Too late to turn back...

Started off extremely awesome - good jokes, tense moments, rides of joy and sorrowness - had everything to be an all-time best imho.

However, somehow as it drags on, it feels that the kick is gone and the tense elements have been spread thin - as there are way too many characters involved. Also, the theme of how Naruto feels about being lonely/despised etc etc is already shown way too much already...

As for now, I am still reading just so I want to know how things tie up in the end - I would be totally fine to skip everything to where Naruto fights Sasuke and see how this rivalry finally ends...

PS - I think the anime is extremely awful (esp. in shippuuden) because it seems to switch the target audience to a young teenage group, shows WAY too much flashback of the same thing, has WAY too much filler, has WAY too much idling of nothing happening...

Naruto is a brilliant series that is well drawn and written. If you also want to see any manga thats similar to Naruto when it comes to a dramatic and well done story, read '666 Satan' or 'O-Parts Hunter', written by Seishi Kishimoto the brother of Masashi Kishimoto the writer of Naruto.

Although it is a good series, the latest chapters (the last to arcs) have been....dissapointing and the anime has so many fillers that it annoys me to even think about watching it. Good fighting scenes aswell.

i used to love this story. I was a narutard. it was a big chunck of my life...
and do you know why? because up until awhile ago when there was still guessing and theorizing to be done it was a great manga.

after awhile it stoped being a great manga and started just being drawn out and irrelevant. when naruto gets back to its roots it will be a great manga again.

I liked it at first and then it turned into...a log. Everyone always turns into a log and I'm like "WTF?! A fucking piece of wood? How the hell did that happen?!" And every fucking attack is similar and ends in the word gitsu. I never really liked ninjas but this just makes me dislike them even more! All in all its just confusing battles to see who can turn into a log the most times. I read it for a long while and then I'm like "Okay...I guess it doesn't get better the more you read." And so I stopped.

Okay, I don;t really understand why so many people hate this manga.
There's character growth, unique characters, a good plot, etc. It's entertaining, easy to follow, and the art isn't confusing; it's pretty simple though.
Character designs are pretty good.
But why is everyone calling this cliched? Sure, it might be cliched a bit, but not VERY. I MEAN COME ON. IT WAS MADE 2 CENTURIES BEFORE THIS ONE(like, 11 years...) shounen cliches might've started at the time but not enough to call this completely unoriginal.
Take other manga, not just shounen. Josei manga, shoujo, manga, and maybe even seinen manga are nothing like the complex, interesting, and intricate ways of this shounen manga.
I like this manga, I like the anime, but I hate how a lot of people judge this manga too much.
It's a great story. They don't run a manga for 50+ volumes for nothing, so just keep that in mind please.

I like Naruto over all, it's one of the best Ninja manga series, but it does have rivals, like Ninja Scroll, but I don't like some of the characters like Emo Hinata,or Sauske. But other than that, great manga and even better anime, except the Pain fight, they fucked that fight up tremendously, Dbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin:, It pissed off a lot of people as well

Harry Potter With Ninjas Instead of Witches

I do not mean that in a bad way. Harry Potter has a good formula. And apparently someone in Japan recognized this and decided to redo it with ninjas. However, Rowling knew when to quit. This manga has gone on way too long. I thought the time break would help to wrap things up. No such luck.

This manga seems to be really polarizing, you either really enjoy it or you think it's beyond stupid. I personally am one who enjoys it, but I'll admit, there are some chapters that make you think "why am I reading this again?"

Many people that complain that it should have ended awhile ago but for the scope and the amount of just everything that this manga has in it, making it end sooner would have just left too many untied ends. Currently, you can feel the story coming to a close but in a way that also answers the questions we've all been wondering.

Overall, I give Naruto a 9 for a few reasons.

One: action scenes. Too many brilliant manga have been ruined by poorly executed fight scenes that have so many things going on that no one can figure out what just happened, Naruto typically maintains a good balance between uncluttered drawing and dialogue.

Two: Characters. We've all read manga in which every other figure looks exactly like someone who appeared two pages ago, minus maybe a different hair color. In this manga, differentiating between two characters is easy: every person has a distinct look and all the main characters can be recognized with no second guessing. One other thing that I think is rather rare is the fact that parents/siblings/family members actually look related to each other.

Three: it's in depth. I'm not sure if this is just me but I find it cool when I can see a picture of a character and instantly know a huge chunk of info regarding who the person is, who their family is, what they can do, and how they tie into the story. The further and further you read into the story the more you realize just how massive Kishimoto's ninja world is.
