YMMV: Naruto The Abridged Series

  • Base Breaker: NTAM, or Naruto The Abridged Movie. No two reactions will be the same, not everyone thinks it's actually serious or a case of Vegeta being a Troll, the comment section is a complete war zone, and the quality has been argued as the lowest the series has ever sunk. Doesn't help that LK's version came out first, provoking comparisons all over the place.
    • The new voices from NTAS 31 onward. If you've watched Shippuden Abridged by CanadianJutsu, you'll probably become fans of these episodes. If you haven't, then you'll probably hate them.
  • Broken Base: Over Masako's returning to the series with Faulerro. Reception was somewhat mixed. Especially by Vegeta's girlfriend, who attacked Masako on Twitter over his returning.
  • Ear Worm: "I fought the log and the... log won, I fought the log and the... log won!"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Took advantage of Iruka being one in the anime and got him into a running rivalry with Kakashi.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The creators in-show arguments become bitter when you realize one of the reasons MasakoX quit.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: All of episode 28. This is where Sasuke (voiced by MasakoX) ends his friendship with Naruto and Sakura (both of whom are voiced by Vegeta) and leaves. Like the "Funny Aneurysm" Moment above, it's very bitter when taking the creators into account.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Ho Yay: With Jiraiya and Orochimaru, surprisingly.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Son of a bitch! GYAAAAAAAAAH!!!"
  • Tear Jerker: Masako's announcement that he will be leaving the series.
  • Yoko Oh No: Vegeta's girlfriend Serstoic is shaping up to be this, if only for being responsible for Naruto the Abridged Movie's... less than satisfactory editing.
