There's no excuse for the lack of activity. Then again the group isn't "Major" and wasn't even when I kinda took over. I took over on a whim since I was still into Naruto, the prior admin wasn't, and I had free time so it seemed to make sense. Why not hand over the group to someone who still likes Naruto? It makes lots of sense at the start.

But now I'm also in that mode as the prior admin. Naruto just isn't that big for me. I guess you could say this began much much earlier when I was in high school and I kinda dropped the anime. I was still watching it but I was left bitter about the show with the Pain Arc, I was upset with how the anime staff handled the show. This isn't even as a NaruSaku fan, I know NaruHina got lots of love but I was more upset that the arc itself was shafted in favor of supporting a pairing. For me with anime it should be "Story before shipping". I love shipping don't get me wrong I just really was irked by that.

I dropped the anime though years prior. I was still reading them manga but somewhere along the line things staled for me. I still loved the great chapters that came out like when it had characters that were relevant but it was apparent how bad some other chapters were. It got to a point where I only read Naruto when it seemed "important" plot points came about. The whole Obito was the villain and just how the last war was executed in the manga was flat. Uninteresting, boring, and not living up to expectations. Don't even get me started on the last chapters.

Well in truth the last chapters didn't bother me as much. More like I kinda was into other shows, other anime, there were better things than Naruto. The fact Naruto ended badly just didn't effect me as much. At least until the fandom also got worse.

For the longest time I'd hesitate telling people I was into Naruto. Why? Because Naruto as it's own fandom is odd. Many fans refuse to get into other anime, many dislike other fandoms, and they have issues all their own. What with "debating" things about the manga/anime. I also really disliked how some fans would treat other fans. My friend :iconladygt: received lots of hate a little after the last chapter because she was honest in how she disliked the ending. You can dislike an ending it's fine but other fans don't see the whole picture. Most thought she disliked the ending SOLELY because NaruHina was canon. When in truth there was a lot more wrong about the ending that left us upset.

It was my lack of loving Naruto like I used to, the entire fandom as it became and really always was, which leads me to now. I am just not a fan any more.

Thing is it's okay to leave a fandom. This sounds odd even for me because I don't take hobbies so seriously but in hindsight there's more too it. When something you enjoy becomes so distorted, so unenjoyable, and you just can't stand it anymore it's okay to leave. For me I knew I just couldn't stand Naruto and being part of the fandom.

Don't get me wrong when I look back on parts of the series I like I still like them. I still loved back when I discovered amazing artists who drew fan art and whom later became awesome friends. I still love the early days of when I first stumbled onto Naruto and became part of the wider anime community. And I still dig characters and fan art and what not. But as it stands I'm just not the Naruto fan I used to be. So it's with that I must concede to handing this group over to someone else.

Whom ever reads this and thinks "Hey, I can run Pro-NaruSaku better than Flying Lion" just message me and.... I'll figure it out. Honestly I was given the group a while ago and I am bad at techy stuff. But if I look over things I'm sure I can figure out how to give this group over to someone more properly able to run it.
