The popular manga series—written and illustrated by the legendary Masashi Kishimoto— has sold over 235 million copies worldwide, and many regard it as having some of the strongest character development in anime. Wowzah!
Due to the overwhelming success of the manga, Studio Pierrot and Aniplex adapted the black and white pages into an anime that first premiered in Japan in October 2002 and aired for five seasons until February 2007.
The show ushered in a brand-new generation of fans, spawning sequels (Naruto Shippuden, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations), video games, OVAs, and more!
Synopsis: Twelve years ago, Konohagakure, a village hidden within a vast, dense forest was attacked by a monstrous nine-tailed beast known as Kurama. Desperate to halt the city’s destruction, the leader of the village (or Hokage) sacrificed his life, sealing the demon within baby Naruto Uzumaki. Now older, Naruto struggles to find his place within the village, but his dream to become the next great Hokage begins with him becoming a part of Team 7. The young ninja’s bonds of friendship will be put to the test as dark, sinister evils begin to move from the shadows into the light!
