Before /co/ hated tumblr, we had gaia online. Although most people here nowadays hate it because they think they're supposed to.
With that being said, there's nothing really wrong with it, just a generic shonen manga for kids that got popular.

Godly child arc, teenager arc slowed the pace, took too long to warm up to Sai and new Commander, Akatsuki encounters carried the story, but they fucked it up at the Pain arc, interesting back story, retarded actions in the current world due to slow pacing still. Everything should of been bigger leading up to the explosion, then they deus ex the fuck out of it. Naruto never recovered from then on. At least Hinata shined in an entire Village of scared fucks.

Triplets of three speak the truth.
The moment it had become a meme to hate Naruto many people started to take it seriously and some people are still legitimately scarred by Narutards from Gaia and other anime forums.

Otherwise nobody would give a shit and it would get exactly the same treatment as Bleach, where people are joyfully wallowing in their own ironic shittaste and discuss the actual series they simply have become attached to instead of bombing these threads to hell.

Turned to trash later on. Naruto's 'hardworking untalented underdog prevails' characteristic was thrown out the window (hey naruto ur actually the chosen one with a famous father and you're some reincarnation of ninja jesus' son lol), and near the end of the series it turned into wizard wars. Can't be fucked typing more when you can just read one of the pastas but that's the gist of it. Also one of the shittiest fanbases which have settled in Cred Forums thanks to moot doesn't help its likeability here.

I guess I should have said "never giving up" instead. But you're right. He was a gimp who got carried by special privilege powers his whole life and kishi had the nerve to frame him as a kid who gets bullied because he sucks.

Naruto is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal user can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the jutsus, peculiar, colorful clothes, the whole ninja faggotry and everything about the Naruto world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall preachiness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.
Naruto is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to Cred Forums, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every user to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Naruto threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.

Problem is that all anime is like that now. Most of it is derived from manga and LNs that are fucking terrible but create entertaining things while excluding important shit. Overlord did AMAZINGLY poorly at making the novel into an anime.

Charles Watson
Charles Watson

It's just poorly written and a big mass of wasted potential. It didn't even start particularly good, everyone has nostalgia for Zabuza and the chuunin exams but both of those are pretty much complete shit shows. There are a couple of interesting arcs such as the ending fights of the exams, most of Hidan and Kakuzu, most of the Pein arc, and the Sasuke retrieval arc is easily where the series hit its high point. It, just like all jump series, has a very bloated cast and most of the interesting characters are either underdeveloped or mostly ignored.

Basically, Naruto is a mess.

Meandering plot that ultimately decides to eschew proper foreshadowing to instead bring up new concepts and immediately execute them. It's clear the author had no idea where he was actually going until the very very end. It's more like a bunch of interesting ideas haphazardly duct taped together than a coherent universe, very much made up on the fly.

Despite everything I don't really hate it or feel it is especially bad. But on the whole it's not great. I would give it a 6/10. It beats the average but is bogged down by its inadequacies, but remains enjoyable.

Jordan Sanchez

Levi James

They are both terrible in pacing, in what they accomplish (pretty much nothing outside of introduce characters), and just general content. What kind of retard makes the majority of their first arc a training arc? Then you have chuunin exams that put the nail in the coffin that these aren't ninjas but some manner of battle wizards.

Remember how the first part of the test was about stealth and subterfuge but then it became about just some bullshit about conviction? That's pretty much what always happened in the chuunin exam until they just decided it was a tournament instead.

Remember 2 out of the first 3 arcs are training arcs. This shows how mixed the priorities of naruto were.

Lincoln Martin

My main problem was Pain and post Pain naruto

When he attacked Konaha and killed everybody you can't just resurrect them like yeah naruto you're cool here I'm a sociopath but MUH PEACE NO HATE makes so much sense so I'm going to kill myself so you don't even have to kill me thus making any kind of struggling for you.

That is called killing a story. Why game of throne is praised ? Because it does the exact opposite.

Past that naruto went to shit. Absolute shit.
Edo Tensei is just fan service
and a bullshit excuse to round up every villages against a common enemy SO the only way to make combat relevant was to fight zombies who fight against their will
Uchihas are completly overpowered its not even funny anymore
Naruto is a fucking Mary Sue
True Last boss fight is worse than the worst final fantasy, others dimensions ? Really ?

