Its incredible when this was first published how good it was. All the characters were interesting and likable. You wanted to see them do cool ninja stuff, and the world they lived in was so interesting it really didn't matter what was going on. Fast forward 15 years later and this manga has turned into the worst that shounen jump has to offer. Half the characters are going super saiyan with planet destroying moves while the other half are fighting with wooden dolls. Generic war battles spanning across 30+ volumes and the end of the manga is so absurd I don't see how anyone could take it seriously.

The relationships leave something to be desired.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Most of the pairings at the end made no sense if you consider the rest of the manga. The only one that truly made sense was Shikamaru & Temari. Hell, Chouji ending up with a girl from the cloud village made more sense than some of the bigger pairings. Sai and Ino? What?

While I have my personal ships, I'm looking at this from a story stand point.

Hinata and Naruto - while I guess somewhat more plausible, it never felt more than a one sided crush to me. They barely ever interacted and it felt nothing more than that. Also I'm aware of the movie that shows them get together, but that was after the fact and frankly only find to fill in character development that wasn't in the manga.

Frankly after all he went through with her, Naruto should have ended up with Sakura.

Sakura and Sasuke - This pairing made no god damn sense to me. Sasuke shows he doesn't really her and tries to kill her on multiple occasions while Naruto is there to save her ass. He even symbolically stabs her in the heart so she doesn't interfere with their fight to the death. She has to have some form of Stockholm syndrome for it to make sense because there's no way she would be with him otherwise. Even after they are married, he neglects her and their kid Sarada.

Frankly Sasuke should have died.

All in all, this manga was ruined for me by terrible pairings.

Oh my childhood finally came to an end. Some people may be still be raging due to the pairings like Sakura didn't end up with Naruto or Karin should have went with Sauce. But was that the main point to this series? No. It was about Naruto never giving up on your dreams. Did it include being married to Sakura? No. It included with becoming hokage which was achieved and never forgotten about. That was the main point of this series. We got villains like kaguya, madara, orichimaru, obito etc. Also saving a friend from going to the dark side. Did Naruto achieve this? Yes. He did save sasuke. Did it take awhile? Yes it did. Did sakura dream come true. Yes. Did sasuke dream came true? Yes. A sad yes. Kishimoto already had the ending he wanted and I believe it was done well. And thank god it didn't take not 100+ volume to accomplish that. Unlike another series about pirates tho that one is still a fun but slow series. But the ending ended quite well and I thank him for creating this series cause it change the world.

I won't deny there are goodness in Naruto, but I won't put it up as the best manga ever written.

Naruto started strong because of the smartly depicted ninja fights and well designed characters. It remained good throughout the early phase, Naruto gradually got stronger while learning the source of his power and fighting stronger opponents. It was good, until suddenly things that are not ninja-like starts to appear. Well I can't really describe it even if I want to since I had practically just read it out of habit by that time.

The only thing that saves Naruto for me was the ending time. Mishima has made good decision by stopping it where it ends, even though it has already been dragged on by the time he did. Although I have no say about how it ends, I highly appreciate the series early on, the stories was great until the fights against Akatsuki ends.

I give it an 8, for its early chapters brilliance.

So I first want to state that the anime was the whole reason I started liking anime to begin with, back when the very first episode came out on toonami. I own a lot to this show even though I almost dropped it 3 times due to how slow the story progressed and how long some back stories were. Each time I took a break from it to let story advance more the more I realized just how amazing this story is. I would recommend this to anyone, this was one of and probably will still be one of the greatest manga of its time and im sad to see it go. The ending for once isn't rushed and it very smooth which is very nice to see. I've been with Naruto for about 10 years now, I think probably longer, and I truly love this series

Finally Growing Up

This manga/anime has been apart of my life for a long time. When I was younger, I dreamed to become like the characters in Naruto. I was always moved by how the characters showed their determination and strength and I wanted to become like them. When reading this manga, you become attach to characters despite only seeing them a few times, you become en-wrapped by their personality and their stories. There were times where I was so into the manga that I cried or laughed out loud. I am truly amazed at how much detail and effort went into the creation of this manga. I am sort of sad to see that this manga has come to end. It played a big role in my life from a young age to present. I am truly glad I was able to "meet" Naruto and the others while reading.

I don't really like sakura. I got it, she is a medic, so her job is too heal, but if you actually look at it, she has been useless since the beginning! I really wish the mangaka would developed her a little bit more and make her do some shit instead of just punching the ground with her strength and heal ppl. And all over the Sakura × Naruto fan art is Arghhhh.. they are everywhere within in the scanlation... and Sasuke... ehh.. i dont feel much for his character anymore.. like after all the drama and shit (especially after his brother), i realize he is just a brat, and really annoying yet power brat. The fillers sre annoying as hell. Anyway, i did really enjoy the manga/anime, and although 2/3 of the main casts are annoying as fuck, i still really like this manga.. i did like the character growth of Naruto (but if you think about it, he hasnt actually gain anything personality wise.. just actual power.. which i likeee)..

I've read this manga in under a week and people that say it gets worse near the ending are right.
The akatsuki arc is still good but problems start with Sasuke's decision
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
to ignore every sacrifice his brother made, by intending to destroy the village and everyone in it.
. That was just not a smart move from the author, but the way he was dragging the story it was expected. They wanted to continue the conflict between Naruto and Sasuke, a pointless effort. That was the turning point for this manga, as things started going down from there.

There are over 200 chapters spanning the final fight, it's ridiculous. But i have to give it to this manga for managing to draw in every character from the world's Genesis and give it screen time. It was just overdone, leading to a lot of boring fights where you didn't care for the outcome. Because people can't die in this manga. The only serious death was

, it had impact simply because everyone expected him to come back to life like everyone else.

Well, i wanted to give this an 8 till I read that terrible ending spanning 200 chapters, now I have to settle for 6 or 7. It's still one of the greatest shounen manga for the intricate story and impressive length.

Overall Very Good

I feel that although it is very easy to look at the not-so-good parts of Naruto, especially near and even at the end of the series, the majority of the series was actually very good! Overall I would give it an 8/10. However, I almost gave it a 6 or 7/10 with the reason being that I felt that especially near the end, it kept dragging and really . . . it should have ended a lot earlier than it did. However, when I look back over the series, I'm reminded of how much I enjoyed it, and really--there were so, so many parts that I loved very, very much that in retrospect, it would be a shame to judge a series such as this based only on 1/10 or so of it that I did not enjoy.
