    Hm, could this flashback be...

    So getting her hair grabbed weakens her? Maybe not...

    If you don't look good, we don't look good.

    How did we get from there to "Sasuke is mine you two-bit whore back off"?

    Ino, wanna stop flashbacking before Sakura gets brain damage?

    Well that's certainly one way to get a haircut.

    Also, while the story never made this perfectly clear, I think Sakura was the type of character that thought being a great ninja was simply according to what she studied in textbooks. I mean, we've heard how she's one of the smartest among her peers in the academy and how she's memorized codes and ninjutsu basics. But good has that done when out in actual missions against dangerous ninja or when practicing survival instincts like in the forest of death? Not to mention she has nothing special to make her potentially powerful compared to Naruto and Sasuke as of this episode. Putting all of that together, it makes enough to me that that she's not the strongest or most strong-willed in the real shinobi world and how she's grown to be so self-conscious of that.

    Does Sakura biting a sound ninja's arm down while getting punched until she risks getting a concussion proves she's as strong as Naruto or Sasuke yet? No, but it definitely proves she really cares to be strong-willed and has the potential.

    Wow, that is an epic haircut!

    Missed the episode, but wished I got a chance to check it out. As much as I like to mock Sakura, it would be nice to see character development from her. Considering how important hair is to Japanese femininity (the old saying "A woman's hair is her life." comes to mind), Sakura cutting her hair is a major sacrifice.
