^^ Is not only because there are Sexy is because, with them you get that feeling of relief has a reader You know that they care for each other.

Sakura does not understand what she feels for the BAKA but she know is something special + him being the only one she really trust Naruto gives her cheerfulness, happiness and hope.

Naruto been the one that told Sakura what she always wanted to haer with the forehead complement + he likes her.

at the same time they are not being honest with the other party.

So you get that anxiety and desperation feelings because you know they care for each other, that something you don't get with the other couples they are too onesided.


Remember 296, 450 and the start of 469 teld me how did you really feel the 1st time you see those chapters.



I was really Happy and relief.

Well, I'm hoping ya'll are on topic because I am! (Shock Horror!) :O

I like NaruSaku because it's a really cool washing powder, oh wait that's "Vegeta"...

But for real? I find NaruSaku interesting... It gives a fresh outlook on an outdated pairing style :3

And it is brilliant story material that can counteract a writer's block for anyone! biggrin.gif

Well... Except me ¬_¬

why I personally support NaruSaku and not NaruHina is because I feel that it was way too easy for Hinata to get fan support, thus they want her to get with Naruto for her to be happy. I don't hate or even dislike Hinata, in fact I like her, but it was just too easy for her to gain the audience's sympathy (as demonstrated by her fight with Neji). With Sakura, she had to work to gain sympathy from the audience, and she's one of the characters with the most character development (it's just too bad so many people easily fall for Hinata while they ignore Sakura's character development and hate her).

Also, Naruto and her spend the most screen time together which has allowed their friendship to blossom whereas Hinata and Naruto share a significantly less amount of screen time. Plus, their personalities are more compatible than with Hinata and Naruto. People think opposites attract but if you ever take a basic psychology class, opposites don't attract... infatuation and lust maybe but not long-lasting love.

Alright, Alright, I'm gonna stop lurking now.

Why? Its a good developing relationship between two people who will do ANYTHING for one another.

Its a relationship that's been steadily working its way to the forefront since start of the series! It's like watching a real relationship in all honesty. Sakura doesn't immediately like Naruto, she has to grow into it- Like MOST people do.

She goes from Saying she hates Naruto, to admiring him- To be willing to Sacrifice her chances in the Chuunin Exams, to further his. She goes from Admiring him and using him as a support pillar to wanting to become a source of support, shelter, and protection for HIM.

A real relationship is about Give and take, sacrifice and compromise. I see that in Naruto and Sakura and it brings them to life. They don't always get along, they don't always agree with the others methods ( Post Confession...) But they ALWAYS have the others back.

Thats love. Having a row one minute, and being over it in the next.


She was willing to kill the person she supposedly loved for HIS Sake, and if that's not love I don't know what is.

You can love two people, but at the end of the day you will always choose one over the other and I think Sakura has made it perfectly clear who she's gonna choose if it gets down to the wire- No question.

It's got evidence out the Ying yang- Hints, and foreshadowing to boot! If it doesn't happen Kishimoto will be the most EPIC TROLL EVER. I will both hate him to the core of my very being and yet kind of respect him for the epicness of it all. (It would be heavily frowned upon however. Heavily.)

I think the best part about these two, is that they could not only be lovers- but best friends and that's the ideal type of romantic relationship. Not only where your lovers but friends too.


I can't express into words my love for this pairing because its continuously growing as the manga progresses.

So yep. There's my first post. narusakuct7.gif Live long Fellow Narusaku's.

I love NaruSaku, because they fit perfectly more than any pairing in ANY anime or manga. NaruSaku is just the best, because their relationship did a 160 degree turn. (They just need that 20 degrees and we'll all be happy happy.gif ) Plus they have the most screen time together than basically ANY other two characters, and besides Naruto and Sasuke, Naruto and Sakura's relationship is the most focused upon. So ya, it's so gonna happen. smile.gif

Posted 14 February 2012 - 03:44 AM

Well, first of all, I apologize if I'm bumping this topic. I think having it "pinned" means that I don't have to worry, but even so...

Second, I think it's fair that if I'm a NaruSaku fan, you know the reasons as to why I would love them to be a couple in the end.

Finally, what I will say could be very similar to other people's opinions for NaruSaku, though I believe I have a different approach. smile.gif
___

Well, before stating my reasons, I should say first that the base for all of them are my meaning of love, which can be summarized in this quote:

“Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.” (Erich Fromm)


Now then, what is necessary for someone to love another person? Mainly four things: Care, Responsibility, Respect and Knowledge. And another important factor for any relationship to develop is: Communication.


With all of this as a base, here are my reasons to be a NaruSaku fan:

-Knowledge: Even though at first, Naruto's feelings for Sakura could be considered a "childish crush", during the progress of the series, he has gotten to know her first-hand. He knows what she likes, what she dreams of, her abilities, and her weaknesses too. The image of a "perfect" Sakura is now replaced with the "real" Sakura, and his "crush" now changed to a decision: a decision to make her happy (the promise of a lifetime).

