In fact, they've been talking about Naruto and Sakura having a baby soon- since the Kushina flashbacks. They are likely figuring on a bit of a parallel with Minakush. Meaning, when Sasuke and Naruto have their final fight Sakura will be pregnant with or just given birth to a narusaku baby.

what's with people saying "wtf they're only 16!!!"

you ever think the japanese fans are talking about FUTURE events, as in, not having babies right now while at 16/17 but in the future when they're actual adults? -_- the japanese fans at the time they predicted this are probably assuming the final battle will take place when they're adults, like kishi will do a time skip or something, AND THEN there's the whole narusaku baby blah blah blah

but of course, right now in the manga, it seems that the final battle will in fact occur very soon, near the end of the war or shortly after the war. :P

I mean, even though they may seem like adults, they are just 16 or 17 years old. Having a baby... already??

Masashi Kishimoto's morals are not to be taken like this. This disgusts me, this pairing fighting is upsetting. The fight will be coming up soon and they are still 16.

....wow.
.....just wow.

there are so many things wrong with your argument that i just can't find the time to point them all out.

first of all-- NARUSAKU IS DEAD. that's right. D- E - A - D.
not that it was ever alive to begin with because Sakura didn't legitimately reciprocate Naruto's feelings. and when she tried, HE REJECTED HER. he turned her away. that isn't love. naruto KNOWS she's in love with Sasuke. he realized that a LONG TIME AGO. try paying closer attention to the actual manga WHICH IS 110% CANON than using fillers and LOL, HENTAI doujins to argue your ship is real.

and if you do actually pay attention to the manga-- N/S haven't had any time together since the start of the war. infact!! SS was reimplied with the random rock-nin who gave Sakura a love letter which she turned down, saying she was already in love with someone else (with Sasuke cameo!) and NH... well, i won't spoil it for you and crush your shipper dreams, but it's looking more and more like endgame.

stop wasting your time clinging to false hope and read the story for what it is rather than what you oh-so-desperately want it to be.
2nd of all-- interviews aren't a reliable source of information. Kishi's said alot of things and not all of them are true. and it'd help to know a little japanese here and there to be able to translate it correctly. google doesn't do an accurate enough job to be verifiable. i took japanese for three years at school and oh what a difference it makes to actually understand the writing systems. it really makes it alot clearer as to what they are actually saying. but, an interview is just that-- an interview. the mangakas are under contract and can't divulge any actual information. only implications and hints. so take everything said with a grain of salt.

seriously, this is just lulzy and SO much fail. try, try again (and still fail.)

(I'll take pity on you and hold back since this is two years old, but you failed to show any legit proof so i'm pretty sure you made this up from your delusions.)

Don't be one of the people during the little naruhina hand holding act to give up hope. It's kinda funny, but I usually get a little mad or irritated or whatever when a naruhina or sasusaku little moment happens in the manga, but for some reason when this one came up of naruhina, I DIDN'T GET MAD AT ALL lol. I felt nothing except a little happiness that hope still reins in the darkness that was occurring. But seriously, with no boasting, I am an expert on THIS. NaruSaku can so TOTALLY HAPPEN. I'll admit it not canon (100%), but chances are the greatest.

sorry to say I honestly don't want to give reasons why (there are too many lol), but I'll say that kibahina or sasuhina (the most likely to happen of the two, I STRONGLY believe). SasuHina can totally happen, I not even fan of them but I think it totally can happen lol. In case your wondering about the leftover two people after NaruSaku.

No I meant something written from a Japanese fan. I personally hope it will become canon since I've been going over the manga and analyzing it.

Sakura's been the only one Naruto has had eyes for. Sakura is slowly returning Naruto's feelings. The third databook says that she doesn't know what she eels toward him and that he makes her heart beat faster. As for 615, I see that as Naruto just being Naruto. Kishimoto has a certain way he draws Naruto's eyes and expression when he is with Sakura that isn't present when he's with Hinata.

Thanks, you're the kind of fan I would expect Hinata to have as her personality is like in the manga. :) It shocks me how nasty and mean the very vocal naruhina shippers are- they are just like how alternate Hinata is in Road to Ninja...

