You are within my range! Divine Strikes 64 Palms!~Neji Hyuuga
~~~~WANRNING THIS MIGHT BE A KID'S SHOW!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My friend introduced me to this one, in an attempt to get me back into Naruto Shippuuden maybe? I don't know I have a bit of catching up to do, but guess what! I enjoy this more than the Shippuuden series, if you want me to desparately like the second the series well I'm sorry to announce this is good as it gets, ~~~~~~SPOILERS~~~~~~~~~~
(ekusas dna aradam sllik dna kcab semoc aguuuyH ijeN sselnu) revese the spelling if you are desparate for that spoiler if not read on!
What I like
If you read my Naruto review you'll learn about what made me love Naruto in the first place
this series represents the love I had for the for the series, it stuck with the main characters and if you paid good attention to the first review you'll learn who my favorite characters are
Neji Hyuuga ladies and gentleman is a MAIN CAHARACTER!! It's like they read my brainwave patterns and said "we don't want to lose Jor-Allairis' viewership! Let's make Neji Hyuuga a main character! Let's make a nonsensical comedy featuring only characters from the origianl series with cameos from Yamato and the like from the second series!
This is my series of Naruto, the series I like over Shippuuden yeah I will say that with pride because
They use the jutsu for pretty much nonsensical things like starting a fire and even Neji's 64 strike attack is the form of the punchline! Funny stuff right there
This is a kid's show I believe but I like it why? Because it has Neji as a main character!
What I don't like
I really don't know, it has my favorite characters from Naruto, ok uhm maybe it gets repetitive once in awhile, but I still like it
I am actually praising the series in my dislike section, proof that I do like a Naruto series that isn't the original!
ALL in ALL
This series is comical and humorous unlike the cluttered mess of Shipuuden, and the hijinx is quite good especially the latest episdoes which are starting to feature the Akatsuki a bit more
I just finished the series, and I'm quite sad it's over, I don't know if'd I ever feel that way about Shippuuden, because well I think I explained enough, but look I'll talk about the series itself "Rock Lee and His Ninja Pals" for once; instead of dodging what it is actually about and saying it's better than Shippuuden.
The series revolves around Rock and His Ninja Pals, the series takes place during the Shippuuden era of Naruto, but it stops right there, it doesn't really include the newer characters from Shippuuden which I hate, so that itself is a plus for me... well they show up in one episode and then are gone, so I'm ok with that, and I'm at least aware of who they are because I keep up with the main series once in awhile, but I back to this series, it does not take itself seriously, I like that, the show uses the powers the kids have and using them when they aren't particularly needed, and the only fights they tend to have and actually participate in are against Rock Lee and Ninja Pals frauds or against Orochimaru, OH MY GOD! FREAKING OROCHIMARU, his appearance in the final episode had me laughing and almost crying because of how he is used in this series, he has become a joke of his actual self which is recognised in the show itself, and that's another thing I love about this show, it is so self aware of itself, it sometimes compares itself to the main show and it always just gets brushed off.
If you ask me I will say of course that I will recommend this series over Shippuuden but you need to have a working knowledge of Shippuuden first before you sit down to watch this series, like have a friend who knows all about Naruto and ask him about specific characters that appear in this show, so you will know about their quircks because that is also the strength of this show, is showing the characters almost like they are in the main series but pushing something to a really fast paced funny extreme that doesn't make sense... so yeah I'd actually say to watch this with a friend instead if you don't know much about Naruto but wanna have a good laugh or you have a great knowledge about the series and feel betrayed by the series: Shippuuden like myself but still wanna enjoy the show in some form or fashion, then this series is for you!!!
