When the fuck did I make the retarded ass statement in proclamation that I am or that I know of what Kishi's intentions are? I am giving my
personal take on Hinata's confession segment, and I
personally believe that it was a closure to not only any further "potential" NH development, but to her personal
development as well - and the smiling approval from Hinata in 450 when Naruto and Sakura held that affectionate display in front of the entire village, and not to mention that Hinata has not once
made a significant appearance since that ordeal, shows to me that her purpose had been served. The fact in that she was willing to bring her life to an end in that very instant in exchange for the opportunity to both demonstrate personal growth on her part AS WELL AS the chance to come forth with her feelings, is closure
. You refer to my thoughts as being childish because it doesn't agree with your
Don't fucking tell me to learn to think from both sides, because I sure as fuck have been. I have been following this manga since its very release, and long before the US even knew of its existence. I have analyzed and intensively followed the plot/storyline throughout the 10 years that this manga has been in its progression, so I can assure you that any conclusions, theories, or ideas I personally interpret or present had come from actually thinking things through.
I really think you have selective reading. I never said that NH is impossible, did I? I said in comparison to NS, I find it to be extremely unlikely.
The only individuals I find to be idiots were those who have ever questioned Naruto's feelings for Sakura, as its been goddamn obvious since chapter 3 of the manga that hes always held romantic interest in her - and guess what? It's been, confirmed, and reconfirmed numerously that he holds romantic interest in her still, as has also been demonstrated in the recent manga chapters.
I could say the same with you as well. You misinterpreted many of my statements in thinking that I've said "NS IS CANONZ" or "I AM KISHI I KNOW WHATS GONNA HAPPEN" or "NH WILL NEVAR HAPPPENZ". That, my friend, is childish.
And if you aren't denying the development between Naruto and Sakura, then please tell me, how do you so firmly believe that NH and SS are more likely to occur than NS, ESPECIALLY considering that not only does NS have the most hints
in making the pairing more likely than not, but also has all of the necessary elements required to establish a romantic relationship when the other 2 pairings simply do not?
NH and SS lack what NS does not - chemistry, development, interactions, mutuality, continuity, bonding, general time spent together, growth, and much more.
Do you know why NS and NH cannot be compared in terms of development? It's rather simple. NH lacks it, NS does not
. Give them equal grounds in terms of development both in quality AND quantity and then maybe we can talk.
Yes I said your incorrect, because you are. Yamato's lines were given in chapter 297 - and your telling me that they had not had any development whatsoever since that long ago? Is this a serious statement? Since that point, Naruto and Sakura have had continuous development both individually AS WELL
as together. A few chapter examples are as follows: 298, 299, 301, 302, 305, 307, 308, 310, 311, 338, 343 (ramen scene anyone?), 346, 350, 352, 383, 404, 405, 408, 409, 429, 430, 438, 442, 443, 450, and so on (need I mention the recent manga chapters as well?).
Do you see the pattern here? Not only is it consistent
development, but its in both quantity and
quality. Is it enough that I gave you the chapter numbers to illustrate my point, or do visual aids suit you better?
The only person demonstrating ignorance in this thread is you, because you chose to deliberately ignore any counter argument in which are not in favor to your preferred pairing. Don't ask me if I have any better arguments to use, ask yourself - since you seem to have none other than "YOU AREN'T KISHIMOTO" or "NH STILL HAS A CHANCE GUYZ".
Exactly. And as has been demonstrated in the recent manga chapters, Kishi is doing that quite nicely. Tell me though, when has NaruHina EVER
been plot relevant exactly, excluding the possibility of 437 and the very little interaction they've had during the chuunin exams?
Use some common sense. Do you honestly believe that with the current fast moving pace of the plot, and the story slowly but surely approaching its climax, that there is still time to develop
Naruto and Hinata's relationship, and in such that would overshadow Naruto and Sakura's extensively developed relationship? Not only that, but to make it both realistic AND manageable? I suppose it needs not mentioning that Kishi once again brought to light Naruto's love
for Sakura - but who cares what Naruto thinks/feels, and who cares that Sakura is very likely to return his feelings as has numerously been foreshadowed, right? Only Hinata seemingly matters.
Here are some puzzle pieces to add together:
- Naruto loves Sakura, and has never once seen Hinata as anything more than a comrade/friend, yet alone in a romantic light.
- Sakura used to have feelings for Sasuke, has not once demonstrated that she still holds "true" to her prior infatuation with him since part 1, and has numerously demonstrated growth and evolution in her feelings towards Naruto in part 2.
- Hinata loves Naruto.
- Sasuke has never once shown any romantic interest in Sakura, and currently still does not.
So tell me, which of these individuals seemingly carries the most mutuality in terms of romantic exchanges as well as general development? Think about it constructively and with unbiased views and it will all make sense to you.
