Eh... I seem to have gotten sucked in by Naruto. *blush*

Actually, I spent the weekend watching tons of Naruto episodes and have come to the conclusion that this is a really good series. I didn't think so before, because here (in Germany) it's being promoted as a kiddies series. And after I'd seen what they'd done to the original anime (I wonder that there's still anythink *left* of each episode to watch after the censors have gotten through with it), I realized that no, this is *not* a series for little kids - it's actually quite serious. And so... I ended up watching.

Now, I have a request of my flist:

Can you recommend any *good* Naruto ff? Preferrably angsty, well written, mature contents (not only sex, but the story, too), focussing on Sasuke and his brother? Smut optional.

I'd be much oblidged...

*hides in embarrassement*

They're among some of the best (and most prolific) Naruto ficcers on my flist.

As for Naruto itself, no, it's not for small children, but neither is it *intended* for adults -- then again, an adult writing a story for 15 year old boys doesn't always mean you get pap. Sometimes it means you get an adult-level complexity in the story, because the author is still young enough to recall that kids are capable of handling it.

Naruto is a rather unusual shonen-genre story, at that.

Thank you for the recs. I started going through them and reading - oh my, I think I'm going to have a problem, time-wise. ^^

Adult-level complexity in japanese Animes is what I truly love about them. They don't think that kids are stupid and brain-dead, just because they are kids. Here, they cut everything down to the level of 6 year olds... No matter what the series. *sigh*
