    What happened to Sakura? Where did Kishi fail?

    Right now, she is regarded as a weak link and nobody gives Sakura a second thought, except maybe a few fanatics and some hentai loving folks......

    Obviously, Kishi wanted team 7 to mimic the legendary Sannin. Arguable the strongest trio ever, and even though Tsunade would ultimately lose to both Orochimaro and Jiraiya, she still would/could have made their life a living hell. Jiraiya said her and the Kyuubi were the only things which had seriously ever injured him. She was no burden and contributed to the team with her great medical techniques (both offensively and defensively), her great strength, and her amazing chakra control.

    All of this was being passed down to team 7, and in part one everything went according to plan.

    Sakura was slowly being build up to be a highly intelligent shinobi, who had great chakra control, great stamina, and was diagnosed as a genjutsu type ( all the tools to become a dangerous threat).We have witnessed most of this doing the chunnin exams, when she answered all the question during the written exams, how she took all the mental damage from orochimaru, and brought either Sasuke or Naruto to safety, and most importantly she could dispel a genjutsu, which was noted to be on elite jounin level.
    Lastly, she was trained by the fifth hokage in 2, 5 years! Perfect time to evolve her skills to the next level, and nobody would complain if she became a mix of Tsunade, Kabuto, and kurenai.
    So, a great close range fighter with her strength and medical jutsu, in which she could screw up the nerves of her opponents and use poison as part of her inventory , plus she could cast genjutsu anywhere. This way she could have kept up with naruto and sasuke, and not be a complete burden.


    So what went wrong?

    Right now, both Naruto and Sasuke left her in the dust, and all sakura can do is cry and moan about how pathetic she really is. Her only impact in this story is to watch Naruto and Sasuke from the side lines, and actually hinder Naruto in what he needs to do i.e poison Naruto instead of sasuke, and being so delusional she thinks she can take Sasuke on by herself.

    She is so worthless she made Sasori look an amateur, the guy who took out the kazekage with iron sand, by himself. It’s like her characters development stopped after that fight and Kishi just gave up on her or worse simply forgot. This was the time to slowly expand on all the things Sakura learned during the time skip. And after hundreds of chapters it seems she showed all she had in the Sasori fight and that is very disappointing. It would have been much better to give her flashbacks like Naruto, and upgrade her piece by piece.

    Finally, I think the ship has sailed right now and she will forever play second fiddle to all the mid/top tier guys in the story.

    As screwed up as it is, I have to agree with him. Sakura is worthless. No one wants to see an emotional hag wine and moan all over the place. Although the key difference between the Sannin and team 7 is that there's this sort of love triangle thing going on I guess, the love direction took a different root, leading to a weak and emotional character. I think Sakura has potential, but she hasn't shown anything smdh.

    She's being worthless by only worrying about Sasuke, obviously he doesn't f*cking care.

    Re: What happened to Sakura? Where did Kishi fail?

    Sasuke, Naruto, and Sakura learned from the Sannins

    But Naruto and Sasuke have their own unique powers, EMS for Sasuke, and Kyuubi for Naruto.

    What does Sakura have ? Better yet what can she learn that Tsunade lacks etc ?

    Either Kishi will keep Sakura weak, and have her have a happy marriage with kids ( where as Tsunade lost her lover and basically Kid brother )

    Or

    Sakura will learn some sort of GenTaijutsu( Genjutsu applied through Taijutsu ), MedTaijutsu ( Medical Taijutsu ), FuijinTaijutsu ( Sealing techniques applied through use of Taijutsu )

    Sakura needs another power or her to settle down with Husband, and kids.

    Naruto brought basically a Toad army to fight Pain
    Sasuke brought Taka and his MS techs to Kill the Kages

    Sakura................... Brings a poison coated kunai with weak resolve....... to assasinate Sasuke.........

    Exactly, she has not shown any of her potential which is weird, and I can't remember but did oro care for tsunade?

