Ugh, I know, right? I mean, I can kinda see the point of killing off Itachi for the plot.....but, not so much with Pein and I definitely don't see the point in killing off Deidara....yeah, they need to have a balance of good guys and bad guys....it just doesn't work when you kill off all the most awesome bad guys and then keep the mediocre good guys -__-;
Kishimoto lost like half of his viewers after he killed Deidara, Pein, and Itachi. Good luck with seeing her again, they've been killing off all the bad guys and then "reviving" all of the good guys. Yep, it's strange. It just doesn't work when ALL of the good guys live. Well except Asuma, he died.
Oh gosh, I know! I got ticked when they killed off Deidara, then REALLY ticked when they killed off Itachi....I mean, why?! Why the two coolest members? Dx
I kept going though, really loosing interest after they killed off Pein :P I kind of only check back with the manga now just in the faint hope that I'll see Konan again somehow xD It IS really weird now though, I'll agree with you there :/
Aww, thanks xD
Yeah, Naruto is dragging on a little long for me....I only really read the manga now every once in a while and am still not totally caught up.....kinda got bored after they killed off all the good Akatsuki xDDD
