Yeah, and he couldnt hold onto her hand all the time. Inuyasha holds Kagome, and he lets her go to fight, and they get married at the end of inuyasha :3
I’m not sure if Kishimoto will go that route because of InuYasha. However, chapter 616 was not a troll or an Anti-NaruHina moment for numerous reasons:
Naruto’s hands do not determine how he feels about Hinata. No one knows how he feels about her; he hasn’t response to her confession yet. And why do we expect to right this minute? We’re in the middle of a giant war; it’ll be inappropriate for them to make out while everyone’s dropping like flies.
The holding hands part is not what developed NaruHina last chapter. Hinata staying strong for Naruto-even after crying over her cousin’s death-reviving him from his mental breakdown and Naruto admires and acknowledges her support. “You were always by my side” remember? THAT’S THE REAL NARUHINA MOMENT.
Whether it’s lovers screaming “CANON” or haters saying “HAHA! You got trolled!”, both sides are forgetting it’s only one chapter. The manga isn’t over and nothing is endgame yet.
