Re: Temari vs. Anko
You call me and others out for what you call ignorant bias? Well I call you out for being disrespectful. Number one the purpose of threads like these are to argure respectivly over one's oppinions not to insult others by not sharing in your oppinion. Why would you post a thread with an option for people to discuss if you're only going to rudly bring down another for their oppinions. I don't agree with some of the logic others give, but I'm not going to insult their intelligence. Things like calling people ignorent or the don't have sense for choosing something over another thing or for flaws you see in logic is something that really urks me especially over little things like this that will never happen.

As shown it's not a technique that requires a perticular amount of training to master or any at all seeing as it activates upon will and lends power. The power demonstrated by Sasuke in both states was formiddable even during the earlyer arcs. Anko was also under the tootalage of Orochimaru and was remarked to be a naturally talented kunoichi due to his interest in her. She's proficient enough in the summoning technique, having masterd many techniques derived from the actual jutsu itself (Striking shadow snakes, mutual death). Also in the anime (and I know people have issues about somethings that aren't in the manga but I find both anime and mange reliable sources) she is capable in using fire release techniques (although one is shown). As for her experience she's been seen on plenty of missions, showing confidence in her abilities by her superiors and she was captain of an infultraition and reconnisence unit which assumes a degree of stalth prowess seeing as it's an espionage unit. Now people may say that my argument is based on assumptions and unseen ability but granted that the match up itself is unfair, not seeing to the fullest extent ones abilities due to lack of screen time, while seeing more of others for that exact fact. Based on what has been showed and observed around the series these assumptions have a likely hood of being true to some extent.
Temari has long ranged ninjutsu and I believe that the range a person fights doesn't automatically decide the match if one shinobi fights long ranged and another fights close. If a shinobi manages to get their opponent within their range of jutsu that person has the advantage but I see Temari, being younger and less experienced would have trouble maintaining a distance from somebody who has more then likely faced opponents like her (long ranged that is). Also Temari's wind nature is weaker then Anko's fire nature (by genearl strength not neccisarily jutsu). Anko's fire technique(s) are mid-ranged as well from what has been seen so if anything Temari's wind may infact increase the flames size cause more harm to her. All of Temari's techniques are generally the same to. Large burst of wind generated by her fan that either blows you away or creates knife like winds, not much variety either.
That is my argument for why I believe Anko to be a winner in this match up and I'd would appriciate respect for my views and I will do the same.
