Inojin sketch by Enock Inojin sketch by Enock
Okay, I am going to say it. I just don't like SaiIno together. Whatsoever. I strongly felt Sai is gay. *shrugs* There just so many things that a normal guy won't do like Sai did (or dress like him for that matter). No one is going to change my mind about it. Not even "it's meant for kids or Shounen manga" it's not gonna stop me.

If you like them together. That's perfectly fine! Don't let me stop you, it's just how I strongly feel about it. You have your respectable reasons, and I have my respectable reasons.

But when I do my Crack world children and doing Ino's kids...I'm always reminded of Inojin. It makes me TWITCH! *pulls hair* The colors on him......drives.me.insane. It drives me so badly insane I thought I did my own version of him. I even took Kishi drawing of him and try to FIX EVERYTHING! Uge! I love Ino and I love Sai (just not together). I just felt it was an insult to them.

Let's face it, he was drawn so fast in the manga that his colors pallet just attack each other from his "pale" parents. It's just simply ugly. I've seen people call him an alien.
What the sad thing is that he doesn't have to be that way! His skin doesn't have to be that pale like his fathers. It can finally balance out with Ino's skin. Heck, Kishi could've left black hair on Inojin, and keep the eyes color from Ino if he's going to do pale skin. Or normal skin with pale blond hair with black eyes...(actually that still looks weird in my head...)

But hey, if you love the way the Inojin looks and find him perfectly fine. Then ignore this. This is only to make myself feel better and for those that think so.

I like this design a lot better than what Kishimoto did.

I get an a gender neutral vibe from Sai myself, Ino was certainly the driving force of that relationship.  I do love this redesign!  I picture Sai to be a surprisingly affectionate and attentive father and I hope his kid gets to shine as his own character.  I remember laughing like crazy at Ino/Sai as the first thought I had was of Sai reading his books and becoming 'the perfect boyfriend' for Ino. This while Sai thought of it as a learning experience even through marriage and having a child.  That thought ruined any chance that I could take them seriously.

Shonen manga's are rarely official about non-straight orientations, though...no matter the signals.  I mean, Sai could be bi and have married to be a father, but even that would never be stated.  The 'he/she's straight cause he/she has a kid!' just doesn't cut it anymore, especially when no chemistry has been established previously.  Just my thoughts.

You have very valid point on his coloring, it hurt to look at him. As for Sai and Ino I believe it was just a quick fix. Since shika and choji married other women. And yaoi was only suppose to be a gag. The ending in all seemed lazy somewhat. Not complaining about the pairings, but still a little bit more effort.

I love your version of Inojin. He looks like an actual character instead of... canon him.... As with Enock, I'm not hear to bash any pairings or those who like Inojin's canon design. In my opinion, Sai and Ino were put together in the end because Kishimoto wanted them to be with someone, so he "paired the spares". I personally hate when that happens in any form of media; romance must come naturally, not appearing out of nowhere at the end... but that's just my opinion. I adore fanfiction, and I have seen many pairings that I don't agree with (and sometimes the author writes it well enough to make me support them). Regardless of all that, well done Enock!

*cries* .....It's so true, Shawn. It is "paired the spares." It is totally true! T.T I  just don't like it either, if they wanted to place them together, I'm pretty sure a lot of people would say "ah! So that's how they came together!" I don't think the couples in this ending won't be so harsh if we got a good explanation.....but ah...*rolls around in the dirt* Urge! Only the best fanfics has to do it for those that care about those couples. Which I totally get. T.T Thank you for the comment and sharing your opinion. I love hearing ppl opinion. ^.^

I kinda like this really. The hair mixing seems a realistic thing, especially for anime kids.

And as for Sai-Ino... I can't say I'm 100% supportive of it. She's too good for him...

Now that kid i would like to see in the manga.I just love how you mix the hairs with your kids.
As for Kishi. I agree with ever thing you said. I have no idea why he had to go and make ever kid a clone of the father or a perfect mix of both. Really I find all the kid boring or bad in looks. I really wish he did not do half of them but see as he need a fellow up and Team 7/10 need kid. I guess they had to be.

Although his design is fine (but uninspired). His color scheme screams 'walking corpse' to me.

If you mean Kishi's Inojin, then yeah, it is like a walking corpse. I don't know how he just agreed with it when he colored him. "place that and that, done!" Print it. =_=

I'm still disappointed by Kishi's final Pairings...

But I'm still Shipping my own way.
Between the Infinite Tsukoyomi and all his AU chapter title pages (Westerns, LotR, and Minato & Kushina raising Naruto) Kishimoto pretty much gave his blessing.

*pats shoulder* :hugs: I know. I don't like the whole ending either. For me, the plot holes and well everything about it made me not please.

You should! I think we all should ship what we want to ship and not like a ship that we don't like. Every one should find the ending to Naruto in their own way. Just like I am doing with the Naruto Period for everyone. *nod nod*

Tell you the truth, the way Chouchou was drawn, I think she was supposed to be ChojiIno's child. She looks, at least, had effort put into her design and the way her hair is. It looks too much like Ino's hair. Unlike SaiIno which was truly made from the that fast moment, Chouchou was thought out in design. It's too bad Chouchou's personality isn't all thought out*shake head* But that's just me.

I almost thought I'd like ChouChou based off 700...but everything since then has made her easy parody fodder.
Her hairstyle is like a cross between Ino & Temari's 'The Last' hairstyles. Maybe she likes her Aunties. :D

I don't see why you would see Sai as gay or straight. He didn't seem to hold any interest in either gender. But that's just my perception.

Enock Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, I totally agree with that too. That he doesn't seem to be interest in anyway. I actually expected him to not have gone with no body for the ending.

*thinks* I thought he was gay because he's so interest in Naruto's penis and him calling girls ugly. I figure he isn't interest in girls at all if he thought that. *blinks* But that's just me.

The way I see it he didn't 'get together' with anyone, but was rather 'claimed' by Ino. He seems to have a fairly passive personality and her's is very dominating and forceful. She seemed interested in him mostly because of his flattery and so probably put a leash on him so as not to have to go chasing after him like Sakura did with Sasuke.

 I can totally see that happening. It's a great way to explain how they came together. Sai would be an easy push over, but that isn't right for the Sai though. *shake head*  T.T
