Why Naruto is ruining the Children

Now you guys may be wondering, "What the hell has happened to Anime is Blasphemy? All they do is post videos off of youtube, and talk about the Venture Bros. I hate it, even though Venture Bros is freaking awesome, however, I wish they would talk about Anime." I am here to say that I, Rabbit-man will talk about anime today, so all you jerks can just SHUT UP!!!!

Now where was I, oh yeah, Naruto apparently is gathering up a truckload of ratings for the Cartoon Network, and those crazed young boys between the ages of 2 and 12, just can't get enough of that plucky little ninja. In fact many people are saying that Naruto will become the next Dragon Ball Z in that all boys in their tweens and early teenage years will be watching it. Now I could include some ratings information, to back up my claims about Naruto's popularity, but that would take time, and I don't have it, because I'm mad as hell, and I need to say some stuff. Mainly that NARUTO IS RUINING THE CHILDREN!!!!!
Don't believe me do you, well here are five reasons why:

1. It encourages cheating on tests- I remember watching this one episode where all the main characters had to cheat on this Test in order to become full fledged Ninjas, and about half of the episode was about them cheating in all sorts of cool ways. Just what is this telling the children? I'll tell you what, that those little freaks can cheat on their tests, because their heroes the ninjas did it. NO NO NOOO!!!!

2. It is sexist-Whenever I watch this show that chick with the pink hair never does anything. Naruto and his little buddy Sasuke could be getting their asses kicked by that goddamn transexual kid with the ice mirrors, and the pink haired chick just cries while they are getting owned. Not to mention that one time when the pink haired chick was supposed to defend her friends from three incredibly gay ninjas, and she got whupped, and had to have like nine other dudes save her. Then there was that episode where that same pink haired chick fought the blonde bimbo chick, and they reminisced about how they learned to arrange flowers in Ninja school. What the hell So according to Naruto all women are good for is crying when their friends are getting their asses kicked, getting saved by other people, and arranging flowers. LAME

3. The main character is a misfit loser-Yeah I'll say it, this whole trend started with those gosh darned Harry Potter books, with their messages like "You can be whatever you want to be, and try hard". NO you stupid kids, you'll never be like Harry Potter, because Harry Potter is freaking wizard, and wizards don't exist, but frog wizards do (and don't you people debate me on that again). So by that same logic the children can't be like Naruto because he's a Ninja and Ninjas don't exist, and never did. AND DON'T YOU PEOPLE TELL ME THEY DID!!!

4. The main character is possessed by a Demon, and nobody cares-Back in my day whenever somebody got possessed by a demon, people either made a movie about it, tried to exorcise it, or they at least talked to a televangelist about it. But nowadays, they think Oh I'll use the demon's power to beat up that goddamned transexual kid with the ice mirrors, and that albino with the snake tongue. Well let me tell you what. Using a Demon's powers to beat up people no matter how annoying they are is bad, because DEMONS ARE AGENTS OF THE DEVIL!!!!

5. They fight with weapons- Now I'll be the first to admit throwing a Ninja star at somebody is pretty cool, but I'm a teenage boy who would never do such a thing, unless if I was paid to do so, or it was in an act of Vengeance. But I digress, all the kids who watch this show will soon take their kitchen butcher knives, and begin to recreate their favorite Ninja battles, which is completely wrong, because ninjas don't use knives to kill, they use their special ninja techniques. You don't want the children to kill each other with weapons in the name of Naruto, because it's inacurate to the spirit of the show. Besides killing someone with a weapon is just cowardly, a true ninja would kill somebody with their bare hands, while they're naked, just like Brock Samson. WATCH THE VENTURE BROTHERS!!!!!

Or

Youtube=Bourgeosie taking advantage of other people's work
Anarchist=Super-omega-Bourgeosie-3000 taking the work of other bourgeosie and not giving them just compensation, and by extension not giving just compensation to those hard working people who made the stuff in the first place. God what a jerk!!

Hah I seriously doubt that the small children will become small ninjas, and try to kill people. Or are you saying they also become super heroes, and kills super villains, or maybe they will all turn into mafias, and run the whole city?

Oh, and by the way, Naruto came out way before Harry Potter did. If you want to diss something, then at least do some research on it first. Seriously, 'transsexual child', 'the albino with the snake tongue'? Seriously, instead of judging something because you are so shallow minded that you think that small children will become everything they see because they think it's cool, then try to actually ask people what they think of it, and what they think of it.

And also, the main character (Naruto) isn't over happy that he has that demon inside him. Sure, he may have to kill some people with it's powers, but all it gave in return is loneliness. He want to get rid of it, but he can't or else he will die!

Lastly, Naruto is certainly NOT sexcist. If you read the manga, you would see that the 'pink haired girl' AKA Sakura (omg start getting the names right) is now super powerful, and she actually killed a super villain, (which was a man/puppet) with the help of an old woman!

So to wrap this up, you should stop being so bitchy about everything because you think it sucks. But hey, if you think of a good idea how to make a manga and anime while it's not violent and doesn't 'inspire children to be violent', be my guest!

Dear citizen,
Do not make light of all the children turning into "mafias" and running the city. I worry about that prospect everyday, and not a day goes by when I don't thank god that those little punks haven't realized they could take over so easily.

Naruto is so sexist, you said it yourself that pink haired chick needed an old woman to help her kill a supervillain, how pathetic. See it takes two women to kill one pseudo man (or a puppet as you put it). I'll bet that Albino with the snake tongue, or the one eyed dude, or even the fat slob could have done it without the help of some stupid old lady, and could have even beat up that silly old lady along with the puppet dude.

Being posessed by a demon is no joke. I would like to inform you of Anelise Mitchel who was killed in 1976 during the course of an exorcism. You should also research a recent exorcism in which a 23 year old woman named Maricica Irina Cornici was chained to a cross for three days, and subsequently died of starvation in Romania. Does being posessed by a demon sound as awesome as Naruto makes it out to be now?

Also Harry Potter did indeed come out before Naruto. Naruto premiered in Shonen Jump in Japan in 1999, and then those heathen Japanese started a Naruto tv show on October 3 2002. Harry Potter on the other hand was published in the United Kingdom in July of 1997. So who's not doing research now huh? HUH!!!!

Citizen, don't ever try to swim against the mighty tide of justice, you'll just end up looking like a fool.

ok first of all im 13 years and u dont c me throwing my kitchen knives at people and also i do agree that the pink haired girl as u put it whos name is in fact sakura is pretty worthless in the tv show SO FAR she dose become verry helpful later in the show and i dont belive that demons exsist and neither do little chirlden that watch the show either and naruto the main charicter is a loud nuckel headed ninja but he would kick ur ass if he was reall i happen to be a diehard fan of naruto so if u wanna bad mouth it then u better take it up with me cus every thing u say im gonna have a good come back for i watch naruto every single night i bet u dont u cant talk trash on something u dont even know that much about and u can tell u dont know that much about it cus u dont even use the charicters names u just rudly insult them by saying things like pink haired girl and freakey albino snake dude so ya u can trash talk about it wen u learn every single one of the charicters names o and isnt it up to the parents of the kids if they choose to let there chirlden watch that i mean serisously just cus u dont like it donsent mean that they should like cancel the show or something cus alot and i mean alot of people love that show o and ur talking about naruto being a bad influence the venture bros is even worse i have seen that show before and its just a preverted old scientist and a cigret smoking body gaurd who beats people up and some of the episodes r pretty nasty and u talked about haku which is a boy and said he was a transsexual well wat do call the freaky nurse lady that sounds like a guy that sounds like a trans sexual to me hun!!!!!

