Before you jump to conclusions, we need to be crystal clear with this. I’m not a Sakura fan. In fact, I don’t even like girls in Naruto, except for Uchiha Sasuke. But with all the shipping wars surfacing due to the later chapters, it’s hard to stay neutral when you’re getting sucked in to it. Besides, if there’s anything more entertaining than watching two parties quarreling about something so ludicrous, it is fueling the said quarrels just for your own amusement. And I will make sure that I do my part of it.
|Yes, I'm gonna say so much shit about both of you.|
I don’t plan to beat around the bush. Hinata fans hate Sakura mainly not because she’s a weak character in terms of depth, or not because Sakura has flaws as a kunoichi, but because Sakura is “in the way” of their supposed canon pairing; which is NarutoXHinata. Deny all you want, suckers, but this is the bitter truth. You deface Sakura’s pictures, and write about how ugly and flat-chested she is because that’s the only way you can release your rage of knowing that Naruto doesn’t give two shits about Hinata’s romantic feelings towards him, and continues have such feelings towards Haruno Sakura.
I don’t even plan to explain how irrational and immature that is and burst your pretty bubble, because I can understand that defacing Haruno Sakura is the only consolation that helps you sleep at night. And I can even name a few foolish things NaruHina fans say just to convince themselves that Naruto will not end up with Sakura. Such as…
"Sakura hits Naruto all the time, lol. She doesn’t deserve him, lol.”
Two words, soldier: comic relief. This is not a new thing in Television. People have been using physical pain as a form of comic relief since the days of The Three Stooges right up to Tom and Jerry. And the Japanese definitely like to go all out with it. There is always an abuser in every manga, or at least one scene of a girl punching the living day lights out of a guy because the said person peeked under her skirt. If you haven’t been able to follow this pattern, get out of your delusional world of Hinata’s bouncing breasts and start thinking about things in a more logical manner.
I wish I could do this to our fandom.
Sakura doesn’t beat Naruto because she hates him; she beats him because it’s the nature of her character to be violent, just like Tsunade. And Naruto happens to be on the receiving end mostly because he’s her teammate and his idiocy provokes Sakura’s violence. And let’s not forget when Kushina, Naruto’s actual mother, punched the absolute shit out of him when they first met. See, you can’t hold these things against them. They don’t do it out of hatred, it’s something called character.
Do you hate Kushina and Tsunade because they’re violent? I didn’t think so. You just needed a reason to hate Sakura.
“Sakura is a fangirl, lol. So she’s a bitch, lol.”
We all know about Sakura’s obsession with Uchiha Sasuke and Uchiha Sasuke’s hair. She has been criticized very much for this by the fandom. And mostly the Hinata fanbase like to point this out as a mere crush while emphasizing that Hinata’s feelings towards Naruto is nothing but pure love. And this is followed by saying how Sakura is ignorant to Naruto’s feelings every time she calls for Sasuke even if Naruto is standing right there.
I call bullshit on this. People just refuse to understand that Sakura and Hinata are both fangirls, but the difference is, while Sakura was blatant about it Hinata acted just plain creepy. Sakura’s universe revolves around Sasuke as much as Hinata’s universe revolves around Naruto. Sakura was ignorant towards Naruto’s feelings as much as Hinata was ignorant towards everything else that’s not Naruto, which includes her family and her sports bra. But the difference now is that while Sakura is little by little acknowledging Naruto’s feelings, Hinata remains exactly the same today.
Hinata fans, it’s high time you stop being such hypocrites.
“Sakura is useless, lol. She can’t do shit, lol.”
And here comes the inevitable. Certainly Sakura is one of the most hated in our fandom. And once we start hating someone, we dig up little things about them and extend it in a way that causes us to hate them even more. I know this very well, I’m an expert on it. And Hinata fans don’t waste one minute to take the bait when we see Sakura’s dependency on Naruto, as if Hinata is any better.
|No, you're not.|
‘Sakura is useless’ is the most popular yet the most ignorant and exaggerated phrase to ever trend on the fandom. And I know the fanboys are gonna throw their high heels and purses at me if I said she is not useless at all. The way I see it Sakura has done more for the series than any other kunoichi have.
Sakura had protected both Naruto and Sasuke back in the Forest of Death when they had passed out, created an antidote and saved Kankuro, helped to defeat Sasori, saved Hinata’s life in Pain’s Arc, saved a bunch of other people in the hospital during the Pain’s Arc, healed Naruto on many occasions, strengthened the intelligence of the Shinobi Alliance when she found out about the white Zetsu, and currently is on the frontline of the battlefield helping out the team.
|I admit, I just needed an excuse to put up this picture.|
But why does the fandom refuse to acknowledge it? Because it’s Sakura.
I know what you’re thinking. Not every NaruHina fan or Hinata fan hates Sakura. Bitch, I know. Not everyone is stereotypical, but you gotta agree that the majority is. And this hate is amplified to such an extent that people feel the need to degrade someone just so they can upgrade the other. However, the bottom line is: NarutoXHinata is just as one sided as NarutoxSakura. And NarutoXSakura is just as one sided as SasukeXSakura. And SasukeXSakura is just as one sided as OrochimaruXSasuke.
|Doing this wont make your NaruHina canon, dipshits.|
And are you a NaruHina fan who is deeply offended after reading this? Perfect.
