    Mad What the hell, Sakura?

    We've learned now that Sakura hasn't been using her abilities to the fullest... scratch that, she used her bare minimum, until this last battle? What the actual fuck?

    Is concentrating chakra more important to you than saving Naruto when he was pinned down by Pain?
    How much of a coward are you when Hinata, knowing that she's going to die, still tries to rescue Naruto?

    Actually, forget about Naruto.

    Why is concentrating chakra more important to you than saving your own village?

    Why, Sakura, why?

    I don't get it. Kishimoto pulls recent manga chapters right out of his ass!
    Sakura became a second Tsunade, while Hinata is finally able to do 64 palms? And what about Lee? And Tenten?

    That cowardice of Sakura is just astonishing. From now on, I'm officially hating her.

    kishi should have showed some of sakuras progression between the sasori fight and now instead of just dropping this on us at the end of the manga

    Its like Kishi doesn't even care. But I guess its only fair if she gets a random power up too. *sigh*
    Give the best manga of all time some attention!

    aye, but why show plot progress when you can do magic powerups?

    Re: What the hell, Sakura?

    Just a thought..

    Shino seems to have an insect for every occasion, where was he when any attack happens??

    Kishi just ignored everyone, we havent actually seen any major jutsus from kakashi thought he was supposed to be a copy ninja..

    Character development isnt Kishi's strength

    Seriously, sakura could have been so useful, a self-regen tank with slug summons?! Where was she, every single time there was a problem? She could have done so much against pain at least... What's really really sad is that she probably isn't even going to do anything, she had her spotlight, and now I bet she is just going to fade into the background with a panel here and there, and that's it.

    Shino was actually quite handy, he fought against konan and kept her completely in check until she was summoned away by animal realm, she was quite powerful, you know, he wasn't there when sasuke defected, and he played a starring role against kankuro in the sound and sand invasion. He was also the only one with an ability that could affect tobi, but yes, his potential is a bit wasted, his best showing was in the forest of death with his leeches.

    I also disagree there, kakashi is in another dimension, and he is trying to convert obito at the moment, this isn't a surprise, and soloing one of the two major antagonists is a pretty big deal.

    Actually this is quite normal. Shino's giant bug attack doesn't seem well suited for an attack against a fast moving, dodging normal ninja. His other attacks don't require him to actually touch his opponent in such a direct manner aside from the tracking bugs he uses. Shino didn't use this attack before because he didn't have a way to do so.

    Re: What the hell, Sakura?

    you can not play the game before its downloaded 100% to your computer.
    shes been saving piece of her chakra on slow days for 3 years, and she couldn't use it before it was fully charged. its been her way of doing things since she was kid. everything is asspull for you. i see it as something kishi was saving for her from long time ago.

    @pera2

    Right and the seal conveniently is ready just at this point in time? No hour later or sooner? How about the slug? Why never used it before? Its sure as hell a powerfull summon...

    Yes she could not use said seal before that point in time but its a CLEAR "asspull"...

    It is a major disappointment how Sakura has been since the sasori fight... oh well this arc has really hurt Naruto a lot.

    You need to re-read the arcs where Sakura is involved, there is nothing Sakura could do better, chakra storing or not.

    Pain : Tsunade already summoned Katsuyu, healing and protecting everyone. Sakura was punching Pain's summons and healing people. Sakura didn't have the Byakugan like Hinata who saw in live what's going on and reacted the very moment Naruto seemed screwed. Even Hinata told Naruto she was acting selfish because she guessed it wouldn't change anything. Sakura simply discovered that Hinata went to Pain and that Naruto was going 6 tails. There is nothing in her power she could do about that. She did what she knows the best : healing Hinata, and eventually looking for Yamato.

    In most of the case, Sakura has been a support because she is a medical ninja before everything, what she knows best is healing people. Stop comparing a medecin with a soldier. Even our modern field military doctors don't fight in our real world, they're just too precious. Sakura is an exception as a disciple of Tsunade but even then her arsenal is extremely limited for fight. Take Tsunade as example, the first thing she did for the village was support. Same with the kages, she went back healing and restoring chakra first.

    Re: What the hell, Sakura?

    Sakura's sudden powerup is understandable if we assume that Kishi decided to return to the storyline which involves less bullshit (which IMO started with Book no Jutsu) and, among other things, shows Sakura's progress.

    the issue most people have isnt that she could have done something better

    but that she is no longer a major character to the point that kishi doesnt even care about showing her progress

    Re: What the hell, Sakura?

    We got so many chapters from Sasuke's point of view, why didn't we get any from Sakura's point of view? I enjoyed watching Naruto train with Jiraiya and the frogs and I sure as hell would have liked to see Sakura training.
