Just because I don't believe there is enough evidence in the manga to conclusively say Naruto x Hinata will happen (and I am still unconvinced even after the latest chapters), that in no way translates to me being a Naruto x Sakura "shipper."
What does it conclude you to be then? Naruto x Sasuke shipper? Naruto x Naruko shipper? Naruto x NOBODY shipper?

Girl, you are deceiving NO ONE! Stop trying to cover your tracks. We all know you want Naruto and Sakura to have babies with each other. All the evidence has been drawn down in front of you and you still deny it.

It's like people saying that dead Neji will be revived when it isn't going to happen. Or that Sasuke is gay when that isn't the case. Or that Orichimaru resembles Micheal Jackson when that is a straight-up lie. And who in their right mind said that Naruto and Karin will end up together? Like seriously?

And was this fanart? Or was this OFFICIALLY drawn by Kishimoto for a movie that was purely directed by him? Cause if this is true, then why can't NaruSaku fans or any other fans that aren't NaruoHina just give up already? Your shitty fandoms ain't gonna be canon. Deal with it. bigrazz

A quote from a YouTube guy I recently started listening to...
Quote from Sawyer7mage
Just to give my final thoughts on this whole pairing bullshit:
If you're driving a car on the road and I'm sitting in the passenger's seat and I look up ahead in the distance and I see a moose (which in this case the moose represents NaruHina). If I see a moose, I have the obligation to tell you, "hey, if we keep going we're going to hit a moose."

But NaruSaku fans think they're seeing a cat in the distance - okay. So they keep saying, ", it's a cat. Don't worry about it. It'll be fine." Okay - sooner or later that thing is going to be either a moose or a cat.

So when the time comes - okay - and we finally hit whatever we're supposed to hit, I just don't want people telling me, "why the F**k did we hit a moose? ...that makes no fucking sense." I've been telling you we were going to hit a moose, I don't know - F**king two years ago!

Did you like my little metaphor? I liked it. I think it was really clever of me to compare pairing debates with a f**king car crash.

Obviously you have selective reading abilities. I said exactly what my preferences were:

Quote from brid
(I prefer a no-pairings ending, if you must know.)

There you go. I am a Naruto x NOBODY shipper. (I'd like to avoid pairings wank at the end of the manga.) Does that make it clear?

As for assuming I'm some kind of undercover Naruto x Sakura shipper, I don't like Sakura. From my response in the "Why do people hate Sakura?" thread:

Quote from brid
Well, I don't want to write a novel, so I'll say in summary: a bad personality + poor character development makes Sakura one of my least favorite characters in Naruto.

Does that make it clear?

Not everything is about ships. You can enjoy this manga without having a preferred pairing. Fans don't break down into Naruto x Hinata or Naruto x Sakura. It isn't an either/or proposition. This thread about Karin is just a discussion exploring the possibilities, nothing about what we like as individuals.

A lot of us, quite frankly, don't give fvck about the end pairing. If I want romance, there's a whole pink, sparkly shoujo world out there. That's much more satisfying than Naruto holding hands with some chick in the epilogue, which is all we're going to get out of this manga.

As for why I am unconvinced about the absolute inevitability of Naruto x Hinata, simply put, Kishimoto has continually surprised all of us. He says one thing in his interviews and does another. He pulls plot twists out of his ass (like reviving Orochimaru), and we pretty much have to accept it. If he's left himself some wiggle room on something, then there's a good chance it may not come to pass as you think it will. Cherelle Ashlee and smarts already did a good job explaining why the latest few chapters didn't necessarily indicate romance on Naruto's part. No need to add to what they said. Naruto x Hinata may still happen, but the possibility it may be some one else entirely (like Karin, to get back to the original subject of the thread) is still there.

In conclusion, shippers, we will simply have to agree to disagree.

Off topic but, I'm curious of what your opinion will be of the Road to Ninja movie after you watch it Queen-VIP. ^_^

I actually don't mind if Naruto ends up with no one, but I still wouldn't like for Sakura to end up with anyone either. (Well actually she can, but as long as it isn't Sasuke, that relationship is just terrible)

I can see Kishi leaving the romance open ended in the end for fans to do what they please after the fact. None of the pairings are canon, therefore no drama should be made. -but of course, some people would probably say it was a cop out-

As for Sakura's character, I don't mind her. And I like her, or rather, I liked where Kishi was going with her at first, but it seems he never actually does anything with her. In part 1, he hints at her being great with genjutsu, we haven't really seen her genjutsu talent. He has her fight Sasori (with help) and win, but after that we don't ever see her in any significant battles due to some "Medics should never fight on the front lines" BS flashback from Tsunade. On multiple covers, we see hints of her wielding an axe or being a slug summoner, yet Kishi never follows up with that either.

I think Sakura could have been a fantastic character and I don't blame her for Kishi's less than satisfactory writing of her. I don't think he intended for her to end up as such a mess, but he just had to write boring arcs about Sasuke killing people and going on through boring revenge. -Sasuke vs Itachi stuff, understandable, but everything else other than Orochimaru was just useless- All that time he spent developing Sasuke, he could have given some to Sakura to develop her character, but no. *sigh*
