Naruto Chapter 615 Live Action by behindinfinity Naruto Chapter 615 Live Action by behindinfinity
Edit: Added the first frame that I didn't get to include before

SPOILER WARNING! GET OUT IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CHAPTER 615

(Also applies if you only watch the anime!)

Previous photos in this series:



Best viewed if you've read the manga until Chapter 615! This might be confusing if you're not familiar with the context.

To give a little background (if you don't mind spoilers):

Neji sacrificed his life to shield Naruto and Hinata from the Ten-Tailed Beast's rain of wooden spikes. Masashi Kishimoto makes this very painful by using the headline: "The battlefield... becomes Neji's grave" WHY JUST WHY

As Naruto mourns the loss of his friend, Obito takes the opportunity to taunt him.

"I definitely won't let you kill my comrades!" ...Was that what you were muttering? Now, look around you. AND TRY UTTERING THOSE WORDS AGAIN!

The realization of this moment should hit you like a ton of bricks
As your comrade's corpse gradually loses its warmth
THE FINALITY OF DEATH!
Let me ask you, Naruto. What's left in this reality for you?


Naruto is about to crack, but Hinata breaks through his despair and reminds him why everyone is still fighting, and what Neji gave his life for.

(The last frame is just my interpretation of what might be a transition to Bijuu Mode because I am physically incapable of bursting into a glowy being of light)

Comments are most welcome because I need to do something about THESE FEELS

Oh and I get asked this a lot so: My contact lenses are Crystal Max Blue from aliceandrabbitshop.com
The three of us cosplaying for this shoot had a great attachment to Neji, so we wanted to do this shoot to say goodbye to an old friend. This is also the first time we've attempted something so emotional, so it was definitely a break from the norm.

I'm debating whether to share the goofy stuff that happened behind this shoot, if only to cheer up those of you who had such sad and emotional reactions towards this set. I just don't know if it would ruin your perception of the photos. hahah.

As for my complete sentiments toward this scene and this shoot, I've poured most of it out on my previous post :pointr: [link]

In response to everyone who had violent reactions upon reading those chapters about Neji's death — I too am heartbroken that one of the Konoha 11 has been taken. I did not expect Neji to be the first of them we'd have to say goodbye to. I had hoped that he would be one of those who would survive and have a happy ending, after all he's been through. My only consolation is that in those final moments he seemed peaceful, and that he seemed to finally understand his father's decision.

That's it for now. We will have a (somewhat) happier shoot coming up!

Very good.
great even.
And much much better than I could ever hope to do.
there is so much emotion in these photos that I could never even hope to capture in one of mine. I can barely smile anymore. I show as much emotion as a corpse.
well done. keep up the good work.
I look forward to seeing more of your work.
