To this day I considerably do not understand what I was supposed to like about this character
Even her feet were inferior to Hinata's.
Not only does he not come back, he doesn't even get in touch with his kid in all those years despite having a cellphone, a ninja hawk that regularly takes letter back to Naruto and a thousand different bullshit powers that would effortlessly allow him to visit his 'family' with ease while still doing his mission.
Kishi is a terrible writer.
This is the explanation for everything in Naruto.
Including why everyone considers Hinata to be such a good 'heroine' in comparison, because he wrote her so little she didn't have a chance to be decayed by his terrible writing abilities, and others writing stuff like The Last or the anime filler managed to give her stuff to make her lovable (Hell even Sakura was more likable in that movie)
Well the adults hated him because hurr fox but the others in his age group hated him cause he acted like a dumbass (admittedly for a reason) and was weak as fuck.
Unsurprisingly once he stopped acting like a dumbass and trained seriously, he got his real friends that aren't Sasuke.
It makes no sense that everyone hates him and especially the he's ALL ALOOOOOOOOOOOOONE BOOHOO"
He's literally the spitting image of the worshiped Fourth Hokage who had a heavily pregnant wife just before they died, how exactly is it that NO ONE knew he was the fourth's son?
And why the fuck did the 3rd Hokage not look after him in his household, instead leaving him alone to fend for himself?
Also it was later revealed that Jiraiya is a complete shitbag, despite being the kid's official godfather he never did anything to take care of Naruto (though he was more than ready to look after random orphans he came across) and only randomly started teaching him ninja when he ran into him years later by coincidence (and yet he barely taught him anything over the timeskip meaning Naruto had to go on yet another training arc soon after).
Hell, who the fuck took care of Naruto as a baby?
Everyone did hate him for almost a third of the series. Then he saved their asses on more than one occassion. Kishi's writing may be shit but that was one of the good things about the series.
Adults knew that hes the reincarnation of the nine tailed fox or whatever so they ostracized him. Especially since alot of them lost loved ones and their leader during the attack. I dont think theyd give a damn how he looks like.
Way to ignore everything else in the post. Plus everyone knowing he's one with the demon in him makes the fact he was living on his own even more stupid.
If he was living with the 3rd Hokage he would be better protected from people trying to jack the Fox.
Let's be real Sakura is best girl and that's why she gets so much hate. Pink hair, nurse, sign me up Boyyy. Pluss she is one of the strongest ninja now. Why don't you guys Sakura?
I ignored everything else because I dont remember those parts of the plot and if youre right then jiraiya and the third were kind of shitty for leaving him to grow up alone. I think some people took care of him because they didnt give a shit as long as they got paid or whatever. Its conceivable. But youre right, the best solution wouldve been to have one of the two raise him, not just leave him on his fucking own.
This is how best girl Sakura cools off. Stop acting a hipster fuck boi and get on the Sakura train.
Why? What if her character depends heavily on other characters and sowing and resolving conflicts with them instead of being likable? She's basically caught between Naruto and Sasuke with little charisma of her own so it'd be a miracle if she came out looking good.
Yeah. I actually started liking her then, but then she got fucked up and everyone got fucked up and I hated the entire thing and dropped the managa. Went back to read the final chapter just to see how that clusterfuck ended.
Best girl Sakura needs many men to satisfy her needs. She's a pink haired God of truth. Stop drinking that hater water.
Everybody thinks Sakura is finally going to be a good character during the Rescue Gaara arc and Kishi got his shit together and then literally the next arc she goes back into full retard
We would be here all day to fully describe Kishi's failing with the Sakura character.
The only pluses for her are her character design (though Kishi got pretty lazy drawing her hair in the latter half of Part 2) and that she got by far the biggest power up during the first time skip. She went from the weakest ninja in the series to a mini-Tsunade. However, that is part of the problem since she never has any unique skills or abilities. Kishi just copied and pasted from Tsunade to Sakura.
Also, her family is nonexistent in a series that becomes obsessive about family, she never develops past or expounds or gets over her crush on Sasuke. Even Naruto, the most Sasuke-hungry fucker in the series, isn't nearly as hollow a character as Sakura if you take away Sasuke-lust. Bitch has got no other goals or aspirations besides landing Sasuke.
This might not be the biggest deal if Sakura was a background character like Hinata, but she is one of the 3 main characters, so drags the whole manga down with her uselessness.
She wasn't written to be a good character, she was written to be a teenage girl (who also happens to be a ninja). She's constantly feuding with her ex-best friend over a bad boy. Then she matures. She grows into a woman and becomes more responsible and stops living life for other people (specifically Sasuke). The whole cutting off her hair thing was overdone but poignant. She grew it out because she heard Sasuke liked long hair; so did Ino. It symbolized her petty and childish feud with Ino which got in the way of her work as a ninja as it was stupid impractical and ended up getting caught. When she puts being a ninja over being a stupid teenage girl, it shows maturation.
