Hands down one of my favorite Naruto A Us
. Despite his seemingly amazing ability to function while handicapped and his seal creation skill, Naruto is still a wonderfully flawed character. He's sometimes oblivious to the obvious, impulsive and incredibly loyal to those he cares about. Kakashi's asides add wonderful contrast to Naruto's POV, and Sasuke, while having a close friendship with Naruto, is still an arrogant prick at times. The writing is very solid, the changes well thought out and overall result is just plain FUN.
