I can recommend a few titles for you.

Gangsta. - Anime adaptation coming very soon, really bad ass manga highly recommend.

Deathnote - Crime Psychological Thriller, one of the best manga to date.

Terra Formars - Anime adaptation coming next split, really bad ass as well, pretty violent but for mature audiences.

Soul Eater - The manga is sooooooo much better than the anime it is not even funny. It also gets rather dark towards the end.

Blood Lad - Otaku vampire, has a lot of comedy, action with a good plot.

Food Wars! - A newer title, really neat idea I'd check it out.

D-Frag! - If you ever watched Haganai, this shit is almost like it, really funny really no plot just awesome.

Sankarea - Romance Comedy/Harem where a boy has a zombie fetish and has to take care of a zombie that he sort of created.


All really good titles, don't really know what you're into but I listed quite a bit so check them out. I guarantee that you'll enjoy most of these. Get back to me

So I think their natural reaction after being constantly under attack is to immediately counter attack at the first sign of any criticism.


^ That is a rather good point.

The biggest problem I encounter though (being a Naruto fan from the start) is just the 13-15 year olds that don't have a clue. Naruto isn't the best thing out there and most of them refuse to accept that. All they see is a character they think is cool, doing shit that they think is cool and therefor it's the best thing there is. Just re-watch Naruto on here and read the comments... It makes one shudder. I don't mean to say that the entire age group is a bunch of closed minded idiots... Just that the majority of closed minded idiots come from that age group. Most of us have been there and I think it's a fair thing to say. (for the record, I was a full on Narutard that wore headbands to school and cosplayed on spirit week.. Oh the horror)

I absolutely love the show and I have shed many tears watching my favorite characters grow and blossom while other favorites die. I've left the show numerous times from the plot seeming like it goes no-where or because the filler was too horrible to endure. But the plot (and I will get a lot of flack for this) is much better than most say. The problem is that you have to watch the whole damn show to see the plot, it mostly just looks like people are off doing random crap till a village gets attacked XD. That being said, I agree with the majority on the ending. It just hasn't lived up to my expectations but I'll still watch it if only because I've been watching this kid yell and kick and scream for 12 years and it would seem silly to not finish it out.

Targeted audiences for naruto:
those that need not understand the existence of consequences for any decision they make, especially not death nor conclusions;
those that prefer not to think/comprehend any details not spoon fed to them;
and for laughs, those that fantasize about transforming into a small league of nude ninjas through which they'd best serve our nation via payed sexual favors.

Lmao

No Comprehension + No Perspective of Consequence = Aggressive Audience
Who doesn't want to look like this on impulse?

Well the majority that i've encountered all act like the one that i quoted in my OP.

It's just strange because when Naruto first hit the states here in Cali i don't remember it being this bad. it's when Shippuden came along that is REALLy became bad. both the show and the fanbase.


Shonen is a style targeted toward younger kids, who are generally amped up on all the action going on (and 30 cans of monster) so it's really not surprising that popular shonen shows draw a crowd of very crazy kids who don't really know why they're angry.

It just has to deal with casual anime fans that latch onto a series that they follow for a long time, and refuse to acknowledge any criticisms of their favorite series. Even when you trap them with logic and well thought out arguments, they will circle back around and do little more than insult you for being an idiot for not "getting it" or whatever, and claim Kishimoto's newest bowel movement made into a chapter is actually a stirring masterpiece of drama or something.

Personally, I don't know if this has anything to do with genre, either. There are plenty of really good Shonen titles out there... Naruto USED to be one of these really good Shonen series. Man, my history with this series... So many memories... It was the first manga I ever got into, really. Then the bad writing started to happen, and I have become so angry at the series that I only continue to read this out of obligation since it is so close to the end... Kishimoto deserves a prize for being the best at wrecking their own work.

A lot of Naruto fans grew up with the series. Anyone who grew up with a show or something will always defend it.

I think One Piece fans (the ones that say One Piece is an anime/manga god) are the most retarded ones, even above the SAO and AOT fanboys

It's not only One Piece fans that think that way about One Piece.

just about every top shonen has fans like that, if one Piece is more evident it's because of it's much, MUCH,larger fan-base.

also if it's anything to add, despite One Piece's much larger fanbase i've encountered more of that HIGH RADICAL PRAISE from Naruto and DBZ fans than any other anime/manga fanbase.
