Anime Movie Review: NARUTO: THE LAST | and the BEST! (le fangirl reaction)



Disclaimer: This post was originally posted in my first ever BLOG. Migrated it here to keep it organize. This was posted last March 2015.

I am a big fan of NARUTO. 

Naruto is a part of my childhood (together with all the 90’s anime aired for free in the Philippine national television) up until now. I was in sixth grade, if my memory is serving me right, when I got hooked with it. It was a bad-ass, smart show for me. Naruto may not be the perfect hero, he is sometimes dumb, short-tempered and a failure but that means his character is very significant to me. I am not perfect and I failed a lot of times. The story of Naruto is just too awe-inspiring for me that’s why when it ended, my feels when the last Harry Potter book and the last installment of the movie was released came back. Another fandom ended which means another part of my childhood ended too. It saddened me a lot *a moment of silence for me* but life goes on. 

----SPOILER ALERT---



Movie Synopsis: 

The moon is approaching dangerously close to Earth!


Unless something is done, the moon will disintegrate, showering the earth with gigantic meteorites. 
As the clock ticks towards the end of the world, can Naruto save the earth from this crisis?
 
The final chapter of Naruto's story unfolds!




The story started with a flashback of Hinata and Naruto.

So, all I can say is, HINATA this movie is yours! You shined liked the moon that almost destroyed in the movie. lol! She is so pretty in the movie. Character-wised, I still like Sakura but hell, spotlight is on Hinata and after all these years, you deserved the best. And of course, Naruto’s realization on his feelings towards Hinata *squeals at the top of my lungs*




FAVORITE SCENES (According to appearance)


·         NARUTO-SENPAI, NOTICE ME!

-          Surely, Naruto gained a lot of admirers from the female population after the great ninja war. It was funny how girls flocked over him when at first he was treated like some sort of a monster.
·         THE I-WILL-GIVE-THIS-SCARF-TO-NARUTO-NO-MATTER-WHAT OR MAYBE-TOMORROW  

-          After finishing the scarf she made for Naruto, our shy Hinata is in a state of confusion on giving it at the very moment or maybe later. It was my favorite scene because it was like the scene from Disney’s Tangled when Rapunzel was confused if she should go back to her tower or follow Flynn.
·         THE INSENSITIVE NARUTO-KUN!

-          Sakura: Why don’t you walk her (referring to Hinata) home?
Naruto: Walk Hinata home. Why?
Sakura: You can’t let a young girl walk home alone at night.
Naruto: Huh. Hinata’s really strong. No one in the village would dare mess with her.

                          Packsheet, you Naruto!

·         HINATA’S CONFESSION REHEARSAL

-          Kokuhako is a very thrilling scene but surely Hinata looks like a fool rehearsing alone and then Naruto came and her stomach growled.
·         THE GENJUTSU THAT SHUTS THEM AWAY IN A WORLD OF MEMORIES. PRISON OF CAGE MEMORIES. SAKURA RESISTANT TO GENJUTSU

-          In this scene where Naruto, Hinata, Sakura, Shikamaru and Sai were trapped in a genjustsu where they were shown some memories. It actually focuses on Hinata and Naruto’s memory.  Naruto realizes his feelings for Hinata.
·         THE DATE-LIKE AROUND THE ABANDONED SHINOBI VILLAGE

-          Naruto and Hinata wandered around like a date on an abandoned shinobi village. It was, aheem, romantic and seriously, they were teamed up to looked for Hanabi (Hinata’s little sister). Full of NARUHINA feels. *Come on, NaruHina fans, come and happy dance with me* 

The fun and ~kilig part is when Naruto stumbled a few steps (He is a ninja but can actually fell) and hurt himself, Hinata lends her ointment to Naruto (the same ointment she gave to our hero during the chuunin exams, remember that?) but Naruto, can’t actually reached some part of his back and Hinata had to apply it for him  (Heller, why didn’t he use a bunshin to help him, huh? LOL. Vianna, you are a romance writer! *slaps self*)

·         NARUTO’S CONFESSION BUT WAS GOODBYE-ZONED!

