Is Sakura really that bad?

Hello Friends, it's been a little while. I'm here to defend another hated anime character, this time around Sakura from the Naruto series.

What Makes Her So Bad?

Now I know friends, I know why you hate her and trust me I was right there with you. When we first meet her it seems as all she can say is "Sasuke help!" She's just a ditsy girl who's only job is stand stand there and be useless. She really makes all female leads look bad. So yes I was not a fan at first.

What She Became.

Let's take a moment and look at what she's become over the years. Yes she was annoying at first but she grew into a strong independent woman. It all started during the Chunin exams where she realized how insignificant she was and it was time to toughen up and become stronger.

Sakura's Training

Sakura took training under the 5th Hokage and one of the legendary Sanin Tsunade. She trained hard to become stronger trying not to be just a background character and eventually had one of the strongest punches in the hidden leaf village. Her ninjutsu and genjutsu were still not on the level of Sasuke and Naruto but that why she trained in another field of ninja are

Medical Ninjutsu

Sakura, under the guidance of Tsunade, became one of the Hidden Leafs most respected medical ninjas. She's helped countless shinobi including our main protagonist on a few occasions.

Not So Bad After All

Sakura is in no way my favorite Naruto character and at one point I hated her just as much as most do. Sakura grew into a character that was strong and much more likable over time. She saved the life of some of our favorite characters and proves to be a very strong women that girls can look up to, just not at first.

So what do you think? Do you agree? Am I way off base or out of line? Any characters you want me to defend?

Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading everyone and have a great day!
@UzumakiJess Thank you! Finally someone agrees with me. She also helped Naruto to try to get Sasuke. She only asked Naruto that one time because she wasn't allowed on the mission. After that mission, just like Naruto she tried her best to help get Sasuke back as well and finding her own strength within Team Seven. Lucy for Fairy Tail cries all the time but you don't see people calling her useless all the time... Sorry bout the rambling...
I find it a bit weird that people hate Sakura just because she is annoying at first. She is like most main characters in animes. They start out as useless and weak but they mature and become stronger. I'm sure the author made her that way for a reason. I had hopes for Sakura since the beginning because I knew she would grow up.
@KaminariHana I agree. I didn't like Naruto at first ether but I love him now. Give them time they'll leaden to grow
@Uzumakijess @LorettaHon Sakura is more than a cry baby, she legit is a great medical ninja and packs s hell of a punch. Thanks for your opinion
I love Sakura. Always have. I don't get why people hate on her. Sure she cries a lot and expects too much of Naruro to bring Sasuke back placing a huge burden on him but still, she's the furthest thing from useless.
