the two might have been a couple before, but naruto wasn’t mature enough to understand love.
naruto was more focused on sakura until he was 16 years old. hinata was the first to develop feelings.
It took a long time (500 episodes) for the two of them to emotionally get to the point where they accept how much they like each other and start dating.
naruto realizes that he has fallen in love with hinata later in the movie; the last one: naruto, when the two go on a mission together. they even share a kiss at the end of the movie and officially start dating. the two finally get married in the novel konoha hiden: the perfect day for a wedding.

Do Naruto and Hinata break up?
since they fell in love in the movie “the last”, naruto and hinata have not been apart. they have always stuck together despite the odds, the fights, and the fact that they have different personalities.
what episode did naruto confess to hinata?
Unfortunately, we didn’t see much of the development of Naruto and Hinata’s relationship in Shippuden and the Boruto series.
Naruto does not confess his love for her or ask her out in any of the episodes of the series. he has been completely oblivious to hinata’s feelings throughout the anime.
hinata confesses her feelings for naruto in shippuden during pain’s assault on konohagakure, but that doesn’t change the narrative much. during the battle, he gets angry and transforms into the kyuubi.
when naruto returns to his normal form after beating the pain, he can’t remember some of the events, including the part where hinata confessed her love to him.
He, however, realizes that hinata has feelings for him and loved him even when the whole town turned against him in “the last” movie.
all this happens at the end of the movie. Naruto manages to get the three words out, and the two share a kiss and start dating. later, they get married in the konoha hiden novel and have children together.
5 times naruto showed his love for hinata
Hinata’s feelings for Naruto were obvious to everyone except Naruto himself, but there were several times in the anime where Naruto showed love.
let’s review these subtle moments of affection;
1. when they were kids, naruto saves her from the bullies
naruto manga and anime series starts with the characters already undergoing ninja training and getting acquainted with all the supporting characters. the movies, on the other hand, have expanded on the past of the characters.
naruto and hinata meet for the first time in the movie; the last one: naruto. hinata becomes the focus of a gang of thugs in the middle of a wintry street.
Because of her byakugan eyes, the boys call her a monster and make her cry. Naruto steps in and defends her despite having no prior training.
He may have defended her because she was alone and defenseless, but this still shows that he cares for her!
2. he got into a fight with neji to impress her
naruto gets into a fight with neji hyuga, which basically focuses on what he did to hinata.
naruto decides to avenge his defeat by winning the battle. After defeating Neji, the first thing on his mind is whether or not Hinata saw his fight.
3. transforms into a kyuubi when he thinks he has lost her in a fight against pain
When Naruto and Pain clash in Konoha, Hinata steps in to protect the love of her life. The battle continues from episodes 144 to 151 in Naruto: Shippūden.
The pain severely injures Hinata. Naruto mistakenly believes that Hinata is dead. this ignites his anger and he transforms into a kyuubi.
His reaction was all the audience needed to know about his feelings for Hinata. It was like losing a loved one. no wonder he was willing to do anything to avenge her!
4. naruto was the first to have faith in hinata
For most of her childhood, Hinata was told by everyone that she wasn’t strong enough to be a ninja.
spent a lot of time internalizing other people’s opinions. this allowed his opinions to influence how he acted in a battle and, as a result, he lost every fight.
naruto was the first to believe in his abilities. When Hinata was chosen to compete in the chunin exams against Neji, none of the other ninjas-in-training thought he had what it took to defeat him. Naruto’s faith in his abilities kept her going!
5. he got jealous when he saw her with toneri
In the movie “The Last,” the rescue team regains their memories while on the moon to save Hinata’s kidnapped sister, Hanabi. Naruto realizes how much he cares for Hinata and that he loved her as much as she loved him.
She leaves the gang behind and decides to tag along with Toneri. naruto goes to look for her and gets a little jealous seeing her with toneri.
He says he won’t stop seeing hinata again because he fears for her safety. we all know what he meant! Naruto finally realizes his own feelings for Hinata.
naruto and hinata may not have been a popular couple throughout the naruto franchise, but they were certainly the most loved by fans around the world.
It takes Naruto a long time to understand his feelings for Hinata, but when he finally does, he seizes the moment!
