Well, acutaly, it is VERY hard to get people to watch things sometimes. My other friend [the one that is holding the naruto] and i even try to tell her that we are not going to watch naruto and that we are going to watch somthing else like... lets say......Sweet Home Alabama, but she saw thrugh that, and now she won't tust us at all, so what i really need here are things that make the show good. Like the different elements of the show that make it far superior to other shows.

Dont force her to watch it. SOme people on these forums think naruto stinks like Shit. All you're doing is trying to stick her head into it.

But the thing is, if she starts watching it, like if she watches the first, lets say, 5 ep.s she would most probably like it given the other things she likes to watch. But the thing is, she won't watch it just to smite us, which i think is very stupid and that is why i am tring to get her to watch it.

You know, money always works if the sex doesn't.

Anyways, yeah don't force. You only make someone hate it even more.

But if you must, then think about it this way, I scratch your back you scratch mine. If you want someone to do something you gotta do something in return. I guess that would be considered a bribe? Like if she watches it, then just offer to do something in return. I mean you're forcing her to do something for you guys, so it's only right that you subject yourself(ves) to the same thing for her.

It's all about sacrifice in the end.

either all of that fancy stuff (how to screw her? he wants advice on how to get her to watch it) works... or she simply wants the attention. and she loves the cock... i mean the attention she gets ofer ALL of you guys, trying to get little old her to watch this series. if you just never ever talk to her about naruto for ~ a month, the attention will diminish and she may cave in due to curiosity...

she does not get attention from not watching it, so by watching it, maybe she can get some more? or maybe what they say is true? and it is a good story

if she likes anime that is

if she hates anime... shoot her through the head. she does not deserve to live... is what i would say....

but if she hates anime show here something that she would like (something that conforms EXACTLY to her tastes. if she likes romance, show her love hina/DNangel/Da capo/maburaho [the last two of which you will have to show here via computer])

(or is Dnangel not out on DVD yet?) (it HAS been awhile...)

and that is my 5 bazillion dollars (if everyone else was just giving 2cents.)(or fittycent)

Omg, for anyone to subject themselves to that kind of pain and torture....

That's like the ULTIMATE sacrifice. I'd, personally, rather throw myself in front of a speeding bus.

hey i watched with my gf. OF course i wasnt WATCHING the movie. but it still hurt all the same. the make outs made the pain go away then it was back to
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
kiss. *sigh*
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
u know like getting pain killers when half ure body is chopped off while being sprayed with salt, it still hurts.

once the salt stops, then it kicks in.

Go with what hobobaggins says. She's probably playing tough just because she wants more fuss and attention. Either that or she just doesn't want to watch Naruto, which isn't such a crime after all. Just leave her be, boy, leave her be.

Actually there is a thread on top of this one "here" where you can actually find your answer..I will paste opnion of two competent member who expressed the good-part of Naruto a thousand fold better than me (and I suspect most Naruto-watchers)..So its obvious why you didn't get your answers over here...Here are they:

Now that hour has arrived and i shall take out all these fustrations. Although I must admit, u made a few good points, but i intend to make it my duty to disprove each and every one of them.

now then, the character that explains everything may seem a little annoying, but it is necessary. If she did not exist, then how would we know what the hell is going on? This show has moves that we normal humans can't do, so they have to explain how these people do it, what they have that we do not.

Ur problem with the main character makes absolutly no sense. We can't even tell if this character can obtain a level above all others because he is a fricken moron in the beginning. He can't do anything right and is miles behind his rival, Sasuke. But he worked hard and is a brilliant tactition. Not just a guy who makes "a hair brained plan to save himself which happens to work". Would you be able to think up half the plans he does? I know i wouldn't.

Ok, so u think that his enemies have no history and they beat the crap out of him? Thats just being ignorant. We know very well that every villian our hero faces has a very long and often sad history (well, except the demon brothers but they were only in one episode so they don't count). Which brings me to the "useless characters just to fill it up with dialogue" that u referred to. None of the extra characters in Naruto are useless except Sakura and Ino. Each character has a story to tell, and every story is just as interesting as the main character's, maybe even more interesting. Let's take Sasuke for example: he appears to be, when we first meet him, a lone wolf and detached from all the people that strech out their hand in love and friendship to him. We find out later that he had to see his brother kill his family along with his clan. He has now dedicated his life to killing his brother to avenge his family's death. Now is that cool or what?

Finally lemme say that the villians don't get more and more powerful, just different. I personally think that Haku is stronger than neji (although that can be deliberated) but Naruto will probably have more trouble with neji because of neji's personality and fighting technique. And one more thing, sorry i just have to put this in:

IF U DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T WATCH IT!!! WHY DO U FEEL THE NEED TO BURDEN US WITH UR PROBLEM?!!

I feel better now
and the otherone is by

  • One of the ways that Naruto exceeds in its genre is the depth of characterization. Say what you will about the laziness of the plot, but there is no laziness with the characters. Absolutely noone (except those two throwaway nins at the beginning of the first mission) who was defeated before we know his history. The writer gets inside the heads of the villians as well as the heros. He makes sure that we know why they have become the way they are. What they fight for. What they dream of. Badly written fighting anime doesn't even give that much characterization to the heroes.
  • The world fits the characters exceedingly well. Some people are a bit put off by the sight of a world with technology, but also ninja. Take a closer look. It actually has all the technology of our world, except that there is no gunpowder. Instead they have super powered ninjas. The more I learn about this world the better it fits. I was impressed by it all over again when I heard the Hokage explain the checks and balances that are embodied by the Chounin exam. Then in the most recent episode (57) when I heard about why a war is about to start I was impressed again. As Machiavelli once wrote "a country that relies upon its allies for defense is despised by both its enemies and its allies alike." This sort of situation has happened in our world and caused similar problems. I've also heard a few spoilers about how the current political situation evolved 4 generations ago... let's just say that the writer is not lazy.
In short, Naruto is not lazily written. It's writing priorities are just different from the ones that you expect
I leave the convincing part to you...btw, dont tell your friend about this thread..the reason should be obvious to you...

Hahaha... all these ideas are weird. Dont listen to them... hehe. Except the reasonable ones like stickels or... whatever just sounds good.
My tip is to just go with the flow... i mean, you cant force someone to watch anime unless they're into it. I have a friend who hated anime... not really hated it. But said that anime wasnt his thing. And he watched one episode of Naruto and enjoyed it. On the other hand, i got this other friend who watched a couple episodes and thinks he's the master... which bugs the heck out of me.
