And people please don't say Asuma helped him alot because all he did was show him how add chakra to a weapon. Which really did'nt relate to chakra manipultion.
First off...It took Naruto at least two days before he had cut both the leaf and the waterfall...So lets not say he did it in a few hours...Now while Kakashi does state that it took Sasuke a large number of days to recompose his chakra into lightning, Sasuke was doing it with just one of himself while Naruto was doing it with 1000 clones without which he wouldn't have been able to elementally recompose his chakra for years...Now is that really genius...As for Asuma not helping him out much you couldn't be more wrong...Naruto was progressing quite slow with cutting the leaf untill he went and talked to Asuma and Asuma explained how wind chakra worked and what to picture in his head...Without Asuma's help who knows how much longer it would have taken Naruto just to cut the leaf...Basically without his large chakra reserve Naruto is nothing...If he couldn't make 1000 clones he wouldn't even be able to use wind chakra at this point...Like I have said before I like Naruto...I think he is definitely one of the strongest shinobi out there and is on the same fighting level as some of the other geniuses on the list...But he worked EXTRA HARD
to become what he is now because he is not a genius...
