>Yfw Kisihmoto had no idea what he was doing with Orochimaru to this very day

Seriously, I recently re-read the entirety of Naruto. Why? Because I honestly thought I could make some sense out of that story.
Nope.
It's a gigantic clusterfuck of nonsense and bullshit, and I highly doubt Kishimoto even knows what's going on anymore. This story should have ended 10 years ago with Zabuza.
>>
My gf is the biggest Jiraiya fangirl I've ever met, and she to this day is stressing how we haven't seen Jiraiya's revived body yet, and how he is going to show up and save everyone in the end.

I think that's giving Kishi too much credit. He most likely has forgotten Jiraiya, just like he forgot Hayate Gekko.
>>
So was that Deidra Akatsuki person a chick or a dude? Was that ever confirmed?
>>
7.
>>
>>101818423
Well, everything you say is true yet kids love it so...I dunno, roll with it, I guess.

Kishimoto made lots of money by stumbling around with the story. Haters gon' hate.
>>
>>101818956
Kids love it? I'm pretty sure most people are only reading Naruto because they started when they were kids and just want to see how it ends. Naruto hasn't been good since the Chu-Nin exam.
>>
>>101818646
but they didn't forget about him, the only reason he didn't revive was because his body is 500 meters under water, too much pressure and shit, Kabuto said this already
>>
>>101819703
>Kabuto said this already
what? when?
>>
>>101819751
During the war arc, when talking about how he needed a person's blood to revive them
>>
Itachi only existed to give sasuke a reason to be edgy
he got a nice personality and purpose and some okay fights
he even kinda acts like a ninja

something I never understood is why the Akatsuki let themselves be Madara's pawns
they seem to be the a collection of no-teamwork selfish pricks
>>
>>101819213
That is a long fucking time.

I personally stuck it out with the anime until...maybe the third or so arc of Shippuden.

Then it just got way too dark for my taste. Far from what I had picked it up for originally (a high-octane action series with a fair bit of lighthearted goofiness).
>>
>>101819953
>the war arc
You're gonna need to be a little more specific than that. Who was he talking to? Was it during his fight with Itachi?

Speaking of the fight with Itachi, fuck the Sharingan. Seriously: the majority of the series revolves around the sharingan, and they literally nothing but deus ex machina eyes.
>>
>>101818423
aruto 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 faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit 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 shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry 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 faggotry 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 underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.

Naruto is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Naruto threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.

Now lets get dubs.
>>
>>101818797
Deidara was a man. The only female Akatsuki was the paper woman. Kanon, I think.
Also one of Pain's bodies was female.
>>
>>101820076
He was speaking to obito before the reveal, and a bit after they agreed to be allies
>>
>>101818423
I'm still pissed they killed off Nagato like that. Dude was a bro. Although I can see why they couldn't keep him around, he would have fucked up Madaras plans royally if he had turned.

>>101820076
Not him but it was in the conversation between Kabuto and Tobi when Kabuto made his approach. He mentioned that he wanted Jiraya and Shisui too but couldnt because of how Jiraya's body was buried in the ocean after the fight against Pain, and Danzou presumably destroyed Shisui's eye which would be his remaining DNA
>>
>>101820331
>herp derp i said something retarded
Fuck off shi/tg/uy
>>
>>101820399
I've got to wonder if he sent any of his dead guys to the ocean to find him
>>
>>101820309
The thing is, Kishimoto is just fumbling around in the dark. He has ZERO plan as to how the story is going to progress. Every new bit of information we get concerning either the Uchiha or the Uzumaki clan further cements the fact that Kishi is making shit up as he goes and hasn't had a single good, consistent idea since Jiraiya.
>>
>>101818423
What are some specifics on what doesnt make sense?
>>
>>101819213
Honestly i thought everything up to the pain arc and that arc itself is gold.
>>
>>101820703
are you shitting me? Kishi has been moving around the rules ever since the introduction of the mangekyo sharingan. Any rules that exist at one point are conveniently forgotten in order to push the bullshit plot forward
>>
>>101820888
Just list some specifics i cant think of anything.
>>
>>101820775
I agree, people exagerate when they name the turning points the chuunin exam or de zabuza fight, the story was going fine till the pain arc, the conclusion to that with ressurrection and parallel to it the revelation about Itachi backstory and Sasuke going "darkness" was the actual point that everything bizarrely turned to shit
>>
>>101821098
I count until early into the timeskip as readable/decent, then it slowly starts going to shit.

lots of people will defend Naruto, will defend the writing and all the stuff Kishi has put out - except for the war, because no matter how much you love Naruto, you can't make The War make sense.
>>
>>101822092
they can only put so much in the games and still have time or the space to make it. So they keep it as simple as they can, while trying to tell it the best they can.

Can someone explain this to me? Tobi spent like a hundred chapters jerking Sasuke around because of how important he was to Tobi's plan.

And then just... nothing... nothing at all.
>>
>>101822092

Everything about the Pain arc except for Jiraiya's death. The manga was better than the game, and the anime was better than both.

in game Obito has Shisui's eye
>>
>>101822257
>Can someone explain this to me
No. It makes no sense. Tobi's ultimate goal had absolutely nothing to do with Sasuke. Tobi (being Obito) wanted to revive Madara and use the magic super+ sharingans to make Madara even stronger. Sasuka has literally nothing to do with fucking any of it.
>>
>>101822461

Remember when the Byakugan was important and it was said the Sharingan was a mutation that appeared from it? Now the Sharingan is basically pre-Ninja Jesus hax eyes and can do anything.

I dropped Naruto the manga when a 16 year old boy, killed a ninja that whole countries feared and couldn't kill for decades.

I dropped the anime when Pein died.

I'm still baffled how I was told the stronger the ninjutsu, the bigger the negative feedback, yet you have so much bullshit going on willy nilly with no side effects. Two comets? No problem. Army of powerful ninja zombies? Go ahead. Taking eyes and wearing them like accessories? I change mine every weekend. Taking your animal spirit doesn't kill you? The other 7 were retards that didn't know how to survive the process.
