Well, I guess I'll jump in this nice conversation.
I'm NaruSaku fan, but I must agree that she did help Naruto against the Neji fight.
He was not confident and after talking to her, he felt better.
I'm positive in saying that he might have lost this match if it wasn't for talking to her.
Now, that's 1 for Hinata.
As for Pain, it was Hinata that triggered the 6-tails, but it could have been anyone else. If Shikamaru would have been stabbed, Naruto would have react the same way, and I'm pretty sure that if it would have been Sakura, he would have go 8-9 tails right away.
Now, even if Neji's fight is a +1 for Hinata, I think we can't judge too much on who's the trigger to win the fight.
Here goes my little list, just for fun :
- Zabuza : Did it for himself, after having promise himself he wouldn't lose
- Haku : Sasuke's «death» was the trigger
- Orochimaru (in the forest) : Sasuke again, he wanted to proove him that he wasn't a scaredy cat.
- Kiba : To himself again, but he was under the constant encouragin of only one person : Sakura.
- Neji : Hinata
- Gaara : No doubt about this one. This one goes to Sakura.
- Kabuto : To prove himself again, and to protect Tsunade.
- Sasuke : For himself (don't wont to lose his best friend), for Sakura (to bring back the one she love), for Sasuke (to save him from Orochimaru)
- Deidera : For Gaara
- Orochimaru (4 tails fight) : Go berserk when thinking about Sasuke
- Kazuzu : To prove himself (to cross the bridge)
- Pain : For Konoha. For Jiraiya. Hinata was the last trigger, after having seen Konoha devastated, Jiraiya killed and Kakashi almost killed.
So, here goes the «inspiration of Naruto's fight list», IMO :
For Himself : 5
For Sasuke : 4
For Sakura : 2
For Hinata : 1 1/2 (to be fair, since she was the last trigger, I gave her 1/2 for the fight against Pain)
For Tsunade : 1
For Gaara : 1
For Jiraiya : 1
For everyone in Konoha : 1
So... does that help determine who's he's in love with!?
Not at all... pointless...
Anyway, that was just my two cents, just for fun.

To be honest, I do not see much news in this discussion. Aside from the last fight, you bring up arguments that were already discussed like... uhm... 20+ times in this thread >.>
I'd say we'll close this thread again, if the discussion stays this way during the next page or two. There are two fronts and both are indurated, not open to accept any arguments of the other party and just bringing up the same stuff again and again. That's not really a worthy discussion anymore.
That easy, Sasuke xD
Why? Because Naruto's constantly thinking about him xD
She's the only one that shows love towards him, treats him nice and gently, defends him, is inspired by him to put her life on the line, and put her life on the line to save him.
Sakura shows most of this also, but idk, she's just sakura XD
But I really don't care who he gets xD
I've always been a NaruSaku fan, but due to the recent developments, I guess it'll be hinata.
It's really hard to make a shipper change side.
I guess there will be no more new argument until after the aftermath, when we'll see more of Hinata and Naruto, and when they might discuss her confession.
After that, I think we'll know for sure if it's NaruHina or NaruSaku.
I voted Hinata, she's the only one that's proved her love for Naruto, she's had a crush on him for ages and put her life on the line for him...what more can i say???
haha jk man.
Anyway, I think that Naruto will end up with Hinata because Kishi made it obvious to us, that it was going to happen(I think you guys know what i am talking about)but what I hate the most is there's no relationship with Hinata and Naruto no development I mean, he pretty much spent the whole manga with Sakura and Sasuke(he thought about Sasuke in the second half of the manga) His character developed with them and his relationship with Sasuke and Sakura went from him being hated to slowly getting recognized, to finally becoming friends and more.
What development HinataXNaruto relationship have? Absolutely nothing, if she had not foolishly jumped in the fight, Naruto would have never even knew she loved him.
I support the Naruto Sasuke and Naruto Sakura pairing because the development is there and it would be cool if Kishi would not be obvious with who Naruto ended up with.

Narutoverse is all about principles and if you take it deeper, Naruto and Hinata share something very nice between them, so I see no problem when they start something.
Now, people complain that Hinata and Naruto didn't have long talks and stuff like that... What will you say if they have now?
I mean, if they somehow start dating, going for some ramen and stuff and after those things they happen to have a first kiss?
Hinate because shes doing alot to get naruto`s love , and the only the only thing sakura would do is hit him .

Not to argue with your point but a possibility of why their bond is developed more is because they are teammates and this show is called naruto so she gets the majority of the airtime but whenever hinata gets hers ... somehow she makes it worthwhile lol.
