Do Sasuke and Sakura Kiss? Yes, But Not in the Anime!

Do Sasuke and Sakura Kiss? Yes, But Not in the Anime!

Despite the fact that Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha are the focus of the Naruto series, Sakura Haruno was both the series’ main female character and the third most important character in the series, along with Hinata. Sakura was a skilled kunoichi and master healer, but this article is not going to be about her skills but rather about her private life. We know by now that Sakura Haruno ends up with Sasuke Uchiha in the series, but their relationship is anything but ordinary. In this article, we are going to explore whether Sasuke and Sakura actually kissed in the series.

Because Sasuke and Sakura had Sarada Uchiha, a daughter, it is obvious that they kissed at one point in the story. But, it is also true that no such scene was shown in the manga, mainly because Sasuke was such a character that he would not have liked for others to witness it. But he is very emotional and sensible, and the kissing scene was even confirmed in a dialogue from the Sasuke Retsuden: The Uchiha Descendants and the Heavenly Stardust light novel.

The rest of this article is going to focus on the relationship between Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno. We are going to bring you the details of this relationship, how it evolved, and how it was formalized, including the details about their kiss, which had fans going crazy. This is mostly an article about known facts from the series, so there won’t be too many spoilers for old fans of Naruto, but some new details will be revealed.

Do Sasuke and Sakura ever kiss?

The relationship between Sasuke and Sarada has been a complex and puzzling one. Their love was obvious from the very start, but their relationship was quite out of the ordinary. We will revisit that later in the text, but we simply had to mention it here because it plays a pivotal role in understanding why we’re discussing this question in the first place.

Namely, when two people are in love, they’re bound to kiss at one point in the relationship. This is completely normal. And while shonen anime aren’t all that open to tackling these aspects – there are a lot of such couples, but you rarely see them kiss (Naruto and Hinata are a truly rare exception, but we had to wait for a movie to see it) – these things are either implied or “seen” off-screen (e.g., when it was obvious that Serena kissed Ash in Pokémon, but it wasn’t shown on the screen, because the scene changed to a view of the sky or something). But when it came to Sasuke and Sakura, nothing was implied, and nothing could be taken for granted because their relationship is so odd and different.

It was obvious that Sasuke and Sakura loved each other, but with Sakura being shy about expressing her emotions and Sasuke being introverted as he was, nothing was certain with the two, and we really did need some confirmation to be sure that everything happened according to everyone’s expectations and that Sakura and Sasuke did, indeed, end up together. This was officially confirmed in Boruto when it became obvious that Sasuke and Sakura were married and had a daughter, Sarada Uchiha.

But what about the nature of their relationship? Okay, since they had Sarada, they definitely had to have kissed at one point; otherwise, it would be quite silly, but it’s Sasuke, so you never know. Still, Sasuke has proven to be very emotional and sensitive. Over the years, as the story progressed, while remaining an introvert, he started to open himself up, little by little. He is still very introverted and always looks either angry or completely emotionless, but that is very far from the truth, as he is a caring person who can be quite gentle to those who are lucky to see this side of him.

But now that we have confirmed that Sasuke and Sakura did kiss at one point, we should give you some details, right? Well… we don’t have any. Namely, Sasuke and Sakura kissing was absolutely never shown anywhere. Not in the manga, especially not in the anime, and not even in the Sasuke Retsuden: The Uchiha Descendants and the Heavenly Stardust light novel, where it was actually mentioned. Namely, the second Retsuden novel that was released does confirm that Sakura and Sasuke kiss, but it was not illustrated, so there is basically no scene (either drawn or animated) showing a kiss between Sasuke and Sakura.


Does Sakura Like Naruto? Here Is Their Story!

Sure, as we have said, we can now confirm that the two of them have kissed, and the story also confirms it, but it was never explicitly shown. On the other hand, this makes complete sense from Sasuke’s and Sakura’s point of view. And while Sakura has always been more open than Sasuke when it comes to the outside world, even she was not willing to go gung-ho with her emotions for Sasuke; it just wasn’t in her nature. That was something very intimate and something very dear to her, and she liked to keep it as hidden as possible.

