    [Anime] Naruto worth watching or not ?

    I've really never gotten into Naruto, can someone give me a good reason to why it's worth watching ?

    If you are willing to wade through a 1/3 of the show being filler(non important random story), one of the most low-quality animation in its generation, and a general plot that could be summarized in less than a hundred episodes(its at 500+ right now), and the chosen one storyline, then yes.


    If you really want to get into naruto, read the manga. The show is weekly so it draws out everything as much as possible, and it is a huuuuuge waste of time to watch the anime at this point.

    If you want a ninja show, I recommend Basilisk.

    The anime is really good, I like it. A lot of the filler was really good too, people can hate, but there were some REALLY good filler arcs.

    If you give me some time to revisit my list, I'll make a list of the filler you can avoid if you really want to. But I'll leave in the really good filler.

    P.S: Don't listen to what Empire says, he's just an anime elitist.

    Alright thanks for giving your opinions, I guess I'll try watching or reading it, I've heard that it was a bad anime because they talked a lot, someone told me that they were in a war and all they did was talk.

    Lol "all they did was talk." I admit there's about 3-4 chapters where is just all talking, but that was after Tobi's identity was revealed. It had to do with the story.

    You have to understand that in the manga, what could take an episode to go through could take like 4-5 chapters (when they're speaking, laying down strats, and etc.) Don't worry, all of the dialogue is useful, and there's not TOO much of it.

    Anyways, I finished revisiting that list, here it is:

     
    Original Naruto:
    26 (pointless re-cap aired with 27)
    97
    101 (Was about what's under Kakashi's Mask, could watch if you want)
    142-215 (There were some cool fillers in here, but none of them really matter, you can skip them)

    I left in fillers that were short or that were very good, will do the same for Shippuden.

    Shippuden:
    90-112 (Filler Arc about the 3 Tails, kind of cool but not needed)
    170 and 171 (I have no idea why they thought putting 2 filler episodes in the middle of such an important and epic arc was a good idea)
    176-196
    223-241
    242 was filler, but it ties in with the upcoming canon episodes, and was pretty cool.
    257-260 (This is all of Naruto up until this point summarized in 4 episodes, watch it if you want)
    271 (Promotion for Road to Ninja, only watch it if you plan on watching the movie)
    281
    284 (Filler, but explained something about Sai that the manga left unexplained)
    285 (Filler expanding on Pakura and her past)
    286 and 287 (About how Tsunade and the Raikage first met)
    289
    303-305 (Filler, but about the Sound 4, kind of cool)
    306
    307 and 308 (Filler about Hayate)
    309 and 310
    311 (Prologue to Road to Ninja, would HIGHLY recommend you watch if you plan on watching the movie)
    312-317
    318 (About the past of the 8 tails and the previous Jinchuriki, kind of interesting)
    319 (About Sasori)
    320


    I would recommend the anime, I like it a lot more than the manga. (Even if I had to start reading the manga to avoid people spoiling shit for me). Keep in mind that original Naruto started in 2002, so it may look a little old.

    Yeah that is a problem. Flashbacks in the middle of pretty much every fight, bunch of talking about well....very obvious plot, the action in naruto is pretty confined to some lame action scenes spread out over a LONG length of time(the action is pretty slow itself).

    In your average 5-10 episode fight/battle(actually some of them go 10+), you'll have about 70% talking, 30% flashbacks, and 10% action. This action, is full of dashed line's, long lunges, and a billion other things that scream "just get it over with".

    Your average naruto fight last about an hour and ten minutes in length. For one person.

    ------------

    Lol scot, just because I don't like naruto does not make me an Elitist. Disliking a popular piece of entertainment shouldn't be so surprising to you.

    Dislike it due to the reasons stated above just like One Piece, a lot of filler, a lot of flashbacks in fight, very stretched out fighting.

    One Piece has better animation though.

    Watch from the beginning to be familiar with the story line.

    Eh......somewhat. One piece certainly puts up its animation in the key moments, but for the rest of the show its pretty "meh", especially in the start.

    Shippuden is the second half of naruto.



    Honestly I still reccommend you read it. Save yourself hundreds of hours.

    That wouldn't make any sense, you simply wouldn't understand shit. It's like skipping to an hour and 15 minutes into a movie, some stuff just won't make sense. Plus, a lot of people liked Part 1 more than Part 2. Some of my friends say their favorite arc is the last arc of original Naruto.

    You can still watch it, just stick to that list I made of episodes to avoid. xD The anime in general is just better IMO. Voice acting, color, animation. They explain a lot more, detail a lot more shit, add stuff in that make it feel way more immersive and make a lot more sense. Plus, there are some fillers that are REALLY good (I left them in there for you). Not many of them, but there are some that are. Reading it is still cool, and you'll still enjoy it, but I would recommend watching it. xD
