Hard agree. Zabuza/Haku arc is best arc.

No. 96040

I can't say one favorite, or I'll be stuck forever. But my favorites would have to be between Shisui, Minato, and Kabuto

Most hated probably TenTen, she throws weapons at people and is called a weapons specialist. Meanwhile anyone who just pulls out a kunai is a better weapon specialist than her.

No. 96044

i hate tenten's jap voice. it's too cutesy, high pitch, something you wouldn't hear from a weapon's specialist or any ninja. i prefer tenten's dub considering it fits her personality, or lack of, and the dub was the one i have watched first.

>Favourite character?
Orochimaru, Kiba and Shikamaru are very cool. Madara Uchiha, Hashirama Senju, Neji and Deidara are too sexy. I think this show is seriously the reason why I'm into men with long hair.
Besides them I also really like all of Akatsuki, especially Pain. His character design literally made me fall in love with him when I first came across Naruto as a cringy teen. He looked so emo (with all the chakra piercings and stuff) and was basically a dream husbando for me, also an aspiring emo back then, kek. His eyes are so pretty too, I love the way the Rinnegan looks. The Byakugan and Rinnegan are hands down the prettiest eyes ever.

Konan, Nagato and Yahiko also are my favorite trio.

>Least favourite character?

I do not like Hinata at all, never did and never will. She has a very tedious character and is basically like those Mary Sues in otome games who can do nothing but stutter and blush. I also don't like Obito and Sai. Obito really fucked so much shit up because of Rin an hero-ing and Sai always gave me creepy vibes.

I don't know if this thread is also open about Boruto but I hate the entire show and that stupid blonde bitch included.

>OTP

I'm the faggot from >>>/m/95989 and it's basically what I wrote + Madara x Hashirama. Cannot believe I forgot to add that. Also Kakashi x Might Guy now, lol.

Besides the fujo shit I also like ShikaTema and Jiraiya x Tsunade. The only acceptable couples of the entire show. Cannot help but side-eye Sasusaku and Naruhina as I write this.

>NOTP

Sasusaku and Naruhina obviously, what else?

>Favorite scene

When the infamous Madara Uchiha fought against the Shinobi Alliance, the scene of Pain floating in the air before he absolutely fucking destroyed Konoha, when Gaara's father told him that he's sorry for the pain he's caused him which resulted into him dying and Gaara's sand taking a shape of his mother, Naruto being stuck with Yamato in that carriage who was feeling nauseous, Deidara laughing at Gaara and mocking him, the final fight of Naruto and Sasuke and then that gay ass "friendship" confession.

>Least favorite scene

That one part in Pain vs Naruto… I wish they could reanimate it into something better. Forever unsatisfied with it, fml.
Gaara and Naruto's childhoods were too brutal imo, a massive tearjerker. I'm also still salty over Neji's death. They literally did him so dirty and killed him so that Hinata could get together with her beloved Naruto-kun and live happily ever after with him. Fuck Kishimoto and his Neji-phobic self.

Feels good to sperg about this after so many years of forgetting about its existence. Now I can sleep peacefully tonight.

I started watching this show when I was 13, the show was still in the beginning and I had poor taste on anime cause I weeb teenager. I have the biggest love/hate relationship for this anime cause it's so nostalgic and was there for years of my life, but it's SUCH A BAD FUCKING WRITTEN PIECE OF SHIT.

>Favourite character?

Shikamaru, Zabuza, Haku and Pain are the ones I can stand the most. Jiraya had some sad last moments, I'll give him that.
>Least favourite character?
Kishimoto. The guy who ruined every single plot and character. Also Sasuke.
>OTP/NOTP?
No realistics OTPs, I just really dislike what kishi did to almost every character.
NOTP is probably most of the canon ones. naruhina sucks, hinata has the same personality of a door. Naruto barely recognizes her existence.
sasusaku sucks, it destroys sakura's development as a person. I swear she would be better off with lee.

>>96034
Absolutely, also it destroyed all the possibilities with characters like lee and tenten. But I think this trend started a bit before rasengan, chidori was already a super overpowered move.
Also on useless characters, team 8 absolutely shit tier. Hinata never accomplishes anything, Kiba has a pass cause he has a cute dog, but freaking useless anyway, Shino is… who the fuck is he again? Yeah whatever.

