What I don't get is way people base the quality of ships on similarity?So what if sakura dosent have some tragic background,how does that make naruto,hinata,or karin "better" for him?If anything he needs someone who's never experienced that pain.
I know right? For some stupid reason so many extremists think that it’s somehow a requirement for Sasuke’s romantic partner to have gone through the same emotional pain that he did, otherwise she wouldn’t be able to “understand” him. That really is just so silly. There’s more to understanding someone than simply being able to empathise with their past.
- Sasuke understood Sakura well enough to know that she wasn’t acting like herself prior to the written Chuunin exam.
- Sakura understood Sasuke well enough to know that despite Naruto and Kakashi’s reassurances, Sasuke was still going to leave the village.
- Sasuke understood Sakura well enough to be one of the few people unsurprised at her show of strength during the war.
- Sakura understood Sasuke well enough to know that despite his outward words and actions, there was still good in Sasuke.
- Sasuke understood Sakura well enough to know that despite being captured by Shin, she wasn’t some helpless damsel in distress.
- Sakura understood Sasuke well enough to know that he was on that long mission for his family’s sake, and that their feelings were still connected regardless of the distance.
So those who spout that SS had an apparent lack of understanding are severely misinformed because it actually has plenty of it. It’s as if the extremists think that the pain of loneliness is all that there is to understand about people in this story. There’s so much more for Sakura to know and understand about Sasuke other than the slaughter of his clan or the loneliness that he went through. She knows about Sasuke’s likes, his dislikes, his techniques, his style of fighting, his ambitions, his mannerisms, his way of thinking - you know, his actual personality and character. That’s what actually makes you “know” and “understand” someone. Being privy to the specific truth about one aspect of someone’s past or the loneliness they suffered through, doesn’t mean you know or understand that person.
