Hey, i thought that i posted here....oh well.
First off, i love Hinata. She's so cute! And she can kick ass, she's got the potential. She's my Hime ^_^.
I also like Kisame. Not many people like him. But i do. He's scary, but he's not hot headed. And he's pretty powerful, with his Samehada and his suiton jutsus!
I also like Itachi. I would most likely be in the minority that thinks that Sasuke is an idiot. Itachi can roll him over like a tank. And we don't see that many genjutsu users around, do we. So he's pretty cool. And he's not the homicidal maniac i know we all think he is. He does stuff for a purpose, i tell you! Even the murdering of his Clan had a purpose...
I would probably be the only person, but Choji is one of my favorite. I didn't like him that much in the beginning. But when he fought against Jirobou, he looked so cool and kicked major keester. He rocks! I hope that he continues to rock in the second part of Naruto i.e. 2 1/2 years afterwards.
Other characters to note would be Kakashi, Neji, Tsunade, Jiraya and Yondaime.
