Naruto: Deidara Lives by SractheNinja Naruto: Deidara Lives by SractheNinja

Well folks, here it is. This is what I've been working on for days and days now. Thought this up a few weeks ago after I saw Sasuke resting up in that inn. My mind started working up ideas. I could scarcely believe the things Sasuke's been capable of lately. It's so utterly preposterous, I couldn't sit back and do nothing. I had to call this out into the open. And who better to do it with than everyone's favorite art ninja, Akatsuki no Deidara. But it wasn't just to call out Sasuke. It's also for me to argue that Deidara is not dead. Of course realistically, he's not dead for different reasons than those here, but either way, he'll live FOREVER.

I didn't realize at the opening, just how long this would be. If I had, I might have done it in comic pages. However, I didn't realize until it was a bit too late, just how large it would be. As I said in the preview for this, the comic made me realize there's only so big you can make a picture in Photoshop. 50 inches apparently. But I lowered the resolution, since it was high already, and it worked out fine.

For this comic, I was sort of going for the feel of another "Sasuke Fails At Pokemon" sort of thing. It's not hard, since Sasuke's become so ridiculous. I'll explain, because it's just my way.

Sasuke's resting in the room at the inn. He's sent Suigetsu, Karin, and Juugo out, for one reason or another. This doesn't really come into play in the comic, so I didn't flesh it out. All of a sudden, there's a knock on the door. Sasuke opens his eyes and looks, to it. As it opens, a hand with purple fingernail polish grips in, and Sasuke is shocked to see Deidara sliding the door open, looking as well as he ever did. Sasuke can't believe this and, in shock, questions how it could have possibly happened. Deidara then flashes back to the happenings of the end of their battle and explains just how ridiculous Sasuke's "escape" was. Sasuke, persisting on his question, bring the conversation back to Deidara's survival. Deidara, replies by reasoning that since Sasuke can perform impossible actions, there should be no sense of logic to limit any other characters from doing the same. He even uses the seemingly ridiculous example that Tobi could be the Akatsuki Leader. In short, if Sasuke can do everything he did with no chakra in microseconds, then surely Deidara could survive his own self-destruction. They both state eachother down for a moment. Then Deidara ponders just where Tobi could be, while Sasuke yells at Deidara in frustration. Meanwhile, somewhere in the distance, Tobi feels something, and wonders if it could possibly be his sempai.

I know there's a lot of Sasuke bashing in this one, but I'm just so frustrated with him lately. And Deidara-sempai is a wonderful vessel for venting that frustration.

I really like how most of the panels turned out. I'm not entirely sure what else to say. I'm a little tired from working on this pretty hardcore for days. So if I think of some more things to say later, I'll come back and say them. Other than that, I wish you all enjoy my little comic.

Because Sasuke's a main character, logic doesn't have to apply to him unless it's necesarry to the plot XD

Is this what happened ? I thought it was Tobi using his space-time ability who saved him. At least this is what made the most sense to me when I tried to remember how he escaped.
godjacob Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014
Wow, your theory is actually a better explanation for Sasuke's survival than the actual explanation.

Submitted in... 2007? Holy cow, Deidara's death was that long ago?!

But I do like the comic. He was my favorite Akatsuki back then, and I was absolutely livid that he lost for the reasons he did. Love how he mentions all that here. XD
cytez-kaimee Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014
XD so true....... the wonder of epic anime shizzz
amptcat Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
the "space time jutsu" was just the snake reverse-summoning, but the shit about him not having enough chakra and doing it way ridiculously too fast is really true. Sasuke is prettymuch just a giant mary sue fagboy that needs to die.

i thought he just unreleased the summon. sharingans don't take heavy amounts from uchiha they are genitically fit for it. sasuke's genjutsu was sharingan related so i doubt it took much chakra. so the only real whole was the summoning of the snake. well actually the only reason he was on the floor in the first place was because he shocked those clay snakes. i think at that point it wasn't much about him needing to stand up and more about him not wanting diedara to counter with something. cause diedara could move with little problem. and really the real crap of an ass pull was deidara. he said that he can he learned to dispel Sharingan genjutsu with only using his left eye yeah the eye hidden behind his hair.  so yeah that was all the rediculous cause yeah since both of your eyes are connected to your brain there is no way in hell that one eye would be under the effects and the other wouldn't be how much is he gonna do. And thats the reason i like shikimaru the best.
