Hinata has always adored Naruto, from the beginning to the end. She admired him from afar at first, shy and unrequited. She has stood by him throughout the years and fans have been rooting for them since the beginning.
Despite the fact that their stories were parallel and viewers saw far more of Naruto than Hinata, it was always understood that Hinata would love him no matter what. Through the small moments that were shown in the anime, Hinata spoke not only to the boys watching the anime but also to the girls who are just beginning to understand what love is all about.
When he stopped her from being bullied, she began to admire him. He was still hated by everyone in the village at the time, and he had very little chakra control. Even though he was at a disadvantage, he placed himself in danger for her. This was a heroic move that Hinata would remember for the rest of her life. It helped her to define the fact that she knew he was a good person who was misunderstood by the majority of people.
Even though she was frightened throughout the series, she still did thoughtful things for him. This can be seen in the ointment she made for him to use if he was harmed during the chunin exams. Naruto pushed her to speak out for herself and achieve the self-assurance she needed to be her own person. Prior to then, she had been trapped in the customary role that the Hyuga family had assigned her as the family’s heir. The simple act of Naruto cheering her on during her battle with Neji gave her the strength to keep fighting.
Then she makes an admirable but impulsive decision in Naruto Shippuden. She jumps to where Naruto is caught with Pain’s black receivers in the episode “Confession” to assist him in his hour of need. Naruto begs her to flee for her own safety but she tells him that she will never abandon him. When it comes to her nindo or ninja way, she is just as stubborn as he is.
After the Infinite Tsukuyomi was unleashed and those locked inside were dreaming of their perfect world but Hinata had a simple dream where Naruto was someone she wanted to spend time with. It’s a captivating sight and one that didn’t seem all that impossible.
Once the world was restored and they were all grown up, he asks her to marry him in The Last: Naruto The Movie but she sacrifices her happiness in the movie so that he can survive, which is a selfless act that is rarely considered. Fortunately, they are able to reunite and vanquish the threat from that movie as a couple, sealing their fate as a couple and finally marrying.
Hinata displays her affection for Naruto within Boruto series as well. Naruto is now the Hokage and is raising two children, Boruto and Himawari. Technically three, including Kawaki. Hinata takes up the role of mother, despite Naruto’s need to work long hours to keep the village safe.
It’s refreshing to observe a relationship in which neither partner begs for more time together because they understand the importance of the work they’re doing. She never complains about how much time he spends working; instead, she makes his bed, feeds him, and loves him in a way only she can. She is a desired partner in the way that she fully supports him. It isn’t the most realistic love but it is one that many fans dream they could have.
