I don't think so... i mean... i don't want to make further comments because of the spoilers policy, but the last confrontation between Sasuke and Naruto, plus Sasuke's actions in presence of Sakura... i don't know... even Karin grew tired of him.
I don't have any hope of a development in any relationship, because facts are solid, Naruto doesn't have romance, it would be a pain in the a*s for Kishi.

At this point Sasuke x Naruto is what we are heading for.
This is one of the facts that i was pointing out.
To me Hinata is almost an imposition of the editors.

At this point, in the manga there is no room for romance at all... we need to wait until the aftermath, when usually people open their hearts.


I believe that a lot of people want some romance development, no matter if is Sasuke with Sakura or Sakura with Naruto or Hinata with Naruto... but as i said before... Kishi doesn't want any romance at all.

This is the manga thead (as indicated in the thread title) so you're fine.

I wonder. It seems obvious that if any pairing does happen then any indication would be some cheesy epilogue of who Naruto's with in ten years time or something. Would shippers really be happy with just that if their pairing came true? It seems pretty pathetic to be satisfied with just that. No real development. Just them together in the end.

About as much to expect in a Shounen manga such as this.

Yes, they would. Shippers want to win. It becomes less about the stupid pairings and more about being right. Just look at Harry Potter and Avatar.

I often wonder if pairings like Naruto x Hinata, Naruto x Sakura, Sasuke x Sakura, and Shikamaru x Temari would actually be as popular if they happened. It's almost like those fans live on the speculation of those pairings. If they actually happened in canon, a lot of their appeal would be lost.

I've been sanctioned for even less, so... i'll be careful.

I don't think that WSJ is very worried about shippers, besides, a polemic ending (Naruto with Temari for instance) would bring chaos in t3h internets. They could learn one or two things from Gainax

To me Hinata is there just because she happens to have a crowd of fans that just love her... and they keep reading the manga only to know if they are right or wrong.

I think that Kishi is pretty mediocre in that aspect, there is solid proof that Romance and Shounen can live together, despite i don't like Takahashi's work, she uses romance in her works. Same with Oh! Great, he even used it as a comic relief.

Romance doesn't need to be a (so) serious thing, i wouldn't like those dramatic love histories like Basilisk or Rurouni Kenshin, in Naruto i would aim to comic/tender/lovable situations.

Um no, people who believe Kishi is going to let a statement like Hinata is go unnoticed is simply naive.

Also Hinata is pretty much in front of the Naruto line in terms of love potential since Naruto has remained silent to Hinata since then. And is still mulling it over.

LOL!

Keep dreaming!


Hmmm....the wording of your post seems familiar.


I think you were a banned member named ajnas (also known as Jizz from narutoforums).


Although, your join date is a little old.....Did you make this membership back in November as a fail safe when you were banned?

You posted very few posts since you "joined" based on your post history......


Though, I could be wrong.....

Doubtful, ajnas made posts of formidable length, he literally could not shut up.

But more to the point, I think the issue with Hinata is merely Kishi ignoring it. Or I guess you could put it at Naruto having too much shit on his hands ATM. Regardless, there really hasn't been much progress lately.

Yeah, more important shit like signing autographs (anyone else remember that?). You're seriously telling me he couldn't take 5 minutes over a two arc period to talk to her?

Only Kishi could tell you the actual justifications. I can only say that it's because he's avoiding romance at all costs.

That's implying they're all into necrophilia.

They will inherited Orochimaru's necrophiliac characteristic .... But I like that kind of ending just like what happen in Code Geass . More dramatic and epic ending .

For sure Sakura-chan will burst in cry saying "She rather stay with naruto at first and never mind sasuke" .

what romance? there's romance in naruto? i didn't know that! lol

so it's still about naruto, hinata and sakura eh? i suppose i'd be wishing for too much if i wished for this to end, huh? oh well, romance is not really important at this point. there's a war going on for crying out loud.

as for naruto seemingly ignoring hinata after her confession, well let's give credit to kishi for not knowing how to respond to that. naruto doesn't need to address the situation. he could have just said hi or said thank you to hinata for trying to save him right after he defeated pain and returned to konoha, but he didn't. instead kishi gave us the sakura hug and she did it with everyone else watching. some shippers say that's clearly a statement, a score for the narusaku shippers. but i say it was just kishi playing to the shippers. he gave the naruhina shippers that confession and gave the narusaku that hug to appease everyone. that was how he settled it. i doubt he had planned on doing anything more than that.

I can't believe that people still think that Sakura's fake confession was the end -_-
Seriously, have you never seen people arguing and making up afterwards? So what if Naruto got mad on her back then? Like if he will keep the grudge forever, seriously people, grow up -_-

I doubted that he really had any grudge at all, just a moment of disappointment. But to me it turned into a matter of how she treats him (all the 'funny times' she hits him aside).

This may have already been posted somewhere in this thread, but this bit from tvtropes.org is pretty true.

Quote:
All Love Is Unrequited: Literally. The only two named, currently living characters who have mutual feelings for each other are a pair of one hundred year old frogs. This is in stark contrast to the Farmer-in-the-dell shenanigans going on at the unrequited front across the generations (you can just tell the author had to restrain himself from giving Tsunade a crush on Orochimaru). Surprisingly enough, the official databook tones it down more than a notch.
And one of those frogs is dead now, so there's pretty much no romance in this series at all.

At this point who cares if it is an end or not? Everyone in this manga is better off single.
