Whoever made the decision to go with NH/SS need to be called out so that they don't do the same in other franchises.
 
Since the ending, it is very obvious more than ever that Hinata and NH just doesn't sell. So, there's really no strong justification to make it canon other than appeasing minor fans and minor voices in the production department. It purely is, a bad business decision.
 
The story is not structured to support NH/SS until the last minute pivot. People complained the lack of development to make it canon and the foundation for its subsequent Buruto continuation. To build a continuation series, you'd need a strong foundation. The elements that support strong foundation is a good storytelling and a loyal fanbase. Both of which, Kishimoto removed --by all means, NS is just a side effect of a good storytelling about growth, sacrifice and achievements. It has the solid foundation that even if the series is to continue, it will at least be in a better position.
 
Someone made online recap on Boruto sales. It's not doing great (roughly 10% per volume of what Naruto used to sold in the past, even during its non-peak).

Naa I want Hinata to go all murder happy because Naruto didnt give her the D just like what happened in this past week of Game of thrones.

 

So like AU Hinata from Road to Ninja but MUCH WORSE in that she actually kills people :zaru:

With Naruto and Sakura, everything was so......natural. There was no forced cringing romantic moments to beat the audience over the heads that these two are a couple, they just interacted with each other in a comfortable non-awkward yet still intimate manner. They weren't showcasing how much they DESERVE to be in love with each other like some prize, they showed the organic and realistic steps in falling in love. That is what made them so convincing. they have shown time and again that they are each other's emotional pillar and comfort the other during tough times. Yet they show to have a healthy and and normal social life and have fleshed out personality even without the other around, that what makes them such a wonderful couple. Yet all of that was ignored for %#$^ing FAN SERVICE and WISH FULFILLMENT :superior:

Yeah it's whatever to me as long as he doesn't screw up character development like with Naruto. Anyway, are there any actual sci-fi elements incorporated at the moment?

It was somewhat foreshadowed admittedly but agreed none the less. I actually want to see what chemistry the two had before they married and had Soma. And I wonder what happened to the grandfather after the mother's passing? I hope these details get delved into more at least. I'm not bothering with the Asahi drivel. That is the least interesting aspect of the series thus far. Even blander and more cringing to read than the Central arc.