It's because naruto had this hype, where it started off pretty interesting and practically over night became absolutely terrible. Also people didn't want to associate with the naruto fanbase so anyone that was watching the serious just to kill time, just to follow up or for whatever reason those people had to pretend to not like anime, the naruto fanbase basically destroyed the reputation of people who watched anime, at least where i live that was the case.

Liam Reed
Liam Reed

To be serious for a second, Naruto wasn't bad.
It had a decent story, very good action scenes that didn't rely in power levels and instead in how you use ninjustu. It had possibly the best tournament arc I've seen since Hunter X Hunter, the serious villians were all great and the characters were fun.

This lasted all the way up until I'd say the Sasuke vs Naruto fight. From there the story, especially in the anime, fell flat and was littered with pointless crap and comedy (comedy is not Naruto's strong point at all).

It picked up again in Shippuden. The Akatsuki were now the main threat and god was it great. It was so great! I loved every second of it, until after Pain. After the fight with Pain the series just lost any traits of being good. It was now all about super stupid eye techniques and full on power levels.

"Ninjustu? Wtf is that lol sharigan warp to another dimension lol oh no countered by super duper rasengan number 45 sharp edges edition"

Yeah it had a good run, but like so many anime these days, I think it should have ended after a certain fight.

DBZ should have ended with Frieza.
Bleach should have ended with Aizen.
Hitman Reborn should have ended with Byakura.
This should have ended with Pain.

Mason Bailey
Mason Bailey

Nothing really. It was a fun, exciting series full of anger, sadness, real conflict, life on the line, and compelling characters. Now something like love live...there you just have an extremely uninteresting setting followed by uninteresting characters, and a premise that's just boring. Nothing important is at stake. If they win the contest, yay everything will be right again! Now there's the definition of unimaginative.

Power levels get out of control, fights drag on, a lot of interesting plot points get ignored to focus on one blander one instead of the fun ones.
I would have preferred to see it's side cast fleshed out instead of having flashbacks in flashbacks.

Flashbacks kill the show and it's a shining example of how not to use them, ongoing events are always more interesting no matter how hype a flashback is.

This was never the topic, at all. When will you retards stop repeating this shit? It was the focus of Rock Lee but he got BTFO by Gaara and Sasuke. Lee himself admits that hard work alone means nothing.

Not to mention that Sasuke and Neji while being geniuses were still shown training a lot in order to become that powerful.

Naruto was just about never giving up and believing in your path, literally never it was about hard work.

Most of the better elements were suggested by editor-san, a common theme with shounen manga.

Kishimoto also wasnt very good at writing characters, and yet put that drama at the forefront instead of worldbuilding. You dont fucking show a map in the 12th chapter and then never visit these places.

On the whole it was alright though. Better then bleach and never quite got as bad as dressrossa.

Kevin Bennett

Sasuke was never wrong, he wanted to kill sakura.
He´s pretty much the only one in the manga who knew how we felt, she had to be stopped.

Instead she raped him and kept the uchiha clan alive with her spawn, which is something even powerful uchiha know is a bad thing.

This is the great tragedy of Naruto. All that buildup about how things like Chakra limitations and specialization get thrown out the window and instead people start spamming techniques.

I also didn't like how the rinnengan powercreep hampered the climax. Early Naruto avoided power levels by having unique interactions between styles of fighting and ninja arts. The moment it came out that the only way to beat someone was to have the rinnengan the series went full DBZ.

Although honestly, ever since Naruto went to learn the Rasengan the series had been moving away from the pre-chuunin exam definition of ninja.

Sure it was

It used to be on the line of gag shounen, with an innocent crush and slow progression of training. That is about as shounen as it gets

then Sakura lead to nowhere, what used to be a one shot berserk moment now became a failsafe, and there was never any consequences from the fox either, Sasuke had a better curse going on

naruto, mah boy, you and your edgy faggot boyfriend are the chosen ones to save the ninja world!

descendant of the original creator of Ninjutsu's two sons

there are two genetic lotteries, one that will grant you crazy amounts of chakra, just because, as well as granting you access to powerful magical eyes! the other one gives you an abominable amount of stamina, strength and chakra as well so you can go toe to toe with the former one

oh right, there are a total of nine mystical beasts with an near unlimited amount of chakra, here's the most powerful one of them, for you the main character, the chosen one.
now go naruto! go and teach the audience how it's all about hard work and striving for your ideals, nonsense such as genetics have nothing to do with success in this world, right, rock-lee?

