** They also cut out the Sannin fight with Clucky the giant chicken. They tend to cut out stuff they don't have anything funny to say about; personally, I thought both scenes were pretty funny. And they HAVE made the occasional jab at the yaoi prevalent in the series and in the fandom, like the aforementioned drawing special or shower scene. Really, they don't need to make all those "SasGAY, get it?" or "Orochimaru's a PEDO!" jokes, because they've already been made a thousand times before; and they're not going to ham up the yaoi for the most part, because that's not their style of humor. It's like I said, they'll mention it, but they're not gonna focus on it. It's not really SelectiveSquick, its more along the lines of taste differences.

*** Not an excuse. There are plenty of men who are mature about it even if they don't enjoy it themselves, it's the insecure ones who get SelectiveSquick over it.

*** Especially MasakoX. Dude (currently) does Goku, Gohan, and Roshi. Given the fact he was also the one putting together the videos for N:TAS (Vegeta3986 comments something to the effect that things looked crappy in the casting decision video because he put it together), it's understandable if his time is divided... Especially since he's not exactly paid for his time (yet, though it'll probably change now that they have merchandise).

*** MasakoX has stated he's gotten an editing job here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANvapoS1Kdc (go to 5:43) so it would make sense for him not to work on a two-person project where he primarily does the editing.

* [[Tropers/PigCatapult This LGBTQ troper]] likes most of Naruto Abridged, but the authors' apparent attitude towards male homosexuality makes her uncomfortable at times. They gave Haku a [[ShesAManInJApan gender lift]] (and were rather mocking/in-your-face about it; "Oh, and by the way, I'm actually a girl."), for one. This Troper respects the decision to make a "No Yaoi/Yuri" rule for the fanart contest (although they could have been a little less ''obvious'' about their [[YuriFanboy double-standard]]). But you know that WHOLE action-filled exchange that ends with Sasuke getting his curse seal? You know, that big, ''plot-important'' part? The one with [[MemeticMolester Orochimaru]] in it? The one that incidentally has a lot of HoYay? They didn't just gloss that over, they cut the ''entire sequence out'' and replaced it with about ten seconds of ''scribbles'' while Naruto Motormouthed a synopsis. The fact that Sasuke got bit was added as if it was an ''afterthought'', instead of it being the huge event that effects the rest of the main plot from here on out. And yes, I mean ''effects''. If Sasuke hadn't been bitten by Orochimaru, Sasuke wouldn't run off with him, there would be no Rescue Sasuke arc, they'd have to come up with a different reason to have a two-year timeskip, Sai wouldn't join the team, Naruto wouldn't be still chaising after Sasuke's Missing-nin ass (because he ''never left''), Orochimaru would have taken [[spoiler:Kimimarou's(?)]] body instead, and Team 7 in general would probably not have matured the way they did over aforementioned timeskip. This troper would have felt better if they had hammed up the entire sequence (because mocking is what abridged series ''do'') and made jokes at its expense (once again, because that's what an Abridges series ''does''), instead of just ''leaving it out''.

** While RuleOfFunny might have something to do with it (something hugely plot relevent happening practically off screen? You haven't heard of Virginia Woolf's 'To the Lighthouse' - several major characters are killed off in ''brackets'' over a few pages), I'd have to agree. A little. But would you have been as offended had they abridged the scene and made loads of Rapist!Orochimaru jokes? I personally hate that whole fanon, so I'd prefer they cut it over even ''more'' Orochimaru jokes. But that Haku thing was just poorly done, and it wasn't even funny... That same sentiment appeared in the fanart special, especially the DoubleStandard concerning Yuri.

** You do realize that the fact the Haku is a girl wasn't just them flipping genders. In the original Japanese version, Haku WAS a girl. It was changed in america because they believed that the first major villian should be a guy. All they're doing by making Haku a girl is referencing the original.

*** Complaining about Haku's gender is pointless. the fans honestly have their own opnions overwiether Haku lied to Naruto or not, and this isn't helped that Haku comes back in recent chapters with female lips and lipstick, so changing Haku to female? Its old hat.

* Why, oh for the love of ninjutsu, why, did they decide to cut out the ENTIRETY of the Sannin fight, instead having a "OMG LOOK OUT! CLUCKY LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!" DeusExMachina end to the arc? This isn't even the worst part, though, since as if to add insult to injury, they then spend two of the worst episods yet depicting the FILLER ARC. This seems like a slap in the face so hardcore, it has officially broken any faith I had in this series being better than "Look! Cheap laughs AND HITLER! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!"

** Not to mention that LittleKuriboh's version are only done in April Fools Day and are pretty much he just throwing lots and lots of jokes, changing close to everything to make it more funny (Naruto smoking, David Bowe, Itachi being refereed as "Sasuke's brother" even by himself and Sasuke) instead of making fun of the errors, quirks, plot, etc. of the show (ince Masako and Vegeta already do that) plus I still don't know what MermaidMelody is but I still laughed.

Added DiffLines:

*** LittleKuriboh's series is actually a parody of Masako and Vegeta's (Note the "Fan-based parody of a fan-based parody" line in it's disclaimer). A good ninety percent of it is playful jabs at how their series went and the rest is in-jokes and obnoxiousness, which is why you're not likely to find it funny if you take it straight-faced. And I, personally, would also like to know how people got to think Naruto: The Abridged Series was funny.
