Goodnight, you duffy Australian knighit!
goodnight, our hero
I've been listening to only stuff from early highschool and don't even try to stop me
fav opening by a long shot
btw imagine if kishi actually decided to end the series soon after kage summit going straight into the obito vs kakashi and vote2 and skipping all the war stuff.
If I ever rewatch the whole thing that's how I'll do it
stakes are too low
nobody cared about low stakes when the objective was literally to build a bridge for a town in the middle of nowhere
the reason naruto was great wasn't the big stuff like saving the world, fighting aliens or starting world wars
it was personal stories and the experience of being a ninja with emphasis on what that experience means to every individual character
Literally all arcs in part 1 are personal stories.
Haku and Zabuza - Are Ninja tools or not? Can they be human as well? How does corruption affect the ordinary folk?
Chunin Exams - Characters take the next step to their respective goals (Hokage/killing Itachi) while Oro is trying to get revenge on Konoha, also Gara's kill or be killed ideology
Tsunade arc - Tsunade's personal traumas and the need to tackle the loss of Hiruzen that hit everyone in the village hard
Sasuke retreival arc - Sasuke gets consumed by his frustration and need for vengeance and the genin have to rescue him. Literal children trying to save another kid from doing something stupid
It wasn't until halfway through Part 2 that we got all the "save the world and find peace" stuff
What did War Arc give? "Muhaha I'll destroy the world and take all chakra for myself cuz I'm an evil alien from outer space"
Get lost. Literally the only highlights of the arc were again more personal stories like Obito vs Kakashi, Madara and Hashirama as well as Itachi and Sasuke.
Low scale, intimate, deeply personal issues fueling the conflict >>>>>>>>>>> "I'm an evil alien prepare to die"
the memories I have with this ending man
VotE2 should've had MS Sasuke vs SM Naruto. It's absolutely baffling how we never got the two to clash blades in the whole series. All they did was spam jutsu at each other and fist fight.
Getting rid of Sasuke's sword was stupid.
Still a 10/10 fight tho
the writer does but only few has ability to execute it
kishi forced ten tails bs for some 200 chaps after pulling it right from his ass creating multiple plot holes
also he trashed good characters by reincarnating them as edo and have them defeated by crappy chars
connecting kakashi with obito was even more of bad idea as with devoloping obito as villian was okay but he needed to develop already established kakashi in relation to it
alway remember tenten killed one of kakuzu's mask
