    Kishi handles Sakura badly

    I just reread most of the war, and have to say something. Really, I'm no Sakura fan, but it's really bad writing how he puts her in and out of the plot randomly.

    So, he didn't show her for 99% of the war. Then, as Naruto and Sasuke reunite, he goes all out, introducing her as the third main character, in one team and on par with the other two. She is with them kicking ass on the frontline.

    And then, suddenly, when Obito returns from Kamui and becomes the Jin, Kishi completely forgets about her until a brief scene this chapter.

    Either have her be a secondary supporting character from the start, OR make her a main character, but sitching her on and off like that is just stupid.

    He does that with other characters too, but with Sakura it's the most obvious.

    As soon as Sasuke-Kun falls from the sky she suddenly got the urge to release her seal and impress him.

    She's a wasted potential, and yet I don't mind at all.

    Re: Kishi handles Sakura badly

    Exactly.

    She could have been much better; but Kishi flip flops with her character.

    For ex; she is currently not one one of my faves at all; but her comeback in the beginning of part2 was amazing. It was a great job for Kishi that he dug out such character from oh-so-horrible part 1 Sakura. She was awful back then; yet she became actually useful, fighting, intelligent at battle etc.

    Then she almost comes back to her old self; she falls dwon from that bridge or tries to foolishly attack Sasuke...
    Or this scene:

    She should have shown improvement; not such drawbacks...it feels weird to me.

    Re: Kishi handles Sakura badly

    NO SHIT he handles her badly! Kishimoto cannot write a female, any female, in a decent (i.e. respectable) manner. You can try to argue against it, but the fact that his women have any sort of fanbase at all is almost miraculous.

    Meh. It was uncalled; do we have to see the main heroine in such pathetic situation?
    This girl fought an akatsuki, trained by hokage; now she is getting one-shooted by random chuunin...horrible improvement.

    I like Temari and Chiyo. Also Konan, Tenten, Kushina, Tayuya, Anko...
    There are females that are not that bad; but they are rarely shown; maybe Kishi screws up with women when he tries to solve them or give depth.

    your hatred blinds you to the epic feats she has, which you people never count.

    Sakura > The females you mentioned.

    Not just feats.
    Of course she would be better in feats; she had more screentime than all of their's combination.

    Power do not matter to me that much; i was mentioning about characterization and portrayal of females.
    All females i have mentioned had better portrayal in my opinion.
    Despite they had much little paneltime; i just like them more.

    Re: Kishi handles Sakura badly

    Her true purpose in the story is to be a side character (fodder).

    Yes, absolutely. I really liked her at that part, fighting Sasori with Chiyo. She was tough, powerful and clever. That fight is still one of the best in the whole series imho. And after that she only played very minor roles here and there, like clobbering the caterpillar summon in the Pain arc. She didn't get another main plot fight where she was the main focus. Again, I'm no fan, but it's kinda shameful.

    Obviously it's Sakura's best fight - it's pretty much her only true fight, but for me, it's one of the best, or rather, most memorable ones in the long run. It was also very tactical and shinobi-like, with the puppeteer's tricks.

    Maybe Kishi can't flow through her character in the manga.
    I mean; her biggest development and change came after a time skip; but nothing actually flow through step by step.

    Like happened with Sasuke or Naruto (first came from training, then wind element, then SM, then kyuubi etc.)

    Sakura got a huge step up through a time skip we never saw; after that; nothing seen from her, then in last chapters; she drops out yin seal and summoning from sky. As i said she did not develop stage by stage like other main characters.
