    I dont get the love for itatchi??? Like I get everything he did for his brother but for the first half of the series we are taught to hate him but with Naruto and Kakashi you're supposed to love them the whole time. I dont get why yall are so pissed about that. Also if I see "light" one more time I'm gonna lose my mind, Ryuk and L deserve that title 10x more than Light. Light was a fucking asshole

    People need to chill. They clearly said they were only picking one character per series despite there being many great characters in many shows. Kakashi is a totally decent pick for Naruto. There are many other characters in that show that they could’ve chosen that would actually be worthy of some hate, but that character isn’t one of them.

    Kakashi doesn’t struggle keeping track of time.
    He’s always late to his appointments because he spends too much time visiting his dead (or so he thought) friend’s memorial.
