Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.
Well I believe that the hate towards her was more induced because of the anime, not the manga.

Sakura had nothing, just her intelligence.
2. I have never seen this behavior on her, to be honest. Maybe it was in the anime? Because in the manga, the only time I have seen her doing it was when she explained chakra to Naruto.
3. Yes, that was what she did in the beginning, for life few chapters, but afterwards, Sakura was the only one to praise Naruto when others saw him as a failure.
I will have more insight to these, as I said, in my upcoming thread.
It might just take a while because it's some sort of Sakura analysis from Chapter 2-3 where she appeared until the last chapter she appeared and that will take a long time.
But maybe after that we can have a chat?
It's really nice to see people open to discussion regarding Sakura. ^_^
