Top 10 Reasons to Hate Naruto

TwilightKitsune
Okay, I admit I used to like this anime. Now I think it sucks. It's my opinion so deal with it.

The Top Ten

1 Filler episodes

Although I like Naruto, this I can agree with. Naruto has like 100 episodes of pure fillers. - Goku02

Why does your bio say you love naruto - speed

2 Stupid characters

Yeah, I'd respect the show more if the female character were handled like the male ones, I won't say it's sexiest or intentionally tried to misogynistic. But it's definitely one of it not the most problematic aspect of the show. The women are treated with little regard, confirm to stereotypes and fanservice. The only decent one was hinata and like ALL THE LEASING WOMEN IN NARUTO. She unrelatically obsessed over a dude and that was pretty much as she was. She was in love with Naruto and NEVER explained why. And she held onto the hope he'd change when he CLEARLY was in love with somebody else. Anyway, it's a problem in Japanese anime and manga in general. So Naruto isn't the only offender but it is it's most infamous.

Just a few of them. - Goku02

Yeah they're overpowered and woman ninjas are treated lower than male ninjas.

Yep. The first arc of Naruto introduced each character with uniqueness, but after that... meh. They got filler running times by constant useless backstory memories, and just learns everything from it!
Also, woman are treated like a person who just cooks or cries for you. Sure, there are woman ninjas and strong feminine like Tsunade. But, they never contribute to the big picture, and are described as rash sidekicks. Ugh, anime these days think woman as a toy!

3 It has a terrible fanbase

Narutards are cancer

4 Sakura is a horrible person

Yep, I hate Sakura, all she cares about is Sasuke. I bet she is Serena's role model, because Serena acts almost like Sakura. "Sasuke! Sasuke! " is basically what she mostly says. - AnimeDrawer

I GOT THUMBED DOWN FOR SAYING THAT/WHY SAKURA IS WAY BETTER THAN ERZA SCARLET ON THE LIST OF "WORST YOUTUBE CHANNELS"! ANTI-FEMINISM IS OVERRATED!

And it's worse since she's the tritagonist! She ruins the series every time her face comes on screen. There are much better female characters, so why did the author choose Sakura to be the main female? -_- - Goku02

5 Sasuke is a jerk

Sasuke is the epitome of badly written characters. Actually the entire show and the manga are written pretty terribly, but Sasuke (in my humble opinion) is the worst out of all of 'em. Firstly he's a stupid little emo with family issues. I don't know about you guys but when I think of ninjas I don't think of edge-lord emos with a chip on their shoulders.

#1 Gary Stu probably even more than naruto, & that’s sad because the series is named ‘naruto.’ KM said sasuke is his favorite, all the girls are thirsty for his d (even when he’s a wanted ninja planning to destroy their village), he was forgiven too easily (at least Orochimaru did stuff to repent for what he’s done), last of his special clan with an ability that can make it so he can easily copy peoples attack... naruto earned his popularity with the girls. Sasuke should have lost it for what he done, but nope mr Gary edgelord stu never will.

6 It is repetitive
7 Naruto is perverted

Perverted characters are almost unavoidable in animes, really. - Goku02

8 It is boring

Not always. - Goku02

9 Sexism

Yeah, I totally agree...

Basically all women are weaker then the men and given lesser powers and abilities, there's barely a woman who actually plays promote within the story and isn't there just for fanservice or conveinence

10 The strength levels of characters are all over the place. Sometimes it's unclear who's stronger than who

Okay, so at one point Kakashi is clearly weaker than Orochimaru. Later on he's able to hold his own against Tobi. Then he becomes the Sixth Hokage. Does that make him stronger than Orochimaru now, one of the legendary Sannin? The strength levels of characters are all over the place throughout the anime. It's unclear who's stronger than who.

The Contenders

11 It is full of cliches

Naruto- the stupid, optimistic, paragon who forgives every enemy unflinchingly
(Sound familiar like 95% of EVERY SHONEN MC EVER)

Sakura- the dizty tsundere whose ENTIRE CHARACTER surrounds a dude who emotionally abuses and ridicules her. Obsesses over being flat as if being flat is a crime(she's worse then Bella Swan)

Sasuke-the sulking whiny bad boy "who all the girls love" (FYI Naruto author whose name I don't care to remeber, do you REALLY THINK all women fall head over heels for emotionless violet jackasses like Sasuke) at first we was good but as all things good in Naruto it faded into obscurity.

I could go on and on about the predictiable, lazy, and downright annoying and degrading tropes that floods the cast of Naruto.

12 It's an anime

What...? - Goku02

13 Treating Characters Badly

Orochimaru was introduced as the perfect antagonist. At one point it was said that no one in the Leaf Village could defeat him. He killed the Third Hokage. Yet later on in the show, as Kishimoto introduces new antagonists, he makes Orochimaru easily defeatable and completely ruins his character, letting Sasuke and Itachi kill him off effortlessly despite him being one of the Sannin.

The same thing happened with Sasori. He was introduced as a very powerful character and his abilities were hyped up, saying that his puppets could take out an entire nation. Yet he struggles and eventually gets defeated easily by Sakura and an old lady, Chiyo, in what is an extremely disappointing fight. He even lets them win at the end.

The same thing happened with Itachi, letting Sasuke win. Tobi revealed later that Itachi could have tried harder if he was really trying to kill Sasuke.

The same thing happened with Danzo. He lost to Sasuke because he was saving up chakra to fight Tobi ...more

Sasori killed the Third Kazekage, who was the strongest in the village's history, and he still lost to Sakura and Chiyo of all people because of plot armor and letting them win.

14 Bad soundtrack

Prove it, please.

15 Plotholes

There are actually no plot holes that I am aware of, and I have watched and read all of the Naruto series from the original to Boruto. I can literally answer every question you ask.

16 Sasuke & Sakura ending up together made no sense

I heard sasuke left Sakura with a child and never returned. That would make sense, at least...

There was little hinting for naruhina at least (only girl Naruto opened up to about his insecurities is Hinata, '...but people like you, I really like! ' 'Where is Hinata? Is she watching? ' (Not Sakura, even though he had a crush on her...?) but sasuke showed absolutely no interest in her besides tolerating her more as a teammate. But of course the idiot had to achieve her goal too, as sasuke & Naruto did. It would b unfair otherwise. But the development of this pair is absolute c**p!
