During the last several chapters, the general consensus of the threads were that, overall, it was a decently enjoyable ride. A lot of severe problems with it but no regrets. Honestly I've heard of more people dropping One Piece, Fairy Tail and Bleach than dropping Naruto.

Don't make me laugh. One Piece is still much better in all aspects compared to Naruto and has a huge fanbase to the likes of Naruto. So it isn't a surprise more people are dropping it because it has a bigger fanbase you twit.

The war arc in the end was one of the worst arcs I ever seen in all of manga. Terrible.

>The war arc in the end was one of the worst arcs I ever seen in all of manga
Then you haven't read much manga. The war arc was pretty bad, but it had some redeeming factors. The old kage fights, for example, were decent. Same with Itachi/Sasuke V Kabuto.

After Naruto's second goddamn training arc after the timeskip, I was just waiting for it to end with Nagato and was severely disappointed with that.

It's stupid as all hell and the writing is abysmal with several terrible but mostly flat and uninteresting characters.
I despise its popularity, not just because it is popular but because of how it permeates the whole anime/manga fandom and makes it as a whole look more stupid than it already is.
But in all of its ridiculousness it's a hell of a ride and I can't say that I fully regret it.
Even if I grew out of it quickly, seeing it just go on and on for years I could never curb my curiosity.

Was it a good story? No, it was a fucking train wreck of shitty characters, "ninjas", and bad art.

What I did like? The fact that I could drop it (like I did after the start of Shippuden) and pick it up years later (picked it up again around the Ninja World War arc), and literally nothing was lost on me in terms of story development.

The best part however? The last bit, it was a wild ride where so many got BTFO'd. So much shipper butthurt and wild wacky inane final battle sequences.

Icing on the cake? Pic related. It's like poetry.

This is true. Nardo was bad, but entertainingly so. Bleach is just boring as sin.

Tolerable until part 2. Part 2 showed some primise, but dropped hard after that idiotic Sakura Puppet guy fight. Each new arc after that was a new low, and the three year (real world) long final war arc was crimminally terrible.

Some of you people are so brain dead I wonder how you function in normal every day society. Bleach is boring and Naruto is entertaining? The amount of bitching /a/ did about the war arc and its snail like pace made several anons in mass droves drop the series or at least take a hiatus until the story finished.

Naruto is anything but entertaining. A vast majority of the readers of the manga were only reading because they put so many years of their life into reading it. It is the equivalent of you going to a shitty movie theatre to watch a great movie but that movie is sold out, so since you are there you might as well watch something else.

>>133844930
Way worse in fun way means it achieved cult/meme status.There is nothing entertaining about naruto spamming shadow clones and chasing around his gay edgy boyfriend.
>>
>>133844940
>the final fight
The Kaguya one? Other than the harem jutsu, it sucked ass.

It was just Naruto spamming shadow clones and rasengans while Obito and Sakura looked for Sausage, then Kakashi gets handed the most asspulled power-up in the series and Kaguya gets groped to death right afterwards.

It removed completely the Nardo/Sauce teammwork that was the best part of their fights against Obito and Madara, and Kaguya turned out to be another one-trick pony that just spammed the dimension changing technique.

I really, really enjoyed the Kaguya Arc.

It was the most fun I'd had with the series in years.

Narutu and Bleachfags should stop fighting because One Piece is the best out of all 3.
>>
The manga is a mixed bag, and the same goes for the anime. The latter however, has given some incredible showcases of action animation, with Norio Matsumoto's work on the series being not only his magnum opus but also an example of one of the best action animation ever. I also like how the anime helped nurture the talents of some young action animators. So based on this bright spot in the anime's run, I'd say I'll look back upon this series with some fondness.
>>
>>133845438

Naruto is extremely boring with the terrible plot, god awful disappointing fights and the plot floundering into new lows. As I said before people are bored with the series but when you invested 600+ chapters into reading this trash, you might as well finish it.

Bleach's final arc has been consistent and quality wise much more better than Naruto. I am actually enjoying the fights because Kubo actually shows them and doesn't off screen them like Kishi.

The only people who found Naruto to be bad but entertaining are delusional Narutards who still found that disgustingly putrid arc even worth reading in mass bulk.

Why? She has a good design, but she came out of nowhere, her powers were kinda underwhelming compared to the shit Madara was doing before, the arc was filled with Obito wanking and the fight was terrible.

