Obviously, everyone here likes Neji and Tenten as a romantic pair. But what I was wondering is if this is a pair that is seen as possible and practical? Is this a pair formed by imagination only? Or is there evidence that points to this being a very real possibility?

I always thought that the two are something real. Neji hasn't really been seen to react to Tenten negatively (at least from what I remember!) and Tenten seems to have real respect for Neji, and maybe even a small crush. How can you not say that her getting dolled up for his fight wasn't adorable? I see Neji and Tenten having a real friendship and even a mutual respect.

So what does everyone else think about this? And what do you consider to be the best evidence for the two?

I think it's very possible - but maybe that's just me being an avid NejiTen fan... To real evidence of them being a romantic pairing, I don't think there are... but there are subtle hints of a rather close relationship between them :) I definitely agree that Neji never was seen to react to TenTen negatively and that TenTen does seem to have truckloads of respect and maybe a little crush on the Hyuuga as well :D

The best evidence? I'm not too sure... any evidence or hint that they're close satisfies me, quite enough too. But certain ones that are fun to point out is that: TenTen was training with Neji before the 3rd test of the Chuunin exam and TenTen is the support character of Neji in the first Narutimate Hero ps2 game XD

I think it's possible but, in the Narutoverse, slightly impractical. Of course, it's not like Hiashi gives a damn about who anyone in the branch family marries, but Tenten and Hiashi would not get along. [runs Hiashi over in a tricycle]

Pairing anyone together, I think, takes up a little imagination. Still, I don't think NejiTen is solely imagination. ^^ It's just taking what you see in canon a step further, being a little introspective. Tenten dresses up for Neji. Tenten helps Neji. Tenten trains Neji. Tenten is all "dude Lee don't mess with Neji or you'll get your arse kicked". Tenten is all "NO ONE MESS WITH NEJI HE ROCKS EVERYONE'S SOCKS". And yeah, I'm satisfied by the smallest, most inane canonical evidence, but still. >_> She's not just a support character--she's HIS support character, you know?

Honestly? Tenten seems like the only one that Neji can stand at all. XD If that's not proof, I don't know what is.

Seriously though, I think it could happen simply because the way they interact just makes them compatible. She seems to be the only one that he doesn't mind asking for help (judging from their training) and she certinly seems more then willing to give it. It's a relationship based on asking for and reciving support from one another, and, in my mind, that seems like a great place to start. *shrugs* That's my opinion.

Clearly, as a diehard NejiTen fan, I want them to be together. xP. But seeing the evidences, I do think that we could only hope. Yes, yes, Kishimoto did promise us romance in Naruto post-time skip, but I think the real romance will only revolves around Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura. Why? They're the main character, duuh!

Back to topic, NejiTen has above average possibility, according to my view. There are not so many evidences, but still... There are some I found in the Fated Heaven forum (A community for NejiTen fans), and I guess that the evidences stated there are really quite accurate, except most of them are in fillers, sadly.

The best evidence? No, I don't think that there is the best evidence until now, except (credits for Fated Heaven forum) that Neji imagines himself as a caged bird and Tenten means sky. Sky means freedom (not literally, but yeah, these two words could be categorized under the same group). Sooo..? You get what I mean, right? xP.

*laughs crazily*

Anyhow, I really do think that they complement each other (like what usual fluffy NejiTen fanfics point out). Tenten cares for Neji (shown that she is all quite worried when Neji fights Naruto), she believes in him, and let's just hope that Neji feels the same way.

Some NejiTen bashers say that this pairing is very UNLIKELY to go together, since they think Neji is just an ice prince without love and he's not capable of loving. I don't know about this, but I do hope he is. Ah, I'm getting quite out of topic *stabs myself and smirks*

Whether you like it or not, they are quite minor characters. Neji's role in the show is probably bigger than Tenten's, but anyway, they don't always show in every chapter, right? I just hope that Kishimoto will sincerely make them together just to satisfy us. Ah, there's always a chance he'll do that.

You guys could stop reading here if you want.

Random thing: I want Neji's hair. xP.

I think that Tenten really does have a crush on Neji. But Neji liking Tenten? I'm not sure. Haven't you noticed he pretty much ignores her?

But I've always seen it like they've known each other for a long time. Honestly, because Neji lost his father at such a young age, if he met Tenten then, he would have grown emotionally dependent on her. I kinda see them like Silver and Blaze (If you're a Sonic fan, you'll know what I'm talking about.)

But when I saw that moment at the end of Shippudden 14, THAT WAS IT. I could tell right then that it could happen. I'm one of those crazy shippers, so I know! XD
