After watching all the Springtime of Youth and then Road to Ninja and even some main anime episodes, even as a NejiTen supporter, I'm finding it hard to explain Neji's behavior towards Hinata. I mean, Springtime of Youth isn't canon I guess, but it's so full of NejiHina moments--kinda.
Some things I assume is just Neji being over-protective because he cares about her...but when did that happen? When did Neji suddenly develop such strong feelings for Hinata? Sure he gained respect for her over time, but this is just too much. I don't think he's in love with her, but he sure has a sister-complex. But some scenes I'm at a lost to defend his actions. Like all that blushing, peeping etc.
He never does that with Tenten lol
What do you think?
