Review: Naruto

Plot Summary:
Naruto closely follows the life of a boy who is feared and detested by the villagers of the hidden leaf village of Konoha. The distrust of the boy has little to do with the boy himself, but it’s what’s inside him that causes anxiety. Long before Naruto came to be, a Kyuubi (demon fox) with great fury and power waged war taking many lives. The battle ensued for a long time until a man known as the Fourth Hokage, Yondaime, the strongest ninja in Konoha, fiercely fought the Kyuubi. The fight was soon won by Yondaime as he sealed the evil demon in a human body. Thus the boy, Naruto, was born. As Naruto grows he decides to become the strongest ninja in Konoha in an effort to show everyone that he is not as they perceive him to be, but is a human being worthy of love and admiration. But the road to becoming Hokage, the title for the strongest ninja in Konoha, is a long and arduous one. It is a path filled with betrayal, pain, and loss; but with hard work, Naruto may achieve Hokage.

Naruto Uzumake is a boy, who has contained the kyuubi demon since he was a baby, now he has grown up, despised for whats inside of him, Naruto trys his hardest to become reconized and hopefully fullfill his dream of becoming Hokage, the leader of his village Konoha.

I have been watching this anime for over two years now and going. It has aired on Cartoon Network Adult Swim the past couple of months dubbed over. I prefer the original japanese with the subtitles, because the dubbed over episodes dont sound right, and I am far ahead with the series then the one being aired on Cartoon Network.
This is an immenesly successful anime, with a fantastic story line and endless array of characters. The story of course surrounds Naruto, but you get to know all the other characters which make it even more interesting. Once you start watching this series you get caught up more and more, because there are a lot of good story lines with a few fillers. They have also made a Naruto Movie.


The main story line is the one that draws you in, and I find Naruto to be an amazing character and there is so much to him. Also you can see the development of the other characters through the story lines. Each one of the developing new Ninja techniques to use in the field. Sometimes there are filler episodes inbetween major storylines or just to give some space and thats what kills, because you want to know whats happening next. This show airs every wednesday in Japan, and so we get the subtitled torrents by thursday or friday at the latest thanks to Dattebayo. And this show is at season 8 and still going strong.

A good source to keep up with Naruto is Narutofan they always have updated information about the anime and the manga, and they have many things explained in their library of information.
