All throughout the manga i've seen characters of impressive ability. Neiji with his genius and nearly impenetrable defense, Rock lee with his overwhelming strength and speed and Shikamaru's brilliant stratagems. Sauskes most recent battle with his brother Itachi was very impressive even if your not fond of his character. Each and every one of these guys has impressed us from one time to another. Some of the best fights in the series were when these guys fought the sound ninja.Naruto was present during all of these battles and was the least impressive out of all of them. Dont get me wrong, i like naruto, i like that he's the underdog and that he's supposed to prove everyone wrong.but how long are we supposed to wait?
Hokage's usually show promise at a young age. Jiraiya,Orochimaru and Tsunade were'nt much older than Naruto before they became legendary. Rocky was the was the ultimate underdog movie and they did'nt make us wait years for to see him become the best.My point is the name of the book is Naruto. I should'nt be more impressed with secondary characters than the main character himself. I'm sorry Kishimoto, if you want Naruto to be more respected have him get his act together and start showing people why he deserves to be hokage, simply saying you're going to be hokage dosent mean you should be. Because shadow clones and rasengan aren't going to cut it any more. And please no more Kyuubi powerups during fight's. I'd rather Naruto walk the long road to hokage without depending on something with nearly unlimited chakra.I want him to succeed,but he is surrounded by people who do alot more with alot less. It would show people that hes more than just a container.
