Let's talk NARUTO SHIPPUDEN, There is a big controversy in this show, The facts are simple it picks up about 2 1/2 to 3 years after NARUTO. in the series I have seen many changes in the relationships in the series. I'm not refering to Naruto, just in general. what I have seen in the series, is a theme of a 'triangle' if you would. I know the history behind this series very well but would like to hear from any of you who know anything about the series,in particular I would like to know about any ACTUAL pairings of the main or supporting characters in the series. However there are a few characters in particular I am looking to discuss in detail, they are as follows: Sasuke, Naruto, Sakura, Hinata, Ino, Shikamaru, and Temari. If any of you know anything about these characters in SHIPPUDEN, please leave any info you have in your replies. I myself currently own 24 episodes of the series and have watched up to 160 online. I am particularly interested in what happens to Sakura in the series. She is my favorite of the NARUTO girls next to Hinata. One thing I do know about her so far is she has some kind of feelings for Naruto.I'm not sure what type she has. I do know one thing, in the Manga she told Naruto she loves him,that was a protective fib or white lie to protect him and stop him from chasing after Sasuke. That's about all I know. If any of you have any info on this series,whether Manga or Anime related please put any and all info in your replies to this forum. NARUTO SHIPPUDEN is my favorite anime series currently and I would appreciate any contributions you can offer.One more fact, I am currently writing a fanfiction book based on this series, this is the second reason I need to find out all I can about the series. I have contacted VIZ MEDIA to pitch the stories to them so I need all the info I can get,anything! thanks.
