For the 2% of you more like 90% that still watch Naruto on a weekly basis, the last episode was pretty grim dark. There was as much blood shed as a typical Elfen Lied episode.

What kind of plot changes and story directions would need to take place for you to start watching Naruto again?

Is the anime unsalvageable, or can something good come from it?

Grim dark is definitely not something that would draw me back to the series. There isn't anything I can think of to interest me in ever watching/reading from the point I stopped, which was before shippuden.
>>
>>100384641
just get rid of naruto and make kakashi the main character. his backstory of watching his best friend get crushed by a boulder and killing his best friend's love interest in the heart with lightning while growing up to be a teacher of the ninja arts despite his crippling low chakra is far more interesting than "hurr durr nobody likes me ;_;"
>>
Oh shit. Have they gotten to the Obito/water-nin part yet? Is it does well or do we have another Pain fight situation?
>>
Damn, did they unmask Obito already? Oh boy, I sure hope they gave him a cool voice!
>>
I still watch it, but its become more about what it could have been, rather than what it is.

Imagine if the story had started out a year before naruto got his headband. We could get to see his isolation and struggles to get attention from those around him rather than be informed about it years later in flashbacks, or just straight up being told how tough its been.

Imagine if it never went full retard on the power level shit. None of that chosen one shit, or prophecy or whatever. No destiny crap.

Imagine sasuske not going full retard. He stated his goals were to restore his clan and get revenge on his brother early. Yet for some reason 100 episodes in (including filler) he wants to throw away his life to kill his brother (thus making sure his clan cant be restored, which since he mentioned that first was clearly the more important goal).

What if naruto and the others didnt become ninjas at age 13 but at age 18? Then it wouldnt be a bunch of teenagers from one village suddenly becomming way too strong way too young.

And more than all. Imagine it without the 40 or so asspulls that the author has pulled over the years when he writes himself into a corner, or changes his mind.

The premise and the world of naruto could have been so much better than what it became, and it saddens me. At least we've gotten some pretty cool fight scenes out of it though.
>>
>>100386598
>Pain fight situation
Would've been nice if the animation was on that sort of level and ambition but no. It was a solid episode, not as crazy as 322 but the art was solid and there were some nice action cuts.

Everything up until now didn't happen. Go back to beginning of Zabuza Arc when it was still good. Make it actual ninjas doing ninja things, where they can win with tactics, and cunning, instead of wizard wars with who can use the biggest jutsu.

Naruto continues to try and force his ninja way, only to to suffer as reality sets in. Eventually goes MAXIMUM EDGY due to all that suffering, goes berserk, runs away from village, let's nine tails take over, and roams the land as a natural disaster.

Kakashi, and Sasuke become a duo, and leave the village to go train as a duo a la Gai/Lee.

Sakura is still useless because women in shounen never do shit.
>>
I just want actual ninjas. I'm not into the friendship armor and speeches either. A more serious tone maybe. I think Kishimoto would be better off doing stuff in the Seinin demographic like he wanted to. That being said, isn't there a Kakashi special coming up? I'll probably watch that.

I would pick it up if everyone was a cute girl.

If they stop giving the same flash backs over and over and over, it would be at least 5x better. I swear I've seen the flashback of sasuke and his brother killing his parents at least on 50 different occasions.
