    I downloaded all 117 episodes, assuming it had to be good because everyone was so uppity over it, and WTF, I just finished episode 9. Not liking it too much -

    1. Naruto is fucking stupid. He gets mad over really dumb things. I find it hard to get into the show when the main character doesn't shut up about anything.

    2. Flashbacks! What the hell! Do they not think anyone pays attention? They even throw in flashbacks for stupid things that nobody even NEEDS to remember just for the hell of it.

    3. Too much damn talking during battles! Nobody that's locked in a heated battle is going to keep taking fucking 5 minute breaks to compliment their opponents technique EVERY TIME ANYTHING HAPPENS AT ALL. Most boring battle sequences I've ever seen. "OMG! TEH MORKSOEUKCMSD-NO GATU TECHNIQUE!!! GASP! OMG! WELL DONE! OMG! HE MUST REALLY BE TEH NINJ0R?!" *focus on shocked expressions for 2 perfectly good minutes of my life I'll never get back*

    Seriously, I've seen animes do these things A LOT before... in moderation. But this just overdoes every single damn thing. Is there even a point in me continuing? Does it get any better?

    It gets a lot better actually. It starts off slow at first but progresses pretty fast after the Chuunin exams (those were pretty good episodes also).

    Somewhere between 25-70. I can't remember. It's been over a year since I saw them.

    Actually it lasts a pretty damn long time if I remember correctly. Past 70 I think.

    Once it gets to the Chuunin exams, you go through 10+ episodes a day.

    FMA was pretty in-depth.. Too bad the ending pissed me the hell off. Guess the movie will finally end it. and Yes Cowboy Bebop was a fucking masterpiece. Still one of the best endings in anime.

    I think the movie has absolutly nothing to do with the series. So I won't show us anything about the brothers that happens after the last episode.

    ROCK LEE VS. GARRA is the best fight in the series so far, its fucking awsome. Also when Sasuke fights with umm the snake guy. Also the best fight is coming up Sasuke vs Naruto

    the series is good from eps 3 to about 55, then it starts dropping downhill from there, imo.

    The thing I like about Naruto is the development of each character... Every character has their own background unlike DBZ really where they are just trying to defend earth from some super-power alien in each saga.. In Naruto, each character has their own jutsu... DBZ = some fireball power and they can move fast...
