Welcome to Anime of the week number 32. Do you like fast moving hands? This anime is for you! The anime is Naruto
Naruto Aired: Oct 3, 2002 to Feb 8, 2007 (Fall 2002)
Naruto Shippuuden Aired: Feb 15, 2007 to Mar 23, 2017 (Winter 2007)
Moments prior to Naruto Uzumaki’s birth, a huge demon known as the Kyuubi, the Nine-Tailed Fox, attacked Konohagakure, the Hidden Leaf Village, and wreaked havoc. In order to put an end to the Kyuubi’s rampage, the leader of the village, the Fourth Hokage, sacrificed his life and sealed the monstrous beast inside the newborn Naruto.
Now, Naruto is a hyperactive and knuckle-headed ninja still living in Konohagakure. Shunned because of the Kyuubi inside him, Naruto struggles to find his place in the village, while his burning desire to become the Hokage of Konohagakure leads him not only to some great new friends, but also some deadly foes.
Naruto is an absurdly long anime, that actually has a pretty good story. Yeah there is a lot of filler episodes, but some of them are actually good. I love it how smooth the fight scenes are. The character development is amazing in this. Most people are just kids, so they are very weak, but they train constantly, so they are able to actually fight strong opponents. Their emotions are real, and you can actually feel the pain they do. The music is kind of repetitive, but the music feels right for the moments. I would rewatch this, but oh my god there is just too much. I know people who have, but thats 220 episodes just for Naruto itself.
