It's not yet known. Natsu is really clueless about love. I think he himself not yet known the meaning of love itself. So far, Natsu get along well with Lucy. And Lucy is important to him. He feel comfortable around Lucy, as he can do anything to her, like sleep in her bed, taking a bath in her bathroom, wear her clothes, etc. He care for Lucy very much, as he protected her, uproots one entire Sakura tree just for her, keep her maid outfit in his house, etc.
But someday, maybe when he get a little grown up, and after he get through so many times and moments with her, I think he will realize "different feelings" for Lucy. Not as a friend. And he will be confused by it.
For Lucy, in the beginning, she easily blushing when a guy tell her 'something sweet', just like when she blush by Loke in Loke arc, the writer in the fated meeting, and Gray (Gemini) in Oracion Seis arc. It's natural, cause Lucy is a girl who never date any guy before. And why I support and love Nalu more than anyone else? Because Mashima-sensei made their moments so many, so simple, yet so sweet. More than other couples. Example, Lucy is blushing just because Natsu thanked her. How's that thing not special? <3 As the story go further, include the special chapters on the manga, Nalu hints keep appearing, which make me sure that she has a crush on Natsu. Mashima-sensei always make the two of them together. And they have a special relationship. Not just relationship between 'friends'. Also, in the interview with Sorcerer Magazine, both Natsu and Lucy said they have the best relationship with each other.
So, for the question does Natsu love Lucy, I would say the answer is 'not yet'. But someday, I'm sure Mashima-sensei will make him understand what is love, and realized his 'different, special feelings' for Lucy as 'love'. And someday, the answer of this question will become 'yes' <3
well i personally think thats the authors intention..because if you think about it,lucy is quite a bit like lisanna.and since shes dead..lucy would kinda bring the connection from natsu and lisanna back to natsu in a way,becuz shes so much like lisanna,if u kno what i mean.i also think that they are protective of erza more because shes a main part of their group and theyve known her longer.but in my opinion i think lucy and natsu have some sort of connection,maybe just friends now but maybe more later.
Natsu not so understand about love. He only considers lucy a friend, but he becomes stronger if lucy is always close by and are very comfortable with her. But for now he is concerned with his guild. Beliefs, feelings, solidarity into true strength natsu
I don't think Natsu loves Lucy...he does care about her but to me their interactions were always friendly. Natsu generally cares about all the members about fairytail.. probably with Lucy more because she is weaker and needs more protection than the others...
...however i am a jellal/erza fan but i like natsu and erza too.... i think natsu was the most caring when he saved erza.. from the tower of heaven arc
I think he likes her as a good friend ... but not sure if as a lover!! Anyways they look cute together but I ship Natsu with Lissana ... NaLi <3 ( It is just my opinion so no hard feelings ... arigatou XD )
it's maybe....coz natsu and lucy are so close to each other....and they have most moments of all the love teams out there! maybe i am a GrayZa fan but i am a NaLu fan (but my answere is not fo NaLu) natsu don't want to hurt Lucy.... so the his other comrades too...but the best of all natsu and lucy moments is.... When Lucy fell in love with some fake salamander and the heart broke when she saw Natsu and lucy treat natsu and happy for a lunch and Natsu ate all of the foods in the table....i know Lucy never date a guy before... but for me... She already date with Natsu......
He care for her.. That is for sure.. She is important to him.. BUt The way i see this is that Natsu is to "in his own world" to think about love.. He seems to care for DRagneel more then love.. So I don't think he has those feelings at all ^^
if you go on you tube. com they have a kissing scene with gray and lucy . so i think they have a good chance
,but on the other hand they have a lot of moments where they could both tell lucy how they really feel ,but lucy and natsu have a lot more moments where you can tell he likes her .
Let me explain.First of all,Lisanna has a crush on Natsu and Natsu...None.Since Lucy came,he never is THAT close to Lisanna.Don't even think Lucy is a replacement.Natsu and Lucy's bond is stronger,stronger than anyone else.That bond is full of love and passion.I just knew it,they were meant together in the first place.Also,Childhood friends does not mean anything.Of course,he has rarely done it with other girls.But hey,Natsu and Gray,waiting for Happy's egg?(Just imagine)Impossible!So Hiro Mashima made a plan to make Mirajane's little sister.And that's only it.She is just in a friendzone.And Lucy,she is really,really DIFFERENT.Different I tell you,he rarely barges to a girl's house!He must've did that to Lisanna earlier if that'd happen(JK,but seriously).He has many as in soooo many moments with her....Of course,MAIN CHARACTER X MAIN CHARACTER!!!Am I right?Besides,they hugged in the movie as a sign of trust.OH YEAH AND LISANNA SUPPORTS THEIR RELATIONSHIP!SHE SAID"Lucy,be closer to Natsu."Sorry but I'm not bashing the NaLi couple but its true,they are meant to be together in the first place.Gomenasai!But since Hiro Mashima is still on progress,it is undecided about the NaLu moments.Lets just watch and see!THIS IS JUST MY OPINION!!!!!!!!
