I said I was gonna go to bed but I lied.....I'm not gonna write much as I know some people have a serious problem with naruto and I can totally understand why. Instead of grading Naruto Im gonna just do The good, The bad, and The Ugly.
"Your doing something different? Thats so stupid and wiierd. Why would you do that?"
It's simpler, faster, easier, and because f**k you, thats why.
Story has a very fun and interesting premise with tons of action, superpowers, ninjas, respect, badass fight and much more. The story is so long and complex it really has some great plot twists
that are a pleasure to watch even if you know it's going to happen 50 episodes before it happens (because most of us read the manga).
The characters are awesome and you become attached to them the more you watch. They all have flaws, they all have personality, and they all have history. It all ties together quite nicely over the years since this anime began.
This is strictly my opinion so feel free to completely disregard this section and go onto the next because I know for a fact that alot of people will not agree with what Im about to say.
It didnt have enough romance, there I said it. I think there could have been a few places where romance could have boosted this anime up to around an 8.4ish score. Once again I dont expect people to agree with this so please disregard this section if you disagree. I would actually appreciate a personal message telling me what you think about this whether its good or bad. Im very interested on what you guys have to say about this topic and upcoming movie. Anyway, moving on.
Im pretty sure you all know what I'm goin to say...and yes you are right....FILLERS. Now dont get me wrong. I grew up with Naruto starting in 5th grade and this show holds a special place in my heart. But I gotta say, there is nothing worst then a very important climax or battle arc getting interrupted by a stupid filler. It can be a complete turn off. Are some of them fun to go back and watch? yes! of course! but the timing of them is horribly off in my opinion and they can get lengthy and as you watch more of them you start getting angry and frustrated. "this is pointless" probably describes the feeling best to some of you.
THE OVERALL: 9 in my personal enjoyment, 8 in terms of quality overall (as a critic)
I have been watching for so many years now so it is really hard for me to critique this fairly. I hope for the most part you guys understand where Im coming from. Overall this anime is a great watch. Probably will be a classic when its all over, but that will be along time from now.
Im extremely jealous of anyone just starting the series now because you get to skip all those fillers. But yeah, please watch it, it only gets better as you watch and the more you watch the more you wont be able to stop.
Most deadly jutsu?
Flashback no Justu hands-down. This jutsu can easily can rip anyones mind to shreds, destroy someones sanity, or worse.....make them turn off the computer/TV in a matter of seconds :0
