Even so, at least she held her own with Neji. Neji, himself, is pretty powerful and for Hinata being able to hold her own against him was pretty commendable considering how weak the creator of Naruto tends to make some his female characters. The thing is also, besides having the Byuaken(?) which in itself is pretty awesome, she can fight. What is also commendable is that her fighting doesn't consist of biting someone because there's nothing better you can do so you have to become desperate and do things like that. I doubt if Sakura had actually had a fight with Neji, she would've even lasted as long as Hinata did, if she would've even had lasted.

As for Sakura being a realistic girl, I don't know.... I would imagine if she were real, someone as smart as her would realize, even for her love for Sasuke, that being a female ninja in male ninja world would require her to not only be book smart and to see through genjutsus, but to also be able to fight and protect yourself. She would know that she would have to try harder than everyone else. So to see Sakura...it's just so disappointing. I thought she would've had so much potential, but even as comic relief she sucks. I don't even find her funny. Plus, I thought Naruto was the comic relief as well as the main character. We already have him and he has enough comic relief for the entire show, who needs another useless one?

Excellent point Juri Niki! We do have Naruto for comic relief! Sakura is good for the flower business! Hinata may not be as kick ass as the rest, but she still isn't as lame as Sakura. She can hold her own, and she has a great talent that hasn't YET been tapped into fully..... the fight with Neji I think WOKE something up inside of her. I have hope for her and I can not say the same for Sakura. She does appear to be a good friend to Naruto at times, but again, I think anyone could be.

You can't even compare Hinata from Sakura. I like Hinata's drive to prove herself to Naruto and everyone else. Her duel w/ Neji was her defining moment. I liked her character way before that but now I have more respect for her. Sakura has yet to prove herself, I mean, cutting your hair..come on!

So tru...I mean cutting her hair..was that supposed to be significant? That just tells me that she was way too self concious and thats not necessarily a good thing if you're a ninja. But yea Hinata is definitely a strong fighter she just needs to get a little drive and a little more ferocity and she'd be tha bomb

Heh heh..she still good and cute

well, i wouldnt say she was "holding her own". her attacks werent even affecting and he wasnt using his full strength.



Sakura sucks, pretty much everyone is stronger than her so she really isnt a comparison in this.

Hinata did a good job in her fight with Neiji. Even though she didn't really damage him thats to be expected since he is alot stronger than her and he uses the same type of techniques as her also. So its not easy to fight and defeat a person that uses the same exact techniques.

Sakura would have been dead in a nonsecond. She wouldn't have been able to even stand up after being hit with the gentle fist once.

She's useless, she should die, her death will make me love this show sooooo much more.

I can't see that gentle fist style working against someone who moves around... but I guess I'll see later on.

the Neji, Naruto fight should be neji attacks, Naruto gabs his fingers, bends, and sends him to his knees. Then Naruto looks at Neji and says "Beg jackass" and Neji grovels for Naruto to spare his life. Fight over.

As a matter of fact i doubt that there would be any fight between Neji and Sakura. I mean he would just think about attacking her and she would faint instantly or she would just start crying and forfeit because Neji was able to read her like an open book. So that's why i think that ......... *staring at Crimson's sig* that she ...... *can't stop staring* well damn i lost my idea.

lol Dryad! Perhaps a cold shower before heading to this forum is a great way to start for alll of us! .............. i thought the point with the soft paw was that it didn't even have to necessarily HIT HARD to even do damage, so if someone had the some decent speed, they could even take someone fast like Lee or Sasuke.

agree.... Hinata and Sakura don't even compare

At first Sakura seemed like she had the skillz to maybe do somethin, but afterwards, ugh. I hate sakura, she doesn't do anythin, they had better move her ass soon(even in the manga, u'd expect her to do SOMETHIN) she better learn some l337 jutsu.

So pretty much, Sakura and kin(she was useless too! but sakura still 0wned her in being the most useless)

Sakura isn't anything.... but the "Chi Chi" or "Oyamada Manta" of the series...

note: Chi Chi is from Dragon Ball Z. and Oyamada Manta is from Shaman King

She isn't really someone to come home to, but she genuinely worries, about the people she cares about... she is more or less the "Emotional shoujo" part of the manga, or anime... the person who is most realistic of the characters...

Hinata... well, she is the one who hides things... it will end up as a happy love interest in general, but you never know what Kishimoto is going to do next... (I never expected Lee to lose use of an arm and a leg)...

I really like Naruto, and everyone in comparison will seem like I dislike them. ANd I do to an extent, but I forgive them all except Sakura. Now, I hate her so much that it doesn't make sense. She is the most useless anime character that I have ever seen. If she were to die in the next episode, I really wouldn't care. What has she done that makes her worthy of being a main character? Nothing. What makes me sick is her obsession for Sasuke over rides everything that could have been great in her. When I was watching the episode where she cut her hair, I was so siked! I was like, finally, she is gonna show us her worth! And I was sadly let down. It was okay, but nothing special. But that isn't why I hate her. I hate her when Sasuke and Naruto are fighting an enemy and Naruto is knocked down. Like when they were fighting that guy that bit Sasuke, Naruto was hit and knocked on conscious, she really didn't show any emotion. But let Sasuke fall, O man, she is so sad. Then when he is shown to be okay, then it is time to figure out whatever happened to Naruto.[FONT=Arial]

here's my little 2 cents on the issue, first of all i haven't read all the posts in detail i just know nearly everyone hates Sakura!

First of all, i hate Neiji, he's really an idiot, he's strong but his attitude sucks..

Second, i don't see why people hate Sakura so much, i know she hasn't done much, but (sorry if this was mentioned earlier as i said, i haven't read all the posts) Sakura is an important element, she symbolises the "love" in the series, i suppose in an all action intense series she kinda lets things loose a bit.. she's sweet

err.. take it easy on me

I agree about Sakura! She's an important to the plot and such. Any other chacter wouldn't do: she has to be loud, annoying, and always there! Muahahahha. But I still say Neji rocks. He's not a bad guy...
