3 Gripes You Have With Naruto?
I thought it was time to also criticize my favs at times so I made one of these for 4 of my fav manga that have their own sections on the base, check them out
the 3 biggest gripes I have with Naruto
1. The power scaling: the power scaling in Naruto at this point is extremely poor, in part one the epitome of strength was the Hiruzen v Orochimaru fight but by now we have had regular jounins with much more impressive attacks and skills. There are many examples like Madara wiping the floor with the entire alliance and the Hokage and after that powered up twice (including the Bijuu) and than he nearly got his ass kicked by Gai. By now some of the once uber tiers like Jiraiya, Minato, Orochimaru, Nagato, Itachi have by now been reduced to fodder compared to what are now top tiers.
2. The war arc: yes for me all that happened these 3 (or whatever) years is basically one big arc. I like quite a few parts of the arc but there are many gripes I have with it: Edo Tensei ppl we saw before and that were even killed before, the ever changing final villain, Obito and Rin, Kaguya who randomly came into the story like a rabbit out of a hat, Kabuto's flashback, KinGin, …
3. The inconsistencies and forgotten elements: while small plot-holes like Madara using Susanoo without eyes do not bother me (though I do think it affects the quality) there are some I really do mind, one of the bigger inconsistencies is the hard-work theme or the before mentioned power scale inconsistency, also the overuse of the (when introduced) very rare and ''powerful'' Sharingan and at this point even Rinnegan, the forgotten ninja element ... Also the way too many side-characters that are too often simply forgotten.
