Among the Fans

NejiTen is a relatively popular couple in the fandom. It is one of the most popular pairings involving Neji and the most popular pairing involving Tenten. It's likely supported due to their strong friendship. However, due to Neji's death and Tenten's lack of a reaction towards his death, the couple's fandom has been dwindling significantly. It's a rival pairing to NejiHina and LeeTen.


  • Neji and Tenten have the same theme song in Part I of the anime, but Neji's theme song is more upbeat, whereas Tenten's theme song has a slower beat.
