    No Besho there is no evidence to suggest that Naruto was ever in love with Sakura, he only has a crush but it never went beyond that level. if anything Naruto accepted the fact that Sakura would never be able to return his crush a long time ago, he accepted it with the promise of a lifetime, when he said Sakura you really must like Sasuke, he was hurt by that, but it was at time when he showed that he needed to swallow his pride and accept that fact and in the land of iron when he said that Sakura loves Sasuke with no hesitation, which showed that he had matured to the point where his crush on Sakura was basically no more. (sure some people might not accept it, but that is the harsh reality of it.) Naruto's crush on Sakura hasn't been brought up in a very long time.

    there is nothing to be confused about, she felt guilty because she thought she was the one that caused Naruto all the pain he was suffering, that was only part true, the real antagonists there were Sasuke, because Naruto felt like he failed Sakura by not bringing Sasuke back for her, Obito, for using Sasuke for his own plans and the death of his parents and Sakura for placing a burden on Naruto, there are others like Pein for the death of Jiraiya, Kurama for his loneliness. But Sakura wasn't really fully responsible for his hurt.

    Of course Naruto didn't believe Sakura, he knows her better than that, to just suddenly change ones feelings to another would portray Sakura in a positive light.

    Now about the comparison of Sakura and Kushina, it now means nothing because all other parallels after that was directed towards Naruto. so this temper comparison isn't really that important anymore

    So why did Naruto said that Sakura was his GF? that mean he is still attracted to Sakura.

    Speaking of Kushina, given the revelations about Karin's background and abilities, I wish she had interacted more with Naruto in general. I might've shipped Naruto x Karin if she had dropped her Sasuke obsession and focused on Naruto more, but alas. There's still Hinata though and although she's really shy and hasn't done much for Naruto, I still think she'd be a good girlfriend for him. I mean at least she's never harassed him or made fun of him unlike some other female characters.

    When did he say this? I literally don't remember.

    When Naruto replied to his father he was lying, in fact the question wasn't directed at Naruto, it was directed at Sakura, but when Naruto replied to his Sakura was so displeased with Naruto's answer she head butted him for lying, some might say she didn't say anything against it, but there is a nice saying, actions speak louder than words. Sakura's actions against Naruto's lie is a clear indication in that moment, that she isn't interested in Naruto in a romantic manner. especially since the following chapter Naruto did say that he will no longer joke around Sakura otherwise he might end up as a blood stain, he usually says that after saying something that makes Sakura angry

    Naruto loves Sakura, and we know that he's NOT the kind of person who changes his mind and feelings easily. He loves Sakura. He said it to Sai, Kakashi knows, Yamato knows. In all honesty, Naruto might still have some feelings for sakura but he knows she loves Sasuke, while Hinata he only thinks of her as a close friend for now. NaruSaku is not canon, but there is just so much more of a possibility for it. I mean NaruHina can at least happen, but it won't be anywhere near as much in terms of development if it did.
    Naruto can't just go loving Hinata unless he really was ticked off about what Sakura did and would need closure with her before getting over his crush on her.

    It's hard to tell at the moment. We'll have to wait and see these kind of things unfold, but it's typical for Kishimoto to do these kind of things and leave us at cliff hangers. I mean, they're in the middle of a war so I don't think any of them are really thinking about relationships at this point. Part of me has a feeling that he might end up with Sakura in the end.

    naruto never said he loves her iirc he only had a crush on her that never evolved, sai is not most reliable source seeing as how he needs books to understand social interactions. there have been more naruhina moments in this war than narusaka(did they have any?) and kishimito actually developed naruhina

    I know about that adorable moment (chapter 615), but it's still hard to tell which one he'll choose.

    I think Naruto understands that Sakura still loves Sasuke, so I fully expect his crush on Sakura to wane before the series ends. I just think that everything so far has been building up to Sakura and Sasuke being meant for each other while that leaves Naruto and Hinata imo. Of course Kishi could pull a big plot twist at the end by ignoring Sakura's love for Sasuke and having her end up with Naruto instead, but I would cry foul because that would be such a trollish move imo. :x

    Besho, firstly there is no evidence of Naruto even being in love with Sakura, sure there could have been a chance that it could have gone to that point, but in reality Naruto has accepted the fact that Sakura would always love Sasuke, next there has been little to no development in terms of Naruto's now questionable crush on Sakura, really we haven't seen Naruto's crush on Sakura being brought up in a very long time, it was sometime well before the war when we last saw something to do with his silly little crush, he could have easily have moved on which is most likely the case.

    the reason why it isn't right, is because NaruSaku isn't a pairing where the feelings are mutual, Naruto isn't really in love with Sakura and vice versa, but on the other hand NaruHina has received important developments since Hinata's all important confession, now that doesn't mean Naruto would have fallen for her straight away. It is something that needs to be given time, Hinata's confession is still relevant to the story since an answer from Naruto isn't that much of a stretch due to his so far positive reactions after that confession, but when it comes to Sakura's confession, it has already got an answer and it involved Naruto nuking it to a million pieces.

    At this point I've already stopped caring about debating over which ships I want. Kishi will obviously continue his trolling ways so I'll just hold on until he stops the trolling and just makes a ship canon.

