are you anti-tenten too?  
i don't know if this post is off topic or not because it deals with mostly tenten... but since tenten automatically has neji in the package i'm hoping it's still in topic. harhar...

so~ over on ff.net a reviewer wanted to "wake me up" on how useless and stupid tenten is by bashing her. sure, sure everyone's entitled to their own opinion [duh] but i really don't see a reason why tenten is well... hated to that degree. i mean, she has very little to no character development, most of her character actually comes from fanfiction or fanart. where does all this anti-tenten come from?

[please don't tell me it's because she lost that fight to temari...]

then there's the arguement that neji doesn't deserve someone like tenten because he's all strong and good looking and what not. but we've went over the neji and tenten dynamic already. it sort of makes sense... right? plus, appearance wise- i think tenten's the most attractive female genin in the series.

there were other things mentioned but i really don't care what the person wrote aside from bashing tenten.

i am not complaining about a stupid flame or whatnot because that's juvenile and stupid. what i do want to know is since when was tenten such a hated character? and why?

character bashing is just uncool. **pats tenten on the head**

ren-sama, the same person waltzed over to me and started spouting nonsense! [sob] THE MADNESS. THE STUPIDITY. MY IQ HAS DROPPED SIX POINTS. WHY!?!?

Tenten is not a hated character, by any means. There's just some moron meandering around FF.net.

Right. I spend a lot of time on anime discussion forums (ie, talking to stupid people) and there are a lot of people who are in a kind of DBZish Powerful = Good Character mindset. You know, people who like Naruto just because he has the Kyuubi. They tend to hate Tenten (and Sakura and Ino) just because they've all only lost fights badly, and never had any "cool" moments.

So that's where I think this crap comes from.

Hi ren113,

I saw that comment, actually, and it really made me angry and your and Tenten's behalf. I suppose some people have nothing better to do than go about bashing characters in reviews.

Personally, I thought your story was quite sexy! ;)

I quite agree with Farli that in many ways I think it's Neji who isn't good enough for Tenten. Until he really learns to appreciate someone's devotion to him, he's totally not worthy of her! The hope is that he's come around a bit in the manga, but we'll see...

I tend to not like portrayals of their relationship as one-sided on Tenten's part, which is why in my stories I try to bring out Neji's uncertainties and vulnerabilities a bit more!

That's rather sad... :( I've never thought of TenTen as a hated character - sometimes I even thought nobody knew her... :( And I don't think a huge population of Naruto fans hate her.... Hopefully, what I think is true.

I agree with farli too (despite being an obsessive Neji fan) In some ways, TenTen deserves better than Neji... he was rather cold to everyone, and perhaps her as well... It could possibly be that way, but the other way around about Neji deserving someone better than TenTen is rather absurd... After all, where else would Neji find someone else who would always be there for him, etc.?

I agree with you too... character bashing is so uncool...

Until now, I've hardly heard of anyone bashing Tenten. Mostly it's Sakura or Sasuke in the packs I run in, and i admit, in the begining I couldn't stand either of them myself at first but grew to accept them. Even if the current arc makes me one to drop kick Sasuke a little lol. Most fans either love her as much as we do or hardly know she exists unfortunately.

You're doing right to ignore the little turd. and your story was excellent. Anyone else says anything, we're all gonna still write and dream of the pair together, right guys?

Newbie here, to the NejiTen fandom and the community
I've never seen Tenten bashing before. o.o That sucks majorly.

On the Neji-doesn't-deserve-Tenten thing, I can kinda see both sides, but then how often have they really shown Team Gai interacting from Neji or Tenten's POV? Usually we just see it from Lee's POV (maybe Gai's), and Lee brings out the not-so-great side of Neji. (I think Hinata is the one that brings out the worst in him, seeing as he tried to kill her in the preliminaries...) Sasuke's never trained with Sakura, if I recall correctly. But Neji did have Tenten train with him when he was figuring out the Kaiten. So he was trusting her with a) his life, because I'm sure he asked Tenten to aim to maim (so if he failed in forming the Kaiten correctly, he'd be screwed); and b) a big-ass secret, because as a branch family member he's not supposed to learn/know how to do the Kaiten. For someone as cold, arrogant, and internalizing as Neji, that is a *lot* to trust someone with.

Uhm, yeah. *tosses two pennies up*

ok, this is my first post and everything, but i think whoever flamed you for that is just plain stupid. I personally love both Neji and Tenten and if the two of them end up together, I'd go crazy with joy. So whoever bashes Tenten for no reason really needs to get a life.

Of course, that's all in my humble opinion ^.^

... Oh, I happened to know that there's quite a lot Tenten-bashers in FF.net, sadly. For me as a writer, she is a complete girl version I could develop in many of my ways: her little character development is just excellent, then we writers could develop her as much as we like, as long as we stay in a line: she is a tomboy weapon mistress.

Ah, Tenten's not good-looking? I personally think she's cute with her hair in two buns like that. Why would someone bash someone's appearance, anyway? Nobody's perfect. A perfect girl would just simply make me bored. Duu--uuh!!
Ah, yes, I think Tenten is the most attractive female genin in Naruto, too.

Anti-Tenten... I don't really know the history of it. Probably they come from watching the TenxTema fight in the chuunin arc. Well, she lost, so I didn't really get it, too. There's really no point hating her, for me, fictional characters are just too... fictional to be hated xP. Why would they hate her, anyway? She doesn't get in any relationships going on... except probably those who LOVES NejiHina to death. They would PROBABLY think that she is in the way...

I don't think that Neji is too good for her, or she is too good for Neji. Let's face it already - I'm a die hard fan of NejiTen, and I think they complement each other. Not going to argue too much about this, since this topic is about Tenten-bashers, right?

I can't answer your question directly, though, I need to get around for a while and check what's going on. Tenten is my favorite character, and I couldn't see why people bash her so much. Try asking on an anti-Tenten community and you'll get the answers directly, bluntly, and probably cruelly.

Ah, may I know the reviewer? I want to read what she or he wrote at that time... Just wanna see from his or her point of view, too.

Just my two cents.

Heh, I don't like NejiTen (my icon gives it away...)...but I love Tenten to bits. x3; *tries to pull out LeeTen banner*

then there's the arguement that neji doesn't deserve someone like tenten because he's all strong and good looking and what not. but we've went over the neji and tenten dynamic already. it sort of makes sense... right?

Okay,I may not like NejiTen, but despising a girl because she has lower standards than the guy? Nu-uh, unacceptable. DX

Yes, Tenten seems to admire Neji. Calling him awesome, best, and whatnot, I view her as his...sincere and composed fangirl.
