Unlike other manga-turned-anime series, Naruto Shippuden tries not to focus on the grandeur and flamboyance of just one character.
Protagonist Naruto Uzumaki is undoubtedly different, as he is the prime source of breath-taking adventures in the anime show as well as Masashi Kishimoto’s manga series. However, I really feel that besides him, warriors like Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Kakashi Hatake are equally endowed with all the combat qualities, and can’t be ruled out of the equation.
Take the example of Sakura Haruno, the only female ninja warrior, who is not just capable of striking a fatal blow on her enemies, but has at her disposal the power of healing others.
These innate qualities of Sakura give her the title of medical ninja. And that’s what makes her special and unique in her own way! Don’t you think her presence in Naruto Shippuden episodes is as essential as our flamboyant hero?
Of course it is!
The girl with a broad forehead has made her presence felt not just in anime and manga series, but in almost all the other mediums of entertainment, including video games.
It’s true that being the only female lead, she has the advantage of shining out very easily as the pick-of-the-lot. But, let’s not forget the Sakura’s ability to use jutsu to mend the fatal wounds of others and it is an important factor, adding onto her popularity.
I am pretty sure that her show of supernatural powers compels most of the anime fanatics to download Naruto Shippuden, even after catching it on air.
Well, we can’t help but shower words of praise on the manga artist Masashi Kishimoto, because it was his sublime imagination that had brought a standalone character like Sakura Haruno in the limelight.
The burgeoning popularity of Sakura will keep on soaring as long as the incredible anime has its existence as a genre.
And I am not just predicting it; it’s more of a firm belief!
