naruto-retro1Post Author: Bob

Heya folks,

Some might have noticed my spotty coverage of Naruto manga posts over the last months, heck I think I missed 2 or 3 chapters in a roll now. Unfortunately work and family commitments have caught up to me to the point where even sparing an hour or two a week to write up a thoughtful analysis on my favorite manga is not happening. My original plan was to push on until at least the current arc has concluded, but it doesn’t look like I will be able to accomplish that goal. It’s been a looong run though, and I’m proud of what I have accomplished with this blog as well as the original Naruto Hurricane site. My first Naruto chapter write up was in 2006, and I started officially blogging in early 2008 — that’s over six years of writing about Naruto, and I’m damn proud of it all. At the peak of the Shannaro!!! blog’s running history, we had over 15 active authors and it was a scramble every week to schedule in post submissions while our backlog of posts kept building up. To those people who have stuck around since those early days, whether as a reader, commenter, or author, I want to thank you all for making this place so special to our fellow Naruto fans.

I will stay on as caretaker to the blog and do all the maintenance duties I have always done. I would imagine further Naruto chapter discussions will continue on in the weekly “It’s Out” posts like they have always been (I still moderate comments closely, so don’t think just because the cat’s away….).

I’m also open to anyone who wishes to carry on the torch and continue with the weekly Naruto manga blog posts. If you have good writing skills and an eye for detail, send me an email at b0buchiha@yahoo.com and we can talk.

Anyways, thanks for the fun trip guys, it’s been one fun journey.

  14. see ya bob-o, no you shall truely live up to the moniquer “silent bob” too bad J already left…. anyway good luck with whatever animal you decide to strap a laser to and drop from the sky.

  15. thx Bob for your posts and website work over the years.

    While I find it unlikely someone else will do as well as bob… I do hope someone else’s takes over and soon (a non bob naruto chapter post is better then no naruto chapter post).

  16. I started watching Naruto in fall of 2006 when it debuted on Cartoon Network here in the States. Somehow I stumbled onto Narutohurricane (Shannaro’s mother website that Bob had stopped updating a year or so ago) in the Spring of ’07 and I’ve been reading weekly ever since.

    No offense to the other authors we’ve had do the chapter analysis, but no one strikes the right balance of humor, cynicism and insight like Bob has. I appreciate the proper sentence structure and grammar.

    Anyway, when we get through all these Uchiha stuff and the series finishes up, I hope Bob will come out of retirement for a little bit to say his two cents.

    You know I was about to submit your obituary as a contribution.

  17. All you need now Bob is one of those anime flashbacks like so many of our favorite dead Naruto characters….then after you’re gone we’ll have to summon an Edo-Bob to take your place and keep writing. 🙂 Farewell my man…take care!

  18. Hey Bob I been u since 06 and still reads there post u and others post and I always enjoyed they thanks to u Bob and many others authors 🙂
    Bob I understand about family responsibilities because I been married a couple yrs and time is hard to buy out of the week, so I know u will show up every now and then 🙂

  19. I not to mention my buddies appeared to be checking out the nice solutions from your web site and so unexpectedly came up with a terrible feeling I had not thanked you for those techniques. My men became for this reason glad to read through them and have in reality been loving these things. I appreciate you for genuinely simply considerate as well as for getting this form of exceptional subject areas most people are really needing to discover. My sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to sooner.
