I'll actually fight anyone who says it's a bad manga at this point.

Ah, Naruto. This is what got me into anime (and then manga, because it's quicker to read than to watch). And I should point out that I rate by how much I enjoyed a series, rather than by pure quality. I could truly empathize with some of his lonely moments when I first watched the anime, when I was seventeen, as well as with his boundless energy and optimism. The first part of Naruto was fantastic, I think most people agree with that. Opinions differ about part 2, possibly because the secondary characters get a lot less screen time, most of the plot is about Naruto and Sasuke and building up to their fight. While I slightly miss the appearance of some of the old crew, I find myself barely caring. Perhaps I'm just so dazzled by the new array of ninja powers that display themselves, maybe I just like Akatsuki, but it's when Uchiha Madara appears that things get truly fun. Now we have conspiracies and wars and brotherly love(?) sprouting all over. Sure,it may follow the old staple plot of shounen manga that is 'new enemy, train, learn new powers, beat enemy with powers, repeat' but that is not necessarily a bad thing, and it does do it *very* well. Plus there's a rapping black man who can transform his limbs into octopus arms, what's not to like?
It's actually kind of fantastic.

I will say I'm somehow connected to "Naruto" since it was my very first manga and I've been following the story ever since I started reading it. Even though it is the typical shounen ("i gotta get stronger to beat up the bad guys") I don't mind it since it has so many characters and situations that never make it boring and also a nice dose of humor. The only thing that annoys me a little is Sasuke with his obsession for revenge blah blah blah... Other than that it is a great manga and which I recommend especially to beginners biggrin

Started off extremely awesome with good jokes, tense moments and most importantly epic fights! It had everything to be the best. Then I noticed that the SAME THING IS REPEATED EVERY ARC! Naruto finds enemy, gets his ass kicked, trains, ass kicked again, Sasuke either wins or follows suit with Naruto and them he goes fox. Other cliches are there too.
It's still great but I might kill myself the next time he says " I'll never give up!"

It seems like a large portion of people are quite disappointed with the way the story's moving, and I read that shipuuden set the whole this-is-crap thing in motion. I, personally love "Naruto".
Pre-shipuuden really set up the whole story. It made you think there was one bad guy, then there are nine more, and suddenly, everything's crashing around them. Shipuuden is when the dots start to build and connect, until the plot's climax, but the characters never forget their purpose: to protect the people they love.
To be completely honest, "Naruto" is one giant cliche. The characters are typical archetypes, and the plot is pretty much the same as any other shounen manga. It's the way it's executed that makes it so fantastic. Kishimoto knows his characters and his story, and there is no slip up. For every good character, there's a misunderstood/ lonely villain, and only after it's too late does Kishimoto reveal their true nature. The villains are made more into characters than the main "good" characters are!
It is not true at all that "Naruto" diminishes in quality at any point. The feel of the story does change, but it's because they're getting older, and starting to build an understanding of themselves and their villages and friends.
The fighting is just a bonus! smile

Utterly fantastic in the Naruto arc but right when shippuden happened, shit started to hit the fan FAST. Kishimoto is beginning to run out of steam and it is evident in the manga. It is a pity because this is one of THE 3 shounen manga sad I would be sad if this ends in a deus ex machina manner..hopefully not*crosses fingers* It is not my favourite anymore (OP holds the title) but it is the first of the 3 top shounen manga I read so I still hold a special place in my heart regardless of how far it has fallen.

its the side stories that make this manga. naruto is an extremely boring and irritating character. that and ninjas are associated with skill and cunning. this manga just makes them get more and more powerful techniques while getting stupider and stupider.

Naruto was one of the first shonen manga I picked up, the reason being its immense popularity. While I wasn't utterly familiar with this genre (save all the middle school fantasy books phase), but Naruto's popularity was to such an extent that even I, a non-reader, could recognize the protagonist.
I began reading it in tandem with Bleach since both were supposedly masters of their field.
However, I was disappointed. I found that I couldn't read more than a couple of volumes simply because the story didn't interest me at all.
Based on the first 27 chapters, I just didn't click with Naruto as I did with Bleach. The problem I found was that while Naruto was somewhat funny, Bleach was stupendously funny with an intriguing storyline. But I guess it is my mistake in comparing each of these three with the others.
Naruto was an idiot, I'll give you that, and usually I enjoy idiot protagonists. They're just more fun. Naruto was the poster boy for all tortured, shunned orphan kids and in theory I should've loved this guy. To me he was just simply annoying.
Ultimately, its just a matter of choice and preference. While some people do enjoy Naruto and hail it as epic, I felt it was merely slightly above average. I even refrained from rating it not having read a significant bit of it.
Maybe if I were really an amateur, dappling in shonen for the first time, I would've liked it. Naruto was just an amalgamation of most shonen cliches (introductory, at least) and I would really recommend this as a starting point for all the newcomers. For the more experienced ones, however, not so much.

I remember when I was young and I would watch Naruto every Friday at 8:30. lolll XD
I personally think the anime is better (although there are so many damn fillers >.>) because the soundtracks are so amazing. The characters are so well developed and everyone has their own unique background story. The only thing htat pisses me off about this is that its neverending =.=
but other than that, great characters, great artwork, great fight scenes but it gets boring and i just wish that everyone would die already so it would end.

Sure the first few chapters are entertaining for a while, but then it just gets stupid. It's overly long, and it doesn't even deserve the huge amount of fans it has. Everyone is a ninja. There are many better things to read in my opinion. But, while I hate this series, it's not fair to give it a bad rating out of pure spite. As a fair manga rater, this deserves a solid 6/10.
