Possibly one of the most disappointing female leads in a long time
You're too kind.
Best to stick with Fanon when it comes to pairings in this manga, at least for now anyway. Despite the Hinata confession, the NS fiasco and the fact that Sasuke tried to kill the 2 girls that actually liked him beyond good looks every possible relationship is still 1 sided.
I hoped that Kishi would bring some aspects of it into clarity with Naruto's brief return to Konoha, but unfortunately hes rushing right into the training/war. That says a lot about his sense of urgency when it comes to writing about romance.
I know its a subplot but damn....
