Uchiha Sasuke (Japanese: うちは サスケ, Uchiha Sasuke) () is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Kishimoto Masashi. Sasuke is a member of the Uchiha clan, a notorious ninja clan and one of the most powerful forces allied with Konoha (木ノ葉隠れの里). Before the series began, most members of the Uchiha clan were massacred by Sasuke's older brother Itachi Uchiha, making Sasuke one of the few members of the clan still alive. During his time as Team 7's genin, he gradually fell in love with his teammates Naruto Uzumaki and Haruno Sakura, but feeling too weak, he was forced to abandon his friends and his hometown to set out in search of strength. greater strength. He looked to Orochimaru to do just that. Sasuke appeared in a number of animated television series and related media, including video games, OVAs, Boruto: Naruto the Movie (2015), and the Boruto sequel manga series - Naruto Afterlife (2016) ). In the sequel, Sasuke is described as the silent guardian of Konoha and the teacher of Naruto's son Uzumaki Boruto. Kishimoto came up with the idea that Sasuke would be Naruto's rival. Although since the second half of Part I, Sasuke was developed into a dark character, but Kishimoto wanted to avoid portraying Sasuke as the villain. He felt designing Sasuke was a challenge and had trouble giving the character a suitable look. Even so, the author still likes to draw Sasuke more and more. In the anime adaptations of the manga, the Japanese voice actor for Sasuke is Sugiyama Noriaki, and the English voice actor is Yuri Lowenthal. Feedback to Sasuke in anime and manga publications has been mixed. Sasuke has impressive combat skills, plays an important role in the plot, is a worthy rival to Naruto, and is widely praised. However, he was criticized for being too typical of a rival in the mold of other shōnen manga characters and for displaying a cold personality. However, Sasuke's image later in the story and his maturity in Boruto's sequel earned him many positive reviews. Sasuke is ranked highly by Naruto readers in the popularity poll. He also became the subject of study by scholars. Character products, including moving models and keychains, have been released.
