Most people don't. I much prefer the original Japanese version.

People! People! lets not lose track of the whole point of this topic!

The point of this topic was not to debate who would win in a fight, that would imply knowledge of naruto, and also affection. instead why not realize the sarcastic nature of this topic: to bash Naruto back where it belongs: Oblivion!
Anyways the thing i hate about it is that it is way too popular for its amount of quality, and the guy who made it allowed it to be b*stardized by the show. Although I have heard from my brother who is a narutard daywalker, that the filler arcs are much better then the original. Besides as i have broken down earlier, the fight scenes are predictable at best, you can see what is happening from a mile away, and furthermore, nNaruto is a borderline facist, sasuke is a closet emo, and sakura is as useless as ishida.

Oh yeah an for the record i HAVE NOT read the manga, and DO NOT INTEND on reading it, because, unlike you guys i judge things for their individual merit, not the merit of their book counterpart. I don't care what all of you have to say, because i have other things to do with my life, and would not like to waste precious hours downloading and reading a manga of an anime that i think is boring, repetitive, and otherwise overappreciated.

I suppose my major problem with naruto is that it is as a whole: an eyesore, for it seems like just another "cash cow" anime, and the fact that it has an almost cult-like following makes me sick. if anyone attempts to break down my arguement against it, you will find yourselves sadly outmatched by the logic that only hatred can bring me.

Are you an idiot? If you where to judge it for it's original merit, you would read the manga. That is the original print of the story >_>

And it really only takes 15 minutes to read a tankobon volume of it.

dude, for one thing, no it does not take 15 minutes to read, it takes me an hour to read a manga because i acually like to view the art, and make sense of the dialect before i turn the page. And TWO i was, am and will ALWAYS judge the anime based on the merits of the ANIME, and because of the ANIME i will not read the MANGA because the ANIME SUCKS.


i hope i can get the point across that i could care less of the manga was more popular then the bible, i still wouldn't read it because the guy who made it is willing to allow his intellectual property so abused, and b*stardized, and otherwise dumbed down to what it is now (though i doubt the manga is that good anyways, hence why i don't read it). I don't care if he isn't in charge of the production of the anime, it is the fact that he alowed such a bad anime to be produced using his characters his general plot and his fantasy-world or whatever the world of naruto is called.

Now i know what you are all thinking "how can you hate something you have never read?" and the anwser is simple...>BECAUSE I CAN AND BECAUSE I LIVE IN AMERICA! AND FURTHERMORE I DON'T LIKE TO READ MANGAS FROM CRAPPY ANIMES WHY SHOULD I?

I think that has covered every reasonable counterargument.


P.S i do not know what a "tankobon volume" is or what reference it has to manga or anime or whatever.


now all that aside we are still friends right =D

I lost a couple friends because of this *ahemcultahem* cartoon anime manga...whatever it is

Okay. Point Noted.

Just for reference, a tankobon volume is when they take a large collection of chapters of something from a Shonen Jump or something, and compile it into a graphic novel form, which most people like to buy.

Oooook.....

1) Predictable fights? Outcomes maybe, but everything between is usually relatively unexpected.

2) The show has more than three characters...bashing three of them doesn't make the show bad, even if you somehow turned your opinions of them into facts.

3) You haven't read the manga, and yet you bash the creator for letting the makers of the show "ruin" his original work? Am I the only one who smells a contradiction?

I'd like to know what a 'cash-cow' anime looks like, O_o. Maybe if it was created from nothing (unlike Naruto, which of course has a manga before it), I would understand, but there aren't very many of those shows out there right now...and they certainly don't have cult followings.

It's hard to be outmatched by logic when there isn't any present in the argument.

o_o Flames and spam? I don't see any of that here. Not one insult or bad word has been put up....and everything is related to the topic.

It's just a more heated debate now, stongue.gif.

I feel that I am qualified to speak in this matter being that I have seen the naruto anime series times through while no-life power-mining granite for 5 weeks strait (lv 91-99) in runescape. The filler episodes in naruto are better than the actual ones that are relevent to the plot line in the anime. The fight scenes (even in the OVA) are anti-climactic to say the least, and the quality control on the drawing is poor (god knows how many times I have seen the size and the proportions of a kunai change in from scene to scene, depending on who is holding it and their size) naruto also drags out maby 10 minuites of a major fight scene across 8 episodes, with so many irratating flashbacks. the naruto anime is proof that if someone likes somthing, they don't care if the quality is crap. <_<
