Old Nov 10th, 2007, 11:54 AM        Why is Naruto so popular?


Can someone explain to me why this horseshit is rapidly approaching DBZ territory and why I find that its biggest fans are well into their twenties?

I have no idea.

I admit that I once read a pair of Naruto comic books to get out of watching Eragon, and they were way more interesting than I expected them to be.

And extremely violent, wheras the Cartoon Network version is ridiculously censored and stuffed with filler episodes that make the series go on forever.

You sound like one of those otakus, except less uptight about it.

I just figured it's the trendy, lengthy anime of the times, like Inuyasha and DBZ. Except with faux-ninja tactics and goofdy headbands you an buy at Hot Topic.

The fact that the protagonist wears an orange jumpsuit despite training to be a ninja was enough for me to want nothing to do with it. The show is loaded to the brim with poorly designed characters and ugly art.

I figured nerds like it because they always go into technical outlines of every character's ninja powers.

I've never seen Naruto, but holy shit DBZ sucks. And I say that as someone who actually likes some anime. But what the fuck. There is no story. Its just a bunch of lame characters endlessly fighting each other. I've literally seen a simple fight between 2 wierdos go on for over a weeks worth of episodes. And why on earth does everyone float through the air at all times? It reminds of the anime version of when a bunch of dorks play D&D and the dungeon master has no self-control and makes everyone demi-gods within a week.

Naruto sounds like a lesbian and most of the fans are in fact lesbians. And if the fan is male they're turned on by the scruffly lesbian voice and is waiting for some fucked up, shuriken throwin', drop kickin' hentai.

I don't really know much about anime so I looked up "Naruto" on Wikipedia and found this

Wouldn't it have been easier to just claim that you put "faggot" in the Naruto wiki rather than to actually change it and then take a picture?

I was mildly amused by regular old Dragonball.
Dragonball Z is so lame that all things lame are judged on a scale based off of Dragonball Z.

I can use the narrator to sum up each DBZ series...

Dragon Ball: Laid-back cheery announcer who seems very informative about each episode. Fun to listen to, fun to watch.

Dragon Ball Z: Borderline-nutzo MONSTER TRUCK ANNOUNCER who speaks loud, proud, and chock full of repetition and shitty puns.

Dragon Ball GT: Don't even get me started on that. He's still monster truck, but he's gay now. And even the japanese hate him.

Every "DBZ with Modifier" cartoon is instantly popular. Naruto, DBZ with underage Ninjas. One Piece, DBZ with pirates. Inu Yasha, DBZ for girls. Bleach, DBZ for faggots.

That said Naruto isn't THAT bad. It's retarded, but it's that fun sort of retarded. I've only seen the dub, though.
