Haku and Zabuza are/were gay. | Naruto Forums
Naruto: Zabuza + Haku. Naruto is actually filled with some very interesting character relationships with varying levels of complexity. Some are. But seriously i think Kishi hinted Haku and Zabuza as a romantic relationship as explicitly as he could without making homophobic Japan go. Weren't Naruto and Sasuke gay for Haku too? .. I bought the relationship of zabuza taking haku under his wing to save him. showed that he.
But what little credit I can grant Claire is quickly rescinded when she turns out to be the biggest cock tease since Fujiko in the Lupin series. Some are simple and easy to relate to like Shikamaru and his friendship with Chouji; some are pretty bleak and mysterious like the early bits of Sasuke and his family-murdering brother Itachi a plotline in the manga which recently hit a new and hopelessly retarded twist ; some are comical and purely ridiculous like Rock Lee and Gai; but some are just plain wrong like Zabuza and Haku during the first season.

As far as man-boy relationships go this one takes the cake. It would be a very different thing if the relationship between these two was one comparable to a father and son. Love really can blossom between a man and his pet boy. Angel Sanctuary takes this principle of acceptance of otherwise batshit insanity to a whole new level by having higher beings acknowledge incestuous tendencies, not unlike they do a whole bunch of times in the Holy Bible.
Because these two characters are brother and sister. No amount of open-minded progressiveness can support a physical relationship between a boy and his sister, not even the Canadian punk band Propaghandi.
Part of what makes this whole thing disturbing is that initially the kids understand well enough that this whole situation is pretty wrong to begin with. She not only eventually goes along with this but, like all crazy people, comes up with a way to justify it. Is that so wrong? If Kishimoto thought Zabuza's and Haku's bond was in any way romantic, he wouldn't go to the same extremes showing it because he's embarrassed about romantic bonds in particular.
Think of it like this: The two mouth-to-mouth kisses were decidedly not romantic a comic relief gag that neither party intended or enjoyed, and gritty CPR done on an unconscious patient respectivelyand the only kisses that are deliberately romantic between Dan and Tsunade are applied to the forehead.
Holy ****. How gay were Haku and Zabuza?
The ONLY teacher-student relationship They are exactly the same person, except that Guy is older than Lee, aside from that They're just weirdly energetic and goofy! That was nothing like the depiction of Zabuza and Haku, which makes me wonder what Kishimoto was really trying to convey. Are you sure about that? Guy said he was going to kill himself if Lee didn't make it through the surgery.
To Might Guy, Lee being able to continue being a ninja is more valuable than his own life. He'd throw everything away just so that Lee could fight again.
That level of single-minded devotion is the same kind Haku displays for Zabuza. There's also Gaara's take on Guy stopping him from killing Lee.
Guy stepping in the way reminded Gaara of Yashamaru and what he said about love. Gaara is reminded of Guy again when Sakura stops him from killing Sasuke, and again equates Guy's interference with Yashamaru's description of love. So Guy's devotion to Lee has been literally described as love on multiple occasions in the narrative itself.
I actually think that Haku was originally intended to be a girl, and that was possibly changed because they didn't want the Hero Naruto punching a girl in the face, or being slain by Kakashi's chidori. Didn't stop Kishimoto from depicting Kakashi stabbing Rin in the heart in all its gory details.
Nor did it stop him from showing Sasuke Chidori'ing Sakura via genjutsu. And Naruto ripping Kaguya's arm off. During the Wind Arc in Shippuden Naruto who is at that point the same age that Haku was I want to show you the mysteries of the female body! I hardly think the decade long age difference between Zabuza and Haku was a line that Kishimoto wouldn't cross!
And, in real life
