I actually LIKE Naruto... that's right. I said it.


I liked Naruto when it first came out. In the Leaf village and not dreadfully dark..then they started the endless road trips. . . .

I don't know at which point in my life | got fed up with it, but I simply can't stand Dragon Ball type anime where everyone turns into an ultimate being just to be beaten by some ultimater evil being, leveling up and beating it just to get beaten by some other even more ultimate being and at the end of the day no one ever dies, and if they die they come back even more powerful just to get beaten again an so continues the endless loop. I guess that's why I stopped watching Bleach and even one piece.

I like anime where people fight and someone dies never to come back but those are few and far between unfortunately.

Pretty this.

I grew out of the Dragon Ball type shows a long time ago.

I don't mind fighting in my manga/anime, but the story needs to be about more than simply moving from one fight to the next.

Yeah definitely, out of the "big three" Naruto is really the only one that accomplishes it... sort of... Edo Tensei seemed to big a problem.

Anyways, it is irritating seeing no one die or sort of "off-screen progress". As much as I enjoy Fairy Tail, it's a big culprit which does get irritating in the long run. Not many more recent action anime that have offered much death that didn't end up being total flops.

I can totally understand why someone would get tired of the shonen genre, but at least they´re way better than all the magical school ecchi harem shows. Those shows are the true cancer of the anime industry and I´m completely tired of them
Definitely.

I don't really see a problem with them and I'm not sure why you'd call it a genre if there's only so few of them. Like what someone else said before me, the real problem is with all the ecchi and harems out there talk about over-saturation. >.<

Well it doesnt really matter if we all get sick and tired of that genre... its all about the money man.

I actually like Naruto ...minus the filler

as long as the writing is still good and the character design appealing

Tired of endless battle shonens? It's not like anyone's forcing you to watch it, so no. There's far too much other shit to be complaining about in anime imo

I don't dislike the genre. But I do also get annoyed with repetition. That's why I could only stomach about 120 episodes of One Piece. Luffy's battles were just.....ugh. Bleach was kind of the same way, but I did manage to slog through it.

Naruto on the other hand I actually did enjoy quite a bit. The only reason I dislike that title is filler.

Yu Yu Hakusho I loved. Hunter x Hunter I loved. Dragon Ball... I think I loved...it's hard to say now because it was so deeply ingrained in my childhood at this point that I don't have a very objective opinion anymore.

I love fighting anime. I like it when someone has to train to get stronger or learn a new technique to win. I like DBZ, Bleach ,Naruto ,Fairy Tail, Hunter x Hunter and now One Punch Man I really couldn't get into One Piece though not sure why.

I really love Baki The Grappler and Gangsta. The more martial arts that is in the fighting anime the more I will like it.


Battle high school anime.. eh I watch it if the action is good enough


I need martial arts/fighting anime in my life and those shows are a little slow right now

I don't have a prob with this genre, some of them can be entertaining and philosophical.

hate the idols/singing stuff though

I enjoy some shows of the genre like One Piece, Hunter X Hunter, and One Punch Man. But I only enjoy Naruto for nostalgic reasons. But shounen are just the surface of a wide variety of anime.