1. Madara and Obito were two of the worst written villains in the history of fiction, who both overstayed their welcome by hundreds of chapters.

2. Kaguya had a cool design and brought back Byakugan.

3. Traveling through dimensions brought back a sense of wonder.

4. In the end, Team Kakashi had to use teamwork to save the day.

Kaguya was even worse, she has no personality, she is pure evil but not entertaining about it and she was barely a thing in the story when we first see her

Who the fuck cares about the forgotten eye? She didn't even use it.

>had to use teamwork to save the day.
No they didn't, it was all Kakashi using Obito's Susanoo and Naruto using shadow clone trickery to get himself and Sasuke close to grope Kaguya.

Gaara + Lee + Minato + Kakashi all teaming up to give Guy an opening against Madara, and Naruto + Sasuke + Minato + Tobirama using the hirashin to blitz Obito were all better examples of teamwork.

Your logic is quite something, I'll give you that. You can dislike something, but still find that something entertaining because it's so shit. Bleach is shit too, but it's not as bad as Naruto, so it borders on being boring and, like >>133845730 said, a chore to read. It's a fucking snorefest.

>>133846354
Why did the urban definition of Gary Stu get shit on?
>>
>>133846625
Probably because it started being used in a context outside of fanfiction.

Regardless, you're naive if you don't think Kishimoto fantasizes about himself as Madara, beating everyone up and pulling impossible powers out of his ass.

Madara was just an overpowered smug villain, which made sense given that he had been built up to be the final boss for quite a long time.

If anyone other than Itachi is a Gary Stu is Naruto, I lost count of how many pages were wasted with random fodder calling him the most awesome and perfect person that has ever existed throughout the whole war arc.

Not to mention how all his TNJ victims become lobotomized retards incapable of thinking about anything other than how amazing Naruto is.

Okay you have to be the most retarded motherfucker I ever seen on here.

>Bleach is shit too, but it's not as bad as Naruto, so it borders on being boring and, like >>133845730 said, a chore to read.

Which would make Naruto more boring to read you failure of a human being. How do you say something is not as bad as something but then say it is more boring. Shoot yourself in the back of head.

>To think we used to laugh at you... Naruto-kun

Did Kishi really feel like his audience was so retarded that they needed to be told "look he did something awesome again" every time Naruto did something? Or was it to just generate hype? Because it's lazy as fuck and doesn't really do that
>>
>>133846750
TnJ and Christ Figure were both bullshit, but other than that, I never felt that Naruto won a fight with plot armor.

Madara, meanwhile, was able to use Susano despite not having any eyes. It was about that point I completely checked out of him as a final boss.

The only reason there wasn't any homolust with Boruto is because Salada had the good foresight to be born female.
The Homolust between Naruto and Sasuke was as strong as ever.

It took four tries but they finally got it right.

>>133853099
Sasuke getting the edge smacked out of him was the best thing for the series.
How fucked up is it when Sasuke only gets good when the series ends?

The guy we've spent a large chunk of the series with and had to deal with his bullshit and then suddenly come The Last and Boruto's movie, he's suddenly decent.
>>
>>133845834
The whole Kaguya fight is terrible not just because it feels like it comes out of nowhere. It's badly done because in this series called Naruto, Naruto himself seems more like a side character. Seriously, reread the fight. Aside from the Reverse Harem Jutsu, which doesn't even work, Naruto doesn't get any focus. Instead it's about Kakashi and Coolest Guy. Kakashi may be the best character, but in this huge climactic battle for the fate of the whole world, the focus should have been on our hero and his struggle.

The scale of the threat is bad too. It doesn't ever feel like Kaguya could kill them at any time and our heroes are desperately struggling for their lives, like it did with Madara. She's just kind of hanging out, teleporting, and shooting bones the entire time, which might have been a cool power an arc or two ago, but when you have shit like Obito casually launching nukes into the shinobi alliance, bone bullets don't feel like a threat that is so massive only absolutely perfect teamwork will overcome it, even if they do disintegrate on contact.

