What has happened to Naruto?

Sun Dec 13, 2009, 3:21 PM

If you do not want a rant about how the Naruto manga is going to hell in a handbasket, do not read anything further. For those of you that enjoy my rants...well, enjoy. :)

Remember when the Naruto manga used to be amazing? The character depths, the awesome jutsu, and the storyline were epically epic. That time is gone. It died halfway through the ItachiSasuke fight. Because in my mind Kishimoto actually died at that time and someone took over. That way I'm allowed to still hold some respect for the man.

But no. The plot, oh the plot! Or rather, the plotHOLES.

Reading Naruto now is like being an innocent, cute little horse that wanders through a field. Your leg gets stuck in a plothole and breaks and NO ONE can shoot you to put you out of your misery because there aren't any bullets left and so you're forced to jsut lay there and starve to death while the plot CONTINUES and other innocent victims get caught in OTHER plotholes and face the same fate. And to make matters worse there are GOPHERS in those plotholes, rabid gophers that bite you until you get rabies, start foaming at the mouth and then drown in your own mouth foam.

Really, I don't care if you want to applaud the Naruto manga for it's current turn of events--which I dislike and think is preposterous and so mary sue-ish that it's physically painful to read now--you CANNOT defend the plotholes! There are so many of them! And you can see that Kishimoto is writing from a chapter by chapter basis now, scrambling to add in random things to TRY and keep us interested but really, it just angers me. I know I'm a bit judgmental about this but it's because I loved the series so much and I hate seeing it take this turn.

I wish it would end quickly so that it can have some kind of closure as well as MAYBE a bit of redemption. But that involves Sasuke's death and since Kishimoto wants to marry him that will never happen.

Anyways...I know you all really didn't want to hear that and are now afraid that I will never update any of my Naruto fanfiction. That's not true, I'm just so so so so busy and so so so so uninspired at the moment. But I promise, one day it will get updated. One day...Oh I long for the day when I can write Naruto without feeling shame. T_T I am off to go watch Crows Zero again. Because it is a beautiful piece of cinematic artwork and will make me feel good.

So yes, one day I will update. I'm trying, I really am. Part of some of the chapters are written...

  • Mood: Shame
  • Listening to: Again and Again by 2PM
  • Watching: Crows Zero
  • Eating: a hamburger
  • Drinking: Mountain Dew

I agree with all of you. I think it got way out of hand after Sasuke killed Deidara. And when Madara entered the picture, I mean, C'mon Kishimoto's just dragging it out so he can earn money!

I'm a huge Sakura fan and there's no way I want har to die!

I'm just waiting for the final fight...And it's getting annoying
Yesterday I was talking to a friend and she told me that the manga issoon gonna reach 500 chapters. I replyed by saying that Kishimoto is draging the Manga out as much as he could because he earns good money for it. I'm not a Sakura fan at all but seriously I don't want to see her die. I agree with what you and the others said, hopefully it does get better.

If you were inspired, I would wonder how. I don't blame you for not updating and ranting about the horror that is the manga. If you ever update again, I will probably hug you and call you a saint. As someone above said, at least those poor horses are going to a Naruto-less world.

And if you like rants, there is one below.

I don't blame you. Seriously, I think someone would have noticed something about Danzo's arm by now. Seriously, they have all been dead for like eight years now. Not to mention that there has to be chakra or something running through the arm to power all of those Sharingan. Kakashi has trouble going to extended periods of time with one, and we are supposed to believe that the old fart can fight with dozens? Not cutting it for me.

And I am still trying to figure out when the manga was renamed "Sasuke" instead of "Naruto". It seems like everything that is happening now surrounds something with the Uchiha and indirectly, Sasuke.

As for Sakura... no. I am not a big Sakura fan and I don't hide that, but with the way Kishi is going it looks like he is going to kill her off since Sasuke is apparently indestructible. I don't like her, but I don't want her to die either. She could be one of the most kick ass characters if she would shape up and get over Sasuke and not confess her love to Naruto. (Seriously, I thought I read the panel wrong in that chapter.)

You know what I wanna see?
I mean, come on. The only person fighting for the last, whatever chaters, Is GOD DAMN SASUKE.
and why? why?
Why did kishimoto have to make Sakura do that?
Confessing a untrue love, do he want to make people hate her?
I, actually, like Sakura. She is not a bad person, merel human teen girl.