All you really need for a good character is a good arc. You need them to mature or change somehow, not to be likeable as a person 100% of the time. Sadly her development kind of petered out altogether and she was carried along with feminist affirmative action to remain relevant.
Pls watch this
Some of them probably knew, but all of them knew he had the kyuubi inside of him which destroyed their village and killed a bunch of people. They were afraid of him so they told their kids to stay away so he wouldn't get hurt.
>make a ninja character with pink hair and super strength
>she's still utterly boring shit
how can you fuck up this big
You are all lost. There is nothing I can do you you all anymore. You must find your own way. Go Freedom..... Go America........ Go Sakura................. Sad face
I saw Sakura cut her hair, but I never saw any of that "maturation" nonsense you mention. Maybe if she had made a real try to assassinate Sasuke I would have bought it, but she just ended up wasting everyone's time and setting up Naruto's gay murder-suicide confession.
>I'm like 500 chapters in
Shit, my heart goes out to you anon. You could of dropped it after the Pain arc and pretended it ended there. You got 200 or so chapters of complete bull shit ahead of you.
I'd fuck her up.... if you know what I mean.
I wish Kishi would have drawn buff Sakura.
He was hated his entire childhood and in the beginning of the series by kids like Sakura and Ino.
It never really made sense why people hated him in the first place after we found out who is parents were and what they did before they died. I don't see why it needed to be kept a secret.
He's a bad artist as he is a bad writer, you really expect him to draw varied female body types apart from the occasional fat bitch?
Plus Sakura is pretty weak, her super strength is all basically explosions of chakra than actual physical muscles, she's just a wizard not even a muscle wizard.
The Road to Ninja movie was complete shit.
The pissed away the whole "alternate universe versions of the characters" thing pretty quickly and the movie made Sakura even more of a bitch than normal.
She was whining to an orphan that having parents was like so totally lame, then told him that the guy who's parents were murdered by his brother would understand her better.
Fact: the only character development that girl characters need is haircuts and love interests.
Literally any ship would have been better than sakura/edgelord.
Kishimoto was a pretty good artist during the first few arcs of Naruto
>Naruto was good
That doesn't make it good either
Kishi was never a good artist
It just seems that he was better back then because he was trying a lot harder(as does every beginning author)
>Tfw shipped NaruxSaku from the very fucking beginning
>mfw watching it didn't happen after all this time
At least I stuck with it all the way to the end, eh?
I agree, Kishimoto's earlier art had a lot of simple charm and individuality. The style only went downhill.
>tfw orochimaru there just chillin
>tfw no one recognizes him
no wonder he got away with everything
Look at Naruto and Hinata there, in the field of rejection, where he is going to reject her feelings in The Last, look at her expression of somber acceptance on her face as they walk back so Naruto can be with his true love.
>shes actually self-aware of how useless she is.
Sometimes i wonder how The Last would turn out if Neji were alive
Nigga what? Hes not the greatest artist ever, and I dont like naruto that much but there isnt really anything wrong with his art. I know /a/ hates the series as much as /v/ hates videogames and /fit/ hates manlets but come on at least try to be fair.
No one of significance really died anyway and pain shouldve been the last of the akatsuki. Madara and obito were too fucking much. Oh and sasukes arc shouldve been wrapped and he shiuldve just dropped his revenge thing or suicide himself.
>Nigga what? Hes not the greatest artist ever, and I dont like naruto that much but there isnt really anything wrong with his art
When Kishimoto started Naruto, he had a very unique look to the manga that made the designs look "sketchy" but in a very controlled and unique way. It made the characters and fights stand out very considerably. This was pretty much how it was for pre-timeskip
However over time, his art started changing and his characters started matching how they look in the anime which was a big mistake as the art became super generic and lost that unique edge
Am I the only one to actually like pre-shippuuden Sakura?
I liked her pre-shippuden too, her shitness was more understable since she was only 12 and we se her grow even if it was onl a little. Early Shippuden Kekura was great too but since mostly her development happened off screen I didn´t care that much.
>Woah Sakura got a power up
It's some shit she learnt from Tsunade
>Woah Sakura got a power up
It's some shit she learnt from Tsunade
>Woah Sakura got a power up
It's some shit she learnt from Tsunade
The cycle never ended
That is the worst part about Sakura. I was actually fan of hers in early Shippuden because it looked like she was going to step up and become a good character.
Instead it was just an endless cycle of her crying over how useless she is then thinking she can do something and failing. Rinse and repeat.
Her "powerup" she revealed out of nowhere at the end that was supposed to put her on par with her old teammates was absolutely pathetic.
