i can't wait until people read the manga for what it is, In the beginning naruto acted like he was serious about being a ninja, but he did not train like that, he was to busy trying to get people to acknowledge him.
The reason that naruto look stupid is because in order to be good at strategy you have to battle or train.
YES HE HAS DRIVE AND NEVER GIVES UP, but IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE FUNDAMENTALS DOWN THE ADVANCED STUFF WILL NEVER WORK RIGHT. which happened to naruto.
Ever ninja in this serious that people go crazy about had someone train them early in life to give them a head start before the academy. (THINK PEOPLE)
Kakashi -his dad
Neji- his dad
Sakura- her family
Sasuke- brother and father
Choji- his father
Orochimaru- father before he died
PLEASE GIVE ME SOMEONE THAT NATURALLY WAS A BAD ASS, AND DID NOT GET A HEAD START
WE ALL SAY NARUTO'S FATHER WAS THE 4TH, WE ALL KNOW THAT THE 4TH WAS THE BEST NINJA THAT THE LEAF HAS EVER PRODUCED, BUT HIS ONLY SON IS STUPID, AND WEAK. i don"t think so
LEGACY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THIS MANGA, SO NARUTO'S THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THE RULE OF LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON
The influence of fathers and family in training in naruto is great, and everyone had a head start on naruto, he is raising himself
People with a head-start do better in the beginning, but once the learning curve is closed the loser, stupid person, or weak one out performs the others.
that's why everyone is shocked at naruto
so please people think