The last bit of teamwork was really contrived, too. Kakashi got a bullshit powerup (which I liked even though it's ridiculous nonsense) that basically made him immune to Kaguya and also gave him a super effective attack against her and while Naruto and Sasuke were good with their usual bait and switch tactics, Sakura is just brought in because muh team 7 and does something any Naruto clone could have done. Then Kaguya, who has the all-seeing Byakugan, manages to get suckerpunched and not even in the Byakugan's blindspot. It's like she just suddenly forgot that there were enemies around her. How are we supposed to take a villain seriously when she just casually forgets to use her powers?

tl;dr kaguya fucking sucked, madara best girl forever
>>
>>133852747
Dying to the villains' giant pet monster's fodder sweep attack is still a very shitty way to die in a shonen battle manga.

Neji deserved better. Then again, dying was pretty much the only thing he did in shippuden.

I like Kaguya, but I do agree with you. She could have been written much better. It's like Kishimoto, halfway through writing the arc, realized
>oh shit, I made the final villain a woman, and I don't know how to write decent women ABORT ABORT ABORT

That being said, Kaguya caused Nardo and Sauce to quit dicking around, and eventually brought an end to the manga, save the final Naruto/Sasuke fight.
Kaguya wasn't the final villain the manga wanted, but she was the one it deserved.

At the very least, she's cute.

It is, but it's still bullshit. Susano'o was already bullshit for being a giant invincible samurai monster but now it's a giant invincible PHASING samurai monster that has shuriken that ALSO cause things to phase. It was a very clear "Fuck it, I just want Kakashi to do cool shit" statement from Kishimoto.
>>
>>133853240
But the focus on the last fight WAS on Naruto. Naruto vs. Sasuke. It showed the length he had come since this time he was able to convince Sasuke. In the first one he failed, in the second one he succeeded. Literally everything that happened between their first fight and the second was just character development for both of them, no matter how shitty it was implemented. It showed two very similar characters who went down difference paths, and how either one could've ended up like the other with right circumstances. That was the series, those two fights, those two characters
>>
setting went to shit as early as chunin exams, main characters being total trash and getting more and more focus started getting through after the exams, storytelling itself took a massive dump shortly after, anyone not mentally 12 or a masochist dropped it a decade ago or something
>>
>>133853582
I know Naruto vs. Sasuke's focus was on Naruto (though honestly it was more on Sasuke), but Team 7 vs. Kaguya wasn't. Kaguya herself wasn't even the focus, despite being the main threat. Like I said she just kinda hangs out and shoots bones. The most "oh fuck" thing she does is teleport everyone over lava instantly but then nothing super threatening ever really happens again in the fight. For fuck's sake, she even screws up her aim in her own goddamn gravity dimension.

Well, Naruto does get to spam shadow clones nonstop for like 5 chapters while Sauce is stuck in a desert.

As for Kakashi I don't agree that he had any sort of major focus, he had the same problem he has had since Tobi lost the mask, he ends up feeling more like a supporting character in Obito's story. Even the perfect susanoo is just him borrowing coolest guy's eyeballs.

Part of me thinks that Kaguya was actually trying to lose on purpose so that the Shinju could be sealed again, but she had to act like she wanted to win in order to avoid arousing suspicion from both it and Black Zetsu.
Of course, I'm probably just overthinking things, as usual. But Hagoromo did tell Naruto that Kaguya used to be a warm and kind person. We'll never know what happened to change her so radically.
>>
>>133852701
B-but anon, Naruto survive most of his fights because he is the MC and the mangaka said so. The only reason Naruto is even alive is cause' "he has the guts to no die" and Kurama. Plot armor may not be the right definition but it still close enough.

>>133853230

That would've been an actually interesting twist. Kaguya is actually being possessed by the Shinju and fighting to not let it kill everything. Black Zetsu is actually the Shinju's will, independent from Kaguya. Then she sacrifices herself and secretly "dies" with a smile.

I thought the whole point of Kaguya was that she had immense powers and can put a show, but is a plain shit when she has to face an opponent because she is unexperimented as fuck in battle.

Did Naruto ever go back in time after being killed and merge with.. 7 (I guess) demons? become the coolest kid in town, get a teacher thrown out of school, become rich etc. ?

An accurate Hinata would have never initiated a kiss by herself, especially not in public. Also Naruto reaction is ooc as well. The art is a solid okay though.

We don't see some of them other than for that scene, implying that he killed them.

This takes place after The Last. She's gotten much more confident.

