Alrighty guys, here is an excellent, detailed description I found of why the Naruto/Sakura pairing is most likely going to happen. I'd trust this "rant", since it is based of the real Japanese manga and not the lame-o Americanized translation. Which blows. Well, here it is. Sakura/Sasuke shippers, try and argue yourselves out of this hole. Heres a rant about NaruSaku ^^ events are in cronological order..somewhat

In the beginning, Sakura hated Naruto, like when Kakashi interviewed them. Kakashi: And what do you hate? Sakura: Naruto! She thought, for the most part, Naruto was annoying. And yet, already in the beginning, we see that her dream came true, from Narutos words. When he transformed into Sasuke, he said the EXACT words Sakura wanted to hear. You sure have a large, charming forehead. Makes me want to kiss it...

All I want... is for you to acknowledge me, This sentence made Naruto realise why he liked Sakura soo much, they both wanted acknowledgement. Really, Narutos plan backfired, and basically made Sakura like Sasuke even more, because of his words. When the real Sasuke showed up however, he just hurt sakura more-so.

Of course, all the scenes where Sakura begins to see Naruto in a better aspect. During the bell test, when Naruto suprises Kakashi by using the kage-bunshin no jutsu to capture him, Sakura blushes fiercely and says Wow Naruto, youre pretty good!

After Zabuza knocked off Narutos headband, he got it back, even against a Jounin-level ninja like Zabuza. Sakura then proceeds to say: Whats this feeling...? Naruto is so...

Everyone remembers the chuunin exam, and when that 10th question arose, she acted on Narutos half. But that silly dream of yours... I dont want to see it crushed. Not even concerning Sasukes feelings about passing, she proceeds to raise her hand so Naruto could continue his dream.

When the chuunin exam reached stage 2. Sasuke was forced into a desperate situation. Against Orochimaru. Sasuke freezes up and cannot continue to fight. After Naruto saves Sasuke from certain death, he is then thrown off the trees, where Sakura saves him. She then yells at Sasuke: He may be an idiot, but at least hes not a coward like you!

During the preliminaries, Sakura was overtaken by Ino. She was about to give up, until Naruto shouted at her to never give up. Its because of this Sakura is able to throw Inos mind out of her, and continue enough to at least tie the match. After, she thanks him.

During Narutos fight with Kiba, Naruto says some things about his way of the ninja, sakura then says: I used to make fun of those words, but I was wrong.Even more so, she says: Naruto... Tell everyone... then Naruto finished her sentence, which is again the EXACT same thing she was thinking, by saying Dont underestimate me!.

When Sakura was seated in the arena for the third part, she says: Im kind of jealous of you. When I watch you fight, I feel like I have to do my best, and that is an incredible thing, However, Sakura shows no sign of interest in Sasuke when he fights, where-as she did when Naruto fought. She was only worried that Sasuke wouldnt show up, and she would think the same thing if Naruto wasnt, if not more-so.

During the Gaara fight, Sakuras peril drove Naruto to extract all sorts of chakra to save her. Sakura-chan....I will save Sakura-chan! When he was getting thrown around, one glance at Sakura gave him enough strength to begin fighting again. Afterwards, when Sasuke told her it was Naruto who saved her, she smiled, having no doubts. She was happy it was him.

Right before Sasuke left the village, Sakura asked Naruto out on a date. Of course it isnt a romantic one, but back in the beginning, she would have thought of this interaction to be taboo. Instead, she could have just told him the problem. During the date, the Ichiraku ramen guy (forgot his name) praised Naruto for bringing his girlfriend on a date. Naruto imminently shot up saying he wasnt her boyfriend, in caution not to get hurt. But instead, Sakura did nothing. This worried Naruto, knowing it wasnt her usual self. Naruto then assures Sakura that Sasuke wouldnt do anything bad, because hes strong, this brings a smile to her face.

