Greatest Anime of All Time
« see full list
Naruto Shippuden and Naruto are both incredibly epic animes. It makes you cry, laugh and keeps you wanting more and more! I've seen many animes in the past year and I can honestly say that the Naruto series is the best by far. It shows immense growth throughout the seasons from all characters, and the main characters aren't ridiculously strong characters that never lose, so that makes it realistic. The background on each character is very detailed and well done. Even though its not the most happy anime ever that does not make it depressing or boring. This should be down next to Naruto on the list.
Unlike many long animes, I believe that Naruto was on of the most interesting and even unpredictable animes that I've seen. I will be honest, the amount of filler episodes was a bit disappointing, when the real episodes come, they make up for all the fillers. Unlike the original Naruto, the episodes seem more sad in a good way. All the sad scenes in it are great and put you on the edge of your seat. The character development is great and the plot keeps you thinking about the episodes ahead. That's why I think Naruto Shippuden should be at least on the top ten.
In my opinion, Naruto has surpassed even Dragon Ball Z. Despite being indoctrinated into loving Dragon ball z during my early childhood, Naruto just has a much deeper meaning; sure Dragon ball z was plenty of fun and the fight scenes were probably the most epic of all time, but the intensity of the story in Naruto is just unfathomable, to watch Naruto grow and become such a hero after his hardships it just has to be the most depressing and at the same time euphoric storyline not just in anime, but in history! Dattebayo!
The Naruto franchise is the best anime ever! It is upbeat, funny, sad, romantic, amazing, awesome, and epic at the same time no other animes can make me cry, laugh, and cheer as much as Naruto. It's storytelling is almost perfection and almost every event or piece of dialogue whether if it's a memory and a fleeting moment has a deeper meaning than meets the eye (or ear). The soundtrack is one of the best I've heard and makes the challenge of making music fit the show a cinch! The fights are amazing because of strategy, shinobi logic, and one thing that only Naruto has, jutsu! But where this show truly shines is the characters! Everyone in the show is important in their own way whether it be good or bad, some characters that were just the worst people in the world have become the one of the awesomest. We can even see their backstrories and what the origins to their morals are. Their powerful wills even makes them beautifully inspirational. It has everything that makes an anime great! Therefore makes it the best of all time!
The world of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden is immense and so detailed, the plot line is believable and you get to see the characters as they develop. I like it especially in comparison to stuff like Fairy Tail because the characters actually have limitations that you know about, there's no secret power they miraculously get that doesn't get explained. You get to watch them learn as they succeed but also when they fail or other characters die. For such a large fictional world, I still feel a part of it which doesn't happen often. Yes the filler is annoying, but I just skip it and go back to it when taking a break from the plot or waiting for the next season. I also have to say the music is amazing!
To be honest I think Naruto is the best anime I ever watched cause Naruto and Naruto shippuden are both awesome. I don't seriously know why some people say it's a kids show and is boring, cause if they watched every single episode theyd understand. every time I watch it after every episode it leaves me I suspense, whats gonna happen next? Its organised and explains t everything clearly and has an incredible story line, graphics, music and action. It could make you laugh and cry and when some one dies you can feel it. Naruto from a whiny kid develops into a villages hero and till now look how much he's accomplished. everyone acknowledges him from what he's become. it deserves to be number #1.
The story is sad and emotional. Goes into great detail about the characters, their role in the anime, and how they feel. Expresses why someone preforms a specific action in the anime. For example in some anime people are bad just because they need villains. In Naruto the villains have a purpose such a revenge. The anime is built well though it does have its fillers which you can skip.
Naruto, is just the most beautifulest thing I've ever watched. Maybe even read but I like watching it more. I just love how they give so much detail to all the characters. Give so much reason to them. So much history. And the fighting is just epic, and has so much logic and tactics in it. Just amazing. I could laugh my gut off, and even cry at some times. It's not just a "cartoon" like how my maid says. I believe it's got that sense of reality, and so much reality added to everyone, I think it's one of those works of art.
Don't mean to say it's best but, finding an anime like this is as hard as finding a four leaf clover.
A lot of people just assume Naruto and shippuden in general are bad. They think the story line is weak and the characters pointless. But I bet most of these people didn't finish Naruto or Shippuden. If they had, they wouldn't be saying that. I used to be one of these people, but after watching all of Naruto and shippuden I realized the story line is very complex and not at all simple while the characters develop to be interesting and very likable. If you haven't seen Naruto or Naruto Shippuden PLEASE give this show a chance, it might be long but it's worth it.
