One of the best shounen manga I've read next to samurai deeper kyo. I've been following this since 2002 and masashi kishimoto never failed to incorporate moral lessons in every challenges that the characters face on this manga.

Season 1 is AWESOME, Season 2 sucks!

Naruto was really great in season 1; Everything was really perfect in my eyes, so exciting and Naruto and the other's strong friendship is really inspiring. I really like how we meet new characters, but there's almost story we get to know about them and why they're like that today. Some of the stories really touched me, especially Gaara, Neji, Tsunade and Haku's story.
The season 2 SUCKS (sorry): Naruto begins to lose the great story. The beginning of season 2 is great, but the manga gets really shallow after Gaara's story :/ The whole Akatsuki story is so messed up, and I feel that in every chapter there's just always new, boring explanations about why this and this happened and new techniques that Kishimoto-san randomly just invent up sad
There's so many characters
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
who dies, and I feel 3/4 of the characters who died was so unecessary deaths thanks to a stupid war.
and the Sasuke saga
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
is really poor. His meaning of taking the evil path becomes meaningless since Itachi was not evil and actually loved Sasuke. Sasuke's main goal is now lost and suddenly he wants to take revenge on the whole Konoha!? It's not even a good reason, just because it was an old man's doing for making Itachi like this. I think it's really poor, sorry.

I would still recommend it, but it's not the best shounen manga since the shippuuden kind of made the serie more boring :/

Shounen - Better than most

I wish read this before I read Bleach. I would've saved a lot of my time. People can say what they want but Naruto is simply entertaining. If you wanna complain about plot issues then read Josei manga because shounen manga aren't known for very coherent story lines. Don't get me wrong, I love Naruto's narrative but I guess some people find it hard to accept because of the over the top story arcs. I honestly can't help but think of Harry Potter when I read this simply because of the rich backstory and I think:

This is better than Harry Potter.

Its funny, its emotional, its sad, its interesting and many other things. If someone doesn't like Naruto, its not that there's something wrong with Naruto but rather something is wrong with their perception of what a shounen manga is supposed to be like.

Why I hate Naruto

I started Naruto when I was still a child. I thought it was awesome. You had those children who tried to become stronger, and the wise older people who sometimes acted stupidly but if they got serious there would be no better than them(then). Think of Jiraya or Third Hokage. I watched it till the Sasuke Missing Arc and then the filler started. Stupid missions that had nothing to do with the main story. I dropped the manga till 2 years after, where I began immediately with the Shipphuden arc. I realised that NOTHING from all those 100 filler episodes was needed to understand that Arc. I followed up the anime till the fight with Pain and Naruto. If someone has seen the last episode where Naruto turns into Kyubi you would understand why.
There a friend of mine told me to begin with the manga. He said it was more original than the anime cause it was like how the Author wanted it to be. I began the manga. At the same time I also began Bleach and Fairy Tail. Continuing into the manga I reached the moment when Kabuto reveals he is becoming Orochimaru and then I realised....

"I hate this manga" or "I love this manga"

It's either "I hate this manga" or "I love this manga".
As for me, I'm on the neutral side. Personally, I find that the manga is going on for quite a while. Some people get tired of the plot while others become more excited. And some people, like me, are just reading either they feel that it is a duty, or hoping that the new chapter is going to be a blast, grabbing their attention again. I have to admit that I stopped reading the manga for quite awhile, after I started losing interest. However, I'm still anticipating the ending and might feel lonely if this manga comes to an end. I am really impressed by how the mangaka is able to link up all his plots. It must have taken years to plan. If not, then I do think that the mangaka is really impressive in relating current plot to much much earlier ones.

I love this manga because it's mysteries.

Even though recent arc is not that good, I always want to know what happen next chapter. Some people would complain about the manga but I'm not like that, I would simply drop this manga if i don't like it anymore. But for now I love it and it doesn't matter if this manga continue for another 10 years, as long as i enjoy reading it.

First off there is not only two kinds of people who either
I on the other hand am bits of both.
In all Naruto is probably not really an original concept like someone mentioned and neither is his character/attitude but if you read bakugan i'm sure you'll understand. Its that mangaka's CAN"T stray from the norm because it is too dangerous so they all have to be bumbling idiots who entice people to follow them--not that i dislike that type of character.
This manga is great, it makes you feel for the characters and the morals are beautiful. Even 567 chapters in, and i'm still reading it because of how great it IS and was.
Sure some of the characters you just want to stab (sasuke, sakura--mostly sasuke) and Naruto's powers get upped way fast but then again saying it was too fast is like asking for 100 more chapters -_- please God do not ask for that many more.
In my opinion i think that Kishimoto is indeed dragging Naruto out too long, many of the battles could have been cut out when the war arc came about and maybe some of the characters are unnecessary ... but still Naruto is one of those great mangas that AREN"T perfect. Think of it this way Bleach has its flaws, Fruits Basket has its flaws etc etc
Anyway rant fin.

Yes, its long. Yes, it drags at times. But man its worth it!! Because when its good....its REALLY good!!! This perhaps is the only long manga that I would rate at 9/10 because the messages, the characters and the story are something to learn from, both on a personal and an artistic level. Love it!

I am going to rate this piece a ten, partially because it was my first manga, and partially because I do believe the author is quite brilliantly bringing it to slow and eventual close. With most long manga, the problem doesn't come with starting or drawing on forever, but instead with ending it. And currently it looks like he is going to end it in a strong, well thought out way.

I also am thankful for naruto because this series is what brought the online manga world to full power, with it's massive hook in the start drawing in people from across the world.
