Well, going simply by which would be the most convenient with the current manga developments/situations... NaruSaku or NaruHina. Because they're all together at the moment. xP Followed by SasuSaku, though Sasuke is currently still battling Itachi and if he survives (which he will), heading towards Madara.

I didn't say ShikaTem because neither have received any focus recently and it looks like the current plotlines will remain on Team 07, and those who surround them, which is Team 08, Hebi, and Akatsuki (Madara, Kisame, Zetsu, and Itachi).

But I honestly don’t think pairings will receive a significant amount of attention/development for some time, as there are far more pressing plot lines to tell, and if anything, we'll get romance that is accommodated to work for the plot lines. And considering that in the recent interview, Kishi stated that Naruto had to 'wait', I wouldn't be surprised if that ends up being true for his love life as well. =/

Since, in all honesty, Naruto is stuck on Sasuke. And so is Sakura. Something will have to change/get resolved in that department before romance peeks back into the game. That's what I think anyway, though we may receive small developments here and there... for any of the pairings. *shrugs*

I also think that Sakura's feelings for Sasuke will have to come back into the forelight in some way, either to reaffirm them or to show that they have changed. Since she will be receiving focus this year along with Sasuke (though it is not clear yet if their development will be interconnected, but I think its a likely possibility), this may be resolved.

And yes, I do think that Hinata's long-standing affection and admiration for Naruto will receive attention. Hinata's feelings for Naruto were retained and quite obviously reaffirmed in Part II, while both Lee and Ino seemed to have dropped their former crushes on Sakura and Sasuke (nothing's been mentioned, basically, though the anime included Lee's affections in Part II).

By using Hinata's one short appearance to do this, it tells me that Kishimoto intends to use those feelings for some purpose. And since Team 08 fell into place as the Team 07's allies in this mission, a mission that is of the upmost importance to Naruto (and even gives Shino an opportunity to shine and make up for missing out on the first rescue mission xD), I would like to think it has more reason than just fan service... I hope they don't get pushed to the side in the way that Team Gai, Ino, and Chouji all have. =/

Which is possible. Y_Y

So this turned in a bit of rant that doesn't entirely relate to pairings, but oh well. ^///^

about Lee's "affections" for Sakura, he might have just as well walked into a room blindfolded, held out his finger, and spun around for 10 seconds, then stopping and whoever he ends at, he'll go after. that's practically what happened... minus the blindfold.
I don't agree with that entirely.. though yeah, Lee expressed a strong interest in Sakura the moment he met her. This is because of his personality and how much spirit he puts forth in all areas of his life. The fires of youth burn unfailing!!!111!

xP So maybe I do agree? Ahahaha xD

Fanart! = O

If the elephants have past lives yet are destined to always remember
It's no wonder how they scream
Like you and I they must have some temper

And I am dreaming of them on the plains
Dirtying up their beds
Watching for some sign of rain to cool their hot heads

And how dare that you send me that card when I'm doing all that I can do
You are forcing me to remember when all I want is to just forget you

If the tiger shall protect her young then tell me how did you slip by
All my instincts have failed me for once
I must have somehow slept the whole night

And I am dreaming of them with their kill
Tearing it all apart
Blood dripping from their lips and teeth sinking into heart

And how dare that you say you'll call
When you know I need some peace of mind
If you have to take sides with the animals
Won't you do it with one who is kind

And if the hawks in the trees need the dead
If you're living you don't stand a chance
For a time though you share the same bed
There are only two ends to this dance

You can flee with your wounds just in time or lie there as he feeds
Watching yourself ripped to shreds and laughing as you bleed

So for those of you falling in love keep it kind
Keep it good
Keep it right
Throw yourself in the midst of danger but keep one eye open at night
