i'm one of the few, if any, that dislikes naruto. it's like, been there, done that... DBZ clone... then people will be like, "NO it's not like DBZ, it's much better!" and i'm all, umm... yeah it's better, because it came 10+ years later, things have been learned, changed.... 10+ years, of course it'll be better. it's like comparing a horse drawn carriage with a car. but it's still the same damn thing. talk, fight, talk, fight, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, fight, fight, fight, talk, talk, talk talk talk talk talk fight talk talk talk talk talk talk talk. OMG, there's someone stronger?! OMG, let's waste 30 ep on one fight and while we're fighting, let's talk about your past and history so we'll expand on more eps.

i dunno, i get bored by it. it's not anything new. and i cant stand that "inner sakura" it's not clever, nor funny when she does it. and i cant comprehend sakura's thinking about friendship. she gave up her bestfriend, the one who gave her confidence and everything, because they both like the same guy. and that naruto -.-' such a punk... anyways, i just dont like it is all. not kewl!

Honestly Avatar of Law, you're comparing this anime way too much to DBZ, it's very different, and for the record some of the "longest" lasting single battles in the series are maybe about 3 episodes, 4 at max.

Maybe if you'd look at it "seperately" and didn't compare every aspect of it to DBZ, you'd appreciate. But, it's your opinion.

I think it's a great series. It's sad to see that it's going to be put on Toonami, and will probably recieve the overhype factor, and we'll all get bored of it ...

But until then, I'm really enjoying the series. I've read all of the manga up to the current chapter 251, and it's getting really interesting now.

I still haven't seen episode 124 though, sadly. I've heard it's incredibly awesome with Rock Lee going "Drunken Fists" on Kimmimaro. And yes, Rock Lee is easily the best.

If anyone here hasn't seen the series and would consider getting into it, I'd suggest checking out the manga at narutofan.com, I read up to the latest chapters in a week, so you can catch up quickly.

Now I'm going back to watch episodes that are pretty good, and great fights. And I honestly kind of like the anime more, it just seems to bring out the characters emotions better than the manga does.

Yeah, good series. I wouldn't say it's the greatest, but it's currently one of my top favorites along with Bleach, Getbackers, Samurai Champloo, Samurai 7, and more.

too much? i only said like two aspects about it, how they fight and talk. that's not too much comparing it. i even gave good points on why i disliked it. i stated how i disliked sakura's inner character and her logic, and how boring it was. i'll expand more... i just dont see what all the hype is, like i said, been there, done that. i doesnt really add anything new to the genre. it's still fighting and ppl with powers. same of flash backs, same old talking while they're fighting. i'd be more impressed if they would do something NEW. i'm not comparing TOO MUCH on DBZ, just that it's too bland. it's been over 10 years, all they did was improve on the animation, a bit of a better storyline, and that's it. no improvements to the genre.

Well it's just the fact that I've seen you bring up "DBZ" in almost every Naruto thread here and in the past that probably got me edgy.

But yeah, people are entitled to their opinion.

I agree that Sakura is a pretty lame character, but now she'll probably be good ... considering you probably don't know (And don't care, but I'll go ahead and state it) there's a 2 1/2 year time leap in the series, so now the characters a little older, and have new techniques, and some (Sakura) are a lot better now (Since she was trained by Tsunade).

With the absence of a certain character, and Sakura sporting new moves, i'd say she's going to be a satisfactory character now. Before she was basically just a cheerleader, but now she's got potential.

I agree and disagree with you AoL. The series lately has shown its DBZ influence more so then ever. This is because the creator of Naruto is a big fan of Akira Toriyama. But Naruto is far from a DBZ clone. It actually has a worthy plot that changes consistently. Not the same "Fight, die, resurrect, rinse, repeat" cycle that DBZ fell into. The latest epic battle between two of the characters reaked of DBZ though. Attack, power-up, attack, power-up....they even had a power struggle! But everything previous to that fight has not been that bad.

The fights do not span more than two to three episodes (if its between two people). And the flashbacks are kept to a minimum.

