It's interesting to me because the people I talk to who still read Naruto have been telling me that the series is about to end for the last 5 years, but the author keeps avoiding it somehow.

Shounen Jump has a long standing tradition of wringing their series dry. I can't name a single series of theirs whose last chunk wasn't complete hogwash.

Didn't think I was bein' all that preachy. I just hate when a series I've liked for a long time gets discovered by the mainstream audience, only to get massacred by dumbing down, censorship, merchandise overload, etc.

God, I sound like a hipster when I say that.

To be fair, I do have a sense of taste. I just don't usually pay any attention to it.

I used to be like this. But then this attitude went kinda mainstream, so nowadays I'm not as snobbish.

I'm a hipster hipster, not like them bandwagon hipsters.

A Dragon Quest manga not drawn by Toriyama? That doesn't seem like it would be good.

I mean it's not spectacular but I found it to be worthwhile.
