Masashi Kishimoto Reveals Why Naruto Didn’t Get Sakura in the End

The ending of the Naruto: Shippuden series disappointed many fans who had hoped to see Naruto and Sakura finally together as a couple.

Even Kishimoto’s wife was opposed to the idea, he claims: “I had no idea there was such a stir. In fact, I nearly caused a schism in my own home because my wife was upset that Naruto married Hinata rather than Sakura.”

Many people can see that Naruto and Sakura had a good friendship and may have complemented each other in some way, but according to Masashi Kishimoto, they would never end up together, and the creator explained why.

When Kishimoto first introduced Sakura, he thought of her as just another character. Kishimoto revealed that Sakura was on the same level as Kiba or Shikamaru, so Naruto and Sakura being a couple didn’t bother her.

The Naruto manga author also revealed that he baited fans by showing Naruto and Hinata together. The series creator also explains why this romance did not begin sooner.

“To be honest, there wasn’t a lot of room or time to include such details. Naruto is a fighting manga, not a love story. You must decide what to emphasize, based on your assumptions about what readers want to see,” says Masashi Kishimoto. “So I never considered making them a couple, but I did include some bait to make readers think so. Naruto and Hinata had planned to marry from the start,” he added.

Yeah I call bullsht, then why not have had Naruto end up in the same team with hinata I’m the beginning? Why make Sakura and Naruto seem like they had so much chemistry?

Naruto i Sakura nie mają chemii! Od zawsze zachowywali się jak przyjaciele. Scena w śniegu (przed walką z Danzo) dobitnie wyraziła, że jeśli się kogoś kocha, to chce się by ta osoba była szczęśliwa. Naruto wiedział że Sakura kocha Sasuke, więc to był by związek kłamstwo. Utrata Sasuke, bardzo ich do siebie zbliżyła, oboje cenili Sasuke, ale byli przyjaciółmi, a nie parą. 
Po za tym Naruto zasuguje na kogoś lepszego niż zwykła kobieta. Hinata jest natomiast kiężniczką, Hinata jest członkinią pradawnego klanu. Jest kimś. Naruto też ostatecznie stał się kimś. Dlatego do siebie pasują. Oboje też byli w dzieciństwie wyrzutkami, nie zapomnijcie o tym, Hinata tak jak Naruto była odtrącona (odrzucona przez rodzinę).

Naruto and Sakura don’t have chemistry! They’ve always acted like friends. The scene in the snow (before the fight with Danzo) made it clear that if you love someone, you want that person to be happy. Naruto knew Sakura loved Sasuke, so that would be a lie. Losing Sasuke brought them very close, they both valued Sasuke, but they were friends, not a couple.
After that, Naruto deserves better than an ordinary woman. Hinata is a princess while Hinata is a member of an ancient clan. He is someone. Naruto eventually became someone too. That’s why they fit together. They were both outcasts in childhood, don’t forget that, Hinata, like Naruto, was rejected (rejected by the family).

You don’t have to be in the same team to fall in love with someone that’s stupid. Did you forget about Shikamaru and Temari? Lmao
