now look at my stupid naruto-themed icon
honestly idk why i am so attached to my I ♥ game icon, i am not even that much into games (while i do love my nintendo ds passionately), design actually came from Neen’s badge he used to wear on his bag. It had I ♥ GAME on it, but design was a bit different. I just thought it was super cute and made myself an icon.
idk it’s just so cute and yellow and i had it for whole time i had tumblr and APPARENTLY I have it for 4 years already (what) so, you all will probably get super confused if i change it suddenly
and now i have super naruto mood so here goes silly naruto themed restlye XD it’s super awkward but WHATEVER XDDDDDD
First of all, no. Second of all, no.
god, people, do you even read this manga? Or watch anime, whatever? Can you actually point out to me at least single moment when Naruto flat out IGNORED Hinata? Because I bet you can’t.
In the manga, first thing he says about her is that she looks away when he looks at her - chances are, that he took her looking away every time as a sign that she doesn’t want to be approached. He also knows that she is shy, and aware of her being nice and kind - he immediately dismisses his thought about her leading him into trap at exam, ’Hinata wouldn’t do that!’. So, no, he didn’t ignore her at academy.
Then, at the exam, he is not only doesn’t ignore her, he is actually pretty nice to her. The tone of their exchange is very kind and friendly, and when he declines her help, he also shows that he doesn’t want her to get in trouble either.
Also I haven’t saw any ignoring going on at the one-on-one matches. He accepts medical balm from her and is thankful for it (“thanks! You’re nice, Hinata!”), and uses it right away, pretty happily; later he closely watches her fight with Neji and FIERCELY cheers her on. Jumps down to see himself if she’s okay when she collapses, promises to avenge her in her blood… what is that ignoring thing you talk about?
Later, before the final matches he notices her on training field and they have a heck of adorable conversation. Naruto 1) immediately asks if she is okay after her injures 2) after two failed attempts at boasting is brutally honest with her that he only acts tough 3) takes her encouragement really close to heart. With only her words he gets a really huge bust of confidence and look on his face when she calls him strong is pretty similar to his face when Iruka places hetaiate on his forehead. He was shocked, elated and really, really touched.
THEN, after he freaking wins his match with Neji, he actually runs around thinking ‘Where is Hinata? Is she watching?’ and I still don’t see any of this ignoring business you go on about.
And even after time skip - when Naruto runs into team 8, not only he notices HIDING Hinata right away, he actually runs to her to say hi! When they break up into smaller teams to look for Sasuke, previously grumpy Naruto sweetly smiles at Hinata when he’s told that they will go together. When Hinata jumps in to fight Pain, Naruto is scared shitless for her and actually goes 6 tails immediately after she’s stabbed. After he’s back to himself, FIRST person he thinks of is her and he actually cries in relief when he feels that she’s okay. And at the war arc he also pays close attention to her - he helps her when she is in pinch, he then encourages her when she feels down, he calls out her name when all the Hyugas go in front raw to protect him, and then all this handholding happens. With him thanking her for always being by his side. And all that.
So, honestly, just shut up. Naruto never was ANYTHING but nice to Hinata, if only a little bit clueless, and with small attention span.
since i am on self-reblogging spree AND because 'but Naruto NEVER EVER EVER CARED about Hinata!’ reasoning still annoys me till no end