I think what made Kishimoto start feeling a distate for Hinata were two things- Studio Perriot in the anime fillers and their filler moments in the adaption of the manga turning her into a "Mary-Sue" while negatively stereotyping Sakura in the very fashion Kishimoto deliberately avoided in the manga for the tsundere type girls that are so obviously ;) his favorite type- he created a much softer and realistic version of that type. Pierrot just ignored that and just shoved Sakura into the easy stereotyped image. That's part of it, but the last straw was when rabid Sakura bashing fans who were rabid Hinata fans were writing him trashing Sakura and worshiping Hinata. That hacked off Kishimoto.

Kishimoto made it obvious from the start the ending was going to be narusaku. There are certain types of romantic storylines you see in shonen manga, and if you've read enough manga you can spot what one it's going to be within the first few chapters. It was absolutely obvious in chapter 3 it was going to be "tsundere girl comes to love boy who loves her".

On top of that Oda (writer of One Piece and Kishimoto's friend) rather gave it away that Kishimoto was at least in part basing Sakura on his wife (Oda was at Kishimoto wedding in 2003 and said Kishimoto's wife looked just like Sakura.) Kishimoto admits Naruto is himself in part. Then you get, as you noted, the minakush overt similarities to narusaku, and Kishimoto point blank saying he asked his wife to tell him how to write Kushina correctly...

As for who Hinata will end up with I think it's between Neiji and Kiba. Kishimoto will first hint at one, then hint at the other. (I think he wants to keep the fans guessing)

As I pointed out, we already have examples in Naruto's world of women becoming mothers at 16-17- Chiyo and Tsume. (both were married too) Sakura is already 17 now, and the baby's conception pretty much basically have to not happen until the war arc ends. In Naruto's world, as in Japan up to the Showa era, at around 15-16 (in Naruto's world it appears to be 16)one is officially an adult, able to marry, have children, no longer be shielded from the most dangerous fighting (see Kushina's flashback during the Kyuubi attack- the scene with Kurenai and her father. Kurenai and Asuma were 15, Kakashi and Gai were 14. Yet we don't see Ebisu there and he was just 16, and Genma at 17 was Minato's bodyguard, and he wasn't present in that protected group either.) and see the current arc, this war is considered worst of the four, yet Naruto's age peers are right at the front lines.

It's likely we'll see some sort of touching, yet funny scene where Naruto proposes marriage to Sakura. In part 1 Naruto was the one who did the most (but contrary to what the Sakura bashers claim, not all- Sakura's actions are more subtle but still significant in part 1) to move narusaku forward, until Sakura makes the last move during their interactions. In part 2 Sakura has been the one who has done almost all of the actions that have moved narusaku forward. (while Naruto's actions are the more subtle but still significant in part 2)

It's pretty likely, Naruto, influenced by his accepting Sakura's change- that she has fallen in love with him (see his mental image of her in chapter 505 panel 2 here:
[link] Note- her full attention is on Naruto and she is lightly blushing, with her hand fisted over her heart),
and by his mother's flashbacks and advice, will finally make the big move, and likely after that long awaited kiss of Sakura's forehead (since chapter 3!), propose marriage. :)

Yes, Kishimoto wasn't married until 2004. See the congratulations on his "very recent marriage" that year and the 5th anniversary of the Naruto manga from other mangaka on the last manga tankobon published in 2004. His older daughter was born in 2006.

Pumyte's story is proven fake by known facts. Even if the proof wasn't in print there are big red flags that would clue anyone in that pumyte's story is fake-

1) the fake sourcing- "friend from Japan who's brother..." Never trust a "source" like that. It screams made up story, and by that person who claims they heard it elsewhere at that.

2)An artist naming their child the same name as one of their own characters? Bwah hah hah hah. Seriously, I feel sorry anyone who fell for something so obviously and poorly made up.

3) Kishimoto's own words in interviews. At Jump Festa 2009 (the actually interview not the fake muddled version put out by rabid a naruhina shipper)- He's blunt at his irritation of the rabid naruhina shippers. He actually mocked the character Hinata he was so irritated at them. He made it clear Hinata was and always will be a minor support character. He was blunt that Sakura is the only main female character of the manga, the only main heroine of the manga. Kishimoto was blunt in stating Sakura was being 100% truthful about being in deeply love with Naruto. Naruto still is deeply love with Sakura.

