    Anybody could have been her, she was just there at the right time. She is just favoured by the plot and that's it.
    1. She got put in the same team with the main characters making her one of them too
    2. She was the only person allowed to be trained by Tsunade, again this is only because the plot.
    3. She would have been nothing without Tsunade's training.
    4. She straight up exploited Naruto to save Sasuke in the first part and made him feel guilty for how long.
    6. Literally a 2 faced person, in the first part of Naruto when you saw her dark side of what she was thinking off shes a schitzophrenic, 2 faced being.
    7. Anyone could have been her, Tenten, Ino

    I despise her character but even I know that she isn't useless by any stretch of imagination..She is annoying asf though..And being Tsunade 2.0 doesn't really help her case much..She is both annoying and redundant..I'm gonna blame kishi for this because it's due to his inability to think of something unique for Sakura that we are stuck with Tsunade 2.0..And the gall she had to claim that she had caught upto Naruto and Sasuke just increases the annoying quotient

    The biggest disservice to Sakura's character development is Sasuke.

    I really enjoyed her growth in Shippuden, both in terms of ability and in terms of persona - her abilities as a close-range fighter and a medic nin were badass, and I thought her nerdy, short-tempered tomboy persona was the funnest out of all the other female characters.

    I think Kishimoto really solidified his incompetency in being a consistent writer in terms of female character growth when Sakura responded to Sasuke's apology in the last few chapters with a "sorry for what?" Like bitch are you fucking kidding me????? "Sorry for what"??? Do you have amnesia or some shit? The motherfucker abandoned you and tried to murder your ass several times????? He calls your ass "annoying" every chance he gets??? Like damn bitch learn to love yourself cause that's a whole 'nother level of self loathing

    Willful ignorance.
    First impressions die hard, and Kishi's terrible writing of female characters as being tropes doesn't help. They all could have ended up with people who are way better than them (or no one at all, why did they need to pair up?) but Kishi puts Sakura with the Chris Brown of Konoha and puts Hinata with someone who barely knows she exists? Great writing.

    At this point, I think the Sakura hate is just a carry over from her horrible introduction and negation of any of her positive attributes due to bad writing.

    She gave the team an extra mission to save her ass as well every time the team went out on a mission. So you had to save her ass like a thousand times for her to be useful every once in a while.

    But tbh there are a lot of reasons aprt from that. This guy explains it nicely....

    I think she is a pretty decent character. It's hard to be loved when people just see your faults. Although she has a lot of them she also has great things plus people like to pick and choose what equates as useful so yeah.

    1. Just like naruto and sasuke was put on the same team cause plot...
    2. So was ino...
    3. Just like naruto would be nothing without kakashi and jiraya...
    4. She was not aware of doing that and part 2 she literally tried to make him stop doing that but he wanted sasuke
    5. You skipped the number 5 for some reason
    6. That wasn't her dark side it was how she was feeling inside...
    7. Than why weren't they ino was trained by tsunade why didn't she and ino wanted to be like tsunade but she didn't. ..

    1. Naruto is the main character so it makes sense. :drake
    2. No she wasn't check again
    3. Hmmmmmmmm lets look at this...
    Naruto is the legacy of the 4th hokage AND is has the nine tails within him AND is being target by a group of psycopath killers so it makes sense he is being trained by one of the sannin.

    Sasuke was from the most strongest clan in history so it makes sense he would be trained as they saw potential in him.

    You tell me what Sakura is...
    She got ''randomly'' selected out of how many ninja by infamous Tsunade
    4. She was aware how injured naruto was after he was in hospital, and still presuaded him to save him. And only after how many years, she tried to kill sasuke by being obedient to her then suddenly try to backstab him. Slimey snake

    6. Yes and it was completely different to how she acted outside, that's why i called her 2 face.
    7. Haven't you been listening to this conversation at all? Have you got short term memory loss? It's because PLOT

    She's a main character yet she's amounted to nothing which is why most consider her useless. She had so many chances to shine, yet she failed to do so She had so many chances to make the right decisions, yet again she failed to do so. This is mostly kishi's fault tho, he doesn't know how to write her.

    I assume it's because of her character in part 1. She was truly annoying but in part 2 she was better. The fanbase can not get over it. :catshrug

    Mostly first impressions. If you are using "she was favored by plot" then the answer is "no shit main characters are". The plot just is authorial intent. Sakura was as destined as being in T7 as was Sasuke or Naruto. She was foreshadowed to train with Tsunade from the start and she was foreshadowed to even her powerups. As long as it's foreshadowed it's OK in my books. It's not forced if you are been given "cues" for her development.

    And even if she was favored by plot she's still not useless. And making her Tsunade 2.0 amount to even being much more useful than any random ninja. As to why she's useless to certain fanbase is just certain fanbase's problem or they just got stuck with part 1 Sakura, who was lacking in fighting department.

    Character wise she has much to devolop but her power is unrivalled in naruto history. Her looks are extremely attractive and adorable.

    Her motivation was literally Sasuke for most of the series. She lacked a lot of self interest that wasn't tied to Sasuke or Naruto.

    She is shitter version of Mikasha from AoT.

    At least its understandable why Mikasha loves Eren and why she is so loyal to him.
    - fucking saved her from being a prostitute and gave her a home.

    Sakura? Because Kishi don't like the girls who falls in love for second time.

    At least Mikasha is competent... Sakura? anything but competent?

    And did you remember the garbage Sakura said to Sasuke when he about to leave during pt 1?

    Oh man i dislike Mikasa too. Honestly i think she is whats holding him back. If she would stop trying to constantly hold his hand with everything he does, Eren would've progressed faster.