it is obviously 'yes" but i guess not yet. now they dont understand their feelings but later i.e after some time maybe the will fall in love and now they are just very good friends and like each other a lot like normal ppl do
Natsu definitely cares a whole lot about Lucy, seeing as he isn't afraid to die for her, He cried when he thought lucy had left the guild and he becomes really berserk and rage when someone hurts lucy or makes her cry. But he does that too when his comrades get hurt but with lucy its just more enotional i guess. And plus he there were moments when he comforts her like in a sweet way like after eclaires death. What im getting at is Natsu definitley does love lucy but i dont think they would be romanticaly involve just because it will be very awkward for me to see Natsu acting lovey dovey around lucy and Lucy acting all sweet to Natsu and not kicking him out of her house and yelling at him for being an idiot. All in all i like the way things are going between them right now :)
Okay, do you guys remember that wedding dress scene? I forgot which episode, but it was the one which Mirajane was fighting Jenny with the model competition during the Grand Magic Game.
When everyone dressed up you could see that it was hinting at the love between each of them. For example, Jet and Droy asked Levi to be their partner, but she wanted Gajeel. Now we all know that she loved him (see after the closing credits at the end of the episode where Natsu, Gajeel, Sting and Rogue were fighting where she states 'and the one I love') and this scene shows that too.
Also the Juvia, Gray and Lyon thing.
So in Lucy's case, Loke/Loki/Leo appeared and tried to take her. And for Natsu, Lisanna asked him to be her date and gets 'rejected-ish'. As well as that, Lucy falls down and lands on Natsu, both blushing as well. (At least I think they were.)
So in conclusion, NaLi and NaLu fans should live harmoniously. Jokes.
Actually, this probably means that Lisanna and Natsu probably liked each other a lot and perhaps, for Lisanna, unrequited-ly. In fact, had there not been Lucy, Natsu would have ended up with Lisanna, but there is a Lucy and they both have feelings for each other.
In the end, it is just a friggging anime, so calm down everyone and await eagerly for the next episode.
Well, I would personally say no. Because i have the same kind of relationship with people of the opposite gender like Natsu does with Erza and Lucy. We're really close, but there are no feeling of love between us :P So... Yeah, Its going on the sorta kinda iffy path :P
In my point of view Lucy has confused feelings for Natsu, Natsu makes her blush easily. But Natsu in his view takes love in a puzzled way, his first approach with love was how Lisanna treated him. As you saw/watched Natsu and Lisanna acted like a husband and wife when Happy was a egg. Natsu developed a small crush as Happy slowly developed. A bond between them was like a family.
Lucy on the other hand is known to Natsu as 'Must Protect' since, if you can remember, they are bonded by a team. All of them developing a stronger bond for each other, Natsu does not understand the way Lucy acts sometimes, as Lucy attempts to get Natsu to have a same view as her.
But all I see is a bond, a bond like a true friend. I don't see Natsu's love approaches with Lucy, I can't see love in Natsu's eyes, he is a person who is hardcore with his team. He protects his team no matter what, even at the price of his life he'll protect the ones close to him.
Sure he blushes, but a 'blush' is not straight away love. In fact a blush can also be a small embaressment, small bond or maybe a blush of passion. He may have blushed because Lucy may have shared gratitude for him.
Hug, why yes. Lucy was the one who approached a hug first. So that was not Natsu. He may have hugged back, but a hug yet again is also showing comfort.
I'm sorry NaLu fans, I do not see any Love in Natsu's eyes. Until he approaches Lucy with a loving bond, then you will see it.
EDIT: It's like Nami and Luffy, tgey are Nakamara. They protect, care for each other.
Well it is possible that they like each other or just one . However there are still more don't forget about Lisanna , but however in the manga and amine I've seen so far theres always a lead female and lead male ( lucy and natsu ) usualy fall in love such as Inuyasha and Kagome from Inuyasha considering they hated each at first but they became merried to each other in the end by their own will .
How ever the writer ( forgot his/her name XD) might have pushed a little twist using Lucy and Lisanna making us go " who is he gonna fall for ?!" .
The chances are most likely he goes with Lucy because the writer him/herself needs to look from the readers point of veiw and if he went with Lisanna what role will Lucy play ?
Nothing because her main family ( mom and dad and siblings other then Michelle which is a stuff doll)are already deceased , and then Lisanna still has Elfman and Mirajane , but if he goes for Lisanna I'm pretty sure things are gonna go down hills for her because a lot of people ( unles haters ) have already been attached to Lucy and her clumsy ways making her and Natsu at the top of the likes .
