I thought its universally understood why a fair amount of people hate/dislike Naruto. Well I guess I can list a few possibles reasons as to why people hate/dislike it.

1) Its overrated
2) Tons of unlikable characters
3) Crazy amounts of fillers
4) More than half of the cast in Naruto are uninteresting
5) Episodes gets drag on too much
6) Last, but not least high amounts of episodes is a "turnoff" to some people

I for one don't watch the anime anymore, but instead I read the manga version because its faster pace.

Most anime start out really interesting, but deteriorates as its progresses or gets a 2nd seasons. For example, animes such as Code Geass R2, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 S2, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, and Macross Frontier. You be surprised at the amount of people who hate/dislike them.

I don't really hate Naruto, but I didn't like the massive amounts of filler. And I tend to steer away from anime that has episodes in the hundreds. I like to know the animes I watch have a pretty definite ending that wont take me five and a half years to get to.

I think people don't like it because they think it's an Anime for little children.
But I think Naruto isn't an Anime for little children.
Actually you learn a lot of things like what real friendship is,
that even an untalented person can be successful,that reality isn't always nice......
But I think people don't like Naruto because of the image that other countries give the Anime.
Example: The German Naruto really sucks! The translations are completely different,
everything is censored (no blood,no deaths - they just say that person x and person y are missing or left the country etc.)
People who hate Naruto could possibly hate it because they don't understand it ?
But I love it

Why you ask? I guess I can list some possible reasons as to why people hate/dislike CG R2.

1) Its Overrated
2) Character development is almost non-existence for most characters that isn't Lelouch/Suzaku/Rollo (sp?)
3) C.C. is handle very poorly
4) Overuse of "Ace up my sleeves"
5) 2nd season added too many new characters
6) Off screen character development for characters such as Nena is a big no-no
7) Pointless fanservice fillers
8) Plot is a massive "Trainwreck"

I don't particularly hate CG R2 myself, but I was pretty disappointed with how they handle CG R2 compare to how awesome the first CG was. Then again, Sunrise is the one to blame because Sunrise disapproved the creators original script for CG R2, so CG R2 could of been better.

Might as well put this out too while I'm at it. A lot of you people may find this surprising that Code Geass has taken more elements from various Gundam series over any other anime series.

Kallen = female version of Domon Kasshu
-Similar hairstyle
-Same red headband
-Hot-blooded
-Has a mecha that's able to do a palm crushing technique

Zero being similar to Char Aznble
-Wears a mask
-Has a younger sister
-Comes from a "high class" family
-Plots revenge against his royal family for ruining his life (similar to Char plotting revenge against the Zabi family for ruining his life)

Suzaku being similar to Kira Yamato
-Pilots a powerful general purpose type humanoid weapon
-Naive and a hypocrite
-Can't die no matter what (one has magically Geass BS and the other one is just plain plot armor)

-Charles' (CG) funeral speech for Clovis' death parallels Zabi's (MSG) funeral speech for Garma
-A certain fat pink mecha pilot by a emotionless loli is extremely similar to Virtue (00). *Note that CG R2 can out right after 00 S1
-First OP is similar to one of Destiny's OP (I can't remember if this one was right or not. you'll just have to check youtube for this)
-CG R2 had a lot of mecha doing pointless posing during battle just like S. Destiny

These are just a few similarities that came out on top of my head, there could be more ...

personally i never do overrated things... it just so happens i like some of them. Like Code Geass for instance, but its my personal opinion that both seasons of Code Geass is handled well.
Fan service? yes i do think that was unnecessary but other then that i think it was good
and about taking elements from Gundam, i do not watch it so i cannot compare the similarities but one thing for sure is that the plot is not a "train wreck"

Its just like you said everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Life would be very boring if everything is "white and black". Which is why other people find CG R2 a trainwreck, whereas you don't.