It was pretty much shit yet needed years of constant charging to activate, and yet right after she unveils it and states she doesn't need to be protected anymore she needed the guys to jump in and save her.
i actually liked her in The Last
she was total bro in the movie
yep you are right
btw any news on Sasuke Novel?
heard there was SakuKarin moments
>children are annoying, stupid and have shitty fights
>adults are cool and have badass fights
nips need to drop their children fetish every now and then and just make a good show. you could do a dragon ball kai version of naruto by just cutting out all scenes with the children and it would improve 10000%. maybe just keep hinata
Taka are only in the Sasuke novel for two pages, so no. He shows up at Oro's base to fetch him for some sort of mission, she and Sui argue like children, and then Sasuke and Oro leave and they never show up again,
History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi was the opposite, the kids had cool fights but the masters had lame bullshit fights.
Them taking up more and more of the screentime was one of the many reasons that manga got worse.
She's a pathetic fuckup and a mental wreck, but somehow she did get some Uchiha spunk.
Sausage just handing her a turkey baster is not out of the question, however. Or possibly she spiked his food/drink and raped him until she got preggers.
in other news, chinese costume for naruto confirmed as pre order bonus only for chink version of the UNS4
Yeah she is, Kishi is just a hack so he had everyone act completely retarded to make it a gigantic red herring instead of simply taking the 2 seconds it would have requred to tell Salad the facts.
One of the oldest and most retarded writing cliches there is.
The fact he had Sakura give Karin the dried umbilical cord of Salad just to further make it look like that Karin was the mother even though its a nonsensical action shows just how shameless his writing is.
>Sakura was planned to be the mom since the beginning
Given that the Third Hokage was a dog at the beginning and the Fourth looked like a meth addict/dealer, neither Sasuke or Sakura existed, and the whole charade was meant to be a Harry Potter ripoff, I highly doubt that.
You're missing the point anon, its the quality of writing being called into question.
Kishi is a hack to have written this plotline in the first place, especially in the manner he did so.
How did you misread it so badly?
That shit was good for the story. For as long as the adults were clearly more competent than children then the series didn't break immersion and didn't fall into powerlevels. It remains a manga about child soldiers instead of wizard teenagers having magic battles.
The assistant said so. If you want to believe otherwise that is fine. Also the dog thing was just a prototype thing that got scrapped. And that was when Naruto was going to be a solo ninja traveling with his master.
I was watching this video and I realize how irrelevant Sakura is to Naruto and Sasuke bond(and individual characters) she was never mentioned in Naruto gay passionate speech, she can´t relate to them in any way, she has never understond them. She is Kishi greatest failure and deserve every bit of hate she get.
Sakura wasn't meant to be a likable character from the beginning, but just an ordinary girl that Kishimoto believed represented how normal girls behaved. The majority of her fans had to rely on their own fanfiction and out of character fanart that they took as fact, that they were blindsided by the end of the series not happening according to their headcanon. They even commissioned certain members to draw their real ending to make themselves feel better.
I kinda find it funny that so many people waste so much energy hating her tb.h
Whenever I was watching/reading Naruto(back when I was a kid and didn't know better) I was pretty indifferent to her...she was pretty irrelevant...like she's just there...nothing she ever does affects me in any way
Also it's funny that she's like one of the smartest kids in the series in the beginning but she's such an irrelevant character throughout the whole thing and she's a shitty Tsunade clone later...without the best part that makes Tsunade somewhat okay(the huge tits)
pretty much this. You could have expected it to become more seinen-like given the whole child soldiers theme and the rival leaving for the bad guys, but instead, as his characters (and readers) went older, kishi went full shonen after the timeskip. irony.
No she didn't. When the ennemy is powerfull its always better to outnumber it. Sakura provided a distraction, and made a great puppet for chiyo when she had no more to use.
>The majority of her fans had to rely on their own fanfiction and out of character fanart that they took as fact, that they were blindsided by the end of the series not happening according to their headcanon.
But you could say the same of many shipper/characterfags, anon.
Tsunade bf was at least a nice guy that liked her back, but its pretty pathetic how they basically define themselves by the guy they are wet for.
Tsunade was pretty shitty as a leader and fighter who's saving grace was her abilities as a heal bot, even her looks aren't so great when you remember they are all fake and by the end of the series if she disengages her false youth jutsu she should basically be dissolving into wrinkly dust.
Personally when this subject comes up, I wonder who the fuck raised infant Naruto and what the fuck happened to them. Newborns can't feed and care for themselves. Someone has to have taken care of Naruto while he learned basics like walking, talking, feeding himself, and dressing himself. Whoever that was should have been recognized by Naruto as a parental figure, whether it was the 3rd himself, or someone he assigned.
I don't remember someone in canon said/think that sakura do all the job, so why are you so adamant about it? Teamwork is teamwork and Chiyo was that good. Don't be a stuck in the mud, anon.
