BTW, when did Neji give the nod for NaruHina?
You know I don't know what other people's reaction would be, but I would laugh my ass off if the only characters of consequence Kishimoto ended up killing in this war turned out to be.... Hinata, Sakura, and Temari. Just as a final FU to shippers everywhere.
The level of rage would be so high. I can't even really comprehend what the fan response would be to that.
Then you'd have eveyone focusing on InoxChouji.....yuck.
Here. Neji would likely support anything that makes Hinata happy.
There were two Narutos in the AU. The real one from our world and Menma. The real Naruto still liked Sakura and was turned off by slutty Hinata. It is unclear if Memna(who was a bad boy) and Hinata were a couple. The AU Sakura was apparently was sent to the real world as explained by a filler episode and didn't care about Sasuke. The real Sakura also liked Sasuke, but rejected the cheesy boy idol version of him. The AU Sasuke liked everyone.
So it is unclear what the movie was trying to say.
Nothing stops yaoi.
BTW, you'd better also kill Tenten off or the Tenten x everyone would start flowing.

Well I'll only say this, if Sasuke kills Sakura while Obito is there, and Naruto goes "whatever" I'll be truly amazed by Naruto's hip nature.
Actually this scenario would work for any of the Rookies, but mostly Sakura.
Also I don't see any reason to bring up the content in the latest chapter (611 for future references). It's completely within Kiba's character to say that as a "good friend shipping his other friend" as Regret mentioned. I don't see why Naruto was acting tough to "impress Hinata" either. Naruto has been acting tough throughout this entire fight.

With Sakura, what Kiba said would make sense, since Naruto is quite open about his feelings toward her. But not with Hinata. Now Kiba teasing Hinata over Naruto would make sense. I could care less that Kiba was chosen to say it. The interesting part was that Kishi chose to write it. He could of had Kiba say his usual meaningless bravado. But once again Kishi chose to ship tease NaruHina.

As Delbi said though, it's better to wait for an official translation. Remember when Shikaku was talkin to Genma via telepathy? Scanlator put "don't joke around" and "hey I have a joke for that!" but the official volume had Shikaku telling "keep quiet and don't talk!" with no mention of Genma joking.
Though, is there any other translator available who posted their version on this site? I haven't checked that for months, so I dunno if translators post their version of latest chapters anymore. Though, both scanlators have put Hinata.
kiba: naruto, you don’t need to act cool in front of hinata!\\
So we have three translations basically stating the same message. I didn't think it was a case of too much translation freedom anyway. It just didn't feel like such a case.
The most interesting aspect about NaruHina for me has always been what kind of offspring the two would create. Just imagine kids with Naruto's chakra and techniques, possibly with some strength from his Jinchuuriki side, combined with Hinata's Byakugan and Jyuuken. What the hell... Those kids will be like Super Saiyans. Although Kishi may keep away from this scenario by simply killing Naruto at the end of the manga /troll.

I'm all for HinataxIno, that was the hottest combination ever
My exact thoughts.
Kishi has really thrown down Sakura. It's a shame.
She would have been so much cooler had she somewhat gotten over Sasuke and even if Sasuke kicked her ass, had she went through with at least properly trying hurt him everybody would begin to respect her again.
I am not ready to throw Sakura off the cliff just yet. Kishi made sure to mention that Shikaku's plan involves the medics helping the others against Obito. The only name medic, outside of Shizune, is Sakura. This is pretty much it for her. If she doesn't play much of a role, than her fate is sealed. Any development she gets through Sasuke ruins her character further. So just having her around another Team 7 reunion doesn't help. It has to happen here.
Will Kishi have Sakura remind Obito of Rin? I know a lot of NaruSaku fans are hoping he does.
Oh, last chapter. I thought this was way more of a shipping hint than what Kiba said to Naruto.
Why? Kishi could of used Ino or Choji for this. People closer to Shikamaru and his dad. Or he could of used Naruto or another Konoha character like Sakura who knows Shikamaru. But he specifically and intentionally used Temari to remind us of her relationship with Shikamaru. It also shows that Temari thinks of Shikamaru and actually secretly admires him. Which is a change in their relationship dynamic.. Being impressed with Shika's dad only adds to the belief she will marry into that family. Just look at her face. She is getting excited about her future kids with 200 IQs.
I don't buy that Kishi trolls fandoms. He doesn't care. But he would be the cruelest guy ever if he didn't go through with this pairing now. So I believe he is all in. And the fact that it happened that same week as the Rock Lee anime aired this episode.
is only an odd coincidence.
Well that's not likely to happen. Sakura's development IS though her sordid relationship wiith Sasuke. It has been this way since the beginning of the series. Kishi isn't going to change her now. It's all she is, and her reason for still being on the team. She will be there healing people until the very end. May help in saving Naruto's life, but I don't see her being a Rin character, if anyrhing Rin is a Sakura character except more mousy.
Sorry, neither Kiba's or Temari's statements are ship-comments. They're just victims of circumstance. Kishi wants to have members outside the village praisimg Shiklaku's abilities for the assault. Temari is really the only logical choice to make said comment. Another skewed viiewing of the tea leaves.
