Once, a nine-tailed demon fox attacked Konoha, the Hidden Village of the Leaf. Many brave ninjas lost their lives
defending their home. Finally, the demon was sealed by the Fourth Hokage into a human body. Several years later, that
boy, Uzumaki Naruto, struggles to gain the acceptance and
acknowledgement of the villagers, many of whom still hate him because of the demon inside him. So, Naruto strives to
become the Hokage, the strongest ninja in the village, so that the villagers will acknowledge him. Along the way, he
gains many new friends, and faces many life-threatening situations.
Overall, for me, Naruto was extremely enjoyable when it started out, the first season was gripping, original exciting. But as the story pressed on, it drifted way to close to the generic shonen show territory, which irked me more than any, because the show really had potential to be something great and instead it chose the safe rout: something that will guarantee to keep it running for quite some time, but it won't turn out to be anything spectacular.
Well, I loved this anime so much at first. But when the shippuden started, I lost my interest, especially because they broke off the main series and added too many fillers. The story is good overall though I prefer reading the manga. :)Tigger2195 rated 9.00:
Naruto is a good anime, but I have to say the manga is a lot better. You don't have to watch all the filler episodes. I really like where it's going, but I think its been going on for a little too long. All in all its a really good series.SilverCat-sama rated 7.00:
Seriously, this series are great at first n then it become boring. I'm not sure becoz it's too long or bcoz I dont like
Sasuke's personalities development. I just dun wanna watch the next episode or even read the manga again until I know
it's already finish.
The stories itsef r great n entertaining. Its about a young boy, Naruto, who wants to be a Hokage (the leader/greatest ninja I guess). Even though he is kinda stupid, etc. But he can prove us what he can do. N actually he isnt really stupid, bcoz he is smart sometimes (like when he fights some enemies), n he is talented too (he learned a difficult scroll just in one night). He also a very very very best friend u can ever have (I hate n envy u, Sasuke).
Good humor, too. The battle scenes also cool.
I've seen about 100 episodes. It is exciting, fun and cool, but It's very long and open so it gets pretty boring sometimes. What bothers me is that you never get to see enough of the most intersting people (Naruto, Saksuke and Sakura)riotcook rated 9.00:
I don't see Naruto since.. fillers! I HATE THEM. It's so boring knowing that in the manga so much people die, so much things happen and in the anime don't. But I think I can't stop loving it. Naruto was one of the animes I watched from the start, and moved me so much. Ok, I will stop talking, 'cause if not...