    Hmmm, I just looked over some stuff and it seems that tsunade had a LITTLE crush on Oro, but he didn't like her, or anyone for that matter, he was pure evil from the start it seems. Not the kind of crush that Sakura has which is leading to her pathetic demise.

    Through the manga it is pretty clear she isn't a big threat(except for sasori).She never lands her attacks,and you saw how she looke like against sasuke, so i don't think its just about her emotionel flaws(even though it endangers others).However, i can not take anything away from her healing abilities.

    ok thought so, this is some serious emotionel distress and it makes her look weak.She has become a backup medic, a good one but a backup medic nontheless.

    Kakashi stated she had the largest talent in that, during the zabuza fight.At the chunnin exams, She broke out of an elite genjutsu, and kakashi praised her again.

    lol nice put. I am beginning to lean towards your first option, since we haven't seen anything yet. Kishi kinda buried her when he focused all his attention on naruto and sasuke.But it would be cool if he suddenly turned the switch up.

    Kishi started developing sakura, but then he reached the chapter where he reintroduced Sasuke and said **** it, he can only focus on one girl at a time, so he chose Sasuke xD

    She's just 16. Maybe she'll improve her skills when the manga's finished.

    Way back in the Day, Sakura was considered a Genjutsu type of Ninja, coz of her Chakra control, ( KAkashi said it very early in series ) Then she trained under Tsunade and since then has been long forgotten.

    It is unknown if she has any Genjutsus, But she was considered a Genjutsu type of Kunoichi.

    Re: What happened to Sakura? Where did Kishi fail?

    Sakura who?

    We can hate who we want.

    Sakura sucked. Then was better. Then sucks again. She isn't weak, she's annoying. There's a difference. However, she couldn't beat any mainstream villain. She beat Sasori thanks mostly to Chiyo. That's all. A Zetsu clone doesn't count.

    I dislike Sakura. A little biased because I liked Sasori, but she is all gaga over a corrupted Sasuke. Seriously, WTF?

    Re: What happened to Sakura? Where did Kishi fail?

    I think there is still time in the manga. Sakura is somewhat an above average ninja (for the leaf village) but not amazing. I'm not so sure she can be classified as amazing and strong in terms of prowess because all we've seen from Sakura are strength, evasion, medical ninjutsu and some ability in genjutsu. I think Kishi will definitely develop her characters ability because there are so many directions he can go with it.

    Re: What happened to Sakura? Where did Kishi fail?

    Yet another bash Sakuta thread?

    I don't understand what gives you idea that Kishi planned to make an exact copy of the three sanins. He tries to draw different personalities. He suffers from the same handicapt as most of the NB members. He is a male and writing for mostly male audience. Female characters in general are not much important and not elaborated- just their role as a mother.

    Anyway.. unlike Sasuke and and Naruto Sakura doesn't carry special KG or special chakra. She seems to be from an ordinary family with no exceptional family tech. She was still able to keep up a place in team 7 and work hard enough to become a good medic once she found out that in fighting skills she couldn't match her other team members. That was an intelligent decision. She has a good chakra control ( that's what makes her genjutsu type I think) and she was able to make an antidote for Sasori's poison within a short time. She has made her own place without any family backing, or a big brother and she is 16-17.

    People rant when some characters like Naruto and Sasuke get overpowered and they still rant when others like Sakura doesn't... pft... nobody is ever happy. lol

    Misogeny is not a good thing. Neither calling everyone who may like whatever female charactrs are thee, as a fanatic or hentai fan. Very few action series have proper well developed female characters. Readers have to make do with what is there.

    it quite interests me though... i wanted to see sakura do some amazing shiz after tsunade taught her for 3 YEARS!!! i mean cmon naruto and sasuke got really good in 3 years how come she didnt. i have a simple answer she doesnt have the emotional capability to be a ninja shes either crying or overly mad and that leads to distraction
