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.

This is an amazing manga, and once you get in, you can't get out. What got me into it was the anime, the first three seasons of which were really awesome. When I got into the manga, which was when Shippuden was a couple dozen episodes in, I realized that Naruto hadn't changed AT ALL. He uses the same jutsus over and over again, with various different versions of the same jutsu being used. His attitude somehow always seems to get him in trouble, but it always saves him from danger and people secretly admire him for some unseeable reason. Sasuke is also very annoying. He wasn't even supposed to exist in the manga, but now he takes it over. I get that this is going in a direction that the mangaka has planned out, but I have a feeling that after more than a decade, he's done with this as well. Still, I recommend this for everyone. For the most part, all the other characters aren't so bad.

Naruto is still the best manga I've ever read. Maybe some of you think I'm exaggerating.
Still, It's the truth that Naruto IS the best manga (for me). Naruto has taught me that revenge isn't solution for our hate towards someone. It also taught me to treasure my friends because It's lonely without friends and so on.

Definitely recommended to read smile

Naruto is still the best of the Big 3 Aka One piece Bleach and of course Naruto. The only reason its rating was going down is because 1 troll made a comment about not liking Sasuke and it all went from hell there. Then suddenly every1 is changing there ratings and other trolls started making accounts and rating low. Any1 can spot a troll easy on Naruto forums or even on this site do to ther ignorance of the story such as O i read the first 30 ch and gave up but then they go and judge the whole 546 chapters based on the first 30? wtf lol. yah lets not forget the ignorance of trolls such as "Naruto finds enemy, gets his ass kicked, trains, ass kicked again, Sasuke either wins or follows suit with Naruto and them he goes fox" im looking at this like wtf are u reading lawl. Read naruto and follow Sasukes story closely hes a very very interesting char. there is nothing cliche bout this manga and the Believe it! stops 50 ch into it. We see both of them grow up and all the beginning questions and plots come together. People hate Sasuke becuz he can do what they cant simply put. He doesnt let people hold him down MUAHAHAHAHAH >.>

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.
