Why Did Hinata Go Blind

We don't know an anime fan that hasn't heard about Naruto, it's pretty unheard of even amongst casual watchers. The series gave so much to offer, and while the creator never expected it to get so big, it became a staple in the anime community that even outsiders knew the name of. There was a wide variety of colorful characters with heartbreaking or enduring backstories, each being given a chance to develop and bloom. The stories were fresh and new, but also something a lot of us grew up with. However, there was one character in the series that always seemed to have it really rough and it was none other than Hinata. This poor woman has gone through so much heartache and pain, both physical and emotional, that it's insane. We love Hinata, but perhaps it's that tragic background that makes her so wonderful; we get to see the ways that she's grown and moved beyond her past. As strong as she is, we should remind you all some of the worst things to have happened to her; and no, being married to Naruto isn't one! Here are some of the worst things to have ever happened to Hinata in the Naruto series! Neji and Hinata have a troubled past together, but that didn't mean he wasn't family to her.

Hinata still loved her cousin deeply and his death was certainly one of the hardest things she'd ever had to endure. This happens during the attack of the Ten-Tails; while Hinata is trying to protect Naruto, Neji is also trying to protect her. When he takes the fall from wood projectiles thrown at them, it's already too late. Though they tried to save his life, Neji already has resigned to his fate. As he passes, he lets Naruto know the significance he's undertaken and the lives he's now going to be responsible for, including Hinata's. This is perhaps one of the saddest scenes in Naruto. In addition to being one of the worst things that Hinata has ever had to endure, it is perhaps one of the most emotional scenes in the entire series. In the photo above, everyone is attending a mass funeral for the lives lost, Neji's included. She endured so much during the battle, trying desperately to help Naruto, but in the end was unable to protect him. There's a lot of guilt knowing he died protecting her and Hinata already feels guilty for so much in her life. When Hinata was young, she was effectively removed as the heiress to the Hyuga clan by her own father. Hiashi was a really rough character in the series and if you've watched the show, he's probably not one of your favorite characters out there.

39;s care, Hiashi was extremely rude to his elder daughter.

Hinata is a really innocent character, so when it comes to some of the tragedy she's endured, you might feel a little protective of her. This innocence, however, is exactly why Hiashi decided she was not going to be a good fit as heiress to the clan. From a very young age, her timid nature and struggle with his training methods made him see her as less than. As her worth plummeted, her sister Hanabi began to excel. She did not have any reservations the way her older sister did and, to their father, this was exactly what was needed to be the head of the clan. In the anime version, the sisters were placed against each other to give Hinata one last chance to prove her worth as heiress. She refused to hurt her younger sister, resolving in her defeat. She was given to Kurenai Yūhi, while Hanabi became the new heiress to the clan. If it wasn't enough to be later disowned by her own family, namely her father, being abused by them certainly makes it all the more tragic. While under the Hyuga clan's care, Hiashi was extremely rude to his elder daughter. Along with feeling that she wasn't suited to being the heiress of the clan, he continuously voiced his disappointment in her. Were these harsh words really necessary for a kid to hear from their own father? They certainly didn't help her or change her compassionate nature, that's for sure.

Of course, this didn't ever get better considering her father's usual routine for her. Hinata was expected to undergo a lot of training, but it was clear that she couldn't handle it. On more than one occasion, her training sessions looked more like family beat downs than anything else. Hinata has been in some of the most brutal fights and the worst of these seem to be when she's fighting against her own flesh and blood. We're glad that Hinata finally found her way out of this family by being taken in by another, but the memories still seem to affect her throughout the series. She really didn't deserve what happened to her in her very own clan. Perhaps one of the most brutal scenes in Naruto, and the most telling of Naruto's feelings for Hinata, is when the villain Pain hurts Hinata. Pain was one of the worst villains in the series with a crazed idea of ​​how to bring the world to peace no matter what the cost. During one of the craziest battles with him, Hinata desperately tries to protect Naruto.

39;s greatest strong points that proved to use some of her resilience.