Alright 13 year old kid I will argue with you. FIrst I would like to point out that I wrote this article almost two years ago so thank you for proving that people are still interested in reading my opinion.
I have read the comic up to pretty recently and the pink haired chick is still worthless. Sure they reintroduced her and she could punch a hole in the ground, but she couldn't even beat a puppet dude, some old lady had to help her out. All she has done since then is running around while Naruto and his friends look for Sasuke. Naruto actually killed a bunch of dudes Who has the pink haired chick killed?

Also I contend that I can totally kick Naruto's ass. I'd smack that little freak into the ground so fast it wouldn't be funny. I'll kick his ass right now. You didn't see this but I just totally tore apart a Naruto comic and flushed it down the toilet.

Here is a small tip learn to spell you correctly "u" is not going to cut it in an argument. Also the word is see not "c". Naruto has obviously destroyed your ability to spell. Another reason why naruto is ruining the children.

WHo the hell cares if I am rude to fictional characters. I think describing the characters appearance is far more accurate than naming them. Freaky albino snake dude is so much more descriptive than orochimaru, also he is albino, and a snake so how is that insulting or rude?

Let me be clear I hate Naruto so much that I hope they cancel it and go to japan and burn ever single piece of merchandise he has ever appeared on. Naruto fills me with such hatred that I can't even stand it. Every day that goes by when that little freak is still on tv is a day that adds to my righteous anger. And no 13 year old kid is going to make me stop writting about how much I hate that little ninja freak and all his gay friends.

Thank you for your comment citizen. I really appreciate the feedback.

Off seriously rabbit-man(where r u from?) y r really stupid!!!!How old r u anyway?(oh my english isnt very good)Clearly u dont hate Naruto cus u have read the manga and wached the anime.And also Sakura was really useless in the start(frankly i dont like her but i hate her less after she became stronger) but now she is very powerfull and Sasori (the puppet guy) is an Akatsuki member who is also very powerfull so it wouldnt be easy for anybody to defeat him.And by the way Oroshimaru would need time to defeat him too.But Orochimaru is one of the strongest characters so u cant compare sakura with him.Besides if she was weak like before she woul have started to cry and she was gonna get killed from the start and even the old woman wouldnt be able to save her.And I have a little sister that is 9 years old and she doesnt throw our kitchen knifes.Kids over 10 years understand what Naruto is really about and kids under 10 dont.As in 'oh there is a cartoon i am gonna watch it.They watch it and like it but when it is over they forget about it and start to watch something else or draw or play or whatever(like my sister).I am a girl and i am 14 years (most of my friends think it is stuped that i watch animes but other like Naruto too) but seriously i can tell that i can learn a lot more from Naruto (and other cool animes) than from some extremly stubid soap opera (like bold and beauty).PS-not only boys at 2-12 age watch Naruto.I can tell that girls watch Naruto as well and from the age of 2-18.PS2 - we both know that even if u started to like Naruto and realise how great it is u wouldnt admit it of course!!!!!

Anonymous:
First things first: I mentioned the whole boys aged 2-12 thing, because those are the demographic measured for cartoon networks advertising. I wasn't trying to say that only 2-12 year old boys are watching Naruto

Since this whole argument has turned into a discussion on whether or not the pink haired chick is useless, I posit this theory: Afer the time skip, everyone got stronger, but relative to each other all the characters are the same. Sure Sakura was able to beat up a guy who was as strong as an old lady, but Naruto beat the crap out of that dude who who could seperate his limbs or whatever, and Sasuke beat the crap out of exploding dude, snake guy, Frank, and Itachi. See Pink haired chick is still useless. She got kind of good, but everyone else just got better.

Ok maybe the children won't want to kill each other with weapons after watching Naruto, I will admit that is my weakest point, but My other points still stand up after all these years.
No one can deny the obvious similarities between NAruto and harry potter. In fact the first guy I argued with thought Harry Potter ripped off Naruto. Let's look at the character analogues
Naruto= Harry Potter
Sasuke= Malfoy
Pink haired chick= Hermione
Jiraiya = Sirius black
Kakashi = Snape
Snake dude= Voldemort
Need I go on...

