Hinata dating games
By that point in the series though, Naruto no longer saw himself as saving a damsel in distress, but by “returning the favor” since Hinata had saved him as well.Despite his insistence that he will become the next great Hokage repeatedly in the series, Naruto tends to make a lot of mistakes. It’s his persistence that makes Hinata believe that she too can become a great warrior, despite what her family thinks about her, even commenting that he made her believe she was “worth something” in the manga.
In turn, when Naruto discovers this about Hinata, she also inspires him to keep going when he loses faith in himself.The more he drilled his own ideas into her head though, the further Hinata shrunk into herself.Hinata spent much of her childhood and ninja training with everyone telling her that she wasn’t strong enough to become a ninja.As a result, the remaining candidates competed in one-on-one matches to narrow the field by half.
When Hinata was selected to battle her cousin Neji, none of the other ninjas in training believed she has what it took to beat him.She looked to find a way to stand up for herself the same way Naruto did.