Later on, Sakura went to see the 5 genins off, after she got throughly shot down by Sasuke. After seeing Sakura pained, he smiles, in an attempt to make her feel better, saying he knows her pain, a pain where you love someone who doesnt love you back in the same way. After Naruto said this, she instantly had a flashback of chapter 3, where she realized how she was so wrong about Naruto, this then changes her thoughts of Naruto completely. Thank you! she said honestly. Since Naruto was a very special person to her now. After that, Naruto made a promise that he would bring back Sasuke FOR Sakura, because he loved her enough that he would sacrifice himself for her. He didnt want her to feel the pain he had experienced. He really wanted her to be happy.

In episode 135, after Naruto returned empty-handed, Sakura, whose view of Naruto had completely changed, assured him that nothing was wrong, so as to help keep Naruto from breaking down. She wanted him to stop then and there, SACRIFICING her happiness (giving up hope on Sasukes retrieval) so Naruto could be happy. Yet, Naruto said he would never back down. Sakura then grasps her chest, thanking Naruto again, for what hes trying to do. Then, because of Naruto, she asked Tsunade to make her an apprentice, and vowed that next time, they both would go together! At least this time, Sakura could watch out for Naruto.

Finally, after two and a half years, Naruto returned home with Jiraiya. Sakura is shocked to see him and instantly asks: How do I look? Have I become more womanly? She wants HIS opinion of how SHE looks! Afterwards, when Naruto disregards Konohamarus request of performing the sexy no jutsu. She admired Naruto for it, thinking: More than just his height had grown........ Naruto, youve become an excellent man. After, Naruto smiles and says he has a new and improved ultra-perverted jutsu, while Sakura was still caught up in the moment, says Yeah, your new ultra-perverted jutsu..After returning to her senses, she punches Naruto like old times and says: Where the hell do you expect me to put the way I felt about you earlier?! As said in Japanese for romantic feelings.

Naruto then asks Sakura on a date, except this time, she accepts! However this time, they dont have any important matters to discuss. And of course Naruto has to pay, when someone asks someone on a date, the one who asks is prompted to pay.

Now, Sakura learns of Naruto and everything he had gone through/ is going through. She now states that she�ll save both of them, meaning if they rescue Sasuke, she would do anything in her power to help him against Akatsuki. Sakura then finds out about the Kyuubi, she cries in sympathy for him. Naruto, thinking that she was worried about Gaara, tells her that everything will be alright, again, not wanting her to worry. Naruto says: Dont worry, Ill save Gaara! Sakura replies by saying: I... Naruto... its you that Im- and was cut off then and there from Naruto, who said in response: Lets hurry! A moment where something related to Sakuras feelings were cut off, some Kishi doesnt want us to know yet.

Now we have a new teammate, his name is Sai. Sai had been reading on emotions and remarked about Sakuras emotions towards Naruto. He says: Sakura-san, its times like this that... Hmm... How should I put it... Youre very nice to Naruto-kun. Where those feelings come from is something I dont understand, but in a book, it said this- and once again, was cut off, more feelings for Sakura that are yet to be revealed. Naruto cut her off by saying: Everyone, its time to go.

During the Heaven and Earth bridge arc, Naruto goes into his KN4 form, which he cannot control yet. He goes into this form after hearing Orochimaru badmouth Sasuke. Sakura was worried about him, a guilt trip ran down her spine as she saw Naruto trying even harder than before, just to get Sasuke back. She really didnt want to see Naruto like this, and after Kabuto made a smart-ass remark about Naruto, Her emotions ran free as she recalled the Naruto who promised to bring Sasuke back. Crying as hard as she was, she ran in to try and calm Naruto down, just like she attempted to do to Sasuke in the FoD. Unknown about what that form could cause to Naruto. She tried to tell him things didnt have to be like this, but the sheer force of the Kyuubi knocked her away.

After Orochimaru retreated, Yamato sealed the Kyuubi. Sakura, seeing this technique, wanted to learn how to use the technique so she could help Naruto survive. After Yamato assured her she couldnt, she said: Its always like this... The things I can do for Naruto are so small.But, even though Yamato had Naruto in a stable condition, she still wanted to help him, in any way possible. Because Naruto had always helped her. She wanted to help Naruto too. Finally, after watching Sakuras emotions run, Yamato says: Its not a matter of big or small. Whats important is the strength of feelings you have for Naruto. Sakura, I can tell by looking at you. In reality, you- and once again, the third time, he was cut off by Naruto. More of Sakuras feelings toward Naruto yet to be released.

