10 Times Fans of Naruto Were Disappointed

Naruto achieved a lot of highs during the course of its 15-year run, propelling it to the top of the battle-shonen genre. Although these elements of the tale are few and few between, fans cannot help but believe they detract from the overall series.

Naruto initially aired as part of the Shonen Jump roster in 1999. Naruto achieved a lot of highs during the course of its 15-year run, propelling it to the top of the battle-shonen genre. Naruto has enthralled fans all around the world and has spawned one of the most fervent fandoms in anime history.Despite its critical praise and popularity, Naruto is not immune to the vagaries of controversy. Naruto has had its fair share of disappointing moments over the span of 700 chapters. Although these elements of the tale are few and few between, fans cannot help but believe they detract from the overall series.

10. Naruto took much too long to abandon Sakura

Naruto has had a strange infatuation with romantics from the beginning of the series. Naruto was madly in love with Sakura and would yearn for her for years, despite her emotions for their comrade Sasuke. For fans, this was arguably one of the most aggravating elements of the anime, since they perceived Naruto’s devotion as baseless.

Fans couldn’t understand why Naruto was so smitten with Sakura, despite the fact that she often seemed to disdain or take Naruto for granted. Fans were dissatisfied that even after the character went through a time jump, he still seemed to be obsessed with an unrequited infatuation.

9. Sakura vs. Ino Was A Total Letdown

Sakura and Ino were a Chunin Exams duel that no fan was really interested in going into. At this time in the series, Sakura’s popularity was waning, and nothing about Ino appeared to pique viewers’ attention.Despite some excellent combat choreography, the conflict is frequently bogged down by melodramatic flashbacks that do nothing to urge viewers to be motivated by the events on screen. This battle would be simply another example of Naruto’s poor assortment of female characters disappointing fans.

8. Kaguya appeared out of nowhere.

For years, the anime did all it could to construct the tension centered on Obito and Madara Uchiha in the run-up to the Great Ninja War, which would conclude this series. These two individuals posed an intimidating menace that not only gave the major characters a run for their money, but also had a significant emotional effect on fan favorites like Kakashi and Hashirama.

Naruto’s ending might have been fantastic, but many fans think that the abrupt and rash choice to switch to an unheard-of adversary out of nowhere destroyed everything the tale had previously been working toward.

7. Sasuke and Sakura Shouldn’t Have Married

Sakura seemed to be well on her way to become a mature, fully formed character who fans might finally get interested in at the start of Naruto’s final arcs. She had resisted her crush for Sasuke, even threatening to murder him at one point. When Sasuke chose to atone for his misdeeds at the last minute, fans were shocked to see that Sakura had not only forgiven Sasuke, but also married and had a kid with him.

For many fans, this undid much of Sakura’s previous character growth, reverting her to the obnoxious condition they believed she was in all those years before.

6. A War Criminal Naruto Talk-No-Jutsu’d

Talk-no-Jutsu refers to one of Naruto’s most recognizable cliches. It might be anticipated that at the conclusion of a climax arc, Naruto would speak it out with his antagonist and resolve their disagreements with an uplifting speech, regardless of who the enemy was or what they did.

While this often resulted in wonderful moments that fans adore, like as Gaara’s repentance, it finally became a little too predictable. Furthermore, people struggled to accept Naruto’s ability to call someone like Obito a friend after almost destroying the whole world.

5. Everyone was irritated by Sakura’s phony confession.

When asked what their least favorite moment in Naruto was, the clear majority would choose the scene when Sakura professed to be in love with Naruto. This was a deceptive effort by Sakura to stop Naruto from pursuing Sasuke at the outset of the Great Ninja War.

While she had good intentions, fans couldn’t help but be irritated by the obvious deception she told in order to abuse Naruto’s love for her. It was a moment that saddened fans worldwide since it demonstrated that Sakura and Naruto were on opposing wavelengths at this juncture in their character journeys.

4. Deidara’s Self-Explosion Survived Sasuke

Sasuke vs. Deidara was a battle that no fan anticipated to see at any time in the tale. Other than crossing one other’s way by happenstance, these two have no personal history or motive to quarrel. It was a battle fueled by a personal grudge on Deidara’s part, yet it still managed to be interesting.

