At the beginning of Naruto series, it is shown Sakura among other rooting for Sasuke, at anything he did, including beating Naruto in duels. "Oh Sasuke you're so cool"! Later on Naruto gets stronger and at times surpasses Sasuke in part 1. Yet despite this Sakura still clings to Sasuke. In Shippuden after Sasuke has gone rogue and tries to kill Sakura, it was Naruto that saves her. Yet she was still obsessed with Sasuke more so than praising Naruto's heroism.. During the war, Naruto was saving everyone, but Sakura never seems too impressed by this (I have a feeling that if it were Sasuke instead she'd be going nuts). Minato shows up and declares himself as Naruto's dad....Naruto's dad is the freaking 4th Hokage. Sakura still shows no emotions towards this, as if she still isnt impressed, she seemed more interested in the fact that Itachi was Sasuke's brother Did Sakura like Sasuke because of his strength and genius in battle? If so, why didn't she think the same of Naruto once he became obviously powerful? If Sasuke died in battle, would Naruto have ever been considered by her as a potential love interest? What was it about Sasuke that Sakura saw in him but could never see in Naruto?