4)What Kishimoto writes in the manga- the parallel of Kushina's personality and changing opinion of Minato overtly parallels Sakura's to Naruto. He even playfully showed that had Minato and Kushina survived, Kushina would still be fiesty and hot tempered, even as mother. He has Kushina outright say to Naruto "Don't fall for a weird girl" using the exact same words in Japanese Naruto uses in Chapter 34 to describe Hinata. Then Kushina says "chose a girl like me" and this right after it's made obvious Kushina's personality and changing opinion of Minato overtly parallel's Sakura's to Naruto.

5) Kishmoto has made it obvious several times that Hinata is to Naruto what Rock Lee is to Sakura. Sakura was actually sweeter to Rock Lee- and that back in part 1 no less- and overtly acknowledged in her thoughts in a kind way that he had acted to save her out of his romantic feelings for her. Yet there's no collection of obnoxious rabid LeeSaku shippers bashing Naruto and insisting that LeeSaku is the real pairing, even though there's actually been more support for it than the completely nonexistent naruhina.

1)2)3)well I was screwed up a bit, because there wasn't enough information on internet about it ^^; now I opened my eyes more widely...

4) I totally agree with, but then in chapter 98 Naruto sayed that he thought about Hinata as a weirdo, that means he doesn't think like that anymore (this makes me sound like a naruhina fan ^^;) but I don't think it's good to use the chapter 34 as a proof. Kishi doesn't like to leave things so obvious :D

5)The LeeSaku fans think that it's a real pairing? lol that is as real as NaruTen or SasuHina

4) Oh yes he does like to make things "that obvious" Thus the screamingly obvious parallel of Kushina's personality and attitude toward Minato to Sakura's personality and attitude toward Naruto. He even uses some of the same poses and expressions with Naruto and Sakura and Minato and Kushina within 20 chapters... He doesn't just do this with pairing themes either. Look at all the obvious alluding to Naruto's father in part 1 and part 2 before Tsunade and Jiraiya outright state Minato is Naruto's father.

5) Yes they do, and with more actual manga evidence than naruhina shippers. There's a couple of scenes in the manga in part 1 that actually could be plausibly be mistaken as showing Sakura acting in such a way that it could be misread as sweet and innocently romantic toward Lee. Unlike the scenes that naruhina shippers contort completely implausibly into something romantic from Naruto toward Hinata.

Contrary to the majority of naruhina shippers, LeeSaku shippers are not going around trolling narusaku shippers, and sending letters so obnoxiously rude to Kishimoto that he got so irritated that mocked their worshiping of Hinata at the Jump Festa 2009 interview...

Unlike the vast majority of incredibly rude and trollish naruhina shippers I've encountered (talk about being nothing like their favorite character Hinata...) the LeeSaku shippers I've encountered have been rather like Lee- polite and quirkishly determined.

Yes. And Kishimoto just dropped another hint in the chapter where Chouji has the flashback to the conversation he had with his father right after he finally became a Chunin (shortly before his 15th birthday according to the 3rd databook) Chouji makes the comment "not everyone starts a family young." Meaning Chouji might not, but at least one couple of their generation will. Add to the above things he's hinted, along with Kishimoto's clear statement that it won't be ShikamaruxTemari that start a family young, that sure is a lot of things pointing to Naruto and Sakura having a baby sometime soon.

I'm beginning to think this might even have been what Kishimoto meant when he talked about Sakura showing her love for Naruto even more and being even more heroic at Jump Festa 2009. There is an element in traditional Japanese culture that states a having a baby as the greatest expression of love and heroism a woman can do. It was meant as positive statement, an affirmation.

When I recall what Kishimoto had Kurenai's father say to her about living and having a baby, the way he portrayed Kushina's heroism on the night Naruto was born, the way he portrayed Kurenai during her pregnancy and with her baby in a recent chapter I think he believes this very much.

Of course if Kishimoto does have Naruto and Sakura get together soon and have a baby before the end of the manga I know what the Sakura bashers will say: they'll make sneering comments about how "she's only good enough to make babies" (showing their own sexist mentality toward women, by their belittlement women having babies. Idiots, they wouldn't be here if their mothers had gone through the effort to have them.) And others will bash Kishimoto and call it sexist, when it's not. It's not sexist if the woman has the free choice and chooses to out of love.

Wow, what a story, unfortunately for you I know it's a baldfaced lie.

