NH and SS fans love to say Hinata and Sakura are truly in love with Naruto and Sasuke respectively. But Naruto’s feelings for Sakura aren’t love or are gone. Sorry, but why are they gone? Cause Naruto decides that he doesn’t want to spend every moment of every day, repeating Sakura’s name. That he has more important things to do besides being obsessed. Sorry but like my friend Inferno180 likes to point out, we never had a scene that Naruto questions his feelings. And if you think that means Naruto doesn’t love Sakura, sorry but you’re reading the wrong series(I guessed already). In Naruto, if something isn’t talked about, but isn’t countered it means it’s still true. People questioned if Naruto wanted to be Hokage because he stopped talking about it for about an arc. Well he told Obito, being Hokage is still his dream. People thought Ino didn’t like Sasuke anymore because she didn’t think about him. Well she cried when she heard the order for his death. The dream proved she still likes him. We didn’t hear about her crush on Sai either after the Kakuzu and Hidan arc. But the dream proved, she likes him still too. So why are Naruto’s feelings different. Why when Kishi kept these feelings consistent, that he would screw up Naruto’s feelings.
Also why are Naruto’s feelings, a crush? A crush means they like the person. They want them to be happy and they want to together with them. But what makes love so different, so beautiful is the idea you would do ANYTHING to make them happy or safe. And Naruto DID that. When he heard how much Sakura liked Sasuke, he was heartbroken.
If that was all, it be just a crush. But he made a promise that he would bring Sasuke back, smiling. Naruto would give up his chance with Sakura, so she’ll be happy. He was willing to crush his happiness for hers. If you can’t understand how important that is, you don’t know love. I’ve never fallen in love, but even I can understand that, why can’t you? Stop using the promise of a lifetime to attack Sakura or say how NS is dead. The Promise of a Lifetime is one of the biggest developments for NaruSaku. It showed when Naruto’s feelings moved to love. It doesn’t mean Naruto gave up. he still asked for dates. That alone means he didn’t give up. Also if Sakura was so horrible, why did she cry harder and thank Naruto.
Yes, she begged for his help. But at that point what could she do. Shikamaru forbid her from coming, Kakashi was away. Naruto was their teammate and he was on the team. Do you want her to ignore her feelings? Sounds harsh for a “girl in true love”. She liked Sasuke, he was in danger and he left, she was 13. What do you expect. She’s not perfect. NO ONE is, so stop expecting her to be.
In fact, in my opinion Hinata’s feelings and Sakura’s feelings for Sasuke are crushes. They care and want them to be happy. But its obvious they think more of themselves then the object of affection themselves. Never once has Hinata thought of Naruto over herself. Each time she helped him, it never hurt her. She would never get hurt for being cheated on. She had multiple healing creams when she gave one to him, she never stood up for him, she doubted him. In 573, she heard Naruto was fighting the mastermind how did she react?
That was all. She didn’t think of helping Naruto, she didn’t even worry about him. Instead it was just about HER. Its always about her. And that’s why I hate her. For anyone saying “but she was willing to die for him”. So? It was obvious that during her confession, she was only doing it for herself. She didn’t call for help, she didn’t try to break the blades, she ran for a suicide attack. She had all of Katsuyu’s info, she saw the fight, she KNOWS her approach was STUPID. Sacrificing your life is not the epitome of being in love. What matters is your motives, and Hinata’s was pure selfishness.
Same for Sakura’s feelings for Sasuke. It was just a schoolgirl crush at first. It did mature, but at the end it was still a crush. During her confession, she obviously couldn’t actually do everything for Sasuke otherwise, why did she scream this
“If you take one more step, I’ll start screaming”, she never planned of letting him leave or even leaving her home. Sorry actions speak louder than words. Her confession was saying without him, even with her family, friends and rest of Team 7 she’ll be lonely. Not the best thing to say to an orphan.
So if Naruto’s feelings are love and Hinata’s feelings and Sakura’s for Sasuke are a crush. Why do I support NaruSaku? Because I only support Naruto. NO. Because I saw NaruSaku has a chance. And I was right. Because I can say with 100% certainty Sakura loves Naruto more than Hinata does and ever will. Like Naruto, Sakura has been willing to sacrifice for him.
She was willing to put her life on the line and willing to lose her friendship with Naruto so he would be safe. She hated lying to him, but she did it to keep him safe. The idea of Naruto being in pain cause her to cry
She trusted him, she supported him, she knows him.
Why should we support NaruHina or SasuSaku anyway? Because Hinata would be sad, because Sakura is still a Sasuke fangirl. Well so 1, Hinata is a side character, plenty of side characters get their hearts broken. In fact see Air Gear, Ikki(main character) chose Ringo(female lead). Kururu(side character) lost and she was the favorite choice in the fandom. 2, That isn’t Sakura. That hasn’t been Sakura since the early parts of the Chunin exams. Accept her character development.
