I had to interrupt my post on the characteristics an anime should possess in order to be classified as a good anime, to write an article on Naruto, yep..Naruto. Why in the world would I encourage the Narutards out there you might ask? Simple, last week I came face to face with a die hard Naruto fan who told me that Naruto was deeper than Death note. Now, I’m not going to sit here and praise the sophisticated astute plot Death note, but I will point out that Naruto more than any other anime, except bleach, is the most overrated anime of all time!! So i dedicate this post to all you Naruto fans out there, especially the one I encountered the other day- you know who you are. Before we start let’s make Naruto with quotations marks like this “” stand for the show itself and let Naruto by itself represent the main character Naruto.

Why do you hate “Naruto”?

I don’t hate “Naruto”, in fact I still watch and read it until this very day. I’ll be the first to admit that “Naruto” is very entertaining. But that in of itself does not make an anime good. To provide an analogy, let’s say “Naruto” is like Mcdonalds, sure it taste good but it has little nutritional value i.e substance. Of course, I know i’m treading on forbidden territory right now, but who cares, the truth must be told. “Naruto” is like a combination of all pop animes conveniently rolled into a giant mesh of ninja and sorcery. It makes for good visuals, but it also makes for horrible character develop, plotting, and innovation. It’s superficial and made the masses.

Why “Naruto” isn’t a good anime?

Naruto is a character that continuously pops up in animes and it is damned annoying. The clownish, super strong, inlove, wants attention, but will save the day character has been done to death…enough already!!! Isn’t Luffy from One Piece enough!? Naruto as a character is not deep..he wants to become hokage because he wants attention..ooooooooooooo…sophisticated. He wants to save Suseke because he promised his stalking victim and believes that Suseke is his friend forever…wow he’s deep!! When the writers of “Naruto l”ack ideas, they either kill someone, injure someone, do a memory montage of someone, or introduces a new character. Yuck!!! This is what sitcoms do all the time!! Now, I know that Naruto isn’t the only anime that does this, but can you honestly say that their story line and plot isn’t tirelessly redundant? Naruto is weak, than he becomes strong, just to find out he is still weak, so he becomes stronger, but he still isn’t strong enough, therefore, he must become even stronger!!! Ugh!! “Naruto” would be great if the main protagonist died! Now that would be interesting… But that’s just a pipe dream. Oh well, objectively speaking “Naruto” is the kind of anime you swear you saw some where before, but just can’t place your finger on it. Okay, let me stop ranting and conclude this puppy.

In Conclusion

This post is made for Naruto fans, and others, who need to get a grip. If you like “Naruto”, that’s fine. If you think its pretty good, hey that’s fine too. Just stop going around swearing its the best thing to ever come from Japan. Stop making things up, like the character development which is lacking,( i.e “I must kill my brother to avenge my clan!” Ugh!! ) or good the plot is, which in reality is a tired boring plot that makes no sense anymore and just seems to be dragged out for money making purposes..like one piece. There is life after “Naruto”, there are animes better than Naruto…. Now, go watch Gintama and save yourself! Next week, we will discuss what makes an Anime A-Okay! ;)

oh yeah almost forgot about my G-manness… Thanks Ascaloth.

I AM G-MAN!!!!!!

    It gets on my nerve when people think that Naruto is also the only anime that’s ever existed too, but I try not to mind it too much.

    Sorry G-Man, I couldn’t help myself. You rock.

    I loved “Naruto” back in the past..(lol)..
    At first, I thought that it was the coolest thing ever..
    But then, when I watched other animes..
    I HATE “Naruto”..
    Other animes are WAY better than “Naruto”
    And I regretted that I watched 160 episodes of “Naruto”..
    I could have done many things with that time..

    But I have to say, “Naruto” is the show that introduced me to anime..
    So, without Naruto, I wouldn’t be here right now..

    “Simple, last week I came face to face with a die hard Naruto fan who told me that Naruto was deeper than Death note.”

    I dunno about that, but i have seen Harutards that claimed Haruhi was deeper than Death Note, or Zetsutards who claimed that Zetsubou Sensei was actually funny ! Who in their right minds would spout such nonsense ?

    Lies, all lies. Everyone knows that a measure of how good an anime series is is how good it sells. Thats all that matters. Naruto is teh bestest animu evar.

    As an avid Zetsutard, I must say manga has rocked my s0x the whole way, laughing.

    Anyway, the problem with Naruto isn’t that people like it, or that they often would like to make babies with it. The problem with Naruto is that it draws in a huge crowd of people who refuse to expand their viewings before becoming fanatical over the first thing they see. Relatively speaking, Narutards resemble what we would if we stopped watching anime at DBZ, Sailor Moon, Speed Racer, Gundam or To Heart. . . Or maybe Death Note if you’re an ebil newbie. Well, everyone has their own starter anime. If we stopped there instead of expanding our horizons, we’d all be ____tards.

    Most of them just need to take off their headbands and watch some new crap. They’d reach a point where they became tolerable soon after, I believe.

    In short, the stigma of idiocy around ‘Naruto’ is the fault of the fans, rather than the mediocre series itself.

    Me and my Friends have been saying that the main character should die. Namely Ichigo from Bleach. Compared to him, naruto is God. Maybe not. Naruto is the path to the fork in the road. Many people have started anime because of Naruto and Bleach. From there, they moved on (one fork) or they stayed and become tards (the other). In my opinion, the anime doesn’t do the manga justice at all. One Piece has never dissapointed me though.

    Is the hating of naruto a form of bandwagoning?

  14. 14 0ne 98 comments

    Naruto to the 2000s is like Dragonball Z in the 90s. There’ll always be a Shonen Jump manga adapted anime to rule them all.

    but dragon ball was original… in the 90’s at least. Its artwork was also revolutionary… but i just hate spiky head characters after a while. Naruto came after dragonball. Perhaps its good for people who have just stepped into the hobby of watching anime to get a little entertainment which they have never seen before.

    However, people will always try to promote what they viewed. The worst thing is, shutting their narrow-minded self up like a cocoon. There are Dragonballtards out there too and even tards for everything, but naruto is where tards gather i suppose.

    NARUTO is misinformating about the real ninjas. Real ninjas were assasins, terrorists, spy, etc. There were no “good ninjas” at all. Naruto is giving an unreal images of ninjas.

    Sorry for my bad english.

Do not use any < and > for your own sake. It will end the comment there and then. Also, there is an automatic IQ filter which weeds out comments made by those who accidentally got transported from the stone age.
