I actually really like Sakura. She is a medic ninja and that already puts her in my good books! Despite how people say she has no ninjutsu, but does a doctor need to be a soldier? Not to mention she is one of the best medic ninjas at the age of 16! Despite haters saying that Sakura is a useless character, she is in fact a great literary device in the plot. She was able to boost Naruto’s determination to save Sasuke. However, I do agree with people to a certain extent. In the first part of Naruto (before the time lapse) she did get on my nerves. She was all over Sasuke even more than she was in the end. This all emphasized how her character changed. She became stronger and more reliable. Sakura is also Tsunade’s disciple and that puts her as not useless already.
Sakura has a talent at Chakra control and this is significant as she demonstrates her new strength. Sakura may be weak but not useless. It is only natural that her teammates, Naruto and Sasuke, outshine her. Her character is not an offensive character and that is what people focus on. She is a defence and medic so to compare her to characters like Naruto is wrong. After all, you can’t put an alpaca into an arena of ninja ducks and think that the alpaca will come out unscathed.
Gin’s Verdict on Sakura
Gin believes that people should probably be kinder to Sakura. At least get to know her character. Every character has their flaws. When someone doesn’t like the character, it spreads like a disease.
