Naruto Pros and Cons
Posted 5/27/08 , edited 5/27/08
Unlike the other threads, this is about the pros and cons of Naruto, now in this thread, you should all state an approximately equal amount of both Pros and Cons.

This is a chance to prove yourself that you're not a narutard.

Here are some of the things I hope you can respect to keep the thread clean.
1. No arguing among members.
2. Your posts should be well explained.
3. Your pros and cons must be balanced!!! Don't have 2 more than the other one.

Here's a structure I recommend using.
PROS:
-Pro no1
-Reason for Pro no1

-Pro no2
-Reason for Pro no 2

CONS:
-Con no1
-reason for Con no1

Con no2
-Reason for Con no2

CONCLUSION:
You can give a conclusion about the show if you want, but it has to reflect a bit on your pros and cons.

i guess the pros for me is the...

the knowledge of shikamaru when it sometimes works
the nice story plot
the love teams
the techniques
the bonding of characters
the improvement of some chracters
kakashi....
the costumes...and yeah the unbelievable set of imagination of the creators..

the cons for me...

the stupidness,retardness of naruto hes so damn weak i wonder im sure the creators are hearing these kind of comments about naruto but they do not do anything about it ......i just had enough of all so boringness of naruto he only knows a handfullof techniques..

the kind of graphics they show in naruto remember the fight when naruto and lee's team go to a cave to save gaara and when the gai team try to remove the seal and they activated a technique that copied them and when gai battle his copy the graphic quality is just so boring...and thats only one of those bad quality of graphics...it really sucks and the suckiness of the graphics quality gets even more suck as the series continues...i guess they need to refresh their drawing board....

the continues fights...and yeah i can take all the flashbacks eventhough its realy too much but what i cant take is that they always have the same fight whoever they fight like for example naruto when he fights he always use a lot of stuupid kagebunshin and gets beat up and after that they have a lot of talking and then without you knowing it naruto already beating the guy because hes opponent is getting pissed of his so stupid talks...

thats only some of those things that i really hate in naruto but i still have thousand of cons to tell i just dont like to talk about it anymore it gets me stressed out........and yeah right now i really dont often much watch the naruto series i much more prefer the manga now...

Why do people ignore logical threads like this?

For both manga and anime...

Pros:
Very entertaining - It helps you to relax a little bit and forget the chaotic world you're living.
Has an entertaining story line - You'll be surprised on many things that you didn't expect to happen.
Real-life psychology builds - People can relate to the feelings and traits of many characters, especially Naruto who regrets many things in his past.
Almost all characters are Dynamic Characters - Meaning they can change as the story goes on.
Available in the internet - Yeah

Cons:
Has a slow facing - Naruto's training alone eats up several chapters.
Has inferior graphics - Compared to other animes.

even after this, i'm probably still a narutard, somewhere deep inside the crevices of my soul.

Pros:
1) I like the values and the ideals that the protagonist embraces -- his resilience, his unending loyalty to his friends and anyone close to him, and for the simple fact that he can be knocked down 100 times but still pick himself up again 100 times. It's those kind of things that i see myself lacking way too often.
2) The unique characters. So yeah, occasionally we might encounter a cookie-cutter character. But mostly in the fillers. But overall, i think the main characters are all different, both in physique and personality. All of them add a lot of flavor into the anime/manga, even the neglected and/or dead ones.
3) The manga/anime has its suspenseful moments, sad moments, happy moments, humorous moments, and moments you're kind of like "WTF...?" A rollercoaster of emotions! who doesn't need that once in a while? even if it's not your own life.
4) Because this anime/manga has been running so long, you can't help but start to really understand the characters. It's kind of scary when you start identifying with them. Character development is so important because you start enjoying the storyline more and more. Especially watching the character(s) grow up.
5) Ninjas!! D: -- the plural noun speaks for itself!

Cons:
1) The Anime leaves a lot to be desired. Maybe i'm just being picky, but seriously, is it just me or did Shippuden overload with a bunch of dialogue scenes and crappy suspenseful fights that last like 20 eps?
2) i had to look underneath the underneath way too often for my brain to fully recover from the chapter before.
3) Itachi and Sasuke's fight was way too anti-climatic. i just didn't like it.
4) the movie has better fighting animation than the anime, but terrible storline. vice versa for the anime.

Conclusion:
Well, logic or no logic, Naruto/Naruto Shippunden will always be my favorite anime no matter how much hate it gets.

PROS:

OST
Along with the BGM, there are really good openings and ending that make me feel like "yeah, I really wanna watch this show". It doesn't get tiring after a while.

Character variety with development
Although some might think having too many characters takes away from the overall meaning from the show, I disagree. With how long the show's been running, it's necessary to have a wide range of major/minor characters so you're not seeing the same "hero saves day" routine. Also, even though there are more characters, there's still character development, which you don't see a lot when it's that many. I kind of want more from the characters sometimes (indulge in seeing people's fanart, fanfiction, etc.).

Morals/Beliefs that make the show what it is: a kids' show.
If I had kids, I'd let them watch this show. It does teach friendship, self-esteem, and all the other corny things you end up learning as a kid. It's just shown in a way that's not dumbed down to Nick Jr. I'm 19 and still watching it because I love what the show gives.

CONS:

Fillers
I understand the need for fillers...but when there's 100 consecutive (at most) of fillers and the plot is next to nonexistent, it really drags the need to watch it. I sat through every last filler so I'm gonna stick with it until the end.

Some lacking animation
Because it's so long-running with an episode having to be expected a week, you tend to see some major lags in animation...which, for some reason, matches the lacking animation in the movies. I don't think I'll understand that.

CONCLUSION:
I have to admit, Naruto's not my favorite anime, but it does have some merit. I like it, and I'll continue to watch it.
