How Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno officially became a couple?
Numerous key characters’ romantic relationships came official off- screen in the Naruto universe. Still, one animator from Boruto Naruto Next Generations shared their clarification of how a certain couple came to live.
Reddit user u/ GenericBobbie shared the Boruto animator’s work of how they trust the two members of Naruto’s original squad seven, Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno, really ended up together. The opening panels show Naruto and Sasuke conversing on the outskirts of the Village Hidden in the Leaves. As the last Uchiha exits the vill, Sakura arrives and pleads with him to let her come on. He accepts her company, and the two begin a journey of their own.
The remaining panels do not have any dialogue and any proper clue, but rather, they show the two in flashes as they travel across harsh landscapes, face extreme threats and grow closer throughout. There are several panels that demonstrate a budding comfort and closeness between the two similar as cuddling, hand holding and eventually a tap on the forehead from Sasuke– a gesture of love that was used between him and his brother, Itachi. This simple tap initiates a kiss between the two and the chapter ends soon after. Though it is not official, it creates a strong plot for how Sakura and Sasuke could have eventually started their love.
Fans were left to wonder how multiple relationships began after the official ending moments of Naruto Shippuden. The only hints of an unborn coupling love would be from Sasuke as he starts his first of many single journeys in an effort to atone and guard the Hidden Leaf. As he goes to leave, Sakura rushes to him only to receive a tap on the forehead and a word that he will soon return. He’d compactly return to the leaf village, at least on screen, in The Last Naruto the Movie and one of the show’s Shinden bends, Konoha Hiden The Perfect Day for a marriage. Therefore, there would be no official evidence of love between the two until the appearance of their daughter, Sarada Uchiha.
