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!

Naruto is the manga that got me into manga to begin with. I am not one to judge manga by it's graphics (anime is a different story because, c'mon, it's anime). Every mangaka has his or her manga language and it takes a while to pick up on any of them. I especially like Naruto for it's great simple story. It is about loneliness and those who get out of it, while there are those who get stuck in it. Sure Naruto is a bit mediocre now, but that is because it is the story of a twelve year old boy striving to be something great, while protected in his own village. Once he grows, that is when all hell breaks loose. Yet, it is the relationships between people and how the ninjas of a ninja world handle those relationships that makes Naruto such a great story. I give it a 10++ for it's story, uniqueness, characters, and world development.

I really like the way thing started in Naruto, ninja training is harsh, pleople get hurt and you have the ying yang characters of Sasuke and Naruto love triangle included. And then [edit by mod, no spoilers please] gets stall on the anime with nonsense arcs (fujin, raijin and the haku zabuza clones how bad can that be) but still both anime and manga are addictive in a DB kind well and in the manga with a very slow pace [edit by mod, no spoilers please]. The series is good until [edit by mod, no spoilers please] and now we are in the quets for a plot, hope they find it before they follow the Kenshin path.

Naruto is not the worth manga all around the worl, but it's not the best either. So, I'll say 3/10, because I'm a generous woman :D
No, seriously, there are things which are not realistic in Naruto.
The principal character likes everyone in his village whereas them, they always hated him, and moreover, one time he is a ninja, we don't hear anymore the people of the village, they suddenly disappeared to the mind of Naruto.
But, this is just my opinion after all.
(Sorry if you have noticed some errors but this is not my native language so ;) be tolerant)

back in vol 1-7 there was some story to this thing if i remember correctly
and interesting characters like Hinata...this is like Dragonball but without the humour that make Toriyamas work so good.
Kishimotos Naruto is a story that takes it self to serious for its own good...

Wow, naruto is terrible.

I'll wager money that 99% of the people rating this series with a 10 are no older than 16. So if you're older than that, or have decent literacy skills beyond the 10th grade, don't bother wasting your time.

Seriously, long and drawn out. Should have ended years ago.

Unfortunately Naruto (the manga) has very little redeeming value. The drawings are bad, the story is boring, the action sequences are bland. The term ninja (or shinobi, or whatever Naruto and his friends style themselves) has no value here, it gets diluted by the whacky fantasy world.

It's like a mass-market paperback, it has high commercial value but there's nothing there to catch interest. Still, there are worse manga out there.
