Opinion post!  
Let's have a little discussion once in a while.

Yesterday I was watching the dub (yes, even though it's awful), and they showed the Hinata vs Neji episode of the chuunin exam. While I was watching Neji being such an awful jerk, I wondered what Tenten would have thought if she had seen this fight?

Neji was an arrogant bastard before Naruto "changed" him, and almost killed Hinata out of rage when she said he was probably suffering more than her. Would Tenten be disappointed in him if she saw how he acted? Bullying Hinata and all?

I think she'd feel sorry for him. Sorry he thinks this way, and sad that Hinata is right about him suffering. Maybe helpless that she can't help? I think that if Tenten is in love with him, (and we all know she is) she must have fallen in love after he changed.

What do you think?

Another thing I've been wondering about, in episode 34, (the episode after Sasuke goes psycho and breaks Zaku's arms) when Lee is talking to Sakura, Tenten is nearby and has some kind of annoyed reaction at this, and I was like "Wut? It kinda looks like she's jealous."
If you don't remember, you can watch it here: at 5:15

That was even in the manga. But what does it mean? It looks like...LeeTen hints? o_O Any one has a better explanation?

Well I think that Tenten must have had an idea about Neji's feelings toward his family by then (I don't think she would've known all about it cuz I can't see Neji confiding in her at that point). So since she had some knowledge to work on, I think she would've been disappointed and definitely shocked by his actions (cuz he was pretty brutal, you know even tho he gave Hinata a chance to walk away). But despite that, she must have known that there was something behind it (since she'd probably be used to Neji's stoic demeanour) so I guess she would've agreed with Hinata.

I watched ep. 34 and I wouldn't say that her reaction seemed annoyed (it just looked like a regular reaction to me). But if it was kind of annoyed, maybe Kishi-sama's just trying to give Lee something (I mean Neji's already got the skill, he's gonna get the girl too?! lol.) But I don't really like the LeeTen pairing myself - I got so used to NejiTen.

Btw, I read a fic that answered this question onn ff.net and it was pretty good. It's called Perspective by Mihael Keehl. Read it - it's really good.
