Re: Naruto Pairings FC
I disagree. There has been little solid bonding between Sasuke and Karin... certainly nothing emotional. =/
But with Naruto and Hinata, it's clearly shown why Hinata cares about Naruto, how much he inspires her, and that she wants to tell him something. In Part I, Naruto's opinion of Hinata went from viewing her as a 'shy, dark weirdo' to someone he 'really liked'. Either way you look at it, the quality of NaruHina's development is far greater than SasuKarin. =/
At least, I think so.
