Default How good is the manga?

Sorry if this has been asked many times. The thread's description said "spoilers abound" and I didn't want to read through and spoil the story for myself.

I'm currently on the last subbed anime episode that has been released(On Hulu.com) and enjoying it(aside from it taking forever to come out and not much happening in each episode). As someone who generally doesn't like manga, but wants to get more story, is THIS manga good enough to keep me entertained?

Try to answer objectively from my point of view, because I know there are some diehard manga fans. If I generally like to see the action played out in the anime, will this manga portray enough action for me on the page to be able to keep reading it?

I appreciate the answers.

Hmmm-If you're worried about it, you should probably stick to the anime. I'm the type of person who has to know what's going to happen next as soon as I can, so naturally I read the manga. The thing is though, even if you read the manga you will have to wait for the next chapter to come out every week, so you'll be in the same situation as you were with the anime, only you will be further along in the story.

Personally, I love the manga-Naruto is my favorite manga/anime out there (/inb4 haters saying how downhill the series has gone and it's a piece of crap). I have bought every English volume available-so I guess I'm kind of biased. The benefits to manga are-nice art, NO FILLER, and Kishi can draw action well. You will be missing the musical score, voices, sound effects, and the anime can flesh things out better some times as well (like longer action sequences-although it rarely deviates on this). I guess the only danger to sticking with the anime is reading spoilers in comments.

Yeah, I've noticed a lot of people follow the manga, real life friends included so it does kind of suck that I'm a little behind. From what you have said though I should probably stick to the anime since I will be waiting regardless.

As far as the story though, I don't see how it's going downhill or heard anyone say that. I thought it was universally accepted that Shippuden was a huge improvement over the previous seasons. Unless people just aren't liking the last arc, but story and action wise it's been constant so idk.

Thanks for the response, btw.

I agree!!!

Naruto is my favorite Anime and Manga!!!

I would also add that in the Manga action can sometimes be a bit harder to understand but it is still really good!!!

But the good thing about Manga is that there is no censorship!!!

I don't want to spoil you but there are some scenes that will probably be censored in the Anime!!!

Hmm. Maybe I should read the manga after I watch the episode then in case there is missing stuff.

It really depends on who you ask. I love the manga. While others will say that Kishimoto can't write a story to save his life. If his storytelling is that bad, then what keeps them still reading a bad manga? If the haters think that they can work with the editors and deadlines to produce a manga almost every week and be as successful as Kishimoto, I would like to see them try.

No, don't read the Manga

In my personal opinion, it will ruin how you perceive the Anime, and if that's what you prefer to watch, you are only a couple years away from the end of Naruto anyway, so just sit tight and enjoy yourself, you become naturally cynical if you read the Manga D:

Default Re: How good is the manga?

You'd have to make the choice here:

If you stick to the anime without the manga, you'd have a longer time left to enjoy the Naruto series since the manga is closer to ending...

But the downside is, if you stick to the anime and by some chance you die, even if the manga was finished by then, the anime wouldn't and your soul might be suffering from not knowing what happened in the end...

see my point? so choose wisely!

I used to watch Anime. Now im Manga fan and dont like the latest Anime videos at all. THey are fillers, the effects are worse than before and so on. I find manga way more thrilling than anime at this rate.

i was like you i didnt read manga at all then when i found the naruto anime i watch it all which was luckily up to the last episode of the pain arc and i had to know what was next so i read the manga and now i much prefer the manga to me its just better in a way i cant really put my finger on maybe its because thats the way the author intended the story to be told and you dont have to put up with filler the downside though is i dont much like the anime anymore i find my self skipping through most episodes and i flat out refuse to watch almost any filler..... maybe read the manga up to where you have already watched and see if you like it any better

Default Re: How good is the manga?

I never ever read ANY mangas until around a year ago, when I ACCIDENTALLY found out that Shaman King has TWO stories in it - the anime and the manga, with quite different endings.
This led to me getting interested in the CONCEPT of reading manga vs merely watching anime.
And as of Naruto - if I didn't read manga (I think I started around Tobi being de-masked), I'd lose a LOT of HAPPY moments I had from Naruto - maybe even abandoning the series entirely.
(AGAIN, cause I've dropped WATCHING it around the middle of Part 1 - then got reintroduced to it through a youtube video on Confession. You can guess, WHY I support my OTP. )
