Don't start something you can't finish. Please update fast. Its not fair. You leave us readers out of the loop when you don't update. Now your story looks like too incomplete to be read by us readers. The more you update the more reviews you'll get. Its not the other way round

Loved this story! I'm sad that it looks abandoned - any hope you'll continue it? Either way, thanks for writing!

I don't usually tend to review the very first chapter, but this was brilliant. Neat, concise and clever in the way you constructed it. Really lovely.

I'm sure u haven't even written any worthy stories urself. U have no right to make that comment. It is very possible for sakura to become the dead last in class because of the following reasons:
1. Stigma: the stigma sakura receives because she is the jinchuriki will obviously affect her results. If u ask how then it means ure not smart enough to understand this story.
2. Low self esteem caused by the stigma.
3. The interference of kyuubis untamable chakra can interfere with sakuras natural chakra control, which will lead to her loosing the marks she would have normally gotten in academy exams.
If these points are not enough for u to think that its possible for sakura to become the dead last of the class, u shud probably check what ur smoking. i be like say u don kiss crase( that's pigin english by the way)
this message is to the reviewer without a working brain, spica75.

Aside from nerfing Sakura into a one-trick pony and Naruto getting a free lunch, this story still has potential.

It is a shame this story is discontinued. I wonder whatever has happened to you.

Seriously, you let Naruto keep extra healing, you give him naturally large chakra reserves even without kyubi AND better control than Sakura? AND magically gets the intelligence to aim towards being a medic nin? Naruto NEVER shows of any talent for non-practical learning or theoretical skill, which is severely needed to have a chance at being a medic beyond the basics, so he gets a free lunch here.
So basically, Naruto didnt loose barely anything from NOT being the jinchuuriki(instead he actually gains something that his change in circumstances does not explain), while Sakura gets penalised for being it AND not getting the perks except for healing?
By all accounts, the jinchuuriki effect on chakra reserves vastly outshines "normal" advantages. Noone would ever bother with the trouble of creating and keeping jinchuuriki if this Sakura is what the most powerful bijuu provides.
By official stats, the only other jinchuuriki listed is Gaara, and surprise, at start he has the same chakra rating as Naruto, despite holding just the one-tails. All other shown also clearly display massive chakra use even without drawing directly from the bijuu.
And then again, Sakuras talents are listed as genjutsu, intelligence and exceptional chakra control. Yes she has extra from the latter in canon due to low starting chakra(but Hinata, Shikamaru and Kiba are listed almost as low as Sakura and does not get stated as having any special control), but it is stated as a talent, not a result solely of low chakra.
Seriously, chakra exhaustion? For a jinchuuriki? From jumping?
Your writing is quite alright and the story concept has merit, but the above really shrieks of dissonance. Naruto pretty much only gets benefits from the changes, while Sakura is almost clobbered by the amount of extra disadvantages, or the removal of her advantages.
Considering dropping the story.

Why ever would Sakura become "dead last" from being a jinchuuriki? Even if the academy biased against her she is not without sources of information and help(her father and a reasonably friendly Mizuki as established by your story so far), and her intelligence is stated to remain(would be silly otherwise), which means the only thing that will truly be affected is her chakra control due to having more chakra. And i would say theres a pretty decent chance she would still end up with clearly better control than canon Naruto due to having her innate talent for it that he never had.
In canon she is the highest scoring kunoichi, with her best side being theory ( unaffected ), meaning that she should at worst be pushed a bit down for being worse at the "triple", except Narutos henge and kawarimi were never shown to have suffered in practice, meaning she would only really get a worse score from a bad bunshin.
And having the kyubi should give her a massive boost in stamina and chakra(not as much as Naruto as he is inherently better in strength and stamina, but also not THAT far from it), which would allow her to practise as much as she could ever wish.
Essentially, she should still be well capable of being highest or at least near highest scoring kunoichi anyway. Making her "dead last" feels like plothole model BIG, since you have provided no reason for that change. The improved(to unknown extent) Naruto is explained just fine due to Kushina being around and facing no bias, but Sakuras sudden idiot ball is just weird.

That was long, arduous... and honestly satisfying piece of a Sakura-is-the-jinchuuriki fanfic I've EVER read. You know? I frowned, then cried, then raged, and, in the end, I feel unfilled.
But maybe that's the purpose of this story? To discharge the need for a not so badass Sakura, and maybe spread the power balance between their whole team instead of just the boys? After all, Naruto still is a descendant of Asura.
Well, it was fun while it lasted and, while my fingers will click the 'follow story' icon with some distant hope for something as the status points the work is in progress, I won't expect to see more.
Thanks for sharing!
