I can't say there's any character that I think should have died.
When kakashi ''died'' when he fought yahiko, it seems it didn't bothered naruto that much. So it's more like jiraiya is the best sacrifice for naruto to be tested. And holla, it made naruto a one hell of a ninja.
Obito should have stayed dead.
trade sakura for neji
As for the thread, it seems weird that Sakura keeps coming up...beyond the general bashing of her character. The reasoning put forward seems to be that she's useless, and yet I could make a list that would go on for pages of people in the manga that were far, far less useful than her.....and their names haven't appeared. The list of people more useful than her throughout the story would seem significantly shorter. Am I to take it that this thread is meant to address deaths that would've contributed to the plot and development of the manga....or is it simply a thread for throwing out names of characters that one dislikes?
Exactly. I understand a number of people hate sakura but what's the reasoning behind her proposed death?
Ok I would say the hokages should have remained dead. Or they shouldn't have participated in the war.
I don't know about obito being dead. Yeah he's annoying and his reasons for all the atrocities he committed are pretty silly but without him, the story is so different.
Minato/kushina wouldn't be dead, itachi wouldn't have massacred the uchiha, naruto and sasuke without those loses are inconceivable. Akatsuki (the bijuu hunting one) wouldn't exist. Attack on konoha, hiruzen's death wouldn't have happened (because minato, itachi etc all available). Naruto would have all the love and attention he wants, sasuke would have his precious nii-san. Hinata wouldn't see naruto trying and would remain in her shell, jiraiya wouldn't have died, no pain arc etc etc .(the list is excruciatingly long). Only kakashi would be somewhat moody.
It wouldn't have any flavour. It would just be a story of happy people and all. The truth is as much as obito is hated (male counterpart to sakura), he is practically the most important character that influenced the most things. Maybe madara is above seeing as he drove obito onto that part by orchestrating rin's death to some extent.
Sad thing is, even their coming back wouldn't have been bad but it was handled so horribly by Kishi. But with knowledge of how things would turn out, I'd agree with you.
It's not unusual as she's one of the three or four main characters, and no one likes her infatuation with Sasuke.Quote:
