Re: Shippuden is a disgrace to naruto (long read)
The characters are at such a point where "ambushing" doesn't happen. Everybody can sense other ninja. It comes down to power mostly. And you mention lack of strategy but you for get about EVERY fight shikamaru has been in. There was strategy with Sasuke vs Itachi, Pein vs Jairya, Pein vs Naruto, Kakashi vs Kakuzu, Kakashi vs the 7 swordsmen, any fight with Obito, etc.

We know obito was the one who controlled her so that doesn't add up. Kishi is always changing the strongest hokage like it was the third then fourth and now first. The timeline doesn't add up with the databooks which kishi wrote might I add.[/QUOTE]
You're making the assumption that the blood mist village only existed because of obito. It was obviously there before him and might have been there after. The first hokage was ALWAYS referred to as the overall strongest hokage. The second was gifted with time-space, water and forbidden jutsu. The third was the most knowledgeable. The fourth was the fastest and gifted with sealing techniques. The fifth is physically strongest and a world renown medical ninja.
[/QUOTE]3 the story doesnt have a ninja like feel. It usually makes me think i'm watching dbz or reading dbz. The key elements that make up a ninja are gone. Its not about strategy its abOut whoever has senju dna, sharingan, rinnegan, or who is a perfect jinchurriki. Remember when team 11 wasn't behind naruto in terms of power. For the majority of the series it was like that. Now they're weak and useless....like raditz. All jokes aside in shippuden team 11 character development was disregarded and only naruto, choji, and sasuke got powerful. Sakura kinda did but she lost her resolve somewhere. Another thing that irks me is how the five kage were stated to be powerful and in previous fight it was amazing seeing them wreck faces but against madara raikage wasn't too helpful and mei was good in the beginning but kishi forgot about those two and focused on onoki and tsunade. It seems silly to make someone appear so powerful yet make them look like fodder against the most powerful character. I'll finish with my next point.[/QUOTE]
Did you really just say it doesn't have a ninja like feel? For Christ's sake the main character wears bright orange.
[/QUOTE]4: kishi rushed through the end of shippuden. No kakashi 1000 jutsus, no end to the kages fight, no word from team 11 (which im just gonna start calling them team raditz). I mean naruto didn't feel rushed but shippuden towards the end was rushed. Major fights were left out.[/QUOTE]
1) How do you know this is the end? You don't know. 2) I'm assuming you've followed naruto long enough to know that the manga is pretty much a story board for the show. If he drew every action that was going to be animated that's less incentive to watch.
