Description
Twelve years ago, the powerful Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked the ninja village of Konohagakure. The demon was quickly defeated and sealed into the infant Naruto Uzumaki, by the Fourth Hokage who sacrificed his life to protect the village. Now Naruto is the number one knucklehead ninja who's determined to become the next Hokage and gain recognition by everyone who ever doubted him!

I've read this manga in under a week and people that say it gets worse near the ending are right.
The akatsuki arc is still good but problems start with Sasuke's decision
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
to ignore every sacrifice his brother made, by intending to destroy the village and everyone in it.
. That was just not a smart move from the author, but the way he was dragging the story it was expected. They wanted to continue the conflict between Naruto and Sasuke, a pointless effort. That was the turning point for this manga, as things started going down from there.

There are over 200 chapters spanning the final fight, it's ridiculous. But i have to give it to this manga for managing to draw in every character from the world's Genesis and give it screen time. It was just overdone, leading to a lot of boring fights where you didn't care for the outcome. Because people can't die in this manga. The only serious death was
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Jiraiya's
, it had impact simply because everyone expected him to come back to life like everyone else.

Well, i wanted to give this an 8 till I read that terrible ending spanning 200 chapters, now I have to settle for 6 or 7. It's still one of the greatest shounen manga for the intricate story and impressive length.

Overall Very Good

I feel that although it is very easy to look at the not-so-good parts of Naruto, especially near and even at the end of the series, the majority of the series was actually very good! Overall I would give it an 8/10. However, I almost gave it a 6 or 7/10 with the reason being that I felt that especially near the end, it kept dragging and really . . . it should have ended a lot earlier than it did. However, when I look back over the series, I'm reminded of how much I enjoyed it, and really--there were so, so many parts that I loved very, very much that in retrospect, it would be a shame to judge a series such as this based only on 1/10 or so of it that I did not enjoy.

Naruto was all kinds of awesome in Part 1, it was just brilliant (the only minus was Sakura's grating character) but otherwise a 9/10. The villains were so cool, all ninjutsu awesome stuff, strategies!!!, and the theme of HARDWORK, it was just so exciting.

The beginning of Part2 was also really great, I grew to like Sakura, she had become everything I wanted her as a heroine to be, Sasuke was still a d-bag but a smart one and Naruto grew a bit mature, the other rookies were looking really promising too...

Then it went downhill..Everything that was good about Naruto was just taken away/contradicted, the important characters became irrelevant, all the interesting plots destroyed, many new unnecessary characters came out of nowhere, character development went to crap, plot-holes galore, and they all forgot they are ninjas, it was just a train-wreck! Absolute disaster.

Even through that mess and unused potential it still has part of my heart, it was one of the first few shonen mangas that got me interested in the whole Shonen Genre.

No doubt, I am grateful to be a part of the Naruto generation. This manga is easily going to go down as a legend and for good reason. One drawback: judging by the comments, it seems I am not the only one who felt the last 100 or so chapters to be completely out of the authors hands. I get the feeling that, had Kishimoto had his way, there would have been a lot more character deaths and no Edo Tensei (a glaring example would be Itachi who retained the impact of his character in death more so than in Edo Tensei).
Nevertheless, there is a very good reason why Naruto is one of the greats. Despite the ending, I feel the richness of the Naruto world, and the maturation of the themes/stories as the readers themselves mature. It will be missed

Part one was great, and so was the beginning of part two, but the ending was pretty awful. Everything felt rushed, new characters were pulled out of nowhere and made relevant while others took a backseat for some reason. Character development went out the window at the end too, so disappointing. It almost seemed as though the author had too many ideas or tried to cater to too many viewpoints rather than focus on his own, and ultimately lost control of the story. Naruto was the series that got me into reading manga and that I stuck with, and so I'm pretty sad that it ended like this. That being said, the series (mostly part one) will always have a special place in my heart.

It was good at first; hell - it would not garner it's fame today if it was not unique. I've been following the manga and anime since elementary, and was able to get hooked with anime ever since.
Like many fans, i've also thought that there was a sasuke x naruto thing going on (lol), and it was kind of fanservice that they both end up with sakura and hinata, which was predictable. It was not perfect, and had so many flaws in the end, but i would not be here without Naruto, so it's all thanks to him smile

I was in grade 3 when I first watched the anime of it in a local channel, it was dubbed in Filipino. I love the story specially the time he became a ninja, a moment with Iruka. We with my friends always watch it, talk about it at school and most of the time we copy their hand techniques(mostly we copy the "shadow clone jutsu", its simple and easy to remember back then). Well, we really are into it, pretending to be a ninja and fight against each other, I miss it. Well I hate the author because Negi dies and made me to confuse myself that there is some romance between Naruto and Sasuke. HAHAHAHA!!! LOL!!! Sakura x Sasuke and Hinata x Naruto, not bad and I'm trying to face that reality. Well Naruto's sequel "Bolt", maybe? Sounds like a dog. Well I am now in college. It took a long time for a great story to end.

A few years ago I would have given this a 10/10 but then I grew older and the series itself began to grow flat. It just went on for far too long and well I'll miss it. This was my childhood, elementary school to now high school, but I really wished the ending was better. Oh well.

It's called.. Character Development!

Some people hate Naruto, some people love it. The way I see it? I see the people who like One Piece or Bleach more simply because they started with that series first. As such, I started with Naruto first, though I have read the other two as well. Naruto seemed to identify with me more then the others and I think it had more character development. The character's didn't just have a goal of defeating an enemy, saving a comrade, or a treasure they wanted to find. The character Naruto had a goal in his life. The thing that's defining about Naruto as a whole is that you feel that the character is evolving, not just getting stronger but growing as a person. I think this is what defines not just the character Naruto but the Manga Naruto.
