these powers are getting stupid

#1 Posted by green mage (33 posts) - - Show Bio

does anyone agree that some of these powers listed under naruto and the other ninja are a bit much. i dont think they should list almost every jutsu as a new power it should just be classified as magic unless its a bloodline trait. doesnt jutsu translate to spell anyway?

Naruto was always stupid.

Anime always got on my nerves. Then they put in all this trash on TV putting good shows out of block schedules.

Anyways.......No. Jutsu translates as technique not spell.

you guys missed the point. just becauses jet li could find 50 different ways to kill someone doesnt mean you should list them all as powers they would all be unarmed combat. i just used naruto and the other ninja as an example because they seemed to be the worst example of this.

"...here is a hint if it was a good program it would still be on the schedule it had before."

Obviously. Either that 'good program' had mediocre/bad ratings, or the station felt they could gain more by putting on a popular anime that all the kids would enjoy. It's all about the money. They don't really care about the quality of the show that much. If it brings them money and people like it, then they'll use it for profit.

I just don't find replacing a classic cartoon with a serious show on the same network. Serious animations should get their own seperate channel. And Comedic cartoons should remain where they are.

Ive never been a fan of Naruto (despite the avatar. Honestly, he just looks a bit like how I draw my character) but I dont mind if people want to write out all of there moves. The way I see it someone could find it useful and it gets the authors points. Thats all there is too it.

Cartoons are cartoons. They can get their own segment with cartoons alike (Like Toonami and Adult Swim). But, other than that, it doesn't really matter

Too true! How am I supposed to react to an Unagi-Sisugerchi-Tanki-lkfhgwonbtionetop attack if I have absolutely no idea what it is and the RPer just adds it's "aimed at me".

O_O

Are we seriously having this discussion?

In regard to the original post:

The problem comes from the fact that each character has a very limited array of abilities. Listing 'magic' pretty much throws the book of abilities in their favour and makes it impossible to quantify what a particular character can do at a glance.

The powers are there to give you an at a glance preview of what they can do, Just seeing 'magic' under every page would be pointless.

I suppose it comes down to: if you don't like it, why complain that you are looking at something you don't like?

i get your point but some of the powers listed are used by every ninja and seeing that on every page is just as pointless as magic. i think you should list some of their favorite moves like naruto's feral ability and duplication since he always use his shadow clone jutsu but things like super strength, super speed, gadgets shouldnt be posted. their ninja of course theyre going to be strong and fast and use gadgets anyone who want to gage the characters power doesnt need to know that
