That’s why most fans that I’ve spoken with believe that she and Kakashi will share a moment that is similar to what happens with their parallels in Jiraiya’s book. In The Tale of a Gutsy Ninja, there are four characters that parallel Team Seven:
Naruto, parallel of Uzumaki Naruto. This Naruto is the character whom our Naruto was named after.
Renge, parallel of Sasuke.
Tsuyu, parallel of Sakura.
Shuu, parallel of Kakashi.
I’ll provide the dialogue so that you can read over it, but to summarize what happens, Tsuyu rushes to Shuu to warn him of an attack that Renge is launching against their village. She is in complete hysterics because she feels that their team is falling apart. Shuu comforts her by telling her to visualize what makes her most happy, and she thinks of Naruto. She comes to understand that it was always Naruto who brought her happiness, but she never noticed him because she was always looking at Renge. After she comes to this conclusion, Tsuyu decides to go back to Naruto and help him with his battle against Renge.
Here’s the dialogue, which was translated for us by ladygt:
Tears overflowed from her eyes.
«There there …» Her teacher stroked her head. «It’s hard, believe me, I know that.»
Tears were now unstoppable. Tsuyu, through sobbing, decided to open her heart to her sensei and tell him about everything that happened.
Shu followed her speech till the end, without interrupting.
«I don’t understand what happened to Renge…» sobbed Tsuyu. «But I would like him to…anyway, you have to believe me when I say that mount Hyakki is heading here…»
«You like Renge a lot, uh?»
«I can see it just by looking at you.»
« I thought there wasn’t nothing left for me to teach you, you that have been nominated one of the Three Ninja of Shuku. However, there’s still one more advice I can give you.»
«I’ll tell you a secret, Tsuyu. Every human is possessed by a demon» he said, «…and this demon is expressed under the form of an ideology.»
«Me, you and Naruto…we share the same demon, which is the obsession to protect the village, even if it costs our lives.»
«I think…I understand what you are trying to say.»
«Renge, instead, is possessed by a different kind of demon…»
«Although none of us can demonstrate which demon is good or not.»
«Then what….what should we do?»
«I’ll tell you a useful trick to use when you need to make a decision.»
Tsuyu nodded her head.
«Tsuyu, when you are at complete loss, visualize in your mind the thing that most makes you happy.»
«The thing that most…makes me happy?»
«By doing this, you will understand what kind of person you are.»
«Now close your eyes.»
Tsuyu did what she was told.
«Now focus on what you see.»
With her eyes closed, Tsuyu took a glimpse of…Naruto’s silhouette. Yes, him, an idiot, pervert, clumsy and reckless…him that never gives up even when he gets rejected thousand of times.
The first time I met Naruto we were both six. He introduced himself to me while saying something like:
“Nice to meet you…my name is Naruto! You can give me the love letter later! See ya!”
At that time though, my attention was completely drawn to the boy next to him, Renge…
«Tsuyu.» Lost in her thoughts, a voice brought her back to reality. «You might have failed the mission, but now you finally know what is most important to you.»
«Sensei, make sure everyone evacuates the village!» Tsuyu opened her eyes, wiped off her tears and tightened her lips in a thin line.
«I…I’m going back to Naruto.»
Given that Sakura just broke out of the genjutsu and is currently alone with Kakashi, there is potential for this moment to occur next chapter. It all depends on whether or not Kishimoto is willing to drift from the NaruSasu fight long enough to include it. If it does happen this way, it would imply that Sakura has realized that she’s in love with Naruto, which would make the potential OVA scene romantic in nature.
