I've gotta say, Im getting kind of annoyed with some of the situations in naruto. For anyone who doesn't know, god from the machine describes an event in a storyline where for seemingly no reason a situation is resolved. Happens alot in sci fi when something makes no sense and they use the phrase, "thank god we invented the so and so, or thank god jim had his disruptor shield or whatever."
I am starting to get annoyed with alot of the naruto situations since these random assed jutsus get pulled that will save a character for no reason and it ruins the suspense. Im thinking most recently when sasuke fought with the akatsuki. It was so predictable, the comic sets it up like the demolitions master, I forgot his name I think Daedara, was going to unleash his ultimate jutsu and I'm just saying in my head oh sasuke will obviously escape because of a dumb jutsu. Then they pretend sasuke was blown up and of course anyone whose read this comic knows right away its bs, and then all of a sudden sasuke appears and says oh I just opened upa giant snake, hypnotized him jumped in his body, teleported him and voila gotta love those time space dimensional vortexes. I know this is kinda understandable but it happens so much. Every time I see a character die now, theres no suspense because i KNOW its going to be a damn jutsu clone. Everytime theres and explosion I KNOW the character just teleported. I loved the begining of the series when they'd actually explaint he mechanics or show the thoughts of the characters as they fought or escaped giving it some sense.
Iunno, I know I'm ranting but its because I love this comic and its making me suspend disbelief more and more and it really has become formulaic. Christ, Orochimaru isnt even dead, kabuto just randomly appears and is like watsup dudes I grafted a corpses arm on my severed arm and shebang now Im being possesed by his dead soul WTF. Heck I was able to predict all the fights since naruto grew older and I mean PREDICT, like every aspect, when he'd clone, how he'd lose, how he'd unleash some new jutsu and how hed make a comeback. Anyway sorry bout the rant, its just I hate to see a manga I love start to lose quality (INMO) anyone thoughts?
