It would be impossible for anime and manga fans not to know Naruto. He is the protagonist of the anime and manga who uses his name as the title. There are two main parts of Naruto that new fans should be aware of: Naruto and Naruto Shippuden.
The whole story revolved around the life of Naruto, a shinobi or ninja who wanted to get the recognition of his village. The manga mostly focused on Naruto’s journey as he became a hokage while saving himself from the Akatsuki, a group of villains whose mission is to get all the tailed beasts. Surprisingly, Naruto has the Nine-Tails, which is the strongest among the tail beasts.
Since Naruto is a shonen manga, it did not really tackle much on love interests. Although it has been a known fact that Naruto is in love with his friend and team member, Sakura, did he end up marrying her?
Who Does Naruto Marry and End Up With in the Manga?
For those who ship Naruto and Sakura, the answer is no. Naruto did not end up with Sakura, instead, he ended up with Hinata. Hinata is one of Naruto’s classmates who adored him from afar. Her affection towards him was quite obvious throughout the manga. Ever since they were kids, Hinata has always cheered and supported Naruto. She was one of the few people who never thought of him as a monster.
Naruto and Hinata Love Story
Naruto didn’t actually think of Hinata that way before. She was the kind of classmate who was just quiet, Naruto oftentimes thinks that she is weird. But during the Chunin exam arc, Naruto witnessed how Hinata lost to her cousin, Neji, and he vowed to win for her.
The two had small cute interactions after that, and even the other characters were aware that Hinata has feelings for Naruto. Another important interaction was during the Pain arc. Hinata rushes to Naruto’s side after he was pierced to the ground by Pain, and this was the scene when she confessed her feelings to him.
Years later, Sakura helps Hinata confess her feelings once again by creating a scarf for Naruto. Unfortunately, Hinata’s sister was kidnapped so Hinata, Naruto, Shikamaru, and Sai were set to find her. During this time, the couple spends more time together where Naruto finally realizes his feelings for her.
A special novel was then released entitled, The Perfect Day for a Wedding. This contains the big wedding day of the couple. The love story of the two was further developed during Boruto: Naruto Next Generations where the couple had a son and daughter.