I hate what Kishimoto did to Sakura. He'd always foreshadow her abilites - such as great chakra control, talent with dispelling genjutsu, intelligence etc. only to shit on it later. Make her train with Tsunade for 3 years the art of healing whuch was supposed to be very difficult, only all other girls suddenly know how to heal.
Super punches that did nothing when it came to defence and make men always save her.

Same with her character development. That whole part where she cut her hair, did the best she could to defend her team hinted she'll forge her own power and indenpendency only to be forgotten in the next arc or so. Never truly made her part of team work, Kishimoto just made her heal men. Later Naruto got some op healing regen pulled out of his ass too.
Her big powerup in the last arc was basically being a chakra battery for other men to use for charging up their asspull wizard powers.

Her relationship with Sasuke…. I know that the series is all about forgiving war criminals ("Obito is the coolest guy!" "Lets forget about pedophile Orochimaru crimes and make him Konoha's ally!") but jesus fucking christ Kishimoto. You really had to put her into a sad marriage with a deadbeat husband too?

Having to rely on non-canon material or material written by authors that don't hate women to see her potential sucks.

Just wanted to say that as someone who loved Naruto when Shippuden didn't exist yet, the manga turned to shit after the Sakura vs Sasori arc. Ii gave up after the arc about Pain when I expected big changes to happen and new cool plot lines but the characters came back to life or some shit like nothing happened. Fuck Sasuke too, he had potential but Shippuden completely ruined him, and in turn he ruined the whole manga. I never bothered picking it up again, but now I'm morbidly curious about what happens in the second half of Shippuden.

No. 96171

Sorry, I just need to sperg a bit:

I reread early Naruto volumes recently and came into conclusion that this story was doomed from the start. Kishimoto clearly had no idea what to do at first, as evidenced by the fact that even fucking Sasuke (someone around whom the story rolls around the most) was actually suggested by an editor at Shonen Jump. Also, apparently a lot of early Naruto premise was ripped off of HunterxHunter (or so I heard, never read HxH).
I agree about Wave arc being the best, this is pretty much acknowledged by the entire fandom, and if Kishi stuck to similar moods and themes it would be a very decent manga. But…
the cardinal sin of this story is how underdeveloped was the relationship between Team 7. If you look at the timeline of events, there was barely a month between them graduating the Academy and Chuunin exams, and they didn't actually interact that much. When did they have the fucking time to develop those bonds? Yeah, Sakura is retardedly obsessed with Sasuke, but it's clear she doesn't inderstand it at all, and it was nicely showcased, but Naruto's mutual understanding with Sasuke doesn't make much sense either. Sasuke acknowledges him, but they don't talk much, they don't hang out, they don't even fight together in the first part. Then Sasuke gets bitten by Orochimaru and Kakashi starts training him, Naruto gets taken in by Jiraiya and Sakura is left alone because she's a girl so fuck her. Then Sasuke gets pummeled and mindraped by Itachi (yeah, Itachi, that was really lovingly brotherly of you, I totally believe your redemption story was not a painfully obvious retcon) and Naruto leaves to find Tsunade and after that they don't spend any time together at all. I know genuine friendships can be formed in a short time span, but that still requires meaningful interaction and there's none of that here, and no, Kishi's retconned flashbacks to their childhood fights don't really count, so this pathetic obsession of Naruto to bring Sasuke back is just really inconvincing to me. He has better friendship with Shikamaru and Gaara for fuck's sake.

Their later interactions are toxic as fuck, mainly for Naruto, and it's clear this friendship is pretty one sided. I don't understand shipping SasuNaruSasu even more, it's up there on the throne of shit pairings along with SasuSaku.

I'm not even going into the treatment of female characters, especially Sakura and the constant cries of fanboys "Kishi just can't write girls, leave him alone!". It's not rocket science, you fuck, you somehow managed to write Temari normally.

I don't know if I agree, at least when it comes to Naruto/Sasuke. Naruto and Sasuke had a pretty clear rivalry ongoing from the get go. They weren't exactly friends but Naruto did use Sasuke as a means to motivate himself into being better and Sasuke kept seeking more and more power because a deadbeat like Naruto was catching up to him.

