Don't diss Naruto there friend
. Naruto deserves all the praise it gets. And certainly it's not "overrated".
If anything this show has brought entertainment to my mini computer room(which I sit at and enjoy anime in general along side other nice shows) week in and week out(excluding fillers of course which you can skip). I think even though it's not as "cool" as it once was it still has a decent story and character developments. It's still a very good show unlike shows like Bleach which have totally dropped the ball this year.
I may not agree on every decision the author makes in this show but that does not make it bad by a long shot. There is always something to look forward to(different explanations to different things) each week. Just because one does not agree with everything in it makes it bad. You want bad. Go and read bleach and keep Naruto alone.
One Piece of course deserves praise. Actually instead of becoming really unreadable and boring it really picks up at some point and really keeps one going.
actually,i think i have the right to diss anything i want,and if you dont like it then you can always STFU.
nah im just kiddin man xD
,naruto's good,i gotta give it that,but the storyline went down with the flush when Kishi fucked every character development opportunity for the Konoha 11,you have 11 characters,you could've used them,instead,you only created some new characters,who by all means have no actual past(Akatsuki,anyone?)
kishi twisted the whole ninja world thing into a war of darkness and light,now i would usually accept that storyline,but not this way,not by making your characters irrelevant,hell,even the main heroine (sakura) has no character development,she shined at the gaara rescue arc,and then she went back to her old,shameful self.
it is Overrated,believe me,go read at naruto forums or manga fox and see for yourself :3
the thing with one piece is the fact that the arcs always and i mean always start as being boring and then picks up,the only case where this wasnt the case was at Water 7,u had Usopp being assaulted, Luffy VS Usopp etc etc etc.
sorry Haystacks,forgot your post :\.
I'm used to hiatus's, my all time favorite is Inital D, which has like 80 episodes after 10 years. No filler stamp of approval It has 600+ chapters(car races take up more chapters per episode than anything I've seen) and is working on season(stage) 5 in the manga(considering stage 3 was an OVA). It only produces 2 books a year at it's pace, so a new season every 4-5 years.
the thing with HxH's Hiatuses is the fact that it has been over 8 years without even an OVA,HxH gets 1 volume per year\two years,this is really fucked up,but the story itself is awesome,i think Berserk has the same issue with hiatuses
