Naruto (JP)

Naruto (JP)

Twelve years ago, the Hidden Leaf Village of Konoha was attacked by a Nine-Tailed Demon Fox. The battle had been fought for a long time and casualties were many when Yondaime, most powerful ninja in all of Konoha, managed to finally seal the demon inside a little boy, Naruto Uzumaki.

Because of the demon sealed inside him, Naruto is feared by the citizens of Konoha. He is an outcast, his only friend being his teacher, Iruka. Because of the hardships he has had to endure, Naruto develops a strong willpower. He trains intensively in hopes of proving everyone that he isn't the "demon boy," but instead a human being worthy of recognition. He is determined to become Hokage, the strongest ninja in Konoha!

Naruto is an anime based on the popular manga of the same name created by mangaka Masashi Kishimoto for Weekly Shonen Jump. It has aired on Japanese TV channel TV Tokyo since 2002. In 2005, Naruto started airing in the U.S. on Cartoon Network's Toonami.

A guide for Naruto's dubbed version airing in the U.S. can be found here.

Naruto and his friends continue their adventures in the follow-up to the original show, Naruto: Shippuuden.

Whoever voted this a 1/10 is a craphole.

Anyways I love this show very much. It is based on the manga by Masashi Kishimoto and is about a 12 year old boy named Naruto that's been shunned and rejected by his village for having Kyuubi Kitsune sealed inside of him that causes mass destruction. But he has one dream he has always had, to become Hokage or Village Ruler. (Translated = Fire Shadow) He goes on a journey with his team Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi-sensei to become better ninjas than before. It will be very tough though. Read more

The three Genin enter with Tazuna, happy to find Kakashi awake, they all wonder about the happenings of the past few days. As Kakashi thinks, he explains the job of the ANBU. It then pans to the masked boy and the body of Zabuza, as the boy goes to remove the bandages from Zabuza's face, he reaches up and holds the boys arm. Doing it himself, Zabuza's mouth is filled with sharp shark like teeth, and pulls out the two long needles from his neck... read more.

1x9: Kakashi the Sharingan User recap: Naruto’s kunai knife goes through the path between Zabuza’s hand and Kakashi’s barrier. He lifts his hand out, releasing Kakashi. Naruto is proud of himself, having used the shadow replication technique to hid that he transformed into a Fuuma shuriken. He had no intention of defeating Zabuza. He left one of his replicas and transformed into a Fuuma shuriken, which he then threw to Sasuke, who used his own technique. He hid in the shadow of the shuriken until he got close enough and then broke the water prison... read more.

1x8: Decision Sworn on Pain recap: The opening replays the battle between Kakashi and Zabuza leading up to Zabuza's capture. Naruto and co are impressed that Kakashi has declared the match over. Zabuza taunts him, declaring that Kakashi won’t be able to capture him so easily. He then appears behind Kakashi and kicks him backwards. Kakashi disappears into the river as Zabuza chases him with his big-ass sword (think Cloud in FF7). He sees makibishi (throwing nails) in the dirt and dives in the river. Kakashi emerges, trapped in Water Prison no Jutsu, as the tide has turned in Zabuza's favor. He then clones himself and goes after the three young ninjas. He strikes Naruto and knocks the headband off his head... read more.
