From the creator of the highly applauded Whirlpool Country Location theory, now gives you a speculative and highly controversial theory: Did Kishimoto in Chapter 367, give a subtile hint of Naruto ending up with Sakura? Now we all know how "popular" Pairing Threads are (/sarcasm) and I'm sure this thread sooner or later will turn into a pairing war, which is not my intent. Trust me, I been in enough of those to not want to go near them with a 100 foot pole. But the thing that has been bugging me since the spoiler's release on Thursday, is how Jiraiya described Kushina as being a Red-Haired tomboy, who later grown up to be a beautiful woman. And as soon as that was said, many automatically thought of Karin and immediately started connecting her, Pein, and other red-heads to Naruto's family. However, it seems that description could've fit Sakura as well. Afterall Karin's model looks almost identical to Sakura's, except of the obvious outward differences (clothes, haircolor, hairstyle, glasses). Though Sakura doesn't have the obvious red-hair like Karin, pink hair is pretty darn close. Also, Sakura's attitude does appear that of a tomboy, and let's not forget that sometimes Sakura's attitude is identical to Naruto's (who we all know that he got that from his mother). Furthermore, to those who frequent the Theory section might recall the Kushinada theories of months ago, where many were aruging the connection to Susanoo to Sasuke. Many SasuSaku members argued the connection between Princess Kushinada and of course... Sakura Haruno. Now that we know Naruto's Mother is directly connected to the Kushinada theory, I honestly can't help but to think back to people's connection to Sakura in regards to that theory. And Kishi is well known for double meanings throughout the manga, like the mentioning of "Isan" when describing Naruto back when Itachi made his grand apperance. Call me crazy, but to me, it could be that Kishi very well is giving us a small hint that Sakura could very well end up with Naruto. (Remember, Kishi is also fond of parallelisms as well as foreshadowings). The Red Hair to Pink Hair, them both having tomboyish appearance, how Kushina grown up to be beautiful, while Sakura was commented being beautiful (by Jiraiya of all people). And of course the quirky personality. Not to mention the coincidence of the Kushinada connection. Coincidence, or just wishful thinking? You be the judge.
