And getting to that, that was one of the most stupid and selfish acts any character in the manga has ever done. Telling him she loved him counted for something, not stupidly throwing her life away to do so. She stood no chance, not even Gai, the most able ninja in the village at the time went to help Naruto because he was ordered not to. Her doing that is simply a sign of immaturity and stupidity, as there was no need for her to be put in harms way, she even acknowledges this later in front of Sakura.
So yes, the confession she made counts for something I guess, but the way she did it, and her timing was awful, much like Sakura's confession to Naruto.
Hinata: "Naruto, sorry I picked a bad time to try to save your life, I should have waited until you were dead"
Also, if Sakura was lying, then she would have been able to kill Sasuke instead of break down and refuse because of her love for him.
So basically, Sakura's not above playing with feelings and using the truth to get what she needs. Dangerous. X_x
reading some of you guy's post about hinata's confession reminded me of something. Didn't sakura did the same thing when gaara was about to kill sasuke. She probably knew that she didn't stand a chance and that she could have die, yet she jump right in front to protect sasuke without hesitation, and this scence make me wonder if she really love naruto shouldn't she have done the same thing that hinata did, the exact thing that she did for sasuke before. It make me wonder what was on her mind when she heard nauto get pin down.
Hinata was able to see what was going on and was closer to the scene than Sakura, who could barely see what happened. Plus, wasn't she with someone else trying to heal one of the Konoha 10?
She did try to save Naruto when he was in his Kyuubi mode at the bridge and got hurt for it. In Part II, she's definitely shown more care towards Naruto than before.
Also you said she try save naruto when he was kuybi mode at the bridge, what was she saving him from exactly. She was just probably worring about him, but still Idon't think she would have jump in front of naruto and defend him like she did sasuke, maybe she will but not with out hesitation like she did for sasuke.
I really tried to stay get another topic. I did. I don't understand the fixation on who's going to end up with who. I love and appreciate the romance of Naruto, but the way many people act towards it is a bit much. Kishi has so far has made it a vocal point as many writers do. There is not an established main couple. Though I find the whole mess fairly, and strangely, realistic, there are many who complain. Is it that people aren't used to this kind of love story in a shoenen manga, or is it something else?
Did you miss the conversation between Hinata and Naruto about the chunnin finals where they talk about Naruto's chances on winning? It's the only heart-to-heart conversation Naruto has had with wny girls. Hinata's feeelings of admiration for Naruto grew into feelings of love. Her admiration caused changes in herself, helping her become a better person. She saw Naruto differenrlty than others and knew his true worth before others did, That's not the groupie worship that Sakura had for Sasuke. They are different. Personal growth and accomplsihment that don't invole pumnmeling an opponent get crapped on by members on this forum, but that doesn't mean they are insignificant.Quote:
Ever watch the Pain/Naruto fight? Who came to Naruto's rescue?Quote:
Completely wrong. Naruto was not evoking the Kyuubi's cloak while staked to the gorund by Pain. That is what happens when Naruto's seal weakens via exhaustion. That didn't happen here. When Naruto expereinces great negative emotions like hate, pain, or sadness that is when he goes straight to beast forms like when with Orochimaru and Pain.Quote:
If Naruto would do this for anybody then why didn't he do it for Pa Frog. He was skewered right in front of him. According to your belief that would have triggered the event since it was Naruto's 3rd master to be killed by Pain, but it didn't. So whether you want to admit it Hinata means something to Naruto, what that is hasn'tt been revealed to us yet.
Because Naruto saves people all the time it would be silly if he went Kyuubi every time he saved Sakura. Watching helplessly while someone you care about gets killed in front of you, that is way more traumatic-worthy of going 6-tails and beyond.Quote:
So evey girl who hugged Naruto and every guy who slapped him on the ass in thanks must be romantically in love with Naruto? Bzzt.Quote:
You can say that for most girls in shonen series. All they are capable of doing is screaminjg the protagonists name. Sakura does it, Hinata does it...now everyone is doing it.Quote:
You did try, but the reality is that Tsunade and Jiraiya was never gonna happen. Tsunade was broken after the deahs of her brother and Dan, she has never been in the right mindset for a relationship so it was never going to happen.Originally Posted by Rosebunse
