Ooh I'll read that when I get home. For the most part, I love Naruto in part II more than part I, even

Thanks! ^^

That's actually surprising. Most people prefer Part one Naruto over part two. The main problem they have with him is Kishi lack of showing how much Naruto improved. Yet they miss the fact that Naruto's develop is handled differently than that of Sasuke, Shikamaru, and Sakura. Instead of getting spotlight in one arc, Naruto gets slow development throughout the entire manga.

I think he's just more interesting here; I love that he's as self-destructive as Sasuke is in some ways. It's because I love team seven.

Making the day even better.

Reading anything you write puts me in a happy mood mainly cause I find myself thinking the same things. I adore Naruto in both parts, but something in part II seems way different so I am more attracted to his character there as well. And you are totally right about Kishimoto handling his development differently. I actually prefer it this way as opposed to the other characters getting crazy power ups from no where. XD Oh...thanks for also adding manga scans to the essay. Now I have an excuse to make icons. THNX.

Thanks. :)

Well, great minds think alike. >:D As for part two Naruto, maybe it's his clothes? LOL. Thank God he got rid of the blue. :X I'm glad you and and some others see it the way I do. Makes me feel less retarded. xD

NO PROB. ZOMG ICONS!? *insert Mr.WTF here*

ppl dissed naruto?
...I read your post there and well, ppl who diss naruto really diss everyone...because if you hate the most awesome character in the series, who has an awesome personality (thus proving his awesomeness more) then you just don't like anybody. except sasuke. most of the dissers tend to like sasuke more....he's just gotten so full of himself it's sickening...i hope he sees the error in his ways when he kills his brother...

Hey darkhope! Awesome defense essay. I honestly don't see how anyone could hate lovable ol' Naruto. Thanks for this! Oh and hay
(I come to you because I have no other NaruHina people to talk too ;_;) what's your opinion on last week's chapter cover? http://groups.msn.com/NarutoMangaReturns/narutochapter371english.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=45012

Could he be meeting with Hinata? I totally hope so. I mean, if it were Sakura, would Masashi just say it? I don't know. It seems like he's talking about someone else. I think he's trying to drive me crazy.

Sorry to bother you! <3

Hi! ^^ You aren't bothering me at all. xD

Awww there are ALOT of NaruHina peeps to talk to. Look at the community. But I don't mind talking to you. <3

Well it's possible it's Hinata. Sakura sure isn't an "old" friend. I'd say either Hinata or Sasuke. But the girlfriend reference is pretty... hm. ;) He's made that wave to Hinata in a filler--episode 176.

True! I'd say it works in our favor because Hinata just happens to be in this arc..
It could be anyone, but eh. I'll keep my hopes up.

If any of us get time, maybe we can talk on AIM?

Anyway. I'll catch you on AIM sometime! C:
