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.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Naruto received numerous awards during its airing, including the "Best Full-Length Animation Program Award" in the Third UStv Awards and the 38th "Best Animated Show" in IGN's Top 100 Animated Series.

be honest, Naruto is the most overhyped show in existence. Everyone goes on and on and on about how great it is; and my expectations for this show was equally high. However, I was really, really let down. Really. This wasn't the best show ever, as I had thought it would be. Don't get me wrong, the show is enjoyable, but it's definitely not among the best shows out there. I hope Shippuden will better than this... much better.

The concept of this show isn't that hard to follow. It's an alternate world in which ninjas live. The ninjas fight by using various skills, and they ...

Mixed Feelings
I never watched the show as a kid. Ignoring filler this show is decent and actually has some hype moments. Even though it's a prologue the world building is very weak. At most kishimoto is setting up narutos class mates which I really don't find likeable at all. The show has about 5 arcs but only 2 of them really matter. The tsunada arc sucked ass and was really a monster of the week shit. It could have been 2 episodes seriously. Only positivew with the show is it has some really cool fight scenes and unique small town atmosphere.

Uh what a bad anime.

Classic zero to hero story. But it's a very lazy story and full of bullshit.
The power balance of the characters is ridiculous. Very weak characters can suddenly get power-ups and be victorious. The relationship between Sasuke and Naruto makes me to my stomach. It seems so fake that people who hate each other so much have weird love.

The visuals are very bad as they have to shoot so many episodes. There is almost no fighting animation. Have silly word duels.
