@taichokage: @SMXLR8:

There is a reason from Kishimoto:

Despite Sakura's popularity, she was not intended to be the heroine of the series. Kishimoto blames himself for this by describing himself as being unable to draw a good heroine character type. The best he came up with for Sakura is a girl who couldn't understand men, who is an irritating character but always well intentioned. Still, he became quite fond of Sakura and feels much of her personality can be found in just about everyone.

That clearly shows too. Lol. If I recall, he also said he wasn't good at drawing female characters either. Just comparing them to his rivals Oda and Kubo I'd agree with that too.

Kite, I thought he could have been cool. Usopp, yes, usopp. Yeah I know the series is still going, but he's been nothing but a disappointment since the timeskip. Ball from o-parts hunter is Usopp done right IMO.

@SMXLR8: Im not hating. There's still so much left of One Piece and there's more than enough time for Usopp to be redeemed. My gripe is, Usopp's been training for the past two years, and for what? He's still running away from all conflict.

@SMXLR8: Exept those two have never up and ran when hey were needed. What Usopp did with the Tontatta's was just pathetic.

@SMXLR8: Honestly while he came back (eventually) he still regressed as a character. Which kinda pissed me off because of his attitude once he made it back to sabody. But I don't wanna start ranting on Usopp, just saying he had potential. So agree to disagree I guess.

No need to repeat yourself. I was giving the author's notes. Besides, let @Kobra678: speak his mind. You don't need be sensitive and call people out on their opinions. We welcome all opinions. If someone hates Sakura or Usopp, it's not hurting you.

Uonumo Usui and Yatsume Mumyoi from Ruruouni Kenshin. Two potentially really badass characters that just had to run into Hajime Saito. Dammit Saito!!!!

I kind of agree. When he first appeared in the Fishman arc I was like yes Usopp is finally cool and then he became a wimp again. I'm sure he will EVENTUALLY step up as the Straw Hats star sniper though, his dads a top class sniper after all so maybe there'll be a mini arc there or something.

Still God Usopp was pretty cool and I liked how even Zoro played along with it in the most recent chapter.
