I like Naruto overall but I started enjoying it a lot less towards the end. I feel like Kishimoto's writing might've gone downhill so I'm not sure whether or not to be excited for this new manga. If this new sci-fi manga ever gets an anime adaptation (which I wouldn't be surprised if it did) then I'll definitely give the anime a shot.

Even though I hate Naruto I love sci-fi so I'll guess I'll read it, but going in with low expectations. xD

Well said, Lithium077
I find myself straining to find any interesting conversations or debates online about certain Anime- especially Naruto. Its nice to be passionate but if those that find themselves caught up in thread after thread about the same topic where the comments can be easily condensed and/or translated to "yes it is!" vs "no it isn't" they are just kicking a dead horse and should jolt themselves out of it by kicking themselves instead. Passion gets twisted into shallow nitpicking in arguments such as these and it brings out the worst in people. Don't get me wrong, I think its healthy to show anger but in these arguments that have had many incarnations and where every (most) sides have valid points there will never be any other resolution except to agree to disagree and then once healthy anger ends up becoming resentment which is like cancer to the soul.
This would not bother me so much if these arguments didn't take over so many otherwise interesting subjects or comment sections and ruin them. But regurgitation of well trodden arguments is not just for those who never grew up (when I say that I do NOT mean that people should lose their child-like wonder and views which I think is essential) its for those who are still young!
Im from generation X (parents were hippies then yuppies) my generations children are called generation Y and they make up a lot of those online these days who have to complain on every social media forum to complain globally any time there feelings get hurt a little or they don't get their way- like a temper tantrum! Ive heard from a few people that the "Y" represents words that sound like it- mostly GENERATION WHINE! lol! you know its true if you are a part of that generation! So much potential and creativity yet the whining!! Rise above it when you can!

I don't think his writing style went down hill. I think it just went on a bit longer than it should have and with Shonen the longer it runs the larger scale the battles tend to get. But Ninja battles in their nature are meant to be quick, quiet, and not flashy. So the contrast of the natural progress of shonen and the theme of the show caused some of it to start to go in a bit of an odd direction. That and keeping the series going without dragging out one villain who won't freaking die (Example Aizen from Bleach) can be hard to do while keeping the villains and their relation to the plot interesting.

So a lot of what I feel went a bit wrong with Naruto later on is mostly related to it getting extended further than it should have been as well as pressure to make big scale shonen battles and losing the Stealth element that defines Ninja.


After all judging by the pilot there weren't originally meant to be 10 different tailed beasts and Sasuke was only put into the series to start with because of pressure to add such a character and those probably aren't the only examples of fan and boss pressure causing things to be added or shifted.

This.
It was only magnified by reading the manga and dealing with Kishimoto's mediocre art and choreography.
I was perfectly fine with watching it for the action but to avoid spoilers from my friends i had to pick up the manga, now i no longer care.

As for his Sci-fi manga i have an open mind i still like the first series of Naruto but Shippuden verged down the wrong path.
He seems to be optimistic about this at least but if he loses interest and ends it suddenly i'm gonna have to swear off Kishimoto after that point.

This.


He should take some writing lessons from Togashi without the laziness and terrible art.
Kishimoto's cluttered undetailed art is bad enough already.
