Its has to be the Sasuke Rescue Arc without a doubt. Not only did we see the gennin showing off the new powers and the return of the Sand siblings but also new flashback of the Uchiha Clan before they were killed. It also doesn't hurt, when we can see the rematch that everyone has been waiting for. Naruto vs Sasuke.

The zabuza/haku arc. Back then, there was still some comedy, there was some character development and it didn't feel as dragged out as the following arcs. The villians were no throw away characters like the sound four. Besides, the plot focused on the most important characters, so everyone got his fair share of time.
Even Naruto, the character I dislike most, was more likeable at that time, as he messed up quite often. There was more character interaction than in the latter chapters.
During this first arc, I thought of Naruto as Dragonball without it's weak points. In my opinion, it went downhill form that point on.

I hated the zabuza arc...The whole flash back of inari was horse dung. The whole flashback of haku was horse dung..(The whole Im his weapon bullocks was just too much). The fight was crap..I mean white screen(mist) with lots of talking about silent killing is not what I would call action. Thats why I dislike shikimaru's fights too.

The only good part about that arc was when kakashi and zabuza finally busted out the jutsu's against each other on the first fight. When Naruto kyubi'd/sasuke awakened sharingan. Kakashi chidori and zabuza kill gouto.

BTW, sakura crying her eyes out for sasuke was hillarious, whoever did the voice acting for her was terrible.

Chunnin exam was the real deal though. I mean, Gaara anihilating those nins in forest, lee kicking naruto and sasuke ass, sasuke vs oro, sasuke vs sound, lee vs gaara, introduction of lots of new characters etc..

hey man, I voted for the exam part.

Man I love the actions in Uzumaki Naruto, and I speccialy like it when the pupils of Hatake kakashi get's stronger every episode..

I realy didn't liked to see Uzumaki Naruto mess up the whole thing in the beginning, and I am looking forward to see him teaching new stuff..

Like Uchiha Sasuke teached that 1000 birds sounds attack.. dunno the Japanese naming anymore...

Anyway, I would also love to see Haruno Sakura seeing to grow up in power.. haven't seen her in real action, besides climbing in an other person with her second personality into Oni (am I correct?)

Anyway, is Uzumaki Naruto going to teach some more actions? besides this wind attack what he is learning from jiraiya!

anyway.. that was a part of the reason

I love seeing the characters evolve from episode to episode like in the Zabuza arc and the Chuunin exam, so I really don't like the rescue or invasion arc as in my mind they didn't add anything to the overall progress of characters they just forwarded the story. Tsunade arc is okay since ero-sama is soooo hilarious.

I liked the invasion arc because of it's awesome action scenes. The chuunin tournament arc had a lot of fights but the invasion had a lot of impressive moves.
My 2nd would be the chuunin exam arc because 2 of my fave characters hina-chan and shino are introduced. As well as many other characters.

The Zabuza arc was the best. Back then, Naruto was surprising all the time. Now it's too serious and it's being focused too much on getting stronger. Where did all the funny adventures go? I'm afraid Orochimaru appearing in the Chuunin exam complicated everything

Chuunin exam arc was the most interesting and exciting. Paper test, forest of death and preliminaries too. Lots of interesing characters introduced (Gaara, Neji and a lot more) and because back then we didn't know everything about them they were more "mysterious" or something. Gaara was also a LOT cooler, then he became a clown (thought even THEN he kept interesting).

Considering the poll's result (as of now), most people seem to agree with me. ^^
The first arcs are more popular than the latter ones.

Tsunade/Rasesangan Arc is by far in my opinion the best. The current arc seems kind of boring and has lagged on. But it is nice to see into the character history as long has we don't have a whole volume of flash back no jutsu.

Or it could possibly be because far more people watch the anime than view the manga and thus haven't even see the last two arcs yet.

Not to mention even in the manga the last arc isn't even finished.

That's straight the true. I also miss the entire team mechanics, and the teamwork between Sasuke and Naruto.

Heh, funny. Zabuza arc was okay, but those fights were waaayyyy too long so it became kinda boring. Then Chuunin Exam arc was simply great. But Invasion arc was quite boring, thought I liked those Gaara flashbacks a lot and in it's end it became more exciting. Tsunade/Rasengan arc was really interesting (thought actually watching Naruto learning Rasengan wasn't :P). Rescue arc in its continual fight was too much. So I think there's good arc coming again soon.

ill have to say the chuunin exam arc.. its when he told hinata that he "likes" her, or some sort.. but the point is, he does like her.. hehehe.. not a lot of exciting moves though, but really great IMO.. the next would be the tsunade/rasengan arc.. hehehe.. love that arc.. and last, but not the least would be the invasion arc.. it was when sasuke was really AMAZED about naruto and how he became so strong... hehehe.. go for the dead last!!