ALso no one can deny that Naruto did glorify cheating on tests in that one episode near the beginning.

My points still stand strong, like my burning hatred of that stupid ninja kid.

Don't insult Kakashi.Harry Potter is the most stupid film I ever saw.BTW if you don't like Naruto and some of the others do,why are you trying to convince us that it is stupid.

 
At March 14, 2008 11:34 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

First of all Naruto has the 9 tailed fox in him so he is extremly strong with it.In fact he is strong without it so with it...Second Sasuke is from a special clan with special abilities.Sakura has no natural abilities but comparing her with what shi could do before(nothing) and what she can do now she has become quite strong.Besides she isnt all that impostant because the main character is Naruto and Sasuke`s story is right behind so Sakura isnt so important (lets not argue about her i dont like her much).

About the cheating on tests.First they clealy say in the anime that cheating is bad and only shit does it (or something like that) and the situation is different.They r ninjas and they have these abilities so I think bigger children that watch it realise that and smaller (like i said before) dont pay much attention and they forget it after the anime ends.Besides when u think about it only a very few people have never cheated even once in a test with or without watching Naruto.Infact almost everybody cheats on tests a little or a lot.Oh if a student watches that part with the cheating he/she wont start cheating if he usually doesnt do it.I mean if u know its wrong u want start doing it if u see it on tv.I mean people dont change just by watching tv.If u r good u r good.And those who usually cheat on tests theyll wont notice it at all.And about the little children that dont understand - oh they dont go to school yet so it doesnt matter and by the time they start to go they would have already forgot it or theyll be interested in other things like another anime,film.comedy or girlfriends and boyfriends.

And lastly about naruto being similar to hary potar.About that i dont have much to say cus i hadnt read any of the books.I just once saw a part of one of the movies and i didnt like it.I mean it is so dark and sad.But i still dont think the characters are similar.There stories (about the life of each character) are different.The how world is dofferent.In Naruto there are ninjas and in potar there r magicians (i guess u like it) and so on and so on.Besides when u think about it everything on tv is similar.Like soap operas everything is the same (she loves him but he loves another and the third is going to have a baby from him ect.) only with different characters.Kind of the same is about animes - there r good guys there r bad guys, some stuff happens and some fighting and in the end the good guys win(but ive noticed in most Japanese productions a lot of the good guys die before they defeat the bad guys I guess japanese children r smarter or i dont know how to put it see live much more real or something).

So thats what i can answer.And y didnt say how old r u and from which country u r?

 
At March 15, 2008 1:25 AM, Blogger Rabbit-man said...

I was never arguing over whether sakura was important, I was saying that the show is sexist because the women don't do anything and are useless. You affirm my point. Thanks

Also the Harry potter and Naruto stories are very similar. THey both feature an orphan who helped to defeat a great evil as an infant who is an outcast from society. VOldemort, and Orochimaru are basically the same dude, if you were to shave Orochimaru's head and get rid of the makeup he would look alot like the movie version of voldemort. Voldemort speaks to snakes, and controls them, Orochimaru speaks to snakes and controls them. Both have become masters of the dark side of their profession, Ninjary Witchcraft. (Possible spoiler here for both HP and Naruto, so don't say I didn't warn you) Seriously look up SIrius black, he's Harry Potter's godfather he is the closest thing to a father figure in Potter's life, and he dies a tragic death at the hands of the main villain. SOunds alot like Jiraiya doesn't he?

TO LOL:
I wrote an article stating my opinion, and you all are saying I'm wrong. WHat I am doing is defending my point, I'm not trying to make you hate Naruto... Or am I?
Also I really don't care if you hated the Harry Potter films. I kind of dislike them also.

