Look mom, I'm actually cool on an Anonymous imageboard.
Okay asshats, Naruto was a decent shonen that went downhill, get over it. It had a good first and second season. However, it eventually started to go downhill; now stop bitching about it. If you're going to bitch about Naruto then please start bitching about the other 5 mainstream shonen fight shows.
Let's compare Naruto's first 2 seasons to the other big 5 shows.
Yu Yu Hakusho's first and second season was mediocre. Want to know a fun fact about Yu Yu Hakusho. During Yu Yu Hakusho's second run on Toonami Yu Yu Hakusho was the second most popular show for the teen and kids demographic (behind DBZ). But during the airing of that abortion of a third season (the first Tournament; not the second) Yuyu's rating sky-rocketed downhil.
Bleach, dont make me laugh. While Naruto was doing the Rock Lee and Gaara fight Bleach was trying its hardest to keep up with Yu Yu Hakuso's shadow.
DBZ, again, don't make me laugh. DBZ's snail pacing makes it fail by default. Maybe if they were to remake it without the snail pacing, I'd consider it as a decent argument.
One Piece, none because I don't watch this shit. Yeah, One Piece is the only shonen that I never watch. It looked too much like Loony Tunes so I dropped it after the first episode. I wont judge it seeing as I haven't watched it yet.
Rurouni Kenshin's first season was filler hell. Naruto's first season blows it out of the water.
