Hi, everyone, my name is Chatte, I'm 23 (turning 24 in March), I am from Romania and well, the manga that I read at the moment is Naruto.
I like every character from the manga as I consider every single one of them has its play/role into the manga, however I began to be very fond with Sakura and Tsunade every since I started to get interested more about Naruto and saw the unnecessary hate towards the two of them for no good reason of the fandom. Hope I didn't offend anyone with this and I won't be targeted, lol (has happened before)
What else can I say about me? Well, I work, I finished UNI and in my free time I relax around with friends.
I like PC games such as Sacrifice, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Starcraft and Diablo.
Anything else you want to you about me? Well, then just leave a message.
Nice to meet you all!
I so need to get you interested in manhwa before the others arrive.
Since you play video games - check out the video game section here.
Also visit the fun forum that's where we hangout - spam. We have a few video gamers in there too.
See the last person to post win thread there.
Welcome to MH !
So you like Narto? Then I have a question for you.
What is Sakura contribution plot-wise to naruto now?
Boss insulting my Bleach, and Charlie liking the post? You BOTH dead to me.
Chatte, what does your nick name mean? What's the little story behind it?
What theboss insult Bleach?
That's a serious rule 34 violations.
I will use them, heheh. xd
For the moment, we are yet to see, overall is this:
One of the major themes in Naruto is holding on to your humanity. As Kishimoto stated himself, he wanted to show her off as an irritating character with good intentions. He even told that he is fond of Sakura because from all the characters, she has a more human feel to her than the other characters.
But putting that aside, as I said it's about holding on to your humanity, emotions and, as well, protecting the ones you love. Becoming a tool in this old idea which seems to be discarded by many, but getting back in time look at Haku and Zabuza, Sasori, it was all about being a ninja tool and in order to be able to do that one must kill his emotions, yet, in the end, was that humanity that they came back to and they sacrificed themselves in order to make a way for a hopeful future where ninjas are more humanized, when all put aside their pains, hatred so on and so forth - and here we relate to Pein arc. Once again, great example of holding to your humanity.
Sakura revolving around Sasuke's existance (another of the points risen by others)? While this might be true up to a certain point, she developed more than that, she put aside her weakness for him and started working to get better and better. If you're going to bring me that thing with killing Sasuke, that once again represents an example of where emotions come in play.
Sakura failing to kill Sasuke happened because her emotions got in the way, yes, but look at the decision she had to make here. She took it upon herself to try and kill the boy she loves, the boy she previously sworn to protect, which goes against a major theme in Naruto. If Sakura killed Sasuke, she would have lost a part of herself that made her human and destroyed the ideal of protecting her loved ones. Since she is the EMBODIMENT of this ideal, it would have made no sense, story wise, for her to actually kill Sasuke. This is very obvious.
Sasuke represents that weak part that we all have. It's balance, yin and yang, you name it.
While Naruto is her strong part, Sasuke is her weak part. In Team 7 she always was the balance between Naruto and Sasuke.
While she was some sort of genius in her own way, like Sasuke, and untalented ninja as Naruto.
Genius because out of K11, Sakura's been noted the most intelligent. Intelligent as in book-worm, not tactician as Shikamaru, don't misinterpret that and untalented as Naruto because we saw that she didn't have anything special, she was just literally applying the teachings from ninja classes and Naruto was as well, untalented at the beginning, if you remember.
Wasn't able to do a proper bunshin.
So, as you can see, she has one of the biggest plot-relevance. You can dislike her but that doesn't mean she's not belonging to this story when she is centered around the most important idea/message of this manga.
But people usually see the surface of stories rather than the depths (I am talking overall, not just you ).
Sorry if I took it too far, heheh. ^_^
So yeah, she still is a character.
Long time ago, dunno if you guys know, there was a TV show called Mutant X.
I liked very much Shalimar Fox because her DNA mix was based on ferals/felines and as I like felines veeery much, I chose this name which in french means cat as female cat.
Though I am aware in slang means also another thing....
Okay okay, let's get you reading some manhwas?
What to check for in manhwa. Current popular ones are, the breaker, Noblesse, Tower of God.
We manwha fans are small in number so we want to grow in strength with a new fan. Sometimes referenced as Manhwa interchangeable with said comics for our movement.
You can liken our manhwa status on mh to that of little Naruto back in the early days of childhood in the leaf village you see.
Us little manhwa fans versus the evil and powerful manga verse / manga fans.
You see much in the same fashion we are not accepted for our non conformity. Because we are the CHANGE to the old system. We are boldly fighting the oppression/sors. For our way of the Manhwa.
So in short, we're asking new members to take part in the manhwa threads and start reading manhwa.

And we all know that the manga will center on the end fights now rather than messing with more romance and stuff.
But by any means be offended by what I said, I just found some parts of it really bad. But overall its a amazing manga.

^ The person above me has to be un-friended for those heinous and vile comments.
Don't you guys feel bad for trolling such a nice girls thread?
You were screwingly tossing words around in an unprecedented manner and she answered so seriously. In your place I'd be ashamed of myself.
Chatte, you checked out the new NFS:MW (the Criterion game)?
@Charlie, stop it with the manhwa vs manga wars >.> they both have their + and - sides don't insist unfriendliness in people hearts... T.T
This is for you.
I'm glad to be part of the same forum as you ^^.
