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?
