Not actually. You claim simple is bad. I believe simple is simple - not inherently either or. The merits of the character dictate that, and Hinata has more positive merits to her than negative.>And a main character and on the same team as him.
And? Are you saying the protagonist has to end up with his female deuteragonist? Otherwise of course Sakura is going to be center stage. But her obsession with Sasuke was shared with quite a few other girls. The only unique thing about her was that she was on a team with two other protagonists and realized she was going to get left behind if she didn't shape up, but that could have very well been another girl realizing that.
Like Hinata, who had already found inspiration to change. In Naruto.>Because that's not a character, that's a trophy.
I'm not going to say feminist, but why is that a bad thing? We know Hinata is more than a trophy - hell, in the example I gave, a farmer's daughter is more than a trophy. She can take care of herself, treats those she loves right, and has faith in her husband.
A trophy does literally nothing but get shown off, and Hinata doesn't do that.
