That has got to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. There is no character development, no reason as to why he has to protect her, just that he has to do it or suffers for all eternity. He has no idea who they are and has no apparent skills of how to protect her. No reason as to why he was chosen of all people to protect them, etc etc.


That is why there is continuation's and not just one episode. Or let me put it into terms you'd understand: Naruto did not know Rasengan, did not know he had the Kyuubi inside him, did not know he'd be in a squad with Sakura and Sasuke. You see it takes more than one episode. You can't get everything from a breif description, can you?


If Naruto is anything it's overrated. But guess what, it is absolutely average. Some overrated stuff is just dreadful(Elfen Lied, Trinity Blood, RahXephon, One Piece). Naruto has goofy boring fillers. These shows ARE goofy boring fillers. Count your blessings.

BTW I started in what Naruto fans all acknowledge as the dreaded "filler" arcs, and I find it just tolerable to the ever present goofiness in Rorouni Kenshin. If they ever get to fight in this show, it is supposed to be like DBZ, and that only makes a shounen better.

Naruto is so popular because of Narutards like the ones in this thread who said it rules.
Now look at my avatar......do you see the symbolism? That's what I think of Naruto.

oh my god... don't post such pics like that

Naruto is popular because it's on TV, which is where most kids start their anime'ing on, and the huge majority of them are ignorant/oblivious to the better ones, and as they watch on, they become more addicted into it and it turns them into narutard when they copy their favourite characters and act like them.

it's also because most kids are easily entertained.

Okay. I read this entire thread and I gotta say its pretty pathetic. I have been hearing that people like Naruto because its overadvertised and I've heard that Naruto has character development. Thats all Bullshit. Naruto is only advertised because it already had a large fanbase. That is because everyone reads Shounen Jump and in Japan the Shounen Sunday. They read about Naruto and then they heard about the anime and got excited. That is why its advertised. The anime fad nowadays is shounen like mech was about 15 years ago. Also, Naruto's plot is horrible. Not average. Not decent. Just plain horrible. Mushroom Jay already pointed out the plot of Naruto. Character development? Naruto has only developed himself physically. Other than that, he is the same dumb kid he has always been. Just because someone says they are maturing doesn't mean they actually are. I have also heard some bad examples of overrated anime. Elfen Lied was yes overrated, but better than Naruto. Trinity Blood is not overrated because people ONLY say its decent. One Piece IS overrated and horrible. Rahxephon, well the person that said this was overrated saw episode 10 and assumed that he understood that plot. Rahxephon IS indeed a masterpiece and I know its not as good as Evangelion, but it is by no means overrated. Rahxephon and Evas plots aren't even close to being similar, but everyone that hangs on EVAS balls for so long just watches one episode and thinks that its the same. Back to the topic. Naruto sucks because the plot is horrible and the script writing is even worse. "My way of the ninja" is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Believe it.
Outside of Naruto's plot is the rivalry between Naruto and Sasuke. Too bad that Sasuke is one cocky ass dickhole for the beginning of the series who assumes that Naruto is weak. That left Naruto time for him to catch up. I've seen better rivalries is Hikaru No Go. How about the fact that there is more people that like the secondary characters over the main characters. How about the fact that people hate Sakura. If you hate the man characters that means that the writers did a poor job creating him/her. If you like the secondary characters, that is pathetic. That means you will like a character that will ultimately be a loser or someone that barely matters.

LoL....Well I know bleach is a popular anime..but I dont think this region can show a lot of blood to the younger generation...as you know with naruto they really edited the amierican version as well and that took on better? Idk. I mean you have something that can appeal to a good majority of people and be shown without too much worry of being all bloody? Beats me. I mean look at pokemon and Yu-gi-oh ... it took on really well to elementary school kids and what not. -_- I think. To me everything is trends...all come and go.
