@Canondorf: That and Humongous Mecha in general will generally be on a bigger scale since they are using giant robots.

Reading the Naruto thread in the Arlong Park forums, the off-topic posting (much more extreme than here) and Hate Dumb hurt so much that I came running back here. Why are discussions here (in general, not just about Naruto) so much better than discussions there? Do large forums have a higher proportion of idiots?

It might just be that tropers are better people than the rest of the world. I've never really had a lasting issue on any of these forums.

Moldova, never change.
I think it's we spend more time studying a work rather ripping on how bad it is.

The fact that we a smaller community here in this forum than Arlong Park has is certainly a contributing factor. Heck, these threads in particular have a sort of near Continuity Lockout thing going on, what with the way there's never a 'part 2' thread or a new thread for the chapter.

And of course, the fact that most tropers tend to at least try to see above the rest of the fandom is most circumstances.

nah, there's a fair amount of ripping. See: Bleach. It's just that here, we generally agree on what to rip on, or disagree in a friendly way.

I like this thread. It's the first one that I have followed for more than a few days. We may bitch and moan sometimes but I don't really see any really bad hatedom here.
Insert witty one-liner here.

I could never participate in a hatedom. I lack hatred.
I didn't say Hatedom. I said Hate Dumb. Like one guy in the AP forum thread complaining about how Kabuto's zombies didn't include Kimimaro, which clearly means that Kishi has forgotten about Kimimaro's existence.

After watching recent episodes of the anime I've noticed something: Anime!Sasuke is a lot more tolerable. It's amazing a fews shots of him looking unsure or conflicted or interacting with Taka without acting like a prick does for his likability.
"Canada Day is over, and now begins the endless dark of the Canada Night."
^I noticed that too. He seems a little nicer in the anime.
Just a teapot
Yeah, but the Anime hasn't gotten to the parts where he really goes crazy. But I do agree, he is a lot less of a dick in the anime.

The more I see the new ending, the more I feel like its going to be a severe case of Mood Whiplash as the anime gets later into this arc. Especially when we get to this scene.

By the way, I love how the omakes constantly lampshades characters that are Put on a Bus.

My personal theory about why this place is a nice place to be is because Tropers are, by their nature, interested in the mechanics of a story, rather than how hawt the guyz and galz are.

Hmm... Mebbe, in addition to animating Kishimoto's story, they are actively trying to enhance it. Like an actor trying to make a good play out of a badly written script. I dunno.

^^ Lookin massively cool there, Hinata-chan! You'll always be my favourite! Also, best theme in the series by a long shot:

Jesus as in Revelations
I've been watching the Naruto anime. The remake of "Itatchi's past". It's really impressive, how different it all feels once you know the truth. But still, Itatchi engages in some silly Fauxlosophical Tirades... But he's clearly a conflicted guy.

As for the opening... it really is Harsher in Hindsight. Itatchi's such a Tragic Hero...

I'll go cry a little over there...

^ It made me a little sad to. Some think it was just an ass pull but I reread the manga and it did seem to hint at the truth a little. I kinda knew something like that was going to happen because Sasuke kills him and goes back to a happy life in the Village was just to easy.

More than Ass Pull, I think it's Characterization Marches On.

I think the whole Itachi thing would've been something Kishi had planned for a while. Probably not at the beginning of his creation, but definitely once the Naruto X Sasuke fight took place.

I think that the next few chapters are going to be very interesting (And memeable)

News flash from Jump, brought to you by yours truly from the Mahou Sensei Negima thread:

''To our readers,

The Internet is now overflowing with illegal copies of manga. All of these illegal copies run counter to the wishes of mangaka. They also ignore the wishes of the creator as to how the manga should be read.

It may be done without much thought, but in reality it hurts the mangaka who pour their creative talents into these works, and it is also against the law.

When we discover such illegal copies, we discuss possible measures with the mangaka concerned and try to tackle the problem, but there are so many heartless people around that it is just impossible for us to tackle them all.

This is a plea to our readers. Illicit copies of manga harm manga culture, infringe the rights of mangaka, and most importantly of all they deeply wound the souls of mangaka. Please also understand that it is illegal.

From now on Shueisha will, in collaboration with mangaka, deal more harshly with any illegal copies circulating on the Internet.

We hope we can count on the unchanging support of all our readers in this endeavour.

I think I finally understand what Madara was doing with the whole Kisame and Zetsu thing.

Basically, while Madara's Just Between You and Me wasn't solely for the advancement of his plan, he was aware of the possible consequences and found a way to work them to his advantage. I'm not sure if that makes him Dangerously Genre Savvy or simply not Genre Blind.