First of all i am not saying that women r useless in naruto.Sakura doesnt defeat a lot of enemies but she has saved a lot of people with her medical jutsu.And lot about Tsunade?She has become the fifth hokage so that makes her pretty strong and she proves it when fighting Orochimaru.Besides there was an episode when Tsunade became the hokage and Shikamaru saw her he wasnt happy that she is a woman.He said that he doesnt like girls much because they boss men around.Than his father said that thats why women r so important for men because if they werent there who knows in what trouble will men run to.So that proves that Naruto isnt sexist and it isnt trying to make us think that women r useless.(They actually say that women r about carying for men,like with their medical jutsu and like Shikamarus father himself admits that without his life he would be lost, just like in the real world!!!!)

I dont understand why r we argueing about Naruto being ,or not, similar to HP.I mean lots of films ,cartoons, tv series and shows r similar.Take for exaple The rangers.I mean there are virual rangers,power rangers , ect.And they r so similar to each other the only differens is the characters` names and the powers everything else is the sam - all of them transform,they can fight,have powers there r always bad and good guys,someone from the good guys quits being aranger and then come back to save the others.The same is with films cartoons and tv shows.There have always been similar things in all of the cartoons.In most of them u have the four (five) elements - water,earth,air,fire,(lightning).And lots of other things like that.Besides snakes r said to be the most evil things on Earth and thats why they are used to represent a lot of bad guys in the movies and cartoons.

well u should know that this isnt the first time something like that happened(sand accident nor imitating cartoons).Here are a few links with accidents from kids imitating something they saw on tv:
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/115252/child_dies_while_attempting_to_imitate.html

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=611232

and there r more (unfortunately) but my computer cant open the sites so i will just say what i read : a kid has died while imitating superman and he tried to fly and jump out of the window ;another one has died when imitating Batman (i couldnt see how).

And here is a link where u can see other sand accidents
http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/06/21/like_surf_sand_can_kill_says_doctor/ I mean there is reason the kids would want to dig a hole.its for imitating a cartoon a documentary a film etc.

I really didnt know up until now that there r so many accidents when imitating tv programmes.Its very unfortunate.But i guess that they r children and they dont understand that is why it is the parents` responsibility to watch out for them.And when u think about it every cartoon has "dangerous stuff" in it.So if we want kids not to kill themselfs we either have to stop all cartoons or stop kids from watching tv at all.Which nowadays is almost imposible because who now to lot crazier and stupeder and more dangerous things children will get up to from boredom.

If u think there is a cartoon without a little violence then be my guest and make one(whivh has to be interesting too)

Anyway when we think about it TV is ruining America`s children and everything they show on it (cartoons ,films ,series etc.).So this argument is totaly useless.

Besides I want to say that Americans are the madest people in the world(i mean not in the good way).Like only 1 of 1000 americans is normal and all the others are mentaly sick.No wondar there are so many spychologists in America.Oh, by the way no hard feelings (if you are from America cus i am not)but that is the truth.I havent done research to prove it but just watching American productions u can see what they think about the world.

Look all the examples you people provided are of non americans dieing. None of that shit happened to an American (except the Naruto thing). THe batman and superman stuff don't count because those are comic books.

ALso if 1 in 1000 americans are sane, then that means there is a good chance that I am insane. You know what that would mean? Yeah it would mean that you are arguing with an insane person.

First of all there r cartoons of superman and i am not sure but i think there was a cartoon of batman too.

Second i dont quite get what do u mean.R u saying that Americans arent mentaly sick and the whole world is sick because they watch cartoons or that cartoons r bad for everybody no matter if an american or not.

Plus if i consider your logic about an insane person talking to an insane person that would mean that there r no normal people on this Earth at all!!!!

Wow anonymous it only took you three tries to properly post a web address! The internet must be very proud of you!

Also when you say
"it's not violent and interesting."

Do you mean the show is not violent and not interesting, or that the show is not violent but it is interesting? It's kind of very vague.

Lizi:
I've been saying for a while that everybody but me is insane, but I guess I wasn't clear on that earlier.

I think I was pointing out that non-american cartoons are bad for everybody, also Public executions, that stuff is bad too. But the batman cartoon is awesome i think I reviewed it here once. It's hard for me to tell.

