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....
Well, I say possibly for a few reasons... the story is incomplete, so there is still a chance for Sakura to improve (or at least, to get back to what she was pre-Konoha invasion #2)... also I don't watch or read much anime/manga anymore, so I'm willing to bet there are shittier female leads out there... and well, I don't like to speak in absolutes... especially when it comes to interpreting a weekly shounen.

And for a long time, I really adored her character. I still do in a lot of ways. But I'm quite disappointed with Kishimoto's direction... =/ And I know a lot of people are feeling this way when it comes to her character, especially long-time fans like myself.

Agreed. If the SasuSaku fandom wasn't so talented, I'd probably drop the pairing entirely. I may start to look for really epic fanfics and see if I can get back into reading those... been so long though, and I don't have the patience or time to sift through ff.net....

In part 2, romantic feelings have just been used a melodramatic plot devices... They aren't really adding anything substantial to the story, like they did for me in Part 1.

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
