    I just want to make it clear, I'm not ranting about it, I happen to like Naruto very much :nod.

    I'm sure most of you have noticed these things, but they've been sitting in my brain and I need to get them out.

    1. Did you ever notice that almost EVERY CHARACTER has a huge tragic past, which they then spill their hearts out to a person they don't even know?

    2. And said tragic past character takes up more then half of the episode, talking about said past? ((Which is usually predictable.))

    3. ((This was said by a classmate of mine))
    You ever notice, that when a character is covered in blood, weapons embedded deap into their bodies, somebody just HAS to come running in yelling, "Daijobu!?!? ((Are you ok!?))" XD Of course they're not ok! They have a KUNAI STUCK IN THEIR LEG!!!

    4. In EVERY battle, either the main bad guy or main character SPENDS MORE THEN HALF OF THE EPISODE talking about either their weapons/plans/past/something else. Just SHUT UP ALREADY! Garsh!

    5. This one thing has been bothering me ever since the beginning of the series. When the guy with the white hair ((forgot his name)) flung the giant ninja star at Iruka, which hit him DIRECTLY at the back where his heart should be, and Iruka just stood up and took the thing out of his back and through it back at him!?

    Come on! That thing is a four hundred pound, giant, sharp edged, freaking ninja star, that hit him directly in his back....and the thing only goes in one inch and doesn't even make a bad injury!? x3

    6. This may be just me, but when they introduce a new bad guy, you're all like. "Booo! You jerk! Somebody kill them!!!" But just when he tells his tragic past or has a REALLY sad moment, you're all like "*Sniff sniff* Nuuuu! Did he have to die? TT_TT"

    7. The chuunin exams reeeeaaaaally just made me want to thras my computer. In EVERY battle, the speeches were longer then the battles ._. I mean, do ninjas EVER fight without having a 10 min. long conversation? x3

    Ummm....I'll put more later. Put anything else you think is worth mentioning?

    Hey, this is a classic cliche. It's something that MUST happen.

    Orichimaru: Now, I'll kidnap this maiden, and tie her to the traintracks! Kukukuku. ::twirls invisible mustache::

    heh the manga has less talking and more fighting
    in the anime they have to find a way to waste time because 30 mins of it is alot of time lol
    and yeah same with alot of animes the manga is shorter and more right to the point

    As for (1)

    Sakura needs a tragic past - at least one more tragic than fighting with her best friend over some guy who could care less.

    I actually like the fillers, but that's just me.

    Yay, some people actually agree with me! <3

    Actually, Sakura does have a "tragic past", she was made fun of, remember?

    The thing that annoys me about Naruto is...that ninjas look really really stupid when they run.

    No, seriously, who runs like that? All bent over with their arms tucked back against their sides....silliest thing I ever saw.

    Honestly those things don't bother me that much except when Iruke gets hit with the thing and it goes 1 inch in.

    What really bothers me is that sometimes characters can dodge things and other times they can't dodge slower things.

    Take for example when Kakashi fought Itachi right, and he goes underwater and hands the kunai to Kurenai, and she's like "Thanks Kakashi"

    WTF IS THAT? Not like she doesn't have one already, and that takes like 3 seconds to do, in which Itachi could have done 3 techniques with his handseal speed.

    There are other examples but I don't want to think of them right now.

    But yes, it's an anime, live with it.

    I agree with everyone else who's mentioned the loads of dialogue going over stuff we've already figured out. I mean i don't mind explanations but if it's taking away from the action in the middle of a battle, then SHUT UP!!

    I'm also getting tired of Sakura doggin on Naruto 95% of the time and her worshipping of Sasuke whenever his name comes up. She needs to get another punching bag and a new crush.

    Yeah. I agree. Shikamaru doesn't have a tragic past. Possibly because he never tried to stand out. Went through life alright in his early years, still has both parents, has good friends.....

    ....BUT!!!!!

    Spoiler:
    With a lack of a tragic past comes a tragic future. Thats irony for ya.

    But this happen a lot in all the genre, the "bad guy turns good" is as typical in the genre that nobody seems that is ridiculous in the end.

    Dialogue is necessary to flesh out the characters but what is annoying is that character development rarely happens if Naruto isn't present. Also the tragic characters all seem to undergo a spiritual revival(again if Naruto is present) and a change in philosophical perspective that transforms them into crappy Naruto fangirls/boys. The only exception is Sasuke and he's practically begging to be Narutoed.

    Of course you must have the dialogue partly cos they need the anime to not totally overtake all the manga volumes in under 50 episodes. I remember some certain earlier episodes in the series that had the first half reviewing everything that happened in the last episode, now that may have been good for some peeople but for DVD or other media viewers it was annoying.

    Yeah, that whole 1 second "OMG! You changed my life!" And I tottally agree when the bad guy is like UBER powerful, Naruto lands a punch, and it's like "I SEE THE LIGHT!!!!"

    I honestly like talking but for the love of GOD!!! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE FIGHTING ALREADY!!! Talk BEFORE or AFTER the freaking battle! -.-;

    Shikamaru doesn't have a tragic past as far as we know, but still, TRAGITY((I forgot how to spell this)) happens! OoO
