Would you be able to expand on why it doesnt properly catch your attention anymore? Is it the pacing? the update rate? 'not enough happening'? With lately, do you mean after the culmination of the Land of Hot Springs? Because if so then I would say that is understandable, even if I don't agree with you. What do you think romance or naruto would bring to the story? I think that your post could be so much better if you just expanded on your statements. My point is these unforgiving heartless monsters at dlp doesn't care about what you want just because you want it, neither if you like the story anymore. They want you to explain why you think the story have become less interesting, and why romance would add to Shikako's character or the story. Also sadly I am black and boil water, but that is neither here nor there. Regarding a relationship with Sasuke; I think it is just what Shikako needs at the moment. It would give her an explanation for being absent without having to mention a Spoiler clandestine porcelain career. Ofc I am joking here. It would be too out of character for Shikako, hormones or not. And Shikako wouldn't put Sasuke in such a position for something as benign as getting into anbu.
