I haven't written an entry in , like, ever, so I guess it's about time for a new one. My last entry was a defense piece for Hinata, so I decided to make this one about her as well. I don't really like shipping, but for the longest time, I have been a supporter of Naruhina. A few months back, I changed my views slightly; I added Narusaku to my personal shipping support. The reason was because I'd starting associating with more Narusaku fans, who were explaining their support for Naruto being with Sakura. As much as I wanted to deny it, a few of the things they said made sense, and I am a Sakura fan, so I would be happy to see her find true love with Naruto. At the same time, however, I've never given up on Hinata being with Naruto. Anyway, onto the topic. In the recent chapters, I was surprised and delighted to see Hinata standing at the forefront with Naruto, and I wondered if this could be the beginning of development between Hinata and Naruto. Now, don't get me wrong; I am being cautious here. I've seen too many Naruhina fans blowing this out of proportions and deciding that this was ultimate confirmation of our ship. My words to such people are: do NOT let yourself believe this yet. Kishimoto knows his fandom, and he could just be teasing us to get our views(I remember a similar thing happening with Zutara fans who took the Ember Island Players and ATLa School Shipping too seriously, but that; another story). What I really want to see from here is that whats happened, Neji's death and everything else, will finally push Hinata over the edge and make her into a strong, independent kunoichi that I know she is. Come on, Hinata, make us proud
On another minor note, I wonder Sasuke now? What will his meeting with this guy they're going to see do for him? Will it redeem him at last?