This a thousand times, Naruto's childhood makes less and less sense as the chapters go on.

And those are the main characters.

Adrian Parker

there are two genetic lotteries, one that will grant you crazy amounts of chakra, just because, as well as granting you access to powerful magical eyes! the other one gives you an abominable amount of stamina, strength and chakra as well
that's one of the things that never made any sense to me, isn't chakra supposed to be based on your stamina in the first place? so having tons of stamina should mean that you have tons of chakra too right?

on top of that wasn't kushina's uzumaaki chakra supposed to be super speshul and powerful too? so what's the difference between uchiha and senju really?

this whole mythological backstory is a total clusterfuck

Naruto was like a musician who didn't know when it was time to retire. It started off so damn strong that no one could touch it except maybe Bleach. Then mistakes started happening right after the Sasuke retrieval arc. Filler, characters gaining little development, people dying for the sake of dying, an arc that was literally called out for plagerism from One Piece, and an ending that was good enough to just end all of the pain and misery yet LOL TIME FOR BORUTO. Naruto was a legend that could've remained a legend but took things too far.

Jackson Gomez

Problem is the original editor left which was basically the guy that kept everything in check and nice.

One Piece is not the same at all. Luffy is not blessed with any special powers besides the ones that were given to him at the start of the series and ones that anyone with the aptitude can acquire through training (Haki). He doesn't just "unlock" power for free in the middle of a fight. They're ones that he has before going in and chooses to use at that time.

Same thing goes for every other character in the show.

Because the main three characters, which the plot primarily revolves around (naturally), are mostly unlikable except for maybe Naruto.

Sasuke is a cunt throughout the entire series. He became friends with Naruto as a child somehow but we don't really get to see them interacting in a particularly positive manner.

Sakura starts out as a useless bitch with an average teenage crush. She actually is useful for some time into Shippuden, but then she goes back to being useless. In Shippuden she's clearly obsessed with getting him back, but why? Just for that little crush? It's even harder to believe after he attacks her and shows he clearly doesn't give a shit about her.

Other than issues with the main characters, it's fairly inoffensive outside some battle shounen cliches, asspulls, and having parts that go on too long.

Nathan Russell
Nathan Russell

the characters are unlikable and their relationships are completely unbelievable, naruto and sasuke must be one of the worst "friendships" ever portrayed in fiction

What are you even on about? He literally learnt shadow clones in one night which leads me to believe that he had had no serious training before that whatsoever. Every training that follows only reinforce this belief of mine

The words of Jiraiya doesn't really mean jackshit, because while they were traveling together Naruto learnt a fucking rasengan in a week.

Explain. His gears are just 'blow/pump circulatory system, make larger limbs and blow air into muscles'. It all follows a logical progression based more on cartoon physics (circulatory -> bone -> muscle -> nerves?).

His backstory is that he spent a large part of his childhood fighting shit, something know to make you stronger in this setting.

The asspull would be armour haki, but that's given to many characters becuase logia are OP and is a skill attainable by any. Conquerors, could be genetic (as implied by a few characters remarking 'he is X's son, it's no surprise he has it as well, used both to refer to Luffy and Ace). What we know of conquerors so far is that it's meant to manifest is very few and often incredibly arrogant/strong willed individuals. Conceptually it makes sense that these arrogant 'I am the fucking best' thinking characters would more frequently have this power, not that it is predominate gained through lineage. We may be proved wrong down the road and Conquerors is pure genetics.

Aspects of this. Village should have all fucking died with pain, same goes for hinata etc. TnJ being a thing after 20 years of going down that path you're not going to be talked out of it when you're this fucking close and it's ingrained in you that as a solution it will fucking work.

The series needed to deal with other nations, their rulers and politics outside of kages. Show us the world before war, the different nations and events that can cause war from a bunch of scrub 'lords'. Why do kages/hidden villages bow down to these lords/nations and then employ child soldiers?

We needed to see more the Sot6P lore far earlier, it's been some mere 400 years or so since magic came to this world, somehow in this time the worlds gone from a small few people with 'all magic spells/traits' to incredibly diluted blood creating the clans with each trait. How the fuck did everyone forget the worlds lore/backstory? Why was it not delivered to use early on?

I could write on for a long time over grievances, missed opportunities, plotholes and what ifs.

The exact moment Naruto turned to shit was when Haku died, right at the beginning. Before that there was some promise, the art is nice and it seems like there's a plot forming, but that fight showed a complete lack of story composition skills on Kishimoto's part.

