    Anyone for Naruto?

    Of all the anime shows I've watched over the years Naruto is my favorite next to Inuyusha. Naruto is a funny character, and in a lot of ways he reminds me of me, funny but if you hurt my friends I will get very serious kind of personality. The Jutsu techs that the characters have are awesome like Sasuke's Dragon Flame Jutsu and Naruto's Shadow Clone Jutsu. The Villians are cool and the characters make the story what it is, awesome. So, what do you think about this anime?
    Hand and Hand,

    I haven't seen the manga...other than that I think this show is pretty good. I would have to say it's my 4th favorite anime.

    I like the Manga better because it doesn't have all those annoying filler episodes.

    Oh yea I forgot..Naruto has lots of filler episodes...still it's pretty good! ^.^

    Shikamaru is my kind of guy He's cool and extremely smart!
    His shadow jutsu is completly worthless, but he finds ways to
    make it work out so wellll <3
    mm... the lazy side of him, I can do without though

    I haven't been keeping up with it, but I did download all the episodes to around 130 about half a year ago. I enjoyed it for the most part, not sure what episode its on now. About time for me to download what I've missed.

    A bit overrated albiet, but still fun to watch, if not just to see what all the buzz is about.

    I have mixed feelings about Naruto in most of its forms.

    I lost a lot of respect for the anime when they started pumping out nothing but fillers in Japan while waiting for the manga to gain some forward distance from them, but I guess I should come to expect that from a mainstream anime. Before that, I had problems with how they were handling the art. I can understand if the art style shifts around due to changes in staff, but the quality of some of the art and animation was absolutely terrible at times.

    Beside that, Viz really dropped the ball on the manga translation. I can understand if a translation doesn't turn out exactly the way I want, but "Art of the Doppleganger!"? Give me a break. I'm not sure if they've reprimanded the situation by now, so if there is someone who follows Viz's translation information would be appreciated.

    Then, of course, there is the Naruto anime dub. I won't go into that since they're playing it fair and allowing releases of the uncut Japanese sub. That won't change how much I am dismayed with the Naruto anime in general, though.

    As for where the manga currently is in Japan...It's alright. I'm not sure if it's because I was just much more of a Narutard when it was first introduced to me by Sean in 2003-2004 (I can't be bothered to remember), but the storyline itself seemed to become less appealing after "Part 1" of the series ended. Of course, it may very well be that things just need time to warm up (which should be expected anyway considering that it's only one new chapter per week), but I could attribute my lack of interest in some way to the fact that Naruto is no longer fresh in my mind. Only time will tell though.

    I can't get enough of Naruto. I'm up to episode 164, and I'm loving it so far. It's like it never gets dull, like most animes do. There's lways something awesome happening. Though I will admit, I really didn't enjoy the first few episodes. Around 22-24, things really started to pick up.

    Haha, some people are easily pleased aka. Me.

    I don't mind it at the moment.

    Hey, is it true, Rock Lee gets really buff? I was reading into future episodes on wiki, and there was an image of him and Gai. Lee was like totally ripped o_o

    Haha, I probably wouldn't have minded it so much if they hadn't included Hinata in the way they did. They corrupted one of my favorite characters in such corny ways.

    What? Is this Lee thing in the anime or something? If you're talking about Part 2 of the manga, I haven't seen anything of the sort.

    Link plz.

    Yeah, here it is. I think it's the manga.

    I was mistaken. I saw this thing like 2 months ago, so forgive me for being wrong. He's just wearing a chuunin outfit.

    Oh, yeah, he has the Chuunin vest and he seems to be taller. That never struck me as too radical a change though.

    He still has Gai's dynamic jumpsuit, which is most important.

    I would definitely agree that it is overrated, but for some reason I really liked Naruto. However, I saw the original Japanese version and not the shitty Americanized shit. Sure, it has a lot of fillers which I do hate, but the story overall is rather interesting. Not to mention the way the whole ninjitsu is portrayed with all that magical shit. I'm sure it could've done better without the fillers, like any anime, but the fight scenes were awesome. I've watched 110 episodes, after that I hear it gets stupid. The techniques and fighting are lovable and witty, and Kakashi pwns. Other than that Naruto's voice kind of annoys me, along with that chicks. But it's easily tolerated when the story actually gets moving.

    I don't see anything really bad about Naruto in the american version..what is so bad about it? and don't say Naruto has an annoying voice..I hear that A LOT!

    I`d rather watch my anime in my language unless it`s One Piece *shudders*.

    I actually like the DUB of Nauto on CN better since all they did was localize and edited out language and blood. I like the voices here better.

    I found the dub in One Piece to be much more tolerable than Naruto, even if it wasn't much better. The rap made me laugh and smile.

    Well, it`s all in a matter of a opinion, you being part of the minority.

    Of course its all about opinion. I'm not so sure the Naruto dub is more popular than the One Piece dub, however. >.>

    I am.

    One Piece is in the below ratings at Naruto is the most watched hsow on Toonami.

    The ocntract for 4kids ends at the Alabasta arc, so the only reason One Piece is still around on Toonami is because it`s almost done. They will find a crappy way to end it. They excel in making everytihng crappy.

    Naruto in general, manga or otherwise, is much more popular than One Piece. Of course it's going to have a better following when it hits as an anime in America. That doesn't prove who's voice acting the general public prefers. People will watch the Naruto dub more than One Piece because it is Naruto.

    Um, yes, but you see if 4kids did Naruto instead, and Viz did One Piece, it would be the opposite effect.

    Highly doubtful. People would not and do not care how crappy the Naruto dub is, they'd watch it anyway. Viz screwed up the manga from/at the beginning, and people bought it anyway because it was Naruto. It's the hype.

    4Kids may not be great, but Viz/ShoPro isn't any better here. =P

    Hmmm as far as the dubbing is concerned,
    language is only 1/2 the issue. As we all know,
    CN takes popular anime from Japan and airs them
    in English. Well, for long time fans of the anime
    (myself, being a long time fan of Naruto) are often
    ... well, disappointed when it comes here in English.
    Why? I can think of a couple reasons I dislike it.

    Though I speak English as my main language, I'd rather
    see the anime in its purest form, with original voices
    and animations.
    Second, after knowing about the anime for years before
    it even got to CN, it is sort of saddening, for the fear of
    what it will become. We all know about Yugioh and how uberly
    popular it was in Jpn before it came here . Now look at it...
    Same can be said for Pokemon, Inu Yasha and many other anime
    I can't think of atm. With Naruto being popularized by CN
    and other companies like Hot Topic... I dunno... it's becoming
    less "cool" to me. hehe! ^^ Only my opinion of course!
    There are other reasons, but these are main.

    Actually, now that I think of it. We would probably tend to
    like the version we started with, whether it be subbed or dubbed.
    Coming in here, seeing that most of you like the Dubbed version
    better, I'm guessing there are mostly new fans in here.
