    just right after Naruto manga and anime ended with end couple is officially NaruHina though sadly they didn't get anough screentime together which made fandom doubted it would happen. Ans throughout the episodes the fillers inclusion the canon add on we seen tons of NaruSaku that made it seem like a development as if they were the official couple especially that one anime music video that has Naruto vs Sasuke that ended with Naruto head on Sakura's lap and you all know what happened.


    What I'm getting at is that all those moment that seemed like a build up including the manga moments was just pointless in the end.

    If that was supposed to be a love triangle Hinata should've been given a more motivation showing not only getting stronger but also trying to compete against Sakura as konoichi rivalry. That hugging scene after like Naruto defeated Pain and Hinatas confession that nearly costed her life. Sakura went up and hugged Naruto while Hinata just stood by did nothing as if she officially lost trying to gain Narutos acknowledgment.

    I find it funny he had no problem given more Naruto and Sakura interactions if that was not meant to be such romantic moment.

    Kishi is a guy who goes along with what is popular.

    - Sasuke became popular after ditching Konoha, Kishi started to sucking off him in pt 2.

    - NaruHina became more popular pairing, he made it canon.

    Lets compare Kishi with say... Hajime Isayama.

    No one liked Eren at first.

    But Ishiyama has wrote him in such way that Eren is now fan favourite.

    If Kishi was writing AoT then he would've made Levi into Sasuke because of his popularity.

    NaruSaku made way more sense since it actually had buildup and development plus Naruto wanted Sakura since the first few chapters. NaruHina is just a forced asspull.. Naruto never even liked Hinata

    It was pretty obvious in part one of Naruto that Kishi was aiming for NH (and SS). Character actions in the FoD, the Chuunin exam arena and in the proud failure speech pretty much seal the deal. I do think that he received suggestions to switch up pairings as he entered into part two and that he gave NS a test run during the first several arcs, but decided against it by the time he approached the ending of the Pain arc. Once Hinata confessed her feelings and survived Pain's attack the die was cast. This was soon followed by Sakura's infamous confession just to put the final nail in the NS coffin. Anything NS from this point on was trolling, plain and simple and his idea of a 'love triangle' (which it resembled not at all).

    NS filler was partially assumption and partially a few writers' agenda since they pushed it long after Kishi made it obvious that it was dead in the water.

    Pointless? The filler arcs in Naruto? What the fuck are you on about?

    Seriously though. Naruto was often shipped with Hinata or an original character for filler arcs in Part 1 (Sasame Fuma, Toki, Isaribi, Menma, Hokuto). Probably because filler writers wanted to write Part 1 Sakura even less than Kishimoto did.
    In Part 2, as Sakura became more interesting to write because she could actually do stuff. So she got more screentime with Naruto. But they also overused the hell out of the violent Sakura- embarassing perv Naruto running gag. It wasn't exactly romantic between them.

    Nah. The direction romance would go was always determined by the female characters while the guys were mostly concerned with powering up. What indicated further Kishi's pairing plans were scenes set up between each couple showing that the boys had an affinity with their prospective romantic partner (NH significantly with the proud failure scene and Sasuke with his acknowledgement of Sakura's genjutsu ability--not to mention various scenes in the FoD.

    Kishi's idea of a love triangle really didn't fit with the definition with which I'm familiar . When I think of love triangle I think of two characters (usually female) competing for the attention/love of another. Betty and Veronica vying for Archie as example. There was none of this in Naruto: Hinata was a shy girl who for much of the story kept her feelings to herself and Sakura never truly appeared to consider Naruto boyfriend material. Of course, I've not followed a ton of manga/anime so I may not be up on the Japanese concept of love triangles. :mlpshrug

    Japanese love triangles follow the same concept as the example you used

    Nisekoi, Rosari Vampire, Never Learn, etc...


    Hence the term Harem manga or Harem protagonist

    It is just that instead of just two girls there are even more vying for the protagonist

    Either the protagonist is clueless and dense or he likes on of them (usually a childhood crush or the most popular girl) while the female barely knows he exists or is just as clueless only to later realize that she likes him to

    But by then he has feelings for more then one girl (surprise)

    So she just joins the Harem of trying to get with the protagonist

    It also is over the top and fast paced on how or why these people fall for the protagonist... usually stupid reasons or just because he called her cute or helped her that one time

    If anything Sasuke I'd the main candidate for this since he is/was clueless/dense and had like 3 girls gunning for him

    Yeah, that's why he spent 3/4 of the manga developing the other.
    Sorry but whenever someone says Kishi planned this or that, its a complete ass pull.

    In truth, he made his decision after sakura's poor confession, due to fan backlash, mostly by die hard naruhina fans. The 2010 interview gives it away.

    how did he guilt tripped her? he just told her the truth with honest intentions, That's why he had such backlash.

    for them to be a couple it has to be consensual, Sasuke did nothing but reject her. :oldryoma

    confessed her love while being sincere according to kishimoto
    hugged and caressed him after saving the village from pain
    gave him cpr
    She slowly started to respect him to the point where she would rather fail an exam than see his dream fail.

    Yup, thats a lot more than the cold shoulder that she has always recieved from saskay. To the point where even kishi admits he doesnt even know nor cares how they would end up together. :tupac

    Naruto dodged the world's most dangerous bullet by not ending up with Sakura :catshivers

    but then again he had that main character plot shield as stated by Kishi in the interview above

    he was always safe:catwalk

    Finally getting back to you, Sui! :wink
    Sincere in her caring for Naruto and wanting to spare him from further pain (by her hand). Sincere in expressing romantic love for him--a lie so obvious that he reacted with anger.
    Proof of Sakura's caring nature and the strong bond of friendship that she and Naruto developed as team mates. Not to mention that I believe Sakura would have performed cpr on anyone in such desperate need.
    Sasuke gave everyone he cared about the cold shoulder--it was his defense against feeling the pain of losing anyone ever again. Still, Sakura got to him with her caring nature as is obvious in his various reactions in the FoD. He continued to reject her in every way he could, right up to that genjutsu stab to her heart, determined to drive her away from him and his self-destructive solution for peace. But don't mistake his actions for a lack of care: That trembling ankle as he left her lying at Kakashi's feet betrayed his true feelings.

    I'm inclined to think so, given that there is emphasis placed on Sasuke's ankle with movement lines on either side of it immediately after we hear Sakura's heartfelt words and Kakashi's talk of recapturing old times. It was a hesitation on Sasuke's part, as betraying of his feelings as that sad half glance at Sakura as he struck her with that genjutsu (if you think that was a grin of cold contempt you are mistaken--replace that rinnegan eye with a normal black one and you'll see the true expression). Sasuke's expression belies his words.