    Well I don't think that is the case, Kishi has never really trolled NaruHina to the extent he has with NaruSaku.
    NaruHina in this war arc has been given all the romantic development and the moments have been well spaced out very nicely. there has been positive development with NaruHina throughout this war and it isn't just on Hinata's side, it is also on Naruto's part as well, NaruHina is the pairing that is most likely to occur due to the positive development, I really haven't seen Kishi troll NaruHina since Naruto entered the war, Kishi is just doing what a lot of us has expected, being realistic, cannot fight a deadly foe while holding a girls hand, that would be pretty dumb.

    plus Romance in the series can wait, there is still Madara to deal with.

    I still try to remain positive about NaruHina happening. I mean yes Kishi keeps going backwards and forwards about which girl will end up with Naruto, but I still believe that he'll choose Hinata as Naruto's "waifu" in the end. At least I really hope so since she seems perfect for him imo. Anyway, I also hope that Shikamaru and Temari become a pair. I just think they're perfect for each other. :P

    I don't think there is too much to worry about at this stage, right now Naruto's life hangs in the balance and there is the deadliest enemy they have ever faced to this moment, I do find that NaruHina has the advantage, throughout this war and in the last 300 or chapters NaruSaku hasn't been given much to look at, Naruto's now questionable crush hasn't been brought up by Naruto himself in a very long time, it just makes the reader wonder, does Naruto still have this crush on Sakura? I do find that Naruto's little crush wasn't really an important part of his character so it never really developed, so I do find that his crush on Sakura evaporated over time, especially since he has been rejected so many times by Sakura.

    I don't think Kishi has gone back and forth since NaruHina has received the much stronger moments since Hinata's all important confession, but hey whatever Kishi decides that's up to him, but I do remember seeing his concept picture of Naruto and Hinata. Plus I see nothing wrong with main hero ending up with supporting girl, I have seen it a few times already.

    SasuKarin has really grown on me for some reason lol. I like it because... well I think it's funny . And I don't care what others say about it lol.
    As for the stabbing part.. well I don't think he meant it. Sasuke was in a bad situation that day. He literally was going to kill everyone. Including Sakura and Kakashi.

    the other pairing I really like is ShikaTema, it seems to work for me as well, we haven't seen too much recently but maybe that is because there are important things to take care of.
    as for Sasukarin, well I am still extremely uncertain about it, for all we know Sakura could miss out, but meh, I don't really think that will be the case, she could end up with Rock Lee for all we know, lol.

    I love ShikaTema mainly because of the so painfully obvious chemistry the two of them share. Their personalities are somewhat opposite but also have similarities. She is troublesome and bossy and he is beyond lazy and cynical. They are so perfect for each other lol :3

    I think that pairing is interesting and somewhat ironic, but I don't completely support it. Sasuke's a pretty violent character and although that could change by the end of the story, I still don't think that'll change the horrible stuff he's done before. I suppose Karin has done her share of crimes as well, so the appeal of that ship to me is that they're both misguided characters who might understand each other better. I still hope that SasuSaku happens, but SasuKarin would be pretty interesting too.

    That's pretty much how I feel about SasuKarin. And I have always liked SasuSaku! it gives me butterflies lol, but I also think Sasukarin is interesting and ironic as well, just like you said. So, I like both lol.

    For a while I shipped SuiKarin (Suigetsu x Karin), but that was back when they would fight constantly and I found it funny. Whenever they do that now it seems forced and it seems like they honestly don't like each other so I pretty much gave up on that ship. So I kind of support SasuKarin if only because it has more going for it at the moment than other Sasuke ships imo.

    Well I still don't see SasuKarin having more for it at this stage, a lot of it is really one sided, Karin's fangirling over him, remember SasuSaku developed really well in the early days, but one of my friends said that both Sasuke and Sakura needed to develop as characters, so their individual character development was more important than that of a pairing development, so I do see that SasuSaku will start where they left off, like with Hinata, Sakura also hasn't gotten a reply. I do feel that both girls deserve a reply, be it positive or negative.

    With the Way Naruto has been going he is going to reply to Hinata in a positive manner. as for Sasuke replying to Sakura, well that is still up in the air at the moment. but my biggest gripe with SasuKarin is that Karin is only in love with Sasuke for the same reasons Ino and Sakura liked Sasuke for, because he is cool, he is smart and he is handsome. for Sakura she learned to eventually fall in love with the real Sasuke, learned to realise that he wasn't perfect, that he did have some problems, Sakura went from a crush that Karin is still exhibiting. with Sakura seeing the real Sasuke and loving the real Sasuke, plus there is no evidence to suggest that Sakura has moved on, Sakura loved Sasuke even when he fell to his lowest point, Naruto went through the same stages and even though Sakura is a really good friend she never wavered from her feelings towards Sasuke, I find it admirable that even after all this time she keeps those feelings for Sasuke, even after all this time and all the damage he has caused.

    I personally don't think Sakura will suddenly change her feelings from one guy to another, it just doesn't seem like her to do so, especially since she has been in love with the same guy over the course of the series, it will take far too much time for Sakura to fall in love with Naruto and if she does she could well be too late since Naruto would most likely end up with Hinata. due to the fact that it is really late in the series for the two girls to change their minds, Hinata has as Naruto always said, been there all this time, maybe that is because he knows who has been around for the most important moments since becoming a genin.

    Well Besho he hasn't said no to her, in fact I haven't even seen him reject her at any stage, he could have easily said he wasn't interested, but we haven't even got that, also we have seen a lot of really positive developments in this war arc from Naruto's side, I don't think he will say no to Hinata, especially since she is the first character to express their love towards him, (his parents did, but he never knew about them until Kushina told him about what happened)

    So it is likely that he will fall in love with Hinata, but I would like to see a little more development as the story nears it's end.
