Twelve years ago, the powerful Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked the ninja village of Konohagakure.

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!

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.

when it come to naruto, it fills so much parts of my life, i mean i have watched it since small (its like harry potter "lol" )
and it wasn't my starting point in manga, i have already started gakuen alice, and flame of rika!
naruto is the influence of my brother! ><
naruto our main character, speaks with his heart, all he does is believe,
this is a Shounen, so there are so many fighting. and the drawing is terribly filled with blood~! but i gotta say its so cool!
like sometimes i go crazy about naruto, (i'm gonna go horny) but it touches my heart alot, i wasted so much money on buying fan things, to me its worth it, CAUSE IT NARUTO! smile

I really like Naruto! I think its amazing for sure! I really like the plot and all the characters, except for Sasuke (if thats how u spell it) because he also puts Naruto down!!!!!!! Naruto is the best character and the most powerful one in this manga! XD

When I first took a look at this I thought, "Ninjas, sounds cool". And I didnt mind the extra powers because I thought It'll just add an extra spice... BUT as the series went on, it became less ninja and more "look at me, Imma magician who can jump really really far! SUCK IT HP!!!" and thus it got from a promising manga, to an overrated load of BS.

To all the fanboys/fangirls out there. I dont mind you reading or watching the series, but I dont like it and I'm allowed to have a different opinion than you.

good series

its a good series with a lot fans so nobody criticizes it,and the few who do ,get atacked by fanboys.
well i admit its a pretty interesting manga,tere was focus on the side characters apart from naruto which was also entertaining.
but i'll have to say that they have made this series into a long and boring one.
one more point,even though i can understand the friendship of naruto & sasuke but why is sakura all lovey-dovey over sasuke,has he ever done anything for her , or even talked in right way.
i think her love is total BS.
seriously overrated series......

Spoiler (highlight to view)
really, i love love love it years ago.
i was looking forward to the new chapter every week, until 3 years ago when itachi dead..... i stop read it. (a week of tears flood and mocking sasuke)
then i gave it a try again, until pain dead and the story focusing on sasuke. dropped it for 2nd time.
then i picked it up again and if i gave a rate to this manga 3 years ago, i would give it 10/10
but now, i give it 8/10

the only failure of this manga is that sasuke's existance!

I'm pretty new to Naruto, read it over the course of a week this past summer.
It started off well, with a plot that was sufficiently tightly-woven, but it became way too big for itself with the only thread of continuity being the one tied to the anvil beating the readers about the head with warm fuzzies.
What I've found is that by reading and completely ignoring the main plot and whatever else might be going on you can find aspects of it that are interesting enough to kill half an hour thinking about without it feeling like a waste of time... though that's nearly a given in a series as huge as this.

Clichéd and overrated   
Rating: N/A

Clichéd, though I admit sometimes it's a nice read occasionally. I didn't read past around chapter 13 though, and I've heard about how repetitive it is, so I probably won't try again. It would have been better if it had ended earlier, probably, instead of just dragging on and on.

"These three titles are beyond the normal classification of shounen manga in terms of scope, story, and/or character development"
Seriously? The three manga you listed are called "the big 3". They are overrated, and use a lot of clichés to "develop" a clichéd storyline. They also drag on forever, past 100 chapters, past 200 chapters... Seriously, enough is enough. At some point, you have to stop dragging an overused, clichéd plot on.

brain washing?

I began watching Naruto when I moved to Canada, it was literally the coolest thing since Dragon ball z. I never started watching it so I could fit into any gay groups, why don't you people understand that just because you don't like something, does not mean the whole world actually hates it but wants to be popular.

It is a great series, no doubt, but kind of depressing now, I want to see some story progression though, but I do like the fact that the chapters do normally progress the story compared to bleach...

when will it ends?

brainwashing? maybe it sounds overboard, but it strangely sounds down-to-earth enough for me. especially if it's someone who get this manga as his/her first time into manga world. It's just a common dragging shounen plot. the story has became uncontrollable and I think it's hard enough to just keep this series running.

At least I think it's better to have a plot that will makes you a little sad when it ends sooner than you expected than a seems everlasting plot.