-  Yes, our dumb Naruto confessed first! But the bad guy came and Hinata willingly went with Toneri, the villain and was goodbye-zoned! Yes, heartbroken Naruto! You will see a side of Naruto so dejected! Hahaha. Saya!

·         STOP THE WEDDING! NARUTO OBJECT!
-  Not gonna say something about this because I spoiling you too much… hahaha!
·        
       KURAMA VS THE MOON BEAST XX NARUTO VS TONERI VS TONERI ON THE MOONS SURFACE

- yeah, fight scenes are still the best when you watch a shounen type of anime! And way to go Kurama! Fight! Fight! Kyaah. Such smooth fight scenes animation.

·         KURAMA’S CALLIGRAPHY

-          Kurama can actually write! Hahaha. He was given that task in order for the shinobi’s on earth can see that the mission to save Hanabi and the earth was accomplished properly! And I should never forget my favorite sensie which is the current Hokage in this movie, KAKASHI-sensei! He is awesome ever since!

·         THE KISS

- Aheem, rejoice NaruHina fans because there is a kissing scene here!

·         NARUTO AND HINATA’S HAPPY FAMILY

-          I was crying on the ending credits and cried more after it because the best part was shown—the happy family of NaruHina. First screen appearance of Bolt and Himawari! I was really touched by the idea that the characters you have been watching ever since you were a kid (I was actually around 11 or 12 years old) are now grown up and has a families of their own ( and I’m like here, loves food, anime and manga). I grew up with them and my emotional attachment to the series is unexplainable. LOL. I’m happy yet a part of me is sad! (I need a hug!) and the family picture! Kawaii and sugoii!

FAVORITE LINES from the movie: 

Shikamaru’s BANAT (How do you even translate Banat in English)

1. 
Shikamaru: Did something happen between you and Hinata?
Naruto: No. Not really.
Shikamaru: You keep groaning her name. Hinata. Hinata. As well as some other embarrassing things. But I got to listen in on your mushy side.               

2. 
Is it hard to see the woman who dumped you? So, Naruto’s strong as a Shinobi but he can’t handle a broken heart. – Shikamaru

3.
Sai to Shikamaru: Are you going to depend on Sakura to heal not only his body but his heart as well? 
Shikamaru: Can you do it?
Sai: You have a point. 

4. 
ever thought you’d confess your love first. Remember long ago, when you said you loved me? But wasn’t that because I love Sasuke-kun? You didn’t want to lose to him. It’s real this time, isn’t it? Hinata is a great person. She’s almost too good for you.  - Sakura


5, 
When a girl truly falls in love, her feelings don’t change that easily. They cant change. I understand how she feels very well. – Sakura


6. 
Hinata, this big idiot finally understands. The meaning of the scarf you gave me when you went to Toneri. I know now, from the scarf you painstakingly knitted and took so long to finish that your love can’t be unraveled so easily. Wait for me. You loved someone like me forever and ever. Now, as a man, there’s something I’ve got to say. – Naruto

7. 
My hunches usually end on a high noteKakashi




There’s a lot actually but that would be too much spoiling spree, right?
I rate this movie a 9.5 out of 10~! Bias Vi because I am a NaruHina.

It has THE BEST ENDING CREDITS EVER! *exaggerating at this moment because it is just so epic* It showed the modern Japanese wedding of Naruto and Hinata under the sakura trees. It was just so beautiful, so surreal though it was just basically black, white and pink with selected awesome photos. The song is perfect!

I WILL DEFINITELY WATCH IT AGAIN ON CINEMAS! I WILL BUY A COPY!

-----------------------------------------------------------------
I'm sorry, this is really not one of my best review as my fangirl self took over me when I was writing this. Anyway, I'm just so happy my ship sailed and that I'm still seeing the couple up to now because of Boruto: Naruto The Next Generation
