Tell me, who's Kushina... She looks cool!
Sakura scary? No... -_-
got the same circular white eyes of anger that Sakura had in the first episode of Shippuden!
I'm not saying Hinata is EXACTLY Kushina, I'm saying its obvious they share a lot of similarities, more than Sakura does or ever will. Sakura shares only one thing, and that is Kushina's temper. It does not mean, Kushina punches Minato or anything, no, Kushina's temper is just getting angry. Naruto is more like her, and the female ninjas that are mostly like his mother are Ino and Hinata. Ino, because she protected Sakura from her bullies. Hinata, because she risked her life to save Naruto. "Naruto changed me. He gave me confidence in liking myself a little more." -Hinata. Kushina, "Your father changed me and I started liking myself more." Kushina had insecurities about her red hair and hated it, until Minato said he loved it. Hinata had issues with her confidence, until Naruto gave her courage. "Don't fall for the first girl you see." Kushina told Naruto this, which would be Sakura. "Find someone like me." A lot of NS fans get this confused which is understandable. Kushina didn't mean, EXACTLY like her, she meant find someone who loves you, like me, and more. Therefore I think it should be hinata standing next to kushina or at least ino. Sorry for this long comment, I just had to throw it out there.
I MUST BE PSYCHIC!!! MUHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAAHHAHA!!! LOL JK.
Oh another thing I want to point out:
The NS fans who keep claiming that Kushina is like Sakura because of their tempers, is true but its not something Kushina is proud of and she openly expressed how she detested her temper.
Now onto Minato:
Looking at Minato's and Kushina's love past, its so much like how Naruto and Hinata's relationship is that its scary.
I guess Hinata would most likely be Minato, since Naruto is so much more like his mother and has been said to be true by: Kakashi, Tsunadae, and even Jiraiya. Hinata and Minato both stalked/watched their love interests from afar. They rescued their love interest when no one else did. They are quiet and reserved, not at all loud mouths like Kushina and Naruto.
Even if you believe Hinata is more like Kushina than Sakura, Kishimoto doesn't. He hasn't compared Kushina to any other characters other then Naruto and Sakura.
(etc. Yeah me to! Even tho I'm not really a big SasuSaku lover, I was happy to!)
The only reason, why Kishi did that, was to just please NS fans. Its a game to him. Pleasing fans doesn't necessarily mean, he is for Kushina=Sakura. Minato has only known Sakura for like three seconds, he only saw her temper, and it reminded him of Kushina's temper. Minato only saw Sakura, he has yet to meet Hinata, or another female ninja from the leaf village. Lets not forget, Naruto fits Kushina's personality. Hinata is more like Minato, for her calm side, and how she like Minato has watched Naruto from afar, and was always there for him/cheering him on.
I still have hope for SasuSaku. I mean its more likely to happen. She still thinks of him, and has yet to get over Sasuke.
Not to be rude but, do you know how much you sound like your in denial? I mean, how do you know he was just pleasing us NaruSaku fans. How do you know it's just a game to him? If Kishi was in for Kushina=Hinata, don't you think he would've done if by now, now that the manga is almost to an end? The fact is that Kishimoto has only compared Kushina to Naruto and Sakura.
Yes, Naruto is like Kushina. But what I don't understand is how Hinata is like Minato. Just because they both aren't loud doesn't make them alike. Minato is confident, he never needed Kushina as a confidence source like Hinata to Naruto. And Kushina was never Minato's number one goal. And I thought you said Hinata is like Kushina? Is she more like Minato or Kushina?
I'm not to sure about SasuSaku. Just because Sakura loves him (I still have my doubts about that tho), does it mean Sasuke has to love her back? He hasn't shown any signs of liking Sakura in a romantic light. Plus, as you know, Kishimoto works with parallels, and nothing really parallels SasuSaku or NaruHina. Only NaruSaku.
Not to be rude either, but it seems that you are the one who is in denial. Sakura wasn't accurate, and of course he is pulling our legs for now, because last time it was an NH moment, there have been more of those moments than NS. He could have angered NS fans by placing Hinata in the picture, than Sakura. ishi is pleasing both fandoms and likes to keep us guessing what his next move will be! He makes us think this couple will happen, then throws a curve ball, and places the rival (NS) pairing moment to throw the other fandom off. Like I said, Minato has yet to meet Hinata, Sakura just happened to be there.
In a way they are alike, Minato may not be timid like Hinata, but they are similar in watching Kushina and Naruto from afar, and supporting them. Loving them for who they are. UGH, I know! Its confusing, but in a way Hinata is like both of them. That's because, Kushina never knew he existed, same way Naruto didn't know Hinata existed for a very long time!
It does. We have yet to know how Sasuke feels about her, she still holds onto her love for him, even after he went crazy and tried to kill her, went evil, but now he is good, I think Sakura was the first he acknowledged when they met up again. He saved her in part 1, from going with him. If she went with him, and betrayed Konoha, she would have been killed and branded a traitor. He needed to do it alone, and he thanked her, before knocking her out. I concur, NaruHina=KushiMinato. Kishi has shoved SasuSaku in our faces pretty much through out the manga, eve when Sakura turned down that medic ninja, a while back. She said there was someone else, and thought of Sasuke. That wasn't regret, or shame written on her face, it was sadness, because the man she still loves (Even I think its a little stupid to be in love with a guy like that after he tried to kill you, etc. But its Kishi's awesome manga! ^^) is still walking down a dark path!
The most likely result will end with: NH and SS! It seems to be heading that way.
Like I've told other fans to each their own pairing.
Well of course he's doing that. In your previous comment you made it sound like Kishimoto was toying with only NaruSaku. But "there have been more of those moments than NS", do you mean more NH moments than NS? If so, then I beg to differ. So if Minato meets Hinata he'll automatically think of Kushina?
Can you please tell me where in the manga where it tells Minato watched Kushina from afar, because I don't think I saw that. Kushina never knew he existed? But don't I recall the time when Kushina said she use to look down on Minato?
By "it does" do you mean since Sakura loves Sasuke, you mean he has to love her back? Kishi shoved SS in our faces? Once again, just because Sakura loves Sasuke, he is not obligated to love her back. Same with Naruto to Hinata. Plus there hasn't been a hint of Naruto looking at Hinata romantically, only as a comrade and friend. I can't really type more then this because my laptop's being a bitch and won't let me see the rest of my comment.
Don't tell me you honestly think that after that Kishi is going too have Minato walk over to Hinata and be like "wait no you actually remind me of Kushina" because it;s not going to happen.
The reason sakura reminded him of kushina is becuse SHE reminded him of her. He didnt say it to hinata because well, to Minato her husband, hinata does NOT resemble kushina, and Minato and kishis opinions are greater than any fan who thinks hinata is like kushina because if that was true kishi would have have done the parallel.
The thing is there to initiate the battle between naruto and sasuke that kishi promised. the flash back with itachi was there for a reason too. "the person to become hokage is the one acknowledged by everyone" Naruto doest have sasuke acknowledgement that is why he thinks he is the only one who can change things. In the end I believe Naruto will gain his acknowledgement after their final battle and Naruto will become hokage.
