The Way I See It...
The way I see it, I think that there is a set order that has to happen before NaruSaku can ever happen:
(WARNING: Obviously, this post contains information about pairings, so if you are uninterested or get easily offended on the matter, do not read.)
- First, Team 7 has to reunite. They need to resolve the issues that exist between them. Naruto will not confess to Sakura until Sasuke is back (Naruto about confessing to Sakura: “How can I? I can’t even keep my promises”).
- Sakura needs to resolve her feelings for/thoughts on Sasuke. This kind of connects to the previous point. She needs to figure things out with Sasuke, and then with herself.
- Naruto needs needs to resolve things with Hinata. She confessed to him and he has not officially responded. Things will have to be either explicitly stated or heavily implied that they have come to an understanding about how they feel towards each other. This and the previous point can be interchangeable time-wise. One does not necessarily have to happen before the other. However, if I had to pick an order, I’d say that Naruto/Hinata would be resolved before Sasuke/Sakura simply because Naruto was just confirmed to still harbor romantic feelings towards Sakura in chapter 631, and therefore the only mysterious/ambiguous feelings reside within the Sasuke/Sakura pairing (which I’m sure Kishimoto will use to his advantage for as long as possible).
- Only after the previous conditions have been met can Naruto and Sakura be together. The only way that this pairing can happen is if every obstacle that was once in their way has been resolved. This would show that neither Naruto nor Sakura made any decisions before thinking everything through. There would be no “second choice” because they would both choose each other despite everyone and everything else.
So, stop worrying about Sasuke being “back”. People are saying that they are doubting that NaruSaku will happen because of his return, but really it was only a matter of time (come on, we all knew it would happen). And the fact that he returned is actually a good thing for NaruSaku, since nothing could officially happen before that (as stated above).
I just wanted to throw this together really quick for those stressing out over Sasuke’s return. I know it’s pretty vague but hopefully I got my point across. Anyway, this seems to me to be the only way NaruSaku can be done right, in my opinion.
