    ....But Buntan, wannabe punk goth, and Yodo are the other ladies who can possibly be Kage.... :scust

    More powerful & competent female shinobi Kages? Sure!
    More female kages just for the sake of being kage? HELL NO!!

    I fully liked Tsunade as Hokage. Her counterpart of a bad female Kage was Lava bitch.
    A bad example of being Kage just for the sake of being Kage would be Kakashi.

    As of now I would hate for Salad to be Hokage. She hasn't shown any good qualities other than her power (top tier but I predict not God tier) and her emotional angst is easily a foreshadowing of how unstable she is. I mean she is an Uchiha after all.

    I, for one, really wanted Hima to become a female kage. Naruto, logically speaking, should have a very long life ahead of him minus if Kawaki actually kills him but foregoing that I don't see why he can't be Hokage for many decades due to his heritage and strong body/life force. It would be a nice touch to see the next Hokage as Hima. The female hyuuga Hokage. She is already destined to be a god destroyer as well. And I'd like a Hyuuga to be Hokage as their family stayed with Konoha and were allies with them since its conception. On the other hand, the Uchiha were planning a coup on Konoha and Sasuke pretty handedly screwed over Konoha plenty of times so I don't feel bad in saying an Uchiha Hokage would be in bad taste.

    And the female characters should feel more rounded outside of romance.
    But this manga is all about the bro bonds.

    No way would a ninja be able to pick up a katana the height of a large building and shove it through the face of a snake that is also the size of a large bullding in real life. Its not a very applicable arguement.

    I think Kishi tried harder than some manga artists to have women as competent authority figures. Rather than just fighters or just damsels. And his older women tended to have more personality and roles that weren't only related to romance and femininity too. The women he wrote best were arguably Tsunade and Chiyo. Two older and more authoritative shinobi. I think rather than writing in new female kage though, he should have worked harder with the kunoichi he had already written into the story. Konan, Kurenai and Anko were all pretty popular with the fans before being neglected and forgotten. Maybe Kishi should have showed Konan stepping up as the leader of the rain village and taking part in the War Arc rather than stuffing her in the fridge before it had started.

    TBH that's more Ikemoto's fault than Kishi's. But I'd say that in Scarlet Spring Kishi started Sarade off with some good traits and some flaws. She struggled to keep her emotions in line, just like most Uchihabut then she has been lied to by her family her entire life. I mean she went to see her father for the first time in her life and he threatens to stab her without even recognizing her, then Suigetsu mistakenly told her that someone else was empirically proven to be her mother. Getting a little emotional wasn't unreasonable.

    Plus she seems more serious about being a shinobi than Boruto, with better social skills and a better ability to think ahead. But she still jumps to conclusions and is naiive about how dangerous the world can be. Like most of her generation. There's enough there to build on. Ikemoto just chose to sideline her completely instead. She's even been dragged away from battles despite being a rival for Boruto in a way that would never have happened with Sasuke.

    Perfect answer


    Strongly disagree


    About Kakashi: Agreed

    About Hyuga: Meh
    Theirs is to protect out of honour. Leadership is a responsibility, which they don't seek, not a reward.
    Basically, I like them where they are but yes they should be given more significant roles/panel time

    If they are also competent fighters and respectable leaders that can stay relevant through their power as Kage and are not just another attempt at fan service that fall into irrelevancy then I welcome however many female Kages.

    With the amount of competent Kunoichi we've been shown, the answer is no.

    Yeah, there are a ton of kunoichi who were left hanging. Actually doing something with Temari, Kurenai, Kurotsuchi, Konan, Anko etc. would be preferable to shoving in a new one to neglect. Hell even Hinata deserved more screentime between the Pein Arc and the Last Movie.
    Ironically, even the best attempt to develop Sakura's character involved fridging Chiyo.
