Now Playing Tracks

I am confident because of all this lovely development.

 The moment Sakura sees Naruto upon seeing him after 3 years, she flirts with him.

image

☁ The two of them work well together and are able to accomplish seemingly daunting tasks.

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

☁ Naruto wants to date Sakura

image

 Sakura is one of the first to find out about Naruto’s Jinchuuriki status, and the thought of him dying sends her into a fit of tears. She’s the only one to show actual concern that he might die because of the Nine Tails.

image

image

☁ In the middle of her battle with Sasori, where her life was on the line, Sakura thinks of her promise to Naruto

image

☁ Little talks like these occur between them.

image

image

☁ Sai, this early on where he has yet to even understand feelings, points out Sakura’s tenderness with Naruto.

image

☁ Sakura has shown little regard for her own life for Naruto’s sake.

image

image

image

image

☁ Yamato points out Sakura’s developing emotions after she asks to learn a technique to try and stop Naruto from turning into Fox-Mode.

imageimageimage

image

image

image

☁ Sakura is unwilling to abandon Naruto. She even yells at a superior for his sake.

image

image

☁ Naruto and Sakura have the similar personalities, shown through their actions and words.

image

image

image

☁ Naruto and Sakura are capable of being together in the village, when the situation is not dire and is, in fact, lighthearted.

(Again, Naruto wants to date Sakura)

image

image

image

imageimage

☁ Sakura did not have to offer to feed Naruto, but she did.

image

image

image

☁ Sakura is one of the ones there to see Naruto off for his Sage training, offering motivational words to him.

imageimageimageimage

☁ Sakura cried out for Naruto, believing that his training would be enough to save the village…

image

image

I love this moment because in the midst of despair and disaster, Sakura screams to the top of her lungs for Naruto. Nobody but him. I don’t know how to put into words how much this says about her relationship with him. But it says a lot, believe me.

… And he arrived to save the day.

image

☁ Sakura was concerned for his well being when she found out he turned into the Six Tails

image

image

 Sakura did not have to HUG Naruto on his return to the village, but she did anyway. (And the leaves danced around them)

image

image

☁ Sakura tries cheering Naruto up, even when she doesn’t understand why. Not to mention she needed his emotional support.

image

☁ Naruto cheers Sakura up when he knows she will be depressed.

image

image

☁ Naruto gets beaten up and wants to keep it from Sakura so she won’t worry. Kinda husband-like if you ask me.

image

☁ Sai makes Naruto inadvertently admit his feelings for Sakura.

image

image

☁ Sakura is forced to come to terms with how much pain she has caused Naruto, and doesn’t want to cause him any more.

image

image

image

☁ Contrary to popular belief, Sakura’s confession was selfless. How anyone could say otherwise when Kishi put it in the manga that it was is beyond me…

She a. released him of the Promise of a Lifetime, which she realized had caused him pain for 3 years, b. told him to worry about his own safety, pointing out the danger he was in, c. hid from him the truth about what everyone decided to do concerning Sasuke and decided to take the burden on her own delicate shoulders.

image

image

image

image

image

☁ Sakura screams out concernedly for Naruto when he and Sasuke clash.

image

☁ And defends Naruto, lashing out at Sasuke (a man she supposedly “loves”) for his sake.

image

☁ Naruto is the man who can make Sakura’s dreams come true. She can hold on to hope because of him.

image

☁ Sakura defends Naruto (again).

image

image

☁ Sakura has, yet again, a clear moment of selfless thoughts about Naruto and all of his burdens.

image

☁ Sakura will not let anyone take advantage of Naruto’s power/goodwill. She even states what he is thinking… kinda like a wife and husband relationship…

image

image

She’s always the one who has important insights about Naruto and has to be the one to tell the others, Hinata included, about them.

image

☁ Naruto is quick to claim Sakura as his GIRLFRIEND to his FATHER.

image

After everything that’s happened, he still calls her his girlfriend. Comic relief or not, that still says a lot. Didn’t even give Hinata a look/thought lol.

Might I add that him saying this to his father, someone he looks up to and wants to be like, kinda sets this up as much more serious than it’s given credit for?

It’s not like he’s going to be like “Hey dad! I changed my mind! Hinata is my girlfriend!”

He was serious, though hesitant, about Sakura’s status with him.

Naruto smiles at Sakura’s desire for his recognition. That desire is one of the reasons he likes her so much.

image

image

image

☁ We have these BIG ASS parallels.

1. Saving their love

image

2. Complimenting their love’s insecurities they’d been bullied about, saying it is what they enjoy about them.

image

image

3. Changing their love’s perspective of them.

image

(Sakura’s development described here to a tee)

4. Giving their love hope that they can have dreams.

image

image

(Anyone catch this one?)

5. The “find someone like your mother” advice from Kushina, stated about Sakura by Minato.

image

image


I made this post because I’m trying to boost my fellow NaruSaku shippers. Always, always remember that we have the most development, the most hints/parallels, the most intimacy.

Other pairings might have collectively ~10 chapters of development (IF that). WE HAVE THE SERIES. All of this is from the manga, but just Part II of it! Too lazy to do Part I haha

It was a lot of Sakura development, I’ll admit, but do you think Kishi would put her through all of that just to have Naruto lose his feelings for her? I certainly don’t.

We will come out on top. So don’t give up NaruSaku faithfuls!