And of course, in chapter 319, Sakura takes a look at the picture of team 7, and cries. After the tear drop falls, we see Naruto staring at the sky, who said: Cool, a shooting star! Which then he flashbacked about Sasuke. Another scene that shows Naruto and Sakura are perfectly in synch. Naruto then proceeds to split the waterfall in half, which seemed impossible before.

I can assure you, that Hinata has not had NEARLY as much development as this. If you want to throw away all these reaction and emotions for NaruHina, I just cant understand why. And this is why I like NaruSaku, because they are perfect for each other, and have grown to understand each other

anyways, thats my rant about NaruSaku ^^.

I totally agree with this ! Beside, this is shounen manga, when the main character have something that he wants, he will reach it . And if NARUTO is shoujo manga, I believe the main character will be Sakura, not Hinata

Some people still out there want Sakura to die mostly Hinata fans, claiming she is useless, not only do these people not understand her role as a medic ninja (to dodge and stay alive only to fight as she must or when its needed) these people do not understand one very important aspect: Sakura is a main character she is part of the team 7 conflict which escalated into the war. To kill her would bring so much build up away, it would be a waste.

Naruto and Sakura have been through trail after trail, growing and reflecting off one another. Not to rant on hinata fans but hinata could have died at anytime and the story would still continue without much impact aside from naruto dealing with the loss of a friend.

All I'm saying at this point is, well Kishi could have made Kushina a shy and low-esteemed girl but she had gone through so much of the stuff Sakura did (feature they hated, similar color hair, hating the guy that liked them etc) not to mention there was just a movie focusing mainly on Naruto and Sakura.

Also we know Naruto has one major trait aside from his willpower, his track record of breaking cycles. He brought hope to the land of waves, told Neji life is what you make in it, proved to Tsunade that people still believe in hope, even managed to convince Nagato of peace. Not to mention its given that he will bring resolution to the conflict with the jinchurki, Sasuke, and even succeed where it seems obito and Jiraya failed. Remember Naruto had nothing and was cursed from the start yet he overcame it all. Plus he is a new age minato, so due to the similar events Kushia had with Minato, I can only think of one girl who has interacted with naruto like that, Sakura.

Geez, I'm betting by wars end, Sakura will have surpassed Tsunade and realize the difference between her ideal of a guy and what love really is. Naruto knows his love for Sakura, its because he likes everything about her and still knows she has flaws. He knows she can take care of herself but still does not want to see her hurt just like Sakura does not want Naruto to do everything himself.

Lets see where the story goes, all I know is the similarites at this point are too good to just dump on Naruto ending up with another girl and just remember that cycle breaking streak naruto has. If he can succeed in convincing a master criminal about the ways of peace and even get Kurama to help him, I bet he can do the same with Sakura.

I've always been a NARUSAKU fan.

Sometimes I find another pairing picture and put them in my faves, but mostly because of the good art style some have.

But I'm a major NARUSAKU fan!

Well, of course. This is a manga. Coincidences are required to go on with the story.

Of course, all the scenes where Sakura begins to see Naruto in a better aspect. During the bell test, when Naruto suprises Kakashi by using the kage-bunshin no jutsu to capture him, Sakura blushes fiercely and says Wow Naruto, youre pretty good!
She blushes out of embarrassment at the fact that she is forced to admit that Naruto is a good ninja, when before, she was so adamant about the fact that he was a loser.

Everyone remembers the chuunin exam, and when that 10th question arose, she acted on Narutos half. But that silly dream of yours... I dont want to see it crushed. Not even concerning Sasukes feelings about passing, she proceeds to raise her hand so Naruto could continue his dream.
Because it is in Sakura's nature to be caring, and compassionate.

When the chuunin exam reached stage 2. Sasuke was forced into a desperate situation. Against Orochimaru. Sasuke freezes up and cannot continue to fight. After Naruto saves Sasuke from certain death, he is then thrown off the trees, where Sakura saves him. She then yells at Sasuke: He may be an idiot, but at least hes not a coward like you!

