Does anyone in /a/ still like the original Naruto or has Shippuden made almost evryome hate it.
Most people agree it was good or at least decent enough until the end of the arc with the mist dude who had the bigass sword. The reason why most people here hate it is either they hate what its become, bandwagon hate it, or want the fanbase out of /a/.
Naruto was my gateway anime (inb4 copypasta) so I like it. Compared to other anime however? No it really wasn't very good. If you were like me and only used to American TV (not that there aren't a few good shows out there) then it'll feel amazing. But at this point I'd never recommend it to anyone ever again.
>Pic unrelated, it just looks cool
I'm quite sure if anything, Shippuden made people appreciate early Naruto much more because it felt like Kishi wasn't totally phoning it in back then
Does anyone know any working links to see the new movie online?
Naruto had something decent going for it (within the scope of its target audience) some time ago, but towards the start of the 4th war arc, character development for the majority characters essentially stopped.
As someone that really loves Nardo i openly admit that it's a shit animu, i don't know why but somehow it got me really invested in the characters.
It's a lot of fun to watch with siblings and friends that have a sense of humor about it.
tenten/10 shit animu but you could love it too if you just dont take it too seriously
Feel like the only people who still enjoyed it, are the people who used it as a gateway, like me. I don't really hate it or love it, but i can still sit down and rewatch it sometimes. And I read it to the end too.
its the same thing as bleach. Enjoyable for how much the authors are hacks.
The series peaked at the chunin exams (seriously that 1st test was one of the best concepts possible for the series) and started to go to hell after the sauce left the village. There were a couple of good moments here and there, but it never felt quite right again.
Remember when Naruto became a slice of life manga about a group of domestic ninja families?
Should've ended with Pain. It wasn't the pinnacle of the series or anything, but it was probably the last time anything remotely compelling happened, and would've been the least offensive spot to just end it.
Seriously it was a fucking mess towards the end. Naruto already had a slightly freewheeling power system but the setting became less and less tangible and unstable as the thing progressed.
Yeah, i agree with you completely.
I hate Naruto threads because everytime it's just people wanting to discuss the anime.
This shit doesn't belong here, unlike quality threads we have 24/7 like "bodies made for sex", "breeding material", "best grill thread" and other waifufag of the season circlejerks and thinly veiled ecchi/hentai dumps.
I'm with you on this one anon.
I remember reading Jump and liking Naruto in the Zabuza arc. It had that trap that turned me on before I realized I was into that. The instant Sasuke decided to be a faggot with Orochimaru I dropped it. To my horror it went on for like another 15 years for some goddamn reason.
Nothing, it was just straight looked past after that arc. Kishi realised it would take too long for higher level fighters to do anything. That or Zabuza was just a retarded cunt who used an unneccessary amount of hand signs.
That would've been kind of a shitty ending.
>inb4 better than what we got
We wouldn't have had kyuubi conflict resolved. We wouldn't have had a backstory to naruto including the details of his birth and who his parents were. We wouldn't have had any exposition of the akatsuki. And most of all we wouldn't have had any best character
Pretty much all the side characters are good/interesting in their own way
It is the only reason I ever considered Shippuden. I never got further than 20 episodes because of the amount of time it would take but honestly would anyone disagree that the side characters are awesome?
It's just too bad 2/3 main characters are complete trash and Naruto is far from perfect.
Only above average story arcs
>rasenshuriken/hidan & kakazu
>Pain vs. Konoha & Naruto (minus nagato)
>Jiraiya vs. Pain
>any parts with the samurai
>War up to Obito getting talk jutsu'd
You forgot Hidan moments. He was a good character.
Nope that'll be Naruto Shippuden GT
I drew this for you, /a/
>tfw we will never get anymore back story for the Ootsutsukis because Kishimoto
>He doesn't know what natto is
Get the fuck out of /a/
it's fermented soybeans
It had great moments at the start. When they go train with Kakashi and he makes a test to see if they are able to defy rules and prioritize those around them. That was pretty nice, and wasn't a copy of HxH.
GET'CHA DABLES 'ERE
WE GOT YA REPEATIN' DIGITS FO' JUS' 66 CENTS
if you cut out the more sub-par fillers (Pretty much all the ones relating to finding sasuke post-defection) the original Run of Naruto is pretty decent
also, who's Hype for Storm 4?
>who's Hype for Storm 4?
I hope they cut down on the clone characters
4+ versions of the same character is way too much, especially when it just seems to be for fluffing character numbers.
the Gameplay trailer looks good though
Who'd have thought in the same year Naruto would've chosen that panicking girl in the background.
Good animation. It has Naruto using an incomplete Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, which I find quite neat.
Otherwise, as shitty as you'd think a Shippuuden filler arc would be.
Watch it for Kabuto's new look. And Shikamaru vs. Hidan part 2 I guess.
>bumping naruto threads with checks
heres your reply
>first chapter opens up
>sasuke is raping naruto doggystyle
>sasuke has sex with sakura just to make naruto butthurt
>sasuke kills sakura
>10~12 volumes of naruto being a cold blooded motherfucker who does anything to get revenge
>sasuke kills naruto
>Make Sasuke leave for non-retarded reasons, like Orochimaru revealing his sage status, and Itachi saying sauce needing more love, teamwork, or something else instead of "hate". Have the Sound 4 convince him they are a better team.
>Make Sasuke be willing to return to Konoha and not destroy it, once he beats Itachi. Make coolest guy do all the bullshit at the kage meeting and everyone bitch slapping him. Remove the parts where he acts like a dick.
>Make Naruto learn a new jutsu or move the rasenshuriken training back to the 2 year training period.
>Supporting cast has a bigger role.
>Naruto recognizes Hinata and keep their relationship on "crush" level or something - meaning it's mutual between the two
>Kabuto is freed from the illusion earlier and does the ressurection jutsu on the hokages
>coolest guy is not talk jutsu'd as much, he's just beaten normally for the most part and dies in battle - still forgives Kakashi
>Kaguya relegated to world building and no actual appearance, Black Zetsu belonged to Madara, and they are the final boss
>Final battle between Naruto and Sasuke is more of a sparring match than fight to the death with Hokage title on the line and Sasuke wanting to keep the countires unified through a single enemy (so largely the same goal, without the edge), Sasuke doesn't do anything dickish to initiate the fight and frees everyone immediately
>last few chapters before the epilogue wrap up the post-war effort and other stuff, kabuto is apprehended
There. No big chunks removed, just twisted.