But she has giant tits
Something Sakura doesn't
If Sakura had giant tits at least there would be something to genuinely like about her
I hoped she would have huge cowtits at least but Kishi disappoints every time
And this is why Sakura lack of backstory, family background and other relationships beside Team 7 it´s so jarring. As obssesive that Naruto was with Sasuke we at least could understand were his obbsesion come from, they were both lonely kids, Jiraiya death shed a new light to Naruto about Sasuke vengance, Sasuke lost in a brutally way what Naruto long the most(a family), etc. Where the fuck Sakura fit with all of this? where Sakura obssesion come from?
There was literally no bond between Sasuke and Naruto
I don't get this shit at all
I mean at the beginning Naruto is jealous of Sasuke always outshining him
Then when Naruto surpasses him Sasuke goes mad that he's weaker and leaves the village in quest for power
Somehow Naruto thinks that Sasuke was his friend even though Sasuke literally never gave a shit about Naruto
And then Naruto turns gay for him in Shippuden
Hinata is the true inheritor of the cow tits secret technique.
Caesar Salada was starved as a baby and thats why she has to wear glasses despite being an Uchiha shit.
>Tsunade was pretty shitty as a leader
Let's be fair; pretty much all hokages are like this...
Only the third and second show to have some decent knowledge in management and politics. They still fuck up big time because plot and for not being jesus-naruto. But at least you know they didn't get their cool pyramid hat just because they ranked first in the popularity strongest ninja poll.
Knowing her story just would have made people hate her more. Knowing that she has loving parents and is complaining about them when all of her teammates are orphans would have gotten old quick.
Didn't Sasuke attempt to sacrifice himself to protect Naruto in the first major arc.
Not the say you're wrong though. It still makes no sense and came the fuck out of no where is a different story.
>mfw Bolt and Salad's child gonna have Uchiha+Uzumaki+Hyuuga blood
10 thousand more years of keikaku i guess
Anon, nobody normal would be a fan of them. Just imagine walking down the street at night, and the first thing you see are two giant white eyes staring at you. Shit is just creepy.
>If Sakura had giant tits at least there would be something to genuinely like about her
>measure a female character worth by her breast-cup
That must be the most shallow and inaccurate definition of genuine love I ever see, but sure why not.
>And why the fuck did the 3rd Hokage not look after him in his household, instead leaving him alone to fend for himself?
Because he is a dick
It took Uchiha plot armor and Kishi reading a book on women's psychology 15 years after writing a series filled with female characters to finally get a semi-decent one.
youre both retarded faggots. his female characters are more honest than most and thats the problem. you dont want real life relatable or representations of women. you want your fantasies lived out through mango drawings. drawing females as females is sexist nowadays
you want twilight and 50 shades of grey
No all the time, team members don't have to care about each other, it's nice if they do, but it's not always the case.
Also Kakashi never appointed Sasuke as the interim team leader either. So no Sasuke was never team leader.
Have to agree. Team 7 could only be called a team when it was with yamato and sai. Nardo making everything personnal with sauce prevented them from doing any real teamwork in part 1 and Kakashi is a shit when it come to teaching.. or children.
Most of the hate come from the heroine statuts she get for being the girl in the MC ad rival's team and the MC's love interest, while she is as developped as a (glorified) side character at best.
their bond is forced. the fact that Kishi or his editors made them star crossed brother towards the end to justify naruto's heterosexuality, even lampshade it.
theres is nothing "real" about Sakura. Ino was more real because she actually had a personality outside of wanting to fuck Sasuke. Even if her personality wasnt a good one, it was a real one, there are actual girls like that.
Sakura literally did nothing and only existed to one day pleasure Sasukes cock and be mean to Naruto. She had no personality and no skills.
Now i may be talking out of my ass a bit since i only watched a bit of shippuden and watched the entire original series but this is pretty much what she was during the first half.
That's a filler, sir. the manga never address the point.
>you dont want real life relatable or representations of women.
>Sakura and Hinata being relatable and realist female characters.
Why do you hate women so much, anon?
Sakura did more in that fight than Sauce did against Kaguya.
I don't think it was to justify Naruto's heterosexuality actually
It's just Naruto is such a fucking clingy crybaby
But yeah their bond never made any sense
It's way too one-sided on Naruto's part
And what does this teach to young kids?
That if you're enough of an annoying crybaby and constantly try to force somebody to be your friend that he will?
I mean that's basically what Naruto did with Sasuke...it makes no sense,it's completely retarded
>She had no personality and no skills
She actually was really smart in the beginning and was shown to be talented in chakra control and such
Kishi never went anywhere with it tho
And in the very early days of the manga she was pretty expressive even though she was bitchy
you're right but as you pointed out, they went nowhere with the talents she did have so it was like it never happened in the first place. i forgot those qualities about her, she had something when i said she never had anything but really it didnt matter because they did nothing with it.