>Also Naruto reaction is ooc as well.
Naruto being overwhelmed by how cute his girlfriend is isn't a stretch by any means.

And you call others autistic?

You're obviously no artists. With how easy it is to gather references now, because you are X gender doesn't mean you get to undertand X anatomy better. I don't see where the complain come from though. As long as I don't get to pay for it, this level is fine.

Because Kishi wanted to rehash some of the stuff he did with Naruto's generation, like the main character team and the fodder ones, and for that next gen kids need all to be around the same age.

Only that this time there are only two teams in order to not waste much time on the irrelevant characters he doesn't give a shit about.
>>
>>133857727
Naruto/Hinata, Sasuke/Sakura, and the InoShikaChou couples are the only ones who fucked within the same year. Naruto and Hinata were first and I imagine Sasuke didn't want to lose to Naruto. Ino didn't want to lose to Sakura and the other members of the InoShikaChou are basically contractually obliged to have kids at around the same time, so Chouji and Shikamaru got busy. Then Orochimaru saw that his precious Sasuke-kun was having a baby so he decided then was a good time for a science baby.
>>
>>133832084
Thinking back on it, the parts I really enjoyed were up to the end of the chuunin exam and then the invasion arc culminating in the Gaara/Naruto fight. After that, Sasuke turned from a likable if grumpy 2nd lead into his "muh revenge" mode and dragged the series down with him. The stuff after the timeskip had its moments but was drowned out by stuff that left a bad aftertaste. Bad character usage/development decisions and story turns that left me wondering whether Kishimoto is even giving a fuck anymore made it turned my enthusiasm into ambivalence.

In retrospect, the series would probably have turned out better if Sasuke had stayed with the village and the rivalry had been built upon, eliminating all the darkness shit we had to sit through, or at least put it into an actual character arc, with actual ties to other characters, instead of cameos that just showed how became more of an standoffish ass over the years. Would also have lent itself to a better display of friendship between Sasuke and Naruto, instead of that inane fixation Naruto had in the actual manga.

To be fair, anon, I failed to see yours. Unless you take headcanon for facts? The Last is a shoujo as things can get and none of them act like this.
>>
3/10 not enough filler.
>>
>>133859072
Yeah, Kishi really fucked up making the series all about their bond before actually bothering to properly develop their relationship.

They did have some good moments before Sasuke left but not to warrant the level of obsession Naruto ended up having for him.

Naruto being stunned by Hinata's kindness is canon. This is just a more extreme version for comedic effect.

I enjoyed Gaiden more than anything the main series had shit out in years. I actually quite liked the kids, and more than that, the grown up old cast. Dadruto being so based surprised the shit out of me, never thought I'd like Naruto as a character. During the war arc I just wanted it to end, but now I legitimately would not mind if they continued. Which is going to happen, but without Kishimoto, and it will be shit.
>>
>>133857847
that'll explains how chouji got laid pretty much
>>
>>133859505
Dadruto is legitimately the best Naruto has been as a character. I gotta hand it to Kishi, he didn't just throw Naruto's character growth in the trash.
>>
>>133859874
same here
but i didnt like the he handle the Konohamaru,
he now sounds like he is old man who is trying to return his prime days

Yeah, it was a really nice change of pace to have a character focused story rather than it being about ninja nukes and convoluted asspulls.

No, fuck Madara.

It's not exciting when the story bends over backwards to protect him.

Madara is shit.

Can't believe we are now living where manga industry has no Naruto. End of Naruto was an end of an era, especially for western's anime community.

I'm glad the people who grew up with Naruto were old enough to not do stupid shit like group diving because their favorite manga series ended.
>>
>>133860713
Yeah, they were old enough to kill themselves in sand coffins or over Itachi dying.

I enjoyed it up until like
The part where Orochimaru got introduced.
Then I fell off and I never looked back to see if it got better.
Apparently it didnt

>>133832084
Pretty much, it was a good series, don't understand the hate, maybe because I always ignored anything Naruto related for over a decade, but decide to give it a try starting this year, i'm more interested in the new generation though, the mini series with Sarada was better than almost the whole original manga.

Well, you are more than halfway there... but honestly I can't, the next two hundred chapters are shit except for when Madara and/or the Senju bros show up.

You made it 500 chapters, you can do 200 more.