And that is proof of NaruSaku...how? Sakura realizes her useless behavior, and that is her turning point, she puts her feelings aside and speaks the truth.

During the preliminaries, Sakura was overtaken by Ino. She was about to give up, until Naruto shouted at her to never give up. Its because of this Sakura is able to throw Inos mind out of her, and continue enough to at least tie the match. After, she thanks him.
Because by now, they are friends, and friends support each other.

During Narutos fight with Kiba, Naruto says some things about his way of the ninja, sakura then says: I used to make fun of those words, but I was wrong.Even more so, she says: Naruto... Tell everyone... then Naruto finished her sentence, which is again the EXACT same thing she was thinking, by saying Dont underestimate me!.
Again, being on the same wavelength does not equal to undying soulmate love.

During the Gaara fight, Sakuras peril drove Naruto to extract all sorts of chakra to save her. Sakura-chan....I will save Sakura-chan! When he was getting thrown around, one glance at Sakura gave him enough strength to begin fighting again. Afterwards, when Sasuke told her it was Naruto who saved her, she smiled, having no doubts. She was happy it was him.
Like she wouldn't have been happier that it wasn't Sasuke.

Right before Sasuke left the village, Sakura asked Naruto out on a date. Of course it isnt a romantic one, but back in the beginning, she would have thought of this interaction to be taboo. Instead, she could have just told him the problem. During the date, the Ichiraku ramen guy (forgot his name) praised Naruto for bringing his girlfriend on a date. Naruto imminently shot up saying he wasnt her boyfriend, in caution not to get hurt. But instead, Sakura did nothing. This worried Naruto, knowing it wasnt her usual self. Naruto then assures Sakura that Sasuke wouldnt do anything bad, because hes strong, this brings a smile to her face.
BECAUSE THEY ARE FRIENDS AND FRIENDS SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

Later on, Sakura went to see the 5 genins off, after she got throughly shot down by Sasuke. After seeing Sakura pained, he smiles, in an attempt to make her feel better, saying he knows her pain, a pain where you love someone who doesnt love you back in the same way. After Naruto said this, she instantly had a flashback of chapter 3, where she realized how she was so wrong about Naruto, this then changes her thoughts of Naruto completely. Thank you! she said honestly. Since Naruto was a very special person to her now. After that, Naruto made a promise that he would bring back Sasuke FOR Sakura, because he loved her enough that he would sacrifice himself for her. He didnt want her to feel the pain he had experienced. He really wanted her to be happy.
So we all know Naruto loves Sakura. But this scene doesn't show Sakura's feelings. Sorry, not counting.

In episode 135, after Naruto returned empty-handed, Sakura, whose view of Naruto had completely changed, assured him that nothing was wrong, so as to help keep Naruto from breaking down. She wanted him to stop then and there, SACRIFICING her happiness (giving up hope on Sasukes retrieval) so Naruto could be happy. Yet, Naruto said he would never back down. Sakura then grasps her chest, thanking Naruto again, for what hes trying to do. Then, because of Naruto, she asked Tsunade to make her an apprentice, and vowed that next time, they both would go together! At least this time, Sakura could watch out for Naruto.
Because he's her FRIEND and she doesn't want him to get hurt. She has faith in Sasuke, she is firm in her belief that he would come back, and she doesn't want Naruto to be hurt again.

Finally, after two and a half years, Naruto returned home with Jiraiya. Sakura is shocked to see him and instantly asks: How do I look? Have I become more womanly? She wants HIS opinion of how SHE looks! Afterwards, when Naruto disregards Konohamarus request of performing the sexy no jutsu. She admired Naruto for it, thinking: More than just his height had grown........ Naruto, youve become an excellent man. After, Naruto smiles and says he has a new and improved ultra-perverted jutsu, while Sakura was still caught up in the moment, says Yeah, your new ultra-perverted jutsu..After returning to her senses, she punches Naruto like old times and says: Where the hell do you expect me to put the way I felt about you earlier?! As said in Japanese for romantic feelings.

