    Best Arc

    "Best Arc"

    Dramatic, revealing, and a high-scale battle engulfed an entire village. Words cannot describe the complexity of the arc, but the threat Konoha faced in this arc, is probably topped only by Madara's rebellion back in the days.

    ~ Pain invasion arc ~







    Silver:
    ~ Chuunin Exam ~

    Bronze:
    ~ 4th Great Shinobi War ~

    Re: Best Arc

    Pain vs Konoha.
    It had the best fights, the best plot twists and the most shocking revelations ^^

    Re: Best Arc

    Pain vs Konoha
    For once we got to understand the struggles of the smaller countries and see the dark dealings Konoha had been in back in the day. It also marked the final moments of Ero-sennin (R.I.P). The entire atmosphere was a sad one, a redemptioned filled vibe if you will.

    Wow definitely gotta go with everyone else, Pain VS Konoha was absolutely incredible. Sage mode at its best and Konoha was reduced to rubble. Cant get any better than that. (unless shizune + plus a few others stayed dead)

    Techically Jiraiya vs Pain (and Itachi vs Sasuke) both count as the Itachi Pursuit/Capture Itachi arc, you could probably split them into "lesser" arcs like Rain Village arc and Uchiha (Brothers) arc. The Pain Invasion starts around chapter 403 after Tobi's explanation of the Uchiha and Itachi. I suppose this doesn't change your nomination though?

    Re: Best Arc

    The Immortals Arc I think was the best. The scenes with Kakashi fighting Hidan and Kakuzu had some of the best close combat action, and after Asuma's death Shikamaru lighting the cigarette

    Re: Best Arc

    Chuunin Exam
    Case it was clever,exciting and "normal". No sharingan prophecies,no rinnengans,no hate,no "this world need to be fixed" and etc. stuff,but it have alot(ALOT) of smart fights with Naruto and Sasuke(wich was still okay back then and didnt go emo to much)
    Best arc so far..totaly.

    Re: Best Arc

    Chuunin Exam.
    Basically for the same reason Shader nominated it. There wasn't this overkill with mass destruction techniques and no focus on single characters but all the rookies. Moreover it still has that much impact on the story. Introduction of Orochimaru, Gaara. Naruto winning against Neji. Third Hokage vs. Orochimaru + Second Hokage ET + First Hokage ET.
    And i just loved the ending, when konoha was on the edge of defeat and then begin to counterattack.

    Re: Best Arc

    My favourite Arc was Pain against Konoha.
    It really showcased the power of Rinnegan and Six Paths and also showed finally Naruto's growth as Shinobi and a man. Also it finally made Naruto the Hero of his Village.

    Re: Best Arc

    Pein vs Konoha, we saw how powerful Pein really was, we saw most important deaths ( like Kakashi ), lot of drama ( Hinata's sacrifice ) the imho strongest, hateful and badass villain in the Narutoverse ( Pein, as in God Realm, not Nagato ), and we saw, for once, a cool Naruto without dumb moments.
    And it was the aftermatch of 2 great mini-arcs, the one of Jiraiya and the Itachi/Sasuke one. Pein arc was the climax, and it didn't disappoint

    Pain Invasion...It's nice to see Konoha damaged and Naruto got something different than Rasengan.
    Sorry for grammar mistakes.
