(These were capped from the original Naruto anime. The barefoot scenes are from episode 148 but I also tossed in a few from episode 46 showing off Hinata's mad Byakugan Skillz. Massive Thank yous to both Hinata-Chan and another blogger for tipping me off to this episode as well as the Match25 (the Legendary Master of Sole Shots) for finding a clip for it. Great Job Everyone!!!)
In addition to her awesome ninja skills and cool bloodline abilities, Hinata has such a sweet personality that its really hard not to like her. Eventhough she's very soft spoken, she demonstrates a lot of courage and determination throughout the series. I really admire her very much for striving to do her best to constantly improve herself. Of the female characters in the series, she probably understands Naruto the most and one of really touching scenes for me in the anime is when she is shown watching Naruto train hard after he gets made fun of by the other ninjas for his lack of ability. I think that even people who aren't fans of a Naruto/Hinata relationship, find themselves rooting for Hinata's affection toward Naruto to be returned one day. Hinata's such a nice and kind character that I think alot of us would be really happy to offer her a foot massage after a busy day of ninja work. She probably would really appreciate it a lot as well.
The water scene from these episodes kind of reminds me of Sailor Mercury's transformation. ^_^ If only they had more fanservice scenes like that in the series. In terms of costumes, I like Hinata's outfit after the time jump a little bit better, (I think she looks cooler with long hair) but I love how she wears her headband around her neck like a choker, it looks really hot. Those ninja girls really know how to accessorize. ^_^
Ok everyone...have a great day and as usual...more to come soon!!
