Re: Naruto 649 Discussion
I also agree that One Piece is better. Naruto was good but imo it pretty much started its steep fall downhill right after the battle with Naruto and Pain. One piece is much more consistent and balanced and the story doesn't seem as made up as it progresses. Just from a literary perspective one piece has much more character development and explores, in depth, far more themes that anyone can relate to than Naruto as well as creativity IMO. If any professional book reviewer, for example, were going to grade any Naruto arc after pain to almost any arc in One Piece, OP would always receive a better rating. Then again, I always grade a story according to the same criteria as book and movie reviewers so we almost always agree and complain about the same things. But not everyone grades according that criteria as KYF most likely does not.