Fans were only let down at the end when Deidara used his most explosive attack, dying himself in the process, to take down Sasuke. To many viewers, the revelation that Sasuke just hid within his summoning snake and survived seemed undeserved.

3. Naruto Has Consistently Ignored Its Minor Characters

Given that the Chunin Exam Arc is still a popular favorite, it stands to reason that one of the most depressing elements of this series is how readily its supporting characters is forgotten. The Chunin Exams presented a plethora of secondary characters, each with their own set of jutsu and combat styles that might serve as ideal foils to the main cast.

Fans, on the other hand, often regard these characters as underappreciated or even forgotten. Characters like Shikamaru earned their time in the limelight, whilst characters like Shino were only given their due in devoted filler arcs.

2. The Power Creep Has Become More Intense

Naruto’s early arcs in its first half, long before Naruto Shippuden, were generally regarded as the series’ pinnacle by fans. To fans, this was a series about brutal hand-to-hand fighting amongst ninjas, with the odd energy strike in the form of jutsu. However, the balance between hand-to-hand combat and jutsu began to shift in favor of the latter.

Naruto and Sasuke were flying chakra mechs in samurai armor and shooting meteors at each other towards the conclusion of the series. The power creep was more than upsetting for fans of the grungy image of early Naruto.

1. Naruto and Sasuke Were Suddenly Selected by the prophecy

Throughout the majority of Naruto, many people saw the eponymous character as a self-made hero. These admirers admired Naruto for overcoming his terrible upbringing via perseverance and hard effort. As the plot progressed and it became evident how much of a “chosen one” Naruto was, these fans were more disillusioned.

The Great Ninja War was the apex of this, when it was revealed to Naruto and Sasuke that they were the reincarnations of two great ninjas doomed to battle each other throughout time.


Boruto: Learn why Sasuke and Naruto lost their importance

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a spin-off of Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto series, set years after the Fourth Great Ninja War’s conclusion. Although much has changed over the time jump, the essence of the story, from the ninjas to the ninja villages

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a spin-off of Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto series, set years after the Fourth Great Ninja War’s conclusion. Although much has changed over the time jump, the essence of the story, from the ninjas to the ninja villages, has remained the same. The largest change that fans have had to witness is the transition from an older generation of shinobi to a younger one, led by Naruto’s son, Boruto Uzumaki.

Boruto Uzumaki is the story’s protagonist, and he aspires to be a powerful shinobi who can defend the village and help the Hokage like Sasuke Uchiha, all while facing his own fate. Boruto is clearly his narrative and not that of the characters from the previous era, such as Naruto and Sasuke; nonetheless, the two are still vital to the plot’s progression and their importance to the fans remains important. Recently, though, the story appears to have made several dubious decisions that have a significant impact on the plot.

What Has Been Happening With Naruto And Sasuke?


Since the beginning of Boruto, Naruto and Sasuke have been pivotal characters in the story. It’s no surprise that both were extremely important to the ninja world as a whole, having climbed through the ranks in Naruto to become the two strongest shinobi in the entire shinobi history. Fans saw how Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha dealt with the Otsutsuki menace while also protecting their town in the Boruto film. As the Hokage and the Other Hokage, they’ve always had a responsibility to protect what’s obviously vital. Following the events of the film, the two were pivotal in every subsequent event, with Naruto fighting the likes of Delta and even defending the village from Jigen’s danger. The two had already been nerfed a lot by this point, but their relevance to the tale was still well-emphasized.

He even faced Isshiki Otsutsuki, the strongest known Otsutsuki to ever live, alongside Sasuke. Unfortunately, this conflict profoundly altered the characters, as Naruto Uzumaki lost Kurama and Sasuke lost his Rinnegan. While Isshiki was eventually subdued, the plot felt terribly forced and overly convenient in order for the new generation to take center stage at the expense of the previous. Naruto and Sasuke’s role in the tale has waned since then, and the two are scarcely prominent in their previous positions.

