Farewell, Hinata?

Each week we get spoilers for the latest manga chapters of Naruto. One of the spoilers for this week was that Hinata was killed by Pain. Of course many thought this was fake, myself included. Surly the author wouldn't kill of my favorite female character in Naruto. Well, the truth hurts and it seems that's exactly what he did.

Naruto has had a crush on Sakura since his days in the ninja academy. She was the only girl he had eyes for and she couldn't see him for dust and at the start of the series, she treated him like crap. Why anyone would still be interested in a girl like that is beyond me. Hinata has had a crush on Naruto for the longest time and I'd always wondered if and when she'd admit her feelings to his face. Well she finally did. And she didn't just tell Naruto that she likes him. Hinata told Naruto that she loves him. Naruto is clearly stunned by her words. After this revalation, she is killed off panel right in front of Naruto.

I wanted to scream out "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!" when I found out this once thought fake spoiler was true. Though I am (perhaps foolishly) hopeful that Hinata is still alive. I mean, characters in this series have survived fatal injuries when they should have kicked the bucket.

Hinata looked glorious in this chapter. Her speech she gave and her confession to Naruto were very heart-felt. He finds out that Hinata has loved him all this time and she's taken away from him in the blink of an eye. I think the last time I was this bummed when an anime manga character died was Maes Hues in Full Metal Alchemist. Again, that is assuming if she's dead. I really hope Kishimoto is screwing with us here.

I was about to cry until I read fake, and that made me remember when they made the King of Akatsuki L/Ryuuzaki/Ryugai Hidaki from "Death Note". That one is funnier than Naruto's father being the king of Akatsuki

If she dies I'll cry, but I'll cry more if poor TenTen dies

Yeah, hopefully her and Kakashi are okay.

Read the last few chapters, so please don't be angry with these spoilers if you didn't:

"Hinata actually get's heavily injured, but she remains alive, Ino's father & co. take her with them to a tower for dead people where skin on bones Nagato controls all his pains from and send the on Naruto."

I have to admit: You guys are weirdo's "Tommy & You" (No Offence, we're all weirdo's); current "status quo" Spider-Man sucks & this trash is good? I wanted to kick everyone telling me Spider-Man sucks and enjoys Naruto because they bug me, I like Naruto but the last couple of chapters are definite trash