Well I couldnt see what that cartoon is about (my computer is not so good) but no matter how 'unviolent' a cartoon could be u never know what could come up at a kids mind.

Also we have argued about this around 2 or 3 weeks (or at least with me).This is why there r forums to talk or argue , right.

Rabbit-man :
I would not say that American cartoons arent bad for the children.They are!Like what about The Simpsons?In my country the commercial about it says that The Simpsons way of living is the americans dream.I mean come on!!!!Is that your dream to do nothing all day and make a how town miserable just so u can watch porn on TV and go and get drunk in a pub.I hate that cartoon!!!!And no offense but I dont like America , too.

The Simpsons (at least in it's earlier seasons) is a satire of American society if you believe that it depicts an idealization of American society you are clearly missing the joke. No wonder you don't like it. Nobody wants to be a fat stupid slob like homer, even if somebody is a fat stupid drunken slob they don't want to be compared to Homer. THe american ideal is to be fat stupid, and RICH!!! The simpsons clearly aren't rich people, so they don't represent the American ideal.

Now you can hate Family Guy all you want that show has no soul, or point.

Also Europe is the only place that I can think of where you can watch hardcore pornography on the public airwaves. Besides you don't get porn from the TV you get it from the internet.

Ok the simpsons movie is the only instance of nudity in the show(they have shown butts on numerous occasions, but that doesn't really count), and it is nowhere near as bad as Japanese Hentai, or even non-hentai anime.
You are confusing Nudity with porn. THere is absolutely no porn in the simpsons. If you think there is please point out an example, I've seen alot of the episodes, and I don't remember any porn in the simpsons. Maybe they talked about porn once (I don't think they did, but there have been over 400 episodes there is a possibility the word made it into at least one), but they certainly did not depict it, at least not in an explicit sense.

Actually Bart found the adult channel and started to show it off to the neighbor kids. It was the one where Homer got free cable.

But they didn't show anything, (just saw the kid's reaction)and it was put in to make a point about unregulated television on cables.

Well the simpsons and the Japanese animes are similar they both have nudity and bad language so we cant say that only Japan makes such productions.Besides we were talking abou America and Europe werent we.So Japan does not count.

And actually what are we argueing about anyway?

And Anonymous on whose side r u in or u are writing for yoyrself (just for fun like me)?

Honestly I don't know what we are arguing about anymore. I think you were trying to justify Naruto by saying america has stuff just like it and I was all "Oh no you didn't" and then something happened we reversed sides and started arguing contradictory points to what we previously said. Anonymous came in and said something three times. I got confused and stopped responding for a while, and then you asked what was going on.

Maybe anonymous can figure out what's going on.

Gah anonymous. Is that supposed to annoy me or something? You know if everybody watched Naruto through a fansub or fandub (I seriously hope those don't exist) then the show would fail. YOu are contributing absolutely NOTHING to the people who make Naruto. So I encourage you to just watch fansubs on youtube. IN fact get all your friends to only watch it on youtube or wherever else (I say youtube, because it's the easiest one to use), and help kill Naruto.

Help me destroy that stupid yellow haired little punk anonymous. Watch his inane little adventures on the internet.

Muhaha...MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

ALright anonymous I finally watched that kamikaze kinky jeanne show you were talking about.

Well actually I didn't watch it, i was horrified by the opening, I think it's a little too cute for me.

And that show isn't that innocent that stupid girl was blabbering about how she steals shit, and whatnot.

I guess this round of debates has ended. A special thanks goes out to anonymous, Lizi, Lol, pretty curious, commander awesome, and Ralphie for all their comments.

TO all future dudes who want to argue: BRING IT ON I STILL HATE NARUTO!!!!

 
At April 11, 2008 12:17 PM, Blogger lizi said...

Oh no.This is not over yet!I couldnt write for some while but anyway (for this month I will write only at weekend) I still love Naruto and nothing u say will make me change my mind!!!!

