Erm… Am I the only one who ponders why Naruto wears a orange jumpsuit? I mean seriously, he’s a friking Ninja! Sure, it’s stylish, kewl, and it makes his eyes pop but come on! Shouldn’t he, as a trained assassin, clad himself in a more appropriate attire?

Just something that bothers me about the show… I mean, I love it and all, but WTF?

Because Naruto is flamboyant. He doesnt try to be all sneaky and creep up on people... he jumps out and attacks them head on. It's foolish and un-ninja like... but Naruto isnt exactly known to be the ideal ninja.

Uh oh mj is on a rampage today... Better watch out.

Seriously though, Naruto isn't a real ninja. He screams his ass off and wears almost all neon orange. It was a poor attempt to attract people who wanted the real deal.

However; those traits are not mentioned in the actual anime, you need to pick them up on your own, just 'cuz that's how the series is, shitty, and full of plot holes.

Now the reason why Naruto has such a large fanbase? Its the next-gen Dragon Ball. People my age is from the DB generation. Our shounen was DB, and our heram was Tenchi. At that time, the West was only on the verge of being exposed to anime. Now with a HUGE audience for anime and new long running shounens coming out its not surprising to see kids liking Naruto. Was DB flawed? Yes, but it was cool and set the action/fights that many shounens today copy.

Look for an interview with Shounen Jump issue 6 I believe and you'll find an explaination for the lack of Ninja style outfits. I found it earlier but Shinji took the site offline for maintenance while I was googling for it and I can't be fussed to go looking for it again.

[edit]

Found the quote.

Shounen Jump
This may be an American misconception, but when I think of "ninja" I think of figures wearing completely black outfits, usually with masks. But the ninjas in Naruto look completely unlinke this old stereotype. How did you come up with the interesting "Konoha Style" of the ninjas in Naruto?

Masashi Kishimoto
If I created a world that recycles the traditional concept of a ninja it would have ended up just like all the other ninja manga. I wanted to create a ninja world with a twist, something fresh, so I completely threw out the preconceived notions of what a ninja should be like. Besides, Naruto is a blond-haired ninja wearing yellow clothing, who is supposed to be part of a secret intelligence gathering organization. There's no way that a ninja who stands out that much would really exist. (laughs)

1) you have to think of it from a marketable stand point, would the main character be more
noticed/recognized in his get up now or in a pure black outfit.
2) the creator had strong ties to DBZ, so you can't really say anythin about what the creator wants to do.


but I do understand what you're saying, from a realistic stand point it's retarded for a ninja to be wearing a bright orange jump suit. but alas this is not real life and an anime.
this is what they call " reading too much into it "

...Rage....

Anywho... I watched DBZ as a little lad, and Naruto is still much better. For one thing characters don't just POOF back from the dead in every other episode...

Though, it is true. It does make sense for Naruto to have a jumpsuit according to his character... But whatabout Sakura? The pink hair is the perfect target for a snipper... :p
