Reviews Comments: Just... inexplicably disappointing. Naruto The Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show whole series review by Arcane Azmadi

I really don't know what went wrong with this series. Yugioh The Abridged Series is just so hilariously funny -the comic timing is fantastic, the absurdist humour is side-splitting, the satire is dead on- that it's hard to believe the same guy did this thing. Naruto The Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show has some good moments, but in general it doesn't even begin to compare with its predecessor. While there are some good jokes, too much of the humour is random, forced, repetative and relies FAR too much on Refuge In Vulgarity to really be funny. Seriously, a lot of this stuff is just off-colour and unamusing (especially the rape jokes- the bit where Zabuza forced Gato to give him a blowjob was nauseating) and the Running Gags (Naruto smoking, Kakashi not being David Bowie, Sasuke being emo) are repeated ad nauseum regardless of whether they were funny in the first place. And despite Little Kuriboh generally being amazingly talented at voices, his perpetual hyperactive chain-smoker voice for Naruto is more irritating than amusing. The tropes page calls it Denser And Wackier but it just isn't as good and it's really hard to see why. Little Kuriboh is an incredible comedic talent -Yugioh Abridged proves that- so one can only assume he was trying something completely different that simply didn't work.

So you want a clone YGOTAS. Also why are looking for Oscar winning comedy in internet parodies?

If "being genuinely funny, clever and well written" is being "a clone of YGOTAS", then yes I do want that. And I think you'd be an idiot not to.

It's really all in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I find Yugioh Abridged to be rather stale and the jokes tend to fall flat, yet I find this spoof very entertaining. Also, I think LK said something about making Yugioh Abridged to entertain others, while he makes the Naruto spoof more to entertain himself. Just some food for thought.

This is not a parody of Naruto but of Naruto the abridged series (a parody of a parody). It's also based on another type of abridge comedy (example Purple Eyes WTF). He already made YGOTAS and there's already a NTAS, so it might had been too much of the same.

"his perpetual hyperactive chain-smoker voice for Naruto is more irritating than amusing."

...Wasn't that the point? The satire is there, you're just missing it.
