You callin' me out? 10/10. I have always loved Naruto's core personality and always will. Characters change and develop as a story progresses, but at his core, Naruto always retained his same can do spirit and personality. Yes, he had character flaws, but that is what makes a character human. I honestly don't give a crap about the whole 'child of destiny', reincarnated son of the Sage business behind Naruto and his rise to the top. I'm more interested in his personal journey than in whether he is a child of destiny or a rebirth of a past soul (who failed in achieving his destiny). In spite of all his 'gifts' (his lineage, both spiritual and physical, and his Jinchuuriki status) Naruto still had to fight his way to where he is. Nothing was handed to him on a silver platter--he had to work for his growing achievements, relying on his never give up attitude and his ability to connect with others. Naruto may have appeared to be a dead last who came up from nothing, but from the beginning he was the Fourth's son: He was always special, but neither his world nor his readers knew just how special. Doesn't bother me in the least.
