Well. I have just finished buying the series of graphic novels for Naruto (volumes 1 -27) :jump: (I think it's 27 of them). Anyway, I am definately done purchasing graphic novels for a little while, merely because it is quite a monetary investment, but I wanted to hear from those who have read the series that comes after this (which, in America, arrives in this coming March). :thumbsup: :thumbsdow How does the new series rate? Is it better, worse, more action, creative, original? why or why not? :?:

The anime is divided into two parts, but the manga is continuous (divided only by the Kakashi Gaiden). Thus you won't notice too drastic of a difference overall. Though the characters are older, the nature of the story does not really change.

However, many people will tell you that Naruto goes downhill during the second part. I'm of the opinion that this is only true in the broadest of senses; the first part had some weak moments and the second part has some strong ones. But by this point I'm essentially reading Naruto to see how it ends.

The Shippuden anime, I find, is very slow paced compared to the first part. The manga is too, sometimes (then again, I'm coming from the point of having to wait a week for the next chapter). Overall, however, there isn't much of a difference other than that they're older and have some new abilities. I think that there are some things in the second part of the manga that could have been introduced much earlier to have more significance, but at the same time there are things that do play an important role that seem trivial in the first part.