In fact right now I am gonna watch it!

I watch Naruto on the Net too because they dont show the newest series here(if I lived in Japan i wouldnt miss it on TV) and the ones they show on jetix i have watched but most importantly are subed at my language and frankly it sounds awful.And about the series on cartoon network in here they dont show Naruto at all I dont know about America.

But now when i think about it i guess Naruto is popular in America since u know it (i mean your profil says u r 19 years and at school some of my friends says that cartoons as in all of them r stuped and childish) so i guess u dont hate it as much as u say.What dont u like so much in it anyways?

 
At April 13, 2008 9:36 PM, Blogger Rabbit-man said...

My profile doesn't say that I'm at school. It says that I'm a pro wrestler.

Also I don't hate anime I wrote a bunch of crappy reviews about anime that I like so you can't say that I hate anime. I just felt like ranting against Naruto the day that I wrote this article, and people try to say I'm wrong so I argue with them.
I will say this, and it is the closest I will get to complementing Naruto Ahem.. At least Naruto is better than Inuyasha. Yes Inuyasha sucked ass. It was the worst show ever, and went on way too long. From a storytelling perspective, Naruto at least tries to introduce new villains and storylines, but Inuyasha kept recycling the same crap over and over again, and the characters just got stale, and lame as time went on.

 
At April 19, 2008 5:34 AM, Blogger lizi said...

I dont know if that is a complement for Naruto because I havent watched that other anime u talked about.

And i meant , before , that the bigger u get the less u like anime (it isnt like that with me but with my friends it is).And since your profile says u r 19 years old I assumed that u dont like animes at all.

 
At April 20, 2008 6:37 PM, Blogger Rabbit-man said...

I do like animes I like all of miyazaki's work, cowboy bebop, fullmetal alchemist, satoshi kon's work, and probably some other stuff that I am forgetting to list.

I don't think that you grow out of animes as you get older, I just think that when alot of people are younger they watch a show like DBZ or Naruto that are cliche ridden, or poorly made (Naruto actually has pretty good animation), but appeal to our baser instincts due to the violence, and good guy comes back from behind stories. These animes make the children believe they are special, because if social outcasts like Naruto or Goku can rise up and have a special destiny or powers, maybe the children are special too, but as the kids grow up they look back at those animes and realize that they are really a giant barrel full of shit. Some of those kids may discover deeper more complex anime and will retain their interest in the medium as they age, but most will never discover the better shows and will end up hating anime as adults.

At April 24, 2008 3:54 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Ugh, these points sound more like lines directly from baptist minister than they do from an independent analyst. You even have the nerve to refer to them as if undisputable facts. Here is my analysis of your points.

""1. Naruto won by 10%, 220,000 chakura, despite after most of the shonen jump popularity polls in the last several weeks on RealClearPolitics, including its RCP all-chakra average, showed her ahead by single digits and dropping.""

Hillary only won by ten percent if you insist on rounding up. Otherwise, she garnered 9.2% of the chakura. Granted, the distinction is minor, but with all the hullabaloo as to her goal of earning a double digit margin it is an important distinction to make.

""2. Sasuke tried hard to win the Konoha village, campaigned intensely throughout the Konoha village for most of the last six weeks -- and was trying to win, not just lose a narrow margin.""

Sasuke certainly tried his little heart out to make this Konoha village competitive, but Sakura grossly misrepresents the progress the from Konoha village made in HOKAGE. At one point, Sasuke was shonen jump popularity polling with over a 30% deficit. It is important to remember that HOKAGE is a Konoha village that has deep advantages towards Naruto, and it is quite a feat that the Sasuke campaign brought it into single digits.

""3. He spent $11 million on media -- about three times more than Naruto.""

Sasuke started in a huge hole. As I mentioned before, his chakra numbers in HOKAGE were once abysmal. His loss here is less evidence of inept advertising and more evidence of the disadvantage he had going into this contest.