If he went for Lisanna which hasn't appeared since her return to earthland a lot , hasn't given us a chance of warming us up . The writer knows better because his/her business with this amine are gonna go down hills ASAP .
I'm pretty sure the whole Lisanna thing is getting us ( yes you too ) to go " ooo but theres Lucy what will happen to the girl he didn't choose ?" To het it juicy and addicting coz as soon as he fell in love with her really quick we would all go " boring ".
So until the amine end we won't know but I have a feeling its gonn be Lucy as she appeared with natsu more then Lisanna making them A LOT closer , but as soon as Happy butts in with the " you like her/him" I'm pretty sure their're going to have a hard time .
They seem to have a good connection, I'd say that Natsu does like Lucy, Because Natsu has always been caring for her, Even if Lucy doesn't think of Natsu that way, I think Lucy does know things about Natsu but she doesn't know that he probably likes her, Because he's childish, he likes to fight and eat and care for friends, He's not "quite" mature, But he knows how he feels, You know if he didn't understand what feelings he had he'd never be able to care for Lucy, Wendy, Gajeel, Gramps (Makarov), Gray and Happy, and Carla. It's most likely that I think that Natsu does like Lucy, Lucy doesn't know but she probably likes him back, They both have a good connection, They understand each other, They disobey each other most of the times, But they still know how to feel for each other, Even if Lucy gets angry at Natsu she'll calm down after a few seconds and realize something, Like on episode 125 (I think) She got mad at Natsu, and kicked him out of the house *Lucy kick* and then Natsu had realize what he had done wrong and decided to do right things, By just simply forgetting about it and then he just invited her on a quest job, Lucy heard from outside and she ran outside, with Natsu and Happy they both left. They both have feelings for wrongs and rights, For now I wouldn't say that he likes her even though he might, Since because Lisanna came back it's a tough choice, I started to get paranoid when Lisanna came back because Natsu and Lucy both started a good relationship, Wait! I just forgot and realized something xD
Natsu started to care more for Lucy after when Lisanna came back, and Lisanna started to care for Natsu even though he ignores it, But he still talks to her. :ooo
DUN DUN DUN, *Continues wacthing Fairy Tale*
Yes indeed Natsu has feelings for Lucy and so does Lucy. There are a lot of hints of NaLu and if you don't remember in the beginning of fairy tail the master told Natsu that "love" is important or something like that...and Natsu also hugs Lucy in the movie
Well this was a situation I had with an ex-girlfriend we were cute together but she was lost in her own world and not ready to love she didn't mature enough. This is the same story with Natsu don't get me wrong, I love the idea of NaLu, I think they are cute more perfect, but he isn't ready her he is more focused on his own world but eventually I think Natsu will end up with Lucy without a doubt that is if "Someday his luck doesn't run out." I think he might end up dying possibility would make a great ending for a great hero honestly.
I believe Natsu does like Lucy, because he is always happier when she is around. The whole Fairy Tail basically knows it, and Lucy is slowly realizing it. Natsu and Lucy are always ending up together on a mission. And Natsu hates when they aren't partners on a mission. Natsu isn't really afraid to make Lucy feel better, like you think he would. But yeah, I think he does.
natsu probably doesn't realizes this yet but he totally loves her because no body go though such lengths for a person even if fairy tail friendship much stronger than other guilds but most people is clam we some bad stuff happens with Lucy (unless she's injured) but natsu cant come down it even seems like he might go a little cray cray and do bad stuff(you know what) but natsu has a long way to go during that journey their will just keep growing! ~im rooting for you natsu,you go booooooy!
We all have fantasies of who we ship but the truth is we don't know even if we have a bucket full of evidence. As some people said, it depends all on the author and even though Mashima might have drawn more Natsu and Lucy then others or the other way around, it doesn't really prove that the shippings are correct. We might have many NaLu moments but in the end its NaLi? It's hard to discuss if Natsu does love Lucy because at the end of the day we NaLu fans might be disappointed (not to ruin your day or anything) or happy ^^. Many of us are waiting hard to find out if Natsu does love Lucy and so am I! This is just my opinion so I'm not trying to say you should stop discussing or anything else. Have a nice day c:
well he does act lik it ALOT!! but prob y hes so overprotective is becuz shes 1 of the weakest wizards (im nt trying to b a lucy h8er im jus sayin), but rlly i think natsu liks lisanna but i culd also b wrong. personally im a grayXlucy kinda fan gurl, but i guess, he culd lik luv her, but i highly doubt it but da other prt of me thinks he does luv lucy. im rlly nt sure, so NALU 4EVA
I dont care what u people say im a NatsuLisanna fan. If Lucy did not friggin' appear they would have been together. Dont u people notice that Natsu always blush when his is talking to Lisanna. He even build a grave for her.