Kishimoto has two daughters, and the older is only 5 years old. He received published congratulations in Japan from other manga writers upon his marriage and upon the birth of his older daughter. They appear in the Japanese versions of the Naruto manga volumes, and some even appear in the English translated volumes. Kishimoto married in 2004 and his older daughter was born in 2006.

Hah, you naruhina shippers are hysterical, you make up stuff so much because there's nothing in the manga, and Kishimoto actually told you folks that Hiinata is not important and to stop bashing Sakura. He told you all in 2009 that he wanted you clueless people to get it that Sakura is in love with Naruto, Naruto is in love with Sakura and Sakura is the only main female character.

Seriously, he's even shown that Hinata is moving on from her crush on Naruto in 489.

Kishimoto also showed in chapter 505 how Naruto now sees Sakura and Hinata. Naruto now sees Sakura as a woman in love with him (she looks straight at Naruto adoringly with a light blush on her face), while Naruto's gone back to thinking of Hinata as the weird girl.(Hinata looks completely away from Naruto, crouched over, with a shadowed face and a frown.) Oh and Kishimoto places her right next to Lee who looks a bit depressed (he just found out Sakura is totally in love with Naruto) which is yet another reminder to readers is that Hinata is to Naruto as Lee is to Sakura.

In volume 20 one of the congratulatory messages on his marriage (in late 2003)and the 4th anniversary of the manga that were in the Japanese volumes appears in the English translated volumes.

I'm not sure if it's in the English volumes, but one of the Japanese 2006 manga tankobons has a congratulatory message that mentions the birth of his older daughter. (so she was born either in late 2005 or sometime in 2006)

At Jump Festa 2010 he mentioned his wife and daughters in the context of a question about guilty pleasures. It's considered really girly to like sweets, ice cream, etc... in Japanese culture. Kishimoto loves ice cream so when he gets a craving for ice cream he goes along with his wife and daughters to eat ice cream at an ice cream parlor. :D

Not sure when his younger daughter was born, but it was before late 2008, because there was a mention of him having two kids that year (I believe at that year's Jump Festa)

It's spring, she's 17 now. Chiyo was 16-17 when she gave birth to Sasori's father and that was a time of war. Tsume (Hana and Kiba's mother) was 17 when she gave birth to Hana during the Third Ninja World War. Mikoto gave birth to Itachi during the Third Ninja World War. Neiji, Rock Lee, Tenten and Sai were all born during the last year of the Third Ninja World War. Temari and Kankoru were born during the Third Ninja World War. Gaara was conceived while the Third Ninja World War was going on as were Sakura, Naruto, Sasuke, Karin, Shikamaru, Chouji, Ino, etc...

I know manga story line guidelines quite well.

Amusing that there's all kinds of fits being thrown by the trolls about two young people in love, within the normal age range in that fictional world having a baby, but no outrage about things that should be what you regard as terrible-

a six year old sent out on missions to kill or be killed- Kakashi,

a seven old, ditto- Itachi,

a 12 year old blown up by a bomb- Nawaki,

A 13 year old crushed to death- Obito

an approximately 11 year old having to kill or be killed- Minato

Etc...

The Japanese readers, including the voice actor for Naruto are for a baby sometime soon. When you read manga, especially on set in an alternate world, you have to realize this is not set in the modern USA. This is a world where 15 year olds are viewed like how 18 year olds are in the west, and 18 year olds like 21 year olds. If you can make that adjustment as far as fighting goes, you look ridiculous throwing a fit about characters that will most likely be at least 18 before any child is born.

This is Kishimoto taking yet another reference out of historical Japanese culture. 15 year olds were considered adults in training- being allowed to marry and start a family and taking on other adult responsibilities gradually. By 17-18 becoming a full adult.

Things weren't that different in the west either. You see remnants of that in the driving age and legal employment age. Up till the 1990's 16 was also the age in the US a person could drop out of school and go to work.

In Japan up till the later 1990's 16 year olds could still marry with parental permission. (Note- a main premise of the shonen manga Ranma 1/2- published from the 1980's-mid 1990's)

Every time I see a comment like this I remember the statements of many Japanese mangaka- "I don't know how well westerners will understand all the Japanese things in manga."

I've been reading manga for many years. I did quickly develop a sensitivity to the story lines and styles, but some westerners- especially like the trolls here, I seriously doubt ever will.
