Most of NaruSaku is not exactly facts, but uber mega strong hints that even a blind person can see.
The problem isn't facts, the problem is that some fans ignore the mangaka's intentions and twist it to suit them best.Hint:
Naruto has and always will love Sakura.Fact with that hint:
Naruto admitted he still loves Sakura and he can't confess because of the promise he made to her had yet to be fulfilled.Hint:
Sakura cares for Naruto more than Sasuke.Fact with that hint:
She went to kill Sasuke to make Naruto break that promise to her because it did nothing but hurt Naruto in the end. She was willing to have Naruto hate her forever, just as long as he wasn't hurting anymore because of the promise. She chose to KILL Sasuke to make Naruto happy.Hint:
Naruto and Sakura's feelings are not platonic for each other.Fact with that hint:
Naruto has tried to peek in on Sakura on multiple occasions. Naruto admitted to Sai that he loves Sakura, romantically. Sakura asked Naruto when they first met how she looks with a blush. She hugged Naruto in what is seen as a romantic by all spectators. Other small hints like feeding him when he was having trouble and whatnot also clue into her evolving feelings. -If you think that is platonic, then incest must be more common in the world than I thought-Hint:
Sasuke says repeatedly he wants to break the bonds with the leaf and he does not care anymore. He has never truly addressed Sakura's feelings and has no romantic feelings for Sakura whatsoever.Fact with that hint:
He has tried to kill his old team on multiple occasions in bouts of insanity. Hint:
Hinata doesn't have as much faith in Naruto's abilities and strength as Sakura.Fact with that hint:
Hinata slightly panicked when Naruto got in a fight with Tobi, but Sakura told her to relax, Naruto was fine. Hint:
Kushina said "Find a girl more like me, not a weird one"Fact with that hint:
When Naruto met Hinata, he called her weird. Being weird is not a bad thing, but he thinks she is. Sakura and Kushina have many similarities. (tsundere, childhood insecurities, similar thoughts on two certain blonds when they were young) Hinata's only similarity is their longish hair. "But they both LOVE Naruto". Well alright, then I suppose Hinata loves Naruto in a motherly way, just like Kushina.
Sometimes, there are even hints that can be interpreted as SasuSaku. Like Sakura's ambiguous feelings -though I believe she currently has feelings for both Naruto and Sasuke at this time-, Sasuke's ever hinted at return, Sakura's super desperate confession when she was young, things like that. Probably with SasuSaku as I said before is Sasuke's asexual behavior and his threads and attempts to kill Sakura along with everyone else on multiple occasions.
But what hints are there for NaruHina for example? I guess her confession is included of course, but it still hasn't technically been addressed. Naruto seems to have subtly brushed it off. They don't have any other interactions, she faints whenever she see's him in a normal setting. There was that stuff from part 1, and Naruto kept his promise to beat and fix Neji. But what else is there really?
I see that "I'll fix your clan!" is used a a lot in NaruHina debates, but assuming that Naruto meant he'd marry into the Hyuuga family and change all their laws is ludicrous. That's as bad as assuming Sasuke meant right then and there he'd start having crazy sex to revive his clan when he was 12. They were 12, yes, Naruto's a pervert, but even he isn't thinking that far.
He was most likely thinking along the lines of becoming Hokage, forcing people to recognize him, and then forcing her clan to change their ways. Much more viable don't you think?
So again, the problem isn't exactly the facts. It's just... no one is reading between the lines. Even if they do, they ignore the parts that don't suit them as if they don't exist and insist that whatever negative or non-existent hints they have much more weight than others.
We don't necessarily have more facts, we have more obvious, strong, and constant hints.
