Naruto has its good points where the fights are fought with using tactics, its realism, and great character developments.
Its bad points is how the main character acts, his naivety, and sometimes the story's over the top dramas. Not only that, Sometimes it can be unoriginal, as the case with zombies. Also, I will add the plotholes Kishi likes to make a lot of times.
There you have it, but even then I still enjoy it because apparently, in terms of long-run development, it does very well.
As for my post, I disagreed with M3J because he was clearly judging the war too quick. I mean, come on, who ever heard of an arc being judged just by its first 5 chapters??
Please do not call each other or anyone else "fanboys". Drop the subject or else I will delete any off-topic posts afterwards.
Okay, I agree, I was judging the war too quickly, but early stages can show how the war might turn out. Kankurou vs. Sasori fight was horrible, though Kakashi vs. Zabuza is looking to be interesting.
I confess i find FT much more sexy than most of the hentais out there...
FT do is quite sexy,but i never found a liking in the art.People often compare it to OP's art,but frankly speaking,i think FT's art is worse.(Not that OP has bad art.)
and i heard that the story is even more bland.I think i read 3 or 4 volumes,but i didn't really get attached to it.
- i find it impolite when people bash the quality of scans of a scanlation group. i mean, they all doing it voluntary and for free, why can't people just be grateful?
- Bashing characters is not okay in my book. Bashing characters in a long writing people label 'essay' or 'academic writing' is even more disgusting.

And please do not say that Kishimoto is lazy if you haven't any specific evidence. It's easy but unfair to judge someone without knowing the background.
Semi-related: I don't understand the complaints about ONE PIECE's art. What I like about it is that it's fun and has a unique style that's different from any other manga. (Yes, I'm aware of Fairy Tail but I see them as being completely different.)
What I like about Shiki (the manga) was its harsh use of contrast, and I think the creepy atmosphere got lost when it became an anime. :/ Perhaps.
Well, if I had to say why I don't find OP's art interesting, I'd say it's because Oda sometimes draws too many things at once. Therefore, it sometimes get hard to see what's happening in the picture. Another thing is, Oda's toning feels a bit darker compared to most mainstream manga. Although it is a plus since it kinda breaks the norm.
You made a valid point Newkerzy, and I really like that. I don't mind if a person doesn't like something but to simply say it's "not good" when art is subjective and has no best/worst is something I'm :/ about.
As for Shiki, I thought the anime do has a creepy atmosphere and did a great job delivering that. Do you watch it?
this and the fresh,varied and dynamic art of part 1,the current art style seems half-assed,or more like lazy.Don't get me wrong,i still love the art in Naruto,especially when i see pages like this,but it could be sooo much better.
I nearly agree about everything,but Bakuman.The art in the beginning was great.It was fitting the rather serious tone of the manga and the manga they were drawing.So the drawings were rather realistic (DN-style).Then,Ashirogi Muto made a gag-manga,thus the art style changed into a more light-hearted and silly one.So when the gag-manga ended,i expected another art change,but it stayed the same,more like,it became rather weird.It does not look like Obata at all,and i don't mean it in a good way.On 2ch they are even speculating that Obata quit drawing the manga and that Ohba is drawing it now.And judging by the storyboards they show in each volume,it seems to be true.
Well, even Dragon Ball was still better in art IMO. And it was an adventure comedy type with lots of fighting, too. But then again Oda seriously can't compare to the godfather of modern shonen manga, so it's kind of an unfair comparison.
Hey in my book, NOT reading hentai counts as a confessionable thingy,not the other way around . But if you want, i can 'confess' more about this, even giving out the list of my beloved hentais... .Originally Posted by Googlez
@Googlez again...don't you even dare say THE INOUE wouldn't know how to draw fittingly FOR ANY MANGA, let alone OP.I know i've voted for Nehei, (eh...the guy who drew blame!...don't know if i got the name right)...but when it comes to coming up with a fitting style, no one can compare to the versatility of inoue.
