So many awesome battles but Naruto Vs Pain was epic!
My fave part of that one was when Naruto takes out God realm Pain and yells out to him "Why don't you give up on trying to stop me?". Or even the bit at the end when Pain revives all the people he killed since he invaded Konoha after Naruto decides against killing him to honor Jiraiya and what he taught Naruto. That part I found very moving.
And the the character Pain/Nagato is overated. Personally I liked the introduction of J man and Itachi the most.
Sandaime V orochimaru was also great. It was the first real S class fight and I would argue because of the way the animators depicted it in the anime it is the best fight we've seen so far in terms of entertainment. It was cool that trhe fight went along side Garaa v Naruto.
Zabuza and Haku v Team Kakashi was cool too.
My favorite chapter would have to be the first chapter... every time I read it, the nostalgia and emotional impact almost moves me to tears.
I also really like Itachi's "Sorry, Sasuke" moment.
The Jiraiya/Naruto training scenes are always good.
Naruto's big entrance against Pain, and the following several chapters, just fill my bucket full of epic.
Lol although i dont get moved to tears, i agree the first chapter is definitely very nostalgic and fun to look at

I also really like reading the first chapter, but the typos in the first chapter on One Manga are so numerous and terrible, I'd really like to fix them haha
I miss the excitement of the mystery surrounding the 4th Hokage, and the days when Orochimaru was prima badass numero uno.
The manga use to be so good.
Join the Oro shall return and reign supreme once more club............actually never

Part 1 to me conveyed a better sense of companionship and teamwork with the emphasis on the Rookie 9 and that's what I enjoyed reading through the most, thus my favorite parts in Naruto will reflect that(not in any particular order):
Sasuke vs Orochimaru(chuunin exam)
3rd Hokage's speach about the Leaf and Will of Fire.
Orochimaru's counterpoint about self gain.
Rock Lee's story
Chouji's speach on the importance of his friendship with Shikamaru and detailing their rlationship.
Naruto vs Sasuke of course. The quintessential Naruto fight imo.
Iruka treating Naruto to some Ramen after he defeated Tony and gave him the headband.

Itachi owning people is always fun to watch
I waz really excited the 1st time akatsuki leader pain was introduced, I thought, what were those cool piercing and wierd eyes, and he was from the royal fuuma clan and he took cotrol of rain country?! Cool! Of course then I gradually got bored as I found out akatsuki leader was in fact 6 lame puppets under control of Jiraiya's emo ex pupil who was in turn a puppet under evil jedi darklord darth Madara. How booring
I have an awesome pic of itachi owning Kakashi here, that was also cool
Jiraiya's genjutsu momment was also pawnage.
