So today, I was re-reading SS/NH moments in the manga and I noticed that Naruto seems to show a more tender and gentle attitude towards Hinata and Sasuke a more caring attitude towards Sakura.
Naruto with other people is so hyperactive and confident, but with Hinata he shows the side of him that doubts himself at times, and Hinata has always been there to bring him up.
Sasuke, a character that’s stoic and collected, has shown his fears and weakest moments around Sakura. And Sakura has always been there to support him and Sasuke has never denied or neglected her support in any moment.
Another point I also wanted to mention is that the love Hinata and Sakura have for the one they love has always made them stronger, has made them want to be strong enough to be able to protect them. I’m not saying that their development centers around just one person, but didn’t Naruto himself say: “Real strength is not what you have when fighting for only yourself. When you have something special to protect then can you become truly strong.”
I don’t know if I make sense, but I hope I got my point across and some of you understood what I was trying to say haha x: I just honestly feel that these two pairing complete each other, and maybe that’s what Kishimoto intended to do. When you love someone, that person brings out a side of you that you never knew you had, that’s how I see it.
