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?

i dont think it's jealousy. It's more like... a typical confused!Tenten looking at Lee who just grew another head. It's a normal reaction, and personally, I don't think that the odds between LeeTen and NejiTen are 50/50... it rises above 70 in Neji's favor.

Come on. The waterprison scene is almost a give away. Why the hell would Kishimoto even bother to draw a tab that involves Neji holding her up when she could've just squatted on the water-floor, right?

On that same note, why did kishi let Lee catch Tenten during the Chunin exams during the preliminary battle in her fight against Temri which she so horribly lost?

at that time neji was sort of an emotionless (depressed angry ext.) person though and the relationship betwwen lee and tenten is more like a brother and sister wouldn't you say so?
like for example my brother annoys the heck out of me but if someone tried to hurt him i would have started knocking some heads even though i have no idea of how to! XD

omg big font o.o

If you ask me, it's all for the sake of emotional build-up for the Lee vs Gaara fight.

Why did Lee catch her, you ask? It's simple: Tenten was unconscious and Temari had thrown her where she would have landed on her own weapons. Lee saved her from being impaled on these pointy objects. I don't think it was a LeeTen hint, but then again, someone else might argue that if it wasn't, why hadn't Neji reacted first? Honestly, I think Lee moved faster.

I agree with both sapphireluna's and your reasons! Well-said to the both of you! :)
Sapphire Lunasapphireluna on November 27th, 2007 09:17 pm (UTC)
Because she was half-conscious and would've fallen in the water if he hadn't?
カイロンスターchironstar on November 28th, 2007 05:56 am (UTC)
To make up for not catching her in the Chuunin exams, LOL.

(Nods in agreement with chironstar) It would seem so... XD lol

(Your icon is so cool. *_*)

LOL, that's what I've been telling myself ever since I saw that bit (what can I say, I'm a big NejiTen fan).

Why thank you. I do think my avatar's cool. XD (You can copy and paste it if you want.) I've been telling myself the same thing, too. Being a NejiTen fan, I always had a soft spot for the pairing. Lee and Tenten's relationship just seems more like a sibling one, like several people said.
カイロンスターchironstar on December 1st, 2007 11:01 am (UTC)
Awww ... thank you so much! ^_^ It's currently sitting on my desktop and I'm admiring it. :)

And yes, exactly that! I've always seen Lee and Tenten's relationship as more like one between siblings, with Tenten like an older sister. I can't wait till the moment Team Gai comes back - it's been so long since they last made an appearance...

You're welcome! Waiting for Team Gai's appearance? Same here! I really want to see them again, but alas... For now I must be content with fanfiction! XD
