    Default Naruto has become more of a superhero manga than ninja themed show.. thoughts?

    Well i remember when the first time i watched Naruto, what i loved about it was the fights and anticipated battles, u never knew what ninja technique the ninja will use to fight and how the ninjas anticipate the next move of their opponents....
    But now, its hardly the "naruto" we know. Sharingan is hardly ever get used to anticipate moves or to copy the opponents move, instead it has become more of a laser beam shooting mangekyou. kunais and shurikens (ninja's basic tools) are hardly used anymore, everyone just uses thier one special power repeatedly. Kakashi was once called the copy ninja, with 1000+ jutsus copied, i thought we would get to see more of that but after the battle against zabuza he hardly showed any other jutsu other than Raikiri and Kamui...
    I have kinda lost interest Naruto, but still watch it for the plot... What are your thoughts ppl?

    My thoughts are about the same. But you still see kunais flying around especially in the fillers episodes.

    Also Kabuto uses Kunai to control the reanimated bodies.... Aside from that... Since the war is going on basically nearly every ninja you've seen up till now will be thrown in. Its not that weird they want to show the characters with their distinctive ninjutsu's or else you might not recognize them.

    I also lost 70% of my interest. But the urge to know the plot keeps me going.

    *Minor spoilers

    It is and always has been a battle manga/shonen. In the case of most long running battle manga in Jump, the power levels of the characters at some point will reach the point of absurdity. They start to become victims of their own success in the sense that, "Where the heck can we go from here?" sets in. After enough arcs, trump cards and power ups, the protagonist has to reach some near god-like ability (to point now where even the previously unthinkable power of the Kyuubi seems insufficient) level that can only be put up against an equally, stupid powerful enemy (I'm lookin' at you Hashirama) where they're pretty much just throwing planets at each other.

    I'd just try to accept the series for what it is now or else try to find a more grounded and historical type series if you crave the less superpower feel. Peacemaker Kurogane, Ninja Scroll, Basilisk, Nabari no Ou all come to mind. They're shorter but satisfying.

    Yeah exactly. These shows at least have the feels of basic ninjas still lurking till the end. In the matters of Naruto, the only ninja like thing are the head bands and the way the run. -_-

    I quit caring about Naruto some point after the chunnin exams.


    But didn't the whole ninja theme go out the window when they gave naruto an orange jumpsuit? I'm not trying to troll but Naruto never really took me in because of the whole ninja thing. It was more about watching an underdog become badass that took me in.

    Whether it's ninja themed or not I still like the plot. It's getting more interesting because it's gonna end soon I think.

    Yeah. It's always the same jutsu they use and sometimes it's gets long.
    Yet I still like the plot and ending the show half way won't be better then finishing all of it.

    Sorry, but I don't think it ever was "ninja" themed. They called themselves Ninja, but really the Naruto "Ninja" are a disgrace to any and all ninja...

    。They wear BRIGHT crack as* colors
    。They're loud
    。They announce who and what they are
    。They have Large, obnoxious "justu"

    No Ninja in their right mind would do/be any of this. Tbh, I think Naruto would have been better off being Battling Magicians all round then "Ninja."
