Naruto has THOUSANDS of problems that anonymous has pointed out. Problems that have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FANS.
- Too much focus on Sasuke.
- Incredibly drug out plot.
- Interesting side characters getting shoved out of the way or not given enough screen time.
- Very little actually HAPPENING.
- DBZ syndrome (dragging out fights through multiple episodes)
All of these are actual arguments against Naruto itself. The actual fanbase has nothing to do with this. Of the criticisms of GL I've mostly seen them varied from one poster to another.
Some criticize Nia, Kittan, Viral or some other character. Some criticize the "explosions" for not looking realistic and some just say the character designs are ugly.
Fine. But don't blame a reaction OF the show as though it was the shows own fault. GAINAX made a super robot show and released it to a general public and that's just how some reacted. How hard is it to say
