No matter what, he is still the villain of the first episodes of Naruto. Througth a gang of mobsters with a knife in his mouth, beheading the bossy asshole and then falling to the ground with fucktons of weapons stabbed to his back.

The first 20 episodes were Golden, I tell you, Golden.
>>
golden showers?
>>
Indeed they were...

Sad to say it all just goes down from there.
>>
Yes, and this series should have stopped after 20 episodes. If you still try to defend the series after that, then I will start to sage.

This series failed because Gaara wasnt the made character
>>
>>11317262
made = main
>>
zabuza = God
>>
>>11317277
This series failed because Shikamaru wasnt the main character
>>
Orochimaru has a big snake.
A huge snake, a powerful snake.
Even the ladies fear him for his snake is huge,

This series failed because Naruto wasn't the main character.

wait...what?

Now, don't get me wrong: It's heyday was, strictly speaking, the Chuunin exam. The forest of death had some cool shit in it: More than one special-animation-team fight, giant monsters, the one guy who says "Lucky!", etc. And the obligatory shounen tournament arc that followed, lifted directly from DBZ or Yu Yu Hakusho, had some well animated/cool fights also. And, I guess that frog summoning bit was cool when he managed to summon the big boss frog and then passed out. There was about 20 episodes of good shit in the Chuunin exam.

The problem, of course, is that the exam lasted nearly 50 episodes, and you had to wait through nearly 15 hours of bullshit to get to the 10 hours of good stuff. Like, remember that written exam? Five episodes of "oh noes, i dint' study!!" right there. Like anyone needs to see that.

By contrast, the first 20 episodes of the show are good without being interrupted by gay shit, ending in the Zabuza/Haku speacial team fight. There's a bit of "I just attacked you, and now let me explain how it worked!", but that was forgivable. There's not a whole lot of reason to keep watching, though.

Sasuke usurped that title from him around the beginning of the Chunnin exam, when he fights Rock Lee in the hallway, and Naruto loses in one kick. This destroys the "rivals compete to become stronger" aspect for pretty much ever, as Naruto sulks in Sasukes shadow for about a hundred episodes.
>>
My favorite characters always got killed off. Zabuza, Kimimaro, Sasori (although it appears he chose death).
>>
First of all, I can't believe we're actually discussing Naruto on /a/. How lame.

Second of all, I've come to the realization that like it or not Naruto is important to the anime industry and for that reason alone I should at least experience enough so that I can name the main characters.

So, oh god I can't believe I'm saying this, which is less shitty. Manga or anime?
>>
>>11317741
Well, they're both bad. But the anime has a team of actual Japanese people (as opposed to outsourcing to Koreans) whose job is solely to animate fights scenes. Of course, the episodes they animate are few and far between, but they ARE good. With respect to the plot, you have to wade through a lot of bullshit either way, since it's SHONEN LONG. I'd recommend the show, but make absolutely sure to miss any filler.
>>
>>11317741
i hear the manga is better but i choose to watch the anime (inb4 gb2animesuki ect.)
>>
Don't you realise Anon? That's how they get you, first they actually TRY, they try really hard, they set up a story and characters, and background and all kinds of interesting shit that pulls you in. Then once you're too deep....they stop giving a shit cause they know you'll buy anything Naruto related now that you've got a taste, a taste of what could be, but probably never will.

>>11317823
i havent brought anything

You invested time. They're actually life-vampires, and they drain your essence as you watch the show.

>>11317234

Is this some ZUBUZA SWORD thread?
>>
>>11317962
it was now its about essence
>>
Itachi was a good boy after all

it just killed any good in Naruto(manga, nat the character)
>>
>>11317961
That's exactly what the vampires want you to think!
>>
Conclusion: Naruto is the ultimate tease/troll.
>>
>>11318017
i'm on the anime so I have'nt seen it yet although i've read the spoilers
>>
>>11318051
aslong as I dont spend any money its win/win lol
>>
>>11318066
That title is reserved for Masahiro Sakurai, Lord of Japan Time, and King of the Trolls
>>
>>11318115
He's too far gone. The vampires have drained him of his will to resist.

At this rate, my Spinzaku folder will be larger than my sacred Suigintou folder. And that's terrible.

Speaking of which, it's been a while since we've had a good Gin Hijack. Though the question remains, do I bother?
