I thought Naruto loved Sakura which was my only reason to think he wasn't. But in the last chapter rather than getting pissed at Sasuke, seriosly taking him on and acting protective towards Sakura he starts talking to Sasuke about how he was glad to meet him. There is a limit to friendship. You don't try and negotiate with some psycho who plans to eliminate your own village and all the people you care about. The only justification for Naruto's actions might be that he is gay with Sasugay. For some reason I'm feeling really lame reading a manga about a gay fool like Naruto.
No offence intended to any homosexuals or Naruto Fans.