This is one of the many times she's done this, only this time Pain makes it seem as though he's slain her. As viewers, we never actually saw this happen, although the audio and cut scene gave us more information than we probably asked for. For fans of Hinata, this was a tense scene where we didn't know whether or not she was still breathing. All this after she'd finally admitted how she felt about Naruto and sacrificed everything in order to protect and save him. In return, Naruto loses control of himself, revealing his Six-Tails form. While Hinata did survive the attack from Pain, this was one of her greatest scenes that showed just how much she was willing to endure for someone she cared about. In this scene was saw a new kind of strength in her. The Chunin Exams are known for being extremely rigorous for anyone trying to take them. This arc was one of Hinata's greatest strong points that proved to use some of her resilience. However, that confidence would soon be challenged when she was placed against her own cousin in a match. After passing the second stage of their exams, Hinata watches as her friends Kiba and Naruto are placed against each other. Naruto, of course, wins and Kiba is deemed the loser.

It gets a little too real in this battle.

He asks her to forfeit her match because she would be placed against either the Gaara or Neji. When she definitely gets placed against her cousin, we know it's about to be an emotional fight. It gets a little too real in this battle. Neji is a member of the Hyuga clan, but he hates the members of the main house which seems to include Hinata at first. He suggests that she listens to Kiba's advice and verbally abuses her, much like her father did, by telling her that she is destined to always be a failure. She's encouraged by Naruto to continue fighting, however Neji and Hinata's fight eventually turns deadly and causes her to sustain severe injuries to her organs. For her, it seemed like the physical pain was nothing compared to her losing. When Naruto leaves the village, Hinata is, understandably, upset. We know that she has feelings for him, but it's a little more than that. Naruto has been a dear friend to her and has always been kind. When Hinata has gone through so much, at the very least she had him. It's sad and extremely discouraging, but we know he isn't gone for good. Still, we see how disappointed she is. Naruto leaves the village to train with Jiraiya for several years in order to improve.

He vows that he will work extremely hard and she is forced to watch as he departs. It's certainly one of the smaller things that has happened to Hinata in the overall series, but it was also very significant for her. When she sees him, two-and-a-half years later, she's so embarrassed to see him she actually screams. In fact, she gets so worked up when he finds her that she actually collapses. Hey, it's a lot to take in when she wasn't expecting him to come back that day! In that moment, we probably all felt our shipping hearts beat fast because it made that separation worth it! We're just glad that, in the end, everything worked out in the best way possible for these two. The dream ship has always been there, of course. As the viewers, we know how Hinata felt about Naruto, but considering his personality, it was very likely that he wasn't going to catch on unless she spelled it out to him. Naruto can be really smart in some instances, but romance probably isn't his strong suit. Hinata has cared and doted over Naruto for years before she even got the courage to say anything. Even then, it took a life or death situation to really motivate her. A girl might like you, you just have to be equally aware of it. While it wasn't really Naruto's fault that he didn't notice Hinata's feelings towards him, that pain probably didn't go away. It never feels good to think that your crush might not like you back or ever acknowledge you.

Especially when your crush wants to become the next Hokage. That's a big dream, will they even have time to date? Now that the original series is over, we know these two do eventually get together and the heartache was a little bit worth it, but that doesn't change how it felt at the time. Poor Hinata had to go through more than your average person, but small issues like this also didn't help. During the Chunin Exams, and after being brutally beaten by her cousin in combat, Hinata decides that she is going to watch the battle between Naruto and Neji. Really, this isn't the brightest idea she's ever had in the series, but we get the sentiment. Because Naruto cheered her and heavily empowered her when Neji and friends continued to knock her down, telling her that there was no way she was going to win, she felt she should at least do the same for him. This is after Naruto confides in her that he feels he might not be able to beat Neji in their battle. Much like he originally tells her, she comforts him in saying that it's about him continuing to try until he overcomes it. He tells her that he thought she was weird, but was actually wrong and that he likes her. It's such a touching moment, but it only makes the actual battle that much worse.
