Hinata is shy, just like Sawako. But unlike Sawako, she doesn't neccessarily have a popular dude who cares about her deeply and is fascinated by her. Although, in two places in the Orinigal Manga, Naruto DOES mention Hinata specifically. Once after the battle with Pain/Nagato, and again after talking again with the frogs and their leader about Naruto's destiny and how he can't control the Kyuubi/Nine-tailed Fox.
Well, CH.490 of Naruto is out now. Check it out. I think it's the one with Naruto talking about how he can't seem to control the 9-tails Kyuubi. That's the one where, like I said before, Naruto mentions how he got so angry when Hinata was killed (Not sure if she was killed. She is still alive. Nagato revived everyone so, whatever.).
