I thought this anime needed a thread. I watched the series up to episode 135. I thought it was ok but I enjoyed the manga more. I just wanted to know if the rest of the series got better, worse, or stayed the same after episode 135.

135 was around the time Sasuke went over to Orochimaru side.Him and Naruto also just had their big battle.

Opening a thread about Naruto you could have elaborated a bit what the show is actually about.
There are people like me who have only a superficial overview.

I only started a new thread on a show many people know of. If you wanted an overview or description you should read a review. But in case you are too lazy to do that...a search on Google gave me this: http://www.animetique.com/animeview.asp?pID=40

I don't like Naruto, because not only it's the most overrated anime right now, but it's another filler-crazed series that seems to be like the Dragon Ball Z of the next generation and I do not want to pursue and waste my time watching every episode. Plus, they don't look like ninjas to me, since I'm used to the traditional ninja rather than a bunch of kids in gymclothes and hoodies that can fight. Also, it's fandom is just out of control. I don't want to start a flame war or anything but I'm just kinda annoyed by the fans posting Naruto AMVs on Youtube for every song that has ever existed, fanfics that seemed to rival that of the Sonic the Hedgehog fans, etc. My negative criticism goes ONLY towards the Narutards that say "ZOMG! NARUTO IZ TEH BEST ANIME EVAR!!!1!!1! Lawlerskates!" and don't watch any other anime, besides Naruto. I know that there is a good number of Naruto fans that don't act like this and that's fine. I'm sorry if I offended anyone for this comment but I just had to let it out from my system.....

including this.......

That pretty much sums up my opinion on Naruto.

I'm really pissed off about the manga, so I'm not bothering to watch the anime. I started collecting Naruto when I was 16, and I dislike totally how it has evolved to a sort of Dragon Ball thing where the only things that matter are how strong someone is, both in body and soul.

Maybe the Good-Evil-easy-plot caught me too old: Naruto is more a series for teens, the way I see it. Although, if it lasts this much, it's sort of possible that the ones who began their teenage with Naruto will finish that age without the series being completed.

So, if someone wants 35 tôbon of Naruto in Spanish, I'm willing to sell them... for a fair price :P

I figured as much. And you are right, Gojira, in that it is very over-hyped.

Even though I loved DBZ(I just do, go on and flame :mrgreen: ) I also think the "we just have to get stronger" approach is getting very old.

I really liked the manga but I have no idea what chapter I am on. I am really not sure if I want to start it again.

I guess I will probably stay away.

Naruto is not over rated in terms of its story. The only reason it took a turn for the worse was because the anime caught up with the manga and they had to stretch the fillers. Just skip after 135 and start watching Shippuden.

I know what Naruto is about, basically. I have fans of the Manga among my friends. I just think it's a nice idea when opening a thread about a certain Anime to tell in one's own words what it's about.

Isn't that a bit subjective? I mean, for all you know, your good anime is his bad anime...

Naruto Shippuden does look better. Anybody want to fill me in on the story from episode 135 to the end of the regular Naruto series?

Make sure to alert people that there will be spoilers in your post!

Nope, but I looked up what it's all about and it sounds like another DBZ to me. Except that DBZ was by far better than Naruto.

Actually I have seen the first season box as well as random episodes on TV. I quite liked the first season box, but I KNOW the story sucks, and that it also stretches across more than 100 episodes. I don't have time for that shit.