""4. Most of his ads were personal negative attack ads against Naruto, meaning attacks on her character and integrity.

5. There were no personal attack ads run by Naruto in Hidden sand.""

Ehh... there isn't much I can say in response to these two points other than the fact that they are part of the reason why Sakura's claim of undisputable facts is so laughable.

""6. Sasuke hasn't won a single major industrial Konoha village that historically constitute the key "battleground" Konoha villages for both parties, i.e., the Konoha villages in the last three or four presidential ninja ways have switched back and forth between the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates.""

While true, I fail to see how this point has any bearing on Sasuke's ability to win the hokage. Chunin exam results are almost never indicative of a candidate's progress in the ninja way. Need I remind us all of Jiraiya's dominance of swing Konoha villages in the Chunin exam and his subsequent failure to match those trends in the general ninja way.

""The reason that he lost can be found in the demographic data: He lost -- and Naruto won -- by substantial margins blue collar and middle class white chakurars earning under $50,000 a year, senior citizens, rural chakurars, Orochimaru chakurars, and women chakurars -- all core constituencies in the Democratic base that must be won if a Democrat is to win the Hidden Leaf. ""

Yet again, Chunin exam results are a horrible indicator of general ninja way potential. The vast, vast majority of chakurars who cast a ballot for Naruto would do the same for Sasuke in the general ninja way. ALso of importance is the fact that it is the people who do not chakura in the primaries who have the greatest sway in who wins the general ninja way. Chunin exam candidate loyalties are far weaker in the average eneral ninja way chakurar.

""8. Sasuke has lost these same demographic groups in major Konoha villages that Naruto won. There is a factual pattern of his weakness among these demographic groups in virtually every Chunin exam Konoha village that cannot be disputed.""

Whew, a break! You can pretty much just copy and paste my responses to 6 and 7 here.

""9. Sasuke is currently in a dead heat with Voldemort, according to a recent respected chakra, in Massachusetts (actually, the results were Tsunade 46% and Naruto 44%), while Naruto leads in Massachusetts by 15%. ""

This particular point is kinda odd considering he contradicts himself within it. How can Naruto have 44% as well as a 15% lead?

""10. Current shonen jump popularity polls show Naruto runs ahead of Voldemort nationally or dead even -- and Sasuke runs only dead even. For example, in the most recent USA Today national general ninja way chakra, Naruto leads Tsunade by +6; Sasuke leads by less than the margin of error, +2.""

This one is a stretch. Shonen jump popularity polling trends indicate there isn't much of a concrete national advantage between either candidate. It is very easy to pick an isolated chakra and show either candidate as ahead.

Well that was fun. It is kinda cool that we get a picture to match with the post now.
THanks for passing the article along.

Who said I hate anime? I just hate Naruto!! I hate that stupid little aryan freak.

I mean look at my other posts dude I clearly like alot of animes. Also the american dream isn't about hating anime, it's about hating people different from you. (Note I am being sarcastic here, I have to actually note it since nobody seems to be able to distinguish sarcasm from rabid insanity.)

And if you forgot why I hate naruto I suggest you read the article again.

Also where are all you people coming from is this blog linked on a forum or something? or are you looking up Naruto is ruining the children on google. Please tell me how you discovered this blog.

Naruto is awesome. yeah it might inspire some (a very small percentage) of young boys to be 'violent' but most of them are smart enough to realize its fantasy and a form of good entertainment. and what negative outcome could ever come out of themes such as 'never give up no matter what'. in fact Naruto isn't just popular with 12 year old boys but GIRLS & boys up to the age of 20 and many are dedicated to the manga and anime. I DO HOWEVER agree with how Naruto tends to be sexcist. You can't really deny it because it is there. I understand why though because it's Shounen which is directed at boys but the creator should consider all the female fans of the series and up the girl poewr a little :)

And I realize just now how funny everybody's comments are(I mean in the good way)!You've all got a good sense of humour!Carry on with it!!No please!!!That's another reason why I write here.
