Question: why do you think people love Sarada so much? I've tried asking a few people I know and they just say stuff about how she's cute or a better Sasuke than Sasuke was. Honestly, she kind of irritates me, the same way Boruto does. They both just feel like rip offs of their dads, but one is gender swapped (which makes me nervous that they're gonna pair the two up....) and they both are just not nearly as interesting. Just wanted to know your thoughts on her
Sorry, I just sent in the ask about Sarada. I wanted to clarify that the only reason I’d be unhappy about them being paired up is because it feels like the creators thought “hey, Sasuke and Naruto had such great chemistry, but they’re both boys so we can’t have that. Let’s make their children just like them, but one boy and one girl! That way no gays.”
Okay, so, I personally adore Sarada. She’s a precious little Salad, and here’s why I like her:
Her personality. Sarada is a sweet kid and says what needs to be said, but she also has that bashful side and it’s adorable. She’s also a character that goes through a rough patch and has a good reason for it. Sarada has been left out of the loop regarding her father for so long she takes things into her own hands and goes after him - he character development and story-line are something I find great.
Sarada’s dream to become hokage is also something I can appreciate - she wants to relate to people. She wants to connect with and get to know as many people as she can, and I don’t see how she could be faulted for that.
So her overall character…I just like her for her overall character.
But I will say, despite everything I like about her, what irks me is something that also greatly irks me about other Boruto kids. Her abilities…are far too strong for her age and starting level. Using that strength Tsunade made famous without training for it?? Before she even graduated from the academy?? Because she “inherited naturally advanced chakra control”?
Inheriting the ability to better control chakra doesn’t automatically give one the ability to use techniques that require months to years of training. At least it shouldn’t. If anything it should give the person the ability to get the hang of techniques like tree walking and water walking quicker than others.
