NARUTO: The anime or The manga.

In actuality, I never got why people bash Naruto for having bad animation. Doesn't sound like they watched a lot of anime. Seems like pretty average stuff, personally. It liked to switch between decent to so-so to hilarious deformity, and then the occasional "Hey, this actually looks pretty cool". I've seen worse.

Holy ****, who was the animation director behind that?

Forward him to me.

That sh*t's hilarious. xD

I like Naruto a lot. Finding out how many people look down on it was a shock to naive little me. I prefer the anime to the manga, but not based on claims of either one being better. I just don't enjoy reading through many mangas or comic books. They're great art forms in their way, of course, but feel tedious to me while reading. Plus, some animation is just fun to watch. If you have a great fight scene and a great fight animation, the animation is likely going to be more interesting.

Not really, no.

Neither really there is no point in it now, the anime is full of ENDLESS FILLERS and the manga is getting stale. the series imo is in no way bad but it is to overhyped and overrated. Sauske cant come back to the village, he killed to many people so what the hell is naruto doing does he think the village will let him come back? the manga is just foucsing on little charaters that are just going to get killed and never come back. it the anime followed the book complety it wouldn't be so bad. aleast one piece filler and FMA fillers were interesting, not ohh lets get a random team, chase this guy, get our asses kick,then used the kiyuubi chakra to beat down the enemy before help arives.

What do you mean? The whole series as a whole is popular not just the anime or the manga. Also, the manga material is used in the anime but the anime uses filler.

I've read about as much of the manga as I have watched the anime; I saw up to the Chuunin Tournament or whatever in the anime, and I think I read up to when they're in the forest right before the tournament in the manga. I personally like the manga better (of course, I was reading a fan-translated version, so it was less censored than the regular manga probably is, which was a major plus; not that swearing makes things better, but it just made it a lot more crude than it probably is in the official translations, which is kind of realistic considering that they're just boys). It's a lot more artistically done and everyone just looks cooler; you can tell that a lot more time was spent on the manga than any of the animation done in the anime. That can't really be helped, though; pretty sure that the people who animate Naruto were going for quantity over quality, since they knew it was going to be a huge thing and that making it a super-long show would make it even more popular than it already would be.

don't kill me for this... but as for right now, the manga is, the anime is skipping the entire pein destroying konoha arc and going straight to the 8-tails arc....

The Eight-tails arc was before the Pein arc in the manga though.

I think the Manga is actually a re-watching the anime, without anything justifies the reading.

As of right now, I don't think either one is better- they absolutely killed the series. But before it became what I feel is garbage, I thought the manga was better. Not only was it farther along and didn't take nearly as much time to get into as the anime, there were no pointless fillers. Not to mention that with the anime some of the voices made me laugh really hard and I didn't focus on the show itself while the character was speaking.

How did "they" kill the series?

They weren't pointless fillers. Those fillers were made to put some distance between the anime and manga material.

But still, I prefer the Anime, although the Manga is pretty nice. the anime's plots is much more better, the manga still needs to improve.
