Minato and Kushina: Possible Hint for Naruto and Sakura?

    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. :laugh


    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. :wink

    A bit of evidence for NaruSku, but a very very minor one ¬___¬

    I prefer to read it as evidence of no pairing at all.

    there was also that time right after naruto turned 4 tails and was on the ground and yamoto and sakura were talking and it almost sounded like he was going to say she loved him, so yeah i agree with you this might end up being forshadowed and stuff

    LMAO oh so true. To the OP i wouldnt want Naruto getting with someone who didnt want him at first and only chose him as a second option. I would rather he gets with someone else from another village like daddy dearest or Hinata.

    Some good points, although I think the parallel between them and Yondaime + Kushina is kind of lost, because in the same chapter they talked about how Naruto is nothing like Yondaime and is more like his mother. If Naruto isn't like Yondaime, why would his partner be like Kushina? If anything, it could be reversed, so his partner was more like Yondaime, more mild-natured.

    Diddo. ¬___¬

    I prefer to read it as evidence of Minato x Kushina. Besides...

    Isn't this SasuSaku? :huh

    Actually, whoever said that Yondaime is "mild-natured"? :huh He's not a loudmouth like Naruto, but we don't have many other indications of his personality. He has the same grin as Naruto, in any case.

    Honestly, Sakura isn't even red-haired: she's pink-haired.

    well that where you get it wrong. It is said that naruto act like his mother. If we go further to assume that yondaime is the father. Then Naruto will end up with someone whole is cool and genius.

    Let me put this in a mathetical formula. Going with pararellism in past equal truth.

    Naruto = Kushina
    Sakura = kushina, Ok this is not pararell at all.

    Another Example,
    Naruto = Kushina
    Hinata = Yondaime, being cool silent, ok not genius type. Wrong!!!!!! pararellism not going to work.

    Naruto = Kushina
    Sasuke = Yondaime, Cool, silent genius type, a speed maniac that could uses same type of jutsu as yondaime.

    *Gasp*, Kishi is not hinting sasuke x naruto. Is he. Because if i be so out of here, and ask a iraqi torture expert to brainwash my brain till i forgot that i read naruto alltogether.

    I dont really think that fitted Sakura's description very well. F.example i see little evidence that she is a Tomboy. In part 1 she was an fangirl and your typical superficial teenage girl. She dress in a feminine way and have an feminine fighting form(medic ninja).

    That claim was pretty thin, IMO.

    If that's the case it would mean that naruto wouldn't be having sex with sakura till he's 50 years old.

    When I read the description, I thought about Sakura, immediately, and I thought "heh, funny how they like the same type", but I didn't think this has ANY importance pairing-wise until I saw these threads/topics.
    It's a nice "coincidence", but people shouldn't take it as a canon hint, I think. I've always thought Sakura is the most likely to end up with Naruto (if anyone ends up with him instead of Sasuke), so this doesn't really change a thing.

    I don't agree with Sakura being tomboyish or anything, but still I've seen this guy going for a girl that reminds them of their mother (even if Naruto doesn't know this) thing in so many books/movies/stories etc...

    IMO, It's not totally out of the ballpark to say that this whole Kushina thing hints at NaruSaku a little. Maybe it would be better to say that it's not surprising that Naruto feels the way he feels about Sakura.

    It's not NARUSAKU IS CANON BIATCHES but hey, it's interesting.

    well it might be that naruto got yondaime's personality when it came to picking the girl he liked - sakura or maybe wait he got naruto's mom personality to pick the cool guy - sasuke.

    The only thing this prove to me is that Naruto inherited his father taste in woman who can kick his ass. lol I guess NaruSasu is slightly hinted too in some ways not that I'm into yaoi.

    Well, the reactions was expected as such. :p

    Like I said, to me it feels that Kushina and Sakura are alike in many known aspects. And we all know Sakura has demonstrated many times the same exact reaction as Naruto, from mischief, to surprise.

    Though it's weak for what I'm about to say, but remember the old saying of how girls look for guys who are like their fathers, and how boys look for women who were like their mothers. But I'm sure someone will say, "But Naruto never knew his mother." And yet, Naruto and his mother have the same personality. And I wouldn't be surprised if many men on this forum had their mother's personality as well, I know I do. She got hers from her father as well. So guess that old saying is quite true in my life. :laugh

    All in all, I guess it was wishful thinking of me comparing Kushina and Sakura. :p

    Sakura is far, far from a tomboy. She was, for instance, meaningfully compared to a flower. All of her friends growing up were female. She obsessed about her appearance. She crushed on the hottest guy in school and got into a fight with her best friend over the guy. Sakura was the quintessential teenage girl. In no way, really, was she a tomboy. Same goes for Inner Sakura, though she was more mischevious rather than sweet and dainty.

    It proves naruto will end up with karin...

    Am sorry but i dont think sakura was tomboyish at all, SHE CRIED a lot on part 1, she and ino went to give lee/&sasuke flowers, and i think it was showed that she liked flowers, she wanted to look good for the guy that she likes...lets see what else.
    I think she was the complete opposite of tomboyish behavior.

    Tayuya now that was tomboyish or karin...

    I wouldn't say Karin is a tomboy either. Even though she does make a concerted effort to have no one find out about her desire for Sasuke, I think it's more obvious and a bit more severe than any tomboy would let on.

    *sigh* I knew someone was going to try this, the question was when. Besides that Sakura is far from a tomboy for reasons already stated. This never struck me as hint toward anything (maybe narusasu j/k) besides the fact that Kishi has given Naruto and Sasuke characteristics of their mothers.

    Sasuke via his mother's looks and core/pre-massacre personality

    Naruto via his mother's personality and jutsu style

    Hair color and same taste in women.

    I dont really see Sakura as a tomboy in the early stages of the manga or neither do i see a person with similar jutsu as naruto.

    It is just a coincidence :amuse

    Hey, you know what's closer to red than pink? Red. NaruKarin ftw!



    Or alternately: Naruto inherited his Mom's taste in spouses. He's supposed to take after her, and she married... how did Tsunade describe him? Such a nice kid, but really determined? In the Gaiden, Minato didn't come off as quick-tempered at all....

    I thought a thread on this was already made and even the OP eventually agreed it was invalid. :oh

    -Sakura is not a tomboy, nor is she "one of the boys", so unless you're only going by similar (even that a little stretch) hair color, there's not much similar between them
    -Naruto is likened to his mother, so why would he choose like his dad when it was said he's not really like him except in appearance? Following that pattern, he would choose someone like his father, who is "nice but determined", and Yondy was never shown/described as a loud mouth, hyperactive, or brash.

    Tayuya, too, probably more so than Anko since she doesn't even show off her female attributes like Anko did. :jk Plus, she was specifically pointed out to speak too "rough" for a girl (used male speech) by Jiroubu. AND SHE HAS RED HAIR, OMG NARUTAYU FTW!!!! :yell
