What is generally considered the best Naruto arc? *spoilers*

#1marsh90Posted 7/1/2012 2:58:07 AM(edited)
Bleach has the Soul Socitey arc and One Piece's best arc is arguably the CP9 arc. So is there a Naruto arc which is considered by the majority to be the best?

EDIT: Also, in your opinion, is there a Naruto arc that can compare to OP's best? One Piece, admittedly hasn't been as great as it used to be, but I feel that OP's best beats the other Big 3's best.

Land of Waves or Sasuke's Retrieval.
Of course the game is rigged. Don't let that stop you--if you don't play, you can't win.

P1? Usually people pick either the Chunin Exams or Dr. Snakes Retrieval Arc
P2? Pein Invasion Arc
1. - Dr. Snakes at his finest.
2. - She is the truth.

Yeah, Sasuke Retrieval and Pain's Invasion are best by popular opinion.

On your second question - no. I personally think Bleach and Naruto have yet to reach One Piece's best. But that's only because Oda is a competent writer with the ability to balance screen/page-time for a massive cast of fully-developed characters. Also, 672 chapters in and the main character is only just able to match the low/mid Shichibukai - nothing to be said on the top Shichibukai, Admirals or Yonkou. Despite going on for less time, both Naruto and Bleach have propelled their main characters above every formal rank that exists.
Why One Piece is epic:

agreed, but oda also like to waste 100 chapters for a useless arc just to explain one single thing

Mainly I hear Land of Waves.

Pain Invasion was gonna be great, but that ending....
If Itachi is a God, then why with his presence does the story become extremely predictable and boring?

Chuunin exams, my personal favorite.

In TS I think Hidan and Kakuzu arc (if that's even an arc)
We have water, moss, moisture, these nice iron bars...

Part I: Land of Waves, Chunin Exams, Sasuke Retrieval are all regarded highly
Part II: Pain Invasion