The story was objectively good in part 1 by shonen writing standards… A year or so into part 2 is when the writing plummeted off a cliff. It became unbearable for me in the latter half of Part 2. Sort of has parallels with Death Note wherein Part 2 ended up being so freaking disappointing.

Kisame and Orochimaru. Kisame was a noble character who stayed true to his convictions and ideals to the bitter end. Orochimaru because his english VA was top kek and the character itself was hilariously, over-the-top evil and creepy.

My understanding of the situation is that Kishimoto was really fond of Togashi, and I think they even worked together at some point. It's possible that Kishimoto was trying to pay homage to HxH, but if that's what he was trying to do, he got completely carried away. Having a reference to another manga as a shout-out is one thing, but lifting entire plot points is another.

I also just think Kurapika is the more interesting character. Even after his clan dies, he's still a sweet kid. Over the course of the manga, it's his quest for vengeance that eventually corrupts him.

Post time-skip in manga everything went to shit, art included. Early Naruto had a pretty nice style, Naruto looked like a scrawny kid and it fit nicely with the way he was, character design was more elaborate, there was a decent amount of detail and shading. Then Kishi turned to some weird flat, blank style with oval faces everywhere, hair being just an outline, barely any shading and questionable clothing choices.

He's pretty good at drawing architecture, I'll give him that. Konoha was pretty nice, and I really liked the way Ame looked. Shame he didn't develop it at all.

There are rumors about editor basically being the idea guy behind everything that made part one Naruto good. Even Kishimoto wrote that he never planned Sasuke or Sakura, nor the team dynamics etc.

I am inclined to believe that rumor, seeing how Kishimoto's newest manga, Samurai 8, is so fucking boring and autistic shitfest, got cancelled not even a year after it started getting publicized. It would probably get cancelled sooner if Kishimoto didn't have his Naruto fame.

Editor-san needs to start his own shounen manga.

She has a lot of good moments in the final arc, and has even Sasuke acknowledge her strength which I really liked even though I hate them together as a pairing. For Sakura, I genuinely think the only issue with her character is lack of screentime and everything that happened post chapter 699. I find her a realistic teenage girl in the midst of everything happening, and I appreciate the scenes of her and Tsunade actually showing emotion. It's not realistic to be hardened 24/7, I like that some characters show this.

As for the other girls, Tenten and Karin were absolutely robbed. Both have really interesting characteristics, and I can't believe there isn't a scene of Naruto and Karin meeting each other, they're relatives. I don't know what Kishimoto was thinking with this. I think Temari, Ino, and Konan are great characters and they deserved more screentime.

Hinata still sucks and embodies everything wrong with female anime characters in general.

https://naruto.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:164031

Here, this interview basically states that Naruto in it's conception was 100% different than what it turned into. Kishimoto wanted Naruto to go around to different villages and Kakashi had rivals. Team Gai was from a different village. This makes sense when you think about it. How come no one (team 7) have no clue who neji, lee or tenten is? They would know of Neji for being the best in his grade at the academy. Think back to high school where you knew of that star athlete or that really smart kid in a grade or two above you. Same deal. They should know of tenten for her perfect marksmen ship, and they should definitely know about Lee, the kid who can't use Ninjutsu, Lee. Naruto would have been compared to lee "Your just like that weird bowl cut kid, naruto!" Also how we see Gai and Kakashi first interact. Kakashi has no clue who the fuck he is, yet we get canon flashbacks of the two of them knowing each other and in those hidden novels acknowledging deep friendship. Also all of naruto's classmates are so under developed because they weren't meant to exist in the first place.

Oh yeah, he hates Sakura more or less, wanted her to be popular but fans didn't want her they wanted Hinata. Tried to make Sakura popular but failed so he shoe horned in Hinata.

I kind of hate when people think this series was some grand laid out plan from the beginning where everything was woven together in the end. The interview states he was making up shit as he went. Kishimoto left shit so open ended he could throw in whatever explanation he wanted.

oh yeah. If Naruto were a real kid, he'd be white, so would sakura and not shocked because anyone with eyes could Tell Sasuke is Japanese

SJ: If an American Naruto live-action film ever got made, who do you see playing Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke?

KM: Naruto has blue eyes and blond hair, so any child actor in America could play him. Maybe Sasuke would be someone Japanese-American, and Sakura, someone European. I'm not all that familiar with the names of child actors. I only remember Dakota Fanning… [laughs] I love movies and know actors' faces, but not the names.