The Importance Of Naruto And Sasuke In The Story


It’s clear that the two aren’t as crucial to the plot as they previously were, and they probably won’t be in the future. When Naruto’s village was attacked, he wasn’t even able to protect his village against the threat of Code, let alone do anything useful. Instead, he needed Kawaki’s protection, which, as the Hokage, does not present a positive picture. Later, he was powerless to stop Kawaki from ripping a hole through his son’s chest. Naruto, although being the strongest and having the title of Hokage, did not live up to the hype. Naruto is clearly weaker than he has ever been, but he is the Hokage, and things are expected of him.

Sasuke, on the other hand, appears to have been treated even worse. Sasuke, unlike Naruto with the Baryon Mode, was not even given a proper send-off, and his Rinnegan was stolen from him in a foolish manner. Sasuke has had very little involvement in the plot since losing his eye. In nearly a year, all he’s done is seek down Code’s lair, and for someone who played such an important role in the Naruto series, it’s rather heartbreaking to witness. Without a question, Naruto and Sasuke are the face of the series. It is merely lazy writing for the author to weaken them greatly and use them cheaply in moments for the following generation to save. Worse, none of them seemed to have a definite function in the tale any longer. Naruto’s role as Hokage has shrunk because he can no longer protect his people, and Sasuke isn’t even allowed to participate in the narrative.

While it was necessary to make the new generation stronger in order for the tale to be fascinating, it is mind-boggling that it had to come at the expense of the old characters who are cherished by the fans. For the time being, things aren’t looking bright for either Naruto or Sasuke, and the two may end up being relegated to characters who require constant protection. Despite having Kishimoto on board as a writer, Boruto has taken an unexpected turn, but maybe things will improve for both Naruto and Sasuke.

Goku Gets the Father-Son Reunion He’s Always Deserved in Dragon Ball

In recent chapters of Dragon Ball Super, the Granolah story has revealed a lot about Bardock, beginning with the fact that Bardock was there during the attack on Granolah’s home world of planet Cereal

While most Dragon Ball Super fans are familiar with Goku’s father Bardock, Goku himself has not been that fortunate; his juvenile brain trauma has erased any memories he may have had of his parents. Plus, with the Saiyan race on the verge of extinction, there aren’t many people left to tell him tales of his father—but it seems that Goku will finally get to hear his father, if only for a little period.

In recent chapters of Dragon Ball Super, the Granolah story has revealed a lot about Bardock, beginning with the fact that Bardock was there during the attack on Granolah’s home world of planet Cereal. Bardock, on the other hand, stood up to the Heeters, who orchestrated the invasion, and saved a young Granolah and his Namekian guardian, Monaito, who would wind up being the planet’s sole survivors. He even faced Gas, the Heeter’s muscle, who has proved to be a challenging opponent for current Saiyans. Because it paints a kinder picture of Bardock than many fans had hoped for, this new narrative has sparked debate, as it indicates that Goku’s generosity stems from his father rather than from the early brain impairment that prevented him from conquering Earth.

Monaito shows up in Chapter 82 with a broken Scouter that he’s had for 40 years, saying it’s the one Bardock wore when he battled Gas. Vegeta is able to switch on the Scouter in the hopes of learning more about Gas’ flaws from the recordings in the device’s memory. They can play an audio clip of Bardock’s speech using Granolah’s eyepatch-robot Oatmeel. While the chapter ends before the dispute between Bardock and Gas can be settled, it does provide Goku the opportunity to hear his father’s voice for the first time, bringing back memories of the moments before he was thrown to Earth.

Although Goku has never been concerned about not knowing his parents, the sound of Bardock’s words seemed to have reawakened something deep inside him. With just a few panels, it’s evident that this is a pivotal moment for Goku. After all, Goku has always been shown as possessing a disposition that is diametrically opposed to the majority of Saiyans, even his own brother Raditz, who almost killed him when they first met. Many fans think Goku banged his head when he first arrived on Earth, and it’s plausible that even Goku believes the same thing. However, this notion has the unintended effect of implying that Earth’s greatest hero is just the product of chance, and that everything that makes Goku “good” is essentially a flaw by Saiyan standards. This shift in Bardock’s personality is important, but the potential for Goku to learn about his father’s actions is maybe even more so; Goku is no longer the lone “good” Saiyan, and whether he cares or not, he can be certain that his father would be happy of the life he’s led on Earth.