They set Zabuza up as a huge threat, like he's going to be a major villain, then have Haku as a major mystery. Then they show up for a second time, everything is explained in a horribly clumsy flashback/info dump right before the fight, then they both die before actually getting to do something. The fight is also boring as shit, the characters have poorly defined abilities and as a result any fight can turn into "oh, I actually had another power that's even more unbeatable than your unbeatable power". As a result there isn't really anything interesting about them, because at any point anyone can just pull some random new power out of his ass to explain why he's going to win now.

These trends set the tone fro the whole series. The number of times that a fight is between two characters that were just introduced with a lengthy flashback right before the fight instead of having been introduced at an earlier point is huge, especially during the Chunin exams. This is the absolute worst way to present characters, since it makes it hard to really care about them. Basically, we're getting their motivations before their behavior, making their motivations less meaningful.

There are also only three female characters that actually matter, and two of them are motivated entirely by their shared desire to fuck an edgy, angry jackass. None of the woman have real personalities.

Nolan Morgan

Some spells seem to be all about:

make some mana
follow this order of seals
result

His academy days demonstrate he's shit, sometimes trying hard and failing miserably. He's not even trying to act out during that, he's just that shit.

Later on element-infused mana is learned, he gets this and other powerups over the rest of the series by abusing a spell others can't because of his increased mana capacity. These are things that other characters much younger or same age as him were able to do (elemental spells). The hardest thing he did was a ball of mana, which very few people were taught, what about it made it so hard? More so the fact it was a 'secret' technique and wasn't about actually casting a spell, which naruto only ever seemed to use a rotation of 6 or so.

Why is it that he was able to memorize and perform shadow clone in a few hours but couldn't do other really basic spells? Plot convenience really, he's well below average during the fist half of the series except when his sealed evil power up makes him a haxx determinator.

The scale at this point during the chunin exam is as big as the summons, there's none of that lazer beam, explosions incredibly large scale terrain destruction we seen with the first 4th tail. I think that was the point of no return. Even the orochi-3rd fight wasn't as large scale. And that was back when 'holy shit he's so powerful he literally makes water from nothing' was still a thing.

After hearing about the anime ending soon, I decided to start watching it. Other than the obvious time-killing in the form of lengthy recaps, flashbacks, and extended frames, the pacing feels pretty fast in a good way. I'm actually enjoying this childhood arc a lot. I never got past the tournament arc but I heard the pacing is awful later due to filler.

Did anybody else feel that the episodes about the Zabuza(Village eps in general) were really powerful? I don't know if it's just subtle nostalgia making me feel this way, but I actually felt something when Sasuke 'died'(even though I knew he didn't) and during the deaths of Haku/Zabuza. The soundtrack definitely played a large part in this. Anime/manga doesn't usually make me feel emotional but these episodes hit me hard.

Jacob Sanchez

The original 135 episodes of Naruto, i.e. the non-filler of the original series, is god tier. Great combat full of unique powers and mind games, the universe feels real, feels like any character can die. Also pretty great animation for such a long running series. All of the characters are well-connected.

Then shitpuden ruins all of this.

Before the timeskip is was pretty great.

Almost every character was relevant, had little moments to shine, surprise the audience with some crazy Jutsu.

The fights with the Sound Four are among my personal favorites in the series, they showcased a more diverse set of fighting styles than Naruto and Saukse's standard toolkit of 2-3 go-to techniques.

The Chūnin Exam was probably the highpoint. You had each character at their most interesting point, all while unveiling Orochimaru and the Sand invasion all at the same time.

its pretty fun to read for a while
fast forward a few hundred chapters

he's also the direct reincarnation of one of the strongest ninja to ever live

You know, the legendary bloodline and reincarnation stuff didn't matter, right? It only came up after he already trained his ass off and got stronger than everyone on the planet. It was a last-hour power up not to become more acknowledged (that happened with Pein) or a better person (that happened after unsealing the Kyuubi), but exclusively to match Ten-Tail Jinchuuriki Madara/Kaguya.

Literally the only thing he got genetically was a large chakra pool and a long lifespan. The former is kinda helpful but not a godsend, the latter confers no real benefit.

If there wasn't an anime, half the complaints wouldn't even exist.

