Re: Hinata Hyuuga vs Sakura Haruno
The general arguements for NaruHina so far have tended to be:
"She'll be a good housewife"
"She doesn't punch Naruto"
"she haz bigger boobs lol "
"She's always loved Naruto"
...so in summary, the majority of the people on this forum would prefer Naruto to end up with his stalker, that "loves" him, because she'll be a good little woman, stay in her place, cook his food, and be more appealing visually?
Love isn't about that. Naruto & Sakura share a sense of humour, a deeper bond. There's tension, arguements, passion. Being passionate about something makes you stronger, it makes a relationship more worthy. It's been hinted at that Sakura likes Naruto, right from the start of the manga, even in Part 1, at many points. Naruto and her are just similar and different enough to work. She's helped him improve, he's helped her see people for what they really are.
Naruto will likely be the key to showing Hinata the way to come out of her shell. Confidence in herself. Just because he doesn't hook up with her doesn't make what they've had less relevant. He's played an important part in her life, in letting her become a real person. She'll realise that, and get over him. She knows Naruto and Sakura are good for each other too, she won't interfere if something happens. Hinata won't become a lonely spinster living in memory of an unrequited love, don't worry about that.
NaruHina & SakuSasu are supposed to be examples of girls falling for someone without real reason, from what I've seen. So that when they grow older, they're able to realise that, and become more mature because of it.
