^Silliness? I donīt really think itīs silly.... (okay,some scenes really are,but the storyline etc. are pretty good if you ask me...)
But I donīt want to make a discussion out of this. But youīre welcomed to visit he OP section anytime if you ever read it again ^^
the argument about anime is justifiable, i also feel the same thing. however, about the manga, your argument is not objective., i think it's going upward and forward. and it's definitely nice to see that naruto is now powerful character rather than when he was Sasuke shadow and Sasuke Bro Freaks. Naruto has definitely gotten its foothold and character slowly develops. furthermore, the story begins to unfold and there are still lots of mysteries waiting to be discovered (like this week chapter).
