Picture this, the sun is shining on you’re highly blessed and favored melanin. You’re in a diner munching on your favorite fries and you’re listening to your man talk about the Hidden villages like it’s fantasy football. You look into those eyes as they dance with excitement as his voice goes into detail about the battle between Garaa and Rock Lee but lowers in shame about how wicked Sakura should have been as a character if they gave her more screen time and better characterization. Here is the thing though, how do you tell him you love his anime but you just watch a little bit more than Naruto?
Yeah, we all were here for this long battle of tag between Naruto and Sasuke, but how do you tell him that you’re here for his anime but ready for the next level? Is it going to be a ninjitsu battle between Sub or dub anime? Will he start side eyeing you when your manga collection is at peak overflow status in your room. You already know your posters and scrolls are in pristine condition. He just seems so excited about Naruto. So what can you do to express this support but let them know you’re down for the romantic business as soon as your favorite show updates on Crunchyroll? You swipe on Facebook seeing an update from Black Girls Anime and Adornedbychi! Does that shirt say “I call my man Hokage?!” you think as you click to open the post.
You look across the table, now here is a man to be Hokage, but then you think to yourself maybe I would make a great Hokage too.
