There are literally Countless hundreds of Japanese anime to be viewed, all over different genres and hence catering to different tastes. Anime is appreciated by a variety of people from various cultural backgrounds in the world. But, there are a select few that become so popular that they become translated into English either subbed, dubbed or both and published in English speaking countries. The one particular Anime want to talk about in this guide is Naruto. If you are relatively new to the anime scene, then you might have heard of Naruto but not know much about it. It is very likely you have been subjected to anime and do not realize it. Other long running and classic series comprise Dragonball, Dragonball Z, Dragonball GT, Pokemon and Bakugan. These other anime series are designed more for younger viewers, boys primarily. Naruto on the flip side, think, is richer and has a deeper theme letting it be appreciated by a wider selection of viewers whilst still appealing to young boys.
Like pretty much all Other anime, Naruto began as a manga. The story concept was conceived by Masashi Kishimoto. He also wrote and illustrated the art in the manga. The Naruto manga was published in 1999, which was subsequently turned into anime and introduced to the Japanese people in 2002. It proved to be so popular that the series was translated into English and aired in the US 2005, Canada 2005, UK 2006 and Australia 2007. Naruto remains an ongoing series. The original series has finished with 220 episodes. The present second running series is named Naruto Shippuden.
Similar to other Anime, the Naruto Filler List line is organized into arcs of tales where every arc frequently spans across several episodes. The arcs are separated by filler standalone episodes that have minimum consequential effect on the overall plot or character development. This approach differs to having only stand-alone episodes where each incident is unrelated and irrelevant on another episode. The notion of using arcs certainly has its benefits as you get to see deeper and more meaningful plots. As opposed to experiencing short spurts of orgasm and plot resolutions, you get more and grander climatic endings.
Basically, the story Revolves around a boy with the name Naruto Uzumaki who dreams of becoming a Hokage in his regional village of Konohagakure. In the first series, Naruto is 12 years old. A Hokage is highest level achievable amongst ninja positions as well as the person at this level has the additional responsibility of leading the village.
