I find my hero to be way more entertaining then naruto in this beginning phase cause the series actually balances OTHER CHARACTERS getting attention and growth
@megamanx181x, plus with the anime being in yearly series there is waaaaaaaaaaay less filler and better animation quality
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, damn right
@megamanx181x, I find one piece and My Hero to be better then Naruto just in general. Naruto sucks. The only good thing it had going for it was the fight choreography and that soon began to suck as it became over the top sparkle effects where you couldnt see half the fight. My hero and for the most part one peice both have solid story, plot, character development, world building and excellent fight scenes. Naruto falls flat on all fronts. Imho.
@LaDarkProphet, I cannot get past the art style for One Piece. It's so distracting and I hate just about everyone's proportions.
@Yukimura, Thats a shame man cause imho, one piece is a solid anime all the way up to episode 800ish. Solid in its charecter direction, world building, plot development. It never falters with equal parts action and drama with plenty of down time as the hero's go on their adventure. Amazing show
@LaDarkProphet, my gf and I are going through one piece right now. We're at the end of the sky island arc, but we're also skipping most of the filler
@megamanx181x, early Naruto built up so many characters like Rock Lee, Neji or Gaara tho
@WhyNotBoth, yea and then dropped them, I was so mad we never got to see Rock Lee go all out in the ninja wars
@LaDarkProphet, Considering the path that naruto and one piece have been taking one refusing to end and the other pretending that it didn’t perhaps they aren’t the best advisors
@LaDarkProphet, granted one piece prior to around 800 was good but the kiado ark has been slower than watching paint dry and tbh the story is also dropping in quality because it lacks progression. Seems like we will be waiting until over chapter 5000. At least naruto ended. Boku no hero is alright but its shonen, too many powerups... i will agree it's better than naruto's ending but the first 200-300 chapters of naruto were better. Currently that's right where boku no hero's manga is and it's kinda taking a hard downturn in quality. black clover is trash.
@Runnin with scissors, To poor and to lazy to buy/read the Manga. And as you said it yourself, One Peice is great up to episodes 800ish. That is literally 800 episodes of good content versus Narutos 500 episodes of which only a third of them are tolerable. And yea pretty much all Shonen are cookie cutter cliche riddled shows/manga. Doesnt make My Hero a bad show. Despite being what some would call formulaic, imho, it still has enough original ideas and characters to be a worthwhile watch. And I like Black Clover. Yea its not a great anime but its decent enough. Didnt get very far into it though so maybe it gets worse?
Of course for the REALLY good animes you need to go Mad House and Dark Horse and other like companies. Imo anyway.
@LaDarkProphet, I like one piece over naruto but my hero is losing it in the manga right now.
Black clover was alright and I really enjoyed it for a bit but it should've ended. Its doing what Dbz and naruto did towards the end.
I'm not saying shonen are in general bad but they do lack depth.
Mob psycho, inuyashiki, gantz, youjo no senki, and solo leveling (which hasn't had an anime yet but will) are all leaps and bounds better.
Completely disagree with you about Naruto and One Piece but that's just the way humans are. Right out the gate I've felt the Zabuza arc was one of the best Shonen arcs and enjoyed Naruto from then on. One Piece felt like the most long winded series in the history of anime. Takes them 12 episodes to just show reactions to one move and around 50 to finish one fight. I'm being hyperbolic but not by much. Pair that with strange character animation and the existence of the most annoying character in history, Usopp, and it was a slog for alot of it for me. Don't get me wrong, I watched all the way into the Hody Jones arc so I'm not saying it's bad or I didn't enjoy it, but it has a lot of major flaws that hold it back. The Manga is better for One Piece in this regard. Naruto ends up with incredibly fleshed out and complex characters like Itachi, Pain, Jiraiya, Obito, Madera, and has a good ending plot imo. Plus some of the best fights in all of Shonen.
@PottedPlant, If, or whenever, you get the chance you should check out PlaugeofGripes video analysis of Naruto. Explains my thoughts and feelings about Naruto way better then i could lol.
@PottedPlant, dude the zabuza arc is super early and ya it's fantastic but overall argument is that it sucked really bad after around chapter 300. Chapter 300 is after shippuden starts and it definitely goes on a steady decline there. The ending plot has been compared to the ending to game of thrones on many occasions wtf are you talking about? It's all about the instant and multiple powerups through friendship despite the long training arcs. I like jiraiya and itachi but the rest are so so dumb. They literally lost one person important to them and went crazy it's such a flat and flaccid/lacking story. Should've stopped before shippuden.
best fights in shonen my ass too there are countless better ones mob psycho off the top of my head has way better developed characters in fewer chapters and better fights. the series won anime of the year by a good margin. same creator as one punch man another shonen.