>>97157
yes. sure he has a wife and kids but we all know plenty of gays have had that lol He can't write a convincing straight romance to save his life. When he tried it was horse shit. seriously, hinata is fucking psychotic to get upset over a scarf. Apparently, the scarf plot came about because Kishimoto wore a scarf into work, someone made fun of him, kishimoto said it was made by his wife and everyone went silent… that was his inspiration for the last naruto movie. He can try and say Naruto and Sasuke have a brotherly bond but it doesn't come across that way. Nartuo is obsessed with the guy, to the point of ignoring all others. Naruto also gets more emotional over men than he does any females. Hashirama and Madara, it's the same thing. Obito's 'love' for rin wasn't love but an obsession, even when she was alive. She would have gladly cucked him to be with Kakashi.

He tried writing a romance between two leaf ninjas the purple hair anbu lady and the dude who died in part 1. You don't get a sense they were in love. more like good friends or step siblings.

Teenage me thought Sai was supposed to be a girl, until I heard that voice and he awakened something in me.

Also, I think it's hilarious that for most people who were willing to stomach shippuden the drop-off point was either the ending of the pain arc or the beginnings of the third ninja war arc, until everybody and their sister got to have a forced emotional moment where they put their dead relative/friend/lover/whatever back to sleep.

I think the original Naruto was peak Naruto and anything after it (shippuden and what not) misses the mark super hard. Naruto sold out big time. But the original has so much magic.

I also think one thing I really loved about the original was the use of traditional japanese stuff. Just today I figured out Jiraya's character design is based on kabuki (video related around 19:08) and hence why he does those poses. For my preteen self, I think this was very cool and impressive to see.

Yeah his character trope really didn’t age well whatsoever

No. 105547

So, who do you think was the weakest member on each team of the rookie 9? Because it was obvious each time had that one shitty member.

I bet Choji was for team 10. Shikimaru might not have gotten good grades because he was a slacker but was already a league above his classmates. Ino was stated to be one of the best girls in the class. Sure Choji beat that one sound ninja but then we get to shippuden where Ino is superior again.

Team 8 I would say Kiba. he seems like the type who would fail written tests, a lot and wouldn't stand a chance against hinata in a physical fight. Shino carried that team for a time. Just looked up their official stats, Kiba was .5 points better than Hinata. Guess I was wrong there

Team 7. Naruto until he starts training with Jiraiya. Then it's Sakura. I know she has some stans and I like her too but compared to naruto and sasuke she falls behind. Not her fault when the creator has a hard on for males.

For fun, Team Guy, obviously when it first formed it was lee, for sure. Probably by the time the chuunin exams take place I would say TenTen is the weakest.

For a serious that always had characters talking about the importance of clans and clan jutsus, these heads of clans had very little children. I'm gonna guess it's impart a Japanese thing where they have very few children and the creator knowing he wouldn't have time to include siblings.

>>105448
He was so awful. I get the creator is a massive DBZ fanboi but this shit was just wack. None of Jiraiya's ppervyness was ever funny, in fact the perverted old man trope was never funny to begin with. Nothing funny watching an old saggy ass creep perv on young women. Also he was a shit god father to Naruto. "I had to go spy on orichimaru because he was my best friend, and no one else can go spy but me!!" do the japanese not understand what being a Godfather is? Also his attitude to Naruto when they first interact isn't of a man who has a soft spot for his god son, I get he didn't know him all to well but the boys own parents held him (jiraiya) in high regard and he was close with them too. "hey, yeah I left your son to be ridiculed and shunned by the village and never helped him train until much later when someone already taught him the basics!"

Oh yeah, and fuck the third hokage. The anime can make all the fillers they want depicting him being nice to naruto but you sure as hell don't get that vibe from the first chapter of the manga.

Thinkin bout how the hyuga slavery plot was dropped

No. 105630

>>105561
tbh they dropped about every plotline except the uchiha shit, highkey disppointing since a lot of characters had promising plotlines

also i feel like i'm the only degenerate out there who actually likes orochimaru

Considering release dates, I'm gonna assume Kishi ripped off another design.

>>105561
This shit still pisses me off. I never bothered with Boruto, but I guess Hyuuga issue was never adressed there either.
