Right, it's still Naruto --> Sakura and not the other way around.

Thing is, many of us thought Naruto --> Sakura died out since the failfession.

This chapter confirms that Kishimoto is still ship teasing.

Oh well >_>

The thing is Naruto--->Sakura is used as a joke like in this chapter or involves Naruto affirming that Sakura is in love with Sasuke. It's not to be taken seriously when the context of how the characters are drawn and the reactions between both Sakura and Naruto. at least compared how Sakura reacted to when Sasuke showed up or how Naruto acted in 615

Well the japanese is probably "kanojo" which is literally "her", but is used as "girlfriend" as well. So Minato is asking, is that "her"? So the girl that is a friend thing doesn't work quite so well in the original japanese.

Maybe it's a joke. But Hinata was right there and instead of saying, "she's a friend", Naruto didn't deny anything, or even glance at Hinata. That's just... ick. Instead of strengthening NH he goes and revives memories of NS. As an NH fan, I'm slightly unhappy with Kishimoto for this.

Don't worry. A four panel comical scene where Naruto’s more dumbfounded and hesitant than enthusiastic and confident and Sakura still shuts down the remote implication of being his gf by knocking him senseless [with her “charming forehead” no less] before he’s even done explaining himself is supposed doesn't re-establish Naru->Saku.

Ahh forehead butt. The epitome of romance ^0^

You're right he was still in the middle of forming his thoughts. Now I really want to know what that last speech bubble said in Japanese. "Splitting hairs"? Did he finish his sentence? I'm not worried but I'm curious. Thanks for the reassurance.

Here's my analysis: Kishi needed some way to write Sakura back into the story and make the Naruto vs. Sasuke future fight still make sense with the latter's return to the light.

We got some nostalgia of the old days in this chapter: People confusing Naruto and Sakura for dating each other. Naruto naturally goes along with it and then he is punished for such a bad joke. Everyone's attention is on Sasuke the minute he enters the scene, especially Sakura. Well, everyone, except Hinata. Sasuke says something that foreshadows a final battle between the two of them. And Naruto says he will be Hokage.

The chapter's real focus was on Team Seven's reunion. And to get it altogether, Kishi needed to bring nostalgia of the old days. That sound about right?

I really think it's silly that people say that Sakura is exactly like Kushina when she really isn't. The only thing they have in common is that they're both hot-heads. By that logic, that would mean that Ino, Temari, Karin and Karui could also end up with Naruto.

And no, I'm not hating in NaruSaku, just in case.

at least theres someone who agrees about this. seriously, take back when sai asked naruto if he liked sakura, he was shocked and bashful. here, he was just casual and normal. if he was serious, he'd be all joky and make up more stuff. Plus, I read the wiki he was lying about the girlfriend bit, it was just a joke. and just cause we now know sakura is similar to kushina (temper wise at least and physically attacking), doesn't mean that its a sure thing for narusaku, I, as a naruhina fan, won't lose hope. Plus, hinata was in the panels after said narusaku moments happened, like a way to reafirm kishi going with naruhina.

this was not the comment I was expecting from you after what you said concerning Sakura.
