I figured Kishi's little love letter would stir the NaruHinaSasuSaku pot. I just read a long thread on another forum on it. Most of it was shippers fighting, but there was one point that did make sense. Kishi tends to play things very coy when addressing Sakura's feelings for Naruto. It is much less obvious than her love for Sasuke.
So I think it was Naruto she was talking about and not Sasuke. It would just be too obvious if it were Sasuke. There would be no reason for Kishi to add this scene if she were just confirming her love for Sasuke. He could of used another way to have a red herring this chapter than a guy in love with Sakura.
It reminded me of when Yamato was about to tell her she loved Naruto but was cut off.
Well we are seeing some romance in this war thanks to this ninja. Just not the romances we care about yet. So maybe it is a sign Kishi will finally move.
It's not an issue of Kishi being obvious, it's always been an issue of Kishi being ambiguous when it comes to Sakura and to Naruto as well. Sakura is obvious for her feelings of Sasuke, she has been ambiguous about her feelings of Naruto. Naruto was obvious about his feelings for Sakura but now they've grown more ambiguous as are his feelings to Hinata.
Sakura has been a straight arrow for Sasuke for 3 years now and we haven't seen one lick of her since Sasuke and Naruto's agreement to duel each other. We don't know what she's feeling and that remark could easily be one of embarassment in order to get rid of creepy ninja guy, as much as another confession of love for Sasuke or more remotely, Naruto.
After the false confession and how she react toward Sasuke, its a fact that the one sakura love is sasuke
So in the last chapter the one she talking about IS SASUKE not naruto....
her feeling for naruto ARE NOT ROMENTICAL
He did it again. I find it so funny how often Kishi does his signature "Rorschach Romance". And every-time people take the bait; hook, line, and sinker(myself included).
That scene is what you want it to be. As a Naruto/Sakura fan to me it's obvious that Sakura was talking about Naruto. To Sasuke/Sakura fans and Naruto/Hinata fans i'm sure it's just as obvious that she was talking about Sasuke. Absolutely hilarious.

There's not much to get from it really. Like Brill said it can easily be a statement to get the stalker away. I would honestly find it a little weird if she suddenly loves Naruto, unless the confession wasn't entirely false after all but that's useless to think about.
If she's being honest then it could be either of them. It could be Naruto because she's a little shy about it and it's plainly put not very normal to just blurp out "I'm in love with X you see" to someone that doesn't even know the guy, although the shinobi has possibly heard of Naruto's name since they're fighting to keep him and Bee safe. On the other hand she could have hid the name because saying she's in love with Sasuke, a wanted criminal is not very clever now is it? At any rate it's just another useless tease by Kishi.
Oh, shut up everyone!
She's in love with Neji after touching his muscular bare chest in the tent.
Ican't believe i wrote that, i better check if fever is back.
I am not sure if she was trolling the guy to get rid of him, or if she meant Naruto or Sasuke, but even if she meant Naruto, she still deserves to die for the previous confession.
SAKURA LOVES NARUTO
Did that convince you?
Really, if you want to discuss this romance, at least try to put some argument behind your thoughts.
And, stating opinion as if they were "facts", like you did, is really not regarded well in a forum.
This scene add nothing on neither side. There's no way to know who's she's talking about.
But, at least, it stand to show that Kishi didn't forget about romance.
Maybe he's planning on putting some war romance in the next chapters, that would be nice.

She loves Naruto (too?) but can't say it because she thinks she doesn't deserve his love... yet anyway.
Damn Kishi. It could be either one. Sure, Kishi likes to downplay any "love" Sakura has for Naruto, but too, there are a few very good reasons for her not to bring Sasuke up.
But I think it would be interesting to see if she were kidnapped. And raped. But Kishi wouldn't put the rape part in there because, this is shoenen and not fanfiction.
Let's remember to keep our fanfiction/drugs separate from the actual manga no matter how bored we are.
I'm pretty sure in an interview, Kishimoto supported NaruHina. So Sakura must be talking about Sasuke.