Inner Sakura barely ever appears. So I don't really understand how it can bug you that much. I don't think you've really seen much of it, and you're just basing your opinon off and episode here or there that you've see. (I could be wrong though. But that's what it appears.)

Yeah, Naruto's a progressive anime. I liked it at first, but the more I saw the more I got into it.

But as for it being DBZ'ish ...

As I like to say, as long as we don't have characters dancing around and yelling "Fusion!!" ... we're fine.

I hate to sound like a dick but AoL you're actually not saying anything. The ONLY reason you dislike it based on what you said and a little reading between the lines is you think it's similar to DBZ. You're not even looking at it objectively you just automatically compare it and say "no I'm not going to like it no matter how good a show it is."

From the episodes I've seen it's pretty kick ass. There are some MINOR similarities to DBZ in the talk fight repetition but really there isn't much of a way around that. They do that in every action show ever frigging created.

I'm not trying to argue with you I just think you're being a little narrow minded about it all I guess. *shrugs* oh well everyone is entitled to their opinions.

Anywho, personally I think it's one of the better shows I've seen. Not the best, but pretty good. The series throws twists at you rather repeatedly, it's interesting watching the progression and growth of the characters as they go through stuff that both physically and psychologically scars them and changes them for the better and for the worse at times.

It's a very progressive and interesting show as far as I've seen and I hope to borrow the DVD's from Zabuza sometime soon so I can watch the episodes I've missed and catch up to the rest of the series so far.

Honestly, Kabuto is becomming one of my favorite characters.

Have you guys read over the "rumors" and talk about him? Some things really sound believable, and he defininently sounds like an interesting character that hasn't been completely revealed.

- There's talk he's part of Ataksuki. (not sure if that's spelled right)
- He has a demon within him, since there's a few things in the manga and series that speak of his "boiling blood".
- He's actually very old, but pulling of a "young" trick like Tsunade.

Honestly I don't believe any of those really. But I do find it interesting that Orochimaru hasn't cast a seal on him unlike his other "followers". I don't know, most of the talk about him seems a little far fetched, but I do believe he's a character that could definently give us something unexpecting in the future.

Or, I'm just getting way into it.

I think I've missed a lot more than I'd originally estimated. Xeo, from your last post the only name I recognized was Orochimaru. The rest are total blanks to me. (O)_(O) damn that sucks. have to get Zabuza to let me borrow his DVD's

Well if you know who Orochimaru is, you've probably more than likely seen Kabuto though.

Spoiler:
I kind of just spoiled it for you, sorry. So run from that other post of mine ... or something. >__>


He's the white haired character with glasses that Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and the others meet before the start of the Chuunin exam.

Kabuto is another genin that is testing to become a chuunin. He's very smart and keeps tabs on everyone he meets. He's very generous to Naruto, he seems to be weaker then the rest.....*Smiles and kicks Xeo in the foot.*

I've actually wondered about him sometimes. I believe there is definitely more about him than what has been shown so far. I can't recall ever hearing something about "boiling blood". That may be because it was mentioned in a much earlier episode. He does intrigue me as well. He is such a mystery to date, and I'm sure many fans of the series like that about him.

Yeah just cause its like taht on the import DVD that doesnt mean funimation wont find a way to screw it over.
And ALso about gaara pwning sasuke your right NO one likes sasuke anymore...at least i dont But i don't wanna bother and Change My Name TO Nara Shikamaru.

*ALso stomps on Xeo's Other Foot*

Ginji is right were are you hearing all of this from. Must be stoopid (I know its misspelled) fan rumours

*Puts on Grin and puts on Fox face*

But yes Naruto is somewhat DBZish but its nothing like it. It actually in my opinion has a story and the battles dont take 25 episodes long when the planet has 5 minutes till it erupts. But yeah What im intrested in are teh 7 Swordsmen of the mist i mean we only saw 2 and i really like there swords and wish to see more of them. But im me and i think i just have a thing for giant swords. BUt yeah i read the manga study take ntoes and quiz with otehr fans (Not really but i know a lot) and i personally think i am a huge naruto Know-It-All. And the Kabuto Rumors idk i jsut belive fan rumors because some let me down.
