In this tweet you can see how the results and positions of each of the candidates are going, being Sakura Haruno the big reveal, even leaving behind characters like Naruto and Sasuke who are very loved by fans. In addition, Minato Namikaze still holds the top spot, being momentarily chosen for the new spin-off of this franchise.
No doubt Sakura’s current position in the popularity poll narutop99 ha taken everyone by surprisesince it is known that this character did not have the best treatment in the original series, because was always relegated to the backgroundlosing prominence despite having a lot to offer the plot.
It should be noted that the new spin-off of Naruto: Sasuke Retsuden has given Sakura another chance to position himself as one of the most relevant characters in the seriessince in this story he has ventured with Sasuke to a new village to get a cure for the terrible disease that afflicts Naruto.
In addition, this new sequel serves so that a little more can be known about the bond and relationship of Sasuke and Sakuratold from another perspective, because in a few chapters it has been possible to see a very different facet of the relationship of both shinobis, being this to the liking of many fans who expected to see this development.
If Sakura is selected as the winner of the survey, this would be a great opportunity for this character to have the merit and recognition that she deserves through a new spin-off, because you have to remember that this is a very skilled kunoichi with incredible medical ninjutsu.
On the other hand, this advance of Sakura in the voting opens the possibilities that this can compete for first place with Minato Namikazealthough Itachi Uchiha must not be left out, who is in 2nd position and this is one of the top and iconic characters of this series, so the podium is well disputed.