People are projecting complaints of the fanbase and of the animated filler arcs onto the manga itself, when they shouldn't be considered related.

like anything that goes on for more than like 30 volumes, the author started running out of good ideas and got bogged down by all of the characters/concepts that he had to constantly add to keep the story going. nothing that goes on for as long as naruto will stay good, although i thought the stuff up until the end of the chunin exams was pretty good

Noah Fisher
Noah Fisher

became less about skill and creativity in battles and more about who has more power. it also became more serious.

like in the chuunin exam, Naruto defeated Kiba by farting in his face to disrupt his super sense of smell. defeated Neiji by burrowing underground. by the time the manga was nearing it's end his tactic just became kage bunshins and the biggest rasenshuriken he can muster or kyuubi power or hermit mode. that's boring. but this is the bane of a long running series.... you run out of ideas.

Sharingan buffs, chosen one -plotline, "I'm sorry.", the war arc, introduce 100+ characters- don't flesh them out, no screentime to old characters, Sasuke, everyone and their mother has something to do with Senju or Uchiha...

Out of the main trio, Sakura is consistently shit, even in supposed illusion situations which was supposed to be her forte. Introduce Hinata as a potential love interest early on, then ignore that plot thread entirely for 500 chapters.

Sasuke's motivations for going full edgelord at the end are pulled out of his ass. Then they say they can't fight bc they're too powerful or both will die, but of course they're both fine at the end. Epilogue "oh btw Sakura won over Sasuke off-screen, happy ever after!" etc.

William Carter

Kishimoto created a world full of ninja villages, with five being the most powerful. He introduced concepts like wanted ninja, warring countries, and legendary ninja. I also shouldn't have to explain what a ninja is, but if you read Naruto, you still might not know. He pissed all of his initial world building and the expectations of the series' original premise down his leg as the series gradually became more and more about Naruto and Sasuke, pushing aside all the secondary characters he introduced in the second arc, nullifying their alleged importance as stated by other characters and limiting the possibilities of exploring the rest of the world and meeting new characters and storylines, not to mention all the potential "ninja mission shit" that this could've spawned.

This Naruto-Sasuke focus unfortunately gets to a point where it actually contradicts the themes of the story. Naruto working hard and changing his fate is rendered moot when it's revealed that, on top of literally everyone giving him a hand-out, he is actually the reincarnation one of the first ninja's two sons. Naruto as a story is very similar to Berserk and Final Fantasy VII, but in those stories the hero ISN'T destined for shit and CHOOSES to become the hero. Naruto was born one, he just didn't realize it. Not to mention other themes that get tossed out the window, like the new surpassing the old, when each villain is someone older and stronger.

Lastly, he has a lowbrow sense of humor, his best looking girls are traps and the series is incredibly insulting to women, even for nips.

I think its pretty solid/good up until after the Pain arc.

I'm just gonna say. Naruto would have been good if it stayed focused on Naruto's ninja career for the bulk of it and slowly filtered in Orochimaru, deal with him in satisfying way, and then finally focus Akatsuki after having them looming on the horizon throughout the story. Rescuing Sasuke should not have been the end game. Also the timeskip was shit but Pain was the highlight of it. It would have been a good ending with some tweaking.

Also Bleach is the same way. Tell me you wouldn't have liked if it primarily stayed about Ichigo helping dead people as a substitute shinigami.

That technique would lose instantly to the Rinnegan's ability to absorb chakra, if Kishi remembered it existed.

Of course if Kishi remembered the Rinnegan's abilities Sasuke would be walking around with a magitech megabuster arm instead of a stump.

As they said in the actual exams, they don't promote people based purely off power.

They weren't, Kakashi was made Hokage after the war. Naruto took the title a decade or so later.

Because Naruto didn't want it at the time.

I'm not pointing it out for power reasons. As far as that goes he's got everything he needs between Amaterasu, Susanno'o, and the Deva Path. The point is that there is no reason for him to have only one arm.

It was either because Naruto was too young or because he was gonna go off training, but Naruto was going to be Hokaga because of the war and Kakashi was keeping the seat warm.

Ive always though Naruto would be universally loved if Naruto himself wasnt even involved or at least fucking died.
Jesus christ he was insufferable.
Here are all the following points where Naruto could have died and the series would have been completely salvaged
he dies fighting haku
he dies fighting Gaara
he dies fighting Sasuke at the end of Part 1
instead of Pain showing up and getting one of his paths rekd by konahamuro because plot, he doesnt fuck up and destroys Konoha immediately.
he then kills Naruto
I mean really he could have died at any point and it would have improved the show. Literally more annoying than Sakura.
All of his fights were just so boring to watch. Even Sakura's fight with Sasori was infinitely more interesting than literally any fight Naruto took part in.

