Nobara is What Sakura Was Supposed To Be

Nobara Kugisaki was a bit arrogant at the beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen, especially after Yuji helped her out of a tough situation. Over time, her personality shines, and she becomes more likable.

On the other hand, Sakura has a rough start in Naruto, mainly due to her insensitivity to Naruto and freezing up during crucial moments. It takes some time for her character to change. It’s important to note that Sakura starts as a child, so comparing her beginning to Nobara’s isn’t fair.

Nobara is “Badass” Female Character in Jujutsu Kaisen

Nobara embodies both femininity and strength better than Sakura. Unlike Sakura, she actively participates instead of just watching others in tough situations. She doesn’t compromise her femininity to be strong, and she doesn’t follow clichés by being overly feminine to be seen as strong.

Nobara’s character strikes a realistic balance between both qualities, reflecting how real women can be in comparison to Sakura. Additionally, Nobara’s fighting style with a doll and a hammer, which is a unique way of fighting, is cooler than Sakura’s who use to summon Naruto while in trouble.

One fan thinks Nobara did well in Jujutsu Kaisen, even better than Sakura in Naruto. However, they also say Sakura is unfairly disliked. This reflects that the preference between characters may depend on what you enjoy in a story and the qualities you like in a character.
