Many use this excuse to bash on Sakura that "OMG, even Kishi himself said Hinata would make a better Heroine than Sakura". At first, knowing how fond Kishi is for Sakura, seemed a little out of his way and since I wasn't involved that much with the fandom, I didn't cared about it.

But as I got involved and got into debates about Sakura, not mentioning those with the haters, explaining that Sakura isn't the type of Heroine people should expect given the fact that Kishi wants to emphasize other things through her character, this argument was always brought to me, that Hinata made a better heroine and that Kishi even stated so.

As well, not to mention I saw someone on Tumblr saying that even on Narutopedia wrote that. I went there myself. Saw it. It does. They say that in an interview from 2010, Kishi stated that.

First, they don't even know which interview. It was the Jump Festa interview 2010. I mean, if their seriousness and professionalism would be indeed, as they make it look, they would've named such a big event. We all know Jump Festa is quite popular in Japan.

Second, don't you think they should've added an official link? As long as something like this, that can twist the views of many, and we're talking about Naruto fandom here, is published, I think at least, we should've had that part included. It gives a plus of seriousness and professionalism, as I said before.

Now, because some were really concerned about this and I, personally, consider this part to be quite irritating when debating Sakura's character, I've done some researches and found the answers to that interview. When Kishi is asked about Sakura's status as a heroine in complement with Hinata, this is what he says:

周りからヒロインらしくないとかヒナタのほうがヒロインだとか言われているがやはりサクラは自分の中でヒロインなんで、これからヒロインっぽい所見せる」


Well, given the fact that I have a friend who happened to study Japanese and live there and study, for 3 years, I have asked for a translation. This is what Kishi says:

I have been told by other people that Sakura isn't acting like a heroine, or that Hinata is more of a heroine than her, but if I think of it Sakura really has the strength of a heroine inside her, and from here on out she's ready to show it, too.

He has been told by people that Hinata is more heroine than her, not that he said Hinata was a better heroine than her (Sakura). As we can see, the background reason why she would make a better heroine, is clearly fan made. No such thing mentioned in the actual answer.

Let's get facts straight, shall we? As we can clearly see, Kishi enforces the idea that the Heroine of HIS story is none other than Haruno Sakura, that she has the strength of a heroine inside her.

The "inside", could fairly mean as in determination. We all know that when Sakura puts her head into it, she can move mountains.



So, my dear Naruto fandom, before taking something for good, make some investigations. Don't fall for such things. Especially since we're talking about Narutopedia. We all know that information there can be changed quite fast by almost everyone. Add someone who dislikes Sakura and likes Hinata in there, and done! You have a false information.

Now, hope we're clear on this matter.

Thank you for your time!

I love Sakura, she's soooooo undermined by the fanbase. But I love her and she's my favorite character because her inner strength is probably the greatest in the series. And when you think about it: man people say Obito is the Naruto of Team Minato but I always pictured it being Sakura with the whole hopelessly seeking after someone who wouldn't really give a s*** over it (Rin/Sasuke) and constantly fighting to prove they can help their team. So, she could have just as easily ended up as messed up as Obito at the end of the day.

Thank. You. So. Much.

When I looked at Sakura profile on Wikipedia and saw the part 'bout Hinata would've been a better heroine, I was all like:"*sighs sadlly*why Kishi, why!"

And I really dislike it when people say that Hinata should be the heroine! I mean I like Hinata and all, but

Sakura. Is. The. Heroine!

I love this so MUCH!!!!:iconiloveyouplz:

Don't mention it, dear! I know how it is, I've been "fighting" this argument for a long time and it was really weird because as I know Kishi, he'd never say this about Sakura. He is very fond of her for God's sake. So I started researching, had someone who knows Japanese and voila, the truth!

Look, le's not take it there, ok. Hinata and NaruHina isn't that bad of a character/couple. Yes, they have many minuses, but with us, hating on them, won't resolve anything. Don't misunderstand the character/couple for the fanbase, as I am sure the fanbase is what it made you like this.
I come from NH fanbase, and one of the reasons I left NH as a ship was that, besides the obvious development of Sakura and Naruto.
So, let's be nicer, ok?
Thanks! ^_^

Asta e reaL ? Wow, deci, pana la urma Kishimoto n-a spus asa ceva. Si chiar daca a spus-o, el a "zis" Hinata ar fii o eroina mai buna pentru ca ea are un trecut mai complex decat Sakura, si nu din cauza ca Hinata are calitati mai bune. In cazul ca presupunem ca a zis.
Desi, atunci de ce a trebuit sa modifice raspunsul lui ?

Da, e real. Am gasit interviul in Japoneza dupa lungi cautari. Partea aia cu trecutul mai complex e bullshit! E pus aiurea. De ce asa? Pai ia sa ne gandim... Daca ai fi un H/NH fan de-ala, da' de-ala mai stim noi cum, tu n-ai falsifica asta? Pentru a o face pe Sakura sa arate cat mai prost si personajul tau favorit sa arate cat mai bine? ;)

Pai cel putin, pentru scriitorul mangei este clar cine este eroina adevarata ;) Si asta e un lucru bun.
Nu de aceia, dareu personal cred ca Hinata a devenit atat de populara din cauza sentimentele ei pentru Naruto. Si deasemenea, cel putin eu asa cred, ei nu urasc caracterul Sakurei, asa direct, ei incearca sa faca pe ea sa arate, asa spus "useless bi**h", fiindca sta in calea Naruhinei. Sunt singura ca daca am inlocui Sakura cu Ino de exemplu, ei tot il va uri, pentru ca sansul NH-ei s-ar micsora. Desi, fani "stim noi cum", se para ca au uitat ca defapt Sakura a fost acela care a salvat inima NH-ei, pe Hinata :)

Kishi a zis intotdeauna ca eroina mangai este Sakura. Dar cum spui si tu, sta in calea NaruHina si asta atrage foarte multa ura. Si salvarea aia a Hinatei, e una din chestiile care eu, cel putin, o folosesc ca un argument puternic. Si nu pentru ca vreau eu sa le rad in fata sau ceva, ci pentru ca este adevarat.
