Characters are what you make them, and when it comes to anime, creators face some tough choices when it comes to bringing their stars to life. From josei to shonen, every demographic has different expectations for manga leads. Some heroes rise to the occasion while others fade into the background. And now the naruto fandom sparked a viral debate on social media about the show and its female ensemble.
The argument is not new as fans have long criticized it naruto and its manipulation of female characters. From Sakura to Tenten and even Karin, the women of the show have consistently fallen by the wayside while others like Rock Lee have thrived. Some argue that the show’s shonen demographics excuse the lack of care while others argue that the female characters in the story have more than we believe. So of course, it was only a matter of time before the debate resumed.

Get their names out of the ring
I agree, but let’s keep Tsunade and Konan out of that, because they were actually pretty well written.
Now, while Sakura wasn’t written phenomenally, of the female Konoha 12 she was the best written and at least had a full story. https://t.co/Wd2IzzV0Jy
