I've kind of always figured Naruto would be the one to die. You know, like Jiraiya and Asuma — in a meaningful, symbolic, loss-of-master-now-Boruto-has-to-step-up sort of way. Then Hinata would remain the sympathetic, super passive, long-suffering love interest that she is.

 

Cause if Hinata dies, then it makes Naruto look bad/weak. Not that it matters now though - lol.

Cause if Hinata dies, then it makes Naruto look even worse bad/weak. Not that it matters now though - lol.

Fixed

Yes if Hinata died and Naruto lived ... ooooohhhhh i can already imagine her fanatic will swarm him with lot's of curse and insult. Naruto can't protect his family , Naruto is incompetent husband , Naruto not only fail as father because he neglect his kids but fail as husband and man as well for letting the most precious female on earth died , etc. And if the other way around , Hinata lived and Naruto died : Hinata has done well as a wife , there's nothing she can do about it , shes not strong enough to protect his beloved husband it can't be help and it's understandable , and Naruto will be forgotten like fart .... :lmao:

An out of control man needs a strong woman to control him.
And even a violent woman will become soft and tender to the man she love.

It makes me wonder if NaruSaku happened, would the ending have seen the backlash it did? I think so on everything except the couples.

Probably not. At least NaruSaku did not need a RETCON nuking the entire story to make them happen

I don't think it would save it, but it would have solved a lot of problems.

Ideally I thought that the entire cast of K9 would survive in the end, happily celebrating their own accomplishments together. Maybe a third part showing the ropes of their lives and careers.

 

But yeah on the extreme end if someone were to get killed off/go missing for a while, it would have to be one or two of the members of Team 7. It would greatly challenge their goals, motives, and characters even, in a way that no secondary character could move them to do so. Endless outcomes to consider had that happened, and I would've definitely stuck around to see that instead of Burrito's Cashgrab Crusade.

 

I was so betting on Sasuke biting the dust though, for real. That guy has flirted with death so many times, done so many bad deeds... like it's a fact that him and plot armor are more intimate with each other than him and Sakura...

:/ Not even Neji's death prompted major change with any facet of her character, other than her relationship status. There was no clarity on her ambitions thereafter and her personality remained the same, so I don't think she would be that much different if Naruto did die while married to her.

While I don't think it would have the extreme shipping backlash, I think the double standard would still have been loud and and active.

 

Because Naruto's with Hinata, all those fans have happily forgotten the fact that Naruto didn't succeed at ANY of his goals. It feels like a happy ending to them, even though it really isn't for the characters.

 

But if he were with Sakura, then all Naruto's failures and shortcomings would just be added to the reasons why Sakura is so wrong for him. Basically, she would be getting blamed for Naruto's failure to bring Sasuke home, failure to see any real punishment and failure to become Kage within the space of the manga. And any of the dumb things Naruto did aftwerwards (with Hinata and Boruto), would obviously be all Sakura's fault because she's a terrible wife/mother/human/shinobi/etc. Then NH fans would just hate Sakura more, imagining how perfect life would have been with an NaruHina ending. I just don't see a way that Sakura wins. Which sucks.

 

And yeah - the fact that they had to retcon a whole series makes it glaringly obvious how the story should have ended.

 

 

Ideally I thought that the entire cast of K9 would survive in the end, happily celebrating their own accomplishments together. Maybe a third part showing the ropes of their lives and careers.

 

But yeah on the extreme end if someone were to get killed off/go missing for a while, it would have to be one or two of the members of Team 7.

I agree - I always though it would be Sasuke who would die. Or at the very least become the new 'Jiraiya' traveling monk figure — a powerful, fascinating old friend of theirs whose visits to Konoha always meant bad news. But one who lives so far outside of the realm of Konoha's day-to-day that he's nearly forgotten about for half the series. Literally, like Jiraiya. And which is practically the same as being dead - lol.

 

And yes, you point out just more reasons why Hinata is a waste of space in the story, at NO POINT does she evolve. Not even the death of her beloved cousin could make her change. She doesn't rise up and fill the space left by him in their clan. Her only ambition is to stand beside Naruto and hold his hand. Which is the same as it was before Neji died. 

 

I know people say she had a character evolution in part one, where she stood up to Neji and fought him, all because Naruto inspired her. And yes, it's true. She did rise up there. But I'm not sure it took. Because in the end, she is still completely focused on Naruto. She can't see or do anything for anyone else. Sakura told her to focus on the enemy...but in the end, we know that Hinata never does. So is it a valid character evolution if the character doesn't change in the end?

 

Depressingly, I feel sorta the same way about Sakura. Except where Hinata never truly evolved, I feel like Sakura's evolution was taken away from her. She ended up with Sasuke, in spite of everything she said, did or felt for Naruto.
