I haven’t been in the
Especially when debating if
Along those same lines

- Why did
Well whatever the case, let’s get into it.
Here’s why it’s not even debatable, and why fans have selective memory.
Naruto Deserved Hinata More Than Sakura:
1. Hinata NEVER judged or put
Let’s compare Sakura Haruno.
From the beginning of
Sakura Haruno is one of those people. Iruka and Hinata are the “few” exceptions.
Sakura’s always seen putting
This is when Sakura is entitled.
After the scene where
She even goes as far to say
It’s not until Sasuke berates Sakura and says
That’s thanks to the fact that Sakura would jump off a bridge if Sasuke told her to at this point, so she follows his lead.
Let’s compare that to HInata, and how she treats
Hinata is a shy character, lacks elf confidence, and hesitates to either speak her mind or do what she wants to.
Either way, she always supports
Never has Hinata ever judged
Unlike Sakura, Hinata has empathy and goes out of her way to understand a person before judging them.
Same thing in school. Hinata understands
During the Chunin exams (paper exam) Hinata is wishing the best for
Feelings of negativity, malice, hate, disgust, or general disrespect never cross Hinata’s mind. And that’s why
Even sometime during Chunin exams (before or after, I forget which)
Hinata, despite being on a different team, goes out of her way to give
Sakura didn’t do a damn thing during this time.
Her mindset and behavior isn’t deserving of a guy like
2. Hinata NEVER tried to manipulate
Naruto for selfish reasons
Are we really just gonna ignore and pretend scenes like THIS never happened?
Sakura, whether as a child or a young
Naively, Sakura believes if she tells
Sakura plays on the fact that
The point here is: Sakura doesn’t deserve
Hinata would never even think of doing that to anyone, especially
3. Hinata ALWAYS went out of her way to help
Naruto in a fight
This image explains Sakura’s role in a lot of
Yes, there are times (more so in Shippuden) where she backed up
We see this in many fights like Zabusa and Haku, where Sasuke, Kakashi and
Sakura does nothing more than scream “Naruto” and that’s it.
Shes never put her LIFE on the line for
That privilege was given to Sasuke (mostly when he’s beaten to an inch of his life, of course).
Ignoring the war arc, Sakura’s never been that type of character.
That’s why she’s seen sulking about it. And only later wanted to help to get stronger and avoid being “weak” since
Compare that to Hinata.
In the Pain arc who was it who stood by
That’s right, it was Hinata. The one people love to hate for whatever reason.
Sakura was present during the Pain arc, but she “did as she was told” and stood by on the sidelines while
Only Hinata rushed in to do anything about it, regardless of how stupid it was.
It didn’t matter that she was too weak to make a difference, but what mattered was she cared enough to try.
Unlike Sakura who like a cheerleader from the sidelines chants and wishes for the best, without actually doing anything practical.
And again – during the war arc and Madara, Hinata stood by
They both held hands and she gave him assurance.
She wasn’t about to let
Proving yet again that Naruto deserved Hinata more than Sakura ever did.
It’s true that later on Sakura starts to understand
During the “forest of death” arc she also tries to protect
But if we’re comparing side by side from the very first episode, and how each character was from then till now, it’s obvious who deserved
Sakura constantly pushed
Hinata’s intentions have always been pure and she’s NEVER wavered, even if it meant putting her own life on the line (Pain).
Those are facts, not opinions, because that’s how it played out in the story.