Ryan Diaz
Ryan Diaz

agreed
Pain was the highlight of the show.
Konan should have attacked Naruto and Nagato would pull another one of those instant death dragon jutsus out his ass and kill Naruto
The adventures of Nagato and Konan would make for a much better show

In my head canon thats what happend.

That settles it then. Naruto was the best thing to come out of Japan in a long time. Kishi put out the best art in Shonen Jump history on a weekly basis and a better story than monthly mangaka authors. It was original, unpredictable until the end (as in, it became more predictable once people starting to hover), and inventive with its use of cultural idiosyncrasies. The only thing I didn't like about it was Killer Bee. The story went down any chapters that he was in.

My favorite arc was the Pain arc. The way it resolved Naruto's greatest plotline about love conquering over war, by demonstrating it, and subsequently the fruits of peace when Pain used his (plot-backed) Rikudo Rebirth jutsu to revive the village that he had just assaulted; which Naruto still remembers when Obito uses it and is why he doesn't try to stop Madara with Sasuke (that's what you call A-Grade detail). It all came together perfectly.

I especially like how it comes right after the Shikamaru Revenge and Sasuke-Itachi arcs, contrasting how Naruto is different from them (Kishi lets the story do the talking). I like that Naruto has consistent characterization versus Luffy and Ichigo. I like how their first mission took them to a country where ninjas don't exist because waves offer natural protection. I like how Shikamaru's dad's death happens exactly 400 chapters from the game of Chess game between Shikamaru and Asuma, when Asuma tells him that one day he'll know who the "King" is, which cuts to a tree in the forest of the eventual Karasu/Hidan showdown, foreshadowing that the Chakra Tree is also created in that chapter.

Art - 10/10
World-building - 10/10
Story - 9/10
Lore - 8/10
Pottery - 100000/10

That arc was pretty tough for the 3 of them. Sasuke basically goes insane after realizing all the jerking around in his life.

Naruto finally reaches an epiphany about peace that literally causes a miracle to happen with Pain bringing everyone back and then right after the ninja world just tells him to shut up about forgiveness and let Kumo kill Sasuke.

Sakura gets guilt tripped by Sai (who is clinically social retarded) and thinks everything is her fault for making that promise with Naruto.

Wyatt Powell

Same problem with any type of normiecore. There's nothing wrong with liking bad things, but because naruto was babbys first and had a wider appeal, it dominated the airwaves for well over a decade. The issue with babbys first is that because viewers are not experienced, they're still in a honeymoon phase and think naruto is the greatest series ever created. People who have watched thousands of series almost never say that something like naruto is their favorite, but normies who only watch five or ten shows over the course of their life are jokingly predictable. Any combination of big 3, fairy tail, tokyo ghoul, attack on titan, dragonball, sailor moon, and death note can summarize the majority of western anime "fans".

I thought Naruto was a pretty enjoyable, albeit generic shonen. My only problem is the Uchiha's being the major end game villains.

Didn't care much for Naruto having to fight Sasuke as the final battle just because it was hyped up even though it felt unnecessary at that point. Especially since Sasuke gave up his revolution pretty easy after they were both worn out and because there was no Obito or Orochimaru to transport Sasuke away at the end this time.

David Torres
David Torres

Naruto was the one who got what he wanted in the end and Sasuke gave up on his revolution concluding with a speech on how much they admire and care about each other.

Characterfags are so obnoxious trying to turn it into a competition instead of just accepting the fact that Naruto and Sauce have suppressed homosexual feelings for each other and would rather wank each other off now that all the drama is over.

Samuel Jenkins
Samuel Jenkins

Anyone else think Shikamaru should've been hokage instead of Naruto? Aside from all the ninja shit, isn't the hokage like a ninja president with actual responsibilities? Like I can't picture Naruto caring about village infrastructure or mundane day-to-day management of the village. He's dumb as shit. Even though shikamaru's lazy, he's supposed to be a genius and from what I remember his whole deal was him accepting responsibility and becoming the leader the village needs.

Luke Foster
Luke Foster

Shikamaru wouldn't want to be bothered with all that shit.

Kayden Rogers

Yeah. Seeing as how the Hokage position became more about paperwork and less about being the strongest in the village.