Shonen characters often have tense relationships with their dads, who are typically absent, inattentive, or downright malicious. Goku’s absence of father concerns has distinguished him, but this incident does not change that. Hopefully, Goku and Dragon Ball Super can figure out a means to save Bardock’s message so that Gohan and Goten may connect with their history as well.

In a new scene, Dragon Ball Super returns to Raditz

Raditz was the only member of the family that was a stereotypically aggressive Saiyan, according to Goku’s history of fighting for what’s right

Goku leads Gas off planet in Dragon Ball Super Chapter 82, and, like he has with many of his opponents in the past, while fighting Gas, he is simultaneously attempting to figure out why. He’s perplexed as to why someone so powerful would mindlessly obey someone else’s commands, and when Gas attempts to explain that he’ll do anything for Elec because of all his brother has done for him, Goku isn’t sure he understands. When it comes down to it, Goku is very self-centered, and consequently has no true links to his biological family.

He has no meaningful links to his Saiyan background except than his kids. So Goku bringing up the fact that his own brother Raditz attempted to murder him once was unexpected. He was attempting to persuade Gas that his brother may not be acting in his best interests, so he went deep and, for the first time in his life, thought on his own family. It’s something we’re beginning to see throughout this arc, and Goku’s stronger connection to his Saiyan heritage appears to be the next stage in his development.

What are your thoughts? After all this time, how do you feel about Goku bringing up Raditz? What do you think will happen if Goku spends more time thinking about his family?

Why Raditz is different from his family

Raditz, Goku’s elder brother, is the most ridiculously expendable character in Dragon Ball history. Raditz makes Krillin appear like the Omni King, from his relevance to the story to his strength level. It required a Goku and Piccolo team-up and Goku’s death to beat him, who was introduced as the most powerful enemy yet whose Goku’s-alien-brother background flipped the whole series on its head. Dragon Ball Super has stated that Raditz was also the family’s black sheep, after spending much of Dragon Ball Z as a postmortem joke before being forgotten totally.

By having a four-year-old ring his bell and then failing to escape a nelson grip by a man with damaged ribs without thinking to merely fly away, DBZ soon turned Raditz into a joke. When Vegeta and Nappa arrive on Earth, they plant Saibamen monsters in the earth, declaring the creatures to be as powerful as Raditz. Raditz was so feeble that his death had no value for his friends since they could just generate more of him. It’s no surprise that Nappa and Vegeta would nickname him “Radish-boy.”

If there’s one thing fans of Dragon Ball Z should remember from the beginning of the series, it’s that Raditz is a jerk. Raditz is a unique DBZ villain that has had no atonement or character growth. He is a nasty jerk who would have no problem murdering his own brother or nephew. Of course, he was typical of Saiyans of the time, merciless and ruthless in his pursuit of number one. Nappa was the same way, and it took Vegeta a long time to mature past his harsh Saiyan temperament.

Surprisingly, a flashback in Dragon Ball Super: Broly and the events of Chapter 77 of the Super manga have shown that Raditz is the only member of his family that is incapable of feeling sympathy. Gine, his mother, is regarded for being a rare, gentle Saiyan who chose to concentrate on assisting people rather than fighting. When he concerned for Planet Vegeta’s safety, his father, Bardock, demonstrated something approximating a conscience by moving a newborn Goku off-world. During the Saiyan invasion of Planet Cereal, he also saved the lives of Granolah and his mother, claiming that it was the proper thing to do.

Raditz was the only member of the family that was a stereotypically aggressive Saiyan, according to Goku’s history of fighting for what’s right. Perhaps Raditz’s attitude and determination to murder Goku in Dragon Ball Z stems from childhood hatred, since Gine and Bardock may have been more concerned about their infant Kakarot. Gine and Bardock, on the other hand, did not seem to dislike Raditz, since when Bardock inquired about him after a mission, Gine proudly stated that Raditz was fighting with Prince Vegeta.