She wants his opinion because he didn't see her change GRADUALLY, like everyone else did. He wasn't THERE so she wants to know, because they're seeing each other after 2 years. She's caught up in the moment because her silly, idiotic friend is mature (so she thinks). And actually, she said 'you haven't changed at all'. Not that romantic thing you said up there.

Naruto then asks Sakura on a date, except this time, she accepts! However this time, they dont have any important matters to discuss. And of course Naruto has to pay, when someone asks someone on a date, the one who asks is prompted to pay.
She knows Naruto is always broke, so there's no chance that she would have to go on a date with him.

During the Heaven and Earth bridge arc, Naruto goes into his KN4 form, which he cannot control yet. He goes into this form after hearing Orochimaru badmouth Sasuke. Sakura was worried about him, a guilt trip ran down her spine as she saw Naruto trying even harder than before, just to get Sasuke back. She really didnt want to see Naruto like this, and after Kabuto made a smart-ass remark about Naruto, Her emotions ran free as she recalled the Naruto who promised to bring Sasuke back.

She tried to tell him things didnt have to be like this, but the sheer force of the Kyuubi knocked her away.
BECAUSE FOR FUCK'S SAKE, THEY ARE FRIENDS. FRIENDS CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER.

And of course, in chapter 319, Sakura takes a look at the picture of team 7, and cries. After the tear drop falls, we see Naruto staring at the sky, who said: Cool, a shooting star! Which then he flashbacked about Sasuke. Another scene that shows Naruto and Sakura are perfectly in synch. Naruto then proceeds to split the waterfall in half, which seemed impossible before.
Because, they are both facing the same pain, of losing a friend and teammate, of losing a friend, a loved one. And their ambition is to bring him back, no matter what. Everyone knows Naruto loves Sakura. He wants to be strong so he can bring Sasuke back to make her happy. So he is able to split the waterfall. (This scene actually also indicates that even NARUTO knows that Sakura loves Sasuke, for real. See chapter 467, he tells her she's lying when she says she loves him. Because he knows she doesn't really.)

So i agree with you on the fact that NaruHina is bullshit, and yes, I do love NaruSaku, but um, no, they're not perfect for each other.
Kishimoto said in an interview that Sasuke considered Sakura as a light in his world of darkness ( i dont remember which year that was) but in 2010 interview, he said that Sakura loves Sasuke. Sorry to burst your bubble, but this argument isn't really valid. It's just pointless.

"When the chuunin exam reached stage 2. Sasuke was forced into a desperate situation. Against Orochimaru. Sasuke freezes up and cannot continue to fight. After Naruto saves Sasuke from certain death, he is then thrown off the trees, where Sakura saves him. She then yells at Sasuke: He may be an idiot, but at least hes not a coward like you!"
your response to this was correct, this wasn't NaruSaku proof at all, it was more like her trying to pump him up to fight or something.

"During the Gaara fight, Sakuras peril drove Naruto to extract all sorts of chakra to save her. Sakura-chan....I will save Sakura-chan! When he was getting thrown around, one glance at Sakura gave him enough strength to begin fighting again. Afterwards, when Sasuke told her it was Naruto who saved her, she smiled, having no doubts. She was happy it was him."
Yeah she would have been happier if it was Sasuke, and this last part "having no doubts. She was happy it was him." was kinda dumb I'll admit. But fact is, it was Naruto and this was HUGE for NaruSaku, Sakura saying his name as she was unconscious and Naruto at same time vowing to save her even if it kills him, and then does save her. your response was correct for the "having-him" answer, but not for the rest of the actual argument.

Overall, your responses to the rest were not valid. They are both on their journey together to bring Sasuke back. Sakura definitely showed feelings at the bridge. Their little date wasn't planned to be romantic by Sakura, but by Naruto it was, nothing to do with money. As for her looks after two in a half years, that is part of it, but she also wants his opinion because she knows how he feels about her (well she thinks he likes her only, but he LOVES her). She later does acknowledge that he's grown up a little -_-. Just a lot of your responses weren't valid to be countered to these signs of NaruSaku.

Well duh, cause SasuSaku and NaruSaku have equal chances of happening, and the fans seem to forget that. I defend Sasusaku against NaruSaku and NaruSaku against SasuSaku. Big deal
