Boooooring and Stereotypical?
I don't know whether it's just me but naruto has become a little boring: one-sided and too stereotypical. Especially ever since it was revealed that Tobi was obito and the whole Madara been alive till just a few years ago.

1. It's like everything reverts back to the uchiha and madara: their hatred. Madara(uchiha clan) are the centre of the Narutoverse and all other things revolve around them.
where are all the other interesting characters, clans and story angles. The dual theme the story started with has been reduced to one: Uchiha hatred theme.

2. I am also tired with the someone becoming strong because they want to protect loved ones or someone becomes a villain/evil because they lost someone they love sub-plots. what happened to other motivations in life. That is why I liked Kabuto but hated his back-story.

3. why did Oro have to come back in such a frivolous manner when unknown or poorly developed characters could have generated a new spark into the story. whatever Oro is about to do could have been achieved without him being revived.

The stereotype: it's like if you are born uchiha, there is a 99% chance you will turn evil. I did not agree with the Tobi=Obito theories because it was too simple and uninteresting. I had wanted Kishi to dumbfound us by breaking the uchiha/senju stereotypes. For me it would have been better if the story had gone this way:

Madara at the VotE realised his evil ways and repented. In his bid to sanctify the uchiha name he worked secretly with Hashirama to try to find a way to end hatred in the world. A senju(Tobi) who has a bone to pick with the uchiha learns about this and conspires and murder both Hashirama and Madara. He then impersonates Madara so to fester hate and anger against the uchiha. He instigates for the uchiha to be exterminated and sets his sights on ruling the world.

well... that's my amateurish take. Let me know what you think.

I do agree that the Uchiha hatred theme is a bit old now. Hatred in itself is a key center point to the whole series (Kyuubi = being of hatred, Naruto out to rid the world of hatred, etc). That's why I hated Sasuke. He left with Oro to get power, then finally kills Itachi and wants to destroy Konoha, even though Itachi did all of this to protect Konoha? This is stupid and ridiculous.
Now then, to answer the points:

1. I agree that it is kinda stupid that the Uchiha is the main focal point of the story. I liked the Hyuuga's and the Byakugan - I thought it was pretty interesting. Yet it all just goes back to the Uchiha and their annoyances.

2. I agree, it is a somewhat cliche theme for power. But remember that was how the series really began. Naruto began getting stronger when Iruka was about to be killed. Sasuke sought power because his clan was murdered. Stuff like that. That is, annoying or otherwise, how the plot really developed.

3. Orochimaru coming back at all was just annoying. I thought he was finally gone, yet here he is. It made sense that he was still alive, though. Remember: When Sasuke fought Itachi and was out of chakra, Orochimaru freed himself from the curse mark then. So it makes sense that he was still alive, because Anko still had her curse mark. But still, annoying.

The stereotype: Yes, it is annoying. I never liked the Uchiha because I viewed them as extremely overpowered, but the thought behind the Sharingan and whatnot was pretty interesting. But it just annoyed me that they pretty much all went evil. Another reason why I hated Sasuke: I thought that he would be the one Uchiha to stay good, yet he proved me wrong. Itachi was secretly good, so I guess that is alright.

That little back story is pretty interesting. Ah well. This is how the manga turned out, so no use crying over spilled milk, I guess. It is frustrating, though. How much more overpowered can you get than Madara, though? With just his staff, he blocked a Tailed-Beast mode Naruto's Tailed-Beast Bomb Rasengan. Seriously? Not only that, it was effortless AND he just smashed him away. -Sigh.-

Im really mad over the fact that Hashirama can't be revived again. After seeing how powerful Madara is, seeing Hashirama in action would be ridiculous. The fight between the Orochimaru and Hiruzen was a waste of the first and the second hokage. Why is Orochimaru never dead? I do agree, Sasuke could have definetely did whatever he was going to do by himself or with someone other than Orochimaru as a partner. Also other characters I would love to see are, Rin, Kakashi's dad, and the jinchuuriki in more depth.

Posted by narutoboy05 2 years ago

On the Orochimaru point, I actually made a thread about this in a different forum before he was even revived speculating that he shouldn't actually be dead yet because he still had 1 back-up plan left. I disagree that it was frivolous, as Kishimoto had shown us that he set the stage for Orochimaru's revival during the fight between Itachi and Sasuke.

As for the Obito bit... eh, I think we would have liked it ten times more if Kishimoto executed it much better. In fact, I'm sure he wouldn't even have half the complaints about that aspect of the plot if he used a different name than Tobi. At that point, it just seemed like the idea of a 5 year old.

1: Uchiha being the point of it all was the main story to Naruto in the first place. It'd be more accurate to say the sage is the middle of it all considering the sharingan was a root from the sage. The whole story is centered around a destined fate of 2 clans clashing. Which is what we will probably see with Naruto and Sasuke.

2. I'd like to know what other in-depth motivating factors there are that aren't, or don't stem from, protection, powerlust and revenge to attain power. That is open to any anime, ever. Those are key motivating factors to anyone gaining strength, it just depends on how they portray acquiring it.

3. I agree Orochimaru coming back was kinda dull, but we all saw it coming. The way it happened with Sasuke during the Itachi fight was obvious too considering Orochimaru said he put his "lifeforce" chakra into all his curse marks. I mean I wouldn't be surprised if he jumped out of the bone dude's curse mark now that he's resurrected via ET.

Itachi AND Shisui were both good guys FYI.

Posted by qraq 2 years ago

shisui is the only known good uchiha. Itachi massacred a whole clan: children, women, old people. Someone who commits genocide can not be good. And don't try to argue for his good intentions because if we are to consider intentions, then half of the people languishing in prisons the world over would have been freed.

@qraq. In naruto all the villains are motivated by their twisted desire to make the world a better place. Except probably Oro who only wanted immortality.

The story is about two brothers disagreement being carried on by their descendants. Now the story has focused on only one side of the divide that we know virtually nothing about the other. So far we only know of 2 100% senju. The overemphasis on the uchiha is making the story boring. I want to also read the story being told from the senju view. So we are treated to both sides view injecting some variety into the story.

crying about how the story is all uchia this and senju that is a waste of time its been that way from the beging what where u expecting some none uchia to be tobi? and secondly oro wasnt all about immortality he was about knowledge he wanted to be immortal so he can learn all of the jutsu of the world

No I am crying about how the senju have been marginalized in the story so far. Whilst uchiha's keep cropping up, there aren't any other known senju aside the 1st and 2nd.

Also Oro wanted to be immortal because he feared death. He wanted knowledge that could make him a perfect immortal. But I guess to live forever you also have to stop people from killing so he had to be powerful.

Posted by Quajo 2 years ago

there is tsuande but what other senju do they talk about besides the 1st and 2nd none really they talk about the uchia as a hole.

wrong oro didnt fear death at all. he wanted to learn every jutsu he was afraid that if he died all his knowledge would disapear he even says that

Posted by wombat3476 2 years ago

My Point is this, the senju are a reputable and important clan in the history of Konoha and the narutoverse. For them to have virtually gone extinct in less than a century of Konoha's founding would mean that something may have happened to them. Did they die in the world wars? The manga has run to over 600 chapters and we still do not know this. This is at best an oversight on Kishi's part.

Oro feared death. Dealing with the death of his parents so young, seeing Tsunade's pain at the death of dan and all the dead he saw during the 2nd world war.

I don't know...in my opinion, there is still a lot to learn about the leaf village and Senju clan. Why doesn't anyone from the village question where all the Senju are? Something tells me that the members of the leaf know of some sort of event that may have occured to the Senju.
