    Default Droppin' Like Flies

    Is it me, or are Naruto characters dropping like flies?!? Half the Akatsuki's dead and then all the others from the leaf!!! Im getting anxious to find which of our beloved characters is going to die next!!! What do you think of the nin-slaughter, does it add to or take away form the story? Are we comming up short on characters? Is there any particular deceased character you think should not have died?

    It adds greatly to the story, and it gives it a maturity and depth that other long running shounen series (glares at Bleach) do not have. It also shows that Kishimoto has the balls to kill off characters (glares at Kubo Tite).

    So far, Kishimoto has killed off:
     

    The 4th
    The 3rd (Sarutobi)
    Kimimaro
    Sasori
    Sarutobi Azuma
    Hidan
    Kakuzu
    Deidara
    Jiraiya
    Uchiha Itachi
    Kakashi

    Out of whom, only 4 had major impact on the overall progession of the story.

    I honestly don't care if the characters are killed off, because the characters of Naruto are the weakest part of the series, and only a few really stand out as being well handled and developed(notably Jiraiya, Kakashi, and Sasuke), 2 of whom are now dead. It is Kishimoto's story-writing ability that has always put life into it, not his weak and underdeveloped characters. The irony of this, is that half of the retarded Naruto fans watch it because of the characters, which I find absolutely mindboggling. It's like they view it as some shoujo/drama series, rather than the action/adventure series that it is.

    I'm not going to try and predict who will die next, because you just can't tell. I mean, I didn't see
     
    Jiraiya
    dying until it actually happened, or
     
    Kakashi
    dying until until a few chapters beforehand. Akatsuki on the otherhand, with the exception of a few members (Pain, Madara, Itachi) were all pawns anyway and as characters themselves, were not important enough to have their individual characteristics effect the story. They were all replacable. It was also obvious since their introduction that they'd all end up defeated or dead anyway.

    And, no, I think it's good that the characters who died did die. It adds more to the story, and promises development of the other characters in the story, something which has been significantly lacking. Naruto in particular will hopefully undergo a decent change because of this; two of his three mentors are dead(the third being Iruka).

    Characters must die. Not dying would make a story bland, no?

     
    Jiraiya
    and
     
    Kakashi
    were somewhat forshadowed. J always mentioned Akatsuki being risky buisness.

    I completely agree with all that you said.
    It's a great thing in the story. I mean, it makes you feel emotion, no?
    It does for me. And without that, it would probably bore me quite quickly, I must say. -_-

    If Kashimoto didn't kill them off, the story would become repetitive. Hero battles villain. Hero wins. Both live.


    Boring.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!