As for Sasuke, this is completely normal. He is a guy who doesn’t reveal much about himself to others. In fact, if he could go on without revealing anything, that would be great, as far as he is concerned. This does not mean that he is ashamed of his emotions but rather that he doesn’t like revealing his private thoughts to others. This is absolutely normal for him, and he is not someone who would display public signs of affection, but he is definitely very gentle and loves Sakura very much.

And this is the story of Sasuke and Sakura kissing. The Sasuke Retsuden: The Uchiha Descendants and the Heavenly Stardust light novel helped answer some questions that had been bothering fans for some time. Although we still haven’t seen anything official here, – at least – we now know what happened and how it happened. What we are going to tell you before we wrap up this article is the nature and evolution of the relationship between Sasuke and Sakura.

What is Sasuke’s and Sakura’s relationship like?

Sakura’s relationship with Sasuke changes throughout the series. After Sasuke leaves Konoha, Sakura pleads with Naruto to bring him back, believing that he is the only one capable of doing so, which he promises to do. Knowing how tough this task will be for Naruto and inspired by his determination, Sakura decides to become Tsunade’s apprentice in order to become stronger so she can help Naruto bring Sasuke back. During the Meeting of the Five Kages, Sakura confesses to Naruto that she loves him and claims to not care about Sasuke, wanting to make him renounce his promise to her. However, Naruto doesn’t believe her words and says that she is lying to herself, claiming that he knows her better than that. This ruse is later confirmed by Sai.

Sakura deeply admired Sasuke Uchiha at the start of the series because of his appearance, shrewd and chilly demeanor, and amazing talent. Because of this, many of Sakura’s early appearances center on her ongoing quest to win her love. She learns that Sasuke is not the boy she had always imagined as she gets to know him better throughout the course of the novel.

Sakura later starts to worry that Sasuke would one day desert her and the rest of Konoha in his pursuit of power as a result of what transpired during the Chunin Exams. Sadly, her fears are realized at the conclusion of Part I, and despite her best efforts to stop him—including declaring her love for him and inviting him to join her in her quest for retribution—she is unsuccessful. Sasuke praises her sincerely, but he knocks her out before leaving the village.

Since then, Sakura has made it her personal mission to reunite Sasuke back with Naruto; as time passes, this facet of her character becomes recurring. But as Sasuke develops into a more deadly criminal, she realizes that he must be stopped by all means, though she later regrets it greatly. Sakura is heartbroken to witness the depraved and evil monster he has become when she is reunited with Sasuke after Danz’s passing, and she decides there is only one way to stop him: by killing him.

She eventually musters the courage to do it, but her affection for him prevent her. Since that time, Sakura has come to terms with the fact that Sasuke can only be saved by Naruto. It is evident that she is still in love with Sasuke regardless of the fact that she is heartbroken to witness what he has become and regardless of the fact that he attempted to kill her. Kakashi discovers during the Fourth Shinobi World War that Sakura’s love for Sasuke has evolved over time and that despite everything that has transpired, she is stronger than before.

One day, at the entrance of the village, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi were there, as the Uchiha would go on a trip to see the world. After the Hokage said a few words to her, Sakura began to speak, asking if she was leaving since Tsunade was about to finish the prosthesis for his arm, made from Hashirama’s cells.

Sasuke tells her that he has to see for himself what the world looks like, saying other things. Sakura asks him what he would say if she says that she wants to accompany him, to which the Uchiha responds by saying that it is a trip to atone for his sins and that she cannot get involved, proceeding to touch her forehead in the same way that his brother Itachi did to him.

He then left, saying that he would be back soon, and thanked Sakura for everything. Sakura, blushing, sees how Sasuke walks away from her, but she is happy because she knows that he will return. The years passed after the end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Sakura married Sasuke, and they had a daughter, Sarada Uchiha.
