really wanted was to be like you. I always aspired to be like you. You were the person I admired.”

That you were just a weakling playing around. But after seeing you do stupid things and get scolded every time… for some reason I started to keep my eyes on you. That time I also realized… that your weakness had started to sink into me too. I couldn’t stop paying attention to you. When I saw you doing everything you could to create bonds with others… it reminded me of my family. For some reason… I felt relieved. However… I also thought it was a weakness. I trained hard to escape from that weakness… and to become stronger than my brother, to take revenge on him. But then you ended up in the same team as me… and I got reminded of my family again. After clearing missions with you, who wanted to become Hokage… I could feel clearly that we were both getting stronger… and I realized that I wanted to fight with you. I started… to see Team 7 somewhat like a family… and that’s why when I saw you suffer… I would… feel pain too. When I understood your pain, for the first time I considered you my comrade. But at the same time… I couldn’t just let you become stronger. When I saw how strong you had become, I… it’s the opposite… I was the one envious of you. You had a kind of strength I was missing. You always walked in front of me… much like my brother used to… and today too.”
Sasuke about Naruto – chapter 699 :
- “Naruto…I now remember those words you once said to me. That when you’re with me, you finally understand what it’s like to have a brother…and when I think of it that way…that feeling…I finally get it now. I’ve been travelling around the world and…I seem to recall those memories a lot. We were alone and starved of love. Kids that lived in a world full of hate. And from that point on, we went our separate ways…and fought. But time has passed and now I’m thinking…could it be that…just like how the hope and pain from my father, mother and my brother, Itachi flowed into me…I’d understand your pain and hopes too, Naruto? You never abandoned me, no matter what. And you never gave up on me, coming closer when I pulled away. It wouldn’t have surprised me if you hated me, but you didn’t…you kept insisting that we were friends. And even that, I nearly destroyed.You fought to stop me…to the point you lost an arm. All because you were my friend. You saved me. The us that fought and quarreled over the smallest things…are now able to share the pain in each other’s hearts. On my journey around the world, I noticed…that all these feelings of mine aren’t just about us, I’m sure it’s the same for everything else. But…there aren’t a lot of people like you. And things won’t always go as planned, look at us. It’s especially true when it comes to bigger things. I think it’s the same as praying. And until I can do it, I’ll stay strong. The beings that have been entrusted with hopes…that’s us. That’s what makes us ninjas.”

Among the Fans
SasuNaru is one of the most democratic pairings in the fandom adenine well as one of the most well-known, rivaled only by KakaIru in terms of their respective fandom sizes. It is supported due to the relationship between both Naruto and Sasuke and their known competition throughout the series, american samoa well as Naruto being seen as one of Sasuke ‘s most important bonds, along with Itachi. Their rival couples are N aruHina, and SasuSaku and it ‘s a company to SakuHina .
- It was announced in the cover of chapter 671, that the bond Naruto and Sasuke share is heaven and hell as well as yin and yang. Their placement in Naruto Shippuden Opening 3 and Naruto Shippuden Ending 21 might also refer to it (Naruto as Yang and Sasuke as Yin). In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are concepts used to describe how apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent giving rise to each other as they interrelate. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, and male and female) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality of yin and yang. This duality lies at the origins of many branches of classical Chinese science and philosophy, as well as being a primary guideline of traditional Chinese medicine, and a central principle of different forms of Chinese martial arts and exercise.
- Yin is the negative/passive/female principle in nature, and may allude to many other concepts such as the moon, shaded orientation, something covert or concealed, “of the netherworld”, overcast or sinister.
- Yang is the positive/active/male principle in nature, and may allude to many other concepts such as the sun, open, overt, and “belonging to this world”.
- According to an interview with Kishimoto, Kishimoto states after being asked why Naruto and Sasuke kissed and if it added a special dimension to their rivalry “I didn’t have any particular reason for it, other than to surprise the readers. I mainly did it because I don’t think there has ever been a manga where two rivals have kissed. Also, by having this encounter, it was easier to set up the love triangle: Sakura, who had intended to be the first one to kiss Sasuke, has it stolen by her rival Naruto. Sasuke and Naruto are rivals, so there’s added tension there. And so on and so fourth.”
