A rival, anti hero, anti villain, a byronic hero? All these opinions and objections about Sasuke's portrayal in this manga aimed for little children is very biased. For some reason, people seem to forget what Sasuke's character originally was, and some how it stems hatred for the character that he's being written to win because of his portryal as a arrogant rival type who doesn't get his just desserts. So tell me, what is Sasuke supposed to act like, Sasuke has a passive/agressive attitude now, and doesn't flay his supierority in peoples faces like he did in part one, but the problem to some fans he acts too flat and stale but it shows how much he matures and handles things. But if his character can't be this way to some fans as it offends them, what the hell is he supposed to be then? Humble? Nice? Naruto?
