Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto was one of the ex ‘big three’ and has been around for around 15 years and has just recently ended in early 2017. With a whooping 700 chapters, 500 episodes ( i think the anime is still ongoing, correct me if i’m wrong) and 11 movies, Naruto is considered one of the hottest Anime/manga that has ever been created! YES, NARUTO IS THAT LEGENDARY!!
Naruto was a really big thing back in my days. It was the very first anime that i watched and it is what made me into the geek that i am today!hehehe(◕‿◕✿) I can still recall my friend requesting me to draw Naruto fan arts for them in primary school, ah those were the times! (￣∇￣) I’m pretty sure most Anime/manga fans know of naruto, unless you’re totally new to the industry. Well if you are a newbie, now you know! (*´∇｀*)
So basically Naruto is a Shounen manga, with lots of action, adventure and comedy thrown into it. It is set in a fictional world where cool a** ninjas exist! The story takes place in a village called Kohonagakure/木ノ葉隠れの里/ Konoha village ( i put in the japanese characters cuz it looks cool okay) which translates into The village of the hidden leaf.

Yes folks, it is a beautiful ninja village (￣▽￣)
Okay let’s start by introducing the characters that will play a major role in this series.
Our Main character is Naruto Uzumaki(うずまきナルト), an orphaned boy who is constantly being isolated by not only the kids in the ninja academy but also always the gossip of the village folks for some reason that i will not tell you (｀▽´) ( btw don’t do this kids, isolating people is no good)
But how can you do that to poor little naruto?! I mean C’mon folks! look at that happy go lucky look of his!
Anyways, he might be smol and silly but kid has a big dream!
And then we have Sasuke Uchiha(うちはサスケ), The
Little shit cool but proud kid that is popular as f**k with the girls in the academy. His good looks and amazing skillz making The ladies’ heart go doki-doki and their eyes go heart-shaped as they swoon whenever he walks by （￣ε￣）
C’mon ladies! He ain’t even look that hot ఠ ͟ಠ……
But on second thought, maybe he does look a bit cute (☉_☉) hmm must be something to do with the poker face of his.
But anyway sure he’s a cool lad but he’s an a**hole
Moving on, we have Sakura Haruno(うちはサクラ), the cute little pinky in the bunch. (◡‿◡✿) She is pretty much the most ordinary out if the group (for now anyway)
She’s just a kawaii girl, a kawaii ninja girl, that has a crush on our
little bitch Sasuke (ʘ‿ʘ✿)
Oh and did i mention Naruto has a crush on her? (✧≖‿ゝ≖)
Next up, we have Kakashi Hatake (はたけカカシ)
MY BABY♡♡♡, also known as the copy ninja, why? watch the anime, i’m not gonna spoil it for you (★≧▽^))★☆
As you can see from the picture, Kakashi is an awesome guy, everything about him just screams ‘Cool’. (º﹃º )
I can’t say much about him as that would be spoilers but overall he’s a talented ninja and there’s a lot of mysteries surrounding him
And legend says that nobody has ever seen him maskless….(ㆆᴗㆆ)
There are a lot of cool characters in this series but the above four are more of the main ones.
The series has two parts, the first part takes place during Naruto’s preteen years and the second part relvolves around Naruto in his teens. Overall the series is sort of a ‘ zero to hero’ story. It talks about Naruto’s journey in achieving his dreams, the adventures he’s gone to, The disappointments, failure, sorrow he’s been through and the things he’s learned and gained throughout his journey *ahem* friendship *ahem*（´∀`）
The series is just amazing, the settings, the character developments, the art and the storyline, everything is just fantastic! And if you’ve seen Naruto before, you can tell that the message that the series is trying to deliver is to ‘Follow your dreams and Never Give up’ in which some scenarios are a bit relatable to real life if you squint closely at it.
Naruto is just not about the serious action stuff as it also has it’s fun and comedic side to it and not to mention lots of surprises as well. It just makes you want to keep on reading/watching to know what’s going to happen next. One moment you might be laughing and the next thing you know, you’re on the edge of your seat.
And oh believe me, these series doesn’t just have cool a** ninjas but it also has onion-cutting ninjas hiding in the shadows ಠ_ಠ, ready to cut those onions at the right moment, making you tear up and cry like a baby. ಥ_ಥ
It is an amazing series, yep not gonna lie, it is just wow. The series just makes you feel……. things. (º﹃º )
So if you haven’t watched Naruto before and has tons of free time on your hands, i would recommend you to check out Naruto.why? because:
- It is an awesome series
- It has a shit ton of chapters
- It’s classic
- It’s a good binge ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Alrighty folks! that’s all for today! Thanks for reading and comment below on your thoughts. I’ll see you guys next time! Byebye!(⺣◡⺣)♡*
