I'm sort of a new recruit in the Naruto universe, I've started watching it recently. However it's the best show on the planet so I'm on episode 224 in Shippuden. I basically just didn't have a life for a few weeks, that's how i got that far. But I realized I really liked Sakura's character, her looks and character design as well as her character arc. Her relationship with Naruto is my favorite part of the show, and I think every guy can relate to Naruto in terms of having your crush hate you at a young age. But I noticed there's a lot of people who hate her and call her useless and annoying. Why is that? I think her character is really important to Naruto's story.

Well, she isn't my favorite character in Naruto and I was talking about this topic in school once, and my friends all concluded that she is "insert word for female dog here".

People don't like her because in the entirety of Naruto before Shippuden she never fought except for like once. I personally don't like her because she's in the way of my Naruto x Hinata dream.

It is because Sakura almost always is on the sidelines when compared to Sasuke and Naruto.

Until Tsunade trains her she is completely useless. After Tsunade trains her she becomes strong and useful, but too late, cause by the time she is useful the villains have become even stronger. Basically Sakura is almost always one power level behind the villains, Sasuke, Naruto, and any other important characters.

People have the idea that she does basically nothing important.

This is because, at the surface level, it may appear that way, but that's if you ignore the motivation aspect and the significance of several actions she is part of.

I totally agree that she wasn't useful in a fight before shippuden. But in terms of story she plays a big part in Naruto's motivation and reason for wanting to control the 9 tails. Also i'm pretty positive Naruto knows he's got no shot with her, and it seems like the writer has been setting up his romance with Hinata from day 1.

She's shown up so little recently that I forgot why I didn't like her lol. I think it had to do with her obsession with Sasuke though. I guess it was because, which pretty much never happens in anime, despite being technically the main heroine, she acted like one of those mob girls that flock around a popular person that you see in other animes. I guess you could say her personality was a little too real, and not on the good side of real.

After Shippuden though, I think that image from normal Naruto just stuck with me and I couldn't get over it. Then when Hinata had her moment during the Pain Arc, I just stopped caring at all whether Sakura still existed or not. She just kind of become a secondary character to me like Ino, and I did not much care about what she was or wasn't doing. Before the Pain Arc I thought Hinata was cute and Sakura was annoying, that was about it, after it though I thought Hinata was totally awesome and well I just stopped thinking at all about Sakura.

I've been watching Naruto for about 7 years now and I can honestly say that Sakura's pretty useless. She was completely useless in the orginal Naruto and in Shippuden she was only cool for the first season where they had to rescue Gaara. But what has she done since that was important? Nothing. She's nothing more than the obligatory female companion of the main character in this shonen series. Naruto and Sakura's relationship isn't really that important. They're just friends. Naruto values all his friendships equally and considering how many characters are on the show, that just magnifies how much it doesn't matter. I don't like Sakura, but I don't dislike her either. To me, she's just eh. I honestly think she could be swapped with almost any of the other females on the show and it wouldn't make much difference.

The reason I dislike her was because she was a bitch towards Naruto and clings on Sasuke. Though that happened before Shippuden and a little bit in the beginning of Shippuden. Other than that I can care less for the girl. I stop watching Naruto Shippuden years ago and don't know what type of person she is now.

Thats' why I dislike her.

She is barely in it anymore.

It mainly focuses on Kakashi, Naruto, Killer Bee, and Sasuke.
