Slight profanity ahead, not for the slightly squimish. A slight rant ahead, not for the slight-rant haters.
I am getting a wee-bit upset, no, p*ssed at not only my friends’ Naruto-fanboyism but Narutards in general. Why you ask? Because most of them are annoying, obnoxious, and irritating, making the only good Naruto fans look bad. Not to mention they constantly b*tch about an English dub they constantly compare to the Japanese subs that they watched on, you guessed it, YouTube. They think they’re oh-so-cool that they have access to the Japanese version of an anime. Well guess what freaks, I GOT FRIKKEN’ ACCESS TO THEM TOO. Most of the public do. They just need the brain campacity to work a BitTorrent or IRC client. Or maybe, just maybe, they buy the UNCUT DVDs (THAT’S RIGHT! UNCUT OMFG that is liek so amazing) instead of pirating the show from YouTube, which isn’t all that amazing unless it’s uncommon to search “Naruto episode english subbed sasuke and naruto secks”. That’s the last thing you could brag about.
First of all, the English Naruto dub isn’t all that bad. It’s actually not a bad dub period.
Naruto’s voice is annoying!!!
Naruto’s an annoying character, so why not have an annoying voice?
“Believe it!” is annoying!
“Dattebayo” is twice as annoying when you actually understand the damn language you weaboo.
dey cut out naruto and sasuke kissing!!!111 (fangirl dialect)
That scene was unneeded and disturbing in the first place. It still happened in the English dub, but we didn’t need to see it. I don’t care what you SasuNaru (or whatever portmanteau this pairing uses) fangirls think of me, most of you are fat and ugly shota fans that I can care less about. Yes, that’s an exaggeration, because I know most of you are hot.
4Kids shouldn’t have dubbed it!
4Kids never dubbed it sir-or-maddam-who-claims-to-be-a-Naruto-fan-but-doesn’t-even-bother-researching-its-English-dub-let-alone-pay-attention-to-the-damn-credits-that-has-that-giant-‘VIZ”-logo a.k.a retard.
it’s as bad as the one piece dub lawl. (A, what a suprise, YouTube comment)
You’re an idiot.
the best ninjas ever.
Ninja don’t wear bright orange jumpsuits and yell out their attacks in the open.
YOU GOT A DECENT TELEVISED DUB, STOP COMPLAINING.
And newsflash: Naruto wasn’t really all that amazing in the Japanese version either. Sure, the first arc sets upon an arguably awesome premise that wasted it’s potential a few episodes after. The first battles felt alot more ninja-like, in my opinion. I kept on watching it for what it was, but a long time after, slowly and slowly, I began to realize and said to myself: “Hey, Naruto seems to take alot of elements out of DBZ… it doesn’t really feel any different from all the other typical shounen anime out there.” There and then, that became my opinion of the show. And was I wrong? I don’t think so. It DOES seem to take alot of plot elements from DBZ and change them around a little bit.
Jiraiya = Muten Rôshi
Naruto/Sasuke rivalry = Son Goku/Vegeta rivalry (their relationship started bitter towards each other but then they started to warm up)
sasuke turns 2 teh dark side = An extended version of Majin Vegeta
Kyuubi = Super Saiyajin
Masashi Kishimoto even admitted that he was inspired by DBZ somewhat.
I also quit the anime quite deep within the filler sagas and tried out Shippūden but then dropped it when I realized it still wasn’t my cup of tea. I also quit the manga because honestly, the dragged-out story started to bore me after a long time of following it. I would’ve kept on reading the manga just for the artwork, but even that’s gotten bland since Kishimoto DOESN’T EVEN DRAW IT ANYMORE (really lost the bit of charm it had when he was drawing it). A series that has a potentially awesome world and a set of horribly ignored side characters, ruined by the
mangaka author with his horrible writing. Sure, it has pretty decent action, but there are tons of series out there with even better action. STOP SHOVING “NARUTO IS THE BESTEST ANIME” IN MY FACE!
Overall, Naruto has a pretty retarded fanbase (as if no one knows that already…). I hope all your Naruto episodes get deleted on YouTube. :/ Someone tell me when the story picks up and actually meets my standards. I just don’t enjoy it as much as I used to… For those who are still blogging Naruto, I respect you alot. I really do. You sit through some horribly-paced episodes, maybe even decent ones, and you never give up. Diligence. And to the Naruto fans that are actually diverse with their anime outside of the stuff on TV, Bleach, and Death Note (which I’ve found alot of Narutards to be familiar with for some reason…), I will forever love you.
The Naruto rant aside, on to watching anime on YouTube and YouTube in general.
Or, at least, for series you can easily get and if it’s for review purposes. It’s okay if you’re there to rewatch a certain series that are unlicensed, those of which you don’t want to bother downloading again (although that makes me question why you deleted them from your hardrive in the first place). Esspecially since most of the videos on there have such horrible quality. Actually, the only good quality video I’ve seen on YouTube is this:
But now, videos like that can never be uploaded on there ever again because YouTube made a clear point that “ALL UR 100MB VIDEOS R BELONG 2 US” . Seriously. there are much better sites out there, such as Stage6. YouTube still has alot of great videos though, but it’s just not there for people who want decent video quality. Or anime.
