    Why I think the manga has gone down hill.

    A few reasons why I think this manga has become less entertaining:


    - It lacks the mystery it used to have.

    I spent my days thinking about who the man under the mask could be, what the akatsuki where planning and why itachi killed his clan..
    Now there is nothing mysterious about this manga, nor is it thought provoking.

    - Unproved hype.

    Kakashi the copycat ninja - who copied over 1000 techniques... You'd expect kishi would at least show these techniques when he fights different people, not only would make it the fight scenes better and so much more entertaining, it would make kakashi so much more badass, yeah he has shown a few techniques but f**k the guy has over 1000 to pick from and he uses the same ones time and time again.

    Hiruzen the god of Shinobi - supposedly has mastered every Justus in the leaf village and yet kishi still makes him do a shuriken shadow clone technique against the strongest character in the Naruto universe.. I mean wtf.. (I hope kishi doesn't troll him and he gets a chance to prove himself)

    And last but not least...

    - The OPness.

    If you don't have: ms, ems, reningan, senju blood, sage power, teleporting techniques, unique power (gara, onoki etc) or the power of a tailed beast.. You might as well just sit the f**k down grab some popcorn, watch the show and accept the fodderness that kishi and his team have turned you into.

    The way I see it, you're either fodder or OP.
    Taijustu is useless now.
    Hand seals are all most non-existent now.

    It just feels like the whole Ninja-ness has been taken away.

    But with all that said, I'll still continue to watch/read it.

    Anyways that's just my thoughts, what do you guys reckon?

    Re: Why I think the manga has gone down hill.

    It lacking mystery is understandable since the series is nearing it's end.

    Hype is mostly just exaggeration, you're fault for taking it all literally.

    K11 just did something relevant, no one has the right to complain about OP anything for a while.

    Why the hell would there be more plot twists at this point?

    Edit: I thought about it, and if he did it right, Kishi could fit a plot twist or two.

    To make it interesting?

    The potential for fighting hasn't been exploited by kishi at all, so I think he should at least make some interesting plot twists.

    Re: Why I think the manga has gone down hill.

    Honestly that is how this type of manga needs to end. All the mysteries being explained it is amazing right now. I started reading naruto over last week and i am on chapter 330 now honestly chapters 600-651 are some of the most amazing chapters

    In a cage. As you observed.
    You actually care what I have
    to say?
     

    Re: Why I think the manga has gone down hill.

    If there were any mystery at this point it'd only be because Kishi is trying to force it.

    In Japanese culture it's very common to give someone a nickname like Copy Ninja and just exaggeration in general.

    And on the Opness: So? What interest would there be in a bunch of nobodies getting screen time? That's not interesting, it's time wasting.

    Just go with the flow . Back then we knew nothing compared to now. Make theories don't get mad at details like screen time, power etc. It's fictional a lot of people tend to forget that. If you do this I guarantee you'll enjoy the manga and anime better

    Re: Why I think the manga has gone down hill.

    Yeah.. It feels like dbz in naruto style, power ups each episode and we know that power ups won't end soon. No appreciable tactics in fights..
    As you said, the ninja-ness is gone. u_u

    Re: Why I think the manga has gone down hill.

    I agree whole-heartedly about it losing its ninja-ness. way back in volume 1 it was acceptable to remain hidden with a cloth that looked like a fence or w/e surroundings were there. Now its like "Hi guise... rasengan/raikiri/insert excessively show-offy jutsu here___!"

    I miss it, though zetsu did provide the necessary ninja status throughout the story.

    Also people getting annihilated, awesome. Then Kishi proceeds to dunk on any attempt to drive the plot or add dramatic effect by bringing the vast majority of people back -_-

    valid point. I agree

    There is a grain of truth in every myth. Kakashi has shown what? two dozen jutsus? That's not enough for anyone to start spreading the rumor he had a thousand. Especially, since many seem to have that many techs as Kakashi does
    God of Shinobi was a title the Third earned via feats. He hasn't shown why he earned that title. That title should belong to the Third Raikage or Onooki.

    He has the right to speak his mind. Anyone from Harvard Professors to convicted criminals has the right to speak thier mind. Just because you disagree with him doesn't mean he should be silent."I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."--Voltaire. Moreover, the reason you gave was a poor one. the K11 (10 - Sakura + Sai) were given a power-up by naruto. They were made temporarily OP. They were given the power of a tailed beast
