Moments before Naruto Uzumaki's birth, a huge demon known as the Nine-Tailed Fox attacked Konohagakure, the Hidden Leaf Village, and wreaked havoc. In order to put an end to the demon's rampage, the leader of the village, the Fourth Hokage, sacrificed his life and sealed the monstrous beast inside the newborn Naruto.

In the present, Naruto is a hyperactive and knuckle-headed ninja growing up within Konohagakure. Shunned because of the demon inside him, Naruto struggles to find his place in the village. His one burning desire to become the Hokage and be acknowledged by the villagers who despite him. However, while his goal leads him to unbreakable bonds with lifelong friends, it also lands him in the crosshairs of many deadly foes.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

It 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.

Really good show that is understandable on why it is considered a iconic and great show.
Looking back "Naruto" is really good and is hard for me to critique though you can see the flaws that are about to happen at any point aka most of "Naruto Shippuden" but that will be talked about a other day. The show is about Naruto who is hated because he has a Demon Fox inside of him by the village which is never shown again besides the first episode and no one really hates Naruto for it besides his personality. In the beginning if the show the characters are ...

Mixed Feelings
When people look at Naruto, they tend to look at it through the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia. And while that's fine, unfortunately, for someone who did not grow up with it, for someone whose major piece of media consumed was not Naruto, it mostly turns out to be just fine.

The show starts off well - all the characters are shown to work towards a common goal, the goal of being a great shinobi. There are some pervy jokes thrown around here and there, but the story is mostly made to appeal to those who can relate to the childish aspect of the characters, the ...

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.
