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!

Why I hate Naruto   
Rating: N/A

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....
568 MANGA CHAPTER AND STILL THE BAD GUY IS AGAIN OROCHIMARU!!!!

"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.

Ok,
First off there is not only two kinds of people who either
a) LOVE NARUTO TO DEATH
or
b) HATE NARUTO TO BITS
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.

What i dont like about the series is the super jumps and the way the fights turn out and the logic in them. First off i hate that naruto always pops kyuubi mode in evry fight, i know it looks "cool" but it gets old and its anoying that he beats people way beyond his skill level because of it. now at the last 100-200 chapters narutos gone from average to beyond kage lvl in just a couple of months (naruto months) first learning the Rasenshuriken that is supposed S lvl or beyond, then learning sage mode right after that, defeating Pain who has the Rinnegan = no fucking sense at all that fight was utter bullshit, dont take me wrong it looked awesome but the logic was somewhat retarded. the second naruto jumped down on the Shinra Tensie site pain cudve just used his Asura path to rocket on the toads, use the summoning pain to make the bird drop bombs on them, naruto wud have to jump away from the bombs and after the toads were occupied long enough and naruto getting all his jutsu attempts cockblocked by Preta path, deva path cudve blasted the toads away (like he did) the summoning pain cudve dealth with the geezer frogs and pain wudve just done like he did in the anime, pull naruto in, suck his chakra out. slam him to the ground with those chakra rods and knocked him out with his shinra tensie, but no ofc Pain who's defeated the entire rain country including Hanzou, killed jiraiya and 1 shotted the rokubi jinchuruki gets outsmarted by a (as earlier known) dumbass 15-16 year old and then gets once again saved by a rampaging fox. Then just a while after that naruto gets to learn how to control the kyuubi, giving him a power far beyond a Kage (his clones are enough to beat some of the strongest shinobi of all time) and who knows in the next 10 chapters maybe he will get the rinnegan, become the juubi host and be the next rikodou sennin. after that maybe he will turn out to learn a jutsu that kills any1 that he looks at.

I do NOT advise anyone to read this wasteful generic manga

This is your typical generic manga with generic characters and an annoying protagonist who evolves from being a whiny crybaby loudmouth cross dresser to an annoying eyesore(thats the only character development you'll get). The main problem with this manga is its inconsistent plot, first Naruto was a misunderstood boy who was hated for no reason other than being the vessel to a demon that destroyed the village and killed hunderds of villagers(totally unjustified hate), he wanted to be a hokage for no other reason than acceptance of the villagers, the manga was all in our face about his dreams of being a hokage and acceptance from fellow villagers this suddenly shifts to a new plot where his main goal in life becomes to saving a traitor friend(sasuke) who almost killed him because Naruto wanted his well being, all in all the plot keeps shifting like a its priorities to new ones.

Overall, dont read this, dont waste your time, this manga defines the word generic and lousy, and Kishimoto should just end it to save some face at least. I recommend you to read Full Metal Alchemist, Shingeki no Kyojin, One Piece.

Although the first part of the series was somewhat good, the timeskip was horrible, plot armor was in favor of the mains too much, and it was obvious taht the author was slowly picking off the bad guys. Although the recent war made some comebacks (such as the Zetsu Controversy and Ginkaku/Ginkaku), this series is just no good.

Obviously, there are two main thoughts on this "I F***ING HATE IT!!!" and "I F***ING LOVE IT!!!" and well... I F***ING LOVE IT!!!

Its the first manga I saw to the end! I think it may be the best I will EVER read, and re-read, and re-re-read, and r-

Well, you get the idea.