True enough. I don't think naruto should ever be regarded as something capable to teach you some important value as it only deal about obsessive or/and one-sided relationship.
The fact that naruto start as "a looser who work his way through (supposed) effort and adversity" to be retconned as "the child of the prophecy" kinda tell it all for me.
Although I still don't get this strong hatred for Sakura since she's basically an unimportant irrelevant character
Nigga they dropped that shit when Naruto was fighting Neji and he used his Kyuubi powers
His fight vs Hidan...best moment in this shitty series
And Hidan was way too fucking awesome of a villain for Naruto
>And Hidan was way too fucking awesome of a villain for Naruto
All of Akatsuki were great villains except for Zetsu.
>Although I still don't get this strong hatred for Sakura since she's basically an unimportant irrelevant character
Probably because she was essentially irrelevant but took up the slot of a main character.
I always felt that Naruto had a lot of interesting side characters that I feel should have gotten more time outside of anime fillers and Sakura is the most dispensable person in the main group.
Hidan is a really great and funny guy despite being an edgelord. The fact that he had one of the greatest fights in the series against an actually good character, Shikamaru, and freaky as shit BDSM powers is just other things people like.
An edgelord gone wrong is Sasuke. Or Obito. Nobody likes Obito
Nothing. She was a token character thrown in because the editor thought that the series wouldn't be popular if there wasn't a female on the team as well.
She was clearly meant to die either during the exams or shortly thereafter to provide character development for the two real leads of the story but she proved to be too popular so she got shoehorned into the rest of the series.
but hidans fight was fucking terrible and 100% centered around plot armor
>hurr he thinks he stabbed me but im so fast and perfect i squirted keikaku blood on it without an S level ninja realizing it from 2 inches away looking right at me
The Third is a massive asshole.
In the Last, Konohamaru finds a stash of various odds and ends kept by the third. Among them is a scarf Naruto's mother MADE FOR HIM. And he KEPT it for 20 YEARS.
In Naruto you either don't get mentioned by the plot, or you get written about long enough to see yourself become the villain.
Jiraiya also turned into a cunt when it was revealed in Shippuden he was Naruto's godfather and yet didn't care for the child at all.
Sakura was the original Naruhina shipper, in-universe.
he was actually the coolest member of akatsuki. battle hardened scorpion. it kind of sucks when he just turns into a ball of yarn though. he felt like he had character and back story without ever really developing him
holy kek. see >>133413937
the only female character that women care about is the marry sue to end all marry sues. so yes maybe grrrrm does actually know what women want in a character
I feel like Hanzo was an underrated/under used ninja, to come back to life to only lose to some random samurai. He deserve a better fight. Hell, why were most mist ninja's in general(well maybe the just the older generation) the only real group to act like ninja's in this series?
He only existed to be the bad guy in Nagato's backstory and to hype Pain up by mentioning how badly he fucked him over.
Anyhow, the zombie army fights were completely pointless in the long run since Itachi would have gotten rid of all of them except Madara eventually.
The zombies as a concept entirely were retarded.
Infinite regeneration and infinite chakra pulled from absolutely nowhere? They could have just used their kamikaze/nuke moves over and over again to decimate the protagonists army entirely.
>Infinite regeneration and infinite chakra pulled from absolutely nowhere?
Probably the only way kishi could come up with a way for part 1 characters to counter the uchihax and stay relevant. Yeah...shit writing as usual.
But that didn't matter anyway. The only relevant zombies were Madara, Itachi and the four hokages.
Haku and Zabuza died the exact same way they did the first time, Deidara and Sasori jobbed to forgotten characters, Kakuzu got beat offscreen and all Nagato did was make Itachi look better.
and i don't get why Kishi gave 1010 a ninja weapons instead giving her a wizard powers like any characters to begin with
Speak for yerself. I myself would be turned on
i think the main reason is kishi didn't give her any specific weapon of choice
he should have gave her a ko-Naginata and chinese sword as main weapons in part 2
also iirc she used to do archery too during the gaara rescue arc
now you imagining hyuuga blowjob in dark room
at least she got decent filler in the end
How to make Sakura a good charatar after time skip:
- give her something to use in a fight, here we can use the stuff hinted pretime skip. good with chakra, so healer can stay make her use genjutsu and give her some other attak justu maybe water elemnt.
- what did she do in the 2 years of training lets be serious all she did was taking the chunin exam and do nothing so lets change that a bit, let her bekome a very good healer and genjustu user, and let her get started in the water jutsus.
than give her a motivation well it will still be sasuke (could be changed to, that she realys he is dangures for the village).
but with that we can let her do sth let her be an anbu cause wo chases evel ninjas ?? chunin of corse, and it would give her enough power to stand beside jesus naruto and eyehax sasuke.
not so hard kishimoto you should use your brain

they are really trying to make Tsunade's dream as filler as possible, aren't they?
thanks for the list anon
btw where do you get these episode lists may i ask?
