I see a lot of people calling Kishimoto misogynistic for the way he wrote Sakura, and I feel those comments are very disrespectful to the mangaka who spent many years of his life making Naruto for us to enjoy. Kishi gave Sakura a lot of strong moments, like her standing up to sound Ninja in FOD arc, Sasori fight, her moments in the war and even being the final one to punch Kaguya. I don’t see what’s misogynistic about that, just because she doesn’t get as much screen time as Naruto and Sasuke?
No, Masashi Kishimoto was NOT a mysoginist. Naruto is a Shonen Battle Manga, where the targeted audience are young teenage boys, and so, it's a general trend that shonen mangas focus more on the male characters. IT DOESN'T MAKE THE AUTHOR A MYSOGINIST FFS. People should just stop with this MALE-FEMALE shit already. If you don't like a character, JUST SAY SO, don't start with this fake-feminism bullshit.
And no, I am not a mysoginist, I, myself am a female, but I have zero tolerance for FAKE-FEMINISM. PERIOD.
"Feminism", "mysoginism", "sexism" - These are very HEAVY words, people should stop throwing them around so carelessly, JUST BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE AN ANIME CHARACTER.
What people need to realise is that, the significance of a character is not determined by the number of fight scenes that the character has. Naruto series was all about bonds. It's was never just about fucking fight scenes.
Sakura Haruno is a very strong female character, who had a VERY MASSIVE CHARACTER GROWTH -
If you can't appreciate her achievements, and that of other female characters, then you are the one who is acting like a mysoginist, not the author.
Because, if Sakura Haruno really was a trashy character, then She wouldn't have such a LARGE FANBASE.
Calling the author and the characters(Sasuke) sexist/mysoginist, for no solid reason,whatsoever, just makes you sound stupid, tbh.
P.S. No, Sakura didn't have less screentime than Sasuke in Naruto. She has the second highest screentime in the entire series, first being the main protagonist himself.
