Which of this openings are the best?
>Naruto vs Whoever
>"Naruto's gonna totally get destroyed. No way he'll win"
>Naruto beats them
Naruto blowing Neji the fuck out felt great cause everyone was sucking his dick so hard
No shame in it. Naruto PTS is good.
I don't think anyone that's sane and that has read/watched Naruto would argue that the Chunin Exams arc was the apex of the series.
To this day it annoys me that Naruto always needs to have some sort of childhood connection with his opponents and friends. Especially when he doesn't give a fuck. He fought Kiba, and Naruto barely knew who he was. But Kishi had to save the day, by indicating that Kiba said something mean to Naruto so he had to be punished.
>introduction of best villain
>right before powerlevels got fucking retarded
>the last time Sasuke wasn't a total faggot
>all the characters getting to shine
When it was all about naruto sticking a giant middle finger to everyone who looked down on him, the series was GOLD. Him fighting someone, everyone counting him out, them getting btfo and it shut them up. Good god That's why when the whole village celebrated his victory over Pain it MEANT something. Naruto worked for that. He worked his ass off when nobody had his back except for Iruka, Jiraiya and Kakashi. (Sakura and and Sasuke don't count cause they were just like everyone else, in fact, they were worse.)
I will forever be Salty that Lee lost. It just doesn't make sense. Nigga was running on concrete and destroying it, you're gonna tell me he isn't going to be able to break hardened sand with a kick?
I agree. I just disliked the forced drama but oh well, comes with the territory I guess. And I think Sakura was the one that didn't really see any potential in him until Shippuden. Sauce respected him at the end of Part I. In Part II, he probably forgot Naruto let him off the leash. But we all know Sauce suddenly developed mental retardation in Shippuden, so who cares. All Snake dick Orochimaru gave him must have given him an extra chromosome too.
>Hidden Lotus blasts a crater in the exam arena
>He used the sand to cushion his fall
No. No no no no no no fucking fuck no. I will never not be mad at this.
Child me called that bullshit out and laughed at Gaara's faggot ass getting Chidori'd in the finals.
Granted, I grew to like him later. But beginning Gaara was a cunt who needed to be brought down a couple pegs.
I think Shippuden Gaara was just another damsel in distress. A fucking Kage being unable to take out Deidara?
But Gaara was God Tier when Kimimaru showed up.
I think so. it's not confirmed. when I first saw him, I thought he was a bug user, but it's iron sand, he also uses a puppet, which he controls with his sand.
yeah but he used his sand armor at the same time.
kakashi trained sasuke because the kid was a ticking timebomb with a sharingan and he was the only one in the village sort've qualified to deal with him.
besides, naruto got someone even stronger and more legendary to be his coach.
he spent all of his energy controlling enough sand to blanket the entire fucking village. i doubt he'd have much chakra left considering naruto was only able to pull off half the shit he could not because of the fox, but because of his own family's freakishly high reserves that he had.
he would've had it under control if itachi didn't fuck it all up by coming back to the village and then mindfucking sasuke when they fought.
and then things might've still been ok had the sound 4 not come to beat sasuke's ass again and mention his brother.
>kakashi trained sasuke
We've been over this countless time /a/. Kakashi merely let that kid copy his justsu while reading porn in the background. Kakashi has little to no investment with his students; he's just doing his job and nothing more.
Do game OPs count too?
