>>102309983>Healing was useful
Literally "I need something for this character to do: the power." If there wasn't a need to give her something to do those characters would just get better, as they do in Shonen without healers.>kinda misinformed
I read it myself as a kid. She does nothing of value. She cries and screams and bitches a lot, Kishimoto tries to put her over by making her "smart" (but also shits on her for being SO oblivious, this was a SPYING exam, not a book exam! it's like the other anon said, he straight up doesn't respect characters who aren't the super special cool dudes), she cuts her hair to show how she's matured and yet doesn't really change as a character, gets into a bitch fight with her friend that's really pathetic for both characters, and does fuck all to the timeskip.>>102310077
You might be legitimately autistic if an author's half-assed attempts to pretend their characters aren't just standing around (l-look, they're healing/strategizing/helping to do a group thing, they're doing stuff!) convince you the characters aren't just standing around. Pro Tip. If the scene is functionally the same if you remove the character, they're doing nothing important. They're either there so they don't have to be fadangled into the scene when they do matter, to give reactions to fill time, or because the author is a lazy hack.
