I'll choose one of his "facts" right now:
Now, he wrote as if Sasuke resurrected Orochimaru for no apparent reason. However, in the manga, it was revealed that Sasuke brought back Orochimaru because Orochimaru has the knowledge or ability to bring him to the source of information that will reveal to him everything that has transpired in respect of his village and his clan. He wants to find out what exactly happened and from there, makes his own decision on what actions would be appropriate. He may choose to side with the village, or he may not, it may all depends on what exactly happened in the past - who betrayed who?Quote:
What the OP wrote is far from being 'facts'. He assumed that Sasuke brought back Oro for the heck of it, and in the process of doing so, he ignored the entire plot.
It is exactly as I've said. He ignored the whole plot and then complain that there is no plot. I'll crush nonsense like these everytime I see one.

what you were attacking him with, and all your own 'backstory' links are merely hypothetical and at best circumstantial (though this is hardly the case), definitely never expressed in canon. relative to his factual observations, your posts are tenuous at best, and additionally your wanton aggression towards his post is just unwarranted and unnecessary.
you should really stop interrupting discussions with your unwarranted insults. such behaviour is reminiscent of aggressive teenage defiance, and is uncalled for in this place (or at least that's what i think)
you love kishi and worship sasuke, we get that from your avatar. everyone's still entitled to freely discuss anything, whether they support or criticise kishi's work.
please just stop your whiny complaints on how the posts aren't following 'what I wanted', and stop with the insults and mud-slings, and pay due credit to genuine insights (whatever stance they may be) on the manga. please just look at your constitution's first amendment
oversimplification and/or spot omission may be the case in this original post, but it held enough sense to trigger a nice discussion we have going there among the people. we need more posts like this.

i'd still hold my stance though, albeit not as adamantly, specifically regarding the portrayal of the protagonist 'geniuses'.
in general they are still illustrated as being lazy and unmotivated. anyone who is smart + has motivation to keep training/expanding his power = antagonistic
so to rephrase my previous conclusion, kishi seems to have an obsessive hate for hardworking ambitious smart people
Precisely which part of the conversation that I've quoted is not canon?Quote:
"People who abadoned their comrades are worst the trash"?
Or was it "Kakashi had to choose between completing the mission and saving his friends"?
If you are observant enough you would have realised by now that I strictly drive my criticisms towards people who complain for the sake of complaining. People who base their arguments on thoughtful reasonings and solid manga materials have nothing to fear.
If you criticize fairly then you do not have anything to fear.Quote:
Criticisms are always subject to other criticisms. It's fairly hypocritical of you to promote 'free speech' when you are essentially trying to stop me from criticizing the criticisms of other posters.Quote:
We need more thoughtful posts, not bitter rants that are constructed out of ommissions and ignorance.Quote:

as m3j said, if you can't debate amiably, just ignore and move along.
let's not let this get any more personal than it has, and move back to discussions of the facts and appropriate presentations (where due) of hypotheses.

hoever, this establishment of much of the manga's villains as arising from such similar rivalries does give the impression that they more or less come from the same mould. kishi's attempt at drawing historical parallels has the basic effect of creating two persons (historical or not), where one is famous and renowned for his gifted strength while the other is the master of endurance.
and this basically still boils down to two basic moulds: the high achiever vs the under achiever. this is why i have those conclusions about how kishi hates high achievers/geniuses
your reasoning does imbue upon this circumstance some justification, but the observations are still funny nonetheless, and i think the OP did well in pointing it out in criticism and in jest
someone should make a flow chart! hahaha
Everyone has his or her own personality, just because you ignored them doesn't mean they are not there.
Again, you are simply ignoring every single detail to arrive at an oversimplified (and bad) conclusion.

I think he's trying to say that you're just looking at one thing when you should be looking at more, like the race of people, age, etc. Instead of looking at genders, look at other stuff too. I agree, the OP was too simple without any thoughts behind the actions. That's like saying right now that Naruto wants to get strong just so he can get respect. That's far too simplified. Naruto wants to get strong so he can protect the ones he loves and holds dear, among other reasons.
Naruto isn't DBZ, it's more complex and deep. Or it was, before Part II. What the OP failed to do was look at the reasons, the motivations, for what the villains did and instead looked at what they did on top, without diving into the subject. And I guess in doing that, the result was that he made them look bad or childish.
Unlike DBZ, most Naruto villains aren't motivated by power or desire to rule the world or anything. Their motivation comes from what they've experienced or what they want. Orochimaru isn't necessarily looking for power as much as he is looking to know every single jutsu there ever was, whether found or yet to be found.

Aside from point 8, everywhere is this line.. if thats the case, then Tobi aka Uchiha Obito <if he is indeed Obito which seems to be that way> is not created in this way. Kakashi was supposed to be a "young taented ninja", hell, even Gai beat Obito and whatnot, and he seems clumsy like Naruto is.. was for Obito. It doesn't fit at all this criteria - probably its the first time a "genius" is not made into villain at all but we see a guy really resembling at some point Naruto, character wise. Neji, Gaara <both 'villain mode'>, Sasuke, Tobi aka Obito, Nagato, most of them where hailed at some point as progeny or were called geniuses <yes, thats right, even Gaara! > You also forgot there were guys <usually guys> that were not given any back story <if you don't read databooks that is> and seems to be bad.. just because. Kakuzu was bounty murderer who killed mostly for money, Hidan was religious murderer who killed for his religion or because his religion was supposed to be like that, or even Zabuza or Kisame who were raised to be a murderous shinobi to begin with because their village was like that back then.Originally Posted by Minishin