If 615 was NaruHina big canon moment. Why couldn’t Hinata reach Naruto
But Sakura could speak for him
When Sakura interacts with Sasuke, she looks like this
But when Naruto looks talks to her. She does this
Why should I support NH when Hinata doesn’t understand Naruto? Why should I support SS when Sasuke turns Sakura into Hinata? I support NS because Sakura understand Naruto and because around Naruto, Sakura is herself and Naruto is happy for it. I don’t care if you call me bias. Because I am bias. EVERYONE IS BIASED. If I wasn’t, I’d be a computer. But I try to be objective and that’s why I ship NS. It makes sense, unlike the horribly done NH or the disgusting SS. If you ship NH or SS good for you. But stop twisting facts.
Naruto: I’ll swim and sail on savage seas With never a fear of drowning And gladly ride the waves of life If you will marry me No scorching sun, Nor freezing cold Will stop me on my journey If you will promise me your heart And love me for eternity
Sakura: My dearest one my darling dear Your mighty words astound me But I’ve no need of mighty deeds When I feel your arms around me
Naruto: But I would bring you rings of gold I’d even sing you poetry And I would keep you from all harm If you would stay beside me
Sakura: I have no use for rings of gold I care not for your poetry I only want your hand to hold I only want you near me
BOTH: To love to kiss to sweetly hold For the dancing and the dreaming Through all life’s sorrows and delights I’ll keep your love inside me I’ll swim and sail on savage seas With never a fear of drowning And gladly ride the waves of life If you will marry me
“For the dancing and the dreaming” from How to train your dragon 2 (x)
I just watched HTTYD2 with my mum the other day and I can’t help but think of naruto and sakura singing (and maybe dancing) to this.
I wanted to post this for narusaku week unfortunately I just had an operation so.. yeah I tried to finish this as fast as I could.
If any of you guys want to take a listen to the song I posted the link above although it’s just a cover song (IT’S AMAZING!)
The episode opened with a flash-forward to 1954: Claire tending to her perfectly healthy and adorable flame-haired muffin, which, looking back, was maybe the writers’ way of giving those fans who had not read the novels a small shred of hope to focus on once the bloodletting started. The beloved heroine had been rushed to the hospital after witnessing her husband’s betrayal (Jamie had sworn to leave Black Jack alone, but instead was found in the forest engaged in a duel with the man Claire still believed to be her future husband Frank’s ancestor) and lost the baby. Delirious with fever, forever damaged by the loss of a child, and apoplectic and let down by her soulmate’s broken promise, this could have easily veered into Lifetime movie territory. Instead, Caitriona Balfe rose to the occasion and churned out what should be an Emmy-winning performance, and the show presented one of the most honest looks at grief to ever grace a TV. They stuck with her through her pain, which she was forced to deal with solo, given that Jamie had gotten himself thrown in the Bastille, and eventually made her get back up again and carry on because there was still history-changing work to be done and a husband to save … again. In a brief break from the brutality, La Dame Blanche is asked by the King to preside over a secret backroom inquisition of Master Raymond, who quickly became our favorite French character, and St. Germain, which highlighted many of the other things Outlander does well, like set design, costumes, secondary character casting, and dabbling in mysticism. But the break was brief, and when Jamie returned home, there was more meaty dialogue to chew up. —Carrie Bell Caitriona Balfe discusses the episode.
I have fallen to my knees As I sing a lullaby of pain I’m feeling broken in my melody As I sing to help the tears go away Then I remember the pledge you made to me
(Chorus) I know you’re always there To hear my every prayer inside I’m clinging to The promise of a lifetime I hear the words you say To never walk away from me and leave behind The promise of a lifetime
Will you help me fall apart Pick me up, take me in your arms Find my way back from the storm And you show me how to grow through the change I still remember the pledge you made to me
I am holding on to the hope I have inside With you I will stay through every day Putting my understanding aside I am comforted
Yesterday as I said, the Naruto fandom doesn’t understand our main characters. Sakura is the main victim, unfortunately. One of the stupider views is Sakura doesn’t care for Naruto at all. That if he was dying, Sakura would still only think of Sasuke. Sorry, but that was disproved in chapters 3 and 5.
Sakura was at her fangirlest and she still felt bad for Naruto and worried for his safety. Or said fact Sakura grew up from being a fangirl during the Chunin exam. But after reviewing the series, I noticed that after Sakura grew up from being a fangirl and her feelings for Sasuke matured, she was NEVER happy with her feelings for Sasuke. Even in Part I.
But instead it was Naruto that made her smile.
But also compared to her feelings for Sasuke, Sakura’s feelings for Naruto are just more intense. I’ve never seen Sakura more sad than at the thought of Naruto being hurt.
Never seen her give more tender smiles than towards Naruto
In the end, Naruto brings out emotions far more extreme than Sasuke could. When Sasuke nearly died.
Sakura is shocked. But when Naruto nearly died.
She is just as shocked and devastated, broken.
When Sasuke is insulted, she is obviously mad
But if Naruto is insulted, she is furious.
Finally when insulted by Sasuke, Sakura is sadden and hurt
But when she thinks Naruto would think less of her.
she again looks devastated. If the fandom can agree that Sakura was in love with Sasuke during Part I, why can’t we agree that Sakura is in love with Naruto if for every feeling she had with Sasuke, she also felt with Naruto, but more extreme. Sakura’s feelings for Naruto aren’t an overnight thing, they have been steadily growing and maturing in the years, she has known him. If you couldn’t see them, then you should reread the series again and try without your bias. Who knows you might enjoy the series more that way.