>they are really trying to make Tsunade's dream as filler as possible, aren't they?
unfortunately yes, what i hate is fillers are half decent but the entire shit is a FUCKING DREAM, NOT EVEN A CANON, AND IT TAKES WAY FUCKING TOO LONG
i also liked the RtN setting they should have done RtN SoL filler instead of this nedgy shit if they really wanted make it
heres a interview with SP
>mfw staff has same mood as workers in texture industry
>ask nurse if your mom's actually your mom
>ER WELL, UH, ABOUT THAT, LIKE, UHH...
What the fuck was up with that? Were they just hiding the fact that her parents' marriage is a farce because Sakura had to haul her pregnant ass out of the village to find HIM for the birth of THEIR baby (and he still missed it)?
I mean, that will give you a pretty awful opinion of Papa Sauce, but maybe he deserves that?
If they can shove a 10+ episode filler about Obito Hyuga when they are supposed to be showing us Tsunade hanging out with her dead loved ones you can bet your ass we'll get even more fillers during and after Kaguya's fight.
Why is Sakura so shit at convincing anyone? Hell its not like she even needs to lie (which as a ninja she should be capable of doing as needed), if she just told her daughter the truth about her birth then none of this bullshit would have happened. But no she has to chimp out like some sort of retard and cow her daughter into silence with violence (which is even more stupid since her super strength is a conscious action of intense chakra control, its not something she can just do unconsciously).
This whole bit is even worse than her "fake confession" to Naruto.
About this: was Naruto ever, EVER told in-series who his parents were?
As I recall, when the Fourth showed up in front of Kurama's seal, Naruto just knew he was his dad. And if that's the case, he must've always known? And there's no way no one else knew. Why the fuck did everyone treat the tragic son of the beloved hero of the village like total garbage?
but anon, blind girls need love too.
thks for sharing anon.
> the french term for clown
I...no. just no.
not too old, since they were working on blood prison apparently.
Except she didn't. She ends up with Sasuke... sort of. He fucked her and ran, which is more than she deserves since honestly she just ware him off.
What i don't get is why Naruto is so much into her. Is not like she was nice to him or anything... he want's her just because she is after Sasuke.
He even presented her as his gurl to his father instead of Hinata, which is superior on every way AND adores him.
He wanted to do to her what she did to Sasuke... get her tired of saying "no" and one day say "yes", which is retarded... if it's not there it's not there.
What bothers me the most is that he probably just "settled" for Hinata without ever developing actual feelings for her.
You mean Uchiha eyehax bullshit which came before. We just didn't think it would get that bad when we were first introduced to it.
Sage Mode had actual limitations that didn't have the user go blind whenever the author felt like it.
She was supposed to be unlikable at the start.
A turning point for her character was after being scolded by Sasuke for minimizing Naruto's pain at being alone.
After sharing some of his pain at being spurned by a lover, she had become more empathetic toward him. Demonstrated by her conciliatory gestures.
This is the crux of the story, and what should have led to the culmination of Sakura's development, or insofar as it concerns, her feelings.
Were it not for the mindless shippers that held sway over kishi's decision. Or even more importantly, her character's development.
WHY WON'T IT END
FOR FUCK'S SAKE
IF THEY WANTED FILLER ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS MAKA TWO EPISODES PER CHARACTER AND INCLUDE A BUNCH OF POPULAR ONES THAT WERE NOT FEATURED IN THE FUCKING MANGA
How can they fuck it up this bad?
Honestly Sage mode would have been better if Naruto learned like the basics or something from it during the time skip so that way it at least looks like Naruto learned something instead of just growing taller
If Sakura just became a powerful as fuch technical ninja who learned some GODDAMN TAIJUTSU she might have become my favorite character.
Yeah, they've got the same hair and eye color, but part 1 of Naruto is mostly about NOT being special, and still being awesome. Also, Naruto was originally supposed to be an actual fox.
Naruto and the 4th Hokage were so similar-looking that I would have sworn it was either a red herring or lazy character design.
All that would have been needed to make Naruto's time with Jiraiya seem less of a waste/cheap excuse for an update in design was to let him make Rasengans one-handed right at the start and maybe occasionally have him summon the toads.
Maybe a couple of gags here and there where he tries to pull off a Jiraiya-esque kabuki routine.
>its pretty pathetic how they basically define themselves by the guy they are wet for.
have you never met a woman? The Naruto series fucked up a lot of things but its portrayal of females was spot fucking on.
The problem is that Kakuzu's backstory was revealed in 3rd databook. He was a ninja of Takigakure that received a mission from his superiors: assassinate Senju Hashirama.
He failed, as he had no chances on beating previous incarnation of Ninja Jesus with one of the most overpowered KKGs in the manga.
