No, it was not a boyfriend. Madara specifically said girlfriend, and then went on to say Itachi killed the girlfriend along with the rest of the Uchiha clan during the massacre.
But this raises another question... why was Itachi dating someone with the same last name as his?... I mean, I'm assuming Itachi's girlfriend was from a distant Uchiha branch family (perhaps a sixth or seventh cousin or some other distant relative... so you're barely related by blood at that point so the kids won't come out retarded), but still! That's still your kin!!! Wouldn't that be kind of awkward at a family reunion? "oh, you guys remember my seventh cousin/ wife, Cali." XD
Or at least, Itachi, I'm hoping it was a distant relative (for the sake of the possible kids not coming out mentally challenged) and not a first cousin (who would produce you 'der' retarded children). Well, Itachi, I'm waiting. Fess up.
itachi does have a girl friend i hear that the creature of naruto kishimoto masashi is actually going to mak itachi's gf an important part in the anime i hear this from a friend who lives in japan i believe her name is still being chosen , it is said she will not die itachi does not kill her it's either she kill's with itachi or she's on a mission when it happens i'll find out more from my friend back in japan hopes that helps hear's a pic of her (or alest i thing this is what she's going to look like) spread the word! this is not the confurmed pic but till they find a name and a look for her this will have to do......
In traditional Japanese Culture--which is the setting of Naruto series--, there have been a tradition to married with their own clan member to keep the blood relation 'pure'. It's make sense, because Uchiha clan was the one of those which really traditional and strict about their status as the mightiest clan in Shinobi World. This condition is especially important for the next clan leader, and according to Mikoto Uchiha, "Itachi was older than Sasuke, the elder son of the clan leader...so that's why he will take the position from his father and watch over the clan in the future".
So..The most plausible reason about this 'lover' thing, especially if you mention how old Itachi is at that time, it was an 'arranged marriage' made by his clan.
Tobi only told sasuki that he he killed his girl friend........never told who........
she is dead.........so she cant be those girl u guyzzz suggested..........my guess is she is from uchiha........itachi only slaughtered uchiha Clan
excluding sasuke on that night sooo she got to be an uchiha............
sooo no one know abt her,....her identity becomes a mystery.........a mystery girl with a tragic love story...........
Itachi does not have a girlfriend, and really girls it isn't going to happen. Fan girls he is not a man to clam. Just because your his fan doesn't mean he's your boyfriend! I am a fan lover too and I can't just go up to anybody and say "Itachi is my boyfriend" even if it's in my username. So stop daydreaming! Get a life and move on! My answer is that Itachi does not have a girlfriend.
Yes,by what i have looked up and read i do think itachi has a girl.Madara did say he also killed his lover so that is one big clue.If itachi did kill her with the killing of his clan i think it was to proect her from beaing hated or shuned.or it was is if she followed him to the akatsuki should could get killed and he mostlikley didnt want that.
"You couldn’t see through Itachi at all. You couldn’t see through his illusion. But Itachi… Had killed his friends, his superiors… Had killed his lover and his Father and his Mother… The only one he couldn’t kill… Was his little brother. The man who cried tears of blood as he smothered his emotions and killed his brethren… Couldn’t bring himself to kill you.” - Madara to Sasuke
He did have a girlfriend. And yes, he did kill her on the night he killed his clan. Evidence is above~!