@Runnin with scissors,
Noone has ever compared the ending arc of Naruto with Game of Thrones lol. You are conflating the plot, which I am referring to with the Infinite tsukoyomi, vs the great war battles, which I agree have some issues. As far as losing one person, its way more than that, you may want to rewatch it if you just saw it that way. It was about living in a world of constant violence and warfar, and rejecting that world. Pain basically spells this out verbatim, Obito and Madara all talk about this. This is probably why you didn't like the plot if you didn't get this.
Best fights is just my opinion but even people who don't like Naruto will admit it has good fights so idk who you are talking to. I like Mob Psycho too and it has good fights as well. Never said Naruto ONLY has good fights. You seem to just hate Naruto.
@PottedPlant, oh yes they have. Naruto's ending is widely regarded as one of the worst especially after the build up. Just like GOT.
Well I grew up watching naruto even before I started DbZ so I dont hate it and I've rewatched it a couple times. Not recently, because after the ending who cares to suffer that journey again and the comment about obito, pain, and madara stands actually. Yours does too but what triggered their reaction was always the loss of one person or maybe two. Either way it got really flat in its story. You can argue that bleach got better after its first arc too but you'd be wrong and the internet disagrees.
naruto has decent fights but the powerups from friendship during fights despite long training filler has made it kind of a joke because its so consistent and predictable.
@Runnin with scissors,
We can agree on one thing. After the first Bleach arc it became straight garbage.
@PottedPlant, fair enough... I've been obsessed with overgeared lately.... have you heard of god grid?
The anime for bleach ended too soon, the manga just kept getting more and more insane. (Spoilers for anyone who actually does care about maybe reading the manga)
Turns out he's everything. He's one third hollow, one third Quincy, and one third shinigami.
@GonMoose the Great, and one third 17 year old high school student
@GonMoose the Great, I feel like bleach became less about Mary Sue ichigo and more about favorite characters and their panel/ screen time. Kisuke uraharas bankai, the first kenpachi, zaraki unlocking his bankai.
@GonMoose the Great, he was a fullbringer for a short time, so Is he 1/4 everything?
@GonMoose the Great, bleach just got dumb.
@GonMoose the Great, The Anime for Bleach didnt end soon enough if yoh ask me. Imho, Bleach ended after the Aizen arc. Everything else afterwards just... sucks so much crap. I knew the rest of Bleach wasn't for me when i found out mutha fing Kenpachi Zaraki himself suddenly had the mcguffin need to get a bankai... Completely ruining what made him unique and interesting in the first place! They took the guy that made fun of Ichigo and others for having to need their bankais help to fight him while he only fought on his own to.... also needing his Bankai to do anything. Completely pissed me off but thankfully saved me from continuing the series.
Kenpachi v Nnoitra was the best fight in the entire anime, dont even at me.
I recently binge watched My Hero Academia all the way(as far as dub goes, please don't spoil season five if it came out already) and I loved every second of it, I was hooked and I want more, I gotta watch two heros and heros rising
@InsaneWorm, no s5 yet. S4 just finished for dubs like... a few weeks ago.
Other than the unneeded last arc i thought Bleach was amazing. Naruto also ran its course and is all around great. Ignore the filler for those 2. Meanwhile One Piece has gone on way too long and needs to end and DBZ is beginning to run its course and should end before they retcon a new arc... again.
I love anime, but I hate naruto, 95% of the time the pacing of the fights is just terrible, they spend waaaaay too much time on filler, even the battles that are important take waaaay too long. naruto vs sasuke is a good example of a great fight scene but if you watch most the episodes back to back it’s just painful to watch.
I haven’t watched naruto yet but I feel like it’s overrated ppl act like it is the great anime that ever existed so I feel like when I finally watch it no matter how good it is it won’t live up to what all these ppl made me think it would be... side not yu yu hakusho was the best anime
Am i the only one here who doesnt watch anime?
I get the feeling the one piece and DB could take place on the same planet. In both shows the land masses are islands. Don't know how a cross over manga or anime would work, but would love to see it. Same company produces both anime's, so could happen.
@Colez77, there was actually a Smash Bros type game that brought together several different anime series characters... can't remember what it was called.
@Suicide Squad Sucks, are you referring to jump force with DBZ naruto MHA Bleach Jojo’s hxh and others I can’t think of?
@Spooky creatures , I think that might be the one!
The original version of this comic was actually heartwarming.
@TheStarHawk, what was the original version?
@fool for fun, I don't remember, it was a year ago.
@TheStarHawk, you gave me so much hope, I want to know the original so bad, I have since I saw this
