Before Naruto was born, a great demon fox had attacked the Hidden Leaf Village. A man known as the 4th Hokage sealed the demon inside the newly born Naruto, causing him to unknowingly grow up detested by his fellow villagers. Despite his lack of talent in many areas of ninjutsu, Naruto strives for only one goal: to gain the title of Hokage, the strongest ninja in his village. Desiring the respect he never received, Naruto works towards his dream with fellow friends Sasuke and Sakura and mentor Kakashi as they go through many trials and battles that come with being a ninja. Based on the manga by Kishimoto Masashi.
Naruto is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It\'s a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn\'t very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping ***gotry and DARKNESS. The normal anime fan can see this as the s**t it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the s**t of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& ***gots who engage in every kind of ***gotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the jutsus, peculiar, colorful clothes, the whole ninja ***gotry and everything about the Naruto world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall preachiness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and ***ards eat this s**t right the f**k up.
why i appreciate the whole thing about NARUTO:
i always hear bad comments about \"me watching this anime(naruto)\". they say that watching this stuff is so out of my age. im 20. but isnt that more funny that my 42 year old uncle still watch naruto? so how\'s it? it only means that it doesnt matter if how old a person, it doesnt mean that watching this stuff a person is childish or anything...,,that hes out of this world!!! it simply means that we have our own likes and dislikes...,,,we should respect each and everyone\'s perspectives. if you dont like watching naruto then just dont give bad comments about us...,,Ill tell you this , (for those naruto haters out there): YOU DONT REALLY KNOW THE REAL REASON WHY WE WATCH THIS ANIME.....,,,yes its ANIME.. but personally, ive learned a lot of moral lessons from this anime. ive learned how not to give up my dreams, ive learned the value of friendship,etc...,,if you ask why? he says \"That\'s my way of ninja\" and me says \"That\'s my way of life\" :-)
great anime but not perfect
i say naruto is a really good anime with all things about it considered, also i found the fillers enjoyable even if there their is no more reason to talk about them seeing as we have the option to skip them now.
This anime just flat out stinks. All the fillers are super annoying. I managed to watch up to half of the series, but I stopped because of all the bullcrap. Watch this only if you can live with 2349785236498572364985 episodes of fillers, and horrible boredom.
