I loved Naruto ever since I was a kid.... I had been following it since 2nd grade... and then the latest arc happened.

For 100+ chapters, the author dwelled on the same material.. Sure, I was glad to see sasuke and itachi again... but the madara wanting to rule the world because of the past just got too tiring...Seriously, that's pretty cliche. But that's not the problem. The problem is that, to drag the ending manga on and on, the author spent 2 years on the same arc!

What the heck is that?

It started off really interesting. The world is immersive and interesting. The characters were also alive and have back stories. As soon as the 4th ninja war arc started, the weakness of Kishimoto Masashi started showing. The story began to drag on and on. There were sooo many asspulls and random character deaths that I have become numb to it. (spoiler* I mean C'MON, a bunch of dead people come back.) Therefore while it started off well, I think the manga has dragged on for too long. It might have been great if it ended at the Pain arc.

I'm all right with Naruto not ending; if that's the case though, don't make it endlessly seem like it will. Explore other ninja villages, create new scenarios in which Naruto could develop, or anything really for that matter. Instead we have a 100+ chapter boss fight that felt old in the first 15.

I always thought that to create some awesome everlasting stories you must have lot of interesting character, history of the realm, some catchy identification of the realm itself and much more. this series simply have that element.

Pretty Great Manga

I still consider Naruto to be one of the top mangas out there. It has a very interesting premise for story: the concept of a ninja world is pretty unique, mixed in the tailed beasts. Everyone's powers are all unique with the different clans and their respective bloodline powers. You can definitely tell the author gave a lot of thought to building the ninja world.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
However, the pacing of the story is super slow. When is Naruto ever going to become hokage ??? For chapters on end Naruto only had one ultimate move: his rasengan, before moving onto becoming a sage, then his ultimate move is still...rasengan but in sage mode. Not to mention, I'm super sick and tired of Sasuke. He's probably the most emo manga character out there and Naruto's brotherly love with him is pretty pathetic. I think the author made him turn evil just for the sake of having a rival for Naruto, but his reasons for turning against the Leaf just doesn't make any sense at all. Same with Madara's reason for turning evil. Some stuff in this manga just don't make any sense. Anyway, I dropped Naruto in the middle of the ninja war b/c it got draggy and boring, but I might pick it up again as the latest chapters are getting more and more intense.

All in all, a very solid manga and I highly recommend it.

I've not read the manga, but I started watching the anime. I'm up to episode seventy or thereabouts. Anyway, I think the story would be better if all three characters - Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto - were main characters. That way the mangaka wouldn't have to make Naruto eventually be the best, the characters could stay in their roles.

No matter the flaws, this manga is overall very amazing. You can't find a series like this often, with a world with such depth and characters that you really grow to love. Recommended for all. smile

The general criticism isn't too wrong.
Apart from the great art,design and worldwide, there are too many regular flashbacks and bad shounen elements in this manga.
Imo, it is untrue before the ninja war arc, i love this manga for at least 450+ chapters.
The war arc shows its flaw quite efficiently, it keeps getting dead people back, who have little background, in fact, we simply care less about these characters than many others.
It also makes the enemies real enemies, say, the dead people themselves have little point to live anyway, it also makes the war a very legitimate war.
Imo, it is kind of boring. Nonetheless, it is a great chance to briefly give more cast to other characters, which is one thing i hoped to see.
Unfortunately, It doesn't seem to maintain its quality, the visual quality is great as always but the fight is horrible. It wishes to show more diversity on jutsu but lost track on the fundamental nature of ninjas.

In the old days, the first serious fight is Kakashi vs Zabuza, Kakashi is very ninja,a tactician.
Zabuza is the first who really makes use of the unrealistic jutsu element in a fight. However, it is a great feature in this manga, the use of it still involves lots of tactics,decision making and such. It adds complexity and diversity. It also makes the world looks more uncertain.
The style is there for at least, roughly, 450 chapters. The fights involves Sasuke is particularly great. This good element seems to be lost when the war expands to the "kage level", it talks more about certain jutsus than actual fight, some particular jutsu kicks everyone ass.
Madara and most dead kages have this properties. In the war arc, it is mostly about great jutsu, then some talk, then counter the great justu with some other great jutsu. It doesn't feel too solid as a fight. It also talks more about philosophy but doesn't apply such philosophy in a fight too well.

The war arc is not entirely bad, the plot involves Sasuke is great. The Naruto side of plot is particularly unfunny and regular. I think Kishi is a genius, if they aren't so pushed to release that frequently i think they can make much better plot and character design on the Naruto side.

When I first heard about it I was an avatar fan and avatar had ended and I didn't want to watch friends said it was good so I decided to watch it but I started from shippuuden season 6 .I didn't understand anything at first but I was soon absorbed into the characters ,plot and everything especially sasuke.I tried reading the manga but it isn't m thing so I only watch the anime which I love but I'm generally a shounen fan.this anime was my first and it's the anime that drew me into the world of anime and manga when I got my first manga book.naruto shippuden manga.It's like the father of all mangas and to me it's the most popular followed b bleach.

It has some amazingly interesting characters, like Itachi, but also lots of ridiculous plot and dialogue. It's shounen after all. But for too extended and naive battles I enjoyed it.
