"Won't end" Done Wrong

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 ninja world is very interesting, for example, sasuke and orochimaru look really cool by design, the author has the skill but blew this up and turn it into junk manga.

Being a shounen manga on shounen "popular" magazine, it has many cheap style and symbolism in it, for example, many flashbacks and showing off the old ninja-way which is getting old since the first few volumes, many characters with goddamn flashbacks which we don't really care about, who should have little place in the story other than showing off its ninjitsu, martial arts or style in the first place.
Also, the ninja world is heavily themed around schooling in reality, showing off senseis and its students who have little individuality other becoming successors of their sensei.
In it, some or many concept is entirely fraud, like, "There are people who can do best on everything and people who is loser who is useless" but the reality isn't like that: We have drastically changed the environment and expand our intelligence which is not what most people like, specialized, needed or good at, that "There are people who can do best on everything and people who is loser who is useless" is the same old joke used by schooling in reality, so they can justify their existence and drug the youth.

When I first heard about it I was an avatar fan and avatar had ended and I didn't want to watch it.my 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.

Kishimoto is a Good Mangaka...

I'm quite convinced that Kishimoto is a really skillful mangaka, but somethings are like restraints to him, like the shounen genre itself. It's quite common to see people complaining about this manga, but they can't tell why they don't stop reading it. I'd guess it's because Kishimoto can hold their attentions and make they wonder "what'll happen next?". They just don't realize it.

Naruto is a manga that probably makes WSJ earn a lot of money and that's why it keeps going for a long time. But I'm quite amazed by the fact that even being a big series, it didn't lost its coherence up to now, something that's really common to shounen series.

Naruto is a cliche manga? Of course it's cliche! Look at the magazine it's published! It's meant to be read by people who want to see cliche shounen! Its target public are teenagers, not young adults who have read a lot of other shounens in their lives!

In general, the art is good (for a weekly series, it's awesome), the plot and pace are steady and it's really addicting depending on your taste.

Regardless of the flaw of some major characters and sometimes repetitive fighting skills, I' still religiously follow every new chapter of Naruto. Maybe because I like the clip hanger that Masashi Kishimoto put on every chapter or how he manages to make the character grow in mind and body as the series progresses.