Sakura also has gotten to know Naruto first-hand. Her image of the "dork who wanted attention" (sorry if it sounds cruel) changed to the person who was determined to never give up and to be acknowledged as a friend. During the series, we've been witnesses of her personal growth, and we've noticed her change with Naruto. Now we see that she's determined not only to help him, but to protect him. Her knowledge of Naruto has surpassed even those of any other character in the series (except for Kurama and Jiraiya maybe...)

-Responsibility: I don't think I have to dig much in this one, but to state a point... Naruto is determined to help his friends and he has taken action about it. That's what responsibility stands for: making action of your words. And we know without a doubt that he'll do anything for Sakura.

We can also say the same about Sakura, she has even set aside her feelings to protect Naruto. Plus she's determined to grow strong and to help Naruto no matter what.

-Respect: This can be a pretty touchy subject, since respect implies many things. Despite this, we know that Naruto respects Sakura's feelings and is ready to set aside his own feelings to help her realize hers. Of course, we don't want this to happen, but I state this because that how far Naruto is wiling to respect Sakura.

Now, Sakura has also shown respect towards Naruto, since she knows Naruto's pain and she has shown empathy towards him. We've seen this bloom during the second part of the series (and we've seen hints since the first series, as far back as to episode three, I think). And I believe that she is also ready to cast aside her feelings in order to protect him (again, we want her to confirm her feelings for Naruto, but I'm speaking about her illusion with Sasuke, which she clearly demonstrated to cast aside when she tried to kill him)

-Care: Ah, the interest for the other person's well being and the desire to help them grow. Do I have to explain that both of them have done this? The series has proven each time that they care for each other. smile.gif

Finally, the key factor for a relationship to grow: Communication. Naruto and Sakura have share more moments than any other couple in the series. And during the second part of the series, both have improved the communication up to the point of trusting each other. They both know what they're going through, and even though they haven't had a solid scene where they can talk to each other about everything, I'm pretty sure they deserve to have one after all of the events about the war are done.


Having the definition of Love in mind, and seeing the proofs about how each requisite has been completed (if we analyze these factor with every other couple, mainly NaruHina and SasuSaku, we'll notice that none of them meet the standards), the two characters who should end up as a couple (as how a relationship in real life should occur) are Naruto and Sakura. narusakuct7.gif

These are my reasons as to why I am a NaruSaku fan. a_thumbs.gif

nice reply shadow wolf ^^

well i love narusaku, first because sakura is my fav character hehe. now i really love the relationship sakura has with naruto. as i said in a previous post on another thread, they really know each other and they are able to be themselves with each other. in the manga 470 page 3 naruto clearly says that he thinks he knows her better than that or something like that. sakura is always taking care of naruto and she's able to control him whenever he does sometihng stupid. well naruto loves her, she not for the moment but for me with increading feelings for naruto (even love but she is not aware of this or is trying to ignore them) but well also naruto is very protective with her. they know much more about each other.. huh i'm not very inspired right now xD
pd: sorry por my not so good english hehehe. not my native language

Hmmmm, now you get a good bit of points here for some of that stuff.

Plus, even if Hinata really cares about Naruto, she still doesn't know the real him as evident with her concerns when their teams confronted Tobi while trying to track down Sasuke and how Sakura had to tell her to keep her eyes on Tobi himself, showing the difference in how Sakura knows Naruto's true strengths after letting go of her false preconceptions that Naruto was weak, a quitter, and lazy. While Hinata had wished Naruto to not go on in his fight for Neji after he got hit by the 8 Trigrams 64 Palms, while, as shown in the anime, Sakura was rooting for Naruto to stand up which he eventually did, as well as sticking up for him when Ino said he had no chance of beating Neji.

I like Hinata too, but my problem with her is she hasn't grown stronger so she doesn't have to depend on Naruto all the time, you know? And that's how she differs from Sakura, since Sakura wanted to break away from that feeling and protect Naruto as well as help him save Sasuke by training under Tsunade to become a medical ninja. While it's obvious Hinata has grown stronger, she still has to rely too much on Naruto to be confident.

It's strange to me how this topic has come so far, and yet most of the reasons are exactly the same. lol

My like for the pairing, and earlier dislike, is more personal. I disliked it because I've been rejected and ignored like that before, and I like it now because of the prospect of a nerdy-loser-type-guy finally winning the girl by sheer relentlessness. lol

And...as for the comedy...am I the only one who doesn't like when she hits him? I just find it...not cool. hm.png But it's not really a personal thing. Frankly, I'm just not a fan of misandry. Reverse the genders, and that would never fly. Not nearly as far as Naruto does every time he gets hit, anyway. lol
On the morning of Wednesday, April 11th, 2012, my Aunt Karla passed away. She was my mother's baby sister, and my coolest aunt when I was a kid. She was the best babysitter ever, and she was like an older sister to me.

Karly, I don't know if you can hear this. I am not a believer, I haven't been since Sheryl died. But if you can, I want you to know that I'm truly sorry for everything bad I've ever said about you. When you were suffering, I should have been there to help you. I should have visited. I should have encouraged you to leave the house and get a job, to be active and alive the way you used to be.

I promise that I will do everything that I can to be successful and a good person, to make you proud the way you would have wanted me to. No matter what I said, I loved you. And I will always love you. Rest in Peace, you will never be forgotten.
