    It really isn't. Seriously. There's nothing fancy or great about Naruto - it's the Anime equivalent of a soap opera. Lowest common denominator, on the same shelf with One Piece. Dragon Ball Z gets a pass because it's old-school, but when you go down to the basics, it's all the same uninspired shlock. It's highly-entertaining... when you're 12.

    Let me give you a quick run-down of every Naruto plotline ever:

    1. Naruto wants to become a Hokage (BELIEVE IT!)
    2. Naruto and his gang train real hard
    3. The leaf village is under attack! Naruto and his gang encounter a very powerful foe!
    4. They get their asses handed to them throughout several episodes - it's entirely possible that someone who's important in the hierarchy but for whom we don't really feel any connection at all dies.
    5. Naruto and his team are very bitter and sad, they train harder!
    6. Naruto and his gang beat their newly-found enemy.
    7. They become friends for some contrived reason.
    8. Naruto wants to become a Hokage (BELIEVE IT!)
    9. Naruto, his gang and new friends train real hard...

    Also applies to Dragon Ball Z - where "important person dies" insert "Krillin" and 9 out of 10 times you'll be right.

    I mean, I can't blame you for liking something - everybody has different tastes. I'm just saying it ain't special and as you watch more and more, your tastes will gradually become more refined.

    I used to love Dragon Ball, and to be fair, I still feel a fair bit of nostalgia towards it but last time I tried watching a few episodes I actually managed to fall asleep before the conclusion of a battle (which stretched over 3 episodes, I believe), not to mention that I realized that the anatomy of those characters suggests abnormally huge skulls.

    I mean, it's a classic, one of the first of its kind, and you don't really argue with classics... That said... :P

    To each his own. My heart will always be with the series, even if I'm physically incapable of watching it anymore without dozing off half-way through a story arc. :lol:

    I've noticed that you really have to be "into" one of these "suggish" Anime's to "appreciate" it - once you're out of the loop it starts looking all weird... :P Maybe that's why I can't catch on anymore - I just expect the pattern to repeat (it usually does, but hell, it's less exciting once I know it will :lol:).

    You made a thread that links me to a low quality video with stolen footage from an Unregistered Hypercam 2 with titles added on the default background and text of Windows Movie Maker XP of nothing other than Naruto?

    You couldnt even be assed to post the video here?

    Get out.

    I agree with @cherryw17.
    You guys act like never really watched the show.

    Naruto is far too different from Dragon Ball.

    Dragon Ball started as an anime with the main, and almost only goal of the show was it's humor
    The adventure of an innocent kid, exploring an unique and amazing world looking for the Dragon Balls.

    After Red Ribbon saga, people wanted more action, but that was never the intention of Akira Toryama.
    He created Picollo, Vegeta, Frieza and Cell just for the audience who wanted limitless action.

    Majin Buu saga was intended for getting back to Dragon Ball Origins.
    Akira created Goten to bring back the innocent kid who explores the the world looking for the Dragon Balls,
    a copy of Goku, but that time with his rival Trunks, his big brother Gohan, and Videl.
    The audience just wanted action, and we got a stupid vilan called Majin Buu.

    After years of just doing an anime that was just a competition to see who was stronger,
    and not doing what he always wanted, he decided to simply stop.


    Naruto is much different, it focus on the meaning of pain, hatred and forgiveness.
    Naruto have started simply as a kid who had a big dream, but nowaday he is the one who carry the will of his master,
    the will to stop this endless hatred cycle, and to create a definite peace for the world.

    It's not an anime to see who has the bigger power or who can release a bigger kamehameha from his hand,
    it's an anime about an ideal and a message to the audience.

    I like anime but I think Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and Dragonball are dreadful. They really are not to my tastes.
