Blame Tsunade. She apparently took over as Sakura's mentor in part 2. That's not Kakashi's fault if Tsunade's hogging her. Kakashi did play favorites with Sasuke during the Chunin exams, and I called him out on that ages ago, but it's not like he didn't make arrangements for Naruto. It's just Naruto found a better teacher then Ebisu, or whatever that guys name was.

RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
