Sakura ( Shippuden ). Your thoughts? ?
Well, if you asked me what I thought about Sakura before Shippuden, I would have said she's and under rated character, but barely under rated. Out of ten, I'd rate her 2/10.
If you'd ask me what I thought about her overall in Shippuden, I'd be glad to tell you she jumped 6 points.Yep, 8/10.
Well, she's a medical ninja. She's being trained by a Sanin. She has a lot more personality to her. She grew b00bies ( little ones ). ( :p )
She perseveres. She's a lot prettier ( what, she's hot stuff :p, but seriously she looks better than INO 'cept for the chest ). She's overall much cooler. She analyses like Shikamaru.
Why not a higher ?
Well, there are my reasons. Some good ones. Her taijutsu is crap. ( 😐 )
No serious. She can punch around, with the chakra enhancements ( yes, good going Minny Tsunade Sama :p ), but it's not like Rock Lee where his attacks are creative, complex, hard to read, and nearly flawless.
She still hasn't proven herself on her own, battle wise. I know. She beat Sasori. No, no... she did... But she didn't did she ? ( :p ) Oh, and fillers do not count so no stupid 2 hit die Fuen !!! ... If it was against perv lady, she would have been owned.
Okay, counters to my agruements and how I address them.
1. She's strong though.
Yeah, I 100% AGREE. BUT, SHE'S SLOW... HER MOVES ARE CLUMSY AND PREDICTABLE, ALL IT'D TAKE WOULD BE ME TO GO EARTHQUAKE JUTSU AND TRIP HER. :p
2. Tsunade taught her to read movements.
I know, but appearances are decieving. Like with Sasori. Had Chiyo not been pilot, she would have been owned so fast.
3. MEDICAL NINJUTSU !
AAAAH !!! WONDERING WHEN THAT WOULD COME UP. Yes, it's true. She's good, but it was only affective under certain situations. For example, had she not healed whatever the f his name was before fighting Mr. Puppets, she would have died from the poison as there's not time for antidote making on the battlefield !!! Same with the Fuen fight. She had the dote for the poison. And these victories !!! Both from ninja that used chemical warfare. What if she fought Naruto ? I don't think shes good enough to patch up a rasengan to her tiny breasts... :p
4. READING ENEMY MOVEMENTS...
Can't hurt what isn't a person, but a shadow clone. Or a genjutsu. Even with that chakra control, Itachi or Sasuke sharingan can do the work.
5. FUEN. R@PED. OWNED.
Yeah.. and... filler + weak oponent + Sakura cocky because she had it won anyway = noy impressed.
6. Why bash a 8/10 character ?!!! Why Not SASUKE, THE EMO KUN !
Cause Sasuke is a very interesting, emotional, powerful wreck...
So is Sakura, but I'll get to Sasuke later.
That's it. SHE IS A GREAT CHARACTER, BUT I DID THIS TO SHOW SHE'S WAY OVER RATED IN SHIPPUDEN !!! :p
OH, YEAH. INSTEAD OF SAYING SASUKE ALL THE TIME, IT SWITCHED TO NARUTO. IRONIC. ( :p )
I agree with everything you say. Sakura was the most improved by far when Naruto jumped to Shippuden. She learned to become a medical ninja and she also became strong. She doesn't fear to attack enemies.
She toughter now, I used to cheer for her so much and she wouldnt pull through. Now she kicks butt. 🙂
She crys only when neccessary. Shes a medical ninja like you said and she still has her intelligence going over her.
And her strength is crazy! CRAZY! lol
I havent seen the last few Shippudens because i feel like its a waste,...I just want to see Sasuke again.Woot woot. 🙂
hmmm...well i agree on most of your points there. it kinda bugs me that she is never able to block attacks, only dodge. but sometimes she manages to fail both. but she is a decent med ninja.
