The Akimichi family - Chouchous humor

Chouji and Karui looks at their daughter in confusion

Sitting at a cafe with their daughter, Chocho scolds her father to stop eating large amounts of big-sized meals in front of her, where Karui comments she doesn't mind, but humorously comments she wouldn't eat it. As Chocho continues bickering with her parents, Sarada approaches the family and the two slide to a different table. Chocho then comments on how Karui and Chouji are possibly not her parents, leading the two to look at their daughter in confusion.


  • It is revealed in the final chapter that Chouji and Karui are married and have a daughter name ChoCho.[1]

Among the Fans

ChouKarui was completely unknown to the fandom until chapter 700 and became quite a shock to many fans when it was revealed that the two characters got together. But despite coming out of nowhere, and not even existing as a crack pairing, the fandom seemed to quickly warm up to the couple as the two characters did seem compatible to many.


  • The shipping between the two characters was originally treated as a "crack pairing" couple. This comes to show that even the unexpected or low-chance couples in one's sight can still come true.
