Versus Momoshiki Arc
While Konohamaru, Shino, Moegi, and Udon go out for drinks and discuss the prospect of the Chunin exams, Konohamaru is unsure whether he will allow Boruto to take the exam. He claims that Boruto has relied far too much in luck so far; however, Shino disagrees with him and Moegi thinks that he should let them participate in the exam. Hanabi appears in the midst of their conversation and joins them for drinks. She listens to Konohamaru's dilemma and seems to understand him totally. After a couple drinks, both Konohamaru and Hanabi drunkenly confide in each other their affection for Boruto and how they worry at the thought of something happening to him. They heartily clasp one another's hands in agreement while a visibly irritated Moegi looks on at their antics.
- Both Konohamaru and Hanabi have bananas listed as their favourite food. Konohamaru likes chocolate covered bananas specifically, while Hanabi likes them with milk.
Among the Fans
KonoHana is a crack pairing in the Naruto fandom. It is generally shipped by some NaruHina shippers, as Konohamaru is Naruto's metaphorical "younger brother", while Hanabi is Hinata's younger sister. As a result, the two are often shipped by association of NaruHina. However, the pairing has developed a small following outside of those who do not ship NaruHina, but still think the two may work out together. It's a companion ship to MoeUdon. Their rival pairings are KonoMoegi, HanaUdon, and any other couples that includes the two characters individually.
