* Naruto is a popular series and due to that there is a lot of hate for it. It has happened before, Dragonball Z is a good example. But that is not to say Naruto doesn't have its flaws. But it will always be a very special anime/manga for me, probably because it really drew me to anime and manga. When I first heard of the series on Toonami, I hated the idea of the series. But I decided to give it a try and thank god that I did(with the added bonus of killing what little social life I had) The first scene that I watched was Iruka's speech for Naruto and I was hooked after the gallons of tears I shed(none even remotely manly) The thing that made me love this series was the pure emotion it could pull. And Kishi is able to get tears when he wants it, rest in peace Jirayia. As the series evolved so did the characters, Naruto is a great example. When we first met Naruto, he was a stupid, bratty, weak kid to the now(chapter 642) Naruto has changed to a quick-witted, kind and ungodly powerful leader. One of the things that I love of this series is the battle tactics and how unpredictable it is. Seriously, raise your hands that you saw Tobi as the main villain or that we would feel [[spoiler:sorry for the NINE-TAILED FOX, or that its a tsundere]]. Admittedly the series does have problems with some plot points, but you have to give Kishi some slack, as he has to think of the details, how it works with the overall story and draw the damn thing every week.

* Naruto is the reason that I got into anime and manga in the first place. The Shonen-appropriate dark themes such as abandonment, loneliness/isolation, and simply being a crazy freak of nature (Orochimaru, for example) clicked with me and led me to pursue horror and seinen titles like Berserk and Gantz. My tastes have matured beyond the typical "friendship always wins!" shonen that Naruto could be interpreted as, but that doesn't stop me from loving it. I love it for its flaws, its characters, the sheer possibilities that could happen in the universe. It isn't a coincidence that FF.net has thousands upon thousands of works for Naruto, not to mention the crossovers. To deny how much of an impact this series had on my personal growth as a person (since it was with me from middle school to college) and my taste in manga and anime would be to delete a very large aspect of who I am. I will never feel ashamed for liking Naruto, just like no one should ever feel ashamed for citing Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, or even Samurai Pizza Cats as their starting point for anime.

* I've seen most of the big-name animes out there and ''{{Naruto}}'' is by far my favorite. I agree 100% with the above troper who said that never before has there been such a lovable main character. ''{{Naruto}}'' has a way with perfectly crafting scenes that evoke such intense emotion that no other show I've watched period has achieved, in my opinion. I was a sobbing mess for literally the entirety of the Confronting the Jinchuriki arc, and even just ''thinking'' about the scene in which Naruto meets a certain someone brought tears to my eyes for weeks afterward. And whenever Naruto flashes that adorable smile with his eyes closed my heart just melts. I only discovered the show a few months ago so I didn't grow up with it like some other viewers, but even so it already has a special place in my heart. I desperately want to know how it ends, but I know I will also be very sad once it does.

* Naruto will always be the first proper anime/manga I got into, and I will love it forever for that. It's made me laugh and cry, and it's just been such a huge part of my life. I'll love it forever and ever <3

* ''Naruto'' is hilarious, not just because of funny moments, but the ever-so-controversial Kishimoto exploits those who take a Shonen too seriously while we sit back and enjoy the complex story and awesome action and unique twists per chapter, that is, if you actually pay attention. So while people fight over a manga, I'll let Kishimoto justify his controversies with post-revelation justification, something he is very good at doing in my opinion. This show's biggest flaws is it's masses of fanboys who act like this show's super-realistic, but other than that, go check it out! It has the most solid story of any manga I have ever seen and I will never die without seeing it through too the end.

* This show holds the title for my favorite anime of all time. It basically introduced me to anime in the first place. I remember being very stereotyped against it before i got into it. I remember seeing commercials for it and thinking "WTF is this? People breathing fire? Why are there a dozen Naruto's? Why is that guy with the mask (Kakashi) walking on that tree? Stupid..." Then i actually saw it and was immediately hooked. This show has the best plot development and character development i've seen in an anime. Characters are not static, and i like the fact that the villains progress with the heros, and it's not just the villain of the week. Don't know about the excessive {{Deus Ex Machina}} thats been going on lately, but i still think that Kishi knows what he's doing. Not to mention that he doesn't go overboard on buffing everyone out like {{Bleach}} or {{Dragon Ball Z}} or basically any anime out there. I hold this series in very high regard. But most of all, this series has spawned perhaps the most epic fictional character in all of history....ITACHI.