In my opinion Naruto is the best anime that I have ever had the fortune to cross it's a whole different world it will shock make you cry even make you feel sorry for the baddies and show you that every one has a reason for their actions it teaches you friendship and bravery and makes believe in your self it also taught me that the weak are can be strong if they chose to be it has all different genres just like harry potter is the god of all novels Naruto is the god of all anime/manga
It is the one and only anime that touches my deep, deep and the bottom of my heart and the revenge I long hatred had gone. It teaches you how to become stronger not just physical but mentally too. The will to never give up gives him hope and support to become the hokage. He has never complaint about giving up. His crush Sakura and hinata ( secretly crushing on him) give him the support he need. He had save thousands of life and surpassed his sensei. This show is the perfect show for all ages and it should be ranked the number 1
I'm watching Naruto since 2007 and once you've started watching it believe me there's no way out I have a type of craze for it. And How come Naruto is at the end of the top 10 list? I mean this (Naruto Shippuden) is called an anime. Its plot is amazing the way it carries the characters all the way and then the music and OST is fantabulous even though I'm not a Japanese but I still learned the lyrics to the song it makes you feel awesome.
Yes it is the best. Because everything is detailed. Even there uniform in Naruto the circle in the back the uzumaki sign that they revealed in shippuuden. Why there uniform have that sign. And the writer really is amazing. Everything have explanation. There technique. Team work. And plans. Its amazing that there king is not the hokage. It's the children of there village. Nice point there. Naruto is really realistic. There still many things. Watch it and you will know what I'm talking about.
I think people misunderstood when they voted for Naruto because Naruto Shippuden outclasses it by so much. Anyone who has seen every episode of each multiple times would know that Shippuden is what makes Naruto truly great. Detailed characters. There isn't a single character in the anime/manga that you don't know the background of. Also, the backgrounds of all the characters are really deep and are never exactly like another character. Overall my favorite anime by far.
I don't understand why Naruto and Naruto shippuden are seperated it's the same anime but still it is the best anime. everything in Naruto is just so different and awesome and the character development is so well done but the best part is the fights damn the one with pain was just so breathtaking and when obito showed his face I was like trembling with excitement it has everything in it Naruto has made me cry and laugh like retards and you get so much to learn from it honestly I have changed so much because of it after watching Naruto I feel that I have become a more good person!
Naruto has the best psychological presentation in anime history. It is very mature from thinking. don't know how it is in no.6. I don't care, it's the best and I don't pay attention to some sorry SOB waste time opposing it instead of watching it.
Amazing story line, great battle tactics, heartbreaking emotion and awesome soundtrack.
It has the best explanation why a person turns into a villain and that all of them have a heart till the very end somewhere deep down.
Very inspirational, dedicated, and motivational.
Just praying someone at least understand the story's depth before giving any comment.
Number 6? Now if Naruto is number one this should be god like level. fairy tale though? This is by far the best of the best! This show will have you hooked. best fight scenes, best story, best characters, and by far some of the best ideas. is this is joke at number six. watch it and find out and I 100% guarantee your time back. laugh out loud if you even want it back cause it will be one of the best animes you've seen. number 1? Definitely.
Honestly I don't think you get a better story line its become so great I decided to stop watching because I can't deal with waiting every week for a new episode I want to accumulate more.. Really I don't think any other anime comes close to Naruto but bleach and katekyo hitman reborn is good as well but like I said nowhere close to the intense story lines of Naruto
Well really I think Naruto Shippuden should be right under Naruto because think about it it's a sequel to the original series and it's just as good maybe even better all the characters are grown up, they look a lot better, and all the fights are better because everyone is more experienced and have better moves.
Amazing series! Probably one of the most progressive stories I've ever witnessed. Although I truly enjoyed the first Naruto series, this one doesn't have to take as long to build up the intensity. Not to mention the "boss" fights were far beyond many others, similar to DBZ's Majin Buu and the Espada on Bleach. Each one was unique and enticing with the right twist. But the two best parts are the battle with Pain and TOBI! BEST VILLAIN EVER!
I don't get it Naruto shippuden is ma phenominal show it deserves to be up there because it has great action and a great story. I have watched a lot of animes and this has always been in my top 3. I understand I haven't seen all of the animes in this world but why the heck does Naruto have a better rating. This show should at least be in the top 10.
It must be on the first place because the storyline is very excellent. All the things happened in the story has a reason. It has also a good sense and run in the story than others. It is like a novel or a folk literary work just made to be an anime. Masashi Kishimoto has a brilliant mind creating such a beautiful manga. It has really touched the true elements of a story. I will vote for it as the number 1. Many literature classes tell Naruto and Naruto Shippuden are exemplary stories which show good elements of a story if manga or anime will be tackled.
Although the first series very much impressed me and hugely raised my expectations for this sequel series, this one met and surpassed every last one of my expectations. Better animation, better story arcs, and a far more serious tone than the first series, but maintains the somewhat comical moments Naruto is known for. Ultimately this series may be drawing to a close, but it will live on forever as one of the greats.
Having seen both Fairy Tail and Naruto Shippuden, Naruto wins by a long shot. For starters, the action is clever and unpredictable (while Natsu from Fairy Tail powers up on fire and the power of friendship). Also, the story is funny, intense and at times heart breaking. The only thing wrong with Naruto is the crazy amount of filler, but you can choose to skip this if you want. Naruto Shippuden should at least be in the top 5
Naruto is a great anime and so as Naruto Shippuden one of my favorite I started watching it when I was in grade school but now I'm in collage and I still enjoyed it a lot
I will recommend this to all anime lovers out there this should be in the top
