^ But you get over it. She didn't even get to the love'm part with Sasuke.
Because the focus of the manga isn't on romance, the characters don't go through any natural crush phases. Love is about failure more than success. Sakura did not have a romantic relationship with Sasuke. They didn't have some great love affair. They weren't a couple. He was her crush. So it would be natural for Sakura, as a teenage girl, to move her crush to someone else. Like say Kiba just to pull a name at random. It could be anyone. This is natural and part of growing up. That doesn't mean Sakura still can't be concerned for Sasske as a friend and want him back. That's a whole other matter.
How many times do you find your true love at 12 years old? You're going to go through a number of guys to weed out the Sasukes.

Sakura's character seems to be based on romance.
And this is Sasuke were talking about, if Sakura won't love him. No girl will because Sasuke is the only boy who's personality and actions still mean something to Sakura as a person while everyone else gives up on him.
This applies to Naruto as well, but as a brother.

She definitely not see him as a brother.
What kind of sister would offer herself to his brother like she did to Naruto?
No, I think that she have strong feelings (not brother/sister) feelings for Naruto that aren't identified yet (even for her).
And like someone said before, until her feelings for Sasuke are resolved, she won't be able to face her feelings for Naruto.
Well for 3 years Sakura hasn't gotten over him. And her last thoughts on the matter still thnks things can be salvaged. She could change her mind yet but she hasn't veered off-course, there is nothing to suggest that she won't continue with her adoration with Sasuke.Originally Posted by Jessie
The focus isn't romance but it is the justification for people being there. Sakura, Hinata and arguably Ino's reason for being written in the script is for romance. Sakura isn't doing this for Naruto's bond with Sasuke she's doing it for her own one-sided bond with Sasuke. Just because it lacks reciprocation doesn't invalidate it as romance.Quote:
Girls don't find religion until 30 when they start dating nice guys for a change. So Sakura has another 14 years of this to go.Quote:
I think she did mean what she said, but the problem was that she had a motive behind it, to get Naruto to stop going after Sasuke, hence why Naruto thinks it may not be heartfelt. Plus, Sakura's probably trying to avoid losing Naruto too since she lost Sasuke and thinks he can't be saved since she really does care for Naruto. She cried in fear for Sasuke's life (I think during the exam when he got bit by the Cursed Seal) and she cried for Naruto when she learned if the bijuu gets extracted, the jinchuuriki die. All that's left is to see her reaction if Naruto "died" like Sasuke did in Zabuza arc, though I'm sure Sakura would cry too.
However, she probably does and will love Sasuke the most, but she has feelings for Naruto too.
Hinata faced her feelings towards Naruto directly and honestly. That is why she has a better face value of harboring passionate feelings for Naruto.
Sakura lied to him about a thing that she really never felt about him.
Plus doesn't Sakura know Hinata has deep feelings for Naruto? She said so herself while healing Hinata.

Eh, NarutoxHinata would be a match boring beyond reason. Hinata's a good shinobi and has great determination, but her personality is quiet and subdued. The dynamics would be awful between them. Naruto needs someone who's confident enough to smack him when he's being an idiot. And that's precisely what Sakura does.
Oh, and during Naruto and Sasuke's last meeting, who was Sakura more concerned about? She was looking almost exclusively at Naruto. In fact, her entire initiative to kill Sasuke stemmed from not wanting to cause Naruto any more pain. She's definitely still confused, but it's pretty obvious that her feelings are taking a different trend.
And another thing even though sasuke try to stab her in the head, she still cry over him, she still hesitant to kill him, her feeling for him are still there, and she still belive that naruto will be able to bring sasuke and this show her feeling for him, imagine how she would react if she know the reason for his action. She would love him even more, but it could be true she have some feeling for naruto, but it doesn't matter cause it's impossible for a girl to love two guy at the same time, sure they said they do, but they will alway love one guy more than the other, and I don't think it's fair for naruto to be with a girl like that.
I don't really think Naruto deserves a girl who has split feelings either. She'll have to figure them out before anything happens. While I am a NaruSaku fan, I could easily imagine it not happening as well. I'm just saying NaruHina wouldn't work either.
it's true hinata would often faint when she see naruto in part 1 but her growth has come to a point were she can confess her feeling to him without fainting, while sakura and her feeling are still the same as it were before, with a little improvement with naruto. And another thing so you think in a relationship were the girl boss the guy around is a healthy relationship, like for instead yell at him or hitting him. One thing that I hate about sakura is her attitude she blame naruto for stuff that are her fault like when naruto wanted to go to sleep due to the posion, she got mad at him and call him lazy, even though it was her fault. If naruto were in a relationship with her, then I believe it will be more unhealthy for him then with hinata. And another thing, I believe that her feeling for sasuke won't go away that easily especially when she know the truth about why he is being so evil, and unless it's show that she indeed have gotten over sasuke, then her ending up with naruto can only be view as, her not being able to end up with her greatest love so she settle for her second choice.
Obviosuly Kushina mellowed as she got older so she could live with Minato. Why isn't Naruto capable of that to spend it with Hinata?
Actually, if you read my post fully, I said that it's likely that NaruSaku won't work. If Kishi will keep her on her one-sided, blind obsession with Sasuke, then it won't happen. I also wrote that she doesn't deserve Naruto if she's really that stupid. I don't see how that's self-serving.
She was just pointing out that the parallel between Minato and Hinata doesn't really jive. So NarutoXHinata probably aren't going to be functioning the same way they did. Hinata just doesn't fit that mold very well.
As for Naruto and Sakura requiring some development(IE Sakura getting past her Sasuke hangup). I think that's true but it's also true, that for Naruto and Hinata, Naruto is going to have to get past his Sakura hang-up. So those two arguments seem to offset IMO.

It's self-serving to say Sakura can change-in fact must change for Naruto and Sakura to be a couple-while not acknowledging the changes in Naruto or Hinata. Naruto isn't the same hot-headed kid anymore. Sure he has his moments but he's more temperate these days. Hinata is gretting more self-confident. She is able to interact with others including Naruto. You can put a quiet person and a loud person together and make it work. It did for Kushina and Minato, there is no reason to think it couldn't for Hinata and Naruto. They are becomnig more compatible for each other it just lacks development.
I don't know. Naruto has matured. He's alot more appealing than he was as a kid. And this new chapter-539-has me confused on who Sakura loves. And while I like HinaNaru, they just aren't together enough. However, I like SasuSaku more than NaruSaku, if only because...well, in the end, I love SasuNaru. Yes, it won't be canon, but I'm on a Beyblade binge and for those who know what the old episodes of Beyblade are like, then you can understand how I got this bad. KaiXTaka forever!
