Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 615 Discussion and 616 Predictions
First post! Yay me!
I really liked this chapter. It was emotional and it felt very real to me. I do have a thing for Hinata love the character dont really care that much if she ends up with Naruto but I do love that It's her time to shine.
To all the people thinking the Naruhina is sudden, you have to also consider these facts.
*Naruto hasn't said or done anything about Hinatas confession He's been busy but that doesn't mean he hasn't had time to think about it.
* Remember his reaction when he thought Hinata got killed? He DOES have really strong feelings for her it's not confirmed he loves her in THAT way, but he cares very much about her.
*What we really see isn't a confession it's two people facing something horrible together in losing someone they care about and then helping eachother to stand strong in an extreme situation. It does hint the author wants things to go that way but this is not a love confession, at least not as far as I can tell.
*If he do love her, he already knows where she stands in the matter. And even though a battlefield with the worlds end at stake is a strange location, this girl just saved his ass from f****** up everything he worked so hard for, his dead masters legacy and his parents legacy not to mention everything he himself used to stand for. If he do love her that act alone, her standing up towards his own stupidity might have been what pushed him over the edge and made him fully realize it. Why then wouldn´t he embrace it?
About Hinata standing up for her self.
Hinata has allways looked up to Naruto, she's seen in him everything she wished she had in herself. Confidence and determination. Naruto is strong like her father and kind like her mother, as she would put it herself. Also even though being very shy around Naruto, she herself has changed alot and even though she might not have learned confidence and maybe until now even strength. She has learned determination. From Naruto. She's watched from afar as he has faced impossible odds and gone from being Konohas laughing material to becoming perhaps the greatest hero the village will ever have. This is what made her strive to change.
But you all already know this. In this situation however the roles are reversed. For a moment when Naruto reaches out against Obito and his empty words for an easy way out, she can see herself, she can see doubt and uncertainty, feelings she knows very well. And what did Naruto do then? He slaped her in the face (metaphoricly) and told her to stand up and fight. If anyone would know what to say in this situation it's Hinata cause she has been watching him and this is what Naruto would do himself. She is willing to die for him, that was what she confessed. To save his life do you really think she would remain unable to act due to shyness? How much sense would that make?
