    Since the issue of Sakura's worth has become such a hot topic with the latest manga releases, I thought I'd poll everyone's oppinions of her.

    Did you used to hate her but like her now?
    Do you still hate her now?
    Did you used to like her and hate her now? (not very likely, but I thought I'd throw this one in)
    Do you like her a bit more, but still dislike her over all?
    Or have you just always liked her?
    ...Or, do you just not give a rat's ass either way?

    Personally, I've always hated her, but she's been impressive as of late so I'm no longer a "Sakura basher". So long as she keeps it up.

    Argue and defend your opinion all you like, butNo Flame Wars Please. And no baseless insults towards her (eg "Sakura sucks because shes a bitch lol!") or insults towards other people because of their opinions (eg "Sakura bashers/fanboys suck!")

    Happy polling

    I used to like her only a little; now I like her much, much more. <- Not an avaible option.

    Simply because I had hope she would finally become useful through the manga development. She couldn't be on Team 7 for nothing.

    I used to think that she would develop later on in the series, and now that time has come. I have definitively been a fan of hers since she showed off that breakdancin' move -- or was it capoeira? -- however, I've got the bigger crush on Chiyo, on the rationale that if the puppet is good, the person pulling the strings must be that much better.

    I've always liked Sakura. She's done nothing except get better as a character since Chapter 3. I've definitely acknowledged her.

    I dont hate her anymore but i dont like her either.
    I am just like..........cool with her.
    (no an available option by the way. :notrust)
    My reason for hating her was always her immaturity, selfishness and her pretty boy chasing tendencies. Basicly being a bitch.
    But since she has matured and blossomed, i no longer hate her, but i'll probably never like her anyway. :D

    Cheers. :beer

    I didn't really care much until post-timeskip, though I admired her effort. SasukekunSasukekunSasukekunSasukekunSasukekun was fucking annoying too.

    Now I'm a smashytard. :D

    I didn´t like her before, but I don´t specially like her now. She gained my respect, though.

    Sorry :sweat
    I've PM'd our good friend :TO with a request to add those options in, so with any luck they'll be in soon. He can alter your votes if you've already voted, too.

    I should really start thinking over poll options more

    I voted for "I liked her a bit, now I love her."

    I always felt okay with her since the beginning. She was never my favourit charakter, but I never whined about her uselessness or complained about her being weak. Under all of the Bloodline-Users, Demon-possesors or Clan-shinobi she was a nice point of normality. There was no crazy unnatural ability at her so I always could relate to her, even though I'm a boy.

    But I got to confess that I think she got a bit punk't over the timeskip. Sure, she is no a really usefull shinobi. She has great medical abilities and a superhuman strenght. And I love her for that.

    But to me she has become a bit to much of a mini-Tsunade. For Example, Sasuke and Naruto are also training under one of the legendary sannin, but they have always kept something that makes them a bit more special and not simply a clone of their Master. Sasuke, for example, has his Sharingan and his curseseal, which orochimaru doesn't have. Naruto has his Kyuubi.

    But what does Sakura have? All her abilities have already been seen by Tsunade. It's not like Sakura isn't strong now, but I feel that she lost a bit of herself...

    ...Anyway, just my opinion...

    I've always liked her. Seeing her fight with Ino made me like her even more.

    hated her more than anyone in the series with the exception of maybe gaara. but now i like her. BUT if she goes back to that sauske-kun bull there will be a big red X over the picture in my avatar.

    I worship Sakura.

    And yes, it her fate to be screwed out of anything really cool. But look at it this way -

    When Kakashi was Sasuke's age... he INVENTED the Chidori.
    The only reason Orochimaru doesn't have a cursed seal himself... is because he doesn't need one.
    Fireballs = most boring and basic jutsu taught to all Uchiha clan members.

    So Sasuke really isn't original at all either.

    Naruto actually is, however. Which you'd expect from the main character.

    Agreed. I also hoped that she would get some badass new genjutsu-abilities after the timeskip but so far, It doesn't look like it. But this might also be because it is diffucult to use them against Sasori because you can't come close to him...

    We'll see, I guess...

    Well, the reason why Orochimaru doesn't have a curse seal is debateble, imo, cause it could also be that it's impossible for him to give himself one. Cause all cursed ppl loose their free will to Orochimaru slowly, and how is it suposed to work if Oro looses his will to... himself. But that's another question and I don't want to debate that out...

    However, Sasuke still has his Sharingan, which seperates him from Oro.

    I don't wanna say Sakura is unspecial, but so far, she has nothing really that seperates her from Tsunade, which I think is a bit sad because she deserves something special that is her own.

    But as already said, she is a genjutsu-type, so she might invent her own Genjutsu one day...

    I acknowledge Sakura. I acknowledge that she is userful now. I also acknowledge that she is a very talanted ninja. However, I have yet to acknowledge her as badass or "teh roxxor" lol I think it has become trendy to fawn over new Sakura's growth. I agree its quite an improvement, but I think the improvement has now only brought her on par with everyone else in the coolness factor lol I often times get labeled a Sakura basher because I go against the whole "Sakura = the new narutofan god" thing going on now. Meh, whatcha gunna do.

    New Sakura exists to hype up Naruto and Sasuke by giving the readers comparisons on strength. Eventually one of them will save her as they usually do...
