Stop using terms from TV Tropes.Naruto, is painful to say the least. I wasn't very aware that it had a plot until I skipped a few hundred episodes. Sasuke's past was portrayed so poorly it came off as utter Narm and his personality is just wangst wangst wangst with no well portrayed reason. Everyone is so flat and the fight choreography is sub-par to say the least.
My blood doesn't BURN WITH A FIERY PASSION as I watch the characters fight their poorly written battles for their flat reasons.
My heart doesn't weep manly tears for their passion or lackluster Tear Jerkers NARM.
I do not laugh at their pitiable attempts at comedy.
In other words, a cheap dragged out shonen manga. There are plenty better out there and you all know it.