For this failure, he was put into jail by leaders of his village (!), which made him steal the Earth Grudge Fear kinjutsu (the threads thing in him) and he get the hearts of village leaders as first ones to use for it.
After that, Kakuzu decided to never work for a cause of the village again, and chose money as the only cause worth working for.
His last 4 hearts in his life were hearts of his former Akatsuki teammates, which he was killing when he got pissed off. When Hidan joined (which was "recent thing" when he was first shown post time skip, as he wasn't implied before it), he was made Kakuzu's teammate, as he couldn't kill him.
Really, I have no idea what Sakura was doing in the field as a kid. Her only skill was to get in front of the client and hold a kunai.
>Her only skill was to get in front of the client and hold a kunai.
>get in front of the client and hold a "kunai".
heh just as i said...
Ninja weapons become a crutch once wizard powers are cranked to eleven and people can casually summon giant ghost skeletons of infinite burning.
He wasnt, and that's all the 3rd's Fault for trying to keep him "safe". Kushina even remarks that Minato had no time to tell him who was his mother.
He alluded his fater, but after Naruto had met his chakra.
>Anime is still airing
What? How isn't it over yet? The manga has been done for over a year, right?
Then what about the Hyuugas?
They have the ability to KO a opponent in one hit even if its a Madara Uchiha since no one can make their chakra points strong.
Fucking Kishi, wasted so many opportunities there....
I don't know what is worse the fact they have zero obligation to do the filler now or the fact they picked the worse idea possible. Really an entire arc about a book a pervert wrote that an alcoholic read in a dream.
Anybody remember that god awful filler after Pain destroyed the village? That was a perfect opportunity to show a collection some 3-4 episode stories of shit that happened during the time skip. Naruto and Jiraiya running into trouble, Sai on a root mission, and the other supporting characters as well. Instead they fucking do a bunch of flash back episodes of team 7 from part 1 fucking fighting pirates, bandits, farm animals, and anthropomorphic cats.
Filler. I think everyone got their own episode under the Infinite Tsukiumi.
even SP itself cant stop it now
Maybe I should watch some episodes. I rather did enjoy some of the filler arcs of Bleach and Naruto when I used to watch those shows regularly years ago.
I'm sure they've must have done an Anko or Shizune episode
>trying to keep him "safe"
Which was pointless since the biggest enemy Konoha had at the moment knew who Naruto's parents were.
No Anko (at least not mentioned in the description) in the last 4 seasons, but I came across this
>Months prior to Sasuke defeating him, Orochimaru conducts an experiment where he used lightning to bring a robotic being to life. But he and Kabuto were forced to evacuate when the robot goes berserk and begins to destroy the building. The following day, the robot is found by Itachi and Kisame with Pain repairing it before he instructs Itachi to use the robot to capture Naruto. Sent into Konoha, the robot begins its search for Naruto while attacking several villagers and defeating Team Guy. Naruto himself shows up to stop the robot so that he can get back to training, his clones easily repelled yet manages to force the robot's cloak off. The robot is then revealed to be a mechanical replica of Naruto, whom is named Mecha-Naruto
Did anyone watch this arc?
>I'm sure they've must have done an Anko or Shizune episode
i think there was a arc about boat trip in part 1, where Anko was having PTSD shit because of Orochimaru's fiddling expriments back in the day
Sarutobi wasnt really a good leader, and he let Danzo do whatever he pleased.
Obito really screwed up Konoha by forcing the death of the 4th kage, he extended Sarutobi's leadership
>where Anko was having PTSD shit because of Orochimaru's fiddling
I wonder how she feels about Orochimaru getting away with everything.
wonder what would have happened if they made keikaku master as hokage instead of Tsunade
Naruto Shippuden Episode 306 – The Heart’s Eye
Tenten is the Gilgamesh of the series.
1010 is going to have the best gear once the next war starts.
>implying biological warfare isn't the way of the future
Lucky for Naruto Hinata can swallow like a beast.
heh that episode was NejiHina as fuck
still liked though
You mean absurdly powerful bloodline traits?
Useless as Sakura was, she was still the strongest ninja without bullshit ninja dna powers, except Lee and Guy with their Kaiohken ability.
>At listening to Naruto's explanation, Shikamaru amply smiled. Naruto smiled back and then looked at Hinata.
>''You'll be going as well, right Hinata''
>''Yes'' Hinata replied at Naruto's words nodding her head heartily.
>''Then... let's go! dattebayo.''
>''Hinata, are you okay?'' Naruto asked.
>''Yes, I'm okay.'' Hinata replied at a concerned Naruto.
>''We're going to fight together!'' Naruto was surprised at Hinata's words then he nodded with his head.
>Hinata who now was Naruto's wife.
Short Naruto & Hinata fluff in Sasuke Shinden
Yeah? Anon's point is that the Harunos are the "literally who" clan. Chakra release isn't a Haruno technique. Everyone else seems to just use the same techniques their clan/parents use and basically go off of genetics or legacy. Sakura kind of had none of that.
