None Because at this point NH and SS are unavoidable Naruto does not love Sakura anymore and Sasuke loves Sakura.
That alone shows you that these people already fabricated their view point an nothing with change that.
Today I even got a neg from a NH fan asking me why I'm so blind and cannot see that all the development in the Manga are leading to NH pairing, she even said that I'm delusional just like all the other NS fans.
So with this mentality that almost every NH/SS fans seems to have adopted, do you really believe the movie will have any effect on them?
True, its not likely to change any of those fans' minds, but I was referring to the less zealous NH/SS fans, or some of the neutral fans. But then, its just fan serivce anyway.
And yes, that is exactly why I haven't gotten involved in that thread, or the other pairing threads currently ongoing in the HoU. At this point, everyone is just repeating stuff over and over. The other side believes what they believe, they see the manga in a completely different way than we do, and even if we back up every single statement we make with manga panels, they still won't agree with us because they interpret those panels differently than we do.
So to me, there isn't any point in even trying to argue. It's just going to go nowhere, and I know I'm just going to end up frustrated.
Sorry about the neg though
No Paptala, he/she was the one who created the art, the person say that the art was originally about NS, but since he does not like the pairing and he thinks it will look better with NH and SS he decided to make it. Read the comments and you will see how many SS/NH fans called him out and he still defended his art, the user was even threatened to be reported for changing and original NS art to NH and SS, but his/her reply was that he doesn't think is fair for NS to have something nice but not his/her OTP.
Double edit, it seems that he remove all the comments, he/she was was being bombarded by a lot of NS fans and some few NH fns calling him/her stupid.
Yeah, I wasn't sure b/c I didn't see any of the comments given that they had all been disabled. I'll take your word for it then.
Well sure, the save wasn't completely romance but it was definitely a strong point or at least that's how a lot of people made out to be. That double page was so great and the detail was really good on the scene. Sakura looked like she lost all hopes, that is until Naruto saves her and Sakura was the only one saying his name out loud. The save is still something that needs to be addressed by the mangaka. In this case, Kishi made it big that it's nice to many. Stuff like that makes the fans squeal. Plus, if you want to taunt, not that you should, you can always brag that Naruto did a bridal save to Sakura only. Hinata didn't get one and pretty sure she won't. She didn't even give him a hug. So yeah, not that much progress.
True, it was certainly emphasized quite a bit, given its 2 page spread and Sakura's shocked expression and saying his name. NS moments all together just top the NH moments, imo. The macrostory favors NaruSaku by far.
Of course, Sasuke doesn't have romantic feeling for Sakura. If anything, he could have at least be jealous of Naruto, especially at that moment where he told her about Naruto saving Sakura. Again, there's nothing. I don't know if this way anything, but if Sasuke admitted that Naruto is his best friend, then shouldn't that kind of vaguely tells us the level of friendship with Sakura. I don't know if you want to answer, but do so. I won't change topic.
Yeah, there's certainly nothing to suggest that Sasuke felt anything more than friendship for Sakura. He wasn't in denial or shy about what he felt - he straight up told Naruto that he considered him his best friend, and told him during the Gaara fight that he considered Naruto and Sakura his precious people. He had Sakura's attention all to himself after his supposed "jealously" moment, and he smacked the apples out of her hand. When Sakura was confessing to Sasuke, he was thinking of Team 7 (as was she). After Sasuke left, he never once thought of her individually, and she never once was able to reach him on an emotional level unlike Naruto was.
Further, Orochimaru stated in part one that it was Naruto that was changing Sasuke's heart, not Sakura.
There's just nothing really there, that I can recall at least, to suggest that Sasuke ever thought of Sakura as more than a teammate and a friend. I think Kishi's portrayal of Sasuke in RtN emphasizes that he simply does not have any more genuine romantic feelings for Sakura than he does for his other fangirls.
I would like to see the new feelings from people after seeing the movie. I know I will be happy for more than one things, especially Sakura. There will be haters still, but it would be nice for someone to change their view on character(s). Who knows, but I am happy.
It would certainly be nice to see some positive change in attitude from the fans once the movie actually airs, for sure. :-)
