Patrick Bateman: Do you like Naruto?
Paul Allen: It’s OK.
Patrick Bateman: The early arcs were a little too romance-focused for me, but when the Chuunin Exam arc came out in 2003, I think it really came into its own, commercially and artistically. The whole arc has clear, crisp action, and a new amount of interesting characters they really give the show a big boost. Its been compared to Dragonball Z, but I think Naruto has a far more dynamic, engaging cast.
Paul Allen: Hey Halberstram.
Patrick Bateman: Yes, Allen?
Paul Allen: Why are there copies of the style section all over the place, d-do you have a dog? A little chow or something?
Patrick Bateman: No, Allen.
Paul Allen: Is that a rain coat?
Patrick Bateman: Yes it is! In ‘10, Kishimoto released this, The Invasion of Pain, his most accomplished arc. I think his undisputed masterpiece is the Naruto vs. Pain arc, with action so stuning, most people probably don’t pay attention to the themes. But they should, because it’s not just about the power of friendship, and the importance of peace, it’s also a personal statement about the manga itself.