>Tsunade is canonically the strongest female ninja of the series and she's shit.
Especially since she's a Senju, so her power level is just embarrassing.
Sakura is a character that I feel, Could've worked but Kishimoto either didn't give a shit, or was himself so inept as a writer that he couldn't figure out how to make her worthwhile. That's a problem with a lot of his characters but really prevalent with Sakura since she's supposed to be a main character.
Even her big moment in The forest of death where she proves herself not to be just a damsel is bookended by her getting saved stronger guys. Storywise Sakura's not allowed to be strong cuz Kishimoto doesn't really want her to be. Which unfortunately contradicts her personality of apparently always being on top of everything and being great at thinking ninja tactics and implementation because she's not allowed to do shit. And usually when she does she ends up being easily overpowered and needing to be assisted by someone.
Sakura is a minor character who is forced into a main character role.
Shame such a fleshed out well written character didn't have more of a presence in the story. Should of waited to the beginning or middle of the war arc to kill her off rather than doing it right before. Would of been awesome to have her show show up to the battlefield with the people of Amegakure rallying behind her.
If he was gonna still kill her off when he did at least have the Rain Ninja show up at the battle field to support the Shinobi Alliance and honor her wishes. She was going on about how much she believed in Naruto right before she died but Kishi never went anywhere with it after.
Inviting the wife on a potentially dangerous mission?
You know what I hate the most in this manga?
How the power is only tied to who got the bets genes, and the actual skill and training has nothing to do with anything.
Side characters are training hard since the first volume and you still have the "hurr I'm from X family I have that Y power only me got".
I wonder if Kishimoto ever realized that Neji was right in the Chunin Exams?
The stage play is awesome. However the live action movie will not havve the good sense to use these actors and instead will be Dragonball Evolution 2.
>I wonder if Kishimoto ever realized that Neji was right in the Chunin Exams?
the fuck you think why he killed off the neji?
>"hurr I'm from X family I have that Y power only me got".
It barely matters since only two clans were worth shit in the end.
>I was watching this video and I realize how irrelevant Sakura is to Naruto and Sasuke bond
It took you this video to realize that?
At the end of the Kage Summit arc, Sakura resigns and says that she would leave saving Sasuke to Naruto because she's aware she can't do anything for him. She repeats this again at the end of the manga, only crying.
I was surprised that Minato didn't turn out to be from some big fucking deal clan.
>no name clan
>even stronger genes than hyuugas
kishi pls stahp
No, but Naruto's mom was, since the Uzumaki and the Senju are the same shit
>since the Uzumaki and the Senju are the same shit
That's the plan.
>Sakura not remembering if Sasuke wore glasses
This has got to be the most retarded shit I've ever seen. Kishimoto is hellbent on making her look like the densest fucker. Even worst, he made Naruto outright say Sasuke never wore glasses later on, to add insult to injury about how much Sakura does not know her 'husband'.
Why you got to make me sad like that?
The fillers are what have fleshed out the characters in the numerous cases Kishimoto skimped out or just addressed background information in passing.
no worries m8 shell gonna come back in UNS4
Naruhina it's the most forced shit ever.
Seriously i dont see what's the appeal on a girl that has to be rewarded for being over glorified by the otaku fans that project on her.
at least she dodged the bullet there and spawned literal semen demon
Congratulations on not reading the series.
The funny thing is that it would have made a decent amount of sense if the explanation had been that Sasuke and Sakura had covered up the fact that they got married, so that nobody would do the usual supervillain thing and try to threaten them to disrupt Sasuke's mission.
But no, Sakura's broadcasting his identity as clear day, pasting stolen pictures of him all over her house, screaming as loud as she can about her husband is a wonderful person who certainly hasn't abandoned her. I am legitimately curious if Kishi did any psychological research before writing that, because that's some characterization straight out of a domestic abuse shelter.
speaking of Wataru, isn't Comiket 89 soon?
can't wait for new nanashi doujin
also I said I wanted to scan one doujin last weekend, but I was busy with webm related
>"what if she won the shadow tentacles bowl instead of temari"
Shikadai would have very slightly different looking eyes.
The Gaiden chapters were worth it if only to see what a hilarious shambles Sakura's marriage to Sasuke is. Worst ship of all time.
I feel like Kishimoto has some hangups about family and close relationships in general. Naruto as a whole feels like a cry for help.
I've always liked Sakura since I first started watching Naruto.
>can be fun sometimes
>supportive of both her teammates even though she's weaker than them
>gets to be hokage level in strength without a bloodline or any genetic advantages
I don't really see any reason to hate her to be honest, maybe it's because I was never a retarded shipperfag.
She is as obnoxiously obsessed against all reason with Sasuke as Naruto, which is a horrible thing to be.
